Just call Whitecaps’ Jordan Harvey ‘Mr. Consistency’ from nba2kah's blog

VANCOUVER—The Vancouver Whitecaps had a rough start to the Major League Soccer season, losing their first two matches—and conceding five goals in the process—before bouncing back to win the next two.It is your chance to buy some Fifa 17 coins from online sites Fifa 17 coins.


But if there’s one Whitecap who didn’t need a bounce-back of his own, it’s veteran left fullback Jordan Harvey. Call him Mr. Consistency: The 32-year-old has had a solid month as a vital member of the team’s defensive unit. As a bonus, he scored a goal in the club’s first regular-season match, a 3–2 loss to the Montreal Impact.


Dependability has been something of a trademark for Harvey throughout his career, though if you ask him to pinpoint exactly how he’s managed to maintain a consistent level of play, he just chalks it up to the years of MLS experience he has under his belt.


In fact, Harvey has been playing in MLS so long he has a hard time remembering exactly how many seasons it’s been.Do you want to know about what are Fifa 17 coins for sale or how do I buy Cheap fifa 17 coins? Don't worry, you can enter our website and understand more about them. 


“This is—jeez, I can’t even count—my 11th or 12th year in the league,” Harvey told Sportsnet after a team practice on Wednesday. “I think it’s just experience. Because you’ve established yourself, you’ve played games, you’ve played at different stadiums and in different environments, and you’re comfortable with it. With comfort comes confidence.”


That confidence came in handy during the rocky early weeks of the current campaign. For a Whitecaps side that finished last year tied for the best overall defensive record in MLS, the back line’s initial struggles were a burning topic of conversation after the first two losses.


Harvey, though, is quick to defend the defenders.


“I think it’s hard to criticize just the defence,” he said. “I think as a team we were making some errors that were costing us games. Over the course of the last two games everybody has raised their levels and consistency, and we’re obviously getting results because of it.”


The California native, who was taken ninth overall in the 2006 MLS Supplemental Draft by the Colorado Rapids and played two seasons in Philadelphia before being traded to Vancouver in 2011, is accustomed to the ups and downs of a long MLS season—and the competition sparked by depth on the roster.


Pre-season chatter had pitted Harvey against 21-year-old homegrown fullback Sam Adekugbe in a battle for the starting role. That’s where Harvey’s self-assurance also came in handy.


“Coming into this year, this pre-season, I felt like I was playing really well, my fitness was up,” said Harvey of his early outlook.
