    Ottawa CPL Club

    If Ottawa joined CPL, wouldn't JDG have to take a pay cut due the cap on operating costs?

    Based on previous drafts, most CB in the top 10 seem to get a lot of game time first season. We can only hope.

    He'll have a better chance for success in CPL, same with Comsia and Miller.

    Goalkeeper is a different skill set to outfield players so it does not really surprise me.

    NCAA Canadians 2018

    There was a twitter rumour about him being courted by CPL teams shortly after he won the Championship. Looks like the existence of another league has caused MLS to pony up for the best talent.

    Didn't someone on this board predict this happening based on the Nike commercial with Davies.

    CPL Stadium Thread

    If this is the end goal for the stadium, I'd be very disappointed. That's with the terrible location and gimmicky cavalry concepts. It looks like the owners know little to nothing about football fans. A better option would have to scrap all current stands, rotate the pitch 90 degrees and then build around it. The club house would then have a Highbury feel.

    Herdman new head coach

    Teibert seems to drift out left when he's playing a more advanced midfield position, much like Matuidi. I would have dropped Piette and given Chapman a go, but I understand with the field conditions, maybe it was better to be more pragmatic.
  11. It's also worth noting that with the introduction of TAM and increased salary budgets, young domestics players in MLS are getting less minutes. Over the years, MLS has stopped being a development league. https://www.businessinsider.com/number-of-american-players-in-mls-has-declined-2018-3 http://www.espn.com/soccer/major-league-soccer/19/blog/post/3606287/limited-mls-minutes-mean-american-forwards-will-look-to-europe As long as CanPL can keep to it's business model and remain focused on the Canadian (specifically young Canadian) player.
  12. Depends how well CanPL does. Just with the existence of 7 additional teams + 3 MLS; Based on the population discrepancy, we provide better pro opportunities than the US per capita.

    Canada-Dominica Game Thread (R)

    David looks a hell of a player. He shows a lot of flexibility as a wide forward and his ability to combine and make smart runs is something we don't have right now. He has to keep starting and if that pushes Davies to left back making us lobsided to the left, I'm all for it. In fact, with Ballou committing and Millar in the wings (pun intended), to me, Davies is a LB now until he proves otherwise at Bayern.

    Best XI

    ZBG for Millar.
  15. Given that a majority of the team is from the GTA, I assume the players have some preference to see family, friends etc outside of the 2 hour match. I also assume the training facilities are better in and around the GTA.
