You know who I am a bit surprised to not hear anything about? Michael Petrasso. I haven't heard anything about his time in England recently, but also nothing about any CPL sides being interested in him.

and he is a NT member these last years

You think Petrasso is still in England?? What are the chances of him finding a club like Edgar did?? 

Or maybe he is burning up the phones back in canada trying to find a place to play for 2019.

Rumor in Winnipeg is that Valour FC is interested in Petrasso and may be signing him.

That would be great, where did you hear that?? The free press?

Canada’s David Edgar on future CPL move: ‘It’s a possibility’

https://canpl.ca/article/canadas-david-edgar-on-future-cpl-move-its-a-possibility

It’s looking likely that he has signed for Valour.  I was sort of thinking he might end up in Halifax or pacific with his cmnt connections.  

My hope for him is that he gets his feet wet in CPL and then heads a KWU CPL bid as a franchise player and maybe even a Simpson/Friend type role.

I don't see anything in that article that gives any indication of that...

Ryan Brandt is a Winnipeg writer who has some insider knowledge.  Seems to be a formula of the league that they have insiders dropping hints.  

Could be wrong of course but that’s the writing on the wall I see.

Scratch Callum Irving from the list, headed back to Ottawa. Odd timing of this move, possibly he got more money from the Fury?

 

 

I think it's more a case of Ottawa not getting the back-up goalkeeper they wanted.

Hard to see Monsalve as the starter and Irving as the backup. If Irving was signed as backup no wonder their payroll is so high, they could have easily signed a cheaper, younger guy.

There was no doubt contact and Ryan Brandt has been dropping hints on that basis, but it's a bit of a stretch to spin the move to Hartlepool as anything other than him hoping to get another two or three extra seasons at lower league level in England before winding things down in CanPL.

I think that the plan was to get Beaulieu as a backup or someone else as a starter when that didn't pan out because of his injury and the uncertainty of the Fury, they couldn't get the goalkeeper they wanted and by the time that the season started, and they thought that maybe Monsalve needs more competition.

In a recent Instagram story by Forge it shows Roberts with another GK, Spiro Koskinas. I don't know anything about him but could he be the third GK for Forge?

edit: Looks like he played for Toronto Skillz in 2017.

I’ve never heard of him, but great CV. He’s only 31 too... could be a very useful player at the CPL level.
