They did..after Saturday’s game in Toronto.

And international transfer rule 5.2.1 of the CPL rule book was recently amended: Any and all defector professional players or national team members, are to be first offered to Forge FC for an exclusive 21 day signing window. Any attempt by other CPL teams to sign said players in that window will result in 3 league points docked for each attempt. Said potential transfers will not count toward Forge salary cap either for the rest of the season, and the roster size will be temporarily increased to accommodate, with no penalty toward Forge FC.

So, if my calculations are accurate I have the current CONCACAF standings as:

1-4: Mexico/USA/Costa Rica/Jamaica in some order
5: Honduras - 1357 points
6: El Salvador - 1327 points
7: Canada - 1322 points
8: Curacao - 1320 points
9: Panama - 1316 points
10: Haiti - 1277 points

The loss by El Salvador was huge for Canada as it brings the last hex spot into reach. Honduras with the win over Chile gives them a bit more of a gap.

I see Panama and Curacao have a friendly scheduled against each other for the next window which sucks for us since either one of them gaining points hurts us.

October matches:
Honduras: Trinidad & Tobago (A), Martinique (H) -no points at stake
El Salvador: Montserrat (A), Saint Lucia (A)
Canada: USA (H)
Curacao: Panama (A)(friendly), Costa Rica (A)
Panama: Curacao (H)(friendly), Mexico (A)
Haiti: Costa Rica (H)

USA at home will be huge! All I ask of Herdman is to PLEASE not start any of Larin, Wotherspoon, or Johnson that game. We need our best 11 to get a result.

Two away games for El Salvador will not be easy. I dont care how lowly ranked the teams are.

Larin has completely lost his finish. Old Larin would have had 2 goals on the night. He looks just done.

In the Champions League, Borjan is starting for Red Star today, with Davies on the bench of Bayern. Would be neat to see them head to head, but I'm thinking it will only happen if Bayern can't break through and need a late push, or if the game is put to bed and Bayern start giving the bench some chances. Or injury, of course.

Has there been a time where two Canadian players have been on the same pitch in Champions League before?

^ In the end, it was not to be. Davies never got on the pitch, and Borjan was busy and conceded 3. Could've been much, much worse too.

Big game coming up!

Canada vs USA in Toronto on Tuesday. While this is not technically a World Cup Qualifier, the result will have a huge impact on our world cup qualifying campaign. The last time Canada and USA played a game this leanjngful against each other was more than 20 years ago.

My many years of being a hard core Canadian supporter have conditioned me to failure, then optimism followed by disappointment, yet I'm feeling pretty hyped for this one considering the quality in our current side and also the yanks being in a period of relative decline. Hope our boys can play like they're capable of playing and get the W!

You are correct. Give OneSoccer a try! If you sign up for the free trial now, you'll still have it when Cavalry FC are playing in the CPL finals (oct 26 and Nov 2)!
