    Seen this, thought it was interesting, not saying I agree with it, but it's the 10 worst PL managers of all time, the relevance to MLS is it has 4 managers on it who are either still in MLS or have been in past.

    Interesting new manager for NYCFC. Not without success in the past.

    If you take the Celtic success out, and it should come with an asterix due to having zero competition at the time, then his Norwegian career is spotty. Not sure about this one, could go either way. This hire seems more like City Group just getting whoever they could find because they couldn't be arsed to go out and do the proper manager hunt.

    So apparently we will play the Bradley bowl this year after all

    So the draft has cameras in half of the team's war rooms- included Toronto, for some reason.

    Pretty funny, given that Toronto's picks are fairly far down and likely to be TFCII material at best. Maybe it's for Canadian content for Canadian viewers?

    I always found those guys reluctantly cover MLS and North American Soccer. As soon as they have an opening to talk about other (world class) levels of the game they take it.

    Which is a shame (and somewhat silly) cause they probably wouldn’t even crack the top 100 EPL commentators worldwide but if they focused on MLS / North America they’d instantly be top 10 given their market reach.

    Maybe it’s an angle for TSN’s future La Liga rights now that DAZN has taken EPL elsewhere and they realize there’s a gap to fill. Getting several hundred thousand people to watch soccer on Saturday Morning, when there’s morning else on, is a pretty good deal.

    That's exactly it I bet tsn gets la Liga rights soon so KJ and Caldwell are covering la Liga hoping to become the analysts.

    It's available now under a different name - check spotify The KJ & Caldwell podcast - or check KJ's twitter feed for a link

    Funny, but I don't get the reluctance thing people are saying - they seem about 50% MLS/CanMNT these days.

    I’ll admit I haven’t listened in quite a while, for the reason I mentioned plus KJ’s overuse of the word “massive”

    They may well be paying more attention to the domestic game these days.

    That would make sense.

    Jayden Nelson looks good tonight for Canada, he's probably better than shaffleburg right now.

    I don’t know if this is off topic but looks like no Onyx away kit this year.

    I was wondering the same, or if the papers at least had hired stringers. It's just pathetic now, the Canadian media. Good lord.

    The mainstream media has been downsizing for years, and sports not called "hockey" have had cutbacks in Canada. Larson, Molinaro, and KJ are all examples of that. Who's paid to cover soccer these days?

    I'm trying to think of an MLS team not training at their home base which has a journo with them - I think Goff is covering DCU in Florida but that's all I can find.

    AFAIK both Larson and Molinaro are at the CPL now.

    Steve Buffery at the Sun seems to be the only guy consistently covering TFC these days

    ^ I hope not. Banana Yellow *is* the Crew. An no matter what new name they come up with, the team will always be known as "The Crew".

    Yeah, I don't mind their look now with the new crest. I don't think they should make any more changes.

    The new away jersey leaked, supposedly.



    This is about as bland as possible.
