    I thought piette was one of the few good players out there. Seemed to win every tackle.

    I’m with you. I thought he was the only mid fielder that actually did his job that game. He shut down a lot of plays and made some huge tackles. We know he isn’t a dynamic passer... that isn’t his job tho. Kaye,Oso,Arfield were horrible.

    A team's best players usually want more money. If they are the best players on the last place team, they could very well be bench players on a top team. No use paying starting money to bench players if they want to improve

    That is a good point.

    Honestly he’s not wrong, Belgium got good fast.


    With a half Canadian league and more teams coming, it means more places and minutes for CDN players. 


    Another team means 1k minutes for a U21 player, the whole limit is similar to the German setup and look at fast and well that worked. 

    Theres actually a lot of good prospects with the MLS teams that we know about but they just aren’t playing, if they had a chance at regular minutes, where would we be ?

    theres talent that we haven’t yet found and when they get minutes they’ll grow. We just have to give chances so yes this could happen fast.

    I don’t think we are in the position to compare ourselves to Germany and Belgium, two of the best footballing countries in the world. Belgium got good fast because they completely re structured the way they developed talent across the country at all age groups. Of course we are going to naturally grow and create better players, but  a player like Tomori would be a star cb in then MLS. So us having cbs in the MLS that hardly get minutes and tomorrow coming in and being a star the gap is still wide.

    Would be interesting to know whether the league as a whole is in the red or black in year one. Surely Valour, Forge, and HFX are in the black. If not then I would be very concerned about long term viability.

    The other 4 definitely look iffy based on attendance numbers thus far, although in a new venture one would hope they have planned for that. However, do the various sponsorship deals take them into the black? Would be nice to know.

    With WFC being community owned, we might get some transparency on those numbers, for Valour at least.


    I would say Cavs are up there with any team for revenue. Average around 3500 attendance, but the ticket prices are much higher then most the league. 3500 tickets at spruce is probably good for 5K+ elsewhere. Then you factor in the major pay days from the whitecaps and Impact games. Also they own their venue so no rent, all beer/food sales is straight in their pockets.
