    Nope.  You've just the full circle panic, which is a survival mechanism in Canadian soccer.  It's allowed 😏

    We have a winner! This is a great credit to the home crowd as, like it or not, the crowd does influence ref's decisions. I also remember us being denied a couple of absolutely blatant ones away (one at HFX on Petrasso I think comes immediately to mind).
    Not all at the trench end though. The foul on Bustos was at the other end and perhaps others.
    Edit: Actually, all of the first 5 were at the Trench end. Only the 6th and final one was at the other end. Good eye Jono and well done The Trench!!

    He was a starter in more of a playmaking role in attacking midfield with Sligo this past year and was quite good. The League of Ireland has always compared well with the USL and NASL, so he could absolutely be a significant contributor.

    Good for these guys cleaning this up.  But if you are going to be spreading news you might think about multiple sources or double checking things before you rush to post inaccurate click bait.  Unless you dont care about being a credible reporter and want to be ignored like some goober ranting on reddit.

    Yeah Wade Miller.  Sounds like the kits are new designs. And OneSoccer is still the sponsor for season two, from what I have heard.

    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 😉

    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.

    In much the same way as I view "lunch hour" as more of a state of mind than a measurable chronological event.

    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.

    No.
    The universe evolved as it should and the V's Cup lives with the Champions of Canada.  Contested cup style, across multiple leagues, by Canadian based teams.  It's perfect where it is.
