  1. Did anybody catch why Montgomery was subbed for Norman Jr.? Wondering if this was a tactical decision or if he picked up an injury.
  2. St. Lawrence Laurentians: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Lawrence_Laurentians
  3. Wonder if TFC will look to transition Shaffelburg to LB in 2021. Could be Laryea level on the left side.
  4. Minutes not easy to come by for young players under Bruce Arena. Must speak to the potential he sees in him or his work ethic in training.
  5. Much higher quality than the Ottawa-York game earlier. Once HFX’s pressing midfield trio gassed out, you could really see Pacific’s quality in midfield take over. Looking forward to watching both of these teams continue; several bright spots on both sides.
  6. Good breakdown of him positionally and tactically at Gent. Seems he would be be best suited to play underneath a true 9 like Cavallini or Larin.
  7. Here’s my vision on a CPL academy system... I think the provincial programs and their funding should be replaced by CPL academies to help subsidize the costs. A collaborative approach between CPL clubs, the CSA, and the provincial governing bodies would go a long way to ensure youth development is being pushed in the same direction. Provincial teams were necessary when Canada did not have professional clubs but they are no longer the best use of financial resources. Under the current set up, the best players in each province train at an elite level from the ages of 13-16, mostly fre
  8. The attacking mid group looks pretty solid with Riggi, Marshall, Bent and Kreim. Still hoping they bring in an established #9. Garcia is a frustrating finisher and I feel his best position is playing underneath. Sanoh could be a gem but he’s unproven.
  9. Love these types of signings because this is the type of player who likely never would have gotten a shot at becoming a professional footballer prior the CPL. Exciting times for Canadian soccer. He was no doubt a dominant player at the amateur levels so it will be interesting to see what he can do at the pro level. The squad has a nice young core leading into the new year. Would like to see the roster rounded out with a few more guys resigned like N’Sa, Arnone, Bona and Kourrouma. Excited to see what players come in at the top end of the roster as promised. Hope we’re in play for Giguere
  10. Agree with most of this ^^^. Would like to see a core of 12-15 returning players to ensure cohesion. KEEP: Oxner, N’Sa, Arnone, Lee, Hocine, Bona, De Carolis, Sukunda, Rampersad, Iida, Kourrouma, Garcia, Skublak. I suppose keep Firth as well. I would add in Langwa but I heard he was a bit of a cancer in the locker room. Even had a physical altercation with Steve Hart. I’m okay with De Carolis being the #1 left back. Definitely need some quality additions going into year 2. Agreed defensively we were relatively solid. Biggest needs are a goal scoring 9, wingers, CM, and a GK to compete with Oxn
  11. Would like to see Jordan Perruzza get a crack. He has 7 goals in USL One, tied for 2nd with Ricardo Pepi of FC Dallas who’s one of the hottest prospects in North America at the moment. Bair was pretty disappointing in u20 qualifying and he hasn’t really sparked yet with the Caps. Question marks around basically everyone at the #9 outside of David. Luckily midfield looks relatively solid.
  12. I tried to order the season subscription with my season ticket promotion code but I entered an incorrect digit on the payment page. When I re-entered my credit card info the site said my promo code had already been used. Anyone else run into this issue/have any suggestions? I filled out one of their contact forms but I doubt they will get back to me in time before the Wanderers kick off tonight. I'm only interested in subscribing if I get the season ticket holder discount.
  13. I think a Wanderers u20 team would be a welcomed addition and refreshing for the league. Similar to how the NS Canada Games team competes for a season and-a-half prior to the Canada Games tournament. As mentioned, there's a petty large disconnect between the Senior Men's division and the youth leagues. For example the 4 main HRM clubs: Western Halifax Durty Nelly's, Halifax City, Suburban FC and United DFC are mainly university players or alumni (of which 90% I would say are +23). And at the senior level, players move freely from club to club every year, so I suspect there would be very little
  14. I would be pretty disappointed with the NSSL if that were the case in Halifax. If the Wanderers started up a youth academy at the u14/u16 levels, I could see there being some animosity from the local clubs if they were simply poaching the best players without buildings partnerships, providing coaching education, etc. Once players age out of the provincial programs, there is a major drop off until AUS basically. This is the age where the majority of players drop out of the game all together. In the last few years there have been as few as 3 actives clubs at the u18 level (1 being from the South
  15. This signing is as pathetic as Jackie Moon playing power forward for his own ABA franchise
