    What?  It most certainly is!   Not for any specific national teams purpose, but for their own.
    No owner or GM would ever tell their coaches that part of their job didn't include nurturing and developing the young talent that you already have in the club.  Not that they shouldn't prioritize winning games and getting results on the field in any way, but it's still an important job for all managers!

    Acid-Tone reacted to Jay striker in Belal Halbouni   
    Belal has been doing alright since the lock down started. He was lucky enough that the team let him fly back to canada and spend his time here over the last few months. He was able to continue his training doing individual drills and training on his own. He is now back in Germany with hopes of starting back up again and grinding it out soon.
    He would be 100% committed to playing team Canada. Born and raised here in this amazing country and will be proud to wear the jersey if he does get the call. 
    I'll keep you guys posted on his training and news

    Henry has a massive puzzle with the Impacts roster.  There is a lot of potential, but building continuity and familiarity will be his biggest challenge.  Even with 5 changes per game, it’ll be difficult to get everyone the playing time they need to prove themselves.  15-20minutes won’t cut it.  I don’t see how we play back to back games with the same 11.  Not to mention high salaries that don’t factor in the best 11.
    The depth on the wings is nuts, and no one really stands out as the clear starters:  Lappi, Quioto, Urutti, Ballou, Okwonkwo, Bojan..... 
    I don't see how we fit Bojan in there regularly, he's got talent, but a little too much like Ozil where he disappears for 85 minutes and then produces one magical touch.  Personally - due to CANMNT potential - I'd rather see Ballou in there playing the creative (non-defending) forward.
    The back is equally complicated.  You have Binks with loads of potential, same for ZBG, Waterman who we’d all like to see succeed (because CANMNT).  Fanni has to play, you’re paying Camacho a ton of money, Raitala is your captain. 
    With a back 3, Raitala logically takes the LWB role, but that’s not his best position and Lassi provides more speed and offensive threat.  
    Henry seems set on playing a back 3, I love the system but i’m not sure it gets the best 11 on the pitch.
    Best 11 is probably:
    -----------Quioto - Bojan
    Lassi - Wanyama - Taider - Okwonkwo
    Raitala - Binks - Fanni - ZBG
     
    The lineup I want to see:
    Tabla - Quioto - Okwonkwo  
    Lassi - Wanyama - Taider - ZBG
    Binks - Fanni - Waterman
    However, this leaves the two captains and even more money and talent on the bench: Raitala, Piette, Bojan, Camacho, Urruti.

    That was ugly tonight against the Revs.   I know it's only one game and between the new manager and Covid, it's been hard to build a lot of cohesion in the team.  You have to wonder where the goals will come from?
    Piette at RWB is just dumb.  I sure hope that never happens again.

    It's a pandemic.  It spreads easily.  One player catching it could easily spread it to the others.  This has all been known for a long time.  You've spent the last few months choosing to ignore this, while mocking anyone who took it seriously.

    Acid-Tone reacted to Obinna in Jonathan David   
    Sounds like there is a great base for them to build chemistry.
    The prospect of David linking up with an in-form Sanches is very exciting. Vadis Odjija is a decent player, but that extra quality you get with Renato Sanches should translate into passes getting to David earlier and more often. Unlike Davies, who will shine regardless of who is next to him, David can really use good players to combine with.

    I think maybe it was because of injuries on the backline that Waterman got in, Raitala and Camacho were both hurt.
