Statistics can speak truth and at the same time misguide the masses. They can provide understanding to the greater story and support impressive claims. However, in soccer simply reviewing the leader board at the end of the season does not convey the whole story.

"We're going to take this break and look at it as an opportunity for us to really to kind of refuel the tanks, up the fitness level of our group and see if that can mean something going into the playoffs," Kreis told the Salt Lake Tribune.
SEATTLE The Vancouver Whitecaps came into Seattle on Wednesday with just one win in their last seven matches, winless all-time in the Emerald City, and clinging to the playoffs by a fast-fraying thread.
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 [...]
Gabriel Torres couldn't have been blamed if his game would have suffered this weekend, just days after seeing his Panamanian National Team be eliminated from World Cup qualifying in dramatic fashion.

Photo Credit: WhitecapsFC.com We have been lucky, Vancouver Whitecaps fans.

(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).
With their 3-3 draw with Chile on Friday, Colombia has qualified for the 2014 World Cup. Colombia went down 3-0, but showed determination to come back and earn the draw.
