Playoff Aspirations Pretty Much Snuffed Out


The Vancouver Whitecaps fell 3-1 to FC Dallas last night, in a loss that makes playoff elimination much more of a "when" than an "if".

424 Words on the Whitecaps


We should probably wait until tomorrow, when our blood has cooled and our buzzes have worn off, to really hit the Vancouver Whitecaps' 2012 post-mortem. Tonight, Vancouver did well most of the...



As we established earlier today, I don't give a damn about the history. The Vancouver Whitecaps making the playoffs for the first time since 2010 will be a big deal to MLS-era-only fans, of course,...

Camilo Sanvezzo Makes Me Drink



Canada - Panama, and How We're Like Them


Canada beat Panama in World Cup qualifying on Friday, partially by being more like our opponents than we may want to admit.

That Vancouver - Dallas Game Sucked and I Hated It


The Vancouver Whitecaps - FC Dallas game wasn't just a loss. It was sloppy, dull, chippy, divey, dull, incompetent, and dull.

The Vancouver Whitecaps were missing three starters and all of their finish as they dropped a 2-0 decision to FC Dallas Wednesday evening at B.C. Place Stadium.

Canada's victory over France did more than win them bronze: it won them a place as Canadian soccer immortals.

Canada - Japan Post-Game: Could Be Worse...


Canada lost 2-1 to Japan in their Olympic opener but at least looked good doing it. Their position going into their next game against South Africa could have been so much worse...

Vancouver - San Jose Post-Game: Inevitable


Why did Frank Yallop look so miserable when his Earthquakes were tied 1-1 with the Whitecaps? Did he sense the inevitable?

Vancouver - Los Angeles Review


Did the Whitecaps draw against Los Angeles because they were tired? Because they got cocky? Or because they were just stupidly unlucky?

Whitecaps - Red Bulls Post-Game


The Vancouver Whitecaps did well apart from the lead they blew, but if they pick up the lesson it won't matter.

The Vancouver Whitecaps played thirty minutes of great soccer yesterday and won. One thing in that sentence is a problem.

Toronto - Vancouver Post-Game: Can This Please Stop Happening?


The Vancouver Whitecaps got killed by the worst team in the world and lost a trophy. They'd better learn their lessons.
