    Do you know how old Roben & Ribery are? 34 & 35. Bayern is in the hunt for replacements. The other two are 23 & 22. Maybe Bayern wants someone to drive them, or maybe Bayern are not thrilled with one or the other. Third in that rotation sounds great to me.

    Davies can play either wing but left seems to be his best. Two openings and a huge opportunity. Subbed in late a few times so they can see what he brings is the way I see them deciding if he needs B2 time.

    Yeah I follow the Bundesliga quite a bit. I think Pep Guardiola's plan was to phase out Ribery and Robben by replacing them with Douglas Costa and Kingsley Coman, but when Pep left, Ribery and Robben became starters again. Costa transferred out, and I think Coman wants to transfer out too. Gnabry was loaned out this past year, but he's supposedly being counted on for a big role this year.

    A lot of Bayern's fanbase seems to be highly skeptical of their new coach Niko Kovac, with a lot of old Bayern favorites rumored to be leaving. It would be quite a flattering move for Davies and great experience, but I doubt he'd see playing time anytime soon. With that being said, even if he spends an entire season on the bench or in the reserves or gets loaned out, he might still develop more than with the Whitecaps.

    Also a side note on Davies--I doubt he would be allowed to play in the Bundesliga until he's 18. Some rule that the BuLi has where youngsters from abroad need to have been part of the club's academy for a certain number of years to be allowed to play in the BuLi before turning 18. American Josh Sargent joined Werder Bremen in January but wasn't allowed to play until he turned 18, so he'll be making his debut this season.

    Rule doesn't apply to players with EU passports though (I believe that's how Christian Pulisic got around it).

    Alphonso Davies signs with Bayern Munich

    His origin story

    “There’s an Alphonso Davies in every Canadian city” — after uncovering one star player, Free Footie looks to find more

    https://the11.ca/theres-an-alphonso...e-star-player-free-footie-looks-to-find-more/

    Now, Bayern will need to pay some solidarity money to the clubs Davies played for in Edmonton in the couple of years before he left the Alberta capital for Vancouver. By FIFA rules, when an international transfer is reached, Canada Soccer must send Bayern a detailed list of all the clubs Davies has played for since he was 12, and Bayern must ensure those teams get solidarity payments. A lot has been made about deals with American MLS teams and them not passing solidarity payments down to youth clubs. That’s not the case in Canada. So, Edmonton Strikers*, the cheque should be in the mail come January.

    Now, the question. Will Free Footie get a payment? The Edmonton program, founded by Tim Adams, began as an inner-city initiative to give disadvantaged kids — many of them migrants — the chance to play organized soccer free of charge. It was through this program that a kid named Alphonso Davies blossomed. That’s where he started to turn people’s heads — in a program that brought many refugee kids together to play the sport that they loved. In North America, where we hear more and more about pay-to-play academies and the rising costs of enrolling your kids in sport, this grassroots initiative is a refreshing reminder about the reasons we want our kids to play; to build friendships, learn about teamwork, become more well-adjusted.

    Will the CPL allow solidarity payments?

    Because MLS does not.

    I can't help but think that Osorio is the next to go. Unless TFC make him a DP he's gone. He has been the highest performing and most consistent player for them all season. Contract is finished after this season.

    And Kaye gets injured. Crap. He will be out for a while with a broken foot. Damn shame. He was having a breakout season with LAFC.

    Doh! And here I thought it was a typo :) LMAO.

    Yes the "Cavalry" are coming!

    PS. Whoever did up the CPL logo did a total kick ass job of it. That works on so many levels and isn't boring or trying too hard ... It just is cool as it gets.

    When he almost signed with Celtic but paperwork sunk the deal. He'll most likely get his spot back in France

    Well this is a sad day. None of the 3 Canadian MLS teams make the playoffs. Sigh. That will be a huge drop in interest. Here's hoping next year all 3 find their mojo and make the post season.

    It's a setback but I don't think that it will damage them too much
