    2018 Voyageurs Cup

    Wasn't Sportsnet also playing something like "Misplays of the month" and poker or something? the day after the MLB all star game is the slowest day in the year for sports, and they couldn't be bothered to put the games on. This coming Wednesday on SN360 it will be Plays of the Month, World Poker Tour, Misplays of the Month, during the TFC vs Ottawa game. Then during Vancouver vs Montreal it will be Highlights of the Night followed by July 23 Monday Night Raw. On TSN 2 it's going to be World Junior Hockey reruns.

    Good luck Theo! Let's hope his career doesn't derail like his thread.

    2018 Voyageurs Cup

    So what did the sports networks have on INSTEAD of the Canadian Championships on Wednesday night? Before we forget.... TSN all channels but one....The ESPYS...watch the best American sports stars award themselves. At least now there's more sports/awards for women. They've passed the old boys network back in the 1970s that had some sportscaster vote 'Best Female Athlete' as the horse that won the Kentucky Derby. Sportsnet channels....WWE Monday Night Raw...I couldn't believe that one. I know it was the day after the baseball All Star game so there was no baseball being played anywhere. But a two day old wrestling show? It's already been on the small Sportsnet 360 station that shows it 'live' and repeats it over again at midnight. I can't see why the national stations then pick it up and 95% of their viewers would have thought WTF is this? Would their ratings really have been better than Canadian soccer? Next Wednesday for Sportsnet it's back to endless baseball.

    What should we do with the Voyageurs forum?

    Well I'm almost done with this forum. Been around since 2006, I don't post much, but I find (found) it a great resource on Candain footy. Now every topic is back and forth babble...and I'm getting bored.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    Woohoo! Jim Brennan lead Aurora to a top 15 finish (out of 16 teams) in L1O in 2016. York 9 are in good hands.

    I'm not actually part of a supporters group. I need to be reminded, are flares allowed at league games at BMO field?

    Herdman new head coach

    If you didnt read it how do you know it will fail??? You take the time to post 10 times about an article you didnt read. WHen it would have been quicker to read it and post once. Do you see why everyone is ignoring you? Do you really want to be part of the discussion, no one will give any credence to what you say if you continue like this.

    Well never had the chance to really read it until now but I am sure you meant to be on purpose forget it yeah you did but that's neither here nor there is it but even so the game plan thinking about it now it is doomed to fail

    TFC 2018

    Did anyone tell him he'll be playing in USL3.....??? If most of us think CPL will be roughly USL quality, why take a step down to whatever this USL 3 is going to be (playing against the chattahoochee chuggeers and the gang from the local applebees)?? Maybe promises have been made about future MLS shots??

    TG11, that is the exact same article that we were talking about on Tuesday when it came out (link at yahoo sports), You had the link in one of your posts. DID YOU READ IT THEN OR NOW?? Sorry to be a dick but take 2 minutes and read something instead of posting ok??

    https://www.thestar.com/sports/soccer/2018/07/17/john-herdman-outlines-canadas-2026-world-cup-game-plan.html I wonder what do you all think about this?

    The problem is, we all talk about how we know how players best develop but we really have no clue. We look at cases where promising young players go to big clubs and get loaned out and never make the first team, but maybe they just weren't good enough. We look at young players going to PSV/Ajax and developing really well there, but maybe those clubs are particularly adept at picking players that WILL develop. I'd say 95% of how Davies develops depends on his own ability and 5% is on the situation he finds himself in. That being said... I have no clue either.

    I completely agree with everything except the CSA v VWFC thing.. why shouldn’t the CSA have quashed* the Calgary move? How would that be fair to Foothills or incoming CPL teams? “Hey sure Vancouver your failing 2nd team can have one of the largest markets in Canada even though you do next to nothing for Canadians.” They couldn’t even live up to their original obligations.. and they wanted another major favour? A pro team with two of the largest cities in Canada? Come on now.. if they couldn’t make it in BC the CSA was 1000% right to block a move to a major market. Good riddance - the alternative is infinitely better.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    Guys it's not Jim Brennan, let York 9 do it's thing - we will win the league in 2019!

    Alphonso Davies

    Should starting for a team/getting max minutes be the #1 priority for Davies? As many have pointed out he still has some holes in his game that he has to develop. Will this be best accomplished playing under pressure with an EPL team or would he be better off developing those aspects of his game with a reserve team for 1 yr or so before making his debut for the first team...like Larin for example? Being exposed to top level coaching and training with the first team may help the transition?
  21. Guidelines for this thread In this thread post match updates on all Canadians abroad for July 20-26, 2018. If you find updates posted in some other thread then post them here as well, but be sure to credit the original poster. If there is news that is particularly significant (eg. someone scores a big goal, someone gets injured, etc.) then feel free to begin a new thread on that topic in order to draw greater attention or start a discussion, but also post that news here. Some comments on news posted in this thread are okay, but let's not let this thread go off into a long discussion. If the news already appears in another thread (as per the previous bullet) then post your comments in that other thread, otherwise if you want to say something significant or if it is likely to generate replies then begin a new thread.

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    If Brennan turns out to be the coach, it seems like York 9 is just spiraling down further

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    he was an assistant gm and as @zeelaw said it doesn't look good for a league with a fairly confused image already

    Part owner, part manager. Not the best look IMO.

    Yeah, as I said before, I agree with you, although you are wrong about VWFC2, it's been clearly reported several times that the CSA squashed their Calgary move. From the Whitecaps point of view it makes way more sense to decrease spending on youth development and let the CPL owners spend the money. The 'caps can just take any good prospects for free once they are out of contract like they do from other lower leagues and additionally use CPL as a source for loans instead of running a USL3 team or a USL affiliate. It's been clear for a long time that Canadian MLS club fans overwhelming care about results and style of play over any sort of domestic content, it was a losing strategy from the start for Vancouver to invest so much in youth development rather than international scouting (like Portland) or a strong analytics team and DPs (like Toronto). The CPL gives them a nice excuse to focus on winning trophies and pleasing fans rather than signing every B-level prospect from the academy to a pro deal.

    If they are going to pay the guy a full-time salary, as appears to be the case, it might as well be for something he is actually trained for in professional terms.

    Why kid? Why not wait and use CPL as leverage to get an MLS deal?
