FTBL Podcast Ep. 26: Start Manneh?

Once again the young Gambian proved he can be a game changer, but is he ready to be a regular starter for the Whitecaps?


Episode 26 of From the Backline kicks off with the lads proudly welcoming back their "sponsor" for a second straight week (and yes, it will remain mildly amusing at least until this weekend) before following up on the 25th anniversary of the 1989 Hillsborough stadium disaster and the recent release of the ESPN 30 for 30 special detailing the tragedy.

Of course there is plenty of Vancouver Whitecaps to talk about, specifically the last minute heroics from wunderkind Kekuta Manneh that saved a point for the Caps against the LA Galaxy last Saturday afternoon.  After an in-depth discussion of the two-game series against the four-time MLS Cup champions, Jorge and Mark pose the question: Is it time for Manneh to be a regular starter on Carl Robinson's team?

All this and more in this week's podcast!
