  1. Although Ben Fisk was born and grew up across the Georgia Strait in Vancouver, playing in Pacific FC’s inaugural Canadian Premier League game, a 1-0 win over HFX Wanderers FC at Westhills Stadium in Langford, felt like a homecoming for the 26-year-old. “Sunday was a pretty special one with all my friends and family there to watch,” Fisk said. “That was the first time in my pro career that I’ve had so many people in the stadium at one time and the fact that we were able to get the win made it that much more special.” After getting his start with the Vancouver Whitecaps’ Residency prog
  2. Yes. Yes they can. I'm calling a 2-1 scoreline with Pacific triumphing over Valour, with the game-winning goal coming in the dying minutes of the match. Can't wait to see those predictions come true. #ForTheIsle
  3. April finished off with a number of big wins and troubling losses. With the top-4 leagues, comprising 12 Canadian Teams, now actively playing, there’s been some interesting movement that is important to watch. It all came down to the final weekend, but Montreal Impact FC have flipped the script and taken the top spot from Toronto FC. With an elo-rating gap of only 7.877, this could flip back pretty easily with a pair of results. Similarly, Pacific FC are the first CPL club to reach top-of-the-table. With only 2-matches played in the league so far, that victory could be fleeting, espe

  5. Neither of those numbers are particularly high. Given that it's a niche interest, it isn't horrible, but considering the tickets are built into the app, seems strange Centre Circle hasn't broken the 10k+ barrier. If OneSoccer doesn't break 5k before the Fall Season, I'd be somewhat concerned. It's still early, we should see those numbers grow over the Spring.

  8. Well, there were two links in my post... but here's another: Click for FanPL - Rules
  9. Just going to bump this a little. @GuillermoDelQuarto has continued to update this endeavour via e-mail. I've put together the "official" rules, and have some preliminary points awarded for players. The points section still needs to be validated (double/triple checked), but should be pretty close for anyone who wants to create/run their own FanPL group. I'll try to keep updating the points, but the CPL stat system is a little clunky (and doesn't show who was subbed when), so there's some digging that needs to be done for every match. Hopefully this will improve as we move forward.
  10. I was asked to start posting links to NSXI's articles in the article section. I find it pretty strange that there would also be forum thread automatically created for each article posted, but that's how it's currently setup. Generally, we don't do too many match reports on NSXI, as we prefer to focus on interviews & storylines, so I don't think there will be 98 of these tactical analysis... I do anticipate a large number of posts (there are almost 2-dozen contributors after all). I like having it show up in the activity stream, but perhaps having it create a forum post directly is
  11. Me too. Fury would have been great to have in the league.
  12. It looked grim, really grim, you will recall. At this point last year with six games under their belt, Ottawa Fury had notched up four defeats and achieved only two draws. The team had just two points to show for 540 minutes or more of football, having conceded 14 goals, five of them in one game alone. This time around it looks nowhere near so ghastly, mercifully so. The extended pre-season spent in sun-splashed Florida evidently did the squad a world of good, as there is reason to believe that the Ottawa Fury may well have a half-decent season this year. ...

  14. April 27th, 2019 was a day for all of us Canadian soccer fans to remember for a long, long time. Our wildest dreams came to fruition at Tim Hortons field, where Forge FC took on York 9 FC in the inaugural Canadian Premier League match. While the event was very much a celebration all-round, we all know that the Canadian Premier League has been split up into 2 seasons, and with this first Spring season lasting just 10 matches, this was a rather important match for both teams – not just a soccer celebration.

  16. Among the many questions that have consistently been asked everyone watching the development of the Canadian Premier League: will there be a fantasy game? We briefly outline three options: the official CPL Centre Circle Q&A "Fantasy" game, our NSXI Score Prediction Fantasy Game, and @GuillermoDelQuarto's FanPL. Learn all about it on the NSXI Network.

  18. If there's anyone up in Sudbury, Ontario that would like to catch the Forge vs York match, I'll have it on my screen. Send a message and we can make a mini viewing party out of it.
  19. Paid for the annual. At $6.50/month, it's worth it for me. Not exactly much going on local, so I'll take what I can get.

  22. Hello everyone. After spending a whole 5-minutes with the official CPL "Fantasy" questionnaire in the Centre Circle App, I was woefully unsatisfied. As it looks like @GuillermoDelQuarto won't quite be able to get his fantasy league off the ground, I (quickly) put together a basic score prediction fantasy game. I've another day to tweak the rules, layout, etc before everything kicks off. So suggestions on tightening it up are welcome. Feel free to review the existing rules & points system on NSXI, and create an account to compete. I have a stack of V's and other scarves that
