This week's episode comes on the heels of FC Edmonton making a major announcement in that they are leaving the NASL and will discontinue their professional operations. Of course we offer our reactions and attempt to find some silver linings in all this.

And of course, we managed to get Tom Fath on the podcast. He talks about what lead him to make this move and what it will take to see an FC Edmonton resurgance.

This week is a bit of a shorter podcast, as we talk about the NASL and USSF not, uh, talking. And the follow up of that is reports of FC Edmonton not willing to be a part of the NASL picture for 2018, regardless of where  the league stands.

That transitions to FC Edmonton not renewing contracts of four key players, and how many more releases we can expect in the coming weeks.

We also take a bit of time at the end to discuss our future, more notably our plans to focus more on the academy in the coming weeks.

This week we talk about the Soccer Bowl and the Deltas winning. We know there's some bad in the Deltas folding, but we also try to get some good out of it.

Next we talk about the NASL and USSF reportedly working on a settlement that would see NASL continue as a division 2 league. Of course we dive into what it means for FC Edmonton.

This week may seem like a bit of a downer as we talk about the NASL v USSF case with the judge denying the league of an injunction. We break down what it means for the league and some of its teams, especially the fallout for FC Edmonton.

Next we take a look at the Championship semi final matches and how it provided some surprises. We then go on to pick who will win the (possibly last ever) Soccer Bowl. Spoiler: One of us will be right.

On our last part of the podcast, we get a little stats heavy regarding the 2017 season and determine how bad it really was compared to other seasons, notably 2012. It may get a little hard to follow, but look for a blog version in the coming days.

Nathan returns this week! He talks about his time there, more specifically his experience at the Brisbane Roar match. Adam treats him like a guest in asking how it compares to the North American game and how Canada can learn from their growth.

Next we talk about the last match of FC Edmonton's season, and our experience in hosting the viewing party at Arcadia. 

And of course, we talk about NASL vs USSF and how it seems to be leaning from our perspective.
