Yes, the Whitecaps earned an important victory on Saturday in Montreal. I toyed with the idea of writing about it in this space but I am sure that by now you have already read all about it. More importantly, what I really have to say is that yes, it is a better result than a […]

“Gutsy performance”, “Great effort”, and “Hard-fought”. These are some of the descriptors that I have heard and read about the Whitecaps most recent road performance that earned them an away 0-0 draw versus San Jose last Saturday. As fans, we have heard other accolades like “great ball possession”, “earned a clean sheet” and “it is […]

Before the beginning of the 2013 MLS season I asked myself, “what do I expect from the Whitecaps 2013 season”? With the memories of the 2012 season and the expectations created in the offseason, I decided that I would be happy and consider their season a success if they hosted a playoff game at BC […]

Just like Vancouver’s captain Jay DeMerit tied the knot this past weekend, I am also scheduled to exchange “I dos” in Whistler in a couple of weeks. Maybe this is why I have the idea of ‘big days’ and ‘big occasions’ on my mind. The Vancouver Whitecaps had a big day, a big match and […]

No, my dear reader, this article is not about an episode of “The Big Bang Theory” despite what the title might suggest. My point of interest here is the current and future situation of the central back position on the Vancouver Whitecaps squad. The 2013 Central Back Saga has experienced more ups and downs than […]
