  1. Watching videos of his games for Gent, David is an extremely underrated passer. In the attacking zone, he has such a good understanding of where the other players are and flow of play that he sees the options before he receives the ball so there's no hesitation with the pass. Very rarely does he recycle the ball. Also, I noticed for the second goal, as soon as he lays the ball out on the left wing, he immediately makes a run into the box, bringing defenders with him. Lille can do worse than dropping maybe 15M+ Euros on David with the money they'll get from selling Pepe.
  2. Goal against Anderlecht. https://www.reddit.com/r/MLS/comments/bqjsg6/canmnt_jonathan_david_goal_against_anderlecht/
  3. What a game from David. https://www.proximus-sports.be/nl/voetbal/jupiler-pro-league/video/24339/kaa-gent-rsc-anderlecht Check out David at 0.20, 1.10, 1.40, and 2.30. Heck, just watch the whole thing. Keep reminding yourself that David is right-footed. Also, in addition to scoring, he sees the field really well so attacking mid might be his best position. If that's the case, he squeezes out Osorio, no questions asked.
  4. IYes, I think so. Beşiktaş would wipe the floor with any MLS team Larin would be a regular starter for, which is probably 75% of the teams.
  5. David goal around 1.10. He's got an uncanny ability to find space in the box. Keeper makes fantastic save off David's header and then he calmly chips it in. Lot of strikers in his position would just try to blast it as hard as possible. https://www.proximus-sports.be/nl/voetbal/jupiler-pro-league/video/24298/royal-antwerp-kaa-gent
  6. The defensive coverage on David's header was straight out of MLS 1.0 when you had starting CB's making $60K a year. Still, credit to David for a fine finish.
  7. First goal. https://www.proximus-sports.be/nl/voetbal/jupiler-pro-league/video/24210/goal-standard-1-2-kaa-gent-64-david Second. https://www.proximus-sports.be/nl/voetbal/jupiler-pro-league/video/24212/goal-standard-2-3-kaa-gent-90-4-david Also, he's right footed.
  8. Looks like they're playing a second division team, KV Mechelen. With a player valuation of about 10M Pounds according to Transfermarkt, that's significantly below that of Gent which has a valuation of 60M Pounds. Mechelen will probably bunker and play for PK's and try to exploit on the counter when possible. I'm guessing David will play his usual CAM and a big plus for Gent is that he doesn't neglect his defensive duties at all.
  9. Finally watched the highlights of the Impact\DC United game. Saw the ZGB run down the right flank, cutting into the box and forcing the goalkeeper to make a acrobatic save. Don't remember who the defender was but ZGB just pulled away from him like nothing.
  10. Also can't forget Eustaquio who's not in the Gold Cup mix with his knee injury but that's another quality midfielder.
  11. Not only does Kaye have the higher ceiling, I think he's above Piette right now. Don't get me wrong, I love Piette and if my life depended on someone winning a 50-50 ball, I'd choose him over Kaye but in every other aspect, Kaye is a better player.
  12. I watched the game. Gent player collided with CB player on a 50-50 ball and was airborne. On the way down, he makes a deliberate raking motion with his boot across the player's thigh. Ref had to go to VAR to get it right. As for David, he just finds open players and makes the right plays. Also, maybe it's me but it doesn't seem like the other Gent players are going out of their way to feed David in the attacking half.
  13. Gent is a decent Europa level team. Since becoming a regular starter for Gent back in January, David is probably one of the top 2 or 3 players for the team.
  14. If Davies played today, what would have been the formation? 4-3-3 with Davies playing up front on the right and David dropping to CAM? Or David and Cav up front and Davies and Hoilett on the wings in a 3-5-2? I can see why Gent is playing David as CAM becaus his play making is right up there with his scoring. David just turned 19 back in January but his game is crazy mature. I'm starting to think Gent is going to get an offer for David similar to what Vancouver got for Davies.
