FTBL Podcast: Episode 19

Scarves Up! Whitecaps fans everywhere are excited for the new season. - USA TODAY Sports

Russell Berrisford from the Vancouver Sun visits to discuss the recent wave of signings, the season opener and even talks a little Derby County and their hopes of promotion to the Premier League

Whoooosh! In case you were wondering (or not) what that was that just flew by, it was the MLS off-season.  For Vancouver Whitecaps fans it has certainly been an offseason to remember for both the right and wrong reasons.  To help us make a little more sense of all that has happened since the beginning of the year Russell Berrisford from the Vancouver Sun drops by to discuss the new players, the home opener and Russell's "other" favourite club, Derby County FC and their push to get promoted to the Premier League.
