Canadian Premier League – Player Ratings

After the first week of action in the 2022 Canadian Premier League season, we officially launched our brand new Player Evaluation System. The details of this can be found in this article – Evaluating players based on role continuity, and we have already begun the process of identifying roles for specific players as we progress through the season. Here are how the players of the Canadian Premier League currently rank based on our brand new model, after Week 5.

Canadian Premier League Matchday 5 – Tactical Review

This season in the Canadian Premier League, Rhys Desmond will be bringing you the tactical minutiae behind every single match, team, and moment. Here is our tactical review of the Canadian Premier League’s fifth round of fixtures!

How Cavalry’s staggered shape stunned Edmonton – Match Analysis

The Cavs started the season in a 3-4-2-1 formation, suffering two embarrassing losses to York and Atletico, and a stagnant draw against Forge. After realizing the slow-moving car wasn’t quite motoring the way he wanted it to, even despite the gas pedal being pressed, Wheeldon Jr. was right to identify a new vehicle. Now in a flexible 4-4-2 shape, Cavalry have been utterly dominant in both of their matches since, both in and out of possession. On this particular occasion, they completely stunted Edmonton’s progress going forward, and massively exploited space in exactly the right areas through staggering their personnel across the pitch. Here is a quick tactical analysis of Cavalry’s commanding 3-0 win over FC Edmonton.

Canadian Premier League Matchday 4 – Tactical Review

We may be four matches in now, but the Canadian Premier League continues to show no signs of slowing down, with four goals scored in both of the weekend’s fixtures so far, balancing out a dull midweek affair between Edmonton and Pacific. Ahead of the final two fixtures, here is our ongoing tactical review of Week 4 inside the Canadian Premier League.
