  1. 1 case on Vancouver Island over half a dozen in BC, probably more on the way. As much as I think the risk is still low... I don't see how any country especially a country like T&T, with 0 cases come here to play. I hope I am wrong.
  2. The 3-5-2 is an interesting one for sure, I don't think we are quite there yet for the CMNT but perhaps. It can actually morph into a quite a solid defensive formation (5 at the back) but as mentioned above it can take years to imply and learn it properly. I was mostly commenting how I like Davies in the LW/LWB spot on my Fifa team but even at Bayern in a back 4 he still has quite a bit of freedom to roam forward. I think against minnows on the CMNT even if we set up with a back 4 our FBs will be able to go pretty high up the pitch in any type of 4-3-3.
  3. Just catching up on the thread.... Mixed feelings on Tefler but I am glad he is going to have an international footy career. Agree with the majority of the sentiment, hopefully it does not come back to haunt us, in essentially 2 must win games. In turn, have to give credit to the ZBG cap, which would have been around the same time Tefler could have been capped. I am happy ZBG is Canadian and chose to play for us. ZBG could have easily played for Haiti and Haiti has been essentially rolling out mostly domestic players at RB. On paper, RB appears to be one of their weakest positions so ZBG likely would have been a starter for Haiti for a very long time and he can be lethal when used properly.
  4. One of my favorite positions for him ( which I use on My Fifa Ultimate team, haha)... Is Davies as a LW in a 3-5-2. It was nice seeing him higher up the pitch on the weekend. It's amazing how much more accurate and precise his crosses and passing has become in under 12 months. His 1v1 defending has also gotten so good, incredible work ethic and in an excellent environment. It's still incredible to think he could comfortably play LB, LW or RW at this high of a level. Really cheering for Davies and Bayern to have a deep CL run. As a massive CMNT and a huge footy fan in general, I think it's simply incredible to have a Canadian play a significant role in CL contender.
  5. So when can I file my application to the Court of Arbitration of Sport that forces El Salvador to play us in June for all the marbles? Joking not joking. https://www.fifa.com/about-fifa/who-we-are/legal/court-of-arbitration-for-sport/
  6. I completely agree with you, fortunately I think in the same article he also called Klopp "brilliant". Just because he "is not a fan" does not mean he can't play for them :), plus opinions always change.
  7. From the man who often wears the captain's armband for the first team, that is simply the icing on the cake for his debut. Real recognize real. Enjoy the evening Dad and congrats to Liam on his debut.
  8. Awesome, thx. Pretty impressive they rolled him out the full 90 already. How's he liking the training environment so far? I'm sure there will be some hi cups along his development but man WB must be super excited about the ceiling potential in the right environment he could have. As someone else posted, how did WB find him/get in contact with him? did he go on trial first?... I know it's personal etc so any information you feel and can share is totally cool. We are all probably more just curious compared to anything. Pass on the best and well wishes to him from all us V's, we are definitely rooting for him.
  9. What an awesome opportunity. Going from CIS ball and L10 to u23 with a Bundesliga club, wow. Don't know much about Werder Bremen but I'll be hoping they survive relegation. I am going to assume he will be in an excellent training environment also. What's exciting is as a CB he can have many more years before he hits his prime years in the right environment.
  10. You don't just use a #4 draft pick without a plan. Really hopes he makes the most of this incredible opportunity. So far it seems like he has, highlights looks great, all the best to him.
  11. Agree with this one, you know Klopp wants the double BPL & CL titles. The point record, though awesome, is extra cherry.
  12. for the sake of David's transfer value, just became a massive Sander Berge fan.
  13. Case by case decision on to stay or go everytime. Comes down to both what the club/organization/coach want from him, combined with what is best for the player. We can go back and forth on this topic, just look at the Davies thread. The board was almost equally divided on should he stay at Bayern or should he go on loan at Bayern, and that was the summer transfer window 8 months ago. Not an exact example but gives you the picture of "case by case". Me personally.... I think both could work, whichever one happens, I hope he crushes it and works out for him.
  14. Will be funny when we make the Hex, and El Salvador cry foul to CONCACAF/Fifa saying the Iceland friendly was suppose to be a "training match".
