  1. It's probably easier to get box-to-box mids, defenders and goalkeepers out of the draft. Positions less dependent on those technical aspects, more dependent of physicality. Matt Constant has a better chance of getting on a team than someone in the forward/attacking mid positions. I believe Miller was taken in the second round.
  2. The current CanMNT lineup lives rent-free in my brain on a daily basis. I know going to back 3 has been mentioned before and I always felt we didn't have the talent to play that amount of centre backs before 2020. I think I'm warming to it now if either Vitoria or Hutch are playing in the middle. If the Gold Cup and the recent Canada/US game are any indication, I don't think Hutch and Vitoria work well in a 2 due to their certain defending deficiencies. Specifically Hutch and his lack of body position, and Vitoria and his lack of pace. However, with the emergence of Kennedy, Miller (in h
  3. @spitfire's old club as well. That must be extra special. Good luck.
  4. "Since this season Sturing has been playing on an amateur basis at FC Den Bosch. Before that he came out for NEC in his hometown Nijmegen. Gösgens takes into account that Sturing may not return to FC Den Bosch at all. “There is interest in him from the Canadian Premier League. We also made that agreement with Frank at the beginning of this season. If there is a club where he can sign a contract, he is free to go. He has helped us a lot in recent months when we had many injuries in the back. And we were able to give him playtime. "
  5. Looks like he's box-to-box and helps explains the lack of assists and goals.
  6. Based on the FC Den Bosch manager, it looks like the callup is also an attempt to find him a CPL club. https://www.bd.nl/fc-den-bosch/canadese-voetbaltoekomst-gloort-voor-fc-den-bosch-verdediger-frank-sturing~a11db063/?referrer=https%3A%2F%2Ft.co%2F
  7. The initial post by One American references next year, so I'm assuming that Kennedy and Buchanan will progress to a being a starter. To be fair, it's not out of the possibility of reason. I have my doubts. With regard to Oso on the left, you're right. The idea would be to give him the ability to come inside as a faux 10 and play off of Arfield. That along with the double-pivot as cover will give Davies the freedom on the left to bomb forward. This may be a better solution. Bring in ZBG at RB.
  8. Eh, it's not half bad. Piette should be changed with Kaye probably, but lots of good possessors and cover through midfield, which will give Davies and Laryea the ability to get high up the pitch.
  9. That's a bit unfair to the guy. When he was on form at 23, he looked like a real prospect. That was a year after he scored a bunch in USL.
  10. Your list is better than Oliver's. A few things I would change: 1. I think we need to bring Akinola into WCQ and we either drop Millar or Wotherspoon to Gold Cup. 2. Jakovic has to be there somewhere if he hasn't retired. 3. I'd add N'Sa and Godinho, possibly Simmons and Young for the Olympic team.
  11. He is very left footed though and should have never played that pass into the centre of the pitch. That goal was on him. He seems to have bouts of poor concentration causing some sort of error like tonight, or doesn't track a runner, get's flat footed. If he could sort out the mental side, he's be top CB/LB in MLS.
  12. Amuz, Yankov and Corbeanu are in. Akinola: Good discussions and good possibility Ferreira: preference is Portugal but hasn't closed door Marmoush and Ferdi have declined.
