    Kent got a reaction from Bbeto in Match Thread: Voyageurs Cup - Quarter-Final - Toronto FC v York United - September 22, 2021   
    I'm pumped for this game. I've got my ticket. Downloaded my vax receipt. York 9 jersey is clean. I'm ready to go. I think York United have a decent chance of winning this game (despite the legendary Gareth Wheeler saying it's impossible for York to beat TFC tomorrow). They also have a chance of losing by 3 or 4, but still.

    Kent got a reaction from Jedi Ram in FIFA rankings - why they are important and how to beat the system   
    Here's a fun little thing. Here is a map of the world, with every country that was ranked ahead of Canada 7 years ago coloured blue. We were ranked 120th.
     

    Here is the same map for today, ranked 51st.

     
    If you are curious or want to play around, here is the website where I made the maps. This has the countries filled in from the 2nd map.

    Kent got a reaction from narduch in Future Champions League & CONCACAF League format   
    Positives:
    - 2 spots for CPL teams
    - Canadian MLS teams treated the same as American MLS teams
    Negatives:
    - CPL is the only league with no chance of getting a bye past the first round of CCL
    - Qualifying via subcontinental tournaments, I preferred the "One CONCACAF" type of vision
    - The number of spots for each country are determined in a boardroom, instead of based on results/CONCACAF Club Index
    - CONCACAF League disappears, which I thought was good for clubs/countries to find their level
    - Still no group stage. Bring back the group stage please!
    Unknown:
    - Have they said how the CCL final host will be determined? If it's the higher seeded team based on their results in the tournament, that's acceptable to me. If it's drawn from a hat, that's acceptable to me (as long as it's a legit draw of course). If it's predetermined, or determined based on potential ticket sales (i.e. always in the USA, or always at the bigger club) then that sucks.

    That clears it up for me. I figured you were just curious in an innocent sort of way, which comes across in your explaination, so thanks.
    Others may still want you to remove it and it may be a good idea for the peace of the board, but I am fine either way. 
    Cheers

    Kent got a reaction from rkomar in Quillan Roberts   
    I loved it too. The craziest thing about it is that he almost scored one or two times before the goal. One shot/long ball in particular, the opposing goalie was decently far out of his net. The ball landed in front of him and he had to react quickly to get his hands up and block it from going over his head and in the net. A bit more arc on the bounce and it would have gone in. You could actually see it coming. After a couple of plays similar to that I said to my wife (then girlfriend, not that it matters to the story) that he was going to score.

    “Quillan Roberts, the Canada goalkeeper at the 2011 U-17 World Cup, scored a late equaliser against England, having had possession for at least 15 seconds before scoring (it took another four seconds for the ball to hit the net).” We count 19.51 seconds before it bobbles in. Unlikely to be beaten."
