INTVU: Carl Robinson, ex-Whitecaps FC head coach & TFC Canadian Championship winner

About the Episode


With the 2022 Canadian Championship Final pitting Toronto FC against the Vancouver Whitecaps at BC Place, James Sharman and Brendan Dunlop take Jimmy Brennan down memory lane chatting it up with his 2009 Voyageurs Cup winning teammate Carl Robinson. They relive the Miracle in Montreal, the 2009 Can Champ Final where TFC overcame a 4 goal deficit to stun the Montreal Impact 6-1 and lift the first trophy in TFC history.

Tales of playing with Danny Dichio, Dwayne De Rosario and Amado Guevara are told. Robinson talks about his transition in to coaching, his five years as Vancouver Whitecaps manager and working with a 15 year-old Alphonso Davies, being locked down in Australia and away from his family for 18 months during the Covid-19 pandemic, and the similarities between the positions Australian and Canadian players find themselves in. 

As a proud Welshman, Robbo’s excitement over Wales qualifying for the FIFA World Cup for the first time since 1958 is clear, as his admiration for countryman Gareth Bale who looks reinvigorated in his new role at LAFC.
