    Most of us on this board would be playing professionally, and probably in Champion's League, if it weren't for our stupid youth coaches!

    Club crests are way more complicated that "logos". They are a form of heraldry that traces back to civic coats of arms created hundreds of years ago, long before "graphic" and "designers" were even words in the English Language.
    If you believe we are "overthinking" crests, jerseys, colours, and the like, then you do not understand supporter culture or the football community. The depth of history is part of the DNA of the oldest professional sport being played today.

    You don't have to appreciate it, but please don't dismiss it. You can be superficial if you want, but denying the depth of meaning is simply insulting.

    Crazy to say that this way 8 years ago today  . Not a lot of people know but Liam was soon CUT from The TFC academy for being to small.(some here do) ... to his credit he didn’t sulk or loose faith he put his head down and went to prove them wrong... 
    sorry for sharing this but all players Are on a different pathway a different road and sometimes it’s good to share that things were never easy. People loose sight of that sometimes. He has a long way to go but has come so far !!
    my message to all players is to never give up ...

    It also means there is a lot of people who haven't paid much attention to AM's 100+ year history. If you're actually a follower of world football, AM's should one of the clubs imprinted on you. 
    It tells me there is still lots of work to be done in terms of football culture in Canada. So I'm glad AM kept to its roots rather than following the uninformed braying masses.

    At first I was questioning myself as to why I didn't see the similarity right away.
    But after a 30 sec. search I discovered that the US has only been using this logo since 2016.   So perhaps they were the ones copying Atletico Madrid!

    Are certain people saying that a Canadian team can never have red, white and blue as their team colours?  
    I personally love the badge.  But again, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

    Acid-Tone reacted to Snowcrash in Jonathan David   
    Ok, to get the discussion back on topic, here's a video of David near the end of the match.  For context, he's probably covered the most distance up to that point among all the Gent players.
    For me, easily the most impressive sequence I've ever seen of David and that includes his wonder goal against Cuba.  This play alone probably increased his transfer value by $5M.
    The player he caught, Doku, is an 18 year old winger who is one of the fastest players in the Jupiler Pro League.  The other parts of his game haven't come together yet but the kid is known for his speed down the wing.

    Unbelievable performance from back to front from the whole team. To come out and beat a league one team with basically a u20 team. Brilliant 
    so incredibly proud of Liam asked to do a job to press and push and run. He put a proper shift in and did all that an more. That dummy near the end and if Curtis would hve put him in he would have scored for sure. 
     
    so so proud. . No one can ever take that away from him having played for Liverpool FC in the FA Cup team  a winning team.

    This is one of the best Canadian soccer twitter feeds but I always have to get my Google translate ready..
    "Werder Bremen have hired young Canadian defender Belal Halbouni (20). He was at FC London of League1 Ontario. Initially he will play for the under-23 team."
    Looking a bit like Stalteri with those curls and probably around the same age of signing.  He was also a striker at Western it looks like before converting to defence.  Talk about out of left field!  Let's hope they can turn him into Diesel 2.0.

    Acid-Tone got a reaction from Addona in Stephen Eustaquio   
    I thought he had a good game overall.  Went the full 90.   He possibly could take some blame for the Rafa goal as he was marking him just as the attacking play was starting, but then left him to go try and press the man with the ball.   However the CB behind him was slow to pick up Rafa and he ended up receiving the pas and scoring. 
    Did a decent job helping his team hold on to possession for the majority of the game.  The problem is that Benfica are so lethal on the counter right now and in the blink of an eye 2 counter-attacks ended up as goals for Benfica.   
    Overall I thought Stephen and Paços de Ferreira played pretty well and if they continue to play like that I think they can move up a few spots and safely avoid being relegated.

    ^^^   Agreed 100%!
     
    I'll continue to be a fan of the honest to a fault, hard-working, battering ram of a striker who helps his team and scores goals.  You guys can keep hoping for that great player on the field who becomes a well spoken politician in front of the microphone to show up!

    So you are saying that some fans prefer mercenaries who lie to those that don't, and those are the good mercenaries. Because they hide the reality from fans, who are too sensitive to take the truth?
    In Canada we forget we are a losing soccer nation, then go about slagging our players from this same losing mentality. Beggars can't be choosy.
    I personally just take it that a huge percentage of players are pretty ignorant and, of course, uneducated, and have no control over what they are saying. The best player in the world is a dolt, and the second best, not the brightest. Every so often one comes along who can talk, but it is like 10-15%. They are not even able to analyse the games they just played. Compare that with the tennis pros, I was listening to Nadal today and he analysed the game point by point, it was a technical analysis of the Krygios match in detail. Rarely I've seen a footballer do this.
    Then fans come along expecting something else.

    The truth be told Klopp didn’t want a replay they have enough fixtures to play ( Newcastle drew with oxford yesterday and now have a replay)  so he has picked a strong team with Salah and Firmino  on the bench
    Liam  has been back 2 weeks has 2 goals in 2.25 games for the 23s including a 60 yard worldie vs United.(if only I could share the video!)  and has been training in and around the first team. 
    it takes time to break into one of the best teams in the world especially after playing in the SPFL. The level even in training is a million miles apart. 
    his job is to be patient work hard and take it all in. Atm LFC are assessing options for staying or going back out on loan. I trust the people at LFC to know what’s best for Liam. 
    if LFC can win the league early there is talk internally of possibly more of the young players getting opportunities later in the Premier league season. We forget that he has been at Liverpool FC now for 4 years... every pathway is different.. We will see what happens but I hold out hope for a debut but who knows...

    Now would be a good time to up the minimum on Canadian players to start matches. I believe it is still at 3, right?
    That's a cakewalk for the CPL teams. Montreal and Vancouver have a ton of Canadians by historic standards and TFC are now up to 8 or 9 I think.
    Should be increased from 3 to 4. I want to say 5, but y'know...slow and steady.

    I think this is a case of Lucas just interpreting the question/situation a bit differently than most of us here.  When he refers to being 0% Canadian, I think he means as it relates to "Canadian" culture.  You know, the stereotypical poutine-eating, toque-wearing, Tim Horton double-double drinking ultra passionate hockey fans.    He sees himself as 0% THAT guy. 
    That does not necessarily mean that he isn't a proud Canadian!  I think this is a bit more nuanced than that and not at all a black and white scenario.
    Then again, this is just the opinion of one very proud (hyphenated) Canadian.
