View Full Version : Montreal's scheduling nightmare

USL games on the 24th, 27th and 30th of August as well as the 3rd and 5th of September. Hopefully the USL sees the importance of one of their clubs taking part in the Champions League and helps them move fixtures around. The Puerto Rico game on September 16th could also be a problem.

The USL must be loving the fact that its name will be up there along with MLS. You can count on them making adjustments for it.
It is story #1 on their site currently
Montreal wins Canadian Championship
Impact tie Toronto 1-1 to qualify for Champions League
The August 24th/27th and September 3rd/5th are at Montreal so those can be rescheduled at Mr Saputo's place easy. August 30th is at Carolina so I don't know how their agreement works.
I'm sure they will want to work something out.

One thing is sure, Rocco Placentino, who played a full season in Italy before joining Montreal will be tired . Limniatis will eventually have to give him a rest.

Placentino was hurt for a large portion of the season though. So that might mitigate how tired he gets.

MTL has to to do what's necessary to get to the playoffs but shouldn't play their staters and should be cautious with the players they use in the games before and during the CCL. That's why it's good they have the Attak as a reserve team.
