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!

Agreed. The second half was better.

TBH, I was a bit concerned about the performance against what I saw as an inferior Toronto squad in the 1st half...

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Daigo in his first game seems 100 times better than Robson.
Manneh and Hurtado are speedy and explosive players. They'll have to take better touches and make better decisions overall. But it's their first game and their futures look bright.
YP Lee seemed more involved with the additions of Daigo & Reo Coker. He was solid last season. But I thought the Caps could have used him more.
Reo-Coker seems like he'll be a good addition too. Versatile.

This is all based on one game. And against TFC. But things look encouraging.

I'm not certain of the exact rules, but I'm pretty certain it's not as simple as that. I don't think he can play for Canada right away.

2015 he will be eligible. It is very convoluded. Even moreso if he ends up going to europe in the next couple years.

Watching a feed online, but this ref doesn't seem to want to give Vancouver ANY benifit of the doubt, including a quick whistle there at the end. How close have they been to actual fouls?

Great takeaway and finish by Miller. All started by great pressure from Kofi!

lmao nice pic!!!!

It's a DAM shame we didn't get out of the first half up 3 or 4 zip. But I am certainly happy with what I am seeing so far. Miller was a beast, Kobayashi with an unreal strike, Hurtado was unlucky they called it offside(probably was though), Camillo looked dangerous in the little amount he played. And other than the crew goal, Joe Cannon looked really solid. I'm feeling good about this season so far. Hope they can keep building!

Went to the game, had eyes on Lee the entire time. Probably possessed Vancouver's ball about 33% of the time, with most of the chances coming from his wing. Is he not captain because of the language barrier?

Is every kit in the MLS manufactured by adidas?

A little more variety would be nice. With the exception of colour every kit looks pretty much the same.

Adidas does supply every kit, Scottish. Huge sponsorship deal with MLS. I personally love Adidas gear. I wish Reds had kept their affiliation with the Three Stripes. It's a Classic footy look. Beckenbauer wore it the best for Germany.

Lee is a great player, eh, Bob?

MVP last year, could be again this year.

Great game today. Besides the sh!t goal Cannon allowed, the 'Caps looked great against a decent Columbus side. It is early, but, things are looking up for the franchise.

Style of play has changed from "1960's-English-chase-the-diagonal-long-ball-to-the-corner" to a more modern quick passing, wide attack style. I like it when they play a 4-4-1-1 as opposed to the 4-1-4-1 because Miller can play more up front.

I wasn't too impressed with Mattocks for the second straight game. He is small to be a lone striker and he spends too much time on his ass... kind of like Ryan Kesler... too much flopping about, looking for a foul. He obviously hasn't learned from last season. He hasn't looked a threat to score yet in 2 games. Good sub to bring in Hurtado. His goal was onside, IMO. Too bad the assistant didn't agree!

Rusin looked a decent replacement for Demerit at the back. Big boots to fill, but, Brad did it admirably. Unlucky not to score in the first half with the header. Miller could have a hatty in the first half alone, too. And Reo-Coker missed a sitter from 7 yards, as well. Could have been 6-1 'Caps!

1 negative... Only 18 000 at the Dome. 'Caps should sell out every game. If they keep winning, the bandwagon will fill up pretty quickly, methinks. It would be great to see the upper bowl open like in Seattle!

Next 3 on the road. Go, 'Caps!

I don't think they should open up the upper bowl, not until there's like a Canucks type frenzy here.

Language barrier is one thing, but I think at one point Lee said he didn't want to be the captain. Miller stepped his game up in his first game as captain and if he keeps this up, I have no problem with him being selected.

I was surprised to see Miller wearing the arm band, TBH. I thought it would be Rochat or possibly Lee myself...

Whitecaps look so much better this year. The midfield can really hold onto the ball, and it's quite clear that Kobayashi and Reo-Coker are making a huge difference. Lee has been phenomenal again this year (no surprise, really), and now with more midfield and CB depth, Rochat can play strictly as a left-back where he is the most effective.

I'm also not surprised at all that Miller has the armband with Demerit out. Miller captained the Scottish National Team for years (still does?) and Y.P. Lee didn't want the armband. There's really nobody else deserving of it with the exception of Reo-Coker but he just joined the team so obviously it would be too soon. Reo-Coker captained 3 teams in the BPL (Bolton, West Ham, and Aston Villa), so if he stays for a while, I could see him eventually taking the armband.

Since Lee has played in such amazing form, I can definitely see him playing more years here. He totally wants his kids to settle here in Vancouver, so why not keep playing?

Hot dog man's been great, though. Is he a DP?

This team needs to market itself better, more ads on tv to get the leg up on some of the canuck bandwagoner fan base.
