For our final podcast of 2017, we sit down with former FC Edmonton fullback and midfielder Allan Zebie. Allan was kind enough to reach out to us soon after he posted his comments on twitter regarding the importance of pro soccer in Edmonton and how vital the Canadian Premier League is to player development. In our conversation, we talk about his background, what brought him to soccer and Edmonton. We also talked about his time as an FC Edmonton player, the Canadian Premier League and his new endeavour, TWP (Train with Pros).
This weeks podcast is part two of our conversation with Jeff Paulus. On this part we focus on talking about the academy and where it sits in relationship to the first team dissolving.
This weeks episode is part one of a two part conversation with FC Edmonton Academy Technical Director Jeff Paulus. Jeff comes back on the show to talk about his time with the first team, as well as a closer look at 2017 and what went wrong. He also talks about the Canadian Premier League and what it would take to get a sustainable club in Edmonton as well as his dream (and realistic) club if he were to manage a CPL club.
