Seattle Sounders FC and 107.7 The End have announced that the station will broadcast two Sounders matches — one against LA Galaxy and the other versus Real Salt Lake.
It has been a while – eight games! – but the Vancouver Whitecaps FC finally picked up another win and are right back in the thick of the playoff race.
To say things haven’t gone well for Vancouver Whitecaps FC is a bit of an understatement. The ‘Caps have just one win over their last 11 Major League Soccer matches and are winless in eight. In their last seven games, they have scored just one goal.
Unlike Canada's women`s team, the attitude towards the men`s squad has often been met with sarcasm and eye rolling.
With Olympic coverage and the Tragically Hip concert broadcast, I wouldn’t blame you if you missed the Vancouver Whitecaps FC match last Saturday night.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC have zero wins in their last three matches and have won just two Major League Soccer matches since May 22. Let’s forget about that for a week and take this opportunity to praise the Canadian women’s soccer team.
I’ve been critical recently about Vancouver Whitecaps FC — whether it’s been their goal scoring, defending, or the inability of their youngsters to progress.
Between Pokémon Go, the Pride Parade, and Celebration of Light, there were enough distractions to avoid Vancouver Whitecaps FC’s sad result on the weekend against FC Dallas down in Texas.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC have put together a decent July — losing once through five Major League Soccer matches.
Other than a professional soccer team based in Vancouver, Canada and playing in Major League Soccer, who exactly are Vancouver Whitecaps FC?
I wrote recently about how a single volunteer can inspire a child to get interested in sports — like my daughter’s involvement with soccer.
It’s not often that my six-year-old daughter enjoys the same things I do. I like Star Wars, she likes princesses – unfortunately not the Leia kind – and for the 77 months she’s been alive, liking soccer has been on her radar for approximately four of those months.
Euro 2016 has been a tournament of agonizing twists and turns. Some of the traditional teams have failed to impress — several even failed to qualify (think Netherlands or Bosnia and Herzegovina or Greece, three of UEFA’s top teams).
Another week has gone by with a few more train rides, matches, and pints of beer and glasses of wine for this weary traveller.
Euro 2016 in France is nearly a week old and it has been quite an experience so far.
It was another disappointing result for Vancouver Whitecaps FC as they lost 2-0 in their first leg Voyageurs Cup semi- final match against Ottawa Fury FC.
I’m having a hard time continuing to get excited about Vancouver Whitecaps FC and the thrill of the Major League Soccer season this year. Mostly I’m just left feeling unsatisfied.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC are on a roller coaster — and those lows are so depressing that soccer fans should instead look forward to a few other events to help forget about the ‘Caps.
Vancouver Whitecaps FC had a stellar week. It wasn’t perfect, considering Masato Kudo has been knocked out of commission, but overall, it was pretty darn good.
