    Given that Wynne/Marhsall/Velez/Brennan are are possibilities for National time duty, they'll get their share of playing time.

    I would like to see them play. But I guess that Carvers thought is if it is not broken do not fix it.

    i think carver is confident with the back 4 that hes using right now as he has every right to because they been doing a good job last couple games.

    They will get some playing time in the CC matches. I think Carver will want to rest some of his regulars against the weaker teams from the USL.

    It will be their opportunity to impress the coach and if so you will see them when some of the regulars have international duties (Wynn, Edu, Guevera etc)

    Some MLS clubs do that for USOC, but Carver already said he's playing his top 11. CCL entry is just too valuable a prize.

    The season is going to be long so players like Tebily, James, Rosenlund. Phalen, Lombardo will get some playing time.

    Does anyone else think the long stretch of not playing these past 2 weeks will really hurt Velez???

    I think it will hurt him! and i had a nightmare last night that Velez's good little run that he has been having will come crashing down in flames on Saturday...I think that Velez will lose the game for us, thus ending our streak, and he will be relagated to the bench!! oh man what a fucking nightmare!!

    These two will see some playing time eventually but I don't think Carver is going to change things up until he has to. Velez had a rough start to the season but he's improved with every game and Carver must see something in him to keep him on the field. I think with the group of games over the next little while you'll see some of the bench players with some more playing time, if not an occasional start.

    Weaker USL teams, you mean like the whitecaps that beat the galaxy when they fielded their best squad??

    They will get playing time when national duty comes around, but not until then, unless we get rocked in a game with several defensive lapses, then he might switch it up, tillt hen you will see the same back four.

    I think certain players like Velez are on the bubble. He's been enjoying a good run as of late and Carver is doing well to keep him in there. However, if he shits the bed in the next game you'll see either James or Tebily get the start in the following game.

    No, i don't think all of USL is on par....but, that being said...I think Vancouver and Montreal actually field pretty good teams that can definitely compete! i guess time will tell..

    Velez will for sure see National duty, no doubt about it.

    Remember The Man, The Legend, The Goal 5-12-07 and All That #9 Left On The Pitch, Thanks For The Memories !!!

    Fair enough - and what I'm saying is that I feel it is a far bigger accomplishment to win the MLS cup and be the best of the MLS than to win the Canada Cup and be better than Montreal and Vancouver. That is why it is a no brainer for me as to which one is more important.

    Never suggested that TFC couldn't lose to Montreal or Vancouver, but certainly we are the more talented team.

    Agreed!

    The good thing about all this is...We have John Carver at the helm!! Thank God!! I love that man! Carver will not allow the team to slip! because if they do, not even god can save them from the verbal blasting the team will get in the locker room!! and the beauty is that he will tell the loser who slipped up, to take a fucking seat on the bench! while he fields someone who is hungrier then the next guy...

    the fact that we are 6 games in and havn't seen a minute of these guys speaks volumes of our depth and health compared to last year.

    We've been beaten by USL teams twice in the past year. The first time, we got our asses handed to us completely. We shouldn't take these games lightly, but we really should expect to win with our improved squad.

    I would think one of them, if not both, will be used as subs in the upcomming games. Or if someone gets injured (knock on wood), they would be in the line-up and prove they are starting postition worthy.

    The back four hasn't conceded a goal from open play in the last three matches. Do you really think that it's time to start changing players around? I sure don't.
