    • I also said similar things. Let’s hope that they get the message! (I am glad that they appear interested in identifying the challenges facing the club, and maybe shifting strategies) 
    • Match replays are now separated by league and week..better..guess its by calendar week since under cpl they have 34 weeks and starts at week 18
    • Nothing official so far that I can find but around 4800 was announced in the stadium apparently based on what has been posted in other threads.
    • Guidelines for this thread In this thread post match updates on all Canadians abroad for August 23 -August 29, 2019. If you find updates posted in some other thread then post them here as well, but be sure to credit the original poster. If there is news that is particularly significant (eg. someone scores a big goal, someone gets injured, etc.) then feel free to begin a new thread on that topic in order to draw greater attention or start a discussion, but also post that news here. Some comments on news posted in this thread are okay, but let's not let this thread go off into a long discussion. If the news already appears in another thread (as per the previous bullet) then post your comments in that other thread, otherwise if you want to say something significant or if it is likely to generate replies then begin a new thread.
    • Note to Premier Ford, anyone in Ontario needing a heart stress test should have been given a ticket to that game. While Forge certainly had their chances, I don't know how many times a ball went sailing through our goal area and we expected an Olimpia player to be there and just tap it in. Funny to see the highlights and not see the Olimpia shot that dribbled just outside the post. It was NOT a relaxing game to be at. I thought Frano was an early player of the match for Forge, until he gave up the penalty. He was breaking up so many plays through midfield. And about that penalty, so happy the ref didn't have it replayed for Henry's movement from the line. Nowak (I've decided to spell it with a "w" even though I pronounce it as"v") did look gassed as the game went on but you can't expect a centre forward to be the only one pressing and not run out of steam. I recorded the game on TSN but only watched a little bit when we got home. Not impressed with having a US feed. Nice temperature of 78 at kickoff, but I thought being at the game a while back when it was 37 was oppressive. And, did you know, Forge's gk Henry is from Ontario. And the half-time show is about rivalry between Toronto FC and Montreal Impact with no Forge-Olimpia match discussion. Maybe I should just be happy that the match was televised.
    • I'm pretty sure I admitted my ignorance on competition format/game calculation up front. But thanks for reminding me . . . I guess.  I'd also like to see a single season, one table, home-and away set-up. As for extra games, I could see a short play-off series being done once we get to 12-16 teams (maybe the top six or eight teams in a single-elimination format?). My only qualification on that would be weather. If we continue to have the season run through late October, it'd be getting pretty chilly by the time a play-off series finished and a champion was crowned. 
    • I thought Henry played quite well even without having made the penalty save. He has come a long way from the first leg against Antigua when I got anxiety every time the ball went even remotely near him
    • In fairness it's not like it was like for like. At the time MAK was primarily playing LB for TFCII. The fact that the coaching staff couldn't figure out his best position is a whole other issue entirely
