  1. Thanks
    PopePouri got a reaction from Ruud in Alistair Johnston   
    Different type of player. He's very much a RB in the mold of Kimmich. Both seem to be comfortable in midfield ,either centrally or out wide.  Not as athletic, but has an above average football IQ, relies on good positioning. He can also be physical and strong in the tackle. He's 5'11 and built well.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    With his current form, I would not hesitate to have him start for Canada as of now. We might have found ourselves a legit successor to Borjan (sorry Crepeau)

    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.

    I think Oso is our most tactical adept midfielder we have and can anywhere in a 3. He should be starting over Kaye.

    Or perhaps it's because a bunch of random people on an internet forum don't have the football knowledge or access to information to know which players are better, especially considering that the people making the selections are actual licensed coaches who have actually been to those identification camps and have actually scouted the players, while we're a bunch of clueless idiots pretending we somehow know the "objectively" best roster based on what team they play for.

    i dont base things off one game. laryea is a utility player who is playing left wing now and thats probably his best position. zbg was benched for piette at RB this year and hasnt even been a fulltime starter. ZBG has like 1 or 2 career assist so what does he offer going forward?
