  1. I was fearing FC Edmonton would be not so competitive this year after seeing some of the other teams at the bottom of the table adding possible difference making players, but I think the Aleman signing is one of the biggest of the offseason. FCE was lacking that type of creativity in the midfield, but with Keven in the middle and if Boakai can be anything like his past FCE self, this team got a lot more exciting. (and with an already strong defensive core, and the X Factor Ongaro up top) It feels to me that just about every CPL team outside of last year's top 2 was able to add at least one or two Canadians who could be amongst the top of the league at their position next season. York9: Petrasso, Manella Pacific: Bustos, TMG, Irving Valour: Aird, Levis, Pantemis HFX: LBG, Riggi, Sissoko FCE: Boakai, Aleman Ottawa: Fisk and who knows who else (Tissot would be a huge get) Add in all of the international players whom I do not know nearly as much about, and we may have a much more even table from top to bottom next season.
  2. Two spanish players to add to the rumour mill: Nacho Zabal: 33 year old GK playing for CD Calahorra in the Spanish 3rd division. Viti Martinez: 22 year old central midfielder playing for Gimnastic de Tarragona in the Spanish 3rd Division. Additional player of interest: Vashon Neufville: 20 year old English full back who has played youth for West Ham and England U17. (also has one Sky Bet League Two appearance). Possibly a relationship with Malyk Hamilton. I'd imagine some of these were trialists while the team was abroad.
  3. The bottom three players on that list had Instagram stories at the Atletico Madrid facility, so those are all but confirmed. Meanwhile, I believe it was Nef who already reported about John. Another speculative piece would be Maksym Kowal who recently exchanged follows with Dada-Luke and John. It seems as though Kowal has been knocking on the door of the CPL for awhile, so this should come as no surprise. 16 goals in 16 games in League1 Ontario this year, following stints in 3rd/4th tier Poland and the 1st tier of New Zealand. At age 28, this is likely make or break for him as a professional footballer. Keep in mind, many of these players may just be trialling.
  4. Last speculative bit from instagram. Considering that he was most recently followed by 4 confirmed signings, it seems that 23 year old Ghanaian attacking midfielder Bernardinho is in the Ottawa camp. He has most recently been playing for a third division Belgian club, on loan from First Division Belgian Club KV Westerlo. As much as I typically take social media followings with a grain of salt, the team is in a training camp and thus clearly has players who are meeting with each other for the first time (including players who may not be officially signed or announced).
  5. Still speculating off of Instagram, but it seems that Jamaican international Tevin Shaw may also be in camp with Ottawa. He's a 23 year old midfielder with 6 senior international caps, who most recently played for Portmore United in Jamaica.
  6. This is all speculation, but there's good reason to believe that the club has signed Francisco Acuna, a 32 year old Mexican midfielder playing for Puebla in Liga MX. He has most recently followed both Atletico Ottawa and Ben Fisk on Instagram, he made a story yesterday that he was heading to Spain, and today it was made official that he was departing Puebla.
  7. I’m assuming you mean Daniel Fernandes? GK spots are tight in this league. I could’ve seen him as a veteran in Edmonton to push James but I don’t it happens now. although, a guy like that could work out well as a safety net behind oxner in Halifax.
  8. It’s rumoured that David Monsalve is replacing him
  9. Golden Horseshoe and GTA are not the same
  10. Forge social media outlets have posted interviews with Klaidi Cela at the Sigma trials, so I’d assume he’s returning
  11. That agency is run by Nick Mavromaras, whose business partner has traditionally been Costa Smyrniotis so.......
  12. Isn't his agent Coach Bobby's brother? may explain it I'm not sure all of those players are leaving, as the article suggested there are more returning players still to be announced. I wouldn't mind Frano leaving to be a starter elsewhere in the league. Edgar is the most important one to me, I believe after a full season it will be clear he's the leagues best defender. Johnny Grant is another guy who I'd love to stay, but I think he could be a star elsewhere. If Novak stays, I hope it will be in a substitute role after signing a star striker. Another guy I wouldn't mind holding onto is Kladi Cela, who was good in few appearances.
  13. I honestly think Zis could be the guy who slides into a Borges like role if he moves on. Or at least could provide some depth in a similar role. A lack of CBs was always an issue last year as our backline rarely rotated. Nice to add some cover there. Agree that forward is our only real need right now.
  14. Forge got my guy Alex Zis who I made this thread about, so I'm quite ecstatic. On the other hand, surprised not to see Jackson Farmer selected. I figured a team like Pacific or Valour could use him.
  15. Won’t be surprised if he’s home on the island next season
