From The Backline - Whitecaps/MLS/Soccer Podcast


Feb 20, 2019

This week Jorge and Mark recap the latest action and signings for the Vancouver Whitecaps, and look ahead to the final preseason matches against Tijuana and LAFC.

In the second half of the show Mark is joined by author Christopher Sweeney to discuss his new book titled Mad Dog Gravesen: the Last of the Modern Footballing Mavericks.

Footballer Thomas Gravesen rose to the pinnacle of football after a humble start in a small Danish town. By the time he retired early at the age of 32 Gravesen had nearly 70 caps for Denmark, played in the UEFA Champions League and blew up the Hamburg training pitch with dynamite.

Chris tells us all about the life and times of Gravesen: the good, the bad, and the ugly, and why football is better with characters like Thomas.
