    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    Yeah I don't expect the numbers will stay nearly that high, just thought it was interesting.

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    Got thinking about a conversation in another thread about the cores of the teams. Some teams do seem to be signing players that will have familiarity with playing with their teammates already which should help early on with chemistry, so figured I would do up a quick table to show which teams the CPL rosters have been pulling from thus far, and the percentage of the players drawn from said teams Cavalry FC Calgary Foothills 86% Forge FC Sigma FC 80% FC Edmonton FCE Academy 67% Pacific FC Vancouver WFC2 60% HFX Wanderers FC Montreal 33% York9 FC Vaughan Azzurri 29% Valour FC WSA Winnipeg 25% Thus far it seems like the HFX, York and Valour are a bit of a mish mash. -Cavalry is most impressive as their players all from the Foothills roster just last season that won PDL, so should mostly have their chemistry figured out -HFX does seem to have a couple different groupings. A few of their players have also played together in Trinidad -York9, I feel like with Carmine Isacco, a few more Vaughan Azzurri players will be signed before long, plus probably a few of the stronger players from other York Region teams in L1O -Valour, like HFX has another pairing in which Murrell and Thomas have played together in University. But overall, their roster seems to be the most random which I had kind of expected. Would be helpful if they could sign Danto and Musse unless they choose to stick with Calgary

    Forge FC (Hamilton) launch/2019 offseason thread

    Fair enough. Questioning sanity could have been exaggerating a tad. And its true, it appears that so far a lot of teams are building players that will be somewhat familiar with each other: Pacific FC - Vancouver WFC II Cavalry FC - Calgary Foothills HFX Wanderers - FC Montreal/Santa Rosa FC Edmonton - FCE Academy Forge FC - Sigma FC I still think that at this point a team like Forge and even Cavalry will still have an advantage chemistry wise

    CPL Season Schedule

    Can't remember where or when I saw it, but I do remember someone at the league (Possibly Clanachan) saying that the league would more closely model the South Korean league rather than MLS

    I think there is a difference between getting one or two players from a Premier League team in England, to having an MLS team park a bunch of kids on a CPL roster when both MLS and CPL are supposed to be considered Div 1A and Div 1B

    Yes I actually read your post. If you are going to post things like, "take this with a grain of salt" because you don't want people to question your opinions, what is the point of posting at all? And I wasn't specifically trying to target your comments, there was a number of comments questioning the moves, and yours was just the most recent I had read before posting. Either way, I have a feeling you guys will be winning the league (pretty early to say since you only have a few players on the roster). So far the signings have been what I view from afar as ideal. There are a number of other players that played with Sigma that I could also see signing in the near future if they haven't already signed such as Jonathan Grant, Dominic Samuel, Giuliano Frano, Justin Stoddart, Mo Babouli, Kadell Thomas etc . I had even thought that they may have been able to get Emery Welshman and Manjrekar James if not for recent changes in their club situations. The core seems to be solid, and Bobby does have a number of contacts with clubs in Netherlands and Belgium which I feel like he will use to his advantage to fill in holes once the roster is fairly set.

    Anyone that criticizes Forge for picking up a core of Sigma players is absolutely bonkers. Most of these guys played together growing up and will have chemistry, and they all know how Bobby S wants to play

    Derek Gaudet (TFC, Portland Timbers) and Paul Craig (FC Edmonton) have professional experience

    I remember it being said that drafted U Sports internationals would count as domestic. Dont remember where I saw it though

    Dominic Samuel or Giuliano Frano would be good ones

    Would be a shame if Fury weren't part of it. Seeing CPL teams play them is what I am most looking forward to in the tournament this year

    Oh I still remember that clearly. Roserie's is funnier though since he had done much less at the time, and since

    Guess he has gotten over himself after his kick and chase comments

    I more meant CPL teams having some bargaining power with MLS for transfers, instead of mostly only being able to sell to three MLS teams
