MLSGB has joined up with the Radio Cascadia podcast for the 2018 season, giving our readers the chance to catch up on all the latest news from the Pacific Northwest, where MLS clubs Portland Timbers, Seattle Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps look to continue to dominate the Western Conference.
Radio Cascadia is a weekly podcast and is an authoritative steward of the Cascadian perspective, representing the most passionate, unified and unique fan bases in the country. Their passion is well justified, not only by the clubs’ nearly fifty years of shared history but also thanks to rampant success in the MLS era.
Even a rather embarrassing CONCACAF Champions League exit, some red cards and a couple league defeats since Ep. 143 can’t put the RC crew in a bad mood. John Marshall, Michael McColl, Niko Moreno and Ari Liljenwall all stop by to talk about the most controversial decisions of the past week as well as to preview the coming weekend’s Cascadia contests.
Portland travel to Dallas in search of a first positive result of the season — Ed Pham gives his take on a possible Timbers lineup as the group speculates on what game plan could take a result. Meanwhile in Vancouver, the Whitecaps host the only home game in the region this weekend as LA Galaxy stop by BC Place on Saturday night. Ola Kamara and a host of other starters are unavailable for Sigi Schmid, and we explore how Vancouver can take advantage of the situation with both Michael McColl and John Marshall. A review of the World Cup host situation also features in Ep. 144.
