    Axel Desjardins

    Hey guys, Axel's brother here. I thought I would update his situation. First of all, the promotion was something else. He said the night of the game til the next morning was the best time of his life. He said it gave him a taste of what it's like to win something for a team, for the fans, and for a city. Especially in Spezia, where the fans are fanatics. Secondly, with a promotion in a first division, there comes a lot of changes. They have a new director, and everyone at the club is getting re-evaluated this week, including Axel. Spezia will decide if they want to keep Axel, send hi

  2. Just want to clear some items on this thread. Lucas was born in Toronto, grew up in Woodbridge and made a name for himself at Sporting's Toronto Academy who at the time was being headed by another (unrelated) Dias who played several seasons in Liga NOS. He's always been on Canada's radar, and TFCs for that matter during Dichio's amateur scouting days. He denied their academy at 10 in lieu of knowing full well he was going to be Sporting's Toronto academy's first import to their main academy in Lisbon and sure enough by 11 he was requested to join the main academy. He's been/be

  3. I'm the real Scott's Dad (not "slim shady") and yes I'm incredibly proud of him and happy for him. Thank you. He's a wonderful human being. He makes it easy to be proud. His ability on the pitch is an extension of who he is. I've previously shared a story about how, as a young player (12 or 13), when Scott led the Calgary West team to win the Provincial Championship, his coach stated some prophetic words, he said: "Scott, it is said that one's true nature (good/bad) surfaces under intense competition. Some crumble, some shrink back, others will compromise their integrity and values to wi

    Very happy for him. He needs to play first team football in a tight competitive environment with a good coach that will make him a better player. He had a good chat with Bowyer before signing and the goal is to get promoted. End of. A good driven team really good for his development... another step on his pathway...

  6. Jahn hasn't yet posted the game highlights or the game, so I don't have much to add. Scott did send me a note. He was disappointed to leave the game but he said he'll be fine ... nothing serious. Nice to see him in the starting line up!

    Update: SCOTT KENNEDY STRENGTHENS JAHNELF CENTRAL DEFENDER (23) COMES FROM AUSTRIA KLAGENFURT Scott Kennedy (23) will join SSV Jahn Regensburg until June 30th, 2023. The German-Canadian central defender was most recently active with the Austrian second division team SK Austria Klagenfurt and has been with the team in the one-week training camp in Bad Gögging since Tuesday.

    We're excited to watch Scott take his game to the next level. Throughout his career, he has played with focus and discipline, consistently improving his skills and the speed of his game. We do not know what Regensburg's plans are for him, but we expect he will play LCB. At Klagenfurt Scott's main position was LCB. However, he also played RCB (if required), midfield and, when they needed extra scoring power, he was an extra striker. As a young player, when Scott led Calgary West to winning the Provincial Championship, his coach stated some prophetic words, he said: "Scott, it is said that

    Axel Desjardins

    Hello. I am excited to announce that Axel has been transferred to serie C side Novara, one of the oldest clubs in Italy! It's been a complicated couple of weeks with the new coaching staff and the new director, but Axel finally signed the paperwork this morning. A lot of people to thank for the deal, but mostly his agent and his keeper coach from last season, who by the way, won keeper coach for the 19-20 serie B season. Novara told Axel the starting spot was up for grabs, so it's up to him to earn it. I may be a little biased, but I trust Axel to do what it takes. He has the c

    He won’t be at the u23s... it’s been a tough window Covid has effected the market teams don’t have as much money and most clubs need to shift players before bringing in players. loans are the last to get done... hope to have news soon...

A lot of the opportunities for the younger players have come through injuries... (Thiago Van dyke Gomes etc...) He has done so well and will keep his head down and keep pushing he’s not a mile away.. obviously he’s disappointed not to be involved but extremely happy and proudly to play for such a great and talented club... it will only make him better...

    Belal has been doing alright since the lock down started. He was lucky enough that the team let him fly back to canada and spend his time here over the last few months. He was able to continue his training doing individual drills and training on his own. He is now back in Germany with hopes of starting back up again and grinding it out soon. He would be 100% committed to playing team Canada. Born and raised here in this amazing country and will be proud to wear the jersey if he does get the call. I'll keep you guys posted on his training and news

    We watched the replay, it was an ugly injury. Scott’s knee was hyper-extended. Fortunately, he walked off the pitch and he drove home from the stadium (manual) with some pain. We spoke with him this morning. He’s in a good space, walking fairly normally and without the aid of crutches. The knee is wrapped, he’s resting, icing, elevating. He gets an MRI tomorrow. Fingers crossed ... the injury is not too serious and with the right therapy he’ll be back in 2 – 4 weeks.

  19. You are right I can’t atm comment not about loans and with all the Liam bashing of certain posters in other threads (more than one...) by the usual suspects I better not. I end up typing a long reply stating all his stats and accomplishments records and who he plays for and how long of a contract with LFC he has blah blah blah But what does it get me??! I end up deleting it as in the end to some people no matter how far Liam has come and how well he does it won’t change their opinion. Their issues are personal ,mostly uninformed and most follow an agenda. Liam has his own pathway.

    Jonathan David

    Guys, it is fun to spell this out. There was a very big game today. Mbappe, Neymar, di Maria, and David all entered the field. Only one of those players left with a goal, and got the 3 points for the win to boot. That's Canada's 2nd best player against Brazil and France's best players, and an important player for Argentina. That's what happened today.

    Here's the translated article: Jonathan David (Lille): “I wasn't ready” Jonathan David, the Canadian center forward from Lille, scorer of three goals in his last four matches, talks about his difficult integration into LOSC. Thursday, 2 p.m., in the Luchin amphitheater. Jonathan David arrives relaxed. Pose in all positions without flinching in front of the lens. Before fifty-three minutes of story on his life course then introspection on his first part of the complicated season. The day before, the LOSC center forward scored in Bordeaux (3-0) his fifth goal with the Mastiffs.

  35. I'm gonna jump in here and say that love One Soccer and support them exclusively holding of CMNT games. It costs less than a combo at McDonalds. They cover Canadian Soccer in a thorough and detailed way that TSN and Sportsnet never did. The complainers can jump on board or miss out as far as I am concerned. If anyone in the soccer community deserves my $10 a month, it's these guys.

  36. Maybe Ferreira has been helping JH and his scouting team scout luso-canadians (that's what you call a Portuguese/Canadian descendent) in Liga NOS/ as well as understand the structure of that league system. I do agree that JH will likely use this as a showcase for Ferreira and will probably look to help Ferreira land a spot on an MLS team.

    Axel Desjardins got his first professional career start yesterday in a 2-0 win. Here are the highlights: Got to screen record the game too. I'll make a video probably later today or tomorrow of all his touches. He didn't make any game changing saves, but he made some good ones and I think, most importantly, he looked comfortable and not out of place. Honestly, been watching a few games on and off, and I've never seen the Novara defense play so well lol.

As many of you know and have already mentioned, Jamie (@admin) has worked diligently, at much personal cost, to bring the Voyageurs to where they are now. Feeling that it was time for our loose knit group to take next logical step he approached a group of us who know and trust each other about formalizing the Voyageurs as an entity.

  40. Is Herdman the best coach that was available in 2018? No. Is Herdman the best coach that we could afford and was available? Probably still no. Is Herdman the most qualified coach we've had? No, I think that title would go to someone like Floro and look how that trainwreck ended. But after that, if you compare Herdman to Yallop, Mitchell, Hart, Fonseca, Findlay, Miller and even Zambrano, I wouldn't think he's the least qualified. He actually has had success on the international stage, albeit in the women's game. But success is success, especially in the international game becaus

    Flores I don’t think so but they are a few years apart in age (but they might)! I knew his father Ruben quite well back in Canada and we are friends on FB...but we don’t talk. All the other lads here(NT players and fellow Canucks ) as far as I know all chat in group chats and to each other. Herdman so i am told has really made a family feeling with all the players and they do chat with each other a lot ( from what little I know) Again a bit all 2nd hand as the info from my 21 year old is a little hit and miss lol
