    Grizzly got a reaction from JuicyHam in Samuel Piette (we haven't seen the best of him yet!)   
    It probably also has something to do with him being a defensive midfielder which makes it harder to shine or be noticed. An offensive player lighting up the third division will get some attention. A defensive midfielder stopping the other teams' attacks may just seem to be  "a good player on a modest team".

    I prefer having the list on our forum and on the first page of the thread but I don't mind it on the linked google spreadsheet either. Unless someone else is willing to put in the time and do the work to run the list we really have to accept the preferences of the guy who is willing to do it and be thankful for his efforts as well.

    A sign he is moving up the ranks of pro-football when fans of a team that did not even play in the game are discussing one of his plays on a thread in their forum.

    Grizzly got a reaction from SoccMan in Great Issey Article from 4-4-2   
    Duka was not as good as Piatti or Romero but still a lot better player than Issey. We miss Duka this year. Issey was a real borderline MLS player especially since he was so weak defensively.

    That is his second goal of the season both headers off corners. Canada hasn't been very good on scoring from set plays for a long time so it could be valuable having someone like him in the box on corners and free kicks.

    Yes I think Cottbus did that at times too. He was not fast or technically skilled enough to be a striker (by which I mean to do the other things you need a striker to do other than just scoring goals) but he was a big body in the box, good with his head and a pretty good finisher when he had the chance so he could be used in that role when you needed a late game goal.

    Grizzly got a reaction from Greatest Cockney Rip Off in Canadians abroad: April 12-18, 2019   
    Kennedy played 90. Klagenfurt tied it up on a stoppage time goal for a 2-2 finish. A loss to a fellow relegation threatened side would have been terrible for them especially after a run of pretty good results brought them out of the relegation zone. They are presently tied with 3 other teams, 3 points above the relegation zone.

    Third game that he has had some playing time this year. He has impressed me every time, even when he came on as a sub in the 7-1 loss. Good speed, technical ability and seems to be a smart player. I think he will be a factor on the national team in the years to come.

    The Impact have another 3 games in a week stretch coming up. I am pretty sure ZBG will get at least one of those starts, probably the mid week game against New England.

    Grizzly got a reaction from BCM in Clément Bayiha   
    Both have looked good playing on opposite sides. Choiniere carries the ball more while Bayiha is more of a fast breaking player. Choiniere carries the ball into the middle or on the wings and tries to maintain possession while looking for a play. Bayiha is good at using his speed to run by players staying more on the wing until he is near the box and is also good at doing overlaps and passing to another player running by like he did with ZBG in the previous game.

    If they develop into solid MLS starters like I expect, a few years ago they would be automatic starters for the national team. However, even if they develop as much as I hope they might end up only being 3rd choice in their position with the national team which shows how quickly our depth has developed. Any good national team needs depth like that and it gives us other options if our more heralded talent like Tabla do not progress as much as we are predicting.

    The grass was pretty brown but it was still 100% better than what we played on in New York the week before. Actually the pitch did not look good but it did not seem poor to play on. I think it looked worse than it was.
