  1. Mullins would be an excellent defensive striker in the USL. Dwyer also has a chance to be productive there. Maybe TFC should loan those guys to the USL so they can be more productive.
  2. If he was willing to accept the call from Canada he would play in every game for us at this point. He may or may not start every game because he plays the same position as our best players but he would be getting subbed in at least consistently.
  3. They would honestly be much better if they had Eustaquio manning the middle of the team.
  4. Morrow was my son’s favourite player before he passed away. I have a nice framed picture of Morrow and Giovinco giving my wife and I game ball when TFC did a tribute to my son after he died. Seeing the news about Giovinco coming back and Morrow retiring really got me choked up today.
  5. If everything goes according to expectations we should be 48-50 for the January transfer window. That means our entire national team squad will be automatically eligible for a UK work permit. This is fairly big news for the program.
  6. I tuned into the game- saw the lineup and thought “WTF this is stupid” and tuned out again. I don’t understand why the team is rolling out proven mediocre or worse vets and expecting anything other than losses. Wake me up again when they start playing the young guys. This team is just sad.
  7. I think he’s definitely a Camp Poutine guy; but until he gets 1st minutes he’s not going to feature for us yet. He’s coming in at apparently a good pace though.
  8. If Canada qualifies for the WC as the 3rd seed they will likely have 22-25 points in the table. For sure that means another 50-100 points in the Fifa ratings and they will be solidly in the top 35 at least.
  9. I think he’s 5th behind Borjan, Crepeau, St Clair, Breza and Pantemis. For the sake of logistics it’s easier to being in a CPL guy than a guy from League 2, and it’s worthwhile bringing in a younger guy anyways.
  10. I’m not so sure anymore. League 2 isn’t exactly a great level. He’s probably behind the MLS guys at this point.
  11. I’m glad that we’re playing in Mexico 1st and not 3rd match day. We the the opportunity to get acclimated to the Mexico altitude first which is great. The best case scenario is 7 points with a draw, win, win. I think winning both the last 2 legs is the key and important for qualification. We need to get a solid win in Jamaica. 4 points out of this window would be a bit of a disappoint whereas 6 points will put us in the drivers seat for direct qualification.
  12. Besides wanting to play in the World Cup to cap off his career. I think that Atiba really wants to be the first player for the CMNT to reach the century club for caps.
  13. Nobody is saying “poor Sam Piette. Eustaquio came in and took his starting spot”. We all like Piette but we are all happy that Eustaquio is great. Kamal Miller is a good player, but the jump up for Canada from Miller to Tomori would be massive as an example. This is all theoretical but let’s be honest- that jump up could make the difference between leaving the World Cup without a point and winning or drawing a game. edit- just to add. At this moment if he was in our player pool, Tomori would be the 3rd best overall in our player pool. According to Transfermarkt he would be the 5th most valuable player in CONCACAF. Basically at the level or even higher than David. Adding another player of that caliber to our roster would be profound- especially since it’s our weakest spot. We would be in contention with the US and Mexico for top spot in CONCACAF. It would really move the needle.
  14. Tomori would be the best defender in our player pool for Canada (assuming Davies continues to play LW). If we make the World Cup and he’s available we would be foolish to not call up the best defender in our player pool.
  15. You beat me to it Kent. Also of significance- after the October matches if they go as expected, we should crack the top 50. This has implications for the January transfer window for Canadian international players getting work visas in Europe.
  16. I’m quite satisfied with an away draw against the US. The US could have easily won 2-1 and Canada could have also won 2-1. The officiating was pretty fair by CONCACAF standards. At the end of the day that’s what matters. Now back to BMO field and Canada needs to win against El Salvador. 5 points from 3 games would be a solid start for Canada.
  17. I can’t believe that we’re going with a 2 player midfield after the fiasco last game. The midfield is the spot that the we are overmatched vs the US. It’s inconceivable to me that we are planning to be down a player in the middle again. WTF is going on with Herdman’s lineup.
  18. If he never plays for England again, Tomori becomes eligible the week before Qatar 2022 kicks off. If we make it to the World Cup we should all get on the Tomori train. Until then there’s no need to consider him.
  19. Don’t overreact. There’s lots of game left. Laryea for Osorio will right the ship and we still have Hoilett to come off the bench. He’s excellent and tremendously productive for Canada.
  20. He underestimated Honduras and overestimated both Atiba and Eustaquio’s ability to control the midfield 2-3 so put out one too many attackers. Its clear that they miss the 3 player midfield.
  21. I really like both Laryea and Buchanan but one of them has to come out for a central midfielder. We need the stability in the middle to connect our lines and hold possession.
  22. I don’t like the 4-4-2 formation. Being down a central midfielder isn’t doing us any favours. Canada plays best with 3 CM when they can control the middle. It’s just a bit disjointed.
