FC Edmonton launch/2019 offseason thread

Edem has physically gotten stronger and much faster since his last stint with FCE when he was a 19,20 year old. He also did not get along or fit into Colin's playing style and went on trials in Sweden, he ended up picking up a serious achilles injury prior to signing a contract in Sweden and has been rehabbing and training hard for a moment like this. Edem will shock the league with his play this upcoming season. 

Well, lets hope so. He has a big mountain to climb but hey, I honestly hope he proves me wrong.

They are chasing the league title this year, which they have never won and Albert Watson would have played for their manager previously when he was at Linfield, so not too surprising. Daryl Fordyce had a trial with Linfield last month as well as the Ballymena tryout mentioned in the article, so looks like he will probably be playing for somebody in Northern Ireland soon as well.

It’s exciting that FC Edmonton has a full enough roster that every position can be filled. Bruno Zebie is not typically a right back, but has played there in the past and same goes for Moses at CB. This is a roster which I am extremely excited about actually, i have been hoping Edmonton would look like this for a while.

Mortotsi will be higher up the pitch than that. Look for Allen and Yongchan as the two work horses in the middle. They'll be non stop pressing and closing down the ball. Hopefully they bring in a LB...............also look for mortotsi to be one of the better players in that roster this coming season.

I agree, Mortotsi is more the creative guy in the midfield. So he will be further up the pitch. I just needed to plug the d-mid position. And I totally agree about him being one of the better players. In my opinion, Mortotsi will be the biggest surprise to everyone in the league.

And I agree that Allen should be the workhorse in the middle, that is where he thrived before. But I am pretty sure I remember Jeff saying he would be using Allen as a fullback.

Fair enough. At least it's nice to see that we have multiple players that can play in more than 1 position this season. I see a lot of variations of a 4-3-3 from Jeff and his staff. We will need at least one more CB.

Looks like FC Edmonton has their front line including depth taken care of. There are a lot of players on this team that are going to surprise people.

Don't think they need to sign any more forwards/wingers!
