CMNT fans: we have no depth at CB   Also CMNT fans: we don’t need this CB for depth.   

Unattached FC is back in business!

In my case it was an ACL repair after I blew it out entirely, followed by 2 meniscus tears and repairs. I can't imagine tearing my ACL twice. Sends shivers down my spine.

Ugh +1

I’m so much more cautious post-ACL and every part of me agrees that this is the right way to be. I also can’t imagine the mental tension of knowing you need to push it for professional reasons and take risks, and your body and subconscious telling you to back off.

I don't get all the negativity. Wouldn't you think JH and co. know about his present condition (health and club)? He comes to camp and we'll see what happens. If he doesn't make the team, he doesn't make the team. It's not that we have so many options that he's taking someone else's place. I for one am happy about this move even if it should of happened years ago.

This is my reaction as well. Also helps to have some Veteran CBs “playing” (or played in this case lol) at a decent level available for our March/June camps as some of our younger CBs can be released for Olympic Qualifying/Gold Cup

With the amount of matches between WCQ/Gold Cup/Olympic Qualifiers all coming up, at the very least he’ll add to our squad depth. If having him on the bench for our WCQ team frees up someone like Cornelius or Miller for the Olympic Qualifiers, it’s already a big positive. And if he can stay healthy and get in form he could legitimately be a top CB for us.

It's very similar to the Vitoria situation and everyone is fine with him. Granted he wasn't as badly injured. He was pretty much looking like being on the scrap heap at the time of committing though. 

If he gets fit we have a huge addition. Either way he potentially adds some significant experience to share to younger players.

Canada is a great opportunity for him and he’s gonna allow Canada to push down young/inexperienced CBs to the gold cup team/Olympic team/ Canada B/C teams. That’s great because they are gonna get great game experience without that crazy pressure of WQC.

That’s contingent on him finding a club and playing regularly in the next month, which is highly unlikely.

Question:

Vitoria or Ferreira? Whose switch generated more negativity?

Ferreira for sure. Vitoria was a prick but when he came on we were just coming off WCQ where we used Straith and Jakovic at CB. He was also coming off a decent season in MLS and attached to Benfica. 
 

Ferreira has turned us down for an abnormally long time and is now coming in when our situation at CB isn’t as bad and he’s just been let go from a relegation candidate in Portugal. 

Vitoria 2016 > Ferreira 2021

As I said before - it’s a farce the attention this has received. Nowhere near the other announcements in recent years, or months even.

Vitoria played an U20 world cup here in his home country, for another team.  After he joined us, memories of that slap in the face came roaring back for more than a few of us.

Honestly, I don’t (and didn’t) have any negativity towards them.  I really didn’t give a shit about either until the committed.  Don’t want to play for Canada?  Cool.  Fuck off then. 
 

When they sign up it is a different story.  Welcome to the team.  Do your best and see where you fit.   
 

I reserve my true dislike for the whores and Begovic’s of the world.
