Last weekend's match at the Vancouver Whitecaps was the final game of the 2014 season for the Colorado Rapids, and so this week's Rapids Podcast reflects upon that, while also casting an early eye to 2015.

At 9.04 p.m MT on Saturday, October 25, a substitution was forced upon Colorado Rapids' head coach, Pablo Mastroeni. Right back Marvell Wynne limped out of the contest at the Vancouver Whitecaps with a hamstring injury, to be replaced by Davy Armstrong, and it was at this point that club history was made.

For the second successive Saturday, just one goal proved the Colorado Rapids’ undoing as they ended their bitterly disappointing 2014 season with loss number 18 in a 1-0 reversal at Vancouver Whitecaps.

Without Vicente Sanchez, José Mari, Dillon Powers, Edson Buddle, Marc Burch, Kamani Hill, Jared Watts, Drew Moor or Thomas Piermayr, the Rapids’ first-year head coach Pablo Mastroeni went north with only 17 players (not the 18 permitted), and it was one of the youngest travel parties.

VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Colorado Rapids must wait until 2015 to end their winless streak as they bowed out of the 2014 season with a 1-0 defeat at the Vancouver Whitecaps, extending their stretch to 14 without success. The Whitecaps, meanwhile, edged nervously into the playoffs with the win they required.

With the pressure on, the Whitecaps made hard work of their encounter with the already-eliminated Rapids before finally rising to the occasion with a 70th-minute winner from Kendall Waston as Vancouver got a 1-0 win to take them into the postseason.

Carlos Alvarez is a dream for interviewers. He is fluent in both English and Spanish, which is perfect for somebody like me, for whom foreign languages are just that.
