Earlier this afternoon CTV's Perry Solkowski made the following announcement on Twitter:
This was shortly followed up by a Tweet from Scott Brown, who is the Vancouver Sun's sports editor:
At any rate former Whitecap Davide Chiumiento seems pleased with Robinson's apparent "appointment":
Omg!!! Best News.......Carl Robinson new whitecaps coach!!! You really deserve it!!!!!— Davide Chiumiento (@DChiumiento) December 13, 2013
And finally Solkowski followed up with this one:
Has Carl Robinson really been given the job? Without an official announcement from the Whitecaps it's all just more speculation, but it sounds as though an official announcement will be made at a press conference on Monday. At any rate, however, it should be an enjoyable afternoon on the social media sites. If anyone needs me I'll be searching the interwebs...
