Iain MacIntyre: Caps' fresh face Fredy Montero still has the hunger for titles, the thirst for goals

China has many things to offer professional soccer players. Twitter — free speech — is not among them. So with his old team, Fredy Montero might have been unaware that his friend and former Seattle Sounders teammate, Brad Evans, gave him a blast last week when Montero signed with the Vancouver Whitecaps. “Despite the stupid-ass MLS […]

Whitecaps' leaky defence sunk their 2016 season

Whitecaps' leaky defence sunk their 2016 season

Here’s a simple truth: if the Vancouver Whitecaps are going to have success in 2017, they need to rediscover the defensive form of 2015. By nearly every metric, the Whitecaps were among, if not the best, defensive squad in Major League Soccer two years ago. Last year they found themselves among the league’s worst. The […]

Patrick Johnston: Caps have leg up after away leg, despite Bug's wild groin kick

Patrick Johnston: Caps have leg up after away leg, despite Bug's wild groin kick

Mission Accomplished? Fair to say that, yes. The Whitecaps may not have been pretty in battling to a 1-1 draw Wednesday night against the Red Bulls, but away games, especially in a tough knockout competition, aren’t supposed to be. It’s the result that counts, and the Caps come home with the advantage because of their […]

Red Bulls 1 Whitecaps 1: Vancouver holds on, get crucial CCL road goal

The ship was creaky at times, but it’s the result that matters. Job done for the Vancouver Whitecaps, who held on for a 1-1 tie Wednesday at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., against New York in the first leg of a CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final. When you get an away goal, everything feels better, […]

Whitecaps Game Day: Season starts early with CONCACAF quarters clash

Can you feel the buzz? No? Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson says he does: “It’s a big game.” So does Red Bulls bench boss Jesse Marsch: “We don’t feel fully prepared but there’s an urgency and excitement.” Yes, the 2017 Whitecaps season is here. It’s the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals. The Whitecaps are in Harrison, N.J., to […]

The Whitecaps wrapped up their pre-season Wednesday in Portland with a leaky 2-1 loss to the host Timbers.

Whitecaps confirm signing of striker Fredy Montero

The noise had been there for a couple days, now it’s official: the Whitecaps have signed striker Fredy Montero on a one-year loan from Chinese club Tianjin Teda.

Whitecaps rookie Jake Nerwinski already a fan of Vancouver: He's a hiker

Sure, the Whitecaps needed a depth right back. Sure, Jake Nerwinski’s soccer talent looks to fit the bill. But sometimes the match is even better than you realize: The city turns out to suit the player just as well. Nerwinski’s done his research. “I like to hike,” Nerwinski said Thursday, after he and the club announced […]

Sheanon Williams hoping to help solidify Vancouver Whitecaps’ shaky defence

Sheanon Williams wants to bring some of his hometown’s championship swagger to the Vancouver Whitecaps. Acquired from the Houston Dynamo in December, the 26-year-old Boston native was still glowing this week after New England’s improbable comeback victory in the Super Bowl. The Patriots overcame a 25-point deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in overtime […]

Patrick Johnston: No success in learning Welsh but Caps come away happy from 'gruelling' camp

Don’t expect the Whitecaps to take up speaking in Welsh to conceal on-field conversations. But that’s about the only thing that didn’t go right on their 10-day pre-season tour of Wales. “They tried to get us to say the longest town (name) possible, it just sounded like a mush of letters put together that my […]

Marc Weber: Whitecaps will benefit from wing battle between Davies and Manneh

The scouting report on this year’s Vancouver Whitecaps still reads: “Ask again later.” Sure, their CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final against the New York Red Bulls kicks off in just three weeks, and the Major League Soccer season starts March 5, but this isn’t the final roster for opening day. It can’t be. Surely. They’ve yet […]

David Norman Jr. is now a professional soccer player by definition. He has the USL contract with Whitecaps FC 2 to prove it. But a big reason why the 18-year-old midfielder from Coquitlam has made it this far is that he’s long had the mindset of a pro. “He’s acted like a professional since he […]
