General Discussion on CMNT

Really wondering when we’ll see Okello and Colyn.

Okello especially... CMNT call up and homegrown POTM. Not a great TFC side so it should be very soon.  If he doesn’t play against Ottawa I’ll seriously question what the hell is going on.

Who else do you think TFC might debut??  They only need 3 CDN starters right??  Probably Fraser, Chapman and Morgan.  But it would be nice to see Perruza, Okello or even Nelson come join the party.  Put them into Herdmans head for the U-23's at least.

What's Colyn done at senior level that warrants a call up?  Why not bring back Verhoeven from CPL?  At least he was brought in for the Gold Cup squad training sessions (or was that just a PR thing?).  Colyn can't get into a lousy Whitecaps game day squad  (though Felipe's gone from the midfield, so maybe that changes for him and Baldisimo as the season works towards it's conclusion).

He's 17 and is one of the whtiecaps highly rated prospects. The fact he isn't in the senior team every week doesn't really show anything about the quality of player he is.

His U23 coach for the Caps likes his talent and potential, too, but is on the record as saying that he's not physically ready for the senior club team.  So why bring him up to the senior NT?  Like everyone else, he needs to earn his call up through performance at senior level.  His time will come, hopefully.

Would explain why he’s not playing.

that is consistent with how he played for the U17s in Concacaf WC qualifying. Hopefully he can get stronger in the next year.

Pretty crazy day in the battle for the last playoff spot in the east. With the Montreal, Toronto, and Orlando games all having a stoppage time goal to result in a draw. In terms of Canadians, Orlando started more (2-1) and gave more minutes (195-183) to Canadians than Montreal and Toronto combined.

On the extreme other end of the spectrum today's match between York and Pacific 28 of 34 players dressed were Canadian.

Does Trinidad have more money than us? Why is a camp like this not possible. This would be a great look for the CPL guys/CPL in general mixed in with a USL guys and fringe MLsers.

I feel like we're missing out on gems due to the lack of these type of camps other nations do.

CSA has more money than Trinidad but also more programs to fund and more costs.  We also don't prioritize the Men's program like other federations do.  Thus we lag behind far poorer nations in Concacaf in terms of camps, friendlies, and staff budgets.

I don't buy it.

We also have a lot more programs that are at cost to attend. Maybe I'm ignorant to the "goings" but I know the soccer cummunity collectively puts a lot of money towards the game - whether it's teams, coaching programs, referring programs, etc list goes on. 

Something isn't adding up or I want a job at the CSA.

At the moment most of the teams in CONCACAF are at least playing two games in 2/3 of the upcoming international windows (Sep/Oct/Nov). Canada is only playing two on one of them (Sep), and it's forced. 

This team hasn't played a friendly since March 2018. What a ******* joke.

Yes, something doesn’t add up indeed. For years we have been asking this same question: how do modest Caribbean nations manage to play more than us?

To play devil’s advocate, the team is in the best shape in years. We are churning out players now compared to years past. Perhaps all that investment in LTPD and the like is paying off.

Or maybe Canada has an increasing population, which is immigrant heavy and driving this surge in talent we are seeing? Certainly the amount of credit to give the CSA is up for debate, isn’t it?

Can’t forget the growth spurred by MLS and now CPL. Can’t really credit the CSA much for that, can we?

 FYI

CNL multiplier will be (X25) instead of (X15)
For the FIFA Men’s World Ranking, all 2019-2020 Concacaf Nations League matches will be granted a coefficient score which corresponds to qualification matches to a Confederations final competition, rather than friendly international matches played during FIFA International Match Calendar window.

Changing course here but this is probably one of the few places on earth that we can't watch our national team play on TV but we can see the likes of Serbia, Albania etc. Sad.

Agreed.  How many soccer fans are going to get One Soccer to watch Canada's MNT when they already have TSN & SN?  And at the same time FC Cincinnati are playing TFC...don't get me started on MLS's playing during FIFA international windows.

TSN must be pulling something.  I don’t believe that they are giving that much coverage to CMNT out of the goodness of their hearts.
