Poll: Are you Satisfied with the Whitecaps Season?

How do you feel about the Whitecaps season? Are you satisfied with what they accomplished, or were you expecting more?

Bob Frid-USA TODAY Sports

It's no question the Vancouver Whitecaps accomplished a lot this season. They nailed down the second spot in the Western Conference, secured a home playoff match, and had a few of their younger players make some serious strides in their games, like Tim Parker. Kendall Waston established himself as one of the best defenders in the entire league, and David Ousted did the same for himself at the goalkeeping position. Even the skipper was noticed by MLS, as Carl Robinson was nominated for Coach of the Year.

The team was also able to stay afloat in the competitive Western Conference despite suffering a slew of injuries that could have derailed their season.

Still, after accomplishing all of that, the Whitecaps had an extremely disappointing end to 2015. After earning a bye past the knockout round of the playoffs and a date with the Portland Timbers, they didn't manage to score a single goal in either leg, in Portland or in Vancouver.

Instead, the 'Caps watched their Cascadia rivals score in their own house, putting them through to the next round, and sending a sell-out crowd at BC Place home disappointed.

For a club that was supposed to have depth up front, it was tough to see, although as mentioned before, they did have to contend with a ridiculous amount of injuries. Another sore spot on the year was the Champions League, as the club went 1-2-1 in their first ever go around in the tournament, and saw Seattle lock up top spot in their group.

So, how do you look at the season? Are you impressed the Whitecaps made it further in the post-season, that they saw some of their personnel improve? Or were you expecting more from a club that was supposed to be dripping with talent and depth this season? Let us know in the comments, and vote in the poll.
