  1. So I woke up this morning and immediately came to this page - I was stunned. It seemed Canada may have lost...then saw we won. 1-0 perhaps, winner from David. Then checked the news and saw it was a blow out 4-0. Man, have expectations from the V's changed over the years!
  2. Wouldn't playing in June actually mean he would return fitter and in better game shape? Playing at the high level would also presumably up his game. Two sides to this coin.
  3. @Corazon Thanks for the update - it seems to me that we have more Canadians playing this year than we did last year at the same time. Importantly, for me, is also the fact that the top 5 in player minutes are solid CNT contributors (and not over the hill players on the decline) and the next 5 (and 11-15) include some exciting young prospects. And kudos to TFC for playing 5 Canadians the other night - we're getting there.
  4. Cavs still benefiting from familiarity - big time. Pacific is just so young, I never considered them contenders in the early stretch.
  5. It's pretty funny, no one but FIFA was really interested in a 48 team shared tournament but FIFA persisted and tried to pressure v the Middle East countries to accept it - didn't work so now they have to backtrack.
  6. I hope you both are correct - but it's different when you're a winger and there's four behind you and when you're essentially a wing back and there's only 3 behind you. I can't see him succeeding in the latter formation against the likes of Mexico or even the US - and on the right side. I didn't watch much Cardiff City this year, so happy to be proven wrong if he can do it.
  7. This is my thought, ZBG not really suited for a 3 man back and Hoilett can't track back and defend in a 3-5-2. I suspect this line up will only work against inferior teams. Maybe that's why Max is in the nets too
  8. This will be the deepest squad we've sent to the GC, well, ever. We need to win, not "look to the future". Borjan gives us the best opportunity to do so.
  9. Which is no less than they would deserve. At this point in time, the majority of our players aren't here because they chose us over other competitive offers.
  10. ...because they benefit from continuity. It will even out in the Fall.
  11. I agree - love the quote and also think he could be a nice player from the bench this GC.
  12. @Obinna Yes, very shortly after signing. Edit: https://york9fc.canpl.ca/article/york9s-emilio-estevez-called-up-to-chinese-taipei-national-team
  13. That was it, the A League. Thanks.
  14. We can build a nice team from that list!
  15. This maybe a stupid question, but I thought that by virtue of Jamaica's position in the Nations League (8th) they didn't qualify for the Gold Cup? Why the nervousness about finishing in the top 6 if number 7 and 8 qualified?
  16. I count four CPL players in total, two being keepers.
  17. Interesting I see the US stole Tyler Boyd from New Zealand. That looks a bit desperate.
  18. A little disappointed with this, but in reality I guess he's wasn't going to feature for us much now or in the future.
  19. Who would you have? And you can't add names without subtracting names! Edit - I now see you have Carducci over Pantemis. That's pretty minor mate, Pantemis won't make the final team.
  20. Carducci has played well, from what I have seen.
  21. ...not to mention that he switched to defence from forward about 3-4 years ago. It's a phenomenal rise, really.
  22. Former striker shows his class. He's been pinned to the bench since the first few matches so hopefully he's earned some additional game time.
  23. I don't see him making the 40 - it's a wonderful time, we can debate whether a guy playing regularly in MLS even makes the 40 man roster. #allezlesrouges
  24. I suspect familiarity is the reason for the good form. There may be a leveling effect as time passes. But if what you're saying holds true into the second half of the year, I'll wholeheartedly agree with you.
