    - No arfield, based on my opinion. 
    - Hutch if he wants to play can switch out Kaye. 
    - RCB is up for grabs.

    Piette for me, has shown his game has reached it's best. What does that mean? You know what you are getting from him. He's going to win tackles, protect the belly and thats pretty much it. Henry is seeming to have trouble to put him in the squad due to the options. And thats kinda my issue with claims for him to be a starter, it's the same thing we see in the MNT. There's better options. 
    We simply need more. We need to play with confidence, grit, and have a mindset that we are going to win games, and not that we have to defend or be reactive. Having Kaye who although has a better offensive side to his game than Piette, his defensive game is comparable (check the stats), he's a pure box-to-box midfielder in the exact mold of Hutchinson. Pair him with Eustaquio who is primarily a CDM also a ball winner, wins tackles, anddddd can spray passes and get them to striker and we have a strong middle pair.
    Okay people don't think we could play 3-4-3 because of our defence.....but even in a 4-2-3-1, I still don't want to see Piette starting. We need to go for leads, and then look to close out games (when Piette would come on). I don't care what anyone say's we have the personnel to be dangerous in Concacaf, it just depends on the way we setup.

    Interesting.  Not very long ago, a player of his pedigree and level would be a shoo-in starter for our full NT.  Now, despite starting for a top flight Scottish club, he is hoping to make our Olympic team!

    Just an update based on some internet work
    His team has started this SPL season well, winning 2 from 2.  He started in both. Went 65' the first game and 79' in the second.  
    Going just by highlights, it looks like he was starting with some license to get forward and then either pulled back or replaced when they were trying to protect a lead. 
    He drew the winning penalty in the first game with a decent run and okay header in the box and should have had an assist in the second game if his teammate finished better. 
     
    Look for #24 in these. 
     Also a local Scottish paper piece about him want to play in the Olympics for us written between the two games.

    Can't forget guys like Harry Patton who seems to be a starter now in the Scottish Premiership. Lots of MF options coming through as well.

    He'll force one onto the bench. 😉
    I was reading somewhere that in the next two years, if Canada gets to the Octo, we'll be playing between 23-27 meaningful games, including the Gold Cup. We'll need all of our midfielders to be able to slot in and out at times, and depending on club fixtures we may not have certain players. Kaye will probably start some games, and not others.  I think he is definitely a good choice as a starter, but I also think that what I've seen of Eustaqio over the last while means he could also start.
    Personally, the fact that we can name seven or eight midfielders as potential starters over the next two years gives me a lot of confidence that Canada can get to Qatar. We have depth.

    I think this becomes more debatable as time goes on. Arfield is starting less often with Rangers now.
    The flip side of being a veteran is that you eventually begin to slow down (unless your name is Atiba, apparently..)

    I prefer a 3-4-3 cause we don't have a real cam, our fullbacks can get higher up the pitch and Davies will be best used as a lwb so there's no need to start adekube who isn't great. Our centerbacks are best in a 3.

    Piette is a solid CMNT player.  For what he is usually asked to do he is tremendous and deserves a great deal of appreciation for his efforts and commitment.  Don’t think he is overrated.  
    But he does not have the skill set of Eustaquio and I would think that for most important games in the future, Eustaquio will be the starter at the DM position and Piette will come off the bench if needed in the destroyer role to finish out the game.

    While I agree Piette is a tad overrated. You really see his worth in dog fights like that first US-Canada game.

    With the exception of Larin, I would prefer this over the 3-4-3 anytime.
    Also agree with the other post. Piette should not be considered a starter and I really think that conversation should end. I personally think he's still a tad overrated among Canada fans.

    I think Kaye and Eustaquio would be a fine pair. I imagine Eustaquio in the mold of Autesta. 
    The question is, who is the Blessing? 
    I do not know if Osorio has the same energy, but he sure does get around the park and is a better footballer overall...plus Oso and Eustaquio seemed to link up well against the USA.
