1000 Mins - U21 Players - 2019

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I think it makes sense to have a separate thread for each team.

This is to keep track of mins played by U21 Canadians, who must play a combined total of 1,000 minutes for each team (presumably in CPL league matches) each season. That works out to an average of 35.72 mins per match.

For the 2019 season, players born in 1998 or later are considered to be U21.

Valour FC's U21 Canadians are:

Tyler Attardo (2001)

Raphaël Garcia (1999)

Glenn Muenkat (1999)

Federico Peña (1999)

NOTE: If you come on after 80 mins and there are 3 mins of stoppage time, did you play 10 mins or 13 mins? I'm going to assume the former but it really should be the latter.

No need for one for each team..not complicated not so many u21s playing and not so much to talk about

Think edmonton and calgary are at 0, pacific is almost there, halifax and york about 40%, forge 15%

I definitely agree that we could probably make this a single thread for all teams, or keep track in each teams season thread.

FC Edmonton- 0 minutes

Cavalry FC- 0 minutes

Pacific FC- Chung- 180, Baldisimo- 162, Legault- 90, Campbell- 128, N. Verhoeven- 180, Hernandez- 102, Al Ghamdi- 4, Z. Verhoven- 13... for a total of 859 minutes. Pacific will almost certainly clear the limit in three games. 

HFX Wanderers- N'Sa- 180, Langwa- 180, Firth 21, Skublak- 60... for a total of 441 minutes. Halifax is also in good shape, and despite the fact I have not liked their general lack of Canadians compared to the rest of the league, they have given two young Canadian defenders minutes. 

York 9 FC- Furlano- 83, Estevez- 90, Abzi- 49, Rollocks- 180... for a total of 402 minutes. York is also in great shape early. 

Forge FC- Borges- 121, Zajac- 19... Total of 140 minutes. 

Valour FC- Attardo- 26. Total 26.

 

League Rankings so far:

Pacific-859

HFX- 441

York- 402

Forge FC- 140

Valour- 26

Cavalry/Edmonton- 0

 

We can definitely see the different approaches. 1000 minutes total is really not a difficult number to reach, but I would certainly rather make a good start on it early. I don't know what the consequences would be for not meeting it, but you still do not want to get to a point where an injury one or two puts you in a position where you have to play a certain player. Cavalry and Edmonton both have only three eligible players, so hopefully next game they get started on getting thise minutes.

PFC definitely seems to have set a much higher bar then the average team. 

And I think it may be a bit too low actually. As even at only 92 minutes in three games, Valour can still make it relatively comfortably. 

92 X 9 (based on 92 minutes/3 games into 27 games) = 828. They would still have one game left to get the remaining minutes, and they really only need one or two full games from a u21 player and suddenly they would be well on the way.

I mean Pacific is going all-out on kids; they're exceptional by any standard in that respect. This is a professional first division and we shouldn't get out-of-hand making it purely developmental. 

1,000 minutes might be a conservative boundary, but in the first year you should be conservative.

Pacific FC is well past 1,000 minutes after only 3 games. Did they set the limit too low?

i don't think so. hernandez and legault aside, those guys had a combined 150~ professional appearances in usl under their belts. the rule was at least partly designed for the guys coming in from l1o and usports rather than them, so i see them as an exception.

i think only one other team is over 500 minutes at the moment while some are still well under 200.
