Coshcast: Gold Cup, Transfers & Neymar

This week on the Coshcast we look back at Canada’s run in the Gold Cup as they pass the Hondurance test but ultimately suffer from Larin’s itis, round up any latest transfer madness by which I mean primarily make fun of West Ham, and course where would we be without Mumu of the Week? We’d be up a tree without a Mumu, of course.

Coshcast: Messi’s kiss of death

Happy Canada day, happy American independence day, happy Lacazette day, and whatever you’re celebrating, like some kind of illicit substance the Coshcast is here to make it that much better.

This week we’ll check in on TFC after they become just another victim from the north east to get blown apart in Dallas, check out the market where there are more transfers in and out than the Cayman islands, touch on the Confederations Cup final where Germany remain cool against Chile, and end with an update on the Canadian Premier League.

Canadian Soccer in the US System

With the news of the Canadian Premier League sparking Canadian interest in soccer from Victoria to St. John’s, it is worth taking a look at the Canadian clubs under US governing bodies and their histories, be it top division sides like Toronto FC and Vancouver Whitecaps or lesser known PDL sides such as Forest City London or Calgary Foothills FC.

Manchester United: Is Nemanja Matic the answer?

For a while, United seemed to be focusing on replacing the injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic with one (or maybe two) of Alvaro Morata, Andrea Belotti or Romelu Lukaku. So far, United haven’t been able to push a striker through the door. As a result, Mourinho is now focusing on central midfield. If reports are to be believed Jose will be reunited with his former Chelsea charge Nemanja Matic. Let’s dive right in and analyze this potential transfer.

Mohamed Salah: Fitting in at Liverpool

Mohamed Salah’s move from Roma to Liverpool appears all but done. The 25 year old who reached double figures in goals and assists in Serie A last term will join the Merseysiders for a lot of money (the exact amount remains unclear), and he’s an exciting addition to the team, and the league. The question is, of course, where does he fit in?

Manchester United: The Macheda Moment

It was a frantic finish to the 08/09 season and I was approaching the end of my first year of university. Back home for the weekend, with finals around the corner, the United game was on. It was (and still is) a standard ritual to watch the United game while planning the rest of the day around it, and so everything else was naturally cast aside.

AC Milan: Is the sleeping giant waking up?

AC Milan have quietly spent a lot of money in this transfer window. The new owners have lived up to their promise to invest in the squad. A resurgent AC Milan is good for their fans but ultimately good for Italian football. How good are these signings really? Are Milan actually primed for a return to the big time? We ask the important questions and I’m sure you’ll find some surprising answers here. Enjoy and have your say in the comments section and on social media.

Coshcast: Real Retain Champions League

Today on this truncated Coshcast we pore over the remains of the Champions League final, deplore Sergio Ramos, Ronaldo shouts ‘vamos’ and Buffon deals with another loss. We also bring you old England in a Tony Adams-laden Mumu of the Week and New England as we look back at Toronto FC’s away defeat.

MUFC 2016/17 Season Review: Don’t dare call it a Treble…

While I admire the Mourinho mentality that says, “if we’re in a competition, we’ll try to win it”, I don’t think any United fan will look back on 2016/17 as another treble season. With all apologies to Liverpool and what some dubbed the ‘Mickey Mouse treble’, this campaign is just barely a double. I mean, the Community Shield isn’t a major trophy, is it?
