Remember when Vancouver Whitecaps were being lauded for their excellent road record? That seems so long ago now. Saturday’s 1-0 loss in Minnesota was the third straight away defeat for the ‘Caps. This one against an already undermanned team that played 40 minutes of the second half with ten men. Definitely a Cinco de Mayo to forget.
We look back at the high and lows from the match, talk line-ups and formations, bring you our latest player rankings, and hear from both head coaches, Minnesota’s Adrian Heath and Vancouver’s Carl Robinson.
Where now for the Whitecaps? Did the RSL win last week just paper over the cracks or should we just be content that the team is currently sitting in third spot?
We also see how the weekend played out for the MLS western teams, discuss the latest big Canadian Premier League news and other headlines, play another round of Do You Know Who I Am? and Half Man Half Biscuit return for our Wavelength section.
