    Bummer Hopefully he gets back on track in France.

    He definitely is a long shot right now but it’s possible he could be at England level in a couple years. I doubt he commits unless he’s 100% sure England’s not giving him a call. Also like the Scottish spelling of maguire.

    I am less worried there. We have a lot of potential in those positions with some good young prospects coming up. CB is certainly the bleakest.

    Emile Legault

    CELTIC CAME CLOSE TO SIGNING CANADIAN DEFENDER EMILE LEGAULT https://readceltic.com/2018/09/24/celtic-came-close-to-signing-canadian-defender-emile-legault/ However, it has now been revealed that the player needed to apply for a work permit in order to secure a move to Parkhead and it was not granted. The central defender was highly rated in France and previously played for Auxerre, representing the club at youth level. The report claims that Legault will return to France to continue his development, but he could be a name to watch out for in the future.

    CPL Stadium Thread

    I thought that this stadium was to be a legacy of the pan am games...a track and field legacy. I would be really surprised if they were allowed to remove the track in any kind of permanent way.

    Voyageurs doing awesome stuff - Soju in China

    Yes. They have Panamanian announcers and have secured exclusive rights to broadcast all Canadian MNT matches until 2024.

    CPL Season Schedule

    I'm calling it now: The CSA will impose a CPL quota on the Canadian Championship. 6 Canadians at all time on the pitch. Ladies and gentlemen, we got ourselves a tournament. You want the V Cup? Win with some goddamn Canadians. Peace, I'm out...

    Vancouver Whitecaps 2018

    The thing that I kept waiting to happen under Robbo's tenure was on field evidence that the Caps were developing a cohesive method of play, that they were getting better and better at playing an intelligent and effective brand of football. But it never happened. The last three years have been particularly telling. I'd almost hold my breath thinking that a string of half-decent games--in terms of cohesive, deliberate play--meant that this team WAS on track, but the next three games would be very poor or disorganized etc. While I will credit Robbo for creating and nurturing a culture of inclusion and hard work within the squad, it became far too evident that he didn't know how to build a culture on the field. This team did not really have an identity. I wish Robbo well. I think he is a good human being. He needs to develop as a coach, but after this firing I am not sure where he'll land next. We've got coaches like Tata in MLS!! Great piece on MLS.com about why the Caps made the move now, with some speculation about Dos Santos as a great choice to take over, especially as the Caps are about to spend some Fonzie Bucks very soon. I believe I heard that at least one other MLS club has its eyes on Dos Santos--immediately--and I would imagine that this may have forced the Caps' to move a bit earlier than we all expected, presuming of course that they are keen on Dos Santos. I will give the Caps FN props for making the move now, especially in light of the fact that the organization has a very real opportunity to take this organization up a couple of notches (because of the Davies deal). This is somewhat akin to the move the CSA made with Herdman, in so much as both organizations recognized the golden opportunities ahead of them and decided they need the right managers to fully seize those opportunities. Bring Dos Santos on! Bring on the next evolution of the Caps!

    We will have to play Mexico and the US eventually. I think the point is that Hoilett is a complete 2 way player and we will need that.

    The other question is how many Canadians on the field for Voyageurs Cup. What is MLS doing now for V-Cup.........3 Canadians ? Fu#king rubbish ! That number better increase significantly next year.

    Cardiff give up so much possession. He's had to do a ton of defending this season.
  17. Jahinho Guerro

    Fikayo Tomori

    No it doesn't. It's still considered a youth competition. He'll need to either win promotion to the PL or get transfered to it and be a starter. Other than that.... Im not worried that he won't play for Canada again , it's just when, which I dont think will come before Euro 2020.

    CPL General

    Just posting to debunk the claims that Montreal Impact has Montreal Metro locked down. According to this... they are doing terrible on TV. Bringing Quebec City and Laval could end up doing better if marketed the right way.

    Best XI

    With his age and injuries I think Atiba isn’t in our best XI anymore and Piette has probably passed him at this point. Also as good as a prostpect Tabla is, right now Osorio is our best attacking midfielder. He has to take the spot and Osorio has it and is in his prime. At the moment I think our best formation is 3-5-2 and our best XI is as follows: Cavalini Larin Osorio Davies Hoilett Piette Arfield James Vitoria Henry Borjan I put Vitoria in the middle of James and Henry because as a central guy with his in box skills I think he’s the best there right now.

    CPL Season Schedule

    Start all CPL and MLSclubs in the same round, and the winner of pslq or L1O if you need to even it out, and seed by winning percentage. That the leagues are treated equal, and teams are rewarded for how they're doing in their respective leagues. Oh, and Ottawa I guess.

    Switch Henry and Jakovic, and Tabla for Osario... that would be my best 11. Either way though, I'm getting really excited about this team!

    Fikayo Tomori

    Despite the commitment of Davies and Talba, I think it is imperative for the CMNT to secure Tomori to continue to grow. Even if they have all this exciting young talent the teams potential is going no where with out Two class CB who can defend and get the ball into the attacking players. I personally think that we have a good chance to secure Tomori. If his goal is to play in a world cup, the likely hood of securing a spot with England during Southgate's lead is highly unlikely. Stones, MacGuire, Gomez, walker, with all likely be around for another two tournaments. Plus you have guys like Micheal Keane, Tartowski in the wings as well. Does a competitive u21 match tie him?
  23. Jahinho Guerro

    Ballou Tabla

    Ferreira true. I don't think Tomori has much of a chance with England, unless he goes to the premier league next season and starts. He has wayyyy to many young CBs to pass who are currently getting premier league minutes. In 2022, when he's 24 he'll be battling against Joe Gomez who will be 25, John Stones 28, Harry Maguire 29, Michael Keane 28,... And those are the guys who have caps. Likewise with Stephen, he'll need a move somewhere with guys like Renato Sanchez, Ruben Neves, Andre Gomes etc. I think we'll see Stephen first though. As for Akinola, he'll have to make a decision that's best for him. Right now Canada ain't a guarantee as it was 3 months ago.

    General Discussion on CMNT

    Just check out this depth from M-CF! (Some players listed twice as they are versatile) CF: Cavallini, Larin, David, Ricketts, AJH, Akindele, Hamilton W: Hoilett, Davies, Tabla, Millar, Edwards, Akindele, Fisk, Telfer AM: Osorio, Arfield, Tabla, Chapman M: Arfield, Piette, MAK, Tiebert, Osorio, Wotherspoon, Fraiser I am sure that I missed some guys like Hutch for example. It is crazy how we have guys playing in decent leagues like Wotherspoon and he isn’t a shoo-in starter, not to mention not even getting subbed in against USVI.

    This.... Ive been watching every Cardiff game, because of Hoilett.... And my God does he doing a lot of tracking back. I've barely seen him get on the attack, so it's definitely something he could do.
