  1. I hope he features regularly, but the Impact have 5 other wingers: Piatti, Okwonkwo, Browne, Bayiha, and Lappalainen. Choinière has also played fairly often as a winger.
  2. I would go with Mathieu Choinière instead of Verhoeven, although both are very good choices, and Carducci as the keeper if he is young enough. Pantemis hasn’t been playing at all.
  3. Why not an MLS team? Canadians would actually be able to see him play.
  4. Kaye should start ahead of Osorio, but it’s very close.
  5. En effet. Un pas dans la bonne direction.
  6. And Piette for Eustaquio if need be. Midfield definitely looking really good!
  7. Yes, I noticed he got beat a few times. In the quarter final match I think Herdman will start Brault-Guillard at RB if we go with 2 FBs.
  8. Crépeau deserves to play one game. If he doesn’t play against Cuba, he probably won’t get to play at all.
  9. Realistically, Cuba is a semi-minnow. I would start Crépeau against Cuba and save Borjan for Costa Rica or Haïti.
  10. Yes, if they retain the apertura/clausura format they should balance the seasons. But if the spring season champion were assured of hosting the final, what incentive, other than pride, would that team have to try to win the summer/fall season?
  11. I agree with the one-game final, but I think it should be hosted by the summer/fall champion. An 18-game season is more difficult to win than a 10-game season, and the spring champion would have incentive to try to win the summer/fall season as well.
  12. As far as I know, Le Bourhis and N'sa are both natural CBs.
  13. Yohan Le Bourhis - 2000 - Montréal Impact Academy.
  14. Oh well, instead I'm going to watch Real Salt Lake vs Montréal Impact.
  15. You're still probably getting a pretty good deal compared to the ticket prices of most of the other CPL teams.
  16. Thomas has played well, but I think Choinière will start, with Thomas coming in as a sub if needed.
  17. 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.
  18. Thanks, Corazon, for the good work you’re doing. A little while ago Montreal Impact recalled Daniel Kinumbe (LB) from Ottawa Fury.
  19. Thomas playing beside Henry on our national team? That’s actually not a bad idea.
  20. 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.
  21. I don’t like that either. They should change that rule.
  22. 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.
  23. Beginning today, Forge play 4 games in 13 days. They pretty much have to do a lot of squad rotation.
