    Have not seen it but Millar has scored for Killie. 1-0. Ends 2-0 he goes 87 minutes. Cool as you like on the finish for the goal (thanks Aird25)

    Hi Don, maybe you can start by not discriminating against Canadian players in your own league? OK? Thanks.

    Cyle Larin

    Hey, I am happy to rip Larin a new one when it is deserved, but that is a good play. He passes it to the mid, sprints past 2 defenders to receive the ball in space, and then cuts it back way across the box to give B an easy finish. In my books, that is a solid play by Larin.

    Forge FC Season Thread 2019

    Just wanted to shout out to the Forge organization and administration. Everytime I have contacted them with a question they respond almost immediately. I have also had to change seats or games a couple times this year and they have always accommodated no questions asked. Everything from the product on the field, to game day experience, behind the scenes, and the pregame $5 draught beers has been top notch.

    I'm not getting this call for more league matches. To my mind, given the length of our playing season and participation in cup fixtures high twentys-low thirties seems to be the ceiling if we're to have a salary capped league. Regardless of the number of teams in the league. I love (really love) the idea of a balanced schedule but when this venture gets to 10,11, 12 teams (and it well) the scheduling is going to get awkward. In my perfect world match spacing would be more consistant. I'm sure that would be part of the CPL's perfect world to but with Forge and Valour sharing venues that just adds to the difficult come high summer and into the fall.

    Well, the number of people who pay to watch English football both live and on TV would seem to put you in a small minority. That is how it works in most of the football world where the sport is quite popular. Cup competitions provide the "sudden death" drama you crave, so in football you can have your cake and eat it too. Without the need for play offs.

    He played VERY well. Made some very crucial big tackles in the box to save them. Was involved in the attack a lot as well.

    CPL new teams speculation

    Which crowd are you refering to as " announced crowd of 1200 in Victoria"? Last two (not including today which has no # yet) were : Sept 4th.....2124 Sept 11th...2384 As for Forge FC, we don't know what the new config will be capacity wise, the club has averaged about 6K without the inaugural match. New Capacity will likely be 6-7K and they can open sections as needed easily for more demand. Makes sense to conscentrate the fans on one side for the atmosphere and broadcast optics so tweaking the stadium config is a good move imho and theres still flexibility. Your freebies comment is conjecture not fact. All leagues have games where attendances look very sparse because of weather, weekday scheduling, etc. and I've posted pics of some examples this summer from USL and MLS.

    Sometimes ugly wins are good - especially as we head into play the US. I thinks we have suffered from overconfidence in the Haiti game, and perhaps a strong result would have done the same against the US which will require a complete game. With Airfield, Holliett and Cavallini back it should be a pretty amazing game against the Yanks - looking forward to the next series.

    Herdman new head coach

    So, you would prefer that they keep that under wraps then and go on a twitter blackout leading up to the game? Or should we go back to what we've always done in terms of preparation, and not entertain new ideas to perhaps get a different result? Seems like when this is the complain, we've run out of things to complain about.

    Jordan Hamilton

    Not sure when his contract expires, but I think he should consider going overseas, possibly Scandinavia. You see the success Adekugbe is having with Valerenga. Hamilton has accrued much more MLS experience and despite never nailing down a starting spot, he's scored a fair number of goals. I think Norway would be a good launching pad for him, as would Sweden or Finland, though Denmark would likely be tougher. He needs to go where he can get minutes. Hamilton is one of those players who I wouldn't reccomend go to the CPL. Even if he scored buckets of goals, I don't think his stock will raise that much in our domestic league. I could be wrong, but considering the experience he already has in MLS and USL, I think he should try a lower level European league.

    Luka Kulenovic

    Luka is a 19-year old (born in Toronto) who signed with Osijek II in the Crotian 2nd tier last month. He played in the last 30 minutes or so in the Osijek match today, and also featured on the weekend. Last season Luka was with Zeljeznicar BL in the B&H 2nd tier. He scored 13 goals in 28 matches. Previous to that, he was with Trencin U19 in Slovakia.

    Herdman new head coach

    Back to the topic. If we can win our series vs. the US we top our group. If we match them, and they do not get the results we did vs. Cuba, also. That is a good place to be in I would say. Because we play them at home just after their first Cuba match, more rested than they are and likely with them resting players vs. Cuba to prep for us; and then the same in November, us at home and then away to Cuba, their scheduling is not overly conducive to running up the score vs. Cuba or having it easy against us.

    Still had about 3500 there almost id say with about 1500 was killie fan a very good traveling fan base. Spfl is a crazy league for attendance. Killie can get 12000 when the old firm come to play(5-6000 regular home gate) and Ibrox is always good for at least 30000 even against less popular teams. The old firm derby today he 60000 then you get teams like St Mirren or Ross county that are lucky to get 4000 and everything in between. The football is the same a mixed bag. The derby today was a crazy game...

    We cannot forget that Milan Borjan is playing regularly, and routinely plays in the Champions League. With respect to Crepeau and Carducci, he is playing at a far higher level.

    Mark-Anthony Kaye

    Good game from Kaye. He is very brave with his forward passing. Not afraid to make mistakes. Very strong on the ball, does not get caught in possession, but his passes do get picked off at times. An aerial threat on set pieces. Very patient on the ball and excellent vision. Great game tying assist today. He can play anywhere in the midfield, but asking him to play more conservatively as a defensive mid, basically covering for Oso and Arfield, would be a waste of Kaye's talents. At this point I'd start Kaye beside Arfield, with Hutch or Piette or Teibert behind them. Given Kaye is starting regularly for the 1st place team and Osorio is not starting regularly for a mediocre TFC, I think Kaye has won his spot for the fall fixtures.

    For what it's worth, York9 sent out an email this afternoon indicating that STH renewal info will be announced in the coming weeks. --- In August, we sent out a fan survey because we wanted to hear from YOU, the supporters. We received a tremendous amount of feedback on our season, our stadium, what is expected of us next season and beyond. And for that, we thank you. We want you to know that you've been heard, loud and clear, and you'll start to see some of those changes as we move into our Season Ticket Renewal phase in the coming weeks. You can also expect a call from your Season Ticket Representative shortly, just to ask for any other feedback on our Inaugural Season. A club is nothing without its fans, and we cannot thank you enough for your support. We look forward to continue growing this club with you for years to come!

    Herdman new head coach

    I was never a big fan of Herdman, but people need to get over that we didnt win by enough. If before both games we knew we would get 6 points, 2 clean sheets, and a +7 goal difference not too many people would complain. Would everyone be happier if we had won 4-0 and 3-0? The US basketball team, albeit their G/H? team isn't even goin to medal at the World Cup. Just because you are better on paper you will not dominate every game at international level.

    CPL new teams speculation

    Isn't any kinda information outside of the league and team officially announcing considered pre mature? Isnt that the whole point of the tweet? And isn't someone in the know calling it premature actually then confirming the information is correct but saying the information is being released premature to when people actually wanted the information released.

    General - CONCACAF Nations League

    On big soccer some are talking about calling a B+ squad against us. I wish they would. Some also see it as development first and winning second. I don’t think GB will see it that way, but we have more at stake than they do and that is a fact. So we’ll see how that suits us. Not to get over confident, but I can see us surprising them at home, perhaps jumping out to an early lead and hanging on for a win. I think their centre backs are going to have trouble with David and Cavallini. Davies is going to cause problems, but they’ll be ready for that, much like we will plan to contain Pulisic (or at least try to). I am not convinced by the back line of either side, so I can see this one being a high scoring affair. The return leg will be much tougher and probably a lot more cagey, both sides having gained experience against the other. The optimist in me wants to predict a draw, but a close 1 goal loss is what I expect. Both sides will beat Cuba, but by how much? As mentioned, we have more to play for than them, so perhaps we can put more goals past Cuba than them. If we split with them and beat Cuba by more, we are on our way to the final round in June, where more points, which we desperately need for the hex, are on the table.

    HFX Wanderers Season Thread 2019

    Some "stunning" tidbits on how well HFX is doing while the CFL group is fumbling according to this CBC article. A sports economist says the backers of a proposed CFL franchise in Halifax should take a page out of the playbook of the HFX Wanderers FC to get more public support. "That team has almost immediately built itself into the fabric of the city," said Moshe Lander, who spends part of the year teaching at Dalhousie University in Halifax. After spending May and June in Halifax, he said he was "stunned" by the number of people he'd see out in the Spring Garden Road area every night wearing Wanderers jerseys and scarves. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-scotia/atlantic-schooners-cfl-franchise-halifax-hfx-wanderers-fc-1.5262867

    Complete with low angle, wide lens pics of the stands at different times of the game. Plus any info on whether the were any free bees. I'll start counting the blue dots on ticketmaster and we can match them up to individual people we see in the stands. Oh and someone should check the redditt boards and report back on any rumors they see there.

    And if he doesn't do it himself (which, being honest, is entirely possible) we have a supporting cast very capable of smashing a few in to take care of business. Having said that, I hope Tesho sees the field for at least a solid 20-30 minutes.

    Didn't score. I was actually reasonably impressed from what I saw though. He didn't look raw, which is good. He was comfortable and confident with the ball at his feet. Took on some defenders. Looked very energetic. Ran down defenders a lot. Also tracked back very deep , twice collecting a loose ball and at 1 point bringing the ball all the way to the box. Small sample but looked good. Hopefully gets more opportunities.

    He also provided the assist for the first goal. His goal was something else though. JD's finishing ability is probably the best I have ever seen from a Canuck.
