    Rocket Robin got a reaction from deschamp86 in CPL General   
    CPL teams (well York 9 is for sure) leaving for 10 days in Dominican Republic on Friday April 5th.  York 9 will play three games.  None of the CPL teams will play each other during that time.  Learned all this at the Pub Night in Brampton.  I should have a post link up on the York 9 sub board tomorrow night (or Wednesday at the latest) all going well.

    Rocket Robin got a reaction from deschamp86 in York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread   
    I watched Matt Silva a lot on the PDL Toronto Lynx between 2011 and 2014.  In 2014 he was the starter in most games and on the bench was.....later day Sigma/Forge Triston Henry.  Trouble with Lynx was that they only scored 15 goals in 14 games so once the opponents scored, it was likely the game was over.

    So the CPL schedule is out.  Will only comment for now on the York 9 FC home games.  Their most popular game times are Saturday afternoons at 3:30pm.  
    With the 400 pound gorilla downtown and all the flak about playing AWAY in Hamilton on a TFC home game I was looking for other conflicts.  
    Wed June 26th has York 9 home against Cavalry at 7:00pm while TFC home against Atlanta is at 8:00pm.  
    Wed July 17th has York 9 home against Pacific at 7:00pm while TFC home against NY Red Bulls at 8:00pm.  
    Sat July 27th has York 9 home against HFX Wanderers at 1:00pm while TFC home against FC Cincinnati at 8:00pm.  (looks like they moved forward York's game a few hours too avoid conflict--remember you can take the subway from the York U or Pioneer Village direct to Union Station and then catch the Harbourfront streetcar to the gates of BMO Field).  
    Sat Aug 10th has York 9 home against Valour FC at 1:00pm while TFC home against Orlando at 7:30pm.  (see game above).  
    Sun Sept 15th has York 9 home against Valour FC at 3:30pm while TFC home against Colorado at 5:00pm.  With TFC spread all over the map on game starts maybe this game could have been bumped to 1:00pm but that would have been a rush to do a double even by subway.  
    Finally Sun Oct 6th has TFC home against Columbus 4:00pm while York 9 is AWAY against Forge FC at 3:30pm.  Only mentioned for the fire storm of the inaugural game of opening weekend April 27th.

    If there’s ever a time for commentary, it’s for a brand new league with players that are unrecognizable to the majority of fans.

    Since they have to have the team chosen before July (?) when the CONCACAF starts, there will have to be four matches for each team against each other in the maybe first seven weeks of the season to give them prep time.

    First home games Wed May 22 and Sat May 25th...great! TFC plays home game against San Jose on Sunday night so no boo-hoo reporters complaining they can't get to the game.
    Probably good travelling fan support from Hamilton area to fill in the stadium which will make it look good.

    Rocket Robin got a reaction from Zem in Players you expect to see in the CPL   
    I think teams have signed a few more players than have been announced.  
    Your number for York 9 FC is 17 but at the last pub night Brennan said they've signed about 20.  
    Just connecting the puzzle, it was blurted out about their Voyageurs Cup match against AS Blainville that they were so impressed with them they've signed a player.  So that's one more!
    Brennan says about their imports (without naming them) that they've signed a Swedish guy and one from Japan then let slip that they've just signed  a Colombian.  The Colombian doesn't show up on the CPL list yet.  So that's one more!  
    The L1O/CPL combine was just held January 24th.  The invitees were supposed to be hand selected to NOT have to go through the 200+ per city tryouts months ago so in theory they should be better than the trialists that have signed a few L1O players.  The pub night on Monday just happened to have two players who passed through to the afternoon final of the combine chatting with the three already signed/announced players who were later speaking to the fans.  
    Actually I have the sound bytes of the conference on my site.   http://www.rocketrobinsoccerintoronto.com/reports19/19york062.htm   'first segment'  for the two 'oops' moments.  
    That link was already posted in the York 9 sub-forum here.
