The Footy Talks podcast is back to recap a historic week in Canadian Soccer. The show starts by taking a look at Christine Sinclair’s 185th goal and her incredible legacy in both Canadian and international soccer. James Grossi of MLSSoccer.com is this week’s guest, and he and Mitchell Tierney also discuss Olympic qualifying for the women’s team and how the team can carry the momentum of making history throughout the rest of the tournament.

Then it’s the CanPL segment which includes a discussion about the Ottawa expansion team and what it means for the league and its players. They also look at the complications that the team might face in preparing for a season so quickly.

Finally, they finish up with Toronto FC. Grossi gives his thoughts on the Michael Bradley situation. He also gives more information on new Toronto FC signing Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty and the latest from Toronto FC training.
