This weeks episode comes on a bit of a slower week, but that won't stop us from continuing to speculate. Macron has been the long rumoured kit supplier for the league and this past week we've gotten the strongest hints that prove it to be true. We look at the CPL naming them as official outfitter for the Open Trials, the Macron branded jerseys for the York 9 celebrity match, CPL executives in Italy and even what the chances are we see the Cavalry and FC Edmonton prospects wearing Macron gear. And on that note, we look ahead to this weekends prospects match up in (or should we say, near) C*lgary.

We take this weeks episode to focus on the River Valley Vanguard, the newest Edmonton supporters group that launched this past weekend. We look at the launch event, the name, crest and even those new scarves that sold out almost immediately. We also dive into what this group means to both of us and the long journey that brought the supporters to unite and create the strongest supporter identity the city has ever seen.

Otherwise Podcast

Sep 11, 2018

We start this weeks episode expanding on the topic of the Ottawa Fury and their statement made shortly after our recording where made an official statement saying they will remain in the USL for 2019. We try to cut through the narrative that the Fury tried to dictate in the past week and offer what we think really went on.

Next we look at what was said in the commissioners State of the League. Included were comments on the Fury, expansion, a league kit deal, roster rules and media rights. We speculate on what some of those announcements will end up being as well.

And finally, we talk about a positive situation that's more local, and that's Al Classico 2 is officially a go! We look at the shift in tone in advertising, moving away from using the Foothils and FCE Academy and using Cavalry & FCE Prospects.

Back to School Again

Sep 5, 2018

This weeks episode covers a few different topics. First we look at the FC Edmonton Academy winning provincials in the ASA Premier division and how that paints a bright future for the first team. 

Next we look into the rumblings of Al Classico 2 happening this fall, and the location of the Calgary leg. It appears it will be at Spruce Meadows so it will be interesting to see it used as a soccer facility before the CPL kicks off.

And sticking in Alberta, we take an opportunity to look at the new Foot Soldiers logo. We agree it's a nice clean look, but we do take the opportunity to tease them about the star they put atop the new crest, something typically reserved for teams winning.

Finally we look at the Ottawa Fury situation. We look into reports of out of Ottawa (and insider info provided to us) saying the Fury won't be team number eight for the inaugural CPL season. We discuss why the Fury are no longer at the CPL owners table and what they are wanting out of the league.
