Match Preview! Vancouver Whitecaps @ LAFC

Photo by Christopher Morris - Corbis/ Game 2 of their ‘rest of the season’ road trip has the Whitecaps face the talented but presently underachieving LAFC. The Vancouver Whitecaps (5-7-0) have made it two wins in a row and are looking to make it three as they continue on what will prove to be a road trip that’ll last until the end of the season. The next club up? An Los Angeles Football Club (4-5-3) side who, despite their own ups and downs this season, will no doubt benefit from hosting a ‘Caps side on the anywhere road for anybody anyhow.

Report Card: Vancouver Whitecaps at Real Salt Lake

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports The grades are in! The Whitecaps secured back to back victories for the first time in 2020, but how did the players stack up? Saturday night in Utah, the Vancouver Whitecaps began their US road trip with a win, as they secured a 2-1 victory over Real Salt Lake in front of a limited capacity crowd at Rio Tinto. Notably, this was the Whitecaps’ first series of back to back victories in 2020. It was far from a virtuoso performance by the visiting Whitecaps, who were once again aided by an opponent reduced to ten men, but even with that being said, there...

Post Match: Vancouver Whitecaps at Real Salt Lake

Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports Vancouver Brings the Salt to Salt Lake City The Whitecaps began their American dream by heading over to Rio Tinto stadium in order to face Rocky Mountain Cup runners-up Real Salt Lake. A wave of positivity washed over the Whitecaps side coming from an unexpected victory earlier in the week against Canadian opponents Montreal Impact. Surprising no-one, ‘breakout’ hero Fredy Montero got the start up top today, but what not many could have expected was him to line up instead of the Whitecaps’ big offseason DP signing, Lucas Cavallini. Aside from that,...

Yordy Reyna Traded to DC United

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports The Peruvian is on his way out of town in return for 400,000 in GAM. One of the Vancouver Whitecaps’ longest tenured players is finally on his way out of town. Early Saturday morning, the club announced that the Peruvian would be on his way to DC United for 400,000 dollars in general allocation money. “We thank Yordy for his four years with the club,” said Axel Schuster, Whitecaps FC CEO and Sporting Director. “We’re pleased we were able to arrange a deal that is best for both the club as well as Yordy.

Marc dos Santos will have a bit of a conundrum ahead of Saturday: Stick with the hot hand at striker in Fredy Montero, who impressed with two goals a whole lot...

Coffee with the Caps, Friday September 18

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports Good Friday morning Caps fans, hope you all are feeling a bit better about the Caps and a bit better about your weekends. Wednesday’s performance was probably a one-off (unless we get an opposing player to kneecap someone every match) but it also had several promising developments. One of those was the re-emergence of Fredy Montero, who stepped in for a suspended Lucas Cavallini with aplomb. Beyond just bagging two goals and getting Rudy Camacho sent off, Montero brought a different look to the striker’s position. While Montero as a lone striker...

Report Card: Whitecaps vs Montreal Impact

Photo by Rich Lam/ The kind of do-over I can get behind! Though the Canadian Championship final was already out of reach going into Wednesday, the Vancouver Whitecaps hit the road in style, defeating the Montreal Impact 3-1 before venturing into the wild red, white, and blue yonder for the remainder of their 2020 MLS season. As is the case with red cards (see Sunday night’s match for further reading), Wednesday night’s match was defined by one handed out in the 37th minute. Rudy Camacho, after having gone knee-to-knee with Cristian Dajome moments earlier, did not appear too pleased...

Whitecaps Deal Knockout Blow to Impact in Canadian Championship Race

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports The Vancouver Whitecaps romped to a 3-1 victory over the visiting Montreal Impact, in what is likely their last match at BC Place in 2020. Wednesday night at BC Place, the Vancouver Whitecaps exercised revenge on the Montreal Impact in an eventful and unexpected 3-1 victory, eliminating them from Canadian Championship contention as both teams move to the second phase of regular season resumption. Lineups After a challenging outing Sunday night, Marc Dos Santos brought out a wide array of changes in this one. These changes were aided in part by the...

Things Wouldn’t be so Bad if They Weren’t so Bad: Staring Down the Barrel of Another Vancouver Whitecaps Rebuild.

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports Once again it is September and another disappointing Vancouver Whitecaps season is winding down. Aside from the deadly global pandemic it seems as though things have hardly changed. The Whitecaps are still bad and they are bad in a similar (though slightly different) way. It’s easy to just throw your hands up and say things can never improve under this current ownership group. But we have very little control over that so all we can do, should we choose to remain invested in the fortunes of this club, is push for them to improve. With this in mind it...

Report Card: Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Montreal Impact

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports Well ... that was an extremely weird match to grade. Read on to see the good, the bad and the Owusu from Sunday’s 4-2 loss to Montreal. Thomas Hasal: 4.5 It is probably to Hasal’s credit that tonight was the first game where he looked out of his depth. Not sure he had a first-half save or grab that looked totally comfortable and then to concede the penalty right before the break was the cherry on top. Settled down in the second half (even after another boot to the head). Can’t say he really could’ve done much on Montreal’s third and fourth...

Coffee with the Caps, Monday September 14

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports Good Monday morning Caps fans, glad you’re settling into the start of your week with us. I’ve watched a lot of weird Caps matches over the years but Sunday’s game is up there in terms of weirdness. The fact that the best spell for the Caps was arguably after they were reduced to ten men, the Lucas Cavallini bust up after getting sent off, how the match was weirdly open from the first whistle ... its a tough one to wrap your head around. Accordingly its a tough match to make generalizations about, aside from Cavallini maybe wanting to not put guys...

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports Dreams of embarking on a win streak go up in smoke behind the closed doors of BC Place. The smoke has cleared on the fate of our beloved Vancouver Whitecaps vis-a-vis the Canadian Championship, but there is was still a lot to play for a BC Place tonight. The Whitecaps came into their game against the Montreal Impact just 4 points out of the final playoff spot in the West, while Montreal had a clear path to winning the aforementioned Canadian Championship with two wins, and a combined victory margin of 4 goals. These stakes could be felt at the start of...
