Cascadia Cup Sounders FC vs. Whitecaps FC

MLS Superdraft Darren Mattocks Whitecaps

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.

Whitecaps Season Preview

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.

FC Dallas vs. Vancouver

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.

Whitecaps Notebook

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.

Our man C-Mac has his finger firmly on the pulse of the Vancouver Whitecaps in their first season of MLS soccer. This week he looks at the Whitecaps forwards.
