  1. What about the PDL teams - do we incorporate them and turn them pro, try to use them as reserve/U23 teams for the top teams, or compete directly?
  2. Sounds a lot like the KPMG report in the early 2000s about the viability of a top level league here. Are these market research groups really in a position to tell us what most of us already know/suspect? Is a nationwide D2 league viable, in your opinion, and would it mark an improvement on the current state of the game? Will people actually go to see Calgary vs. Quebec City when there's an MLS game on TV?
  3. I used to work with Aljarov on a project "canucks-abroad.com", I think the site is down now but this was the interview I had with Tam a couple of years ago. Hopefully its not the final word on the subject.
  4. There's highlights on youtube, but no Johnson goal - anyone have a link? EDIT: ah, the Sportsnet vids have it now - great to see it replayed after watching it from the south end!
  5. 2-0 final. De Ro (pen) '62 and Jackson (breakaway, rounds the keeper) '84.
  6. Among his achievements are "taking New Zealand to the WWC in 2007 and 2011". Was there a playoff, or did they just have to overcome the might of Fiji and Vanuatu?
  7. In terms of players still eligible, there's not many apart from Hoilett and JDGII, are there?
  8. So we're two points better than Pumas after playing the same two fixtures. Not bad. They may very well get a win in Dallas, though, especially if FCD relax a bit and figure they're through. With that in mind we'll need anywhere from 2-4 points against Pumas and might still go out on goal differential (or is it head-to-head?). Either way its very, very tight...
  9. If Stephen doesn't call me up I'm afraid I'll have no choice but to announce my international retirement.
  10. Want to get a few tickets in 114 for St. Lucia, am I too late? Did anybody buy a block and is selling?
  11. So far, the U-20s have been doing exactly what the senior team wasn't -- shooting once in a while. You can hear Fleming and co. shouting "shoot!" every time we have the ball outside the area and it led to the first goal with a nice rebound. Put it on net, and good things will happen -- the Gold Cup showed that its no use tapping the ball around and hoping for an opening. If they can scrape a win against Rwanda, we should go through at least as a best third-place team. We could have the same amount of points and a worse GD then the senior team did at the WC, but this has been a tough group so far.
  12. Was that header a replay? What's the score? EDIT: Nope. I switched over as the free kick was being taken, I must be bad luck
