The Third Sub Episode 71: Whitecaps make moves, CF Montreal continue to build, and some other MLS chatter

In Episode 71 of the Third Sub Podcast, Alexandre Gangue-Ruzic and Samuel Rowan dive into the latest Vancouver Whitecaps and MLS news from this past week, before finishing off with some more MLS kit chatter.

Welcome back to another episode of the Third Sub Podcast!

In this episode, Alex and Sam are back, as usual, this time to chat all things Vancouver Whitecaps and MLS.

Up first, they catch up on the Whitecaps news of the week, as they look at some of the confirmed transactions that have happened in the past week.

First, they look at a confirmed departure, as David Milinkovic’s contract was officially terminated this week, before looking at some of the names that signed new deals in the past week, as Andy Rose officially re-signed (and became an assistant coach for the ‘Caps U19 team!), while ‘Caps Super Draft pick David Egbo and longtime USL veteran Evan Newton signed deals to join the team.

After that, they look at how the CBA negotiations have progressed over the last week, giving some thoughts on the multiple extensions of the negotiating deadline by MLS, breaking down what sort of message this whole process has delivered.

To round off the episode, they then tip their hat to Club de Foot Montreal and the incredible work they’ve put in behind the scenes to build a sneaky-good team, before devolving into some more MLS kit discussion and speculation.

  1. I’m not sure why there is any confusion over why Milinkovic is leaving. When it was announced that he was probably leaving Axel (or maybe it was MDS) said that Milinkovic wanted to play in every game. Now that Caicedo has been signed it make perfect sense, you don’t sign a DP and then bench him so Milinkovic can play every game. I am pleased that the Whitecaps were up front with him about the fact he was going to have to share his playing time with Caicedo and it looks like Milinkovic was equally up front about not wanting to play only 50% of the time.

    As for the statement today (Milinkovic wants to be back in Europe because of his family) I can see how that would be equally true. When Milinkovic first got here he said that he was happy to have his first child in Canada. But I know many people that though have their first child would be easy, then when the baby arrives they realize that they would like their extended family to participate in raising the baby. All of the baby’s grandparents and aunts and uncles are back in Europe. It certainly looks better than a player saying “I was to be guaranteed that I will play every game next season”.

  2. Oops! The last sentence should have read: It certainly looks better than a player saying “I want to be guaranteed that I will play every game next season”.
