    • Petrasso hasn't played RB for over a year. What is Wotherspoon doing at RW? Borges at CM?  
    • Nine years later, Ricketts scored again in Europe.  This time for Suduva away to SP Tre Penne in an early round EL Qualifier on July 23, 2019  
    • Tosaint Ricketts (MyPa) - August 5th, 2010 - EL Qualifying 3rd round 2nd leg Timisoara 3 MyPa 3 Two goals for Ricketts  
    • Stephen Ademolu (Tromso) - September 25, 2005   Galatasary 1 Tromso 1 A famous goal for Stephen, and his only goal in Europe.  Patrice Bernier also had an assist on the goal.  Hirschfeld was the keeper for Tromso on the day.  
    • Olivier Occean - Europa League Qualifying - July 16, 2015 He scored both goals for Odds in a 2-0 win away to Shamrock Rovers. His second goal came off of a fantastic header  
    • Apparently, he was approached by the CSA, but has rejected the idea of playing for Canada (google translate) https://ajansspor.com/haber/ferdi-kadioglu-teklifleri-reddetti-345716

    • 15 goals wouldn't get him anywhere near the golden boot in MLS anymore.  I like Cavallini, but I think the reality here is that he's the Whitecaps only big acquisition this off season (in part because they've mismanaged their DP spots, in part because they hired a sporting director so late, and in part because they still haven't proven they're not cheap) and casual fans spend the year scapegoating him for not doing more while saying "we spent $5 million on this guy I've never heard of?"  The team got 14 goals out of Kamara  and Montero (the first time around) for a fraction of the price, and casual fans are going to be expecting anyone they bring in for $5 million to do much, much more.
    • I think Wirth will be back. Probably Blasco and MacNaughton too.
    • Rant Alert. Interesting discussion. As to getting stadiums built in Europe just ask Norwich how long it took to have improvements made to Carrow Road or up in Aberdeen the decade long (+) plans for the move out of Pittordrie.  Not all smooth sailing in either case, for different reasons but still, there it is.  Sports are culture and I have no objection to public funds being invested into culture but there are of course limits to the value of any investment.   Here in Winnipeg the NHL only returned because certain incentives were offered which helped justified the private investment which spured that return.  Amongst other things a modern arena was of course part of that.  The "seed money" of those public incentives which included various forms of tax relief, amonst other things, are pretty generous by Canadian standards but I think, wouldn't even be a starting point for our American cousins in negotiations with government authorities.  So I'm going to guess we're getting it about right.  Doing just enough to get the private sector to stick it's neck out a bit. I'd also just like to point out a reality in my small mixed-income neighbourhood.  At the community level soccer is a profitable venture used to subsidize hockey and baseball.  This is a hard fact.  Tonight I could find you a dozen empty hockey rinks illuminated under floodlights within the same boundries of a community which will have exactly ONE pitch under floodlights this summer which will be shared with field hockey, soccer and grid-iron programs.   I mention all this to raise the simple point that this experience isn't logical on any level whatsoever.  I don't think it's generally unreasonable to expect any metro area in Canada to have a venue which could suit CPL needs.  Even if that venue were entirely publically funded.  We're not talking about billion dollar investments here.  It could be a mixed used facility. It doesn't really matter.  A modest venue/facility would have value to that community with or without CPL and we're well past due recognizing that.
