Report Card: Whitecaps Dismal Against Toronto FC

Yeah, Brek Shea is on the list It’s early in the season, but man oh man, does this Whitecaps squad ever look like they are in trouble.

Spoiler alert: This is not a happy report card. Brek Shea: F An easy early pick for most disappointing Whitecap. After his embarrassing flop versus The Tigres, I’m sure many fans were wondering how the 27 year old would top himself this time out....

VANCOUVER—Brek Shea stood on the pitch, shooting daggers at referee Ismail Elfath. The Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder had just forced Toronto FC defender Nick Hagglund to the ground, drawing a yellow card in the 70th minute of Saturday’s contest at BC Place. But it was what Shea did next that proved costly for his team. The ponytailed Texan, evidently unhappy with Elfath’s decision, unleashed a barrage of words unfit for print. He promptly earned a second yellow for dissent, and for their second consecutive Major League Soccer match, the Whitecaps went down to 10 men. Vancouver went on...

Vancouver has injury and suspension issues at the moment, but the club has made smart work of the transfer market to give itself options for its upcoming CCL match against RBNY.

Despite injuries depriving the team of Christian Bolanos, Nicolas Mezquida, and newly-signed Yordy Reyna, and the absence of star-signing Fredy Montero, the Caps got in and out of Red Bull Arena with a draw and a...
