    Don't know what to make of this but Kurt edited his original tweet, which IIRC stated that there were rumors circulating about this happening from a Turkish news source, I think.

    Ivan reacted to toontownman in Doneil Henry   
    It is so frustrating. I have a lot of time for Doneil. He has the tools and we all want him to just put them together to be consistent because he could be an absolute beast for us. He still hasn't reached peak for a defender but he hasn't cut out the silly errors and I don't know that will happen at this point. 
    He can still excel and be a huge player for Canada either way but it depends on who he is partnered with. The right fit and players around him can help.

    He's a '98 right? All youth football is over for him except U24 Olympic Qualifying if he were to play for Canada. It would be an uphill battle to get into either the Albanian or the Canadian senior team.

    Ivan reacted to BearcatSA in Herdman new head coach   
    Based strictly on the personnel available, this is an Ocho qualifying team, plain and simple.  I haven't always said that about our NT, especially during the times when FC Unattached or FC In-the-pressbox-on-matchday provided too many squad players for us.  But now, though it still has question marks in some areas, this team makes the final eight.

    I won't lie, I've been a supporter of Herdman despite his goofs, I've been patient and given the man the benefit of the doubt, but if he fails to make El Ocho, specially when for the first time since who knews when the odds are actually in our favour, I will not make any excuses for him. This is why he was hired, to get the CMNT to a world cup. He's had time to learn and tweak things around, but we're no longer competing for Gold Cup qualification or CNL spots, WCQ is the real deal.

    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?

    I e-mailed them regarding this as I am a Forge SSH and had already paid for my season 2 seats. The response I received was that they were looking into it and would get back to me shortly. I can see now that it was merely a stall tactic and I am expected to fork out some more money to be able to watch these 'Island Games'. This seems beyond shady and is insulting to someone who hasn't asked for a refund for this season's seats so as to help the club out. I'm really re-thinking my commitment for next season and onward.

    Leeds United is a Legacy club like Nottingham Forest. They were the the best club in England in the 60-70s basically the Don Revie era they were runners up in two European Cup finals and won numerous league titles and cups. They won the last first division in 1991 before the premier league started. They hve fallen on hard  times in Recent years but have one of the largest fan based in England outside of the top 6. There is a great doc on Amazon that goes into Leeds United. Worth a watch. They are an Elite club  

    The premier league has a different level of physicality and pressure. If things don’t go your way after 5-6 games especially as a striker( ask Morata at Chelsea)  u can be written off. So will be a real challenge but they hve a world class manager and a very good team which they will definitely be looking to improve  
    im not saying Leeds is the right fit for Jonny or not   Just wanted to be clear they are a BIG club and with Bielsa in charge and the right amount of money don’t right them off.

    He was negative, but the behaviour towards him was what was toxic.  Honestly, if you were concerned about people coming here to learn about the CPL and 2026 bid, people's reaction to him always seemed much worse than anything he did.  Some of his stuff was (justly) criticized but there was definitely people who took it in to a personal realm.

    It's his second appearance (that I am aware of) on OneSoccer during the pandemic. Maybe he's gotten a job with them? Asa did say in that video "It will be good to see you in person". But that doesn't necessarily mean anything. It would be great if he can be involved in some way though. Whether it is playing, coaching, broadcasting, helping found a L1O team with eyes towards the CPL, whatever he can do to help the game in Canada will be very welcome here.

    Yea...if the roster gets released tomorrow, let’s be honest. Not a single CPL or USL player would be on it. So this topic, is not worth the debate.

    Didn't think of that, he interviews really well. It would be great to see him get a season or 2 in, and then move on to coaching or broadcasting.

    He is much more interesting to listen to than Ollie or Larsson.  He prob wouldnt be as big a homer as Dunfield and Wheels.  I still hope its a playing gig, with an eye to coaching the next generation.

    Ivan reacted to SpursFlu in Jonathan David   
    My observation is his agent is trying to craft his career in a way to make the most money. The playbook is out there to gradually progress players to the epl to maximize the amount of money exchanging hands. Not to say Lille isn't what's best for him but I think Leeds is comparable in I think he would start. But epl is not as good of an environment for a 20 yr old as League1 with a player of David's profile. Leeds is a bigger challenge. It's an interesting dilemma

    I am SOO glad I was wrong about him.  This guy is the real deal.  In the "word" of Caldwell, he's a quality playmaker.
