    2019 CPL All-Star game.

    As I proposed, an annual season-ending All-Star game in Victoria, in conjunction with the CPL's AGM and player banquet awards evening at the Empress Hotel, seems like a great way to cap-off the season.

    I've got 4 feet of snow in my yard (manitoba), not sure if it'll be gone even by May 26.

    Upon further inspection: Just checked and he only has one appearance for Fenerbahce as a sub in a cup match. 10 times on the bench in the league. 6 appearances for their u21 side. This move has to be a massive disappointment for him and he probably is desperate for football. He’s not going to get called for Netherlands youth teams at this rate and playing for us or Turkey requires a one time switch. Playing for Turkey is no guarantee either and he’s probably not too enthused by his time there. This may be like the anti-Eustaquio situation where the timing is working perfectly but in our favour.

    Absolutely! Ferdi would be absolutely huge IMO. I still think we will get the majority of the other names mentioned. Kadioglu wasn't one I would expect, he might have stalled at Fenerbache so far but his age, potential and ability is huge. For that reason it would turn my head more than the other names on the list.

    Disagree - this would be a big get because it would appear we have the weakest ties from the 3 nations he’s eligible for. A 19 year old Dutch u21 international at a big club like Fenerbahce is anything but underwhelming imo. FWIW, I have my doubts that it’s him.

    I thought the season was going to end near the end of October? Meaning an 'All Star Game' would then have to wait until the beginning of November. One of the benefits of NOT renewing my TFC tickets for a 13th year is I won't be going to their CCL game next Tuesday with a temperature of -10C (of course the game is at night)...not as bad as -17C which I'd heard someone say 14 days ago.

    ^^ Sure it's not one of the more exciting names that was being bandied about, but if it is him, it's not a development to be easily dismissed either. A 19 yr old, with over 25 appearances in the Eredivisie, now signed to one of the traditional powerhouses in Turkey and who has over 20 caps for Holland's u18-u21 youth teams. We've come a long way in the last few years when a player with this resume and who has other options for playing internationally potentially might commit to us and the news basically gets eyerolls around here!

    Should we copy MLS or follow the top European Leagues which do not bother with an all star game. Hmm, tough one. Particularly when you consider our already short season.

    After the season? Then you'd be playing in the cold weather that would limit the attendance. Let's get through one season first. Yes I think it was a blessing that CPL got a CCL league spot a year before we expected although the selection process of who gets to go is sketchy. However unlike some who say don't go until 2020, if that spot is given to somewhere like Belize for 'just the one year' it will be hard as hell to get it back.

    Canadian Premier League joins CONCACAF League

    Because MLS is a fake league that wasted over 20 years of US soccer progress and it has harmed Canada too. I'm in the US and we don't have better choices, but I will NOT let MLS ruin Canadian soccer! If any Canadians have grievances, I'll visit MLS HQ and burn that shithole down myself!

    York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread

    I'll should be able to post something tomorrow about tonight's pub night in Unionville. Almost 35 minutes of sound files with head coach Brennan, assistant coach Isacco, president Ganzhorn, and players Morey Doner, Steven Furlano, and Manny Aparicio. All unrushed and Kurt Larson free! Then I have a 5 minute interview with Furlano. News is tomorrow they will announce who the AS Blainville player is. Also Brennan said there are three imports signed now. From Sweden and Japan we already know but a Colombian he didn't name.

    2019 CPL All-Star game.

    What if the All-Star game was a charity game with the Champ vs League 18 (ala first NHL all-star game)? Re big club, I think organizing tours for bigger teams would be more useful than a single game with one

    it's an officially sanctioned team, they've played in World Cup/Asian Cuo Qualifiers - albeit under the name: Chinese Taipei (same as Olympics). Similar to how China allows Hong Kong and Macao to field our own national teams.

    Canadian Premier League joins CONCACAF League

    Nothing is ever gonna be ideal. Same thing happens in South American continental competitions. Its a soccer game.. its nothing new to anyone. If clubs make it a priority there should be no issue. My only real issue about the timing is the weather. I know some people think its cool to see teams come here and play in crud conditions but i like good football and i think the potential for crap weather is a bigger problem then teams playing so early in their calendar
  22. Perhaps of the Mbappe mold on the women's side. You can't coach speed. Must be exciting to watch, will keep an eye out for her.

    2019 CPL All-Star game.

    I’m just not sure that there’s much value to the excercise though. Why not just have the champ host a big international club? Better yet, just don’t do it! As Nancy Raegan used to say (I think it was Nancy) “Just Say No!”

    Why do you hate it so much though? I agree with you that MLS has lots of stuff that seems arbitrary and gimmicky, of course I’m way more excited by the CPL, and I’m glad that it’s a more traditional league... but I just don’t get why every issue is an opportunity for you to shit on MLS. What’s the deal?

    With a name like Emilio Estévez? And is that an actual FIFA sanctioned national team?
