Wherein Our Heroes recap the magic, drama, and shortcomings of the UEFA Champions League Final. Loris Karius offers up two legendary gaffes; will he recover for next season, or must Liverpool find a new first-choice keeper? Gareth Bale scores one of the greatest goals in tournament history. We are also joined by James Covey of the “Privateers 1882” supporters group in Halifax. He discusses the CPL announcement event, soccer culture in Nova Scotia, and how it feels to be Member #1.

This week, we celebrate the official unveiling of Calgary’s Canadian Premier League club, Cavalry FC.

Wherein Our Heroes question the Argentine Football Association’s package for World Cup journalists – was it a poor prank, Easter egg, or tone-deaf? The FA Cup Final proves too tough to predict. Will Wayne Rooney make a difference in Washington with DC United (on and off the pitch)? Also, MLS club salaries reveal that league parity is on the decline! Lastly, it’s Cavalry not Calvary, people.

Wherein Our Heroes celebrate the rebirth of the music video. We catch up with Calgary Foothills FC captain Dominick Zator on the eve of the 2018 USL PDL regular season. FC Edmonton GM Jay Ball shares his thoughts on the path to professional soccer in Canada, Edmonton’s supporter culture, and Caesars. Canada Soccer officially approves four cities for membership in the Canadian Premier League. Also, does Vancouver’s recent loss to Minnesota United signal that it’s time for change?

Wherein Our Heroes heap sweet praise on the Canadian Premier League’s recently-unveiled logo and manifesto. Toronto FC come within centimetres of winning the CONCACAF Champions League, but now will have to grip their toques tightly to secure an MLS playoff spot. The recent Al Classico first leg in Edmonton proves that the Battle of Alberta is alive and healthy and bodes well for future derby matches. We (again) lament VAR use in MLS and (once more) make it known. Also, the wildest soccer fan in Brazil gets the craziest soccer tattoo imaginable – no more "shirts versus skins” for this guy!
