  1. Wow. Huge. Full credit to Herdman. Wow.
  2. I recall a time when we had a healthy number of moderators. Not sure what happened.
  3. A certain Twitter account that tracks Canadian players has suggested that Daniel has retired from pro soccer. He had a poor year last year, no goals for Cincinnati, mid year move to Ottawa and also no goals there. But still he's only a year removed from scoring 7 in 30 appearances in the USL. You'd have thought CPL would be perfect for him. Only 26.
  4. They may want to expand to 24 teams, like the Euro. So 10 Conmebol and 14 Concacaf. If so, I dont think we lose much by merging the competitions. GC every 2 years kindof dilutes the competition. On the other hand, Ive seen it reported that the GC is played every 2 years as it is a cash cow and Concacaf relies on the money generated to stay afloat.
  5. The CSA has been pretty good about releasing news on players in the build up to upcoming games to generate interest and sell tickets, like with Tabla and the Dominica game in Toronto. There's no way they'd announce Eustaquio or Ferreira now given their long term injuries. Even if they've signed up, they'll sit on the news in order to use it to sell tickets down the road. Akinola would be a joke, he's done nothing to deserve a call up. I'm thinking Tomori.
  6. Gutierrez only saw the pitch 7 times last year, 630 minutes in total. The Chilean league is good, but barely getting minutes on a mid table team, thats not good enough to walk onto the CMNT. Cordova got 16 appearances and over 1000 minutes, and they basically play the same positions. If its him, it would be underwhelming.
  7. If these 3 teams all end up at the bottom of the table by July, its going to be disastrous on multiple levels. This just reeks of shit we'd expect from Jack Warner's Concacaf.
  8. What email did you send this to? Would be nice if "the voyageurs" would release a statement on this matter as a group. I think we unanimously think this decision is terrible.
  9. Hope something works out for him, this is the level he should have gone with in the beginning. I still cannot understand why Larin chose MLS and Orlando over Genk back in 2015.
  10. I really hate it when Herdman says players can be pioneers if they choose Canada. As if 1986 never happened.
  11. Last thursday Gent won their Belgian Cup semi final via penalty shootout. Our boy stepped up as their 5th and final shooter... (at 4:17):
  12. Some twitter noise re. Lucas to Galatasaray lately. Would be an interesting move to say the least.
  13. Concacaf President Vic Montagliani was interviewed on KJ and Caldwell's new podcast: - Nations league determine the seeding for WCQ - If Qatar WC remains at 32 teams, the probability that Concacaf keeps the Hex format is high.
  14. Tough to take any Turkish football press reports at face value, but it seems Larin will be staying with Besiktas and not going out on loan. http://ipad.sporx.com/senol-gunesten-cyle-larin-karari-SXHBQ756860SXQ
  15. Wikipedia lists 2 match days in each of Sept, Oct and Nov, and the semifinals and final in March 2020. But 6 group stage games games doesnt really make sense in a 3 team group so you may be right.
  16. In an attempt to look on the bright side: this year we are playing at least 10 official games. Thanks to the nations league, we will have more prep games heading into WCQ than we have ever had before. Also, the team that is likely to play in WCQ is already together and pretty much set . We are much further ahead now than we were last cycle at this point.
  17. Only 30 years old. Perhaps he is Pacific FC's next signing?
  18. Larin is more likely to end up at Forge FC for half a year than go back to MLS.
  19. Very important signing. I always thought the main attraction for young players to CPL should be the lack of red tape in getting transferred out after a good season. If Sigma are still managing him as they do with most of their alums, then there is an extra incentive to move him if does well. CPL has to position themselves as the better choice for players who want to make the move to Europe.
