    In the overused word of Caldwell, that indeed was a "quality" performance by the Impact.  Hard to believe Binks is just turning 19.  He, Camacho, and Raitala were solid.  Excellent team effort.

    Larin with a nice play today, but his teammate couldn’t find the net. Most on Besiktas twitter are saying positive things about his performance.

    Ok many thanks for your replies on the MLS
    Below another link on “your kid”, it is from Sky Italy after Lyon-Bayern, there was Capello (who won as a coach several Serie A, Liga and Champions league) and Costacurta (who played in the defense of AC Milan and Italy in the 90s with Maldini and Baresi and wan several CL, serie A and was runnner up at 94 wc) and another pundit.

    From second 22 basically they say this:

    Pundit: Is it possible with all the Italians who live in Canada that nobody signalled him, and Bayern bought the kid?
      Capello: I called in November Sabatini (a famous Director of football who has worked in many serie A teams) and told him “there are very few people around who understand anything of football, how cannot they have notices this guy?”   (they show a video) Here it is, look what a recover!   Pundit: this one is a guy who can redifine the term of the LB role   Capello: he is of another level, he also made two pass-through balls, he put Perisic in front of the keeper   Technycal, physical qualities....really extraordinary   Joirnalist (with Costacurta confirming almost loghing): no difficulties on the 1 vs 1, he accepts the duel

    I think Laryea is looking more dangerous at LB than RB. In a back 4 we may want to start him there with ZBG at RB.
    If we go 3 in the back and push the wing backs high, I would go with Davies on the left and Richie on the right.

    Guys, Keep it real..... I said "near future".  You know, the next few years.  You really think none of these guys have a shot at passing Crepeau by then?
    Besides, do we really want to have a discussion on the level of a SerieA backup vs MLS starter?

    Yes, very cool! Got to catch the second half and it was pretty nervy... First time Spezia qualify for Serie A in their history! But honestly, unless they have a huge summer haul, can't see them staying up. Still pretty cool! Hope Desjardins gets some playing or goes on loan next season. The fact they gave him his debut in the last game of the season is somewhat promising. Can't wait to see what happens to him, and hopefully Canada soccer move their butts and send some scouts in Italy, cause they've got three promising keepers there!!!

    Desjardins club Spezia won promotion today to Serie A. Hope he gets a few games next year.
    2 backup  Canadian keepers in Serie A next season (hopefully) with Desjardins and Bologna’s Sebastian Breza.

    One has to think he'll try to extend his playing and CANMNT career until 2022.  Its every players dream to play a WC.  He's not that far, still playing more than well in a strong league.  
    IF we qualify, I bet a Canadian beer and Tim Hortons donut he gets on the field.  THAT will be his goodbye tour.

    I was gonna say this, why not get some more competitive games in? As long as we can call up our strongest team I'm not worried at all. Well, maybe a little since we're Canada...but we should be good...right?

    We can't be scared of Bermuda and Suriname ffs. It's probably a better thing we play decent teams in that round than just beat up on minnows anyway

    If we can't win this group, we only have ourselves to blame. I don't think anyone in our group would be favoured to make it to the World Cup, so if we think we can make a World Cup, we should have no complaints. If we have a couple of relatively tough games against Suriname and/or Bermuda on our way there, it prepares us better for the next rounds.

    costarg reacted to SpecialK in Liam Millar   
    For me it’s really simple. Is Millar in our best XI no he’s not. Is he a sure sub off the bench no he’s not. Is he a starter for U23 team yes he is. It’s a no brainer he needs to be part of U23, let him lead and be a star for that team. Our U23 team should be  very good but same with the US. Millar should be challenged with the U23 and in my opinion it’s more important because he’s gonna be a leader and expected to deliver. Canada needs star players for that U23 team and Millar is one of them. I think Millar needs the U23 it should be his coming out party. Liverpool and other clubs are going to be watching. 
    There’s a bunch of talented players I think need the U23 team.

    honestly, the guy has been playing professionally since he was 18, and has been progressing well. He should be getting call ups as it is, specially if he's been playing as a CB, this move just sort of confirms it.

    Evidently he wants out on loan.  Had enough of watching Bradley play every minute of every game.  Heard his dad played in Scotland and he wants to go there to get some playing time.
