  1. According to his Instagram, he has joined SEG Football. His new agent is Heraldo Amado. SEG Football has a strong connection with Dutch players & the Eredivisie. Some of the former and current clients include Robin Van Persie, Mempis Depay, Marten De Roon, Kasper Dolberg, Daley Blind, Quincy Promes, Santiago Arias and Jasper Cillessen to name a few. Not sure exactly what this means, but the fact he is joining a new agency/agent, along with the departure of a head coach, his recent performances and rise in market value and lastly given his age, now might be the time he moves

    I don't think I've ever seen this board analyse the team of a CNT member as much as this, it is actually quite fascinating. I never looked at Radzinski's Anderlecht this way. Maybe some here really knew Stalteri's Spurs. Bayern is different because with the premium teams you tend to know a lot of the line-up anyways, often before a Canuck gets there. Or maybe we understand with David we have something special. BTW, realized today that Barça paid 30 million euros for Trincao, the Portuguese striker, who is as young as David (month older), and he has not scored yet. And no one is rea

    He actually drew both fouls that resulted in yellows to the same defender in the span of 10 minutes, that resulted in the red.

    Poor guy. Ten people all dissecting Davids contribution to Lille into minutia after watching the full game. Meanwhile MIlan turns in his regular great performance in the same competition and gets a shutout and people just "meh".

  7. My friend you did not hear him correctly; it's actually quite the opposite. (As you stated @canadianbacons , in this 7½ minute interview, the relevant part starts at around 5½ minutes) Bontis says: "So we do have a plan to actually get back into competitive meaningful games for early 2021. We need to do that Luke; we cannot afford to go into our March Qatar Qualifiers having not played meaningful matches... (then he talks bout the #CanWNT)" So Bontis is actually doubling down here on Camp Poutine and stressing it's importance. He gives himself an out if there are seriou

    Orlando picks up Millers contract option, so good news for him. Quietly had a good season for a playoff team. 9 starts, 12 games, got into both playoff games, starting the conf semis. Still playing almost all LB to fill a need, but was a CB all through college. Even if no CB has stepped up and made the starting job his own, its nice guys like Miller are progressing and might be able to step into canadas first team someday.

    David didn't seem to mind. Him and Ikone were hugging each other (and Yilmaz) after the goal. Seemed like Ikone was whispering something to David just as the camera panned away though... "Never get tf in my way ever again, kid. This is my team" lol

Rangers can also guarantee progression to the knockouts with a win today. [Group H] Jonathan David's Lille take on Sparta Prague. Kickoff on DAZN at 12:55pm ET.

    Here's an interesting stat. Stephen, a defensive midfielder, leads his team in scoring with 2 goals. He is actually tied with the striker Tanque for goals but also has an assist.

  14. Yeah. I'm disappointed with Henry, too, but he still was the best goalkeeper in the CPL last season. One blunder doesn't make a player a hopeless bum who can never be trusted again. He might learn from his mistake and be an even better goalkeeper after this.

RSCL took two leads in this one, but Arfield's goal meant Rangers took all three points out of this one, which also books their place in the UEL round of 32.

    I was multitasking for much of the game - didn't realize that David drew the foul that resulted in the red. That and the play-making pass on the first goal seems like a good days work, all things considered.

  30. We don't lock threads until a player becomes 100% ineligible; you know that! This thread had exactly that tone for many months last year. When I bumped it in Dec 2019, nobody had posted about him in 8 months. I still think my post from last year is not too inaccurate; people are way too optimistic about him. I was surprised to read that Nigeria had their eye on him ( well, Berhalter claims they do "Ayo Akinola, Canada is interested in, so is Nigeria as well." https://www.ussoccer.com/stories/2020/12/q-and-a-gregg-berhalter-discusses-december-camp-roster )

    For now, Vitoria should play alongside Henry or James. I thought it would be Cornelius eventually taking over that Vitoria spot, but now I'm not so sure, and I don't think Vitoria has a whole WCQ cycle left in him. Someone needs to step up.

    I like Pacos. I think Pepa is a really good manager, who knows what everyone excels at. They might not have the most talent, but everyone sorta chips in. They're clearly good at keeping play out of dangerous areas and grinding out wins. They have some real gems in Eustaquio and Luther Singh, who both should move on to better places in the future. I really hope he can get them to Europe though! Pacos seem to be every Liga Nos fan's second favourite team.

  38. Yann Fillion makes the step up in Finland from the Ykkönen (second tier) with Ekenäs up to the Veikkausliiga (first tier) with newly-promoted side Oulu for 2021 - believe it's also a club option for 2022. Ottawa-born keeper, put in quite a few games with EIF, in a 1A/1B situation with their second keeper Jiri Koski. Across the pair, it was enough to take the team up to 4th place in the Ykkönen in 2020. Will be interesting to see the keeper duel at Oulu next season (Finnish season starts back up in April, COVID-pending). From a Finnish friend: "Expectations: Backup

    It is not fanboy press, this is the error. It is direct interviews with US Soccer officials and the national team coaching staff. And his absolutely consistent path through their system without so much as a hiccup. It is as far from pie in the sky (a lovely turn of phrase coined by labour singer Joe Hill) as you might imagine. Ours is trite hype and illusion, with our goofy Herdman not insisting on playing matches and just coasting along smugly in his civil servant style; theirs is solid, grounded and with all the main players actively engaged. They have their fingers on all the buttons. We ar

  45. Bamba is a very good Ligue 1 player. Probably top 15 for his position. He is not reluctant to give up the ball but it has to be an obvious pass to a player who is clearly open, like the one to Yazici where he scored after VAR showed that he was onside. That said, Bamba doesn't see plays developing and doesn't make anticipatory passes especially when he is in full run with the ball. Also, when he's receiving a pass with his back to the goal with a defender on him, 90% of the time he takes two or three touches before he lays it back to a mid or one of the CB's. It's almost like a on

Clock would stop at the very least for anytime a player goes down and at substitution , and viola no more faking of injuries to kill time or guys taking forever to come off the field at substitutions!

    there are several examples of players that played youth soccer for other nations and then committed to us at the senior level....most recently Eustaquio and dare I say Corbeanu (he's filed his 1 time switch yes??? ) and then there was Wheeler... In any event we continue to twist the knife deeper with each post. Lets focus on the players that wear the red & white with pride. Signing off on this thread...

    Akinola playing for the USA just makes such a mockery of international football. It's hard to even take seriously. Literally raised in Canada, played soccer in Canada, went to school in Canada, his family had no issue taking handouts from the Canadian government, signed his first pro deal in Canada, continues to live in Canada... then it comes time to choose a national team and let's play for the USA. With character like that - good riddance. FWIW I would be eligible for the USA too. But never in a million years would a true Canadian do that. The happiest guy right now should be Tea
