    Pacific FC Launch / 2019 off season thread

    Taught both Sam and Adam when they were in high school. Adam is now a teacher. His brother Andrew had a cup of coffee with the Timbers U23s (I think it was) and his Dad runs the academy at Reynolds.

    Gold Cup 2019

    Sir, you and 300 million of your compatriots have some serious homework to do on the meaning of facts. Isn't there an NRA forum you could be trolling instead? I hear that #trump on Twitter has some spirited "debate"...

    Get the Queen's engineers in town on the pole problem... They have lots of practice. I'm more interested in seeing what they do, if anything, for shuttles and park and ride options. Langford parkway is a very narrow single lane road with a couple of small roundabouts, and it's really the only way in to Westhills and I can see that being very congested even with only 3000 in attendance, let alone 8000 at some point in the future. Shuttles from a couple of pubs in town would be super, but even a parking agreement with one of the big stores nearby and short frequent shuttles would be helpful.

    Gold Cup 2019

    Hold on there, chicken. Don't think it's official yet. Highly likely, but not mathematically certain.
  5. Probably because, well, March. In Ontario. With a new field trying to seed itself. Not complaining. Will definitely round up another gang to take the ferry over for this one.
  6. Actually would have rather had David for Hoilett. Jr hasn't been great this half.
  7. Here we go. David hat trick in 10 mins.
  8. Yes Hutch! Beautiful ball from Rusty.

    There was one female fan at the end who was absolutely losing her s***. Couldn't see her, but you couldn't not hear her. Will be some kind of party on Turks and Caicos tonight I would bet.

    Definitely. Doesn't have any wild dogs on the field like Havana, though.

    Wow. Make that 2-0. Both pretty goals by Billy Forbes.

    Turks and Caicos up 1-0 against SVG. First goal Turks and Caicos have scored in 3 years apparently. Really enjoying seeing quality transmissions of games from really small venues and some of the Cinderella stories, although some part of me misses channel 5 Belize with Mad Dog and Maestro and Benny's commercials.

    What a Cinderella story that would be. I'm rooting for them. Up by 2 now on a wonder strike.
  14. I agree with those who have expressed concerns about Olivieri. Although recognizing that we have scant evidence, a) blaming the schedule in his interview was not only ridiculous, it was not even a clever excuse as excuses go and b) listening to the Martinique game, he struck me as a junior house league coach with his non-stop shouting. I mean, it's understandable I suppose that this is a group that won't have played together and won't intuitively know the system he wants, but these are all guys playing in pro environments who should be able to recognize without being reminded when they have gone from five to three at the back. If they can't, that's a big problem. As the coach you need to be able impart not only what you want tactically but that you expect players to show this awareness themselves on the pitch every minute of the 90. Apart from Baldissimo's master class in the first game, I didn't see the full-game maturity and awareness from this team, and I didn't see Olivieri acting as if he was expecting them to.
