hamiltonfan reacted to Bison44 in Clément Bayiha
Its strange to have so many of the youngsters dribbling at guys and showing lots of confidence. Bayiha looks exciting on the wing like Edwards did a few years back when he was breaking into MLS. Nice to have a steady stream of these guys coming out of the MLS squads.
hamiltonfan reacted to apbsmith in Gold Cup 2019
At this point, we should not rule out Petrasso at RB either, depth at worse case. I do think he's better suited a bit higher up the pitch, but still.
Here is my pro argument:
1) Last Gold Cup, played all 4 games full 90 mins including 0-0 vs Honduras, 1-1 vs Costa Rica. The minor defensive criticism that tourny was the lack of pace of Vitoria & Jokavic.
2) Few years removed from major career surgery
3) He's only 23
This is why we are finally blessed to have the CPL, really hoping he can remain healthy, have some quality outings and potentially springboard his career back on track. By no means am I saying call him in, but we should not forget about a guy, who not even 2 yrs ago when he was only 21 was solid for us.
hamiltonfan reacted to StillOnFire in York 9 2019 launch/offseason thread
I went for the home shirt, it was a close one! Hope I get it in time for the kick off match, but I'm not sure about that. I may have to find an illegal stream to watch it here though :/.
I was dabbling with the idea to come out to Hamilton for it, but my dad has been in hospital for the last couple weeks, and struggling with dementia. So it may not be until the a couple of seasons or so until I make the trip.
hamiltonfan reacted to yellowsweatygorilla in Players you expect to see in the CPL
While he only showed glimmers of form at the MLS level, Mo Babouli was completely dominant at L1O level and was exemplary at the USL level. He can also play CAM and I believe is versatile enough to play other attacking positions. I think he'd easily slot into any CanPL side, let alone York 9. There's no way he is Lombardo level (though again, to be fair to Lombardo, he had no opportunities after being cut from TFC).
hamiltonfan reacted to jpg75 in General Discussion on Canadian Youth Teams
Corbeanu was at TFC Academy for a year and a half, so presumably he was scouted and would have benefitted from the MLS bias but was overlooked.
Romania did not scout him, his older brother put together a highlight video which they sent to the Romanian FA.

hamiltonfan reacted to Cheeta in CONCACAF Nations League - Venue Discussions
The CPL is as much a Canada Soccer venture as a private enterprise, or feels like it at least so if these fixtures get pointed in the general direction of CPL venues I wouldn't be surprised.
BMO Field is, and should be, the hands down favourate regardless. I actually quite like Saputo Stadium and if CPL is exploring opportunities in Montreal...
Vancouver is out. No. If the 'Caps will put up with that surface God Bless 'em but until BC Place takes their footie responsibilities a little more seriously they shouldn't be allowed to abuse our National Team players anymore. Somebody tell me a re-lay is scheduled for sooner rather than later. Please.
hamiltonfan reacted to dyslexic nam in CONCACAF Nations League - Venue Discussions
I would like to see us utilize location strategically. I am not as informed as many on here about barriers and possibilities, but something like Commonwealth in Edmonton might be far enough to deter US fans from traveling. Anything right along the border risks a huge influx.
hamiltonfan reacted to Ansem in CONCACAF Nations League - Venue Discussions
Cuba: Toronto BMO Field
USA: Montreal Stade Saputo
•Montrealers are more anti-American than the rest of Canada. I remember Habs playoffs where the crowd booed the American Anthem promting the team to have a player asking the crowd to be respectful to the anthem on subsequent games....while out west they helped sing the damn anthem when the mic was broken (Junior hockey).
You want the US team to be taken out of their comfort zone and put them in an hostile environment + the cold
Why no Vancouver
•Turf: You don't want turf to limit your options like not playing Godhino.
•Central American and Caribbean nations don't like turf, but no tactical advantage against Americans who are used to it while we are good enough to beat Cuba on grass.

THE SEPTEMBER GAME WILL NOT BE IN VANCOUVER.
We are playing Cuba home and away in September folks.
The CSA is not flying the euro-based players Europe----YVR----HAV----Europe or Europe----HAV----YVR---Europe.
If the late May/early June pre-Gold Cup friendly game is in Toronto, the Cuba game will likely be in Montreal.
If the late May/early June pre-Gold Cup friendly game is in Montreal (like 2 years ago), the Cuba game will likely be in Toronto.
THE OCTOBER/NOVEMBER HOME GAME HAS A GOOD CHANCE OF BEING AT BC PLACE IN VANCOUVER (October is more likely).
