    They were super effective. I'm all for it. Their play didn't appear ike 35+ year olds. Only part that made them look like 35+ year olds was their experience showed.

    Age can catch up really fast at that point. Besides, what other teams in MLS are even close to spending that much on D?

    Both are still with the team though, unless I missed something? And you sure this Novillo nobody will be an upgrade to anything? I'd take Vargas in my team over that guy anyday, and my team wouldnt be coached by a Wenger clone.

    The only reason we signed this Novillo guy is becaus he's French and was at Lyon. It's gonna be a long ****ty season again.

    Though, if those Canadian players are intelligent, they wont play for IMFC, look the track record of Canadian players with IMFC. Even Bernier had a hard time getting minutes.

    Let's see what the price tags are before judging.

    We couldn't find a Novillo that was American/Canadian? He played in Malaysia where he was dropped for not being good enough, Turkish 3rd division and a journeyman he should've been signed in CPL.

    This team makes my scalp itchy. So yea I guess we'll trade for International spots.


    Another Vargas too

    My wife answers: "He's French?" lol

    Just checked his IG and stories. Complete *****ebag.

    As long as he can break ankles at 70'+, we'll be fine.

    I’ll reserve judgement until I see him on the field but seems like a waste of intl spot.

    No one has expectations from him which could be a good thing for him. I think that people are just disappointed that this guy is our first signature for the upcoming year and an Int in a position that's already covered. I also believe had he joined the team in February or March (when the roster is supposed to be near completed) no one would care. I know I wouldn't.

    Seeing a local young guy like D.Choiniere or Edwards there would've been better. If he blows up like BWP did, then Garde is a genius, otherwise it's a waste. Now let's guess Novillo's salary, 500k? 600k?

    If the Alessandrini rumors are true (I think they are, since they can't get rid of the Dos Santos bros) Who's leaving ? I hope they won't trade Silva ...:mad: Alessadrini is the most selfish player in MLS.

    this team will become Impact Nouvelle-France :help:

    What does that mean? That he'll find YouTube highlights of Argentinian players for NDS?

    What are his qualifications? Being a D2 player 15 years ago? I mean, I like the guy, I really do, but we look like amateur hour again by hiring one of our OWN boys to run the club.

    EDIT:

    Ok, fair enough, but still, what are his damn qualifications?

    I believe he has been involved in a few school programs for Soccer in the Montréal region. He has also recently coached (as an assistant I believe) a youth men national team.

    I struggle to understand what are his qualifications on the business side personally, but I can jump on board for the Soccer/academy qualifications. Apparently it's quite hard to get to coach for the Canadian youth teams.

    ...



    FYI, it's 7 Pro scouts and 12 amateur scouts. NDS will oversee South American scouting for Bologna/Montréal.



    Also, really interesting thread

    I read the descritption of Ledu's new responsibilities, but I dont really get what he's supposed to actually be doing. Like he's supposed to "bridge the gap" between the academy, U19 and the pros... like how? Par la pensée magique?
    There's no bridging the gap as long as there's no reserve team, and Leduc is not a reserve team. Will he be mandated to put one together, say, in the PDL at least? I highly doubt it.

    Anyone know if the press conference is available somewhere?

    Good to hear the news about a scouting team, though.

    NDS' reaction to officially becoming the South Americas head scout for IMFC and Bologna:

    "I only need to watch youtube videos from Argentina now?"
