    Victor Montagliani mentions that we'll have a home friendly against another CONCACAF team in fall. It has not yet been officially announced. Starts around minute 3:15.

    It's not about the location being "sexy"; it's about having a population large enough to eventually make it financially plausible. Columbus and Sacramento have metro areas of over two million people. Moncton has 144,000 - and I'm not going to pretend that you'll see a thousand people making the hour-and-a-half drive from both Saint John and Fredericton every week to catch a game. I know we're not expecting this league to make money at the start, but there needs to be a path to get there eventually. KW might have one. Halifax might have one. Even somewhere like Windsor or Saskatchewan might have one. Moncton doesn't - not at the level we want this league to play at.

    Because youre thinking with an MLS-North American League mindset. Soccer can work in Moncton. Many cities smaller than Moncton have soccer clubs around the world. With the right owners and stadium, Moncton will work fine

And with any luck Wednesday, the London-born, North Vancouver-raised left fullback will be able to put Canadian international before it. His friends back home call him Lav, for short. In Germany, where he plays for FSV Frankfurt in the third division, his teammates call him Dante after the Brazilian who use to patrol the defence for Bayern Munich. "Because no one can say La'Vere," Corbin-Ong said. "And he also has curly hair (read Afro) and we kind of look similar." ........

    Exactly. Not to be a Debby downer, but the article was basically a proclamation from the New Brunswick association that investors should be interested, not that there had been any investors lined up. That's not saying it can't happen, but a provincial president saying "we should be considered" isn't exactly ground shaking. At most it's a sign that the provincial associations are starting to plan on how things will change for them once CPL kicks off

    Pretty ridiculous IMO and I'm a big Larin fan. i would still take Altidore over Larin by quite a bit if I had to pick one for a match tomorrow. Will be interesting to see how Larin's production in Europe compares to Jozy's (who was very good in Eredevisie and not so good in EPL)

    At our last meeting the rep from SEA actually said we should not expect to hear anything until some time in April at the earliest. I got the impression that the league did not want to announce anything til all 'T were crossed and I's dotted. That way when the announcement was made everyone would be hitting the ground running A few of the guys in our supporters group seem to think that 2018 is still on the table. Otherwise why would SEA be giving a big presentation in March 2017 if a team was not going to start til 2019? Seems like a reasonable line of thought. My personal feeling is that while 2018 is not a 100% lock it is still on the table and is still the goal. PS Did BBTB really suggest a city that draws 31,000 people every game for the CFL would no way be able to draw 6,000 to watch soccer? I dont think it would be crazy to think a Regina CPL team could draw 20% of what the Riders do on a consistent basis. Especially if the Riders were behind the marketing - they do a great job of marketing their CFL team. Lets have some love here for Saskatchewan its a great place we really need to stop underestimating them. They have a great community and sporting spirit.

    Altidore is able to break down a defense coming from behind the forward position. He is also better attacking from a wing. I think he dribbles better and as a playmaker he is better as well. So I pretty well agree. Cyle is a finisher, which is a hard thing to be in any sport. Not everyone can do it, so if he can keep doing it as he rises in in competitive level, he'll become very valuable. If he does not improve, he'll end up like Olivier Occéan or so. IMO he needs to improve his work rate, and movement off the ball (just go to a game and watch Luis Suarez the whole match, there you'll have it, the way he works his shoulder into a defender, lays off, adjusts sides, turns to set himself in one spot, then shifts 15 metres and repeats in another spot, as well as the runs he makes into space, all the off the ball work including bumping into defenders, is exemplary; then he has great balance when receiving the ball and can release quickly, things I think Cyle also has. Another player I think you can watch is Ibra, I love him off the ball, but he is different physically, with his length and flexibility).

    I would take a 21 year old Larin over a 21 year old Altidore. Not by much, but Larin has that super quick release that can catch a keeper off guard. I hope he ends up in one of Europe's triple A leagues to season himself before moving on to the top flights (if he gets there)

    He seems to be less dynamic than REB and more vertical in his play like Morgan, but he can actually dribble. Again, haven't seen much need to see more.

    Miller said he feels he has an “excellent, attack-minded group.” He’s used Straith — usually thought of as a back-line player or a holding midfielder — in a more attacking midfield role, with good results.

    No arguments from me. I do think Larin is going to outgrow MLS quickly, and will need to move to Europe soon (likely after this year) to continue to develop his game. Somewhere like Celtic, or a club in the Eredivisie, or the Belgian league is the right move IMO.

    Hopefully his career won't be anything like Edwini-Bonsu's who was a sub in every season in his career except his season in d2 finland and is now a d4 sub in germany at almost 27. In germany he was very criticized for his defending. His first touch and finishing also made sure he was staying in the lower leagues.

    I'm not sure Johnson is a clear-cut starter in midfield. At times he played second fiddle to Osorio and Cooper in Toronto. He never did reclaim a starting position in Portland. Now he is not even playing midfield for Orlando. I don't know. We'll have to see how Zambrano sets us up. Let's just say i'd rather have Johnson starting at RB than on the bench.

    Whitecaps 2017 Season

    Too early to fire Robbo, but I must admit I am watching him closely. Having Bola in the game made a big difference, and this only further supports the notion that we need a general in the middle of the park. Maybe Reyna can play that role, but I get the impression he is more like Mezquida than a Michael Bradley. Bola can control the game a fair bit from the wing, but we need that control across the field, and he cannot be everywhere, especially as a winger. How the hell did Hurtado NOT at least hit the goaltender on his half break? Just strike the ball across the face of the goal, force a save or a rebound that Kekutah could pounce on. It was a poor game, but the Caps were looking much better when Bola came on, and the Brek did something stupid and selfish. My take is that Brek barely gives a **** anymore. Or maybe this is what you get when you sign an eccentric dude who does not give a **** about anyone else.

    Some of your details are incorrect or absent. You are correct about the MoE, it was around that time and the Ti-Cats had a MoE agreement with the NASL for the region for an expansion franchise. However then the NASL got hit with the traffic scandal and looked like it was going to collapse in on itself (and it still might). What's missing is at a later date, when the Ti-Cats and the city had actually worked out a lease agreement, they were given until 2016 to field a team from my understanding, which was later extended to 2017. Frankly.it wouldn't have made a lot of sense for the Ti-Cats to have fielded a soccer team BEFORE the 2015 Pan-Am games had actually occurred. It was later extended to 2017 from my understanding, but really it's a moot point now. The city's stance on Tim Hortons Field at this point has pretty much been "We aren't making any improvements to the site, or talking with anyone but the Ti-Cats until the build deficiencies and litigation is addressed." Second, apart from the fact that MLSE's soccer attempt was an overwhelmingly transparent attempt to lock down any potential competition for TFC, the city council rejected it, not only because they didn't want to further damage their relationship with the Ti-Cats (which was already strained after the stadium debate) but also because MLSE didn't provide enough details for the city, and hadn't even yet received approval from the CSA to join the USL. It was very clear this was a longshot attempt to lockdown soccer rights at Tim Hortons Field and prevent future NASL expansion (of which the MLS/USL has been VERY bullish on)

    Edmonton has had an academy this entire time so nothing wasted there. Ottawa ditched theirs and became a reserve team. Calgary is wishful thinking and Hamilton wasn't interested apparently. Can we end the revisionist history and useless negativity? Let's step into reality and realize that we are as close as a year away from the first match being played in the Canadian ******* Premiere League! This is an awesome time to be a soccer fan in this country. If the league by some chance has to start in 2019, big deal. This is not about qualify for Qatar, it's about becoming a true football nation for decades to come. Being a voyageur is tough, it can give a mental **** kicking to your sporting psyche. This should be a joyous time, let's try to embrace it.

    Just to build on your point Matty our local ownership group told us they are aiming for 2018 but even with a 2018 launch the league will not be announced til April or May. Secondly the local ownership suggested it is not going to be a sort of 'We are going to have a league stay tuned' announcement. When the league is announced they seemed to indicate that everything is going to be ready to go. League websites, team websites, locations ect. In other words when the announcement does come down they are going to be hitting the ground running. Everything is proceeding in Halifax as a 2018 launch - tenders have been bid on to build the field. The tender includes big fines if the work is not completed on time. They want to make sure there is lots of time to put stands up so we are ready at 2018 launch. People are panicking I think just because the stakeholders are doing a good job keeping their plans quiet. People are not used to this in the internet age lol

    Octavio Zambrano

    Seriously though, in some ways it is an underwhelming appointment in that he is not a big name with lots of success at high level leagues or internationally but at the same time I think he is a better choice than many I have seen named as possible candidates. He seems to have had success everywhere he is gone except at a few situations where there were club financial and stability issues. There are good coaches to be found who have for whatever reason and often just not being lucky enough have not had the chance to coach at a top level. If and it is a big if, the selection committee did their due diligence in assessing him he could turn out to be the type of coach we so desperately need. I remember when the Impact hired Jesse Marsh it was a pretty underwhelming hire on the face of it but many people who had worked with him were saying he was a really good coach and that turned out to be true. Zambrano has a much longer history in many places than Marsh did and if the CSA questioned a lot of his former players and employers and they said similar things about him then he might be a great hire.

    Congrats on the call up. Not sure on his form but he has got lots of gametime this year. Hopefully the gametime and international call might lead to a move so he doesn't have to play a league lower when his team gets relegated. Frankfurts Goals conceded alone would actually put them around mid table. 6 points adrift at the bottom with woeful form though.

    March 17, 2017 Canada Soccer--Announcement of new Canadian Men's national team coach (by Rocket Robin) Details of the press conference held Friday March 17, 2017 at 10:00am in the Pier 4 Room of the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in downtown Toronto. Attendance was about thirty people all formally invited by the Canadian Soccer Association with two days notice. Before it started everyone knew about the appointment. When I first received the e-mail, I didn't know and wondered why anything about the 'Canada's men's national team' would be announced in Toronto as the team will be playing Curacao on June 13th in Montreal and that would be the place to pump up the enthusiasm. Ooh maybe it's the announcement of the new Canadian league? That's been overdue and keeps getting delayed. Hmm. Then I started getting twitter messages and e-mails that it was to announce a new head coach it made some sence. Toronto the 'media capital of Canada'---when the Canadian Women's team played a friendly in Vancouver, the result didn't make Toronto's papers (time zones) and by the next day it was old news. Also I asked Richard Scott after the conference whether Zambrano could speak French. No! English and Spanish. Well English speaking Toronto solves that. I always thought Benito Floro could have used a translator just because he was so soft spoken. A small head table on an elevated stage had the President of Canada Soccer Peter Montagliani, newly announced Men's Head Coach Octavio Zambrano and Victor Montopoli, General Secretary of the CSA. Montagliani and Zambrano gave opening remarks before taking questions from the media. Montagliani immediately announced Zambrano as the new head coach of the Men's team but also supervision of the entire men's side of the program from U-15s right to the Senior team. The CSA wanted to change the structure of the entire program so there's be "uniformity" and "one voice". Secondly it is because Zambrano has so much experience in all the coaching he's done. He then outlined briefly the wealth of experience OZ brings to the position. PM thinks this will be the most challenging position OZ has faced. Even more challenging than CONCACAF is ourselves! Meaning the Canadian culture and negative mindset that we have and we've only started to shed it in the last four or five years. OZ has some excellent instincts for the game, he's a winner, not afraid to take on challenges. We're confident he's the right person for the job. OZ starts by expressing his deepest gratitude to all the people of the CSA for making him feel welcome. We have a responsibily not only to the first team, the Olympic team but the grassroots level and all the national teams in between. With them we must create an identity of football. To ensure that Canada reaches not just the next level but the highest level. "I feel I've prepared all my life for this job!" "I am thankful and will not disappoint". Next the new Umbro Canada soccer jersey is unveiled. It's all white with red trim, letters and numbers. I can't see a difference between it and other jerseys over the years. Click click click! Go the cameras. The two of them turn it around and it reads 17 and Zambrano. Now questions from the floor: Kristian Jack TSN: VM what made it stand out that OZ was the right guy? VM: experience factor but also the ability to take on the role for the program. James Sharman Sportsnet: OZ well known for turning around teams quickly but at the club level, what's your biggest challenge at the international level? OZ: I've spoken to quite a few colleagues and international coaches while doing my research. The selection process of the player is the most important. Making sure they have the right quality. The BEST of the Canadian squad is a good group...young guys coming up and guys that have been scouted. A different guy from TSN: VM Too many voices? What did OZ sell you on in terms of development? What is his philosophy? OZ answers first: age 3 to 12 is the age of discovery. It is a critical time as we must achieve a total mastery of the ball. Ie wel should be able to teach any technical ability that the game requires. Then at age 12 or 13 game strategies but we have to have the skills first. As we work on the first team (priority) we should also be looking after the bottom half/the grass roots Teach and monitor that the skills are being taught. VM: Not just OZ's ability to do the job but it's more a cultural thing. Canada one of the few places where we have a lack of respect for the system. Not the result of not getting the (game) results because other countries also don't get results. We already have coaching books/strategies. It's all there, follow it. The problem is people want to pull off the training sessions from Everton Football Club rather than using the resources we have here. We have an amateur environment and it's killing us. That's one of the reasons we have to grow on the professional side. We're starting to do that but it's the early days. Anthony Totera from Red Card: When you were in the process of taking this position with the promise of a league that will be set up here in Canada so you can have a look at more Canadian talent? OZ: It is the utmost importance that we have our own league! I commend VM, PM and everyone for making sure this is done. There are a lot of player that are a lot peripheral players at the highest levels of North America and Europe. They are there but they are not playing/getting quality minutes! The league will give them that opportunity. It will also give me a chance to monitor them and interact with the coaches. We will not rely on the MLS environment. We will make decisions for the benefit of the Canadian players. [I was 'marking out' for this answer as I watched Toronto FC play Philadelphia Union on the weekend with TFC having no Canadian starters. Also even TFC II have been making announcements for new goalie from St Louis USA, new Finnish guy signed etc]. Kristian Jack TSN: (for VM) Other countries head coaches are strictly evaluated for results on the field. This feels different. An enormous job! Should there be patience shown if the results don't come very quickly for the senior squad? VM: Yeah there has to be patience but we have to accelerate the attitude that winning is important. There's a guy sitting behind you—our U-17 coach—trust me, he likes to win [that is Paul Stalteri]. He (PS) also knows he has a job on the development perspective but he's not going to just go there, he wants to qualify. You can't undermine development for an attitude of winning (winning is part of development). The problem with that in the professional environment we must balance winning and development. Because we are mostly in an amateur environment we don't balance that we get into an ugly parent syndrome. Winning is '1A' if development is '1'. Richard Scott from CSA: For our first home match in Montreal, OZ talk about your passion. OZ: We can't step onto the pitch without having the passion to win at all costs but fairly. We've been happy to participate but we've not been keen enough to think that we can win. If you don't have the fire to make that extra move to go all in then you won't be part of this program. Anthony Totera again: Have you decided on your coaching staff? Also are you going to try to convince some of the players that have not committed to Canada to play for us? OZ: Yes (for second question) me and the CSA must try to convince the players that this is a big issue for us and we truly want him to have the honour to wear the Canadian jersey. We must say the right thing to make them commit. Very important to engage with them. First question he introduces his staff (who were not there). Fitness Trainer Norberto Salamanca all his exercises involve the ball. Assistant coach Javier Livia will bring his knowledge of Europe. Assistant coach Michael Findlay will stay on. He has a knowledge of Canadian soccer. Zak Abdel as goalkeeper coach has worked with OZ since LA Salsa days. Experienced and great at finding young players. Wrap up and instructions for break out sessions given. Thank yous. After the former part of the press conference, the reporters broke up for individual interviews with Montagliani and Zambrano which meant the camera crews shoved their way in to pick up the sound bites. Some of this would be picked up on the lunchtime news and it was being tweeted about while the conference was in progress. I certainly couldn't compete with this. I heard the very end of Montagliani answering questions about the new Canadian league. He said there'ld be a MINIMUM of six teams to start. Some teams may join by the second year. He said he only has six weeks left of his three year term as president of the CSA. (he has been elected as head of CONCACAF). He said it was "a tough decision but the right decision". I asked Anthony Totera about if he'd heard when there may be an announcement but all he would say was "soon". Paul Stalteri was there and he remains the men's Under 17 head coach. I pointed out to the Toronto Star reporter Laura Armstrong that for the last five days the print edition of their paper has published the MLS Standings with 'New York' (as opposed to New York City) holding both first place in the East and second place in the West (instead of Houston). Do you think if it was an error in the hockey or baseball standings that this would carry on for an entire week? There's my niche! The Periscope broadcast of this press conference has disappeared and video will be squeezed to 20 second clips for the sports news. I have the entire 22 minutes of the formal press conference which I can post! I expected reporters would place their recorders, phones, etc on the table like the last Toronto press conference but no one did so I didn't either. I am behind the times. Good thing I was in the front row and my two little Sandisks (one for back up) picked up good enough! Rocket Robin robing@eol.ca

    Objectively speaking, he does tick several of the boxes I wanted to see in the next CMNT manager: 1) He's from Central or South America 2) Likely to coach more of an attacking style 3) CONCACAF experience 4) Will likely have an understanding of the difficulties of playing in challenging environments 5) Speaks English (or French) In a perfect world, his resume is a bit better and he has shown the ability/desire to stay in one job for more than a couple years. But that said, off the bat I'm cautiously optimistic. Definitely willing to give him a chance. Hopefully he has lofty Gold Cup ambitions because I think that is vital for both the program and to get his reign off on the right foot! (Or left)

    CSA needs to stop doing things they way they've always done things and check into the real world. Coaches should always have a fire under their ass to produce, that's football. If we don't make the group stage at this summer's Gold Cup, OZ should be sacked. We're not building a team from the ground up this time. Our top 20-25 players are pretty obvious. He needs to hit the ground running, we don't have time to waste.

    I keep thinking Ottawa would be great to try. They seem to have gotten solid support for the Fury, they have a new stadium, and it's within easy enough distance for travelling fans from Toronto and Montreal. Would seem to tick a lot of the boxes for things we want in a location.
