Match Thread: June 4th, 2019 Forge vs Cavalry (Voyageurs Cup 1st leg)

Recommended Posts

This should be an interesting tie, are Forge now positioned to hand Cavalry their 1st loss, can they continue their string of impressive results? Another 2-0 win would set things up nicely for the away leg, I thought Forge should have had a result last time at THF, squad rotation has been impressive but Cavalry are coming off a bye week, another decent match up!

Yeah. Real shame they got paired so early. Would have liked both to get to face MLS clubs. Will be a cracking set of ties though. The forge sleeping giant or dragon I suppose is definitely waking up now.

A fairly good forecast compared to some of the match days we've had;  https://www.theweathernetwork.com/ca/hourly-weather-forecast/ontario/hamilton?wx_auto_reload=

This was the extra ticket given to STH due to the inaugural match being free, I was also able to secure a couple of complimentary tickets offered by the club, this is a big match and will go a long ways in determining who gets to take on The Caps, I hope there is a good crowd!

I got the two complimentary tickets, but didn't realize that they had also already allotted me my two season ticket seats. Guess I have to convince a few more friends to come

Rotation will be interesting with Forge. Haven't heard any injury update with Novak, but I hope to see Zajac given a chance in the middle up top and maybe Choineire starting.

This is going to be a real marquee matchup.  Game time weather is 20 degrees with no rain for once!

My tickets are with my best friend so he can take his whole family tonight because both his kids wanted to go.  It will still be great to watch from home or I may buy a walk up set.

Is the ball just filthy from the rubber pellets in the turf or did someone think that a grey ball on a green surface would add an element of mystery to the game for those watching on their computers?

If it is the former, someone should grab a fresh match ball.

Welp, this game had everything that makes it hard to try to start watching this sport.

Penalties for guys falling over their own feet.

No explanation about what penalties are for.

No replays to try to figure it out, or even if you know what is for to decide if you agree, or even see a better angle.

Arbitrary time added that they don't even show OR keep the clock counting, so you can't even tell how far into mystery time you are. 

Seems like a coaches challenge or something would be useful. 

Frustrating....

PK was a clear and obvious foul, and correct red, anyone with half a brain can see that. The  added time was technically fine because the play was in motion as 93th minute began and the PK was awarded 20 seconds after the 93rd minute. So yeah stop being a baby, if you cant then go cry in silence.

Yeah, sorry.  

1- That was a penalty.  Full stop.

2 -  No ref is going to blow down the play in that situation as the clock hits 3 minutes.  Play was actively happening in the box and almost all ref's will let that play finish.

3 - Anyone who watches footy knows what the penalty was for - the player got the ball and the keeper took him out.

Hmm, I couldn't tell any of that. I'm pretty new to watching soccer. I couldn't see what happened and there was no replay to show. Or clock running on the scoreboard. It was stopped at 90 in-stadium

Well, for a newbie you have a remarkably perceptive take on how football matches are timed!!

Soccer isn't going to change to fit your tastes. The penalty was for Roberts' absurd studs up challenge on Malonga and it was a red card because it took away an open goal.

On a completely unrelated matter, there is no way that Zajac is pronounced "Zay-Jack" in the context of a Polish surname. Embarrassing to have an announcer making zero effort in what is supposed to be a multicultural society. Found this after minimal googling:

I’m poland it’s projounced Zah-yontz, but I can guarentee you Marcel himself pronounced it Zay-jack, most polish surnames are Anglicized and pronounced in the “incorrect” way in North America.
