Pa-Modou Kah reshaped Pacific in just two years, in the middle of a pandemic. He’s a very good coach, but I think James Merriman is, too.
The liveblog returns in time for Wanderers to “host” Pacific in Winnipeg.
Our first Wanderers liveblog of the year kicks off against Pacific. It’s a rivalry on the field and often in the stands, and a good test for Wanderers in Match #1.
