  1. Creating a stand-alone thread for Justin Smith. (Apologies if there already is one - I couldn't find it.) Class of 2003. Central Mid. Officially signed with Nice today. Potential Gold Cup call up?
  2. This is oddest selection by Herdman. Fraser isn't even in the 18 for Columbus today vs Toronto. Priso and Baldisimo are at least part-time starters and first off the bench players for their teams. Both are in decent form. Both Priso and Baldisimo deserve to be on the roster ahead of Fraser.
  3. Long-expected signing to a homegrown contract by the Whitecaps: https://www.whitecapsfc.com/post/2021/04/23/kamron-habibullah-homegrown
  4. Signed to a homegrown contract by Vancouver Whitecaps. Class of 2004. Central defender. Highly-regarded and a player to watch. https://www.whitecapsfc.com/post/2021/04/23/campagna-homegrown
  5. First time seeing Kennedy as well and while I concur with all of the above, he will need to improve the accuracy of those passes if he hopes to play at a higher level.
  6. I overlooked TMG! Would agree with that grouping - Waterman perhaps top of that group.
  7. The central defender role is going to be the most competitive of all the positions on the senior team. Clearly not yet settled with two sets of starters for each of the WC qualifying games, a different set for the Olympic qualifying, and a number of candidates on the outside looking in. Let's bump this thread to discuss where we rank the current contenders: Steven Vitoria - clearly Herdman's first choice; regular starter in Portugal top division Kamal Miller - looking like they want Kamal to be the left-sided starter; will be starter at Montreal? Ricardo Ferreira - could b
  8. Nicely done. I would drop Hojabrpour and Hernandez from the top 10 and promote Ben Paton and Steven Simpson based on their placement on the prelim Olympics qualification roster.
  9. There's actually no reason Vancouver couldn't host games. We are totally set up for it - stadium, practice facilities, hotels, transportation infrastructure. Really not that costly in the end and I always thought there would be a lot of pressure from the business community and the city to get this done. But doesn't look like that will happen now. It's too bad, really.
  10. Whitecaps planning to use Bair more as a pure striker this coming season https://theprovince.com/sports/soccer/mls/vancouver-whitecaps/bair-hopes-canada-call-up-will-kickstart-2021-campaign-with-whitecaps?utm_term=Autofeed&utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1610321493
  11. Great list - thanks for updating it @MM3/MM2/MM Hope we can see more of these players in action this coming season. Continue to hear strong buzz about Habibullah but we will know more if the Whitecaps sign him this year and get him some game action.
  12. I continue to be impressed every time I see him. He holds the ball under pressure very well and somehow manages to make a long pass that unlocks the opponents’ defense. High degree of difficulty under pressure. I’m guessing MDS doesn’t totally trust him defensively yet - he sometimes looks slow to read a play. He can learn that.
  13. At this point, there is no danger of him being capped by either Chile or Canada.
