  1. Draw (tie) This was just enough for Puebla to qualify as last on the best second places in the group stages, and now play top team Morelia in a one-match round-of-16 for the Cup , the match in Morelia on February 26. I went to a Liga match in Puebla about 3 weeks ago, and the stadium was practically deserted, it is the big clubs in Mx City, Guadalajara, and Tijuana, as well as tv revenues (especially for us-mexican audience), that brings in crowds and the other money. The whole football schedules for professional clubs are really byzantine in Mexico. For an explanation of the Cup competition for the first part of this year, this is not a bad explanation: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copa_MX
  2. Great report. Ummm...maybe I have ben out of sync with everyone else given my expat situ, but WHY are there so many Canadians playing in Scotland? What's the story with that, anyway? Any elucidation for an old confused Canuck....?
  3. Australia's calling out lying from Premier League other clubs (and the clubs' forcing the players to the deception) consistently over the past 20 years has been a key to their huge success relative to CSA'S head-up-its-#ss attitude. from: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/dec/20/graham-arnold-names-injured-aaron-mooy-in-socceroos-asian-cup-squad "Graham Arnold has named a largely as-expected Socceroos squad for the forthcoming Asian Cup in UAE in January, with the inclusion of injured Premier League star, Aaron Mooy the major talking point. Mooy had previously ruled out any involvement in Australia’s Asian Cup defence after his club Huddersfield reported the midfielder had suffered a torn medial collateral ligament in his right knee during a 1-0 loss to Arsenal earlier this month. “I’m also sad that this injury will rule me out of the Asian Cup,” Mooy had previously told the club’s official website. “I’d like to wish the Socceroos all the best as they head to the UAE. I’ll be supporting them from afar.” FFA delayed the announcement of the squad by 24 hours and it’s understood they commissioned an independent medical assessment on Mooy by a third-party expert, with further medical assessments to be made on Friday. ”
  4. Atiba plays full match, and Larin stays on bench, as Besiktas come back to draw 2-2.
  5. Individual ciekts for matches go on sale tomorrow, Dec 10: https://www.fifa.com/womensworldcup/organisation/ticketing/
  6. Well, you cannot say the club did not give him lots of chances earlier. Hopefully something will open up.
  7. A big consideration is that professional players do not have to be released by their clubs for youth tournaments. Many clubs are happy to do it in Europe, as many of the players are not even on the bench for their clubs, but many of our best youth players are. There are few brownie points for any club, even those in Canada, if they release thier players voluntarily for non-required duty to Canada's national sides.
  8. Prices announced today for City packages, regardless of teams (except for the France team). If you want to buy tickets to watch psecific teams, you will have to wait until after the draw. https://tickets.fwwc19.fr/sites/fifafem7.ap2s.fr/files/PACKAGES AND PRICES.pdf
  9.

  10. Hallie‏ @hals517 19 sept. Más What does “football family” presale mean? My third WWC to attend and I have to wait til public sale? And buy before knowing teams’ groups? 1 respuesta0 retweets1 Me gusta Responder 1 Retwittear Me gusta 1 FIFA Women's World Cup 🇫🇷‏Cuenta verificada @FIFAWWC SeguirSeguir a @FIFAWWC Más En respuesta a @hals517 Hi Hallie. - Tickets from 19/9 are for groups in French football family to purchase. - Public city packages available from 19/10. - Team Specific tickets available to apply for via qualified team Federations (post draw, 8 Dec). - General sale single tickets, in Spring 2019.
  11. 25 Euros for 3 matches would be great. We will see what the prices will be after the draw. So far, they are talking about just 3 matches in the same city, but maybe it will be team specific. We will see on Friday. from: http://www.xinhuanet.com/english/2018-09/20/c_137479937.htm "The FIFA Women's World Cup 2019 will be an amazing competition and we are working hard to ensure that a billion broadcast viewers tune in to follow all of the tournament action. I'm delighted that on Oct. 19, fans will be able to secure their seats to experience the FIFA Women's World Cup in France, a country with such a rich history of women's football," said FIFA President Gianni Infantino at the ticketing launch event. Prices will start at just under nine euros as part of a special 25-euro package allowing fans to attend three matches. "With ticketing offers including 25-euro packages to see three matches, the average cost of a ticket amounts to less than nine euros, which I believe illustrates how accessible this FIFA Women's World Cup will be to fans. "We hope that the French fans here and the foreign fans who will travel to France to attend matches will appreciate our efforts to make this competition accessible to everyone," said Noel Le Graet, French Football Association and Local Organizing Committee President." "
  12. The draw for the final tournament will be held on 8 December 2018. Cost of plane tickets going up fast with all the petrol increase due to mideast havoc, so might be a good idea to buy the tickets for over the pond now, and then look at domestic transport later depending on the draw. This will be a great tournament, so hopefully the match ticket prices (not yet announced) will not be too high (the downside of the growing popularity of the women's game, as the tickets used to be very affordable). An announcement as to tickets is supposed to be made on Friday: " Ticket Sales will commence on October 19, 2018. In the meantime, we kindly invite you to subscribe to our newsletters to receive the latest sales information for the FIFA Women’s World Cup France 2019™." but how can you decide what matches to buy before the draw? Hopefully , they will have some team-specific packages regardless of sites and the draw for teams already qualified, like Canada.. Cute canuckita on FIFA site:
  13. Okay, he certainly was not injured, he played 90 minutes the weekend after for Fulham. There was nothing less obvious. Coleman the coach clearly admitted it after, saying Fulham need him and he had to play some games as a coach. Of course, you need a compliant player to go along with the ruse. It is upsetting, as Australia at the time had the opposite attitude. If your club says you are injured, you fly to the other side of the world (4-5 tmes further than Canada) and prove it. Before this Australia was complete crap at soccer. With this change in attitude, look how much they rpogressed while we floundered. The crap from Canadians backing up this type of bs is why we have had problems, and continue to have problems. We deserve what we get.
