    • That's definitely the kind of thing that endears an attacking player to his teammates. It'd be impossible to watch that and not give the man your respect and trust on the pitch.
    • Class of 2002. Forward/ left-sided winger.  Another Whitecaps youth player on his way to Atletico Ottawa apparently:  https://northerntribune.ca/atletico-ottawa-matteo-de-brienne-training/  
    • All 26 teams are there. Toronto arrived today before Vancouver did.

    • Personally, against top sides in Concacaf like Mexico and the US (especially away), I would play 3 up front with Davies David and one of Tabla, Millar or Hoilett. If either Tabla or Miller can break out in the next year or two, that would give you an incredibly fast front 3 which would be devastating on the counter; then I would play a 3 in midfield of Arfield or Osorio (as a 10) with Eustaquio and Kaye behind.  I think that midfield would be good at closing down the attack but also good a countering quickly.  We could then play a Miller at LB for defensive purposes. For the rest of Concacaf, I would play Cavallini or Larin up front depending who is on form, with Hoilett and Tabla/Millar on the wings, drop David to 10, and Davies to LB to give him more space; and play in the midfield behind David 2 of Arfield, Kaye, Osorio and Eustaquio depending on your needs given the opponent. Personally, I think Piette now drops to the bench based on the midfield we have although I could see him coming in to play beside Eustaquio if we are playing an opponent who is similar strength to us but has an effective number 10 in the middle who we would almost want Piette to man mark out of the match.  
    • I think the most impressive thing about this track back was (1) when the ball was lost in the box and the Anderlecht player broke, David instantly set off in a sprint to get back which is impressive for an attacker as quite often their inclination is to hesitate as they are always hoping for another chance in the box; and (2) after running the initial 60m at a sprint, he had enough in the tank to actually accelerate to get to the ball first when the attacker had pushed it past the last attacker.  Both of these are impressive in my view and the first demonstrates an innate intelligence in the game that is almost impossible to teach as in a split second he recognised the danger where if he hesitated in the box he would never have been able (even with his speed) to recover.
    • great move and exactly the type of move that hopefully can become common between the 3 MLS sides and the CPL.  He and the CB young kid at the Impact (Ferdinand?) I am really hoping emerge in the next year or two as we really could use some top quality CB prospects as that is our weakest position by far.  Maybe a stretch to hope one of them is ready for the World Cup at the end of 2022 (or end of 2023) should we make it but stranger things have happened (Davies and David for instance).
