  1. He is probably the smartest, and best, team presser that Canada has
  2. I came here to basically post this. I always liked Fraser but I pigeon holed him as a deep lying playmaker who would need two central midfielders ahead of him to compensate defensively. Against the US he showed that there is a chance he is able to play as a midfield two. Now, granted that Arfield and Osorio didn't exactly play as wingers and helped out a lot, but it was a very encouraging display.
  3. Canada produced a stunning display to defeat their southern neighbours for the first time in over three decades, and while the effort on display deserves a lot of the praise there were also multiple tactical decisions that led Canada to a more than deserving victory.

  5. Derp. I specifically thought I had looked this up
  6. I can't believe so many squads have N'Sa and none have Waterman
  7. Those aren't actually the 26 best American soccer players, are they?
  8. He'll get called up to the next England squad
  9. I have a lot of time for KJ, and I honestly think Caldwell parrots him at times regarding tactical analysis, but KJ would not make a good manager or assistant manager. He'd be a good consultant, perhaps.
  10. Caldwell is a proponent of Davies at left back. I'm still not sure what I think of his analysis in general. He seems like he tries hard not to be a homer regarding refereeing decisions, but his tactical analyses come across as basic. Admittedly, most commentators don't get too technical on television and I don't listen to his podcast where I'm sure he gets more in depth.
  11. Hamilton does need to get involved in the build up and pressing more, but his "laziness" is also an asset when attacking as it helps him find the dead space. I mean, take a look at this goal: If he attacks the loose ball with max effort then he probably doesn't score, but his stealthy running lulled the defender into a false sense of security. Don't get me wrong, the defender should have still cleared it, but on that play I think Hamilton showed his intelligence. I see no reason why Hamilton wouldn't be able to find a club in Europe that would play him week in and week out and where he could score loads of goals. I'm not sure he's ever gonna get paid a bunch or be called up consistently, but he could have a nice career if he wanted.
  12. Telfer is a nice option, but by no means do we need to cap him. As others have pointed out he's not the top CPL attacker and probably not even top 10 based on performances this season. Also, his versatility is overrated imo. He's looked completely out of place when I've seen him in central midfield this season, and from what I've seen of him at left back (for TFC previously) he'd get eaten alive there.
  13. Is there a precedent for a tournament in a "half window"? I'm curious if it means the top guys will actually be available for some of it, though I'm not holding my breath.
  14. Some Canadians that haven't been mentioned that impressed me: Connor James, Joel Waterman. Diyaeddine Abzi, Giuliano Frano, Elliot Simmons
