Footy Talks: The CanPL opener awaits

Plus an inside look at the Jozy Altidore situation

Brandon Taylor - Canada Soccer

On Saturday all eyes in the Canadian soccer community will turn to Hamilton. After years of waiting, the inaugural Canadian Premier League game will kick off between York 9 and Forge FC.

It’s tough to know what to expect from this inaugural CanPL season, but the fact that it is here at all is a cause for excitement and celebration.

Michael Leach of 680 News joins the Footy Talks Podcast to preview the 2019 season. He and Mitchell Tierney discuss which players they will be keeping an eye on, which youngster could have a breakout year, and which matchups they are looking forward to most.

Leach then fills the show in on the behind the scenes from Jozy Altidore’s surprising outburst after Toronto FC’s 4-3 win over Minnesota United. The guys also talk about Toronto FC’s continued defensive issues, and the door opening for Jordan Hamilton with Altidore out injured.
