  1. I don't know why we are expecting this to be a walk-over - Haiti are a decent and very athletic team and we are playing in an effing cauldron on poor turf and even poorer reffing. Let's keep this 1-0 and go back to the continent with the advantage ...
  2. Wouldn't it be nice if Ottawa only agreed to pay a portion of it and make Atletico Madrid pay the rest ... get a player like that for 40,000 Euros
  3. Not to rip on this signing, I'm sure he's good .... but we have enough midfielders! We need some defenders. No?
  4. To play the devil's advocate, isn't it more effective to have your main marquee signings in positions that can win you games? I'm an Everton fan, and it reminds me when our best players were our two wingbacks (Baines and Coleman) - capable of some great play but never enough to get us to the top of the table. At this point I'd be more concerned who is going to score Valour's goals and not jumping through hoops about picking up two wingbacks who, at the top of their game, were likely better than anyone else in this league ..
  5. Would those three teams be the three reserve teams for MLS or three other Canadian soccer clubs - like the Thunder Bay Chill etc.? Maybe I am being picky on semantics but it would make sense if it was the former since he said "the three Canadian clubs" - implying its likely the ones already in MLS.
  6. Hey sorry for starting a redundant thread, couldn't find this one although admittingly I didn't look hard for it. I'll be in Kansas City from the end of July to the end of September on a work placement but am trying to head early given that's where we are playing! Would love to meet up with any stateside Canada supporters if possible.
  7. I agree that Forge FC do look good considering they replaced their biggest loss with an equally or if not better player in Jakovic and added Borges, who, despite his apparent failure in the Belgian league (not sure what happened here although I understand a coaching change did not help), will probably be one of the top leagues. However, my money this year is on Cavalry FC
  8. Hey guys, can we cut the C#*! and get back to talking about soccer? This is the type of shenanigans that keeps people away from these message boards ...
  9. That. would. be. incredible. Also worth building up some interest in a city that could realistically house a future CPL team as opposed to PEI - no offence.
  10. Ideally but didn’t Manitoba just get hit hard?
  11. Any thoughts on the new player, Miguel Acosta? Can't find much on him on the internet but he does appear to have a decent background with respect to what's required to be competitive at the CPL level. TBH I'm just glad we found ourselves another fullback! Could use one more defender and a third-string GK to round out the squad ... https://canpl.ca/article/atletico-ottawa-signs-spanish-fullback-miguel-acosta
  12. So, if five teams end up with 11 points, which is possible, do you think they'd go with goal differential or head-to-head record for each of those teams against each other - meaning taking four games into consideration and whoever has the worst record against the other top teams drops out ...
  13. Has anyone ever had their account "deleted" by One Soccer? I tried to logon today with my usual credentials and was told they were incorrect. When I tried to reset my password, I was told my email address does not have a corresponding account. Furthermore, when I tried to write a ticket, there was no confirmation of submission when I pressed submit. Can anyone help? I'm gutted I couldn't watch the Lille game ...
  14. I feel like I've seen that play before and a PK has never been given. Can someone enlighten me?
  15. GGGOOOAAALLL for Ottletico! Neufville with the run down the left side and cut back to Kourouma who slots it in. I almost thought he was going to flub it!
  16. I re-watched the video of the handball on One Soccer's twitter page like 50 times and it is 100% a handball. If you look at the final spin and direction of the ball, it has a backspin and has a downward trajectory - the pure physics of which means it must have hit a surface much more parallel to the ground, like an outstretched arm, rather than a perpendicular surface like the side of his body. Had it not have hit his arm, the ball would have bounced back away from Forge goal rather than bounce towards the ground. Great call Mr. Referee!
  17. For anyone that watched the game, how was the quality of play compared to last year? I missed the game unfortunately ...
  18. 6 signings! IMO Mckendry is the biggest addition but the others will make things interesting.
  19. True, but the 3,2,1 countdown was a little more ambiguous in its meaning - many of us may had just chosen to believe what wishful thinking told us which was 3 different players. Having 6 different "arrival flights" is less ambiguous IMO and points to six different players, all from the respective cities shown on the board.
  20. Does the new Instagram post insinuate that we have 6 more players coming in? That would make 21 - giving us a healthy number of players to start with
