The Vancouver Whitecaps 2019 Major League Soccer season is over, so it is time for the writers here at EightySix Forever to look back, as well as look forward. This is the first in a five-part series where we review the 2019 season, grade Marc Dos Santos Year 1, exame potential player transactions this offseason, project 2020, and make predictions about how next season will start. Today, we start with a look back at 2019.
By pretty much every metric, 2019 was a failure (don’t worry, that second statistics article is STILL coming!). The Whitecaps would have been the worst team in MLS on most metrics if it were not for Cincinnati FC’s expansion season failure.
