    SpecialK reacted to Shway in Gold Cup 2021   
    Man I feel like the final 23-30 man roster will have a lot of interesting names, nevermind the 60 man preliminary roster.
    We are faced with several factors that will ultimately determine our reality, which are:
    - We have June WCQ the month before, JH has stated he will have to rotate the squad. Our best players are in Europe, meaning that they would most likely be in that team. 
    - Knowing that, it's been stated that the Gold Cup would be a B team, however MLS is not taking a break throughout the entire tournament. So again we will be faced with a dilemma with the release of players (specifically with the Canadian teams) mixed in with guys not doing double month duty. 
    All in all, there's been talk of a B team, but with the several factors I suspect it will be an B-/C+ team. So. I'll predict at least 25% of these names like Elva, Trafford, Paton, Ricketts, Cordova, James, Hamilton, Leutwiler, Godinho, Halbouni, Twardek, Brym, Dias, Romeo, Nogueira, Simpson, Jebbison, Mitrovic, and maybe.....Yankov.

    I think that statement is really important. I had the feeling that was the problem before... what with him using a CDM as a late game sub instead of his only attacking option off the bench. That trust is what probably gets him subbed on.

    I know this gonna sound weird, but idea. Bring St Pierre and Miquelon and St. John’s into the CPL. St Pierre and Miquelon would have possible options with French players. Plus their currency  is in euros ( so cheaper to run ). Also it would create a Canada vs France feel. St Pierre and Miquelon is in talks with CONCACAF and the French football federations helping in development.

    York in 2019 avg attendance was 2,942 and York as pop of around 1.1 million people. This population argument is BS. If a place is hungry for sports, they will support it. Especially a French European market. It’s the same with the North. Yellowknife is a great example, they had like 2000 people show up for a NHL hockey Alumni game. Just imagine a pro team( the only one there ) , with professional players with marketing and nice stadium. I bet the whole city would be there to support.

    I’m sure they could beat Panama with those guys but it’s too late for that. I agree it can be a domino effect but it’s hard to get the first domino to fall. Why would any of them want to fly across the ocean to play in these competitions? Are any of them born in Barbados or have a serious connection to them? It’s difficult to convince players with tenuous ties to join up. We wouldn’t have convinced Arfield to join if we didn’t have a foundation of solid/promising players already. We could sell the dream of a World Cup. That’s a tough sell for Barbados right now.
