Anthony Jackson-Hamel

What a weird player he is. Had a good stretch where it looked like he was going to be the man for the Impact, and then simply didn't. Don't know if it was Garde or just his own attitude but it's disappointing seeing how ineffective he's become at the team. Granted none of their strikers impress at all these days.

Stretchered off today. Hopefully he’s alright

Stretchered all the way to the locker room, holding his left knee. 

Looks like he tore something, for him not able to limp to the changerroom. 

Wishing a speedy recovery.

I feel for this guy. Long underappreciated in his home province, imo, nearly got a transfer to another club, fell through, now unlikely to have another crack at this level for a while.

I was sad to see him go out like that. Hopefully it is not an ACL. 

If I recall correctly, he's scored 4 times in all competitions and this was his 17th game. A slight rebound from a disappointing 2018. I hope his 2019 is not finished because of this injury.

Wish him the best this year. Really think he offers something different and has a hell of a strike on him. The last couple of years has been nothing short of a disaster for his career. Actually thats a bit dramatic in terms of the likes of Boakai/Tablas falls but I am not taking it back. 

He has a hell of a chance to reignite his career and improve under one of the greatest strikers of all time. Hopefully the AJH show is back on track.

Looks like Jackson-Hamel wanted to go to Camp Poutine but then got cut due to ....(injury? not recovering quickly enough? got cut for another player?)

Did anybody listen to the whole thing on 98.5FM?

 

Haven't listened, but Impact didn't want him to play matches from what was said 2-3 weeks ago by Renard ( Technical Director)

I remember not too long ago he was our 3rd best striker.

I'll see your Tabla/Boakai and raise you a Gyaki.  And before you re-raise me, be warned I have a Jaimie Peters up my sleeve.

Hey man, Gyaki single-handedly qualified us for a U20 World Cup.  More than any of the others have done.

Exactly....from such great heights.....such a fall!!  Although coaching U sports in nothing to sneeze at, maybe we'll see him coaching in CPL...then it will be a redemption story.

With all due respect I think he is limited in terms of his ability on the ball. He’s kind of like Tosaint Ricketts in that way, but even Tos is better with the ball at his feet. He’s good at finishing though, so if he gets service he can put the ball in the net.

I hope he has a good season. If he can score +5 MLS goals I think that qualifies. The year he scored 9 was a bit of an anomaly, but he should be getting more than 2 a year if he can stay fit.

As for the national team, I think he has his work cut out from him, but a return is not impossible if he can score goals this year.

All the best to him!
