    I see CSA prefer checks over stripes as well.

    CPL new teams speculation

    I"m not sure where you're from, but no one is commuting regularly from Penticton or Vernon to watch sports games in Kelowna on a regular basis. Furthest commute is West Kelowna to Winfield at best. Maybe you are from the area and have a different impression than I do. Just my thoughts as someone who grew up in Penticton andwent to university in Kelowna.

    It will most likely be a red with white accents version of Nike’s Vapor Aeroswift template.

    2019 Voyageurs Cup

    Up to now, the number 1 seed in the Voyageur's Cup has been determined by league position the previous season. They may decide to chance things with the entry of the CPL teams. But if they do go the seeding route, using the previous seasons league results (whether it be MLS or CPL) is a good starting point. It adds value to league position as well.

    MLS Shortening Season

    OK, if you want to include preseason...8 months in MLS vs 10 months in Europe. For almost 50% of the players in the league, the season is too short.

    TFC 2018-2019 Off-season

    Have thought of him. Of course he'd improve the backline, but Fulham's defence has been a shambles and while that's not entirely on him, it does give me reason to pause, or at least look more favorably at a move for Gonzalez, Cameron or even Parkhurst instead, despite all playing at a lower level than Ream is. Additionally, he's a left footed centre back so he'd theoretically be competing with Mavinga in a 3 man backline, which may be a pro or a con depending on how you look at it. He can play left back too (as can Mavinga) so that doesn't hurt I guess. Another thing with him is that I don't see him as being ideal for the Moor role, if TFC continue to play in that way, that is. That being said, his quality is such that should we get him, Vanney may just rethink the 3 man backline concept all together. In other words, stick to 4 at the back: Morrow----Mavinga----Vdw----Auro Morrow---Ream---Moor----VDW Ream----Mavinga---Moor---VDW/Auro

    Nike?

    @Olympique_de_Marseille, is that Scott Arfield in the Huddersfield (i.e. Canada circa 2011) jersey? That’s amazing hindsight spotting of foreshadowing.
  10. Maybe with the CSB involvement they will convince Canada Soccer to take a cue from the CPL and not mention the team’s location (Forge, Valour, Cavalry). So we will go from the Canadian Soccer Association to Canada Soccer (the current name) and finally to something like Polite Football Association. Can our artists come up with a potential logo for that?

    Nike?

    Obviously we will be getting bespoke off the shelf templates from Nike. I went ahead and put the CSA logo on five of them that I could find. Which of these do you like best/least?

    Herdman new head coach

    Just want to echo what @Kent is saying. When he says 4th/5th ranked, he's specifically talking in the context of our talent and that is based specifically on how many "tier 1" players we have, which he defines as those in the "top 5 leagues of the world". In response to a question that asks if and when we can consider ourselves as serious challengers for a WC spot, he cites Japan, Sweden and Iceland as examples of teams who now have a substantial amount of these "top tier" players, and says that having 7 (Iceland) or 11 (Sweden) or 13 (Japan) is the difference between not qualifying and having the ability to qualify and give a respectable account of ourselves. Anyways, he goes on to mention that currently we have a single player in this category (Hoilett) and soon to have two players (Hoilett+Davies). He follows this by mentioning Ballou, Millar and ZBG as examples of our potential, since each could theoretically realize their potential by progressing to their respective 1st teams. Currently though, with only one top level player, we are behind Mexico, USA and CR, though we are ahead of both Honduras and Panama - hence the whole 4th ranked in concacaf thing. And I wouldn't take any of it too seriously as it is just a general metric with clear and obvious flaws. For example, last year Arfield would have made it 2 top tier players for Canada, but has anything changed because he swapped Burnley for Rangers? He is still the same player. Hutchinson despite playing in what Herdman would call a second tier league could be considered a top tier player because he could play in a top 5 league but has chosen not to. Etc. All in all, I like these interviews with Herdman. It's nice to hear what our manager has to say, no matter who our manager is. And yeah, I think we all want a Jan camp btw. You won't find any differing opinions on that around here, nor will our complaining make it happen at this stage of the game, so not really an interesting talking point for me personally. We are all in agreement it should be happening. That I am sure of.

    I hope the Macron kit reveals don't get delayed now because of this announcement. Even though it is last minute, there is still time to take advantage of last minute Christmas shoppers.

    CPL new teams speculation

    Because as you point out, it’s population is more than 200k but less than 500k. I don’t think his list was meant to offend fans of teams in the smaller markets, just a rough guideline to help try to picture what the league pyramid could look like many years down the road.

    General Discussion on CMNT

    Right, I had forgotten about him and the CSB angle. He used to work with Nike in the Middle East or something right? It pays to have connections!

    2019 Voyageurs Cup

    When people on this forum have talked about teams getting a bye they usually think it should be determined by the previous Voyageurs Cup results rather than league play. So TFC as champs would fit the bill next season.

    Herdman new head coach

    That’s not what he was saying. He was saying that on paper our national team roster is usually 4th or 5th best in CONCACAF. He was saying “ranked” as if it was fact, so it sounds like he has some metric that takes leagues of players (1st tier England, 2nd tier Norway, etc) and spits out a number for the team as a whole. He was NOT saying we are the 4th or 5th best team in CONCACAF. What was more interesting/probably misleading was him talking about getting a result against French Guiana getting us to the hex. I imagine this is just a deliberately false statement to try to sell tickets like they did with the previous home game, but if there could be any shred of truth to it I suppose the implication would be that teams in League A will be the only ones with even a theoretical chance at qualification for the World Cup. I think I hope that isn’t the case, but I guess I’ll wait to see what the qualifying format is before I pass judgement.

    Did Nike pay the Voyageurs for the shot of the march against Mexico?

    I've only used the streaming once for a pre season game, but I think it went okay. The mobile ticketing works quite well.

    Might finally be able to buy a Canada jersey in Sportchek now.
