    Luckily he's owned by a club that has two former CPL players contributing in Waterman and Pantemis. I think that bodes well for him.

    After what we did to Costa Rica in July, if we can’t dominate them at home it’s going to be disappointing.

    I don't like how we use the word 'Form' sometimes... it kinda implies that a guy who plays 2 good games is suddenly that player and not the one we've seen for the past 10 years.
     
    This is gonna come off as me hating Teibert no matter what I say, but I just don't see it. He still just... doesn't do much. I need way more evidence before I'm convinced a 28-year old is a different player, and one goal doesn't change that. He gets a lot of playing time, but I feel like every other midfielder offers a skillset we could use at some point in a game. Say Fraser is a 6/10 at progressing the ball and a 3/10 on defense. Piette is like a 8/10 tackler and quietly improving as a passer. 
     
    Teibert is just 4/10 at everything. It hurts to say, but it's been my impression every time I've watched him He seems like a great leader, but that just isn't enough.

    Great game played 70 quality mins got a 8.3 SofaScore rating… worked his socks off and did well to stay in shape and was a real threat going forward too. Combining well…
    Saw less of the ball 2nd half but has settled really well at Basel…. 3 goals and 4 assists now for FC Basel…
    happy for him!!

    I think Herdman just made a smart call for the El Salvador game. We didn’t need Davies and wanted to do what was best for him and us long term. That good faith made it possible for us to start him 3 games without question in October IMO. 
     
    The next windows shouldn’t be issues either. 2 games next month and then January Germany is on break. The last window might be do or die so there can’t be any reasonable club demands of Davies.

    Such a quality player. I also think he could play in the EPL. He almost glides out there with his dribbling. He has excellent control and explodes so quickly. 
    Expert at  shielding the ball and shaping his body. Excellent off the ball too.

    I only watched bits and pieces but Godinho looked decent. He had one highlight nutmeg spoiled by a shanked cross.

    He's been extremely hard done by this season. The team in front of him sucked and he was dropped. Meanwhile Miller has had a few games where he's given up a bunch of goals but never gets dropped. You would think they would toss him a mid-week game or something at least.

    I was saying the same about Buchanan his first MLS year.  He was very flashy and quick, but there was no result or end product.  He worked, learned and turned that around very quickly. 
    Only difference is Arena is a real coach and NE is a team that understands what development is.  They continued to play him and look at him now.

    Agree completely. I thought JMR was good but Nelson was a bit more “electric” and in line with the players we’ve seen on the national team. He had jump out there and demanded the ball.

    Yeah, I want trying to compare his style to Tajon - it was more of a comparison re the willingness to attack players directly.   That just isn’t about speed, which I agree doesn’t seem like something he naturally has in abundance.

    It is funny, I thought the same thing as I watched him. You think of a guy like Tajon who has the confidence to run at guys.  But then I remember that Tajon is 22 and JMR only turned 17 four months ago.  Nelson also seems more keen to take guys on - but again, he is 19.  Based on what we saw tonight, I think JMR’s overall play and skill level is just fine.  Hopefully he continues to get time.

    CanadaFan123 reacted to RS in Jayden Nelson   
    I actually think JMR had a better overall game than Nelson did today, especially when it came to combining with teammates and on the other side of the ball, but Nelson tends to play more freely when he gets on the field and always looks to take players on (sometimes to his own detriment).
    IMO, one of the main differences between the two is JMR's ability to play a more complete game and elevate/keep up with his teammates — we've seen flashes of it in recent weeks, but today it was extremely evident. Nelson's much more direct, but with flair. More of a DeRo type.
