    Tactical Analysis: Forge FC vs York 9 FC


    April 27th, 2019 was a day for all of us Canadian soccer fans to remember for a long, long time. Our wildest dreams came to fruition at Tim Hortons field, where Forge FC took on York 9 FC in the inaugural Canadian Premier League match. While the event was very much a celebration all-round, we all know that the Canadian Premier League has been split up into 2 seasons, and with this first Spring season lasting just 10 matches, this was a rather important match for both teams – not just a soccer celebration.

    I don't see why this can't be on the game thread, frankly. Are you going to post a separate thread for every one of the 98 games in the season just to promote your site? As if it were not the only media channel covering the event.

    Sorry, did not differentiate between who was posting what article on the site or elsewhere.

    We could turn it off.

    However, some sites have no commenting ability and, rightfully, don't want to deal with the ensuing ******** and spam.

    I have no criteria as to how this new site should work best, that is for you and the media channels to decide.

    I'm just a forum buff as you know.

    They should not be a significant % of the threads created and they are held in one forum. 

    They will appear in Fluid View or Activity Stream though. 

    If it gets to be a PITA we can change it.

    I was asked to start posting links to NSXI's articles in the article section. I find it pretty strange that there would also be forum thread automatically created for each article posted, but that's how it's currently setup. Generally, we don't do too many match reports on NSXI, as we prefer to focus on interviews & storylines, so I don't think there will be 98 of these tactical analysis... I do anticipate a large number of posts (there are almost 2-dozen contributors after all).

    I like having it show up in the activity stream, but perhaps having it create a forum post directly is not ideal. Only a few sites are currently testing it out, and with a high-activity site like NSXI, this could quickly cause issues and potentially overpower the proper posts in the forum (not to mention hide articles coming in from elsewhere)...

    Perhaps I should develop a "newletter" style of post, to highlight "all" of NSXI's headlines over the week? It could look decent, but then title of the post wouldn't be beneficial & the content wouldn't be timely.

    Thoughts?

    Let's leave it as it is for now.

    It may be possible to remove a single forum from the Activity stream if it gets to be too much, but it would defeat the purpose of it. 

    We can try different things. 

    I am setting up a point system and raffle contest thing shortly.   People will get points for participation on the site and we will have weekly/monthly draws.    To encourage people to use the article stream I was thinking of awarding higher points for reading the articles and posting in the comments threads. 

    The goal is to drive traffic, and it will increase over the next year.

    It was explained to me, I understand why it happens. I am fine if it is how the board will work. 

    I just think, as a basic principle, that we should try to consolidate threads as much as possible.

    • Call up our best players available. Period. Whether they're in Europe, North America, Africa... wherever.  I do understand this is only possible if the tournament happens during a FIFA date. Which we can only hope for considering its an 8 team qualification. 
    • Just saw the Thomas goal on the Sports hilight show, right after Whitecaps match hilights
    • As long as these kind of kids are found and not missed by a pro club we’re trending in the right direction.
    • It’s pretty disgusting like we talk about missing guys well let’s be real here we probably have 5-6 guys across the country at least who are being left out because they are at the academy. No way do those 3 teams carry our best 30 players.
    • And the MLS teams are now all in USSDA leagues, which means it will make it even harder (at least in Ontario, it's already been like this for years for Montreal and Vancouver) to compare players from outside the MLS academies to those that aren't in academy setups. Hopefully CPL can one day rectify this "3 team all-star team" problem by at the very least getting more academy systems out there and greatly increase the geographical footprint of pro academy set ups. Maybe the CSA would be comfortable with at least scouting those teams as well. Plus, with CPL teams actually playing Canadian players in large numbers, it might be more attractive to some players than MLS academies, so you might not get cases of players avoiding them when they already live in the area.
    • The weather explanation for low attendance is closely tied to the fact that the fan base for these teams is still relatively small and the importance of the games is not yet felt to the degree it is for other more established teams/leagues. It's not yet "can't miss" for most people. From reading these boards it sounds like if the game isn't being played in a temperature range of between 22 and 28 degrees with clear skies, and not at the same time as another sporting event, and not at the right time of day or the right day of the week, that makes it perfectly fine that attendance is small. I don't think, say, NFL teams or EPL teams have those same constraints. My thoughts have always been that the attendance is what it is in year 1. It sets the bar and we hope it improves (but it's very possible attendance will dip after year 1, like we saw with MLS, after the novelty factor wears off).
    • Friendly Arfield starts for Rangers against Blackburn, Leutwiler starts on the otherside  Scotland Wotherspoon starts for St. Johnstone against Ross County, Harry Paton is in the Ross County bench
    • I hadn't heard of him before this morning, but according to this he is a midfielder. https://www.ottawafuryfc.com/antoine-coupland
    • I voted York 9 for empty seats, and running track keeping fans away. I didn't really factor this in, but the fact it's a smaller field sort of plays into a negative experience too. I haven't watched a ton of Pacific home games, but the angle hasn't bothered me too much, and I like how close the crowd is to the field.
    • I don't know how this doesn't count as "fact", but it seems like either everyone here disregarded this or didn't see it. Maybe they had BBTB blocked a year ago when this article came out. This is the article he is referring to, and the relevant part is a quote from someone who says they have spoken with the CPL on this. https://lfpress.com/sports/soccer/will-london-build-a-downtown-sports-stadium-its-a-possibility “There was the franchise fee, which is in the millions. Then there was the expectation that there would be money lost in the first few years,” Campbell said.
