On this weeks special episode, we look back at some moments over the previous 199 episodes that were special to us. We also look at FC Edmonton's current form and how they are getting the luck bounces that they missed earlier in the season. We also look ahead to the week in the Voyageurs Cup where we will see CPL clubs get a real test against some outside competition. And we also look ahead to the coming match between FC Edmonton and York 9.

On this weeks episode, we talk about the FC Edmonton beating York 9 but how that wasn't enough to advance in the Voyageurs Cup. We also talk about FC Edmonton's loss to Cavalry FC in the Al Classico and how disappointing the result was despite seeing some of the best soccer from FCE.

Adam is then joined by Eric of the Nine Stripes podcast to talk about York 9's play this season, a recap of the Voyageurs Cup matches and look ahead to the upcoming league match between the two clubs. And of course, we get an update on some former Eddies and how Eric rates them.

On this weeks episode, we take the opportunity of the break in CPL action to take a more level headed approach on what happened last week and look ahead to this weeks Voyageurs Cup matchups. Further on this note, we ask some key questions about FC Edmonton on the return leg against York 9. Can they keep a clean sheet? Can they score 2 goals? If they win but don't advance, does it help momentum for their play in the league?

For the first time ever, we record a podcast coming off three losses in a week. And coming off those three losses, we try our best to find some positives. We also are quite critical in the results and how the team performed as a whole for 90 minutes in each game. We also try to determine what this club needs to do to already turn this season around.

On this weeks episode, we look at the first impression York 9 had at home, how they messed up in reacting to the weather delay and how their home opener ranks against the rest of the league.

We then take a look at the CPL schedule and how it conflicts with major CanWNT and CanMNT matches. We also take a look at the overall insistence on weekend afternoon matches, as opposed to evening matches that could likely draw a higher attendance.

And finally, we take a look at the upcoming week for FC Edmonton, which features two massive matches that can have a big impact on the Spring season and CONCACAF League qualification.
