    Okay my MLS season is almost over so I'm turning to the Premier League to help me make it through the cold winter. I've only become a football fan this summer and my MLS experience has been amazing. I've purchased season tickets to the Montreal Impact for the 2017 season. (no waiting list sorry:)

    My nephew is a Man City fan so I'm leaning towards joining him. Any advice?

    Sunderland are a class team. Top of the league if you look at it while standing on your head.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Edit: Just seen you have Liverpool in your profile now. Just what we need, another scouser to keep their match day threads going 3 weeks after the game has finished :laugh:

    Fixed it with question marks?

    Black Sabbath? They were formed in Aston, Birmingham.

    So, Villa it is then. Great choice :D

    Being serious though i don't think it's too bad if they're from another country. It's worse when they live in Tunbridge Wells and support Man U.

    Welcome to/Bienvenue a FootballForums Canadianbacon. You are from Montreal, so you get a greeting in both English and French ;)

    Dont think we have many Canadian fans on atm. Btw is it next season that you are going to be a season ticket holder at Montreal Impact or did you have one beforehand?

    You're so right! Not sure why I thought they were from Liverpool.

    Thanks for the welcome :) I purchased the season tickets for next season but they gave me access to them for this year's playoffs also. Just got back from the game. Montreal beat the New York Red Bulls 1-0. What a beautiful game. I'm looking forward to the Premier League.

    Canada's greatest non-wrestling export Paul Stalteri played for Spurs. There's your team sorted.

    Greetings from Germany!

    Good to see that you are now a fan of the greatest game on earth, too. ;)
    I know that Football (a.k.a soccer for you) isn't the #1 sports in your country but hockey (I like it, too. Fan of the Detroit Red Wings btw).


    MLS Season is almost over? Wow, haven't seen a single match so far but you know German Bundesliga, English Premier League and Championship, Europa League and Champions League....there's not much "space on my dance-card" anymore.

    Montreal Impact? Interesting name, I like it. Montreal sports teams always have (had) interesting names like Canadians (Hockey) or Montreal Machine (some 25 years ago in the defunct WLAF). The only "uninteresting" one for me was Montreal Expos back in their MLB years.

    btw: Interesting to see that Canadians clubs compete in the MLB, NBA, NHL (of course) and now in MLS but not in NFL with their "neighbours from the south" Why is that?

    I'm really lucky that our National sports network has adopted the English Premier League and they carry most of the games live which is awesome. Great question about the NFL. I guess it might be because there is a Canadian Football League (CFL) that fills the stadiums here. Having NFL teams would destroy that league. Cheers!

    I live in Edmonton now and some of my wife's family live in Montreal; we've never visited, which is a travesty. :(

    Come support Forest in the Championship mate, we need all the help we can get. :laugh:

    Nice to see more Canadians here.

    There are more clubs out there than ones in the top four. Hey, there are even more leagues!

    Promotion is a hell of a feeling. :clap:
