    Love Piette, but MAK's got greater upside.

    Agree with you both. Kaye definitely has a higher ceiling. Just pointing out that Kaye's ganaring attention, in part, because LAFC has had a fantastic start. 
    If he were putting in those performances in Montreal, and Piette was doing what he does in LA, the narritaves would swap as well.

    I think MAK currently ranks ahead of Piette. He's the closest thing to a new Hutchinson as we have imo.
    That being said from what I've noticed the American MLS analysts don't pay as much attention to the Canadian teams. Especially Montreal and Vancouver. I remember watching the MLS All-Star game and Taylor Twellman basically commented on Piatti like "Wow this guy is so good. Nobody knows about this guy because he plays in Montreal".
    So even if Montreal was doing well I'm not sure Piette would be getting the same notice.

    Looked very good for first 30 minutes. Looked poor in the second half. Long ways to go still. Not convinced they've got the horses...

    Once again, he has to have a strong next few months, not just coasting. 
    He was good the last dozen games last season, very strong on a team that was pretty poorly run. I'd say we need him to be at that level, then you can call him in, assuming everyone is healthy in our midfield.
    Basically the same for Will Johnson, and for Akindele.
    And of course if any other of the MLS guys in the mix were to fall off, they'd also risk losing a chance at starting (Oso, Kaye, Piette).

    I would be very surprised if the club didn't go out and seriously upgrade the Teibert/Felipe/Rose spot in this three man midfield during this summer transfer window.
    The one thing at which Felipe excels is drawing fouls while in possession.  I'd be curious to know he ranks with other midfielders in that statistic.

    I never need to see Felipe again. He is consistently terrible - he doesn't pass well, cross well, tackle well, track back, etc. He does do a pretty good job of looking busy and appearing earnest.

    Don’t mean to be that guy but vela is a knob, just kick it in the net. You  don’t dribble it slowly in and look like a ass.

    Yes, and Drew Moor is the key piece in the back, in so much as he is the organizer they need. Not impressed with Ciman at all so far. He will be second choice all season, barring injury to Moor and Mavinga

    Well, Pozuelo is good.
    Overshadowed by Pozuelo, Osorio and Chapman both had a great game and continued their great start to the year. For me, Chapman seems deserving to get in the rotation a lot more than in previous years. He has had an impact every time he has played. 
    I think both Osorio and Chapman will actually benefit from having Pozuelo there. He will open up more space in the middle, because he obviously attracts attention. And he will find both of them on their runs, as both of them like to attack the back line. TFC looking like their old self, and they still have some serious TAM to work with.

    I know it is early, but this team looks legit. And to think reinforcements are on the way too! I know the story will be Pozuelo tonight, but several guys looked excellent, including Oso.

    Sometimes that is the best option.  Playing out of the back is great with talented players on the backline and in net, but even then there are always situations where it is more appropriate to hammer the ball up the field and make the other team play through all 10 outfield players to get a chance on net.  You would think most pros would have that down without issue.  Our team is usually good for one major screw up every game and that could be the difference between a 2-1 loss and a 1-1 draw against better opposition.  Now that we have some attacking power I would much rather our D take no chances and hoof the ball up the pitch rather than gift the opposition a chance/goal.

    Totally agree. (And to be clear, I was right there, with a perfect view of the play.)  Maybe the word I used to describe the pass--i.e. "casual"--was not the right one. Cocky might be more apt. It was a pass into a dangerous area, for sure. Aloyol is right: I am glad this happened in this game. Let's clean up this silly stuff as quickly as possible. (We need more friendlies.)

    No, he was too casual on the initial pass to Piette. Borjan could have cleared that to the wings, not back to the middle of the pitch.

    Please don't go, Spitfire! I don't envy you this challenge, but as dads still figuring out this parenting thing I think we need to remember there is no parenting manual that applies to all situations, so we have to forgive ourselves if we don't always get things 100% right. As my dad used to tell me: keep your pecker up, son! This was but one game on your journey.
