    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Bayern Pokal cup matchday! I had this day marked as Davies getting his first start day. Let's see if he gets it. Game starts around 2:30 pm ET

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Just putting this here so people understand the hype isnt just coming from hopeful canadian supporters. "Earlier this year, German journalist Christoph Biermann published a book titled Matchplan. In it, Biermann pointed out that Davies was, statistically, the most likely prospect in the world to become a superstar in the mold of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi. The book was a major succes in Germany and put Davies on the map among clubs in the Bundesliga." https://www.prosoccerusa.com/vancouver-whitecaps-fc/alphonso-davies-completes-historic-transfer-to-bayern-munich/

    There's always a winter break in Bundesliga, they wont be playing from end of December till end of January. Davies will get some extra time to prepare and get used to his teammates. I'd expect to see him subbed in for the first few games when they're back, maybe even a start in the Pokal cup come February, if things go well.

    The point I was making is that you cant compare Bayern Munich, whos last biggest $$ signing was Arturo Vidal at 40M back in 2015, and reckless teams like Real Madrid, like you were doing. And no, the "top 8 teams" dont necessarely manage their rosters the same way. He wont go to the reserves. He will be loaned out if he can't make the first team, but he'll get a serious shot as soon as he's available. Bayern always give a real shot to their young players, especially if they actually paid for them instead of just signing them on a free from another Bundesliga team. The old wingers are showing their age, the team aint playing so well, and Kovac likes his young dynamic players.

    CPL new teams speculation

    He had also said he wanted to bring a team to Montreal, Laval or Quebec, when he was at the Montreal GotGame trials, video interview here: https://twitter.com/ItsSoccerHere/status/1052286616398647296 Personally I think the Cepsum makes the most sense in the size and availability of the venue and the emplacement; close to a metro station, on a big university campus in a very multicultural area.

    For Bayern he is a big signing at 16M. Go see how much they usually spend on players. Listen to Kovac, Bayern dont pay 16M for a player to send him to the reserves.
  7. I dont really understand why some have such a strong reaction against our Concacaf U20 squad... There are very important players for the future of our program on that squad and they also need to play at a high level internationally. This squad is a very competitive one, and should be able to hold it's own at the Concacaf U20. Nothing is keeping us from having, say Davies and Ballou, at the U20 WC if we qualify. But personally i'd rather see them all play together against men and the best national teams of concacaf at the Gold Cup, which is a much better prep for our 2022 WC qualifying, imo. I dont think it would be realistic to have them both on the U20 WC squad (23 May - 15 June) AND the Gold Cup squad (15 June - 7 July).

    CPL new teams speculation

    Many people in Mtl are disappointed with the direction IMFC is being taken by the FO, and with the ticket price hike and how they've been treating their supporters, many people dont feel welcome at Stade Saputo anymore. I see an opportunity for a more accessible team to come to Mtl. I know many people who would go to CanPL games here in Mtl if there were some, instead of Stade Saputo which they can hardly afford anymore.

    Great to consistenlty hear good comments on Davies' attitude and professionalism, it's usually what makes the difference between the 'real deal' or not with young hyped players.

    lol, i wanted to check out what people had to say about Davies recently and I fall on a dude trying to mesure his dick, talking like a wingnut, speaking of the irrationalism of others politics. This place sometimes, man.

    Nice, and being from the maritimes, I'll be rooting for you guys.

    I doubt Filosa is doing anything else but speculating. But I do hope IMFC revive their reserve team, having an academy without a reserve team for them to go to once they graduate is just ridiculous.
