  1. Was thinking he used to play at left back in the past. I clicked through some 2017 game sheets, found him at LB as suspected in one game, LW in another game. So ya would have expected to chip in a few goals.
  2. Looked up results for past few Suwon matches, Henry was not present in any lineups. Searched for some injury news and found that he suffered another knee injury in November and is estimated to be out until May. https://www.transfermarkt.us/doneil-henry/verletzungen/spieler/157907
  3. I was refreshing all day and staying off this forum to avoid spoilers. Tried popping in to read the senior team thread but the Sunday u24 match title caught my eye. Doesn’t seem I missed out on much by finishing the 2nd half. but ya 3pm next day and still no replay that’s crazy. Can find torrents of tv shows 1hour after airing.
  4. Yes I think at 73 million USD. But its not looking like a good deal at the moment. The Davies fee is looking like an absolute robbery,
  5. Aston Villa paid Genk a fee of 22 million Euro for Moraes a 22 year old Brazilian forward that had 17 Goals in 48 Matches and 13 in 44 the year before. This winter window they also paid 8.5 million Euro to Genk again for a 27 year old attacker that has 10 goals in 28 matches, 32 in 51 year before. David is at 22 goals in 37 matches, already surpassing Moraes production. Granted there are of course some non goal scoring aspects to consider but the sort of baseline from Belgium would have David given his age and production at minimum 35 million Euro. Another consideration is he has onl
  6. A side effect of this new ridiculous way to qualify for the Hex will likely be no team close to the cutoff line (3-10) will want to schedule away friendlies that put them at any disadvantage, especially against other Hex-potential rivals. Thats why I dont think nations like Panama or Trinidad would accept accept a friendly in Canada. Nor would they accept a low drawing US based match like the January camp. I feel the most likely out of the list above is 2 matches vs Antigua and Barbuda in Florida.
  7. Jamaica is a very good team when they can pull in their full England contingent. But they only show traditionally only show up on big occasions. For a March friendly they will get at best a B team, even more likely a C team with NA based players. So if they agreed to a friendly would be a good bet.
  8. How can you choose to reclassify a friendly as a training match days before though? That doesn't seem fair. Should be whatever was scheduled as, training match or friendly stays. Way too easy to game point this way. Oh we have injuries and cant field our best A team Training Match! Oh Concacaf is stupid and is now gifting us the Hex Training Matc If the request was actually denied. its more likely Iceland wanted to keep it as an offial Friendly and not that FIFA denied the request.
  9. James made the first huge mistake, then Crepeau should have smothered that ball. Godinho mistimed a crazy front of goal challenge, it was the least of the 3 mistakes. Goal is on James first of all then Crepeau 2nd.
  10. Next official window need to schedule 4 friendlies, make ES come out of hiding.
  11. All the best to Doneil I have been a big supporter since he signed and made his way with TFC. But man he needs to eliminate the lapses in concentration for gals against and stupid red cards.
  12. Vanney din't bring in Laryea to be a midfielder he saw him as a RB/RWB. I can't remember a single penetrating pass from Laryea through the lines this year, he would be a terrible midfielder hence why Orlando never gave him a chance. Out wide he drew penalties running into the box and delivered dangerous byline crosses. Vanney saw that potential when Orlando did not.
  13. MLS staff writer Matthew Doyle believes Inter Miami plans on converting Norman to a CB ... please lets hope so. We saw how successful this type of re-training worked for Laryea going from attacking mid to RB. Hopefully those at Inter Miami have the same eye for talent as Vanney and Norman can develop into a quality defender. https://www.mlssoccer.com/post/2019/11/20/armchair-analyst-state-miami-nashville-rosters-post-expansion-draft • Did they get David Norman Jr. with the intention of converting him to center back? He's a big, competitive kid who's a pretty good central mid
  14. Not to be over dramatic but I'm almost at my breaking point like what am I doing to myself spending my Saturday night watching El Salvador vs Montserrat at the edge of my seat? Surely there's a more enjoyable way to spend my scarce free time? And even if Canada managed to stumble their way into a final 6 position we all know they would land in 5th with a final game result which saw them blow a sure top 3 finish .
  15. How fair is it that 2 nations playing in league B get to walk into the world cup qualifying round while 8 others who have rolled them over get no chance at it.
  16. Was getting nervous watching the Mex vs Pan game that panama could somehow manage to eek out a result but now Mex back on top. Pan would need another gift miracle goal at this point.
  17. Davies has kicked it up another gear since the last times we saw him. he is developing exponentially at Bayern. he seemed quicker and way more confident in dribbling past not 1 but sometimes 3 opponents. In the past he used to knock the ball forward then try to run on, now he is controlling the ball and rounding the defenders. Crazy he is still only 18
  18. Finally a result that might light a fire. I remember the Honduras away game thinking that was the chance to get Hoillet and J DeGuzman on board . No need to remind everyone how that turned out.
  19. Again, they likely offered to sell it back over to the major networks at a price that didn't make sense such as 1 Billion Dollars as the Dr Evil gif above mentions.
  20. I ranted about him being a snake oil salesman always talking but never delivering the goods. Well tonight he had the team play with incredible intensity and passion. I have never seen anything like that. He's learned and adapted from the Haiti loss and so have the players. Kudos to Herdman he managed perfectly.
  21. How credible is that? Twitter is not exactly a top source. Why would OneSoccer pay for the rights to Nations League then turn around and hand over broadcast rights to their competitors? More likely the offer was give us x$ and we will release this game to you where x$ was a decent amount.
  22. Osorio was great as well, was up and down the pitch cutting off passing lanes then jumping up field helping unlock the US defense. Everyone was pretty much great this was the most complete/focused I have ever seen Canada perform.
  23. Maybe should start scheduling some damn friendlies instead of relying on other nations to drop points. Maybe be proactive for once. Its insane that beating a minnow nets the same points as drawing the 20th ranked. But that's the game and so far Canada Soccer has done nothing to go on offense and win the 6th spot.
  24. Jonathan David has a good intellect. Not sure if the video is edited in a certain way but this 18 yo has more logical sense than the head coach. Which is at the same time promising for the future of the CMNT and scary for the present.
  25. Officially signed with Cavalry FC https://www.sportsnet.ca/soccer/cpls-cavalry-fc-signs-ex-whitecap-goalkeeper-carducci/
