    • ^This... There's absolutely no shame in not being able to break into what is without question one of the top 5 best club sides in the world today, particularly for a 20-year old. Let's be real...Shaqiri, Origi, Minamino, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain...all experienced internationals who have trouble getting regular games at Liverpool. Liam needs to be taking the opportunity to learn all that he can in the privileged environment he's in and be ready to grab his chance on loan, when it comes. We can't forget the lessons of Terry Dunfield. Was a promising young player poised to make his breakthrough at (pre-Abu Dhabi) Man City. He got ahead of himself, made demands beyond his reasonable station, and ended up banished. Liam needs to be patient and listen to the right people, and just be ready.
    • 1000s of people die everyday all the time. It's just a new phenomenon that we've turned in to perverts and have decided to count them everyday and obsess over it as we eat our morning cheerios. How many 87 year olds died today? Sounds like a healthy society 
    • I hope so. Also, I wonder how long our clubs can remain operational without ticket revenue. Is that not a significant income stream for any club, MLS, CanPL or otherwise? Luckily, the Canadian Premier League has a 10-year deal with Media Pro that injects significant money, I think, while Toronto FC are pretty flush with resources. Vancouver and Montreal will probably be alright too, but I do wonder how long they'd be willing to sustain loses. The losses must be significant, no?
    • Like physically bar people in their homes, leaving them to starve. Look, my point was that attitudes shape policy, and a shift in attitude will be required for Canada to relax entry rules. You want to deny the political nature of the situation? That's fine by me. Substitute it with "positive vaccine news" if that's suits you. Either way, the point was that a shift in attitude will be required to ease tensions regarding Canadian entry rules. Ideally, an attitude shift will come from a significant drop in cases, but I doubt we will hear such news before the elections.
    • That was my thought.. if the ball didn't hit his arm there is no way it would go in that direction 
    • I re-watched the video of the handball on One Soccer's twitter page like 50 times and it is 100% a handball. If you look at the final spin and direction of the ball, it has a backspin and has a downward trajectory - the pure physics of which means it must have hit a surface much more parallel to the ground, like an outstretched arm, rather than a perpendicular surface like the side of his body. Had it not have hit his arm, the ball would have bounced back away from Forge goal rather than bounce towards the ground. Great call Mr. Referee!
    • Relatively speaking, that's a short term concern.  Unless you're also saying "Well, all the CPL teams are going to lose money this year.  Time to fold the league."
    • I might have posted this before but I feel like some people have this "Liverpool or bust" mindset sometimes. I'm not completely ruling out the possibility of him becoming a regular but obviously it's going to be hard, it's not the end of the world if he doesn't break into the first team. If Liam goes to another team in the premier league, that's still huge for the national team. The fact that he hasn't gotten to play since earlier this year hasn't helped with detractors, until he gets his loan (hopefully to Swansea) he hasn't had a chance to prove anyone wrong. That's a bit of a tough situation, if I was Liam I'd probably want to be playing asap after the loan ended and the pandemic kinda ruined that. It's not fair to judge him on just goals/assists for a low scoring team like Kilmarnock, let's see how he does the second time around. 
    • I'm not still bitter, or anything, but were it not for a Dasovic OG and the most-woeful set of penalty taking ever, we'd have had Maradona play a competitive match on Canadian soil back in '93. 😭
    • Because they are separated by an international border.  The value in being in 3 major markets in another country is being undermined by the current logistical challenges. I hope they can figure it out but right now I am not optimistic, as there is no clear end in sight.
