    Agreed. I may not appreciate what tg11 has to offer, but I do not recall him being offensive to anyone. I have found it more shameful how some stalwarts on this forum have been demeaning to tg11. As many have pointed out, you can always use the ignore function.

    Hope so - but as far as I know, they have not confirmed their move to CPL.

    This sounds good. Can you point to any public comments to support this?

    Liam Millar

    These two articles makes it seem like a permanent move and not a loan. https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/striker-liam-millars-expected-move-14898231 and https://www.sunderlandecho.com/sport/football/sunderland-afc/sunderland-afc-round-up-cats-target-liverpool-forward-for-youth-set-up-as-ex-coach-hails-youngsters-1-9246938. The articles position Millar's move as a rebuilding of the Sunderland academy and a view to the future. Also a reference to LFC's depth in their academy as a block for Millar. Doesn't sound like this would be a loan move. I am with others being unconvinced that a transfer, not a loan, is best for Millar. Many youngsters flounder out of top club academies, but Millar was showing much promise last year. There would be a great upshot, and risk, to staying with LFC. Maybe Sunderland is on the verge of rebounding, but they have been a mess for so long. Also, teams's on their way up the pyramid usually bring in new faces at each level to bring in more experience from that level - thereby pushing down current player's regardless of that players past performance for club. All to say, a move to a League One club now will be the harder road to follow if his goal is to play in the PL.
  5. I second this. I have trouble thinking of a guy who played against Liverpool in the Champions League a few years back, Arsenal in Europa last year, and should be part of the UCL qualifiers as chomping at the bit to join relegated Premier league teams or other promotion wannabes in the Championship. As a minimum, he would have to be coming in as the starter to a team that he believes will get promoted. Swansea, having sold Fabianki might fit that description, but it is really a crap shoot. A netminder with his experience coming off the year he had should come in as back-up for any PL teams - at the very least.
  6. Have you ever heard of a team from Lille?

    Manjrekar James

    Ligue 1, Bundesliga, La Liga - come on. He needs to raise his game and get into the CPL! Seriously though - I don't think that whether FC Midtjylland is a good landing spot for him or not is in question. It is obviously a step up (van der Vaart spent the last two years there riding the pine). The issue is his immediate loan, and what that means long term. FC Midtjylland had brought him in on 4 year k - so they have him in their plans; but then immediately loan him down - thus he is not in their immediate plans. This leaves the door open for someone else to sparkly/transfer in and take a future place from him. In the current situation, ideally his loan agmt has a recall clause, James hits the ground running and FC Midtjylland has a need a need for him earlier.

    Herdman new head coach

    Too early to chant "8 more years"?

    With a new manager, and only four players currently signed to the team, this may be a blessing for Gasporotto. Always difficult when a new manager comes in and makes wholesale changes to the squad. It sucks for him in the short term, but I suspect that he will find something else in the Scottish Championship League. http://www.greenocktelegraph.co.uk/sport/16272425.Morton_manager_continues_talks_with_players/

    Hey! we got a draw in our home opener last weekend. There is nowhere to go but up!

    You would be right. They were 2d division last few years, but were relegated last year. Team should have a good infrastructure for that level.

    NEW Mother of all Canucks Abroad (and domestic)

    There are plenty of young people who finish their BA, have debt and decide to go abroad to do internships in developing countries for next to no pay. I would think of it as the same for footballers. You need a sense of adventure, willingness to take a risk and an understanding that you are earning a meager living for the next year or more. The payoff is that it gets you experience, and it might lead to something more sustainable. If not - you took a chance, you are set back financially from if you stayed home, and you go back to living with your parents looking for that desk job that allows you to comb through Voyageurs forums on Monday mornings.

    La'vere Corbin-Ong

    I don't get this move. I feel like I need to know more about his motivation. Six-months ago he is getting good minutes for one of the larger teams in Ereste divisie. Then he signs with a Malaysian team and transfers out of the Netherlands. On top of that a year ago he gets his first cap for Canada, and now he is suiting up for Malaysia. All seems like a rather swift trajectory shift. It would make more sense to me if he gave up on soccer, pursued something totally different. Instead he sticks with soccer, but just as he is pushing up the soccer hierarchy both in Europe and for his national team, he does a 90 degree turn.

    Cyle Larin

    I would agree that it looks like a mostly A lineup. The fact that they Hutch on the bench suggests to me that they wanted to be quick on the counter attack. Also, Larin has been on the bench for the last two league games. I would say that is improvement as he being placed in a position where he at least could get on the pitch. This is Besiktas' first time in the knock-outs - even though they are on their way out it would be highly unlikely that they would blood let a newbie in front a home crowd.

    Not sure about that. Curacao has called up a few Netherlanders who could have been useful to Oranje. Martina and Room would slide in nicely to the Dutch squad now they have hit a turbulent period. All I am saying is that even teams ranked 20(ish) in the world can still miss the diamonds in the roughs/late bloomers.
