A couple of articles with comments from Canadian U20 player Jonathan Lao, currently playing in Germany. Interesting take on the importance of playing abroad and the state of Canadian soccer. Plus, his take on the Honduras loss. Lets just say I hope his thought process is matched across the board for young Canadian players. http://lastwordonsports.com/2013/01/26/canadian-connections-jonathan-lao-on-the-importance-of-playing-abroad/ http://lastwordonsports.com/2013/01/27/hope-is-in-the-horizon-for-canadian-soccer/
So a couple of episodes back(not the last one but the one before that I believe) on footysoldiers they were talking about naming the teams and more than that sort of the club "mission statement"/"Identity" that would be the basis for each club. They mentioned "farmer johns" in regina and the regina regiment as well as privateers in halifax and how that can influence a team from the top-down so that there is always a clear purpose for how the team is going to play. Another example was the 86ers and how when they came in they said they were going to play BC guys and they were going to go for it in terms of scoring goals. I'll start off - I was thinking about Sigma Sauga - how the city is commonly understood as sort of a techhub/fortune 500 company hub and how sigma is a math symbol - this combined with seeing a tweet from the club recently where they were showing their youth players a slide show on tactics got me thinking. They could be known as precise and calculated tactically - it would go along with the Sigma thing as well as the general feel for the city. their mission statement could be something along the lines of "Our goal is to create intelligent, tactically aware players, who are capable of adapting on the fly different formations both from the opposition and from their own club, to give them a tactical advantage over the opponent - with the ultimate goal of winning, whether by defence or offence - by outsmarting the opposition". Thoughts?
Hello fellow V's, This "Monday Night Footy" chat has been an idea of mine for a long time now. This chat would start with a half an hour of chat about anything and everything in Canadian football (or soccer). This chat would have no guidelines and could go however you folks want it to. After that the final 30 minutes of the chat will be entitled the "Friendly Round" this will consistent of 6 questions (posted below) which you would answer for points. It would be similar to the Footy show's Take your Kick. To join in the chat, starting at 8:00 PM EDT please click this link: http://www.coveritlive.com/index2.php/option=com_altcaster/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=eadc7ce838/height=550/width=470 Rules & Regulations 1.

How did you celebrate Toronto FC's brilliant double after they won the Trillium Cup?
