5/16/2018

Fresh off a loss to 10-man Minnesota United, the Whitecaps returned home to BC Place on Friday to face the Houston Dynamo. The Caps had plenty of opportunities to win the game, but had to rely on some last minute heroics from Kendall Waston to save a single point. This week we talk about the draw with the Dynamo and all those missed opportunities to win it. We also look ahead to the visit of the San Jose Earthquakes and, of course, players salaries!

After breaking a three-match losing streak at home versus RSL, expectations were rising that the Whitecaps could go to Minnesota and win.

This week we try to make sense of what is plaguing the Whitecaps, and what they need to do to turn it around. We discuss Friday's match against the Houston Dynamo and why it's a must-win if...
