  1. Ya it was quite the shock to us all. :(
  2. .... and a quick profit for Puebla!
  3. Oh no, is Vancouver catching up with the rest of the country?
  4. I had planned to be there but have a conflict. I'll be at the next one!
  5. Nominate candidates in all ridings for the next Federal election! Jamie Macleod for PM!
  6. Not likely an issue. He is not in demand! "Striker Haber has not scored in 17 appearances for Falkirk and has been tipped to depart the club midway through a season-long loan, but will not make a return to Tayside." https://amp.sportsmole.co.uk/football/dundee/transfer-talk/news/mcintyre-plans-january-clear-out-in-bid-to-prepare-dundee-for-survival-fight_345262.html
  7. No I can't imagine that. If Davies is rocking at Bayern, Herdman will want to take advantage of that. He's not an idiot. He'll do whatever gives Canada the best chance to win!

  9. They had players bringing Tupperware to practice so they could take the buffet leftovers home to feed themselves with two or three of those minimum wage players sharing flats. Creative survival! The MLS minimum wage was ridiculous back in those days.
  10. Assuming they are not recycled of course!

    .... and Altidore started the year playing on an injured foot during the CCL which finally couldn't take anymore stress requiring in-season surgery! He finished 2017 and scored his MLS Cup winning goal on that same injured foot. Quite inspirational actually!

    That's great. Pleased for him. Under different circumstances and with more minutes, he might have worked out well here. Any word on his court issues? Have they been put to rest yet or is he still facing potential jail time?

    The contract was terminated by mutual consent according to Bez in the Toronto Sun. Just saying! Midfielder Ager Aketxe’s hefty contract, the biggest black mark on the resume of general manager Tim Bezbatchenko so far, was terminated “by mutual consent.” https://torontosun.com/sports/soccer/mls/toronto-fc/tfc-keeps-moor-morgan-makes-other-roster-moves

    Ironically, TFC feels that at least part of what they did last year was a mistake.
  15. It was an inauspicious debut for my friend Mehrdad who had previously run a soccer league inside a POW camp in Iran for the Iraqi prisoners captured during the Iran/Iraq war. His love of the game has taken him into a very solid career in soccer broadcast journalism. Go for it Jamie but try not to eat the glue sticks!
  16. Very much so. As far as I'm concerned, he could still be with TFC's MLS squad! Obviously they don't feel the same way.
  17. Who is to say that the local is cheaper? Do you know what salary he was on? Do you know what the locals make? It is much more likely that he was playing at his level as Nolando has said. What is your knowledge of the Swedish league? I think you are making a rather massive assumption with no actual facts to back it up. That's not to say he won't be a good CPL player of course. I like what I see in his edited highlight pack. He looks very serviceable and seems to play with confidence and authority!

    You know you're old when whenever the Fury is mentioned, I'm thinking Winnipeg!
  19. Change "when" to a mighty big "IF". It's like saying "when" the League of Wales is as good as the Premiership, will Swansea and Cardiff City be forced to move? Granted, that example is extreme as CPL will not be that much weaker than MLS but in Canada, it will come down to commercial viability. With TFC drawing 27k per match, would you really want it to join a league averaging less than 8k per match? It would be cutting off one's nose to spite the face! USL and CPL will be comparable thus making this current scenario feasible and realistic!
  20. In the same vein of crazy panicking, I am extremely worried that there are not yet line-ups outside the stadiums for opening day! C'mon people! Show your excitement and loyalty. Set up a tent and get ready to cheer on your team. You've only got three months!
