Just wondering, if Atletico Ottawa's colours are "Federal" red, "Rideau" blue, and "Blanc", then what are the official names of York9's colours? :))

Electric Green, Charcoal Green and Black on Black (I know, right?)

Looks like they've signed a Jamaican player. I wonder if it's Nicholas Hamilton.

It is. He confirmed it on Instagram weeks ago.

Y9 need to simplify the colours. The shade of green is great but the black needs to go and the charcoal grey should be a minor trim if anything. Just give me Julian Draxler/Kevin De Bruyne era Wolfsburg please.

The official club colours are green, grey, and black (branded by the club as "electric green", "charcoal grey", and "black on black"). These colours symbolize the region's nature (in tandem with the club's environmental focus) and Black Creek.

I remember hearing this at the time but had forgotten it.  This I found on their Wikipedia page.  

Try ordering any of these colours at your local paint store!

I really liked both kits last year.  Own the green!

I don't see them going away from the green kit this year.  I could see them going with a black kit over the white but I don't think they go one black and one white leaving out the green.  

Black with 9 thin vertical green stripes running from the shoulder down could look really sharp.

These Macron shirts are about 3 sizes too small imo. 

My xl is about the same size as a old TFC jersey. Maybe they updated the sizing.

Or maybe I’m just fatter than I like to think 😕 

I don’t think so though... I’m definitely festively plump, but I normally wear an XL TFC jersey pretty comfortably, but my XXL York 9 jersey is uncomfortably form fitted. Maybe it’s not so much a sizing issue as it is a fabric/design issue; the thing fits but it feels like a bloody pair of spandex leggings on my torso! Not flattering (on me at least).

If rumours are correct York9 signing a pretty decent young player who played with Aurora FC in League 1 Ontario last year and came through Aurora soccer from an early age, kids got loads of potential. Plays mainly as a right sided wide midfielder .

Backup for petrasso? 

I think Springer is still with the team. But they still need to sign a young defender.

"Festively plump" - I'm borrowing that.

Sadly, Macron sizes and fabrics are really not conducive to casual wear unless you're 5'9 and 160 lbs.

I think they've done a good job with the jerseys - they're nice looking - but it may have made more sense to go with a manufacturer with a more North American friendly shirt profile for the jerseys (if that option even existed.)

No one makes noise about this, but slim fitting is become discriminatory against men the way teen and young clothing is short on "larger" sizes for women who have fairly normal body types. 

I ended up buying an XL Whitecaps shirt last year on sale, and I am not big, 5'7'' and weigh 165 or so. That is ridiculous, it is too long (a bit of a miniskirt), but I feel more comfortable that way. 

Macron seems to have imported their model for rugby shirts, which are very tight and form fitting, into their football shirts.

Solid signing.  I agree with you that he will push Thompson for a starting spot.  Y9 has really done a good job at bringing in quality all over the pitch.  Looking at Cavalry and Forge last year they, were always able to bring in a strong replacements as subs or during injury.  This year there is going to be real competition for minutes which is a great thing for a team that really finished the last season strong. 

Doner is the only one that doesn't have a direct replacement breathing down his neck at the moment but I don't expect that to last.  Someone will be brought into push him.    This is a very strong off season by Y9.

I think Porter will be the backup RB. Y9 still has to fill a few u21 spots, i kind of wish the rule was for u23 players as the talent pool would be a lot bigger and you could grab players who just finished university.
