Ricardo Ferreira

Recommended Posts

The 21 year old CB from Toronto has left AC Milan on a bosman and has signed with Olhanense of the Superliga. He started for them today:

The fact he left Milan bodes well for our chances, but the fact he is still so young and is now starting for a pro club in Portugal does not. Maybe i'm just a sucker, but i refuse to close the door on a talented player that might help us qualify for the World Cup.

I don't want to start a new thread for Steven Vitoria so i will add to this existing thread on Ferreira.

Vitoria has not seen the field yet this season for Benfica and has only been on the bench twice in 12 league games for them (Benfica are tied for 1st place). Appears that he is behind Luisao and Ezequiel Garay who are the starters, so likely not breaking into the starting XI anytime soon. He has played 6 times for the Benfica B team in the 2nd division and scored 2 goals.

Ferreira started the first two games of the season and got hurt in the second game, he has since played in 2 league and 2 cup games since coming back in late September.

If this is a de facto Mother of all Defective Ontarians Abroad list then it is worth noting that Teal Bunbury won the MLS Cup today and was on the bench for the final: http://golazo.mlssoccer.com/matchcenter/2013-12-07-sporting-kansas-city-vs-real-salt-lake/recap

What difference a creative two-footed attacker and two big and solid CBs would make to our lineup I guess we'll never know.

This is why i refuse to write these two guys off completely. Could you imagine having these guys and David Edgar as our CB options?
