FTBL Ep. 82 - Are the Whitecaps in a Slump?

How good is this Whitecaps team actually? Have they even played well at all in 2015? How can they turn it around? Should Morales be dropped of his #10 spot? We attempt to answer all of these questions.

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

Have you ever felt really proud of a project you just finished only to find out that your efforts have been overshadowed by something else?  Hopefully by the time you're listening to Episode 82 you're sick and tired of the news of the FIFA arrests and corruption scandal, and you want to get some news on our beloved Vancouver Whitecaps.

In Part 1 (1'-28') Mark and Jorge go back and dissect the disappointing road loss at the hand of the Colorado Rapids before talking about the Whitecaps form over the past several weeks.  Before heading into the second part of the show the guys talk about the upcoming five match road trip that the Whitecaps are going to embark upon and how important it will be to the team's 2015 campaign.

In Part 2 (29'-60') the guys open up the mail bag and talk about formations and tactics, the airspeed of an unladen Swallow, and tackle the big question: why has there been so little promotion for the upcoming FIFA Women's World Cup?
