With Nathan still in Australia, Adam is joined by Tobi to talk about the final home game of the year. While a loss to Miami FC is something we've grown accustomed to, there was a weird feeling at the end of the game and we share our thoughts on it. And with this weeks match against Puerto Rico FC, we talk about the need for donations to help the devastated island try to recover from Hurricane Maria. Please feel free to donate if you haven't to the Carmelo Anthony Puerto Rico Relief Fund here. For context, Carmelo Anthony is the owner of Puerto Rico FC and has strong ties there.

Up next Greyson Knutson of Eddies TV joins Adam to talk about why he got into broadcasting, why he loves soccer, how he joined the FC Edmonton team and much more!

With Nathan away, Adam is left as the sole hose for this episode. But fear not, as there are a few guests to help fill the void. Up first, we have Tobi come on (for what seems like the 40th time) to talk about FC Edmonton's match against the Cosmos and other nutty stuff relating to soccer in North America as a whole.

Next Adam is joined by Jessica and Katie of the For Kicks Podcast. They react to the NWSL Championship and talk about the league as a whole. We also talked about the upcoming friendlies against the US. And most importantly, we make this crossover happen to talk about FC Edmonton's 'Girls in Soccer Night 2' as it is the focus for the final home game of 2017.

FC Edmonton loses (this description isn't copy-pasted, we promise) but we still find some talking points. While the result was lacklustre, we also go into some problems we are starting to have with the game day production. We also manage to find some good in all of it too, like David Doe's professional debut and the banter with Jacksonville's Zach Steinberger on the corner kicks.

Next we look at the USMNT missing the World Cup. We explore how the USSF needs to be careful and deliberate in cleaning house otherwise they risk falling into the slump Canada is still trying to work itself out of. We also look how the CSA in turn can also look at this and learn from it.

Adam & Nathan start this week by discussing the unfortunate terror attacks this weekend. We focus mainly on what happened locally in Edmonton, as well as what happened in Las Vegas on the heels of it. We think it's important to talk about events like these, and believe sports can help heal and move on from these kind of events.

We move on to talking about the loss this past weekend, again to San Francisco. The big things plaguing the team this week was the absence of Ameobi and poor defending on set plays.

In the second half of the podcast we speculate on all the options we believe are available to FC Edmonton for the 2018 season. We've dipped into it a bit before, but this time we dig deeper on the options and how likely they each may be.
