    Imagine being 23 and having played for your senior national team for eight years.
    Career-wise she's just out of school and getting started, she's in the best place in the world she could be, she trains with the best players in the world and the cultural and language issues are manageable. It takes time to adjust from playing and training day in and day out with university players to the best in the world. It's a process and it just takes time. The recipe and ingredients are world class.

    I don't. Not because I have anything against One Soccer, but because more and more leagues are going behind a paywall in this country and I don't think that's healthy for the sports growth.

    This was left field and man did Nef and Rollins just lose so much credibility. They literally each reported last week that there was virtually 0 chance and no investor.

    Pretty disrespectful to our former Captain, and most capped player. But I won’t call you any names for it. 

    When you talk about all time greats in Canadian football - Julian De Guzman will and always should be mentioned.

    If we aren't faced with restrictions on who can be called up during the March window.
    Here's how I would build both teams for March fixtures:

    - 24 guys for the WCQ (since it doesn't seem like there are rules on how much guys you can have).
    - Notable omissions: WCQ  = Ferreira (although it seems likely that he would be included) & James. OQ = Shaffelburg, Halbouni, Dunn, 
    - This factors in that some players (Millar, & Paton) wouldn't be released for OQ but would be for WCQ.
    - This factors in that some players (Brym, Corbeanu, Borges) would be available for OQ due to their club situations. 
    I believe with this squad makeup we could have our core guys together for what would be the first time in almost 17 months, and have a strong U24 team that is strong enough to qualify.

    This guy has played 6 minutes this season... why is this even worth an announcement? Gutierrez and Corbeanu never had announcements and are much more significant.

    We can’t get upset that journalists don’t cover Canadian soccer enough, then get upset at Canadian journalists for covering Canadian soccer. IF he was told on the record by a reliable source that Yankov was coming, of course he’s going to report it.

    I know this is somewhat old but my account just got approved
    Romania is in a bad moment with a new inexperienced manager and a dozen players missing for covid and injury, and yeah the last ten years has been the worst decade ever .. but still not that terrible. Lazio veteran Stefan Radu not playing for the national team hasn’t helped either , or injury prone Florin Andone and Vlad  Chiriches
    Seem to be making a comeback though, U21s qualified to second Euros in a row after making semis in 2019. a few players starting to show up in Italy
    Radu Dragusin played in a couple games for Juve already at 18 as a CB, and newly turned 18yo AM/CM Catalin Cirjan is in Arsenal’s first team now too, but neither of them were called to the seniors because they’re not ready (and only Dragusin played for the U21s so far, 2 caps. both are fully Romanian leaving the country at 16 btw)
    So I think it’s the same with Corbeanu, glad he’s doing well for the U23s at Wolves but an appearance on their bench in the Prem doesn’t mean he’d be considered yet for the national team. That said Romania probably should have approached him after the way he played with the U19s, seems to have a good future,  he could have at least gone to the U21 Euros with Dennis Man going to seniors recently, but I’m happy it looks like Canada’s got another talent coming up. I hope Flores sticks around too 
    as a Canadian-Romanian, looking forward to the futures of both countries in football seeming to be on the rise 👍
    Canada in particular deserves this for all the investments made and all of the dual nationals choosing other NTs over the years. Davies has really helped lead the path and give these kids confidence in Canada’s future. Helps to be hosting WC 2026 too

    I watched most of Minnesota's game just because of St. Clair, and tbh, without him, Minnesota doesn't make it as far as they did this last season, period. St. Clair kept them in games they had no business being in. Besides, Max hasn't been playing lately, so right now, based on form alone, St. Clair should be the number 2 keeper, and tbh, would personally be comfortable with him starting if Borjan was not available.

    Surrey United/ Caps/Lank FC product, turns 19 next week. Has been involved in a few national team youth camps under both Jazic and Gale. Looks to be projecting to be a LB/CB.
    The link below heavily promotes Lank FC/Academy, which Google searches lead me to believe is a business operation originally out of Trinidad, who helped bring and settle him to Portugal for the past year or so. Lank bought 90% of a fourth tier Portuguese club, Vilaverdense to presumably drive forward their plans to market and sell young players to European clubs: http//www.lankfootballnews.com/lank-fc-acquires-90-of-vilaverdense-sad--groupo-lank-fc-detem-90-da-sad-do-vilaverdense

    The video mentioned he had an ACL injury last year and Braga must think highly of him to have signed him after recovering from something of that magnitude this young.
    The contract-signing video: 
    Congrats and good luck to the kid. We could use some more breakthrough players coming out of BC.

    Episode #33 - Janine and Drew Beckie
    Episode #33 - The Snobs are joined by Janine and Drew Beckie. What a pure pleasure to interview two incredible Canadian athletes who are both extremely humble and hard working. How could anyone not love these two? Janine Beckie is currently a star forward on the Canadian Women's National team as well as Manchester City in England's Women's Premier League! Drew Beckie played PDL under Marc, Jason and Stephen as well as with the Ottawa Fury NASL and USL teams. They both have some great life stories that people can learn from as well as some fun sibling rivalry. How do they handle Marc's Rapid Fires and Would you rathers? Tune in an find out.

    While Ayo has played in the US youth setup, my understanding is that he has never dismissed Canada.  He obviously would have some affinity for this country considering he grew up here and still lives here.  If he chooses to play for us, I will cheer him on like crazy. He is a good young striker who has options in front of him.  I will wait until he either explicitly ties himself to the US or blatantly respects us before being critical.  To date, he hasn’t done anything I object to.

    I think the environment is probably great for her. Remember Davies didn't get much of a chance at first with Bayern, there is definitely a transition period. Also look at that Chelsea squad. 
    Also, you did get to see Leon go on a great run and cross for a tap in.
