  1. Tuesday they sign defender Rocco Romeo from TFC II. Age 19 Wednesday, today they sign Jahkeele Marshall-Rutty directly from their Academy although I did see him play a few minutes with TFC II last season as a late sub. Partial headline is he's still only 15.
  2. July 6, 2014 first year of League 1 Ontario game between TFC Academy and Woodbridge Strikers and a key photo in my report http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports14/14l1o044.htm Halftime subs Mo Babouli, Mark-Anthony Kaye and Chris Mannella coming into the game with PA guy Anthony Totella (now a motivational speaker for the CPL). Page down to the bottom for photos. Note the captain of TFCA was defender Mateo Restrepo now being talked about as a possible signing for a CPL team.
  3. Do you think there's time for Ottawa to be pushed into the Voyageurs Cup for 2020 seeing as the draw has already been conducted?
  4. My very early preview (January 15th) of Toronto FC II's 2020 season in USL League One: http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports20/20tfc201.htm
  5. 2019 York 9 FC assistant coach Sergio Deluca returns to Vaughan Soccer Club to take up position as technical director. Remember Carmen Isacco has already left. On the plus side York 9 has added Paul Stalteri.
  6. I was just catching up on some OneSoccer shows and played 'Inside the CPL Episode 28' in the background. They called the Petrasso signing weeks ago but then I had to rewind to find that it was only in a segment called 'Dream Signings'. Something about the one player that each team would like to sign from another CPL team's roster. Had to rewind that part after seeing Abzi ending up on Calgary and Ingham on HFX...and I was "WHAAAAAT???" Take a breath...OK only 'dream signings'. I wonder if his brother Luca will be back on TFC II next season?
  7. December 19, 2019 Finally, my report is up on attending Day 3 of the York 9 FC U-21 Identification Camp. http://rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports20/20york003.htm Successful trialists not revealed yet. Former Cdn Nat team player Paul Stalteri has been added to the coaching staff.
  8. December 18, 2019 Day 2 of the @York9FC U-21 Identification Camp held at the OSC in Vaughan. http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports20/20york002.htm Eight 15 minute 11v11 games. Only five goals scored but CPL-U draft choice Stefan Karajovanovic scored at the 3 second mark in one of his games.
  9. December 17, 2019 First day report on the York 9 FC U-21 Identification Camp held at the OSC in Vaughan. Also Chris Mannella sighting! http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports20/20york001.htm
  10. In past years they started Varsity Stadium then when school sports start in August, they got bumped to Esther Shiner Stadium (Bathurst & Finch) and Downsview Park (but not the TFC grounds).

  14. Being held at a barber shop! @OakRidgesSoccer Meet and greet with @york9fc ’s Head Coach, Jimmy Brennan! Check out this bit.ly/2JXk0kB for more details.
  15. My free ticket to the inaugural game was just a generic Ticketmaster style printout. Now the bad early days of TFC when they had tickets with pictures of the players that could almost pass for trading cards looked great but by the time it was the week to finally use them that player was about 50% likely to have been traded away! Later years they concentrated on DPs and then one year of their roughest looking fan supporters.
  16. Yeah lots in USL to take on! Saturday first place North Texas SC won the first season USL League One playoff final. Monday second place Lansing Ignition ceased operations. I made some comments that I was glad TFC II have deep pocketed owners. Their last home game had 51 of us in the stands cheering them on.
  17. Looks like we will get paper tickets by default next season (mobile by request). And a 2020 member's scarf. and free OneSoccer. both mentioned in the FAQ section at the bottom of this link: https://york9fc.canpl.ca/2020-renewals
  18. So Saturday October 19th first place North Texas SC win the first USL League One season 1-0 over third place Greenville Triumph in the final. Monday the league reveals that second place Lansing Ignite have ceased operation. Glad seventh place TFC II's owners have deep pockets!
  19. October 19, 2019 CPL York 9 FC vs HFX Wanderers played at York Lions Stadium. All the audio from the post game press conference with HFX Stephen Hart, Christian Oxner, and Juan Diego Gutierrez then York 9 FC with Jimmy Brennan, Luca Gaspartotto, and Ryan Telfer http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports19/19york169.htm Besides their thoughts on this game, there were also questions about how they saw the season as a whole.

  22. In the listings they have it to be broadcast on their 'live' channel at Saturday 4:00am-6:00am and Sunday afternoon 3:30pm to 5:30pm all times EST. I was able to catch it on Thursday night at 8:00pm. (There is commentary but there was no pre/halftime/postgame shows although all rebroadcasts on the live channel are like that). There're filled with the Open Trial stuff....now that makes me wonder if they'll edit out all the Silberbauer stuff?
  23. How Gareth Wheeler has changed in just over a year! Listen to him cut me off at the Toronto FC Q & A on Oct 6/18 (with him as the MC) when I ask Bill Manning and Tim Bezbatchenko about Canadians being pushed down the roster. Starts at the 36 minute mark. "Do you want to win or do you want to see Canadians play?" and "I've played Cdn soccer in Uni against US and we weren't anywhere good enough!" So is Gareth Wheeler changing because he's now drawing a second paycheque with the CPL league? Bonus: Listen to Tim B praise Liam Fraser's development. http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports18/18tfc045.htm http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports18/MannBez02.mp3 or skip right to the sound file. 36 minute mark!

  25. Either 'no' or I was in the wrong hallway. I noticed most of the US reporters disappeared as soon as Berhalter finished.
