  1. Been following CPL by watching all the OneSoccer game highlights but admittedly haven’t watched a full match (seen a couple second half’s here and there type of thing). Out of curiosity from the guys who have followed very closely, what’s an All CPL Starting 11 look like? What about a All- Canadian CPL Starting 11 look like? Know enough about the guys who have really stood like Borges, Campbell, Pasquotti, Camargo, etc Apologies in advance if this has been talked about which I’m sure it has but too lazy rummage through the thread
  2. If he’s going to continually be playing at the highest level out of all our CBs, then of course, no-brainer to have him in the mix. We need as much help as we can get back there.
  3. Loving his trajectory. With the head he has on his shoulders, the sky’s the limit.
  4. And does anyone know what the reason why these boys aren’t playing for Canada is?
  5. Sounds like he impressed!
  6. Incredible matches. Very happy for the performance the CPL teams put in. Hoping for some upsets in the 2nd leg.
  7. I agree with this and figured this would be the big issue with this format. 😕
  8. *ignorant North American sports fan* So what does Calvary play for now?
  9. Was at the game tonight. Definitely played well, had a lot of positive touches, drove the touchline and put in some dangerous balls. Def lots to improve upon but great to see overall and lots to be excited about. Fraser also impressed me. Loads of composure, demanded the ball, and succeeded with a lot of high risk passes. Looked well beyond his years and I liked how he made an assertive gesture towards Pozuelo at one point demanding Poz to give him a better option.
  10. I really do think Oso's TFC experience playing in the CCL was absolutely invaluable. To go down to Mexico, play in hostile atmospheres, being the underdog and to shine/outperform the "better" opposition, that's something that has clearly given him confidence and an undeniable swagger. To rise above the old-adage and prove that it is possible; I'm sure he has lots to share with his new and younger Canadian teammates.
  11. Just all the years of cheering for a Canadian team that couldn’t score, even against weak opposition. Feels. good.
  12. Feel like this is spot on. I am a fan of Piette, I like his football IQ and I feel like he is a solid member of our National Team. But he plays an integral position where you have a lot of important touches and you need a lot of trust in a player playing as the #6. I still feel like he’s a little shaky with his decision-making and the thought of him playing against a pressing team like Mexican frightened me. My gut tells me that Kaye is the better choice at this very moment (behind Atiba).
  13. I would imagine Borjan gets to decide whether he would like to start or not.
  14. Remember all those years when Canada couldn’t score in open play? Both those goals were scored with the combination of individual flair/capabilities and great team awareness/connectivity (1st goal: Davies pace and a good ball in, Hoilett’s top level awareness, Arfield having the quality to put away a difficult finish and 2nd goal: David’s individual skill to separate himself from two defenders, Tiebert able to ping a pass, Arfield and David combining beautifully). I know it’s just a little clip of highlights but lovely to see after supporting this team for so many years and usually watching unattractive football. So pumped for this Gold Cup.
  15. And here I am thinking I’m dropping the latest story.. whoops
  16. looks like Noah Verhoeven has been added as a training player. Good experience for him.
  17. Good for him. Wish him all the best.
  18. Feels like it’s going to be a big Gold Cup for some of our boys. Bunch of guys in their primes/entering their primes and all at reasonable clubs in good leagues. If someone like Cavallini has a big Gold Cup, the sky’s the limit (ie. La Liga)
  19. Wouldn’t be surprised seeing him in something like the 2nd division in Portugal. I still feel like he has stronger ties to Portugal than Canada and would be pretty shocked to see him in the CPL, although it’s a nice thought.
  20. Looked fast and dangerous in those highlights. Love this kids swag 😁
  21. Awaiting spitfires games analysis! Congrats to Liam on his first professional start
  22. Alphonso on the bench for Bayern as they play Stalteri's old team, Werder Bremen. Lets hope he finds the pitch.
  23. Good for Jayson! Getting some games in a very competitive and tough league. Can only be good for his experience, confidence and resume. I'm sure he's earned these matches one way or another.
  24. As I live in Finland for portions of the year, I’m sitting here with my father-in-law watching the end of the Inter Turku vs SJK match. I mentioned that a Canadian is playing for Inter and my father-in-law pulls out his Finnish Veikkausliiga magazine and explains , “he is a Canadian youth player, who played in the Finnish 2nd Division for EIF. He’s struggled with injuries in the past but this preseason he’s played quite well. But he must keep it up as he competes with Albion Ademi for a place” From the limited amount I watched, he played fine but had some poor crosses from the wing. Figured I’d share. Cheers
