Things are looking positive if not perfect. So let's take a deeper dive into what lies ahead. Your … Continue reading Forge Down the Stretch
First of all, let me put all you Forge fans at ease. Sparxy is ok. This was simply a metaphor, and the perennial thorn in the side that is Valour FC is the dragon in question that Bobby's Boys slew. As most Forge fans know, Valour is always a tough nut to crack for the … Continue reading Forge Slays Their Dragon: Beating Valour in Terrordome

Ah well, this week it’s rants. So today’s rant is all about U-21 minutes. And my editor is working … Continue reading The Value of U-21 Minutes May Be Overstated.
Ok, so let me start by saying, I love the CPL. And I love the amount of energy they are putting into trying to make the league exciting and fun for everyone. But… I am not of fan of their insistence on pushing a couple things that I feel are way less important than they’d … Continue reading Playoffs!!! Finally They Matter…
I really like Drew Beckie. He was a solid player, and he is an example of what this league is all about in my opinion.

This time around, even without suppressing conditions, it was as if something was chaining York down, even though they won 2-1 over Valour FC. There were, to put it briefly, a few miscommunications and lapses … Continue reading York Takes the Win From Winnipeg, but it was Certainly a “Weird One”
Well, a lot of Forge fans got a little ahead of themselves after the dismantling of York. (Sorry, total dismantling) Forget it, Jake. It’s Valour FC. (Ripped off from the classic Jack Nicholson flick, Chinatown) I’m not saying that Valour FC is practicing witchcraft, but they definitely have some mystical ability to raise their game … Continue reading Forge Vs Valour: An Expected Dip in Results, If Not Form
