He sure can and as I mentioned earlier I think Borges is a really good player, I hope he plays for our Olympic team and really shows what he can do in international football, at this point I am just much more comfortable having Millar in the squad than taking a chance on an unknown! This is a huge match for us obviously, I don't think it's a time for experimentation with the squad, if things don't work out we will have several matches vs minnows in the long road of trying to qualify for the hex and that would probably be a better time to bring in some new faces!

I suspect that Borges will get called into the January camp to be honest.  A call up tomorrow would surprise me but not 100% stun me.  

He is in top form and if you needed an away stunner with 10 minutes left in a game against tired legs who is more likely right now to get you a key foul call, pass or sneaky goal?

So where should I place the CPL . I should use data that excludes the CPL? Got it

CPL placement at this point still has to be pulled out of someone’s ass. I just meant to help you smooth out the rest of your list.

I would assume he replaces Didic which is fine.

I am hoping that either Didic or Carducci makes the squad as well. Not sure how great it looks when one CPL player makes every roster, but never does good enough for a second call

Carducci fine. 3rd string keeper will never see the pitch. I would not feel comfortable having Zator and Didic on the squad. Who on the back four are we leaving off for them? From what I have seen they aren’t ready for a match at this level.

We have a lot of CBs that aren't ready for a match at this level unfortunately

You wish. USL Championship has 35 teams, CPL 7. That alone is a HUGE difference. 

Why would I wish anything? I'm not a CPL employee.

Based on my observation, the level of play is roughly the same between the two leagues. That's what I was talking about, as everyone else who read my comment understood.

Yes the USL has far more teams, but it's such an obvious point I'm not sure why it needs to be stated.

Lame

Wouldn't mind if the squad announcement was held back as late as possible.  It would keep the Americans guessing (a bit) and less time to plan.  The players that are going to Florida already know who they are.  We need to play more mind games with the opposition.

More teams = more competition

More teams also = more ****** teams

The average level of play in CPL is roughly the same as it is in USL Championship. It’s ok if you disagree, but at least use a better argument than “they have more teams.”

I grabbed a room at the Marriott. If anyone wants to split costs on a room for the 14th and 15th, PM me.  

Just as an FYI to folks - plans changed a bit,.  I think me and at least a couple other V's are grabbing a time share and splitting costs.  Someone else has booked it, but I am happy to relay info if folks want to inquire.

It makes you wonder if someone is on the fence on coming or is there a question mark with an injury?

This has been moved to Friday! No squad until then!

Thursday will be crazy busy for the CSA on the #CanWNT side - lots of post-match stuff to put up since they can't stream the game from China + the draw, schedule and host venues for Olympic Qualifiers.

Well it's hard to say at this point since we've only seen 1 game between a USL team and a CPL team, but yes I disagree.
