Why MLS Should Thank Marsch for Drafting Brian Ching


The selection by Montréal Impact of Houston’s Brian Ching has raised controversy across the league. Prior to the draft, Ching had publicly stated he didn’t want to play in Montréal and would retire if drafted. With that floating around the MLS airwaves, Dominic Kinnear elected to protect eleven other players.

If you protect eleven others, and then have one player issuing ultimatums and threats about retiring if drafted, what you are in fact trying to do is protect twelve players.

They protected eleven and put Ching in the position of stamping his feet like a sulky child, hoping Marsch would take the easy route. Marsch called their bluff. The entire league owes him a thank you.

Had Kinnear got away with it, it would have started a trend. That trend would have consisted of players’ agents releasing petulant and contemptuous statements about expansion clubs in the weeks leading up to the draft.

That would have undermined the Expansion Draft system entirely.

Veterans look to make an Impact in camp
Pizzolitto and Sebrango relish chance to show what they got



When looking back on the past successes of Montreal’s professional soccer team, there are a few long-serving Impact players that stand out.

All-time leading scorer and winner of three playoff championships Mauro Biello, currently the club’s assistant coach, would be one…so would sporting director Nick De Santis, who won playoff championships as a player, a coach and a manager.

There are also two names on that list who just received invitations to the club’s first ever MLS training camp in January; Eduardo Sebrango and Nevio Pizzolitto.

Quebec native Patrice Bernier returns to Montreal
Current Canadian National Team member previously played nine seasons in Europe



MONTREAL – The Montreal Impact announced on Monday the signing of Quebec native midfielder Patrice Bernier. As per club and Major League Soccer (MLS) policy, details of the contract were not disclosed.

A native of Brossard and current resident of Montreal’s south shore, Bernier, 32, will make his return with the Impact, formerly wearing the team’s colours from 2000-2002. A current Canadian National Team member, he previously played nine seasons in Europe, with Moss F.K and Tromso IL in Norway, FC Kaiserslautern in Germany, as well as FC Nordsjaelland and Lyngby BK in Denmark.


“We have been in talks with Patrice for quite some time and we are extremely pleased that he will be joining the Impact for the 2012 season,” said Impact head coach Jesse Marsch. “His years of experience in top leagues in Europe will provide the team with savvy and intelligence. As a player, he is very sharp on the ball and his tactical awareness will be a great value in the midfield. As a person, he is a good man and a strong leader. Patrice is very excited and ready for the challenge of helping our club reach the next level.”

International soccer star is coming home
Patrice Bernier accepts challenge of building Impact in MLS



Home is where the heart is…and for Patrice Bernier, his heart is coming home.

After playing nearly a decade across the pond in Norway, Germany and Denmark, the Brossard native will don the blue and white jersey of the Montreal Impact for a second time in his career.

“I’m a point in my career where I feel good and strong,” said the 32-year-old midfielder. “With the Impact playing in the highest league in North America, I felt the time was right to come home and help build the MLS edition of the Impact.”

Montreal midfielder Warner training with Championship club
Youngster spending 10 days with Brighton & Hove Albion FC



NEW YORK – Add Collen Warner’s name to the list of MLS players keeping sharp across the Atlantic this offseason.

The Montreal Impact midfielder, who the club picked up in the Expansion Draft from Real Salt Lake, embarked Wednesday on a 10-day training stint with Championship club Brighton & Hove Albion FC.

However, Impact supporters have nothing to worry about for the time being. Warner’s agent, Kevin Legg, said via phone that his client was not on trial and was simply in Brighton to prepare for the upcoming MLS season, while also getting a taste of the English game.

re: Montreal Impact FC (Impact de Montréal FC)

Who will fill Montreal's Canadian quota?



Heading towards training camp, in preparation for their first season in North America's top flight, the Montreal Impact have already signed 2 Canadian players in Patrice Bernier and Greg Sutton. Under current MLS rules, it is still one less than the league minimum. The Impact have announced that they have given trials to 5 players who are considered by MLS as Canadians, all of whom played last year for the organization. They are: Reda Agourram, Simon Gatti, Mircea Ilcu, Nevio Pizzolitto and Eduardo Sebrango. One would have to guess that at least one of those players will be offered and sign a contract with the club, if not more.

Jesse Marsch and the Montreal Impact front office will have difficult decisions on offering MLS contracts with respect to the Canadian quota. Unless the Impact actively seek out another player, it would be expected that the team will pick from the 5 players named above and these trialists will need to be ready for training camp. From these players there are two clear paths the organization can take: they could choose to fill the roster with youth in Ilcu and Agourram, or they could also pick from their veterans if they feel they are playing at a high enough level and also if they do a good job challenging the 21 players who already have a contract
