    It's funny how every thread on this board that refers to the Whitecaps ends up basically concluding they should play with nobody on the field, for the sake of Canadian soccer.

    I'm glad that Bustos is doing really well at Pacific. I really wish that Robinson had seen fit to use him in his proper position when he was breaking through with the 'Caps. He should have been serving as Morales' apprentice. However, Robbo only saw a smaller, attacking player and automatically thought, 'he's a winger.' That being said, I'm not in favour of the 'Caps bringing him back in purely on the basis that Kam Habibullah plays a similar game, but has way more upside. I'd rather Bustos get a shot somewhere else and Kam gets the minutes in Vancouver.

    It means very little in the grand scheme of things, especially when considering his father Ruben was employed by Ontario soccer and worked throughout Southwestern Ontario for years.  However, Ruben recently replied to Canada Soccer's tweet asking fans for their Top 5 favourite Gold Cup Players of all time.  He replied with his top 5

    First time watching him today and wow, i can't believe there's not more hype around here for Wright. Nothing flashy today but his defensive positioning is David-esk and he shows impressive natural strength and balance to shoulder roll defenders like Larin does. Add well timed runs and all kinds of other superior technical ability. And he's a 2003..! Assuming he's got the right attitude I'd say he's got what it takes to be a top top prospect for us in short order. Hopefully we don't have to wait for a European transfer rumour before appreciating some of these exciting young CPL kids more

    Cavallini to Rayo Vallecano transfer rumour and still no official word on the supposed signing of the Scottish guy; Cornelius moved on; even the esports guy gets canned for telling an opponent online to top himself. 
    And the team sucks.
    What a sh*tshow.

    It does feel like it doesn’t it? He’s confident as ever right now and now the door is open for him. He needs to grab this.
    I saw someone post on Twitter that Buchanan plays like he believes he’s the best player in MLS ... that’s what we need.

    If we are talking about wingbacks I want Laryea starting in the big games with Tajon coming off the bench if we are needing a goal.
    For the lesser games I want Tajon starting in order to get experience.
    I also want ZBG to be getting reps. I know it's hard for him, but he needs to be rewarded now and then. He definitely took his chance well in June. Literally couldn't have done more and still didn't get a call to the Gold Cup.

    Whitecaps are shite, and have been shite -is fair assessment. It looks good when they bring in all these Canadians, it's horrible when the team has zero identity, and the players suffer.

    If you can name a CB that has been good for Whitecaps, you're bullshitting yourself. So for me it's a slap in the face that they haven't given him more minutes considering who's been playing in front of him. 
    Maybe the Whitecaps can start thinking about giving their homegrowns like Facchineri some opportunities.

    Crepeau didn't get consistent MLS minutes until age 25. If he can become a starter in the A League, I think it's worth exploring. He would likely jump Leutwiler on the depth chart immediately and be added to the group of Crepeau, St Clair, Pantemis, Carducci and Hasal that should get calls over the next decade (assuming Borjan has a few years left too).
    Cristante is probably kicking himself knowing that he had to spend yesterday being subbed on against England in a Euro Final as opposed to starting against non-FIFA nation Martinique in the Gold Cup.

    If you had told me in January 2020,
    "There's going to be a global pandemic from that COVID 19 thing that's presently in Wuhan and the #CanMNT won't play for the next 14 months"
    I would have said, "I believe you".
    But if you had told me,
    "The #CanMNT will play a Gold Cup match in 2021 and will receive 6 yellow cards and Henry won't be one of them"
    I would have said, "You're a crazy person".

    If he can get consistent minutes in Ligue 1, he’s got to be in contention for us as we have no one playing at that level in our CBs.  Of course, that is a big if, I think he’s more likely for the 2026 cycle than this one.

    I don't understand what the mystery is here.  Herdman clearly let his core choose whether to participate in the Gold Cup.  David stayed with Lille, Borjan went back to prep with his team etc.  This means that the players that were in camp wanted to be in camp, which is why the whole discussion of whether to call Davies or not was non-sensical.  He obviously wanted to be there until he turned his ankle.
    Now Kennedy feeling the club pressure?  Okay, leave him with the team.  I'm personally not happy about that but whatever.  The starting 11 is going to change significantly over the next 8 months.  Might as well get as many of those 12-23 position players some game time with the core that's still there.
