On this episode, we dive deep into FC Edmonton's loss to San Francisco. The starting lineup looked...interesting but ultimately was not as good as the previous week in Indy. Why the changes? We attempt to examine why but only get even more confused (which doesn't seem to take much).

Next, we talk about a recent blog Nathan posted, "Are Supporter Groups Killing Supporter Culture in Edmonton?" We both chime in on what we thing is hurting the growth, and examine a very well done blog in response written by a newer FC Edmonton fan.

And finally, we tease LCRV merch. Would you be into that? Any ideas for designs? Please feel free to let us know what you think!

There's a lot to cover this week! We start by talking about FCE's big win against Indy this past weekend. There was a few lineup changes that we discuss that helped contribute to the result.

Next we move on to discuss Tom Fath admitting to sitting in on Canadian Premier League meetings. We speculate if this means the NASL meetings last week didn't go well. And following that news, we learn that the NASL plans to sue the USSF in a Hail Mary move to save the league. There's also a few interesting notes that happen to get leaked as well.

After this past Sunday's match, we return to being an FC Edmonton supporter therapy session. We break down the frustrating loss and make a few suggestions on how the starting eleven should line up this coming week against, well, the Indy Eleven.

We then proceed to talk about NASL losing it's division sanctioning and the fall out this past week in statements from teams and reaction from the fans.

It also appears that the Delta's front office attempted to do damage control by creating another blog that ended up again just asking fans to do the teams marketing. We explain how wrong this is and how it surely will set up failure for this team.

Our podcast ends on talking about the Benfica vs Rangers friendly match in Hamilton this October and how this can affect CPL hype in the city. This conversation evolved into a discussion about CPL attendance and what's reasonable to expect.

On this episode, we cover the breaking news of NASL losing it's division 2 sanctioning by the USSF. We try to paint a broad picture about what it means for clubs looking to move to MLS (Indy, North Carolina) and the stronger clubs wanting to compete with MLS (Miami). Of course, we finish our thoughts off on this topic by considering what this means for FC Edmonton.

We then look at this past weeks matches, including FCE's rare result in North Carolina. Of course we analyze the table to death and look ahead to this Sunday's match against that same NCFC side (which has never won at Clarke yet)

The podcast ends with our thoughts on the latest signings from the academy, and how they fit into the teams future, as early as next season even.
