Vancouver Whitecaps beat TFC in penalty shootout to win 2022 Canadian Championship

About the Episode


James Sharman, Craig Forrest, Jimmy Brennan and Brendan Dunlop react to the Vancouver Whitecaps’ stunning penalty shootout win over Toronto FC, to lift their second Canadian Championship in club history. Lorenzo Insigne and Federico Bernardeschi did not deliver a Voyageurs Cup victory in just their second game as TFC players, and Craig and Jimmy delve deeper into what that adjustment period must be like for both them and their teammates. England’s domination of Sweden in the 2022 Women’s Euros semi-final, and Germany’s win over France to set up an England v Germany Final at Wembley leads to a larger discussion about the rise in quality of the women’s game.  


The turf pitch at BC Place may have been an issue for TFC’s new European stars, and Jimmy admits that training and playing on turf at BMO Field probably shaved a few years off his playing career. Craig reveals how close he was to coming out of retirement to play for TFC in 2007. Sharms can’t believe the fines that used to exist at Aston Villa before the arrival of Steven Gerrard. Dunny comes up with another clever athletic challenge idea that the crew is unlikely to ever execute. And with producer Dan Wong away on vacation, JC Jeff Cole steps in to read “the mail sack” which of course wouldn’t be complete without a spot on impersonation of Wonger.
