  1. In the EPL, Arfield is going to play the las 16 minutes for Burnley, They are now 3 - 1 against Chelsea.
  2. In English Championship, Cardiff is leading 2 - 0 after 62 minutes against Aston Villa. Hoiltett has an assist on the first goal and scored the 2nd goal.
  3. Not what I meant, but I can see why you interpreted it that way. I was thinking more of 200-07 period where we won the tournament one time, finished third two times.
  4. The reason Canada does better in GC than WCQ games is because GC matches are neutral ground and WCQ games are home/away matches. Many argue that the MNT doesn't know how to play away matches but I believe we also struggle on home matches. While I agree GC matches won't improve home/away performances, winning the cup could have been a boost of confidence for the players.
  5. I love how Davies is destroying his arguments, specially the bold parts.
  6. In Copa Sudamericana, Diego Gutierrez started for Palestino. Unfortunately, they lost 2 - 5 against Brazilian club Flamengo. Gutierrez played 90 minutes in central midfield position.
  7. Trying to anticipate what might be the level of interest in of a CPL club in Québec City, I went to see semi-pro club Dynamo de Québec. They play in Lévis, on the other side of the river (too far for me to go watch the team there), and last Saturday they played at Université Laval. They are not supposed to play again in Québec city this season. I had the chance to talk to the mother of one of the players. She told me the team lost its first 4 matches, and they didn’t manage to score yet. Fortunately, Dynamo managed to score in a 2-1 win for the first time this season. I asked the mother’s player about the attendance in Lévis; she told there are usually 200 people, and that afternoon there were easily 400 people, maybe 500. The ticket price was 5$. I found out that many of the younger players come from the CEGEP (pre-university college) teams in Québec city. Also, I found out a player that might be of interest for the mother of Canucks abroad database. His name is Lukumbi Tshindaye, he’s 17 years old and he’s from Rwanda. I don’t know if he’s Canadian but he lives here since 2010. He had a tryout with West Bromwich’s Academy and apparently the club was interested in him, they told him come again this fall before the next season starts.
  8. Cordova plays at RB However, in the highlights you will find on youtube, he plays at LB position on occasion. He's right footed.
  9. In one hour, Besiktas visit Gaziantepspor (second last in the standings). If Besiktas win today, Hutchinson is going to win the league for a second year in a row.
  10. In the Italian Serie A, Cristante started the match for Atalanta against Chievo. Atalanta is up 1 - 0 after 60 minutes and Cristante has an assist on that goal.
  11. I wouldn't have a problem with this argument if Canadians weren't considered internationals on American clubs, while Americans are considered locals boys in Canada. In the end, the current rules will always make sure to limit the number of Canadians in the league, but everyone who claims that playing time goes by merit, it seems he conveniently ignore this handicap on Canadian players.
  12. Here's a link of Diego Gutierrez's pk (starting at 8:15):
  13. I meant it in the sense that he was the second last player to touch the ball before Ricketts scored. I agree Edwards has a lot of merit on that goal.
  14. Ricketts scores again from a cross made by Edwards, deflected by Vasquez. Edwards will probably awarded an NHL assist.
  15. Ricketts tied the game against Columbus, assisted by Edwards.
  16. Diego Gutierrez is on the bench for Palestino as they visit Atletico Venezuela in Copa Sudamericana. Palestino won 1 - 0. It ended 1 - 1 on aggregate, and Palestino won it on penalties. Diego Gutierrez played the last 19 minutes, and Palestino scored on 87'. Gutierrez was the 5th penalty shooter and he scored.
  17. Edwards has an assist on the first goal, his second of the year. TFC is up now 2 - 0 after 35 minutes.
  18. In the Chilean First Division, Diego Gutierrez played 5 minutes for Palestino in a 3-2 win against Cobresal. The match was already 3-2 by the time he played some minutes.
  19. Chile First Division Union Española 1 - 2 Palestino (Diego Gutierrez) Gutierrez was an unused sub.
  20. The issue I have with people insisting on Hedges is, despite the fact he meets the FIFA requirements to play for us, he isn't a Canadian citizen (he isn't born in Canada and neither of his parents is Canadian), which means he should live at least 5 years in Canada in order to become Canadian. Unless I misinterpreted the FIFA rules or the Canadian laws (someone correct me if I'm wrong), he can't play for us until he has Canadian citizenship.
  21. I agree. Last year I stopped watching games of the three Canadian MLS, the playoffs being the exception, clubs because none of them satisfied my expectations of Canadian content. I should add I watched some of TFC games when they started at least three Canadians. Also, with the recent developments, Montreal Impact killing FC Montreal, I will likely see less of them next season. Their Canadian content last season was an insult to the program and I fear next season their Canadian content will be worse.
  22. It's 4 - 0 now for Cardiff with Hoilett assisting on the 4th goal: Goal! Cardiff City 4, Rotherham United 0. Kenneth Zohore (Cardiff City) left footed shot from a difficult angle on the left to the bottom right corner. Assisted by Junior Hoilett.
  23. I'm impressed with Boakye's play. He seems to be a good offensive LB.
