  • It’s been a difficult spring season for Valour FC in the inaugural Canadian Premier League campaign – there’s no denying that. For a team many expected to be competitive for the CanPL title right off the bat due to impressive depth in the front 6 and a plethora of quality individual talent, nothing seems to be working for Rob Gale’s side at the moment.

    One of those aforementioned quality individual talents is none other than former Montreal Impact player, Louis Beland-Goyette, who has been starting as the deepest midfielder all season long for the Winnipeg-based side – in a role known widely as the “regista”, or deep-lying playmaker.

    While Beland-Goyette brings some impressive vision to the table, which partners quite nicely with his high-quality ball-retention and tempo-keeping abilities, he did tend to struggle off the ball in the early part of the season, especially in those crucial moments when Valour were transitioning into their defensive shape, and the opposition attacked with speed.

    • https://northerntribune.ca/fc-edmonton-2021-preseason/   Where are the trialists and academy players 
    • Still scoring and putting in great performances for the reserves plus a hugely successful international debut and follow up match. Fingers crossed the break through will come in these last few games.
    • I personally don’t think it takes anything away from the goal. Who cares if it wasn’t as pretty as it could have been? I doubt there is a single Lille fan who celebrated the goal any less.  Did anyone celebrate Davies’ goal vs the US any less because it didn’t look pretty? No chance.    Edit: this isn’t directed specifically to you, Obinna. I realize you weren’t implying it did take away from the goal. I just happened to quote you to make the point. 
    • Sad reality of sports, hoping Neto recovers long term and this should be Theo’s chance.
    • Anytime I see his name it brings me back to reading his book called "The End of Poverty" while in southern Africa and wondering if the guy had ever actually left the US (yes I know he's actually well travelled but his views come across a bit too from Ivory Tower sometimes in my opinion.) He also makes me want to share this Ted talk every time: Basically the IMF has too much patronizing water under the bridge I think for Sach's proposal to work. But i suppose any attempt to help the world understand no one is an island when it comes to virus' is a good thing. 
    • From what he wrote about the move, he really missed his old job covering TFC.  I applaud the guts to try this but I doubt this is going to work.  At $50/year, he needs 1K subscribers to make a livable income.    I won't be subscribing but I'll keep an eye out if there's something that's a must read and I must pay for.  I came to like John as the years passed and he matured/mellowed.  Much more so than his early days when he was an insufferable eurosnob who could barely contain his disdain for Canadian soccer even though was employed to cover it.  He just loved it when Canada slipped up.  He even called Arfield a "mangiacake" among the numerous times he would hurl that at people on twitter.        
    • And James stayed on the bench for Lamia.  And Brym doesn't make the bench for Mouscron. And Flores no where to be seen for Arsenal U23.
    • Yes! Monty Python and SCTV made me who I am today.  That and Soccer Saturday.    I knew I came to the right place...
