Whenever I see Robson on the field, he's either whining or yelling at the ref. Jesus Christ...

Yeah, Andy has been a great addition to the back line. Hope he sticks around for another year.

Keane's first touch is still amazing.

No urgency at all... Well happy in some ways but this season has been a failure IMO. Not winning the Amway Canadian is a massive dissapointment and this game is just a microcosm of this.

Mattocks was dead from chasing the ball around for 60 mins. Rennie was somewhat handcuffed by DeMerit's injury. Though I don't know why he put Richards in instead of Camilo.

Jesus christ. This better be the last game I ever watch of Barry Robson. He is a VISIBLE cancer to this team.

You know how some players in sports are thought of as cancers... Robson is constantly yelling or giving up on his teammates. It's disgusting to see in a team-sport.

Ugh. Terrible first couple of minutes for Bonjour.

Hopefully they don't overkill with roster changes in the summer; they have a good core.

The more I watch that Donovan dive the more I just cringe at the official. Whitecaps deserved their fate but what was a horrible dive. It's why thorrington dove.

The only players I HOPE we keep this off-season.

Knighton
Richards
Mattocks
Y.P. Lee
O'Brien
Demerit
Harvey

Maybe a few others, but there's a lot of extra-baggage on this team.

Bonjour's mistake was the Caps Au Revoir to this season...

Gratz on being the first Canadian club qualifying for the playoffs.

Well at least we know what we need to improve in the offseason...

Everything.
Well the back end is good. D's good and goalkeeping is solid.

Tried to grind their way to a win and they tried their best but there's just not enough skill up front to make anything happen.

Barry Robson is a mess. Just get rid of him already. I wish we still had Chiumiento

'Caps lost because they were the second best team though.

A dead or unconscious Mattocks still beats a static Miller. Didn't even notice him whatsoever besides a glorious missed chance in front of the net before the series of LA goals.

Utterly pathetic way to go out, though fitting in a season that started out with so much promise after the 5 game mark. The mid-season changes spurred on by Chiumento's departure and Hassli trade should shorten the leash on Rennie. The Miller signing was undoubtedly a massive bust.

What to do this off-season? Seems like we're back to were we started.

DeMerit goes down at the critical moment.

But then when you're a Canucks fan, you're used to bad breaks ...

You know what, they need a guy who has a decent first touch and has a shoot first mentality. Both of those goals could've been easily converted if someone like that got the ball.

because camilo is awful?

all thing's considered, the season is a success. making the playoffs, and hanging with the champs. the win would've been amazing but this will do.


the team is probably in need of another overhaul. robson is inconsistent, miller is awful...camilo needs to go.

That was so typical, Miller and robson miss an open net, turn around galaxy scores then gets a PK and scores again.

Also hilarious subbing off watson easily our best player this game

I had a really bad feeling when Demerit went out and I knew Bonjour was going to **** up, I just didn't know he was going to **** up so early. Also the 'Caps were whining way too much, the ref wasn't good but you have to keep playing because he is not going to change his mind. That Thorrington dive was disgusting, I had to restrain myself from destroying the things around me.

Moves won't all be perfect, but you have to give credit to Rennie for getting a team that was last place last year into the playoffs. IMO Miller was the move that really pulled the teeth from the team the most. Robson at the time was the right move because the team needed to shore up the midfield, but I also do think Robson for his faults at least does something unlike Miller.

Well, disappointing way for the season to end, but at least we went further than Toronto ever has ...
