    Purple Reign Podcast E2: Interview with Rob Friend and PFC vs York9 Recap


    The Purple Reign Podcast is a collaboration between Maxwell Mowbray (PFCOntario) and Xav Ouellette (The Hydro Pole). With both hosts building a presence on Twitter, they have decided to take on the world of podcasting. Together these two Pacific FC fans created a one-stop podcast for all things Pacific FC. Despite the hosts being 3300 KM apart, Maxwell and Xav will bring you all the latest news, rumours and discussion regarding VanIsle football.

    The second episode of the Purple Reign Podcast includes:

    • A discussion on the 2-2 draw at the Pacific FC vs York9 FC match on May 18th, 2019.
    • An interview with Pacific FC CEO/Co-Owner/Sporting Director Rob Friend. This interview will include topics such as building Pacific FC, the emphasis on youth players at PFC, the lack of CanPL players on the Canada 40-man Gold Cup roster, and CanPL expansion.
    • A quick discussion on our new signing, Alexander “Makelele” Gonzalez.

    • With Lensky bringing them up room service.
    • Shhhh, dont spread this around.  I dont want CPL to copy it, Ie Roberts, Welshman etc etc count as CDN for roster purposes but not for CMNT.  I especially dont want them to copy the MLS/green card makes you domestic kind of thing here.  Come to think of it, I dont want the CPL to copy almost anything MLS has done, other than expand and stay afloat.  
    • Robinson would routinely play 4 or 5 kids at a time (and Bustos out of position) with secondary/bench players, then complain that they "didn't show enough".  Compare that to Davies and now Bair - kids given the chance to play with basically the regular rotation, and actually developing from it. Adegkube to me is actually the most interesting case out of all of them.  He actually outplayed Harvey to start a season, looked pretty good in 5 or 6 starts, then got injured.  When he returned from injury, he never played again.  Rumours swirled it was because of "attitude/entitlement" issues, but it's honestly hard to figure out which came first: did he not play because of "attitude" or did he develop an "attitude" because he'd shown he could play but wasn't given the chance again?
    • Wow, if OneSoccer gets it, they'll have cornered the Spanish speaking football market in terms of the 2 major leagues, South American cup competitions and WC qualifying. Their football offering will be on par or very close with DAZN. Good news for CPL also. Will get base that typically doesn't follow MLS and Canadian national teams. Unless DAZN is overpaying for BeIN, everything else points to being on OneSoccer as the best synergyistic option.
    • I just noticed that today.. big Libertadores and Sudamericana tilts this week. Super pissed.  Here's hoping Onesoccer swoops in
    • Do you see Mediapro gets their hands on it via Onesoccer?
    • DAZN doesn't have BeIN sports anymore. Either a dispute with them or something else? No advance notice, just disappeared today. Confirmed loss by DAZN on twitter but no reason given. Apparently, it happened last year also. So, gone are 2 of the top 5 leagues, Libertadores & WC qualifying from 2 regions. Growing pains for sports streaming services as I don't know of a single one that is performing on par with a tv sports network (even the streaming services of the tv sports networks have all kinds of issues).      
    • Big difference is percentage of eligible players for national team..portland has the 8 international slots filled in the 27 man roster but also asprilla blanco cascante chara dielna mabiala valeri tuiloma flores jadama dont count as internationals so 18 of 27 are not eligible (or seems so) for usa
