The Eddies win in San Francisco and we obviously react to it. We talk about the travelling support (which mostly happen to be former guests), how lady luck helped, and of course Tomi's Play of the Week calibre goal!

We then moved on to talk about an interview that Red Nation Online posted about former Eddie Adam Straith, which included how he viewed his time in Edmonton, why he moved back to Germany and his views on the coming Canadian Premier League.

We also looked at FCE bringing in former Canadian U-17 couch Sean Fleming to the coaching ranks. He'll be heading up the U-16 level and we discuss how that's a positive thing for FCE's academy moving forward.

We return to our regular format this week and talk at length about FC Edmonton at length. We look back to the last 2 matches and go over the many things FCE is doing right, and the two major things they can't do: score goals and keep a clean sheet. We also look at results around the league, including Jacksonville's decision to go with actual attendance rather than distributed tickets. There's also a new FCE jersey to discuss, sort of. We look at the FC Edmonton sponsored jersey for the Tour of Alberta. And for fun we talk about how we see FC Edmonton becoming a bigger player in the Canadian Premier League from our perspective.

FC Edmonton GM Jay Ball joins us this week. This conversation (at a pub) was fun as Jay shares his experience in helping turn the awareness and attendance up at FC Edmonton matches. He goes into what he learned last season, how they're succeeding this season and what they can do to improve still. Jay also shares some thoughts on th supporters, the teams philanthropic endeavours, and even a little Canadian Premier League chat (sharing his own personal opinions, of course).

In this weeks podcast, we talk about FCE's win in Indy and how that can help change the perspective of this team's playoff chances with the table being wiped clean for the Fall season. We also get into some other aspects of the match, like Watson's return, Corea's brace and the great showings from Fisk and Fordyce.

We also talk about more players returning from injury, Miami falling out of the US Open Cup, San Francisco getting an attendance boost and more!

When we get back to our regularly scheduled programming, we discuss this past weekends match against Indy. We included an in depth look at each players performance as well.

We then address the protest in the stands from ESG. We got statements from the team, the group and paid members who were left out of the loop.

In the second half of the podcast, we talk about the open letter from the San Francisco Delta's owner Brian Helmick. We talk at length about how we believe this is being blown out of proportion and some parts we just don't understand coming from an owener.

We then look ahead to next week and take some likely laughable guesses at the scores.
