    Joey going to Joey


    People might think we are dysfunctional management wise but little in this league beats the Stinky Cheese Man.

    Wow. Not even wait for the big rivalry match. Typical for Montreal, and especially for Joey Saputo.

    We should win, especially now that they have let their Garde down.

    its a strong possibility that firing the manager before the end of the season will fire up the remaining staff/players and push to survive with playoff hopes, im not sure mtl is a team that will bounce back here. its a desperation move that tfc is not far removed from itself were it not for a more level headed head office. right??? firing the gaffer before a derby match is a very strong statement by the office.
    mtl wins and everything is back up in the air again in our office i would think. ppl in fancy suits will have to make a move of some kind.
    i personally would not be surprised nor would i mind now if vanney gets tossed should we lose. desperation being the biggest reason. if it works for mtl then we would have to follow suit

    either way. it is classic saputo moment. he really needs to be relieved, he is ruining this rivalry for me. i want to hate mtl but i find myself feeling bad for them instead.
    tfc win 3-1 and vanney is a genius for a week.

    Montreal's done this before. Fired Klopas, hired Biello just before playing us in 2015. Montreal would go on to beat us 3 nil at home in the first round of the playoffs.

    Correction they actually waited until after they lost to us to fire Klopas. We won 2-1. Same time of the year though (Late August)

    I donít think it ever usually works to fire someone this late in. Didnít for us when Nelsen was fired for Vanney.

    But the argument would be, did that help Vanney get further ahead in 2017, when we actually did quite well.

    March not gonna happen with the Ex in full swing. It's a mess down there.

    Usual pre-game set ups in effect I suppose although lots of folks do their annual Ex wander during these matches since you get in for free. I am one of those people.

    Saputo removed lol he owns the team unless another buyer makes him an offer he canít refuse. Saputo one of the richest Canadian companies donít think is selling the Impact anytime soon.

    The Garde for Cabrera move makes a lot of sense for the Impact but the timing is bad as usual for Joey.

    The Impact want to be run cheap. They will never be a 'top' team in regards to ambition and persuing players because Joey is a notorious cheapskate (in the business world too) and also very nuts (ditto). I think the move makes sense because Cabrera does have a reputation of upcoaching young players and I can see the Impact comfortably settling in as a permanent second tier MLS team. If Cabrera can replicate what he did in Dallas, then Montreal should remain a mid table team while saving a few bucks by shedding the older players and established DPs. Plus Joey probably sees that Dallas has and will be making some good $$$ off selling academy players and wants in on the action. Money is always very important to Crazy Joey.

    I don't like looking at the bright side of things when it involves the Impact but if Cabrera does what he has done in the past then it could work out good for the young Canadians on the squad and may bring some future CMNT players into the national team mix. But for now, I can take some joy in the fact that he probably bollocksed their season with this move.

    Joey Saputo is well known for his long term support of Quebec soccer, that's his one plus.

    He has been incredibly cheap (he tried to get his stadium costs deducted from his franchise fee, which was only around $25 or $30m to start with). Stade Saputo compares unfavourably with most MLS stadiums. His team has always been a lower spending team.

    He's done okay for himself while spending peanuts. His investment has gone up many times.

    i worry for Saturday. We will have to start the game with an incredible focus. and the Shaff. Or one of the wingers. They will likely come out with tons of energy - we will need to both weather that and exploit the gaps they will leave. Im in favour of a 3-5-1-1 Gonzalez Moor Mavinga Laryea Oso Bradley Deleon Shaff Poz Jozy

    I wouldn't be shocked if Vanney pulls a surprise move and starts one or both TAM wingers or changes formation, or both. He's done things like that before in key games.

    Yes, that makes sense. Possession and experience (choose from Oso, Bradley, Marky, Deleon) combined with movement and pace (choose from Auro, Laryea, new guys, Shaff and Endoh).

    Fits 3-5-1-1 or 4-2-3-1 or even 4-1-3-2 Less so 4-4-2

    I'm sorry, but what does it say that having the coach play our new TAM signings would be a surprise move. I wonder how many teams bring in high priced talent and then don't play them :-o

    Nice... But No actually,

    I think he parks the bus and deploys two goalies (trying to confuse the ref and league). Worried that Montreal might pose a such drastic offensive threat with the coaching change that we shouldn't risk trying to score unless on a counter. So none but defenders and holding midfielders

    Westberg - Bono
    Auro-Gonzalez-Moor-Mavinga-Morrow
    Delgado - Bradley - Zavaleta

    Morgan


    Only DP will be Bradley, TAMs and other DPs will sit. Of course the fans won't mind it because we will play for the draw, play offs guaranteed with 9 games left.

    Funny enough, in past years that's when we would do the March as it would have best effects during the CNE.

    Some of my favourite marches have happened at this fixture during the CNE. Hoping there’s plans of one for Saturday. Best way to kick off the derby.

    I find that security everywhere is up a notch these days. I expect it to be a pain getting in.

    I'm sure inebriatti will have one. They usually do and they go big for big games. Just go to liberty village market cafe area early.
