The big eight oh! There is so much NASL action happening, that we had to leave most of the league analysis for a later podcast, though we briefly touch on some of the rumours surrounding the league and some teams (including one that our sources have told us about, but hasn't been reported elsewhere yet!). We start off looking at the week that was in the NASL, talk about what's been wrong with FCEd recently, and what we would do to change the recent form, before previewing a staggering 12 games this week in the NASL.

This week we review the NASL games that were. Nathan gets a bit ranty about some of the team (looking at you Minnesota and Carolina) for some reason, and we examine how close the post season race really is. Of course we give a massive shout out to Matt Van Okel for catching player of the week, before diving into the upcoming games in the NASL this week.

Ep 78!!! Special thanks to our listeners... You da real MVPs. 
Today... we actually broach the subject of the CanPL... and why we're not thinking its the next biggest thing since sliced bread. Of course we review the NASL week that was, before diving into some of the choices that Colin Miller made for the starts on FCEd this week. Finally we wrap it up as usual with a forecast of the week that will be in the NASL. 

 

Also: F the Cosmos (LETS GO FCEd!!!!)

This week, we try to rush through the NASL scores and preview the week to come in the league before being joined by FC Edmonton GM Jay Ball. Jay requested to come on the show after hearing Ep 76 and wanting to address some of the concerns that were brought up in Steven Sandor's article about the struggles that FC Edmonton has had in gaining attendance. We discuss the differences between FCEd and the "big two" (Oilers and Eskimos) in Edmonton, what the club needs to do for the final games of the 2016 season, and how this change will occur in the following years.

The view from up North: What a week. First, apologies for being so delayed. In this episode, we recap the games that were played in the last bit in the NASL, before moving into some of the drama that has happened in the NASL this week. We attempt to do justice to a very awkward situation with the allegations that an FCEd player is facing, before touching on the case of the missing turf in OKC, Fort Lauderdale's attendance woes, Ottawa's rumour mill (are they leaving? Does a Canadian league exist? ONLY THE SHADOW KNOWS), and wrapping it all up with the much talked about article from Steven Sandor on what it will take for Edmonton to take notice of its strong soccer team.
