Coffee with the Caps, Friday December 3

Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports Good Friday morning Caps fans, just one more work day and we will be in the midst of the weekend — and after this week, I’m pretty darn fired up about that.

At least that’s what I’m feeling about it, maybe that says more about me than anything else. But I don’t think that feeling is all that unreasonable. At the root of the uneasiness is that, despite going on an unprecedented run of form with a lovable head coach, there are all kinds of red flags that the Whitecaps success isn’t sustainable. After 10 games Vanni Sartini was on a pace, xG wise, to have the 3rd best Whitecaps season in their MLS history. This...
