Whitecaps Show New Spirit In Austin

June 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!
