    Kashima 2 Persepolis 0
    Adam was an unused sub for the 1st leg Asian Champions League Final.   I watched the last 30 minutes, and Kashima were in control for the most part.  Persepolis had a few half chances on the counter.  Not a bad result for Iranian club, as the 2nd leg will be a tough atmosphere for Kashima with around 100,000 in attendance.  
    It is amazing that Adam was playing for the Ryerson Rams only 2 years ago.

    Yes he has signed.  
    Here is my translation of the Finnish article:
    "New player contract - versatile Jonas Häkkinen has signed with Vaasan Palloseura 
    Vaasan Palloseura [VPS] has signed a player contract with the young Finnish player Jonas Häkkinen. The contract is 1+1 years. [unspecified whether the option is one way or two way] 
    Jonas Häkkinen is a multi-functional player who owns both the Finnish and Canadian passports, and who can play both stopper and defensive midfielder. 
    "For the last few years he has played stopper, but before that he has played defensive midfielder, as well", VPS head coach Petri Vuorinen comments. 
    Häkkinen has played his entire career in Vancouver, where he has played in the Whitecaps academy. Häkkinen has Finnish parents and he speaks good Finnish, although his native tongue is English. 
    "Jonas has trained with us for quite a while already. He came to Finland to uplift his career. Comparing him with other players of his generation (1999), I believe that he has the full potential to succeed in Finnish Premier League", Vuorinen analyzes. 
    Very little about this promising player is known in Finland. Contact between the player and the club came through his agent. The youngster has trained with VPS for a month already. 
    "The agent suggested that we give Jonas a trial. We decided to take him along and have been judging his play. In the last few years, many young players looking to develop have trialed for us. This time we found a good "match". I do not think many have heard of him here, even though he is Finnish. He is a new face for many here in that sense."
    In addition to his playing skills, there is another thing Vuorinen specifically likes about Häkkinen. 
    "He has a very tough but healthy attitude about sports and football in general. All that is right", Vuorinen comments. 
    Jonas' own interview will be done during November. 
    --------
    Since it's my first post, I figure it's fine to use this space to say hello everybody, too. I am a VPS fan from Finland - a cold, stable Northern country, with an under-performing National Team with a history of promising players selecting some another country, and whose general public has an unhealthy obsession with this sticky-sport played on ice.
    Suppose this description also explains to you all why I have somehow developed kind of a weird sympathetic affinity towards the "soccer people" in Canada, and hence I have been following your NT for the past few years, including lurking on this forum occasionally. So I figured that now that this guy signed with my local club team, it would be a good excuse to register here too. So I do hope you guys don't mind having me as an "outsider" for our countries are yet to develop a fierce rivalry in this sport. (Although I also wouldn't mind, if in the next few years one developed over Häkkinen's services at the senior level. )
    ---------
    Would Jonas warrant his own thread, btw? Now that he's going to be playing here, I would be more than glad to contribute with updates on Jonas etc. since I watch every VPS game anyway.

    As Leganés has come up a bit with a few Canadians, I wonder if there is a deal going on. 
    Here's how it works, or could work.
    A players "signs" with a club or academy or training group, paying them a fair amount for their services.
    In return, this soccer business tries to "place" them somewhere that will somehow fulfill their promises of a successful future. So they make a deal with a club, and pay them to take their players, but on a lower level team, in this case a C team in 6th tier. Now 6th in Spain is not that bad, I know because I watch it, but it is not near a proper professional level for a Canadian, the way Spanish 4th tier might be. 
    And then they get to announce that this or that player now plays in this great club, call it Leganés. A La Liga team, and been in top flight for a few years now, so like a Brighton and Hove perhaps, a Chievo Verona level team. And they throw out rumours, that he is on this A team, or this level, when in fact it is not true. Why does the truth get stretched like this? Because they know that no one will check, that the player is happy to have a hyped resume, and they then put this half-truth on their web to attract more unsuspecting young players, who will continue to feed the machine. 
    I have no idea if this is what really happened with Bile Hood Waheleye. But it appears to be happening, as we are seeing it appearing on this board in a way I am totally opposed to. Because there is a degree of scam involved, and that cannot be.
    So edit, and to conclude: let's not feed the lies and promote falsehood, as it advances absolutely nothing, and helps some people make money in a way that is dishonest. So no half-truths, no BS, and no more feeding these soccer investors preying on the unsuspecting, which we have a lot of in Canada.

    As I said, he is not on the B roster in Tercera, fourth tier
    https://www.rffm.es/pnfg/NPcd/NFG_VisEquipos?cod_primaria=1000119&Codigo_Equipo=94 or on the C roster. 
    or on the C roster in Primera Aficionados, fifth tier Madrid region
    https://www.rffm.es/pnfg/NPcd/NFG_VisEquipos?cod_primaria=1000119&Codigo_Equipo=4936105
    I get a little teed off with these false reports coming out. He did play for the C last season, as I say, in 6th tier. 
    What do people get out of incorrectly reporting on players, like Wakeleleye and Matis Romero? I don't get it.

    I don't see how the CSA is supposed to know which players have talent if supposed soccer fans on this board are not even able to put 2 and 2 together. 
    The kid was playing for Malaga youth, then Leganés youth, apparently on the Juvenil A team, at age 17. Since this means nothing to the majority here, no point even trying to draw lessons about the CSA being aware of him. The overall ignorance is overall and, I'd say, ignorant about things overall. 
    In any case, as he is no longer at Leganés, as his own social media accounts say, better figure out where he is and why he left before insisting too much on him right yet.

    Just because someone plays in North America does not mean they are automatically better than European based players.   
    It is tough to compare MLS academies with those in Croatia, Bulgaria or Serie C.  
    I just want to see a Canadian team back at the U20 WYC, and I don't really care where the players are coming from.  At the 2001 WYC Canada had players from Wilfred Laurier University, 7 players from the NCAA but yet they managed to surpass expectations.
