    Stouffvillain got a reaction from gator in Forge FC Season Thread 2020   
    That's unfortunate. I've been a fan of his play and thought he was underrated last season (though it is easy to be overlooked when you have the guys around him that Forge had).
    I haven't been keeping up with the Forge news, looks like they are losing Monsalve as well.  Bringing on Tissot and Bobouli would be a big boost.

    Don't think Hamilton will be able to play. Maybe in the later games/playoffs. It would be huge to add him. 
     
    If I had to guess the starting 11
    Ingham
    Doner-arnone-luca-abzi
    Manny-mannella-dichiara
    Telfer-vasconcelos-petrasso
     
    Porter, murufushi, Thompson, Rivera, fugo and all the young kids on the bench is solid. Getting Telfer back was huge. If Hamilton can't join, I hope they can add someone.

    There is no need for Y9 to have a L1O team.  Many of the L1O players live in southern Ontario and have the CPL as their only real option to make the jump.  Y9 being close to home for so many give them the inside track to sign the players from L1O they want.
    There is no L1O season this year so any minutes they get are more than they would've got this season had Y9 not signed them.
    Playing time for them won't be an issue this season.  If the CPL does take the field this season it will be with such a condensed schedule there won't be any choice but to ensure there is a healthy squad rotation.
    Last year Jimmy kept the same XI match in match out unless there was injury, international absence, or someone's poor form deemed a change necessary.  It will be interesting to see how Jimmy sets the lineup and tactics each week keeping a healthy rotation of players.

    People are already complaining on twitter about WCQ being on OneSoccer.  If Canada makes the Octagon and gets close to the World Cup this could be the springboard for Onesoccer to actually get some decent subscriber numbers.  It may even force TSN to awkwardly acknowledge the CPL and Onesoccer's mere existence

    Which goes to show everyone how concerned the MLS clubs are about developing players.  They would prefer to have their young players sit at home rather than train in a professional environment and play minutes in meaningful games.

    CPL did it's part. It's on the 3 MLS teams to do theirs if they truly care about players getting some much needed playing time.

    The league has nothing to gain business-wise doing this. You can be sure that the 3 MLS teams would use this precedent to apply pressure to get their reserve squads in the league cementing the "2nd rated league below MLS"
    Not that everyone isn't aware of CPL's place on the pecking order but right now, they are being "different" & "independent" of MLS which is the right move.
    Never understood how some can praise the business-focus of MLS and turn around and ask CPL to leave their business interests at the door and just do the right thing.
    TFC II place is helping the Sask Series organizing friendlies or having them with L1O, not serve as a trojan horse to help Manning's narrative.
    Nothing stopping TFC from taking more Canadians to the 1st team and give them minutes in the tournament. CPL shouldn't have the burden of helping out when TFC could do it all along. They could loan some players to CPL clubs

    That is an unnecessary shot at Ozzie. 
    When did it become his responsibility to find every mention of CPL or their partners on the internet? While I don't always agree with his thoughts his posts during the pandemic have been neutral.  The vast majority have been posts of news links without any additional commentary without which this forum would go days without any posts at all.

    I agree in theory.  Ugarizza's deal was described as an option multi-year deal, the others were only described as multi year deals.
    If the players can find a place to play in their own country it seems like Y9 would work with them to stay there.  I don't think either party is interested in having the players not take the field for an entire season.

    I think others will be released too. Jaco, Hamilton, Lopez. Jaco could stay on loan. I bet other teams release players too.

    Not all Europe is equal, you're right.  Going to Finland isn't the same as going to Spain.  The whole argument of getting over to Europe is two fold.  There are more eyes on the game there so you have a better chance of continuing to climb the ladder and make a career out of the game.  The second is the competition, iron sharpens iron, you aren't going to grow as a player is you aren't pushing yourself.
    For Zanatta, being in Europe, it is probably easier to try to stay in Europe than to come back to Canada and get a 2nd shot overseas.

    I have been noticing McNab mentioning the Baldassarra's more in all the interviews he's been doing as well.  I don't particularly like it as most of the time when you hear about how much money owners have spent it is because the owners are unwilling to spend more. 
    I think what McNab is trying to deliver the point that they are committed as evident with the millions they have spent to date.  The Baldassarra aren't unwilling to spend, look at the caliber of players they have brought in this season, they have to be one of the top spending clubs, I get more of the sense that McNab is trying to let people know that they are methodical on how they spend. 
    I see parallels to Belan in Saskatchewan in terms of looking before they leap.  Any re-brand or stadium plans will happen once they believe it is best for the club not just because they have the money to do it.

    Re: re-branding
    They are looking at all things but there isn't a decision either way. Response they've received is balanced, people from outside of the market seem to be in favour of it.  Owners have put millions into the club already, asking them for more would have to be confident that it would cut into the market.  Would you invest a million dollars in a crowded marketplace without universally positive appeal? 
    Elements within the brand are strong (i.e. nicknames) but there isn't allot outside of the trillium flower and the stripes. 
    Club was behind where they should've been after the training camp in terms of marketing.
    No names disclosed, it isn't about a name it's about a brand. 
    Surprised from statements from supporters groups as none had spoke to him about their feelings.

    This is a good interview with Ryan Telfer.  His accent makes him sound like a laid back guy but it is clear he is driven and the kind of guy you want to have in your squad.
    Q: Is potentially getting to the World Cup in the back of your mind when you are on the training pitch?
    A: No it is a the front of my mind, it is why I get up everyday.
    Telfer isn't here because he thinks it'll be a free ride because he's been here already, he's back because it's the best place for him to keep climbing the football ladder.  
    The thing he takes away from his time with TFC was how intense training was with Giovinco, Bradley and Altidore and how that intensity translated to everyone on the team.  You hear how demanding the Y9 training sessions are, good to know one of the top players in the league appreciates putting in the work.  As it resonated with him at TFC it will do the same to the newer pros at Y9.

    You know... it’s not tacky just because you sanctimoniously pronounce it to be. Who gets to decide what’s worthwhile? You? Please, let me know when it’s okay to break the rules, you seem to get to decide. I’m not going to get into the politics of the protests/riots here, but even if you think that the protests are the greatest thing since sliced bread, that’s your opinion. I guess the rules only apply when you think they should. Everyone else who wants to disobey them must be a tacky *******, how can they possibly know what’s right like you do?

    To be fair, the virus doesn’t care about how noble or worthwhile one’s social (or mass) gathering may be. The horse is out of the barn. There’s no sense in pretending that we can do much more than take individual responsibility for healthy practices at this point. Weeks on end of protests, as well as riots (in the US at least) have ended lockdown and quarantine as a viable solution imo.
