Halloween is coming up, so we decided on a Halloween cover. “The Walking Reds” cover combines soccer and zombies. Why? Because soccer and zombies were meant to be together. And it looks cool. What will you find inside? • Interviews with Alen Marcina and Adrian Cann, as they talk about Canada’s unofficial team in the NASL, the San Antonio Scorpions. • NASL Commissioner Bill Peterson addresses NASL Canada rumours, the future of the league in Canada and if his league will one day recognize Canadians as full domestics. (Interestingly, Peterson says that the issue of having Canadians recognized as domestics on American teams is a “federation issue” and he didn’t bring up labour law) • We look back at the U-20 Women’s World Cup, and assess just how much we can expect from Canada at the Women’s World Cup in 2015 • An in-depth look at David Monsalve and Dominic Oppong, teammates at AC Oulu • FC Dallas’s Tesho Akindele on playing for Canada… when will it happen? • Toronto FC coach Greg Vanney looks forward to the future • John Molinaro gives MLS some advice on how it can fix its marquee game, the MLS Cup • Mike Wyman looks at the Montreal Impact’s penchant for promoting its Quebec kids to the senior roster • We talk to Kyle Porter, who has bounced between D.C. United and Richmond of USL-PRO • Grassroots soccer in Quebec, and how it sets an example for semipro soccer across Canada • What is it about Brampton? From Peter Roe to Atiba Hutchinson to Paul Stalteri to Kadeisha Buchanan, why is it the centre of Canadian soccer? Whew.
