Who Will Be The Best Player This Season?

Recommended Posts

I'm really keen on Adjei and Hoyle.

I've heard the latter is underrated and could put up a good fight for the golden boot. The former had good numbers in Sweden (albeit a lower division). Those 2 will be an interesting watch.

Pacific probably has the strongest offense, and Haber seems to be the centre piece. 

Makes sense to me!

Some good votes for Bekker.

How did Ferguson get into this conversation?  The list of players I'd have ahead of him in this league is pretty long.

Ferguson was kind of a wild guess... ?

It's an interesting argument with Haber.  Clearly he's very high quality for this league, but has he ever had a huge goal-scoring season?  He always struck me as a winger in a target striker's body, with an ability to score in a variety of ways but not really a poacher's instinct.

He should be great this season but I think there are purer goalscorers I'd favour for Golden Boot.

I voted Bekker because voting Other is chicken **** 

Basically, if a team has a midfield general and the play moves through him successfully in transition, he'll be the "best" player. Unless there is one striker who tears things up. I am a Pacific fan but do not really think that Haber will do that. I'd expect 10-12 goals out of him,, but any more would be a gift. 

So someone like Bekker, assuming Forge are winning. And that there is no striker on course for 20+ goals and his team winning.

I think the O/U on golden boot is probably 14-15 goals.

There will be about 3 guys who have over 10 goals I think.  

I think Haber should be one of those 3 guys and will get 12-14 in 28 games.

Maybe someone else emerges but he’s the striker with the most pedigree.

I predict higher scoring games to begin as teams aren't 100% cohesive yet. Hoyle 17 goals, book it. 

Those in season form will have an edge... without a doubt. Voted Hoyle as well

The “best” player will be a U23 and one that ends up being sold for a decent fee at the end of season one to the MLS or equivalent league. None of the above have that potential but there are a number of younger players spread across all clubs that just might.

I admit that I have not spent time looking at the Hoyle signing, so I'm curious: how does he play? And will Valour play in a way that will optimise having him? Really would like to know your opinions.

Bekker could grab a free kick or two against some poorly organized walls and make some highlight reels early on

As someone who has seen Luis Perea for a couple years at USMP, I'd say he's the favourite for the golden boot.

I'll take your word for it, and I like it!
