Baum works for my alma mater, BC. I think he's doing a decent job, like when he was here. 

Really good that the Terriers finally have something good going on.

That's a little bit of an oversimplification of the formation. The two CAMs work kind of like the reverse of the two CMs/CDMs. One will probably get forward a little more.

Maybe Royer is as good as Sacha and they can get forward will equal success. Then Muyl shouldn't back up either of them.

 

Not with the way they played yesterday.  Both spots were very interchangeable.  I understand Felipe and Davis (which they even did against Boy City) having a difference, but not as much Royer and Sacha.

 


ON a separate note, the more I see Royer, the more I think he's one of our top 5 best players.

Seems reasonable. At current rates that's about 2.1 million bucks. Plus there's room to negotiate because he's been barely used at WB and they are in danger of relegation.

I like him very much... Will be rooting for it to happen.  He's very skilled, a good passer of the ball and knows how to finish.

Agree on Royer, definitely a Top 5 player (Sacha, BWP, Collin, Robles?).  Sacha still got forward more than Royer yesterday, but it is more equitable than, say, Felipe & Dax were last season.  To me that means Muyl can't back either of them up if he's going to be charged with chance creation in that role.  Maybe if he comes for either Royer or Sacha the roles of the two positions change so we're not relying on Muyl to set up goals.

Ya, I agree on Muyl... That role means you have to be a good passer of the ball and that's Muyl's only current weakness.  It's not a great position for him.  Perhaps they envision using Muyl further up the field as depth for BWP and Veron.  Would be good considering his workrate and the fact that he can finish a little bit.

 

Grella should be fine subbing for Royer and Sacha considering he can pass the ball and has very good vision.

Grella was also a 9 in college.

 

I know, it's college, but he has "experience" there.

I was excited about having Royer for a full season and this game made me even more excited for it.

According to some here, college is the most important indicator of position.

He was also a 9 in England, right?

I saw that move against the Rat Urine guzzlers. Love what Royer's bringing.
