Welcome Montreal to Major League Soccer, news and notes

The announcement is going to come at 7 a.m. Pacific Time on Friday morning, so let’s get this post up for discussion before that so we can sleep in. What do you think of adding Montreal to the league in 2012?
The ownership group, the fan support, the stadium. Is it all there to your liking? It is for me. You want cities that will embrace their team and the Canadian clubs have done well so far: Toronto is profitable and it sounds like Vancouver is on the same path.
The Impact get 10K a game for those USSF D2 Pro League matches. That’s higher than what, three teams in MLS right now?
On to the other links:

Some video entertainment to close it out, entertaining moments with coaches is the theme.
1. Jose Mourinho tries to get a second look at an offside call in a nearby TV monitor.

2. Harry Redknapp tried to get through a postgame interview before being interrupted.
