Martin Rennie’s Carolina Railhawks crashed out of NASL Championship contention at the weekend in pretty dramatic fashion, eventually losing an incident packed second leg semi-final tie on penalties.
The defeat dashed Rennie’s hopes of coming to the Whitecaps with a Championship under his belt.
In fact, the 36 year old Scot will be coming to Vancouver with less than confidence boosting momentum, following a poor run of form for his Railhawks side recently.
He’ll fit in just nicely here then!
Although Rennie won’t take the helms at the Whitecaps until after the regular season is done and dusted, many are counting down the days till he takes over.
A key reason for that being that it will also spell the end of Tom Soehn’s reign as manager. Can’t come soon enough as far as we’re concerned.
One more game in “charge” for Soehn and as we look forward to Saturday’s match against Colorado Rapids, AFTN will be having a special #CountdownToRennie week, with various articles and humourous jibes to send Tommy packing.
Time to return to our fanzine roots, so check back every day for something new.
In the meantime, let’s try and get the hashtag #CountdownToRennie trending on Twitter.
The Renniesance will soon be upon us.
