  1. I didn't see it but several people said he had a very slight limp. Described as looking "tender" rather than "setback". I think it's likely he will play just enough for the rest of you league games to be ready to actually contribute in the VCup semi.
  2. Given how he limped off the field on Saturday I don't think Bustos is gonna be a big factor for the rest of the season.
  3. Because that is how you acclimatize young players and help them develop to their full potential. Duh.
  4. Of course it's never been the case before, that's the whole point. The hope is that the current talent and what they can accomplish will make it so that there is more general interest and thus more in depth media coverage to the point where someday scrutiny is routine and intense. When that happens it means we have reached a new level as a soccer nation. I think it's what all of us dream of and there is a chance it is coming.
  5. Based on that game I have no idea either. That was embarrassing. The possession stats flattered our boys who seemed to have trouble with first-touches. We (supporters) like to think we have an impact, but with our team doing so poorly on such a long road trip, I have to wonder if the earlier results really were from home-field advantage. I guess we will find out on Saturday.
  6. That's why I have been muted about us being "top of the table". With the games in hand and our inability to beat Forge it has been a polite fiction that we are leading the league. At this point we need Bustos back and Forge to stumble or we will have to go to Hamilton and take the Microwave Plate which seems like a huge ask.
  7. No, all teams in all the regional leagues should enter the VCup in the first round and bring in the CanPL and MLS teams into the draw in the second round.
  8. I don't think they did but I mostly stopped paying attention to PCSL after the PDL came along and they became pretty much irrelevant to player development.
  9. I was in BC Place for the last CAN - MEX game and yes, yes we do want to play them in Vancouver.
  10. OMG, just put on the OneSoccer feed. That is horrific. 😥
  11. LOL, I would just like to win something and be in the hunt for the double.
  12. I think it is simply down to the Hamilton defence under Bobby. He built a big back line that our generally smaller offence cannot get around.
  13. To be fair, no one seriously believes that this a top-tier league so every club should be selling players eventually. Back in 2019 the PFC owners were very clear that they wanted to be a stepping stone for any player who has what it takes to move up the ladder.
  14. Yeah Bobby has had our number all along, and we have to take points where we can get them. I had people around here telling me not to worry about dropping what should have been easy points against Ottawa but with Forge having two games in hand and now a points difference of only 5 points...
  15. Definitely wish him all the best in the future. Nolan's worth it! <clap, clap, clap-clap-clap>
  16. I thought York agreed to let TFC host? Probably just wishful thinking on my part. In the FA Cup in England, the team that gets drawn to host can let the "bigger" team host for a share of the gate revenue. It is one away small clubs can make some money from these games.
  17. As a totally biased person I think PFC should get home-field advantage for sporting and business reasons. Sporting: the mismatch in "quality" measured in salary dollars and experience of TFC should be slightly evened out by whatever we can get on the pitch from being on our home field. Business: I guarantee we will put more people in the stands than TFC did last night and provide an atmosphere that is far more attractive to TV coverage. Hopefully we are lucky in the coin toss. LOL
  18. That sucks. What happened to the "smaller" club getting to host? And PFC have a league game the same night as TFC.
  19. Yeah not really sure that Mexican clubs would see it that way. That would be declaring MLS was better then they are.
