Welcome back everyone.
If we weren’t already, we are now officially in the business end of the MLS season. With eleven matches to go, the margins grow smaller by the day, so Vancouver will have to maximize their stretch run as they currently sit four points out of the last playoff place in the West.
This Friday, the Caps have a big chance to take a step in the right direction against Houston. The Dynamo are directly below the Whitecaps in the Western Conference standings, two points back and level on matches played. Equally for Vancouver, it is an opportunity to correct their recent home form, which has gone from a strength to a frailty in recent MLS fixtures.
