    DigzTFC got a reaction from Northvansteve in Dominik Yankov   
    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?

    DigzTFC got a reaction from MtlMario in Marcelo Flores called 'Canadian prodigy'   
    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 ********** father, Jonathan De Guzman father or, in this case, Ruben Flores anywhere near our prospect pool.  Our program needs to respect itself before anyone else can respect it.

    DigzTFC got a reaction from Corazon in Marcelo Flores called 'Canadian prodigy'   
    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 contracts in Mexico just by being a Mexican international.  If Marcelo doesn't make it in Europe and is a Canadian international he has MLS and CanPl to fall back on which are less lucrative contracts.  It makes sense for both their careers at the moment.

    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!

    “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.

    Garcia will push forward with the depth in the midfield but we do need another target striker.

    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 to getting a permanent residence. U-21 Players
    Only 1 player (Scott Firth) is under 21.  Which means we need 2 more u-21 signings. Although I read the signing article of Kinumbe and it says he's U 21 - maybe I don't know the proper cut off date. If that is the case then Nsa also qualifies. I dare to speculate that Oscar Marshall (NS Native/2019 Trialist/ Former U17 Impact Academy) will get another look. Jake Ruby (draft pick) is of U-21 age and domestic.
