    Mikmacdo reacted to Unnamed Trialist in CPL Playing During the Coronavirus/Covid19 Pandemic   
    Ted, the low camera angle was poor for the broadcast image in general. The play is flat, you can't see how the teams are lined up, the distances are distorted, and as the camera was too close to the pitch, it did not follow the play properly. It has to be taken back away frm the touch line 5-10 metres and raised another 5. 
    Or shoot from the other side of the pitch, from the main stand. That way at least you could be watching the benches, if kept as they were, and have the light at your back from mid afternoon on.

    Solution play him at wingback with 3 at the back to provide cover.

    Me I think Larin should stay in Belguim   maybe move to a bigger Club there like a Club Brugge or Anderlecht  just for the reason of more plating time and confidence

    I hope we see Davies, David, Larin and Millar all in the Bundesliga next season. Then I hope Dusseldorf and Bremen get regulated, leaving Reyna, Mckennie, Adams and Brooks as the only Americans in the division. 
    Maybe then ESPN FC would have to settle for a "North" Americans in the Bundesliga power rankings

    Thanks for the update.
    James is sorta the forgotten man. I would love to see him win a spot with his club and bring some depth to the Canadian CB spot.

    Canada can beat any team with Nike as their jersey sponsor, even Netherlands who have had Nike as their sponsor for a while so the power of the Nike jersey is wearing off but has recently got the Nike jersey so I think they would win in the end, but what about Ghana their sponsor is Puma so it would be interesting if they played a friendly tournament before Qatar, but I think it would be 1. Canada 2. Netherlands 3. Ghana.

    Canada is going up because they have confident but Netherlands is going down even with players at big clubs but what do you think the score would be? I think for Canada they will score more goals with Davies at AM which is his best position, but David will score too from LS because if he moved to Lyon for playing time he will get more minutes and Depay would move to the bench, which is Netherlands biggest threat because of his consistence at Lyon and Manchester United, but let`s say they play I still think Canada wins because players like Jonathan David are become more total football and Netherlands is not really total football anymore.

    No way, considering the Netherlands current team,  Canada would destroy them easily. Canada has way more talent across the board. 
    When Canada gets to Qatar they'll definitely be able to beat the big teams, especially the teams that have quality but at worst Canada would get a draw, no doubt about it.

    I wouldnt be surprised if Jayden Nelson or Rutty are sure fire starters by then and I would switch to a 4-3-3 if they emerge. I think a 3-5-2 is the best system with Davies so I am going with that.

    Even 5 years back..2015 gold cup with Floro.  Stama, Ledgerwood, Edgar, Jakovic, Dejong.....Straith Deguzman, Akindele, Piette, Ricketts, Larin.  With HAber, Tiebert, Osorio and Hainault as first off the bench.  So lets say a 15man rotation, there is only Piette, Osorio, Larin maybe Tiebert and Akindele that would still be there only 5 years later.  Hoilet, Cavallini and Borjan prob should have been in 2015 and 2020, but its a hell of a turn over.

    The reason this exercise is so silly is because the only "locks" you have are Davies and David, and honestly who knows even then. You could chop and change the other nine guys from my line up and I wouldn't argue.

    With respect to Estevez, all anybody here in this thread has to do is look at Stouffvillain's proposed depth chart for Y9's 2020 season to see how much the Y9 fans generally rate Estevez. Something like the 6th choice in the front 3 going in.
    You'd think that it'd have to be like a top 10 player in the league that may get a shot in the Dutch D1. I think most Y9 fans would be hard-pressed to put Estevez in their top 10 for Y9 last season. I liked him as an option off the bench that did well in his minutes with his dribbling and shooting, but I thought he was quite raw tactically and decision-making. At least that is an aspect that can most definitely be coached.
    A friend did note that ADO Den Haag is owned by a Chinese company, and for sure, owners will be friendly for sure, similar to Wu Lei at Espanyol for example, which is all cool, more opportunities for more players. I think a lot of Y9 and CPL players will take positives from this move, thinking, if Estevez can make a big move like this, they can too for sure, which is the long-term goal for most of the CPL players.

    Having talented players on the bench to push the starters is the way to be.  Wouldn't be surprised if signing Segawa was done with an eye to the near future.  Another year like last or better from Abzi and I could see him moving elsewhere.  Especially with the CPL playing during the European off-season, Segawa would step right in should a mid-season transfer occur.

    I really don't think Crepeau is nearly as good as some people on this board and MLS.com seem to think. I watch him week in week out and the amount of shocking mistakes he makes is horrendous. Obviously our defense hasn't helped him to much but so many times he'll spill the ball to the centre of the box or fail to make a save he should. I want him to be our keeper of the future but unless Borjan has a big drop in form over the next two years I can't see him not starting for us if we qualify. He makes a lot of saves and makes some great ones but he still makes way to many mistakes to be our number 1.

    From a poster on Reddit r/CanadianPL who has demonstrated accurate insight in the past.
    CPL exploring a tournament style restart to season in single location
    The league is looking at putting all 8 teams in one place, to mitigate travel cost and exposure to COVID19.  Each club is making a strong pitch to host this event, with Winnipeg the logical front runner because of it’s geographic advantage, and only 33 active cases in the province.  Vancouver Island is another strong candidate because of relatively small case numbers.  This would be a closed door, made for TV event.  
    Format and structure are being explored, with Canada Day the target for kick-off.  Afterwards, the league hopes to play a compressed balanced schedule in empty stadiums with some concerns over our case numbers in Ontario.

    I wonder if when the league plays closed door games if it offers fans a value add not to cancel their tickets. Like reduced rates on 2021 tickets, souvenirs, away experience in 2021, charity donation in your name, they have a beer sponsor, how about beer? etc etc. I'm a Whitecaps season ticket holder and I would consider this in order to help the team out
