    Is Forge even going to have a full team to start the season? Kind of lagging behind with 8 signings.

    I suppose this is why its taking CPL so long to figure out the schedule. Lots of things to figure out between league play, CONCACAF League, and Canadian Championship.

    Well, guys who are producing numbers half decently in higher divisions are out of reach so this is the type of “project” player you’d be wise to go after.  6’5 and a nose for goal.. ya never know.  
    There actually was a Canadian/Slavic  striker who did decently at the 3rd division level and had a stint in the second division a few years back (never got a Canada call obviously).. anyone remember who I’m talking about?  I don’t know what happened with him.

    Why don't we see how this league goes before we start talking about (unlikely) double franchise cities?

    What I find most surprising is how Montserrat could be at the Gold Cup. Currently sitting in 13th (could drop 1 or 2 more spots with the remaining matchday 3 games), I assume they will beat Cayman Islands in their last game with the results they've had so far. With that and a few draws between other evenly matched clubs on matchday 4, a team that ranked 205 in the FIFA rankings before this tournament, could qualify for the Gold Cup.

    Yeah a lot of meaningless possession, not getting the defenders moving much. When we do try, either waste an opportunity, or we pass it right to them. Not liking the looks of this game.

    Fucking garbage play.
    Our guys seem completely clueless going forward.  Guys just walking the ball up the field until a Kittian player takes it away.  Our guys just stand around waiting for a pass rather than moving trying to create space.
    Unlike us, when St. Kitts has the ball, they actually seem interested in getting forward.
    This is Dale Mitchell-era level trash from us.

    Haven't missed much other than some sloppy play from Canada. Very disappointing start.

    This is what I’m hoping for as well.  If we had 3 regional leagues that operated like in Germany (im not sure how the promotion relegation works there.. i.e if two teams from the same region were relegated from the B3 but they make it work so I’m sure we could make it work).
    Im sure there wasn’t much of a fee involved here as it is a no brainer for L1O.  Another thing Ottawa is missing out on.. 
    Im hoping these clubs aren’t direct affiliates like NA minor league teams but feeder clubs.  It will be interesting to see how this affects TFC Academy as well, depending on the arrangements.  I.e if you can play L1O and have the chance to be called up to first team CPL every so often why play for TFC III in the same league and be 2++ steps away from the first team? 
    Hopefully we are taking advantages of the short comings of MLS.  Beat them by doing things from a true footballing perspective and you’ll make MLS development a plan B.

    Talking weeks until signings. Not really news considering Y9 already said last month their first player signing will be revealed at an event on the 28th of this month I believe.
    Other than that, there are a couple interesting tidbits in here:
    Gale: “We have an international standard winger from South America who’s interested in coming,”
    Gale added he’s also working to establish an ongoing loan agreement with a club competing in a top European league.

    This is where I see the schedule come in to play. Once there's a list of games people can actually see, they may be more inclined to buy season seats.

    Impressive that a Nevisian footballer is captaining a Championship side. Vaughan Azzurri defender Justin Springer on their roster as well. Maybe one of the internationals on a CPL roster next season.
    St Kitts will be no pushover. We can't be sloppy on heavy offense. We got away with some sloppy play against USVI and Dominica, but I feel St Kitts has a better chance to capitalize on a counter.

    It being the largest metro area doesn't make it more likely to have a spike for no apparent reason in memberships. If anything the opposite would be true. If it was so likely to have a lot of memberships, why now and not originally?
    My best guesses would be that it's either the availability of tickets to be purchased, or maybe there is something related to them targeting youth clubs. Like, maybe they had a window to buy memberships at a reduced price (or receive them free) that just recently opened up.
    Anyways, it's good to see the raised numbers. Hopefully it translates to ticket sales!

    There is no chance people are paying $50 membership fees.  They’re inflating their numbers (as all teams should be doing!!).  Think about it.. you give someone a free membership, how does that hurt you? You lose nothing and build hype.  Maybe the first smart move this organization has made removing that stain.
    you would have to be ignorant to think they’ve overnight jumped up to a respectable number from 150..

    That's one of the biggest points IMO. I do not want to pay $399 + taxes and fees to a 15-time free for all for the best seat in the grandstand. What about if I get up to get concessions? Do I lose my spot and have to find a new one? It's a possibility because there's no way of controlling where people sit. All seems like a hassle for $399+.
    The most I want to pay for a GA seat in bleachers is 10-15 a game. It just seems crazy that a team in a tier one professional football league will have GA bleacher season seating in the first place.
