    CPL new teams speculation

    http://www.highlandersfc.ca/news/highlanders-fc-announce-new-ownership-group I would say this puts the Highlanders back on the radar. Based on the new owners profile, I wouldn't say deep deep pockets but definitely bringing some bucks to the table. Interesting snippet at the bottom of the article.

    Actually, I like him where he is. The 3 Canadian teams are reliant on Canadians due to economics and the domestic rule. Having a Canadian Coach on an American team gets more Canadians into the MLS. Hopefully it translates to the success he's had in the NASL.

    Good luck to Larin. I have ZERO sympathy for billionaires who take cheap shots at a players who helped make them millions of dollars and established their club in the league and their community. Larin was underpaid for what he brought to that club. F them, Good luck Larin!

    Victoria Highlanders 2018

    So there seems to finally be movement on the part of the Highlanders. Rumors of possible new owners abound and they recently posted this to Facebook: "We're on the cusp of some exciting news. Looking forward to sharing it all this week - including the release of the PDL schedule. Stay tuned for more information!"

    Sack the CSA

    This thread is for the sole purpose of shit ting on the CSA for the crap ass job they've been doing for the past 25-30 years. Mont Vic seems to be the only competent person to run that org. for god knows how long and the second he's gone it's back to the Brit old boys cronyism. Now we've fired a reasonably competent coach who was never afforded a chance to prove himself for a guy who has never coached a Men's professional club and whose CV includes a few seasons in the Sunderland academy and the New Zealand and Canadian women's team. The CSA reforms were supposed to lead to a more professionally run organization with members appointed for their expertise and free of the contradictory influence of the provinces. Now it looks like we have the most amateur leadership we've had in decades. It's time to Sack the CSA. It's time to SACK STEVEN REED!

    True, but i would argue Tabla has better technique and likely a better fit for Barca. I'd like to see Davies go to a big German club, but we'll probably see him in England.

    Sack the CSA

    Well... for the most part they do the endlessly boring necessary stuff that is required to run a large national organization and would probably be worse than solitary confinement for most people here. And if you ever get an offer to do it, I would be weary, it's probably a trap. You'll arrive and there will be plastic on the floor.

    Players want to play at a higher level where they can earn more money. There are at least three more MLS franchises coming over the horizon soon after LAFC with around 60 roster positions that will provide salaries beyond what a low budget start up pro league in Canada would have to offer. At least some of those new jobs in MLS will go to Canadians. The expansion process is likely to continue until they reach 32 or so and will almost inevitably hoover up more CMNT players in the years ahead. CanPL, if it ever actually does launch, will be another much needed stepping stone to bigger and better things for Canadian players rather than the desired destination for players that are likely to make a serious impact for the CMNT in World Cup qualifiers or Gold cup tornaments, unless a much more serious level of investment starts to materialize than the one that has been talked about in podcasts and interviews by Paul Beirne and Brian Clanachan over the last year or so.

    The Vs should have a permanent rep on the CSA board.

    Officially undisclosed, TVA reported 7 figures. I can't remember what podcast it was but one I listened to in the last couple of weeks heard it was between 1.8 and 2.2 million if I remember correctly.

    By the way, never been happier that a Canadian is moving to MLS. Absolutely stoked for MAK and hope he makes the most of the opportunity.

    The interesting thing is, when you say something nasty about someone, it says a lot more about you than it does about them.

    I’m not convinced. CPL teams certainly aren’t going to spending material coin on buying fringe CMNT players or frankly any players. I believe this is the result of having a Canadian in the management ranks. Marc did the same thing with San Francisco. Well done MDS!

    Yes. Petrasso, Henry, Liam Fraser, Kaye, Jakovic - when is the last time MLS picked up this many Canadians in one off season? We are feeling the effects of CanPL already. There is already a more competitive market place for Canadian players. Its a win - win for Canadian soccer.

    Sack the CSA

    I’m loving this thread, but honestly there should be realistic ways of sacking thr CSA. I think the Federal and provincial bodies need re-organization. Its been broken for the past 30 years almost as we’ve been regressing since we last made the World Cup. I’m curious to hear some ways of trying to better ourselves. I’m also curious to hear what Zambrano’s “Manifesto” if you call it entailed?? Thought some whispers stated that the thought we need to refix the provincial and some federal bodies to improve here. Hope Zambrano releases his ideas of what he had planned.
