    Axel Desjardins

    Hey guys, Axel's brother here. I thought I would update his situation. First of all, the promotion was something else. He said the night of the game til the next morning was the best time of his life. He said it gave him a taste of what it's like to win something for a team, for the fans, and for a city. Especially in Spezia, where the fans are fanatics. Secondly, with a promotion in a first division, there comes a lot of changes. They have a new director, and everyone at the club is getting re-evaluated this week, including Axel. Spezia will decide if they want to keep Axel, send him on loan or transfer him in the next days. He is doing the best he can and still working very hard. They had physical tests a few days ago and he absolutely annihilated his teammates in the strength department scoring the highest by far. Axel and his agent are doing the best they can to get some minutes next season. I'll try to keep you guys updated, but we'll get some more official news soon.

    Mark-Anthony Kaye was playing USL at 23 years old. Richie Laryea didn't play a professional match until he was 21. Derek Cornelius was playing in Serbia at 20 years old. Samuel Piette was playing third division Spain at 20 years old. Jonathan Osorio turned 21 during his first professional season. Tosaint Ricketts made his professional debut at 21 years old in the Finnish league. He has since played in Romania, Norway, Turkey, Israel, and Lithuania. He is also the active leading scorer for the national team. Atiba Hutchinson was playing with the Toronto Lynx at 20 years old. Dom Yankov turned 20 a month and a half ago. He has been playing in the Bulgarian league since the age of 17.

    2020 CPL Island Games

    During the games I volunteered and was assigned to help Valour while they quarantined. There were a few evening grocery runs, a breakfast delivery and an emergency Red Bull intervention. Nothing too demanding but as a thank you gesture, I was just given a team-autographed 2020 jersey. Very, very cool. Classy organization that just acquired a fan. Cheers.

    The question isn’t whether not not he can make Davies at LB. That is a non issue. The issue is whether not we are stronger as a team with him at LB or at LW, and that debate isn’t settled or nearly as clear as your post indicates.

    @Free kick, Ludogorets is not your average Bulgarian team. They are miles ahead of everyone else in their league. Yes the league is terrible, and if he was on any other team in Bulgaria I would agree with you. But Ludogorets is a very good team and he is starting for them at 20 which is impressive. On top of that, he has played for Bulgaria at multiple age levels so they obviously rate him as well. We have not had any matches in ages and have no matches in the near future. What else are we supposed to talk about if we aren’t allowed to discuss prospects like this?

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Hi everyone, I write from Italy and I found this forum searching for Davies on google. Below you will find an article on Davies on a very well regarded soccer website here in Italy. It is in Italian but with google translate you should be able to understand it https://www.rivistaundici.com/2020/08/19/alphonso-davies-bayern/ Btw, do you want Cristante back in exchange for Davies?

    Mo Farsi

    I disagree with you on this one. First off "it's really hard to judge the players". I think having our own league greatly improves our ability to judge the players. In the past we had guys like Babouli playing in Syria, Aleman playing in Costa Rica, Bustos playing in USL, Fisk playing in Ireland, Boakai playing in Finland, and Chung playing in lower levels in Germany. With CPL we put all those guys in one league and we can see how they play in a single league (and how unproven guys like Farsi do against these pros as well), instead of doing the mental gymnastics of trying to figure out what is better, a mid-table Costa Rican team or a bottom table Finnish team, etc. As for the U21 minutes, I think the rule prevents things like what we see with TFC for example. In any given year, TFC will have a few guys they signed from the academy that are destined to get 0 minutes in the season. I don't think the minutes restrictions are very onerous for the managers. I don't have the numbers in front of me but I think all the teams save for Forge easily surpassed the quota this year in some cases more than doubling the minutes requirements. And besides, doesn't Liga MX have youth player requirements? Even the EPL has domestic player rules, which is similar in that it mandates a quota of a specific type of player, and therefor limits a team from building the squad in certain ways. I would argue Liga MX and the EPL don't have identity crises and are in fact top tier leagues.

    Richmond "Richie" Laryea

    You can pretty much throw out MLS assists stats as being meaningless since they deprived Laryea of one on that play. If you can't get an assist when you take the ball, run 50 yards with it, being about 3 guys and setting it up perfectly for your teammate on a tap in because the pass is deflected then you might as well not award assists at all. Ridiculous.

    All Richie Laryea on TFC’s first goal tonight against Montreal Impact. Richie Laryea with an Alfonso Davies type run down the side of the touch line , turns on the burners and puts in a nice cross for Piatti to basically more or less tap in the net. This kid just continues to impress . If he keeps this up a move abroad to a decent league might be a reality .

    St Clair gets his shot, 4-0 clean sheet against RSL. Maybe a little lucky with the one that got away from him..looked like it was in to me, but didnt count. 3 saves, and Edwards got in for an assist late in the game.

    It's a charged world. We watch this game to get away, we are here to support the game in this country. There are a lot of Conservatives and Liberals on here and all of them have right and wrong ideas. There's another forum out there to argue about those things. Or if you really must, the off-topic section.

    I really don't understand the negative spin a few posters on here have on him, why all the hate for a Canadian kid? I must be watching a different game sometimes, once again I watched him very closely last night to see where all of this poor play is, his positioning was excellent, someone mentioned him being conservative, I'm sure those were directions from Vanney! His passing was very accurate, I haven't seen stats, he was always in space and a welcome outlet to receive a pass and start attacking play! The only poor part of his match were a couple of long range shots he skied but guess what, a multi million dollar Designated Player who is paid handsomely to score did the same thing!

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    The Alphonso Davies thread should be about his soccer, not the politics around refugee programs and whether or not that would hamper our talent pool. It is not like every refugee is a potential national team player anyways. No, he was right. You want to talk about that, by all means, just do it elsewhere. When you bring up politics, someone is going to get pissed off and offended. Someone is going to cross the line. It clutters threads unnecessarily. The cons outweigh the pros.

    Because they used up all their HG slots(29-30) with Nelson, and Marhsall-Rutty. All I know next year better be a clean out - Mullins, Zavaleta, Dorsey. I'm sick of watching TFC use these average guys at the expense of HG/Canadian talent.

    Drake and Beiber etc are out there flying the CDN colors and reaching millions. I dont care for the v-log expecially either, but it is cool to see 2 young CDN sports stars out there getting a millions views in a day. Stuff like this raises the "cool" profile of soccer for CDN kids. Whether us old fogies like it or not, the young generation like Tomori, Akinola, etc etc probably would pay attention to this.

    Liam Fraser

    I'll echo what others are saying in that I don't know what match some of you guys were watching. As pointed out in TSN's half-time analysis, Fraser was helping TFC to dominate the game in the first half, keeping his team in possession and playing some clever balls forward and helping to lead the press. Dos Santos saw this and so for the 2nd half instructed Teibert to go right after Fraser so that he didn't have time on the ball. So Vanney then made his adjustment by bringing on a different kind of player who would cover more ground up the field rather than being a cross between a third CB/right back. TFC didn't really play well after Fraser left the field (not helped by losing a lot on the left side when Laryea was taken off). One gaffe (where frankly, he shouldn't have been the last player back to begin with - at least one of the two CB's should have been backing him up) hardly negates all that.

    Richmond "Richie" Laryea

    I am loving the way Ritchie is playing this year. There was a moment early in the game when ZBG had the ball and was ahead of him upfield. Ritchie closes the gap almost immediately and broke up the play. I don’t want to debate the Davies-esque attributes, but he has been improving steadily and has shown a lot of pace and quality. Count me as a fan. Definitely a lock for a starting spot in the Nats based on current form. And since he is doing the work on the left side, he would be my auto choice at LB unless he really shows a drop off in quality. No need to play Davies back there when Ritchie could free him up to maraud further upfield. And the two of them combining on the left side with a speedy David in attack as well... spicy.

    Guys like him and ********** gave cover to every Canadian kid with another option to hold out as long as possible, with Canada being their last resort. Now, I can understand somebody choosing to do something that's in their best interests. However, have the balls to tell the truth about it. Owen 'I was always British' ********** and Jonathan 'I feel Dutch' De Guzman chose to lie about it and disrespect the country that gave them homes, and despite their Britishness and Dutchness, where they still choose to spend most of their time. For that, they can both get to ****. Don't need 'em, now. Don't want 'em.

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Ok many thanks for your replies on the MLS Below another link on “your kid”, it is from Sky Italy after Lyon-Bayern, there was Capello (who won as a coach several Serie A, Liga and Champions league) and Costacurta (who played in the defense of AC Milan and Italy in the 90s with Maldini and Baresi and wan several CL, serie A and was runnner up at 94 wc) and another pundit. https://video.sky.it/sport/calcio/champions-league/video/condo-capello-alphonso-davies-610241 From second 22 basically they say this: Pundit: Is it possible with all the Italians who live in Canada that nobody signalled him, and Bayern bought the kid? Capello: I called in November Sabatini (a famous Director of football who has worked in many serie A teams) and told him “there are very few people around who understand anything of football, how cannot they have notices this guy?” (they show a video) Here it is, look what a recover! Pundit: this one is a guy who can redifine the term of the LB role Capello: he is of another level, he also made two pass-through balls, he put Perisic in front of the keeper Technycal, physical qualities....really extraordinary Joirnalist (with Costacurta confirming almost loghing): no difficulties on the 1 vs 1, he accepts the duel

    One thing Canada has struggled with as a national team for years is having a deep player pool. We’ve all heard the unattached FC jokes for a long time but now we actually have many Options moving forward. Adding Yankov, Mitrovic,Brym and many other young players to the mix will only help us with strong squad competition. No walk ons anymore if they are willing to compete And commit call them up and let them fight for a spot

    I think a good first step would be for him to put his foot down and get rid of late 20's journeymen. Those guys are a luxury and give Vanney the easy out to throw a guy on thats been kicking around MLS for years and there is no risk to him. Surely at some point you need to trust the kids a bit and live with some growing pains eh? If they took Zav, Endoh and Mullins off that roster and gave Nelsen/Okello, Shaff/Perruzza, Dunn/Romeo the 500-1000min at least they would know if the kids were worth keeping around, and they could move on if they were not up to it.
