    French Canada wants in (the CanP)

    Duane Rollins

    On today's SoccerToday Kevin and Duane talked at length about the positive impact of CanPL so far.

    They also talked about one major failing -- the lack of French content on the official webpage and app. This needs to be addressed.

    From Sports Podcasting Network: 



    Le soccer canadien connait un essor inégalé en ce moment avec le début de la Première Ligue Canadienne et la présence de l'équipe nationale féminine à la Coupe Du Monde France 2019.

    Je dois par contre souligner le manque de contenu francophone, autant sur le site fr.canpl.ca que sur le site et les productions de OneSoccer. Il est important en ce temps de développement de cette nouvelle ligue pancanadienne de ne pas oublier la deuxième province au niveau de la population au pays et aussi les centaines de milliers de francophones partout au pays.

    Canadian soccer is experiencing an unrivaled growth in this country with the beginning of the Canadian Premier League and the presence of Canada at the France 2019 World Cup. Unfortunately, I have to point out the lack of french content on the league's website and also on the OneSoccer platform.

    It is imperative, in this time of development of the new standard bearer of the beautiful game in Canada, that we do not forget the second biggest province in population and also the hundreds of thousands of french speaking fans from coast-to-coast.

    I look at my old Nordiques sweaters everyday and cry.  The atmosphere in the stands would be amazing once that rivalry gets going.

    I absolutely adored them too. From Goulet to Stastnys to my favourite period with Joe Sakic and co.

    My favourite era was the Stastny era, when I first really discovered the Nordiques.

    Two years ago, my wife and I went to Quebec for our anniversary.  We stayed a couple of nights at a hotel in Levis.  I knew who was running the place by the name, but as soon as I saw Marion Stastny sitting behind the front desk, I knew who he was immediately.  He was a very friendly, humble guy, but spoke French with a Slovakian accent.

    • All the banning talk and everything doesn’t matter to me, I don’t think anyone needs to be banned unless they discriminate, threaten or borderline do something criminal. I was hoping to give him some advice that’s it.    We should call in jakovic. I didn’t see him play last night but it sounds like he was solid. To be honest I’m not a fan of Henry at all. Call in Vitoria, Cornelius and jakovic, but that’s just me.
    • Then they'd better step it up and earn their spots
    • That's crazy. Pacific are still a young team. This rule could result in a lot of players being forced out of the league. 
    • I mean to have a break out season
    • With respect, this is demonstrably not true.  David has got much better since I have been watching him in the Belgian league and they have very few top players. I can say the same thing about Larin this year, who is further down the development path.  There is a lot to be said for stability, especially playing with an offensive-minded team and getting games in Europe.  If the right situation comes along, with a team with a pedigree of developing and most importantly playing young players, he should consider and probably take it.  But I have seen many players from Belgian-like leagues with huge numbers do nothing in the Premier League, halting their development, no matter who they are training with.  I want the best for him, long term, playing for Canada and that does not always mean going to the biggest club or league right away or becoming some nomad, like so many of our players have. I don't think that is selling him short.  He is one of my favourite players right now and I love watching him play.  Let the Americans boast about how many players they have in the top whatever leagues, as long as we do better than them in 6 years (my realistic plan), I don't care.  
    • a cb getting regular minutes at mls level should be called..just too weak currently at that position
    • Did anyone watch LA last night in Champions League? They lost 2-0 but Jakovic was, for the most part, solid in his performance away to Liga MX side Leon.  We know CB is not our strongest spot, so does Dejan deserve to be in the conversation, or do you need to see more to be convinced? It was said pre-match that he's had a good pre-season and he was trusted in the 2019 MLS Cup playoffs... I have noticed that Vitoria has been left on the bench recently for Moreirense. Should Jakovic be rotated in? Perhaps to give Vitoria the chance to win back his club spot? Or, do we bring him in and free up Cornelius to play in the Olympic qualifiers? To early to have this talk?  (Beats talking about Robert being banned though...)
    • He did not get banned for his views on the CSA, or anything else for that matter. He got banned for completely random and unprovoked harassment of one of the very few female posters here. I seriously wondered whether he had lost his marbles. A mod stated the ban was permanent. If it has now been lifted then why does he need a new login name? And if it hasn't been lifted then why is it not being enforced? I'm certainly not in favour of banning people lightly or because of their views but in this case I thought the permanent ban was appropriate.
    • That is incorrect, with 8 clubs we get 1 spot, just like Belize, with 10 we would get 2, just like Nicaragua, and with 12 we would get 3, just like the other Central American leagues. The only exception is Honduras who get 3 spots with 10 clubs, but they're indisputably one of the top countries in CONCACAF League, while the CPL brand-new and has yet to make any real waves in the competition.
