  1. How can they vote on Wednesday specifically if the HPL isn't announced until Thursday?

    Thoughts from Hart in Kingston

    I expect to see Gold Cup moved to a January schedule in the near future same as Africa and Asia. This will accomodate MLS, which should be, along with Mexico, Concacaf's priority.

    PDL Coming to Hamilton

    I have no doubt this was already discussed, but uh....does Hamilton even have a hill over 500 metres? Let alone a mountain?

    Hoilett: CAN, JAM, USA and yes ENG

    I'd tend to agree with ya! But I'd suggest not bringing them here for the purposes of Canada, but just to make the MLS teams better. Just like Frei, if he so choose when the time comes he could be capped by Canada. Same situation.

    Hoilett: CAN, JAM, USA and yes ENG

    No surprise. I don't understand these guys....one marquee player commits and others will, then all of a sudden you have an excellent team!
  8. Your use of exclamation marks tends to suggest you might be conflicted between how you feel and what you write?
  9. Is it safe to say you are excited?

    Footy Show boys discussing supporting Canada

    Not one of my u11's (I think 24 were at training) knew the Canada result....
  11. It's no discussion gator. Don't put the score in the thread titled.

    No wins for young soccer players?

    +1. My assistant coach keeps asking me "why aren't we learning tactical positioning?" To which my response is - do you think the tactics in 8v8 are the same as 11v11? And he says "but they'll get the basics." I say "show me a kid that's going to remember the tactics you teach on a Thursday night come game time on Saturday" and realizes he can't. But he keeps asking me anyway.....he won't be assisting next year!

    No wins for young soccer players?

    I coach in a u11 league in BC. It is top tier. We did not keep scores in the first half of the season. We did keep scores now in the second half as a "cup" season. The first half was 10 games. the cup is 5 games. What have I noticed? My teams have been playing exactly the same way. Pass pass pass pass. We lost most of our exhibition games. Now in the cup we are undefeated (all 3 teams I run) barring 1 game, and I have noticed our opposition playing for victories rather than development - and teams that were playing passing games are now just "run!" "pressure!" "kick!" all game long and as a result they can't get the ball off of us. I only know of 1 u11 league in BC that keep scores (Surrey Metro District). u12's keep score. u10's do not anywhere that I know of except maybe Surrey (but they might not either. I am not sure). Keeping scores takes away from the creativity.
  14. Only got to see the first half, the goal against, and the last 10 minutes. Edgar is showing why he isn't playing in the powership. Atiba is the man! De Ro has every right to be a part of this team on this performance. That was an excellent performance and on another day we get a result. Someone said in another thread that "if we lose because our left back is weak I have no issue with that because our proper left backs are unavailable." Well, our left back was of course the cause for the goal against. Straith isn't a left back and so I have no worry there (but what a finish by the Greek player). Anyway, we can be very happy with that performance! I am very interested to read your guys' comments on the 2nd half as I missed all but 10 minutes. Especially on the new guys. Pacheco looked comfortable in the last 10 minutes though!
