    Larin for the home USA NL game last year declined the call-up due to wanting to stay with his team. So it does still happen under Herdman.
    Avoiding calling players vs agreeing to let them be is two different things. And Herdman will make sure it is sooo eloquently worded in a way that it's the best decision for everybody.

    I am not overlooking Bermuda. I want Arfield there. I also want to keep Gerrard on our good side, if possible. I do not want him pressuring Arfield to stay at Rangers. Gerrard probably has more influence than Herdman, truth be told.
    You give some, you get some. That is how compromise works. If that means we lose Arfield for March and get him for the Ocho, it may be a deal worth making. Perhaps we could even get Arfield for Gold Cup as well, that is my thinking. 
    I don't think Herdman has gotten this far without learning how to negotiating with other people. He will do all he can to get his best squad for March, but remember he is a calculated person. If he has to drop Arfield now to get him later, he may just do that. 
    Context is important. Rangers have gone through a lot in recent years. They need to win the SPL more than ever. I am not a Rangers fan per se, I am just putting myself in Gerrard's shoes. They have a narrow lead on Celtic. Arfield is off to a fantastic start. He is needed and Gerrard needs that trophy just as badly as the club does. All signs point to Gerrard asking to keep Arfield. Is Herdman really going to tell him to get stuffed because we need him versus Bermuda? I doubt it.

    Clubs don’t have the choice to release a player for international duty. It’s typically the CSA and the player agreeing to have the player stay with their club/not call them up.
    I personally like the idea of the teams being a mixture of “a” and “b” players. It will allow a full assessment of the actual player pool in preparation for the potential Ocho where depth will be crucial and put to the test.

    I hate to always be the guy....but how Millar can be considered that high up when he's not playing professional games at all this year. Does this mean Corbeanu has worked his way into the depth from playing and performing with the U23's at Wolves?

    For me Tajon has surpassed those guys in the "depth chart" - because you know, he's playing consistently, performing and showing great potential.

    I like that comparison. Also funny that it was Bruce Arena who said that about Dempsey. Would be curious to know his thoughts on the comparison.
    For me he has to be #3 on our winger depth chart behind Davies and Hoilett for now. Millar is by all accounts doing well for Liverpool u23s and can hopefully get a loan but if we were to play tomorrow I'm going with Tajon off the bench.

    Which is true.  Right now, Chase Claypool is having an outstanding start to his rookie NFL season in Pittsburgh.  If he keeps this up, he's in the running big time, perhaps more so if he was a GTA guy instead of a Fraser Valley one,  but still a serious contender.

    Canadians in MLS Update:
    Hard to compare with last season given the shortened and compact season but for perspective:
    2020 season has seen 32 Canadian or Canadian eligible outfield players compared to 30 last season.
    2020 season has seen 5 Canadian or Canadian eligible goalkeepers compared to 2 last season.
    Hoping for a couple more young academy players to get some playing time as the season comes to an end.

    I have cooled my jets a bit and find myself more optimistic on David this morning. 
    What you say is true. He did take a big step up. The fact of the matter is that his team is currently first in Ligue 1. He is playing a lot of minutes. He has been misfiring on his chances, but now he is getting more chances and that is a good sign. He will score sooner or later. Once he gets one, the pressure will be off and he will get more. 
    In the meantime, his team is chugging along and he is contributing with his smart movement. We have a 20 year old starter for one of the best teams in France. That is still unheard of by historical standards. No need for David and his fans to panic. He is still just 7 games into his Lille career. It will come with time.
    Even if he struggles in front of goal for the entire year, if he plays a big role and the team wins a trophy that will be huge for his development.
