Inescapably Canadian Power Rankings: MLS Week 8/USL Week 6

2

Fresno FC, the USL expansion side that’s affiliated with the Vancouver Whitecaps, played twice this week. It drew both of its games.

But, in terms of “most ironic game of the week involving a Canadian player,” let’s focus on last Wednesday’s 2-2 draw between Fresno and Tulsa. As Fresno is a U.S.-based team, it has no obligation to play Canadian players, even though the club is affiliated with a Canadian MLS side. So, in Wednesday’s game, not one Canadian appeared for Fresno. But, and this is the best part of the story, a player from the Vancouver area scored in that game — for Tulsa, that is. Paris Gee, who played for Simon Fraser University, scored in the 55th minute.

As well, Canadian Jordan Dover also found the net for the Pittsburgh Riverhounds this past week.

Over in MLS, Toronto FC’s plan to start as many reserves as possible in Saturday’s 5-1 loss in Houston has swelled the Canadian minutes-played section. TFC’s plan has been to play a lot of TFCII players for MLS matches so the first team can get as much prep time as needed for CONCACAF Champions League action. And that’s  been a big reason why the number of Canadians who have played in MLS so far in 2018 has been boosted to a fairly healthy… 24.

 

Here are the rankings after the eighth week of MLS play/sixth week of USL action:

    Darn shame Osorio hit the crossbar in the shootout but I too am looking forward for his return. Great run and golden boot for him for the CCL.

    Opta Index Week 8 – 2018

    Chapman +526
    Fraser +354
    Johnson +168
    Piette +140
    Jackovic +132
    Kaye +126
    Hamilton +121
    Ricketts +107
    Dunn-Johnson +90
    Petrasso +92
    Davies +72
    Akindele +48
    Daniels +33
    Teibert +6
    Telfer -53
    de Jong -124

    Good showing by Chapman & Fraser despite being on the wrong side of a 5-1 drubbing. Of interest to me is that TFC are saving Osorio for CCL action. He is the most consistent performer so far with all 3 of his MLS games being over 400 so he’s definitely first team material. I look forward to him returning to MLS action to see if he can keep it going.
