    I'm thinking Atiba instead of MAK. Here's a chance to give Hutch a proper send off. 

    Proper send of would be a friendly at home in Toronto against Turkey, Denmark or Netherlands IMO.

    Having said that, his recent performances show he could potentially be in the starting lineup on merit. 

    Our mid is crowded tho. Tough to drop guys. It got even more crowded with Frasers performance and addition of Eustaquio.

    Except he wasnt all they had..they already had 3 players who could play cb when they sent him on and they put blackmon at rb and sent him on..they could have put blessing at rb for example and kept blackmon at cb..no way they would have sent cornelius with the mistakes hes made this year and not sure he would even make the lafc roster this year..and to say hes a starter in vancouver..16 starts, 13 stayed on the bench, 1 subbed on and 1 kept out of the 18 and the 3 others he was at the gold cup..if thats a starter its very barely

    1. Stating no way LAFC would have sent Cornelius out with the mistakes he made AT VWFC is such a subjective statement, there is no way to back it up as anything more than opinion

    2. Stating he wouldn't make LAFC roster again is nothing but subjective opinion. MLS rosters take into consideration many variables such as Cornelius' lack of cap hit, he very well could have made their roster, but nobody could say for certain 

    3. he started and played 90 minutes in 9 of the teams last 11 games. He didn't begin the season as a starter, but he definitely finished it as one which is what mattered most

    4. Not sure what the point of this subjective argument is or why  Cornelius was brought up in this thread, so I'm going to drop it.  Ragging on one of our young up and coming players(when this thread should be talking positively about a guy whose barely seen minutes this year finding 15 mins in a conference semi) who put in a damn strong performance against the USA benefits nobody.

    Why nowhere near..he just got 15 min in a conference semi..that would mean that someone like cornelius is much better..was on and off this year on a very weak team..would cornelius get sent on for 15 min against zlatan and pavon..hell no

    If he was a backup defender on LAFC and they were looking to protect the lead then yes, he would have. But he's a starter for VWFC so he didn't. 

    Jakovic got sent out there because he's all LAFC had, the situations couldve been reversed if the two players swapped roster spots (LAFC vs VWFC).

    Even if Bradley leaves there is no chance that Vanney will play Liam. Vanney will just bring in some international on big money to do the job that Liam could do just fine. Not just because Vanney doesn't like young Canadians, but also because fans go crazy in the MLS if you replace a DP with a homegrown. The "status" of a player has way to much influence in the MLS and the regular fan wouldn't be happy. I don't like it, but I think it's true.

    For the fairweather fan wouldn't it be a plus to replace a run of the mill defensive midfielder DP with a homegrown and use that DP slot for a internationally recognizable striker? They wouldn't see replacing a Bradley DP with a homegrown, they'd see as replacing a Bradley DP with <insert here internationally known striker>

    Wow, that is some motivation there! He won't find that kind of money anywhere else. Where did you see this?

    A reminder that@samstejskaland I reported back in July that Michael Bradley's $6.5 million option is automatically triggered if #TFCLive wins MLS Cup. Just two wins away now:

    It all depends on what level contact Bradley gets if any.  If they sign him to heaven forbid another DP contract Fraser needs to go.  If they sign him to a TAM probably the same.  If he gets a regular contact it will be a solid sign that they are transitioning to Fraser and then he would be in a great position to learn from one of the best while easing into the role.

    Apparently there is an automatic DP single year option at $6.5M on Bradley if TFC wins the MLS cup.

    I am open to the idea. If those guys are playing for their clubs and doing well in training, I don’t see why not. Pieter doesn’t have any games between the two national team games. Fraser probably won’t play either. Osorio still has at least one game, but could be done after Wednesday. If those players aren’t as sharp and Hutch and Eustaquio are fitting well into the system Herdman wants in training, sure, put them in the game.

    We’ll have to agree to disagree on the mid choices for the game then.

    Maybe. But Hoilett was on the bench his first game after his hat trick against Cuba. And he was even the captain for that game.

    Thats because we went from playing cuba to the US. There was a huge tactical shift from offensive to defensive and along with it came personnel change. We’re going from playing the US to.... playing the US. It’s one thing to put in a great performance against Cuba, its another to do it against the US, and we play them again in 4 weeks. 

    Not to mention Hoilett is in our most crowded third in terms of player quality. 

    Do you want to see Eustaquio and Hutch as starting mids in Orlando?

    Take a photo of the ticket (QR CODE) and show the photo at the entrance.  Or I’ll have them scan my US phone.

    Taking a photo doesnt work for many mobile tickets now. The barcode regenerates every minute. 

    but if its on the ticketmaster app, you just open the ticket once with data, and in the future it is saved regardless of if you have data when entering the stadium.

    Herdman has called Henry his best defender and has said many times Henry is in the leadership group of the team.  For better or worse, you gotta think Henry will play. 

    Vitoria plays as the left CB at his club.  Henry plays on the right with the 'Caps.  It's fine. 

    Cornelius is the most likely to sit. 

    Thats tough on Cornelius given he hasnt done anything to lose his starting job, but between him and Vitoria, im probably dropping cornelius. Also Vitoria will be in mid season where Cornelius will have gone a month without a game. 

    This post just got me thinking, wow Menjrekar James has really fallen off our radar. When his club gave him the opportunity to leave, maybe he should have taken it.

    Kaye or Piette, but the way Piette played against the states, there is no way Herdman would take him out of the lineup. Now if Kaye has a playoff run to remember with LAFC, then maybe Herdman goes back to Kaye. But honestly, every time Atiba plays in a big match for Canada, he’s always been money for me. 

    the good need is we only need to wait 2-3 weeks  to find out if Atiba is in the 23

    Which mid do you see us dropping from the 23 man? Maybe Teibert? Given frasers performance, i dont see how you drop him. Johnson is probably out as well. 

    Also i wonder what happens if Larin bags a couple goals btw now and roster selection.

    Apparently the reason why he didn’t come was cause he had just got back from injury, and it would have been taxing on his body to travel here to play and travel back. He also wanted to gain his spot back in the starting 11. Herdman stated he really wanted to come, but he needs to listen to his body. I think he comes for this one. 

    Who do you see us dropping in the mid? 

  13. That injury was really unfortunate, not just because of the time off, but because of the difficulty of re establishing himself in the lineup. 

    if he never got injured, he couldve cemented himself as the starter and given his age who knows if bigger clubs may have been snooping around.
