  1. I've seen that before and it has nothing about his pre TFCA days nor does it say he played in an ethnic league. 

    Oh I didn't even look at it, I read it a long time ago. I asked Rollins about him a while ago on Twitter and he just said Babouli played in one of those ethnic leagues before TFC spotted him. My bad.


  2. Well, on the right side you can throw in Serban (who is a likely starter) or even Johnny Grant who Floro loves. The team will be professional, and will be missing some good players since the roster is only 18.

     

    You should also throw Mauro and Misik from Ottawa in the mix. If both see regular minutes with Ottawa no reason for them not to be in Pan Am squad.

     

    The one issue with us being poor is that the Pan Am games is the only place where we can evaluate these players. Would be better to have actual camps to gauge all possible players.


  3. Ledgwerood seems to be our RB of choice going forward. That's nice and all but I don't think he'll hold up against actual competition in the GC or latter stages of WCQ. I could easily see a Waylon Francis or and speedy winger/FB with good skill giving him issues since he isn't really fast or technically sound.


  4. Theres no way he can't be called up this summer. 

     

    Aleman too. 

     

    And hopefully cavallani. 

     

    Those 3 would work wonders in fixing our scoring problem.

    If Aleman is called up I wonder if he's on the GC or pan am squad. He's an AM which Floro doesn't use, and I would rather see him star on the pan am team than be a 85 min sub that is shunted out onto the wing.


  5. They initially gave a shit, but restrictions on the USL squads to ensure there will playing time for Canadians.

     

    I'm still wondering what happened to the Canadian domestic situation in MLS. Of course our ass-kissing media hasn't really followed up on that story.

    Oh I mean the CSA won't give a shit about the teams lobbying to remove the quota.


  6. Well done to Montreal and Vancouver second teams with filling out the rosters.  TFC meanwhile chose to bring in American Alex Bono to take away Roberts (proven USL keeper) spot... nice pick up but at least loan him elsewhere. Can't say I'm that impressed with TFC's USL roster so far.

    Have you seen our team? A few Canadian journeymen getting shots, a few young guys who recently came back to Canada, and a bunch of our young MLS  guys or academy players.

     

    What a ridiculous statement.


  7. If the USL teams don't perform well don't be surprised to see the 3 MLS teams lobby to have less Canadians there too.

    Don't think the CSA will give a shit.


  8. Don't know what Vancouver is doing. Tornaghi loaned instead of Carducci, and no Bustos loan either. Bustos needs to play, and so does Carducci. Also if Tornaghi is the starter for WC2 he is taking minutes away from a Canadian. I don't get this at all.

     

    Edit: According to some, Tornaghi is a one game thing, which I still don't get because I'd rather see one of the younger Whitecaps play. Apparently Carducci is injured. I am assuming Bustos is also injured, otherwise no reason for him not to play with WC2.


  9. According to de Vos, Vancouver and Floro had a good talk about Adekugbe. It makes sense that he stays because realistically  he'd be on the bench while de Jong starts for Canada.

     

    Having said that, if he's left off the U23 pan am squad because Vancouver wants him to stay then I'll have a problem with him and the Caps.
