Wherein Our Heroes are joined by Adam and Nathan from Loyal Company of the River Valley, an Edmonton-based soccer podcast. We discuss the upcoming two-legged derby between FC Edmonton and our own Calgary Foothills FC, the impending launch of the Canadian Premier League, and the overall state of soccer in Alberta’s two largest cities. And remember Edmontonians, there’s more than one way to skin a rabbit!
Wherein Our Heroes examine how Manchester City came to dominate the Premier League in 2017/18. It appears to be De Bruyne versus Salah in the quest to be PFA Player of the Year. Mario Balotelli looks set to land at DC United in the summer – would his presence be more beneficial on or off the field? Also, we look ahead to the CONCACAF Champions League Final.
We are joined this week by Tommy Wheeldon Jr., head coach of Calgary Foothills FC. Tommy shares his thoughts on coaching and player development, recounts his club’s recent pre-season trip to England, and looks forward to the coming PDL season.
Wherein Our Heroes revel in Zlatan’s MLS debut. Biggleswade Town hold a shooting competition after their trio of goalkeepers succumb to injury (or go AWOL). Olympiakos players receive fines and a “holiday” for the rest of the season for their poor performances. The latest attempt at a Ronaldo bust swings the pendulum too far to the Adonis side of things. Also, importantly, Canadian Soccer Business is announced, and we believe this can only mean great things.
