  1. September 4, 1530 at Elephant and Castle on WhyteAve. Everyone bring their ideas, suggestions, recommendations for what we do next year. And GO CANADA GO!!!!
  2. For the Cucumber story, head over to the Voyageurs section of the Forum and check out Voyageurs History and Mythology Explained. I don't know how to link stuff, so..... Also for Saturday's Miami game, I'll be going late because of work, so Strobe Z (hoping he's going) and Manav will be leading the charge as Manav will be bringing the drums. Hoping to make it by halftime.
  3. I believe this is where the Cucumber tradition finally serves a purpose for some of the membership........
  4. And looking forward to meeting the new guys, jedinathan, ThrillaFC and anyone else who's posted that I've missed.
  5. With Carl_Valentine and his crew not being able to make it on Sunday, a few of us are planning on meeting up in the Parking lot at 1300 for a little tailgating. If you drive to Foote, follow the FCE parking signs to the easternmost lot. If you take the LRT, just walk on over to the lot north of the field. I'm guessing some people will be meeting up at Elephant & Castle and some other pubs, but I encourage everyone to come down and join us by 1330 so we can buy the tickets together (hopefully at a discount) and then go set up the section. The section itself is the North end of t
  6. Stevie, I'll facebook message you on the pregame stuff. Unfortunately there are no watering holes near Foote (unless I'm mistaken) and the LRT isn't near any decent pre-match pubs.
  7. As someone who doesn't follow the EPL, there are a lot more leagues in the world whose fans would personally go and beat up whatever sorry excuse for a marketing gimmick is prancing around in the sidelines. And the EPL isn't the be all and end all of the soccer world. FC Edmonton needs to be taken seriously. Period. Having a mascot won't help the credibility with potential die hards out there. It'll only serve to attract more kids and soccer moms who will either yell 'Edmonton Sucks', throw quarters at us or give us dirty looks when a profanity is uttered. Just like the Pompey game.
  8. No mascots, no teeny boppy music, no cheerleaders, no gimmicks. All the team has to do is sell itself and the players. As for us, all we need is less talk, and more rock. If stevieeatworld can make it from Saskatoon, all you lurkers and posters that haven't come down to join us, get off your butts and be counted.
  9. Based on 1) my experience at the pre-B course 2) the assessment format and 3) the fact he was a member of the 4person assessment team, i just did. And I did send a letter to Neil Turnbull in June (if I recall correctly) to outline the concerns I had. Both his (and any other coaches') links to specific soccer training programs as well as the ASA's push of the Mentorship program would have been appreciated bits of info to the coaches before we all decided to spend Mother's Day weekend in Red Deer, pay for the course, hotel, etc when all of us could've just paid our tribute to the ASAand it
  10. I took the Alberta pre-B Assessment this spring (pictures on the ASA's facebook site) and Peter Malakoane was one of the 4 assessors. On the Sunday when the assessment was done - they split the 21 coaches into 2 groups with me being put in Peter's group. Going into it we knew that on previous pre-B Assessments, only 2 of 19 coaches had gotten a sufficiently high grade to be able to enroll in the B course. Once the Assessments started, you could kind of tell why the passing average was that low with some coaches definitely not being up to par. But....most of the coaches had a good idea
  11. Yeah, I remembered my password! First, as the young kids say these days - mad props to Strobe-Z and Carl Valentine for taking the lead on this. They've both put in a lot of time attending press conferences, communicating with team management and advocating for not only us crazy hoolies, but for regular fans as well. Can't predict what'll happen on the field this year or next, but our job is to do what we can in the stands to make this thing fly for more than a few seasons. I don't want any more souvenir match stubs for non-existent Edmonton teams. Second, alberta white, I'm one of

  13. Easy there strobe_z....just cause I should've been red carded during the friendly match at the ASA pre-B Assessment, doesn't mean anything..... For those in Edmonton, there's a friendly match tonight between River City and Comets. 7PM at O'Leary High School. No autographs please.
  14. Hey Kicked. check your pm and email me at River_City_Edmonton@hotmail.com
  15. Apologies for the delay in finishing this up guys, and thanks to MM2 for keeping it alive. Everything is now up to date, although I couldn't fit it all in the original post.

  18. It's been a while since I've posted as things have been hectic on a personal level, but as happy as I am to hear pro soccer is coming to Edmonton, I have to ask how long the NASL will last this time around. Thoughts? In regards to the Edmonton franchise, all I can say is that if the team is run on the same sports model as previous incarnations, or with the same marketing nous of the Everton-River Plate game, this team will be lucky to last 3 years. Having said that, I'll buy season tickets though. And if any Edmonton area V's want to start a supporters group, pm me and we'll ge
  19. We'd be better off granting independence to each of the territories and then creating a new confederation - Arctica. Greenland and Iceland can join too, although Iceland would give us trouble.
  20. And another... Dear Bruno Mastroprimiano and Tom and Dave Fath, How could you justify the outrageous ticket prices for the Exhibition match between Everton and River Plate? Do you realize that you priced out thousands from attending this game? Yes, I understand that you need to recoup your money, but you also need to make if affordable to do so. I purchased the second lowest priced tickets, and each of those tickets cost $70.25 (when you also take into account Ticketmaster's ridiculous "convenience charge", but that's another issue). You need to realize that you can double your at
  21. A lot of negative reactions from people I know that went. Here's an email sent to Terry Jones at the Edmonton Sun from a friend of a friend.... Dear Everton FC, You should be ashamed to call yourself a class organization after failing to provide any sort of opposition or entertainment against River Plate. Your decision to fly to the match on the same day and not field any of your so- called "stars" reeks of a money grab. It was obvious from the kickoff that you had no interest in being there, and your tactics were disgraceful. I've never seen so many back-passes to a goalkee
  22. Goin out on a limb boys... Just got back from the pub, read the thread and need to say that Stalteri was at fault for the penalty. From the one angle, he is holding on to the Honduran's arm as he goes up for the bycicle. Seemingly pulling him. The ball then hits his chest and goes up. IF the ref wanted to great us, he would have called Stalteri on the 2nd minute incident. Thought the Ref did good today. It was our lack of finishing that did us in, not the ref or CONCACAF.
  23. And I'm going with a 3-0 win for Canada. Gerba, Klukowski and Simpson.
