Whitecaps Show New Spirit In AustinJune 14, 2010 at 2:16 am | Posted in Whitecaps Season 2010 | 2 Comments
After all of the disgrace with the new logo and the uniform this week, at least I can console myself with the fact that we still have a team that is playing in colours and with a logo which respects our past, and in particular the uniform of our 1979 heroes.
The Whitecaps came from behind last night to beat the league-leading Austin Aztex 2-1. Yes, we actually SCORED goals. Marcus Haber, our West Brom bound striker, actually scored a goal off of a Nash corner. He then layed a goal on for Nizar Khalfan. Well done Marcus, glad to have you back! Prior to this game Haber had only scored one goal from a penalty kick.
I have to say I am glad the team appears to be playing with some new found spirit, which has also been lacking thus far. The win in Austin is a big win, and could signal the unleashing of the Whitecaps true footballing power. This is only the third time this season the Whitecaps have scored more than one goal in a game. Lets hope they continue in this vein; it has been pretty thin gruel in footballing terms at Swangard this season.
I have faith that Teitur has recently found a way to get his players to adopt his philosophy of attacking football. We just may see a flood of more goals if we can score two against such a strong squad as Austin. Well done Whitecaps!
