Wherein Our Heroes celebrate their sesquicentennial episode by discussing all things True North Strong and Free. The Canadian women end the CONCACAF Gold Cup with an all-too-familiar loss to the USA. Despite this, their efforts will see them into a seventh straight World Cup in 2019. The Canadian men demonstrate their fearlessness and confidence against Dominica, but can Herdman rein in the horses in time for tougher competition next summer? The Canadian Premier League partners with U Sports, opening the pathway for Canadian university players. Also, Adam turns 40 and mistakes a prospective Kijiji buyer for a troll.

Wherein Our Heroes weigh in on the factors that plagued Toronto FC’s underwhelming season. Poor man-management? Injuries? A leaky defence? All eggs in the CONCACAF Champions League basket? The list is long and unfortunate. John Herdman speaks on Sportsnet’s Jeff Blair Show and dispenses a masterclass in leadership. Clanachan’s latest State of the League reveals some juicy nuggets from the Canadian Premier League. Also, San Jose Earthquakes hire Matías Almeyda to steer the ship; is it time to resurrect Haircut of the Week? That mane, though.

Wherein Our Heroes share their thoughts on the first leg of the CPL-era Al Classico and recount the matchday experience. Longtime Foot Soldiers Supporters Group member and special guest, Ryan, talks about his love of the beautiful game, what makes Spruce Meadows a unique experience, and his hopes for growing the game in Canada. Also, in HINHI, we hotly debate the lack of ticket sales for Canada’s upcoming CONCACAF Nations League match against Dominica. Are Canadians too friendly to support a potential drubbing? Are we lacking patriotism? Or is it just a bit too cold in The Six?
