  1. There's also another guy playing LB at a reasonably good level we could plug in back there if necessary 😁
  2. Seems Bassong can play either side but he's naturally a left back, imagine that's where he'd mostly slot in for us.
  3. Watching every game I found Owundi to be fairly inconsistent, some very good games and a lot of mediocre ones. There was no faulting his effort or toughness but his ball skills weren't great, he almost always passed sideways or back, and was prone to a few careless plays most games. I always felt a lot calmer with Edgar and Krutzen together back there, and found the ball moved out of the backfield much more efficiently.
  4. Aidan Daniels, who I thought might end up with York or Halifax, signs with Colorado Switchbacks.
  5. Ended up having a decent career in Singapore did he not? I thought he was potentially hoping to play for Singapore at one point.
  6. As mentioned above, you also accept his clear statement about a 10 team league in 2020? I'm generally confused about CanPL signing practices, I'm not surprised a Jamaican reporter might be too, or that the Jamaican coach he quotes might be equally in the dark. This might be for a draft or just as likely it is for the pool of potential young import players we've heard rumours about, which makes some sense in terms of taking the scouting load off individual clubs and allowing them to spend more of their resources developing Canadian players.
  7. As far as I can see Reid never played for LeHavre in the second division in France, played a few games for LeHavre II in like the 5th division, and doesn't seem to be listed as part of either team anymore. I've looked and looked and can't find any sign of him.
  8. Looking at @Shway 's excellent list I narrowed things down a little further and put together my own not-so-shortlist. It truly is tough to pick 23 or whatever the number is you can call for an Olympic qualifying tournament. Such a positive change from the old days of scrounging up unnattacheds and NCAA players to fill out the roster. Assuming no Davies, David, Cornelius, or Miller; hoping Millar, Tabla, and Brault-Guillard will be available and Cristian Gutierrez and Martin Amuz will commit. Forward/Winger: Liam Millar, Theo Bair, Terran Campbell, Tajon Buchanan, Jacob Shaffelburg, Easton Ongaro Bubble: Jordan Perruzza, Charles Brym, Dario Zanatta, Malik Johnson Midfielder: Ballou Tabla, Shamit Shome, Mathieu Choiniere, Liam Fraser, Harrison Paton, Tristan Borges Bubble: Clement Bayiha, Alessandro Hojabrpour, Kris Twardek, Noah Verhoeven, Nate Verhoven, Ryan Raposo, Noble Okello, Diego Gutierrez Defender: Martin Amuz, Scott Kennedy, Thomas Meilleur-Giguere, Zachary Brault-Guillard, Marcus Godinho, Diyaeddine Abzi, Cristian Gutierrez Bubble: Chris N'Sa, Robert Boskovic, Callum Montgomery, Kadin Chung, Raphael Garcia, Julian Dunn-Johnson, Daniel Kinumbe,, Zoom Langwa Keeper: Dayne St. Clair, James Pantemis, Sebastian Breza Bubble: Axel Desjardins, Thomas Hasal, Alessandro Busti, Joakim Milli, Oliver Saundry I imagine there will be a lot of different preferences, maybe some I haven't listed here. Either way I'm very excited for this roster to come out, right now it is taking my mind off the possibility of missing the hex. If we do manage to qualify for Japan we'll be able to put together a hell of a squad when the big guns show up.
  9. Depends on Kilmarnock releasing him and on Liam's situation. I'd love to see Liam and would be a great opportunity for him to get his scoring touch going, he'll have to decide whether leaving might cost him playing time/starting opportunities with Kilmarnock at this early stage of his career.
  10. Big roster overhauls can often result in teams just staying on the mediocrity treadmill though. Has to be some sense of continuity and building. I would have thought keeping a few more key pieces like Kourouma and Bona would have been useful and then you can focus on upgrades in a few key areas. Hard to upgrade too many positions on a salary cap. Useful players are useful players, you replace useful known quantities with unknown quantities you may very well end up with downgrades. Such an advantage out of the gate too for teams who can return most of their core and build on last year's chemistry.
