I watched the second half vs Yorke on CBC this morning.From what I saw, reasonably entertaining. Reasonably good footy, about what you'd expect for the types of players they have signed. There is a clear difference in play between CPL and MLS in a lot of ways. From what I saw in CPL, it's definitely ball's out fast. Guys are playing with a hunger you don't see in MLS. I still love the fact that maybe 70-80 more Canadians have a job now playing professional footy when they otherwise may not be. This is exactly what we needed. I just hope it survives this first couple of seasons of painful growth and catches some following.
Yes, the pace of the game is decent but the touches are terrible and there is little build up play. It is as you said "balls out fast" but lacking some real quality and composure. Verhoven(spelling?) had a good game. My first time seeing Baldissimo play and I recall you saying that maybe the Caps should give him a chance...hell no. Maybe the kid had a poor game but no way is he near Whitecaps level imo. Telfer for Yorke was the best player on the pitch by a mile and you can tell why TFC calls him up. I hope the league survives the first couple of seasons too but the emptiness in the stands was glaring.
