Joe Public Vows Revenge 'By Four Goals'
Montreal Gazette, September 18th, 2008 2:30PM

MOST COMMENTED

Even as the Montreal Impact celebrated another fine result for the United Soccer Leagues' representatives in the Concacaf Champions League Wednesday, its defeated opponent vowed a terrible revenge. Joe Public coach Keith Griffith, whose side fell 2-0 to the Impact, boldly forecast that his side would win the return game in Trinidad next month "by four goals clear for sure."
 
"I'm quietly confident, but I won't give you the reason why," Griffith said. "We'll beat them by three, four clear goals for sure. We knew we had the chances tonight and [Impact goalkeeper Matt Jordan] can't be that brilliant again."
 
Montreal's head coach John Limniatis wondered which game Griffith had been watching, and if "he has a direct line to God, who tells him what the result will be. Obviously he has every right to say what he wants and every right to be confident. But at the end of the day [your players] have to show it on the field and seeing the game tonight, I don't see how he can say they will win by four goals, because while they do have offensive ability and talent, [defensively] they're very suspect."
 
In the group's other game, Atlante (Mexico) hosts CD Olimpia (Honduras) Thursday. The Impact's second Group C game will be at home to Atlante next Wednesday.
