  1. Very happy to see this going through and I'm not going to fuss and flip over 2 cents like I've seen from other people. I cannot speak to Delta and Richmond, but IIRC, Corrigan's objections to this are the process in which this is being done and not the practical nature of the Evergreen Line.
  2. Yeah that thread was pretty popular and got a lot of posts...especially when Ukranian Canuck was around.
  3. Another big player and this one a center, going to a solid NCAA program next season.
  4. Buses would not be taken away entirely, less will just be used. The 145 is ridiulous though. I learned eventually to just go to Sperling Station and get the 144. not as hectic and way more room.
  5. These are all things I'm sure they will address, because from what I've been told, it's 99.9% going to happen. They've done lots of research in regards to the type of tram and routes and the data shows a conclusion that is both economically sound and environmentally friendly.
  6. Expect an aerial tram to SFU to get the go-ahead
  7. A must win game tonight. They have to take all 3 points from a not-so-good San Jose.
  8. I never read the book (might have to eventually) and I think the show has been splendid so far. The first three episodes have been a little "slow", but I don't blame them since there is a lot of characters and stories they need to touch on and show the viewer.
  9. http://fulltimethesoccershow.blogspot.com/2011/04/whitecaps-training-notes-april-7.html Sucks that Salinas had a setback, I was looking forward to see him play. One forgotten player for me is Michael Nanchoff, our other 1st Round Pick. He's part of the unvailable CM list due to injury. It'd be nice to see his offensive ability added to the line-up.
  10. I think Nolly will keep getting the starts. Nolly did a good job of controlling his box last game and effectively using his height, but I think he is average when it comes to ball stopping ability. Cannon is still dealing with some niggling injury issues as well, but I would not be surprised if Cannon is the starter at some point this year.
  11. Both Salgado and Teibert will be in Houston with the team. If Teibert is fit he will start on the left side again. With the Hassli suspension, we could see Salgado come on as a sub since I assume Camilo and Harris will start again. Some updates on other players Jay Demerit - Looks like he will play against Houston John Thorrington - Is now hurt apparently, (re-aggravated an injury?) he did a fine job replacing Dunfield last game. Terry Dunfield - Not expected to play Sunday Gershon Koffie - Will now miss the next 3 games because he has been called up to the U20 Ghana squad. Was going to miss one originally for suspension. Alexandre Morfaw - One of our depth CM's who is out with a broken hand now. Alain Rochat - Could be starting at CM because of the amount of players we're now missing. I expect he will do just fine there as he has been excellent at both LB and CB so far. Chiumiento - May start Sunday, possibly even at CM A little murky who would we could be seeing on Sunday. Leathers, Camilo, Harris, Boxall and Demerit (looks like he will return) all seem to be locks for their position. Rochat will play but not quite sure where, either LB or CM. Best case scenario (all possible players get fit) LB - Rochat CB - Demerit CB - Boxall RB - Leathers LM - Teibert HM - Harmse CM - Chiumiento RM - Knight or Khaflan FW - Harris FW - Camilo Likely subs who would see the pitch - Salgado, Salinas and Wagner. (maybe Davies if they need a CM) Another possibility is Wagner at LB and Rochat at CM.
  12. Yes it's early, but a forward group consisting of Hassli, Harris, Salgado and Camilo should be able to keep the Whitecaps consistently potting goals. Early predictions have Hassli/Camilo starting Wednesday against New England, but I'm not sure if I agree. Harris's athleticism and ball-winning capabilities are very important to our offense. I do think the Whitecaps could use another central attacking midfield though, or another right midfielder so that you can push Chiumiento inside. I like Dunfield and he delivered a nice ball to Chiumiento on the 2nd goal, but I want to see little more offensive flair from that spot. The team struggled against KC in consistently moving the ball before Chiumiento/Khaflan were subbed on and I think Wagner really struggled at LM. Also, it looks to me like Khalfan is more suited to the subs role and it also allows his pace to become more of an advantage. He's too inconsistent off the ball at this point to be a starter.
  13. Demerit and Chiumiento are "doubtful" according to Marc Weber and "questionable" according to the Whitecaps officials that John Molinaro spoke to.
  14. Akloul will form an excellent tandem with Demerit. Demerit is more of a hard-nosed d-man, whereas Akloul is a little more dynamic and can really push the ball forward even from the CB position. Really excited to see him in the line-up soon. It'll be nice when the CB's are healthy and you have a guy with the quality of Janicki as your back-up.
  15. Where do you live? A lot of people park on various side streets along hastings then walk/bus the rest of the way, while others skytrain to Renfrew then bus up. I'm in Burnaby right next to Brentwood Mall, so getting there is really easy for me.
