  1. At least once more, because much of what you said is wrong
  2. Neto is out for the rest of the season with an injury, which could mean another shot for Theo to spend some time with the first team. Would be great if he could see a few minutes.
  3. It seems like it’s intentionally being kept quiet to avoid ire from other sectors about training as covid spikes
  4. And he’s probably played with half of Pacific’s roster and coaches
  5. I don’t get it. Are you choosing this player as an example of someone that chose USL over CPL? I can’t say I know much about the guy but it looks like his loan ended after playing far fewer than half the available minutes for a poor Valour team
  6. His other goal was a bullet header off a corner.
  7. That’s his 19th in all competitions this season, surpassing his goal scoring record set in his rookie season with Orlando
  8. I meant currently and in recent years though. Hamilton’s age group
  9. This seems to be contradictory. If he keeps doing well they won’t sign him, because their academy is producing players? Amanda was one of those academy players, but he had to go elsewhere to take the next step. He’s not a random player for the caps
  10. From a westerners perspective, I’ve always thought that Ontario youth had more opportunities than anywhere else in the country. They have the most professional and semi-pro options, the best pathway to pro, the best scouting network, and their youth players often seem to be preferred when it comes to youth national team selection. I suppose you could argue there is more competition, but that’s also a positive imo.
  11. Whitecaps should sign him and loan him to Pacific or Edmonton for a season
  12. Ahmed Alghamdi saw his first minutes with Al Ettifaq in the Saudi Professional League
  13. I'm generally curious if this has been your experience, because I would say this describes a very select few of the fans I've met in stadiums in Canada over the years. Committed supporters aside, most just seem to be there to catch a game, but they know next to nothing about the players, teams or league. This holds true for MLS, NASL, USL, PDL, CPL, PCSL Varsity etc. I don't blame the fans. We give our players next to no recognition
  14. Elva had a goal and an assist in a 2-2 tie against Bayern II. They remain locked in a tight promotion race
  15. CPL Division II is an oxymoron, but it's extremely representative of how discombobulated professional soccer has always been in this country
  16. I think this is a part of his game that he's improved on from last year. He still defers to his winger or midfielders too often for me in the final third, but that's probably by design. We don't see that with Canada I definitely got the sense this was tactical. He had opportunities to overlap but he held his run. One of the few times he did push forward, Alaba ignored him and PSG went and scored on the counter. Alaba ignores Davies in space far too often.
  17. It’s funny. Yesterday aside, I still don’t think he’s played his best football with Lille. In spite of that, he’s scoring goals, winning games and drawing interest from some of the best clubs in the world
  18. It's been a great game so far. Wish there were fans in the stadium
  19. @Ivan @toontownman it was very much meant as sarcasm for the reasons you mentioned, and the fact that it sounds like the two groups have already decided to go their separate ways
  20. I'm sure the two groups will work together with no egos getting in the way, for the betterment of soccer in this country,
  21. Right, I suppose he is. Still, they're important games in both title races with the top two teams facing off.
  22. Critical games for Davies and David back to back this Saturday
  23. Fury fans have disagreed with me in the past about TMG, but I thought he was really solid for Pacific last season. I hadn't seen much of him before that, but I'd place him alongside some of the other CBs I've seen live like Didic, Montgomery, Norman Jr, and Waterman
  24. Pantemis and Norman were massive contributors this tournament and both of them most recently played in CPL. Though they both have MLS connections as well. I was surprised Farsi and Abzi were used so sparingly, and I think Ongaro or Campbell should have been in that squad
