  1. Wow, if we have to play our national cup final in another country... ūü§¶
  2. Surprised there's not more outcry about this decision. The VCup is more than just a ticket to the CCL.
  3. Hey guys, first post of mine in like 10 years! The trophy's looking a little long in the tooth. How can we push to make sure that's it's taken care of? The maple leaf tags have fallen off and the base is a bit busted up. Picture taken from here.
  4. Any inkling what the format might be with 2 semi-pro teams, 8 CPL+USL + 3 MLS?
  5. For the unused season tickets: we created a FB group for our section in MTL where people can buy/sell their ticket(s). No intermediary.
  6. I'm actually shocked that we're not looking at 8 turf surfaces! PFC, Calgary and HFX going with grass.
  7. Jackpot! --> http://www.flickr.com/photos/canadasoccer/sets/?&page=3

  9. This is Canada and soccer, so we'll likely get the group with Guatemala in it... As for accountability and visionary appointments, I bring you this moment: Dale Mitchell, 0 points, 0 goals at home for U20 WC. Promoted to senior team coach. The CSA doesn't have any other candidates, unless they grab a Thordarson or a (jinx?) Marc Dos Santos... and would that be an improvement?
  10. He's got "potential", which is what the article is saying. He's strong, fast and an excellent finisher - he finished top scorer of the CSL in 2009. Last year he struggled a bit in his rookie year, but hopefully he's going to start coming into his own at the professional level.

  12. It doesn't make sense, as it's not aligned with whatever quota the MLS/NASL have. For example, you can have an all-American team in Canada in the NASL, or an MLS team might have Canadians as mainly depth players, in which case it'd dilute the squad on the field.
  13. Apologies for its own topic, but it's potentially a big one, and there's finally been some confirmation with the CSA updating the NCC site: http://www.canadasoccer.com/documents/2011_championship_rulesEN_pdf.pdf "If the two teams involved in a match score the same number of goals over the two legs, the team which scores more away goals is determined as the winner."
  14. Where did you hear this? The NCC site has the 2010 rules , and NASL/MLS typiclaly don't use away-goals as a tiebreaker for their knockout ties.
  15. Is there an away-goals rule for the VCup??? Montreal 1-1 Vancouver Edmonton 1-1 Toronto Vancouver 0-1 Montreal Toronto 2-0 Edmonton Top scorer: Ali G.
  16. And now back to RBNY . Edit: And now back to Van. WTF. Edit2: Back to NY!
  17. So 15 people browsing the thread, still no link?
  18. This. There are many ways to designate a champion, and none of the VCup formats are sacred by any means. Hell, in 2007, TFC didn't even participate!
  19. NTC's? Really? There's also CNHP (Centre National de Haute Performance), administered by the FSQ. I'm guessing there's still a place in the system for "second-tier" players, who either play in civil clubs or don't want to integrate the Academy for school reasons, but who are high-level and playing in LSEQ. Sometimes, not all the best players end up in the best setup, or it's just not right for them. It also allows for more late bloomers, who might be boxed out of IMFC's system.
  20. Here's BC Place in baseball configuration FWIW:

  22. Deroux's been replaced by Billy this season, and hasn't been in Montreal for the last couple of months. He is the player you had in mind, who is a defensive liability (he is a natural midfielder), and he fell out of favour with the team. He shouldn't be back in 2011.
  23. In a post-mortem interview with the team, Quebec Soccer is reporting that 2011 might move to a knockout tournament (as per Desantis): http://www.quebecsoccer.com/article.php?id=2261
