  1. Lille is playing AZ Almaar in a friendly today... live stream on YouTube.
  2. Leeds United is a Legacy club like Nottingham Forest. They were the the best club in England in the 60-70s basically the Don Revie era they were runners up in two European Cup finals and won numerous league titles and cups. They won the last first division in 1991 before the premier league started. They hve fallen on hard times in Recent years but have one of the largest fan based in England outside of the top 6. There is a great doc on Amazon that goes into Leeds United. Worth a watch. They are an Elite club The premier league has a different level of physicality and pressure. If things don’t go your way after 5-6 games especially as a striker( ask Morata at Chelsea) u can be written off. So will be a real challenge but they hve a world class manager and a very good team which they will definitely be looking to improve im not saying Leeds is the right fit for Jonny or not Just wanted to be clear they are a BIG club and with Bielsa in charge and the right amount of money don’t right them off.
  3. As far as I know not a single player from that video made it past u16 at TFC or plays pro. Except Liam. (If anyone knows different please let me know) there were some really quality players there a keeper named Alex. A defender named Jayden A striker who’s name I can’t remember. . Glen M and Shaun Hundal came to TFC a few years later than this video Ryan Raposo wasn’t selected as part of that group. (too small again, Liam and Ryan played together for one season in Burlington U12) The voice on the tape is Rick Titus btw. A great coach from NMSC and TFC. Played a few games for TFC too ... sorry for my limited replies. the twitter post of my response on here has forced me to be selective in what I’ say. I thought this was a closed group didn’t expect to be quoted.... I even msgd the guy on twitter Asking to take down the post and he blanked me and left it up. Will try to add what I can but won’t talk any specifics at all as don’t want it repeated outside of here ....
  4. Champions!! Amazing for Liam to be a part of such an amazing club and not a bad year to make your senior debut!! Onwards and upwards!! #ynwa!!
  5. Liam doing some press in the UK about Fronzie and the Canmnt... Liam and him really are good friends...
  6. So last response sorry long post and no disrespect meant. Been a long day of painting...😊
  7. I should have known better back to painting the house ... stay safe my friends
  8. No inside info sorry I’m away for work... got that date from twitter
  9. Sorry one more thing it drives me nuts that the bt sports guys call him DAVIS!!!
  10. Be a good tough match up against Reece James Reece is a very very good defender Tough as nails and a no nonsense tactler... spent a year on loan at Wigan last year and was in the championship team of the year at 19... great match up for sure.
  11. Liam got a goal and 3 assists in a 6-0 win o er Sunderland that’s 4 goals and 5 assists since returning from his loan at Kilmarnock
  12. There are amazing coaches out there especially in Canada’s youth system(Liam has a few great ones Rob S, Joey L Charles I and a few others) these kids(Davies David etc..) didn’t get to where they are at n there own. Just more of an inspirational story of pushing through it not giving up Not meant bashing Canadian coaches. There are of course issues of bias and Politics and we need to continue to grow but atm I think we are heading in the right direction Rome wasn’t built in a day and I think the future looks bright...
  13. I’m 6 foot. Liam is now 6’1. he was 12. It was a **** show. Thomas Rongen was the academy manager at the time and was looking for a certain type of player even at 12 Cut Ryan Raposo and a player named Ryan Khedoo( they called him mosquito) Liam and Ryan played for Burlington SC khedoo played for Brampton and where all very tidy technical players. Replaced them with big tall early developers... Made no sense at the time and Liam signed a 3 year contract 9 months later with Fulham FC and then TFC tried to get comp from Fulham. yes really!! I kept the release letter have it framed as a reminded to never give up... i hold no Grudges to TFC probably the best thing to happen to him. On a side note when we got to England and before we signed Fulham did a profile on us (parents) height, weight, history of injuries(knees and stuff) athletic profile( I guess to give an indication of potential size)(just a one Page survey nothing to serious)
  14. Crazy to say that this way 8 years ago today . Not a lot of people know but Liam was soon CUT from The TFC academy for being to small.(some here do) ... to his credit he didn’t sulk or loose faith he put his head down and went to prove them wrong... sorry for sharing this but all players Are on a different pathway a different road and sometimes it’s good to share that things were never easy. People loose sight of that sometimes. He has a long way to go but has come so far !! my message to all players is to never give up ...
  15. Liam is made up ( Young British for really happy) James Milner(was at the game) came up to Liam after the game and said he thought he did really welll!!!!said he put a proper shift in for the team ....
  16. Yes I was there a memory that will stay with me for ever 20 years of his blood sweat and tears so happy for him
  17. Unbelievable performance from back to front from the whole team. To come out and beat a league one team with basically a u20 team. Brilliant so incredibly proud of Liam asked to do a job to press and push and run. He put a proper shift in and did all that an more. That dummy near the end and if Curtis would hve put him in he would have scored for sure. so so proud. . No one can ever take that away from him having played for Liverpool FC in the FA Cup team a winning team. lost for words time for a beer
  18. He has he’s played there twice for the u23s And once with the u18s ... 18s was the fa youth cup quarters vs Arsenal they lost 3-2 don’t remember the u23s games but a crazy place to play...
  19. So it would seem it’s confirmed that no first team players will play in the replay. If Liam doesn’t go out on loan by the end of the window (jan31st)he should have a very good chance of playing. https://www.liverpoolfc.com/news/first-team/384454-jurgen-klopp-reaction-shrewsbury-town-liverpool-fa-cup
  20. Well well.. that’s interesting now...
