    It's not even like Davies is a career lb, he's played a few games there but for the most part has been an attacker in his career.  We finally get a guy who is dynamic on the ball and who can attract a ton of attention and beat players and Herdman in our biggest games has put him at lb.  Herdman is just out of his league, the team was ill prepared and he ran out a 4-4-2 with basically no attackers who can break lines and trouble teams on the break aside from David and that's not even his major strong point.  This game was easy to set up tactically, you play a compact 4-3-3 and you try to frustrate the opposition and look to counter, but he played Davies as an attacking lb in a game we should be defending a decent amount because ???? This is our most exciting team in for ever and this guy has no clue what he's doing or how to prepare a team.  Was the same thing in the gold cup, poor job setting the team up and not utilizing his best player at all.  It's like when Spurs played Gareth Bale at lb, just a huge waste of talent of someone who's not a great defender anyways.

    He's a moron, its not even a difficult calculation to make.  Davies is the best LB, RW, LW, RB etc and at LB he barely has a chance to influence the game.  At Bayern he's playing LB because they have Gnabry, Coman, Perisic, Mueller ahead of him, Herdman has absolutely no idea what he's doing if he thinks its a no brainer, just absolutely no idea how to utilize his best players.  The best LB for Bayern plays CM for Austria because of the gulf in talent from Bayern to Austria and because he influences the game massively, Herdman is just copying people's work because he's not at the level to sort these problems out for himself.

    Has Henry ever looked good? The team looked 10x better when Cornelius came in. 
    Also, Davies HAS to be up top for us. The Canadian mens national team is not Bayern..

    A bold choice by Herdman to go with a more offensive line-up and formation on the road than the one that worked so well at home (where both of our goals were scored on counters in that game) but it did not pay off. I guess the people  wanting to see Canada play attacking soccer will take some solace from that, but it was a gamble that didn't work and when we only needed a draw to win the group, that is a shame. In fairness to Herdman, a few players individually had woeful performance, with Cavallini being the most disappointing. And this was still a US team for the taking, because they weren't that impressive - we had to switch off to let them score and we looked the more talented but mistake prone team. But onwards and upwards. No use in dwelling upon it though, start scheduling some friendlies pronto.
    I liked what I saw from Eustaquio in his debut. Still good fight by the team and much to be encouraged about.

    There were some horrendous errors leading to their goals but I think we were set up for failure, Herdman to me is tactically naive, one good result vs non minnows, bad in the 3 losses! Maybe he grows into the job and there will be lots of opportunities as we will be playing many matches against minnows, I'm not convinced he should be the guy leading us forward!

    Why do people hate the idea of Adekugbe or Miller being our LB? Why do I keep seeing Davies and Kaye being mentioned?
    Kaye needs to stay in the mid and Davies needs to be upfront,  end of discussion. I dont give a rat's ass what he did against Dortmund. He doesnt have the same players supporting him here. Believe it or not, he still showed signs of weakness in that game.   
    Davies was giving them hell when he pushed up to the box.  We were missing that the whole game, but nope, gotta place him alllll the way back at defence. Ffs.
    The 2 strikers today were disappointing today.
    Cornelius should've started today too. Not at all happy Herdman decided to fuck around with a line up that worked so well last time. Even more concerning was his quote about Davies after the game.

    Davies is an attacking defender.  For Bayern it's great because they dominate possession and have really good wingers ahead of him. For Canada we play an attacking fullback who's our best attacking threat in a game where we should be generally soaking up pressure and countering, he's playing high to try and get in the ball in attacking areas and is barely involved. Playing Miller who will stay home makes a lot more sense then try to get Davies into space, but nah herdman I'm important games takes our biggest threat and moves him back out of dangerous areas to play no players who really thrive counter attacking and stretching a defense.
