    dbailey62 got a reaction from Levi Oakey in We've lost Jarrek! :(   
    We've lost Jarrek, one of the original Voyageurs. I've only just found out. Jaroslaw Popowicz is his real name and I met him via the Toronto Lynx many years ago!
    He was a great guy and I'm in shock!
    RIP my friend!

    I will wait until bad things actually happen before I start succession planning.  At this point we may not have a lot of evidence of his amazing abilities when it comes to coaching the CMNT, but we also don't have evidence of any alleged incompetence.  I am still reserving judgement until we hit the hard tests in the GC and CNL.  At this point, scouting his replacement seems premature.  And even if it turns out that he is a bit of a snakeoil salesman, the reality is that so far he has sold some important people the snakeoil.  While other factors would be in play (the rise of Davies, the potential for a Canada-scale golden generation, WC2026, etc.) two significant young targets have been recruited under his watch.  And yes, maybe he could do this just as effectively in a GM role - but  we don't really have cause for complaint yet in terms of his role as head coach.

    I think the CSA will stand behind Herdman for some time regardless of results, if he fails the CSA will not quickly admit their error I hiring him! I just hope he is successful and proves a lot of people including myself wrong!

    What do you mean by expanded platform? 
    Membership will be available by the end of the month. 
    What would you want a BoD to do, or rather what would you want the V's to do that would require a BoD?

    .... and Altidore started the year playing on an injured foot during the CCL which finally couldn't take anymore stress requiring in-season surgery! He finished 2017 and scored his MLS Cup winning goal on that same injured foot. Quite inspirational actually!

    The contract was terminated by mutual consent according to Bez in the Toronto Sun.
    Just saying!
    Midfielder Ager Aketxe’s hefty contract, the biggest black mark on the resume of general manager Tim Bezbatchenko so far, was terminated “by mutual consent.”

    I am pretty sure no one forced him to take the job.  He is a big boy - he can make his own decisions and live with the consequences.

    Before he was given the job of coaching our men's team, there was talk of him potentially taking over the England WNT job, though I don't know if this was genuine interest or not.
    It could have been used as leverage for the CanMNT job, but considering his success with the women of New Zealand and Canada, it wouldn't be surprising if the English interest was genuine.
    Either way, I don't see it as the CSA doing Herdman a disservice. He didn't have to take this challenge. If he flames out, well that would be the risk he took, wouldn't it? It's hard for me to see it as the CSA doing him a disservice or setting him up to fail.

    Change "when" to a mighty big "IF". It's like saying "when" the League of Wales is as good as the Premiership, will Swansea and Cardiff City be forced to move?
    Granted, that example is extreme as CPL will not be that much weaker than MLS but in Canada, it will come down to commercial viability. With TFC drawing 27k per match, would you really want it to join a league averaging less than 8k per match?
    It would be cutting off one's nose to spite the face!
    USL and CPL will be comparable thus making this current scenario feasible and realistic!
