    Liam played the last 14 mins for FC Basel in a 3-3 preseason friendly vs Aarau FC. Good to get a run out with this new team and ets some vital preseason mins only been there 3 days… Had a few good dribbles and played a key pass that resulted in the pen for the 3rd goal…

    I’d like to see something like this: Larin—-Cav—-Tajon Kaye—Eustaquio—Osorio Laryea—Kennedy—Victoria—Johnston ————crepeau————- You have Larin that likes to cut in / play between the lines on the left and Laryea who will be hungry to get forward on the overlap. Tajon stays more in the channel or is used with a quick switch of play to isolate the opposing fullback. Johnston provides cover and is stay-at-home in most circumstances. Cav as the reference point up top. Swap Cav for Akinola and Pasher for one of the other forwards at 65. Tell everyone to go hard and keep hammering away at the opposition. Also would like to see us play with some midfield setups to find the group that has the best chemistry. Maybe Paton can surprise as a late game sub, although that probably means a formation change.

    Bundesliga 2 starts in 2 weeks. They probably applied pressure on Scott and JH to have him stay. Canada Soccer is in the right legally to have him released and I would be outraged if the Gold Cup was all we had. But it isn’t so I’m not overly upset as long as there is a wink wink nod nod that we have no issues when WC Qualifying comes. The pragmatic approach is to pick your battles.

    If he wasn't going to be released why was he listed on the final roster?

    This is dumb for Herdman to say. You always want to have a full roster at your disposal at a tournament. Fuck just call up 2 MLS based guys.

  11. Yes, we all would have preferred he be injured training for Bayern instead. Come on now. As was stated by the pro-Davies Gold Cup camp this could have happened anywhere any time. This has nothing to do with him being called to this tournament. This isn’t a time to feel vindicated if you didn’t want him called. This doesn’t prove you’re right ... he was injured in training. Bayern don’t have a magical staff to prevent that.

    As long as he's getting starts in the Greek Top Flight, I can settle for a lower team. This guy needs to play! He will still get to play against quality. (Olympicakos etc..)

    I don't see him going back to Vancouver. If he plays well he'll stay in Europe. If he doesn't, it will prove MDS right and they won't want him back. But either way, I think his time in Vancouver is done.

    There are no words for how stupid this post is. Yes, let’s get our 13 MLS players back ASAP. Let’s limit our experience and go into the octo with our best experience being a game against USA B. It’s what adults would do. Like perennial champions Mexico.

    Best scenario would be to not make it out of the group and get these players back to their clubs asap. If we cap a few guys or give those out of club minutes and exposure, great. Limit the damage and let's get back to acting like adults again, Mr Herdman. BTW, no club is required to release a player in these conditions, it's ridiculous some are saying this or that club would be jerks not to.

    It does feel like it doesn’t it? He’s confident as ever right now and now the door is open for him. He needs to grab this. I saw someone post on Twitter that Buchanan plays like he believes he’s the best player in MLS ... that’s what we need.

    Wait isnt MrK the guy always harping about CSA sucks because we never play, we need more games against high profile teams, why dont we play Brazil and France etc ad nauseum?? But its stupid to get most of the national team together for a camp, a game against the USA and if we advance prob a game against Cosa rica or Jamaica and maybe Mexico in semis etc etc??

  30. You play football to win trophies. A grand total of 8 countries have won the World Cup, we probably are not going to be the 9th or 10th. Let's win this Cup. Winning breeds winning if nothing else.

    I never thought it made much sense for Kennedy to be at the gold cup regardless. He is not a locked in started at his club and being there for the preseason can make a big difference. Personally I would rather he stay at his club and solidify his position and be available for WCQ.

    Maybe it’s just me here, but this whole thing with Davies , Kennedy and maybe others kinda feels like amateur hour here. herdman saying maybe he won’t replace Davies ? Kennedy’s team not wanting him to go ? It’s a little bit of a Gong Show

    Wtf? They have one international player and decide last minute he can’t come to a continental competition ... even though the biggest club in the country can release a player.

  37. Fraser Aird is such a frustrating player. He has so much ability and at times looks a cut above, but he’s just so inconsistent. A different player one game to the next, but again today he looked solid.

    You are always the least reasonable poster on this forum. Which probably explains a lot of your terrible covid/vaccination takes. Besides I'm not taking the time to analyze the 16 players that were left off. I actually don't care that much. But my guess is a number of them are Euro based and are now in pre-season with their clubs. It would be insane to call up a player like that with little warning and expect them to drop everything they are doing and fly to North America to spend a few weeks. Guatemala is sending mostly domestic players and are already situated on the same continent. And even they had to send a weakened squad at that.

    If this confederation is going to grow then the Gold Cup needs to be taken seriously if not then what’s the purpose of it tell me ? Could you imagine the Euros having half ass national teams show up because players don’t want to risk injury for upcoming World Cup qualifiers or the risk of getting injured and missing games with their club teams. Either this thing is taken seriously or just scrap the tournament.

    Yeah. He’s a player for the national team that needs to be replaced now. What do you want us to do, send him flowers to his hospital bed? The guy sprained his ankle, he’ll be fine. Show goes on without him.

    For me this changes our chances of making the semis or finals but it doesn’t impact our WCQ prep. We know what Davies offers us so this will be a chance for others to stake a claim and for us to work on team cohesion and familiarity. The defence will still get a chance to gel, we will still work on tactics and formation, and 9 of our probable WQQ starting 11 will continue to develop the familiarity that we will need in September. Maybe I am just trying to rationalize the situation to avoid rocking back and forth in the fetal position but the show must go on.

    I for one am definitely more pumped about the Gold Cup than Euros and the Copa America. In years past I would treat the Euros like the World Cup and watch every minute of every game without fail, and I would plan my day around it. Now I couldn't be fussed if I miss a game. Actually, I have missed more than I have seen, and I can probably count on 1 hand how many games I have watched from beginning to end. Usually it's 30 minutes here, 20 minutes there, but then something more important comes up that grabs my attention. After all, there is no dog in the fight for me. Gold Cup will be completely different. I am going to watch every Canada game religiously, and I will be hard pressed to miss any of the other matches, especially the ones in our group. So needless to say, I absolutely support us bringing a strong team so we can win this thing. I am not mad at players like David, Hutchinson and Arfield for staying out to club prep, it's fine. The core of the team is there and it gives others a chance to step up. It's all good!

    That “stupid, useless tournament” is our Confederation championship. It may not be the Euros but it will only gain in stature by teams taking it seriously and sending strong squads - like we are doing. As for us taking a strong team, we need to do it to ensure we are completely in sync for the WCQ. Playing in the GC isn’t going to detract from our WCQ campaign - it is a key piece of it. We need to get 2 wins from our first 3 games to be avoid being in a lot of trouble right away. Prep through GC games is the best way to do that with momentum.

    The Americans didn't underrate Jonathan David. They tried to get him into a youth camp but he turned them down. It's also hard to say that they underrated Akinola considering he was on their youth teams for years and got a senior cap seven months ago.
