We need a massive upgrade in midfield. Maybe the young turks will grow to be studs, but that will take some time. I am fine keeping Rusty, but the only midfielder here who helps us know is Inbeom.  Erice needs to go, as does Andy Rose.

Teibert and Rose need to be back ups, not regular starters, imo.  MDS seems to value Rose, so I don't see him going anywhere, much to the dismay of the fanbase.  The young turks you speak of won't be emerging with this team:  they'll be making their breakthrough elsewhere.

My two cents on the Whitecaps search for a new Technical Director. https://thisglasscity.wordpress.com/2019/08/21/technical-direction/

Caps started 6 Canadians tonight in LA.  Making the game even more enjoyable to watch than it already was going to be.  2-2 in the 63rd   Ricketts scores to make it 3-2! Kudos to dos Santos for g

They will hire a sporting director who will report to ownership..no more president..lenarduzzi now a club liaison https://www.whitecapsfc.com/post/2019/08/16/whitecaps-fc-hire-sporting-director-g

More evidence Whitecaps don't know how to provide opportunities to young players. Liam Fraser on his days at the Whitecaps:

Fraser doesn’t offer much about his time in the Whitecaps organization, saying: “It was all right.”

But pressed, he spills.

“They never gave me the opportunity I felt I deserved there and I think a lot of people over there tried taking credit for something I don’t think they built up at all ... Last time I went to Vancouver I had a couple of people, part of the (Vancouver) organization – I won’t name anyone – say ‘Oh, it was great to see a Whitecaps product.’ And I said ‘You guys didn’t give me nothing.“’

He believes the Whitecaps, while giving him a chance to play in his own age group, “never pushed me for that next step.”

“I owe everything to Toronto FC and the people that gave me opportunity here,” he said.

As a result Fraser looks forward to games against the Whitecaps. “I love them.”

As been mentioned before he doesn't have Canadian citizienship. I'll just assume people are joking because the thought that the Whitecaps are directing players to play for the US is a lets just say... an interesting thought. 

Another bigger picture item is.. if we don't want the US picking off dual nationals we shouldn't have them playing in the USSD or whatever it's called. Especially since our teams always excel and get in to the final rounds where the spotlight really turns on these players

I was joking, but according to this he does have Canadian citizenship:

I know that Odunze did not have Canadian citizenship at the time he started playing for the US. From what I understand, he has since acquired it, but by then he was probably too entrenched in the American system.

I think they means he might not be eligible for Canada ever... I thought you couldn't switch if you didn't hold the nationality prior to playing in official FIFA competition.

A very good one. He's one of those players who is so technically good and intelligent, I believe he wouldnt look out of step playing anywhere in the world. I think the problem last year was he didn't have complementary pieces in the midfield with him and at first tried to do too much
