    Now there is a story that needs telling. Dont leave out any details...his smell, the color oooze he left on the grass when he slithered around. Did he have the outrageous accent in person?

    Nah, personally I've never rated Crepeau, and from Borjan to him it always was and still is a steep dip in quality. Seeing how Vancouver have been playing these past 2 season is it really surprising their keeper would lead in saves? Dayne has potential to play at a higher level than MLS, and the manner in which he has announced himself (in an American franchise nonetheless) out of nowhere is a testament of why he should be Canada's No2 and heir to Borjan.

    pretty sure he already submitted a one time switch. Don't quote me though. But I'm personally not worried about him defecting.

    Before I get too emotionally invested in this guy. I just want to confirm that this guy is 100% only able to play for us? Is there any chance that he can change his mind? If Romania calls him tomorrow and promises him a guaranteed starting position is he able to play for them?

    Crepeau has always been excellent and is an experienced leader within the #CanMNT. He has the trust of his peers, earned over 5 years worth of #CanMNT call ups and even more international experience going back 10 years with our U17, U20s and U23s. He's been groomed by the CSA to perform at the international level for a reason - he's the real deal. St. Clair has had a great half season and has a very high ceiling, but has done zero at the international level. Simply being good in MLS does not necessarily translate to the Concacaf level. St. Clair has earned a call up, but will need to rid

    The negativity towards Crepeau is sort of perplexing and a “what have you done for me lately” attitude. He’s been injured all season and led the league in saves last season. He’s also less error prone than Borjan IMO. The only knock on Crepeau compared to the other two is his height really. I obviously get why people are more comfortable with two presences like Borjan and St Clair. I see it as those two and then Crepeau at 3 but I would be comfortable with any of them (and Leutwiler as well tbh).

  12. In a game they needed to win, and with a goal down, the coach brought on Yilmaz to partner with David and subbed off Yazici. Galtier has stuck with David (normal squad rotation aside) despite the goal drought so I have no doubt that he sees the contribution that JD is making to the team’s overall play. He seems pretty stoic so is hard to read, but it definitely seems like he “gets it” and is looking far beyond the goals stat to assess David.

    Orrrrrr..... you go with a 3-4-3 Hoilett - Cavallini/Larin - David Davies - Arfield - Eustaquio/Hutch - Laryea Henry - Vitoria - James This one worries me a little, I think we'd lose the midfield battle vs the stronger teams.

    The Road to Qatar.

    It is. Mexico has the best depth. This hurts the USMNT a little bit, because our first side has potential for excellence, but our second choice is either Talent Gappers or not-quite-ready-yet youngsters. Do you go with Konrad de la Fuente or Paul Arriola? kind of decisions. Jamaica can recruit its way into some depth. Costa Rica has a fairly good league to fall back on. but they just aren't as good as they used to be. They haven't won a game in over a year. Panama .... their depth lost 6-0 to the USMNT. Seem to have a high cliff there, although a few players missed in the November cycle.

    I agree with this, but then I think going out on his own terms might mean playing in a Canada jersey with one last shot at what has eluded him since 2006 qualifying.

  20. With Crepeau injured and Leutwiler playing I think the latter is in there. A keeper getting bombed on a weak team is not ideal, because with our CBs we need leadership at the back and he doesn't get to show it.

  21. Vancouver - Seattle - Vancouver would be fucking brilliant, if we could trust the Yanks not to fuck it up. They'll probably stick us in Miami or Denver. Actually, Denver wouldn't preclude a BC Place double-header.

  23. If Vancouver had managed to get into the playoffs and went on a big roll to the final four, how do you think posters around here would react, notably the Caps' ones? I definitely support your points about going back to the two leg playoffs but I also think the single knockout format exposes the cracks in the supposedly better teams in this league because I frankly don't think they're as good as some make them out to be.

    I like Crepeau, but I sort of agree with this. I wouldn't be worried if we had to start Max in a big game, but I would certainly be more confident with Borjan, and probably with St. Clair to be honest, even though he has never played for us at any level. I buy the argument that St. Clair could play at a higher level. The Minnesota fans all rave about him and MLS neutrals are impressed. I doubt so many are wrong. Meanwhile, Crepeau for as good as he was last year never had anyone expecting him to move to Europe. He's a fine option to have, but I don't think he has the presence that St. Cl

    I agree with most of this, but we just gotta find a spot for Eustaquio. Not sure about Hoilett in the midfield in a 4-3-3. Defensive duties aren't really his thing. That lineup sounds like more of a 4-2-4.

  29. I'd play Hoillet always, and I personally believe anyone who does not get this is dumb. For me I'd put Larin or Cavallini up high. David in the midfield but behind the striker. One pure wing on the right, Davies. No such thing on the left. Unless he shifted to the left upon occasion. Rest of midfield: Arfield, Hoillet and Atiba. Yes, a 4-3-3, sort of.

  30. That was probably me complaining about Seattle’s style of play. But i have no issues with the fact that Seattle won. They did it under a two leg format and they are incredibly consistent (their record and placement in the standings) year after year. They would not be an example of what i was reffering to above as “one day an undeserving team will win it all”. edit.: here is a good example of what i was referring to: Cincinnatti at the MLS is back tournament. They made noise at that tournament. They beat RBNY in the group stage, they advanced to the knock out stage, took

    I mean in general, I think if Dayne started on goal for Canada, I would feel our net is as well tended as with Borjan.. but with Max there was always a sense of uneasiness, mostly steaming from him looking unsure of himself.

    Atiba Hutchinson

    My person opinion, Kaye, and Piette. Eustaquio, Hutchinson, Arfield are automatic. If they play a 4-2-2-2, or 4-4-2 diamond, then I think Osorio gets the last spot. Herdman rates him, and has played very well in big club/country games over the last 4 years. Very good passer, and doesn’t give the ball up. Also has improved significantly on the defensive side of the ball.

    Atiba is "only" 37 and is still a starter with Bestikas, plus he played in last year's Gold Cup. Arfield should still be committed, that report he was done was a miscommunication due to Canada not scheduling games iirc.

    The Road to Qatar.

    This is very interesting in the long term because 3 games will place even more emphasis on squad depth. Is that a benefit or not for Canada? I tend to say it may hinder our chances against the top 3 but could be an advantage against the low 4-5 teams in the Octagonal.

  38. Just seeing this on Twitter about the Octagonal. Sounds like some calendar changes have been approved by FIFA. "Men's International Match Calendar: For CONCACAF, to extend by an additional day the existing windows of September 2021, October 2021, January 2022 and March 2022 to facilitate the playing of three matches, in place of the existing two, in each of these windows." Maybe the Octagonal now starts in September 2021 instead of June 2021. If so, that would mean each country's 14 matches would be condensed into 5 windows: September 2021 (3 matches), October 2021 (3 matches),

    I tend to agree, but perhaps he is thinking we shore up our weakest position by having an additional player back there? 3 are better than 2? Just playing devil's advocate.
