Julian's younger bros. Luca (2004) is the one who won the Feyenoord and Barcelona ID camps back in 2014.

Yup. Julian is a very good prospect in his own right, but Luca is...special. He's a spitting image of Andrew Carleton, for those fimilar with American prospects. As good a passer as you'll ever find for a u14 player and beats kids 1v1 with skill rather than pace.

I'm contemplating on whether this guy is even more dumb than the idiot from vancouver 

Not fair.

That guy was a grade A *******.

This person clearly is not.

OZ I believe 

Really kinda surprised about that. He can't coach all the teams maybe he'll get a staff together for each levels. He can teach his philosophy to them and they'll have to work on it with youth teams and such. Well OZ is really putting in the work if it's him coaching U-15.

Any players to watch in the Canada Games for Men Soccer?

Canada Games Men Tourney...

David Chung on AB is a player some are excited about. The BC team includes a few former Whitecaps youth players like Aaron Mulama. Mihai Hodut is a number 10 at UBC that will likely transfer to a D1 NCAA team next year.

Well in my view I believe some if not most of these players can and will become part of the CPL.... In the long run helping create depth for CMNT in the future.

 Which hopefully will open the season next year after WC.

Emmanuel Dolo from Newfoundland. Spent time in the Ottawa Fury academy before it shut down. One of the top scorers this season in the Newfoundland Challenge Cup. Has scored at ridiculous levels at every Club Nationals he's played at. Was involved in a couple of U-15 national ID camps a few years back.

He came to Newfoundland from Liberia I believe, as a 10 or 11 year old.

My (guitar) student Adam Benmousa is on the Quebec team who play in half an hour. I have never seen him play but it was interesting to follow his reports about trying out for the Quebec team, the friendlies they played, games he felt he played well or poorly in and then him finally being selected to the team. Unfortunately because of my teaching schedule I am probably going to miss most of the game tonight  (can watch about 30 minutes) and the other ones but it is really good that they are broadcasting them all.

Well I hope all these players have great tourney. When CPL does launch it will be a helpful situation for all these future players. Still a bit shocked at no second game next month hope this to be the last time and could be because OZ is going to coach U-15. If that's the reason OZ/CSA will have to put coaches and staff at all youth levels. It is a bit annoying for Canada to not get more games and it is not an excuse about other countries not wanting to play Canada. They can get a team to play just got make it happen.

Games against Jamaica and El Salvalor in Sept and Oct respectively. However why only one game when two could be played this is a must in my opinion. Two games during the FIFA dates, I know they can make it happen and it should be done.

I've never understood this mentality. I'm completely okay with 1 game per break and more time on the practice pitch, especially when we have a coach who's been in charge for less than a year. Missing out completely of FIFA dates is infuriating but there's no irrafutable evidence that 2 games is better than 1.

Well I believe more game time is better compared to more training. Even if its a friendly teams want to win and this will help push the team chemistry plus more real game time gives us more chances to see players play international games. Coach can which players will be able to hang in the international games. More test against different team is better than having more practice.

How come we are one of the few teams in the world that actually does this then? One of the reasons teams like Honduras, Panama, and TnT perform so well compared to us even though we arguably have a better squad is they play. These teams play at least 10-15 games a year and a good chunk of those are friendlies. They play these games and make their players gain chemistry, something our team has been lacking for years.

We have arguably the 4th best player pool in Concacaf but, our players never play enough together because A) We are too nice and want our A team players to miss all of our friendlies as we want their club careers to "flourish by avoiding international obligations" and B ) We don't play enough games a year. When the time comes for our A team to actually perform in WCQs and the Gold Cup they **** the bed because that is the first freaking game they played together all year

@canta15 yes correct...

Playing more games is more valuable compared to training. It is the most important thing for CSA to get correct more games against any opponents for CMNT players to play against to see where they stand and sometime surprise wins against  a top team will occur at home or away. Just more games is needed....

Well if we do end up playing EL Salvador in Oct, and get 1 more game in the Nov window, that will be 10 games for 2017. I would like to think CSA are doing what they can, and if OZ or Floro before him wanted 2 games per break they would be playing 2 per break.  

I do think we need more games to play the system a bit and manipulate the Fifa rankings (has been discussed elsewhere).  The 5 games we played in 2014 (a low fifa point year) will be coming off the rankings, and if we can get more games/positive results we can keep our ranking going up which will give us better seeds for next WCQ etc.
