  1. Have to agree. This whole arbitrary move by a few without any consultation that I could see, bites. Was there some sort of hidden thread discussing this? My question about where the off topic threads are going is being ignored. I can live with losing a singing nun thread that probably had more views than the Futsal forum combined, I can even live with losing a software thread that I put over a decade of work into and had many thanks sent my way. But what I find unconscionable is if the stadium thread is lost. That is probably the only archive of Canadian stadium construction news and history out there, not just football stadiums but Saputo, BMO and BC Place. And all I've seen as reasons why controversial threads or posts are gone are because of supposed "ghosts" out there who will kill the Vs if we're not politically correct. That is the biggest pile of bullshit I've ever heard and can't fathom anybody believing it. And worse case scenario, even if it were true would you want to be part of an organization that kowtowed to people telling them to keep quiet. WTF? I don't know what is going on behind the scenes here but something's not right and I can only speculate my thoughts, but it is a done deal so I guess it doesn't matter. Never say never but I can't see myself going to the new site, because I feel pretty betrayed, but I feel pretty good about the fact that I've been around longer than most, made some contributions in posting news and keeping/refurbing the Moaca and speaking my mind about what I believed in even if most others disagreed.
  2. Where are the off topic threads?
  3. I'm old and my brain has gone to mush but I seem to remember when he went from defender to forward he had a helluva strike rate which seemed to come totally out of the blue. Looking at that list it seems that nobody took better advantage of their chances than McKenna and Gerba.
  4. Agree on both, I've always been a real Leon fan. Not quite the Tanc presence that I think most teams need but I think she is as close as we've got. Aside from Sinc, I think Beckie and Leon are among the few who have a real poacher's sense.
  5. Did they actually say that, because I think they were giving Sinc her props for having the expertise of being in the right place at the right time. I'll try and temper my bias but we were definitely better in the first half, and they had a decent run in the second but they never seriously threatened. Labbe had a fairly quiet day. But that goal we scored, Wicky Wacky Woo! Unfortunately the highlight don't show the entire field long setup.
  6. I haven't looked lately but I believe England are ranked ahead of us. Personally, I've never thought they were very good and yesterday didn't change my perception, especially when they field the same lineup we've seen for years. But then again so did we a bit, and experience aside I think a few on our side should have their swan song.
  7. Got away with one there in the final minute. Nothing especially inspiring, looked like both teams played their lineups from years ago. Don't think I'll be rewatching this one.
  8. Great full field length setup play on that goal, I thought they'd score. Hit the bar... and then BAM
  9. Most of the first half played in the England end. We were marginally better but neither side had an especially dangerous opportunity
  10. After watching that clip, I miss Dobbie, a guy who made himself into a soccer announcer, learned from his mistakes and added some truthful emotion.
  11. My God, I can't believe that was 17 years ago. Funny how names that are so commonplace on this board disappear, I guess that's what happens in 17 years. Heard this fellas name mentioned:
  12. ^Good find. Here is what the introduction to the video said, kinda summed up what we've been talking about. Most Canadian fans remember the Gold Cup Semi-Final match between the US and Canada in 2007 when Canada was robbed of a last-minute equalizer by some diabolically bad officiating. But the two teams faced off in the Gold Cup Semi-Final 5 years before that as well, which went all the way to penalty kicks before the US prevailed. The most memorable part of that match was this sequence of events where the US had four point blank shots at the net in a manner of seconds, the first off the woodwork before Hirschfeld made two fantastic reaction saves with a Jason De Vos block in between. It was the moment that Lars arrived as one of Canada's premiere international keepers.
  13. Was that the game that Lars did his impersonation of a pinball machine flipper?
