“I’m going to miss my group of players (…) but it’s like 2003 when I retired as an NHL player: we’re moving on.” – Patrick Roy
Roy will never say it publicly, but to hear him talk, he wants to return to the NHL to coach. He says he’s always open to proposals, and that at this time of year, everyone thinks they’ve found their man.
I haven’t always been convinced of his coaching style, but he’s proved he can win, even in 2023. He’s received a lot of praise, and like many others, he deserves a second chance.
Of course, Ottawa remained a team that could have called on Roy’s services, but they decided to entrust the reins once again to D.J. Smith. The latter will undoubtedly be on a tightrope, and if the successes aren’t there, we shouldn’t be surprised to see a change.
The former Remparts coach avoided the trap of journalists’ questions by talking about Ottawa as a beautiful city, and that the people there are doing a good job.
– Messi has changed the organization.
Miami dominating Philadelphia, is that really a good thing for MLS?
Philadelphia is a dominant club at home and here it’s 3-0 at halftime.
