Vive les Quebecois
It's been a while since I posted any USL news so I thought I'd bring up this piece from a few days ago. The USL's Montreal Impact have thrown down the gauntlet in regards to MLS expansion franchise Toronto FC.
"Toronto FC hasn't proven anything yet," Impact president Joey Saputo said Thursday. "We're still the best team in Canada and our goal is to continue to be the best team in Canada and, if we have the opportunity to play Toronto FC, our goal would be to prove it."
The CBC story is here. These guys certainly don't have a little brother complex. And why should they; they have higher attendance than several MLS clubs, in some cases pay better than MLS, are about to begin construction on their own SSS, and have a supporters group (UMO2) that rivals anything going stateside. And I won't even mention their high-alcohol beer, and strip clubs that defy justification.
Shit, can we get them in as the 14th team?
