    Gian-Luca reacted to Unnamed Trialist in Doneil Henry   
    The K-League has announced they are starting on May 8, will play a regular season plus playoffs. Doneil's Suwon plays the league opener against defending champs Incheon.

    All matches behind closed doors, I think they are already playing preseason matches.

    Gian-Luca reacted to SoccMan in TFC 2020 Season   
    Good old Kurt Larson when at the Toronto Sun an independent newspaper with no affiliation to TFC or MLSE , would not say a bad word towards TFC in his articles and now look at him . Would have had more respect for this guy if he spoke like this when at the Toronto Sun but doing it now nah too late bud. Forget how many times I emailed this guy when I would question some of the things TFC was doing on and off the pitch and this guy would always take TFC’s side . Lot’s of respect for a guy like Manella here though , here is a guy who was highly touted by TFC and then eventually let go. You would think he would have had a go at TFC but he didn’t , have more respect for a guy like Manella than this Larson guy , who hardly wrote one bad thing about TFC when at the Toronto Sun.

    Article in the Guardian about his signing.  Nothing new, but I'm loving seeing "Canadian international" in the Guardian's football pages!

    Holy crap that's impressive.  Finding a random 17-year old thread to bump.  That's an amazing level of commitment.

    Gian-Luca got a reaction from Free kick in IFFHS League Ranking - MLS 66th in the world, 4th in CONCACAF. What's it's real ranking?   
    You really thought this obviously- ridiculous league ranking system was worth reporting in a thread on its own?

    Scoring against a team like Roma (first Canadian to do so, I'm assuming as I'm not sure who else would have had the opportunity - except maybe Cristante before he started playing for Roma and obviously he's not Canadian eligible anymore) certainly won't have sent those scouts away with a negative report

    Gian-Luca reacted to Ams1984 in York9 - Season Thread 2020   
    The more fans the better, I’m with you there. I don’t like the obvious political feel to their blurb, and I’m generally not a fan of dividing people into groups based on their immutable characteristics.
    I’ve got no problem with a supporter’s group called “dames of York” but I’m not really excited about the “inclusive atmosphere for all those who identify as women” bit - first, its definitional exclusion, not inclusion, to have an X or Y only group. If there were a group promoting an “inclusive atmosphere for all men who support York 9” how would that play?
    Second, why use politically laden language? Why not just say something like: “an inclusive York 9 supporters group for everyone interested in supporting our great club” (their name and image clearly convey the female-friendly culture of the group, the ‘identifies as’ is just unnecessary. The word “everyone” would cover that in a much less political way).

    I make that 43 Canucks on first team rosters. 44 if I was to add Callum Montgomery at Dallas but he's been loaned out. I imagine some of the TFC, Whitecaps & Impact younger players may be as well by the time the USL or CPL seasons start so that total could get reduced.

    I feel bad for this guy.
    I know it's only the first game of the season. I knew the whitecaps would struggle to get Cavallini the ball, but I never envisioned it being that bad. The whitecaps were absolutely dreadful. Lucas was an island on his own. And it wasn't just him, Freddy Montero didn't get any of the ball either. The whitecaps seem to have no defined way of playing. All the players hold on to the ball for too much, or are not on the same page in general. I like Marc Dos Santos, but his group play with no believe and no confidence. I hate that Lucas Cavallini is in this situation, but that's what he signed up for. The few chances he had could have gone better for sure, but if this is how the season is going to go I think Lucas is going to want to jump ship and I wouldn't blame him. The players around him are just not good enough. The French-Serbian did well and the Colombian winger did well at times, but there was no coherency in the attack, just players doing their best to create chances as individuals. Things don't look good.
