    Chills - two Canadians in the top 10. Not sure how that makes me feel. Having one on the list would be insane, ridiculous and exciting. Having two on there is just weird and uncomfortable. Who are we? What have we become?

    York9 - Season Thread 2020

    I said this on the Y9 thread on Discord as well, but any player with Copa Libertadores experience, especially so recently, I'd expect any such player to come to CPL and be a top-level player here, if not flat out kill it. The CPL is just not that high a level at all, I'd fully expect the Peruvian top flight to be leaps and bounds above CPL as of 2019, the number of individual mistakes I saw on a weekly basis in the CPL was astounding at times. Hoping 2020 is higher quality with the relatively high quality signings for CPL we've seen, such as Ugarriza. Just for a simple comparison's sake, looking at the 2018 season of some of our Y9/CPL faves. Telfer had 1 goal for TFC/TFCII all year. Gattas was barely playing in Chile's D2. Borges had 1 goal in L1O. List could easily go on. Very happy to see signings like Ugarriza and Vasconcelos and the rumoured Bouka-Moutou. I love Y9 not because it's some high-quality pro football, but because it's our local pro club in our local pro league that we absolutely must support if we want Canadian soccer to grow. And it's been really fun to see a club build up from ground zero.

    The tournament is March 20 to April 1. Liverpool need 4 wins to clinch the title and their 4th match is March 21... so the earliest he could get in following that is April 5 (where they play City away so not happening). Basically, he won't have a chance to get into a game until this tournament is over anyway and a good chunk of it overlaps with the international break anyhow. I think he'll be there (or with the MNT) - I'd be shocked if he wasn't.

    York9 - Season Thread 2020

    I don’t get this... what’s wrong with signing a guy and trying to rehabilitate his career? Plenty of clubs sign players that haven’t quite planned out, but that they think show talent or potential. Maybe with a new club and a new chance, this guy can fulfill his potential. If that’s the case, York 9 will have signed a good player without much of a cash outlay compared to the alternative.

    I wouldn’t want him at a lower level Premier League team. He won’t get any service and will stagnate a bit. It has to be with a team that’s playing Europa or Champions League I think. I suspect he will move to Germany to be honest.

    In terms of omissions not many but Adonijah Reid would have been one, not sure how much he's played recently though which could explain it. Axel Desjardins and Shaan Hundal being other potential omissions.

    Well if his stock wasn’t low he wouldn’t be coming to CPL - that’s just reality at this stage. Catch lightning in a bottle and move them on. He has played his whole career in the Peruvian first division and had one bad stint with his latest club ... that will happen. At his previous club he was great so it’s not hard to see a 23 year old bouncing back...

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Toronto Sports Network should for once help the cause here. Tons of bs crap on their landing page until you scroll way down to find one article on the game. This is just ridiculous Its not like this is some kid who's been buried in a European academy since he was young and can barely find Canada on a map. He made history playing here in Canada before he left and proudly flies the flag always. C'mon Canadian, get your **** together This kid has more charisma than Bianca, McDavid, Shapa, RJBarret whoever combined

    Not sure this link will work, but the lead video on AS online is the Davies assist, with this headline: https://as.com/futbol/2020/02/25/videos/1582667749_105131.html 19 años y hace un sprint que va a los anales de la Champions: huele a prodigio de los de 150M€ Which is something like "19 years old and his sprint will go down in the history books of the Champions League: has the scent of one of those 150 million euro prodigies"

    The Road to Qatar.

    With two of the brightest stars in Concacaf in Davies and David, it would be a real travesty for Canada and the Concacaf federation if we fail to make the Hex. That would be a total lost opportunity to showcase the new generation of talented players that are being developed ...the type of players that can raise fans from their seats with performances that result in standing ovations. The CSA really needs to do everything in their power to try and make this happen.....it's all hands on deck.

    I have a sinking feeling that we will all be disappointed with who is called in the end. Release a top 50 list with some real talents only to call TFC 2 in the end.

    Come on hermano... you're better than that. Playing for Alianza is a bigger task than any club in the CanPL. Not only that but he was a backup at best. With less pressure and no toxic media like Peru's constantly attacking him, he will have a better time. Not only that but a lot of players that have joined CPL have had poor scoring records in their own leagues before joining. Look at Gattas. Prime example. He's gonna do well here. Trust me.

    The fans adore him and the players love him..... his personality is infectious. He is an asset for Bayern on and off the field. I wonder what impact he will have on club merchandising, especially with their International fans. I bet sales of his #16 jersey are moving up with each match.

    According to Scott's dad, he is hurt again so maybe that is why he is not on the list? Would be great if Liam Millar plays, but I have my doubts given he has a chance to play again for Liverpool if they clinch early, or in Cup play.

    I was checking them out on sofifa.com (site lists player ratings and tracks their updates in the FIFA video game). Davies FIFA profile was #1 most viewed and I think David's was #3 yesterday. So the FIFA gamer fanatics are paying attention as well.

    That is what prevents me completely careening down the road of optimism. Seeing Tomori not make the squad, again, grinds my gear a bit but then again Sterling could be playing for Jamaica.

    Well with Borges gone from the Forge, who haven't signed anyone of note this off season btw, I could see him end up there. Fisk mentions wanting to take the next step up and show himself for the national team... where better than Hamilton with Champions League matches and a chance to defend a title. I know Ottawa has the financial flexibility but are they really a step up from Pacific FC?

    Add in Millar on the other side if he can develop at Liverpool and try cracking into that team. It'll be tough but I genuinely believe he has the potential to make it there. Davies - David - Millar... I don't care who you are, you're going to be scared of that

    Can we just move on from Morgan. He's meat and potatoes at this point. Seems like a good dude and hopefully he has a good career but he should be no where on our national team radar. We're better than that

    Extremely tough to narrow that list down to 20! Brutal in fact. I am up to what I would think are 18 locks but they could be easily interchangeable still need to add two more CB's and a fullback and CM to make the squad more balanced. I find it a bit weird we pick 50 but have to narrow it down to 20 by March 11. The squad won't get together until March 13th. I guess it is now a case of the CSA finding out whether clubs will allow the players to come or not? From CSA "As an all-in-one qualifying campaign with both a pre-camp and pair of matches that fall just outside the FIFA window, several players may not be eligible for the official competition because they will not be released by their professional clubs."

    ^^^ Also Tabla, Habibullah, Nelsen, Bair, Fraser....you cant overlook that the MLS academies are helping lots of those kids become the top prospects. Not all kids are like David and develop completely outside the CDN MLS academies and jump straight to europe. Eventually the logjam trying to make the MLS roster for 17-20 year olds is inevitable and that might stall some kids out, but thats where CPL can step in and let kids like Campbell get the playing time they need to take it up a notch. There is more than one way to skin a cat, but I'm glad those CDN MLS youth teams are pumping out a lot of pro players.

    Does this work for you? I don't know if BT Sport is region-blocked in Canada, but you could probably watch it with a UK VPN. Anyway, almost teared up last night watching that. He was trending #1 over here for a good few hours after the match with heaps of praise. Absolutely swelling with pride. Lots of the top clubs are talking about him in their respective forums as a top-5 LB in the world, how they'd kill to have him, how he'll name his price on his next contract, etc.

    That's what I thought as well. He sounded like he was going to a topteam (that would be Cavalry or Forge). However, it was probably just about getting 10k more per season, which is his right and makes sense with a girlfriend and kid.

    The only thing that would have made it better would have been Pulisic getting shut down by Phonzie all game. He’s so good every time he goes forward, other than the fast breaks he also dangled a few defenders in a tight space a couple of times. This game actually reminded me of 17 year old Davies vs MLS defenders.

    Valour - 2020 Season Thread

    He cites the departure of Bustos, Petrasso, and LBG, without even the hint of an acknowledgment that these moves will have opened up a big chunk of salary space. He seems to think that is too much money to be spent on a defender, after going on TV last year and over and over (fairly) dumping on the Valour back line. He doesn't seem to think it's reasonable to make a turnaround in a year or two in an 8 team league in its second season with massive turnover across the board. I think he posted hastily and regrets being so categorical.
