On this weeks episode, it starts to feel like a bit of deja vu. FC Edmonton plays well but aren't quite good enough to get a result against Ottawa. Forge also made another big signing with Jordan Hamilton. And Valour are making a strong case to be a playoff team.

We also discuss the 2022 schedule that was released, and how it may be the best home schedule FC Edmonton has ever had.
