    Not sure where to put this. Looks like TSN is doing a special (Thursday 730 EST) ranking the top CANMNT players in the world currently.

    I think "Quarantine cabin fever" has set in. I just watched part of " Stone Skipping Championship" on TSN! And I thought Underwater basket weaving was boring. The next person that tells me soccer is boring I know what to answer.......😀. BTW the winner was 20 skips and the world record is 88. Now you know. In case you were wondering.😁

    Good podcast there -Salaries of CPL comparable to USL. Main difference is the currency. -Outside perception that CPL > USL because of D1 vs. USL. Production/presentation from Mediapro reinforces that perception

    The Road to Qatar.

    It should be very clear by now that there won't be enough space in the calendar for the 7-35 tournament (or Hex) to run as scheduled. It's also very likely that FIFA windows will be reduced to play postponed league matches. This isn't business as usual guys. Expect some massive scheduling compression - which may help us or further hurt us - but it's pointless to even try to change things up now until the health situation becomes clearer.

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    One of my favourite Soccer podcasts “Total Soccer Show” does listener questions. It’s an American podcast but last week I asked who had a higher ceiling, Pulisic or Davies. Fun response which I’m glad a whole wack of USMNT fans had to listen to. https://total-soccer-show-usmnt-champions-league-epl-and-more.simplecast.com/episodes/the-minnow-xi-assembling-the-best-team-from-the-smallest-soccer-nations-plus-pulisic-v-davies-and-more-listener-questions (It’s about 30 min in)

    Well, I think he is definitely close to the best Canadian in MLS. I have him just behind Cavallini (and Cav hasn't proven himself in MLS yet). He and Kaye (and Piette) are close, but Oso has a pretty good resume, as a solid contributor on one of the best MLS teams.

    The Road to Qatar.

    I wonder if FIFA might consider making windows a couple days longer and allowing 3 matches rather than just 2. Everything is up in the air at this point. We don’t know when things will be up and running again, so it is hard to predict what might be done.

    Yeah. But your favs are all captured in a moment of time and we have a whack of players who were brilliant (in their way) this season or that season before coming back down to Earth but left a deep imprint in the mind. Still, 1st draft. ---- Radz Gerba ---- Davies Arfield Jr. -- Hutch The Guz -- Brennon deVos McKenna Diesel Forrest Bench; David, Samuel, Dasovic, The Duz, Bircham, Borjan. Injury reserve; Alex, Watson, Friend, Cavalini, Edgar, Pesch, Mobilio and Simpson. Missed out by a whisker; Too many to mention.

    Does anyone know the result of this match? I have the official programme, but I am struggling to find the result. The match was played at the Racecourse in Wrexham. Was this match part of a tour of the UK by the Canadian team? The Welsh FA listed the match as a B international, but as far as I know this was the Canadian U23 team and coached by Tony Waiters. Notes about the Canadian players from the programme --- GK Paolo Ceccarelli (North York Rockets) - The regular goalkeeper who started in all four Round 3 Qualifying matches this year and has made 8 appearances at Under 23 level. Although participating in training camps at Under 17 and Under 20 levels he did not represent his country until 1989 when he established himself with the North York Rockets. Also played at B level vs Italy in 1989 so is every experienced. He is taking time off from his studies and working as a supply teacher. Carmine Iscacco (Toronto Italia) - A student in his third year at the University of Maryland, this tall keeper has yet to appear for his country at any level and this tour will be his first national team selection. A regular for the Toronto Italia team he is very much on trial during this trip. Scott McQuillan (Kitchener Kickers) - The experienced deputy to Ceccarelli who sat on the bench throughout the Round 3 Qualifying matches and at 6ft 7in is certainly and imposing figure! Four years in the Canadian Soccer League with Edmonton Brickmen, Calgary Kickers and the last two seasons at Kitchener Kickers. Made 6 appearances at Under 20 level in 1988 during the Concacaf Championships DEFENDERS David Cepo (Hamilton Steelers) - A McMaster University student who has yet to appear at Under 23 level for his country despite making 12 appearances at under 17 and under 20 levels which included the 1989 World Cup Finals in Scotland where Canada lost all three group matches. Can also play in midfield and had a successful second season with the Hamilton Steelers in the CSL. Paul Fenwick (Hamilton Steelers) - A powerful central defender who graduated last year from McMaster University with a BSc in physiotherapy, but has taken a year off to try and fulfil his soccer ambitions. Played twice for the under 20 side in the 1988 Concacaf Championships, but despite 8 appearances at Under 23 level only played twice in the 3rd Qualifying Round scoring his countries' first goal in the 4-0 victory over El Salvador. Came to prominence with the Kitchener Kickers, but was traded to the Toronto Blizzard in 1991 without establishing himself so was glad to join Hamilton Steelers to revive his career. Carl Fletcher (Toronto Blizzard) - Very experienced performer at International level with 8 appearances at each of Under 17, 20, and 23 categories including the three group matches during the 1987 FIFA Under 17 World Championships. A regular with the Toronto Blizzard in the CSL he also had an extended trial with Bristol City in 1991. Kevin Holness (Winnipeg Fury) - Another player just as happy in midfield who returns to the squad after a groin injury. Has missed only one match in the CSL during his two seasons with Winnipeg Fury so is pretty durable. A regular squad member during the 3rd Round Qualifying matches only making the starting line up vs El Salvador, but his other international appearances include 7 at Under 17 level including at the 1987 World Championships, 4 at Under 20, 5 at Under 23 and 4 at B level. Gary Kern (Winnipeg Fury) - This tall central defender was a regular for the Under 23 team in 1990, but although in the squad for the Qualifying matches did not see any action. Played four seasons in the CSL with the Edmonton Brickmen, Calgary Strickers and for the last two years with the Winnipeg Fury team where he has been a regular. A student in his final year at the University of BC studying physical education, he also played a season of varsity basketball at the Universtiy of Calgary. Steve MacDonald (Vancouver 86ers) - An almost certain starter who has established himself in the Vancouver 86ers side especially over the past three seasons. Played in the opening two Olympic qualifying matches, but was sent off after 82 minutes in the second and was suspended for three games. In 1989 he played at B level v Faroe Islands and Italy and has appeared at three other levels including 1987 FIFA Under 17 Championships. A local sales and marketing executive in Vancouver. Mark Watson (Hamilton Steelers) - A full International with appearances v Mexico, United States, and Honduras during 1991 who played in all the four Olympic qualifying compeition matches. Initially with the Ottawa Intrepid club who joined the Steelers for the 1991 season and was selected for the CSL All Star team that season. A student at the University of BC studying sports administration, he is returning to the squad after a knee operation. MIDFIELD Fernando Aguiar (Toronto Blizzard) - A surprise selection for the trip, who has yet to make an international appearance for his country at any level. Portuguese by birth he only joined the Blizzard this season for his first in the CSL, so has clearly come from nowhere to join the party. Mike Dodd (Winnipeg Fury) - With 12 caps at Under 23 level this combative midfielder played in all four Olympic qualifying matches, so is a likely starter. Despite these caps played his first season with the Winnipeg Fury in the CSL last season with two goals from 14 appearances. At present he is taking a physical educatoin course at Capilano College before transferring to the University of BC. Scott Macey (Vancouver 86ers) - With 13 caps at Under 17 level, including the 1989 FIFA Championship finals in Scotland this experienced midfielder is a likely starter having played in all four of the 3rd Round qualifyinhg matches, scoring vs Trinidad and Tobago in Canadas' 3-0 victory. Has yet to establish himself in the Vancouver 86ers CSL team where he tends to be a squad member, but his 12 caps at Under 23 level suggest he has been a little unlucky at club level. Mike Mosher (London Lasers) - Another regular in the Olympic qualifying games with four appearances including the winning goal vs El Salvador. After four seasons in the CSL, the first three with Edmonton Brickmen, then drafted to Winnipeg Fury for the 1991 season, he will play for the London Lasers in 1992. An ever present last season with Winnipeg he also scored four goals. FORWARDS Carlo Corazzin (Pievigina, Italy) - The only European based player in the squad who has played for the last four seasons in Italy, first with Fourth Division Giorbione and then 3rd division Pievigina for the last three years. Did not play in any of the 3rd round Qualifying games, but appeared twice for the Under 23 team vs the United States in 1990. Scott Munson (Kitchener Kickers) - Named CSL Rookie of the Year last season with five goals from 25 appearances for the Kitchener Kickers in his first professional season. Along with Mark Watson has played in every Under 23 International, 13 in all and is the top scorer. Played in all the Olympic Qualifying matches, scoring four of Canada's seven goals including a hat trick vs Trinidad and Tobago. This brough him to the attention of the full International team's coach who picked him in all three Concacaf Gold Cup tournament matches last July. A student at the Simon Fraser University specialising in criminology who graduates this year. Grand Needham (Montreal Supra) - A likely starter who has played for the Supras in the CSL for the past four seasons and had his most successful year last year with seven goals in 22 matches to be named on the All Star team. Played in all four Olympic Qualifying games scoring twice vs El Salvador and also made 2 B level appearances vs Mexico and the USA during Marth 1991 in the North American Nations Cup. A student at Concordia University in Montreal specialising in anthropology. Paul Peschisolido (Toronto Blizzard) - Despite missing the training camp prior to this trip due to a groin injury he was selected for the tour due to his outstanding goalscoring record in the CSL of 28 goals from just 59 appearances. Played both Under 17 and Under 20 levels and was a starter in all the four Olympic qualifying matches scoring once vs Trinidad and Tobago.

    Great post @redcard It is clear that mass events are the ones to avoid if you want to keep some control as we move out of the crisis stage into something manageable. So that is sporting events, concerts, nightclubs, as well as weddings or religious holidays and ceremonies. Cruise ships, mass travel to resorts. We have to be realistic: the economy can get back on track in about 80% of sectors without leisure and pleasure. So we have to let that happen when the risk is under control, and do so by regions as well, not hinge the entire nation on one region or focal point doing badly. This suggests that league matches with fans is highly unadvisable. League matches without fans could work, if MediaPro and the clubs decide it is better to have some league rather than no league. But that is a question of costs. Will players consent to extreme reduction of salaries, possible isolation in certain cities or regions, and a short season, playing without fans, just to ensure that 2021 has a bit of a foothold?

    I don't see CPL starting the season until they're allowed fans in the stands. Granted I don't know much about the deal with Media Pro but I suspect a lot of teams revenue is largely based on ticket sales/concessions etc...

    UEFA are already planning to resume seasons around july/august and play behind closed doors. Don't see why CPL can't do it too if we somewhat get some control. The US doesn't factor as much since the league is independent from their system. All the players are here in isolation, non-essential travels has been banned. If it gets better here and its armageddon down there, it's not like CPL will stay put "out of respect" to the americans

    The Road to Qatar.

    Best case scenario would be they run out of dates for the hex and are forced to do two groups of 4. I could also foresee them delaying the Gold Cup to 2022 and using June 2021 to play 4 or even 6 games. They'd probably ask for a special exception from FIFA to get player release outside the normal window.

    To clarify, Derby County's Dutch coach Phillip Cocu used to be the coach at Fenerbahçe. Probably got along well with Kadioglu as they are both Dutch. He was the one who actually brought him to Fenerbahçe in 2018. Clearly wants to reunite with him and rates him highly. Didn't happen in January as Fenerbahçe blocked the deal but it might happen in the summer as Fenerbahçe have a new coach now. And who knows what the vision of the new Fenerbahçe coach is !

    He keeps coming back and seemingly all he has to do to get away with it is keep his head down as with each new incarnation the mods leave him alone for a bit. But he just can't help himself! In all honesty, it is rather amusing to watch. It doesn't help that he advertises his return with usernames that just scream "Robert"!!! I mean, who the fk else would use the moniker "BedBugs"! 😂

    Forge FC Season Thread 2020

    I just finished watching the show, it was great to look back on the season and the exciting 2 leg final, Forge really should have had it all wrapped up at home, 3 bars, a missed penalty and playing against 10 men! I'm glad they showed the best chance Cavalry had on a header, I asked Edgar about it at our championship celebration at THF lounge, at first glance it looked like he mis- timed his jump, he told me he knew the ball was going over his head so all he could do was leap and throw the forward off, which if you look at it closely he did! I miss football! Stay safe all!

    Ah yes, I remember being super stoked that once we got through to the Hex and added Junior and Jdg2, we'd surely have enough firepower to make the world cup. Both versions were obviously better than their current versions, and both players would have obviously been considered tier 1 players, to use a Herdman ranking system, but neither of them were Alphonso Davies or Jonathan David level, who are both better and younger than Junior and Jdg2 were in 2012. Funny to think back at the things that use to get us excited back then. Very thankful for where the national team is currently at.
