Congrats to @david_ousted_official_ on his new deal, which should keep him at #OurClub for 2-3 more seasons! David, you know how grateful we are for your role in the progression of the Club...and we can't wait for what the future holds!

Ousted, Ousted, Ousted!

Happy 31st Birthday to our #1 @david_ousted_official_! David, we hope you had a great weekend with your family and that your first day in Arizona went well. We'll see you when you're back in ‪#‎VanCity‬. All our best as you continue to prepare for ‪#‎FirstKick‬!

2015 Reflections: David Ousted

As we continue to reflect on last season we want to thank our #GreatDane, @david_ousted_official_, for all his contributions to our success on and off the pitch in 2015.

David, thanks for the 15 clean sheets you kept (13 in the League)! Thanks for allowing the fewest goals in #MLS! Thanks for the 3 PKs you stopped, especially the pair away to #DeadBullNewJersey, which helped us win in their arena...again! Thanks for marshalling our back line! Thanks for showing your passion on the pitch! Thanks for helping us lift our very first #VoyageursCup...and for throwing your kit to one of our partners that fateful evening!!!

We also want to thank you for your leadership on the field and in the locker-room. One memory we have from this season was when one of our partners asked why you traveled with the squad to Edmonton (twice!) for the semi-finals of the #VsCup? Why didn't you stay home and let @mcarducci96 travel? You told us that @70tornaghi had always done such a good job supporting you as a backup and you wanted to do the same for him. It spoke volumes about your commitment to #OurClub and your teammates. #Respect!

We hope your off season with your family is going well! Give our best to your Dad, as we enjoyed meeting him on his visit this season. We look forward to seeing you back in #VanCity in a few weeks! Until then...

Much Love,

One of the Collective

Happy 41st Birthday to our former #1 'Keeper @josephrcannon! We hope today was meaningful for you and your fantastic family! Thank you for all you did while at #OurClub! Thank you for supporting supporters. Also, thanks for getting some of our partners out the VIP exit after the match in San Jose in April! We'll see you again soon!

Much Love,

2015 Reflections: Paolo Tornaghi

We begin our reflections on the 2015 campaign, and especially our squad, by focusing on @70tornaghi. Paolo never played an ‪#‎MLS‬ minute during his 2 yrs in ‪#‎VanCity‬, but he has still made significant contributions to ‪#‎OurClub‬!

Paolo is a consummate professional. He always ‪#‎GaveHisAll‬ in training & was a part of the positive chemistry w/in the team. That might sound like a nice thing to say, but when you spend time w/Paolo, you get to see what a genuine, caring person he is & you realize that all that you have heard rings true.

Paolo's putting the Club ahead of himself was made evident in the days following our April 26, 2014 last gasp draw in Salt Lake. Following ‪#‎SebastianFernandez‬ hitting an equalizer from distance @ the death, all the subs on our bench, entered the field of play to celebrate. The League wanted to suspend all of them. Paolo was accepting of taking all of the punishment & only he got the 1 match ban.

In addition to some Reserve & ‪#‎USL‬ matches, Paolo played in 7 Cup matches for us in 2015. In 4 ‪#‎CCL‬ games, Paolo led us to our first draw & win, in our inaugural campaign in this continental competition.

Of most importance, however, Paolo played in our first 3 ‪#‎VoyageurCup‬ matches. We were sad that you weren't given the chance to start in the 2nd Leg of the Finale, but once again you showed your true character in how you handled it. Thanks for your role in bringing us our very 1st ‪#‎VsCup‬!!! This will forever be a part of the story of our Club!!! ‪#‎Thanks‬ also for leading ‪#‎TheHumba‬ after the dramatic win in ‪#‎YEG‬ & swapping kits w/ our dear friend @jrunn14 & for your support of our movement.

We wish you & @valentina_70_ all our best for what is next in football & life. Know that wherever you end up, we will be following & supporting (except when you play us) from ‪#‎UpperCa5cadia‬. We hope our paths cross again!

‪#‎MilleGraziePaolo‬ ‪#‎SupportIsAlways‬

Much Love,
