  1. This what happens when you hire bean counters to run soccer in this country. Say whatever you want about Victor Montagliani, but at least he was "soccer guy" who made decisions based on what's best for Canadian soccer. Hiring a women coach with no experience managing men soccer to run senior men's team especially with current group who on paper might be most talented Canadian team ever says what you need to know about current CSA management.
  2. I don't really follow CPL, but I feel we do have options for LB if we decide to play 4-3-3. On a positive note, at least this tournament answer some questions when comes to who starts for this team moving forward.
  3. I don't see anyone here mentioning this, but Holliet (besides Cuba game) didn't play well in this tournament. When we move Davies up front, then Holliet will be odd man out. But I highly doubt Herdman would have the balls to bench Holliet. We simply can't afford to play Davies as LB anymore, we need a proper LB who wouldn't make mistakes that cost us goals like Davies did in this tournament.
  4. - Hutch is done. Thanks for your service but it's time for him to retire. - Godinho has been awful throughout this tournament. He's not ready to be starter - Backline is very fragile and need to mature quickly. - But on the positive, we got firepower up front that's going to get better in the future. - Herdman has end of this year to keep his job due to nation league. He better hope MMT rebounds from this disaster quickly.
  5. Subbing off Osorio looking like bad sub. Midfield is on panic mode and they need someone to calm down midfield
  6. Time to move up Davies and play 3 in the back. 3-5-2 is formation we should go to now
  7. They are attacking Godinho all the time. Two errors going to cost us this tournament
  8. Need to clean up in the back line and move the ball faster to beat their press.
  9. And Hondruas are officially eliminated from the tournament.
  10. You go for win to avoid playing against Costa Rica in the quarter finals. Plus, this is a good game to test our players to see how good they're against the best in CONCACAF. CMNT has depth to beat Cuba so that should be "rest" game.
  11. Besides backline, Holliet has been useless out there. Need to score few more goals
  12. Good to know. I only watched 2nd half on CBC and saw an empty stand and supporter section didn't look full either. York U is a great location, but owning your own stadium is better option financially in the long term. Hopefully York9 able to build their own 15,000 stadium with grass turf ASAP.

    I see CSA prefer checks over stripes as well.
  14. You can sign someone for cheap then rely on companies to pay sponsorship money to the player to get around the salary cap. Not only that, but you can also promise a job after contract is over.
  15. Salary cap isn't a good idea because it will limit bigger teams of signing "high profile" players which CPL needs to attract sponsors, media and fans to their product. (You gotta spend money to make money). But I am glad to read that they're getting close to signing a kit and media deal. CPL needs to find a way to be on TV both in Canada and internationally. As for Ottawa, I am sure they will eventually come around and join CPL in few years. (USL isn't sustainable for Canadian clubs...just look at TFC2 as proof who joining lower level USL2 next year so they can cut costs)
  16. I am out going to waste my time since you haven't done your research but a lot of things you say doesn't make sense. (Google is your friend) 1. Mississauga has been trying to get out of Peel region for a while because they feel like a city of own identity and want to have their own services instead of sharing it with rest of region. Not only that, but they even try to get rid of "Welcome to Toronto" signs in Pearson airport and try to replace with Welcome to Mississauga signs not too long ago. What other evidence you want here? 2. Raptors 905: https://raptors905.gleague.nba.com/raptors-905-faqs/ This will answer your questions about 905 identity and how they market themselves. 3. I am not sure why you bringing hockey into this because that sport isn't popular in Mississauga. Soccer is completely different sport for completely different demographic. Not only that, but CPL is marketing themselves as tier one league not junior league. But if you want go that route then how come TFC2 failed so miserably in Vaughan? Vaughan and rest of region already prove they can't support pro soccer. So York9 struggling shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Using semi pro leagues with audience of family and friends in the attendance isn't good measuring stick. 4. York region (especially Vaughan) have always consider themsevles part of Toronto. Do you remember what Vaughan old city motto? Now they got TTC subway running in their city, they probably feel more part of Toronto.
  17. Junior hockey always been a failure in GTA. (Brampton and Mississauga) The reason Mississauga will succeed because people there have pride for their city and soccer is massive in that market. Also, Mississauga is one of those so called urban suburb town. Plus, Raptors 905 team plays in that city and they're doing reasonably well. York region is more rural and a lot of people living there view themselves more as part of Toronto than part of York region. This is reason why York9 is struggling to get people to buy into their club. Funny enough, I feel like junior hockey will do well in that region than soccer. lol
  18. York 9 are going to be Argos of CPL...lol But on serious note, I am not surprised about lack of interest from people living in that region. If CPL is going to be successful in GTA, then it will be bigger GTA cities like Mississauga that do well in the stands.
