    Canadian soccer fans will always be able to prove Henry is not dependable by waiting for one mistake and ignoring the rest of the man's play.

    While discussions regarding COVID-19 can be on topic in this thread when relating to the logistics of playing qualifying matches, the last 15 or so posts (that I have deleted) devolved into a debate about the illness itself and personal attacks. Please stay on topic in here.

    I can't say how I know but I think W/C qualifying will begin in October, we will have a vaccine by the end of the year, we will qualify for 2022 and last but not least I will win Lotto Max and all the booze is on me at our next Men's qualifier.⚽😁

    Leeds United is a Legacy club like Nottingham Forest. They were the the best club in England in the 60-70s basically the Don Revie era they were runners up in two European Cup finals and won numerous league titles and cups. They won the last first division in 1991 before the premier league started. They hve fallen on hard times in Recent years but have one of the largest fan based in England outside of the top 6. There is a great doc on Amazon that goes into Leeds United. Worth a watch. They are an Elite club The premier league has a different level of physicality and pressure. If things don’t go your way after 5-6 games especially as a striker( ask Morata at Chelsea) u can be written off. So will be a real challenge but they hve a world class manager and a very good team which they will definitely be looking to improve im not saying Leeds is the right fit for Jonny or not Just wanted to be clear they are a BIG club and with Bielsa in charge and the right amount of money don’t right them off.

    Trabzonspor has had their ban upheld by CAS and therefore are not eligible for tournaments next season. Therefore Besiktas has been confirmed as a Champions League participant. They will start in the 2nd qualifying round of the league path.

    I dont get the contingent that thinks teams wont care etc etc they'll be games where only one team has anything at stake. These teams might only get a 7 game season and then a couple v-cup games...and thats it until next year. Every player lucky enough to get on the field should be playing their guts out. And any manager who thinks they'll just show up, tank some games and be back next season is crazy. You want to keep your job, the team better not be an embarassment (looking at you Gale). And if you want a shot at a better league or a CMNT call up(Didic/Zator, Pantemis/Carducci, Petrasso/Bustous/Ongaro etc) you better make the most of what might only be 7 games. I would think the stakes are high enough no one is going to take a game off.

    I think people need to pump the brakes on the Doneil hating. He's a solid player, definitely making a CMNT roster any day of the week. He's not perfect but has a lot to offer and always seems to come with the right attitude. Was one of my favorites when he was with the Caps

    Wow, some of the reactions. Because the graphic design standard in Canada is a really high level, come on. People put up with pathetic design day in day out, wear cookie cutter clothes from the racks at big box stores, then they do a shirt for a 10 game tournament that is radically different than anything ever seen, at an unnecessary development cost, ensuring it'll be an amazingly specific commemoration shirt for a very unusual season, and people are raging, it's all fire and brimstone. You are not even going to get to wear one of these to a game, you dopes.

    There aren't a ton, but a few have had a decent go at it. - Mozzi Gyori played with a few clubs in NA and Europe. I used to play with him when he was 12 and joined his dad (Cshaba, a former Yugoslov pro) in a local pick-up game. Mozzi's older brother Shaul was killed in a car accident at the age of 17 and everyone expected him to turn pro as well. - Lewis Page played pro soccer domestically and briefly in England but has established himself as a great coach. I worked in the office beside Lewis a few years ago. - Paul Craig played with FC Edmonton in NASL. Don't know too much about him. - Ibrah Sanoh plays with the HFX Wanderers and before that tore up the Canadian Collegiate soccer scene with the Holland College Hurricanes. I played indoor against Ibrah and his brother played on my team for a bunch of years (and coached one of my kids). Can't think of a 5th, but watching the talent of kids now coming up through the system and their access to elite training streams, I am confident there will be more in the future

    Doneil Henry

    Yeah but 18 games into the season, the first post about his play is "look he fell and it led to a goal". How long does a guy have to play relatively mistake free (no red cards/penalties etc) before people start to ease up? Other than Jakovic we dont have anyone playing regularly, not James, Cornelius, Vittoria Miller, so they dont have opportunities to make any mistakes/goofs.

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    So, I see on the program guide that Optus Sport, the local rights holder, is replaying the CL group stage match between Spurs and Bayern in London. The match was played at the start of October. I put it on just before halftime and Davies is nowhere to be seen. Can you imagine a big game now where Bayern leave the Phonz on the bench? Let us never forget how meteoric his rise has been over the last 10 months.

    OH Leuven lose 4-1 to Beerschot and 5-1 on aggregate in a series that means little since they both go up. Borges did not make the bench and I haven't seen his name pop up at all in their friendlies leading up to this. Not sure if he is injured or just having a tough time breaking into the 18. Hoping he puts his head dowb and keeps working hard and manages to impress enough to win some minutes in the top flight next year.

    It is so frustrating. I have a lot of time for Doneil. He has the tools and we all want him to just put them together to be consistent because he could be an absolute beast for us. He still hasn't reached peak for a defender but he hasn't cut out the silly errors and I don't know that will happen at this point. He can still excel and be a huge player for Canada either way but it depends on who he is partnered with. The right fit and players around him can help.

    I hope so too. That or... ...how about that German B.2 side? That would be a higher level than André Hainault and Adam Straith. Really tough day for Scott I'm sure, but lots to be proud of. Really has had a "journeyman" type rise. As far as I understand from @Ian Kennedy , didn't go through a MLS/USL/CanPL academy. Didn't go through a European academy. Didn't go through a South American academy like Osorio and Cavallini. Went from the German 6th division all the way to the cusp of promotion to the Austrian Bundesliga in about what...5 years? The man's got determination.

    Herdman new head coach

    I still haven't let this go. I really do not understand it. Didn't he ask the players whether they want to attack the US or sit back? I don't care so much that he asked the players, because I don't think that approach is inherently bad. What I do have a problem with is how he set the team up to attack. He figured that Davies at LB brings opportunity to get more attackers on the field, but Davies is our best attacker and he was on the backline. Furthermore, he violated his own principal of playing Davies at LB against the weaker teams. Against the teams we dominate possession against. I find this difficult to reconcile. And then on top of all of that, like you said, he took something that worked amazingly well and threw it away. We really let the USA off the hook and it is a damn shame.

    Herdman new head coach

    My issue has been how he has often set up the team to fail and then played it off like it was a good thing. Davies at LB had been horrible for Canada, and he refused to accept that in post game pressers. We lost to Mexico when he played that ridiculous formation that included Larin at wing. He took what worked amazingly well against the US and ruined it by putting Davies at LB and we got demolished 4-1. He has time to prove me wrong but so far he's 1-3 in big matches for Canada and he doesn't seem to be a reflective kind of guy.

    Feyenoord would be a nice move for Larin. I can see him scoring a lot of goals in Holland. Should get European football there, and/or challenge for silverware domestically. All the big leagues scout Holland. What's not to like?

    I've been looking around today to see the reaction from each country and El Salvador is the only one that's angry. Even the salvadoran news site El Grafico gathered reaction from all the other central american countries plus Curacao and they were all very happy with the changes. Even the Americans and Mexicans are happy with it. Everyone's happy but one. To conclude, lots of teams hated the old format and only one team hates the new format. Progress!

    Doneil Henry

    I like Henry and have no qualms about him being called up. I think people here exacerbate his mistakes because if he could minimize or eliminate them the sky would be the limit. If he was a bit healthier and mitigated mistakes, he may have stuck at West Ham. There's a reason they bought him. Unfortunately it didn't work out, but all things considered I think Henry is one of our best CBs. Great to see him starting at a good level in the K League 1.

    It really has the smell of match fixing to it. Letting 5 first team players have the day off and then losing 9-0 and the other team wins promotion on goal difference! The Austrian 2nd Division, during Covid must have some pretty desperate cash strapped teams. I’d check the betting action on this and other financial records. It’s way too fishy

    On paper, we're superior to Costa Rica and can hang with the U.S. Making the Ocho and then qualifying from there has to be the expectation for Herdman and this team.

    New away kits...

    I'm once again blown away at how opinionated people are about kits. For me, it's so clearly subjective that I'm shocked when people scream bloody murder about it while there's hardly a peep about the actual footballing side of things most of the time. I would love if someone would explain why it means so much to them. BTW I like the Pacific kit, and I'll probably buy into this Collective thing instead of the OneSoccer subscription because of it.

    I might be in the minority here, but I think every single away kit looks better than their home kit. I absolutely love the York 9 map. All three blue & black kits look great, too.

    Lots of info here too. From TSN, of all places: https://www.tsn.ca/source-canadian-premier-league-to-play-2020-season-in-charlottetown-1.1501390 Some notable points: first game will be Forge vs Cavalry; players can opt out, though none have yet; and there may be spectators, depending on conditions and regulations. Also all games will be on OneSoccer, but they may have games on other networks. I'm so happy. Finally it's happening. 😁

    He would have to be a moron frankly to not commit to Canada (if we even want him). He had his "dream" of playing for his family's country and he'll never be back. He has played just 69 professional games as a soon to be 28 year old... by comparison Alphonso Davies had played 70 matches for Vancouver prior to his 18th birthday (not including USL matches). Doneil Henry who is injury prone as well has played 165 pro matches. Now he has a chance to play a big part with Canada's golden generation and a guaranteed World Cup (if he holds up).
