Whitecaps On a Roll!

MLS: Vancouver Whitecaps FC at Orlando SC

Halfway through, Second in the West

Our boys in white have had a great season so far. At the halfway mark the ‘Caps are sitting second in the West with some great stats. The team is tied in first for shutouts and have won as many road games as they did the entire last season. The boys have struggled at home, but are on the road for the next month as BC Place is hosting the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Vancouver are planning to prove themselves on the road this summer and then come home to make BC Place their fortress that it has been for the last few seasons.

Manager Carl Robinson has put together a great team that has proven what they are capable of. Newcomer striker Octavio Riveiro started the season on fire scoring 5 goals in 6 games, and despite a slight mid-season slump, is still playing well and still sits near the top of the scorers race. Keeper David Ousted and a back line featuring the likes of Kendall Waston, Jordan Harvey, Steven Beitashour, and Pa-Modou Kah have battled well to sit in 4th place for goals against so far this season. The midfielders have done very well to help out their team defensively with the likes of Matias Laba, Russell Teibert, and Gershon Koffie, as well as attackingly with Pedro Morales, Mauro Rosales, and Cristian Techera pushing the ball forward. Newcomer striker Octavio Riveiro started the season on fire scoring 5 goals in 6 games, and despite a slight mid-season slump, is still playing well and still sits near the top of the scorers race. But let’s not forget about our strikers like Kekuta Manneh, Darren Mattocks, and Robert Earnshaw who have all helped the team earn points this year.

Let’s hope our boys can put out another great half to finish off the season and give us fans our first home playoff game! We’re right behind you all the way boys.

Whitecaps Start 4th Season In MLS and 40th As A Club

The Whitecaps begin their 4th MLS season in merely a few weeks on March 8th versus the New York Red Bulls at BC Place. The team is looking a little different than last year with the retirement of right back Y.P. Lee, the controversial selling of 2013 lead scorer Camilo Sanvezzo, as well as other players exiting. The Whitecaps have also brought in some new talent from around the league, including Steven Beitashour and Mehdi Ballouchy formerly from San Jose, as well as some exciting new draft picks, such as center back Christian Dean. The changes have not only been in the roster, however, as Carl Robinson replaces Martin Rennie as the new head coach of the team, moving up from his assistant coaching position last year. Players from last year, such as Nigel Reo-Coker and Russell Teibert, are ecstatic that “Robbo” is getting a chance to coach the team this year and have full faith in him. The Whitecaps are sure to start this season off with a bang come the home opener as they are undefeated so far in home opener games.

This season also marks the 40th year of the Vancouver Whitecaps since the club started in 1974. In honour of this, the Whitecaps are releasing a new “Since 1974” away jersey. It is going to be release on Wednesday, February 19th, and will be arriving here at First Touch Soccer with the rest of the 2014 apparel in the coming weeks. Because of this, we will be putting all older Whitecaps FC jerseys and apparel on sale when the new apparel arrives. If you are planning on going to the opening game, or any games for that matter, make sure to stop by to grab some gear to support the team.

Whitecaps on a Roll

For those of you who aren’t aware, Vancouver Whitecaps FC are on a bit of a hot streak right now. The red-hot ‘Caps have earned 13 points in their last 6 games and are coming off four come from behind performances, with three resulting in victories. In these games, the Whitecaps offense is showing their worth with the strike trio of Russel Teibert, Kenny Miller, and Camilo Sanvezzo creating 17 goals in the last six MLS games alone. The trio is starting to gain league-wide notoriety with Tiebert currently leading the league in assists with six, Camilo in fourth in scoring with 8 as well as winning MLS Player of the Week only one week after Miller. The ‘Caps defense is also helping put the ball in the net with Jordan Harvey scoring three in his last four MLS games. Unfortunately for Whitecaps fans, but fortunately for Team Canada, Russel Teibert, as well as keeper Simon Thomas, has been selected for Canada’s Gold Cup roster, and will be unavailable for MLS action for the next few weeks. Vancouver is currently on the road battling D.C. United and Sporting Kansas City this week, before coming home to battle Cascadia Cup rivals Seattle Sounders FC on July 6th.

Show your support for your boys in white by picking up your Official Whitecaps FC apparel here at First Touch Soccer, whether you’re supporting the club from the stadium, the pub, or even your couch. Also tune in to our Facebook page where we will be giving away tons of Whitecaps FC prizes.

Whitecaps’ First Home Final

Hey Whitecaps fans! As you already know, your Vancouver Whitecaps FC are hosting the second leg of the Amway Canadian Championship this Wednesday the 29th against Montreal Impact. This is not an event to miss as the ‘Caps have the chance to bring home their first ever Voyageurs Cup. The Whitecaps held the Impact to a 0-0 draw away at the Stade Saputo in Montreal in the first leg. This gives an advantage to the Vancouver squad that is undefeated with 4 wins and 3 draws in all competitions at home this year. However, defeating Montreal will be no easy task, as they sit in second in the Eastern Conference with Italian superstars Marco DiVaio and Alessandro Nesta leading the team.

If you’re going to the game, or just watching from home, you should support the ‘Caps on their journey to the cup by wearing their colours. We have all the new 2013 Whitecaps gear here in the store, as well as some older styles. We still have our 2011/12 Home Jersey Sale going on, but only a few jerseys left! Stop by the store to see if we have your size in the older jerseys, because they are on for 50% off right now. Hopefully we will see you soon.

Whitecaps’ Season Starts Well With 2 Wins

The Vancouver Whitecaps’ 2013 season has started on a good note with two home wins against Toronto FC and Columbus Crew. The ‘Caps have shown their great potential this season by playing a few great games and showing off their new talent in Erik Hurtado, Kekuta Manneh, and Brad Rusin. New signing Daigo Kobayashi showed the MLS how dangerous he can be with a 40 yard wonder strike against Columbus only six minutes into the game, and a great assist on the ‘Cap’s first goal of the season scored by Gershon Koffie. Vancouver’s biggest signing, Nigel Reo-Coker, has shown his natural leadership by sorting out and calming down the squad. This was especially noticeable in the home opener when he came on at half time and organized the ‘Caps and lead them to a huge first win.

In other Whitecaps news, the brand new 2013 jerseys and apparel has finally arrived and it all looks awesome. The new arrivals include authentic and replica jerseys, tee shirts, and an awesome new track top. Check out the links above, or stop by the store to check them out. Hopefully we will see you in the store soon!

One Month Until ‘Caps Kick Off 2013 Season

The Vancouver Whitecaps’ 2013 season is only one month away! The first kick-off of the year will take place against Canadian rivals Toronto FC on March 2nd at BC Place. The ‘Caps hope to improve upon last year’s impressive season in which they set a new MLS shutout record at 427 minutes, and became the first  Canadian team in MLS history to make the playoffs. Head coach Martin Rennie has already made big strides in the hopes of bringing the Whitecaps closer to the cup by bringing in some new players from around the league, like former Columbus Crew and Real Salt Lake strikers Tom Heinemann and Paolo Jr. Rennie’s biggest signing this off-season however, is Japanese J-League star Daigo Kobayashi. The dynamic midfielder should bring some more offensive flare to the team and has his former teammate and current Whitecap Jun Marques Davidson excited for the reunion. More big news to start the season is the introduction of new Vancouver Whitecaps FC home jerseys. The club has yet to release pictures of the jersey, but if it’s anything like their current kits, the jersey is sure to look great. This new addition means that the current, inaugural Whitecaps jerseys are out of production, and will soon be unavailable. We do have 2011/12 jerseys, as well as other apparel, still available here at First Touch Soccer, but stock levels are starting to run low.

If you want to pick up your own piece of Vancouver Soccer history, call, email, or stop by. We hope to hear from you soon. Go ‘Caps!!!

Sebastien Le Toux to Boost Whitecaps’ Scoring

Vancouver Whitecaps FC released a very exciting announcement on January 31st in the signing of midfielder/striker Sebastien Le Toux. The Whitecaps only traded away allocation money to aquire the Frenchman from the Philedelphia Union, where he spent the last two seasons scoring 27 goals in 66 appearances. Le Toux has won the MLS Fair play award for both the 2010 and 2011 seasons, and was on both the MLS All-Star Team and the MLS Best XI for the 2010 season. He also was the USL First Division’s top scorer in 2007 before he and the Seattle Sounders moved to the MLS. Both Whitecaps Fans and Le Toux are looking forward to his return to the Pacific North West and also the potential pairing with fellow countryman Eric Hassli. He should be a great addition to the team and hopefully will bring us closer to MLS glory.

Welcome to Vancouver, Sebastien Le Toux. We’re happy to have you.

The Whitecaps’ second MLS season is only two months away, and we need to start getting ready.

Last season Vancouver Whitecaps FC ended with a 6-18-10 record, and are looking to improve during their first complete season in the newly finished BC Place. For those who don’t know, the renovated stadium was re-opened September 30th of last year with a brand new retractable roof. The Whitecaps have a 2-2 record in the stadium, outscoring their opponents 6-4, and hope the trend continues in the new season. With new signings, like South Korean legend Young-Pyo Lee, the Whitecaps are definitely off on the right foot so far. Vancouver’s season opens at BC place on March 10th against the newly promoted Montreal Impact. Let’s cheer on our ‘Caps as they march on to their 2012 campaign!

Go ‘Caps go!!!
