NWSB Newcomer and Vancouver Whitecaps blogger Alistair Corp tells us his thoughts on the MLS trade that happend on Friday between our Whitecaps FC and Toronto FC. The Headline: The Caps announced Friday afternoon that they had traded striker/designated player Eric Hassli to TFC. The front office could be readying another big move, after bringing in Barry Robson, Kenny Miller and Dane Richards.
NWSB Insider and Vancouver Whitecaps blogger C-Mac reports today on the news we found out yesterday that French striker Sebastien Le Toux has been traded to the N.Y. Red Bulls for winger Dane Richards. Le Toux’s greatest value is as a true two player and he will be greatly missed in this regard. Speculation that the movement of Chiumiento earlier in the week and Le Toux is to clear salary and space for the acquisition of a forward.
Did you miss the Vancouver Whitecaps vs. San Jose Earthquakes? NWSB Insider and Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us San Jose’s patience paid off as they absorbed the pressure then countered late on for a convincing 3-1 win over Van City. The roof caved in when Chris Wondolowski slipped past a woefully out of place Jay DeMerit.
Did you miss the Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Philadelphia Union? NWSB Insider and Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us without Hassli, Camilo or Mattocks, and with a subdued performance from Davide Chiumiento, there was little initiative to break the deadlock. Sebastien Le Toux’s late run into the box was the best effort of the game.
Did you miss the Vancouver Whitecaps vs. DC United? NWSB Insider and Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us that Jay DeMerit spearheaded defense and kept them sharp while Joe Canon made a terrific save in goal that surely made the highlight reels. The midfield was solid defensively but had little to offer moving forward.
Did you miss the Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Chivas USA Saturday? NWSB Insider and Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us the front line did not have a lot of ball to work with, due to low possession numbers, but worked hard to check back. Eric Hassli’s presence in the box drew a lot of attention on the cross by Camilo, opening up space for Jay DeMerit’s late run and header for goal.
Did you miss the Montreal Impact vs. Vancouver Whitecaps Saturday? NWSB Insider and Whitecaps blogger C-Mac tells us the back line keyed this win with their strong positional play and strength in the tackle. Gershon Koffie, Jun Marques Davidson, Chiumiento and Camilo were solid for the most part. Sebastien Le Toux had a great game.
