    I thought we were okay, considering the group we have out there. We are struggling to break down a very organized, defensive side, but we don't really have the horses to do so.  Oso and Fraser will need to pull the strings, but we're going to need some daring runs down the wings, too.

    Not that it is any of my business, and I know they are still teens, but if Davies and Huitema have kids, please for god's sake have them on Canadian soil. #CanadianSoccerRoyalty

    They still need to move Montero to get the dosh needed to sign higher cap hit players like Osorio.  I still believe that they need two new starting mids to go with In-beom, one of whom being a quality defensive holding mid who has enough technical skill but possesses stronger defensive capabilities.  Like you said, pieces need to be acquired but they need to be capable starters, not stop-gaps.

    Damn, he's so good we'd better cap tie him again, just to be sure!!  His progress has been incredible, in every sense of the word. He's still much to learn, but he's only 19!!

    I guess it was just to get him some playing time, but otherwise I have no idea why Shaffelburg was seemingly being played as a lone striker up top. He looked lost out there as a result. He's an out and out winger, works best on the left for that matter. I'd rather have seen Jacob or Borges play where Nelson did and put Nelson up top (where his occasional inexperienced-caused giveaways would be less likely to hurt us) rather than having Jacob played out of position like that. He looked like a fish out of water.

    Definitely! Meant to mention Shome. Nothing spectacular but was calm and moved the ball well. Definitely didn't give up anything by bringing him on and taking Piette off. 
    Such a great positive feeling for the U23's (the Friday beer also helps). Likely Iceland B will slap us back to reality but we have some strong players for the Olympic Qualifiers, even without the 4/5 best that we likely wont use. I will save that for the Olympic thread. 
    Also rude to not congratulate Herdman for managing both games professionally and also using the squad very well (goalkeepers aside). 
    Bring on Wednesday which will be intriguing.

    Nice to see a few of these young guys get a run out. Brym, Bassong and Nelson showed well. Good to see Fraser boss the midfield. If he doesn't stick with TFC, send him back to Vancouver. (Not sure he wants to do that, but this is not the same Caps organization it once was.)  Okello did not have much of the ball, but he's got some silky skills and could become a Viera-like midfielder if he really puts his game together. Didic showed well, Borges was fine, Shaffleburg did not really get settled. Excited to see how these guys develop.  For my money, Nelson at 17 showed the most promise. Quick, smart, good passer, good with the ball at his feet.  
    This has been a good couple of games, serving Herdman's purposes to a Tee.  Now let's see if the guys can get a result against an Iceland squad that will be very organized and tough to break down.  We will be vulnerable to the counter in that game, I suspect.

    Nah, that's not how I read it. I think everyone sees the quality in MDS, including Axel, the new CEO and Mallett.  I am not too worried about MDS, presuming he shows he's got the stuff. We're still a couple (very good) players short of a proper squad, but it sounds as though they are working hard to solve this. But I like all the moves the Caps have been making. They are building for long term, sustained success, and that means putting the right asses in the right seats. They need to solve the on field product, and quickly enough, but all the signs point in the right direction.  Think TO when they first hired Lewieke.  It'll take a couple years to see the real benefits, but you won't get anywhere, and you won't stick around, if you don't make all the moves they've made to the FO.

    Reyna on the right wing of a 4-3-3 has been a mixed bag.  He's been better in a central role up top or as a second forward in a two, so I'm curious to see how this plays out by the halfway point of the season
