With the post season coming to an end prematurely for Caps fans, Alistair is here to help you transition back to your regular life, with a handful of awards based on former Whitecaps stars.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Whitecaps blogger Alistair Corp weighs in with his last post game recap from Thursday. For the last time until March, we present to you, things to love and things to hate. The Whitecaps counter attack wasn’t an attack at all. It was a dump and chase game that made Alistair think he was watching hockey. Good thing Brad Knighton was in. He has been nothing short of solid in these two months following his takeover from Joe Cannon.
Whitecaps 4-0 Chivas USA The Vancouver Whitecaps finally got back to their winning ways on Wednesday night, winning a huge game 4-0. The win puts the Whitecaps up 5 points over FC Dallas, with two games remaining. FC Dallas has 3 games remaining, including a Sunday game against the same Chivas team. Love ‘em Cautiously Optimistic [...]
Whitecaps 2-2 draw with the Colorado Rapids on Sunday. The Good. Super Kenny Miller finally showed what Martin Rennie had been telling us all along – the man knows how to put the ball home! He buried a beauty for his second of the year and first at BC Place. Three chances the ‘Caps had to clear that ball away from danger and three times the most reliable ‘Caps defenders whiffed. (the bad)
Whitecaps 0-1 FC Dallas The Vancouver Whitecaps suffered their fifth consecutive defeat, losing to FC Dallas, a team that is basically made of glass. FC Dallas is now trailing the Whitecaps by one point for the final playoff spot, but the ‘Caps have one game in hand. Love ‘Em 11/11, Rennie! An excellent starting Xl selected [...]
NWSB Insider and rookie Vancouver Whitecaps blogger Alistair Corp gives us his love ‘em hate ‘em from the Dallas FC vs. Whitecaps FC matchup. The ‘Caps offense struggled mightily Wednesday night. Martin Bonjour picked up his fifth yellow card of the season last night. It’s Sounders week on Saturday. If Jay DeMerit isn’t back by then, look for Alain Rochat to slide inside next to Andy O’Brien and Jordan Harvey to take his spot on the left.
NWSB Insider and rookie Vancouver Whitecaps blogger Alistair Corp gives us his love ‘em hate ‘em from the Real Salt Lake vs. Whitecaps FC matchup. Despite the victory by the Whitecaps, they still must feel frustrated and the obvious missed penalty by a Salt Lake defender in the 10th minute. Joe Cannon got a straight red card in Vancouver’s last match, handling the ball outside the box (saving a goal albeit).
NWSB Insider and rookie Vancouver Whitecaps blogger Alistair Corp gives us his thoughts on Irish defender Andy O’Brien signing with the Whitecaps FC. O’Brien is a veteran in England, appearing in over 300 matches for various clubs. He says having another world class player on the team will bring us another step closer to being a poster boy of success for the league.
NWSB Insider and rookie Vancouver Whitecaps blogger Alistair Corp gives us his love ‘em hate ‘em from the Whitecaps FC vs. Real Salt Lake matchup. With the departures of Eric Hassli and Le Toux, and with Jay DeMerit not 100% rested from the mid-week All-Star match, the Whitecaps came out a little flat tonight at Rio Tinto. With a little more time together, Dane Richards and Darren Mattocks can be a lethal combination for the ‘Caps.
NWSB Insider and rookie Vancouver Whitecaps blogger Alistair Corp tells us the five things he’s watching for tonight in the Whitecaps FC vs. Real Salt Lake matchup. On the road again for Van City. The Whitecaps start the first of a huge home and home stretch against second place Real Salt Lake, tonight in Utah. Kenny Miller to get first start for one, and Barry Robson’s leadership, and Jay DeMerit’s on field stamina.
NWSB Insider and blogger Alistair Corp talks about the BC Place Whitecaps FC experience. For him the best part is towards the end of the pregame excitement, Whitecaps players, from the Men’s, Reserves and Woman sides come out for an autograph session. If you’re lucky enough this year, you may have already collected an Omar Salgado, Barry Robson and Kenny Miller autograph for your man cave!
Vancouver Whitecaps FC Blogger C-Mac is back with his matchday summary between the your Whitecaps FC and Chicago Fire. Man of the match was yet again Darren Mattocks. Darren Mattocks continues to be the straw that stirs the drink for Vancouver and he was fouled 4 times by an aggressive Chicago defence. Vancouver must have been tired at the end of a five game league tour.
