As Carl Robinson met the media in Vancouver on Monday, there were plenty of questions to answer about the future. Matt Kemp Jersey . With the Whitecaps controversial playoff loss in Dallas now in the rear-view mirror, attention is already turning to what the Caps squad will look like next season. After setting a new single season points record, qualifying for the Champions League and successfully defending the Cascadia Cup, there is plenty for Robinson to be pleased about. He has had an excellent first season as a head coach and has laid a strong foundation for future success, but there are some big decisions facing the Whitecaps coach in the next few weeks to ensure the club has the best possible chance of building upon an impressive 2014. Here are five key jobs on Carl Robinsons To Do list: 1. Find a striker (or two) Since the departures of Camilo and Kenny Miller, the Whitecaps have been missing a natural goalscorer. They will likely add a Designated Player striker this winter, and it would be a surprise if the player doesnt come from South or Central America. Robinson will do some travelling in the next few weeks as he narrows down his search as he looks for the ideal signing to complement the pieces he already has within the squad. It’s likely Robinson will not only try to sign a DP, but also bring in another frontman as well, either as a permanent signing or maybe securing the loan of a younger player. “I will turn over every rock,” said Robinson. “I know what is around in MLS, but teams don’t want to give their good players away. We will look abroad, as well, whether it is a European player or a South–Central American player, I will certainly be doing a lot of travelling in the offseason.” 2. Bring back Laba There isn’t much doubt about this one. Matias Laba won the Whitecaps “Unsung Hero” award and was outstanding throughout the year. The young Argentine has quickly developed into one of the top two or three defensive midfielders in Major League Soccer and will be returning to Vancouver next season. After joining from Toronto FC in March, the Whitecaps now have the option to pay a pre-agreed sum to their Canadian rivals in order to keep Laba’s services long-term. Carl Robinson says there isn’t an issue and that Laba will be staying with the club, but ‘Caps fans will still breathe a huge sigh of relief when the ink is dry on the paperwork. “There is a fee agreed for us to take Mati and we will be doing that because Mati has been fantastic for us and is a big part of this club moving forward. That fee will be settled between the two ownership groups,” explained the Whitecaps coach. 3. Mattocks and Salgado As Robinson looks to strengthen his squad and bring in “a few fresh faces next season,” there will likely be departures, either through trades or the Expansion Draft. Two players who seem unlikely to have a future with the club long term are young strikers Darren Mattocks and Omar Salgado. Mattocks is a valuable asset within MLS, despite his lack of consistency in front of goal, and if the Whitecaps are to sign one or two starting forwards, it is possible they could get value within the league for Mattocks to strengthen the team in other areas. Salgado finished the year on trial with Tigres in Mexico after a season where there was more talk about his temperament than his footballing ability. It seems best for both parties if there is a parting of the ways before next year. “We will sit down with him and discuss the best way to move forward,” said Robinson. “I don’t want him to get frustrated. If he feels it is right and we feel it is right for us to part ways, we will. I want to help him personally because he has been injured for a number of years and he wants to play. The one thing I will never do is stop players going to play football somewhere.” 4. Defensive decisions The Whitecaps found their number one starting central defender with the signing of Costa Rican giant Kendall Waston this summer. Now Robinson must decide which other central defenders he wants to have in his squad next year. In an ideal scenario, the ‘Caps will be able to sign another central defender to start alongside Waston and also re-sign veteran Andy O’Brien who had a very good end to the season. O’Brien played more minutes than any other Whitecaps central defender but if he stays with the club, he may have a reduced role moving forward. With the club also set to be in the Champions League, having an experienced player like O’Brien on board would be important. “Andy has been fantastic this year and has got stronger as the season has gone on,” said Robinson. “I would like to try and keep Andy at the club in some capacity, if I can, because I think he is a very good leader. Because we are in a salary cap league, it depends on the financial side of it, as well.” O’Brien has loved his time in Vancouver so far and wants to stay. The former Ireland international says he’s not against taking a pay cut in order to extend his career. “The objective would be to play as many games as possible – I view it as a challenge, he said. It’s not all about money, it’s about being wanted. I’ve been very blessed to have the career that I’ve had and at this stage of my career it’s about being made to feel welcome.” 5. Magnificent Mauro Mauro Rosales was superb, both on and off the pitch, following his move from Chivas USA and the Whitecaps would love to find a way to keep him for 2015. Rosales would need to agree to take a cut in salary, but there is also a possibility the club could sweeten a deal by allowing him to also start a transition to the coaching ranks. Rosales wouldn’t play every match next season, but having his presence within the squad and his undoubted teaching abilities would be a big bonus within a young squad. “He has been excellent since the trade and, in the last game, in my view, he was the best player on the park. He’s got a lot to bring to the table, but, obviously, it is a financial decision, as well. I will be doing everything I can to try and keep Mauro at the club.” Chase Utley Jersey . Sami Vatanen had a goal and an assist and Anaheim used a four-goal first period to extend their winning streak to six games with a 5-2 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday night. Chris Taylor Jersey . Osmond, of Marystown, N.L., fell in the middle of her routine and placed fifth in the ladies free skate at Iceberg Skating Palace (110.73 points), but that was all the Canadians needed after a strong performance by Kevin Reynolds in the mens free earlier Sunday. . Alexander was released last week by the Edmonton Eskimos, where he spent the past three seasons at safety. He had 121 defensive tackles, five special teams tackles and seven interceptions in 51 regular-season and three playoff games. NEW YORK -- The New York Jets have re-signed kicker Nick Folk to a four-year contract, less than two weeks after placing the franchise tag on him. The team announced the multiyear deal Tuesday, shortly after the NFLs free agency period began. It did not release the terms. Folk wrote on his Instagram page: ".4moreyears So excited to be back!" Folk, coming off perhaps the best season of his seven-year NFL career, was sscheduled to become an unrestricted free agent. Maury Wills Jersey. Folk had said late last season he believed he had earned a potential long-term deal after making 33 of 36 field-goal attempts, including three winning kicks. He also broke the franchise records for most consecutive field goals from the start of a season (23) and most consecutive home field goals (20). Folk also had a career-high 30 touchbacks on his kickoffs.
