  1. Oh Man!! The "MLS is terrible for Canada" contingent on this board is going to have a field day with this post! : )
  2. The bolded may be a little harsh Obinna. In his interview, he stated he received a lot of questions/interest/feedback from some teams during his trial, but at the end of the day, was not offered a contract. By the way, in his interview he also stated that he and Corbeanu grew up together and were really good buddies. They regularly keep in touch. No coincidence they both committed to Canada around the same time.
  3. Interesting. Not very long ago, a player of his pedigree and level would be a shoo-in starter for our full NT. Now, despite starting for a top flight Scottish club, he is hoping to make our Olympic team!
  4. I'm not sure how high Lampard is on Tomori at this point. I don't think he has started a game since the pandemic break, and has been regularly left out of the 18. Maybe he's hurt or carrying a knock?
  5. He came on for the last 7 minutes. Ludogorets lose 1-0.
  6. Update coming from the league 1 pm EST on Wednesday.
  7. I get the feeling he could have taken a job with Onesoccer. Just MHO.
  8. Hasal also beat out the highly touted Alessandro Busti for the #1 keeper at the last U20 WC qualifying.
  9. They are not allowed to according to a prior agreement between MLS, USSF, CSA and Concacaf. Now, one of the teams, if they win, could field a weaker team. The other consideration is, given the Feds refused the Blue Jays in their request to play at home vs. the rest of MLB teams, I can't see how the 3 MLS teams will get permission to play at home vs. the US teams. The Voyageurs Cup may be all that's left for them at home after the MLS is Back tourney.
  10. I've only watched the first half so far and thought ZBG (and Piette) looked real good, so if he got better as the match wore on I could easily understand his MOTM performance rating.
  11. I know your MO is to be critical of Canadian players (not sure of your motivation, reality check for all us pro-Canadian fans on a Canadian supporters site?) but can you honestly say that Cornelius has looked worse than Khmiri?
  12. Spot on BrennanFan. That is definitely the way I remember it.
  13. He certainly looks fit, as in good shape. Maybe carrying some sort of knock?
  14. I remember an interview with Jay Chapman earlier this year, i think on the Onesoccer Hangouts series. Chapman said it was probably best for him to leave TFC because Vanney establishes a rotation of 14-16 players and he sticks to it pretty religiously. If you are not in that rotation, and the team stays relatively healthy, you get very little playing time, even if you play well when you get a chance. Chapman wasn't criticising Vanney, he stated that is what made him successful and he stuck to it.
  15. Great summary. If not one of the young Canucks could get on the field in a game like that, I have to wonder if they will ever get any time. Loan them to CPL teams FFS!
  16. This one hits close to home. My wife contracted this type of cancer in 2003. She died 2.5 years ago. I miss her every day. Best of luck Aramis, my prayers are with you.
  17. I try not be be this cynical. I try .........
  18. I'd like to see Okello, Nelson and Marshall-Rutty, at least, loaned to CPL clubs if they aren't getting playing time with TFC, even over the TFC II players.
  19. Awesome! Exactly the type of moves that should be happening with our best young prospects.
  20. Henry has played higher levels than Straith for most of his (and Straith's) career. And Henry is better than Straith. That is not a knock on Straith. It is just my opinion that, mistakes and all, Henry is currently our best CB. I am hoping the speed and aggression (press) of the South Korean game makes him a better player.
  21. A little melodramatic, don't you think? I don't think anyone on here used the word "hate". A very strong word in this day and age. A lot of Canada and TFC fans don't always agree with Vanney's player choices. Nothing wrong with that. Spencer and Zavaletta were two prime players. As a TFC fan I agree for the most part. Spencer was terrible on TFC, and the last two years of Zavaletta were bad, but at least I will give him credit for playing well in the championship year and CCL run. Vanney is a good coach. I think people on this site (Reminder - Canadian soccer supporters site!) would rather see Canadians play over middling to poor Americans, even if those Canadians are also middling. By the way, how's Mark-Anthony Kaye doing in LA?
  22. In Bulgaria, Dominik Yankov set up the first goal and scored the third. Botev Vratsa up 1-3.
  23. Caniggia Elva starts and goes 80 minutes (with a yellow) in a big 0-2 win for Ingolstadt. Ingolstadt now 1 point away from the promotion playoff position.
  24. In fairness, Pepple was brought to the final camp prior to the U17WC. Who is Ole?
