Interview with Liam Millar 
At the 2:25 mark, he reveals that before moving to England after being scouted by Fulham, he had a trial with Toronto FC and he was released because they thought he was too small.
🤪🤣 
 

Dumbasses! 

Think where he’d be if he didn’t have an EU/UK passport, and think how many others are presently slipping through the cracks. Goes to show you why more pro clubs are vital. Can’t rely on any one (or handful of) technical staff(s) to properly evaluate the talent coming through and hand out the limited number of opportunities currently available.

He moved to England at age 12, must have been right before. 

That explains it then. Would have been when the academy was expanded to lower age groups during Winter's tenure. That initial U12 group i believe was coached by Rick Titus who was criticized for stocking that age group(s) with mostly Brampton kids.

Yes Rick Titus was the age group coach Rogen the academy director. Even though Titus was the rep director and 98 head coach at nmsc where Liam played his youth football for (nmsc) they released him. iThe academy was a chambles at the time. After Liam signed for Fulham FC 4 months later. TFC came back in for compensation from Fulham and we forward on the release letter from them...but no hard feelings things happen for a reason and he’s a better person and player for it. He was proper quality today vs Chelsea. A real threat all game....

Not the first time hearing youth politics playing a role in TFC youth teams from that time period...

Still happens to this day. In the TFC youth teams it's about who you know and who your Dad is.

That's true of a helluva lot of academies, everywhere I have lived (5 countries).

Who in their right mind decides that a player is to small at age 12? That is rediculous. It sounds more like an excuse from TFC. 

It happens at pretty much every program in Canada.  I’m surprised your outraged.

.. Sorry long story short 

Hi Alan.  I was a Charlton season ticket holder when I lived in London in the early 90's (we were ground sharing at Upton Park at the time) and I still go to The Valley every time I'm over.  Small world.

Good article, but that's the second time in the lead up to this game I've seen it reported that a top 10 finish will get us into the Gold Cup AND Nations League A. 10 is correct for the Gold Cup, but top 6 is needed for League A. Both articles might have been from the same author, but I'm not positive.
