  1. Some good news for TFC academy. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/06/25/toronto-fc-beats-lafc-win-first-u-15-development-academy-national-title
  2. I don't think TSN has any on the beat soccer reporters. Even for TFC games they just use Canadian Press reports. They do have an article about Davies, but that's from CP as well. https://www.tsn.ca/canada-s-davies-a-gold-cup-player-to-watch-after-stellar-debut-1.1321919
  3. Our last 2 games in Cuba were played on Estadio Marrero in 2008 and 2004. Both were WC qualifiers
  4. That's the way it is in the CCL, so might as well do it this way here.
  5. Both teams with Canadian content; Paris Gee for St. Louis and Raheem Edwards for Fire
  6. MLS player salaries are out: http://mlsplayers.org/resources/salary-guide Piette is a real bargain. Makes less than Jackson-Hamel
  7. T&T faces Canada in a closed-door match on Monday at 3pm (6pm TT time) as both teams continue their preparations for the Gold Cup. T&T captain Khaleem Hyland spoke about the state of the team less than two weeks ahead of the opening clash with Panama in Minnesota. Found this on the TTFA website
  8. Vanney seems to have a thing for tall strikers with no skills. This is 3 in a row now; Spencer, Bakero, Boyd
  9. The signing is reported on the Club's website. Signed till 2021. https://www.fcingolstadt.de/news/9333-tempo-und-durchschlagskraft-caniggia-elva-wechselt-zum-fci/
  10. Where he goes depends a lot where his agent has connections. Acoording tp transfermrkt he is with a German agency whose players are mostly in the German leagues.
  11. The deal was made when the stadium was built.It was also called The National Soccer stadium with CSA participating in the building of the stadium.It was one of the host stadiums for u20 WC in 2007. There was a thread in regards to this a few years ago.
  12. Sorry didn't pay attention to the question, but there is no games listed for the men's team playing in Hamilton,ON. Just wondering if that agreement between CSA and BMO field about playing a number of games there each year is still in effect. I
  13. The last time the CMNT played in the Marimes was in 1992 in St. John,NB against the US that I could find.Attendance was 3500. Prior to that was that game in St John's in 1985.St. John's also hosted a game in 1972.
  14. CHCH the Hamilton TV station showed the match highlights on their morning show
  15. Q is on the provision 40 man roster for Guyana for the Gold Cup along with Emery Welshman
  16. Saw a couple of Pacific FC fans at the TFC game Sunday night sitting near me. One has his PFC scarf out for the anthem.
  17. You can't base an opinion on season long attendance a midweek Cup game against an unknown to most people amateur side. I'm not sure even TFC or the Whitecaps would get much better numbers against Blainville if it wasn't part of theST package
  18. Agree with you totally. Pretty sure the owners of York 9 are in it for a long haul. They wouldn't invest this kind of money just to bail out quickly. Greenpark Homes has been a supporter of soccer for a long time. I've been involved with a couple of soccer organizations that have benefitted from their generosity.
  19. I'm not sure where all this reserve team is still coming from. The only MLS team that has is TFC and they've gone down a level. I can see them putting reserve teams in CPL 2 if it comes to fruitation down the road.
  20. I wonder if TFC got the bye due to the fact that they had to win The Voyageurs twice to get 1 slot in the CCL when CONCACAF changed the format. That to me would be the only reason for them get this advantage.
  21. The attendance for those was good in part to the push with the youth clubs in the area through CSA and Umbro. I know that the club i was involved with had a large section for each of the games. We got our tickets through Umbro as our club was using their uniforms aqs well. Hope that is done with Nike as well. They own Umbro now anyways (I think).
  22. The exhibition game vs the US at BMO was in June 2012 with 15247 in attendance. There was a pretty large contingent of American fans as they even did a march to the stadium. That year all 3 WC qualifiers were at BMO with attendances of 16132 for Honduras, 17586 Panama and 17712 for Cuba. I know that I attended at least 3 of the 4 games. Pretty sure there was a couple of Cuban players that defected prior to the game.
  23. I was visiting relatives in northern Sask. and during discussion they told me that a lot of their friends and neighbours go to Rush to support Saskatchewan teams. I asked them if they would there be similar kind of support for a soccer team and their thoughts were there would be. For the trip I was asked to bring some TFC merchandise( asked for anything with a TFC logo) for some youngsters in their neighbourhood.
