Jorge Mendoza: “When asked to describe Martin Rennie’s tenure as the Head Coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps, I think a fair assessment would be “positive.” He took on a team that was the worst in the league in 2011 and transformed into a team that is expected to make the playoffs. Unfortunately for Rennie the […]

Photo Credit: WhitecapsFC.com We have been lucky, Vancouver Whitecaps fans. Yes, given that the boys in Blue and White have missed the playoffs in two if their last three years in MLS, I know that my assertion might seem ridiculous. No, I am not talking about the actual collective results achieved. That is a topic […]

I’ll be honest with you. When I was thinking about possible topics for my first Whitecaps XI article, the Blue and White were coming off a tough road game in Portland. The performance of two players stood out to me. The first one was Kekuta Manneh due to the quiet night that the young player […]

Costly Mistakes At The Wrong Time

Yes, sometimes it happens Whitecaps FC fans. Mistakes happen. Costly mistakes happen. On Saturday afternoon the Whitecaps were victims of their own mistakes. Mistakes that could have been avoided and that would have kept their playoffs hopes alive. A loss with such devastating consequences makes it hard not to look for those who we feel […]

(Author’s Note: Owing to the circumstances, this article will serve as a joint recap and preview). Season-high record setting and a Cascadia Cup victory were not enough to keep the train on track, as Vancouver Whitecaps FC (12W-12L-9D) watched the playoffs slip further away Saturday in a 3-2 loss to fifth-place Colorado Rapids (14W-10L-9D).  The […]

This is a shorter preview than normal, owing to the week-long gap between matches and the lack of significant news, the Cascadia Cup win notwithstanding.  I could talk at length about the Cup, but that’s an entire article-worthy topic in and of itself, which I may or may not write about at a later time.  […]

No, dear reader, this column did not suddenly morph from football to music. I will not dissect the lyrics of the catchy pop song by Rihanna. Instead, I will examine the Whitecaps late resurgence in form and how this may or may not be the result of a change in formation that now sees them […]

Here’s the thing. I will be honest. I am very conflicted on this topic and I may not make a lot of sense. However, it is something that has been burning on my mind and I feel that it needs to be discussed. So, with that fair warning, here we go. Last weekend, the Vancouver […]

I have the pleasure of working with Rodrigo, He is a passionate fan not only of the Whitecaps but all the Vancouver-based teams. He is also a volunteer with the Whitecaps organization and you can see him working tirelessly on matchdays organizing and coordinating fan based contests and activations on the field such as the […]

Wow! That’s the only suitable word I can come up with to describe Wednesday night’s match, which saw history unfold in front of a spirited ECS-filled CenturyLink Field.  Not only did the Vancouver Whitecaps (12W-11L-9D) win their second straight match against the Seattle Sounders (15W-10L-6D), incidentally their first Cascadia road win, by the end it […]

(Author’s Note: Due to the short gap between games, this article is intended to serve as both a recap of Sunday and a preview for Wednesday.) There’s no question about it.  The magician still has a few tricks up his sleeve.  The only thing more exciting than the energy of a fired up crowd at […]

I will not write about the Whitecaps’ performance against Real Salt Lake from last Saturday. I really debated it. I thought that I could say that it was probably one of the most irritating, unnerving and frustrating games I have seen them play. I thought of pointing out that having one shot on target at […]
