    Carver won't rush young gun
    Ibrahim already raising eyebrows even though he's just 16 years old

    MORGAN CAMPBELL
    SPORTS REPORTER
    The newest member of Toronto FC isn't old enough to vote or buy alcohol, or even drive by himself on Ontario highways.
    Abdus Ibrahim received his licence just six months ago in the U.S. and is still too new a driver to qualify for full privileges here.
    But head coach John Carver doesn't think the 16-year-old striker is too young to fit in to the team's plans.
    The question is, how soon?
    Last year FC Dallas selected Ibrahim, then just 15, in the second round of the MLS Superdraft.
    Ibrahim won't comment on the situation that led to him leaving Dallas, but he's been in Toronto nearly three weeks, practising with TFC and living with an uncle in North York.
    Last Friday, TFC completed a trade with Dallas to make him an official member of the team, and Carver said that if Ibrahim's work permit had been processed in time, Ibrahim would have dressed for last Saturday's game against Colorado.
    But dressing is a long way from playing.
    Just ask Julius James.

    Canada confident heading into second leg


    The Canadian Press
    June 18, 2008 at 6:30 PM EDT

    MONTREAL — The lush grass pitch at the new Saputo Stadium proved more than acceptable for Paul Stalteri, captain of Canada's national soccer team.
    “It's fantastic,” the veteran defender for English club Fulham said Wednesday after his team's first workout at the host stadium for their World Cup qualifying match against St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
    “I can't remember the last time I've been on a pitch in Canada that's so nice and flush and flat and smooth. It's up there with the best in Europe.”
    Canada hopes to use the Saputo surface, at the wide end of regulation size, to dazzle the Caribbean islanders for a second match in a row when they meet on Friday night. The Canadians emerged from the first leg of the two-game total-goals series with a 3-0 victory in St. Vincent on Sunday.
    A win would put Canada into Stage 3 of qualifying in the CONCACAF zone, which will be a round robin tournament against Mexico, Honduras and Jamaica beginning in August.
    The top two from that group reach the final qualifying stage, a six-team round robin in which the top three go to the World Cup in South Africa in 2010. The fourth-place team also has a chance, but must beat the fifth-place side from South America.

    Stalteri is such a little bitch. Has he even stepped foot on BMO field? Or is he just bashing it just cause. I've played on real grass pitches and BMO field, the only difference is the speed of the ball. What a baby...

    Stalteri is captain of your national team. Who are you?

    (other than someone hiding behind the anonymity of the internet to spew at known, respected people).

    I'm sorry, what did he say to 'bash' BMO? Maybe I missed it.

    He's a bitch because he likes the real grass? Isn't that what we want at BMO?

    Also, the Ibrahim article seems a little incomplete.....no?

    Gotta say, that is a pretty good result for the Earthquakes at Rice-Eccles, especially being down a man for the 2nd half.

    So let me get this straight. NYRB and NER DREW???

    which means if Columbus lose to LA ()not likely, and we get the points vs NER, we OWN 2nd. wow.

    Sorry guys. . still coming to terms with the fact that we will most likely have POST SEASON TFC GAMES TO GO TO !!!!

    (oh. . and CONCACAF of course!)

    (oh. . . and Canada may qualify for 2010)

    (oh. .. . and TFC may bring the MLS CUp home)

    holy fuckin shit!

    Is this the best year for Canadian Soccer ever?


    PS - REAL GRASS PLEASE$!$!$!$!$!$!$!

    I'm surprised they're sitting on 3 wins already. I haven't seen their roster in 2 months, so I still think they only have 9 players signed. heh.
