  1. Hey, is too late to grab a ticket or two for tomorrow nights match. Hardcover section preferred.
  2. Not surprising tosee those three names leaving. All three are destined for NASL or USL. Maybe Salgado can catch on with the re-branded Chivas. Alderson shopuld be headed straight to Edmonton. Happy to see Mattocks get some Internatioanl form going three goals in three matches. Not too shabby. We will need Hurtado and Mattocks to take another big step in their development as strikers. As much as Robbo is gonna go out and find a striker to handle most the load. The difference a lot of nights will be secondary scoring and those two will be the main targets in the sense. Dispersal draft is a non-issue for us, with the 19th pick. Big issue right now is who is gonna get protected on the roster for the entry drafts. Hard descisions will be made.
  3. Yeah, Waston was sure an amazing find. Robbo seems to have a knack for finding some gems: Waston, Fernandez, and Mezquida. Plus Morales and Laba who were both proven though, but Morales had that would he wourk in the MLS tag on him to start. He also was instrumental in brining Leveron into the fold under Rennie. I doubt we have seen the last of Leveron pushing for a starting job. He is still only 22 and is on Honduras National team radar, he has the talent to fit at CB back or possibly at CDM. He is composed on the ball and can place some nice long crossing passes for the wings to break out. With a guy like Waston beside him his conservative and sometimes meek defense play would be covered.
  4. Spectacular. What a a finish to the year. What a difference Waston has made to the attitude of the club. He bleeds confidence. TRM mentioned he has 5 cards and 2 goals in 10 games. He just dominates the box. Him and OB have gotten a good rapport with each other, already. Morales finally is seems to be getting some help around him, Rosales, Teibert, Laba and even Seba/Manneh have been bringing their form for the past 5-6 games. I also cannot forget to mention Ousted who made some unreal saves to keep the clean sheet and he also led the MLS in clean sheets on the year. Robbo has done his job and then some. This guy is a motivator and has brought this team of absolute diversity, whether by age, language, and style of play Robbo has gotten these guys to play for each other and the city proudly. Regardless, of how the season ends this has been a special year for the Caps and I cannot wait to see what Wednesday and beyond will bring.
  5. Ousted has been fantastic, his shouting keeps guys accountable. Beitashour has been better since there tiff in the game a few weeks ago. He also has taken over the vocal role since DeMerit's departure, and rightly so Waston is great but not ready to or aware enough to direct everyone and O'Brien is too quiet too. After a offseason of questions, this team has come around to win some big games. Was nice to see Froese get in for a big game and hold his own.
  6. Seriously, what a **** show this season has been over the last couple months. TFC and The Caps, have just dropped major opportunities for themselves game after game. While The Caps might have been lucky to be in the spot they were on the backs of Pedro, TFC has talent coming out there ass for the first time in their existence and they still cannot put any sort of conistency on the pitch. This season started out with so much hope and potential for both clubs and now its back to elimination watches. GodDammit.
  7. But will actually play and is a DP (so if I'm not mistaken only costs 355K on the cap) and he hads a Green Card so no INT spot Also he will play in a spot we definitely could use the help, we have had non-wingers playing wing all year. It will be nice to see a guy wide who doesn't rely on his speed and cutting into the box to be effective. We might actually see some quality crossing. Whitecaps now have a scary midfield. You got Rosales who has like over 40 assists since 2011, two rocks in Laba and Koffie, an engine in Teibert, and potenital MVP in Morales. I cannot wait to get to see this group on the pitch live.
  8. The Province is now reporting the WHitecaps have traded Re-Coker. A long suspected and much needed move to eleviate cap room (Coker making 450k and playing off the bench mostly being used as a back up RB). Caps probably were looking for a Striker, but landed Mauro Rosales instead. A good move I think, I always enjoyed watching Mauro. He will be dangerous alongside Morales as well. This should give Hurtado, Mattocks and Salgado so many gifted chances in the box. http://blogs.theprovince.com/2014/08/21/whitecaps-trade-reo-coker-to-chivas-usa-for-rosales/ ----------Ousted Betia-OB-Leveron-Harvey -------Koffie-Laba Rosales-Morales-Teibert ----------Mattocks
  9. Oh I would imagine so, cannot think how it could been any other way.
  10. This is always good news, 6% is a pretty good rise, it would be interesting to see some segmented results, like how the growth was outside of Cascadia for instance. This year at BC place I have noticed more consistent crowds, can never tell if they moved the tarps up at all since last season either.
  11. I never even mentioned either, and yeah Mitchell, should be on the bench, but that doesn't mean Dean doesn't get his chance. that guy is a brick wall and has had some chances and time to learn the system, plus we have only seen him out of position at LB so far. I never said Mitchell or AOB were playing good, I have been saying we need CB replacements for sometime. However I have no clue if Watson can just break into the MLS as a everyday CB instantly. Maybe eventually, I sure hope so, but I have never seen the guy other then his heading clinic of a highlight reel.
  12. I could see this as just an effort to have a guy to throw in at garbage time to steal points on a set peice. Not sure he will be able to beat out the current core of CB's, but late in a game if you have the sub left, maybe give him a shot at getting on the end of one of Morales' numerous balls into the box. I will hold out some judgment; as so far all the guys who Robbo has brought in have shown they belong in the MLS.
  13. Salgado is a hard situation, for both sides. I believe the Caps should move him on, and that he could use a fresh scenery; however, his value around the MLS I would venture is long gone. His luster from his 2012 status has faded into oblivion. The Caps still hold that forgotten value in him and seem willing to coax him along through the hard times he has faced. I think finch is half right he does look awfully out of place on the field awkward and clumsy. Though I believe most of that is from him not playing since 2012 really. He still has never had a real chance in the MLS in his natural spot. I would hope to see Robbo give him more chances late in games up, even as the lone striker he should be able to get up to Ousted's long balls knock them down with his size and use his skill to layoff to Morales which is how Mattocks has put in his best performances this year. I think Salgado is a could good performances from getting some much needed confidence. He is still young and if he plays well will pull his value across the league back up becoming a useable asset on the pitch and possibly in a trade.
  14. Yeah, Pedro is a magician with the ball. An absolute joy to watch from the stands. I agree they shouldn't settle for less than they want, but I also believe we need to bring in at least a CB to relieve Mitchell from every game starter. OB and Leveron cannot play together as it's way too conservative with them both in. As for striker, we could survive the season i think with the group we have it will be just on Robbo to rotate them so that we find the hot hand every game. Mattocks has had 3 in a row Hurtado had gone 5 or 6 in a row with a goal. Add Manneh, Salgado and Fernandez with the help Morales is bringing with goals and we might be fine. Though it would be magnificent for the club to bring in a guy who can compliment Morales up front and finish his gift wrapped passes and lobs in the box at a much more consistent rate. Not sure who is out there who would be a good fit.
