  1. Interesting. So potentially another signing that's taken at least a month to complete. I wonder what could be holding these deals up.
  2. 31 goals in 72 appearances over the last couple of years. We desperately need that goal scoring. Do you know any details about the connection to Pacific or where a deal has been rumoured?
  3. Has there been any solid news on which MLS clubs are in for him?
  4. I really feet like we need start providing explanations if we're going to be critical. How was it poorly coached, and what should have been done differently? I haven't seen the game myself
  5. Congrats boys! Exciting times Sorry for my ignorance, but when is the U17 World Cup, and will the same group of players get to compete, or will many age out beforehand?
  6. I wish we had another option in the middle so we could free Verhoeven up to play his more natural position. As far as I know, he's never played as a holding mid before this season. Also, MDJ has some experience handling pace. He presence would be nothing but an asset for this young squad, and having him fit would be a game changer for this team defensively and going forward. He's still a very good player. His replacement has also been responsible for several goals against
  7. A thin squad, a very busy schedule, crazy road trips, and injuries to key players. This is exactly what I feared before the start of the season. Already some of these kids are being forced into a crazy amount of minutes. I really hope there aren't any more long term injuries as a result. Growing pains for both the league and the club, as I really don't feel like we're getting to watch the best of this team.
  8. So Liam Millar should have been selected for this U17 competition? What does one player leaving TFC years ago have to do with the selection for our current youth national team? I asked for examples of players that were overlooked for this team. Football is full of players that were turned down at one point, and continued to develop. Look at Barcelona with players like Pique or Jordi Alba, who were both let go after playing their youth football with Barcelona, and both worked their way back to the squad. Besides, you can't expect our national teams to always select the teenagers that end up having the best careers. That's not how it works. Development is gradual and requires constant progression. Clubs may select young players based on potential, because there is profit in that if that player develops, but National teams will select players that will help the team win right now because winning is the only way to help the national team, and future national teams. Winning allows our players to compete in bigger competitions which ensures there are more eyes on the squad and more opportunities for standout individuals.
  9. If he times that wrong we'd be cursing him, but it was a beautiful tackle
  10. He was the Halifax player I was most impressed with when they came to the island. By a long shot
  11. That doesn't really answer the question. He might not have deserved a spot at the time
  12. I think Pacific's technical, young squad could benefit from a game called a bit tighter. Already there have been several turnovers from tackles that have come through the player that have already effected their season.
  13. Could somebody please explain this complaint to me, I just don't get it. Just because the majority of the players were selected from MLS academies, doesn't mean that only those players were scouted. Isn't it possible that our best players are simply part of those academies? That would seem logical. Can anyone point to specific players that deserve, or don't deserve, to have been selected instead?
  14. What is it about their first three performances that makes you think this? I would have a very hard time predicting the outcome of any match-up from what we've seen so far.
