    Herdman new head coach

    Holy shit. It's hard not to get on board with this guy when you listen to the interview he gave with Nigel Reed in the second half of the Fury TFC game. When he started talking about having pride in the shirt and that players that don't will be left off the team sheet, I almost got teary eyed. God damn that was nice to hear.

    Tabla is a Canada youth international and former Canadian U17 and U20 player of the year. It was him who put the brakes on his Canada international career not the CSA.

    I saw a bit of the LAFC game on Sunday. Haven't seen the last 5 or 6 games they have played, but saw a lot of their games early in the season. Kaye looks sharper and more confident now than he did when I was tuning into LAFC earlier in the season. I shouldn't be surprised, but I kind of am to be honest. Kaye looks like a true MLS regular the same way Piette does or Osorio does. Just seemingly so comfortable out there. Other guys like Teibert, Chapman, Edwards, Petrasso, they look like players right now who can start if needed, but the consistancy is just not there with them and that is why they are in and out of their teams. Kaye, Piette and now Osorio on the otherhand do show that consistancy. They are bonafide MLS starters for sure.

    A minimum number on the field at all times does not do anything unusual. I think we should have a minimum 6 on the field at all times, and let the coach figure it out. Otherwise we are implying they are not intelligent enough to adapt to a simple and widely used rule. The criteria has been used, in similar ways, in various leagues and competitions over the years. Many leagues restrict foreigners, or have, including Russia, China, Spain. Others say early round Cup matches should include minimums from the academy of the team, or nationals, or restrict foreigners in lower divisions, meant to be development leagues. Such restrictions are inconvenient, but put in place to encourage a proper balance between nationals and foreigners. MLS blatantly discriminates Canadians by not offering our players full reciprocity for playing on American teams, they are not given domestic status. And we've pretty well passively accepted such a slight, with Americans given full status in Canada. The CPL is a direct response to the disrespect MLS shows Canadian professional footballers. The USL and the PDL do not do this, meaning the MLS is baseless in doing so. I would only say that if, for example, a team were to have two Canadian keepers and one was injured, you would have a provision in place in case you needed to make a keeper change. And you need a provision for when you have a lot of injuries on a roster and that affects mostly Canadians, which could happen. That is about it.

    Watched this last night. When he speaks he does so from the heart. There is no prepared narrative.. no stay on message type answers, just refreshing humility and honesty. He is truly a special person....unlike the typical modern day athlete. Such a likeable guy...you can't help but want to see him succeed and I really hope he does.

    Details of the World Cup Final viewing party held Sunday morning in Vaughan by the York 9 club. I got an interview with Ben Zayandehroudi the VP of Ticket Sales and Fan Services. It answers a lot of questions of the stadium they're use for the first two years, ticket prices,the number of Canadian players and building rivalries. http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports18/CPLF0715.htm

    I don't like this AT ALL. Mostly because we'd forfeit the game to USVI due to having 12 players on the field!

    Fikayo Tomori

    JH said "right place, right time" when describing their approach to dual nationals. There's no sense for them to pour a lot of effort right now into two guys that are committed to European U21 programs with a Euro U21 ongoing and a Euro competition on the horizon. They have spoken with them to let them know that the door is open if they don't make the squads for England and Portugal. Wise approach, IMO. Keep tabs on everyone out there and understand their current situation -- be ready to step in at the key moment. We shouldn't expect developments until and if Tomori/Eustaquio fail to make the cut.

    I'd like to see Highlanders and TSS Rovers lead the way on forming the BC equivalent of the L1O, but this probably isn't the forum for that.

    I don't post often but I check this site daily, specifically the CanMNT and CanPL forums. I can say that, personally, the V's forum is the primary avenue that got me into Canadian footy and continues to be my primary source for daily updates and excellent discussion. I became interested with the TFC/MLS hype in 2007 and discovered the V's & CanMNT through there. It was/is the forum itself - specifically, getting ongoing info and discussion from relatively intelligent posters - that keeps me going with Canadian footy. I find the ongoing news and conversation in the threads a great way to keep up with the CanMNT and it's players - possibly the best there is in Canada. There are issues. When I joined, it did feel as if a new member needed 'molding' into posting etiquette specifically for the forum. For example, knowledge about Towrads and Sponsons was a big deal. It's fine that there's a dedicated community of hardcores, but, especially in a world where Reddit is emerging and hitting online forums, it's a good idea to make it simple for new members to come in. Perhaps just create a 'V's forum posting etiquette' guideline for new members. The CanPL threads got a bit dicey at times. I think this was mostly a result of a few hardcores excited for the league and little to no information coming out for a long time. As a result, there was circular discussion without much substance while people were edgy waiting for something to happen. Now, each team has its own thread and things are changing a bit. What's essential to get new posters is to make coming in simpler than Reddit and more worthwhile than other social media. We have a forum that easily out classes anything on Reddit, filled with informed users and daily content/discussion. Posters like tg11 can be a good thing with help into getting started. Just a welcome 'etiquette list' and maybe a daily posting limit for everyone would help steer contructive content. There's obviously some fluff that gets posted, but that's simple enough to scroll through. Generally, I find this forum a great source of info on Canadian football that is supported by how long it's been in existence and ties to the national team supporters group. With bit of loose moderation, I can see it being an incredible staple to the Voyageurs.

    If the CFL can manage within a Canadian quota, in a sport where positions and substitution patterns are far more specific and complicated, the CPL should be able to do so as well.

    Herdman new head coach

    Not very classy.....is this not something that could have been dealt with man to man and not in the press. Isnt Herdman just inviting people to question and speculate needlessly about the CMNT players?? Its bad enough now whenever certain players skip a camp or miss a game, now we have the coach make this public. Its good to get those knds of guys out, but taking it to the press is ugly. I guess he knows best after the 7 months he has had with the program.

    Mathieu Choinière is probably the Impact's best homegrown signing since Tabla. I think we'll see him get playing time this season.

    That is the kind of thing you announce when it's successful, not when you take him out for dinner on the Ramblas.... You don't announce background moves to the public. I assure you they work on these things.

    "A versatile addition to the formation, Gagnon-Laparé will bring depth and experience to the left wing for Fury FC. A defensive-midfielder by trade, Gagnon-Laparé has also the speed and agility to provide attacking support as a left-back." 🤔

    I don't get all the bitching about Hamilton's logo. It's probably the best one yet. Edit: Poking fun at the logo guys...not the club.

    One other thing for player pool that’s just as important. The next man up. On paper if every single player for us has been available I think we had the 3rd best Concacaf team in 2014 and 2018. The problem is we haven’t had the depth behind our starters that any missing player was catastrophic for us. For example in 2014 had Josh Simpson and DeRosario not been hurt and Occean not gotten a red card we would have qualified. We probably could have sustained 1 of those but 2 and our chances were on life support and all 3 we got completely rolled. I think at any time the 100+ or so Canadian CPL players will give us maybe 5-8 players in a game for the CMNT. Literally the top 5% of the CPL rosters will make the national team. But if there is an injury the drop off won’t be as severe because there will be another 10-15 players playing and in form right behind them ready and waiting for the call. We haven’t had those mid level player depth before which is why there’s always been several Unattached FC players on our roster. That ends starting next year and our results will show it. There’s never been a time where we have been able to call on that level of depth since the old NASL died. Thats going to be the next thing for us that will move us up the ranks to a top 50 team consistently and propel us to the 3-5th best CONCACAF team permanently.
