  1. "The Premier Development League (PDL) Washington Crossfire have apparently had their rights in the league sold to an unknown group in Vancouver, BC." https://goalwashington.wordpress.com/2016/12/14/washington-crossfire-pdl-rights-reportedly-sold-to-group-in-vancouver-bc/

  3. The Vancouver Metro Soccer League was founded in 1973, and presently comprises over 150 teams and over 4000 registered players, referees and coaches, from teenagers to old-timers. As Western Canada's largest Men's League, it's membership consistently produces the top amateur men's teams in British Columbia across all age groups, as it continues to foster the most competitive amateur soccer in the Lower Mainland on a weekly basis.
  4. Hey I found a deal for a hotel room in Vancouver the room is book for Sept 5th and 6th. I'm looking for someone to split the cost with. I already booked the room it the hotel right by the pre party so I booked it early (it's now sold out) The room has 2 beds and I asked a few people I know but they all have places to stay. So if someone is looking for a hotel room I have another bed in my room. Just hoping to cut down some costs and hopefully help a fellow V. The 2 nights should cost about 200 each thought that's a damn good deal for a hotel 10 steps to where the pre party was the last 2 games, Contact me if you are interested and ill send you my cell number through a personal message on here.

  6. FIFA Elite Coach and Whitecaps Applicant; I can recommend Stephen Constantine's diligence & expertise. He is a knowledgeable, conscientious football coach of high calibre." MLS types are a dime a dozen these days Bobby.... looking for a multilingual Differentiator with global connections? Shortlist Stephen if he is still willing to visit.
  7. Reading some posts on an online article at mlssoccer.com on the subject of expansion. One comment in particular caught my mind, one reader stated that MLS expansion to Canada was a mistake and that the league should have expanded instead to other American markets. Division One soccer, such as MLS is, has been around since 1967, with a brief absence from 1985 to 1995. The arrival of the United Soccer Association (USA) and the National Professional Soccer League (NPSL) in 1967 harkened the arrival of “top flight” soccer in America, however teams in these leagues were not limited to the United States, with two teams (Toronto and Vancouver) in the USA and a second Toronto team in the NPSL, three of the twenty-two Division One teams that year were based in Canada. Even when the two leagues merged to form the North American Soccer League (NASL) in 1968, two Canadian-based teams remained. In fact, over the 17-year history of the original NASL, only two seasons did not feature Canadian-based teams (1969 and 1970). From 1971 to its final season in 1984, at least two Canadian-based teams were in the league every season (three in 1979, 1980 and 1982; and five in 1981). Despite the limited success of the Canadian members of MLS, their predecessors in the NASL actually faired quite well. On field, both Toronto (in 1976) and Vancouver (in 1979) won the Soccer Bowl Championships; and attendance-wise from 1979 onward Vancouver was consistently in the top three of attendance every year. Since entering MLS, all three Canadian teams have drawn consistently above the league average in attendance, something that cannot be said for many of the US-based teams. With stadia around 20,000 seats, they all have been drawing pretty close to capacity on most nights. The Montreal Impact even recorded the largest crowd outside Seattle last season when 60,000 watched the home town team play David Beckham and the Galaxy. I am sure there are many around the United States who believe that their leagues should stay in their cities, after all, outside of the Toronto teams in the NBA and MLB, the rest of teams in the big three are US-based. As for the NHL, US claims to that league can be easily challenged, while being founded in 1919; the first US-based team in the Canadian league was the New York Rangers in 1927. Shortly thereafter, however US-based teams became the majority. The point of the matter is this; Canadian teams in “US” Division One leagues have a proud and honourable history. Far from diluting the product or depriving more deserving markets of a franchise, these teams have proven themselves worthy and important parts of the league. One need only to look at the positive impact of the Cascadia Rivalry (featuring Portland, Seattle and Vancouver) has had on the league, or the regional rivalries that are growing between Toronto and Montreal with the Northeastern teams to appreciate the value this Canadian Trio brings to the league. Prior to the series of expansions from 2007 to 2011, which included the three Canadian teams, it is very realistic to say that MLS was stagnating, if not declining. Since the injection of the new franchises over this period MLS has found new life. Far from criticizing the league’s decision to welcome Canadian markets, which have held their own in the league, questions should be raised about certain long-standing franchises that continually underperform. Perhaps the ones keeping deserving markets out of the league are these clubs and not the ones on this side of the border.
  8. Ok, here is what I think Winter will go with based on what I have seen so far... It's a given that Frei will be in goal and that Attakora/Cann will be in front of him. I doubt De Guzman will be ready to play yet. I think Winter will want the full backs to get forward which most likely will be Omphroy and Gargan. Gargan to me is a no brainer at this point due to his experience in MLS and our lack of depth with experienced full backs at the moment. Winter will want a lot of passing of the ball and possession in the center of midfield and I believe that would be Zavarise, Bouchiba and DeRo. This is the position DeRo played successfully for Houston and this is the position he has been playing in preseason in many cases, basically playing just behind the striker and joining the attack late. On the wings I have Peterson and Martina. Winter will want them to make quick runs, cut into the center and either shoot or feed the main striker which I have has Maicon who to me is a no brainer.
  9. I was thinking about with all the recent news surrounding the caps in England(ie. paul barber signing, linked to keane, robbie savage, Haber and gage successful trials, and now the possibility of arsenal being linked with selgado), what the profile of the team is there? clearly it's not much, but is it more than other MLS clubs? I think Galaxy and Cosmos probably have the highest(relatively) profile, but could Vancouver be a close third? I'm too young to know but from what I hear vancouver was one of the highest profile clubs in Europe in the old NASL. maybe we just need a space inspired name. . .
  10. So what are the possible locations the caps are looking at besides burnaby lake? Paul Barber said they are looking for something within close proximity to the airport. I noticed on google earth that there is a huge piece of undeveloped land on the north shore of the Fraser between the Canada line bridge and Oak st. bridge(bottom of heather st.) Anyone know what this land is for(i'm assuming it's zoned for industry) or who owns it? It's been vacant for ages. It seems to me that it would be a perfect location for the caps' facility(within the city so it's close, relatively, to the downtown stadium and it's basically five minutes from the airport) any other potential sites? (I think i heard about richmond and of course Delta but I believe that deal is dead.)
