FTBL Podcast Ep. 49: "That" Match in PDX

New, 6 comments

With five matches (yikes!) left in the 2014 MLS season, last Saturday's loss leaves the Whitecaps' season hanging by a thread. We go back (sorry) and look at what went wrong for the Caps.

Help! We've fallen and we can't get up (maybe)! Vancouver's loss at Portland last weekend puts the 2014 playoff hopes in jeopardy.

Episode 49 hits the ground running when Mark is forced to wake Rituro up from his Blue & White fantasy land to remind him that the Vancouver Whitecaps 3 - 0 defeat to the Portland Timbers really did happen and our season is now hanging by a thread.

In Part 1 the guys do a thorough (sorry) post mortem of the huge derby loss to the Timbers and look ahead to the latest "must-win" game of the season when Real Salt Lake rolls into Vancouver on Saturday.

Part 2 includes that latest MLS news round-up and an update that proves that "Toronna is gonna Toronna", but starting in 2015 Toronto FC will "Toronna" at a BMO Field that is set to undergo a stunning renovation over the next year and a half.

The guys close the show with a story that features Whitecaps alumnus, Kenny Miller.
