Curva Just Wants to Harvey All the Time!

Happy 32nd Birthday to @jordancharvey! Thanks for all your contributions to the best defence in ‪#‎MLS‬ in 2015! Although the season lacked your trade mark goals in massive matches, we have fond memories of the cross you laid on for ‪#‎CristianTechera‬ that night we smashed ‪#‎SaltLake‬ 4-0!

We also want to wish you well for the coming year on and off the pitch. All our best as you and @_kimcaldwell continue on your journey in parenthood. We will see you both and ‪#‎BabyHarlow‬ at matches very soon. Until then...

Much Love,

P.S. Thanks to @bobfridimages (@whitecapsfc photographer) for this photo from the evening we beat ‪#‎FCEdmonton‬ in the ‪#‎VoyageursCup‬ in 2013. Thanks for leading ‪#‎TheLambada‬ and swapping shirts with Mike that night.

Happy Birthday Sam!

Happy 21st Birthday to our Residency Grad, 1st Team, and #CMNT player @samadekugbe! Sam, we hope your day has been a good one! It has been a joy to see you develop as a player and a person during your time at #OurClub. This past year we all appreciated the performances you put in and the ways you contributed to our success. You played a significant role in some of our huge victories, especially in the early part of the campaign. Your pace down the left and your attacking instincts have all the supporters excited for what the future holds. We look forward to #GivingOurAll in support of you from #BCPlace's #westcurva again this season!

Time to Party Kendall!

Happy 28th Birthday to our defender @kendallwaston! We hope today has been a peaceful one for you and your dear family!

We also wanted to express our deep appreciation for all you have done for #OurClub and the way you have supported our movement this season. On the pitch you helped us allow the fewest goals, you scored twice (we won both of those matches), and you led us to our very first #VoyageursCup! Off the pitch you led #TheHumba in our section in May, came to one of our gatherings in October, and have shared your story with a number of our partners. We can't thank you enough! #Respect

We are excited that you have decided to extend your stay in #VanCity! All the best as you rest up for what will be another long season in 2016!

Much Love,

Happy Birthday Ethen!

Happy belated 22nd Birthday to @ethensampson27! We hope you had an amazing day! With your option being declined for 2016, we also wanted to thank you for your time at #OurClub over the past four years or so. It has been good to see you grow as a player, especially as you transitioned from centreback to rightback. We have fond memories of your strong tackles...keep it up!

We also wanted to thank you for leading #TheHumba after the #WFC2 victory vs. Arizona United at the end of May at Thunderbird! All the best to you for what is next in your footballing journey!

Much Love,

Thanks Beita!

Our song/chant for @stevenbeitashour will now have to be changed to:

BEITASHOUR WAS AWESOME,
BEITASHOUR WAS COOL WHEN HE WAS ON OUR TEAM.
BEITASHOUR WAS AWESOME,
NOW HE PLAYS FOR TFC

All joking aside, we want to thank you Beita for your 2 years of service to ‪#‎OurClub‬. Your presence on our back line helped us progress as a top defensive side in the League. Not only did we allow the fewest goals this season, but you were on the pitch for 21 clean sheets during your time here.

Thanks also for your contributions to our attack. Of your 8 assists there are a few that stand out. Your slide tackle last year away to Salt Lake that led to ‪#‎SebastianFernandez‬' dialling long distance to hit the equalizer at the death was, literally, AWESOME! Then there was your very unselfish pullback to Octavio Rivero in our first away match in Chicago this year, which was our first win of the season and helped us on our way to the best away record in the entire League. Speaking of away victories, your pinpoint cross setting up Kekuta for a brilliant strike in New Jersey in June was perhaps our favourite pass you made in our kit!

We are grateful to you for always ‪#‎GivingYourAll‬ on and off the field while you were here in
‪#‎VanCity‬. Thanks for your openness and always speaking frankly with us. Thank you for helping us lift our very first ‪#‎VoyageursCup‬! We greatly appreciate your willingness to lead ‪#‎TheHumba‬ in our section following the victory over LA in April. We chose you for this match, as we know how much you enjoy beating the Galaxy.

We understand the reasons for your move and we wish you and your family all the best...except when we play you of course. Until we meet again...

Much Love,

Happy Birthday Jay!!!

Happy 36th Birthday to our inaugural #MLS era #Captain @d6merit! We hope your day is a good one! Also, congrats to you and @ashleighmcivor on the safe arrival of little Oakes! We were moved by the words Ashleigh expressed the other day when describing the joy of becoming a parent: "I didn't even know it was possible to love this way..." All our best to the both of you on this new journey you are on! Thanks for the ways you have been supportive of supporters, like that night you stopped by to work on this display with us and our friends in @raincitybrigade.

Kendall Waston

We were thrilled with the news last week that our beloved @kendallwaston signed a new contract with ‪#‎OurClub‬. Thanks to Robbo and his staff for getting that done.

Kendall, as you travel home to Costa Rica today, we hope you, @prisjk, and your whole family enjoy your time away from ‪#‎VanCity‬. We can't wait until training camp in January and ‪#‎FirstKick‬ in March! Thanks for always ‪#‎GivingYourAll‬ on the pitch and supporting supporters off of it. Until we meet again...

Much Love,
