Wesley Charles Training With The Whitecaps

The Province reported that Wes Charles is back training with the Whitecaps.  The article also revealed that poor Wesley lost a child during the season, which led, understandably, to a bout of depression.   Charles subsequently fought with his own teammate Charles Gbeke during a home match and took a swing at fellow defender Jeff Parke during training.  He was then let go by the club.   He was not the same this year and now it is clear why.  His behaviour all makes sense now. He said that he now wants the fans to know what had happened.

We fans loved Wesley Charles, and I was sad to see him let go.  I think it is a good thing that he has chosen to share his loss with us. It is too bad we did not know sooner so we could have given him all of our support at the time.  In any event, all we can do now is say to Wesley how sorry we are for the loss of his child.

I credit Wesley Charles with being one of the key reasons why we won the Championship in 2008.  His play was fantastic at the back and he was certainly one of the team leaders.  I remember celebrating with him in the Southside after the final whistle blew to give us the championship over Puerto Rico.  Wesley Charles brought us a lot of joy, so let’s return the favour, send him our love, and support him in his attempt to recover from a terrible loss.   I am hoping Wesley can work his way back to fitness and make the team.

There’s only one Wesley Charles!
