  1. Finally watched the highlights of the Impact\DC United game. Saw the ZGB run down the right flank, cutting into the box and forcing the goalkeeper to make a acrobatic save. Don't remember who the defender was but ZGB just pulled away from him like nothing.
  2. Also can't forget Eustaquio who's not in the Gold Cup mix with his knee injury but that's another quality midfielder.
  3. Not only does Kaye have the higher ceiling, I think he's above Piette right now. Don't get me wrong, I love Piette and if my life depended on someone winning a 50-50 ball, I'd choose him over Kaye but in every other aspect, Kaye is a better player.
  4. I watched the game. Gent player collided with CB player on a 50-50 ball and was airborne. On the way down, he makes a deliberate raking motion with his boot across the player's thigh. Ref had to go to VAR to get it right. As for David, he just finds open players and makes the right plays. Also, maybe it's me but it doesn't seem like the other Gent players are going out of their way to feed David in the attacking half.
  5. Gent is a decent Europa level team. Since becoming a regular starter for Gent back in January, David is probably one of the top 2 or 3 players for the team.
  6. If Davies played today, what would have been the formation? 4-3-3 with Davies playing up front on the right and David dropping to CAM? Or David and Cav up front and Davies and Hoilett on the wings in a 3-5-2? I can see why Gent is playing David as CAM becaus his play making is right up there with his scoring. David just turned 19 back in January but his game is crazy mature. I'm starting to think Gent is going to get an offer for David similar to what Vancouver got for Davies.
  7. From his Syracuse video on page 1 of this thread, he's left footed.
  8. With all due respect, outside of Celtic and Ranger, the league is pretty bad. I watch a lot of streaming video when Miller and David are playing and the Belgian Jupiler League is miles better. Same for MLS. Drop the top 4 teams from SPL and MLS and you'll see that MLS teams have far higher player budgets, infrastructure, revenue streams, etc. The disparity gap between the top and bottom teams is nowhere as bad compared to SPL. Now, if Millar actually got into the game day 18 with the top team, that would be an entirely different discussion altogether. Same for Tabla. There are loads of U20's, U-23's, etc., who don't get a sniff of the game day roster.
  9. I think people who have only seen David play for Canada or highlights of his goals don't appreciate how good a distributor he is. He's a very positive player and decisive when he receives the ball, unlike some players who've never met a back pass they didn't like. I think David is best with the ball when he has attackers in front of him so an ideal formation would be Cav as sole target man and supported by wingers when Canada is attacking, something like a 3-5-1-1 formation.
  10. David had the hockey assist on a great through ball, literally between the defender's legs. At around 1.50 in the video. Notice how deep he is. Gent has him playing mostly CAM and I think that's his best position because he sees the field so well that his play making abilities would be wasted at forward. http://www.footballhighlights247.com/gent-oostende-goals-and-highlights.65vs83.html
  11. David got the hockey assist at 1.50 in the following video but it was still a heck of a pass. http://www.footballhighlights247.com/gent-oostende-goals-and-highlights.65vs83.html
  12. Sanchez is a box-t-box mid and when I watched him in the Euro final with Portugal, he looked destined for stardom and everyone thought Bayern got a bargan at $40M Euros for this guy. Three and a half years from Euro, Sanchez still hasn't established himself and is already making noises about lack of playing time. Even for Bayern, it's be tough to swallow a $25M or $30M Euro haircut on this guy when he finally gets sold back to Sporting or Benefica so they're trying to give him minutes when they can.
  13. I think Bayern still has hopes of salvaging some value for Sanchez. After all, they paid way more for him than for Davies.
  14. I subscribe to The Athletic and the quality of the writing is excellent. Well worth the price of a couple of large coffees a month.
