  1. It's the first game of the season. Davies played 3 games a week all last season without a rest.
  2. TBH I've never understood why we distinguish between players abroad and players playing at home on this site. I'd prefer to see updates on everyone in one thread
  3. At some point I'd like to see the Baldisimo-Baldisimo double pivot
  4. Either Garcia or Bekker could easily win it with an influential performance in the final, but if neither are impactful Bustos has a shout
  5. Zach Verhoven would see a lot more minutes if Bustos was sold. You have to consider the players behind these guys as well. Plus any income from selling players will do wonders for these clubs. The best was to improve Canadian soccer is to bring in more money to the domestic game, and to improve the image of the league and our players. To do that we need players to move up and be successful
  6. 2 nice goals and 2 excellent assists tonight in a 5-0 win against Halifax. He's dangerous when offered any time and space
  7. Halifax fans on twitter are claiming the result was 100% intentional. I'm baffled God I wish they'd get rid of him
  8. It's going to hurt a little to play spoiler and knock Halifax out of this tournament. I like them more than Calgary and Hamilton. Better than another loss though
  9. It's not new stands, unfortunately. It's a building in behind the newest stands, next to the gravel parking lot.
  10. Thanks. I'll have a look for the replay, but I don't particularly want to relive that match. It really wouldn't shock me if OneSoccer doesn't want to highlight that criticism. As a Pacific fan I've felt hard done by in this tournament when it comes to officiating, and it extends beyond the penalties. It just seems like every 50-50 went against us and there was no consistency. I'm also sick and tired of how bias everyone at OneSoccer seems. I really hope they get some western Canadian folks involved, but perhaps that's my own bias
  11. I didn't hear that interview. I was too pissed myself to keep watching. Do you know if it's been posted anywhere?
  12. Verhoeven is very good on the ball. If he can improve other aspects his game he'll be an excellent player. Far too many mistakes last season though, and it's telling he hasn't feature much under Kah
  13. Does anyone know what the construction at Westhills is all about?
  14. Nah I’d disagree. A couple given against Pacific were quite harsh and a couple going the other way were clearly missed. It’s a short tournament but things have not evened out for the club. One of the talking points of the tournament for me, as the penalties effected our record. That being said, we also made some horrifically stupid errors, and gave the refs a chance to punish us
  15. Not for everyone, sadly. Pacific are -6 on penalties this tournament
  16. Campbell and Hojabrpour would have been two of the first names on my team sheet at the start of the season, but I think you’re probably right and they’ve lost their spots. Young has been a pleasant surprise for me
  17. Certainly for Pacific. We’re bound to gift wrap a goal or two per match because of stupid individual mistakes. That’s been our Achilles heel. There’s definitely a gap in skill too though, which contributes to the mistakes
  18. Is USL not considered professional?
  19. Noah has only started two games this season. He has some very good attributes but he needs to step up
  20. He also played in all 9 of their games while he was there, and earned a starting role for the final 6 matches. And he was a good USL player before Whitecaps 2 folded
  21. He was solid last season making very few mistakes, but he's taken it to another level this season. He's combining really well with Bustos on the right and the other forwards, while still being defensively solid. His ball winning seems to have improved as well
  22. I admit to mostly just watching games with Pacific involved but while I feel we’ve had to earn most our goals through good play, many of the goals we’ve conceded have been gifts through individual errors. I’ve seen some highlights of nice goals in other matches, but I’m curious how many have come through mistakes and how many are through good play. 50-50ish?
  23. I wasn’t particularly impressed with Young in his first appearance or two but he changed the game today with his energy and fight. He’s grown in confidence throughout this tournament
