It's amazing how Terry Jones has been writing the exact same column for eight years now.

I think the clutch has been slipping in his brain drivetrain for a while now. Easy enough to keep saying the same/similar **** about the Oilers and Esks over and over but if you have to put some thought into something new or different then it is a bit harder to climb the slope. Should just retire or shut up and let Derek van Diest write about our kind of football.

How would those that follow Edmonton more closely rate this current team to Edmonton teams of the past?

Both are/were frustrating. Hard to compare NASL days with more budget and more internationals than now. Also too new to rate current version as I hope their **** will start to gel into something more productive.

 REB is probably the highest paid player on the team. Doesn't even look like he's more than an depth guy.  

Let's see this starting XI.

Starting 11 next match should be 3-5-2 (James GK, Moses, Didic, Soria, Esua, Khabra, Marcelin, Allen Zebie, Bruno Zebie, Ongaro, Velado)

Maybe the Eddies can bring back Lance Laing from San Antonio to jolt the offence like he did in the NASL days.

He provided speed, service to the guys up front, and goal scoring, something the current team desperately needs.

Tennis-Borussia Berlin should have been a hint to FCE management that his recent form wasn't what got him his CMNT caps and that he may not be prime foundational player material at this stage of his career.

I think FCE should probably quit with the "bring back old NASL players". It doesn't seem to be working thus far

Don't think its not working because of the few NASL players they brought back, but more so the coaching staff and the type of game they have the roster trying to play. Their front liners need service, something Laing has proven he can bring to the table.

Does anyone know how much REB is making?! Seems likes hes been on vacation away from the team for the last three weeks. 

I dont think anyone knows what anyone is making.

SNIFF SNIFF???  Did anyone check the expiry date on this guy??  He wasnt all that great with Van 2 years ago.  Still, its a very high profile signing.  Edmonton needs something to get some fans out.

Been pretty impressed with Ongaro lately. He's on 6 goals in 13 games which is impressive but he is strong with his feet for such a tall lad. 

I'd almost call him a rich man's Marcus Haber haha. 

Anyway he should be called for our U23's IMO.

This is wild, I thought he would be an amazing signing but figured if an MLS team hadn’t grabbed him he was retired.  Not old and was a Cameroon international.

He is also a 1-time capped US international.

I think that would make him the first American with a national team cap to play in the CPL.

And he is also famous for getting a red card after scoring his only TFC goal. It was an odd decision by one of those fabolous MLS refs.
