  1. Or CANPL..... Heck, I would venture to say TFC and overtake bloody Justin's Morrow spot at lb... Of course, this is very unlikely to happen, at least when he first arrives, let alone being signed by TFC and it's bloody American focused bias as nobody really knows what this kid can offer and quality he brings... I've seen very little of him (mostly Youtube clips), but he does seem to carry a little bit of that South American style/flair you would see from your average South American/Conmebol player.... Whether its Valour joining his identical twin brother or any other CANPL side, would be a good move and bode well for the CANPL.... CANPL should really strive for these types of singing, lol... I personally would like him to come to Forge, as it will give me the opportunity to see him up close, lol and see what he is all about... Another user once stated that this kid does have some game!!!... Just needs to go to a place where he can get regular playing time... As others have mentioned would address an area of need for us as well from a CANMNT perspective, but inexperience still lingers in the fullback roles!!!! 😕
  2. Plus the fact his identical twin brother is already in the CANPL and seemed to have had a solid season, should bolster the case for him to come over!!!... In fact, Valour originally tried brining both of the twins together, or so went the rumour!!!!... Will give us a chance to see what he is all about too!!!!
  3. We should never, ever see Unattached FC again, lmfao!!!!!
  4. I guess he should be our next top target since losing Tomori together with Amuz (the latter filling in a much needed area of weakness ) as it seems that after Amuz he is the one that is gradually getting more primed to regular playing time in a professional environment. Last year, it was highly rumoured that Herdman has him in mind as one of his next biggest recruit (published by Sportsnet after Tabla's commitment). Not to mention he could be a good successor to Arfield once age starts to catch up to him!!!! 😉
  5. Well, that is some optimism there, now let's all hope the CSA does not eff up this opportunity and goes all in!!!!!!!
  6. R u bloody serious????????? .... Really hope this rumour is incorrect!!!!.... What type of camp is the CANWNT having in France?????
  7. After giving it some more thought last night as I struggled to fall asleep and nearing the 1 week of that disastrous performance, I echo the thoughts of many in here of what on earth Herdman was thinking when it came to changing formation & tactics for last week's game !!!! Here is what I came up with: Goalie plus the back 4 unchanged from the game in Toronto (Cornelius & Vitória as the CB pairing & Kamal Miller as our LB, tbf he played well in Toronto in that role), Davies in attacking role on the left wing and Hoilett on the opposite wing, David in that number #10 role that many in here are calling for (me, myself would like to see that too next time around) and Cav. up top!!!! In centre of midfield I would have had MAK & Piette (Piette moving just beneath the CBs as usual providing that defensive coverage and doing his usual stuff of breaking up plays, tackling in the MF area and his usual diagonal passes when getting on the attack) with MAK acting as a box-to-box... Pretty confident that formation, could have yielded us the result we needed (talking more on the lines of a draw, lol) My subs would have been Hoilett for Liam Millar Cav for Arfield/Osorio MAK for Eustáquio Otherwise, the formation where we had Davies & David in an attacking/striking partnership would of been good too!!!... It looks like the 2 do have some good chemistry together, something I did not really see with Cav & David paired up together honestly! If only!!!!!..... Here are my 2 cents on last week's reflection, lol... Just finished re-watching the 2nd half, as that's where I pretty much left off and agree with everyone on Eustáquio, lots of reasons to be high on that guy & joyful of him for joining our national hold... Man, that guy has some special passing game, let alone vision to find the open guys across the field!!!! 😉 On another note realized that for defenders, in CBs there are not many promising up & comers with good upsides save for perhaps Cornelius for now & Kamal Miller (although Herdman seems to prefer him on the LB) .. Hence, a guy like Martín Amuz would be massive to pursue! Our fullbacks, are too inexperienced and not many veteran established options there to provide a little bit of that leadership role (like Vitória seems to be doing in the CB group and David Edgar previously)... Left back we are very thin/weak at, as if we exclude Davies from that position, we don't really have anybody besides Kamal Miller, Adekugbe and Cóordoba (who can also fill in that role).. Hopefully we get Bassong in the mix, but am not sure if he is playing regular pro minutes at Cercle Brugge... Herdman in one past interview last year mentioned him as someone he is looking at, though, not specifically but mentioned about some players involved in youth teams from Ligue 1/2 and named Lille (which was the team he was involved in, before moving into Cercle Brugge)... Would happen to be the same league/environment of David & Larin too, lol
  8. I would agree!!!!... Especially after losing Tomori and in dire need of a CB with good potential (never seen him, but must have some as he is starting to get regular playing time in a decent-quality South American league, where many players go on to make successful careers in big-name clubs) certainly worth pursuing!!!!... Not to mention he happens to be the same age as Tomori, lol!!!!!..... Someone else already reported that Biello is already tracking him!!!! Might be the closest thing to getting a promising CB involved in our program!!!!!... Def, the Olympic qualifier should be the starting point!!!
  9. You absolutely echo me there (regarding the lack of friendlies) and the pressure/hole the bloody CSA has now put themselves into!!!!!!😡 They have to be delusional if they sit on their laurels and provide no solution to the situation!!!!... Look where this stance has gotten them, to look no further!!! CSA gotta leave all bloody frugality aside and right the ship on this!!!!.... We should all send in a petition, lmfao!!!! 😉
  10. Bloody pathetic, but in all honesty we got nothing but ourselves to blame for not getting the s***t done the oner night, let alone the scheduling of semi-competitive friendlies for the entirety of last year (save for the lone game in Mar.) and not adding friendlies with our CNLQ, arghhhhh!!!! 😡😡...... Would have been sooo helpful to schedule a friendly with quite a stronger FA than any we have played during the CNLQ in all those windows for christ sake!!!!.... Stupid CSA so complacent, namely the man in charge of our national team for dismissing friendlies as games with no meaning/purpose... Now they want to act when it is far TOO LATE!!!!!. I guess we need to settle for the long route for WC qualification (if we even make it there, lmfao)
  11. How about playing some Conmebol FAs, save for the top 4, obviously as I would not be comfortable myself at all, especially with everything that is at stakes between now and next June!!!.... The top 4 I consider to be the Brazils, Argentinas, Uruguruays & Colombias of the world, lol... This is just based on current form/performance plus gut feeling as well, lol... Being a descendant from two Conmebol nations, I am pretty familiar with their national teams and generally follow the Copa Américas + WCQ in the region!!!! I think Bolivia is a perfect opponent of the Conmebol crop and hate to say, but beatable (I think we got the group of players to beat a side of that level) unless we play in La Paz, which likely go horribly long as I don't think our players would be up to handle the massive sea level altitude there, lmfao The middleweights from the region would be a good test in themselves, but likely risky, but would be flattered to play someone like say Venezuela, Ecuador, Perú, Chile or Paraguay.... If it is a home friendly, I think we can give them a real run for their money to some of these teams, but if it's away or even in neutral venue, some of these teams would scare me (as some have solid attack and pretty tactical defensively) , but with our s***tty defence, especially away from home, would not be 100 % confident!!!... Lots of quick wingers, technical players in these sides That's my suggestion for friendlies.... Playing anyone within our region I guess would do, say someone like Jamaica, T & T, Haiti, Curaçao, El Salvador , Guatemala, Panama, Costa Rica would do the trick!!!!...
  12. On the note of friendlies, as it most likely (99 % certainty) will be mandatory come the new year (CSA would be bloody stupid/lunatic to not schedule any given the stakes of somehow cracking the Hexagonal round) and likely against solid competition, I am wondering if everything needs to be done by Mar. or will we have a chance to schedule games in Mar. + the Fifa date in June, which at times is at the very end of May to garner up Fifa Points for the Fifa World Rankings release date in June , as that will determine our odds of whether we made the Hex or not!!!!.... Like all of us, bites me to see that bloody El Salvador can get away with cracking the final Hex Spot ahead of ourselves without having many if any player of notoriety!!!!!! 😡.... With all respect, I'm sure they have some solid quality players in there, but none who is well-known across the fútbol world, let alone Concacaf!!!!.. Mean I am no expert on their player pool, but from the little bit I have seen/heard of that, there are no players familiar to the average fútbol fan out there or Concacaf followers!... The few Salvadorean people I have chatted with about fútbol, have always indicted that there is nothing special within their national teams and are big time underachievers Someone pointed out that most of their player pool is domestic based , with a couple in MLS and a few in Thailand (which seems to be an interesting league as someone from outside of here commented to me last night).. Just need a little clarity about our Hex implications!!!
  13. I guess that is the only good thing from an otherwise disastrous/forgetful performance from Fri. night!!!!!..... Needless to remember!!!!... It's too bad I left at the time he came on and missed all of his good plays that everyone in here is describing!!!!... I'll check out his plays later and like everyone else, so pumped to have him in our program and commit quite early, particularly with the events from last night!!!! 😢 Hopefully his time at Cruz Azúl could be a springboard for him to bigger & better things in the not too distant future, another positive is that it looks like he has fully healed from that devastating injury earlier on the year/Cruz Azúl career to the point that Cruz Azúl may be re-considering parting ways with him!!!!.... Sure hope he wins a starting MF position at Cruz Azúl and patrols that midfield with my peruano compatriot Yotún!!!!😉...... A player worth following his progress for sure in the next little while until we (cough, cough) reconvene again, lmfao!!!!
