  1. Id love Matt lam. But none of the canpl clubs can afford him with this cap. Canpl clubs can't compete with HKPL
  2. I don't think it's available on chromebook. The version that is, FM Touch, doesn't allow mods, and doesn't have CanPL official DLC available either.
  3. Wow big mistake by si games. Pregame editor is half the game for most people
  4. Which version of FM do you have - the epic one just released or through steam? And which OS?

  6. To summarize: Canadian Premier League players players are angry. The 25% pay 'deferral' is now confirmed to be a cut. And to rub salt in the wound, 5% is further taken out to be used in a pool for performance bonuses. And while the league expects to restart with a 11 game tournament held either in Victoria or Charlottetown, they refuse to guarantee that COVID19 testing will be available. ... All this, while the league is pocketing gov't subsidies in relation to COVID19. It's no wonder that after months, the league has refuse to recognize the players' union, and gone radio silent to inquiries. This is utterly shameful, and the players ought to just boycott this tournament.
  7. Furlano certainly had the best pedigree out of the bunch given his experience in TFCII (other than maybe Zambazis, though there were all these murmurs that he only landed in Greece because an uncle owned the club or soemthing?), and seemed closest to signing with a CanPL team given his trial with Cavalry? So agreed. I know Gogarty got promoted as this versatile defender that can play all along the backline, but feel he did better playing more centrally. I'll have to rewatch tapes, but I thought he was a decent passer of the ball from that position?
  8. The big parallel I am seeing is with Tsun Dai at Wolves (also Chinese owner). Tsun Dai, like Estevez, has shown sparks of potential, and certainly outside of Lam Zhi Gin has played at very high level for a Hong Kong player. But ultimately, Tsun Dai wasn't able to start a single game with Oxford before suddenly getting snapped up by Wolves. Tsun Dai has kind of languished in the reserves before transfer to China League 1 (div 2) side Shenzhen FC.
  9. Don't disagree with this assessment, but just a quick point about young players not finding clubs, I am genuinely surprised that Gogarty and Zambazis hasn't found clubs. They both impressed me and have a lot of upside.
  10. And to be clear, it's actually union cards signed. I know there are players who were stuck overseas and couldn't sign cards, so support is likely even higher.
  11. https://theprovince.com/sports/soccer/j-j-adams-players-vote-to-ratify-union-after-cpl-wage-cuts-fast-track-plans Excellent summary of the union drive. As I've said, the main goal is to challenge the unilateral ways in which CanPL has made decisions, and to ensure players don't bear the brunt of the outbreak. Also, it's pretty seldom that you see a union drive campaign get such unanimous support at the stage of card signing - 140 out of 159 players have signed cards. I am hearing that the number would've been even higher had it not been players still stuck overseas.
  12. Average wage is 30k, and I know many earning closer to 15-20
  13. The owners are taking risks associated with an investment. The players are being philanthropic by subsidizing and mitigating those risks by taking on poverty level contracts. But all this is besides the point since according to people I've spoken to the main contention isn't actually money, but accountability and transparency. The players aren't looking for a fight - they are looking to collaborate with the league. It's pretty evident that the ones at the moment looking for a fight are the bosses.
  14. Murmurs are that the timing of this coincided with the lack of consultation for the deferrals. While money isn't the priority from everything I am hearing, players feel an urgency to have a seat at the table in these uncertain times.
