    5 Things Valour FC Need to Figure Out this Month


    There is no way to sugar-coat it: Valour FC’ spring season was an utter disaster, and despite the team being a relatively young group of players that are still gelling together and finding their feet, there isn’t much excuse for the way things finished. In a league where most of the teams are on par and matches are extremely close, losing 6 games in a row is extremely alarming, and is a sign of major problems.

    Luckily, Valour get a fresh start for the fall season, but we cannot act as if this team will somehow click together at some point if they keep doing what they’re doing – changes need to be made, and the coaching staff has a checklist of things they need to figure out prior to their opening match of the fall against Edmonton on the 17th.

    • There was/is a player with the same last name in the Prem, they also pronounce it Davis.
    • Wimbledon FC was relocated approximately 50 miles to a place that was easy to reach from Wimbledon. The thinking in allowing it was that Wimbledon fans could still easily continue to support the team. Nevertheless, the fall out was significant and that type of relatively small but certainly non trivial move is unlikely to be allowed again by the English FA. Not the same thing at all as moving the Jets from Winnipeg to Phoenix (for example).
    • Stop giving him ideas! We are leaking goals like a rusy old sieve so he might just think two keepers would be worth a try! Too bad it doesn't occur to him to drop sh!t players instead.
    • Totally disagree. They are poor at developing talent because they don't need to. They have so much money they can just buy the next flavour of the month kid. It has nothing to do with how competitive the league is. It has to do with resources.
    • Rob Gale getting very defensive these days. And getting very handy with the excuses as the losses mount up. ... “It’s unfortunate; one penalty, either way, makes a big difference, but, to be fair, we shouldn’t have let it get into that area in the first place,” Gale told the OneSoccer broadcast crew after the match. “It was that five minutes, just right after the water break (in the 2nd half), where we switched off, and (our) legs were gone, maybe. (Translation: bloody ref has done us again.) ... They gave it their all – that’s not a club that’s got a mentality problem or a crisis, let me tell you, before you ask a rubbish question.” (Translation: don't you dare ask me why Valour have gone eight matches and counting without a win -- not to mention 7 losses and a solitary draw!) https://valourfc.canpl.ca/article/gale-praises-valours-mentality-dismisses-rubbish-crisis-talk
    • Try telling Clydebank and Meadowbank Thistle fans in Scotland or Wimbledon fans in England that you can't have a club as opposed to a franchise yanked away from you. Beyond that I really couldn't care less either way as long as pro soccer in Canada thrives in the years ahead. MLS has led the way in showing pro soccer can work. Hopefully CanPL does likewise in the years ahead. Most normal soccer people in Canada would want both leagues to do well. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relocation_of_Wimbledon_F.C._to_Milton_Keynes http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/scotland/2118528.stm
    • Probably why he was left off then.
    • September is the expected timeline, but even then his minutes will be managed carefully. We shouldnt be calling him up until 2020.  
    • Probably just Akinola. Never heard anything about this kid being eligible for the states.
