In this episode of the Paul James on Soccer podcast, Paul provides his thoughts on Canada's roster for the team's World Cup qualifying matches against St. Kitts and Nevis, the return of Patrice Bernier to the National Team fold and the recent decision by defender Andre Hainault to turn down a call-up in order to focus on the MLS Playoffs with his club team, the Houston Dynamo. He also discusses Toronto FC's decision to release Demetrius Omphroy and Matt Gold, TFC's apparent move away from NCAA players in favour of developing their own players via their Academy system and why the college system is still a vital mechanism for both the MLS and the players in the league. Paul also provides his pick for which CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal opponent would provide Toronto with the best chance to move to the semi-finals of the competition and explains why TFC should play their home Champions League fixture in March at the Rogers Centre. Lastly, he provides his analysis of Martin Rennie's first weeks on the job as Head Coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps, the Caps decision to re-sign Atiba Harris and the importance of Vancouver retaining the services of Camilo in 2012.
