    • There's still a lot of games so not everything is riding on that first match. 
    • Not sure if that's the case or that he himself doesn't want to leave. They've been trying him at RB during the winterbreak. We'll see tomorrow if he's in the squad.
    • Still on contract at FC Midtjylland. Nobody seems to want to have him on loan. Anybody know any details? A MLS/USL/CanPL loan might not be a bad idea.
    • Just finished watching the reply on Sportsnet. Yes, not his best game but definitely not a bad game from him. I agree he didn't have the same desire on the defensive end, but the game was won 12 minutes in and he is probably playing on a tapped ankle. Not an excuse but I think those factors must be mentioned. Alaba and Boetang and on occasion Pavard got into a few tangly situations as well, but the game was wide open and free flowing. I expect the whole team to be tighter in Champions League.
    • Jonathan Viscosi played in a friendly against CSKA Moscow for Sirius on Saturday, ended a 2-0 loss. Pretty good test for him
    • I find it very tough to get any kind of squad info on pre-2nd-half-of-the-season-friendlies; I wonder how he has done over the past month? Competitive games start up again on Friday for Scott; it will be one of the most important games of the season since it's against their rival for that one promotion spot (SV Guntamatic Ried)! If they lose that game on Friday, it becomes an uphill battle. http://www.2liga.at/2liga/spielplan/
    • Who knows who they will call for centre-backs for the U23 team? 20 years old? Was he born in 2000? 2001? If he is a 2001, it will give him a chance with the U20 team as well.
    • Bumping this thread. Based on nothing more than getting a few minutes of time in the Whitecaps pre-season game vs Portland today, Metcalfe could be an interesting player to watch. Shows some physical play in central mid and is not easily knocked off the ball. Given how thin the Caps are in midfield, he could work his way into the picture. 
    • Toronto will be interesting as I am sure at some point, I can almost guarantee that a group will emerge thinking they can make a go of it in Toronto proper. The CPL will have to be smart on this front as group without the resources, expertise etc could be a disaster regardless of their finances. Soccer is filled with fly by night, under financed owner types. also Toronto is already filled with sports and entertainment. The Wolfpack are the perfect example of a team that has found its niche and have done quite well early on with their attendance with a sport in rugby league that was complete unknown in this country. So much is going on in the summers and as I always say the under estimated competition of the cottage and the power it has with our relative short summers. 
    • At 27 points behind us, it would take an epic losing streak on our part against several minnows and an epic winning streak against many top teams for them to catch us. Panama is not relevant. Curaçao is not relevant. It is us or (likely) El Salvador. Panama will play Nicaragua on February 25th: http://twitter.com/Fenifutnica/status/1229065697541709830 Panama will play Guatemala on March 4th:  http://www.fepafut.com/noticias/3858/panama-jugara-ante-guatemala-a-inicios-de-marzo an yes, Panama will play El Salvador on March 27th (the same night we play T&T): http://www.fepafut.com/noticias/3932/panama-jugara-ante-su-similar-de-el-salvador-el-proximo-27-de-marzo That last game is hugely important for us. Although both teams don't look like they have any big young names right now, Panama can be at full strength. Like us, El Salvador has to field at U23 squad for Olympic qualifying.
