Alphonso Davies Update

Alphonso Davies Update

Now eligible to play for Bayern Munich, we chronicle what Vancouver Whitecaps former starlet has been doing while in Germany. Entering the 2018 Major League Soccer season, the biggest question on Vancouver Whitecaps fans’ minds was where Alphonso Davies would be transferred and for how much. As the season progressed the anticipated transfer fee increased. Many expected that news would come following the 2018 season, however, Bayern Munich put a quick end to the courtship by agreeing to a potential 22 million dollar transfer fee on July 25th. While Davies would not be eligible to play for...

Well fortunately for you I am a nerd and able to give you an overview. Career Summary: Cornelius’ club career thus far has been up and down. In 2014 he...

My brothers, sisters, and those that lieth betwixt I see in your tweets the same fear that would take the heart of me A day may come when it is time to freak out about the roster situation of the Vancouver Whitecaps, when we must come to terms that no manager can succeed under this front office and support Pacific F.C instead, but it is not this day! An hour of crappy imports and residency grads planted firmly to the bench, when our support cannot take the heartache anymore, but...

Why Would Anyone Ever Play for the Whitecaps’ U23 Team?

Why Would Anyone Ever Play for the Whitecaps’ U23 Team?

I totally fail to see the appeal of the team to talented footballers between the ages of 18 and 23 This question has been sitting at the back of my mind for a while now but it was Michael McColl’s article that really brought it to the fore. I have been wracking my brains but I can’t think of a single good reason why anyone would want to play for Vancouver Whitecaps’ newly formed U23 team. If you’re a young talented footballer in Canada then just about every footballing option out there seems like clearly a better choice. As someone who’s a similar age to the players that...

Stop it, Get Some Help: Why it’s Silly to Worry That the Vancouver Whitecaps Haven’t Signed Anyone

Stop it, Get Some Help: Why it’s Silly to Worry That the Vancouver Whitecaps Haven’t Signed Anyone

Just relax, please Part 1: Chill Look fella’s, i’m noticing a lot of unreasonable panic in Whitecaps land lately. People are freaking out that the Whitecaps roster, as it stands, is bad, and that the pile of money (both theoretical and actual) hasn’t been spent yet. Now I’m aware that the Whitecaps aren’t run by the most competent people, and healthy skepticism of them is good, but can you give them a minute? It’s not even Christmas yet. Major signings in MLS before mid January are extremely rare. The Whitecaps added 10 players in the lead up to the 2018 season. The only one...
