Coffee with the Caps, Friday March 5

Happy Friday Caps fans, hope you all are feeling some spring vibes now that we are firmly in March. This week was a vital one for Vancouver, with the biggest news drop of the year ahead of the 2021 season. It really is hard to see how the team will top this when they sign a DP number 10. I am talking, of course, about the kit reveal.

Training Notes: Montero Negotiations, National Team Duty & Feeding the Bair

Training Notes: Montero Negotiations, National Team Duty & Feeding the Bair

Bob Frid/Vancouver Whitecaps FC The first week of the preseason is almost in the books. Catch up with the latest from camp as we hear from Marc Dos Santos, Lucas Cavallini and Theo Bair. In just 44 days, the 2021 MLS season will be underway. Time moves quickly as a season approaches, and quietly, the Vancouver Whitecaps are only a day away from completing their first week of training camp. The secluded nature of the camp hasn’t provided too many storylines worth focusing on, so naturally, attentions have turned to the club’s movements away from the pitch. Last...

What Zero Creativity Does to MF

What Zero Creativity Does to MF

It is the official first day of pre-season for the Vancouver Whitecaps. This means it is the first day you are allowed to be concerned about their roster construction. Not panicked, mind you, plenty of high impact players have been signed in MLS after their team started training camp. However this is the first point when not having all of the pieces together yet might actually have a negative impact on the season. So, let’s have a look at where things stand. First a quick review of last season. The Whitecaps came out in pre-season and the two pre-covid regular season games...

Vancouver Whitecaps Prospect Report (February 2021)

Vancouver Whitecaps Prospect Report (February 2021)

Photo by Christopher Morris - Corbis/Corbis via The Covid-19 pandemic put this series on hold last season but now there are three players the Whitecaps own the rights to playing elsewhere and I figure that’s just enough to justify bringing it back. So here’s how the Vancouver Whitecaps’ young guns did in February. Simon Colyn: Colyn was loaned to Spal F.C of Serie B last season. Unfortunately for Colyn the Primavera (Italy’s top level of youth football) was shut down due to the pandemic a week after he arrived. Since the Primavera’s return Colyn has made 5...

Offseason Notebook: Why Bruno Gaspar is a Curious Target for VWFC + The Latest Kit Rumors

Offseason Notebook: Why Bruno Gaspar is a Curious Target for VWFC + The Latest Kit Rumors

Photo by Stephanie Meek - CameraSport via Welcome back to the offseason notebook everyone! Are You Sure, Axel? As you’ve likely heard, the Vancouver Whitecaps are in hot pursuit of yet another player from the Portuguese League, this time a right back in 27-year old Bruno Gaspar from Sporting CP. With the reported fee on a loan-to-buy deal being just under two million dollars, the Whitecaps are looking at yet another decent sized investment for a player that isn’t necessarily at a position of need, and frankly, that has me concerned. While Gaspar’s profile is...

A Farewell to TSN 1040

A Farewell to TSN 1040

Bob Frid-USA TODAY Sports TSN 1040 is no more. Not only is this a sad day for the market, but it could have some pretty serious ramifications for the Vancouver Whitecaps. When I saw the news, I was stunned. Even now, I’m not quite sure I can believe it, it seems like a bad dream, and it hurts. TSN 1040 (or TEAM 1040 for the og’s) was a staple of the Vancouver sports media business for the last 20 years. They truly have shaped the sports culture in this city and remain one of the greatest reasons I pursued opportunities in sports media, such as covering the...
