Guess the Starting XI – Match 14 vs. St. Louis City

Welcome back, everyone.

The matches keep coming thick and fast for the Vancouver Whitecaps as they head out on the road to expansion side St. Louis City SC this weekend. After a red-hot start to the year St. Louis has come back down to earth, but at the moment they are still one of the top dogs in the West. Of course, former Vancouver Whitecaps Jake Nerwinski and Tim Parker will be relishing a chance to get some revenge against their former club as well. For everything you need to know about the match, check out our preview here.

In terms of lineup, there are no surprise absences of note for this weekend, but obviously Ali Ahmed will not be available in light of his injury midweek. Those who played the full 90 on the island might be good candidates for limited minutes in this one.

Ok, on to rules and standings.

    I don’t know anymore. Will the Caps surprise me? Again?

  2. I expect a surprise but I am going to play it safe. Maybe that is why I don’t move up the standings, just like the Caps!

    1-2 St. Louis. Out of conference road trip loss. No big deal.

    If Yao doesn’t play, let alone start, in this particular match, they might as well loan him back to CPL on a rent-to-buy plan.
