    Sheeit I seen him run and close down Quinterro too. 
    Hey for me it’s, Are you’re performing? Yes..at what playing levels? High!.... Then you should always be in contention for the NT as long as you want to be.

    5 subs, up a man, 2-0, and they play one Canadian for half a game. I hate TFC.

    Anyway we look at it, things are looking solid at RB.  As an Impact fan, I love Laryea's game, and I hope to see them both push themselves farther for the starter role on CANMNT.  ZBG is only 21, Laryea 25, if they're fairly equal now, I expect ZBG to take it in a year or two.  Either way, they remain a great duo, throw in Cordova and we've got depth and options at RB.  We can focus on the rest of the back line now.  
    Just please don't ever call up Godinho again!

    It feels nice to be disagreeing about which right back is the better option for playing right back. It isn’t long ago we were all discussing which centre back or midfielder was best suited to play out of position at RB.

    2 solid RBs, and we have Cordova too as well.

    I am in the other camp on this one.  With our lack of depth at the back (and Phonzie often shoved in at LB) I think RB is doing pretty well on the bell curve.  Neither are world beaters at this point but I think Laryea is fairly proven given his performances with TFC and I have been happy with ZBG while playing with the Nats.  I am more concerned about the other defensive positions than I am with RB.

    If you mean Laryea is more impactful because he can score or win a penalty when his team is down a goal, then I agree.... that's when he subs in for TFC . He has not won the starting RB spot  for his club for a reason.... his defensive ability has not been tested.  Ritchie is also playing with better players and more support at TFC. In the games I have watched ZBG play  last season and this season, he has performed very well and is a threat with his speed. He played conservatively yesterday and I have to think that was the instructions from the coaching staff for some reason!  I would comfortably say that ZBG is a more complete RB than RL at this stage and that he has a higher ceiling. Lyon does develop top talent through their academies, so its no surprise. With Davies potentially playing at LB, we need a RB that is sound defensively.

    Piette can't share defensive duties in the midfield, he doesn't know what to do with himself in a 4-2-3-1.  He can only play 6 in a 433 or or 4141.  I doubt we'll ever see him at RWB again, that was a huge fail.  With everyone healthy, i expect to see Wanyama start next game and Piette on the bench.  Good to see Henry experiment though.

    Henry has a massive puzzle with the Impacts roster.  There is a lot of potential, but building continuity and familiarity will be his biggest challenge.  Even with 5 changes per game, it’ll be difficult to get everyone the playing time they need to prove themselves.  15-20minutes won’t cut it.  I don’t see how we play back to back games with the same 11.  Not to mention high salaries that don’t factor in the best 11.
    The depth on the wings is nuts, and no one really stands out as the clear starters:  Lappi, Quioto, Urutti, Ballou, Okwonkwo, Bojan..... 
    I don't see how we fit Bojan in there regularly, he's got talent, but a little too much like Ozil where he disappears for 85 minutes and then produces one magical touch.  Personally - due to CANMNT potential - I'd rather see Ballou in there playing the creative (non-defending) forward.
    The back is equally complicated.  You have Binks with loads of potential, same for ZBG, Waterman who we’d all like to see succeed (because CANMNT).  Fanni has to play, you’re paying Camacho a ton of money, Raitala is your captain. 
    With a back 3, Raitala logically takes the LWB role, but that’s not his best position and Lassi provides more speed and offensive threat.  
    Henry seems set on playing a back 3, I love the system but i’m not sure it gets the best 11 on the pitch.
    Best 11 is probably:
    -----------Quioto - Bojan
    Lassi - Wanyama - Taider - Okwonkwo
    Raitala - Binks - Fanni - ZBG
     
    The lineup I want to see:
    Tabla - Quioto - Okwonkwo  
    Lassi - Wanyama - Taider - ZBG
    Binks - Fanni - Waterman
    However, this leaves the two captains and even more money and talent on the bench: Raitala, Piette, Bojan, Camacho, Urruti.

    That was ugly tonight against the Revs.   I know it's only one game and between the new manager and Covid, it's been hard to build a lot of cohesion in the team.  You have to wonder where the goals will come from?
    Piette at RWB is just dumb.  I sure hope that never happens again.

    He's not far from that. 
    At this point, we're not looking for someone to step up and be all Virgil Van Dijk.  All we need from our CB's at the moment is: decent athleticism, focus on positioning and limit the mistakes/fouls.  Just keep it simple.  They don't need to be dominant, simple game and limit the mistakes, just that would give us a strong chance of being really competetive.

    That was how much they paid for Sanches last year, their highest ever transfer.
    If 25M is their starting point, they'll likely go a bit higher.

    All Piette needs is ~6 games per year for 8 more years to reach 100.  Very likely he'll still be a major factor at 33.  National teams tend to play with lineups way more than clubs.  Factor in tournaments and injuries (which never happen to him - the guy is made of steel), and he can reach it.
