    And he seems a genuinely good human being, too!! Damned proud of all that he's achieved in a short amount of time. I feel blessed that I got to see him play at BC Place. Hope to see him on the Island (but I imagine tickets are all gone, yes?)

    I only was able to follow the game in the Guardian minute-by-minute https://www.theguardian.com/football/live/2020/feb/25/chelsea-v-bayern-munich-champions-league-last-16-live .  This was one of the many comments about Davies that stood out (italics on sensational are the Guardian, not me!):
    87 min: Davies scampers down the left yet again and finds Lewandowski on the edge of the box. Not for the first time tonight, a great chance is passed by as a Bayern striker can’t sort out his feet. They’ve earned the right to make a few mistakes, to be fair. Davies has been sensational, a star in the making.

    After  the Bayern players went over to acknowledge their fans they started to chant for Davies and his teamates pushed him to go up and acknowledge them! Sometimes I think I am dreaming when I see this stuff.

    Yes, and perhaps his biggest asset: smart, smart, smart. Football smarts with athletic ability and a nose for goal SHOULD help him slot into many different systems, I would think.

    David is an underrated passer too. That cheeky back-heel leading to the penalty was very nice.

    Caps with a strong comeback win in preseason today versus Minnesota. Seriously outshot Minnesota and save for the blunder on the first goal against, the Caps looked the better team for nearly the full game.  Too early to tell, but it looks like the Caps have a team this year, by which I mean a cohesive group who know how to play together and with purpose.  Lots of bright spots out there today, but I was especially impressed by Tiebert, Adnan, Cava and Dajome. Inbeom was also excellent, as was Reyna. It is pleasing to see how good a footballer Cava is. He works his ass off and is very smart.  Notched his fourth preseason goal in four games. This team is much better in possession than they were last year--so far--and they are playing more cohesive football all around.  Looks like a tight group already.  They've a couple more players yet to join, but they arrive this week, from what I hear. They do not have massive depth, but this squad looks stronger and more complete than the one from last year.

    Echoes of Wynn Belotte? All this promise at a young age but not enough humility to put in the work required? Or, if not lack of humility, then something else? The easiest thing to do is work your ass off! I hope he can get his head straight before it is too late.

    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 shit 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)
