Whitecaps player departures

Vancouver Whitecaps announced today the retirement of defender/midfielder Chris Franks and the release of forward Carlo Corazzin.


While he did get a little chunky in the end and perhaps hung on a little too long, let's not forget that Carlo did a hell of a lot of of work for the Nats over the years. Some good memories in there, especially that bicycle kick at the Gold Cup. Thanks for the memories...

Have to agree Carlo has been great for his country, never said NO. Fond memories include Vancouver 86'ers play, Gold Cup, and stints in the English Leagues, with North Hampton Town , and Oxford United, among others.

Well Done Carlo Cheers !!!!

Carlo's bicycle-kick goal vs Costa Rica in the 2000 Glod Cup was the greatest goal ever scored in a Canadian jersey. Not to mention he won the Golden Boot at the 2000 Gold Cup. Needless to say he was an integral part of our 2000 Gold Cup victory (God, was that 6 years ago !).

Carlo was also a member of the 1992 CSL Championship, Winnipeg Fury.

On behalf of all the old Fury fans, have a great retirement ! You made my season-tickets worthwhile.
