Fresh Meat: Quincy Amarikwa and Michael Azira

It was a hectic transfer deadline day for Remi Garde. With the Montreal Impact in a fight for there playoff lives, it was compulsory for Garde to bring in some reinforcements. Any help could increase his team’s chance of obtaining a playoff spot. Quincy Amarikwa Born: Bakersfield, California, United States Date of Birth: October 29, 1987 Height: 5’9 When the signing of Jimmy Briand failed to come to fruition, Remi Garde had to quickly find a solution to bring in some much needed scoring punch.

Fresh Meat: Bacary Sagna

Fresh Meat: Bacary Sagna

During this transfer window, Remi Garde was wheeling and dealing to patch up and alleviate the weaknesses of his squad. The acquisition of Bacary Sagna completely came out of left field in the view of many. The Impact may have been an attractive option considering the french population in Montreal and the French presence on the team. Rudy Camacho, Rod Fanni, Zakaria Diallo and the entire staff of the Montreal Impact are French natives. Furthermore, Samuel Piette, Saphir Taider and David Choiniere among others can all speak french. Throughout this campaign, it was evident that the Impact...

With a transfer window a little less than a month long and the Impact looking to solidify their playoff position, many were looking at the moves that they would make before August 9th. After the signing of Jimmy Briand, who could have solved a few issues for the Impact, fell through, all eyes were on this elusive plan B the club promised. Plan B may have taken a long time to show up and I don’t think plan B is done but with a few hours to spare before the end of the transfer...

Recap: #IMFC vs #DCU

When a tie feels more like a loss... The Impact hosted DC United on Saturday night and while this match up should have been at the advantage of the Impact, newcomer to DC United Wayne Rooney was all the talk. The former Manchester United man drew a lot of interest from Montreal soccer fans in the week prior to the game and was likely in the preparation of the club as well. Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports Within the first fifteen minutes of the game things looked very promising. In the fifth minute, Taider made a nice run down the left before passing the ball to Piatti...

Jimmy Briand, Case Closed

Jimmy Briand, Case Closed

After the contract fell through last week, Garde revealed he was trying to reopen negotiations but not much changed. In two weeks a non-signing has never been discussed this much by the club, fans and even players. The whole Jimmy Briand debacle was one for the books, unfortunately for the Montreal Impact. From the claims made by the club saying, Briand tried adding last minute changes to the contract, to the agent saying the club did not want to put stuff on paper. The whole thing was a little messy to say the least. Photo by Michael Steele/ At the beginning of the...

Transfer News: Jimmy Briand is Bleu-Blanc-Noir

The long awaited addition of a dominant striker has finally arrived. It’s official Jimmy Briand has joined the Montreal Impact. The Impact has found themselves as of late and the only missing piece to the puzzle is a striker that can be deadly in the final third. Briand is the hopeful solution. In his last three seasons spent with Guingmap he’s managed to find the net 32 times in 118 games.
