Rumour is Miller is the next guy to go out the door. Also the team is going after more Canadian talent starting with Friend playing in Europe. There is no chance that the team starts with the season without adding a talented midfielder(s) Team seems to be addressing the pressing issues: speed, midfield, and releasing players who are not a fit. Should be an exciting year!

MATTOCKS (MILLER), MANNEH (HURTADO)
HARVEY (TEIBERT), KOFFIE (DAVIDSON/ALDERSON), WATSON (PAULO JR), SALGADO (CAMILO)
ROCHAT (FRESENGA), DEMERIT(MITCHELL), O'BRIEN (RUSIN), LEE (KLAZURA)
KNIGHTON (CANNON)

Hopefully still an upgrade on Harvey via acquisition or camp surprise and a starting midfielder displacing Watson as a starter.

He seems like a dynamic and creative player, who hopefully will be able to provide better service to Miller and Mattocks. I read also that he is able to play wide, so that's the a plus since Dane Richards is gone, although that kind of speed will be hard to replace. It seems Kobayashi has a few tricks up his sleeve and can shoot from distance.

Hope he pans out!

Preseason began yesterday with a 4-1 victory over the New England Revolution. Mattocks looked extremely good with tallying a hattrick in under 30 minutes of play. Camilo and Miller also created many offensive chances. Hopefully a precursor to a good season for the Caps.

Whitecaps sign Nigel Reo-Coker, really like the pickup he should be awesome in the midfield for us

The 28-year-old has shunned options in England and across Europe to finalise a move to America.

Reo-Coker,Posted Image whose wife is American, has opted to make the move across the Atlantic and is due to fly to Canada on Thursday.
The new MLS season kicks off next month so Reo-Coker will be signed in time to make his debut against rivals Toronto on March 2nd.

"I am delighted, it will be a new experience and I can't wait," Reo-Coker told Sky Sports ahead of flying to Vancouver.

yea, guy captained for West Ham and played for Aston Villa as well. I heard rumours of him having an attitude problem though, so it'll be interesting to see how Rennie handles him.

Also captained Wimbledon, Villa and England U-21.

He's already played for 5 clubs at 28, 'Caps will be his 6th, and they are kind of heading in the wrong direction... Wimbledon, West Ham, Villa, Bolton, Ipswich (Championship), 'Caps. Must be a reason...

Hope he's a better signing than Jarju and Robson!

One more week until season opener v. TFC! Wonder if Reo-Coker will play where Robson was or out wide right. He can also play RB but I don't see him beating Lee out for that spot. "The M&M Strikeforce" could be interesting to watch, too.

Can't wait!

A win is a win, but, I was expecting a little more than 1-0 against the worst team in MLS. The first half was garbage by both teams. Mattocks didn't look a threat at all today and young Manneh is freakin' fast, but, that was all, today. Reo-Coker coming on in the second half and a switch in formation to 4-4-2 were the differences. The 'Caps looked way better in the 2nd half and were unlucky not to win by more. Sweet goal by New-Canadian Gershon Koffie! Miller looked decent today, too. I hope Demerit isn't out long term. He is a stud.

3 points is 3 points.

Still some kinks to be worked out but I thought as the game progressed, the Whitecaps got better. The goal was a thing of beauty....great setup and great finish. So happy the season has finally begun!
