Another MLS season has come to pass and another Vancouver Whitecaps rival has lifted the MLS Cup. Sigh. One day people, one day... We were down in Seattle for Sunday's final as the Sounders took on TFC. We chat about the match and the main talking points coming out of it and how Seattle fared as a host city. Plus we bring you excerpts from Don Garber's State of the League address and chat about some of the main things covered in it, especially those with a Canadian bent. Turning our attention to the Canadian national team, we eagerly look forward to the big game with the US in Florida on Friday and hear some thoughts from head coach John Herdman. Plus we chat with 'Caps centre back Derek Cornelius about the historic 2-0 win over them in Toronto last month, the disrespect shown to the Canadian team after it from US pundits and fans, and about what's he's expecting in part two. We also look at an eventful week in Canadian club soccer as Ottawa Fury cease operations and CPL teams start to release players. We sit down for an in-depth chat with Pacific FC defender Marcel de Jong about the CPL season past, his move from the 'Caps, injuries, and looking ahead to the future. Plus does Ben Fisk fancy a chocolate digestive?, Kevin Phoenix features in Wavelength, Goldie Lookin' Chain continue their residency as our artists of the month for November, and there's BC Soccerweb headlines.
