  1. I use twitter but I signed up for CanPL mailing list and they sent me an email about the game. That's another option.
  2. Jason de Vos is a staff member as the Director of Development. https://www.canadasoccer.com/staff/
  3. Just so we are clear the President and Board of Directors are volunteers https://www.canadasoccer.com/about-landing-page/board-of-directors/ Board of Directors The Board of Directors of Canada Soccer consists of a combination of elected and appointed members representing all facets of soccer in Canada who serve on a volunteer basis to guide the organization’s strategic objectives.
  4. This guy is an exciting prospect.
  5. It's very important we get this guy in the CMNT program. He's the most important recruit out there. It's so hard to find players like him. I wish there was a way of doing a coordinated twitter campaign / lobby to recruit Akinola. Set a date where we flood the guys twitter feed!
  6. Let's no be naive to think that the media was not used by the agent to put pressure of the Bulgarian FA to get a call up. The short and long of it, Yankov is kind of a dime a dozen talent for us at this stage. A box to box midfielder that can't supplant any of our depth Kaye, Eustáquio, Piette, Osorio, Baldisimo, Fraser....CanPL has Sissoko. Maybe I'm not valuing his talent as well as the rest of you are. What am I missing?
  7. It's pretty clear that Ruben has some talent as a coach by developing his son to an elite talent. I also understand that the knife cuts both ways. We get players who aren't "Canadian" like Arfield and lose players who are "Canadian" but want to represent other countries. It's easier to accept now that the developmental pipeline is getting more robust and we have more prospects than we ever had. That being said, regardless if Ruben is fantastic coach I wouldn't want Owen Hargreaves father, Jonathan De Guzman father or, in this case, Ruben Flores anywhere near our prospect pool. Our pr
  8. I'm sorry to say this but if Marcelo is good enough to play for Mexico it is MOST LIKELY a lost cause. The kid was born and raised in Canada by a Mexican father who was employed by the Ontario Soccer Association for 6 years to identify and nurture Canadian talent. If it doesn't happen under this scenario then it MOST LIKELY won't happen. The kid is making his father proud. Ruben (father) has also revived his soccer career in Europe through his sons burgeoning accomplishments. By being a Mexican international, if Marcelo doesn't make it in Europe, he could still find lucrative co
  9. I guess when you post on the club's official facebook page, the club will listen. https://hfxwanderersfc.canpl.ca/article/wanderers-hand-trial-to-ncaa-striker-will-baynham-in-search-of-different-dimension-in-attack
  10. ----------------Bair, Millar ----------------Borges Choinere----------------Tabla -----------------Fraser Bassong, Cornelius, Miller, Godinho -----------------St. Clair
  11. What an eye-opener. Canada has come a long way...wow tough to narrow down the list: GK: St.Clair, Pantemis LB: Bassong, Abzi CB: Cornelius, Miller, Sturing, TMG RB: Godinho, ZBG CM: Fraser, Paton AM: Borges, Chioniere Wingers: Tabla, Shaffelburg Secondary Strikers: Millar Center Forward: Bair, Campbell, Ongaro I know I will get blasted for including Ongaro but he offers something completely different. In a tournament against smaller opponents he could be immensely useful. I also had a predisposition to call people who are pla
  12. Sign this guy then a good international CF. Will Baynham - Canadian Centre Forward (Former Teammate of Mateo Restrepo) UCSB Top Goal Scorer.
  13. It is true that all of the above players can score. I see the players in camp fitting into these roles: Centre Forward - Sanoh, (Morelli) Secondary Strikers - Morelli, Garcia, (Marshall) Attacking wings - Riggi, Marshall, Kreim, Bent (Garcia) Box to box midfielders - LBG, Rampersad, Sissoko, Firth Left Foot CB - Santos, Geffrard Right Foot CB - Schaale, Nsa RB - Restrepo, Ruby, (Nsa) LB - De Carolis, Kinumbe, (Santos) It will be interesting to see how Ruby, De Carolis, and Sanoh fit on this team. There is tremendous flexibility in r
  14. Derek Martin@WandererDerek·41m Very exciting additions to our club! To be clear these are our final signings before training camp opens next week. We have strategically left two roster spots available to fill as opportunity or need dictate. Looking forward to getting the squad together and watching them work!
  15. “Sanoh offers us a different option in the squad because unlike Akeem Garcia, he’s a bigger player who is a bit more of a target player that we will able to play through and he’s also a proven goalscorer and we all know we lacked goals last year,” said Fegan. https://hfxwanderersfc.canpl.ca/article/wanderers-add-depth-to-attack-with-signing-of-maritime-college-star-ibrahima-sanoh Garcia will push forward with the depth in the midfield but we do need another target striker.
  16. "The signings complete the Wanderers 2020 squad. There will now be 21 players at the Wanderers training camp in March, including the club’s two University draft picks, striker Cory Bent and defender Jake Ruby." https://hfxwanderersfc.canpl.ca/article/wanderers-bring-samba-style-to-halifax-with-brazilian-pair-joao-morelli-and-eriks-santos I think this quote is misleading. HFX carried 23 players last year.] Most likely, with single table format they want flexibility to bring an international goalscorer later on. Stylistically, I'm thinking a 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 diamond. I though
  17. Thank you, so Firth, Nsa and Kinumbe are our 3 U-21s then. After tomorrows signing, I think we will see 1 more international forward. And 1 Domestic RB presuming Cory Bent makes the team. Did any team last team last year carry a 3rd keeper?
  18. Morelli, Garcia Riggi, Sissoko, LBG, Marsall Santos, Schaale, Geffrard, Nsa Beaulieu
  19. It's also interesting to note the make up of the squad (presuming these are the signings). Overall Roster (17 signed, 2 rumored, 2 Usport Trialist = 21) 23 Max. CB - Schaale, Santos, Nsa, Geffrard, RB - Restrepo, Nsa LB - Santos, De Carolis, Kinumbe CM - Rampersad, Sissoko, LBG, Kreim, Marshall, Firth W - De Carolis, Marshall, Kreim, Garcia, Riggi, Bent F - Morelli, Garcia, Sanoh, Bent International Spots 6/7 International spots are taken (Schaale, Marshall, Garcia, Rampersad, Santos, Morelli) However, it's possible that Schaale is close
  20. I think the other player is Joao Morelli https://www.transfermarkt.us/joao-morelli/profil/spieler/359191 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6yh4fdOoMA
