NWSB Editor, Insider and Vancouver Whitecaps writer Chris Anderson brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from Wednesday nights match up with the New York Red Bulls. Not a win, but we did earn a point in the 1-1 draw. A fast paced game with a ton of scoring chances, no one could grab the winner. Late goals proved pivotal in this draw, with magnificent play from Martin Bonjour.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC Blogger C-Mac is back with his weekly update and this time focuses on the reserves squad. The team sits first in their division led by keeper Brad Knighton and young Canadian Russell Teibert. Their success leaves the Whitecaps, coached by Martin Rennie with plenty of options going forward.
Our man C-Mac has his finger firmly on the pulse of the Vancouver Whitecaps in their second season of MLS soccer. The Whitecaps set an MLS record of 4 games, 67 minutes of shutting out their opponents. Then San Jose opened the flood gate. With the rash of injuries on the team, this week’s bye should help the Whitecaps out in a big way.
Our man C-Mac has his finger firmly on the pulse of the Vancouver Whitecaps in their second season of MLS soccer. With Darren Mattocks, Eric Hassli, and Atiba Harris all out or suffering lingering injuries, it leaves the Whitecaps thin at striker. Long Tan may get the start he’s been looking for. Etienne Barbara was a frequent scorer in the NASL and it would be good to get a look at him.
