I'm going. Though I have no idea what to do all day.

Probably either see the space shuttle or watch Pacific Rim.

He may need work defensively but it wouldn't hurt to try him, at least in the reserves games.
Like when Batman comes calling at the first sight of the Bat signal, I see that my knowledge of Blake's game has been called upon, so I'll share my thoughts...

Blake has always been more of an attack minded player with a nose for the goal and a knack for being in the right place at the right time, but still has the ability to get back and defend. As you've gotten to see in his time on the field, he has great speed and a wicked left foot...especially on set pieces and crosses. He has played a little bit of LB in his high school/academy days, and has even practiced some at the postion with IMFC. I'm sure he would be willing to play any position on the field if it helped the team and allowed him to see more playing time. I think if you asked him, he's much more confident playing in a midfield or striker role, but that's just due to the fact that he's spent 95% of his career playing in that role. I'm obviously biased and would love to see him on the field more, but we all understand that rookies have to put in their time and earn every second of game time they are given. Thank you all for your continued support of Blake. He seems to be loving Montreal and the fans he meets.

Di Vaio made it to the All-Star team!

Quote:
Montreal Impact forward Marco Di Vaio is the winner of the AT&T MLS All-Star ‘In the Game’ Challenge. Fans around the world scored 74,000 goals with Di Vaio through EA SPORTSTM FIFA Soccer 13 from July 3 to 10 to secure him a spot on the All-Star Fan XI.

I've never followed a MLS ASG, but it can't be worse than hockey and football

For CBA reasons ~34 players are nominated to the all star team.

the 10 chosen by ballot, one by FIFA 2013, a 1-2 more each by Garber and the coach(often locals of where the game is being held).

The rest are there in name only, because some players get contract bonuses for all star participation.

The coach picks his 18 and starting 11 on his own. The 10 initially chosen don't mean anything.

They play a friendly vs Roma, 6 subs (I think). Take a lot of pictures, do a bunch of interviews, autographs, etc.

Par for the all star course.

Are you guys aware of the MLS Community MVP? Montréal are represented by the Jebi Knights and if they win (the price is 10k donation to invest in the community) they'll give money to :

Peace Pandemic
Fondation du Docteur Julien
Croix-Rouge -Explosion Lac Mégantic
ARLPHL pour son programme de PowerChair soccer

All you need to do if you wanna support them is to vote online. Notice that you can vote as many time as you want and you just need to copy the italic word in the Captcha it'll work.

We're actually second but its a pretty close fight with Vancouver, we were first for a part of the day yesterday.

I'm guessing MdV/Schalli contract extension. Official Nesta retirement & Hopefully the announcement of a true training facility with the sponsorship of Videotron.

Also looks like Joey Saputo will get his time on NBC

Nesta followed Alberto Gilardino ‏right after MdV. My sources tell me that the Impact are looking to sign Gilardino

Ignazio Abate also seems pretty happy to see Nesta on Twitter

What do you guys think of Mario Yepes ? Should we sign him for the rest of season. He will be a decent backup to Ferrari & Nesta because in a month our schedule will be VERY crucial and NO way they can play every game (MLS+ CCL). After all, it seems like Nelson Rivas is messing with our heads. How many International Spots left? If 1 or less, We should clear up asap.

EDIT : Plus he speaks French
