Poll: Which veteran Whitecap would you bring back for 2016?

New, 32 comments

The Vancouver Whitecaps' season is still (hopefully) far from over, but looking ahead to 2016, which of the 30-something veterans would you like Carl Robinson to bring back for another year?

Pa Modou Kah (C) and Mauro Rosales (R) are two of the 30-something Whitecaps.  Would you bring either of them back for 2016?

With an average age of just twenty-four and a half years old, the Vancouver Whitecaps have one of the youngest rosters in Major League Soccer.  In fact, the 'Caps have only six players on their MLS roster who are over the age of thirty, and if you exclude Pa Modou Kah, Robert Earnshaw, Mauro Rosales and even David Ousted, then the average age of the MLS squad drops to just a hair over twenty-three years old.

All teams needs a good mix of young talent and experienced veterans to balance their roster.  Assuming you could take Carl Robinson's job as Whitecaps manager for a day, which of the 30-something players would you bring back for 2016?  Ousted, who has been in fantastic form for most of the season, is a given, as is Pedro Morales (age 30), who signed a new multi-year deal with the club this past summer.  This leaves a small group of players including Jordan Harvey, Earnshaw, Kah and Rosales, who all fall into the 30-plus category.

So, who's it going to be?  You can have your say by voting in the poll, or by leaving a comment in the section below.
