  1. Since I follow Liam on insta, looks like him and his fiancée are expecting a baby! Congrats to them and @spitfire !!!
  2. Ehhh I was a bit anti-Bayern in the past. Didn’t like the personnel they had. But I’ve grown to become a fan after watching them so many times, following their social media, etc and Alphonso has become my favourite athlete. So admittedly I’ve become a Bayern fan in the process and want to see them succeed bc ofc that’s only good for Alphonso’s career. To be fair, I’m quite neutral when it comes to European football. Grew up supporting Arsenal but could care of less now. I understand your relationship with Barca is far different and I suppose Bayern is direct competitor (kind of?) for the biggest prize of all.
  3. I’ve watched every Bayern game this year and didn’t think it was Alphonsos best but that is just where the bar is set right now. He has put in so many high-level performances that he has elevated himself to being nit picked a little, even at this young of an age. Very exciting to think about that because sky is truly the limit. Thought he was great going forward but thought he had a little rust but so did many players. Excited for the upcoming matches! Janusz Michalli had very high praises. He thought Phonzy was the best player on the pitch without a doubt. https://mobile.twitter.com/JanuszMichallik/status/1262522300575948800
  4. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2020/03/03/victor-wanyama-signed-montreal-impact-designated-player-tottenham-hotspur can’t be good news for Piette regarding his minutes?
  5. Great to have a young Canadian CB get minutes in a good league This is what the CPL is all about. And I am thrilled. Gets an OPPORTUNITY to show what he’s about in our national league and has taken advantage of it. We have come a long way (FINALLY!!!!) as a footballing nation.
  6. I would have imagined the comment was in reference to him leading the league in scoring earlier and than someone overtaking him? Just assuming.
  7. Gent midfield lacking quality. David needs better service.
  8. I think the issue is fans tend to make very incorrect generalizations of a players success (or lack there of) by just visiting their Wikipedia page and taking a peep at how many goals they’ve netted.
  9. Not sure if this was posted anywhere but little interview w Tomori and talks about Davies/Canada for a good bit of it.
  10. Seemingly running out of gas. Gotta add something else for a spark
  11. One thing that we missed with previous coaches is this.. love how Herdman is pushing them on, showing urgency as soon as the 2nd half begun. Imagine Floro coaching this game?
  12. midfield looking great, tesho/ricketts combo very uninspiring though
  13. Agree with most of the comments above. Crepeau in no-mans land on the first goal, felt amateurish. Miller although strong and has decent presence, had a few mental errors. Didic was a bright spot for me, calm on the ball, strong, and a presence. Adekugbe seems fine but still underwhelming. Lareya was okay, expecting more from him in the 2nd half. Brym had flashes of brilliance, exciting addition to the program but still has a lot of work to do before becoming a real footballer imo. Piette did Piette things, breaking up plays, but still feel like I want more from him going forward. Oso was Oso, one of the only ways I see us breaking through is a moment from him. Liam looked pretty solid. Ricketts a bit invisible. Tesho should clearly have done better on his chance.
  14. Another cool vid following Alphonso around for the day in Doha. He’s great in front of the camera and just so likeable. We are getting in on the ground floor here for a future Canadian icon
  15. https://fcbayern.com/fcbayerntv/en/videos/2020/01/training-tournament-in-doha this was also a good little video. nice highlights of our boy
  16. Weren’t there very positive stats recently about the amount of dribbles he was having in the league? Albeit on a very defensive and underperforming team. So unless you have been watching the games and know something the rest of us don’t, “yet to show he’s a productive player at the professional level” seems to be a bit of a stretch. Of course it’s easy to look at his lack of goals, jump to conclusions and wish for more but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t contributed in other ways. And a few disgruntled fans on twitter supporting a struggling team shouldn’t be the barometer of objectivity. Unforunately we haven’t got a great look at the kid with the national team because of stiff competition. Apologies in advance if you’ve been watching him week in and week out.
  17. What happened to Grizzly over the past few months? Miss his posts!
  18. Remember playing FIFA2000 and having some sort of career mode and making sure my team had Davide Xausa. Such a cool name. 🔥
  19. Watched the entire match. Thought he was ok today, good defensively but his final ball in the final third was a bit poor and had some miss passes. But overall a very good showing from the team collectively which can only be for Davies.
  20. Still think I would prefer Cornelius over Henry. I was never a big fan of either but Cornelius has hardly put a foot wrong every time I’ve watched him a Canadian jersey, albeit usually vs very weak competition. But his distribution has been good and I’ve hardly noticed him, which is a very good thing as a CB. Henry on the other hand scares the sh*t outta me with his recklessness. Always feels like he’s one play away from changing the makeup of the game. Not a huge fan of the switch.
  21. I'm in the camp of seeing him at a club like Hoffenheim, Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen, etc. A team where he is guaranteed (almost anyways) minutes and has a chance to play Champions League football. Impressing at a club like that which is a very real outcome can see him make the next step to a legit top club in world football. But I do agree with others that being bought by a team like Bayern isn't impossible. While I do mainly follow the Premiership in Europe, I'd prefer to see him in the Bundesliga. Not only for the level and style of play but the idea of getting see Davies vs David is just a fantastic thought. Followed this team for 66% of my life (22 years) and can safely say this is the most exciting time to be a Canadian football supporter. It's been a long time coming but the actual joy (sometimes feels so irrational) I get from watching one of our guys do well has been worth all suffering, annoyance, heartbreak, apathy, and everything else that has come along with being a Canadian football supporter for all these years.
  22. Disagree. It was a great build-up by Frankfurt and there was a wicked deflection straight to the Frankfurt player at the backpost. I wouldn't call that losing your man.
  23. Ok apparently the higher the grade, the worse the performance haha, oops. Some Bayern fans not happy with Bild ratings Davies 5 (6 is the worst grade). Seems like whoever gave the ratings didn’t watch the match, just looked at the game sheet and saw the OG. https://mobile.twitter.com/iMiaSanMia/status/1189310582949928960 Discuss here.
  24. Watched the entire Bayern match and Davies hardly put a foot wrong all match, of course the OG was very unfortunate and his positioning could have been a bit better but these things happen in football. The commentators thought it was very unlucky, and was a very difficult ball to defend. Bayern as a whole were quite dreadful all night. Gnarby had a stinker until the last 15 minutes, Boteng with a lot of mis-passes out of the back, Perišić struggled and Coman was inefficient for the most part. Mueller came on as a sub and was totally out of sync with his teammates. But this is what makes these guys world class, Gnarby and Mueller both had their big moments and were clinical. Davies was rated highest on the team, along with Perišić (questionable) according to Bild. He had some very positive moments going forward in the first half and was great to see him rebound after the OG as you could see who was stunned and upset. These are the learning experiences that’ll help him develop into a true professional at the highest level.
