    Not a clue. Anyone we talked to was being very cagey. Rob Friend seemed to have some names on his mind and I think James Merriman did too. I couldn't pick a player to save my life, which is why I don't coach. LOL 

    Everyone seemed surprised by the number of international attendees. I was hoping the coaches might have let more slip behind the scenes.

    Apart from that error, the team was pretty well in its usual line of play, with great talent and potential, but lacking hardcore work on the training pitch and in tactics. All the best to the sub coach, but he is not doing anything revolutionary nor do I see a thing altered. Maybe that is unfair, but still, there are plenty of cases of interim managers shaking things up. 

    I hope they hire someone able to evaluate what is wrong and then with the backing to pull out the lash and flail away. We're the only Canadian team at all close to a even or winning record this year, in all competitions; with a decent coach, make that a few more results, and maybe a different overall narrative for the team. 

    I thought he loosened the leash on Teibert a little, and it seemed to pay off.

    To me, this is just a trend. Pacific & York9 excluded, maybe, aren't we seeing development coaches across the league? I think that's a good thing, and likely speaks to the 1.0 era being about catching those kids who were falling (or not falling) through the cracks of our system.

    Our assistant, James Merriman, has been very involved with development in BC.

    Just check out this depth from M-CF! (Some players listed twice as they are versatile)

    CF: Cavallini, Larin, David, Ricketts, AJH, Akindele, Hamilton

    W: Hoilett, Davies, Tabla, Millar, Edwards, Akindele, Fisk, Telfer

    AM: Osorio, Arfield, Tabla, Chapman

    M: Arfield, Piette, MAK, Tiebert, Osorio, Wotherspoon, Fraiser

    I am sure that I missed some guys like Hutch for example. It is crazy how we have guys playing in decent leagues like Wotherspoon and he isn’t a shoo-in starter, not to mention not even getting subbed in against USVI.

    Sneaky Ben Fisk addition.

    This.... Ive been watching every Cardiff game, because of Hoilett.... And my God does he doing a lot of tracking back. I've barely seen him get on the attack, so it's definitely something he could do. 

    Cardiff give up so much possession. He's had to do a ton of defending this season.

    With Tabla in the mix, our best 11 and formation is now totally up in the air.  Its a versatile team with many moving parts.  I can't wait for the Gold Cup.  With this team, and our deep bench, anything is possible.







    I think Osorio has earned the start until Tabla can take it from him

    Got annoyed listening to Mark Goudie on TSN and the constant suggestion that CPL is below division 2 and  the need for Ottawa to stay in division for the sake of Canadian football since apparently it would not be beneficial to have CMNT players loaned there. Was just thinking how great it would be if CPL can challenge that point by having the muscle to pouch most of Ottawa's players - seeing as most USL contracts are year-to-year anyways. 

    Agreed. I’m disappointed by the decision from Ottawa but I can understand and tolerate it. Denigrating the league to justify the decision though, is unacceptable in mind.

    How is 625k not closer to 500k than to a million? What he says makes a lot of sense. 

    Read it again and be mindful of D3 and D2. In theory D3 budgets will be below the D2 numbers quoted.Though I don’t know where those D2 numbers come from
