  1. Bulgaria Dominik Yankov starts for Ludogorets vs. Slavia Sofia
  2. A little more from the article posted above. He’s not shy about his goals for himself and the CMNT.
  3. We seem to have a glut of keepers around 20 years old. Is he better than Breza, Desjardins or Hasal?
  4. SCOTLAND Wotherpoon starts for St. Johnstone vs. Rangers. Arfield is on the subs bench. Paton is a sub for Ross County vs. Kilmarnock UPDATE Afield played 30 mins and Wotherspoon went the full 90. Rangers win 3-0. Paton played the last 4 minutes in a 2-2 tie.
  5. From looking at Twitter it seems like most Besiktas supporters want him to get another chance. Balotelli and Papisse Cisse are rumored targets in the transfer window.
  6. Makes sense, the current Swansea manager Steve Cooper was involved with Liverpool‘s youth teams for a long time.
  7. Lille also signed old man Burak Ylimaz, who played with Atiba at Besiktas for the past few years. He can score, not sure if they plan to start him or bring him off the bench though.
  8. I’d say 1. Ferdi 2. Marmoush 3. Ferreira 4. Akinola 5. Yankov 6. Hakkinen Mitrovic is already on record saying he will play for Canada and I expect we will see that in the not too distant future. Ferdi and Marmoush are playing in the best leagues at this point, on good clubs and getting a decent amount of playing time. Ferreira is a definite improvement on any of our current CB’s, but is injury prone. Akinola did well in the tournament but still needs to show more and who knows how much he will play with Altidore being healthy. If he continues to play well, he will go up my list. Yankov is one for the future, it might be worth a call up during the qualifiers against minnows to get him cap tied to us. I’m not sure Hakkinen is an upgrade over the current glut of similar CBs we already have. Just my .02 cents.
  9. Lol, my bad, thanks for catching my error. I watched a good portion of the game, somehow I typed Chievo instead of Spezia.
  10. I agree 100%. The top Turkish teams seem to write younger guys off quickly and move on to older guys at the end of their career. If Besiktas decide Cyle isn’t going to be in their 18 game day squad, I hope they move him on before the summer/fall transfer window closes.
  11. Larin is back with Besiktas, looks like he did some fitness testing today and from I can find, it sounds like they might be giving him another shot. It will probably depend on Besiktas finding a replacement for Burak Ylimaz up front. If their rumoured financial problems are true, they may have to give Cyle some playing time and hopefully he does well with his chance.
  12. Tesho Akindele starts for Orlando City in the finals of the MLS is Back tournament. Kamal Miller is on the substitutes bench.
  13. Italy Serie B promotion Axel Desjardins is the substitute keeper in leg 2 of Spezia’s promotion series vs Chievo. SPEZIA win 3-1 and advance to the promotion final.
  14. Academy player for Wolverhampton, looks promising
  15. For the games against the minnows, invite some of the young guys playing in Europe and get them capped. Mitrovic, Corbeanu, Yankov, Kennedy, Paton and Breza for starters. Herdman should be asking all the long shot dual nationals as well Marmoush, Ferreira and Kadioglu.
  16. Mitrovic with a terrific pass to set up a penalty from yesterday’s match.
  17. Back in June he was on a podcast and mentioned he’s committed to playing for Canada. But I agree with you, bring him in during the next window and make it official.
  18. Scott Arfield is on the bench vs. St. Mirren Arfield played the final 16 minutes in a 3-0 Rangers victory.
  19. Bulgaria Dominik Yankov played 31 minutes for Ludogorets in a 3-1 loss to Botev Vratsa Italy Serie B Promotion Playoff Axel Desjardins is the back up keeper for Spezia vs. Cheivo
  20. Alphonso Davies starts in leg 2 vs Chelsea in Champions League play. 3 pm EST on DAZN
  21. https://smarterscout.com/articles/champions-league-jonathan-david-dele-alli-luis-suarez-alphonso-davies-ligue-1-lille-kaa-gent-canada Another interesting article on his versatility
  22. MLS MINNESOTA UNITED VS ORLANDO CITY Raheem Edwards and Greg Ranjitsingh start on the bench for Minnesota United Tesho Akindele starts for Orlando City. Kamal Miller is a substitute.
