  1. My two cents:

     Strong roster for this type of game (friendly in Spain against a team from Oceania -- not exactly intense). This is good

    South American/Mexican players -- perhaps travel is too far for the week?  Interesting no Whitecaps though.

    Once again we need to improve our goalie pool. Only one of the three keepers listed gets any playing time. 

    A number of players have had no official game time playing time recently:  Morgan, Chapman, RIcketts, Thomas, Leutwiler, Edgar.

    Prediction 2-0 win: Millar and Larin with goals.

    Most likely AJH I'd say but reports are he's out a number of weeks with a hamstring injury so he'll get a late start to the season.

    Davies in a break out year. 11 goals and then Whitecaps sell him in the off season the day he turns 18 to Leeds (who have been promoted to the Premiership) where he starts every match. A guy can dream . . . 

    1. So this sucks. Larin is the 5th ranked striker. Hoepfully he gets loaned out ASAP.

      BESKITA coach Günes: Cyle Larin is the 5th choice striker behind Vagner Love, Negredo, Talisca and Pektemek

  3. Google translate and Besiktas fans on twitter tell me that Larin did not travel to their game tomorrow in Konya. In some, Larin was called "the not ready/fit Larin" and in others the reason was that Beisktas was at the limit for foreign players. Apparently they can have 12 foreign players on a squad of 21. All this too say, until Larin is game ready he isn't going to be on the pitch and I imagine he'll be watching from the stands against Bayern Munich next week.

    Watch "Hoilett Goal! Millwall v Cardiff City  0:1! 09.02.2018" on YouTube

    I watched part of this game. 1-1 draw, Cardiff had a couple of poor calls against them. Should have been 2-1. Junior is playing well. He had a nice goal and he won a number of corners and had some great dribbling and passing sequences. 

  5. Hmmm nice to have a game but I kind of like the approached floated around by Oz about playing relevant teams on their home soil so we are ready for WCQ.  We are almost back to playing Azerbajain or equivalent in a farmer's field in the depths of Austria. Not all that relevant to playing in 32c heat and 94% humidity with pennies being whipped at your head and piss bags hucked at your bench.

    Alphonso Davies made $65,000 last year, which was tied with Ben McKendry for the lowest salary on the club's payroll. His contract is set to expire on December 31, 2018 but it looks like Vancouver holds club options for 2 additional years just like Orlando did with Larin. Hopefully he can make a move after the 2018 season, but it may not be easy if Vancouver is not willing to sell yet.

    With any luck he and his advisers start plotting out a transfer now so they can work things out and he can leave on good terms, the Caps get some transfer $ and Davies winds up in the Premier League. Win,win,win

  7. I'll be skewered for saying this but with an objective look (and not with the voyageurs glasses on). Kelly is pretty accurate. The woman's team is doing well, is revered nationally and gets the mainstream sports attention the men's team could only dream about. The men's team (and I watch all the goddamn games on bad internet feeds just like the rest of you and I try and convince friends to watch who think I'm nuts, so I am invested) is quite frankly a shit show. Kelly is saying exactly what Sid says in his clip. but using different words. The men's program (not the players) is a dumpster fire. That's what Kelly is saying, and he's right.

    20171231_181503.thumb.png.53edc840312fa1f030ea742aea1daa18.pngIt has Arsenal at 11th from what I am seeing. It is probably referring to one of these many other clubs called Arsenal. It is ridiculous the number of teams that are named Arsenal. They really need to become more original.

    Fair enough. Missed the top Arsenal! I guess the lesson here is to not get excited if you are being scouted by Arsenal!

    I was just looking at FiveThirtyEight's world club rankings and we are an impressive 185th. That is above Cruz Azul (199) and Guadalajara (271) of Mexico and Aston Villa (206), Middlesbrough (218) and Cardiff (220) of the Championship. That is very good for an MLS team that has to deal with salary caps.

    The same ranking has Arsenal at 320.  .  . Not sure who dreamed this system/methodology up. 

  10. So has anybody heard anything about Henry? He isn't in the line up for today's League Cup match. i thought this would be the one chance he would get at least to see what the West Ham bench looked like. It is almost like he has vanished off the face of the earth. He can't get playing time, isn't loaned out. . . sad really.
