Episode 252 - The Marc Dos Santos Show

Earlier this week the Vancouver Whitecaps unveiled Marc dos Santos as their new head coach.

Dos Santos, who's the fourth person to coach the club since they joined MLS in 2011, will immediately start on his preparations for the 2019 season.

This week we discuss the Dos Santos appointment, and Rituro presents a special report in which he chats with Rob Friend, Josh Simpson, James Merriman and Victor Greco at the Pacific FC Got Game Tryouts.

Episode 250 - #FarewellPhonzie and Russell Teibert

This week on the show we're joined by the Vancouver Whitecap Russell Teibert to talk about his season and what's next for the Vancouver Whitecaps.

We also talk about the Whitecaps' final match of the year, which will be the very last in a Whitecaps kit for Alphonso Davies before he officially moves to Bayern Munich.

There's also plenty of other discussion including Kendall Waston wanting out of Vancouver, why Fredy Montero leaving wasn't a big deal and why Jorge figures he has what it takes to become the Whitecaps new manager.

Episode 246 - Robbo is out

On Tuesday this week the Vancouver Whitecaps decided to part ways with head coach Carl Robinson and his entire coaching staff.

Robinson, who's been in charge since 2014, leaves the team with an interesting legacy. Robbo made them a legit MLS club, but too many times the team failed to seize the opportunity and take the step to the next level.

This week Mark & Jorge discuss Robinson's departure, look back at the past 5 years and ponder who might take over as the new head coach and manager.

Episode 245 - Time is running out

The Vancouver Whitecaps' season was dealt a big blow, after losing 2-1 to the Seattle Sounders last weekend. Seattle also won the Cascadia Cup for 2019, and also opened up a gap with the Whitecaps in the playoff race.

In short, last weekend was not very bueno for Whitecaps fans.

This week we talk all about the Seattle match, the implications for the Caps' playoff drive, and look ahead to the big match against FC Dallas this weekend.

Episode 244 - Get ready for Seattle!

MLS is back this week after a short international break, and it signals the start of the final stretch run of the 2018 season.

It's also derby week here in Cascadia, and the Vancouver Whitecaps and Seattle Sounders will meet head on at BC Place this Saturday in one of the biggest games of the year.

This week we discuss the big match with friend of the show Spenser Davies, discuss a possible new head coach for El Tri and much more!

Episode 243 - Whitecaps back in the playoff race

The Whitecaps closed out the summer of 2018 taking maximum points from their back to back matches against the San Jose Earthquakes. The Caps now get a week off before they face rivals Seattle for what is going to be the biggest game of the year so far.

This week Mark & Jorge look back at the 2-1 win over the Quakes last weekend, discuss whether Kei Kamara has been a good signing for the club, and why it seems inevitable that Diego Maradona will show up in the FTBL studio sooner rather than later.
