StartingXI 1.) What did it mean to you to be named SFU Athlete of the Year for 2012? "It was an incredible feeling. It is such an honour to receive an award of that distinction, especially with so many deserving candidates. It also acts as a testament to the quality of the team, as I [...]

Photo credit: TheSoccerObserver.com So it has been over a week and the Whitecaps have yet to announce a head coach. The scandal! As all of us were expecting Frank Yallop to be introduced as the heir to the Vancouver soccer helm, the Chicago Fire snuck in, from what seems out of nowhere, and scooped up [.

Roundtable: Was Letting Go Of Rennie The Right Move?

WhitecapsXI at related • 0 views
Jorge Mendoza: "When asked to describe Martin Rennie's tenure as the Head Coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps, I think a fair assessment would be "positive." He took on a team that was the worst in the league in 2011 and transformed into a team that is expected to make the playoffs. Unfortunately for Rennie the [.

Photo Credit: WhitecapsFC.com We have been lucky, Vancouver Whitecaps fans. Yes, given that the boys in Blue and White have missed the playoffs in two if their last three years in MLS, I know that my assertion might seem ridiculous. No, I am not talking about the actual collective results achieved. That is a topic [.

I'll be honest with you. When I was thinking about possible topics for my first Whitecaps XI article, the Blue and White were coming off a tough road game in Portland. The performance of two players stood out to me. The first one was Kekuta Manneh due to the quiet night that the young player [...]

Costly Mistakes At The Wrong Time

WhitecapsXI at related • 0 views
Yes, sometimes it happens Whitecaps FC fans. Mistakes happen. Costly mistakes happen. On Saturday afternoon the Whitecaps were victims of their own mistakes. Mistakes that could have been avoided and that would have kept their playoffs hopes alive. A loss with such devastating consequences makes it hard not to look for those who we feel [.

WhitecapsXI at related • 0 views
(Author's Note: Owing to the circumstances, this article will serve as a joint recap and preview). Season-high record setting and a Cascadia Cup victory were not enough to keep the train on track, as Vancouver Whitecaps FC (12W-12L-9D) watched the playoffs slip further away Saturday in a 3-2 loss to fifth-place Colorado Rapids (14W-10L-9D).

This is a shorter preview than normal, owing to the week-long gap between matches and the lack of significant news, the Cascadia Cup win notwithstanding. I could talk at length about the Cup, but that's an entire article-worthy topic in and of itself, which I may or may not write about at a later time.

Shine Bright Like A Diamond

No, dear reader, this column did not suddenly morph from football to music. I will not dissect the lyrics of the catchy pop song by Rihanna. Instead, I will examine the Whitecaps late resurgence in form and how this may or may not be the result of a change in formation that now sees them [...]

Stay Classy Willy

Here's the thing. I will be honest. I am very conflicted on this topic and I may not make a lot of sense. However, it is something that has been burning on my mind and I feel that it needs to be discussed. So, with that fair warning, here we go. Last weekend, the Vancouver [...]
