Mark-Anthony Kaye

Recommended Posts

I expect that he will take over from Hutch in CM over the course of this Gold Cup. Hutch might start the first game, but I see MAK starting the next, and if he performs well, I could see him play out the rest of the tournament as CM. As someone commented on the MLS site, if he can start potting goals from long range and play even a bit faster, he should be prime for a move to a better league soon.

News reports out of Italy say that LAFC are interested in signing Daniele De Rossi. Doesn't seem to make much sense to me. But if it did come to pass, wonder might impact that might have on Kaye.

Other interested parties are said to be NYCFC and Boca Juniors.

Awww the silly season.  I hear that BIg Soccer is looking at getting Mr Parrot.  Lord Bob, Robert, UT, Grizzly and El hombre are considering all offers and will rule out nothing.

Yeah, I have a couple irons in the fire.  Keep an eye on this space come July 1st.

Terry Dunfield (now with TFC academy) was on MLS' Extra Time podcast talking about Canada's chances.

When MAK came up and they talked about how solid a player he's been, Dunfield said they were "still eating humble pie" about letting him go.

delighted they did let him go...

I was hopeful of Doneil Henry sneaking in.  Definitely one of if not Vancouver's best player this year and a few MLS team of the week honours.    Maybe had he played a few more games he would have snuck in.

 

Well deserved for MAK though.

^ another solid game by the lad. 

He's so good in that RM spot in LAFC's 4-3-3, find he always gives great support and an outlet to his RB as well. 

Hope Herdman plays him there instead of LB in a 4-3-3(most of the Gold Cup) or CDM in a 4-1-4-1(like that 10-15 mins vs Haiti).

I only saw one inaccurate pass, late in the game.  Otherwise, his distribution was stellar.  I really liked how he confidently dribbled out of pressure and then would make a forward pass through the lines.  There was a lot of Hutchinson in his play last night:  torch being passed?

I see him more challenging Osorio than Hucthinson. Eustaquio is more likely to take Hutchinson when he gets healthy again

I've never seen Eustaquio play so I can't comment on his style of play but I really like Kaye's box to box range and tracking back.  Among the many things that were glaring last night was how much more athletic he and Atuesta were compared to Erice and Teibert.  Within their scheme and the players around them, they obviously were able to move the ball more quickly but in any loose ball situations they seemed seemed quicker in getting there.  As I said way back in this thread, those two make a pretty tasty midfield.

Watched/skipped through a lot of the game. I had no idea Kaye could shoot like that from distance, he could have had a few from outside the box. The rebound from his shot also led to the 5th or 6th goal

I see it the exact same as you, not to derail the thread but a Mid 3 of... 

Arfield                        Kaye 

               Eustaquio

I'm speechless dreaming about it honestly, with Oso as a fireplug sub off the bench.

And Piette for Eustaquio if need be. Midfield definitely looking really good!

Does anyone think he mite be attracting some Europe interest ? He won’t be sold cheap so would probably have to be a club with money if he is.

Jeepers, does anyone remember what happened to Larin??  3 good seasons in MLS, then growth completely stalled by going to a bad situation and 2 lost years in Turkey.  Kaye is in his second good year....why dont we just let him win MLS BEST 11, be one of the best on the best MLS team, or win a MLS cup etc before we all start talking about Europe.  Its so hard to get a player into a club spot where he fits, the coaches believe in them and everything just CLICKS.
