Nathan is away and rather than listen to Adam talk to himself, we banked a couple of great interviews for you.

First off, we talk to Paul Scanling of the Gorilla Talk podcast. He shares what its been like to try to keep the Silverbacks alive and how he and other fans are reacting to the news if their 'suspension'. We also get some insight on how Silverbacks fans view the incoming MLS team and who they will cheer for next.

Next we talk to FC Edmonton assistant coach and academy technical director Jeff Paulus. He shares a ton of info and insight, including his thoughts on the preseason Scotland trip, the new signings, academy info and so much more.

The NASL schedule has been released and we look at FC Edmonton's portion of it. Of course we share what we love and hate about it, along with any thoughts in between.

We also get in depth about the strong South American influence down in Fort Lauderdale. We speculate what it could mean for them in the league, as well as potentially help the team and leagues brand on a global level.

We also briefly touch on the FC Barcelona academy that will be starting up this year in the Edmonton area and how it may fit into the soccer scene in Alberta.

After losing the original episode 44 because of not saving, we're back to try this again. After Monday's dress rehearsal, we manage to put out a pretty smooth podcast.

We talk about the Nik Ledgerwood OFFICIALLY signing with FCE. We speculate on his role with the team and how the starting 11 looks with him in it. We also then point out the remaining areas of concern on the roster.

The Voyageurs Cup schedule has been released for 2016. We look at the slight change to the schedule, and how we think Edmonton might fare. We also talk about the future of the tournament and how it may grow to include semi-pro and amateur teams in the coming years.

Of course, we finish the second half with some NASL news. The big news is Atlanta suspending operations for 2016. We look at how that affects the league and how it's actually stronger now. We also talk about the recent Fury signings as well. We get a bit side tracked on bashing Jonny Steele while we're at it. Thanks for listening!

Apologies for being a couple days late but we promise it's worth it.

We first start off with some speculation on Nik Ledgerwood and his potential move to FCE. Of course, we include Adam's twitter exchange with Nik that leads to a beer bet.

The second part of the podcast has Matt Van Oekel join us to talk about his time with Minnesota, coming to FCE and what we can expect from him in 2016.

We end the pod with some news on Canadians in the NASL as well as even more talk on the much speculated Canadian League.
