    But games 3 days apart? Doesn’t seem like an ideal situation.

    Being invisible in a game like that isnt the worst thing, not when you have a CB either doing the OLE defense or giving up on plays.  It still makes sense they brought him off, give another youngster a shot as the game was lost by that point.  Too bad for him to finally get minutes in the game that the entire team was so discombobulated.  There were others that were so much worse, but I doubt they will be nailed to the bench as he probably will be.

    Henry was most people MOTM for the Whitecaps tonight. He was rock solid and really showed his stuff on the defensive side tonight.

    Well, Pozuelo is good.
    Overshadowed by Pozuelo, Osorio and Chapman both had a great game and continued their great start to the year. For me, Chapman seems deserving to get in the rotation a lot more than in previous years. He has had an impact every time he has played. 
    I think both Osorio and Chapman will actually benefit from having Pozuelo there. He will open up more space in the middle, because he obviously attracts attention. And he will find both of them on their runs, as both of them like to attack the back line. TFC looking like their old self, and they still have some serious TAM to work with.

    Davies and David are two very different players.
    As an out and out winger it is Davies job to attack the back line, make riskier moves, and win one on ones; Stuff he did better than almost anyone has in MLS (including DPs). Straight out wingers will always give the ball away, what is more important is that they win the risk reward trade off. So far, Davies has always beaten players enough to justify his risky plays, including in the Bundesliga. So I think he will earn his time.
    David, on the other hand, is more of an inside forward, or playmaker. Their job is to generate chances as well, but in a much more controlled way than a winger. Because they are in the center of the pitch there is more risk, so obviously they need to be more careful. David is very good at retaining possession and generating chances. But the Belgian league is much easier to do that than the Bundesliga. The defensive structure is easier to break down, and players are a little slower to close you down. David looks very good in the Belgian league, but if he were to go to the Bundesliga, he would have the same difficulties that Davies has in breaking into a starting lineup. 
    Saying David would do better because he is a safer player doesn’t mean anything because they play different roles. Although they play in nearly the same positions, it all depends on their playing style and what they are asked to do. Bayern has always played with true wingers, so Davies will get his chance as long as he creates more than he gives away.

    Think you're being extremely harsh. With Vancouver it was Davies responsibility to take on defenders and create, and he did it at a higher success rate than anyone in the league. That's what earned him a transfer to Bayern. I don't think he's shown any inclination of 'wreckless wastefulness' with Bayern. Apart from wandering into the 18 for his goal, Davies has been very conservative, and almost tentative since joining Bayern. Safe passes, few take-ons, rarely  dispossessed.

    Beautiful website from the supporters group! Fc Edmonton has added a direct link to the supporter’s site from the team site. Some great cooperation happening in Edmonton. I am not involved in the supporters group (I don’t have time), but I am very impressed.
