  1. What were other key points from the event? I was unfortunately unable to attend...
  2. Expect a set piece goal from Edmonton. Pacific struggles with Edmonton's size and they're missing their better CBs.
  3. Pacific looked good collectively going forward, some good passes and runs. Valour with less chances but Pacific taking soft fouls so that's hurt them.
  4. Fair enough. At this point in the season I'm good with Silberbauer. He has a vision for how he wants his team to the play and will make the difficult choices to implement it. Once more players return from being injured I expect the defence to look better but overall he's done well and I'm hoping he stays on.
  5. https://www.canadiansoccernews.com/forums/topic/76964-poll-whos-the-first-manager-to-get-the-boot/ Granted a lot of these votes are probably from people just looking at standings. It'd be disappointing to see that much turnover in the roster. My guess is we won't lose more than two of the U21s by the start of next year. Contract situations will be a big factor though so I probably shouldn't start guessing yet. Any thoughts on who you think won't be around - and why?
  6. I'm curious about the contract information too. Not just the youngsters but the frequently injured vets as well. As good as some of the young players have looked this season I don't think any of them have shown near enough consistency to make a move upward. I know people are disappointed with Silberbauer, but as far as developing young players goes, he gives playing time based on merit and lets players try positive, attractive soccer. Look at how Verhoven has played at RB these last few games, lots of coaches discourage a defender taking opponents on in their own half. I think most of the young core will be around next season.
  7. Passing was shockingly bad by Pacific tonight. Gotta be a lot better if you want to be a possession based team.
  8. https://www.timescolonist.com/sports/help-arrives-for-young-pacific-fc-squad-1.23887634 Hoping we don't concede 3 again. The backline should be better with Staro and Gonzalez expected to start. I think it will be a tough game for Campbell as he seems to struggle with fixture congestion.
  9. With 3 games in the next 7 days Pacific desperately need players returning to full health.
  10. I'm curious if they will. The entire starting backline is out injured for an unknown amount of time. If a couple players return in the next couple weeks things look better.
  11. Match preview I never caught why Chung wasn't in the line-up last game but I imagine he'll be starting again. No Gonzalez means Verhoeven slides back into midfield. Otherwise I don't think Pacific will look any different. I imagine Cavalry will have a slightly different look due to suspensions and the Whitecaps game.
  12. Small sample size I know but the STH behind me come down from Nanaimo and they mentioned they wouldn't come if games were in Victoria proper.
  13. A couple things to add: Hojabrpour looked really good yesterday breaking up plays and making interceptions. While Gonzalez is the general in the middle, Hojabrpour might be able to make that second spot his. Will be interesting to see how he does next game with Gonzalez suspended. The biggest issue with Campbell is no one seems to be able to work out how he wants the ball. I've never seen so many miscues for the final ball with him. In his defence he has to switch quite frequently from winger to target striker but he has the tools to succeed in either role. I'm just as curious to see what the best line-up is once more people are healthy. It's interesting to note that even with such a small roster we've had 8 different players play out on the wings.
