    Club Linesman reacted to Gian-Luca in TFC 2021 Season   
    Glad that Perez is just an interim coach as he is just way too conservative. Everyone in our section of the stands was shocked when half time began and the same 11 came out on the field. Either Perez still thinks it is 1986 and he can only make 2 subs a match or he has a two sub maximum written into his contract. How Endoh lasted the whole match is beyond me, he couldn’t put Shaffelburg out there for even 5 minutes to run in behind defenders and give the opponent something else to worry about besides Soteldo so he doesn’t get triple teamed the whole match? Even though Jacob might over hit 50% of his crosses just having him making runs in behind would still free up Soteldo a bit to make him more effective. Instead NY knew they had nothing else to worry about on the right side of TFC’s attack and just focused on Soteldo with Pozeulo having an off day in part because there wasn’t  anyone other than Soteldo to pass the ball to. To use 2 subs again (and one only due to injury) on 3 days rest is suicidal when you can make up to 5.

    Ralph has now moved ahead of Dom Dwyer and Carlos Ruiz on the all-time TFC goal scoring list.

    It was lucky that the rebound fell to him to slot it in first-time instead of say Delgado (who would have taken a shot so wide that it would have gone out for a NYRB throw-in) or Endoh who would have taken two touches first before trying to shoot.

    He really struggled in the first half. After his goal he came alive and was a difference maker - was good to see.

    It feels wrong to dream about him being one of the injury replacements, but I can't help it.

    Is it on the record that he "unnecessarily forced players for this competition"?  I haven't seen any evidence of that.  In fact, I've seen the opposite.
    I find that surprising for someone who considered Miller "weak" against Haiti but then "sharp" against the US.  Might lead one to think that you learned something about him.  Maybe that he is a solid defensive optionshould we run into injuries now that he has played with the rest of the back line .
    Also:
    - Eustaquio has some offensive prowess and maybe should be pushed forward a bit but he needs more support in the middle.
    - The entire back line needs to work on concentration from minute 1, particularly those in the wingback role.
    - Still need to work on cutting through when the opposition is lying deep.
    - Cavallini/Larin partnership needs some work before its ready for primetime.
    - Johnston is solid defensively but moderately suspect going forward.
    - Pasher, despite solid club form, needs a few more reps with the team before he understands his role.
    I'm sure there's more.

    Agreed. Theo should be getting some minutes. He’s cracked a PL lineup, let him show what he can do against a proper team. He’s passed the minnow test, no reason not to give him an opportunity, especially since our attack is depleted.

    I don't know if Theo should have gotten more minutes or not but one has to wonder was it worth him missing preseason with Wolves to sit on our bench?

    How anyone can complain about Herdman at this point is beyond reason.
    I was once in that camp, but have changed that tune drastically due to what I’ve seen.
    He’s brought on more coaches for help, and has added a game day earpiece to receive extra help. We’ve changed/tested our formation several times, landing on what I’ve been banging the drum for in the 352 - as I still think it suits our crop of players. We had an 8 game win streak snapped against a USMNT that cleaaaarrrly didn’t deserve that win.
     If there’s any talk of a firing, let it be after WCQ.

    To go on a bit of a tangent, I have really liked what I've seen from Pasher in MLS and for Canada so far, losing Larin and Akinola gives him the opportunity to show more, and I'm all up for it. I have a feeling that if given a bigger role, Pasher will pull through and surprise a few, he's been a late bloomer, but so far in his career he has managed to excel at every level he's played at, and it would be such a great come back story for a guy who a year ago probably never imagined being inside the CMNT picture.

    Personally, I think they definitely should call him.  We can put out a decent starting line up without Larin and Akinola but we would have pretty much no strikers off the bench.  That's an issue.  I also don't think Hoilett is in top condition to be forced to run 90 minutes and possibly extra time.  Can a club turn this request down as its a confederation championship?  I don't think so.  The player may say no but Akindele has been on record as saying he would always accept a call.
    He definitely would be a good addition.

    Given the way our defence can seem pressured and Herdman’s preference for the 3-5-2, I would like to see both Piette and Eustaquio on the field at the same time if we go that route to make sure we don’t get exposed defensively again   
    I am thinking something like this.

    This Suriname/Guadalupe match is fun.  One-one at the half, Guadalupe down to 10 men after a VAR consult (there's VAR at this tournie?) and both teams have hit the frame twice?  Weeee!!!!!

    Seems really bizarre that these final group games are coming two days after the previous. At the very least, they could have had games yesterday as well. It creates a two day(!!) advantage for Canada and USA in the QF.  Has this advantage happened in any other tournaments?

    These threads are going to be interesting with 5 more days until we play again.  We have been getting treated with constant games but in this current down time most discussions appear to be turning into pissing matches.  Here’s hoping everybody has a great rest of the week and that we all experience an amazing game Sunday with our boys coming out on top!

    Watching his reaction immediately after the play brought back sad personal memories of two blown ACLs for me (each knee).  Even though I could walk off the field with the second one like he did, I knew it was blown the moment it happened .  He probably knew that immediately with his knee, too.  I wish him a very speedy and full recovery.

    At this point, when others are suggesting we could have called Elva or Shaff to play striker this gold cup..Ricketts looks pretty good to me.   Akendele would be my first call though.

    Ricketts doesn’t get the respect he deserves IMO.   Sure there are lots of minnow goals- but every Canadian striker in history has padded their stats with those.  
    The fact is that he has shown up when called and played hard every time - and gotten enough goals to still be 5th on our all time scoring chart (ahead of Bunbury).   I don’t think he deserves the shade he gets around here sometimes.

    That’s too bad.  While I would always prefer a Canadian player to land in CPL over USL, a stint in any lower division would be an improvement at this point.  Unless the Montreal brass plan to play him (and you never know, I still think he had a solid Olympic qualifying campaign) another season of watching from the sidelines will be unfortunate.   Fingers crossed things work out for him though.  Still rooting for the guy.

    Word on the street is Talba is finally back in training with CF Montreal after a long recovery from injury.  Would love to see him loaned out to a CPL club, to get minutes and shake off the rust.

    Also, further to that, if I remember correctly most were worried about our top players getting chopped down by the brutes from Martinique and Haiti.
    Davies - Injured in training.  Larin and Akinola - Injured against the US.
    Ergo, let's stop training and playing top teams.
    Fact of the matter: shit happens.
