Will Colorado play it strongest team against the Whitecaps?October 21, 2011 at 6:29 pm | Posted in Whitecaps Season 2011 | 4 Comments
I cannot believe the Whitecaps first season in Major League Soccer will be over after tomorrow’s match. It seems only yesterday that I was counting down the days to the first match with TFC. I am looking forward to seeing the MLS champions Colorado tomorrow, but what squad will they play, given that they have already made the playoffs? What is at stake is the wild card playoff games are single game eliminators played at the home ground of the teams with he best points total. Houston is level on points with Colorado, though below Colorado in goal difference. If Houston beats or ties LA with us beating Colorado this would mean Houston would steal a home elimination game from Colorado. I hope this means Colorado will start their strongest team against us so we have a proper match.
What’s in it for the Whitecaps? If they win they will avoid the embarrassment of being the worst team in MLS, a title that currently is owned by the New England Revolution. Sure, its small pickings, but at least we have some reason to cheer the team on other than our love of the team!
