  1. Any inkling what the format might be with 2 semi-pro teams, 8 CPL+USL + 3 MLS?
  2. For the unused season tickets: we created a FB group for our section in MTL where people can buy/sell their ticket(s). No intermediary.

    I'm actually shocked that we're not looking at 8 turf surfaces! PFC, Calgary and HFX going with grass.

  6. This is Canada and soccer, so we'll likely get the group with Guatemala in it... As for accountability and visionary appointments, I bring you this moment: Dale Mitchell, 0 points, 0 goals at home for U20 WC. Promoted to senior team coach. The CSA doesn't have any other candidates, unless they grab a Thordarson or a (jinx?) Marc Dos Santos... and would that be an improvement?
  7. He's got "potential", which is what the article is saying. He's strong, fast and an excellent finisher - he finished top scorer of the CSL in 2009. Last year he struggled a bit in his rookie year, but hopefully he's going to start coming into his own at the professional level.

Elle sera également synonyme de Jeux olympiques pour les meilleures nations au monde. Régulièrement appelé au sein de l'équipe des moins de 23 ans du Canada, Agourram est aussi sollicité par l'équipe du Maroc. Le natif de Rabat, installé au Québec depuis l'âge de 10 ans, a maintenant une décision importante à prendre. Son avenir international se fera-t-il en rouge ou décidera-t-il d'y ajouter une touche de vert et blanc? «L'équipe olympique marocaine m'a contacté et je suis en train de regarder et de penser à ma décision. C'est un choix très difficile, mais je continue à en parler avec ma famille. Marc m'a aussi conseillé. J'espère faire le meilleur choix possible, car c'est très important pour un joueur de jouer au niveau international.»"
  9. It doesn't make sense, as it's not aligned with whatever quota the MLS/NASL have. For example, you can have an all-American team in Canada in the NASL, or an MLS team might have Canadians as mainly depth players, in which case it'd dilute the squad on the field.
  10. Apologies for its own topic, but it's potentially a big one, and there's finally been some confirmation with the CSA updating the NCC site: http://www.canadasoccer.com/documents/2011_championship_rulesEN_pdf.pdf "If the two teams involved in a match score the same number of goals over the two legs, the team which scores more away goals is determined as the winner."
  11. Where did you hear this? The NCC site has the 2010 rules , and NASL/MLS typiclaly don't use away-goals as a tiebreaker for their knockout ties.
  12. Is there an away-goals rule for the VCup??? Montreal 1-1 Vancouver Edmonton 1-1 Toronto Vancouver 0-1 Montreal Toronto 2-0 Edmonton Top scorer: Ali G.
  13. And now back to RBNY . Edit: And now back to Van. WTF. Edit2: Back to NY!
  14. Looks like RBNY-Sounders.
  15. So 15 people browsing the thread, still no link?
  16. This. There are many ways to designate a champion, and none of the VCup formats are sacred by any means. Hell, in 2007, TFC didn't even participate!

  18. In a post-mortem interview with the team, Quebec Soccer is reporting that 2011 might move to a knockout tournament (as per Desantis): http://www.quebecsoccer.com/article.php?id=2261
  19. Le 12e joueur: excellent blog http://le12ejoueur.ca/
  20. 1999 A-League Sacramento Geckos: 0-28-0 (16:91), with 1 point due to a bonus point (3 goals, I think)! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1999_A-League#Pacific_Division
  21. What kind of people are picking up this team? You'd figure the Victory have most of the support in Melbourne. What makes people want to support this team over the Victory?
  22. You know what's sad? I bought the "official" scarf (with old font) over 10 years ago and they haven't redesigned it...
  23. I'm with nolando, but think we should try and expand the brand to wet t-shirt contests.
