    Ruud got a reaction from Moldy9 in Montreal Impact 2019 Season   
    Can we all agree that we didn't see this coming?
    Patrice and Thierry together as coaches for Impact?  Terrific stuff
    Almost ANY other coach would have been subject to a ton of debate, criticism, consternation and more.
    Was this the only choice that will be almost unanimously approved?  Even those who are skeptical? 
    Gilmore/Saputo - don't **** this up. 
    I heard that Whitecaps tweeted asking if Henry coaches on turf, harkening to his days of skipping games at certain parks?

    No idea if he will succeed, but if the Impact are going to roll the dice with someone a French footy legend with some managerial experience and a lot of star power seems like the best kind of bet you could make.  If he does well, it will help raise the profile of the team and possibly the league.

    You can't lose to Canada if you're not in the lineup

    This is a Vanney win - Lareya, Ciman, DeLeon - all signings to fill roles and all were needed tonight and in the playoffs.  Can't say enough about Lareya - this kid stood up on defence in the second half and also made the run and pass over to Leon.  He's the difference maker for me coming off the bench in these playoffs.

    The greatest Canadian footballer in one of the biggest derbies in the world.  Do we still have questions?
    FWIW Piette has been on the Amalfi coast crushing limoncellos and won't have played in 1 month.  I too thought he was outstanding against the USA and maybe he can somehow pair with Atiba, but if it's one or the other it's Atiba for me.

    Probably the two best back-to-back games in a single week that I've ever attended live. 5 goals scored by Canadian players within 5 days of each other against American opposition. I can't ask for much more than that.

    I can count on one hand the amount of people I personally know that still have cable. When my bill increased to $100 one month, was an easy decision for me to cut cable a few yrs back. 
    Regardless, for bars, restaurants, mainstream sports fan, I'd still like to see these games on a main stream network cable channel. Would be pretty epic, if somehow CBC got it....or if Rogers did buy it  and then they decided to play it on CTV (free for all), even my 80 yr old grandma. 
    I think from a growth of game perspective for the younger generation and even the casual fans is 1) winning, 2) make the world cup, 3) Canadian players playing at top clubs, 4) CPL being in Fifa, 5) games on mainstream TV.

    This was a first game for CMNT that I can remember attending that was 99% pro Canadian. It was a great seeing this.
    The chemistry between the midfield trio of Piette,Arfield and Osorio is so good to see. They know where each one will be and rotation of positions between them is very fluid.
    The other point is having Vitoria as defensive anchor was huge last night. He was in control back there.

    Most excited I've been since Canada beat Mexico in the Gold Cup in 2000.  Unlike that historic match I really feel that we dominated the US.  Not a fluke, not because of a bad call, but because we were quite obviously the superior team.  Les Rouges are hungry and so are their fans.

    Great to see such a strong home performance (can't watch it, but reading the enthusiastic posts) .  If the Americans drop this one, with the likes of Pulisic being unhappy with getting the hook, I think Berthalter's seat starts becoming white hot.  This won't be acceptable to their USSF

    I am still not loving the double sub.  I know we have had a chance or two since then, but I think the D&D speed kept them honest at the back.

    So Canada's guy is currently heading CONCACAF and we agreed to this new HEX format?  Yeah, I think we've got this game in the bag.  Pretty sure we'd never accept if we weren't going to find our way into the HEX.
