  1. Played his NCAA ball for the Akron Zips but definitely a midfielder. Both Akron and Sigma valued a lot of positional versatility in their playing style though so its not surprising he could make the transition.
  2. Need a single ticket for the El Salvador game. Let me know if anyone wants to split.
  3. So you're saying that like the rest of us you're still on the fence about Herdman but you're keeping an open mind?
  4. Answer to this question might be what we see from Tajon the rest of this tournament. If he shows he can look this dominant against better teams we might actually be ok without Davies for one window
  5. The same way they always can, by applying pressure, letting the player know it might be good for their playing time if they don't go to Gold Cup
  6. Pantemis in line to start for the Club de Foot with Diop out. Not going to take Hasal and Crepeau both from Caps. Leutwiler the only other keeper on 60 man. I think they were planning on Pantemis until Diop got hurt.
  7. Started with the defense against both Suriname and Haiti.
  8. The funny thing is, for years we've complained about Canadian teams being too conservative, toothless in attack, playing it safe, passing the ball back too easily, etc. And then you get a guy who's willing to take a few risks for those potentially game-breaking rewards,and we're like, ok MAK, what we really need you to do is play it safe 😁
  9. MAK thread deserves to be bumped considering his contributions against Aruba, Suriname, and now Haiti. When he's playing within himself and not committing turnovers he brings a component to this midfield no one else does. That vision and ability to split the lines is truly special. Pass to Osorio to set up Larin was a case on point - pass was on the way before Osorio even realized how open he was. The test will be when he's under more pressure against teams that really press well. I think it helps having Eustaquio always there as a safe outlet.
  10. I knew about Scott's speed and ability to get stuck in. I had no idea he was that good a passer out of the back. He even had the confidence to drive forward with the ball a few times when space presented itself.
  11. Agreed, this escalated pretty fast. Kaye has been streaky at times in his career but so have most of our players. The whole LAFC team has struggled, so its not surprising some of their fans are frustrated with Kaye. Plenty of Lille fans thought David was a chump until Christmas or so. Coaches and analysts seem to rate him highly and I think he's quite capable of having a great game for us, in fact his box to box ability might be exactly what's needed against Suriname in a game that might have considerable back and forth flow to it.
  12. Scores game winner 6 minutes in to his first sub appearance for San Antonio
  13. https://www.wakingthered.com/platform/amp/2021/4/7/22353074/exclusive-out-of-the-shadows-and-into-the-spotlight-the-emergence-of-ralph-priso-toronto-fc?__twitter_impression=true
  14. Amanda sticks out as being a '98 among all those under 20s. Quick question are you ranking Flores last because it's unlikely he plays for us or do you see the other 9 as better prospects?
  15. Why isn't Atiba lobbying for Besiktas to sign any of our CBs?
  16. He doesn't come around much anymore. Someone has to fill the role of stubborn and nostly nonsensical Dutchman. (Those are big wooden shoes to fill though)
  17. Interesting read on Anthony Novak in Portugal,where he is apparently playing more as a 10 than as a 9. https://northerntribune.ca/clube-condeixa-anthony-novak-interview/
  18. SOCCER Jules-Anthony Vilsaint will represent the East at the Danone Cup SOCCER. Jules-Anthony Vilsaint, a young rising soccer star from Laval, has been selected to represent the Eastern Team in the Canadian Danone Nations Cup final to be held at Percival Molson Stadium on June 27. Comments By Sylvain Lamarre Published on June 10, 2015 Jules-Anthony, who wears the colors of the Saint-Laurent U13 AA team, will be making his second appearance and his last chance to represent Canada at the world final. Last year, Jules-Anthony had some exhilarating moments to say the least, taking part in the national final of the 15th edition of the Danone Nations Cup, held at Stade Saputo, in Montreal. “I will give everything to come out with the victory against the West team. I don't want to lose like last year, ”insists the one who will play as a midfielder. “I can't wait to play at the Montreal Alouettes stadium. It will be the first time for me, ”he adds. Steps The young athlete from Sainte-Dorothée is officially one of the 11 players of the Eastern Team, which brings together the best football fans between 10 and 12 years old from Quebec and Ontario. Chosen among 5000 players, he was able to go through all the stages of the various selection camps to find himself in the formation of the East. “It's not a big surprise to have been selected. I was confident, because I dominated in all facets of the game, ”humbly mentions the former Delta color-bearer. To Morocco The winning team will represent Canada at the international final of the Nations Cup scheduled for the fall in Morocco. Jules-Anthony would love to show them his talent by playing against some of the best soccer teams from the 32 participating countries. “I will give my all to represent Canada in Morocco. I want to know the best game of my career. I hope to beat the West, ”concludes the sixth grade student at Saint-François Elementary School.
  19. He was with Haiti at 2019 u17 World Cup but didn't end up playing any minutes
  20. This game made me feel very comfortable with Adekugbe starting at LB going forward.
