    • So the coach has no responsibility in putting on a finesse attacker to defend a two goal lead? Or was he just trying to give him a runout? My watching him at Barcelona B, he learnt to defend rigorously and always track back, so much so that it affected his attacking play, he was even top of the box on corners against. But because he trained to do this. So I am not sure if he was properly assigned his task. Just saying, as I think that if you want a player, and train with a player, and have any idea who that player is, you use him accordingly.
    • Berahino was playing behind or at least off him for most of it. He was the point of the spear as they say.  Generally looked very good, still with a lot of pace and power.  Very nice pass for the assist. He and  Berahino look like they have an understanding and it was just a goal celebration, but looked to be getting on from that as well. Could be a very productive year.  
    • Coming off now but they trusted him at 2-1, even after a yellow, which is a good sign.
    • I think it will be Valour 2 FCE 1, with both Valour goals coming in the second half.   TBH, last game against Forge I thought Valour looked the better team. They were dangerous most of the match, and really only fell apart after the non-offside goal. Also, my mind is in next-year territory, so I'm interested in seeing how the younguns progress over the next two months. 
    • Y9 need to be better in the final third.  It must be frustrating for everyone right now, players and coaches. Errant crosses, not being able to find that final pass and lack of finishing have Y9 further down the table than they ought to be.  Brennan and the coaching staff have put together a solid squad that is really exciting to watch. Don't know why they don't try to shoot games from the other side the field though. The game experience is great and the club has come out with all kinds of ticket deals which are great.  This club is doing a lot of the right things within the community, it really does have a local feel to it.  I don't have any doubt that once they get out of York University and into their own stadium you will see a stronger marketing campaign for the team.  
    • What were other key points from the event? I was unfortunately unable to attend...
    • Telfer is an odd one for Canada. A great example of how far our talent pool has deepened.  At 25 he could certainly still push on further talent wise. With that in mind I would hate to lose him.  On the other side of the coin we have so many options for where he plays and more coming through.  I'd hate to see him go but also wouldnt blame him, much like welshman and Robert's. 
    • Interesting they are playing at least two strikers in Larin and Berahino that have traditionally only worked best as lone strikers.  Glad he is getting minutes. If he gets minutes the form will return.
    • I've just realized that in 9 home matches thus far, Valour have scored exactly 4 goals that were not penalty kicks: A bolt of lightning from Calum Ferguson, two Tyler Attardo headers, and one from Michele Paolucci. Plus four penalty kicks, all scored. Honestly, the opposition should just leave us alone in the box, we are much better from the penalty spot!
    • I'm reading Berahino scored and Larin asissted.  Either way drawing a penalty and scoring or assisting the other is positive for him especially since his team seems to be doing alright right now.
