Whitecaps Watch | Vancouver Sun There’s no question Darren Mattocks’ failure to bury a golden second-half scoring chance cost the Whitecaps a chance for a rare road win in Houston. But should he be criticized for not passing on the play? The 22-year-old Jamaican speedster has taken a lot of heat for not sliding the ball over to a streaking Hurtado, who briefly looked to have a better angle on goal after the Caps broke out on a dangerous counter ...March 25, 2013
Whitecaps Watch | Vancouver Sun There’s already dissension among players over the use of artificial turf for the 2015 Women’s World Cup in Canada. Who didn’t see this one coming? On the same day it was announced BC Place – and its $1.2-million Polytan artificial turf surface – will host the tournament final, U.S. star forward Abby Wambach chimed in with the following tweet: “I think we need to start petitioning FIFA to not let games be played on Field ...March 22, 2013

Whitecaps Watch | Vancouver Sun Don’t take Nigel Reo-Coker’s fiery passion out of context. He insists it’s just part of his winning mentality and not a sign he’s some kind of “angry man.” “I’ve matured as I’ve gotten into my late twenties,” the newest Vancouver Whitecap said in a conference call from Charleston, S.C. “I do still have that fiery passion and that winning mentality. But it’s not something that should be mistaken or taken out of context for being ...February 22, 2013
Whitecaps Watch | Vancouver Sun The arrival of former West Ham and Aston Villa midfielder Nigel Reo-Coker paves the way for the Whitecaps to switch Young-Pyo Lee from right back to his more favoured left back position. Reo-Coker has an impressive background as a midfielder at the top flight of English soccer but he’s a versatile player who can play right back and don’t be surprised if the Caps give him a long look at that spot. The club announcement ...February 21, 2013
Whitecaps Watch | Vancouver Sun You can never have too many quality centre backs. The Whitecaps learned that lesson the hard way two years ago when they had to press rookie Michael Boxall and hardworking journeyman Greg Janicki into action a lot more often than they wanted after captain Jay DeMerit went down with injuries that caused him to miss 13 games. The Caps became a lot deeper at the centre back position this week with the signing of 23-year-old ...February 19, 2013
