A double shot of interview goodness today, as we speak to L.A. soccer writer Nick Green about Landon Donovan, David Beckham and the Galaxy’s chances this season, as well as Vancouver Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi, who talks about his club’s academy system, the importance of player development and how the team’s current setup will be affected once the squad enters MLS in 2011.

Also, we talk about the significance of Canada’s upcoming friendly against Argentina, the significance of Paul Dickov being on trial with Toronto FC and the significance of anonymous players making worrisome statements about MLS labour negotiations. To balance out all that significance, we also have The Full 90 and Rollins making jokes about curling.
