Butler: Impact ready to take on Red Bulls at Olympic Stadium

This time last week, Montreal was awash with nostalgia for their Expos as Olympic Stadium formed the backdrop to Major League Baseball's weekend residency in La Belle Ville. And as TSN Radio 690's Noel Butler writes, the Impact reclaim the building on Saturday when they face the New York Red Bulls. ...more

Butler: The Beginning of the end for Moyes?

The Old Trafford storm clouds are certainly gathering and how David Moyes will hope that infamous Manchester rain will play its part just ahead of the kick off against Aston Villa Saturday when most of the 75,000 in attendance will be gazing skyward at a plane which will trail a, "Wrong One: Moyes Out" banner. TSN Soccer Analyst Noel Butler has more. ...more

Butler: Impact need to play through stadium distractions

Hard to imagine a venue, which played host to one of the Montreal Impact's most memorable matches in their history when over 55,000 packed in for the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League quarter-finals in February 2009, would play spoiler for today's home opener. There goes my thinking as a parent that snow days only occurred at school. Not in a domed building. ...more

Butler: Lessons learned by Impact to be applied in Houston

Ninety minutes doesn't make a season. Just ask last season's Supporters Shield winners, the New York Red Bulls, who were resoundingly defeated last weekend by a rampant Vancouver Whitecaps. Still, the Montreal Impact don't want to start the season at 0-2 and will have to get by the rival Houston Dynamo on Saturday to make sure that doesn't happen. TSN's Noel Butler has more. ...more

Butler: Not so good ship MUFC back from winter vacation

In this most unpredictable of BPL seasons, the top four clubs battled it out in a pair of enthralling FA Cup ties last weekend. Meanwhile, the current champions were sunning themselves by the pool in Dubai. TSN Radio 690 soccer analyst Noel Butler breaks down Manchester United's season at this point, as well as their signing of Wayne Rooney to a contract extension. ...more

Butler: Impact happy flying under the radar this off-season

As their principal league rival came to terms with their seven-year MLS itch by splashing their loadsamoney cash and monopolizing the headlines, that likely even NYC FC owner Sheik Mansour has been paying attention to, the Montreal Impact have gone about their off season with a minimum of fuss. ...more

Butler: Stand up for Manchester United's annus horribilis

Shockingly, David Moyes's first year in charge of Manchester United has been, at this point, better than either of Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson's debut seasons at Old Trafford. With the title out of reach, United can still qualify for Champions League, but would missing out be better in the long run? TSN soccer analyst Noel Butler has more. ...more

Butler: Hit the players where it hurts most: the wallet

A weekend off from BPL allowed us a chance to catch our breaths and look back at the season to date. And while there have been many captivating moments, most regrettably the dark art of diving has been rampant and is distorting and destroying the beautiful game. TSN soccer analyst Noel Butler calls it a league-wide epidemic. ...more

Butler: Boxing Day abiding memories; upholding tradition

Not that he counts, but TSN's Noel Butler is rigidly opposed to any form of a winter break. What's the point? So England's richest clubs can fare better against their footballing superior European counterparts? English clubs seemed to be holding their own. ...more
