  1. ...or Cornelius. The more I think about it, the more I see Herdman going with a back four of Cornelius, Vitoria, Henry and Laryea.
  2. Yes, he did. @BigBird. He was great. Its been awhile. I always liked Julian. Very sad to hear.
  3. I don't like to crap on kids, but I only see Nelson and Habibullah. Even then they both need a significant amount of work.
  4. I hate to continue to beat the same drum but if you don't give the kids a system to play in, they're going to make bad decisions. If you give them a system, the bad decisions should be less.
  5. And that's probably the most disappointing thing. One would've hoped that they would've used the last four months to look at how the team performed and try to fix problems. I don't see any of that.
  6. Its funny that everyone is talking about Piette and Hutch and MAK when the real selection issue is between Cornelius, Vitoria and Henry.
  7. Olivieri has this team playing like my Friday night pub team. As soon as we have the ball and start moving forward, the front five start making breakaway runs. There is no link between the back line and the front line. This is exactly what the problem was during qualifying and it looks like it is even worse now. There is no supporting the player on the ball and there are so few passes under 10 yards. The only time that happens is when we move forward, realize there is no outlet and pass it back to the defenders. No way this team is going to be successful if that is how the coach is managing the team.
  8. That is a first-choice lineup. Should be a different game than on Saturday. Angola is going to be tough though.
  9. I think its here: https://www.tsn.ca/soccer/video/fifa-u-17-world-cup-brazil-vs-canada~1810468
  10. I'm pretty sure Olivieri played a diminished squad for this first game. No other reason to sit Habibullah and Rowe unless he is resting them for Angola. I think he'll want to ensure he has his first choice squad for that game. I think the reason you are disappointed with Nelson is because Brazil scouted Canada pretty well and he would always have two or three on him. Without other guys like Habibullah out there who also would've been scouted pretty heavily, Brazil knew to concentrate on Nelson. He looked like he was labouring pretty bad when he got subbed. Hopefully he'll be good to go on Tuesday.
  11. Understandable. I just wanted to make sure he got the recognition he deserved for that performance last night. I watched the Concacaf stream and Tony Meola and the other American were effusive in their praise for Piette.
  12. Somebody change the title of this thread. We just saw the best of him. What a game.
  13. Pretty gutsy move playing an 18 year old at the U17 World Cup.
