If you are anything like me (and once we break it down to the sub-atomic level then you almost certainly are) then you will have been infuriated by the Whitecaps on Saturday. Scoring two goals in 90 seconds might cut it in the lower leagues, but at the MLS level you need to be hitting the back of the net every 30 seconds at least.
Still, today is not the day for violent recriminations (that will be tomorrow at around 11.30) so let's be generous and give the team some kudos for their comeback. The poll question today asks who you think deserves the most credit for the late revival against "KC and the Time Wasting Band", but before that let's take a CBC style in-depth look at the results to last weeks question.
You were asked what worried you most after the defeat to the Union, and a massive 38% of you said that you were being kept awake at night by the quality of MLS officiating, whilst a mere 5% were concerned about the Whitecaps ability to score goals ( good call everybody!). The other three options were a virtual tie, so take an ill deserved bow Eric Hassli, Martin Nash and international call-ups.
So now onto the question of the day.
Who deserves most credit for the late comeback against Kansas?
Atiba Harris- He may not be the most gifted player but he scored a goal and never stopped working. He never let the Kansas defenders rest and his effort to win a 50-50 challenge set up the final goal. (8 votes)
Camilo Sanvezzo- He was dangerous throughout the game and was in the right place to score the first and did brilliantly to get the second. (29 votes)
Nizar Khalfan- He injected power and pace into the game and set up two of the goals with great crosses. If he had scored from that shot at the end he would have achieved sporting perfection and ascended straight to heaven. (18 votes)
Teitur Thordarson- He could have given the game up at 3-0 (or even 3-1) but he sent on players to try to get goals. He was risking a bigger defeat but got a fantastic result as reward for his courage (24 votes)
The Whitecaps Fans- They could have given the game up at 3-0 (or even 3-1) but the vast majority stayed and cheered on the team which played a huge part in boosting the players, and gave themselves great bragging rights over anybody who had left the game (12 votes)
