What happens when Vancouver Whitecaps best player turns 18?

What happens when Vancouver Whitecaps best player turns 18?

Having a great 2018 thus far, the question now is what happens to Alphonso Davies in November when he turns 18 and can be transferred internationally? Alphonso Davies has had a meteoric rise in his two years as a Vancouver Whitecaps player. At 15 years and three months, he became the youngest player signed to United Soccer League. Three months later, he became the youngest to score in USL. On July 15th, 2016, he became the third youngest to sign an MLS contract; and 2nd youngest to play (and start). Following his impressive 2016 campaign, he was ranked as one of the world’s 60 best...

Post-Match: Davies Mania!

Post-Match: Davies Mania!

Alphonso Davies simply could not be stopped as the Whitecaps romped to a 5-2 home victory. Oh how quickly four draws turns into unbeaten in six. After gaining form last Friday against a last place Colorado Rapids squad, The Vancouver Whitecaps put on a memorable second half-performance yesterday as what could have been a disappointing 1-1 draw quickly turned into a 5-2 trouncing over Orlando City. After a fairly sleepy first 35 minutes, marked only by a quality Brian Rowe stop on Canadian international Will Johnson, the brilliance of Alphonso Davies began. Too smooth, @WhitecapsFC....

The 86Forever World Cup Prediction - (Part 1)

The 86Forever World Cup Prediction - (Part 1)

What a lovely Vancouver Sunday to get involved in our World Cup Prediction Tournament. It’s a lovely weekend on the back of a win, isn’t it? 3 points in the bag, back into the playoff places and well, a win for the Vancouver Whitecaps, it really helps make for an enjoyable weekend. A weekend that allows you to focus on other teams - like Toronto FC and their continued struggles as they mustered a point at home against Columbus Crew. On the international stage, there was a friendly tune-up match for the World Cup where Austria managed to knock off one of their age old rivals in...

Report Card: Whitecaps vs. Colorado Rapids

Report Card: Whitecaps vs. Colorado Rapids

Hey we can do something besides a 2-2 draw! After a seemingly endless stream of draws, Vancouver got back to their winning ways on Friday, easing by a hapless Colorado Rapids side 2-1 in Commerce City. Despite a slow start, the Caps attack seems to be humming along at just the right time. But how did those players (and everyone else) fair in our report card? Read on to find out. Brian Rowe: 6.5 There was not much to be done on Castillo’s golazo, perfectly placed as it was in the upper 90. Rowe did well to make sure the Rapids didn’t double their tally, especially early in the match....

Whitecaps Break Draw Streak and Extend Rapids Loss Streak in 2-1 Victory

Whitecaps Break Draw Streak and Extend Rapids Loss Streak in 2-1 Victory

The Vancouver Whitecaps snapped their four-game draw streak, with a well-earned 2-1 victory over Colorado Rapids. The Vancouver Whitecaps traveled to Colorado to take on the Rapids in another Friday night match (there sure have been a LOT of them this season!). Coming into the match, the Whitecaps had drawn their previous four matches while the Colorado Rapids had lost their previous six matches. Carl Robinson made six changes from last weekend’s 3-3 draw at home to the New England Revolution, including the entire back line. In were Jake Nerwinski, Jose Aja, Brek Shea, and Doneil Henry,...

Match Preview (Part 2): Vancouver Whitecaps @ Colorado Rapids

A special double dose of the match preview. Who will prevail at mile high? While the Vancouver Whitecaps might not be terribly pleased with their current run of form, registering four straight draws, those struggles pale in comparison to the Rapids’ current losing skid. The Colorado side has lost six consecutive matches in league play after losing 3-2 at home against the Portland Timbers last weekend. Something will have to give in Commerce City on Friday night as both sides look to find winning form for the first time in awhile. Somehow, the Whitecaps still find themselves sitting at...

Match Preview – Whitecaps FC vs Colorado Rapids

Game time 6:00pm PST The Vancouver Whitecaps (4-5-5) visit the Mile-High City on Friday to face the lowly Colorado Rapids (2-7-2). The Caps desperately need to take advantage of the bottom-of-the-league Rapids. Having tied each of their last four matches while Colorado has lost six straight these are the teams to feast on that can set your team on the right track. The Whitecaps overall record against the Rapids is a reasonable 7-9-4 and in their last two visits to Dick’s Sporting Goods Park the caps have escaped with a win and a draw. This feels like a crucial game for the Caps as it...

There is a problem with the Vancouver Whitecaps Defense

There is a problem with the Vancouver Whitecaps Defense

I never thought that this would be said with a Carl Robinson-led Vancouver Whitecaps club, but there are some problems at defense and, especially, defensive midfield.  I have been intending to write an article about the Vancouver Whitecaps defensive midfield situation for some time now; however, after every match, the focal point of said article appears to change. A few weeks ago, the focus was on Efrain Juarez and whether he is even an option for the Whitecaps at defensive midfield. Luckily, my colleague CWilkins did a great job of summarizing Efrain Juarez situation. Although I was going...

El Bicho’s Hat Trick Nets MLS Player of the Week

El Bicho’s Hat Trick Nets MLS Player of the Week

Cristian Techera’s hat trick Saturday afternoon earned The Bug MLS Player of the Week. Cristian Techera earned player of the week honors this week, after his three goals salvaged a 3-3 draw with the New England Revolution. It was the 28th fastest in MLS history, with the first and third goal being a mere 25-minutes apart. Techera becomes the third Vancouver Whitecaps player to score a hat trick, joining Kekuta Manneh’s memorable match against Seattle Sounders on October 9th, 2013, and Camilo Sanvezzo’s season-ending hat trick against Colorado Rapids on October 27th, 2013, which...

Report Card: El Bicho to the Rescue

Report Card: El Bicho to the Rescue

It was the fourth draw on the trot for the Vancouver Whitecaps, as they came back from three deficits to draw the New England Revolution at home, 3-3. For anyone watching the match, it’s safe to say that Cristian Techera made an indelible mark on the match, but how did each of the Whitecaps’ eleven fare? Brian Rowe - 3.5 - Hesitant. Outside the goals allowed, had a few awkward moments on the pitch. For example: running into Ghazal on a ball played into the box, or the weird “Give & Go” with Kendall Waston just outside the penalty area that could have ended horribly. It’s as...

Whitecaps on Loan (May 2018)

Marco Bustos: Bustos’ team is still on break Spencer Richey: Richey played 90 minutes in a 3-2 win over Indy Eleven. He also played 90 minutes in a 4-2 win over Atlanta United II. He started his 3rd match in a row against Charlotte Independence but Cincinnati lost 4-1. After two matches on the bench he returned to the team in a US Open Cup match against the Pittsburgh Riverhounds which Cincinnati won 3-1 Doneil Henry: Henry had an excellent conditioning stint with Ottawa Fury. The Whitecaps will desperately hope he can bring that form to the first team with Kendall Waston away for the...

For the fourth match in a row the Vancouver Whitecaps finished tied to earn a single point in the standings. 4-4-2 today #HereWeCome #VWFCTune in now on TSN & TSN 1040! pic.twitter.com/DOKZhqPWtH— Vancouver Whitecaps (@WhitecapsFC) May 26, 2018 Right off the hop we have a fairly questionable line-up decision going on here. Ali Ghazal pairing at CB beside Kendall Waston while Jose Aja was forced to ride the pine. The first half started off well enough for the Caps. Just twenty seconds in Yordy Reyna found a bit of space on the right side of the box and crossed to an open Kei...
