Saturday, August 12: 1-0 Loss

The Vancouver Whitecaps fall to New England Revolution in the last game of their road trip. Bringing back 4 points over the 3 game trip, they head into Pride night, which is a breath of fresh air. 

Other than the game loss, the team suffers a player loss with Matias Laba being out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. 

The Whitecaps are a team on the cusp of making the playoffs. Though, I can tell you that their hot and cold mentality will not cut it when teams see the playoffs in sight. 

They played with the most heart against New York City FC. Over the summer they have had some encouraging wins, like the 4-0 victory over FC Dallas. The road trip was ended with a mediocre show in a loss to the Revolution. What we need now is consistency. 

We need Fredy Montero to make the best of the chances he is given. We need to play with the fire and heart we have seen shine through on rare occasions. We need the backs to make runs, we need to see the field and we need them to want it. 

Hopefully our hometown crowd can add a little fuel to the fire. Wouldn’t it be great to see #raincity in the playoffs. 

Welcome again to Aly Ghazal, Aaron Maund, and Stefan Marinovic. 

#riseupraincity Glad the smoke from wildfires is gone and glad that you are coming home.
