    Ballou Tabla

    It's still a garbage move and for a coach to do that is an indictment against the coach, first and foremost. If you think he is your guy, then he goes on. If things don't work out, first of all, it is not all on him, a whole team is playing. The goals against are not even on his side of the pitch. And secondly, taking him out with a few minutes left proves nothing except you are not in control of your coaching decisions. It's low. For me, instead of saying Ballou is done, I'd say Henry is done.

    That was something amazing. I never thought that i would see the day that i would see or experience something like that in Canada. For that two leg tie, there were a total of a hundred thousand people who paid and came out to watch that (65k at the big Owe and 36k at BMO). Both were advanced sellouts. Lets think about that for moment. But even more importantly, even though i was only at the game at BMO, you could not spot anybody who were sitting on their hands. If you go back and watch the highlights of both games, listen to the background and atmosphere at both venues, you’ll never see that kind of charged atmosphere for a sporting event in canada.

    Careful. You've got guys here insisting that we should have 30 teams across 2 divisions. I think 12 stable CanPL teams, in addition to the 3 MLS sides and, eventually supported by 4 semi-pro, L1O-style leagues below is the Canadian soccer ideal space.

    Ballou Tabla

    They hired a name and gambled. Henry is still very unproven as a manager and MLS has been the undoing of other managers with pedigree like Garde and de Boer in recent years. That said all three were coming in on a downward trajectory hoping to rescue their careers. Henry came after bombing in his first managerial job. It was still a calculated hire and I don't blame Montreal. Before covid the crowd would have been well behind the team which would have helped. Unlike the previously mentioned, Henry at least played in the league and should have garnered a bit of understanding of how the league works. The substitution is a simple, albeit brutal message. Follow instructions and do the job you were asked. I fear he is making a bit of an example of Tabla but at the same time this is obviously what he wants Ballou to add to his game. Whether this approach will work with Ballou remains to be seen. For me, he seems like he would benefit more from the arm around the shoulder manager that can wrap him in cotton wool. But maybe that is how we got here with him though. Either way it's still up to Ballou to sort himself out. Change your game with what one of the greatest attacking players in the history of the game is telling you or spin the wheel and see if anyone else will take the gamble. In that case it is likely down before he has a chance of getting back up. I hope he takes his medicine and does what he is asked, I don't see what he has to lose in trying because right now he is throwing away his career.

    I highly recommend Twitter for keeping up to date on Canadian soccer news. Follow @Canucks_Abroad, @Division1A and @CanPLBrasil and you'll get inundated with news, quality highlights and analysis of Canadian players. The MLS teams, CanPL teams and @SigmaFC are good follows too imo. As is @onesoccer. Just because you're on twitter that doesn't mean that you need to post what you ate for lunch or get mired in the political discussion hellscape that also exists there.

    More Expect David to start tomorrow, the coach will not rotate the line up - the game is very important Says that David is fit physically but will give him pointers/coaching so he doesn't miss opportunities. Also says he has to try to get more involved -I'm interpretating this as to "not be afraid to try more stuff when he has the ball"

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Eh... it's an article about Gio Reyna's assist, not a Borussia Dortmund match report. These quick hit articles are just written for SEO purposes and are a very easy way to drive traffic (specifically, traffic from people who watch soccer). The point is to get it published fast, with a minimal amount of information, and possibly do an analysis piece later (by someone more qualified than the average desk jockey, like Matt Doyle). It's, what, 150 words at most and is written around a video clip that doesn't even belong to MLS. This is how outlets get away with using clips they don't own — by embedding the tweet from the rightsholder. I've literally spent more time explaining the article right now than the author did thinking about it, guaranteed.

    Ongaro plays 73 minutes in a 1-1 draw. Okello plays the last 25 minutes for Koge (0-1 loss). In Germany (D4), Halbouni with another start for Werder II. They beat Oberneuland 4-1. Three consecutive starts for Halbouni, 7 points. Not too bad a start. Also in D4, Daniel Stanese resurfaced at VfR Aalen. He entered in the 53rd on Tuesday, playing to a 1-1 draw. His first game for them this year.

    Kristian Jack interview

    Good point KJ made about every match matters in European and world football leagues. Unmatched by North American leagues is the celebration of a goal especially when you're away supporter. And the lows are really low and again unmatched by North American leagues. In North American pro sports leagues, the validity of a match can be questioned. Too many games are meaningless. KJ views regular season of North American leagues as more of a pre-season. The actual sport is seen in the playoffs. But yet, people pays big bucks to see regular season games. So in MLS, a loss can be shrugged off. It's just becomes a night out. Complacency is his biggest worry for the MLS. If fans get too complacent, MLS will die of boredom or never taken seriously as a top league. Wants to see pro/reg and at least less teams in playoffs or split season for MLS to get to the next stage. 2016 playoffs between Impact/TFC was the closest KJ saw the North American soccer matching European football culture - wants to write a book about it. I also think this applies to the endless CPL discussions about appealing to the casual North American sports fan such as by wanting more teams in the playoffs. Maybe nice boost for teams in the short run but you're basically chipping away at the fabric of the league over the long run. This discussion starts around 30 mins.

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    I guess he’s “been out of form” in training. The game they lost to Hoffenheim, the entire team was dreadful. Other than that, he’s been fine and was very strong vs Dortmund in the Super Cup. I have a feeling this has more to do with Hernandez (never been a fan) causing a fuss that he hasn’t been getting playing time. Which is fair, I suppose. But Davies was an instrumental part of the team winning a treble. So he kinda earned it, no? No matter his age. Being out form is kind of a joke since they literally just won the Champions League and they’ve played a handful of games since (and hardly any important games). In general, the team has been pretty flat (which is to be expected). Sure, give Alphonso a bit of a rest mentally and physically but calling him “out of form” publicly doesn’t sit right with me. Perhaps I am being an over-protective, coddling parent-type to our national hero here but feels like it’s not how you treat a player who has been a star for you and literally just turned you from a relative nobody to a “superstar manager”. I get that squad rotation is a thing. And I also get that handling a bunch of stars egos like Hernandez is also a thing. But don’t come out and say this kids form has dipped when the entire team has looked very average. This may be an overreaction for having an inferiority complex as a Canadian football fan but I don’t know. Again, doesn’t feel right.

    CPL new teams speculation

    Straight from the mouth of former TVA Sports journalist Nicholas Martineau and current co-founder of Obelisq agency. -European clubs have a better perception of CPL than USL due to the "Division 1" Status. MLS Next will seek Division 3 sanction at the USSF. So, I don't buy that MLS Next will be more attractive than CPL one bit

    If I am Liam Fraser I would not want to leave TFC right now. I want to get paid in line with a player that will play regularity off of the bench (200K) and would be hoping to get more playing time just like Osorio and Delgado did over time. If TFC made the financial commitment, then I would trust I would get playing time moving forward. If they wanted to pay me only 100K I'd look for another team. Any move to a similar quality team would leave him further down the depth chart than he is now.

    I think we are collectively overthinking it a bit. He is a 20 year old guy in a new league in a new country. He just made a big step up in terms of competition and right now the bounces aren’t going his way. He is in a rut and may even get dropped to the bench, but he has all the tools and we know he has the drive. I think it is way too early to lament the move to Ligue 1. There is no guarantee that he wouldn’t be having the same issues in Germany or wherever.

    Stephen Eustaquio

    Time for weekly Eustaquio gushing: He stayed further back today so play didn't flow through him as much as usual. What was interesting, is that his tackling/aerial duels seem like they've really improved, the few chances he's had to show it. He's not very big, and tackling has never been his strength, so it seems like he's been working on it. Eustaquio's already incredibly well-rounded in possession, so if he can add that to his game, he could be really scary.
