Caps worn down, fall late to Orlando City SC

Caps worn down, fall late to Orlando City SC

Don’t get too used to that winning feeling folks A late deflected goal was the difference Saturday in Orlando, as the home Orlando City side punished a lackluster Whitecaps team 1-0 in central Florida. The Caps could not parlay their first win of the season Wednesday into momentum on Saturday, creating only a few decent chances and they were eventually put to the sword by a more energetic Orlando City team. Marc dos Santos went for a tactical change, opting to go with three centerbacks as Derek Cornelius joined the normal cornerback pairing. Ali Adnan and former OCSC man Scott Sutter...

Week 8b Match Preview! Whitecaps @ Orlando City SC

Two games in four days? My legs are tired just thinking about it... As amazing as it was to see the Vancouver Whitecaps (1-4-2) secure their first win of the season, against league leading LAFC no less, the Blue & White had to save the celebrating for the airport bar, as they’re now tasked with their longest trip of the season: an away match to Orlando City SC (2-3-2).

Vancouver Whitecaps Release Unimpressive Statement on Allegations of Inappropriate Behaviour

Vancouver Whitecaps Release Unimpressive Statement on Allegations of Inappropriate Behaviour

Before we begin I want to give a huge shoutout to @AmanLoodu on twitter for the meme that’s the lead art for this article. He’s one of the funniest and most on point people on Whitecaps twitter and right now he only has 69 (nice) followers so be sure to give him a follow. This particular meme, to me, sums up the Vancouver Whitecaps’ halfhearted attempt to fend off allegations from over a dozen former Whitecaps Women players of sexual harassment and bullying that was never adequately dealt with. The statement, it seems, was clearly made as a reaction to fan resentment over the issue...

Coffee with the Caps, Friday April 19

Coffee with the Caps, Friday April 19

Yes I’m still savoring that win Good Friday morning everybody. As a massive Caps and Tottenham Hotspur fan, Wednesday was about as perfect of a soccer day as you could ask for and I’m unabashedly still reveling in it. Sure, LAFC didn’t roll out a first choice lineup and yes the Caps got outpossessed 60-40 and there are certainly still some things to iron out. But don’t forget, Diego Rossi and Carlos Vela have helped that team walk most of its early games (against some strong competition, no less) and Erik Godoy and Donneil Henry really helped control them Wednesday. Say what you...

Report Card: Whitecaps vs. LAFC

Report Card: Whitecaps vs. LAFC

Hot damn, we got a win! It’s now been a full day (and then some) since the Vancouver Whitecaps netted their first win of the season against Los Angeles FC, and I’m damn well done over-analyzing three points that really could not have come too soon. That said, the cohesion and decision making of the Whitecaps players on the pitch was very encouraging. The high pressure supplanted the LAFC attack and kept its backline on its heels for the first 45, while the second half saw some dogged defensive work from Vancouver. It was certainly a great team effort, but how about the individual...

From the Locker Room - Vancouver Whitecaps v. LAFC

A first win for the Whitecaps under Marc Dos Santos, and another clean sheet We got reaction from Marc Dos Santos, Doneil Henry and In-Beom Hwang after the match. Wednesday night, heading into the match I didn’t give the Whitecaps much chance of pulling out a result. That’s the simple way of putting it. The way things have happened this season, it just felt like it was going to be another difficult evening at BC Place. While it was difficult, the end result was actually something that several media members were discussing after the match – that this result was the embodiment of MLS...

Post Match: A Win!

Post Match: A Win!

Do you believe in miracles? The Whitecaps secure their first win of the season at home against the top team in MLS. The Vancouver Whitecaps defeated LAFC Wednesday night at BC Place by a score of 1-0, giving the home side their first victory of the MLS season, while Marc dos Santos also logged his first victory as Whitecaps Manager. After an admittedly poor match at Chicago last Friday night, dos Santos decided to mix things up at training this week, which led to Yordy Reyna starting out of position at striker, with PC also in an advanced position on the wing. Jake Nerwinski also re-gained...

Know the Enemy - Los Angeles FC

LAFC come to BC Place for a Wednesday night tilt. We scout the undefeated LAFC and get some inside information on how the club is doing so far this season. The MLS leading Los Angeles FC come to Vancouver Wednesday night to face Vancouver Whitecaps. While the Whitecaps have had a miserable start to their season, still winless and only earning two points from their first six games, LAFC have had the exact opposite start. One of only three undefeated teams so far this season (Seattle and surprising Houston the other two), LAFC have dominated with 21 goals for and only 5 against. They have...

Match Preview: Vancouver Whitecaps vs LAFC

The Netflix original series Black Mirror is a collection of self contained stories which show a glimpse of a dark potential future. LAFC are sort of the reverse of that for the Vancouver Whitecaps. They show what could be, if only things were just a little different. They are a mixture of young players and high priced difference makers. They play lovely football in a soccer specific stadium that is generally full. My dream of what the Vancouver Whitecaps would look like in an ideal world looks an awful lot like LAFC. But at the moment LAFC are top of the Western conference while the...

Notes & Quotes From The Training Ground (April 15th)

The Vancouver Whitecaps were back at work Monday morning at UBC in advance of a Wednesday night clash with undefeated LAFC at BC Place. While there was some obvious frustration with another VAR call which went against the Caps on Friday night in the Windy City, the mood was generally positive at training, with an energetic and competitive session. Doneil Henry, the perpetrator of the alleged handball, explained his frustration with the VAR decision in his post-training interview. “It’s difficult to know how to defend anymore” said Henry, who also added that he felt VAR at times...

Guess the Starting XI & Final Score 2019 (MLS Match #7 - LAFC)

Welcome to another season of our Vancouver Whitecaps contest “Guess the Starting XI and Final Score”. As is tradition, thanks to former regular Spencer for starting this several years ago. It has grown into a great contest and I am appreciative of him for the original idea. Like last season, we will break the contest up into the three ‘seasons’: first half, second half, and non-MLS. We will continue to have fun monthly ‘bonus’ prediction categories, with some being based on whatever it topical at the time. Last season we had things like “Robbo post-match quotes”, “yellow...

Report Card Chicago Fire v Vancouver Whitecaps

We grade the individual performances of the Vancouver Whitecaps in their 1-1 draw in Chicago Friday night. The Vancouver Whitecaps acquired their second point of the season with a 1-1 draw away to Chicago Fire. While the game ended in a draw, fans probably couldn’t help but feel fortunate and unfortunate at the same time. Gifted the first goal of the game, they only ended with a draw thanks to another questionable video assistant replay decision. Largely outplayed for the majority of the match there were some positive individual performances in the match. Looking at the individual...

Match Report – Chicago Fire v. Vancouver Whitecaps

Seriously. The ‘Caps got backhanded by the VAR - again - and drew 1-1 at Toyota Park. Friday evening’s 5:30PM PDT kick-off was always going to present a difficult, chilly evening of soccer. Conditions at kick-off saw winds around the 27KPH mark and noted to be as high as 40 KPH hindering both teams. Marc Dos Santos shook up his lineup following the home loss to LA Galaxy, sticking with In-beom Hwang on the left flank while bringing Scott Sutter, Fredy Montero and Yordy Reyna into the starting lineup. With both the Vancouver Whitecaps and Chicago Fire coming into the match looking for...

6th time’s the charm! Well here we go again. Watching the Vancouver Whitecaps (0-1-4) feels almost tiring these days, even for a noted optimist such as myself. But they’re up against the only slightly less uninspiring Chicago Fire (1-2-2) so maybe this is their week! Match information Where: idk, somewhere in Chicago When: 7:00 PM PT TV: TSN 1/3/4 Chicago Fire: In many was the Fire are a very similar team to the Whitecaps. They keep about the same amount of possession, have about the same pass accuracy, and have about the same number of shots per game. Both teams have conceded 9 goals...
