    youllneverwalkalone got a reaction from ted in CanPL's problem: It's about the money, stupid.   
    Fans and vanity projects described 99% of all football owners including Man City and PSG. Even the American businessmen behind Arsenal, Liverpool, and Man U would be lost without TV money -arguably even they aren't doing great if you ask the supporters. I don't know who the top businessperson in the world would be, but insert that person without TV money and their club is going to be shit/league.
    If you have enough capital, you might aspire to be the Belgium of the Americas, human trafficking footballers from poor countries, but that capital is going to come from your pocket. And you will need to really beat the odds to make money long-term on the buy/sell game. Develop and sell also seems like a bit of a fool's errand from my year's of observing the Whitecaps -even $20m for Davies can pay for all the youth investment over the years.
    Give me wealthy idiots who want to waste money in football. I'll take it! I would argue the current CPL bunch are not idiots and have tried to deal with the TV angle in the most realistic manner possible to allow the league to survive for 10 years. But make a buck from the league? I guess so if it goes back into infrastructure, but I don't want any owners taking money out. If you want that, go buy a utility or a bank.

    Back by popular demand, it is now time for....
    Celebration analysis time:
    Notice his relaxed demeaner as he trots to the touchline at 0:13, as his teammates embrace him with hugs. That is a confident man who knows he can score. Much contrast to his first goal, in which there was a big sense of relief as he broke his goal drought.

    The 60-man roster is totally irrelevant. For international call-ups you can call up who you want, when you want, there is no provision for a previous list of players as what happens for major tournaments, or with clubs and Champions League, where you have to declare eligibility previously and have limited spots. 
    So forget about the 60-man roster, it means nothing. Herdman can call up Marc Dos Santos's brother if he so chooses.
    I already commented this on another thread: with Cavallini not really on form, and coming off an injured spell, we might want to think about alternatives. If he can show some spark for the Whitecaps, fine; if not, let's think of someone else. I do think, that said, that Cava is our best player in that target role and he has experience in Mexico, but only when he's on form. Ennin is not a pure target, he plays a bit more like David or even Larin, and objectively I think he's not as sharp. So I am not saying he is the alternative to Cavallini--but someone should be considered if Lucas is not ready.

    Those are highlights from Latvia league, Lithuanian league and then a few of him at Tomsk, 2nd tier Russia, in lighter green. All in a short period, like two years. He moves up a level and does basically the same sort of thing, with decent controls, solid passing, team play, hold up, and a few assists and goals. If he's doing it now in top flight Russia that is a positivie sign. Some of those Russian grass pitches were a bit rough.

    Unlikely.  Footballers are the only one who make money in Football. Fans put it in, and owners swirl it around.

    There's a section in soccernomics where they talk about what tiny fraction of the population actually attends matches in England.
    From my first qualifyer at Swangard to now, the landscape is unrecognizable. Sure, things could be better -but man they could be worse. If Wheeler would just adopt that BBC accent we're all looking for to legitimize his position, he could point out that Canada is in the "ascendancy." It's all up from here, for both the MNT, WNT, and CPL.

    Looks like Coyne came in the match in the 86th minute.
    Playing for Ruud van Nistelrooy. I wonder if a 19 year-old really knows who is?
