    Why does James get shit on on this site so much? I don't get it. How many other Canadians are getting starts in the Champions League? And people implying James is "no better no worse" than a CPL player (Zator) and marginal MLS CBs (Cornelius, Jakovic) is absolutely crazy to me. If Zator, Cornelius and Jakovic are just as good as James why aren't they starting against Atalanta in the Champion's League?

    4 Man of the Match performances in 8 games. Some of the big teams are have much more depth and therefore MOM awards more spread across the team but it is still impressive that he has more MOM performances than anyone else in the league.

    It's not a question of being triggered. You made a dumb comment, and people are calling you out on it. If you don't see and understand that, you're just proving that you actually are dumb and it's not just the one comment. Look around, we're Canadian soccer fans here, and most, including myself would rather another Canadian team win over a US team. Get it? Canadian soccer. We're not here to degrade or troll. If you still don't get it, think of the word "supporters", and try to figure out what that means. If you still don't get it, find yourself a TFC only forum. You do realize.

    The game ended 1-1 and he was playing center back against Atalanta a team that when they are on can score for fun, without watching the game the fact he was a starting center back in that game and played the whole game and it ends 1-1 away from home in Bergamo in the bloody Champions League is a big win for him and the Canadian national team . He plays a position where guys playing in the CPL God bless that League , and guys coming off the bench in the MLS are being considered as possible starters at that position for the Canadian national team , just stepping on to the field today vaults him

  10. Yann Fillion makes the step up in Finland from the Ykkönen (second tier) with Ekenäs up to the Veikkausliiga (first tier) with newly-promoted side Oulu for 2021 - believe it's also a club option for 2022. Ottawa-born keeper, put in quite a few games with EIF, in a 1A/1B situation with their second keeper Jiri Koski. Across the pair, it was enough to take the team up to 4th place in the Ykkönen in 2020. Will be interesting to see the keeper duel at Oulu next season (Finnish season starts back up in April, COVID-pending). From a Finnish friend: "Expectations: Backup

They should have had a straight red card and we hit the bar blah, blah, blah, that was an embarrassing way to lose a match to an inferior side, Forge were not very good all match, the Haitians were worse, the several week lay off took it's toll because Forge could not string many passes together, they were out of sync!

    Despite some of the negative comments, I really thought he did good and at the end of the day, what matters is what the club thinks of him... This looks very good for him and might win him some more minutes. This also looks great for Canada because I don't recall the last CB we had in Champions League against that quality of a club and doing well. If you don't think that it will make him a contender to start for Canada you're kidding yourself. No, Henry shouldn't start above him. Vitoria is the other guy playing at the position at the highest level among

  18. Singapore [SPL] Jordan Webb (Tampines Rovers) saw the second 45' in a 1-1 draw against Lion City. The single point means Tampines punch a ticket for the 2021 AFC Champions League group stages. [SPL] Danial Scott Crichton (Young Lions) saw the full 90' in a 2-1 loss to Geylang International. Norway [ELT] Simon Thomas (Sarpsborg 08) served as the backup for Sarpsborg, with the club finding an 85th-minute equaliser to take a point off Kristiansund who started the day in 5th. The point moves S08 up to 12th, 6 points clear of the relegation playoff spot and 9 points clear

Felt bummed out last night- feel worse this morning Game was for the taking- chances missed ( 3rd minute put a foot on the crossed ball and it is in, cross bar free kick, Mo had a free header with no one near him, many more Corners than the opponent ) Forge dominated play and were not sucked in by the diving and Concafing of the other team. Referee was very good IMO Missed opportunity is an understatement- Fark

  21. In the first half I was yelling at Henry through my TV because he was playing waaay up the field in a game where to that point Arcahaie had nothing. Why give them a chance for a Hail Mary goal from half when they otherwise seem to pose no threat. If they are getting on the end of a lot of through balls, fine, pinch up to try to take away that threat, but don’t go up there because you have nobody to talk to in your own box. Then he outdid my worst nightmare by just waiting for them to come up and take a goal. He could have put his boot through it. He could have passed to the wide open man that

    I didn’t watch the game. My boxscore analysis is this. Midtjylland Champions League games without James. 4 games, 4 losses, 0 points, with 3,2,2 and 4 goals against in those 4 games. The previous game against Atalanta was 4-0. Midtjylland Champions League games with James. 1 game, 1 point, with 1 goal against (their lowest in any CL game).

    For the past couple years I have felt that James gets criticized so much he’s actually underrated. That being said- he has been working his way up the ranks the last few years. The fact is he started and was rated a 7.2 in Champions League Group Stage. He’s playing for the Danish Champions and playing pretty good as their 3rd CB. So let’s not overrate him or underrate him. He’s been one of our top 4-5 CB for a number of years and he’s in form now. That’s good for me for now.

    I'm not sure if you were referring to me and my earlier post. I say that because you mention 3 center backs that I included in my post that no one else has. If so, perhaps you misinterpreted me. I was asking a rhetorical question and I thought it was clear. Because all of those center backs I mentioned (as you did above) would not stand a chance in todays game vs Atalanta. Either way, I couldn't agree with you more. And I also think Henry gets way to much s**t on this site. If both are healthy and playing regularly, both James & Henry are my starters.

    I’ve always liked James, think he has good potential just needs to work on his decision making. Unfortunately the sporadic and inconsistent playing time hasn’t helped him with this. I think the play obinna was referring to where he allowed the forward to get to the ball first is a prime example of this, caught up between shepherding the ball out or retaining possession caused a bit of a dither and the hesitation let his opponent in Hopefully he can build on this performance, get more minutes and build his confidence and decisivness

  30. Wouldn't be surprised if his head was done after that blunder. Too bad. We knew he has that in his game but looked like he had eliminated those dodgy decisions at the island games. Huge disappointment for Forge but they simply didn't have quality in attack. The amount of sideways and backwards passing was incredible. They simply couldn't do enough and when deliveries came it was generally to the keeper. Ah well. One more chance but this was the golden ticket and they watched it pass them by.

    Bah, dont let it bother you...who cares?? IDoGive AF about CDN players, more so than any one individual CDN team..and I dont think I am the only one, after all this is a Voyaguer site not a TFC fansite eh? I had a CDN flag on my ass long before TFC came around. So supporting team america just gets harder and harder no matter how much they win. So good luck TFC with whatever american journeyman or TAM/GLAM/FLIM FLAM money they pick up in trade for Fraser. Ohhhh I'm going to be fired up for Forge winning in CONCACAF tonight.

  40. I don't have a huge problem with Bamba and Araujo. I think they are also coached to do the things they are doing i.e. cutting inside, taking touches, trying to be the one to make something happen 1v1. I don't necessarily agree with it, but I'm guessing it's not just coincidence. Someone mentioned the play last match where Burak made a run and Araujo took it inside and shot and Burak got mad. I actually liked what Araujo did there, even if he was too far out to reasonably take a shot. Burak's run opened up space, but Burak himself was in a bad position; even if Araujo made a perfect pass then B

    I didn't watch the game so I cannot comment diretcly on this. I am wondering how fellow center backs like Cornelius, Jakovic, Didic, Zator, K Miller would do against the likes of Zapata, Muriel, Illic etc. and a champions league quality team such as Atalanta? Henry has never even seen that type of competition. Perhaps our only center back who has any recent games vs champions league "quality" opponents would be Vitoria when he gets to play Benfica & Porto in Liga Nos. Again, I didn't watch the game, but to only allow 1 goal against vs a high scoring team like Atalanta (still needs
