    He's still unproven at senior level, so I can't imagine he'll be brought in expecting to lead the line on any Bundesliga team. I think he'll be brought in as a backup to an established player, expecting to bring energy off the bench and potentially start a couple matches.

    Yeah this is by far the biggest game yet for Phonzy, it won't be too often that we get the chance to see a Canadian go directly against the greatest player to ever play the game. I'm really looking forward to this game, probably even more than the final if Bayern make it there.

    Not much? That seems like exactly the right amount. More than enough for casual fans to remain engaged with the league but not so much that it devalues the OneSoccer subscription. 
    Further, I don't think it was intentional but the article mentions "CPL Saturdays", and that's 100% branding that the league/CBC/OneSoccer should work on. It's the good alliteration sound like "Friday Night Football".

    From that interview I loved that Lille plans to build the team around him, and play him in his preferred position as a 9 in a strike partnership. I wonder who the other striker will be... Loic Remy?

    I don't agree with reducing the overall talent on the field just to push Davies to a wingback role. Bayern have been so successful in part because Davies bails them out with his pace time and time again when players get in behind the backline. People love to point out the fact that Bayern have players to cover for Davies when he gets caught up the pitch, but never seem to mention the fact that Davies repeatedly does the same. He's a very strong defender, and you lose that to a certain degree if you push him forward. Regardless, I think we're a stronger team with Hoilett on the field, and we're stronger in attack than we are in defense. Two losses with Davies as a LB is too small of a sample size for me to assume we cannot play in a 4 back system with Davies as a LB and still give him freedom to get forward.

    I guess seeing is believing for most, but I am with you. His maturity in the position should not be overlooked.

    Lille also signed old man Burak Ylimaz, who played with Atiba at Besiktas for the past few years. He can score, not sure if they plan to start him or bring him off the bench though.

    He had a nightmare against the US, making mistakes that you never see him make at Bayern. I don't really feel that is a realistic representation of what he can offer at the position with Canada yet that's what everyone holds to when insisting it won't work for us

    I know everyone is kind of ticked off by the new Subcription fee for The Island Games. But you've gotta love what OneSoccer is doing here. The investment is real and meaningful. DAZN is a better value for sure, but having Sharmen, Forrest, Larson, Dunfield, etc all come on board is a major win for OneSoccer and it shows they're actually building something people should care about. DAZN has the Premier league and Champions league, and a bunch of other leagues that are top notch but if they losts the rights next year to either of the big two, they're just Bein Sports.
    For me the Canadian National team and CPL are more important to me, and I love that some of the guys I grew up with covering this stuff will continue to do so on OneSoccer. 
    The next step is to win some rights battles on meaningful leagues. Target #1 has to be the Bundesliga, which is up for grabs this year. Scotland and Italy would be nice but are currently spoken for.

    I'm once again blown away at how opinionated people are about kits. For me, it's so clearly subjective that I'm shocked when people scream bloody murder about it while there's hardly a peep about the actual footballing side of things most of the time. I would love if someone would explain why it means so much to them.
    BTW I like the Pacific kit, and I'll probably buy into this Collective thing instead of the OneSoccer subscription because of it.
