    Canadian Championship Quarterfinals: What does this mean for the CanPL?

    The Quarterfinals have passed and only 4 clubs remain in the Canadian Championship. The battle for the Voyageurs Cup has lead to some fantastic ties, and with only more excitement to come, it can only get better.

    Being in its inaugural year the Canadian Premier League (CanPL) clubs are getting their first taste of cup action, and their first swing at the Voyageurs Cup. With three CanPL clubs making it to the quarterfinals, they did not disappoint.

    York9, Cavalry FC, and HFX Wanderers had the rest of the league at their backs. They put on a spectacle and proved their worth against MLS and USL clubs. But what does this mean for the CanPL? Is it the beginning of something special, or just a flash in the pan?

    • He is on loan to the Impact to December 31st, so he has no where to play from early October to end of December if I understand the transfer/loan rules correctly.  If so not a great move for him.
    • If a professional sports team is a paying tenant at a stadium, I would hope it would get priority over a semi- or non-professional team. I recognize that IG Field is a U of M facility though, so I can see how it might be more complicated with their university football team. Still, the pointy ball teams using the facility have a reasonable expectation that their needs and conditions will be met. Valour should expect the same and then some. What happened on Saturday is completely unacceptable. 
    • if he commits to Trinidad, canada will lose a good option for call up
    • I thought Hernandez was playing CB? 
    • He is the #3 LB behind Alaba(top class) & Hernandez (France starter in WC) now.  I could even see them shifting him to RW, what helps is he has the ability to play either wing.  I found his game was becoming incredibly polished at Bayern and much improved. I don't mind the incredible training and development he is getting there. Depending how the fall goes I could see a 6 month loan in January for minutes, but even that I'm not sure.  Renato Sanches publicly stated he wants out, that frees up some space for him if it happens. At the same time even if a January transfer does not happen, oh well. As @Obinna mentioned in the Davies thread, don't forget Davies age. He is on pace to potentially have 50 caps by the age of 20 for a top club in the world, wow. At this point I have my faith and trust in Bayern for his long term development.  My bad to derail thread, 100% Adekugbe should be brought in for Cuba window.
    • I doubt Davies will get much PT at LW. Bayern just added Perisic and Coutinho. Davies will probably backup LB. 
    • Worth mentioning that he's Valerenga's #1 LB No reason he doesn't start as LB which should push Davies at LW
    • The center halfs got savaged last match.  Point blank, this bunch need to be reinfored, especially on the outside which means the decision making by the backs for when they join an attack or go on a raid that much more important.  And boy was that wanting on Saturday.  Really puts you in it when there's a shock turn-over and a direct counter like on Novak's 1st goal. Just about everyone is playing scared out there.  
    • If you take your chances and score the goals you're supposed to score along with a few crackers from both feet, you are easily a regular player in a top 5 league I stream a lot of Lille matches and they recently sold a 20 year old Portuguese striker to AC Milan for 38M euros and David is a better player in my opinion. The player, Leao, scored 8 goals in his first season with Lille and has size over David but that's about it.    
    • There is also Clear Lake in Riding Mountain National Park which is a 3 hr drive to the West.  Pembina Valley to the Southwest as well.
