  1. Lots of good comments on here. As someone mentioned before its less then an hour drive away from Gent. The transition of not having to go far, and speaking his French will help a lot. Ligue 1 may not get tons of love, but its still a big step up. This is an excellent stepping stone for him. If Lille are willing to pay record fees like this, he will not be riding the bench! He will have a lot of pressure on him, and if he succeeds after a year or two he can probably join a top team as a big signing. Hes such a humble kid, this seems like a move that would work well for him. Initially I just wanted him to join a big name club, but the more I think about it this move could be very smart in the long run. Great times for Canada, and our golden generation!
  2. If Breza starts getting some starts in, does he surpass Crepeau? Borjan is at the top of his game and still looks like the #1 atm
  3. If he starts getting some Serie A minutes, how will he rank in GK depth chart for Canada?
  4. Lille rumours seem strange to me. Just as strange as Arsenal. David has been pretty vocal on numerous occasions about wanting a move to Germany. I suppose it comes down to who will pay Gent the most though. I feel like David will get the German move he wanted in the end, maybe he stays at Gent until it comes to fruition. What do I know though..
  5. I really thought Klopp would use the remaining games to take a look at young guys like Liam, and maybe he will. He may just be putting the media in their place. In my head id rather play young guys then risk injuring one of the first team players for points that don't matter. Klopp seems to want to maintain the strongest momentum he can instead. Cant fault him, he knows what hes doing! If Liam gets some minutes, he will really have earned it!
  6. He sounds like a great kid in that interview. Cant wait to see how he develops. He is pretty pumped to play for Canada.
  7. He will likely be going out on loan again soon. It seems his chances at Chelsea are getting slim with the addition of Timo Werner.
  8. Cap tie ASAP haha Show him the Canadian love on social media
  9. Marc Overmars rules out David for Ajax. Although we pretty much already knew this was the case. http://www.football-oranje.com/overmars-rules-out-signing-david-and-thinks-onana-could-stay-at-ajax/
  10. I don't think a thread is going to change the course of anyone's careers lol. A bunch of anonymous people chatting about potential is pretty normal here.
  11. We have our first real superstar in Davies. David looks like he's on the verge of joining the superstar ranks. Ballou was once our major hope but flopped. Millar could make the big jump very soon. These guys have been the core of our golden generation (on paper). Who do you all predict is the next Canadian to enter the biggest stages of world football? Is there more talent in our youth system that has this much potential? Who are they? Anyone want to predict what we will look like in a couple of years? Obviously nobody can predict the future, but it could be fun to try, many of you have great insight.

  13. Herdman is ready to help
  14. https://mobile.twitter.com/FOXSoccer/status/1265393449148137472 The FC Bayern roadrunner! New nickname

  16. hahaha, yeah we dont want our superkid playing with CR7! What a waste that would be eh
  17. Liams at the best team in the world atm. Pretty amazing if you ask me, these are amazing times for Canada soccer! I'm a diehard ManUtd supporter and even I want to buy a Millar LFC shirt haha
  18. I'm not a big fan of Real Madrid, they are like the NY Yankees to me. Its almost like they assemble their team on a unlimited budget cheat mode haha. Obviously Bayern are rich as can be too, but they seem more working class to me, which I like. I think Bayern can give any team in world football a beating on any given day. Davies is thriving and Bayern deserves a ton of credit for his development. Why leave? Real Madrid is like the rich old sugar daddy for hot models, seems like a great fit until the next young thing comes along.. I wont complain though haha, we are Canada after all. This is a great ride we are on.
  19. Terran Campbell? Hope it revealed soon. Sounds exciting!
  20. As mentioned, 2026 + Davies & David making headlines and we are suddenly pretty desirable. I think more then Turkey, and hes going to have to wait and improve quite a bit for a Senior Dutch callup. We have a real chance. Although playing in Turkey and getting a cap with them would probably help him get a good payday. Spam his social media with encouragement folks! Ballou seemed to appreciate the Instagram love from Canada when he was on the fence haha
  21. Its going to be a bidding war bloodbath.
  22. Making this look so simple lol https://streamja.com/7ZLW "My dad has always been a big Chelsea fan, and I was a fan of Didier Drogba," the 19-year-old told Germany's leading sports specialist magazine, kicker. "But I'm pretty sure he loves me more than he does Chelsea (laughs)."
  23. "It’s wonderful that we have a top scorer in David, but most of all, we want to keep him. In any case, we won’t let such a player leave for €25m." -Gent's director of football Michel Louwagie When Gent says that, they must be confident he is going for much higher. We can start ruling out a bunch of teams as many of you have eluded to. Ajax set the incoming Eredivisie transfer record when they signed Blind for Man U at €16.5 Benfica set the Liga NOS incoming transfer record when they signed Raul Jimenez for €22 According to transfermarkt the only teams that have spent in this range in Ligue 1 are PSG, Monaco, Marseille. In the Bundesliga, Bayern, Dortmund, Wolfsburg, and RB Leipzig have spent over €25m in the past.
