It’s the return of Off The Pitch!
Hey y’all. Was away on vacation for a bit. Went to the beach. Great! Watched a bunch of sawker though, and the podcast is back! LOADS of Whitecaps FC chat.
Oh my. What’s up with this squadron? Now 7th place in the MLS Western Conference, chasing a playoff spot with ten matches to go. The numbers are ugly:
1 win in their last 7 games
2 wins in their last 11
39 goals against in 24 games
2 or more goals conceded in 13 of those 24 games
Have picked up just 20 of a possible 36 points from their home matches (12 GP: 5 W, 5 D, 2 L)
So many questions for this Whitecaps side:
Can they turn it around?
Can (DP) Pedro Morales step up?
How bad is this midfield?
Where’s the urgency?!
A disgusting number of things to go through. Have I mentioned we’re on iTunes now?!
Also, I talk MLS expansion, a quick look at the MLS scoreboard, International Champions Cup, Leicester City, the UEFA coefficient and some Olympic SAWKER!
So much sawkering.
