    There would have been enough dates, particularly if they dropped next year's GC. The format was already flimsy at best and the lack of a "complete rankings cycle" exposed it further, thankfully we appear to have caught a break (for once?)
    The only question now is how they can lay an easy path for the US and Mexico but still have them play each other

    xcalibre reacted to yellowsweatygorilla in CanPL added to Football Manager 2020 as official DLC   
    Ok, so this is definitely a great effort from SI and encourage everyone to download the DLC to show support for the league. I am also honoured to have been looped in by the league for the announcement.
     
    That said, having a closer look at what was added - I think there still leaves a bit to be desired and there's still reason to play my megapatch file.
    Benefits to Official DLC over megapatch:
    -All of the intricate rules work properly, including rules like the u21 rule and Voy Cup domestic rule that are a little broken in the megapatch

    Negatives:
    -CanPL is forever stuck on the 2019 format - 10/18 game split
    -Voyageurs Cup is also stuck on 2019 format (with Ottawa fury playing even after they fold)


    And of course, you won't have my expanded DB of L1O, PLSQ, USL2 players; journalists, refs, etc. L1O, PLSQ are also not playable. Though I can easily create a separate file to fix that.

    tbf the Island team hardly needs to do preseason training in a warm-weather climate, but if the other 6 teams are going they might as well squeeze in!

    Good call on Blake Smith as the mystery Smith, he got cut from Cincinnatti last month and just recently "liked" a tweet from Mark Village about Pacific FC.
    That was me on reddit, I think I was confusing Jose Pina with "Pena" and assumed it was Adrian. AFAIK Adrian Pena isn't involved.

    Brilliant draw, especially because I assumed Cuba would've been secretly kept from drawing either Canada or the US, a bit like how UEFA keep certain nations from playing each other. The Cuban team usually don't leave with the entire squad when they play up here IIRC

    xcalibre got a reaction from Jmhutchinson in Dual Nationals Part 2 - Canada + ?   
    I always thought it would be cool to turn out for a random Pacific side, at least while indulging the fantasy that I could play footy at all. Even in my fantasy I assume I wouldn't be good enough for CanMNT. Why hate on players who are doing that for lesser teams than us? We have the youngsters coming through that we aren't going to need to rely on randoms as much as we used to...

    xcalibre got a reaction from SkuseisLoose in Herdman new head coach   
    Oh come on, Herdman isn't a graphic designer, and you just know the CSA is banking on his name/face recognition from 2015 as they try to make the men's team a household name too.
    I didn't watch the video (at work) but from reading Herdman's interview, I actually like that kind of transparency. For so long we wondered what kind of scouting and reaching out to players the CSA did, but deep down we know they weren't actually doing anything... now we have a coach who's on canucksabroad, in regular contact with prospects, and keeps us updated.
    WTF am I doing, defending the CSA and Herdman?? That 8-0 must have done something to me...

    I'm sure I read that Surrey will actually be bigger than Vancouver by 2030. Placing a team there makes a lot of sense for the long term.
    If we end up with pro/rel to a "CanPL 2", I could see multiple teams across the Lower Mainland, including the tri-cities (PoCo/Co/PoMo?)
