Nice. I was gonna get season tickets, but then realized I buy single tickets for the same price through my dad's BCMA program...It's tough to make all the games, and tickets are hard to sell when you can't make them.

I'll be at the game and I love that we have Major League Soccer in this city. It's a great atmosphere and a lot of fun to take people to games. That said, the Whitecaps had a nightmare offseason. I am a TFC fan so I might be a bit biased.

The Whitecaps roster is studded with questions. Let's see how it goes.

I'll also be in Seattle for the TFC-Sounders opener next week.

Eh, I wouldn't call it a nightmare at all....Sure, they lost Camilo in the most embarrassing way possible, but I still think they made some decent moves, and I don't think we'll miss him nearly as much as most people might think....We've got a lot of young dudes that are ready to step up IMO.

75 minutes into the season and I'd say we're off to a great start. Should be a good year if we can keep everybody healthy.

Any one else fortunate enough to sit next to the biker gang in 202? We went with a large group but our tickets were split up and all around us were Italian guys in club sweaters and I'm guessing their younger members in denim jackets with patches lol..felt uneasy at times

Sunday's game against Chivas should be interesting. Coaches around the league are probably watching film from the NY game and trying to figure out the midfield. Chivas doesn't play much D, but they have a good midfield with Rosales and Torres. Morales may start, so I'm looking forward to seeing him play the majority of the game.

I have big expectations from Manneh this year too...I feel he should be starting over Mattocks tbh....Hopefully his playing time increases as the season progresses. Looking forward to the game this Sunday.

The club should build up Mattocks just enough so that they can trade or sell him to another team. Mattocks has pace, but his football sense is limited and he can't seem to finish with the regularity that a striker needs.

Manneh has far more potential than Mattocks. Pace, football sense, and a willingness to learn. He's confident, but not in an arrogant way like Mattocks.

Manneh is more of a winger. Mattocks is seen as our go to striker once Miller leaves.

mattocks out, Miller in. They pushed Miller up when mattocks went off because Miller was playing the #9 attacking mid role.

I would personally take Mattocks out, put Manneh up front, and maybe take Laba out and put Morales in for him.

Manneh needs more pro playing time and I don't think his game right now suits him as a lone striker.

Also Robinson is sticking with his 4231 and not switching it up every game like Rennie did last year (that was a mistake) plus laba allows reo Coker to push up and get involved, which worked on the morales goal.

It'll be interesting to see later on when the caps go on a goalless drought and how they adjust.

So happy to know Robinson has a solid game plan formation wise... Seems like Rennie had no idea what he was doing or just fell back to his "LOL RAILHAWKS" plan.

I think Laba and Reo C. in that defensive midfield role is going to be awesome, but it makes me worried that Koffie could get pushed out

Laba> Koffie IMO. Reo C.'s replacement when he leaves for more money next season. On the bright side, we have a really good sub who can drop right in and do work.

Rennie and his varying formations each week was infuriating to watch because players wouldn't be able to get comfortable in a system. Add the lack of a midfield spark and it's a recipe for failure. The only reason we even had a sniff of the playoffs last year was because of Camilo.
