Most impressive players so far

Recommended Posts

Figured it was worth starting a thread about this. Haven't watched many other teams but for Forge, Tristan Borges has stood out to me as a really impressive player. Curious to hear takes from fans of other teams as to which players have stood out so I can keep an eye out for them.

Really like Borges, could see him being the first player sold. Zator has been the best defender in the league imo so far. He’s a unit.

I would agree with those nominated above.  Borges and Zator have been really impressive.  I have also been very impressed with Zoom Langwa.

Exactly my picks. 

Verhoeven started strong but like the rest of Pacific have dipped. 

Waterman, wheeldon and schaale have also impressed me. Novak has taken the bull by the horns too.

I've only really watched Wanderers matches in detail, so can only say with certainty that Schaale and Langwa have been excellent, and N'sa and Bona have been nice surprises. Thought Borges has been tricky for Forge, and Bustos and Musse have been solid for Valour.

I'm going the throw #7 Dylan Sacramento into the mix for Valour. Has been doing a ton of good work in the middle of the park: ball winning, breaking up attacks, and setting up attacks for Valour. Constantly in the thick of it and getting stuck in.

My second choice for Valour is #6 Martin Arguiñarena. Very polished and not only by far Valour's best defender but also does a very good job of moving the ball forward and getting into attacking wide positions himself.

I know York hasn't looked great, but Murofushi has been consistently solid, tidy passing, and even managed well defensively today with a number of blocks and tackles. 

Estevez-tsai needs to be more consistent but he's shown glimmers of creativity and neat passing, including today's lead up to the adjei miss.

 

Gattas, we still haven't seen enough of but he was massive today vs Pacific

Agreed. I also think Gasparotto deserves some props, he’s a beast at CB.

I think Giuliano Frano and Elijah Adekugbe have both been quietly doing a great job for Forge and Cavalry. Tristan Borges is the most impressive for me though. Don't think he'll be in CPL for long

After watching most of Cavalry /Eddies, I'll second the nomination of Connor James.  And I'll add my Valour pick - Ali Musse.

So that is one (surprisingly) impressive player from each team for me so far in this young season:

Pacific - Chung

Cavalry - Zator

FCE - James

Valour - Musse

Forge - Borges

York9 - Ingham

HFX - Langwa

Jose Hernandez has been one of our most dangerous players going forward so far. He's got himself a goal and an assist so far, but he's really deserved more. He's always getting in behind the defense and playing dangerous balls into the area. You can see why Vancouver didn't want to lose him.

From my team, Langwa and N'sa have been the unexpected standouts. Wanderers have a solid defense I think. 

Other teams players that I've noticed have been Thomas and Borges on Forge and Chung for Pacfic. Telfer has impressed as well but that doesn't surprise me.
