    Aird25 got a reaction from toontownman in Jonathan David   
    I don’t think he’s anywhere near the form that he can play at to be honest. He’s lost as many duels as he’s made passes tonight. He can play in a much more free flowing system, but that’s not how he’s being used. Instead he’s battling CBs with his back to goal

    Kudos to Hansi Flick for taking Davies off just as David was about to start for Lille so we could all switch streams. Now there's a coach who truly understands the needs of Canadian soccer fans.

    Pacific built a stadium, a training facility and ran a downtown store in an extremely expensive city. I have to think their operating costs have been very high. It’s been pretty quiet from the club lately so I love to see continued interest and commitment in the project

    Westhills being renamed Starlight Stadium after ~$150,000 a year investment from Toronto company Starlight. 85% to the club, 15% to the city. I wish it was someone local but the revenue should help. 
    It’s a 5 year deal with two 5 year options. That feels like a hell of a long term deal compared to the 12 month deals we offer our players. Let’s hope  it works out

    We should stop equating fiscal conservatism with owners being borderline broke.

    3 wins and they're all still in it at the top. Strong performances by all our boys too. David with a stoppage time winner, Larin with an assist, Davies 59/59 passing, Hutch with a goal line clearance and all round good game

    Expansion could help the other teams survive though. 10 teams is more interesting than 8, and it may mean less travel for some games. Getting into Quebec and the Lower Mainland would be huge. But yes, the pandemic couldn't have come at a more difficult time for the new league, and survival is key.

    Pretty harsh comparison and take away from that match. He was phenomenal outside of that play. Plus the ball was flicked at the front post and it was a crazy spot to put a header on goal from

    Great finish by David, so glad he played 90.  
    Frustrating part was..... They showed David's heat map at one point in the 2nd half and commentator said, "yes he's running all over the place but never at the right time, he's just making the wrong runs to the wrong places."  I was like WTF have you been watching??? 
    Even on the winning goal his reflex was the charge the net as soon as Xeka hit it.  He's making all the right runs, Lille just plays backward.
    Another translated comment was, "another great unselfish pass by Bamba to find David but it was intercepted".  Really? 
    Hopefully that goal gets some respect.

    "We made two mistakes and now we're going home with no points like idiots" - hilarious post game translated quote from a Reims player interviewed after the game (right after David was interviewed).
    Not sure about the "idiots" part, but what he said was true. All 3 goals in this game came from errors, although the keeper spill on David's goal was the least egregious of the three. Glad for David though because he could have had a hattrick of assists in this game while his teammates rarely return the favour. How unsurprising then that he should score without being set up by his teammates for the goal.

    I’m starting to think Gent’s wingers were just phenomenal at finding David’s late runs. He takes up the same spaces so often, but I can’t think of a single time that his run has actually been picked out since the move

    I thought Baldisimo was excellent last season too. To be honest I don't see either Noah or Zach in the starting XI much, unless they improve. Both are excellent depth pieces though, and I'd be sad to see either of them go.
    Not much new information in this article from today, but it certainly doesn't sound like this required international player rule is true.
