Being a Whitecaps fan at the moment is a bit like suffering death by a thousand cuts; no great bursts of pain just lots of little tiny defeats that sap the will to live.
As for the future, well I think that we can agree that it won't be long before we will all be fighting each other, and numerous feral creatures, to the death for whatever food remains edible in our radioactive drenched atmosphere.
So for now let's try to forget our present pain and the impending apocalypse by wallowing in the safety of sepia toned nostalgia.
The poll question today therefore asks you to select which former Vancouver player you would most like to draft into the current team.
First though the results of last weeks poll which wanted you to nominate which Whitecap was most deserving of a jump in pay. Over 50% of you were happy to give the money to Terry Dunfield, with Jonathan Leathers making a healthy showing in second place.
I would also like to personally thank Jay Nolly and his family for registering their opinion.
Now vote below to escape the torment of the terrible days ahead.
Which Former Vancouver Player Would You Most Like In The Current Team
Alan Ball- Dynamic midfielder who led the Caps to the NASL Championship and was MVP in the Soccer Bowl. Like Terry Dunfield on steroids. (12 votes)
Kevin Hector- Another member of the 1979 squad. Scored 39 times in 63 games. Would guarantee a regular supply of goals. (15 votes)
Carl Valentine- Former Whitecap and 86er forward. Played for Canada in the World Cup. May not be the best player here but would cement the bond between team and fans more than any other. (4 votes)
Phil Parkes- Goalkeper who kept Bruce Grobelaar out of the team. Would give the Caps a safe pair of hands at the back week in and week out. (2 votes)
Peter Beardsley- Played 73 games for Vancouver scoring 28 goals. Could play as a forward or just behind the frontman. Like Chiumiento but better. (19 votes)
