    Winnipeg Fury got a reaction from johnyb in Match Thread: Island Games - September 5, 2020 - Forge v Valour   
    An improved Valour side.  Most important,  they did not stop trying.  Last years squad just rolled over and died, this side showed some fight.
    As we all said at the start of the tournament, Valour need a striker.  
    Much improved defence and in goal.  A lot of talent, hard to believe we are probably going to finish in 7th place.
    Can we keep our good players ?  
    Hopefully we will be in the stands in 2021 !

    Personally don't think any manager should be fired due to how weird the season was.

    If they didn't fire him after last year, there's no reason to get rid of him now.

    I don’t think valour would have made it through a 28 game schedule with the depth they had. I was excited about the additions they made but it’s clear that they still have no where near the correct balance of players to compete in this league. Especially considering Dunn and Campbell where last minute additions only bc tfc II was not operating this year. I understand that there was an international cf potentially signed but this team really needs to sit back and reevaluate the way that they are piecing together a lineup and how the players are being used. I really think the international cards have been for the most part wasted. One of which antiwi appears to not be what he was pegged to be. I also think it’s been poor management not to utilize players from the usport draft, I think it’s poor asset management and a failure to give quality young Canadians an opportunity to develop. Winter will be interesting, the direction this team takes if it wants to get better.

    I think they need to have a clearly defined penalty before seasons start.  I don't think the issue goes away, these there is a lot of pressure on coaches to win.  You look at Paulus, focusing toi much on players from academy and not enough on winning could cost him his job.  The league is already more competitive this year, and for those teams in contention it  will always be more tempting to depend on veteran players than for teams out of contention.  Which is why you need the rule in the first place.
    You take Bobby: on the one hand his whole career he's been about developing young Canadian players.  On the other hand, he's got a career of of his own that might involve aspirations beyond this league.  How good would it look on his resume to have back to back Canadian Championships and do well in CONCACAF league again?  But Forge resigned almost everyone and there are vets at every position and on bench that he trusts.
    So the league (and Bob Young) needs to back up its talk and have clear penalties in place for next year.  Otherwise why wouldn't Bobby play his vets and take a fine?

    As crazy as a 5 way tie sounds it isn't as far fetched as some may think, Valour beats Forge, York9 and Cavalry draw, Atletico beats Halifax and Pacific beat the Eddies! I wonder what that would pay out on a betting voucher?

    My only hope for a Valour win is if in fact Forge have clinched a spot in the next round, they send out an A minus lineup, including the required Canadian content. I don't see how Valour scores a goal against a full strength Forge side if they couldn't against the likes of HFX or York.

    Good point.  Atiba's longtime teammate at Besiktas, Ricardo Quaresma, was infamous for the teardrop tattoo under his eye.  Typically, the teardrop tattoo indicates you have successfully killed another person.  Most logical explanation is that he's just a total dumb@ss and didn't know what he was getting.

    I agree on the team, although as long as Valour isn't putrid I see Gale as safe.
     
    This is my #1 reason I feel Valour will lose today.

    Valour will have the disadvantage of team familiarity.
    Cavalry might have an extra advantage because they have played a competitive match.

    Met the man and personally like him, but watching those interviews after a loss was painful. Always blamed the refs, weather and bad luck and never gave credit to the other team. Comes across as a whiner and that is not a trait well suited for professional coaches.

    What would be so bad about manitoba sport culture that it would cause a mass exodus of players to all corners of the CPL? 
    Getting a team of teenagers together for a U-17 2 week camp and a 3 game tournie isnt the same as dealing with professional men and getting them to pull together as a team over an entire season.  Its the same as some good college coaches (in many sports) never make the transition to pro.  They are different animals and being successful in one doesnt always translate to success in the other.

    Quote from Cavalier FC technical director Rudolph Speid: “Why we love the Canadian League more than even the USL (United Soccer League) is that this is going to be the second season of the Canadian League and they have already sold about four players to Europeans clubs."
    Those transfers really do attract meaningful attention.

    I suggested Saskatchewan a while ago, as a replacement to the missed summer series.  If you want to keep developing new markets, this is a way to do it.
