The long, tough summer around BC Place has claimed several victims in terms of performance among the Whitecaps. Suffice to say, it generally hasn’t been good enough as Martin Rennie’s club squandered one opportunity after another to put some distance on the pursuers from FC Dallas, the only club still battling Vancouver for that final playoff spot.
One man has remained steadfast, captain Jay DeMerit. His performances in every game I’ve seen have ranged from pretty good to downright heroic.
Here’s what the former U.S. international had to say about last night’s 4-0 win over Chivas USA:
It’s been the performance we’ve been waiting for for a long time. It takes a certain effort from a lot of guys to do performances like tonight. For once we put a performance together — the defenders defended well, and the goalscorers went and scored goals.
At the end of the day, it comes down to pretty simple things and pretty simple jobs. It’s just a matter of guys taking responsibility to do them.”
