Doesn't sound like a super high risk signing as this doesn't use a DP slot, though depending on how he does it could get there in the future. Rennie apparently did a good job on selling the club to Reo-Coker instead of Portland (woot!).
Just very happy about everything in this signing, it really gives us that extra strength & not to mention depth in the middle of the park that is so huge.

After watching the Whitecaps throughout last year, I thought that while the attacking and defending pieces they had were good, they lacked the link up in midfield with a deep lying playmaker who could win balls and then make the pass up front to the attacking midfielders.
When he's on his game, I think Reo-Coker can provide it, though from what I remember him from the EPL, he does have discipline problems from time to time.
