Our man C-Mac has his finger firmly on the pulse of the Vancouver Whitecaps in their second season of MLS soccer. What a month. Atiba Harris underwent successful surgery. The team did fairly well in the Voyageurs Cup play, blowing out Edmonton, before losing to Toronto FC in the last 8 minutes. There was an unexpected 2-1 win over San Jose, before a 4-1 thrashing by New England.
Our man C-Mac has his finger firmly on the pulse of the Vancouver Whitecaps in their second season of MLS soccer. Forwards Etienne Barbara and Darren Mattocks are both very close to returning, with Mattocks back in training. There was a Hassli sighting this week. He scored. Hopefully this breakthrough for Hassli, who had been approaching almost 20 games without a goal, will trigger a landslide.
Our man on the Whitecaps beat C-Mac brings us some news out of Vancouver. The Vancouver Whitecaps have traded goalkeeper Jay Nolly. With the trade, Whitecaps goalie Joe Cannon will get extra looks in net and they will get to bring up an up-and-comer in Brian Sylvestre. This is a risky move for Vancouver. Martin Rennie hopes this works out.
