Vic Posted May 9, 2011 Share Posted May 9, 2011 Time for some public awareness from everyone and anyone. Victoria Highlanders FC owner Alex Campbell, whose club plays in the U.S.-based Premier Development League, feels there aren’t enough talented Canadian players to fill out the rosters of a new national league. “It would either be a poor-quality league or a league that uses mostly imports — and where’s the player development in that?” he said. “So trying to go it alone with no high-quality players is insane. That’s the word I’d use. It’s nuts.” Last results of all our teams against the almighty: MEN 1-2 2007 (in USA) MEN U20 0-2 2010 (in USA) MEN U17 0-3 2011 (neutral ground - CONCACAF final) WOMEN 1-2 2007 (neutral ground) WOMEN U20 0-1 2002 AET (home) WOMENS U17 1-0 2010 PKs (neutral ground) For a country that has no talented or high-quality players, we do ok. Vancouver Whitecaps president Bob Lenarduzzi said that in a perfect world, the concept of a Canadian soccer league is “wonderful.” “But unless they have a plan,” he said, “it seems ludicrous to stop teams from playing (in U.S. leagues). As long as players are playing at a good level, does it matter whether they’re playing in a Canadian league or a North American league?” The answer in every single country in the world is yes.
