What have Aketxe, van der Wiel and Auro brought to the Reds so far?

MLS: Concacaf Champions League-Colorado Rapids at Toronto FC Dan Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

On this week’s edition of the Footy Talks podcast, former Waking the Red overlord Oliver Platt is back! Oli talks with Mitchell Tierney about all things Toronto FC including tomorrow’s game against Real Salt Lake at BMO Field.

Why haven’t the Reds been using their depth so far this season? Should we be concerned with the lack of goals from the first two matches? Also a look at Auro, Ager Aketxe and Greg van der Wiel and what they have brought to the table so far.

Then it’s a look ahead to the CONCACAF Champions League where, after beating one titan in Tigres, the Reds will face another in Club America. What lessons can Toronto FC carry over to help them pull off yet another big win in the competition?

The lads then look back at the international break that was, and quickly review Canada’s 1-0 victory over New Zealand. What did we learn from John Herdman’s first camp in charge? Plus talk about Jonathan Osorio and 18-year-old phenom Liam Millar.

Also in this week’s show is talk about which teams are favourites for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, a quick look ahead at UEFA Champions League quarterfinals and the bizarre way that Carlos Tevez hurt himself this week.
