This week the Whitecaps and Martin Rennie’s Blue and White Army head down to the Rose City to face the Portland Timbers. Let’s forget our recent league disappointments in recent weeks – this is a derby match where passion and pride come first. The Whitecaps are currently in first place in the Cascadia Cup competition ahead of our Seattle rivals on goal differential.
