  1. I'd love to have a dozen solid top flight pros, period.
  2. It's impressing how much attacking talent is coming out of that 99/00 age group. If Raposo establishes himself as a regular MLS player he potentially pushes Tabla down to fifth or sixth in terms of the CMNT depth chart just in that specific age group. Even if you exclude the generational talents of Davies and David this is still showing signs of being a very solid group. If the 01/02 cycle produces anything close to this level of talent our wing/forward depth could be outstanding for the next decade. Now we just have to hope for a few defenders.
  3. Zavaleta has played in official youth competitions for the US. He'll never be able to switch to Canada since he didn't hold Canadian citizenship when he played for the US. El Salvador would be his only option if he decided to file his switch.
  4. To the delight of the Voyageurs forum, the commentator with the English accent is pronouncing his name as Davies!
  5. If he played an official match at the youth level, he would be eligible to file a on-time switch to any country that he was eligible to represent at the time of his first official youth cap. If he wasn't eligible to represent Canada when he first played for England he will never be able to gain eligibility under the current rules. I believe Gershon Koffie wanted to play for Canada but he was ineligible based on this rule.
  6. Hasn't he played at the youth level for England? If any of those were official matches that would disqualify him from ever representing Canada - barring the discovery of a Canadian Granny.
  7. Do the impact have any other options at RB at the moment? I understand Henry is trying to convert Bayiha to a RB but he is clearly behind ZBG at this time.
  8. Looks like the IOC is considering cancelling the Tokyo Olympics if the COVID-19 virus is not under control. It would be disappointing but good to see that they are prioritizing the safety of the athletes and spectators.
  9. Yes, but he still doesn't have half the charisma of Lanny McDonald's moustache! Then again, who does?
  10. He had six assists in three seasons in MLS and had two last year in Turkey. So far he has eleven in less than a full season in Belgium. Can't be bothered to work out the assists per minutes played but his game has significantly transformed since moving to Europe and he's becoming a more complete player. One thing I've noticed, the few times I've watched him this season, is that he's always looking to pass first even around the box where he would have tried to shoot earlier in his career. He may need to go back to being a little more greedy.
  11. https://tbrfootball.com/report-arsenal-everton-and-leicester-interested-in-gent-attacker-jonathan-david/ More rumours of interest from English sides and a couple of clubs from Italy also thrown in. I wouldn't mind seeing a Canadian playing in Serie A.
  12. Radzinski was an all out striker and had Jan Koller as his strike partner, who also scored 29 goals that year, while David plays more of a midfield role. There is also an approximately 8 year age difference between David today and Radzinski in the 00/01 season. David's accomplishments are far more impressive.
  13. Radzinski had 29 goals (23 in league play) his final year in Belgium. That might be the highest for a Canadian player in a quality European league. Not sure if there's enough games left for David to catch him.
  14. Can you teach length in other appendages? Asking for a friend.
  15. Scored a beauty in a preseason match against Colorado over the weekend. Goal is at 0:48 of the highlights. https://www.torontofc.ca/post/2020/02/09/preseason-2020-toronto-fc-cruise-past-colorado-rapids-opener
  16. I would agree that he's not currently on the same level as the other two and he probably doesn't have their ceiling but that should not exclude him from the list of 'great upcoming talents'. Even if he never becomes a regular at Liverpool, he has the potential to be a Premier League player for years. I hope Tabla gets back on track and we spend years debating which one of the two should be considered the third best player of their generation. Anyway, off track again. Back to David.
  17. We are. Third one made his debut for Liverpool this week.
  18. https://www.proximus-sports.be/nl/voetbal/jupiler-pro-league/video/27716/goal-kv-mechelen-0-2-kaa-gent-50-david David's goal today vs. Mechelen.
  19. https://www.impactmontreal.com/en/post/2020/01/28/highlights-impact-3-1-dc-united?autoplay=true Match highlights in the video. Looked like more than just a hockey assist on the second goal. Solid defensive work to win the possession.
  20. It might simply be a fitness issue. I thought he was struggling with injuries most of last season.
  21. With respect to David's progress; he now has 15 goals on the season across all competitions surpassing his total of 14 for last season. It should be noted that although he has appeared in fewer games so far this year he has already surpassed the number of minutes he played last year.
  22. I don't think so. He needs to be 18 to sign a contract but I don't believe there is any restrictions on when a transfer could be announced. The Davies transfer was confirmed months before his 18th birthday.
  23. Keep in mind that Perruzza is two years younger than Bair. A direct comparison at this stage is a bit unfair.
  24. I'm getting addicted to looking up his stats! Whoscored gave him a rating of 7.79 against Freiburg. That was second best on the team. It was one thing that he was getting a top rating when the team was not playing well but he's still ranking as one of the top players even when they are winning. His season average is now 7.42 which ties him for 8th best in the Bundesliga this season. That however falls short of his 8.22 rating in the Champions league where he is the fourth highest rated player behind Lewandowski, Messi and Neymar! I think I've come across those names before somewhere.
