In Memoriam: Valour 2019

I dreaded writing this one. Valour fans should probably dread reading it. Because boy, were there some lows this season for Valour. There weren’t many highs, either, but neither was the whole quite so bad as it sometimes seemed.

I actually like long road trips–they’re a part of sports if not always the traditional, European model of soccer–and they add some structure to the season. Unfortunately, Wanderers’ last was not very good. They’re now winless in the league for four games–six in all competitions–with a couple blowouts there at the end as the minds and legs went.

Another week, another liveblog. This time I’m working off a stream just like the rest of you, as Wanderers head back out on the road for what I’m calling the Military Derby: Valour have built their club around Winnipeg’s military history and Halifax’s logo is based on an old fort (and also a bridge that’s constantly under repair), so why not?
