CPL Best XI

Recommended Posts

We haven’t really had a good best XI talk yet.  In the Borges thread there is a question of who could move to a higher league.  Let’s break down a best XI (4-3-3)

Carducci

Grant.     Zator. Gasparoto. Langawa.

                     Adekubge.   

              Bekker   Carmargo. 

Borges.                               Petrasso 

                     Campbell

Telfer really isn’t a DM though- he’s a winger

Borges doesn’t play AM, he’s a straight winger as well.

I think Petrasso is the next best winger in the league besides Borges.  Look at his goal and assists plus he’s been injured.

So your team needs 2 CM types because there’s so many good wingers in the league.

Borges has played centrally before, and I couldn't leave out Pasquotti. So I opted for that.

Louis Beland-Goyette needs to be in there as a defensive mid. He has been outstanding for Valour.

Not as good as Adekugbe though.  I think he’s the best CM/DM in the league.  He’s very very good.

I don’t think he’s played a minute at CM this year though.  He’s been used as a winger and once (not very well) as a striker.

I suppose we all have a bias towards the players we watch most often. This would have to be settled by neutral observers.

I’m actually a Forge fan.  I’ve watched every game and when we played Calgary it was so obvious how good Adekugbe was. He was able to dominate our midfield.  

Calgary was the only team that could do that in more than 1 match against us and I’ve always had the impression ever since that Adekugbe is a top CM

Porter----------------------Telfer-------------------Gattas

Aparicio-----Murofushi

Di Chiara

Abzi--------------------------------------------------------------------Doner

------------------Gogarty---Gasparotto--Springer----------------

Ingham

obvious fanboy sarcasm

I think this is close. I also think that Pasquotti has been excellent, he has a high degree of presence on the pitch when he plays.

I am not sure about Chung. He's a good player, but Pacific is no a solid team defensively, and that has to be on him as well.

I saw HFX more earlier in the summer, so have not seen Langwa lately. Cannot judge Samuel either, I guess I don't watch backs that much, at least not on tv (live I do).

I was struggling at the back admittedly. Zator was a shoe-in. I am not a big Abzi fan so Langwa had to be the one. Samuel has been decent, but not sure who else to include. I do rate Chung though, he's been an unsung hero for Pacific I think.
