On Thursday morning Vancouver Whitecap captain Jay DeMerit announced his retirement in an open letter to fans. This confirmation comes after multiple members of Vancouver’s media reported the news last night.
Being a supporter of the Vancouver Whitecaps is an emotional roller-coaster to say the least. The Whitecaps wrapped up arguably the most difficult stage of their 2014 campaign on Saturday as they battled Real Salt Lake to a 1-1 draw. Grabbing a point at Rio Tinto is an impressive feat for any team in this […]
Two Canadian clubs will face off this evening in a game that could have massive implications. The Vancouver Whitecaps (6-4-7) currently sit on 25 points from 17 games and Toronto FC (7-5-3) are hot on their tail with 24 points from 15 games played.
The Whitecaps have had a busy week. After a brief pause to enjoy the victory over their Cascadia rivals the Seattle Sounders, the Whitecaps were back preparing to battle the visiting goats this weekend at BC Place. Their opponents this week are Chivas USA who defeated the Montreal Impact 1-0 last week thanks to a […]
On Saturday night the Whitecaps hosted the Seattle Sounders for the second time this year. The Whitecaps were desperate to show both their coach and their fans that the poor performances against Montreal and Colorado were just a speed bump. Thanks to a stunning long range goal from Sebastian Fernandez the home team held on […]
After settling for a 0-0 draw at BC Place against Montreal Impact the Whitecaps hit the road again as they head to Colorado to face the Rapids. I predicted in my mid-week preview article for the game against the Impact that we would see an action packed game full of blistering counter-attacks by Vancouver. I […]
Whitecaps will play their first home game in almost a month tonight versus a depleted Montreal Impact. This will be the third regular MLS season game between these two Canadian teams since joining MLS.
By all accounts the mood in the Whitecaps dressing room is the best it has ever been. A water fight broke out between Gershon Koffie and Nigel Reo-Coker after practice earlier this week which is just one example of the camaraderie in this team since Carl Robinson has taken over as head coach. Undefeated in […]
Another day, another Cascadia classic! My heart rate still hasn’t completely returned to normal after Sunday nights 90 minutes of end to end action between the Vancouver Whitecaps and Portland Timbers.
After dominating their Cascadia rivals but having to settle for a 2-2 draw thanks to a controversial call by the ref, the Whitecaps head to Portland for their second Cascadia cup match of 2014.
This weekend the Vancouver Whitecaps will start to defend their 2013 Cascadia Cup title against their powerful neighbours the Seattle Sounders. While Vancouver enjoyed a bye week; Seattle continued their MLS dominance last week thanks to a jaw dropping goal by Obafemi Martins that gave the Sounders the 1-0 win over San Jose.
A rock band played music from the 70s outside the stadium, a high school orchestra played We Will Rock You inside, and fans arrived in bell-bottoms and afro wigs. The party was in full swing before the 40 year anniversary match on Saturday afternoon. And when the kickoff whistle blew the Whitecaps kept the party […]
On May 5th, 1974 the Vancouver Whitecaps stepped onto the field for the very first time. Their opponent was the San Jose Earthquakes. The Whitecaps lost 2-1, but the home crowd witnessed Neil Ellett score the first ever Whitecaps goal. This weekend, almost exactly four decades later, the Whitecaps and San Jose Earthquakes will battle […]
For a second week in a row the Whitecaps managed to comeback and earn a point from their opponents.
The Whitecaps play the first game of a home and away series versus the Galaxy at the StubHub Center this weekend. The last trip to LA earlier this year ended with Kekuta Manneh rescuing a point against a 10 man Chivas USA. Since joining MLS in 2011, Vancouver has never picked up a point on […]
