re: Vancouver Whitecaps FC



VANCOUVER, BC - Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced today the acquisition of Tiago Ulisses - pending receipt of his Visa. Per Major League Soccer and club policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“Tiago is a young and promising holding midfielder. He is strong on the ball and a solid tackler,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie. “The addition of Tiago offers us more depth in midfield and a player that we feel will do well in Major League Soccer.”

Whitecaps FC midfielder Tiago Ulisses
- Fifteen league appearances for Botafogo Futebol Clube in the 2012 Brazilian Série A1
- Scored one goal in 11 appearances for Esporte Clube Noroeste in the 2011 Brazilian Série A2

Vancouver's Richards to join English side Burnley in 2013


Vancouver Whitecaps midfielder Dane Richards will join English Championship outfit Burnley FC at the end of the 2012 season, the club announced Sunday morning.

Richards scores with superb curler

Richards, a Jamaican international, was recently acquired by Vancouver from New York in a trade for Sebastien Le Toux and allocation money, but will now have a chance to test his luck across the ocean once his contract is up.

Knighton to get his chance between pipes for Vancouver

Whitecaps FC goalkeeper set to make third straight start


It looks like Brad Knighton will be the man minding the goal for Vancouver Whitecaps FC this Sunday.

The Virginia native will keep his place between the pipes following solid outings during Vancouver's last two matches.

All three goals he’s conceded in those two defeats have been nigh unstoppable. In the first of those two matches, Knighton was beat by a rifled long-range shot from Juninho before David Beckham executed one of his signature free kicks late in the match to round out the 2-0 LA Galaxy win.

Hope Shift

'Caps end losing streak, but cough up points in draw vs. Rapids



VANCOUVER, B.C. – A late equalizer from substitute Jamie Smith meant the Colorado Rapids played the Vancouver Whitecaps to a 2-2 draw in front of 18,992 at BC Place Sunday evening.

Second half goals from Alain Rochat and Kenny Miller looked as if they’d be enough to secure the ‘Caps a win until Smith’s 86th-minute effort, in which he latched onto a miscue from Rochat and Lee Young-Pyo before curling an effort past Brad Knighton.

Recap:
'Caps snap winless run with 4-0 thrashing of Chivas



VANCOUVER, B.C. — The Vancouver Whitecaps ended a seven-game winless streak Wednesday night at BC Place, thrashing Chivas USA 4-0 through goals from Gershon Koffie, Dane Richards, Camilo and Barry Robson.

Koffie got things going only 11 minutes in, smashing a left-footed effort past Dan Kennedy from the edge of the box into the bottom left corner. Kenny Miller set the play up, holding the ball up before passing it back for the Ghanaian to make his late run from midfield.

Where's The Spark?

'Caps book playoff spot but something is missing in Vancouver


VANCOUVER, B.C. – It was the biggest match of the season for the Vancouver Whitecaps, maybe the biggest in the franchise's MLS history up until this point, and they fell flat. The Caps fell to the Portland Timbers, 1-0, damanging their playoff chances.

A win would've secured the first postseason berth for a Canadian MLS club. Instead, they are forced to watch the out-of-town scores, which broke their way when FC Dallas fell to Seattle later in the night, clinching their 5th-place finish in the Western Conference and the #5 seed in the playoffs.

Playing at home in front of a sold out crowd of 21,000 at BC Place against the second-worst team in the Western Conference – a team that had yet to pick up a win on the road – the ‘Caps never really seemed to get going.

“We’ve got ourselves right up for this game tonight with a chance to go and win the game and confirm our playoff spot, and for some reason we never started at all tonight,” Kenny Miller told reporters following the game. “There wasn’t too many chances for us – even at 1-0 down you think you’d be throwing everything at them, but there just seemed to be something missing.”

VWFC add pace
Manneh selected 4th and Hurtado selected 5th



When it comes to finding players, there is one thing that you can never coach or develop. That my friends, would be speed. You either have it or you don’t.

So with the fourth and fifth picks in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft, Martin Rennie and his staff went with Kekuta Manneh and Erik Hurtado. And what did the ‘Caps acquire with these two youngsters? Speed.

And that is exactly what we could use.
