Wonder why the top right jersey is turned around

I have a Zidane France jersey from WC2006. Also have a Michael Owen Real Madrid one from way back. Where do you get your jerseys? I'm looking for a RM or possibly Spurs one.

Will probably ads an Isco one next year, I don't like this year's away and third kits.
I wanted to get a France one as well this summer, but was undecided on the name + they didn't have my size. Told myself I'd just get myself one for Euro2016 when I'll probably go visit in France

@P D : You guessed right why the third one is turned to the logo side I get most of mine from the official team shop. [Online, or in person near the stadium]. I know a few online shops that sell relatively "cheap" though if you want

Lol. I only now realized why we haven't seen any for a while. You can't have "Behind every Win" when you don't win.
A 24ch type show with the impact would be awesome.

I get my jerseys online via the official team-shops mostly. I got the Arsenal one via World Soccer Shop because it was too expensive on Arsenal's web site and I got my Ozil RMCF and my personalized RMCF (shorts + jersey) ones on a Chinese website - great quality for knock offs. All my Impact jerseys have been bought at the official shop at Saputo Stadium.

I thought Miami would get a team before Orlando. I guess they're going to join in 2016.

Did they mention who the owner is? Hope he's got deep pockets and would help grow the league.

What price range are the knockoffs? If they are great quality it's much more worth it than spending $100 on a real one.

Asked that to a Arsenal fan I follow on Twitter that lives in Orlando City. These were his replies throughout a conversation I had with him

Quote:
Ahmėd K ‏@AhmedKayad 24s
@Laurmayne We have a ownership group. But the main owners of the club are Phil Rawlins (@OCPres) and Flavio (@GeracaodeValor) from Brazil.

Ahmėd K ‏@AhmedKayad 26s
@Laurmayne Our brazilian owner has a huge company in Brazil called @wiseupbr it's a english institution. He's company is a WC sponsor also!

Ahmėd K ‏@AhmedKayad 1m
@Laurmayne We're not to sure how much money the ownership is willing to pour into our players since it's still a bit early. But It's fair

Ahmėd K ‏@AhmedKayad 22s
@Laurmayne We'll be competing for the best DP's. Flavio has connections with many established Brazilian players one being Kaka.
Second part means that he probably has some loaded pockets. Don't get carried away. Stan Kroenke is the Colorado Rapids owner, and they've got jack **** in big name DP's. (Kroenke is also Arsenal's owner. So you can deduct that he is the MLS' richest owner, since hes 4th richest in England)

Unless I'm missing something, he's not the richest in MLS. Phil Anschutz, Red Bull/Dietrich Mateschitz, Paul Allen (Sounders) come to mind.

Kroenke? Or these new Orlando owners? For Kroenke I was just taking an educated guess. Since hes the 4th richest behind the likes of the Seikh & Abrahmovich in England, I basically deducted that he probably was the richest in the MLS as well. Wheather it is true or not, I have no clue. I don't know much about MLS' ownerships.

Depends on the sites. Goes from 20$ to 50$. The pricier sites usually include shipping in the price, not the cheapest ones. So, in the end, you get your jersey for about 40$ on average. The only problem I had with my personalized RMCF away kit is the "La Liga"-patch size. I guess, just like hockey jerseys, quality varies depending on the sites.

The ones I used to order my jerseys are now closed (these sites open and close all the time), but you can find one pretty easily. They usually don't have a great selection and there is always the chance that the customs block your package. It never happened to me, but it does happen.

I was fortunate with my purchases, but I prefer to pay 60$ more and get the real thing. I would do the same for hockey jerseys if the prices weren't completely ridiculous. I prefer getting a knock off that only people that REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY pay attention will notice is fake than to pay 400$ for a Canadian-made authentic - knock offs look better and are more resistent to the time than the "Premier" replica crap they sell for 150$+. For soccer jerseys, now that I can afford the real thing, I buy it. If there were such things as Impact knock offs, I would never buy because I am a season ticket holder. Ripping off RMCF won't hinder their ability to get players like Bale for 100M euros haha.

Kroenke. I'm just saying. But like you said, a lot of MLS owners have these clubs in hope it brings money but they're reluctant to invest. Bob Kraft and the Revs come to mind. Then you have owners like Saputo, Paulson, the Sounders quartet, that treat their clubs like their babies.

Yeah. I personally agree that the owners like Saputo, Paulson are the best. I hate superficial owners that just use the team as a potential source of revenue [Like the Krafts, as you said]. You just get that feeling with the fans that some owners are closer to the teams than others. It shows in the stands, and on the pitch. An example of this is RSL. I don't know who their owner is, but by the type of fanbase they have and on field product, I can almost guarantee it isn't someone like Kroenke, Kraft, etc..

I go to ebay for most of my stuff. I got a Expo's and Habs hats for $20 each, and a nicely made, climacool material blank Germany Jersey(the one with 3 thin diagonal lines) for $30. Shipping included for all.

I also got a Black impact Polo off the official MLS store during a half price clearance sale.

I live in TO now, so i'm going locally.

I was planning to get tickets with the Ultras. In addition to being awesome, it's $25 as opposed to $51 via TM

But i ended up inviting 3 local teenage cousins who never went to a soccer game before. It would be irresponsible to go with the Ultras with them, so I got Stubhub tickets to section 220, 1/4 way along the upper deck $40 each fees included.

My view is pretty much identical to the cameras, so it should be pretty sweet.


One good thing about living here now is the Voyageurs. I wanted to watch the Canada U17 team play in Dubai. So I went down to a local pub at 9am and watched the game with a half dozen guys, including most of the staff of Canadiansoccernews.com

It was really great, though I tried not to bring up Impact/TFC much, It didn't serve any purpose.

Au contraire, you should constantly remind them how much TFC sucks.

Meh, as a proud supporter of Canadian soccer (for the little that's worth) I support the Voyageurs. The last thing I want to do as a newcomer and outsider is kick them when they are down.

As time passes and get to know them, i'll S*it talk more.

Jason deVos has a nice bio on Nesta:

http://www.tsn.ca/soccer/story/?id=434818

Just a feeling, but for this weekend I really have a feeling that all the teams fighting are going to lose.

I can seriously see us ending in 3rd or 4th where everyone except maybe one team drops their game.

The is the tightest weekend in league history, either way should be fun.

Maybe it's because I haven't been watching soccer as long, but I find the soccer knockoffs are much closer to the real thing than hockey knockoffs. I've seen some pretty terrible hockey knockoff jerseys. I have two Liverpool knockoffs from jerseybbc and they're great... with one exception being the Premier League patch seems to fade when you wash the shirt. You can get away with not washing it much though, and it may be my fault for not washing inside out (don't know if that makes a difference, I will try if I buy a new one). I got them for about 25 bucks if I recall correctly, part of a group purchase to get a shipping discount. That site takes forever to produce new stuff sometimes though.... they still don't have any of Liverpool's 13-14 kits (but they do have Everton's for some reason )

Don't have any Impact tops but I do have a hat that a friend bought for me, I can't remember where (somewhere in Halifax) for about 25 bucks. Had to make sure I had something with that beautiful shield crest on it.

Good, but I'm not sure I don't prefer Ouimette/Tissot's superior offensive game for a game like this. Maybe start Brovsky and take him out if we need a goal towards the end.

Nesta will be out. So I assume brovsky will play LB, Ouimette RB and Camara CB.

I dont like when Camara plays CB because our transition game sucks. Our best 2 defensemen to start building up an attack are nesta and Lefevre. Camara and Ferrari are below average in that department.

You are probably right, but just like you, I'd prefer to see Camara as a RB.

I'd start the game with Brovsky, Ferrari, Levčfre and Camara and bring in either Ouimette or Tissot if we need a goal late. Levčfre has been the best out of the Academy players and I feel safer with him defending than with either Ouimette or Tissot.
