    Should Canada get more spots than the US in the CCL?

    No way they are all the same. Tg11's writing style was so damn... unique. The other two have the totally identical anti US mantra, but he is out there all on his own.

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Given Bayern's league position this year, I doubt anyone is getting saved for anything.
  3. Which brings us full circle to the question I (and maybe others) raised initially - was there a CONCACAF-imposed registration deadline that prevented the excluded 4 clubs from participating in 2019? Because if there was, including that one small bit of information would have avoided all of the exasperation and frustration with the decision/announcement. People could still feel slighted by CONCACAF and its bureaucrats, but it would at least be an understandable outcome. And that would be far preferable to 4 CPL clubs and many Canadian footy fans feeling like they have been subjected to biased thinking on the part of the CSA.

    CPL General

    Has he represented another country internationally? If not, then there may be a fine distinction at play. The core issue may not be that full CMNT eligibility is need to count as a domestic, but that CMNT ineligibility might preclude you from counting as a domestic. Thus someone like Springer could be excluded on the basis of his commitment to St.K&N, whereas Ameobi could be considered a domestic via his PR status because he could, eventually get citizenship and still theoretically rep Canada. Just tossing it out as a possibility. No idea what the actual CPL bylaws say on the matter.

    CPL TV Contract

    Lets say, hypothetically, I am complete shit at Twitter. What does the linked tweet imply? All I see is someone tagging Vic R in a tweet - am I missing something?

  7. Apparently some either don't care that much because it is (presumably) temporary or think it is inexplicably hilarious.

    Cyle Larin

    Assuming we are talking about first division clubs, Holland or Belgium would be great destinations for Larin to get back on the upward trajectory he was on in MLS.
  9. To be honest, I don't really understand any level of nonchalance about this. Three of the seven founding CPL teams are being given significant preferential treatment in the two non-league competitions open to CPL clubs - in one instance through preferential seeding and in the other through outright exclusion of the other clubs. To me, that seems like a big deal.

    And he has to be aware that if you are going to choose Canada, now is the best time in recent history to do that. Exciting young players coming up through the ranks and 2026 as a nice carrot. We may not be England, but it isn't like you are settling for some shitty soccer backwater anymore. I realize that we don't have the results to back it up yet, but I truly believe we are entering a new era - and that this is a selling feature for our program.

    If it is Eustaquio, I would be very happy to get him - even with the current injury. With the level of treatment and rehab these guys have access to, there is no reason why this kind of injury needs to affect his play in the long term. Short term, of course he will be out for a while and then have a recovery period. But guys of this calibre are about increasing our quality player pool and raising the baseline when it comes to overall squad quality. Injury or not, this guy is 22 and he has the potential to do that for the next decade - and that is exciting. When you think of 2022 and 2026 as our golden opportunities, this guy would be in his prime. Then again if it Tomori, we get a guy who immediately provides an upgrade in our back line and has a ceiling above any of our current centrebacks. Either of these guys would be great.

    LOL, no offence but that is about as vague as possible.

    Canadian Premier League joins CONCACAF League

    Sid's rants are like a guilty pleasure. I realize he can get a bit silly, but I still love him. EDIT: For the record, I would totally be on board with getting his interest piqued on this issue. He may be over the top, but he can raise awareness about an issue. And this does seem somewhat rant-worthy - at least to push the CSA into defending its decision. If I was better at the Twitter, I would do it, but alas I am a bit of a luddite.
