  1. I believe of those names, only Wright and Coupland will be eligible as I thought I had remembered reading that the U20 was going to act as the U23 as well, but I must admit I am not entirely sure
  2. I'd say based on performances of players that have played in both leagues, USLC is above CPL, but not by much. I do think that CPL will equal if not surpass USLC in the next couple of years though. I would imagine that the uncertainty going into the past two covid seasons, and being unable to get some internationals in has stifled CPL's quality a little bit
  3. I was curious as to how Zator's loan club, Vasalund IF was doing in their season after Zator left. Zator was there for the first 8 games of their season in which their record was 3-1-4 (1.25 PPG). In games that Zator featured, they were 2-0-3 (1.20 PPG). In games that Zator played all 90 minutes, they were 2-0-0 (3.00 PPG). Currently, they are now 6-3-14 (0.91 PPG) [or 0.73 PPG since Zator left) and are last in the table. Makes me wonder if they or another team in the league tries to get Zator again if they manage to stave off relegation
  4. I was curious myself, so I checked out transfermarkt to see the most common landing spots for players leaving the league. I would say that it is much too early to base anything off of this list, especially with the two pandemic seasons. There are a few leagues that players bounced back to, so it is hard to say if teams in the league are actually watching CPL. I also did it pretty quick so I might have missed some transfers, but this is what I found: Regionalliga (Germany) - Brown, Kowal, Buescher USL Championship (USA) - Sissoko, Murrell, Thomas USL League One (USA) - M.Hamilton, Hundal Primera Divison (Costa Rica) - Cabrera, Aleman Segunda Divison B (Spain) - Galan, Martinez Ettan Södra (Sweden) - Zetterberg, Adjei Ykkönen (Finland) - Moses, Sukunda 1. Divison (Denmark) - Ongaro, Starostzik Superettan (Sweden) - Zator, Mavila *I only included leagues with 2+ player transfers (or loans) out of CPL
  5. Yeah. I am all for getting more CPL callups, but if anyone is getting called up it is an uninjured Bustos or a fullback. I don't see any Canadian forward dominating enough in CPL to warrant a callup
  6. Is he? Didn't he have to give up his Canadian citizenship for Dutch citizenship? I could be wrong but I thought I remember something like that happening. If that is the case, how does that affect his son having citizenship?
  7. Do we know at what point CONCACAF would give Canada a third or even fourth spot?
  8. Because he is on loan in Montreal already from Bologna
  9. Agree. Its also not hard to make certain criteria for a coach to say whether or not they are considered Canadian for the award. Born in Canada? Yes, they are Canadian. Played for Canada? Yes, they are Canadian? IIRC players need to reside in a country for 5+years to be eligible. That seems a bit short in terms of coaching career, but also since we likely wouldn't know their immigration status. Most guys in CPL that we would consider naturalized Canadians would meet this threshold. Hart (~40 years) - In Halifax since 1981 Rob Gale (~20 years) - In Winnipeg since 2001Wheeldon Jr (~19 years) - In Calgary since 2002Koch (~12 years) - In Vancouver since 2008. This one is a bit broken up though since he was in the States for a bit but I think he was technically residing in Vancouver I would find it hard to believe that most if not all of these guys have Canadian citizenship by now, or if not, at least PR status
  10. 1. Forge FC 2. Cavalry FC 3. FC Edmonton 4. Pacific FC 5. HFX Wanderers 6. York United 7. Atletico Ottawa 8. Valour FC
  11. Gale often tends to play players in sub optimal positions so it will indeed be interesting
  12. I find it very difficult to not root for Forge, even being in Ottawa. This season can't come soon enough
  13. Its hard to say if its harsh or not. There were few opportunities in the past. A lot of players seemed to hang up their boots shortly after finishing with the academy. Hopefully CPL allows them to hold on a little longer and we see some more late bloomers like Kaye and Pasher. Yeah I was excited about Lao as well. Had hoped to see him in CPL. I don't know his circumstances now, but it seems unlikely unfortunately. Maheu was another older one that I had been excited about. CPL will be great for keeping these guys around. Especially once we get through this pandemic and there is more normalcy to the seasons
