Default Whitecaps FC 2014.

So yeah, it's about that time.

New coach, new assistant coach, possible new players, and of course some drama.

I'm not allowed to speak openly about the Camilo issue, but it is still ongoing. Really tears at my strings though, because I was super pumped about watching him play this year.

This is where you guys are going to kill me, but I have to come clean. Two years ago, I finally bought a Chiumiento jersey. A week later, he was traded. At the end of last Season, I bought a Y.P Lee jersey. He retired(no big surprise, though). I got that thing signed and framed, and then decided I'd buy a Camilo jersey.

Yeah. That.

Man, I wished I lived closer to where they play. I'd raise my kids on the Whitecaps like how I was raised on them back in the 80's.

You live in a city five minutes away form where I live, that's no excuse!

Honestly, the games don't take long to get to, and it's even better if you make a day of it since they have lots of pre-game stuff at BC Place.

Even if you can't get to the games, all games are broadcast on TV, so you could still watch them at home, though I think what sets soccer apart from football and hockey is being in the stadium and taking part in the chants and experience.

In september i got a jersey with camilo on it.

it'll be years before i even think about wearing it in public again. I'm going to ask if the screenprinters can change it? but probably not....

Dunno if you saw, but on twitter a couple weeks back Eric Hassli and Davide were joking about Davide coming back to Vancouver...

Davide is always riding that hype train - he switched all of his stuff to "Vancouver" again and was giving out winking smilies to anyone who asked. I can tell you that there is no official talk about him coming back, it's just him playing up to his fans.

What happened to Andre Lewis? Did we just waste a draft pick?

not wasted per se, he wasn't signed to the league prior to the draft like a lot of players are.

i am not sure but the whitecaps may retain his rights if he ever wants to play for the big boys. the NASL isn't exactly the best place to be if you want to be a 'top player' as he said he wanted to be after the caps drafted him.



and camilo is officially gone... and Robbo hasn't done a thing so far this transfer window....

granted there is a lot of young talent up front but replacing 22 goals? replacing the only real free kick specialist on the team? they still need a playmaker, still need a right back (Not one signed to the team!!!) still need a backup goalkeeper (which could be Carducci but, i mean... thats a big ask for a kid)

and and and....

i do not have high hopes for this season.

I left the last game of the season on a super high, that was such an amazing game and the feels all around were great. All of that hype for an amazing followup season has pretty much been crushed in the past two weeks.


Ediiiiiit.

Right, pretend we didn't see that. If you could edit your post I would be forever grateful. Because reasons.

Also looks like lewis will be either on loan to the caps or they have to transfer to get him.

Confusing to say the least. Why didn't the team/mls release the info before or at the time of the draft? Why let this confusion happen? Makes the team and the league look a little Disney....

I don't really have any info on that situation itself, it's a big cluster****.

seriously training starts in 2 days and there are no new signings? just college kids and residency trailists?!?!

'Caps got a couple mill and 2 free DP spots, and an extra international roster spot.


MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN ROBBO

Which reminds me the international roster slots are bs. Fine make the team have at least 3 canadians, but why limit international players? Surely MLS understands that the quickest way to improve the profile of the league (and thus profitability with tv deals etc.) is to bring in the best available talent.... which is NOT north american. We need more mainland european and south american players in this league....

Beitashour, apparently?

Add some more all star to the defense. Better than I expected to be honest

On a non-Canucks note... Whitecaps get their new #10!

Preseason being done I am cautiously optimistic. The midfield looks strong enough to retain possession.

Hopefully mattocks can retain his form and miller can stay healthy.

Also, new kit isn't new. But thats ok because the old away kit was my favourite.

A lot of potential with the young squad, but equally as many question marks. I'm excited to see Laba playing next to NRC though.
