    The sort of game where we either come out flat in the second half and they rev up to thump our slow defence or we let them in with a soft one at the end and give up points.

    Finishing has been poor - lots of side footed attempts to slot home that have come off slow.

    You have no fucking clue what you are talking you right wing jerk. Do you really think the MLS and the NBA would supporting a Marxist organization?

    Could play the academy Friday night and I think we could beat the Caps 2-0.

    I hope they were. There is nothing remotely Marxist about supporting Black Lives Matter. Soccer is inclusive and is the worlds sport, and we absolutely should be speaking out against racism. And if BLM talks about class differences or other Marxist analysis, perhaps they have a point.

    Marc dos Santos is definitely getting fired in the near future. This Whitecaps team sucks, but they don't even look like they care.

    Sheer dominance all over the pitch. That was an absolute pleasure to watch.

    Excellent performance. Fluid, efficient, calm and in control. Full credit to Vanney. Not sure Altidore fits the style too well though. Looking forward to seeing Akinola fit.

    Didn't see the game, just the highlights, but even from that it seemed quite clear Vancouver were just strolling around the pitch most of the game.

    With Jozy on the field, Poz had noone to play the ball through to. Jozy was slow, making bno runs, and rarely where a centre forward should be. As soon as Mullins came on, Poz had someone ahead of him to pass to.
    Jozy is and will always be a legend for us. But if he's always injured or not fit...we would have won by 6 with Akinola on the field tonight.
    I'm really worried about our DP.
    Otherwise we looked good...but difficult to tell with such poor Caps team.
    PS: Fair enough to have views about BLM, but this is not the forum for it!!

    Was great to see, controlled the ball all night and Pablo had some really beauties.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    Yeah I was going to say the same. Nice to see Piatti have a game though.

    Nice to see Piatti was a good signing.

    Bad game by Altidore, it's like he has zero interest/motivation. Again, why this man is being paid that many millions per year? I really hope we'll have a new DP instead of him when his contract expires.

    As more posters said, we should not draw any important conclusions regarding the whole TFC after this match, because Whitecaps is a bad team and played like a very bad team.
    Not sure if they would win CPL with this kind of performance.

    The night for me is summed up in one play they showed on video at the half.

    Adnan takes the ball up and passes to Cavalini who can't get to it but presses - Adnan is the only other one who goes up, looks around, sees nobody else with him and literally waves his hand saying something like "Forget this" in disgust and retreats.

    Black lives matter is a communist organization, period. Itís not an ďopinionĒ itís simply a statement of fact. itís written all over their website. This is known now. Itís very ignorant for them to try to play this off as no big deal. Didnít watch the game as soon I saw it, wonít watch another game this year, not purchasing season tickets again.

    I agree with everyone else on here that it is hard to rate TFC's performance with Caps being so bad but it was a good game for TFC to build their confidence with passing and game fitness. The only issue the whole game I thought was Altidore like some have said. Almost looked like he didn't know where to play and often times was out wide instead of where you would expect a centre forward to be. Seemed a little slow to react at times too. Unless he can get himself back into game shape (and beast mode) regularly like he has in the past we really need to move on and pick up another DP that is more dynamic to combine with the other guys at the speed they are playing. Altidore was a step behind in the game speed last night it seemed to me. Maybe just getting back to fitness thing but if the rest of the team has been able to get back to fitness there is no reason he shouldn't be as well. He is getting paid a lot so we expect a lot.

    Altidore is extended until the end of 2022. With his high salary, I don't see any other club acquiring him from us on a transfer (only perhaps a Qatari/Chinese/Saudi/etc club, but I doubt he would he be willing to take that). Perhaps, a US club might trade for him, but he could also have a NTC.

    Was a much better result and the team played well compared to the last game of the tournament. OG didn't look nearly as tired with those heavy legs and Bradley did alright too. Someone mentioned above (lil'John) about Jozy being out of position and a few times he was right beside poz at half when he should have been pressing higher up the field. One time I noticed the ball outside wide and Jozy wasn't even in the 18 waiting for the cross...the ball comes over and they let it go to him outside the 18 and he just watched as it went by him. With the exception of when he kept the ball in and Pablo scored the 2nd goal, i wasn't all that impressed with his performance. I am also looking forward to see Ayo out there again.

    Not that they were pressing much but against a team that is going to properly do a high press, we are going to have to move the ball quicker and cleaner. will be interesting to see what happens moving forward. Glad we got the win and looking forward to Friday night's game! COYR

    Having watched Dos Santos coach for years in Ottawa, I know he's better than this. However, he can only work with what he has been given compared to his peers and this year is pretty much a write-off for most clubs. I could see the Whitecaps FO not spending another dime on the club until next year when the financial outlook is a little clearer.

    Not to drag out politics where it doesn't need to be but the senior leadership of BLM do in fact claim to be Marxist and they chose the Marxist fist (minus the red star) for their logo on purpose. Some people will always have a problem with Marxism/Communism and that doesn't reflect on racist values or undermine the idea of racial equality. It can simply mean they hate communism and that's fair. I have a lot of friends from former USSR regions and I can tell you they automatically hate anything to do with Communism and Marxism no matter what it is or who it's tied into.

    Altidore is an emotional player that has always risen to the occasion for us in big games. I am not sure he'll be able to be at his best playing in empty stadiums. He's just one of those guys that feeds off the energy of the crowd.

    I think the nuance here is we have an organization with a name that is the same as a slogan / general rallying cry for people who want to see improvements in how how the police and others in society treat people of colour. Personally when I hear ďBlack Lives MatterĒ Iím not thinking of the organization but rather people trying to fight for equal rights, which Iím supportive of. In no way would I support someone promoting communism. Anyway, my $0.02...

    Back to the game... good performance but I noticed Vancouverís mediocre attempts at a press did cause slight problems on occasion. I think this is something we will have to tighten up in more competitive games if we want to play in this style. But this was a good tune-up match to figure out such things.

    Hello all, we will end this BLM discussion. This is a Game thread, however please see below.

    This was a joint project with the other groups and TFC to support our fellow TFC team members, maybe you are not aware our very own Justin Morrow is leading this player coalition. He and many others from the team have reached out to us and thanked us for this banner which was painted maybe 2-3 months ago before the team left for Orlando and displayed to them back then.

    FO asked us over the weekend if we wanted to use it again during the games and we (all the groups) gave them the thumbs up to do so.
    Road Games:
    2013, 2014, 2015 - Montreal; 2016 - Montreal (Leg 1 Conference Final); 2017 - NYRB (Leg 1 Eastern Semi), Columbus (Leg 1 Eastern Finals); 2019 - Seattle (MLS Finals)
