    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.

    Pathetic. And now we have a coach who won't push the federation for more games, which is the one person who usually would.

    Thank you @Ove for the chart. I have added the games from 2018 & 2019 together to show an even greater disparity for Canada in comparison to everyone else. 9 games for Canada is a lot more than last years 4! I joke, but it really isn't funny at all. We want to compete with the big 3 in CONCACAF. They played 18, 18 & 15 more friendlies than us in the past 2 years.

    This sums it up in a nutshell. Either way will be a challenge because we are Canada not Mexico. Play games to potentially get into the hex, or at least prepare for the “hunger games” if we fall short we would have some games to increase our preparation for the qualifying process.

    As fast as he is I think Liam might even been faster. I would like to see them both in a 50m dash. I honestly think Liam's pace can almost rival Alphonso's. 3 super fast players though, no doubt.

    Liam Millar is definitely a more polished player. I like Schaffleburg a lot, but Jacob needs much more work before we can seriously compare the two.

    Part of real nice move that ends with Ryan Kent scoring 2-0. Looks better in a central, slightly more withdrawn role.

    Point1: When? CONMEBOL WCQS are being played in March. In June they will be preparing for Copa America and will likely want to stay in South America and not flying so far away from home. (It's much easier in fact, for Canada to go to South America in June.) Point 2: Why? Do you think there is a realistic chance we will gain points against Brazil?

    Just to be a **** disturber, but if we go back a few more years...when Herdman was in charge of the women..did they still play more friendlies than the mens program?? I think I know the answer....so its not Herdman who is averse to playing friendlies.

    That is my hope too. He got plenty of playing time when he was playing to a more mid-table team in Chile. Colo-Colo just has too much depth; too many other players competing for the spot. He needs to move to a smaller team in Chile or perhaps a Canadian MLS team. Not sure how he would do in Mexico, I'd be surprised if any team (in the first division) there gave him a chance.

    I think Aribo will be on the right, Arfield more central. But they can interchange a bit like last game.

    The more I look at our squad I realize we have a very good problem. I can come up with maybe 2 different lines from the midfield and up where I can't decide what team is better. Better yet, our best players are all under 24 years old.

    Just because Bayern is currently playing Davies at left back doesn't mean that he's a natural-born defender. He's not, at least not at this stage of his career. Herdman needs to quit being a copycat, and just let the kid do what he does best, attack, attack, attack. Surely we have enough talent to fill in at left back, don't we?

    Nice to have Campbell confirmed. He was probably the most likely to get interest from elsewhere. The core of the team has stayed together training so I imagine they’ll all be back too. On another note, how do you interview an interim coach and not ask whether he’s staying on or not. Madness

    Valour - 2020 Season Thread

    Gutierrez - keep. When played in the proper role he was one of our better midfield options. Muenkat - cut (they did). By the end of the year he offered a bit more than mindless running, but not a lot more. Galvis - cut. Had one good game, but his other appearances ranged from ineffective to awful. Pena - keep. He's local and thus probably very cheap. Played left(?) back in a pinch, and seemed actually to run with a purpose.

    Yeah, I'd like to know too. Or know at what time in the podcast at least that he talks about it. I don't have an hour sitting around waiting to be used on a podcast just to confirm he will say something like "more games for minnows! Less games against minnows for giants! We all know there are only 6 teams in the conversation for a World Cup spot anyways". OK, I don't think he would say that last part.

    To be fair the Costa Rican league is still a few levels above the CanPL. Joel Campbell is still a regular for Leon in the Mexican League. They still have arguably about the same level maybe stronger still if you factor in our European guys wouldn't be there.

    I'd call Dejan Jakovic and Carl Haworth, both with Unattached F.C. How long is the break in Mexico? Did not think Cavallini would be available.

    The sizes are ridiculous. The jerseys are pretty form-fitting as well. If you are athletic and don’t mind tight clothes, maybe +1 size. If you’re like me (not so athletic and hates tight clothes) then you’ll need 2-3+ sizes. Hope this helps.

    Here's what the rule says on MLS' website, so I guess it just depends on whether any of his youth clubs qualify. I don't believe we ever actually got a list: Homegrown International Rule Any player who meets the requirements to qualify as a Homegrown Player as a member of an MLS club academy, either in the U.S. or Canada, or has met similar requirements as a member of a Canadian Approved Youth Club+ , will count as a domestic player (i.e., he will not occupy an international roster slot) on both U.S. and Canadian club rosters provided that: the player became a member of an MLS club academy, either in the U.S. or Canada, or a Canadian Approved Youth Club in the year prior to the year in which he turns 16; and the player signs his first professional contract with MLS or an MLS club's USL affiliate.

    The lower seed champion would arguably be better prepared. They would have the experience of playing (and winning) two-legged match ups. Meanwhile, the fourth placed hex team would be coming in relatively cold. I feel like our debate is missing this important talking point: The advantage goes to the lower seed champion. Also, if we are arguing for the hex in order to avoid south america, we are essentially hoping we can best honduras, costa rica and jamaica for that 1 spot. If things go perfect we can do it, but things rarely go perfect and this is a round none of our players or coaches have experience in. We are underdogs in the hex, to say the least. Both paths are gonna be hard as hell.

    See the post by the guys behind elsewhere in this forum: It's just a supporters group at the moment. Much like the dozens of other groups across the country. No owner, no stadium, etc. They're aiming for L1O first and, like so many others, dream of CPL one day setting up shop in their city. Not an expansion rumour. Just a bunch of fans saying "Please?"

    Your hate/dislike for Toronto is cute. It reminds me of when I was in Witchita, Kansas and how the people would talk about the big cities lol. But I'm with you man, Vancouver should get the winter games - if like @Kent said means Canada playing at home versus playing in Florida. Spring through Fall, i'll take ATCO, Saputo, Moncton, or the Wanderers ground to host any minnows we may have to play.

    I enjoy the NBL - PEI has a team (Island Storm). It is a fun product and a very enjoyable level of play. Would be interesting if the leagues merged to create a true D1 national basketball league.

    The Road to Qatar.

    The more I think about it, doesn't it make more sense (in terms of our chances of qualification) if we go through the loser tournament? Assume we make the Hex: Mexico, USA, Honduras, Jamaica, and Costa Rica. We need to be ready to go and grab points in every game starting in September 2020. That's our best guys needing to be at 100%. I think realistically we'll grab around 12 points. I think we'd lose to Mexico at home but we'd beat Honduras and Jamaica, and likely at least 1 win between Costa Rica and USA at home. Then the away trips would all be dreadful. Mexico, USA, Costa Rica all likely losses. What are the odds we march into Honduras and Jamaica needing a result and actually pull it off? I can't see us winning down there even though we have a superior squad. Better teams have gone down there (Mexico) and lost. Overall I think we pull: 0 points from Mexico, 1 or 3 points from USA, 1 or 3 points from Costa Rica, 3 or 4 points from Honduras, and 3 or 4 points from Jamaica. Looking at it from a worst case scenario we would grab 8 points.. From a best case scenario we would grab 14 points. We'd likely come 4th or 5th place. Assume we go through "Loser tournament" We'll draw 3 minnows first, beat up on them, gives us a chance to integrate some players if any are deserving of a spot (Canadian Premier League standouts or young players playing overseas) to give them a look to see if they could be useful later on. By the time we are in crunch matches our best players (Alphonso Davies and Jonathan David) will be even better than how they are now. They'll have had an extra year of development in Europe. Davies may have taken the starting spot at Bayern and David may have moved on to a bigger club in a bigger league. We can beat the minnows using younger players who need to be given opportunities. Such as: Kamal Miller, Liam Millar, Adonijah Reid, Jordan Perruzza, Mathieu Choiniere, Noah Verhoeven, Ballou Tabla, and Shamit Shome.

    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.

    Liam Millar

    Great to see Liam doing so well. I love watching him play, such an exciting player. Regarding Davies and a loan,: if Liam was in Liverpool's gameday 18 week in and week out and was making consistent league appearances, would you still prefer a loan for him away from that situation? I bet Liam wouldn't! It is almost as if Davies is "close enough" to the starting XI that a few injuries or a great run of form from him could earn him more minutes. In other word, he's 'close enough' and may as well stay. That said, I wouldn't be too upset with a loan move. It's just harder to push that option since Davies actually is playing week in and week out (usually) with Bayern. That could change though.

    Liam Millar

    So Liam’s 8th start out of 9 games A tough professional 1-0 win away to Hearts. Went 90 mins... Liam has done really well to cement himself into a starting spot in the SPFL not bad for just tuning 20. A goal and 2 assists along the way, would like to see that increase but it will come he’s getting chances. He is playing wide in a very tight defensive shape Killie has 7 clean sheets this season after crashing out of the europa league only Celtic have scored against them recently So important for young players to get mins Really get mins. Tough call Liam could have stayed and trained at LFC with limited opportunities(if any) but felt it was more important to get out and play... posted on another thread personally think Davies needs to get out on Loan (even half a season) and come back and smash it next summer at Bayern and push to get that starting spot. Not doing him any good playing 15-20 a week.. even if it’s amazing training. To each their own just my opinion...
