Montreal Impact (1992–2011)
The Montreal Impact was a Canadian professional soccer club based in Montreal, Canada. Founded in 1992, the team played in the United Soccer League; the Impact played in the North American Soccer League, the second tier of the American Soccer Pyramid until the 2011 season. The owner Joey Saputo now operates the MLS team Montreal Impact; the team played its home games at Complexe Sportif Claude-Robillard until 2008 when it moved to the new Saputo Stadium where it played until its move to MLS. The team's colours were white; the Impact had 11 different head coaches during these years. The Impact operated a reserve team, the Trois-Rivières Attak, from 2006 until 2010 which played in the Canadian Soccer League until 2010 when the Impact created their own Montreal Impact Academy, they used to operate an indoor team in the NPSL with many of the same players, from 1997–1998 to 1999–2000. On May 7, 2010, Impact owner Joey Saputo was granted a Major League Soccer expansion franchise set to begin play in Saputo Stadium in 2012.
Although, in a legal sense, the Montreal MLS expansion team is an separate legal entity, the new team carries the Impact name and maintains the team's legacy in the MLS. The Impact club was founded in 1992 by the Saputo family, as the owners of the Montreal Supra of the Canadian Soccer League did not pursue an APSL franchise by the deadline set by the U. S. league. The Montreal ownership and front office split with their main financial sponsor announcing the start of a new APSL club on December 13, 1992 with the Supra coach. In 1993 the APSL was trying to gain the USSF Division 1 sanctioning required by FIFA with the award of the 1994 FIFA World Cup and the estimated $60 million in World Cup profits, they became the A-League, renamed the USL First Division. The team did not compete during the 1999 A-League season, their main rivals were the Rochester Rhinos and the Toronto Lynx prior to the latter's move to the USL Premier Development League. Following a lacklustre first year, the Impact surprised the defending champion Colorado Foxes on October 15, 1994, at home in front of a sold out Montreal crowd to claim their first league title.
Subsequently, the team finished first or tied for first during the regular season in 1995, 1996, 1997 and 2003 without making it back to the final. The Impact lost to archrivals Rochester in their first four playoff encounters, in 1996, 1998, 2002 and 2003, before defeating them in 2004 en route to their second title; the club was favoured to repeat in 2005, but after a near-flawless season the Impact were ousted in the semi-finals by the eventual champions, the Seattle Sounders. The team won the inaugural Voyageurs Cup in 2002 and defended this title from 2003 to 2008. In 2009 the Impact were crowned at home for their third title, beating the Vancouver Whitecaps FC by an aggregate score of 6–3 in a Cinderella ending to what had been a tumultuous season. In 2004, the Impact finished first in the A-League's Eastern Conference before disposing of Rochester and Seattle in the playoffs to capture their second championship, 10 years after their first; the final, held in Montreal, saw an all-time record 13,648 fans at Complexe sportif Claude-Robillard Stadium.
The MVP was Mauricio Vincello. Frederick Commodore sealed the game with a goal at the 78th minute. At the gate, the Impact had always been solid within the league before 1999 with average crowds of 4,000–5,000. After disappointing seasons in 2000 and 2001, the team had new record attendances in 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005–2006; the all-time single game high was the 55,571 fans in attendance for the 2009 CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final against Santos Laguna at Olympic Stadium in Montreal. In 1999, the owners had a conflict with the league and withdrew the team from competition, but did play indoor soccer that year in the National Professional Soccer League. After resurfacing in 2000, the club went bankrupt during the 2001 season when the then-owners were Ionian. Administered until the end of the season by one of the original pillars, Joey Saputo, the club rose from its ashes in 2002, set up as a non-profit organization owned by the Quebec government, Hydro-Québec and Saputo, it attracted many big-time sponsors such as the National Bank of Canada, Bell Canada and Coca-Cola, among others.
The team's mandate is to develop local talent and to serve as a representative of Montreal for tourism. Since the Impact's renaissance in 2002, Quebec-born players have played a much more central role in the Canadian national team, after many years of non-selection. For the 2005 Gold Cup, players Gabriel Gervais, Sandro Grande, Patrick Leduc, Adam Braz and Ali Gerba, as well as former player Patrice Bernier and Quebec-born Olivier Occean were all called to the national team and did well by most accounts; the visibility helped Grande and Ali, who both transferred to Scandinavia shortly after the tournament. On July 15, 2006 the team won the 200th victory in its history. For the first time in its history, the Montreal Impact contracted players to 10 months out of the year in 2008; this extended training camp was a first for the Montreal Impact and many in the media have stated that it is a move to next level in professional soccer. They began the ye

On January 21, 2010, Chivas traded Harmse to Houston Dynamo for a conditional third- or fourth-round draft pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft. Due to Harmse not being able to train with the club in pre-season due to a recurring injury, Houston opted to waive him on March 9, 2010. Harmse was signed by Vancouver Whitecaps FC on March 25, 2011, but was waived on June 10, having played in just three MLS games for the club. On December 13, 2011, it was announced that Harmse signed with the expansion side San Antonio Scorpions of the North American Soccer League.

San Jose Earthquakes
The San Jose Earthquakes are an American professional soccer team based in San Jose, United States, that competes as a member of the Western Conference of Major League Soccer. The franchise began play as one of the charter clubs of the league; the Earthquakes took part in the first game in MLS history, defeating D. C. United 1–0; the Earthquakes have won two MLS Cup titles, in 2001 and 2003, two Supporters' Shields in 2005 and 2012. In 2002, the team played in its first CONCACAF Champions Cup; the team holds a fierce rivalry with the LA Galaxy known as the California Clásico. In 2005, the owner of the Earthquakes, Anschutz Entertainment Group, announced plans of the team relocating to Houston due to failing efforts to secure a soccer-specific stadium in San Jose; the organization in Houston would be considered an expansion team by the league becoming the Houston Dynamo, who began play in 2006. The Earthquakes returned after a two-year hiatus, resuming play in 2008. Argentinan, Matías Almeyda is the Quakes' current head coach.
The Earthquakes play their home games at Avaya Stadium beginning in 2015. The team played its home games at Buck Shaw Stadium on the Santa Clara University campus in Santa Clara, California from 2008 to 2014. In 2018, the club added the dubious MLS Wooden Spoon to its trophy case for ending up bottom of the MLS league table, finishing the season with 21 points in 34 games; the franchise's roots trace back to 1974, when the North American Soccer League awarded an expansion franchise to San Jose, named the Earthquakes. The name Earthquakes came from a newspaper contest in the San Jose Mercury News, in which fans were encouraged to send in suggestions for the name of the franchise. Earthquakes was chosen by the team's general manager Dick Berg, but was criticized due to San Jose's proximity to the San Andreas Fault; the NASL folded after the 1984 season and the Earthquakes played in the Western Soccer League from 1985–88, under the ownership of Peter Bridgwater who sold the team in 1988. In 1994, Daniel Van Voorhis, former owner of the American Professional Soccer League's San Jose Hawks led a San Jose bidding group, awarded one of Major League Soccer's inaugural teams.
At that time, he handed over all existing Hawks player contracts, front-office resources and the rights to play in San Jose State University's Spartan Stadium to MLS in exchange for Type C stock in the league. He became the franchise's investor/operator until outside concerns forced him to divest himself of these positions prior to the league's launch and accept a buyout from the league, leaving the franchise league-owned for several years. Meanwhile, a direct connection to the earlier Earthquakes came in the person of Peter Bridgwater, named as general manager of the MLS team. Although Bridgwater still owned the rights to the Earthquakes name and logo, the team became known as the Clash at the urging of Nike, a major investor in MLS. On December 7, 1995, Bridgwater hired Laurie Calloway as the team's first coach, providing a second direct connection with the NASL Earthquakes, as well as a connection with the Hawks. On January 23, 1996, the Clash acquired US national team star Eric Wynalda, despite the fact that Wynalda and Calloway did not get along during their time together with the Hawks.
The Clash's connections to the Blackhawks continued when the club made the first trade in MLS history, sending Rhett Harty to the MetroStars for Troy Dayak. San Jose was an integral part of the launching of MLS, hosting the league's inaugural game at Spartan Stadium before a crowd of 31,683 on April 6, 1996; the crowd did not go away disappointed as San Jose won its first game on the first goal in MLS history from Eric Wynalda, defeating D. C. United 1–0. One month the club made history again, as they hosted the Los Angeles Galaxy in a match that drew 31,728 fans to Spartan Stadium, setting the record for attendance at a sporting event in the city of San Jose, but Wynalda and Calloway were soon at each other's throats again leading to a locker room brawl between Wynalda and John Doyle. The skirmish reached memorable proportions when Wynalda hired an airplane to tow a banner demanding Calloway's firing. Although the Clash made the postseason in the inaugural MLS season in 1996, Doyle earned recognition as the best MLS defender, the team floundered in 1997.
By mid-season the team was sinking fast and Bridgwater fired Calloway and replaced him with Brian Quinn. The Clash finished 1997 at the bottom of the Western Conference standings with a 12–20 record. Things were no better in 1998. During the 1999 pre-season, the saga of player-coach antagonism continued when Richard Gough left the team after an argument with Quinn. By the end of 1999, Quinn was done and the team released him to hire Lothar Osiander; the franchise's official name changed from Clash to Earthquakes on October 27, 1999. After missing four consecutive post-seasons with three different coaches, the Earthquakes hired head coach Frank Yallop days before the 2001 MLS SuperDraft. Yallop's personnel changes and deft coaching with the help of assistant coach Dominic Kinnear and goalkeeper coach Tim Hanley, along with the allocation of star forward Landon Donovan on loan from Bayer Leverkusen turned around the Earthquakes' on-field fortunes, spurring the biggest regular season turnaround in league history and leading the team to a 2–1 MLS Cup 2001 overtime victory over the archrival Los Angeles Galaxy.
The Quakes followed with two consecutive runners-up finishes for the MLS Supporters' Shield and a 4–2 ML

Following his first year, he elected to turn professional, signing a contract with the Toronto Lynx while attending York University. After playing one season with the Lynx, alongside fellow Canadian national teammate Dwayne De Rosario, where he led the team in scoring with eight goals and two assists, Stalteri was noticed by a scout from Werder Bremen and purchased from the team. After two and a half seasons in the reserves, Stalteri made his debut with the club in August 2000, scoring in the first game of the season against Energie Cottbus. During the 2001–02 season, Stalteri established his role in the first team at Bremen and went on to cement his role as a regular in the 2002–03 season. In 2003–04, Werder Bremen won the Bundesliga. In May 2005, Stalteri transferred to English Premiership club Tottenham Hotspur, he featured in the 2005–06 campaign as Spurs narrowly missed out on a Champions League place, but the arrival of full back Pascal Chimbonda at White Hart Lane the following season limited his chances.
On March 4, 2007, after coming on as a substitute, he scored a dramatic last minute winner against London rivals West Ham United to complete an extraordinary 4–3 win. He had hardly featured in the first team all season up to that point, his other Spurs goals came against Manchester City in Leicester City in the FA Cup. On January 31, 2008, Stalteri moved to Fulham on loan until the end of the season, he made his debut for Fulham away at Middlesbrough on February 9, 2008 where his team lost 1–0.

Stalteri was a regular starter for the Canadian national team for over ten years since making his debut on August 17, 1997 against Iran. In total, he scored 7 goals for the national team; that made him the most capped Canadian of all time until this record was surpassed by Julian De Guzman in 2015.
He was named team captain for a friendly on June 1, 2007 against Venezuela, remained captain for international fixtures for the rest of his international career including for the entirety of the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup. On September 7, 2010 Stalteri earned his 83rd cap for Canada in a 2–1 win over Honduras making him the all-time leader in appearances for the Canadian Men's National Team.

Julian de Guzman
Julian Bobby de Guzman is a Canadian soccer coach and former professional player, the general manager of the Ottawa Fury. De Guzman was the first Canadian to play in the Spanish La Liga. While playing in Spain, he was voted 2007–08 Deportivo La Coruña Player of the Year. De Guzman has played at both the Canadian U-20 and Senior level, he was awarded the Canadian Player of the Year in 2008 and in 2007 became only the second Canadian international to be awarded the CONCACAF Gold Cup Most Valuable Player, he is the all-time cap leader of the Canadian national team, a record he has held alone since November 2015 when he surpassed Paul Stalteri's previous record of 84 appearances. From 2013–2016, he was captain of the Canadian men's national team. De Guzman was discovered by representatives of Olympique Marseille while playing for the North Scarborough youth soccer club in Toronto. After playing with Marseille's reserve side, De Guzman became a first-team with 1. FC Saarbrücken in the German 2. Bundesliga in the 2000–01 season, where he made two appearances, in the 2001–02 season, where he made 19 appearances.
In 21 appearances he never scored. In 2002, he joined newly promoted Hannover 96, becoming only the third Canadian to play in the German First Bundesliga, he made 20 appearances during 2002 -- 32 appearances in both 2003 -- 04 and 2004 -- 05 seasons. De Guzman's contract with Hannover expired in 2005 allowing him to move to any team with no transfer fee, he was linked with a move to Tottenham where he would have joined Canadian captain Paul Stalteri. He decided against the move to London due to the depth in the centre of mid-field, instead chose to join Deportivo La Coruña in Spain becoming the first Canadian to play in La Liga. After playing a starring role in the club's remarkable turnaround in the 2007–2008 season to avoid relegation and gain a spot in the UEFA Cup, De Guzman was named the team's player of the season. In 95 appearances he scored one goal, his only goal with Deportivo came in 2005 against the Spanish giants Real Madrid. His contract with Deportivo expired in the summer of 2009.
In September 2009 an agreement was reached with Toronto FC for De Guzman to sign as a designated player, becoming the first Canadian Designated Player in league history. His contract was worth $1,910,746 annually; the Canadian midfielder signed a three-year deal to play in MLS. De Guzman made his debut for the club in an away game against the Los Angeles Galaxy on September 19, 2009, he finished the 2009 season with five appearances. De Guzman was able to convince former Deportivo teammate and friend Mista to join Toronto in July 2010. De Guzman was criticized for his inconsistent performances as a designated player in the 2010 season making 36 appearances in all competitions. Much doubt was left over the future of De Guzman and Toronto on November 23 when the club failed to protect him for the 2010 MLS Expansion Draft, meaning Vancouver Whitecaps FC or Portland Timbers could select him if they were willing to take on a Designated Players Salary. However, he was untouched going through the sixth round when Vancouver selected O'Brian White which allowed Toronto to protect one player for the remaining four rounds in which they protected De Guzman.
On January 5, 2011 De Guzman revealed that he would be undergoing knee surgery to repair a torn meniscus which might have plagued his performance for the last quarter of the season. In January 2011, Toronto hired Aron Winter as the head coach of the club to bring in a new style of possession soccer, many pundits believed that this new style would benefit De Guzman's abilities and allow him to succeed within the MLS. Ten days before the new season kicked off it was revealed that De Guzman would miss this first game against Vancouver and a few more, due to Winter not wanting to aggravate the recent successful surgery. De Guzman scored his first goal for Toronto in CONCACAF Champions League play against Tauro FC August 18, 2011, the game ended in a 2–0 away victory. On July 13, 2012 De Guzman was traded to FC Dallas in exchange for forward Andrew Wiedeman. De Guzman made his debut for Dallas against San Jose Earthquakes on July 18, the game ended in a 2–1 away defeat. De Guzman scored his only goal for Dallas on September 15 against Vancouver, a left footed volley more than 20 yards out six minutes into second half stoppage time.
De Guzman remained with FC Dallas through the 2012 season. His contract expired after 2012 and the club made him available for the 2012 MLS Re-Entry Draft in December 2012. De Guzman became a free agent. On the last day of the 2012–13 winter transfer window, De Guzman joined SSV Jahn Regensburg, he made his debut for the team on February 3, playing all 90 minutes in a 1–5 loss against Hertha BSC. At the end of the season Jahn Regensburg was relegated from 2. Bundesliga, when De Guzman signed in January he had a clause that if they were relegated he would automatically become a free agent, he had made 15 appearances dor the club. Following the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup in late July, De Guzman signed for Skoda Xanthi in the Superleague Greece, his debut came in a third round UEFA Europa League match against Standard Liège on August 1. He scored in the second leg of the series on August 8, he made his league debut for the club on August 17 in a 3–0 loss to P. A. O. K.. After his contract expired, he looked for a club in or near Germany to be closer to his family, but he has not found anything as of yet.
After several months without a club he was rumoured to be signing with Columbus Crew following a training spell with the MLS club, however a week de Guzman signed with Ottawa Fury of the North American Soccer League on March 27, 2015. He made his debut on Apri
