The link describes Frano as the "alternative captain." That surprise anyone else? He was our yellow card leader last season...

I think I remember Frano wearing the armband last season. Maybe when Bekker was "on vacation?"

If Borges isn't on Forge and Escalante and Malonga don't return to Cavalry I could see the championship being a much closer race.

I think it would narrow the gap for sure, but I think both squads are strong enough that there would still be a gap between them and the other clubs

I hope to see some new, exciting players in th league. Will be a bit disappointed if they keep almost the entirely same roster. I know they had success, but would like to see the quality improve.

It is nice to see a fair amount of teams kept their core intact. The chemistry alone will increase the quality, but I agree. Would be nice to see some bigger new signings

I didn't expect Borges to be a Forge player this season and he still may not be, whether he stays or goes Forge really need a striker who will score goals, I am not overly impressed with who they have and lack of goal scoring from them was papered over by Borge's great production!

Somewhat true in that they never had a true finisher up top but the team production was great.  Forge was still able to look good even with Borges on the bench so it's not like he was Giovinco-like influence.

I quite liked Owundi, but he's an international probably making a decent wage and can be replaced by Edgar so it makes sense that they'd jettison him.

Yes, he was a solid defender for Forge but it was telling that he never started the 2nd leg of the final even when available after suspension, he's got MLS experience, I had a good chat with him at a Forge event, a very nice humble person, sad to see him leave but there should be enough defensive options without him!

Swoop just started direct summer flights between Chtown and Hamilton.  If I am heading to Toronto at som point, I will prob go via Hamilton so may be able to catch a Forge home game this summer.  

That is great news, come visit us in The Hammer!

I think it was clear that Edgar was an upgrade on Owundi and in a tight salary cap league tough choices have to be made.  I expect Owundi catches on somewhere else as he’s clearly good at this level.

Forge needs another up front striker though.  They’re going to be plugging that hole.  
 

I’m no longer expecting Borges to move on this year, but probably this is his last season with us.
