FTBL Ep. 96 - The Whitecaps' Epic August

It was busy but it overall the Whitecaps had a strong August and, with the Voyageurs Cup in the trophy cabinet, the Blue and White can focus on the stretch run in MLS and the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League. Simon Fudge joins us in-studio to discuss this and more!

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

An epic August ended with a disappointing loss on the road to the Houston Dynamo, but all things considered the Vancouver Whitecaps exceeded expectations in August 2015.

To help break it all down Mark and Jorge are joined in studio by writer Simon Fudge to look back at the month that was and look at the road ahead for the Whitecaps.

In Part 1 (1'-28') the guys review the Houston loss, and preview the Colorado Rapids match coming up on Septemer 9th.

In Part 2 (29'-64') the guys look back at the busiest month in the Whitecaps' history, talk Canadian Men's National Team and delve into the mailbag.
