Top 10 Best Young Players in CanPL

Recommended Posts

I am taking the initiative and doing this piece. Under 23 (could be born 1995, but they have to have 23 or younger at the moment)

Do you agree with this list? (no order, just the list of players I am choosing for this)

1.      Nico Pasquotti (23)

2.      Noah Verhoeven (20, Pacific)

3.      Tristan Borges (21, Forge FC)

4.      Emilio Estevez (21, York 9)

5.      Kadell Thomas (22, Forge)

6.      Marco Carducci (22, Cavalry)

7.      Akeem Garcia (22, Halifax)

8.      Matthew Baldisimo (21, Pacific)

9.      Kadin Chung (20, Pacific)

10.   Cyrus Rollocks (21, York 9)

8. Terrance Campbell (20,PFC)

9. Louis Belland-Goyette (23,Valour)

10. Peter Schaale (23, HFX)

 

This would be my top 10 as of today. I think Adekugbe not being on your list is a major snub.

Yeah, thanks. I posted this for feedback as I am looking to see what a lot of people will agree with. I am writing a piece on this since nobody has yet.

Someone also said Attardo to me,. but I've seen little of Valour compared to the rest so I'll have to go back and catch up on them!

I was on the fence for Attardo. Decided against it as he isn’t seeing a whole bunch of minutes so hard to justify right now. I do think he has one of the higher potentials tho.

Attardo's main claims are his age (still 17) and his 2 goals in relatively few starts (3) and appearances (7). In open play he has done well but still looks a bit over awed. Has not been helped by Valour's tactics but at this point I would put him in the "promising" category, rather than what has already been accomplished.

If we are talking about all players 23 and under, it is hard to see him as one of the top ten (yet!).

Edit: Looking at CPL.stats he has actually had a bunch of shots! Sorry Tyler!

Abzi for Y9 for sure.

 

Yeah, he's good but I thought there were better options, hence why I didn't include him.

It would be cool to see a top 23 under 23 by CPL(like MLS.com). I think UNDER 23 so not 23 is a good number. To me that's kinda the max as far as grouping players as "Young" or "Prospects" or however you want to label it. Once your 23 your for the most part a finished product. Generally speaking

Meh. Under 23 or 23 and under I don’t think it makes much of a difference.

I am trying to find work at CanPL to write topics like that, or OneSoccer. I have asked around but if nothing comes I'll just submit it to other websites like Breaking The Lines who I'm good friends with the owner.

I'd like to see a CPL "team of the week".

Although the bizarre scheduling means that some teams may not play.

You should.. that would be cool. It's not an exact science so just take a stab at it. It's great exposure for players because I know if I saw a list like that for any random league around the world like that I would be inclined to look thru it. So I'm sure it would circulate

 

I would throw a player out there. The 17 yr old on Pacific who has played for the Saudi Arabia youth team. He's a slick player

Tough with 7 teams in my opinion. I think the tough part about it is that with so few games you're guaranteed a player who had a horrible game make the list. The bizarre scheduling doesn't help either.

Maybe if we expand to 10 teams, or even 8 then that could work.

I know a few people from CanPL and have a good journalistic resume, but still I have a history of getting rejected. So we'll see.

I'd choose Terran Campbell over Rollocks, Estevez or Thomas. Perhaps a few others too. I think he has 4 goals and 2 assists now

Instead of a team of the week, due to the low number of games maybe a positional best player. Defender of the week, midfielder of the week, attacker of the week, goalkeeper of the week. 1 per line would make it meaningful enough.

Simmons age 21 at HFX is mysteriously overlooked. He is Rarely named in the pre game HFX line up predictions written up by the CPL editors yet he has started 12/16 games for them in the key position as DM. His highlights video went on you tube a few weeks back and I think he will be one of the few young players who will be snapped up by a big league club within 1-2 seasons as his technique, passing, intelligence and decision making is on another level, which is not surprising when you look closer at his development background in England and Sweden.

I think Langwa (am I spelling that right) has to be up there.

Dude has killer speed and is a decent enough footballer. Wasn't he also in the best 11 for Spring season? Can't recall if he plays left back or right back, but either way he's not only a shout out for top young CPL players, but I think needs to be considered for the Olympic team, at least. He's born 1998 iirc.

I really don’t like Langwa that much. To me he is over hyped. Sure he looks decent going forward, but he has a lot to be desired defensively. He is very mistake prone.

For those Tramsfermarkt fans out there, they have now updated values for CPL clubs...

Here's the link for Euros:

https://www.transfermarkt.com/canadian-premier-league-fall-season/startseite/wettbewerb/CA1F

Apparently just playing for a professional team gives you a value -- a very dubious assumption.

I noted the values of the Valour players as they were signed and many were €0.

Non zero players:

Hoyle:€300k

Petrasso: €250k

Arguiñarena: €250k

Bustos: €200k

Golubar: €200k

Paolicci: €200k

Beland-Goyette: €175k

Murrell: €175k

Thomas: €175k

Farago: €150k

Galán: €150k

Gutierrez Zuñiga: €100k

Mitter: €75k

Carreiro: €50k

Apart from Hoyle, it does seem as though Valour's higher valued players have been their better players.

Edit: just reviewed the value adjustments, and with a couple of exceptions they are pretty darned good!

This list is making me realize just how many of this league’s core guys are still relatively young professionals. And yet, some of the more highly touted young players coming into the season like Choiniere, Legault, Muenkat, Doe, Bitar, and Hamilton have yet to have a big breakout. We’ve got a lot of kids out there who can play.

Somehow Marco Bustos hasn’t been mentioned yet. Daniel Krutzen has been one of the leagues more impressive defenders too IMO. 

My 10: 

1. Tristan Borges

2. Nico Pasquotti

3. Marco Carducci

4. Peter Schaale

5. Akeem Garcia

6. Marco Bustos

7. Daniel Krutzen

8. Elijah Adekugbe

9. Noah Verhoeven

10. Terrance Campbell

 

Honourable Mentions : Connor James, Abzi, Estevez, Chung, Gutierrez, Esua, Temguia, LBG Waterman, Aparicio, Gogarty, Simmons, Langwa

Yeah this is probably the best list in this thread - although I would swap Garcia and Langwa I think from the Halifax contingent. Simmons should be there too. IMO the Halifax young guys are ranked Schaale -> Langwa -> Simmons -> Garcia. As mentioned earlier, Simmons is massively overlooked. I also disagree with the assessment that Langwa is overhyped. He is young - bound to make mistakes. He reminds me of a young Doneil Henry with TFC, who is currently one of the starting CBs with our national team. Langwa has a ton of raw talent and he has shown strength defensively and offensively. I like Langwa a lot. Hell - here is my hot take. He'll get called up at some point in the next 2-4 years given how little depth Canada has at that position. You heard it here first!

Bustos is 23.. if your going to include 23 year olds you might as well just make a list of top 10 players in the league. I dont have data in front of me but i would guess at least 60% of the league is either 23 or younger.. so not such an exciting criteria
