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,

One of the Collective

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.

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,

2015 Reflections: Kah

Congrats to @boykah on signing a contract extension today! There is always some awkwardness when a player joins our team from a rival...especially within #CA5CADIA, but at least you didn't come directly from #Se4tt1e!

In all seriousness, we really appreciate the way you helped use your experience and personality to invest into the lives of so many of the other players in our squad. You seemed to not only mentor some of them, but to also be a unifying presence for the whole side. We really value that.

On the pitch you made some significant contributions to our defence that was best in the League in goals allowed! You also had a great year going forward. Your brace away in #MiddleCA5CADIA ON August 1st will not soon be forgotten!!!

Something else that will live long in the memories of all your teammates is how you chose to value and celebrate our first ever #VoyageursCup victory. The rings you designed and shared with your cohorts and the technical staff are brilliant!!! Stepping up like that is a true symbol of your love for #OurClub!

Thank you also for the way in which you support the supporters. We were grateful to have you in our section, the match before your brace, to have you lead #TheHumba (thanks for the passion you showed in doing that) and to participate in a kit swap with one of our partners (@kylevchristensen)!

All our best to you and your wonderful family this off season! We'll see you at the end of the month of January.

Much Love,

Here's to You Mister Robinson!

We couldn't let today end without wishing a Happy 39th Birthday to our Gaffer, Carl Robinson! Robbo, thanks for all you have done in your 4 seasons of service to ‪#‎OurClub‬! We look forward to all the future has in store, especially how this season is going to finish. We appreciate how you conduct yourself and the tremendous amount of ‪#‎Respect‬ you have shown to ‪#‎VanCity‬ supporters. Keep up the good work!

Last year it was great to sing Happy Birthday to you with our players and fellow supporters from @raincitybrigade & @vancouversouthsiders at training.

We want to thank @octaviorivero29 for heading home the winning goal vs. Colorado on Wednesday night...and for leading ‪#‎TheHumba‬ in celebration! Muchas gracias, Octavio!!! We can't wait to support you and all our players over these final few months of the season!

Happy Birthday Kah!

@bobfridimages (@whitecapsfc photographer)

Happy 35th Birthday to @boykah! We hope you've had a meaningful day with your teammates and family! Thanks for all you've brought to ‪#‎OurClub‬ this season! We are also grateful for your leading of ‪#‎TheHumba‬ after the victory over San Jose at the weekend. We're hoping for more of the same in ‪#‎Se4tt1e‬ on Saturday as the ‪#‎CA5CADIACup‬ is on the line. Once again, we'll have your back. Until then...

Happy Birthday Camilo!

Happy 27th Birthday to our former striker and MLS era leading scorer @camilosanvezzo. We hope you've had a meaningful day with your wonderful family! All the best as you recover from your injury and return to the pitch. Maybe we'll get to see you in the CONCACAF Champions' League? That would be something special, eh? Until we meet again...

Much Love,

P.S. Thanks to @bobfridimages (@whitecapsfc photographer) for getting this photo after we beat the Goats in June 2013. Camilo celebrated with us by leading ‪#‎TheLambada‬...this was the season before we started using ‪#‎TheHumba‬ as our celebratory song/chant.

WFC2 Humba

t was great to celebrate the first home ‪#‎WFC2‬ victory with @ben.mckendry as he led ‪#‎TheHumba‬. Thanks, Ben! We look forward to many more occasions like this. We'll see you again at the weekend.
