    Canadian Nationalization Countdown

    I see what you're saying and I agree but the things is according to FIFA rules you have to be eligible to represent the nation before being provisionally cap-tied For example if he does play in the U17 CONCACAF Championship for the USMNT and he doesn't have his Canadian citizenship then I'm not sure he's still able to switch

    Players you expect to see in the CPL

    Source? Maybe you know something the rest of us don't He's a solid player, the Colombian D2 is stronger than people think and was listed on the 40 man provisional roster for the 2017 GC Him being from St. Catherine's, ON (Niagara Region) was kinda he'd sign with Forge although if I recall correctly Jimmy Brennan did go to the Dominican Republic where he was training as part of a Caribbean showcase Either way if true, Rob Gale and Valour have a great addition coming their way, I like that their midfield is looking full of young promise, talent and potential; the idea is to kickstart a lot of careers Sacramento (23), Muenkat (20), Carreiro (23 - Draft Pick), Gutierrez (21 - Rumoured) and possibly now Galvis would love to see Keven Aleman and Kianz Froese in CPL Hope that after Year 1, players are fully convinced and decide to come back to play professionally here

    Canadian Dual Nationals

    For CM definitely Arfield and Osorio are in the starting XI, then Teibert CDM right now is Hutchinson until he retires then Piette, then Kaye I'd confidently put Eustaquio in the mix, and in the 18 Must say he would a great addition; we already have depth in the area and can play both. The more competition the better plus it reinforces the idea of getting younger and preparing for 2026 Atiba (35) is retiring this year and Scott (30) our current captain will make it to 2022 and lead us in this current cycle Piette (24), Osorio and Teibert (Both 26) have that perfect balance of mid age experience, being in the prime of their careers MAK who's also in that mid age group has been excellent, hasn't had a whole lot of caps for the NT but when healthy and from what I saw in 2018 with LAFC wow, watch out! Stephen is Twenty-Two and has so much projection Either way personally I feel good about our Central Midfield

    Will the CPL have a Chivas?

    I do hope at least one club in the CPL does only sign and field Canadian players

    NCAA Canadians 2018

    Very impressive that 4 Canadians were selected in the Super Draft, now the real question is how many of them will crack the team and earn a contract in pre-season? Dayne stclair, Tajon Buchanan, Kamal Miller and Callum Montgomery now have the ability to play professional soccer whether or not it works out for them in MLS CPL is a viable option and that way they won't get lost in the USL or lower leagues in Europe Not sure why Alex Comsia wasn't picked, would love to see him with Pacific FC this year

    Was wondering the exact same thing, guess we won't have to wait long since the WNT plays a friendly vs Norway in Spain (in) 5 days From the practices they've had already seen what the training gear will look like which is pretty standard Looking forward to hearing when they go on sale

    100% agree, especially considering how much canadian content they've played/given minutes to We all want to see them in the CPL, i do hope OSEG finally makes that decision now that they have their backs against the wall

    I know some of you couldn't care less about the Fury but i'm not one of them, yes their decision to play in the USL for 2019 was dissapointing and CONCACAF Did the right thing here i just hope they can join CPL in time or 2020.

    Ottawa CPL Club

    I think it might take a last minute miracle for Ottawa to Join CPL for the 2019 season although not impossible! Yes they missed the Got Game Open Trials, The U-Sports Draft and other league announcements as well. But i'm sure the league would want them to come in last minute to help round up the 8 team balanced schedule and ultimately get this over with. It's in the Fury's best interest to not fold and remain playing, the other option is a one year hiatus. Besides agreeing to all terms (Salary Cap, League Structure, Player Rules, Etc Etc) the big one is what happens with staff and players? Do you have to cut them and re-negogiate with them out of scratch? The ownership (Financials), Stadium, and Fanbase is all there, just need to sit down with Clanachan and Beirne face to face and agree once in for all Easiest thing here would be to get that Macron Jersey designed than 2 months then re-plan for Preseason

    Calgary FC launch/2019 offseason thread

    This was expected but nonetheless really good in the sense that TWJR will have a foundation to build on and an advantage in terms of roster building with all the best foothills players making the jump! Realistically the PDL (Now called League Two) is the best U23 League in North America and the fact that they won it all with a majority canadian roster is very impressive, these players fit into the ''up and coming pool'' the CPL wants. Who else should we expect Wheeldon Jr to sign from the Foothills? Nico Pasquotti and Jordan Haynes are safe bets (7th and 8th player) With Moses danto and Ali Musse going to Winnipeg (Valour FC) and Bruno Zebie, Jackson Farmer and Ajeej Sarkaria going to FC Edmonton There's Nathan Ingham but he left mid season to go sign with Pittsburg Riverhounds of the USL and is York Region Native (Newmarket) - {York 9} plus Carducci will be the No1 GK That's the best 14 players i can think of, unless you add Joel Waterman which the Cavalry drafted in the U-Sports Draft and maybe Kyle Jones who was up there in number of appearances

    Right!? They were supposed to finalize roster rules and reveal them this month, I wonder what’s taking so long for the league to get it done The order doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. First signings then this
