  1. I'm not sure he will ever reach Dutch National team level. However, given he is still only 20 years old and the fact that besides Memphis the attacking level for the Netherlands national team drops off quite significantly, he may very well get the call. Obviously also quite known in the youth system having played for the U16, U17, U18, U19 & U21 squads. With that being said, the fact he is playing in Turkey for one of the Turkish giants and getting regular starts, I wouldn't be surprised if Turkey was considering calling him soon. Now that Tomori is with England, I believe Ferdi is the current best dual national player for Canada.
  2. Not really relevant but he was pictured in one of Osorio's IG posts for Canadians playing with TFC for Canada Day. Also Achara is now out for the season with an ACL tear, so chances of playing increased slightly.
  3. Liverpool could win the league today if Man City drops points. If not, they should win the league in their next game. That means, title clinched with 6 or 7 games remaining and I would love to see some of the young kids get some action (especially Liam) in the remaining games. Unfortunately, Liverpool are eliminated from Champions League and FA Cup and there is less incentive to rest their key players but hopefully Liam can earn a couple premier league appearances especially given the 5 substitutions right now.
  4. Cardiff has been on a quite a run in the 2nd half of the season. If I'm not mistaken, they are now tied for the final promotion playoff spot.
  5. Since joining Pacos in 2020, he has featured in 11 of the 14 games (starting most of those). He has played in all 3 games since the league resumed and started in both games they've won in June. When signed in the fall, Pacos were in relegation. Currently they sit 7 points above relegation with 7 games remaining. 5 teams ahead of them within 2 points as well.
  6. I would rather have a Cornelius or Henry over Piette back there even if both are prone to mistakes. Personally, I believe Larin to be the more long term striker for Canada over Cavallini especially given his recent form. Hoilett is iffy to me as well. Not based on talent because I still think he is one of our best players but based solely on the fact I am not sure he can keep up the defensive responsibilities in that role. Would be okay with Laryea or ZBG at that position.
  7. Love the player selection except potentially the back 3. Not sure I would make any changes to the lineup outside of the back 3. Playing 3 natural midfielders who play midfield week in week out with club could be risky. Wouldn't mind Atiba back there except for his age and Kaye doesn't bother me as much either. Interesting perspective though.
  8. Canada Soccer twitter account confirmed the friendlies are cancelled.
  9. It was just a statement not a recommendation. I don't mind spreading the friendlies around the country at all as I think its good for the game in the country. Although 75% of our national team players comes from the GTA and they do seem to have great results at BMO. To answer your question, yes a T&T friendly in Toronto would likely sell 15k today given the large T&T community support. If you think otherwise, I'll respect your opinion. Again, I am happy and support that the games are selling out across the country.
  10. The Greater Toronto Area has a very large Trinidad & Tobago community. I would expect that if these friendlies were being held at BMO in Toronto that it would sell very well. Much like other games held in Toronto (recently Jamaica), you would like have a high opposition (T&T) attendance.
  11. I actually wanted to give him the goal on it since it appeared to be going in anyways. I usually stick to official MLS statistics. Either way, very impressive in both games.
  12. You would think as a TFC fan who watched the game, I wouldn't have missed that. Thanks, its updated.
  13. I figured I would start this chart again for Canadians in MLS 2020. The list of Canadians in MLS this year moves up to 50 players. This includes HG youth players who have yet to play an MLS game and a few players already loaned out. So far 20 Canadians have seen action through the first 2 games of the season.

  14. Ferdi came on for Fenerbahce in the 85th minute down 2-1 and provided a beautiful assist on the game tying goal in the 96th minute. He is included in the 18 man game roster basically every game now and quite regularly features off the bench.
  15. Ferdi's mother is Dutch Canadian.
  16. Seems to have started the season off in very good form and playing regularly. Given that potentially all of Bassong, Miller, ZBG & Godinho are with the U23's I can't imagine him not being a part of the next men's camp.
  17. 80 European games for Gent vs 16 European games for Zulte-Waregem Gent by no means is a historical powerhouse in Belgium but still quite a difference, especially in recent years. And the quality of recent and current players on Gent higher than Zulte-Waregem.
  18. I believe its already been stated that Cristian Gutierrez isn't ready to commit to Canada. The fact he didn't make the preliminary roster also makes me think we can assume he hasn't committed or perhaps wants to focus on breaking through at Whitecaps first.
  19. It all depends on their long term goals. Tomori and Cristante both may very well end up like De Guzman who only ended up with 14 caps for Netherlands. 10 to 20 caps for a team like England, Italy or Netherlands vs 50 plus caps and playing an integral role for Canada. For years I thought De Guzman was crazy for waiting on the Netherlands call. I think he may have been 26 by the time he was called but he ended up playing in a World Cup. So it all depends.
  20. Definitely need to improve on our center backs first but absolutely given our current attacking talent. If we had Tomori & Ferreira in his prime, I would be less hesitant to have him play Left back and join in the attack.
  21. By no means am I comparing David & Larin but the team you play for and playing cast around you has a factor in your goals and assists. Gent is likely going to to score multiple goals every game in the league while Zulte are gonna struggle to even score in some games in the league. It's like expecting players like Pukki or Harry Wilson to be top scorers in the premier league. To help put into perspective, in less than one full season Larin is 4 goals away from cracking Zulte Waregem's top 20 in scoring all time.
  22. To be fair, when I first read it, I was thinking the same thing and thought someone must be crazy to believe this. Once I reread the post, I could see that it was not about Borges ever playing for Leicester.
