Froese scored again today. 5 goals in the last 5 games for him. Good to see him having success after a tough 2016.

 

Tough 2016? This is a pretty big step down from  MLS and CCL, is it not? 

Glad to see him doing well though. I've always liked his play. Transfermarkt seems to have him playing as a CF recently.

Chencinski started for Shamrock Rovers in a 4-2 loss to Bray. Rovers went up 1-0 9 minutes in but had a collapse at the end of the first half and gave up three goals in 8 minutes. Can't imagine their manager will last much longer at this rate.

Definitely, it is a step down from MLS. But given that his development had hit a wall in Vancouver in 2016, I'm glad to see he's having success in Germany.

Good to see but I want to see him at least make the bench of the first team before the season is done.

If you consider Cristante Canadian, he was just subbed on for Atalanta's star player Kessie in the 22nd minute. He must have went down injured.

Tabla and Jackson-Hamel have entered the game in the second half. Jackson-Hamel has scored his second goal in as many games as well. Making a solid case that he's worth more minutes in MLS.

Leutwiler's Shrewsbury win, and if I am not mistaken, with that they are safe from relegation, or maybe it depends on Port Vale not getting a win vs. Walsall tomorrow, not sure. In any case, they have a match left, and are 6 points ahead of the last relegation spot, with a game in hand.

Just saying as I think it is really important for him to be in L1 and not L2 next year.

ENGLAND

Junior Hoilett stayed on the bench for Cardiff in a 0-0 draw with Wigan.

Tomori stayed on the bench for Brighton yesterday in a 2-0 loss to Norwich.

They're aren't technically safe, but it's very improbable they'd be relegated. Shrews would need to lose their last game and Vale would need to win both of theirs AND achieve a GD swing of at least 12, e.g. Shrews lose their game by 4, and then Vale wins both their games by 4; in that case, Shrews would get relegated.

Simeon Jackson stayed on the bench for Walsall in a 1-0 loss to Coventry.

Kris Twardek started and played 65 minutes for Braintree in a 2-0 loss to Barrow.

Gavin McCallum started for Eastbourne in a 2-0 loss to Weston-super-Mare.

POLAND

Milan Borjan started for Korona in a 1-0 loss to Nieciecza in the last game before the split. Tied on points, they JUST manage to make the Championship group thanks to a combination of other results and having more wins in total to win the tiebreak.

SCOTLAND

Luca Gasparotto played 90 minutes for Falkirk in a 2-1 win over Dumferline Athletic. Aird stayed on the bench. Falkirk are sitting 2nd and are guaranteed a promotion playoff spot, but it is now mathematically impossible for them to knock Hibs off the automatic promotion spot.

Calum Ferguson started and played 75 minutes for Albion Rovers in a 1-0 loss to East Fife.

Dario Zanatta started and played 90 minutes for Queen's Park in a 4-0 loss to Livingston. They are still in a four-way tie for 3rd place (3rd/4th qualify for promotion playoff) with two games remaining.

Ricky Gomes started for Arbroath in a 2-1 win over Cowdenbeath. Arbroath have secured a promotion playoff spot but still have a very good shot at first place, trailing by only 1 point with 2 matches remaining.

Interesting that soccerway has Opare listed has Canadian. In that case, 2 Canadians started on the backline for DC United

Tissot is starting for DC United.

Small sample size but reviews seem to have been fairly positive:

[–]New England Revolutionnotstarboard 1 point 2 hours ago 

I've been impressed by Tissot tonight

[–]DC UnitedDC-United1 2 points 2 hours ago 

Ya he has been very good defensively, wish he could bring something on the offensive end though.

Opare is not and will never be eligible for Canada.

Is it the he wasnt eligible (5year residence) before he was 18 thing?  I'm fuzzy on Opare, there was a fair bit of talk about it from him a few years ago.

5 year residence after the age of 18. It's clear cut, there is no going around it, he is not and will never be eligible.

Opare has Canadian citizenship and his family live in Canada but he's not eligible for the CanMNT because of years in Canada.  It's a strange quirk but the book is closed on him it seems.

    • The question remains: Why on Earth do we deserve to play perennial European World Cup teams when we haven't even been to the Hex in 20 years? If the Nations League groups are 6 per level and parsed by FIFA rankings, that puts us in a group with Honduras, Jamaica, T&T, Guatemala and El Salvador. That's really good competition for us, gives us the experience we need in Central America, and puts us in a position to get promoted into a group where the majority of games are against Mexico, the US or Costa Rica.  I'm not sure there is a country that benefits more from the Nations League than Canada.
    • I think you summarized it well.  We saw him play a phenomenal game earlier in the season against Seattle.  But then you have some games where he was not nearly as involved as he could or should be.  I think he played the first leg of that game versus Ottawa and that would have been a chance for cnd players like Chapman to shine but that didnt happen.   Last night, big props for the goal, but there was a play later in the second half where he seems to get intimidated by Giovinco screaming for the ball when he (Chapman) was in a good position to create something useful.  Hence he forced an unnecessary pass to Giovinco who was in no position to make anything usefull of the play.  Maybe we can blame Giovinco for that. Or we can blame the usual "locker room pecking order or culture" that exists Soccer. By that, i mean that Giovinco makes 7 Mill, starts every game, is a league MVP, has several international caps for Italy, played for Juventus etc .  Whereas chapman is young player looking to build a reputation.   So what would we do if we were In Chapman's shoes on that play?    If we had guts, we ignore The 7mill dollar man and do whats right on that play and hold on to the ball a little longer.   But If want to keep our spots on the team, we listen to what giovinco wants and says if he is screaming at you. 
    • I'm just repeating what I've heard. SKC likes to play with a high-line which is suited for CBs with recovery speed. Besler, Opara and Palmer-Brown are all rapid for CBs. Didic is going to have a hard time breaking into their system. He's going to spend the rest of the year at SPR unless Palmer-Brown is sold in this window and there is no end in sight for Besler and Opara.
    • Tomer Chencinski started and kept a clean sheet for Shamrock Rovers in an impressive 1-0 away win over defending champions Dundalk.
    • Are better then almost every team in concacaf.
