    Grizzly reacted to LatinInuk in Ullaakuut   
    Hello, my name is Brian and I am a Peruvian/Canadian currently residing in Lima but moving back to the Toronto area in a few months.
    I'll be honest, I'm just a casual follower of the Canadian National Team. For me, Peru is and always will be #1. However, I only support York 9. I follow teams everywhere, Napoli in Italy, Perth Glory in Australia but my true support is only towards York (at least as of now)
    And contrary to popular belief (not any belief at all actually) I'm not an Inuk. I just love the Inuit culture, and I am getting my dream trip to Nunavut this year, so it's sort of a fad for me right now ? the Latin bit comes without saying.
    Anyways, glad to be here!

    The issue with your reasoning is that you believe that the MLS actually cares about you as a fan in Canada, the CSA and the growth of the game in Canada, or the Canadian franchises, when in reality, that's just not the case.

    Yes but a good management team builds a good team to surround the DPs. In Garde's case he just lucked out with inheriting arguably the top player in MLS and has not done enough to build a good team around him that can withstand his absence.

    Found this on Kicker. It says Elva signed a one year contract with a club option for 1 additional year. After his excellent performances in the last 5 games the club will exercise its option for next year.
    Caniggia Elva hat in den vergangenen drei Wochen mächtig Eigenwerbung betrieben (zwei Tore, ein Assist). Der Vertrag des 22-Jährigen mit den Würzburger Kickers endet zum Saisonende. Allerdings besitzen die Kickers eine Option auf Verlängerung, die sie nach Elvas Leistungen wohl auch ziehen.

    Grizzly got a reaction from dyslexic nam in Anthony Jackson-Hamel   
    I really don't understand what Garde is doing with Jackson-Hamel. He brought him on in extra time on Saturday only after Urruti had a knock. When you are losing 5-0 with 20 minutes to go in the game, why don't you bring Urruti off to protect him from injury and put on Jackson-Hamel to get some game time. In the end of year press conference last year Garde said he only had a discipline problem with one player last year and it wasn't Jackson-Hamel. If that is true, why does he hardly get any minutes? If he is not going to get minutes then we should release him to go somewhere that he will get minutes. I still think he is a player with a lot of promise and it seems like Garde is holding him back. I am still not sold on Garde and I think we had a poor off season of signings once again and have a weak team that is dependent on a few top players. If those players get injured or slump we are in big trouble. If we had really upgraded at striker I can understand playing others and releasing AJH but since we still do not have a lot of depth in that position why not try to help him get back on track since we may really need him at some point this season?

    Yeah, late in the game where the goal loses you point(s) is a totally different story. But it's still about stopping the goal and giving your keeper a chance. Not about some macho BS about being disrespected by how the other team is scoring on you. If you don't like it, don't let them walk in like that.

    We had a good start despite the last game but it still seems dependent on two or three players. Shome has the potential and skills to be an MLS player but it is yet to be seen whether he can reach that level of play. However, I would say the exact same thing about Cabrera, he has the skills and technique to be an MLS player but has not yet reached the level of play to be considered an MLS level player. Yet he is paid a high salary and is taking up an international spot. The strange thing is that he was renewed in the offseason to the surprise of everyone who thought he would be released and that we would use his overpaid salary to get someone better. Camacho also does not seem to be a MLS level player so far despite being a starting CB in Belgium. Diallo seems good but our second best CB after him seems to be Raitala who is really a left back. I have no idea what Garde was thinking in the offseason as far as improving the defense. Even more frustrating is that we let Fanni go who along with Piatti and Piette was our best player last year. I am still not sold on Garde even though 6 points from 4 road games is a good result. It just seems too dependent on a few good players having good games as opposed to us having a good team

    Big 2-0 win for them against FC Juniors and Kennedy plays 90 at CB. They are out of the relegation zone and if they keep up their recent results (2 wins and 3 ties in last 5 games) they might move into the mid table soon.  Kennedy has started every game for Klagenfurt this year but he has subbed out in some so he has not played every minute. However, in the highlights I have seen he seems to be their best player. With 3 goals this year he is tied for 3rd top scorer on the team which is pretty good considering he is a CB/DM. The Austrian 2nd division is not the highest level 2nd division but his performances this year seem to indicate he could move up to a better level so at 21 he has a lot of potential and we certainly could use a good CB.
