  1. Just finished listening to the podcast on Soccer Talk about the Canadian team at the World Cup '86. Was absolutely fantastic hearing all the old stories from the players. Not sure if anyone else has had the chance to hear it. You can listen to on their episode page - http://www.am650radio.com/Episodes.aspx?PID=3891 It's the August 23 show.
  2. Saw this earlier today... http://www.teamradio.ca/soccer/paul-stalteri-set-to-decide-on-footballing-future/
  3. Just read this article about Josh Simpson and his leg break. http://www.teamradio.ca/soccer/josh-simpson-talks-recovery-from-horrific-injury/ Looking forward to the interview on Sunday. Sounds like it might be pretty emotional. Hope he returns soon, but sounds like it might be until the fall or so. Could have really used him in Honduras with this Canada team. He always had tons of heart and talent. Wishing him the best.
  4. According to Tyler Green and Mike Martinago on Full Time on TEAM 1040 in Vancouver, Colin Miller has been named the interim head coach of the CanMNT. Mark Rogers will be his assistant and Paul Dolan will still be the goalie coach. I think Dolan was on the show and said it. Here's the story: http://teamradio.ca/soccer/colin-miller-take-interim-helm-on-canadian-mens-national-team/#more-20343
  5. Just saw a couple tweets from Tyler Green from Team 1040 in Vancouver saying he's has Tam Nsaliwa on his show tonight and potential return to the national team. Can he still play for Canada? or no? Or can he again? https://twitter.com/#!/tylergreen1040/status/196654008344125441 https://twitter.com/#!/tylergreen1040/status/196654252649750528
  6. I'm a big Whitecaps fan and have to admit I am thoroughly impressed with what I am seeing from the media in terms of coverage of the Vancouver Whitecaps this season. TEAM 1040/1410 is doing an impressive job with all their coverage. The Province and Sun are doing a good job. Sportsnet has been doing games, but I'm not a fan of their choice of commentators just yet. Overall though, I've been really blown away. Happy to see all of it. What do you guys think? Does Toronto have anything like it? More or Less?
  7. Maybe they'll do the Voyageurs Cup... that way they can have double headers with Vancouver playing Edmonton in the late game and Toronto v Montreal in the early game. Or if they are weekday games. Split them up regionally like they do with HNIC games. That would keep them involved.
  8. This will likely be announced shortly as I think the two team (Toronto and Vancouver are just finalizing their local packages) but TSN will be the national carrier of Major League Soccer in Canada this year and likely the next 4 years. GolTV is a good bet to carry part or all of the TFC games locally in T.O. which ofcourse get seen all across the country if you subscribe to the channel. CTV Vancouver is a good bet to pick up the local TV rights for the Whitecaps. Bell is going to be the owner of CTV Globemedia, which includes TSN and also happens to appear across the shirts of
  9. I wonder exactly what he'll say. I know that Hoilett was non-committal, but I wonder if de Guzman will do the same given that he has not really been included in the any recent plans for the Dutch national team. Not even a whisper. I'm going to stay on the positive side and hope he says yes. Also curious if they will ask him about his recent comments about Toronto FC.
  10. Hopefully they catch up with him again after the Greece match and ask him which guys he's spoken to.
  11. I think it's good that Will has re-signed with RSL. He provides options to the National team on a more local level (Domestic league) and it's also nice to see he's a Canadian playing in the league but not on a Canadian team. Success in the future will breed from TFC, Vancouver and Montreal, but overall, they need to have players elsewhere in this league too.
  12. That would be an interesting move to say the least. Not sure what else he has to give and how good he'd be on the field. I imagine with all the media he does and all the youtube videos of him, he would be a marketing asset. The TV and Radio stations would love him as a guest. He may take over!! LOL
  13. Apparently he didn't want to tell Mike and Tyler who he was going to select 1st overall. Too bad, but I guess it's not like a guy like (sorry for the hockey reference) Sydney Crosby is running around a soccer field in this draft and everyone knows he's the number 1 choice.
  14. Do not be fooled, he is not going to commit to TFC anytime soon. It's a place for the end of the career IMHO. I doubt he'll commit to TFC before 32 years of age. That ofcourse unless they throw huge money at him, offer him the chance to play with his brother and his brother talks about how awesome it will be (which I doubt)
  15. Great interview. You could hear the frustration in Hart's voice about certain players. Look, this is a work in progress and I think we as fans are fooling ourselves if we think it's going to be a quick fix. While Hart is hoping for WCQ in 2014, I think a more realistic shot is 2018 when the MLS will have 3 Canadian teams and by that point one would think some home grown players. Plus, you're always going to have some Canadians playing abroad that you can also build on. Would Jonathan de Guzman make a difference on his own? No, because you would still have a front line who is having trouble sco
  16. From what I can understand, Alemania Aachen is looking at De Jong as a summer signing. He will be out of contract this summe with Roda and. Curious to see what he would decide to do.
  17. I'm interested to see what he has to say for himself. While I respect you Ed, I actually disagree with you. I think it fits in with this national team forum post. It is a player that decided to not play for the Canadian National Team, thus making it fit perfectly with a section about the Canadian National team.

  19. The biggest problem was that the CSA built a stadium in a place that can only used for part of the year and not all year round for sporting events. That is why the stadium needs the Argos. To provide some revenue for the stadium in the dry months. It's going to happen. The Argos are going to follow the Montreal model of playing in a smaller stadium and moving to Olympic stadium for the playoffs. The Argos will do the same and move to Rogers Centre in the playoffs. (if they make those).
  20. Pretty interesting comments from Johnson... on Begovic: “He was called in for games and they never cap-tied him. It’s a complete mistake from the Canadian Soccer Association because he’s gonna be a high-level player... there’s no denying that I think Asmir is one of the most talented keepers we ever had… and I don’t know how you cannot cap-tie him! Given all these opportunities, it’s not like some of these guys who turn their back without ever coming in. This guy was committed to Canada for the longest of times and they didn’t show any faith in him… so you can’t blame the guy, c
  21. There's a great place on Broadway and Ontario I think called Three Lions that is fantastic for watching games at. Nice English place.
  22. This sounds very intriging. I hope he has chosen Canada. I also wonder whether he will get shot at Portsmouth as the number 1 at all. David James is getting up there in age, so curious to hear his thoughts. Looking forward to the interview on Sunday night.
  23. Paul Chapman from the Province was on the TEAm 1040 afternoon show and talked soccer numnerous times, quite enjoyable when he ranted about Michael Owen going the Man Utd. (paul is a Liverpool fan). I agree that soccer isn't the most popular topic on the radio, but the TEAm 1040 has a good 2 hour soccer show on Sunday nights. I listen to that and when I can online for Soccer Steve in Edmonton and Nigel Reid's radio show in Toronto. I think there is one in Montreal though, but you can't podcast it, so I can't listen much.
