    No, sadly, only speed. (I am the Alphonso Davies of that particular appendage, to my wife’s chagrin.)😉

    Oh totally, no one comes close to Phonzie's athletism, but as a pure footballer, I still think David is ahead, he's just such a smart player, and plays like a veteran despite being so young.

    Davies is clearly ahead of David physically but not by as much as David is ahead of Davies in reading the game, seeing plays develop in advance and exploiting space in the attacking zone.

    I’m 6 foot. Liam is now 6’1. 
    he was 12. It was a **** show. Thomas Rongen  was the academy manager at the time and was looking for a certain type of player even at 12 Cut Ryan Raposo and a player named Ryan Khedoo( they called him mosquito) Liam and Ryan played for Burlington SC  khedoo played for Brampton  and where all very tidy technical players. Replaced them with big tall early developers...
    Made no sense at the time and Liam signed a 3 year contract 9 months later with Fulham FC and then TFC tried to get comp from Fulham. yes really!!
    I kept the release letter have it framed as a reminded to never give up... 
    i hold  no Grudges to TFC  probably the best thing to happen to him. 

    On a side note when we got to England and before we signed Fulham did a profile on  us (parents) height, weight, history of injuries(knees and stuff) athletic profile( I guess to give an indication of potential size)(just a one Page survey  nothing to serious)

    At least not against quality sides. If playing true minnows, then one could see some value in playing Davies at LB. But against tough CONCACAF competition, we need him causing havoc up the field, keeping our opponents on the back foot.

    With the Caps Robbo constantly had him switching sides and he was equally affective on the right or left.

    And I don't think we should dismiss the idea of him playing on his off-wing either. He played there for parts of the first game against the US and he was a pain in their Yankee assess. It is tactically wise to use Davies in attack, if only because it forces the opposition to always keep an eye on him. It is as much a defensive tactic as an offensive. (Two birds; one Davies.)

    Davies should not be burdened with defensive duties. It's that simple. His speed, strength and skill should be used to put pressure on the opponent as much as possible. The USA could not deal with him in Toronto.

    As much as the whole team looked bad (and I try to block the game from my mind), the last game against the US is why I don't want him at LB for us. I feel like he tried doing too much at times and like you said, didn't have world class defenders to cover him when he pushed up. I remember him doing a ton of running trying to attack and having to sprint back when they countered, he'll get too gassed if he needs to do that every game.
    If he plays LB for us but keeps it simple and focuses mostly on defending, we're kind of wasting the most dangerous attacking player in CONCACAF.

    No, no, no, and NO. Davies can play as a LB for Bayern because he has 10 other world class players on his team to bail him out and close any gaps he might leave while moving forward. Canada DOES NOT have this luxury... its really not that hard to understand. Davies a LB for Canada is a complete waste, specially when him and David together in attack can make any CONCACAF defense uneasy.
