    Lucas Cavallini

    Cavallini is indeed starting the game, and he's just scored! His first with Puebla, around the 22nd minute, 1-0 Puebla. He received a cross in the box on a counter attack, he was left alone and just needed to turn and shoot it in.

    Fath attending the CPL meetings is a good sign, and possibly a sign that even he realizes the NASL is a sinking ship. I think FC Edmonton (and Ottawa fury for that matter) in the CPL would instantly give the league more legitimacy, an 8 year old club would instantly set the standard of the league. Really looking forward to a Calgary / Edmonton derby should it actually happen. #AlClasico or bust.

  6. 6 wins in a row, outscoring their opponents 21-3 in that stretch. This year's side is the most dominant MLS side I've ever seen. Remember when TFC were utterly abysmal for their first 7 years?

    From Fath: “As long as the USL has its current ownership and structure, we will not go to USL. There are many reasons on why I won’t go to USL that I won’t say publicly. But I can say that I do not believe in the franchise model. I believe in what I call the world model [where clubs are run independently of each other].” That pretty much confirms what CPL won't be.

    People need to understand that franchising is all about the ownership group. It's like the first, second, and third most important thing about awarding a team. We can talk about cities and stadiums all we want, but in the end the 6-8 cities in this league will be the 6-8 cities that had multimillionaires willing to invest in teams.

  10. I was talking the other day with a colleague here in Barcelona, from California, whose son plays at a similar level as my kid. And he was saying sure, he was looking at NCAA scholarship options, as a way to keep him playing soccer and studying. But when speaking to my son about this he argued, simply: first, if you want an education you should choose what to study and where to go to, regardless of a scholarship. Or stay close to home, where it's cheaper, you can still study, and have the family support you need to keep playing soccer in longer seasons in competitive adult leagues.

    IMO worth the risk if he ends up playing champions league as a result. Also, a lot of incentive for MLS to cut a deal. If you thought Camilo getting poached by Ligue MX was bad PR for their "club options" system and general deviance from global soccer contract norms, I can only imagine how week they would look and destabilizing it would be if their top prospect publicly flip them the finger as he walks out on a free.

    Dunn, Okello, and Romeo sign first pro deals Rocco Romeo – Defender Romeo is a central defender who has made 11 appearances in League1 Ontario this season while playing for TFC III. Romeo joined the Academy in 2014 coming from Woodbridge S.C. “It is a surreal experience for me. Playing for your hometown,” said the 17-year-old Romeo. “Getting to wear the shirt that everyone wears in Toronto is truly an unbelievable experience.” “Rocco is a very talented distributor of the ball,”

  19. How was it shit? He puts himself in the right spot, separates himself from the defender, controls the ball well and slots it in with the keeper rushing him. He got a bit lucky that the defender misjudged the cross but still well played by him.

  22. Trois-Rivières is an interesting market. It has a métro area of around 300k, and is 2 hours from MTL and 2 hours from Québec. Really low unemployment rate, and high incomes. They do have an existing soccer pitch at Parc Laviolette, but it's owned by the municipality and they'd need a scheme similar to Halifax to get them to part with that land.

    Yeah I think Negredo is the current back up and Larin is definitely behind him, but you never know what can happen if he makes the most of his opportunity. He was suppose to be behind DP and Honduran internation Bryan Rochez in his first year, scored his first game after not getting off the bench for the first 4 matches, and the rest is history. 4.5 years is an investment though so perhaps he will go out on loan elsewhere in the Turkish league where be can play regularly and score goals and then perhaps a year from his initial singing they can recall a 10-15 goal scorer who knows the leag

  26. Agreed. I'm as pro education as you get, but at some point you either have to commit to one path or the other. Trying to split your focus just risks becoming mediocre in both your academic field and your sport. Unless you're American of course... seems like sports is the only way to a make university affordable for many down there. Pro sports is almost always a dumb risk, might as well go big or go home

    That's pretty tame by Nicaraguan or El Salvadorian standards. Unfortunately, our kids have to learn early not to retaliate against the bites, sucker punches, and shin-splittering tackles that come out of Central America.

  28. The key to this season has been the rise of Delgado and Vazquez on top of the insane depth. I can't remember a team in MLS history that could bring players like Ricketts, Edwards, Cooper and Beitashour off the bench. Now imagine this roster with Akinola instead of Spencer and Hundal instead of Endoh. They can afford losing minor pieices here and there.

    Romeo has previously committed to MSU. This may be an unpopular view, but unless I was a can't miss soon to be MLS player, I'd go to the NCAA. An awful lot of players get stuck in USL forever and give up the NCAA option.

  32. Osorio and Ricketts start for TFC. Edwards and Chapman on the bench. No sign of Hamilton, which is surprising given his strong form with the II team. Of course, Spencer is on the bench instead.

    Manjrekar James

    It's early in James' season, but he appears to be playing a lot more this year with Vasas, possibly still out of position at DM. 4 starts and 457 minutes so far vs 5 starts and 526 minutes all of last year. I know he was injured for a spell last year, but I think he was also out of favour for a period of time as well. Nice to see him getting more minutes. Maybe the move to Vasas was better after all?

    Still it's a small sample size. I think he got a well deserved raise. I mean he was making 66k and will now be making around 165k next year. (Heard he was making around what Bernier is making) I think paying for a striker who has had 1 good MLS year.is risky.

    Mattocks started at a higher point than AJH in terms of salary so it's understandable but yes, Mattocks is overpaid. I don't think Montreal should make the same mistake with AHJ

    Ayo Akinola

    You're right I forgot about Tabla. Akinola is a better prospect than Hundal. I think Hundal will have a good MLS career and might end up being the better player if Ayo doesn't pan out, but he has a lower ceiling. Akinola's skill set (finishing, hold-up play) projects well to the professional game, even as his size advantage disappears. Hundal's major assets are speed and agility, which are probably the least transferable skills from USL to MLS, due to the increase in the speed of the game. Hundal's potential is capped unless he develops a level of finishing and passing he has yet to sh

    Bryan Cristante

    People can make all sorts of player vs player or squad vs squad claims but I tend to view these in the same light as the claims that we have the 5th or 6th (or 7th, etc) squad in CONCACAF. For me, the actual proof of player/squad quality is in the results we get in meaningful games. Knocked out in the QF of the GC (which the US won without some key players), failure to make the hex (which the US and other teams are in), etc. We have a better squad than the US? Maybe in the context of some theoretical thought experiment, but in my world that claim simply doesn't map onto reality.
