  1. Thanks
    canadianbacons got a reaction from CanadaFan123 in The Road to Qatar.   
    The thing that bothers me the most is that if we don't make it to the Octo we will have very few games lined up after the Gold Cup. And we all know how effective the CSA is with lining up friendlies.

    Buddy I've got major Concacaf fever right now.. I've get multiple screens up. A couple sketchy streams, a Facebook page rocking. Dominica is killing it. Theyve got a guy from the Albanian 2nd division who's eligible thru his great granny. Im hoping they cap tie him in the 2nd half. Montserrat is currently doing some hokey pokey type workout for their warm up with a herd of cows grazing in the background, really adding to the atmosphere. Cuba kicks off soon but with 6 players cuz a few guys went AWOL last night. We're back baby, it gets no better, what a time to be alive

    There was something on Pasher in his thread ... dealing with an injury, so that explains that one at least.

    I think I'm more excited to see the taxi squad list then the 23-man roster, mostly because of the dual-nationals that could be on it. Is the list going to be officially announced, and if so, when? Or do we have to play "spot the player" in the CSA social posts again?

    I don't admire Mullins' game (and get angry when he is given more playing time than more talented players like Akinola), but he's carved out a decent MLS career. If Amanda can accomplish that in MLS then he could potentially receive several call-ups over time.

    That's how he plays though... when someone else is occupying the CB's, he finds space high in the box, same with David. They're both excellent poachers who aren't particularly good at making their own space. There's a really important distinction there, and it's why we need Cavallini to start in front of them both in a 4-2-3-1.

    Damn wasn't prepared for that. Good for him to be playing and scoring again. Hope there are brighter days ahead in the Hamilton family

    Henry and Cornelius in a low pressure game against Aruba. Henry to get back into the swing of national team play and Cornelius to shake off some rust. Bring in Sturing off the bench if you want him to get a bit of game time and you have subs to use.
    Vitoria and Kennedy vs. Suriname. Vitoria for his experience and familiarity with team tactics and Kennedy because of his high-level play in the B2 and speed.

    St. Clair
    Kennedy
    Sturing
    Vitória
    Henry
    Adekugbe
    Laryea

    Piette
    Kaye
    Hutchinson
    Eustáquio
    Corbeanu
    Millar
    Larin
    Hoilett
    Davies
    Cavallini
    David

    Omissions
    - Arfield (AWOL)
    - Gutiérrez (injury)
    - Osorio (injury)
    - Miller (injury)
    More guys will be called if their clubs release them for Herdman's "Gold Cup prep and generally training purposes"; we will actually see closer to 30 guys.

    Kyle Degelman, a midfielder formerly of the Whitecaps Residency program and of Hertha 03 Zehlendorf U17 has signed with Energie Cottbus. He's a 2004 so guessing he will start with their youth team.

    Without these two TFC are going to be painful to watch. The rest of the roster doesn't bring much creativity or dynamic abilities to the table. But at least a number of Canadians are seeing the pitch so we can enjoy that.
    Regarding Ayo - I just don't understand Armas' insistence on playing Mullins over him. Even if Ayo is a bit out of shape he's still way more talented and physically gifted than Mullins will ever be.

    Getting a healthy Poz and Soteldo in the lineup will help, Jozy isn’t a DP anymore let’s be real. I think an overhaul is in the works if Poz and Soteldo can’t carry the team.

    No mention in this MLSsoccer.com video discussing the top 5 for the #9 role with the USMNT.

    Would definitely be in our top 5 (although behind David, Larin and Cavallini).

    Got a degree in 2020.

    I was also wondering about his status. I don't really see him as a guy that would drop down to the CPL.  If there are no suitors in MLS I think we've seen the last of him unfortunately.
