So far, unsurprisingly, Davies and David have been the best. MAK, Arfield, Hutchinson OK. Piette has been at the centre of everything so he won't be perfect but he's made a couple mistakes. Hoillet and Osorio have been off but they've been involved. Godinho's positioning is a tad suspect. Seen enough good stuff to still be optimistic.

Osorio off?  I thought he was very good.  Hoilett not great but he's almost always going to start.  I suspect one or both off in the 2nd half anyways.

Really struggling really? Come on he is the new fall guy to **** on this team, micro analyzing every touch he makes , please!

I’m not making him the fall guy, we are still up 1-0.

He did struggle in the first half. But it’s the first half of the first game, hopefully he improves in the second half. If not ZBG will be in there.

Relax and enjoy the game.

I think he's struggling.  Out of position and almost own goal first few minutes.  Poor back pass to Borjan.  Beat down the line that almost led to a goal.  Out of position on another player which I forget.

3 or 4 errors that led to chances.  With that being said, the same can be said for Kaye and even the CB's.

Osorio has been good with his linking play so I'm not sure what people are expecting here.  Hoillet is more likely to be given the hook.

Godinho just looks like a guy who hasn't seen much game time lately. At times he's made some great runs going forward and cleared the ball beautifully off a defensive corner... at other times he could have done much better. 

Anyways let's go boys, end of day 1-0, let's put the pedal down.

When we outlet through Osorio he tends to slow our attack down because he doesn't play balls into space. He will make good short passes but I find, like at TFC, he hasn't been good at "sending" guys.

It's almost like they aren't used to playing together... The good news is that should come together by the end of the group stage. 

Yeah, that first half defensive display is a pretty effective counter argument to the idea that not playing friendlies is okay.

Jonathan David stock continues to rise.

Gent should send the CSA a thank you gift after this tourny ;).

Wow clinical finish. 

Good job David!

Piette haters go quiet after that amazing ball.

Then he comes up with another dumb give-away--he and Kaye, with Godinho, are way off pace and slow with the ball, flat footed and careless: I have been unfairly and madly screaming at stupid MLS for the way the two former are playing, for me not good enough. 

I cut Cornelius some slack because of his age and being the only natural defender of the bunch. Osorio has been fine.

I also don't really like David as CF, but if there was ever a guy who "just needs a couple chances"...  what a composed, clinical finisher!

If he plays his cards right, he can be this generation's Ali Gerba.

On another note, Hoilett has looked pretty off.

 

Ha, I won't even edit that.  He scored.  Suck it, dyslexic nam
