    Dub Narcotic got a reaction from BCM in Class of 2005   
    I like following young prospects but watching a stream of 12 year-olds is my rubicon.

    Don't forget CFL-ish. And NBA-ish. And NHL-ish. And AHL-ish. And UFC-ish. And every-other-timed-sport-in-the-world-ish!
    Time (no pun intended) to put an end to "Fergie time". Everybody should know when a match is over. It should not be the ref's little secret, to be arbitrarily manipulated on his whim.

    Just watched the game today. Jayden Nelson is a real talent, what impressed me even more than his pace a dribbling was his delivery on the cross and his shot on target. Both were near perfect, his shot was going top corner if not for a good save, and his cross should have been a goal as it was inch perfect. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him pop up in a Canadian Championship game later in the season for TFC.
    Jacob Shaffelburg the real driver of the TFC 2 offence this game. I find it isn’t often you see a wide player make such an impact everywhere on the pitch. He really plays with a crazy amount of freedom but it works. He needs a bit of polishing up but he will be on the first team sometime soon. Like Nelson, also unlucky not to have an assist or two in the game. 
    The team as a whole looks a lot more comfortable playing at this level, which is a good sign. It will be a much better level to develop the young kids at. Maybe the top level guys will get loans to higher leagues later in the season if they show they are ready.

    No, this is Carl Robinson's agent, who was at the same agency as Robinson's brother, whose firm brought in almost all of the Whitecaps players during Robinson's reign (along with Martyn Pert). 86 forever, amongst others, has done great reporting on this and has the archives on their web page. It's become pretty clear that Robinson was acquiring players, in the most generous interpretation, because he trusted his agent and brother to a fault, and in a more realistic interpretation, because he was getting a cut of the transfer fees the Whitecaps were paying for these players. This went on for FIVE ******* YEARS!

    Un-******* real. The Whitecaps turned down a bigger offer from PSG for Davies just so Robinson could get a kickback from his agent, who was also brokering the Bayern deal for Davies. If you read further in the thread it's implied they fired Kah when he complained about the situation with Baldwin being involved in all the transfers. How is Lenarduzzi still around? How is Robinson not in jail? This is ridiculous.

    It's completely selling high, he's clearly on the decline and his wages are far more consequential to any club's budget than a transfer fee.

    .... and Altidore started the year playing on an injured foot during the CCL which finally couldn't take anymore stress requiring in-season surgery! He finished 2017 and scored his MLS Cup winning goal on that same injured foot. Quite inspirational actually!

    He led the USSDA league in scoring playing for TFC u15 with 12 goals in 20 matches. He joined TFC in February 2015.  
    Second in scoring (but 5 behind) was Gabriel Antinoro from the Impact.
