MLS- Vancouver Whitecaps

Whitecaps fire Thordarson, make Soehn head coach

The Vancouver Whitecaps began their inagural season in MLS with so much promise, delivering a season-opening thrashing of Toronto FC making many wonder if this expansion team might be more successful than most past expansion teams.

The Whitecaps haven't won a game since, and head coach Teitur Thordarson paid the price for that on Monday by being fired by the club on Saturday night, after the team's 1-1 draw vs. New York.

Director of Soccer Tom Soehn was chosen to replace Thordarson. The former D.C. United head coach was hired as the team's director of Soccer Operations more than a year ago and is joined on the staff by former Chicago Fire head coach Denis Hamlett.

What do you think of this development? Think it was only a matter of time? Can you see Soehn help turn things around?
