  1. Hi, I have been away from this group for a long time. I have some Ottawa Intrepid lineups for 3 games in 1990. Do you want me to send them to you? (You already used my Ottawa Intrepid game program from June 3rd, 1990 and my Montreal Supra program showing the Supra playing the Intrepid in 1990 that I posted in this thread a few years back. It isn`t a problem, just saying) Let me know about the lineups. Great website by the way.
  2. I haven't been following any soccer for the last year or so. I got back into it for the WWC and Gold Cup. My two cents based on the performances at the Gold Cup: The team has improved big time and there are some genuine scorers that can make a difference. This being said, the fact that we were not able to beat Mexico and the collapse against Haiti shows me that we are not there. We have improved big time but so has most of Concacaf. WCQ: Let's be honest, we had very little chance to make the Hex under the old system. I like this new qualifying system. It rewards the top teams. Unfor
  3. Thanks for the information about the keepers. I was pretty sure Shel Brodsgaard was standing but I wanted to make sure. Sorry, I should have posted the list of players that accompanies this picture: Shel Brodsgaard Rob Merkyl Enzo Concina Patrick Diotte Peter Gilfillan John Paul Knezevic Peter Sarantopoulos Kevin Holness Lyndon Hooper Domenic Mobilio George Mrscic Norm Odinga Kevin Riley Carlo Corazzin Nick Gilbert Rick Jasken Rob Csabai The player with the fist in the air is Dominic Mob
  4. Hello all, I found this picture on the Canadsoccer web site of the Gold medal winning Canadian side at the 1989 Francophone games. I can identify some players but not all. I am mostly interested in knowing which goalkeeper is which. The 3 goalkeepers that participated are Craig Forrest (who had left after the first 2 games and is therefore not in the picture), Shel Brodsgaard and Rob Merkyl. Which one of these is standing and which is seated? Thanks
  5. Here are programs from 1990: An Ottawa Intrepid one and a Montreal Supra one. Enjoy
  6. mlssoccer.com lists the Impact`s playoff probability at 4% after the loss to Minnesota: https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2017/09/17/playoff-probabilities-every-mls-team-after-week-28 About 3 weeks ago they were at around 38%.. Time to think about next year...
  7. Thanks for the info. I was not aware of the UWS. A quick search reveals that there are a lot of former W-league and WPSL teams in that league. Sad that women's soccer in Canada has come to this.
  8. Hi all, I have been away from the soccer scene for a while and I have a question: Since the W-league folded, what women's teams exist in Canada? Is it just the two BC teams in the WPSL and the teams in League1 Ontario? Are there others?
  9. My two cents: Exciting team to watch. Have not seen this speed and poise in a long time (if ever). I was thinking back to previous Gold Cups: Do you remember when Kevin McKenna had to play forward because there was no one available (2002 I believe). That seems like an eternity ago. We have many young aggressive forwards who can score now. We are a tad sloppy in defense but the team plays together and everyone pitches in. Loved what Borjan had to say at the end of the game. These guys believe! Best players last night: take your pick: Borjan, Arfield(my choice), Piette, Davies I hate t
  10. I am quite surprised nobody posted this: http://www.canadasoccer.com/wilkinson-tancredi-and-nault-announce-retirements-p160328 A trio of Canada Soccer heroes will hang up their boots after international careers that included back-to-back Olympic bronze medals in London and Rio. The three Canadian soccer stars - Rhian Wilkinson, Melissa Tancredi, and Marie-Eve Nault - will all be honoured this 4 February 2017 at Canada Soccer's Bronze Medal Celebration Match in Vancouver. "On behalf of Canada Soccer, we thank these three players for their years of commitment and ded
  11. I noticed that the WPSL will have a team in Vancouver (NSGSC) this year: http://www.wpsl.info/team/index.php?tid=250 Any one know anything about this team?
  12. The Seattle Sounders Women, New Jersey Wildcats, Washington Spirit Academy(previously known as the Braddock Road Stars Elite), Washington Spirit Reserves and Dayton Dutch Lions are all joining the WPSL: http://www.soccerwire.com/news/business-news/five-former-usl-w-league-teams-join-wpsl-including-2015-champions/
  13. Joey Saputo was pretty pissed in his interview. I also think the Impact (and MLS) were not willing to release him because it would set a precedent which they wanted to avoid at all costs. Drogba is going to go through the motions this year. I don`t think it will be good for team chemistry. This is what happens when you pin all your hopes on a 37 year old player. If/when he leaves, you have nothing as a backup. The Impact lived the same thing with Di Vaio. They have to start grooming players from their academy and let them play. I certainly hope Crepeau gets a chance this year. He has been with
  14. Very happy to see a lot of young players getting their chance but what in the hell is Melissa Tancredi doing there? I saw three players on Canada AM this morning talking about being selected. Great to see that.
  15. This is sad news but I'm really not surprised. The W-league was an amateur league that was important when there were no pro women's leagues around but it has lost its raison-d'ĂȘtre since then. The NWSL is doing very well and expanding to Orlando next season. Beyond that there is the 2nd tier WPSL which has the USA covered with 92 teams. There was no need for another 2nd tier league especially one that was changing its teams every single year. The biggest problem with the disappearance of the W-league is that there will be many Canadian women who will simply not have a place to play. Too bad.
