If you missed the Vancouver Southsiders' tifo in tribute to the Canadian women's national team, here's a picture from my cell phone. Christopher Vose of Away from the Numbers took a proper picture here. The banners read: "BRONZE IN LONDON GOLD IN OUR HEARTS" with a list of the medal-winning players, plus head coach John Herdman. It was completed in less than twenty-four hours by dedicated Southsider volunteers and raised in the twelfth minute in honour of Burnaby native Christine Sinclair.
Safe to say all of us Leeds United fans are delighted O'Brien has gone. Big wages for our team, terrible player and ageing. Sad to see him suffer from depression but he never did anything for us. He was once taken off during a game against a team two divisions below us for playing that bad at centre-back and we were winning.
Having said that, and no offence the MLS should be easier for him in more than one way. The MLS is growing no doubt about it but the level over here is much better. He has a chance now to live in a beautiful country, and start again! He has bags of experience, and an old head for those around him. If he can position himself properly then he may make an impact.
