The fact that they are moving to MLS means that the clubs entire outlook will change. It's like being in the Championship and being able to commit to youth and not worry about winning because you know you'll be in the Premier League in two years. For Montreal, it's all about MLS, and being prepared to make a real big splash in that first season.

its making room for Ali G., hopefully! With the budget that the IMFC has it is unacceptable for them to make at least to the semis even if it is hard to convince the most sought after players of the second and third division team to sign for a USSF div 2 team. That said, i hope the "Montreal MLS" has begun working on building a front office for the soccer operations because there is no way NDS and his people can build something decent for 2012.

Wes Charles is still kicking around?

He was training with the Caps to stay in shape but he wasn't in their plans. I guess they want to look at who might make it to MLS next year. Mr Charles is a bit slow but has some very good qualities like excellent touch, great in the air and a very imposing pressence in front of his goal. He could help you out in solidifying your defense.

Impact will announce signing of Ali Gerba

Rue Frontenac learned that the Impact were able to allow themselves Monday to dismiss the disappointing(ed?) attacker panamanian Roberto Brown because the discussions with the Quebec

attacker Ali Gerba concluded themselves to a positive solution.

It would remain only some small details to regulate for montreal to announce the return to the athlete of 28 years old, represented by the agency act-sportsgroup.

This agency represents several of the better Canadian players, of which attacker Rob Friend, Local product of Quebec Fabrice Lassonde, Jonathan beaulieu-bourgault and Patrice Bernier as well as the defender André Hainault and the keeper Josh Wagenaar.

Ali Gerba already did some stays in the shirt of montréal During the seasons of 2000, 2003 and 2005.

Seen by some who watched recent training sessions of the Impact, Gerba distinguished himself, some observers remarked, by his marking (edit: marqueur doesn't mean marking does it??)instincts that placed him clearly ahead of current Montreal attackers Eduardo Sebrango, Peter Byers (recently demoted to the Academy of Impact) as well as recently dismissed Roberto Brown.

A document produced by the agency act-sportsgroup mentions that "Ali Gerba marked 15 goals in 29 games with the senior national selection of Canada" and that he registered 10 in 16 games with Milton Keynes, third English division(division 1), during the season of 2008-2009.

A subsequent stay with the FC Toronto was not so remarkable since Gerba registered a single goal in five games before he was shown the exit door at the time of the training camp preceding the current season.

It is probable that Impact agreed to the Quebec attacker a going contract until the end season 2011 that indeed, and by far, leaves the player the best paid of the team. This is the price to pay to put the club back on the path to success while starting to solve the anemic offensive problem of production (13 goals in 15 games).
