Whitecaps Need for a Holding Midfielder

Of the many problems the Whitecaps had this year, one position that was never filled was the midfielder that sits right in front of the defence who's job is to break down the other team's attacks and distribute.

I know Gershon Koffie is a fantastic player, but not only would it be a waste of his talent to play him there, it is not actually his real position. Koffie's job is to distribute and start attacks for the Caps and no, Tom Soehn, Peter Vagenas does not fit that description just because he is old and slow.

Many people liked to point at Jay DeMerit and everyone else who was on the backline, but I believe that it was much too easy for opposing teams to cut the Whitecaps open and leave the players on the back line exposed. Hopefully the first player the Whitecaps are looking for is a defensive minded midfielder instead of another friggin' left back like this Lee Young-Pyo character, who is no doubt a quality player, but at this moment not needed and will just be an expensive cap hit.
