Maybe we should coordinate some sort of "CPL away" section for the game at TD Place. Wear your Voyageurs, Canada or CPL gear, congregate together and cheer on the CPL team? It seems unlikely but a strong showing might move the needle a tiny bit.

I'm on board. Although I was already planning to buy a Valour or HFX kit and show up wearing that, just waiting to see who will be there.

Very emphatic win by the Fury last night 3-0 against Bethlehem moves the Fury into 6th spot with one or two games in hand with 4 of the 5 teams above them.

Fury moved into 4th place yesterday  with a strong win 4-1 over  Charlotte Independence  even after missing 2 penalties  this was a very good win, scoring for the Fury were Samb with 2 and  Fal and Christian with one a piece.  Fall and Samb missed the penalties.  Fury also have a one or 2 games in hand on the 2 teams above.  Fury's record is now    P 11 W 6  D 3  L 2  F  17  A 9  GD  +8  Pts 21

That is great news.  It will be interesting to see how HFX/Valour stack up against them.

I think the biggest difference this season is that the non-Canadian players brought in have been a significant upgrade from previous seasons (Fall, Samb, Ward and Francois).  Plus Gagnon-Lapare and Mannella have been very reliable in midfield.

So they're doing better on the field, but not off.
June 2nd, 2018, vs Charlotte - attendance 5,693
June 2nd, 2019, vs Charlotte - attendance 3,589

There may be weather factors to take into account though, considering there was a Tornado in Orleans!

The forcast for sunday was a 60% chance of rain with possible thunderstorms,  i had to go as i'm a volunteer with the Fury so i was prepared with pocho rain jacket etc,  and it was raining right up to the time i arrived at the stadium, by game time there was blue sky and by half time it was a very pleasant day and quite warm, i was told this was a window in the weather with rain coming again around 4pm with thunder storms although there was no mention of tornadoes. I was told the crowd was actually higher than what was expected, so hopefully they enjoyed the game and will come back.

The tornadoes were later, around 6pm, and out in the East, but it's close enough in time and location to have reminded me that the weather wasn't great.

When you say you were told the attendance was higher than expected, do you mean specifically because of the weather?

Is Manella getting any better? I caught some of the game today on youtube.  After all the CPL talk about guys that might get called up to CMNT, I thought I better catch some Fury action.  Irving looks solid, is there any chance Haworth can challenge for a RB spot?  Is TMG far off a CB call (or a impact recall), if we are calling young guys with limited MLS experience?

Nice to see Thiago score two goals today!

 

Didn't really rate him with the nasl.. He seems to like canada and stayed here after

Fury live on youtube right now.  Chance to check out Brian Wright and Laurent with Birmingham, plus see if Haworth really deserves a call at RB.

Considering how weak the CMNT is at right back, I think Haworth would warrant a look. My only concern is how he would fare defensively against better opposition, as I would not expect him to have anywhere near the same offensive importance as he does with the Fury.

Probably should have been called up for the pre-Gold Cup camp, but not sure he would have cracked the lineup.
