  1. Looks good. I would start Osorio instead of Atiba. After 60 minutes bring in Cavallini for David or Hoilett, and if Davies is good to go, sub him in for Buchanan or Laryea.
  2. I think we need to go to a 3-5-2, which we can do by subbing in Osorio for Adekugbe. I would also put David in for Larin.
  3. Sporting Kansas City started 7 homegrown players, six of them under the age of 22.
  4. My apologies if this has been discussed before, but I’m wondering how many of Mexico’s best players are missing from its Gold Cup squad? Have they brought what is essentially their A team, or not?
  5. Yes, I was including the US group phase game.
  6. As long as we advance from the Gold Cup group stage, we will most likely play 2, 3 or maybe even 4 games against our Octo opponents. This is excellent preparation for WCQ.
  7. I think Wheeler pronounced the player’s name correctly. His name is Kévin Fortuné. https://www.footmercato.net/selection/martinique/effectif/
  8. I’m of British descent and I wanted England to win, but quite honestly I’m much more interested in seeing our CMNT in the Gold Cup. Allez les Rouges!!!
  9. Last night he looked pretty solid. In his short MLS career he has mostly played out of position as a RW, RWB, LW or LWB. As far as I understand, his natural position is that of central attacking midfielder. Maybe with Sejdic gone they will start to play him centrally. Yes, if he can get regular MLS minutes and continue to develop, I think he would be in the conversation for a call-up.
  10. What is jarring about it?
  11. Last night Mathieu Choinière scored his first MLS goal in CF Montréal’s 1-0 win over Miami. Nice to see him getting some playing time and doing well.
  12. Uruguay’s current FIFA ranking is 9th in the world, so they’re about as good as Mexico, who are ranked 10th. Mexico do not tear us apart, so why would Uruguay? And Suárez and Cavani are both 34 years old.
  13. IMHO, our strongest MLS squad would include Laryea and Waterman instead of Bassong and Singh.
  14. Hopefully this means more playing time for Miller and Waterman.
  15. How on earth can Van Dijk and Wijnaldum be eligible for Suriname? Both have played many times for the Netherlands senior national team.
  16. Agreed about Wotherspoon. With Hutch, Kaye and Eustaquio in midfield he most likely doesn’t start, but in the absence of Arfield and Osorio he’s a good depth player.
  17. If we play Buchanan at RW, we would have to either sit Hoilett, or move him to LW, in which case we would have to move Davies to LB.
  18. Borjan Buchanan Vitoria Miller Laryea Eustaquio Arfield Hoilett David Davies Cavallini In my opinion, this lineup puts our best fullbacks and wingers on the field and gives us awesome firepower. Larin is currently playing very well, but I really like Cavallini.
  19. Does anyone know whether Catavolo and Kane are with Montreal's new U23 team?
  20. Very good starting 11. Agree that Arfield is our best number 10. I would put Davies at left back and either Hoilett or Buchanan at left wing. We would be just as good defensively and have more firepower.
