  1. This is on Vanney. Takes out both CB’s and our 2 most skilled players. Leaves Delbado out for 90 and Bradley who is recovering from an injury instead of giving Fraser a run out. Inexcusable to give up 2 late goals to a team down to 10 men. Will say there could have been a foul called on Birnbaum going through Zavaleta’s back for the initial header on the Brilliant goal but TFC never should have been in that position where 1 iffy call could cost you the game. On another note Richie needs to stop acting like every foul against him is an act of overt aggression. He gets in the face of everyone who fouls him and it diminishes his accomplishments. Teams will start baiting him if they don’t already.
  2. I think we also need to keep in mind that we are judging the player, not necessarily the league. There are always guys playing in a league below their level, as well as above. In the end if he is playing well he deserves a call up to a camp where you can compare him to the other CMNT players. He could be a nice addition, or he could be a bust, but better to judge him against our squad rather than solely on the league he plays in. Too bad he is not a cb and on that note love to see Kennedy called in to camp as well to see what he can do.
  3. Both Tesho and Chapman came on as substitutes.
  4. Cav is better than Larin at this point. Happy that Larin had a good year in Belgium and if he continues it when the madness ends then there will be more of a debate. But right now if we are starting 1 striker up top it would be Cav with David under neath
  5. I think it is more along the lines of us being his only option if he wants to play internationally. No way he plays for Portugal. Of course with his injury history he may want to focus only on club and do everything to he can to stay in the lineup if he starts playing regularly.
  6. You and me my friend. My son knows we don’t call him by his proper surname but the one that came out in anger at a game watching him lose the ball repeatedly while Oso and others more talented rode the pine. He has since been referred to as Delbado and nothing else. Think Vanney is ok but his preference for pets like the striker who couldn’t score, Spencer, and Delbado infuriate at times.
  7. Henry is in the lineup for Herdman without a doubt. He took him during a window when he was suspended and going to miss a game cause of his leadership. Herdman will be starting Doneil in every meaningful game going forward until someone leaps over him in the Siz’s eyes. Let’s hope Ferreira stays healthy and plays regularly. That would end Vitoria’s run in the team (and I rate him) but he is too slow to play against the faster forwards.
  8. No offence but if he isnt a defender he would have to start lighting up the MLS to get considered for our squad. We have a plethora of options up front and a third string forward in mls is not going to cut it.
  9. The man is a national treasure. Here’s hoping he still plays meaningful games and if he chooses not to that we can have a proper send off game when all this crap ends.
  10. Does he even matter as anything more than depth if he should decided to play for Canada? We are so strong up front that Akinola may have missed his window to be a central part of our team if that opportunity ever actually existed.
  11. The insights continue to amaze and confound.
  12. Eustaquio is a player. He is a great addition and will force Piette to get better or lose his spot. And If Fraser ever gets to play, (flipping Covid,) we will have very solid quality at CDM. And if Hutch gives us another year or 2... just need a couple of CB’s to step up.
  13. The sad part of this situation is that if he gets healthy and plays any significant minutes he is immediately in the mix for the CMNT. Here’s hoping he gets healthy and decides to represent the maple leaf!
  14. Usually it’s good practice to avoid the group of death regardless of year or tournament.
  15. CPL is to raise the level of Canadian soccer, not other countries. Strict limit on foreign players to ensure only skilled players are signed from abroad and eventually increase the Canadian content as development permits.
  16. True. Picked up the red there prior to the US match for 100. Later while being forced to go to winners with my wife, found the training jacket (track top) for 49 bucks and had to spend 10 minutes explaining why this was such a good deal and I needed to add it to the collection. At the time they were 135 on the Canada site. Cant wait for a cool weather wise day to where it to a game when we finally get to attend.
  17. Don’t worry, he is/will. I’ll give him one thing, at least there are more little dots beside all my unread threads every time I check in now which is less often since Covid. So I guess thanks to TGAA for that.
  18. Almost 400 staff? Does anyone have a rough idea how many the CSA employs? I am assuming our number of employees would be insignificant compared to that.
  19. Yah. Thanks Vic. That was a massive F up. Probably thought he was doing us s favour but didn’t know his own organizations rules.
  20. Says on the Canada Soccer page roster would be released March 11th. I would guess there are lots of last minute negotiations right up until the Concacaf deadline to submit.
  21. Delgado is constantly praised for his engine but technically he is much weaker than Osorio and probably even Fraser. He makes a few atrocious passes every game and gives the ball away easily. Hopefully Fraser gets to start in the CDM soon and we can have Oso Poz and Gallardo?playing under Jozy with Liam pulling the strings.
  22. Jakovic and Kaye starting for LAFC vs Union. Both off to solid starts.
  23. Really hope he gets his **** together. He appeared to have a huge upside but right now he needs to listen to his former world class striker coach and put in the work to become the player most thought he was capable of.
  24. Now I am in. Thanks for the efforts!
  25. It was an incredible ending. I was hoping for the upset. I guess the reason it didn’t get a great deal of traction in here was due to the minimal number of Canadians playing.😉
