    gator got a reaction from Club Linesman in Forge FC Season Thread 2020   
    This could be a very good signing for Forge, who knows though, I haven't seen him play in a few years, unlike Vanney, I thought he was quite good at TFC, he showed some flair but one misplaced backheel signaled the end so Vanney could replace him with one of his pet projects!

    Canadian soccer fans will always be able to prove Henry is not dependable by waiting for one mistake and ignoring the rest of the man's play.

    So, I see on the program guide that Optus Sport, the local rights holder, is replaying the CL group stage match between Spurs and Bayern in London. The match was played at the start of October. I put it on just before halftime and Davies is nowhere to be seen. Can you imagine a big game now where Bayern leave the Phonz on the bench? Let us never forget how meteoric his rise has been over the last 10 months.

    So I just went frame by frame on it.  The guy pulled Doneil’s shirt with his left team to pull him to the right side then cut left and stiff armed him with his right arm as he made the cut. 
     
    That goal should have been a yellow card.  It’s pretty unfortunate.

    It is so frustrating. I have a lot of time for Doneil. He has the tools and we all want him to just put them together to be consistent because he could be an absolute beast for us. He still hasn't reached peak for a defender but he hasn't cut out the silly errors and I don't know that will happen at this point. 
    He can still excel and be a huge player for Canada either way but it depends on who he is partnered with. The right fit and players around him can help.

    gator reacted to Obinna in Herdman new head coach   
    I still haven't let this go. I really do not understand it. Didn't he ask the players whether they want to attack the US or sit back?
    I don't care so much that he asked the players, because I don't think that approach is inherently bad. What I do have a problem with is how he set the team up to attack. He figured that Davies at LB brings opportunity to get more attackers on the field, but Davies is our best attacker and he was on the backline. Furthermore, he violated his own principal of playing Davies at LB against the weaker teams. Against the teams we dominate possession against.
    I find this difficult to reconcile.  
    And then on top of all of that, like you said, he took something that worked amazingly well and threw it away.
    We really let the USA off the hook and it is a damn shame.

    gator reacted to dyslexic nam in Herdman new head coach   
    That is at the root of my concern.  He is essentially still in a learning phase, and while confidence is generally  a good thing, I am not sure his level of self-belief suggests the sort of humility required to acknowledge and accept some of the lessons he has been presented with.  And at the end of the day, we only have so many “big moments” where this is tested.

    That's unfortunate. I've been a fan of his play and thought he was underrated last season (though it is easy to be overlooked when you have the guys around him that Forge had).
    I haven't been keeping up with the Forge news, looks like they are losing Monsalve as well.  Bringing on Tissot and Bobouli would be a big boost.

    You don't get why there are border restrictions, have you read the news from the US lately or do you not believe it or do you think it would be a good idea to let an infected country travel to Canada where we have done quite well comparitively in controlling the virus?

    I can't say how I know but I think W/C qualifying will begin in October, we will have a vaccine by the end of the year, we will qualify for 2022 and last but not least I will win Lotto Max and all the booze is on me at our next Men's qualifier.⚽😁

    If you think the numbers are significantly skewed by COVID positive car crash victims I don’t think we are using the same standards of evidence.  I am also suspect if a single US official’s views being deemed persuasive when they have clearly allowed politics to sway their views on COVID.

    I can't see this as anything more than a win for us. We are lucky they changed it from us only having a chance at the 0.5 spot.

    Would Leeds be that bad?   Won the Championship and willing to invest in players of his calibre to try and stay up in the Premier League for a while?   We usually hope for transfers of CMNT players to top leagues and David would be moving to a top 3 league without an interim step to France - albeit with a newly promoted team.  It is a great level of play, would likely give him tons of playing time (against a lot of quality teams), and if he is successful it would raise his profile immensely.

    Quote from Cavalier FC technical director Rudolph Speid: “Why we love the Canadian League more than even the USL (United Soccer League) is that this is going to be the second season of the Canadian League and they have already sold about four players to Europeans clubs."
    Those transfers really do attract meaningful attention.

    gator reacted to Obinna in Atiba Hutchinson   
    You got to love what Hutchinson is doing, playing some of his best football in the twilight of his career. 
    His career has been criminally underrated in Canada and CONCACAF. 
    If he can keep it going at Besiktas and help Canada qualify for the world cup, boy that will be some accomplishment. 
    Player of the year in Denmark. Multiple league titles in Denmark. Won the Dutch cup with PSV. Won multiple Turkish titles with Besiktas, became a club legend. Record holder for most European games from a concacaf player... AND led his national team to the world cup for the first time in 36 years? 
    That would HAVE to be "concacaf-legend" status..... you couldn't seriously ignore all of those accolades.

    gator reacted to shamrock in Liam Fraser   
    I really think he should leave TFC. He's 22 and the Cap is killing his career. DM / CM is one of the most influential positions and it makes sense for the club to put a DP there. He'll never get meaningful minutes without a serious injury or suspension of Bradley. Not saying the club is treating him unfairly or whatever, but at 22 he should be playing week-in week-out and growing into that leadership position.
