    THE SOUTHSIDERS ARE JOINED BY TWO NEW SUPPORTER GROUPS

    La 12 Vancouver



    Fortunately, the Whitecaps have a group of fans that rain or shine go to the stadium carrying more equipment than a Pink Floyd roadie in the late 80's. Yes sir, in a Football afternoon, close to the stadium you will see a line of devoted guys carrying big drums, flags, banners, small drums, güiros, trumpets and many other fine articles to the section 222 of the Empire Stadium. That is the section of “La 12 Vancouver”

    The North Gate Ultras are a european-style supporters group of the Vancouver Whitecaps F.C in the MLS.

    DeMerit sees bright future for 'Caps after debut season
    Vancouver skipper disappointed, but reflects on progress made


    VANCOUVER, B.C. – Disappointing season, exciting future. Those were Jay DeMerit’s sentiments following the Vancouver Whitecaps final match of their first Major League Soccer season.

    “It was a frustrating year, there’s no hiding that fact,” DeMerit told MLSsoccer.com after Saturday’s finale. “But the fans that stayed back, and waited for us to come and praise them, shows us what we have here, and that’s a bright future.”

    DeMerit explains that although the future is bright, he had hoped for a little more success in the side’s inaugural campaign.

    Whitecaps clear the deck for incoming head coach Martin Rennie as pair of assistants given walking papers


    Colin Miller was "gutted" but not surprised.

    The affable Vancouver Whitecaps assistant coach was fired Wednesday - along with fellow assistant Denis Hamlett - as the Caps cleared the way for incoming head coach Martin Rennie to bring his own assistants.

    Behind enemy lines
    Take a journey with the 'Caps traveling fans.



    Whitecaps FC were fortunate enough to not only to have some of the best fans in the league at home, but also on the road. It was rare for the club to travel to an away stadium where at least a few 'Caps supporters did not make the trip. Whether it be family and friends of players or loyal supporters of the team, Whitecaps players on the pitch could always count on some friendly voices in the stands. It was not just in the Cascadia games in Seattle and Portland where fans made the trek, but to almost every stadium in the league. The following video is a glimpse into the sights and sounds of Whitecaps supporters making their presence felt in hostile territory.

    A new era
    Rennie set to kick off first camp



    Martin Rennie is now in town to begin a new era with Whitecaps FC, as he runs his first training camp starting Wednesday at Burnaby Lake. This is a chance for players to stake their claim to a roster spot for next year. The coach and players will take this time to get to know each other on and off the field, as coach Rennie will be looking to do some one-on-ones as well as evaluate and critique their performances in each practice session.

    It is a key time for both coach and players, as first impressions are always important, especially when knowing that major decisions are being made on a day-to-day basis. While the process could be stressful, I feel that Martin’s communication skills with his friendly approach and desire to get to know the players individually that each member of the squad will know exactly where they stand and what is expected of them. The trick is for them to go out and get it done on the field.

    The two will be hoping to continue a fruitful relationship that has made the RailHawks one of the most feared sides in second-tier North American soccer. The pair navigated Carolina to a USSF D-2 playoff final last year, and an NASL regular season title this season.

    Evaluation camp gives Whitecaps' Nolly shot at redemption
    Veteran 'keeper tries to work his way back to starting' role for 'Caps



    VANCOUVER, B.C. – Goalkeeper Jay Nolly has been with the Vancouver Whitecaps for four seasons. He’d like to make it five.

    The 6-foot-3 Orlando native was a big part of the club’s success in the lower tiers of North American soccer prior to Vancouver’s move to MLS in 2011. He helped the ‘Caps claim a USL-1 Championship in 2008, and his individual excellence earned him the USSF D-2 Goalkeeper of the Year award in 2010.

    But 2011 was a different story. When former head coach Teitur Thordarson lost his job, director of soccer operations Tom Soehn stepped in as interim head coach and benched Nolly in favor of Joe Cannon.

    With Martin Rennie now at the helm and holding an evaluation camp this week, the 29-year-old netminder has a chance to get back in his coach's good graces.

    Morfaw and Elmasri leave Whitecaps after camp
    Rennie makes first tough decisions as Vancouver head coach



    Incoming Vancouver Whitecaps head coach Martin Rennie wanted to start molding his squad from the get-go, and on Monday, that process officially began.

    The Whitecaps announced that midfielder Alexandre Morfaw has been waived and defender Omar Elmasri’s loan spell will not be renewed.

    Morfaw (above) had been a member of the Whitecaps since joining the squad midway through their 2010 USSF Division-2 campaign, after previously playing for Swedish side Bodens BK. The Cameroonian made six appearances during that season, and appeared twice in Vancouver’s 2011 MLS campaign.

    Rennie watches MLS squad in game action


    Team White and Team Blue each recorded clean sheets, as they played to a 0-0 draw in a Vancouver Whitecaps FC intrasquad match in front of several supporters at Percy Perry Stadium in Coquitlam, BC, on Saturday.

Assistant coach Paul Ritchie manned the sidelines for Team Blue, while Residency technical director Richard Grootscholten was on the bench for Team White. Head coach Martin Rennie observed from the sidelines at the halfway line.

    Whitecaps' youngster Salgado to train with Fulham

    Top SuperDraft pick to train with EPL side beginning Nov. 17


    VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Omar Salgado got to taste life in Major League Soccer this season, and he’s about to get a chance to train with an English Premier League team.

    The first overall pick in last year’s MLS SuperDraft is off to London, where he’ll train with Fulham FC from Nov. 17 to Dec. 4.

    “It will be an excellent experience,” Salgado told WhitecapsFC.com. “It is always good to be able to train with different teams and experience different styles and environments. Opportunities like this help me grow as a player and a person.”

    For Salgado, 18, it’s his second chance to play with some of England’s best, having trained with Everton FC last fall, and the Whitecaps hope the extra experience can help him push on to the next level.

    The long-rumored signing of former South Korean international Lee Young-Pyo was finally made official by the Vancouver Whitecaps on Tuesday.

    “Lee is a quality individual and leader — both on and off the pitch — that has excelled at all levels of the game and we are thrilled he will be joining our club," said Whitecaps FC new head coach Martin Rennie in a statement

    Change at the top in Vancouver as CEO Barber departs
    Ex-Tottenham man signs off after successful transition to MLS



    VANCOUVER, B.C. – There's change at the top of Vancouver Whitecaps FC, as the club announced on Friday that CEO Paul Barber is moving on to pursue another opportunity.

    The Englishman handed in his resignation last week, but he’ll continue with the Whitecaps until Feb. 29, 2012, to help the transition.

    “It’s been a wonderful two years at the club,” Barber told MLSsoccer.com on Friday at The Landing, the building in which the club’s head office is based. “I came here with some very specific goals in mind: to prepare the club for Major League Soccer, to manage the transition to Major League Soccer and to help the club move in to not just one stadium, but two.

    “We’ve achieved that, and we’ve established our brand,” Barber continued. “We’ve got a fantastic season ticket base and fan base, great sponsors and a fantastic front office.”

    Whitecaps get US international Nguyen in weighted lottery
    Vancouver's high odds pay off, win lottery for midfielder/forward



    The Vancouver Whitecaps' rebuilding process just got a boost.

    The 'Caps won Thursday's weighted lottery for American midfielder/forward Lee Nguyen, beating out five other clubs for the US international's MLS rights. Nguyen signed a multi-year deal with the league on Dec. 6.

    Vancouver had the highest probability of winning with 47.6 percent, while Canadian rivals Toronto FC were second with a 38.3 percent chance. FC Dallas, Houston, Real Salt Lake and the LA Galaxy also participated.

    “We’re very excited to add a talented player like Lee,” Whitecaps FC head coach Martin Rennie said in a statement. “He’s a young player with a bright future. We look forward to seeing him in preseason.”

    Watson reunites with Rennie as newest 'Caps addition
    Englishman spent three seasons with Carolina Railhawks



    , B.C. – Martin Rennie added one his old charges on Friday, as the Vancouver Whitecaps announced they have signed Matt Watson, formerly of Rennie’s NASL Carolina RailHawks side.

    The Englishman, a midfielder by trade, bolsters a position Rennie has targeted for improvement. Although born in Redditch, England, Watson has played his entire college and professional career in North America, first with the University of Maryland before moving on to the professional game in the second division.

    “Matt has consistently been one of the best players at the North American second division level over the past four years — three of which I had the pleasure of coaching him,” Rennie said in a club statement. “He has had several offers to join Major League Soccer teams, so I am really pleased that he has chosen to take the next step in his career with Vancouver Whitecaps FC.”

    'Caps coach seeks defensive help, repeated success with Watson



    VANCOUVER, B.C. — Here’s how Vancouver Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie spent the holidays in his native Scotland: He watched more than a few Scottish Premier League games, including the Old Firm derby between Glasgow rivals Celtic and Rangers, and popped down to England to take in a number of Premier League and Championship matches.

    Yes, in between time with family, Rennie scouted, but he declined to say which English matches he took in for fear of fueling speculation about potential signings.

    Whitecaps' Nanchoff eager for healthy return in 2012
    Vancouver youngster plagued by groin injury in debut season



    Stay healthy and help the Vancouver Whitecaps make a push for the playoffs. It’s that simple for Michael Nanchoff, who missed extended periods of the Whitecaps’ debut season in 2011 with a groin injury.

    But if the “big rubber band” has anything to say about it, Nanchoff will see much more of the field in 2012.

    Innovative physiotherapist Rick Celebrini, who joined the Whitecaps in July, put together a detailed offseason fitness plan for Nanchoff with the aim of injury prevention, using a device called the Core X.

    “[The Core X] is some kind of crazy device which provides a lot of resistance,” Nanchoff told MLSsoccer.com by phone from North Royalton, Ohio, on Tuesday. “It gives tension to your left wrist, your right wrist and both your thighs. You can do all sorts of exercises and different movements with it.

    Hassli will need to pick up where he kicked off


    He was the toast of Vancouver for a large portion of last season for the Whitecaps. A giant, standing 6’4 and weighing in at 200 pounds. A complex myriad of tattoos adorned each of his arms. Eric Hassli had the look of a superstar, and in his first MLS match the talent was on display for all to see.

    Hassli is a fan favourite here in Van City, with his dazzling goal against the Sounders and his likable demeanour. Fans are hoping that he will re-discover his form of old and blow the roof off of BC Place. However, as of now, I would think Long Tan is the favourite to start. Eric Hassli has the tools, and he could own this city if he consistently plays like he knows how. Until then however, he, like the entire Whitecaps franchise, has a lot to prove next season
