  1. Ok the other poster said it was Neuer so I just assumed it was him. Regardless I don't the keeper was at fault on any of the goals not even slightly. I hate Bayern but do have some respect for them in that they run the team very professionally but don't really follow them or the 1st Bundesliga that closely other than to look at the scores or occasional highlights. 1st Bundesliga is full of teams I either hate, feel indifferent to or mildly like. The more interesting teams and fanbases are in the lower divisions so I follow that more. When I lived in Germany I always enjoyed going to the lower
  2. Admittedly salaries in USL and likely CPL will not be that great but it does seem to be a strange time to retire at 30 with CPL arriving. Any other information on why he is retiring?
  3. Which goals were saveable? First was a perfectly placed free kick, no keeper can cover all the net on a kick like that. The second is a 1 on1 break on the keeper in which Neuer did the right thing by rushing the attacker which is about the only thing he can do to have any chance but the finish was perfect. 1 on 1 with a perfect finish is a goal every time. The third one is a 2 on 1 with a pass to a player alone in front of the net which Neuer could do nothing about. I don't see how Neuer could have stopped any of these goals other than just being lucky. I have only seen the highlights but it l
  4. Don't forget that Gent's manager hated Canada but fortunately their club management was reading The Voyageurs and on our advice fired him in October in favour of a new manager who loves Canada!
  5. If transfermarkt is correct I only see him getting one in the clausura last year and then the one today which is also clausura of this year (they haven't listed it yet). In 2016 he got 2 in Uruguay league play (and one in the Copa Sudamericana) if that is what you are referring to but then there are several years he did not get any red cards in.
  6. He got 1 last season and this is his first one this season. Not sure if that is a lot but with CONCACAF refs Herdman needs to make sure that he is not doing things that will get him carded.
  7. The famous forum double post that can't be deleted!
  8. Nice to see him do well and both the assist and goal are nice but man that looks to be a very low level of play.
  9. Pretty poor defensive coverage on the play but yes a well directed header and when the other team lets you free you need to punish them. Hope he can do that on a regular basis for Canada too.
  10. 9 minutes of national team play and 1 goal!
  11. Kevin Gilmour will be named President of the Impact, taking over from Joey Saputo. If that means Saputo will interfere less in the team it will be a good move. In a best case scenario Gilmour will have the power to fire all the friends and insiders that we have on staff and replace them with qualified people. https://www.tvasports.ca/2019/01/21/kevin-gilmore-se-joint-a-limpact-1
  12. Impactsupporter asked me this in the Impact thread and as I was answering I thought it would be an interesting topic on its own in regard to all the MLS teams and the opinions of their fans. My personal preference would be for the Impact and TFC and the Caps to eventually play in CPL. What are the opinions of other fans? My reasoning is below. So do you feel that the Impact should leave MLS??? FWIW, Alex Bunbury is supposed to make his announcement the end of January re: Montreal Laval team. I would be fine with the Impact moving to CPL. A lot of the hardcore Impact suppo
  13. This is a very weak non-playoff roster for the 3rd year in a row if there are no new major signings. In other news, the club signed Urruti to an extension. They must really believe in him. I hope they are right. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/01/17/montreal-impact-ink-maxi-urruti-extension-through-2021-using-tam
  14. No it doesn't. And what will the Caps apologists do when they can't inform us in great detail that soccer is a business and Canadian players have to take their chances and show that they are better than the competition? They may not have anything more to post here and will end up as extinct as Krammerhead! This is almost a "Won't Somebody Think of the Children?" moment!
  15. Dos Santos is ruining this forum with none of us able to have fun anymore bitching at the Caps for hating Canada and having the enjoyment of pissing of Caps fans in the process!
  16. Yes this is likely true. The problem in Portugal is the huge gap between the big 3 and the other clubs. He is playing on the worst club in the league and the big 3 clubs may not even be interested at this point even if he is one of the better and more promising players for Chaves. He can transfer to a better mid-table club in Portugal but it might not mean a lot more salary for him or a decent transfer fee for Chaves. With the Mexican league being more balanced in terms of budget and team level there are more opportunities to transfer there and move up club wise and salary/transfer wise for a
  17. I clicked on his profile to see his most recent messages from mid 2009 and almost every one of them has him calling people assholes or otherwise insulting them! LOL!
  18. I have suspected for a while that he was out of his squad because he told them he wanted to transfer not because he could not play at that level or they were unhappy with his play. It often happens that players stop getting playing time once the team knows they are transferring out. If Javor were playing poorly they might have put him back in but they are currently in 1st place so they have no motivation to play him over someone who will be staying with the club.
  19. You guys demanding friendlies and camps are all old school and living in the past! We don't need them, this is the modern era and the CSA is leading the way in the soccer world! When our coach/master guru puts posters like this in the hallways before games it pumps up the players so much than any improper squad selection due to not seeing the players play, players defecting to more active teams or lack of cohesion because they do not play together becomes irrelevant and Honduras will not know what hit them!
  20. I would be fine with that. It might better reflect our playing level as well.
  21. Very worrying interview with Remi Garde in French. It seems like all the big moves have been done, the team is pretty much set, Fanni (our only good CB) will not be back, the Silva money was spent giving Bush and Lovitz raises and for Urutti's salary and we will have the third shitty offseason of bad signings in a row and be out of the playoff picture by July (the last part is my opinion not Garde's :-) ) If there are not going to be any major moves before the season starts it makes me want to ask for a refund on my season tickets and just not watch the season. It is one thing to have a bad
  22. Getting off topic but interesting, history of the two man penalty https://www.theguardian.com/football/2005/oct/26/theknowledge.sport
