Reports on Sunday from stated that the Impact were on the verge of signing 33-year-old left back Siaka Tiene. When contacted by, the club denied the report, stating that they’ve had no contact with the player. Tiene, an Ivory Coast international who boasts World Cup and African Cup of Nations experience, most recently played with Ligue 1 club Montpellier and has been out of contract since the summer.

Tiene, who will turn 34 in February, has spent the majority of his career in France, playing for clubs like Paris Saint-Germain, Valenciennes and Saint-Étienne.

Refugees coming to the MTL southshore


**This is an ongoing event from now until the end of the year, and beyond.**

La Maison Internationale de la Rive Sud and Mission Nouvelle Génération (both located near Provencher & Pelletier in Brossard) are teaming up. Among other things, they are in a position to receive donations of winter clothing for refugees coming into the Brossard area (for now).

What I like about both these organizations is that no donation will go to waste. If they receive more than they need, Mission Nouvelle Génération will pass it on to other families in the local area who are in need. (Let’s not forget these families as we care for the refugees coming in.) Or La Maison Internationale will pass it on to refugees in nearby refugee resettlement areas.

Both places are able to take your donations. Check their respective websites for hours of operation. (If possible, avoid Thursday drop-off at Mission Nouvelle Génération because that is a very busy day in the community for them.)

For adults and children:
-Winter coats and jackets
-Warm winter boots
-Hats, gloves, mittens, scarves
-Warm sweaters
-Long sleeve t-shirts/thermal undergarments
-Thermal socks (new or like new)
-Synthetic socks (cotton socks make your feet cold) (new)
-Blankets (like thermal fleece blankets)

All items should be clean and in good condition. Worn out winter clothing is not warm. 🙂

Other practical items which can be dropped off specifically at Mission Nouvelle Génération are:
-Toiletries (soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, feminine hygiene products) *new, never opened.
-Reusable grocery bags, clean
-Diapers, formula
-New socks and underwear
-School supplies (crayons, coloured pencils, backpacks, pencils, pens, white erasers, writing books, pencil cases, scissors, glue sticks, calculators, rulers, math sets, USB keys, ear buds, 1 inch and 1.5 inch binders, Crayola type markers, lunch boxes…) *new
-Non-perishable food items in cans, bags, or boxes. (No glass jars)
-New Toys, colouring books, stickers…

For these other practical items which can be dropped off at Mission Nouvelle Génération, I’ve not received confirmation that any of these items will be used uniquely for refugees. Keep in mind this is a community help centre who’s food bank helps thousands of local families, many of whom were already refugees and immigrants even before the Syrian refugee crisis was on our radar. And many who are simply local families in need, whom we should not ignore either, especially as these local families may end up forgotten this year as the demand placed on our community for the needs of refugees diverts much of our attention that way.

Monetary donations are always a good idea, if you prefer to give that way. I know Mission Nouvelle Génération can emit tax deductible receipts for donations. If you’d like to know if MIRS also does this, I’m certain they’d be glad to answer that question for you.

You are all amazing for responding. And I’m excited for what we will accomplish together!

Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar all netted as Barcelona eased to a 4-0 win overReal Sociedad, keeping them in the driving seat at the top of the Primera Division.

The Catalans had a lot to live up to after thrashing arch rivals Real Madrid 4-0 at the Bernabeu last weekend and then blitzing Roma 6-1 on Tuesday. They did not disappoint, taking the lead midway through the first half through Neymar.

”It comes naturally for them. They look out for one another and aren’t happy unless all three score,” Barcelona coach Luis Enrique said. “”I hope the best from the team is still to come.”

MLS Playoff

Consider the first leg of those conference finals as a scene setter. Columbus and Portland took significant steps toward MLS Cup with their performances on home soil. It is now down to New York Red Bulls and FC Dallas to summon their replies in the decisive return legs on Sunday.

Make no mistake: The road ahead is a difficult one for the Red Bulls and FC Dallas. MLS teams generally do not recover from multiple-goal deficits from the first leg. No side has accomplished the feat since the league transitioned to two-legged conference finals three years ago.

The finalist with the best regular season record hosts MLS Cup next Sunday (4:00p.m. ET).
1.New York Red Bulls
2.FC Dallas
3.Columbus Crew SC

History does not dictate the outcomes on Sunday, though. FC Dallas boasts a fine home record and penchant for blowing teams out in Frisco. New York revels in the opportunity to place teams under pressure and unsettle them at Red Bull Arena. Both teams possess the tools to overturn their deficits and seal a place in MLS Cup.
