  1. I thought the saying: "they'll be dancing in the streets of Raith" meant there was a place called Raith. There is not.
  2. I was able to watch the Austria Klagenfurt loss to Grazer AK on Tuesday via Austrian State Television (ORF) and Scott is a big lad! I think he can play in the Austrian Bundesliga and hopefully that will be with Klagenfurt next season.
  3. @spitfire found this video of Liam when he was at the TFC Academy and a ball boy at 12 years of age (he is the kid at the end of the video sticking his tongue out). As you can tell, he was an average size for his age. He shared it with me and was okay passing it along to fellow Voyageurs. Had to publish it on YouTube as it was the only way I could share it. https://youtu.be/0N1ExP17B0A
  4. These WC qualifiers all over the world may have problems with player availability if the pandemic continues well into the fall. Imagine a Japanese player in the Bundesliga (quite a few of them) playing a qualifier in a country that has a significant number of cases. 1) Will Germany allow a non-citizen to enter back into the country when they have visited a place that is banned for non-Germans to have been in. 2) If they are allowed back, what kind of quarantine would Germany have once the player returns? They could miss multiple league matches which the clubs and the player would be unhappy about. 3) How is travel within a FIFA window (which is difficult at the best of times) going to happen with all the protocols and restrictions in place when 2 or more countries are being visited by any player? 4) Will a player even want to do this? Now replace Japanese player In the Bundesliga with Davies and trips to Canada and unnamed CONCACAF country. I see problems regardless of format.
  5. I do. He was pretty ordinary but the Scottish game can be pretty "agricultural".
  6. That is a big club that has gone bust! I still remember the season they came up from 2. Bundesliga to win the Bundesliga the year after. Hopefully they will be back soon - they have a large fan base.
  7. ^ This is not surprising. My week in Istanbul at Christmas made that very clear to me how much he is loved by the Besiktas supporters. Hoping that statue gets put up at the stadium.
  8. Don't waste your breath. To Robert, a youth keeper at PSV (who is possibly Dutch) is better than a Champions League keeper at Red Star Belgrade.
  9. Is Lokomotive Leipzig still a going concern?
  10. Interesting article about Saarbrucken's DFB Pokal semi-final against Bayer 04 Leverkusen midweek: https://www.bbc.com/sport/football/52921378
  11. Seen him play once last season as a sub cause I think that’s all he’s played in a match for the Fury. Lots of attention cause he’s local and very young. But couldn’t tell you if he will be any good or even make the professional ranks in 20 mins or so of play.
  12. What is wrong with PEI? Makes a lot of sense both medically and economically as long as the provincial gov't concurs.
  13. Don't think the proposal will go through; don't think there's enough votes in the SPFL to carry it.
  14. Erling Haaland was bought from RB Salzburg. Thorgan Hazard (Eden’s brother) was a star at Borussia Mönchengladbach and bought from them. Julian Brandt was an excellent winger at Bayer Leverkusen and bought from them. And those are just the current ones. Dortmund buys very good players and are stars in their own right. Dortmund is a stepping stone for some players (and managers) to even bigger clubs.
  15. Agreed! I met up with him in Philly for a Gold Cup Quarter Final against Honduras back in 2009 - prematch Cheesesteak sandwiches and all. Haven’t heard from him in almost 10 years.
  16. Someone having 128 posts accusing someone with 110 posts of not being around long enough is rather rich.
  17. Raul Jimenez is better than David right now.
  18. No chance. The CSA wouldn’t allow it. Municipal, provincial and federal authorities wouldn’t allow it. The majority of the players and their families won’t want to do it. The MLS wouldn’t have to stand in the way.
  19. I watched highlights of the Grand Sumo Wrestling Championships from Osaka. Learned a lot!
  20. The only thing worse than resurrecting this thread is TSN showing the match again in full.
  21. Don't blame the COC at all. Kudos for being brave on this.
  22. I was listening to a Scottish football podcast and the panelists (mostly ex-professional footballers/managers) believe that the June EURO 2020 qualifier against Israel is unlikely. I am hoping for an around Canada Day start; anything earlier would be a pleasant surprise, IMO.
