    Hello to everyone in this thread! I have been a Voyageur member for a long time although i never post anything, I am from Mexico, and currently live in Mex, i used to live in Canada for a couple years long time ago, 2002 - 2003 for part of my Highschool, anyway i just wanted to say that i have been following Canadian Soccer since, as i played in my senior years of highschool for the school team and i must say that back then i was really impressed by the potential that there is in Canada, and i love to see that finally it seems that the Canadian soccer is getting to the masses, this game is going to be HUGE for that!!! I have barely even been able to sleep this whole week i just cant wait for it to start, today is the day!!! Wish you guys luck, I hope that tonight we get a good and fair game. PS. Obviously today's game is hard for me beacuse I love Canada so much, and tonight I have to cheer for Mexico, but dont get me wrong in every other chance when its not against the country i was born in, I am Canadian in my heart. ohh... other thing i know some of you are comming to the Azteca game next week, i dont live in Mexico city but i have family and friends there, if there is anything you might need or you guys get in trouble or anything just give me a call I promise i will try to help out (cellphone / whatsapp +52 1 4772077900), and also if you ever come to central Mexico to the state of Guanajuato give me a call, perhaps we could go out for a beer and have a good FUTBOL!! chat. take care guys!

    Scott Kennedy

    I spoke to Scott this morning. His physical therapy and treatments (while taking longer than expected) have been successful and he's feeling strong again. He will be back into regular training next week. We expect to see him back on the pitch with the team, in a game situation, before the December break. Despite missing him at CB, SK Austria Klagenfurt is performing well this season and they continue to hold onto 1st place. We're looking forward to seeing Scott on the field helping to generate winning plays, stopping the opposing offence and scoring goals.

    Pretty much if he chooses Canada then it will be good for Canada but if he choose Ivory Coast (Cote d’Ivoire) then that wouldn’t be as good as if he chose Canada but if he chooses Canada he may get to play in a World Cup because we are hosting (co-hosting with Mexico and USA) in 2026 but it’s also possible Ivory Coast (Cote d’Ivoire) make the 2022 World Cup (Qatar) or even maybe as well the 2026 World Cup (Canada, Mexico and USA) but it is also possible that Canada makes the 2022 World Cup (Qatar) but that is still to be decided and it’s possible that he could make Canada better if he chooses Canada instead of Ivory Coast (Cote d’Ivoire) because I’m sure they’re looking at him because they would potentially want him to play in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup (Qatar) and maybe even in qualifying for the 2026 World Cup (Canada, Mexico and USA).

    It isn't about aiming high or low. It's about aiming long. It's about it being ours and making it the best it can be. If someone feels the need to compare it to anything, they are already missing the point.

    Bookmark this page if you can't watch live. I'm going to record the stream and post it here with no results. As always, I don't know if my laptop will die mid-match/upload but I'll try! I should have it up around 10pm EST, if it doesn't work and the CSA archives the match on YouTube I'll post a link here.

    Cavalry FC Season Thread 2019

    While I’m here, perhaps I should give an update on the supporters scene in Calgary, since this is supposed to be a Canadian soccer supporters board. The scene is thriving in Calgary, and has surpassed any expectations I could have dreamt up before the season started. Although we don’t have official membership in the Foot Soldiers, we’ve gone from about 25 people last year to over 350. Not only do we have section 200 sold out every game, but the supporters scene has grown into sections 201 and 109, which have become pseudo supporters sections on their own. We’ve gone from having me try to drag people out to talk banners and flags, to people designing and bringing their own made on their own time. There is a real buzz around this club and around the atmosphere in the stadium. I would argue that Cavalry has the loudest supporters scene in the CPL right now (though I hear great things about Halifax, Hamilton and Winnipeg), and games such as those against the Whitecaps are making people take notice. Even the main grandstand is loud. Last year I would have watched the Voyageurs Cup on my couch, this year we packed a bar to the brim. And the scene after the final whistle was incredible! I think we’re slowly but surely turning Calgary into a soccer city...

    SK Austria Klagenfurt had a test match earlier today against SK Sturm Graz, a 1st level Austrian Bundesliga team. Sturm Graz are currently in 4th place in the 1st league. Klagenfurt lost 2:1. Scott scored the only goal for Klagenfurt and played 90 minutes. The game can be watched on You tube. Easy access through the Sturm Graz Facebook page.

    The article was just updated with the following: Editors note: In a subsequent email to Sportsnet, the CPL confirmed that in addition to the roster requirements mentioned above by David Clanachan that another rule mandates that a minimum of three domestic players on each team must be under the age of 21 AND those players must play a minimum of 1,000 minutes per season. That's a bit of a change. Definitely working on development of young players. I think this works as extra push to keep on some of the U-Sports draftees beyond training camp. Will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    Derek Cornelius

    No guys like Cornelius should stay where they are in Europe where they have a lot more opportunities and will be getting better training. CPL shouldn't be taking guys on a good career path already and putting them on a less good career path, it should be for getting all the guys who aren't on good career paths and giving them better career paths.

    Some photos from the first leg of Al Classico. Attendance was 3205 on a cold and windy afternoon. Both of the main stands were mostly full, and lots of people stood around the fencing, although many people left at halftime and throughout the second half due to weather and the mismatch on the pitch. Even though I really want to brag about the result of the game, it was secondary to establishing a rivalry that will greatly benefit both a Calgary and Edmonton CPL club. Being at the match has really reminded me of a love for the live game that has been so often forgotten about with all the negativity on this board. I like that I can walk through a rival's supporters section multiple times and get banter and a lot of laughs when I banter back. I like that I can run into the players of former parents and talk to them as if they are old friends. I like that players like Moses Danto and Bruno Zebie and Nathan Ingham come with us on the bus ride to the game. I think the community aspect of these clubs is paramount to growing the game when CPL launches. Game on.

    Most incredible part of the highlights was seeing that we found an opponent where the head coach is even shorter than Herdman.

    Fikayo Tomori

    Probably because he is f***ing English. You expect the CSA to know about every kid in the world with some tie to Canada? We are going to miss some kids that are 14,15,16 years old. Why didn't they call him up to more games? Because he didn't want to be called up, he would rather play for the country he's lived in for 99% of his life. You expect every player with some random connection to Canada should automatically want to play for us but that is not how it f***ing works. Unsurprisingly kids who spent all of their lives living in Italy or England want to play for those countries instead. Acting as though some U15/U17 friendlies is going to want to make some English kid give up his dream to play for Canada is bananas. I hate to say it but there is nothing we could have done to get Tomori. The only way he would play for us is if he was 100% not good enough for England (and likely Nigeria).

    Notice I didn’t say a thing in any of my posts about him that’s not mine to say did I want him to play yes do I think his pace could have add something yes But Liam needs to work harder and do more to try to get in the team that’s all. That’s the msg I send him everyday. Keep ur head down keep working. His time will come. He’s still young. ... he loves Canada and being part of something special we are building it’s the long game for me...

    Liam Millar

    Remember, this guy is only 20 and already he is in his second season as a regular in the SPL for an above average club. He is also on loan from Liverpool. In past cycles, that resume would have made him THE number one prospect for our program. He just gets overlooked because we have Davies and David. We are kinda spoiled with the youth coming through right now. What Millar is doing is impressive, no doubt about it. I feel we were more excited about Aird than Millar and he still hasn’t had a run in the SPL. It was just because our program was in much worse shape when Aird was Liam’s age. Once Millar starts putting the ball in the net people will start changing their tune, I think.

    Pulisic is a big loss but let's not get ahead of ourselves. We are still the underdogs, or at least we should go into the match with that mentality. I hope the players, fans and media keep feet firmly on the ground. We can't afford to celebrate before the ball has been kicked. They still have some dangerous players. It is fine to up the optimism but it won't be easy. We shouldn't get carried away.

    Shame on TSN and Sportsnet

    If anyone was watching the ESPN2 feed of the match, they mentioned something regarding TSN and Sportsnet declining the option to show the game tonight. If that is true, both broadcastors should be embarrassed. Twenty years ago when each only had one tv channel and no ability to stream games on their websites maybe you could give them a pass but considering TSN showed multiple Euro qualifying games on their channels and website today, they should have put on this game. It's sad how TSN bends over to show MLS games (including some without Canadian teams) but can't support the MNT.

    Someone just randomly asked me about my Forge FC kit today the corner store. Asked about watching the games and I told him about the package on CBC. Said he'll have to check them out since the EPL is off tv. Felt really cool that someone asked about it.
  38. 14 points
    This is pretty cool: It is incredible that our NT has players who train or have trained often with the like of Ronaldo, Messi, Salah, etc. Maybe none of them will ever play for the first team, but regardless, this experience will stay with them forever.

    CPL Stadium Thread

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nU74A8RCYPs Was just watching a video of FC Midtjylland and was surprised that venue only holds 11,800 people. The noise level trumps anything I have seen in MLS minus a packed Saputo maybe. Scale this baby anywhere from 12,000 to 16,000 seats and you will have a blue print for the first permanent SSS built for a Canadian CPL club. Looks expandable to if need be afterwards.

    That's why this league will be much better than people anticipated and at a faster rate. Untapped talent that was ignored by MLS academies and/or thrown aside. CPL will capture the rest and they are more likely to find more gems than MLS Academies

    After great reflection ( : I have decided even as TFC season ticket holder I will be at the Forge York 9 CPL opener. Figure there will be about 20 other times I will be down at BMO this year, so what's the big deal with missing one all in the name of Canadian footy.

    Listen all of you! I live in Sofia and in Canada and I can walk to great bulgarian league soccer matches. Can you? If you have not watched it live you must shut your mouths. When I am not teaching at the University I randomly correct peoples grammar on the street. Your ignorance of Bulgarian football is shocking. Grizzly is correct, you are all vaguely racist and ignorant. The use of the transitive property for comparing football went out of style with communism in Bulgaria. You must be a football genius like myself to understand the complex ebb and flow and tactical brilliance in the live game that does not show on tv.
