    Aird25 got a reaction from ted in Pacific FC Launch / 2019 off season thread   
    So we're a week away from a double header at Westhills and we have an incomplete roster, an incomplete stadium, no clue as to tactics or starting 11, and no stands for the supporters. Should I be worried?

    I've heard Pacific has plans to get something going, but it probably won't happen until later in the year. They're focused on getting the first team up and running first. Hopefully they have a team competing in the next VISL season

    Isn't competition a huge component of development? Having more local kids receive high level training will only help improve the overall quality on the island, which will in turn help both senior squads. I really don't understand why either club would want to prevent the other from operating development squads. What's the incentive?

    Forge actually selected a name and logo (that level of branding) that give a clear image and it's very different for soccer and very Hamilton. The name Forge brings up many images but remain focused.
    PFC picked the most 'milk' name (if that makes sense), it's very broad and loose, and a fairly dull logo and colour selection. It feels very safe. They've been pushing it well like you point out but that's marketing not branding. I don't think they have the weakest branding overall, that goes to FC Edmonton.
    In comparison
    Forge branding: makes you think of a black metal musician FORGING a battle axe to declare ownership of the best pitch in town
    Pacific branding: makes you think of a 3.5 star spa

    Pacific weakest and Forge strongest?  As a Forge fan I think the marketing aspect has been 10/10, engagement, signings etc. Right up there ... but branding I wouldn’t say is particularly strong.  The problem is that while the logo and name have grown on most of us it takes a while.. I can’t imagine it’s any easier for people who aren’t completely obsessed with Canadian soccer.
    PFC on the other hand has gone above and beyond to make their “brand”.. they’ve opened a store downtown and even have their own coffee.  I also think the whole island/local player thing they’re going for is the strongest push out of all teams so far.  Their apparel is easily tops in CPL so far.

    Maybe that's why the Fury made such a concerted effort to slight CPLs budget. An apparent gulf in salaries could be used as an argument for exceptional circumstances

    How would you describe the move by Ottawa Fury to string the C. Premier League along for a few months, build momentum and excitement, and then just before a climax of joining the league when everyone was expecting them to, they pulled out at the last minute?

    I watch Vancouver, and I’d like to see more of him. I know many worry about players developing in MLS, but I’m selfish and want to watch our players play. Also, I think he’d make a perfect replacement for Davies, and he’d get a real chance to up his stock in Vancouver. I think it would be good for the player, the club, and the fans.

    Just watched the extended highlights of this match, and Liam was heavily involved in most of the action before he subbed out.
    For the first goal, he won the ball back deep in the attacking third as part of the high press, then played the ball into the box to Jones, who played the pass across the goal to set up the goal. In MLS, he'd be credited with the 2nd assist.
    He missed an absolute sitter a few minutes later, somehow spooning the ball over the bar from 2 yards out with the whole goal open to shoot at.
    He was called on a marginal offside just after that when he had the ball in the back of the net.
    He then scored Liverpool's second with a smart finish after reacting quickest to pounce on a rebound following a save by the Napoli GK.
    He played an excellent through ball, earning the assist on Liverpool's 3rd.
    Playing wide right, he was very active in the high press, winning the ball on quite a few occasions. To my eyes, he had a very effective game.
