  1. I wish he had gone to Leeds when that was a rumoured opportunity. He would have a year in the Championship under his belt and be fighting to promote to the Premier league. Maybe he can go to Fulham who have just been relegated.
  2. I thought crepeau and Henry were good. Crepeau made some big saves and bailed the Caps out. The Whitecaps had way too many cheap turnovers. We could barely keep possession for more than 10 seconds at a time in the first half. The tram misses Davies; nobody close to his level out there. In the crowd people were buzzing about Crepeau — nice to hear positive comments for him.
  3. David and Cavallini were beasts. I was disappointed with Piette. A lot of wayward passes and he botched the pass back that led to the goal. He also held the ball too long and often just didn’t seem in sync. I would say it felt like watching a team that had not played often together, which they haven’t. Some great individual efforts but as a team it lacked cohesion. You can see there are some great moments but often there were some real gaps in the play. Also, was it me or does it seem like everybody was hitting the deck very easily. Either the field was too slippery or there was a lot of hacking.
  4. Arfield is injured, Johnson went off injured, Teibert didn’t even make the first 18 for the game today. Our stacked midfield is suddenly looking a little thinner before next weekend’s game.
  5. Besiktas have about 10 games left in the season. I would almost bet Larin isn't on the field for the remainder of that time. Off to the Dutch or Belgian league I bet.
  6. 1986 is so long ago that for many people it feels like it didn’t happen. Ask a kid playing soccer today. They can’t relate to 1986. These guys will be pioneers for literally millions of kids.
  7. Just bought tickets. Not in supporter section but we’ll be loud anyway! Bringing the whole family. LOTS of tickets left. I’m wondering if we’ll hit 10,000.
  8. An article says he’ll be making about 40,000 euro/month and his contract has no exit clause. Not sure the ins and outs of this but I assume this good for Milan. I wonder if this is an opportunity for Red Star to try and have one more run through champions league and then potentially sell Milan for a lot of money to a bigger club as he would still have a few years yet on his contract.
  9. Will Ricketts ever play for Canada again? He is behind: cavallini, Larin, David anyone else?
  10. I think it is good that he might make the 18 but what are the real prospects of him making it versus being loaned out? If he doesn’t crack the 18 between now and summer is it best that he go to a different league/team?
  11. Pacheco starting in Portuguese Primeira Liga. Up 1-0 at half. Call him up! (I’ve jumped on this bandwagon too - if you’re playing at this level you should be getting a call. I reckon it is higher that where Wotherspoon is with St Johnstone in Scottish Premier League).
  12. With today's loss in Champions League, Red Star are out of all European competitions for the year. Does this make a possible transfer to Borjan in January more realistic. He has shown that he is a good keeper. Might've won the league last year. Had a god run in Europe and at this point will win the league again. Not sure what more he can do for Red Star. he'd get more money and visibility in a big 5 league. Maybe mid-level Premier league? SerieA? Anyone know what his plans might be.
  13. I think Larin only plyed 58 mins. Not the full 90.
  14. But he's already done that, right? He's done those things you mentioned. He hasn't played Bocas. We see where CCL has got him. A good contract with TFC. This is great. If he wants to go somewhere further I suggest he moves to the next opportunity especially when people are seeking him out.
  15. which league gets him more exposure to Spain, France, Portugal etc. I would imagine playing in Copa Libertadores against the likes of Boca Juniors will give Osorio an amazing experience plus far more eyes on him than if he is playing against the New England Revolution in MLS or Saprissa in CCL.
  16. Just went back through soccerway's site and looked at the number of games Canada has played on an annual basis:. We only played four games this year! The last time we played so few games was 2001! I know we have a solid team on paper but they actually need to play together to develop cohesion and understanding of each other. Last night there were moments when some of the guys looked great together and others where it was painfully obvious that there has been no match play. There was no connection between players -- this was most obvious in the attacking end with passes going to the chain link fence in the corner or shots hitting the shipping container behind the net. This has to change if the team is going to progress.
  17. Hooray! Thank you both. So it was TSN screwing things up for me . . .
  18. Can someone put the link to the match with no results in a separate thread pretty please. Last game vs Dominica I tried to find the replay on oz And came across the score in the first 30 seconds of looking. Whoever did it would be as valuable as Davies and Herdman’s new drone that he uses for his practices and highlight videos! 😉
  19. thanks. good idea. I'll see if I can start it and then pause it and watch later.
  20. Is there any way to watch the match later on concacafgo WITHOUT finding out the score? I tried this last time with the Dominica match and I got the score right away when I was hunting around their site to watch it.
  21. I think it is interesting that they are spending the entire week in St kitts. I’ll be interested to see if this happens against the likes of Honduras, Panama etc. Obviously it is to acclimatize to heat and conditions. I wonder if the players have been asking for this to help them get ready. Training in Florida isn’t quite like training in El Salvador
  22. From BBC website! Liverpool 1-0 Red Star Belgrade Xherdan Shaqiri sends in the free-kick, but the eccentric Milan Borjan comes hurtling off his line to catch the ball on the bounce.
  23. I looked on Ticketmaster and based on that I bet we’ll get between 7000 and 8000. I think this type or a game against a minnow would have been a good chance to play in a smaller market where the men’s team rarely if ever plays. Halifax or St. John’s would have been good east coast options. They could have also hit Victoria or Winnipeg given it was a longer break. An extra couple of hours on the plane and a few more hours time change would not have been such a big deal given they don’t play until next Tuesday. Save TO, Montreal, Edmonton and Van for bigger opponents.
