    Those in season form will have an edge... without a doubt. Voted Hoyle as well

    I predict higher scoring games to begin as teams aren't 100% cohesive yet. Hoyle 17 goals, book it.

    Brilliant night tonight at TYC, first class !
    I was there 5 minutes after the door opened and it was PACKED.  
    Ownership did a bang-up job on this one, full credit.  Food, beer, players, mascot, merch, ..........even the wife was happy.
     
    Without a doubt, Valour have the best jerseys, home and away !

    If Louis Béland-Goyette signs we have to add Louie Louie to our songs for when he’s subbed on.

    Been meaning to post this for a few days... a little insight for those of you who aren't from the Peg. And... well... a salve..of sorts. for those who are. (And apologies, I try to keep the word count down normally)
    Winnipeg Football Club has been around a long time. It is a publicly owned entity with a board of directors, and a president. None of these are association football people. To the people in charge of the club, yes, this is largely a side show. For the most part. According to one source I have, Wade Millar is on board. Unfortunately, the board is not.
    While some of Valour's actions might seem... greedy -  for a lack of a better term - compared to those of the other clubs, we have to understand that trying to get a gridiron football club, to do soccer, in a soccer way, is a bit like trying to turn the Titanic. It is going to take time, and patience. Personally, I don't think they are doing half bad, all things considered.
    That being said, while we may be a bit pooched, in some respects, in the ownership side of things (aside from a sweet field), we are more than blessed on the footie side of things. Galey is a right proper coach, with long experience in the game at a high level -  if we take into account his time as a youth at Fulham. What's more, he has lived in the Peg a long time, and I don't think he harbours many illusions about the situation he, and his team are in. Though I will cease further conjecture about what the gaffer may or may not think.
    At the end of the day, we have a unique situation compared to the other teams in the league. We don't just have to win over the fans, we have to win over the owners. So far, from what I have seen, we will be able to do just that, though not until balls start getting kicked, and goals start getting scored.  I do worry that the attendance numbers will not be there at first. Perhaps that is the perpetually pessimistic Pegger in me.
    In closing. To the disillusioned few, may I offer the following words of comfort, as ubiquitous with summer in these parts as mosquitoes and mayflies... "its the Bombers... what the fuck did you expect?"

    Just bought a couple tickets in the supporters section for some friends. We absolutely need to make this the best off field experience possible in order to make casuals/doubters come back. One of the main reasons they decided to come is because I always send them videos of supporters sections jumping up and down with smoke and everything .. hopefully we can replicate that in our own way!

    You have inspired me to do the same.  Going to ask my niece and nephew and their significant others.  Calling it a house warming gift.
     
    Just picked up 4 additional tickets in section 106, row 4.

    Funny story, today I entered Junior Kingue’s contest on Instagram (see his Instagram story). I ended up winning and he’s sending me cleats! Anyways I just find his situation funny because he’s very present on social media. I was hoping to talk to him while playing and ask him questions.. unfortunately he didn’t have his microphone on!

    My favourite memory from tonight’s match was while watching it with my 5 year old son and he turned to me and said “I want to be a Canada player!”  
    We sang Oh Canada together. Celebrated the goals together. And dreamed of him suiting up for Canada together in the future. This is why playing matches and having them televised is important. 
    *ironically all done while wearing the Northern Ireland top my wife put him in earlier today to wind me up. Haha so proud.

    I’m not sure if anyone has mentioned this or not but you can watch all games for free if you have a BET 365 account.
