Impact hunts for players in South America
Team focusing mainly on offensive talent



Impact sporting director Nick De Santis and head coach Jesse Marsch haven't been sitting with their feet up waiting for Major League Soccer to come to them.

The two recently completed an 11day scouting trip to South America for players who might be wearing Impact uniforms when the team joins MLS next year.

"We saw a lot of games, probably watched 15 in 11 days," De Santis told The Gazette this week. "We saw a lot of first-team reserve games as well as some Copa Sudamericana games that were going on. Basically, every night we were at a game."

De Santis and Marsch spent a week in Argentina, two days in Chile and two more in Ecuador.

"We have to evaluate and analyze everything, including the costs involved with bringing players from South America here, and compare them to the European market," De Santis said. "We also have to look at which players would adapt here and get to know their profiles and characteristics.

"We were able to sit down with a couple of players to get to know their personalities and motivation to come here," he added. "Now we're trying to put things together to see which players make the most sense and could help the team in the process of building it and, of course, we have to look at their price value."

Montreal and the DP dilemma

Today's Liverpool side with the likes of Andy Carroll and Luis Suarez leading the attack is a perfect example of that kind of classic complementary forward partnership that used to be so common in a 4-4-2. Unfortunately for the Reds, it has yet to really produce anything meaningful.

Inzaghi and Toni fall into the category of the first forward, that of the penalty box finisher. They may have scored many goals in their careers, but much of their success is due to having played alongside technically graced players that were able to craft out chances for them - Zinedine Zidane, Kaka, Adrian Mutu and Franck Ribery to name a few.

Bringing in Inzaghi or Toni may very well necessitate bringing in a second DP just to help them out; would the Impact really want to use up one of three DP spots for a forward that would heavily depend on someone else to make them click?

It's not to say that Inzaghi and Toni would flop in Montreal, but players like Alessandro Del Piero (Juventus), Nicolas Anelka and Didier Drogba (Chelsea) - also in the final year of their contracts - would be able to contribute in more ways than one. Del Piero can score goals, set up teammates and is one of the best set play specialists around. Anelka can play in any position up front and Drogba can score goals in a whole variety of ways, including on free kicks.

Ex-Montreal striker Ali Gerba just wanted a fair chance,
and he didn't get it



Almost a month after the end of the club's first MLS trial camp, Gerba opened up to TSN 990's Tony Marinaro and gave his own version of the story. And it goes like this...

Ali Gerba thought that he was a lock to make MLS team a year ago -according to himself- and was surprised when Marsch announced him the bad news. The Canadian international still has respect for the club, despite claiming that they used the 'easy way out' to send him packing.

"I think it's something personal against me", Gerba said today, before explaining that he had very good relationships with club president Joey Saputo, ex-Impact coach Marc Dos Santos and coach Jesse Marsch. Gerba claims that the new head coach even offered him to come and use the training facilities to help him get back to his full fitness.

WILEMAN: IMPACT CONTINUE TO PREP MLS ROSTER;
ANELKA A TARGET



As the Montreal Impact continue their preparations to join Major League Soccer in 2012, speculation continues surrounding potential big name additions to their squad. The Impact are exploring the possibility of signing a Designated Player, and French striker Nicolas Anelka remains a target.

Speaking with lesoccerplus this weekend, Impact Head Coach Jesse Marsch said the signing of Anelka "is still a possibility," but talked about the "tricky parts" involved in doing a deal for a big time Designated Player and "unique demands" that need to be met.

Montreal Impact Academy
Candidates for the 2012/2013 Graduating Class



Last week I wrote an article on Toronto FC Academy and possible candidates for the next graduating class, so with the Montréal Impact coming into Major League Soccer next season I’ve decided to do something similar showcasing some of the talented players that could get a call up. However, the situation is a little different in Montréal as they are not only an expansion side having to go through an Expansion Draft, Re-Entry Draft and the MLS Super Draft. They are also going under stadium renovations as well as being coached by a former MLS veteran and first time coach Jesse Marsch who is part of former US National Team Coach Bob Bradley's coaching tree as one of his assistants

While I don’t want or like to make comparisons between the academies of either team in my opinion I think Montréal Impact Academy is a little further along in their development of players then Toronto FC, as the players I mention in this article are only five of about eight to ten players that could easily make this list.

Note that all jerseys will be on sale on the following day on December 2, while the other items will be available at a later date.

Montreal executive Legendre says jersey will be on sale on Dec. 2


“I can’t tell you much,” Legendre said with a laugh. “The only detail I can give you is that there will be elements in the shirt that the fans will definitely appreciate. I can also tell you that there will probably be more than one.”

The shirt will be made available on Dec. 2, and Legendre also confirmed that a store will be opened at the club’s new sales offices located on University Street.

“We’ve always wanted to be downtown, even more so during the offseason,” he said. “Having a store downtown is a good step forward for us.”

The club is also expected to launch its new website on Nov. 17, and then take part in the MLS Expansion Draft on Nov. 23.

ASSESSING THE IMFC RESERVES SEASON


With a sixth place finish synonymous with a place in the quarter-finals in the Canadian Soccer League (CSL), the Montreal Impact reserve team improved upon its standing from 2010, and despite being eliminated by Capital City FC, the U21s walked away from the 2011 season with many positives, including a spot in the playoffs, something the team failed to do the year prior.

“That was our objective and we were able to attain it,” said the head coach of the reserve team, Philippe Eullafroy. “This is proof that we’ve progressed. Playing in elimination games was an important experience for our young players. Even though we are a developmental team, we have to cultivate a winning attitude. The reserve team must understand the importance of winning at this level.”

LOOKING FOR TWO SUPPORTERS
TO LAUNCH THE NEW JERSEY



MONTREAL – The Journal de Montreal, in collaboration with the Montreal Impact, will host a contest in which two Impact supporters will be chosen to wear the new exclusive team jersey at the official unveiling on December 1, at the Montreal Science Centre.

Fans are asked to show their support for the club by uploading a picture of them online at the following address: www.journalmontreal.com/fansimpact

THE IMPACT OPEN OFFICES DOWNTOWN

In order to be closer to the business community and facilitate meetings with potential season ticket holders, the sales team will now be housed in new offices in downtown Montreal, located at 1100 University (Office 104), between René-Lévesque and Belmont.

Information sessions on season packages and Stade Saputo will be held in the new Impact offices on November 24 and 28. Those interested in learning about the club’s vision and who would like to meet members of the management team and technical staff can call 514-328-5170.

An Impact boutique will also be in place and will open on December 2, the day after the unveiling of the team’s new jersey. The operating hours will be Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm.


A NEW WEBSITE

The Montreal Impact will launch its new website soon, around MLS Cup and the Expansion Draft. The new site, which will have the same web address: impactmontreal.com, was conceived along Major League Soccer’s platform and will be available on the MLS network.

The new website was developed under the new branding of the club and will be even more comprehensive than the previous. In the era of social media, the purpose of the site is to improve the fan experience online, but also during their visit to the stadium.
