Players you expect to see in the CPL

He’s made it no secret that he’d like to play in @CPLsoccer again.....Just anywhere but Valour..

Might not be a bad shout for his return though. They have plenty of midfield options but most are attacking. Following LBG to Halifax  or even a Pacific trip might be a possibility too. 

No offense to Sacramento but he shouldn’t be welcome back to valour just like the rest of the players they released. If he can’t make it in NZ or Ireland he’s not that big of a player.

I really hope Valour aren't making decisions out of spite like an ex gf/bf. They should be making player decisions strictly based on benefit to the team. Now if the player has no interest in staying there more than a year I can see them passing on him because of that.

I don’t think it’s spite, you don’t have a culture around a team like they had last year. No need to bring back players who are not at a professional level. Or acted in an appropriate manner

I hear Hume was spotted buying a new pair of wellies.  He may be coming back to go lobster fishing.   Seriously a guy like that could be a player/assistant coach in about 5min.  I hope he brings his hairdryer.

Are we seriously worried about Humey's hair getting wet?

Ian Hume confirmed in an interview today he's moving back to Canada. Sounds like CPL bound to me.

Surprised after all these years over there that he’d uproot the fam. Agreed, he must be taking some kind of soccer job over here.

As someone who was quite recently resident in the UK, I'd suggest that now would be the perfect time to jump ship, for those lucky enough to have options.

I get the feeling he could have taken a job with Onesoccer.  Just MHO.

He is much more interesting to listen to than Ollie or Larsson.  He prob wouldnt be as big a homer as Dunfield and Wheels.  I still hope its a playing gig, with an eye to coaching the next generation.

Didn't think of that, he interviews really well. It would be great to see him get a season or 2 in, and then move on to coaching or broadcasting.

There are so many really good/decent players out there that don’t have clubs. I love to see the CPL, specially Ottawa go after some of them. Yes some names are too good/expensive but we can dream lol. These players could really bring up level of play of the CPL and experience.

Only if he's not considered a domestic player.

I can’t see why he wouldn’t be ? There’s a few Canadian players that represent other countries that play in the CPL and are considered domestic like Ryan Telfer

I wouldn't be surprised to see teams not meet the roster limit or fill the salary cap for a 7 game season. We may see some more players without much professional experience get a look to fill the rosters out. I'd be fine with that.

Ryan James won USL player of the week.  Playing some midfield as well for Pittsburgh, scoring 2 last week.  If he doesnt get papers to stay in USL he would fit nicely onto a CPL squad.  Funny that Skylar Thomas slipped right back into the USL and is starting every week for a good Riverhound team.  Maybe it was something in the Winnipeg water.

I think Valour should go after Alessandro Busti, who I don't think is even playing professionally in Italy anymore in Serie D.

Someone needs to twitter Rob Gale 😆
