  1. Nope. You've just the full circle panic, which is a survival mechanism in Canadian soccer. It's allowed ๐Ÿ˜
  2. Rob says the Fairbanks rumour is not true
  3. I'm not sure if 8 votes is enough of a sample size to be representative of the Voyageurs, but at 35 points, Ashley Lawrence is the clear winner. Sinclair and Labbรฉ tied for second/third with 9 points each.
  4. The only one I'm really solid on is Lawrence at #1. 1. Ashley Lawrence 2. Christine Sinclair 3. Jessie Fleming
  5. We can't very well only have a Men's player of the year, so I thought I'd start the Women's poll The deadline for submissions is 12:01 AM (Pacific) January 1st, New Years Day 2020. Submissions for PoY must have a first place, second place, and third place selection. A point system is used to calculate a players points total at the completion of polling. A player will receive 5 points for a 1st place selection, 3 points for a 2nd place selection, and 1 point for a 3rd place selection. The player with the highest final aggregate total will be declared the Voyageurs International Player of the Year. Only one submission per IP address. Additional submissions from the same IP address allowed entirely at the Administrators discretion. For a player to be eligible for the Voyageurs International Player of the Year the player must have been selected for international duty at the senior level in 2019 and be eligible to play for Canada, in accordance with FIFA laws & statutes
  6. Yeah Wade Miller. Sounds like the kits are new designs. And OneSoccer is still the sponsor for season two, from what I have heard.
  7. My assumption was that the lack of news about most of the team had to do with players waiting to see what other options they might have in January, so it's nice to see Rob being open about that. I don't know if it indicates that Valour is trying to be a pipeline so much as it represents the reality we are in right now, though I wouldn't mind if our plan is to develop players, much like Pacific. Wade told me on Monday that their objective is to put a winning team out on the pitch. I don't think those two things are mutually exclusive (and on limited budgets, developing young players is necessity), but we have lots of pieces to fill in before we can have any idea how things are going to look next season. I'm not always known for my patience, so AHHH. On another note, there will be a kit launch in January, in the Pinnacle club.
  8. It definitely was Attardo. At the time they said that I did the math using the numbers on the CPL site, and it checked out. I didn't look again at the end of the season to see where he stood though.
  9. On the most recent Young Gaffers podcast, they had an interview with Rob Friend and he said that the league originally said the kits would be in before Christmas, but now it's going to be cutting it too close to Christmas so they would be revealed in January. Seems it's not Valour's fault that they aren't in, but they probably should have learned their lesson from last season, and anticipated that jerseys would arrive later than promised. At least we've all come to understand that CPL timelines are just loose suggestions ๐Ÿ˜‰
  10. I believe the Kings Head viewing will be in the lower area. They had a big screen down there last month, so it is probably still there. For Nicolinos, we will be in private room for sure, so start there. Nick is also going to have the game on in the lounge as well, though it will likely be busy over dinner.
  11. There is a second viewing party in Winnipeg, at The Kings Head - 120 King Street West
  12. Winnipeg Viewing will be at Nicolinos again (2077 Pembina Highway). We will likely be in the private room. https://www.nicolinosrestaurant.com/
  13. I'd be pretty happy if we could snag Jackson Farmer.
  14. The #CanPLtrophychallenge has been fun tonight Of course I had to share my own
  15. LBG is up for CanPL best XI CM. He is currently in second, but a long way off of Becker. If you want to vote, you can do it here:
  16. If anyone is coming to watch the game at Nicolinos today, we are going to have a collection bin for Winnipeg Harvest
  17. We posted the vote the day after that game where Attardo scored the two goals, and that likely influenced people. LBG was my vote, and most people I talked to voted for Bustos (who was my runner up) but lots of votes were submitted for Attardo. I think next year I would like to share the vote with our mailing list rather than posting it publicly, so that we can know the results reflect RRR members. I'm not saying they didn't this year, but we can't really know. It might be fun to do a vote here for player of the year, with the usual Voyageurs ranking system. Rather than start a new thread, if people want to tag me in the post, I can tally up the results at the end of day on Sunday. List your top 3 (3 points will go to first, 2 points to second and 1 point to third). I'm with you @Lofty (I added your vote to the tally). My top 3 are: 1. LBG 2. Bustos 3. Petrasso
  18. It was a lot of fun. I think all of the players came except the three that have already left Canada. Attardo was voted Player of the Year and LBG won goal of the year . I put some video up here http://www.redriverrising.ca/player-of-the-year-goal-of-the-year/
  19. We are having an end of season event at the Kings Head tonight (6:30 start). We will give out the RRR Player of the Year award and the Goal of the Year award at 7. Most of the team will be there, but they have to leave at 8:00 because they fly to Victoria early tomorrow. Kids are allowed at the Kings Head until 9:00 and all are welcome!
  20. It looks to me like tickets sold for tonight's game are about 3500. With a temperature around 1 at kick off, on a Wednesday night, I doubt we'll see much walk up traffic, and there will surely be no shows. Unfortunately, it's going to be a sparse crowd tonight. I expect 144 to have a good turnout however, so we'll be bringing the noise to see the season out in Winnipeg ๐Ÿ˜‰
  21. You'd think it would be obvious, but apparently not to everyone...
  22. We have a goal of the year award on the RRR website. Itโ€™s closing soon so we can present it at the Kings Head on Thursday but itโ€™s still open if you want to vote http://www.redriverrising.ca/goal-of-the-year/?fbclid=IwAR3FB01lehJans2sO_P2iAxuMsxL2ug1LO2ElpPBXN3l7xAZj1T94fad7SI
  23. It's official. Valour cannot finish last in the Fall table or the combined table ๐Ÿ˜‰
  24. Lots of NWSL players go to Australia to play in the W league during the off season, mostly to keep fit, but also to supplement the income. I've never noticed anyone seem too fatigued to play when they return, but sometimes the players that play year round seem a bit more injury prone. Considering Sacremento is heading there injured, hopefully they take care not to over do it in New Zealand, as well as when he returns.
