28 May ‘We have no control over it at all – but you want to put yourself in the best position for when you come back.’
RECAP – TFC’s Liam Fraser and FC Cincinnati’s Nick Hagglund join Footy Talks Live!
With the Bundesliga back in full swing, Luke, KJ and Stevie looked back on Der Klassiker and highlighted the revitalization of Thomas Muller as key to Bayern’s success, even though it was Kimmich who picked up the man of the match performance.
Dubbed ‘roadrunner’ by Muller – the gang discussed the continued rise of Alphonso Davies, and whether or not his pace allows him to compensate for some defensive weaknesses.
Toronto FC’s Liam Fraser was the latest player to give his views on training within the social distancing guidelines, as well as breaking down how much time he thought the squad would need to be match fit and mentally ready.
‘You go from playing everyday for the past ten years to not being able to play at all […] We have no control over it at all – so you want to put yourself in the best possible position when you come back.’ @TorontoFC‘s Liam Fraser #TFCLive #FootyTalks pic.twitter.com/GElGvcTZEL— Footy Talks (@FootyTalksLive) May 28, 2020
FC Cincinnati’s Nick Hagglund talked us through a fine headed goal in TFC’s victory over Portland Timbers in 2014, while the gang carefully studied replays of a Stevie own goal from the same game – with some debate (from Stevie) about the call.
Hagglund also spoke about his desire to bring success to his hometown club by emulating the togetherness and cohesion he felt at TFC, and about the potential impact of their new manger – Man United legend Jap Staam.
