The Infernal Midfield: A Statistical Look at How the Vancouver Whitecaps Stack up

It almost feels cliche to bemoan the Vancouver Whitecaps’ lack of midfield quality at this stage. But it continues to be a really big problem so we have no real choice but to keep talking about it.

People often complain, not entirely unfairly, that when we do charts that compare Whitecaps players to each other it isn’t particularly meaningful because the Whitecaps are a bad team.
