    Gasparotto is going to go from being dumped out of the Scottish second tier to MLS in one season? I get the excitement at our own league, but come on guys.

    Bigger leaps over the course of a year happen all the time. I haven’t watched a whole lot of his game, but the concept isn’t all that shocking

    3-0 nil now.  And should be more.  Other team just lets them have it in midfield and the attacks come in waves.  

    Probably take some off their starters off as they start in Europe this week. 

    Yeah, they’re inviting pressure. David probably should’ve had another one. With the yellow he’s a likely candidate for an early sub

    edit: uh oh. He came off limping. Looks like a hamstring

     Davies assisted or scored 17 his last year in Vancouver;  David had 19 combined in all competitions last year.  

    He will very clearly outpace that this year if he continues along the same lines but he did start very well last year, as well.  He also plays with a coach that loves a wide open game. 

    But mostly it was just an opinion going by what I saw on the pitch.  I thought, Davies was ironically a man among boys; David has great vision and incredible finishing, not sure he is completely out grown his league yet. 

    Not that don't I love watching him, his games and his team.

    26 points in 81 matches for Davies with Vancouver. 29 points in 54 matches for David with Gent. It’s actually closer than I thought. They’re both best with Canada though! 15 goals and 13 assists combined over the last 14 or so games!

    We will see. 

    I don't think he is dominating the Juliper League the way Davies did MLS, yet. Take that for what it is worth.  I would rather him get minutes than a big name at this point in his career.  

    David’s production is so much better than Davies ever achieved in MLS

    Harry Paton is a player I think deserve a look for this team. He is getting minutes for Ross County in the Scottish Premiership. He started today for the first time in the league and played 90 minutes in a 2-1 win. 

    He seems to be highly rated by his manager https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/sport/football/ross-county/1822905/paton-staking-claim-for-staggies-midfield-berth-says-kettlewell/amp/

    Why do players move up and down divisions so much in Scotland. He was playing in League 2 not too long ago, now he’s in the premier league. Zannata has been all over the place as well

    We need to beat them to make the Hex.  Do you consider not making the Hex a failure? 

    Yes. Absolutely. But is Herdman really to blame for that? The rankings go back before him. When has beating the US ever been a given?

    we should expect 3 to 4 points out of the 2 matches with the US.  If not, that is another strike, and he is walking a very fine line.

    So we’re considering two ties with the states a failure?

    With his youth, performance and physical attributes I’m sure a club in Europe is going to want to take a look at him.

    He’s probably a lock for the U23 team and with a goal or 2 internationally I wouldn’t be surprised to see the new Canadian-Belgium connection in action and someone from that league taking a shot at him.

    I hope we keep him for another season. He’s really only taken off in the last 10 games or so, and I think we could ask a lot more for him if he proves it over a longer time frame. And we don’t really have a replacement for him
