FTBL Podcast: Episode 18

USA TODAY Sports

Preseason matches, new signings, rumours and much, much more...

Yup, another week of preseason footy has passed and that means another episode of From the Backline for your listening enjoyment. There is a lot to talk about this week including (but not limited to): the Matias Laba signing, Vancouver Whitecaps pre-season action from the Rose City Invitational in Portland, OR and even a discussion on whether or not relegation would ever work in the North American professional soccer landscape.  Finally we finish this week's show with our memorable match of the week (hint: look at the picture included for this article if you can't wait until the end of the podcast to find out exactly which match it is).
