Amongst a string of games that don’t really matter comes one that does. All season, Wanderers’ main story has been the support off the field rather than the play on it, and tonight is a chance to indulge that in a way that doesn’t feel like a distraction.
One of the more interesting tools to help analyze games is the game state: how does a match pan out when the score is 2 – 1? 3 – 0? On the road? At home?
It’s the end of the year, which means it’s time to admit I put almost no effort into choosing photos for FC Edmonton games.
One of the nice things about the university season is it just comes thick and fast. Unlike the Canadian Premier League spring season, there aren’t a lot of midweek games. Instead, you get weekend back-to-backs. Pick your poison.
Whenever things have been tough for Wanderers this year, whenever they’ve been down and almost out, they’ve been able tp play Valour. And every time, it gets better.
As mentioned on Twitter, I’ll be along a bit later tonight because of refereeing commitments[mfn]I thought the Wanderers game was at 7, okay?[/mfn] so, you know, chat amongst yourselves. I leave you in the monkeys’ capable hands.
As soon as I hit post on the AUS season preview, I knew large parts of it would be wrong. Some of this was just my doing it rather quickly, and some of it is the nature of university soccer.
After immersing myself in AUS for the past two weeks, Wanderers soccer is back, with the first leg of what is essentially a cup tie against Forge.
The only team that really won this week in university soccer were the Holland College Hurricanes, whose name seemed less of a reach.
