  1. I need to have information on this player. I understand he's a Nigerian-American-Canadian now playing for Colorado Rapids. I also know that he was called up once to play for Canada. However, his Canadian citizenship is now under question as a result that he has already played for the United States on January 29, 2006, against Norway. Is there a possibility that this guy may NOT be able to play for Canada anymore on account of his citizenship??? Is there any way that the CSA could sign him up for our nats???
  2. Actually redhat, this is a good idea. I am 100% for it. It appears that these players have faded away so suddenly, and WE</u> the fans have a right to know. I really hate this secrecy ban such as: Oh!!! I can't tell you where he is right now because we need to respect his privacy. This is so baloney.
  3. Guys, it does appear that Canadian fans have totally forgotten about Victor Oppong. I haven't. I would doub it very much that Frank Yallop will ever call him for National duties as a result that he plays in the lower leagues in Germany. I was going over his record with his present club Waldhof Mannheim of the German lower league Oberliga Baden-Württemberg. I am very puzzled by Oppong's status given the fact that many of his colleagues such as Ali Gerba, Lars, Grande, Reda, Friend, etc... have now moved on to better prospects in Sweden or Norway. I was wondering why he has not accepted any offers from those Scandinavian countries. The guy is already 23-year old and is expected to turn 24 this coming September.
  4. Here the article on the re-signing of Kenny Stamatopoulos ESK förlänger med Kenny ESK:s kanadensiske landslagsmålvakt Kenny Stamatopoulos fortsätter i ESK. Han och ESK har kommit överens om ett avtal som sträcker sig till och med säsongen 2006. Kenny kom till ESK från grekiska Kalamata förra sommaren och signerade då ett ettårsavtal. Båda parterna ville ha en förlängning och ESK är mycket nöjt med att Kenny fortsätter ytterligare 2,5 år. Förlängningen har möjliggjorts tack vare pengar från riskkapitalbolaget Hemmalaget AB. Allt talar också för att ESK förstärks med de två kenyaner som provspelade för en månad sedan: Mcdonald Maguti, central mittfältare och född 1986. Andrew Opiyo, mittback och född 1985. ESK, Maguti, Opiyo, deras moderklubb i Kenya och Hemmalaget är överens. - Ja, nu ser det ut att bara vara pappersexercis kvar, berättar ESK:s klubbdirektör Göran Ohlsson.
  5. Thanx Dandal. It appears that Enköpings really like Kenny. They see him as an important member of the club.
  6. Guys, I managed to get an E-mail early this morning from the Presidet of Enköpings Supporters Club in Sweden. This is what he had to say about Kenny's present situation at Enköpings. Hi there Luis, Latest news I heard was that ESK wants to sign a 2,5 year contract with Kenny, but Kenny wants to sign a half year contract only, and after the season is over he might sign a 2 year contract if the team is still playing in division 1. I spoke to a representative from ESK who said they weren't really getting any closer to a signed contract. After the contract period is over, Kenny is free transfer except for Clubs in Sweden. That's probably the reason ESK wants to sign a 2,5 year contract. IF the team goes down to division 2, ESK has the chance to transfer Kenny to another club and get paid for it. Anyway - I hope they'll come to an agreement. Henrik Johansson played Last game, and the story from 2002 repeated itself - a direct corner kick goes in behind him.. Best Regards ///Magnus Ahlkvist
  7. Dandal, what the latest on Kenny Stamatopoulos in Sweden. His contract comes to an end perhaps by the middle of next week, and I was wondering if Enköpings is any closer of renewing his contract or whether the club is expected to trade him to another club. Cheers, Luis
  8. Fernando, if you are out there, please reconsidred your options. I would love to see you back on the national squad. There's an old saying about Blizzard players, they never turn their backs on the fans. They always walk with pride, dignity, and loyalty. This is the old moto that the greats such as David Byrne, Roberta Bettega, Ace Ntsoelengoe, Jimmy Nicholl, Bruce Wilson, etc... have always deeply respected. Please Fernando don't forget where your roots lie. Blizzard forever.
  9. What's the latest on Paul Fenwick??? Has he been officially let go by HIBERNIAN???
  10. Any possible rumours as to where he may be going from here. There's got to be a team interested in this young guy. I just can't believe my eyes that there is a team that is NOT interested in acquiring Godfrey's service.
  11. Perhaps there is something to be happy with the CPSL. A major market such as Windsor has finally been accepted into the league, even though it should have happened at least 2 years ago. Nevertheless, what still has me piss is the expulsion of 2 good markets such as Ottawa and Durham. Eventually this will come back in hunt the league. The very fact that these 2 good markets are not there will definitely have major affects on the level of play.
  12. Finally some news on Adam Braz. Too bad he's not going back to Europe. ADAM BRAZ IS BACK WITH THE IMPACT MONTREAL, December 17, 2003 – Adam Braz is back home. The 22-year-old defender, who had left the Impact after the 2002 season to join ranks with club Vasteras SK, a second-division Swedish team, has returned to play with the Montreal squad. "I loved my experience in Sweden but I wanted to play at home," said Braz (photo), a Montreal native who started 25 of 30 games with club Vasteras. "I think I learned a lot by playing abroad. I acquired more maturity both as a player and an individual. But on the other hand, the Impact is doing very well and I wanted to play in my home town. I’m really happy and excited to be back." Despite his rookie status in 2002, Braz played 20 of 28 games with the Impact, 17 as a starter. He played a total of 1,554 minutes, ranking 4th among defenders on the team that year. "Adam brings a lot to the team both on the field and in the dressing room," said Impact head coach Nick DeSantis. "Although he was a rookie in 2002, he quickly earned a spot as a starter. Now, after a stint in Europe, he’s coming back to us with even more experience." By playing in Europe, Braz was fulfilling every soccer player’s dream, but he admits it wasn’t always easy. "We started the season very strong and the team was in the top three in the league. But after a string of injuries to key players, we went 10 games without a win. We finally finished 11th overall (out of 16 teams) and at the end of the season, our coach was fired." As for the difference in the level of play between the A-League and Sweden, Braz believes the Impact can compete. "I think we tend to underestimate the calibre here," he says. "After playing there, I think the Impact could easily compete with teams in Sweden, even first-division clubs." Braz, who will take part in the Impact’s tour of children’s hospitals, Thursday, will join the Canadian Olympic team’s training camp at the end of December to prepare for the qualifiers for the 2004 Games in Athens. THE IMPACT DRAFTS TWO PLAYERS In other news, the Impact drafted two players, Wednesday, at the A-League college draft : University of Louisville midfielder Adrian Cann, from Thornhill, Ontario, in the first round, and Montrealer Olivier Occean, a striker with Southern Connecticut State University, in the second and final round. Occean, who is 6’1 and 180 pounds, was recently picked for the second straight year on the first All-American team in the NCAA’s Division II. This season, he scored 21 goals and collected 48 points, tying a team record. Cann, 6’3 and 165 pounds, is the first player in Louisville history to become an All-American. He was the team’s MVP for two straight years. -30- SOURCE: bcomm INFO: Stéphane Banfi 514-328-3668 (ext. 27)
