  1. Thomas has played well, but I think Choinière will start, with Thomas coming in as a sub if needed.
  2. In Quebec City, the stadium at Laval University is the one most suitable for a CPL team. It’s called Stade TELUS–Université Laval and it can seat a little less than 13,000 people. It has an artificial turf playing field lined for gridiron football. I have attended many Laval Rouge et Or gridiron football games there. There is enough room to install a 115 yard x 75 yard soccer field without removing the running track, but a soccer field 115 yards long would encroach on the gridiron end zones, which consist of red-coloured turf. Ideally the current turf would have to be replaced. There’s a nice little stadium at Collège F.X. Garneau, which seats about 2,000 people and has a grandstand on one side. The artificial turf there is lined for gridiron football. There is also Stade CANAC, in Quebec City’s lower town, where the Québec Capitales professional baseball team plays. It seats a little less than 5,000 people and has an artificial turf playing field. It’s designed for baseball.
  3. Thanks, Corazon, for the good work you’re doing. A little while ago Montreal Impact recalled Daniel Kinumbe (LB) from Ottawa Fury.
  4. Thomas playing beside Henry on our national team? That’s actually not a bad idea.
  5. The guy’s name is Choinière. Thought he played well, but somewhat conservatively most of the time. He’s quite capable of taking guys on and dribbling by them, but he didn’t try much of that tonight.
  6. I don’t like that either. They should change that rule.
  7. What’s up with Choinière? Could be Forge’s best winger, yet he hasn’t played at all. And I don’t think they’d have taken him to Halifax if he isn’t fit to play.
  8. Beginning today, Forge play 4 games in 13 days. They pretty much have to do a lot of squad rotation.
  9. Cabrera is not starting regularly for Montreal. The starting CBs are Diallo and Raitala.
  10. Even in gridiron football that would have been a flag for hitting a player who is out of bounds.
  11. I thought Forge looked impressive with their attacking options: Welshman, Nanco, Borges, Bekker, Thomas, Zajac. Also Awuah at left back. And Choinière didn’t even play. Goal scoring definitely won’t be their weakness.
  12. Two nice goals as a sub in Montreal’s away game again New England. Could he play a super sub role for our National Team?
  13. They have 10 international slots.
  14. Bayiha is a very promising young player and It’s great to see him getting some minutes. But when Piatti returns from injury and when the Impact sign Omar Browne, Montreal will have 4 foreign wingers (Piatti, Novillo, Okwonkwo and Browne). Unless there are injuries to those players, it will be difficult for Bayiha to regularly make the bench this season. But I hope I’m wrong.
