We can only make our case as to why he should join us (assuming we want him), the decision is his.

That said, I'll take every bit of top shelf talent we can manage.

Why would it be stealing if the kid wants to play for a specific country?

I have seen him play with the RSL academy, he was good, but the RSL academy player I think will be a massive player for RSL in a few years time is Bofo Saucedo.

Bofo and Doughty are really good friends, so the US has that going for them.

England, USA, or Canada? Hard to say whom he will indefinitely choose in the future.

Well England is well ENgland. Have massive talent but almost every time it ends in embarrassment
Canada well no world cup or anything
Choice is clear if they look at it like that

I'd be thrilled if he committed to the US. Klinsmann is gonna go super hard after this kid once he gets his passport.

But he has options.

I'm gonna keep a close eye on this kid.

Canada could be hosting the 2026 World Cup. He'll be in his prime at that point.

Canada needs to get their act together. Hell yea we should steal all Canadians, as well as keep that oil from the keystone pipe they are about to approve. As the American delegate says so perfectly in the beginning of the South Park movie: (clears throat) "f*** Canada"!

Just like when we stole basketball or John Candy.

In all seriousness, the kid isn't really Canadian in mind, just "officially" on paper. If he played for Canada, it would be like they stole him from USA. Could be just another Thorrington though so let's not get crazy.
