The 2020 season is over already, but did you expect Wanderers to be in the final? It’s alright, neither did I.
As much as Forge have experience in the final, it’s on them to adapt to Wanderers’ pressure that can and has disrupted their build-up play.
When you have a tournament, this is the kind of game it’s about. Both Forge and Cavalry need a result, plus it’s Forge and Cavalry–by far CanPL’s best rivalry so far.
Wanderers have looked good enough in this tournament that it’s easy to forget how much of a surprise it is for them to be in the second round.
Forge haven’t looked quite right, but they still have four points, and Wanderers are in for a test. Follow along from 8:30PM.
Forge are still favourites even in a tournament setting, largely down to the coaching of Bobby Smyrniotis.
Here we all are at the end of the road. This afternoon (or tonight, on CBC), somebody gets the keys to the castle.
The league began in a Tim Hortons, and so it will end in one.
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.
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.
