    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.

    • QFT I still enjoyed it....even if I needed a hot beverage to keep warm.  
    • Got the start in a friendly against Herta Berlin. Played the full 90. Made some good saves, but probably should have done better in the goal. Has also been on the bench for the past two league games. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/05/23/minnesota-united-0-hertha-berlin-1-first-international-match-allianz
    • Nice. I too try to fit in a long ride on the weekends at a few shorter ones during the week. I also have ridden to most events I've attended at the stadium and hopefully will do a few times this year, but it's not the nicest nor most intense riding. Make sure to check the wind forecast! If you've never ridden out that way, Hwy 26 (through St Francis Xavier) adds about 10km compared to the #1 but is much less stressful. Expected news, but still bad. Valour's midfield looks even smaller (stature-wise) now, and this is a problem in a league that permits a lot of physical play.
    • Liga MX is higher level than the Belgian League, If it were Erevidise then it would be similar level. Plus Cavallni is ripping it up and so is David! Great problem to have, Jonathan is much younger and has had a better NT start, but Lucas has that 8 seasons as pro 
    • All the sound files from the post game press conference.  http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports19/19york099.htm   York 9 head coach Jimmy Brennan, then Ryan Telfer, then Blainville head coach Emmanuel Macagno with midfielder Wandrill Lefevre, then York 9's Luca Gasparotto.   I'm working on some stadium pictures and my game report which I'll just keep amending this post.

    • He can still keep it simple, break up plays, play 1 2s but i noticed people played balls in to space and his first step wasnt there.  On the flip side do we really need him to beat Martinique and Cuba? Why not create a lineup and shape with an eye on the future and playing on the front foot
    • bicycle, but just one way.  It's 85 km and I usually try to ride 60-80 km on a Saturday, or ride 30-40 km and run 10 km.  The Valour Saturday games over the last couple of weeks have gotten in the way of my Saturday workout, so I'm looking forward to combining Valour and my workout 
    • I'm with you on the MAK at left back thing, but David hasn't done anything to suggest he's a defensive liability, which is how your comment came off to me. Thanks for clearing that up. I don't love that Kaye is projected as the starting LB, but it is what it is. I would rather he play in the midfield, but he is a better player than Adekugbe at that spot, so I get it. As for David, I don't see him switching to CAM at this point. 
    • It runs me the wrong way when someone thinks David wont be starting.  He led a decent team in Belgium in scoring.  He scored 4 goals in 4 games for Canada.  He can play up top as a CAM or as a second striker.  He starts over Cavalinni if he has to play up top.
