  1. Thomas has some steel in him. I doubt Cavalry would have gotten all those easy corners if they had to push him around.
  2. Vanney loves Deleon (who is still a winger), Shaff (5 years younger and cheaper) has way more upside to Telfer (whether he has a goal or not, Telfer only has 1 in similar number of games). If they deemed him expendable this season starting with no Benezet or Gallardo.. I dont think Vanney will re sign him. I'm not saying this is what i would do..but it fits vanney. If we have a new coach its a different ballgame.
  3. I think Arfield can do anything defensively Piette does if he is asked too. But he can jump up in the play and make a difference offensively and Piette hasnt shown that yet. I would go with Arfield and Kaye in the middle of a 4-2-3-1. We need goals, we need to win this one at home.
  4. Well at least Telfer has done everything possible to leverage TFC. He has gone down and played very well with Y9, got into CNL games with T+T, got a ton of experience. But it wouldnt surprise me that TFC dont re-sign him. Deleon has been good, Shafflebourg is young and promising and they have the 2 big new signings at wing. Jayden Nelsen is in the que and might get a shot next year. It would be good for the league if Telfer could parlay his CPL loan into a upward move somewhere.
  5. I remember Obinna, but it wasnt like with Telfer or Cordova this last camp where plenty of people were strongly advocating for them to be invited. Or like Kaye was tearing up USL and it was an obvious choice. I dont know who picked the squad for the Aspire tournie, but didnt they announce Zambrano before the roster for Qatar?? Doesnt really matter, Kaye had been in that youth carabean tour earlier anyways so everyone at CSA should have known all about him. The big thing was that Zambrano was the one to put him out with the big boys at the gold cup and EVERYONE was pleasantly surprised at that he didnt look out of place. And I think everyone would credit that as being his breakout, and its been a meteoric rise ever since then.
  6. Holy moley?? He was not the full time starter for Louisville before the gold cup. Nobody on here was advocating for him to go to the gold cup. And he went on a tear AFTER the gold cup. Scored 3 goals in 4 games or something like that, team of the week etc. And I thought Zambrano had seen Kaye with the u-23's in Qatar?? I'm not slamming Kaye, I am saying that there are guys at that level that no one is looking at that are capable of making a jump with the right circumstances.
  7. Keita and Cognale have been starting a lot for Columbus. Not tango and cash, not Laurel and Hardy, not Crockett and Tubbs. You dont think there isnt a few CPL CB that Columbus would give a try??
  8. Oh for F%cks sake, does anyone watch Columbus or CIncy??? They are terrible!! We know Calgary beat Vancouver already, of course there is a chance that someone in CPL replaces some skidmark starting in MLS right now. Kaye wasnt a stand out in USL and took off in MLS the next year and was an allstar the next. And there is going to be 2 expansion teams next year. The right guy, the right situation..it can happen.
  9. Did you check the ticketmaster blue dots and match up the announced to what you thought were there? Of course we'll need screen captures of the highlights showing the crowd and the opinion of random A-holes from reddit before we can be really sure. Ooops, sorry I thought this was the CPL attendance thread.
  10. Sure it is. Those 2 teams have played a bunch of exciting games, even when they were sucking in regular season MLS. Montreal will be playing its CDN kids and they'll want to stick it to Toronto extra bad. An TFC will prob play Fraser, Shaffelbourg, maybe even Okello. Maybe Montreal will play Pantemis, ZBG, Choinere, Tabla, SHome etc. It'll be worth it.
  11. Remember, someone is always accusing us V's of pushing an Us vs them agenda with MLS, seems like Garber has a BEEF with us.
  12. MLS is a a lot better league. Period. More money, DP, TAM GAM etc allow them to build rosters that are clearly superior. But top to bottom?? HAHA, there are some **** teams and plenty of **** players getting starts in MLS. I am sure if you took a top 11 of the CPL at the end of the year, you could fit a couple of them into a MLS starting job somewhere depending on need. The same way a few USL guys move up and a small % win spots.
  13. This is a Tony Soprano/ganster move. Youse guys better let Vancouver start a USL team in canada (even though they shut it down on their own saying it was TOO EXPENSIVE, and montreal shut theirs down on their own as well), or there will be trouble! And dont start causing trouble for Ottawa or TFC2...its our turf..back off! Or if you watch the WIRE....Avon needs his corners!!!
  14. So we are back to the question of why the other networks wont show them....having the highlights on CBC sports, or sports net would do a lot for the prestige, visability and profile of the CPL. How does it hurt them...CBC actually has a dog in the fight and would probably love to have more viewers when they broadcast the CPL.
  15. GEEEPERS BATMAN......reserve teams!!! There is going to be parrot **** all over this thread. Garber is goign to threaten CSA about MLS teams dropping investment in CDN soccer unless they play ball with regards to USL and Canadian clubs?? Seems like this is a premptive shot across the bow for the Ottawa sanctioning baloney that is coming up soon. F&ck Garber!! If the Cdn MLS clubs stop investing in CDN soccer then they can see their CDN support/fan base dry up. “Now at some point that needs to be resolved or the Canadian player is not going to get developed as effectively as they need to get developed. Right now, the Whitecaps don’t have a USL association because they’re not permitted to have a USL team here in Vancouver. Toronto has a USL 3 team, and there are a wide variety of reasons for that, and Montreal they had an affiliation [with USL side Ottawa Fury].” Garber
  16. This reminds me of the boy who cried wolf. If you talk nonsense 90% of the time, eventually no on listens to anything you say that has any value. And then you can make a big show of "getting back to the purpose of the thread" when it was your baloney that derailed it. You started this "papering the stadium" and claiming false attendance numbers before the first ball was kicked. For what purpose??? I really dont understand, most intelligent people can admit there are a million different factors going into whether the league survives or not.
  17. I did a double take on Seedorf and wonder, wow he must really take care of himself.
  18. I never...EVER thought about what percentage of tickets sales were freebies, or would have ever dreamed of searching ticket master to try count blue dots and prove/disprove a teams announced attendance. Let alone do that after almost every game all season. The almost constant narrative that started IMMEDIATELY after launch, that certain teams were in trouble, the league isnt doing as well as everyone here thinks and the fact finding missions to go and try and prove it, for some sort of NAH NAH NAH, I"m smarter you than you ego trip, is what really makes me wonder. I cant believe this lasted the entire season.
  19. Geesh, dont say that. When it was suggested a run out with CMNT and a goal would help get Larin on track everyone was offended. Personally i agree that some u-23 success might build up his confidence.
  20. The worst part is, he got rewarded for a couple of those dives earlier in the season. And now once he gets into the box, it looks like he is thinking penalty rather than finishing the run, creating a scoring chance etc. Still it takes all kinds, and I can sure see some CONCACAF refs falling for that.
  21. You are the one bringing any supremecy BS into this. The thread was talking about the CPL highlights getting on more TV networks. You brought up minor leagues etc.
  22. I have seen Valor highlights on the local Manitoba TV, but never on TSN.
