West Coast Soccer Weekly - Episode 8 (Carl Robinson)


After technical glitches (warthogs on the pitch) meant a late call-off for last week's show, we're back on track this week with our pre Valentine Day's show, and love is in the air.

Not the sappy kind that ends up with idiotic men spending too much money on things they could buy the next day for half the price, but a love for everything Vancouver Whitecaps and what the season holds in store for the club and the fans.

Only one guest this week, as we're joined on the phone from Arizona by new Whitecaps Assistant Coach <b>Carl Robinson</b>.

The former Welsh international talks about how he's settling into Vancouver, Monday's feisty match against Seattle, how pre-season is going and which players have impressed him so far.

We look ahead to what lies in store for the season and look back at his move to Toronto, his Welsh international career and the path that took him to coaching in MLS and working with Martin Rennie and Paul Ritchie.

There's even time for some Scotland-Wales pre World Cup qualifiers banter and a look at the renaissance of Welsh football at both club and country level.

As if that's not enough for you, Pierce and myself take a look at the recent goings on in Whitecapland and ponder whether Vancouver will play any actual Canadians this season and whether the CSA even know that Vancouver is in Canada.

We also want to try and get some cool nicknames for the new Caps guys. We have a couple of suggestions and one of them is tied into the gentleman on the right, 50's comic legend Fred Gwynne.

All that and we may have found a couple of jobs for Tommy Soehn. Have a listen and remember it's a light-hearted show, no staid analysis here.
