  1. I am willing to bet that Osorio is top 3 in their ranking.
  2. That's fine. I don't mind winning all my games 9-8, so long as Serioux breaks some ankles.
  3. So, is there some way we can simulate a round-robin home-and-away tournament with all these teams? I'm starving for any type of action and I need to see some report that shows Rob Friend leading a league in scoring. Come on all you gamers in self-isolation, lets get on it. I'd put down heavy amounts of cash that my team would destroy.
  4. Martin Nash is criminally underappreciated. The architect of our two best Gold Cup runs. He was amazing when he pulled on the Canadian jersey.
  5. Friend-Hume Simpson-Nash-JdG-Davies Hastings-Serioux-Devos-Stalteri Hirschfeld Come at me.
  6. So does that mean he's not coming to CPL to revive his career which has absolutely crated in shambles? Huge missed opportunity. 😉
  7. The next time we play the US, Pulisic may have a chip on his shoulder because of what happened in Toronto. Are we going to derail every thread to discuss that too?
  8. Had a long reply to this, but I lost it. Coles notes: Marcus Joseph was brought up to address your claim that Telfer was T&T's most in form striker. He is not. You've been going on for about six months about how Telfer was a missed opportunity when there was never really a chance to cap him. We had been playing our best in Nations League and Gold Cup as we thought it was going to matter for seeding and he doesn't figure in our best 18. Before that, he didn't deserve a call up. For every Telfer we miss out on, we cap an Aleman and a Bustos and a Twardek and an Aird (I had more examples, but they're gone and I'm too tired to go look them up). You can't play chicken little with the one that got away just because they might do something later. Especially when there are clearly better options to take his place and clearly better options that deserved time on the pitch at the time when he was available.
  9. Umm...no. Not when one of those goals came against Martinique and the other two came against Anguilla in a 15-0 win. Your argument about him being their most in form striker also doesn't hold water when Marcus Joseph scored 5 for T&T that game. Worrying about Ryan Telfer is as relevant as worrying about absolutely any other player on any other team.
  10. True, but back in those days we would be raving over a starting 11 of: Crepeau Grant - Gasparotto - Thomas - Frano Piette Petrasso - Fisk Carreiro Boakai - Jackson-Hamel There was a ton of hype around Petrasso, Piette, Carreiro, and Boakai back then. Petrasso was a can't miss prospect. Boakai had more hype around him than any forward we have on this 50-man list. So I wouldn't necessarily laud how far we've come.
  11. Bayern LB is not the same as Canada LB. Two completely different positions. Its interesting though that what Bayern looks for in a LB is similar to what Canada needs in a LW: someone that can make incredible runs, can cross and has a little bit of defensive awareness. Canada isn't good enough to have that in a LB, but definitely needs it as a LW.
  12. I'm confused. By "journalist" do you mean "club that sold him"?
  13. I'm more than happy to hold one for you.
  14. You need to understand why this happened to understand why Davies at LB for Canada is not a great idea: Davies knows that he's one of the top players on the field when he's on the pitch. That is not the case when he plays for Bayern. Therefore, when he takes the pitch for Canada, he's under pressure to drive the play and control a match, all from a LB position. That is ludicrous. When he plays for Bayern he's free to freewheel because Bayern's backline will bail him out and he's always got at least two options offensively that can get him out of a jam going forward. That is not the case for Canada. Also, people need to stop with the Liverpool and modern game fullbacks ********. That is fine for a club team that can go out and buy solutions to problems in their lineup and build their starting 11. That is not the case for Canada on the international stage. For Canada, you need to start with defenders defending and attackers attacking. Anything more than that is gravy, but that is where you have to start.
  15. Hey man, Gyaki single-handedly qualified us for a U20 World Cup. More than any of the others have done. [/thread derailed]
