  2. I agree with you here. I played for four years at a university in the NCAA, and I can guarantee you no one got any favours with grades because we played soccer. Football was actually pretty bad for it ( baseball, and basketball I only ever heard about it with one professor) but even then it wasn’t all professors helping them out. There was one particular professor who the football team were kept away from at all costs though because he was deemed to be so difficult. Anyone I knew playing soccer at other schools were never handed out favours with marks either. I would say the mid to top end of graduates are quite comparable to graduates up here. For me, the biggest difference is that the yanks have far more lower end graduating ..... which is that necessarily a bad thing? I can see why some say it could slightly undermine their degree, but I’ve experienced that for most cases, no one really cares what your degree is in or where it’s from, but rather if you have one.
  3. Welcome to the club! We’re all idiots from time to time. 😄 It’s all good.
  4. That is a seriously misleading headline. Looking around the globe for talented young players who they can help move on is smart business. It will benefit the Canadian game, and can be seen by good young players as a viable way to move up the footballing ladder.
  5. I would guess he would prefer to move laterally to another CPL club, but perhaps he will take a step down and go to the USL if he can be guaranteed playing time somewhere.
  6. I don’t think that’s a conspiracy theory. That would be intelligent decision making by the US as, IMO, it improves their chances of getting 6 points from a competitor. I don’t like it but I’d advocate for it if the roles were reversed.
  7. That was my first thought too, as I figured that kind of thing would have been talked about a lot more. Having said that, I have two small children and I work full time, so I really have no idea what anyone talks about in the real world anymore.
  8. I was chatting with someone at the match and they said as if it was common knowledge that Bob Young has been supporting Sigma (I assume financially, maybe some other ti-cat resources too?) for the past few years, and that Bobby S has been building for this season over that period. I didn’t have a chance to dig any deeper at the time, but has anyone else heard this?
  9. The match really did have a bit of everything. My ears are still ringing from the singing. I brought 4 extras to the game and a great time was has by all. I would have taken a 1-0 win before the match, but it really does feel like a lost opportunity with so many big scoring chances not going in. No matter what happens in the second leg, this league has been brilliant. It has been a great year of soccer for Canadians on the field and in the stands.
  10. I’ve been pleased with Larin. He has been a good focal point for the other attackers. He has shown well, and lay it off quickly and effectively for others. *aside from that terrible ball for Millar. Shame as it would have been great for both of those boys for that goal to have happened
  11. Here are the highlights from Gent’s Twitter. David appears to be growing into a top player going from strength to strength. Very impressive for such a young man. Here’s hoping he can keep it up for both club and country!
  12. I too have been really impressed by Borges’ whole game. The on-the-ball offensive side has been evident for much of the season, but his work rate off the ball, particularly defensively, has been a pleasant surprise. It was really evident during the home leg vs Antigua, and as you’ve said, continued in the away leg.
  13. Not at all, but the bullet point above it is! There was a game where the two goalkeepers were ejected for violent conduct, and as both teams had used all 3 substitutions, both teams needed an outfield player to finish the game in goal. Now that’s pretty awesome.
  14. What I saw wasn’t pretty, but getting the job done in Central America is satisfying. As fans of Canadian soccer, we don’t get to say that very often.
  15. Keep the updates coming, please! I’m following along by watching a running clock with the occasional substitution shown, but no commentary.
  16. It was a convincing 4-0 victory for Canada against Guadeloupe in Group C, while visiting Slovenia squeaked out a 1-0 win over El Salvador. https://www.concacaf.com/en/under-15s-men/article/mexico-british-virgin-islands-among-big-winners-on-day-4-at-cbu15-championship
  17. Here are the goals https://www.concacaf.com/en/under-15s-men/video/cu15-2019-canada-v-el-salvador
  18. No worries. Maybe our paths will cross in the real world one day.
  19. I disagree as Welshman looked one of the most dangerous attackers for Forge vs Antigua, and since moving to a more outside attacker, has seemed a reap threat to every back line we’ve played against. Antigua’s left back will be happy to hear Welshman is gone. I’m less so as a Forge fan, but I am happy for him and what it could mean for him personally and professionally.
  20. Not me Beachesl, as I’ve never even been to Saskatchewan. I’d be happy to meet up for a drink though if you’re ever at a Forge game, or coming to a Nations League match at BMO!
