  5. If we make the top 2 in our group, here are the likely teams we would need to face. The USA squad: http://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2020/03/u23-usmnt-head-coach-jason-kreis-names-usa-roster-for-2020-concacaf-olympic-qualifying-championship The Mexico squad: http://miseleccion.mx/noticias/3121/Convocatoria de la SNM Sub-23 para el Campeonato Preolímpico de Concacaf 2020 Both are obviously really full of talent.

    He had some really nice touches and surprised me with his acceleration. Great move to set up AJH who should have scored. Never going to be an energy guy racing up and down the wing but he is getting minutes and hopefully can get back to where he should be. Quioto had a horrendous game and Tabla was a significant upgrade yesterday

  10. This is all speculation, but there's good reason to believe that the club has signed Francisco Acuna, a 32 year old Mexican midfielder playing for Puebla in Liga MX. He has most recently followed both Atletico Ottawa and Ben Fisk on Instagram, he made a story yesterday that he was heading to Spain, and today it was made official that he was departing Puebla.

  11. Are we really playing to our strengths if we sacrifice a player further up the pitch just to play with an extra CB? That's our weakest position

  12. Also IIRC, in his last match in charge vs El Salvador we had to resort to calling guys like Elva, Bekker, Aleman and Schweitzer. Did it not clue into him .. “hey, how about they guy in Serie A I convinced?”

  15. Was there funny business with the POTY voting? I don’t know. He could’ve had the entire population of Collingwood voting for him. He was the only Y9 player to make the CPL best IX. Telfer was player of the year IMO. I could see not wanting to name you POTY as someone on loan from TFC though. Gasparotto and Ingham round out the podium. Abzi and Doner honourable mentions for me. Prediction for 2020 POTY is Ugarriza.

  18. Last speculative bit from instagram. Considering that he was most recently followed by 4 confirmed signings, it seems that 23 year old Ghanaian attacking midfielder Bernardinho is in the Ottawa camp. He has most recently been playing for a third division Belgian club, on loan from First Division Belgian Club KV Westerlo. As much as I typically take social media followings with a grain of salt, the team is in a training camp and thus clearly has players who are meeting with each other for the first time (including players who may not be officially signed or announced).

  19. Still speculating off of Instagram, but it seems that Jamaican international Tevin Shaw may also be in camp with Ottawa. He's a 23 year old midfielder with 6 senior international caps, who most recently played for Portmore United in Jamaica.

  21. There's really no arguing that the Scottish Championship is a higher level than the Irish Premier Division, and they have played a similar number of matches at those levels. Not to mention that Zanatta hasn't been a consistent starter in the Scottish Champ this season. But yes, Zanatta is normally a striker and Twardek is normally a RW/RM, and only occasionally plays on the left nowadays, so I don't think it makes sense to compare them in the context of the final roster. He can absolutely take players on 1v1, you seem to be basing your opinion on what you saw with the youth team

    Agree that Tabla was better this time around. Seemed to dig a little deeper in the effort department. Quioto was very poor but I don't think Tabla is close to overtaking him yet because it is too early. He'll need to keep earning opportunities and make the most of them. Okwonkwo was the best player when he came on though. Him and Lappi seem to be the top wingers on this team currently, but Quioto and Tabla have the potential to be just as good. All four are pretty close talent wise, but whoever is most consistent will get the minutes.

  24. The one thing Twardek has on all the others is experience. He has played almost 100 pro matches in Europe and has pretty extensive international experience between the Czechs and us. I don't mind him as an option in this squad.

  25. As imagined, the CSA is being panned by people on Twitter because of Zombrano's comments. Which is so unfair. Octavio is right to be pissed about how he was dismissed and if I remember correctly, he's already tweeted negative things about the CSA. I find it hard to believe he actually got a solid confirmation about Cristante, and I find it especially hard to believe his agent was pushing his client to take up Canada at that age (as if agent's words means anything).

  27. They hurt themselves digging a hole in the 1st half as Thierry mentioned by getting schooled. However in the second half they got CONCACAFed Like who’s the referee here? The man on the spot who without hesitation made the call or the guy on the line yards away!? Man this region really gives me the creeps. Like Liam Neesons said in Rob Roy “best be no skullduggery here”

  28. Damn, who gave him that guarantee to be in the squad? I haven't been impressed with what I've seen from him, and was hoping to see someone else tbh. I knew there would be snubs, but wasn't thinking it would be for him. He's not very versatile.

  31. I hear that, but I also enjoy seeing other souls at a soccer game aside from a massive wall of empty seats. If those temp bleachers weren't so stranded and were wider, actually linking up with the other permanent seats maybe it would work. Also if the nearest section of seats wasn't all tarped off maybe you could have made it a lot more cohesive, visually appealing, and less isolated. It would also serve to make it look much more intimate. As it stands now, if attendance is good, it's hard to get more supporters than what's in section W. If you had a big area behind the net that was GA people

  35. Shows up as a starter with St. Hubert in the PLSQ in my records. PLSQ very much still feels like an unmined league, and the ones that have come through (Abzi and Bona come to mind) have all done well.

    I think we should put this dream of El Salvador agreeing to play us to bed. I see no chance they agree to that, unless somehow they are behind on points. But then why would we do it....

  37. Been thinking this too. Maybe we've been reading the rule wrong this whole time. It's going to be killer for Y9 to get to the 1000 minute mark if Abzi doesn't count and I can't see them making a team as they have without knowing definitively that he does. The draft picks haven't been officially signed either. Karajovanovic has to battle with Vasconcelos, Ugarriza, Jaco, Hamilton for minutes. Ferrari with Manny, Di Chiara, Murofushi, Mannella, Estevez, Porter in midfield. Johnston probably has the easiest path to minutes if he were to relieve Doner at RB but that is a lot to ask

It brought me back from my comment last week on the USA team. I said I was unimpressed, but what I should have said was there seems to be a lot of players missing. I didn't mean the obvious ones, like Pulisic and McKennie, who were never going to be called to begin with. I meant guys like Keaton Parks, Mason Toye and Miles Robinson. The USA B team is still strong, but this B team could arguably have been stronger. Anywa

  40. That's fair, though it has been at a similar level IMO. Was he snubbed from the Toulon tournament or unavailable? I thought he was poor for the U20s in 2017. Regardless, I think it's clear that Twardek is higher on the CSA's depth chart based on history.

  44. Ok, so pretty much at least one day would be dedicated just to getting onto the island if I used public transit, whereas if I rented a car, I could probably get there the day of arrival, but would obviously have to factor that cost vs the cost of an extra night's stay, of which I'm pretty sure the extra night will be cheaper. The core issue is flights from Hamilton to Abbotsford are dirt cheap ($210 round trip right now) which makes the trip possible. I am skeptical of getting another flight even close to that ballpark. Everything I find is around $300 one way to either Victoria or Vancouve

  45. Hey guys, serious question. I am considering making the trip out for the May game vs Forge, but really what it comes down to is cost and time. How easy/how much would it cost to get to the island from Abbotsford Airport via public transit. From what I can tell, the cheapest way is to take a shuttle bus for $20 from the airport to Scott Rd. Station in Surrey, and then take two buses to reach the ferry (which appears to be $3) and then the Ferry which is $18 to reach the island. Google Maps pegs this at a little over 3.5 hours to get to the Ferry terminal. Just wanted some input on this on

  46. If the league can grow to 12-15 teams with academies attached to each program that will be a massive success. Relegation systems and d2 is something that is miles away if it’s even feasible

  47. Jesus Ferreira best player you didn't mention. No game is easy, but every game is there to win. I'll reserve my comments till when I see our team....which could be really strong. Either way the talent should be there to make it happen and #BTA (beat the Americans) when the time comes.
