Montreal Thunder FC


Recommended Posts

Something more light hearted.  A CBC TV Drama 8part mini series about Montreal Thunder FC. Debuts 31st July.

Ok I admit the title is a bit misleading in the subject line. But this would be an interesting idea for CanPL if Montreal Thunder FC played in a "Canadian League" on a CBC Drama.

cheers everyone

Out of curiosity, did "Soccer Night in Canada" ever show up in the show?

I've seen the commercials and it looks like it's got some potential. I set up the series to record on my PVR last night. The commercial I saw for it last night seems to have said it's an MLS team. I assumed it would have been a fictional league, but anyways, looking forward to seeing it.

First I saw commercial I thought wow MLS paid for some of it or what? But in fact if you watch the commercial again the "New Coach" was MLS First Female Coach and Something something else....in the TV series I mean.

Anybody remember "He shoots, he scores?" 

My recollection is Quebecois softcore porn with a little hockey thrown in. 

I remember that, and he "scored" a lot.  Those were the days, with the Canadian Tire "Albert, Albert!" commercial a couple of times during each episode.

Watched two episodes already. That's quite the dysfunctional group of under 21s let alone soccer teams I've ever seen. Looks more like rec soccer. Perhaps this is the U21 team Ballou Tabla came from - it would explain his attitude.

So far my feeling is meh. Where did the writer come up with this drivle??? Seems like a bunch of Cdn perceptions thrown together. An ex Man U player as coach? And really what's the deal w the Scottish radio commentator? They could've just hired Brian Wilde who could use the work now or Rick Moffat "Goooooooooallllll!!!"
