    Why do we need him to be an attacker? This generation is strong up front but we have no elite fullbacks. Davies could become one. 
    Besides, Liverpool's success this year should show you the importance of the modern fullback. They're part of the attack.

    He's played every minute in the league so far as a teenager. His talent is obvious but he's still prone to mistakes. I rate him highly as a prospect

    I really don’t think we’re selfish enough as fans sometimes. I can certainly understand a player moving to a much higher level to improve their careers or move on to the next level. That helps the national team. Otherwise I would rather see them playing at home. A player like Zanatta would have more influence on the game in Canada by playing in the CPL than he’ll have by playing in D2 Scotland for another season. Surely that’s important too

    Fuck off. You can't completely misinterpret a post and then call it delusional. That's not a comparison I made.
    My point was simply that a player returning to North America is not stuck playing in North America for the rest of their careers. That mentality needs to die. Players move back and forth all the time. Just look at Straith or Edgar or Fredy Montero

    I’ve never understood the attitude that playing in North America ruins your shot at playing in Europe. That’s the exact pathway that we’re trying to develop.

    Very interesting. It's nice to know their is a mechanism to fill the squads out. I was wondering how they would manage with such small squads. Is this the first time that something like this has happened in CPL?
    Also, it's great to see a relationship develop between the two clubs. The Highlanders have some strong players this year, and they've moved quite a few on to pro teams in the past.

    Just a quick look at the website will give you a good picture.  Sportsnet has a CPL Molinaro article, headlines about the last games and on the pull down menu CPL is in the number 2 spot after EPL.  Almost nothing on TSN.  The broadcasts have mentioned it a few times, but they are not giving it any real attention.

    I think it's still too small a sample size to be expecting a transfer fee at this point, but if Borges continues to impress he'll certainly garner some attention abroad. He already has some experience in Europe, and must have an EU passport? I hope that clubs are careful with these early transfers away from the league as they will set the precedent for future sales. Let's make sure that the players are truly prepared to move up, and then find the right situation for them.

    I can’t watch the video at the moment, but our attack to start that match was Haber, Ricketts, Teibert, and de Guzmán with Johnson and Piette as CMs. I have to hope that any keeper we start now will now have a little more offensive support from the current squad than Borjan did here. Fingers crossed

    Thanks for sharing that. You can't really get the context for those picks without watching that clip.
    This is Dunfield's starting eleven for the opening match, not his ideal starting line-up, and to be fair he justifies those picks. He cites the recent injuries of Adekugbe and Henry as reasons they may not be match sharp, while rationalizing his choices for Kaye and Hutchinson in a way that makes sense.
    In midfield, he likes Osorio and Arfield as the quarterbacks who can feed the ball to the attack. I see nothing wrong with that assessment. Piette picks himself really.
    Up top, Dunfield thinks Cavallini is more suited for the Mexico match. He said David has been playing up top for Gent, but I question his accuracy on that. We have seen the line ups (though I haven't personally watched a Gent match since he sipposedly switched to midfield). He also wasn't accurate on Hoilett (he's scored 3 prem goals this year, not 1).
    In goal, he seems to think it's a good way to get Crepeau action and reward him. In no way does he think Borjan is number 2. Talks about it as a way to get the transition process underway though.
