    Vancouver Whitecaps offseason 2018-2019

    Missed the playoffs by a point. Going by memory but i think 2nd and 3rd in the west in the past couple years so lets not get crazy. Sounds like we signed a pretty good winger from La Liga today? I also like the direction on some of the rumours we've seen. Hopefully they hit I dont think there needs to be some kinda mandate to do people favours. I just felt the Robbo way of doing things was a waist of resources. But clearly the thought was he was trying to put resources in to his buddies pockets

    From everything ive heard from MDS i highly doubt what the CPL might be doing is affecting his decision making. I think it reflects a different approach to building a roster than Robbo had. Biggest example of that was what MDs did with the goaltender spot. He just straight up said he wont burn an import spot and cap space on the goaltender position. He probably wont do the same with a 4th choice midfielder

    Vancouver Whitecaps offseason 2018-2019

    11 Canadians signed to the Whitecaps. Im happy to see Whitecaps giving Canadians a chance when the trend accross the league is in the other direction when it comes to domestic players. We need now some top end talent to support them because at the end of the day its all about winning. But at least all things being equal if young players are going to be given a chance at least theyre Canadians and not Americans

    I dont think they need a playoff but a showcase game would be great to draw in media and casual fans

    Typically Robbo would move him from one wing to the other thru the course of the game

    General Discussion on CMNT

    I think its too rigid. I prefer to move players around a bit to get the best 11 in the field. But if you want to set up like a table hockey team then yah thats about right

    Is it true that CPL scouts are at the combine?

    TOKYO 2020

    I know a little young but if he develops well over the next couple months, it would be interesting to see that super tall Okello kid next to Fraser in that lineup I also think Tabla moved more infield as an attacking midfielder is an option

    Canadian Nationalization Countdown

    I think his family did the stopover in US for a few years before making their way to Canada and he was born there. I think i also read on the Caps site that he doesnt have Canadian citizenship but is working on it

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    In life you totally can make things up with no data. For instance if i look outside in the middle of the summer and i see people sweating, taking their shirts off, wearing hats and sunglasses, putting on sun lotion and i declare its fukn hot without knowing the temperature. I might be correct without knowing any data. I think a soccer forum for fun is a perfectly acceptable place to say things without data. If its not maybe i should just get off this spinning soccer ball called earth

    Cyle Larin

    Ive expected Larin to return to the MLS and here's why. When i watched that video of Atiba thriving in Turkey it was really great. But thats not for everyone, no disrespect but Larin seems a different person. Atiba is very outgoing, cultured, has a family. Larin seems shy and reserved. I wouldn't be surprised if there is a cutlure shock both on and off the field. I think TFC would be best for him or maybe England. As a Caps fan im a little unsure if i would want him coming to Van. Just me spitballing from 10000 miles

    Lots of Canadian insecurity bubbling up here. Bayern will sign players and Davies will be a star

    Davies was not developed by the MLS, he was developed by the Whitecaps
