  1. First time since Lars in 2007 that a Canadian keeper is a team's definitive starter in Champions League. How about that.
  2. Started and played the whole first leg today at Partizan. Besiktas drew 1-1. Looked good in the first half, had 2 decent chances. Made a nice move in the box off a corner to lose his man (thank you Adrian Heath coaching?!) but shot it just wide of the post. Second half the ball never really came near him, maybe looked a bit sluggish but an ok outing overall. If Besiktas advance (which they look as they will), would it potentially set up the first time since Radzinski that a Canadian striker has started in Europa/CL group stage? Good stuff.
  3. Gent, Rangers and Besiktas all advancing today. Great day for Canadians.
  4. I'm not sure what's more impressive, the unflappable posting ability of tg11 or the resiliency of the lad(s) who is tracking down every post and leaving a confused rating on it.
  5. If it's to Ukraine, I'd be hoping it's Dynamo Kiev or bust. I don't see Shakhtar taking him on as they already have 3 or even 4 attacking options I'd rate higher than Larin in Fred, Marlos, Ferreyra etc. Plus they usually only play with a single striker up top, and there's no way he's taking any minutes away from Ferreyra, or even any of his understudies. Would just be Besiktas 2.0 log jam. Dynamo Kiev would be extremely intriguing however. They lost Yarmolenko to Dortmund a few months ago. If Larin joined right now he'd instantly be the second best attacker after Junior Moraes, or even a 1B...I could definitely see him taking some of his minutes away or even playing alongside him in a different formation. Kiev also is in Europa league, and just drew AEK Athens away in the first leg, so they have a real shot at advancing. Any other team in Ukraine would be a step down from MLS and just a waste of time. There is a massive drop in quality after Shakhtar and Dynamo Kiev.
