  1. Last week was a prime example of how one team being home and the other away had an effect on individual players. Robinson told us earlier in the week that he would need to make his mind up about who he wanted to take down to Utah with the MLS side and who would get valuable playing time back in Vancouver with WFC2. What that meant was that both Tim Parker and Christian Dean stayed home and played the full 90 minutes in the match. Great for their development, as the chances of them seeing any playing time against Real Salt Lake was slim. The downside of that was that the 'Caps then travelled t

  3. Russell Teibert Teibert, sporting the Captain's armband with Pedro Morales suspended, returned to Vancouver's starting eleven for their 0-1 win in Salt Lake on Saturday night – it was his fifth start and sixth appearance of the season. Fielded in a more-advanced midfield position, atop a central triangle based by Matias Laba and Gershon Koffie, Teibert was a force on the night, giving an early indication of his intent with a thunderous challenge on Olmes Garcia inside the five five minutes of play. He would receive a booking for his trouble – his first of the season – and have to be careful
  4. THE GOOD David Ousted Gets Another Clean Sheet Sure I could have picked Darren Mattocks because he scored the game winning goal. I could have picked Matias Laba for his brilliant play clogging up the midfield. Or I could have picked Kendall Waston for shutting down all RSL forwards in the defensive box. They were all excellent but I picked Ousted because he has been solid all season and he continued his dominant performance and got his third clean sheet in four games on the road this season. With all the road woes this team has had since joining MLS, this season's road success is critical.

  6. REPORT: Vancouver Whitecaps' Carl Robinson served up a tactical masterclass down in Sandy, Utah on Saturday night. Gone was the usual 4-2-3-1 formation, to be replaced with what amounted to three defensive midfielders on occasions, splitting to form a diamond midfield at others. It was introduced at short notice and it worked "to a tee" as Robinson said afterwards, as the Whitecaps played out a defensive first half before controlling play in the second. A fine Darren Mattocks header ten minutes from time was the difference between the two sides, as Vancouver left Rio Tinto with three points
  7. Froese looks like he's been playing MLS for years, but ask him how he feels about that and he just shrugs it off in an equally composed, non-fazed manner, although he does feel he has adjusted well to the noticeable step up in quality from Residency to first team level. "I just feel that every game is another focus," Froese told AFTN at training this week. "Just refocus on the task in hand. It's just like playing, training here, playing a game right. It's what I do every day and I try to do that on the field. "It's definitely faster and there's more pressure to play. When you go on the field
  8. REPORT: Seven games in to the new MLS season and do we really know just what sort of team Vancouver Whitecaps are this year? We've seen the good, the really good, the bad and the ugly so far, with the latter being served up in San Jose on Saturday evening as the 'Caps went down 1-0 to a 75th minute Sanna Nyassi goal. Neither team really deserved anything from the match. Chances were at a premium, while a lot of the postgame analysis will focus on how the team leading MLS in not just the standings, but also in shot and shots on target, couldn't muster up one single shot on goal during the ent
  9. I don’t know what it is about the centre-back position and the Whitecaps but there’s definitely a jinx of some sort hanging over them. So many injuries over the years in the position. Has anyone actually been immune? Maybe Robbo needs to go and take a piss in each corner flag, ala Barry Fry, to exorcise those demons, but he made it very clear at the start of the season that he wanted to carry five quality centrehalfs and it hasn’t taken long to see why. Just who will be taking the field against the Earthquakes on Saturday is anyone’s guess right now, and there's a few unknowns still thrown i
  10. "It’s a great signing for the club," Robinson told reporters on Thursday. "We’re delighted to have Cristian on board. Hopefully we can get him here quicker, as quick as we want, next week sometime, with all the visas and paperwork done. We’re delighted to have him. He’s coming in to the right environment here. He's coming into a place where he knows a couple of the guys." Techera speaks little English at the moment but he'll be made to feel comfortable in his new surroundings by the number of his fellow Latinos at the club. Amongst them will be two familiar faces in Nicolas Mezquida and Dieg
  11. REPORT: With all eyes on Vancouver Whitecaps after their climb to the MLS summit, the question was whether the juggernaut would continue or would a talented Columbus Crew side prove to be a banana skin. In the end, the Whitecaps showed a fighting quality that shows just why they sit top of the standings, but they were made to work very hard for a share of the points after an entertaining 2-2 draw. A goal in each half from Kei Kamara put Columbus ahead twice, with Octavio Rivero and Darren Mattocks cancelling those strikes out with one of their own. Vancouver will have been disappointed not
  12. Russell Teibert Teibert returned to Vancouver's starting eleven after a two-match absence, helping to guide his side to an impressive 2-0 win over defending champion LA Galaxy on Saturday night – it was his third start of the young season, having missed one match on international duty and been held out against Portland last week. Taking up his deep midfield position, alongside Matias Laba, Teibert was a force on the night, stifling LA attacks at every turn and helping to push Vancouver forward in the other direction. Robbie Keane, with whom Teibert has had several run-ins in the past, was n
  13. Today on the Two Solitudes Soccer Podcast, Duane and Kevin talked to Will Parchman about development, the USL-MLS partnership and the national team side of the equation for Canada and the United States. Also, they previewed the Concacaf Champions League Semi Final 2nd leg game between Liga Deportiva Alajuelense and the Montreal Impact. Plus the latest installment of the famous Canadian Review, the most popular segment in Canadian podcasting! Until next time, have a great Champions League! @24thminute @KevLaramee https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/two-solitudes-soccer-podcast/id833616975
  14. Today, Kevin previewed the historical game that will take place this Tuesday at 10pm Estadio Alejandro Morera Soto in Alajuela, Costa Rica. Montreal arrived in enemy territory Saturday with a two goal advantage, looking to stop the existence of "la r3 m0ntada" and book their tickets to the Concacaf Champions League Final! Kevin also reviewed the first game in the history of the FC Montreal, a 2-0 loss against their 401 Derby rivals Toronto FC2 . Kevin also reviewed the Impact's home opener versus Orlando City Soccer Club, a 2-2 draw and gave his impression on KAKA in MLS in 2015 so far! Po

  16. THE GOOD Laba and Teibert's domination of pitch If you where only listening to the game on the radio you wouldn't even have known Robbie Keane was playing. He was invisible all game long. Other than a few touches far away from the goal, he wasn't a factor at all this game. Teibert was in his pocket all game long. Didn't give him any breathing room at all. If the ball was heading to Keane, Teibert made sure he was on him and making just enough contact to not get a foul but enough for Keane to be frustrated. At one point Keane went to the ref and started whining about the contact that he was
  17. REPORT (by Steve Pandher): They didn’t leave it as late as most have come to expect, but Vancouver Whitecaps won their fourth straight beating the defending MLS Cup Champions LA Galaxy 2-0. It was Kekuta Manneh who opened the scoring with his first while Octavio Rivero collected his fourth of the season and David Ousted earned his third cleansheet. It was a dominating first half by the Whitecaps as they controlled the flow of the match and had the advantage in possession. Unfortunately they weren’t able to finish and the best opportunity came from Pedro Morales early on, who spun from his
  18. "He's the best," Robinson said bluntly when asked by reporters this week what makes Arena so successful. "You can talk about young coaches coming through and all that but he wins things. He gets the best out of his group of players. He's got some fantastic players to choose from by the way. "If you win and you've got good players and you're able to manage them and consistently do it, not just one year, but consistently do it, arguably you're the best. And he is the best. The way he conducts himself, the way he manages himself, the way he manages his players. To all of us young, aspiring coach
  19. THE GOOD The Great Dane David Ousted A great showing by Ousted, he stepped up when his team needed him to get the three points from their Cascadian rivals. On the goal you could put a little bit of blame on him for his lack of rebound control, but there is no way that shot should have been given up by Steven Beitashour (Spoiler Alert - see "The Bad" below). He stood on his head a few times to keep the score tied 1-1 to give the team the chance they needed to win the game. There was an interesting exchange between him and Octavio Rivero on the Portland cross that just missed the far post. I
  20. The Whitecaps starting eleven The 'Caps get fired up in their pre-match huddle Scarves up if you love the 'Caps David Ousted starts as he means to go on, getting down to thwart a low George Fochive shot Fochive is in the thick of the action again, bringing down Octavio Rivero for a 15th minute free kick Up steps Nicolas Mezquida Who curls it over the wall and into the bottom corner for the opening goal Nico and Pedro celebrate the 'Caps going 1-0 up Dirty, dirty Ridgewell Portland dominate an uninspiring second half until Fanendo Adi pokes home an 82nd minute equaliser Boooooooooooo But there'
  21. Today on a very busy Two Solitudes Soccer Podcast, Duane and Kevin talked to Dave Clark of Sounder at Hear about the Sounders and their great potential this year. They also talked about the NASL and its place in Canada, could it be the answer to our needs? Plus, a 401 Derby happened last Saturday between FC Montreal and Toronto FC 2 and they talked about the importance of the USL going forward, a USL Radio preview of some sorts! Canada Men's National Team Senior Program is on a hotstreak, winning their last two game 1-0 and 3-0 against Guatemala and Porto Rico . And to cap off a jam pack show,
  22. Kofi Opare Having been rooted to the bench after a mid-season trade from Los Angeles in 2014, Opare finally got on the pitch for DC in Saturday's 1-0 win over his former side, making his first appearance of the season. And it almost wasn't to be. Once more amongst the substitutes, the Niagara Falls, Ontario-raised Opare was only called into action due to an ankle injury suffered by standout sophomore Steve Birnbaum, who landed awkwardly after going up for a header, prompting Ben Olsen to bring the Canadian onto the pitch in the fifth minute. The defender did not do anything particularly sp

  24. REPORT (by Steve Pandher): Vancouver Whitecaps left it to the last moments but for the third straight week they scored a late winner to defeat Cascadian rivals Portland Timbers 2-1. The victory clinching goal came from new signing Robert Earnshaw, with Nicolas Mezquida scoring his first of the season in the first half before Portland countered late on with a goal from Fanendo Adi. It was the Timbers who looked to open the scoring in the 4th minute when George Forchive had a strike from outside the box that forced Ousted into making a diving stop to turn the ball around the post for a corner
  25. ... about the new MLS franchise and their beginning of the season. Plus another home opener is happening before the IMFC-ORL game, the historical first game in the USL fo FC Montréal. The team coached by Phillippe Eullaffroy (also director of the academy) will make their season debut against 401 Derby rivals Toronto FC 2, or if you prefer, Torontwo FC this Saturday at 12:30 pm at the Big O! If you have a ticket for the MLS game, it is good for the USL game ! Kevin had the chance to talked to Jems Geffrard (defender for FCMTL) and Phillippe Eullaffroy after their last preseason game last week!
