  1. I'm noticing what I think is a significant lack of respect towards the Voyageurs Cup and the competition itself this year from media and the casual fan. Amongst other things: - Never calling the Voyageurs Cup by its name. With the exception of the FC Edmonton broadcast it's always called the Canadian Cup or the Amway Cup or the CanChamp. - Lack of television coverage for semifinal games - Calls for the tournament to be changed to a Cascadia Cup because MLS teams have too many games - Significant drops in attendance. Maybe not on paper, but in terms of butts in seats there don't seem to be many. Watching the Voyageurs Cup in 2011 is what got me hooked on this game from casual fan to superfan. Since this competition was born from the brains of supporters, I wonder what we can do as supporters to grow the competition, and make the Voyageurs Cup more meaningful to all Canadian clubs?
  2. Until next time have a great soccer! @OfftheWoodworkx @KevLaramee https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/off-woodworkx-soccer-podcast/id644040569?mt=2 http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/off-the-woodworkx http://feeds.feedburner.com/rapidfeeds/iekP http://facebook.com/offthewoodworkx http://canadiansoccernews.com
  3. Yes they did beat TFC in a home and away series, but it never was done with a statement victory on enemy territory. Montreal is going into Wednesday night’s game with a 1-0 advantage , thanks to a 1-0 win at Stade Saputo last Wednesday. Is a one goal advantage enough against a team that will have a star filled lineup? Can the Impact, who are struggling really badly in league play but garnered great results in home and away series lately (CCL), hold the home side to a clean sheet? Can IMFC get that valuable away goal and get that statement win that can re-spark your team? I believe so yes, so yes to all of the above. Call me an optimist, call me crazy, but I do feel the now famous Concacaf run of the Impact and all the experiences of playing in games with no tomorrows will be beneficial for the Bleu-Blanc-Noir. The style of play that is and was the most successful in the last couple of months is obviously the counter attack style, having an advantage, a slight one but an advantage still, heading into the second leg does give IMFC an opportunity to go back to the style that saw them make their way in the Concacaf Champions League and can give a player like Dom Oduro a very good chance to get open and free on that counter. Of course Montreal has to possess the ball more then against Club America, but the onus of play is definitely on Toronto FC, being behind on aggregate and also struggling in league play. You can expect TFC’s biggest star to play on Wednesday, even if they are pretty quiet about it, the Voyageur’s Cup but especially the CCL is on Toronto’s radar, like Collin Warner was telling me after the first leg. It is not going to be easy, Montreal will have to absorb a lot of pressure, they will have to contain players like Altidore and Giovinco but especially Michael Bradley. If Bradley is allowed to dictate the pace of play in the midfield like last week, it will be a long night for the Impact. Montreal lost to Portland 2-1 Saturday, Toronto lost to Houston 1-0 on Sunday, so both team are coming off losses. Toronto is 5th in the Eastern Conference with 9 points after 8 games played for a ppg of 1.13. Montreal is 10th and last in the Eastern Conference with 2 points after 5 games played for a ppg of 0.4. This will be the 22nd edition of the 401 Derby, Montreal’s record in the derby; 5 wins, 10 losses and 6 draws with 19 goals for and 29 goals against.

  6. The tie was effectively over after the initial 15 minutes, with Lance Laing once again causing havoc down the Eddies' left flank. His aggression and counter-attacking speed was simply too much for the Fury to handle, who had pushed numbers forward from the get-go. Both of the Eddies' goals came from counters, though Laing was standing still when delivering both of the crosses into the penalty area that led to the goals, with Tomi Ameobi and Sainey Nyassi the beneficiaries in the end. Andrew Wiedeman brought one back from a nice little chip pass from Nicki Paterson, with Wieds registering his first goal in Fury colours. Near the end of HT, Wiedeman had a very good shout for a PK, being tripped up from behind by Eddies defender Albert Watson, but Drew Fischer, who was the referee for the infamous 2nd leg between Edmonton and Montreal in the 2014 VCup semis, did not give the call. Sinisa Ubiparipovic was also hip-checked in the area before HT, to no avail. The Eddies finished the tie off once and for all with a PK conversion in the 81st minute by Daryl Fordyce. At the end of the day, despite the number of penalty calls that did not come the Fury’s way, the Ottawa side were not good enough to overcome the Eddies. Questions are starting to be asked about the Fury’s defense and its killer instinct in the opponent’s penalty area, and Laing once again proved to be a decisive figure in a Voyageurs Cup tie. All credit to the Fury players for fighting until the end, and full credits must go to Colin Miller and FC Edmonton, who now represent the Canadian NASL contingent in a tasty semi-final showdown vs. Vancouver, while Toronto and Montreal will butt heads in the other semi in the 2015 VCup, with a 2016/17 CONCACAF Champions League spot on the line --- 2015 Fury FC Canadian Championship (Voyageurs Cup) – Preliminary Round, 2nd Leg – FC Edmonton vs. Ottawa Fury FC Review – 3-1 L (6-2 L on aggregate) When: Wednesday, April 29, 2015 @ 10:00pm EDT Where: Clarke Stadium, Edmonton, AB (Watch at CanadaSoccer.com; Listen at TSN 1200 FM) Ottawa Injuries and Suspensions: CM Phil Davies (out – arm, expected back Fall Season), DM Richie Ryan (out – ankle, 1-2 weeks), LB Mike Randolph (out – knock), CAM Oliver (out – knock) Ottawa Returnees: LB/LW Brandon Poltronieri (return – knock) Ottawa Lineup – (4-3-3) – Peiser 6; Poltronieri 5, Trafford 5 (Eustaquio 80′), Falvey 7, Richter 6; Ubiparipovic 7, Beckie 6, Paterson 7 (Heinemann 57′, 6); Paulo Jr. 6 (Misik 80′), Wiedeman 8, Haworth 6 Ottawa Subs - DeBellis, Rafael Alves, Eustaquio, de Guzman, Misik, Heinemann Edmonton Lineup – (4-1-4-1) – VanOekel, Moses, Watson, Roberts, Edward, Laing (Nonni 46′), Fordyce, Raudales (Burt 71′), Jones, Nyassi (Boakai 81′), Ameobi Ottawa Goal/Assist – Wiedeman (Paterson 32′) Edmonton Goals – Ameobi (8′), Nyassi (14′), Fordyce (81′) --- You can follow Namu Yoon on Twitter at @BBSC_SeoulBro and @OFFCReview, and his Canadian Soccer News articles on Ottawa Fury FC at http://www.canadiansoccernews.com/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/ottcityfootie and https://offcreview.wordpress.com.
  7. The winner from the 2 legs moves on to face Vancouver Whitecaps FC in the semifinals, with the winner of the tourney guaranteed a spot in the 2016/17 CONCACAF Champions League. The Eddies hold a significant advantage going into the leg, with a 1-3 away victory one week ago in Ottawa. Ottawa dominated the 1st half of the 1st leg last week, entering halftime at 1-0, but the introduction of Lance Laing completely changed the dynamics of the play, with Edmonton scoring 3 unanswered goals in the final 10 minutes of the game. FC Edmonton comes off a NASL bye week, while the Fury lost to Ft. Lauderdale 1-3 at home on Saturday, with the lone goal coming off a corner kick from Ubiparipovic, which was converted by Rafael Alves. The Fury FC announced today that Oliver and Mike Randolph picked up knocks during the weekend and will miss the game, alongside Richie Ryan and Phil Davies, who have more long-term injuries. Chris Hofley has again hinted at a possible rotation in for Mason Trafford and Drew Beckie for this match. These cup ties are precisely the times when the boys need us the most, let’s get behind the lads as they go for a huge comeback in Edmonton, or at least go all out trying. We’re with you, lads. Fury FC, let’s do this ****. --- 2015 Fury FC Canadian Championship (Voyageurs Cup) – Preliminary Round, 2nd Leg – FC Edmonton vs. Ottawa Fury FC Preview When: Wednesday, April 29, 2015 @ 10:00pm EDT Where: Clarke Stadium, Edmonton, AB (Watch at OttawaFuryFC.com, CanadaSoccer.com; Listen at TSN 1200 FM) Ottawa Injuries and Suspensions: CM Phil Davies (out – arm, expected back Fall Season), DM Richie Ryan (out – ankle, 1-2 weeks), LB Mike Randolph (out – knock), CAM Oliver (out – knock) Ottawa Returnees: LB/LW Brandon Poltronieri (return – knock) Ottawa Previous Matchday Lineup – 1-3 L vs. Ft.

  8. Fury FC Observations – Talking points: The NASL Canada derby continues to get heated, with good banter pre and post-match on Twitter between opposing fans. Fury draws 2,500 on a chilly Wednesday evening opposite Game 4 of the Sens-Habs series. Lance Laing enters the field on the 60th minute and proceeds to inspire the Eddies to a rousing comeback after 1st half domination by Fury FC, as Edmonton runs out 1-3 winners. In other words, FC Edmonton < Ottawa Fury FC < Lance Laing. – Lineup and formation: Ottawa started the match in a 4-2-3-1 formation for the 3rd game in a row, hoping for the good vibes from the well-controlled possession vs. Minnesota on the weekend. There were 2 changes to the starting lineup, as Andrew Wiedeman was rotated in for Tom Heinemann and Sinisa Ubiparipovic made his first appearance after a late preseason injury, coming in at CAM at the expense of Carl Haworth. The team shape remained 4-2-3-1 throughout the whole game and all the substitutions. Diagram courtesy of Ottawa Fury FC. And Gabriel Pizza, niceee. Note, Paterson was LCM, JDG was RCM. – Canadian content: While only 1 Canadian started the game (Canada captain Julian de Guzman), 6 of the 7 on the bench were Canadians, with Patryk Misik and Carl Haworth coming on in the 2nd half. – Play: The 1st half was dominated by Ottawa, with one commentator noting that the number of shots was at 9-0 in Ottawa’s favour at one point in the match. Of note was the clever passing of Sinisa Ubiparipovic, the willingness to shoot by Oliver, who took advantage of a mixup off a long throw-in to put the Fury up 1-0 within 55 seconds, and the strong fullback display by Brandon Poltronieri. The introduction of Lance Laing completely changed the dynamic of the game in the 60th minute, with the left winger putting dangerous FKs on target, and providing a lethal combination of speed, energy and skill. Laing certainly brought the energy up on Edmonton’s part; however, an Edmonton PK earned after a soft handball call on Ryan Richter was saved by Peiser after Laing telegraphed his shot at the 63rd minute mark. Yet, the ball stayed in Ottawa’s half for the majority of the 2nd half, and Daryl Fordyce applied a predatory off-the-ball run and finish when Peiser spilled a fierce 25-yarder from Ameobi around the 82nd minute to make the game 1-1. Disaster struck for Ottawa when Laing eyed Julian de Guzman’s pass around his own penalty area the moment it left his feet, and swooped in like a vulture on to Rafael Alves to dispossess him of the ball at full speed, and then calmly applied the finish to put the game at 1-2 at the 88th minute. Soon after, Ottawa had a very good shout for a PK for a handball by an Eddies defender, who deflected the ball on to the post. Photo courtesy of Rogers TV and Phil (@GimmeMyJetpack). Then, in the 4th minute of injury time, Laing played a sumptuous give-and-go and outpaced Richter, who tried his valiant best to keep up, and delivered an inch-perfect cross between Romuald Peiser and Colin Falvey for Tomi Ameobi to finish, putting the Eddies up 1-3 away in what amounted to an incredible turnaround for the two teams. The Eddies did not have many chances during the game, but they were ruthless with the chances they did make. Miracles can happen and the Fury can still progress, and I never throw in the towel when it comes to sports. But last night was easily the most painful loss in Fury’s young history. – Looking forward: I say this with much love for Fury FC and the club, but I believe that Marc Dos Santos can’t always refer to the refs or say things like “just give em the ticket [to the Voyageurs Cup semi-finals]” in the post-game media scrum. Instead, Dos Santos has to admit defeat graciously when the better team has won for the night and express that sentiment to both the media and his players; that’s how the team learns and moves forward together. As the leader, he has to be the first one to congratulate Edmonton on the game and talk about preparation for the next league match against Ft. Lauderdale, as well as the 2nd leg next Wednesday at Edmonton. However, all Fury FC fans know and can see how much passion MDS has for Fury FC, the city of Ottawa and the fans. I believe that we will rebound strongly from yesterday, and that MDS is just the guy to lead the charge. I loved the fact that MDS said that he wants to be the Diego Simeone of Ottawa Fury FC; Simeone is a great role model for football managers and the fact that MDS is looking to emulate his coaching philosophy bodes well, in my humble opinion, for Ottawa footy. – Ottawa MotM: Brandon Poltronieri; Ottawa Honourable Mentions: Oliver, Sinisa Ubiparipovic — Key Fury FC Moments 1′ Ottawa Goal – Richter takes a long throw-in that bounces a bit around the penalty area before Oliver volleys it into the net, 1-0 Ottawa 7′ Edmonton – Eddies with a decent chance but good defensive clearance from Poltronieri 22′ Ottawa – Wiedeman with the curler from just outside the area, close! 38′ Ottawa – Beauty little reverse pass outside the area from Ubi, but Wieds cant finish it with his left foot 42′ Ottawa – VanOekel with the blunder, and Wiedeman cuts in front and gets ball first, but can’t finish from the tight angle 49′ Ottawa – Oliver with a snap shot just high from a nice Ubi pass. JDG follows up with a shot from far that goes over the bar 63′ Edmonton – Richter called for handball and then PEISER W THE PK SAVE ON LAING 66′ Edmonton – Peiser with the sick save on a Laing FK and then comes out hard to narrow angle on a shot from the subsequent play 82′ Edmonton Goal – Shot from outside the area saved by Peiser but the juicy rebound tucked from close range by Fordyce, 1-1 85′ Edmonton Goal – A **** play by JDG and Rafael Alves. JDG has been misplacing passes more than he should from the CM position, and his pass along the area is picked off by Laing from a retreating Alves, who should have cleared it before-hand, 1-2 93′ Edmonton Goal – Lance Goddamn Laing needed 30 minutes to carve Ottawa up. A nice give-and-go sees Laing outpace Richter before delivering an inch-perfect cross between Falvey and Peiser for Ameobi, 1-3 Edmonton --- 2015 Fury FC Canadian Championship (Voyageurs Cup) – Preliminary Round, 1st Leg – Ottawa Fury FC vs. FC Edmonton Review – 1-3 L When: Wednesday, April 22, 2015 @ 7:30pm EDT Where: TD Place Stadium, Lansdowne Park, Ottawa, ON (Watch at OttawaFuryFC.com, CanadaSocer.com; Listen at 580 CFRA AM) Ottawa Injuries and Suspensions: CM Phil Davies (out – arm, 6-8 weeks), DM Richie Ryan (out – ankle, 3-4 weeks) Ottawa Lineup (4-2-3-1) (L to R): Peiser 6; Poltronieri 8, Falvey 5, Rafael Alves 6, Richter 6; Paterson 6, De Guzman 4; Paulo Jr. 6, Ubiparipovic 7 (Misik 69’, 6), Oliver 7 (Haworth 80’); Wiedeman 6 (Heinemann 72’) Ottawa Bench: DeBellis, Beckie, Trafford, Eustaquio, Misik, Haworth, Heinemann Edmonton Lineup (4-1-4-1) (L to R): VanOekel; Moses, Watson, Roberts, Edward; Granitto (Raudales 60’); Smith (Laing 59’), Jalali (Fordyce 70’), Jones, Nyassi; Ameobi Ottawa Goals/Assists: Oliver (Richter 1′) Edmonton Goals/Assists: Fordyce 82′, Laing 87′, Ameobi 90′ YouTube: Highlights – ;Full Match – You can follow Namu Yoon on Twitter at @BBSC_SeoulBro and @OFFCReview, and his Canadian Soccer News articles on Ottawa Fury FC at http://www.canadiansoccernews.com/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/ottcityfootie and https://offcreview.wordpress.com.
  9. The winner from the 2 legs moves on to face Vancouver in the semifinals, with the winner of the tourney guaranteed a spot in the 2016/17 CONCACAF Champions League. As you can guess, tonight’s game is a massive one for Ottawa and Edmonton fans. The two clubs faced off at the same stage in 2014, with a 0-0 draw in Ottawa in windy conditions followed by a 3-1 win for Edmonton at home in the 2nd leg, enabling the Eddies to progress. They would go on to lose to Montreal in a heart-breaking fashion in the 7th minute of 2nd half injury time in the 2nd leg, due to a brutal call from the referee. The Impact went on to win the 2014 V Cup, and have progressed throughout the year in the 2014/15 CONCACAF Champions League, and are playing the 1st leg of the CCL Final tonight. The connection from the 1st leg of the preliminary round a year ago to the CCL final today seems profound today. There are a ton of talking points for today’s game, and a ton of trash talk flying on Twitter at this very moment as well. This game is notable for being both the first fixture in the 2015 V Cup, as well as the number of Canadians that will get minutes on both sides today. – Fury FC notes: Richie Ryan picked up a knee injury in training over the weekend and has been ruled out for 3 to 4 weeks, joining Phil Davies on the sidelines. While Chris Hofley had been hinting at a possible rotation in for Mason Trafford and Mike Randolph for this match, Richard Starnes has published what he believes to be the full starting XI, with the only player rotated in being Andrew Wiedeman, while Sinisa Ubiparipovic makes his return from injury to the CAM role for Carl Haworth, who is struggling with a bout of the flu. Canada MNT captain Julian de Guzman makes his return to the Voyageurs Cup, after having won it 3 times from 2010 to 2012 with Toronto FC, while Ubiparipovic boasts one cup triumph as well with Montreal in 2013. Rafael Alves and Tom Heinemann were named to the NASL Team of the Week for matchday 3 for their respective defensive and offensive performances vs. Minnesota, in a huge morale-boosting 1-0 win on Saturday. – FC Edmonton notes: The Eddies had a couple players of their own named to the NASL TotW, with Sainey Nyassi, and Tomi Ameobi earning the plaudits after the 3-2 comeback win over Ft. Lauderdale on Sunday. Lance Laing has been the key man for the Eddies for the past two seasons, and Ottawa is no stranger to his runs on the left flank, while Nyassi patrols the opposite flank. Laing’s corner kick goal from last year has remained a bit of a sore spot for Fury fans. Eddie Edward makes his return to Ottawa, which is always sure to be greeted by his family and friends in Ottawa, with the player born and bred in the nation’s capital and having come up through the youth academy and PDL side in Ottawa, and making a MLS appearance as well with Dallas. --- 2015 Fury FC Canadian Championship (Voyageurs Cup) – Preliminary Round, 1st Leg – Ottawa Fury FC vs. FC Edmonton Preview When: Wednesday, April 22, 2015 @ 7:30pm EDT Where: TD Place Stadium, Lansdowne Park, Ottawa, ON (Watch at OttawaFuryFC.com, CanadaSoccer.com; Listen at 580 CFRA AM) Ottawa Injuries and Suspensions: CM Phil Davies (out – arm, 6-8 weeks), DM Richie Ryan (out – ankle, 3-4 weeks), RW Carl Haworth (doubtful – illness) Ottawa Possible Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1) (R to L): Peiser; Richter, Rafael Alves, Falvey, Poltronieri; de Guzman, Paterson; Oliver, Ubiparipovic, Paulo Jr.; Wiedeman Ottawa Possible Bench: DeBellis, Beckie, Trafford, Randolph, Misik, Haworth, Heinemann Edmonton Previous Matchday Lineup – 3-2 W – (4-1-4-1) (L to R) – VanOekel; Moses, Watson, Roberts, Edward; Raudales (Granitto); Laing, Burt (Jalali), Jones, Nyassi; Jonke (Ameobi) Edmonton Players to Watch: Lance Laing, Sainey Nyassi, Eddie Edward Previous Match: Oct 18, 2014 – NASL – Ottawa Fury FC vs. FC Edmonton – 0-2 L – https://offcreview.wordpress.com/2014/10/20/nasl-2014-matchday-25-ottawa-vs-edmonton-review/ --- The Fury FC picked up a 1-0 victory over MLS-bound Minnesota on Saturday in their season home opener. I was standing in the supporters section with the Bytown Boys on Saturday and have yet to have had the chance to rewatch the match fully on YouTube, due to a very busy week. The quick observations that can be taken from the match is that the new 4-2-3-1 formation is paying off significant dividends for the Fury, with JDG, Nicki Paterson, Richie Ryan, Patryk Misik and Mauro Eustaquio all more than suitable for the 2 DM positions. JDG in particular had an outstanding 2nd half, making tackles left and right, while Tom Heinemann scored the winner in the 67th minutes off a side-footer after nifty footwork to beat a Minny defender. Paulo Jr. has proven to be the x-factor for the Fury with his dynamic wing play, which has added an extra dimension to what the Fury have had in 2014. The Fury FC had picked up what was only their 2nd victory at TD Place in history, since their move during the 2014 summer break. The players were ecstatic after the match, with at least 5 players jumping into the supporters section in Section W after the game to receive the plaudits from the supporters. --- 2015 Fury FC NASL Season – Matchday 3 – Ottawa Fury FC vs. Minnesota United FC Review – 1-0 W When: Saturday, April 18, 2015 @ 3:00pm EDT Where: TD Place Stadium, Lansdowne Park, Ottawa, ON (Watch at OttawaFuryFC.com, Rogers TV 22, RogersTV.com, TSN Go, ESPN 3; Listen at TSN 1200 AM, 94,5 Unique FM) Ottawa Injuries and Suspensions: CM Phil Davies (out – arm) Ottawa Returnees: LW Paulo Jr. (short-term knock – return to starting lineup); DM Richie Ryan, AM Sinisa Ubiparipovic (mid-term injury – return to bench); CM Julian de Guzman (1-game suspension) Ottawa (4-2-3-1) – Peiser; Poltronieri, Falvey, Rafael Alves, Richter; de Guzman, Paterson; Paulo Jr. (Ryan 76′), Oliver (Misik 87′), Haworth; Heinemann (Wiedeman 68′) Ottawa Subs: DeBellis, Trafford, Beckie, Ubiparipovic Minnesota (4-1-4-1) – Ndjock; Davis, Calvano, Dias, Kallman; Vicentini (Alhassan 67’); Steele, Ibson (Pitchkolan 33’), Ibarra, Mendes (Campos 74’); Ramirez Ottawa Goal/Assist – Heinemann 67′ Minnesota Goal – None You can follow Namu Yoon on Twitter at @BBSC_SeoulBro and @OFFCReview, and his Canadian Soccer News articles on Ottawa Fury FC at http://www.canadiansoccernews.com/index.php?/page/articles.html/_/ottcityfootie and https://offcreview.wordpress.com.
