Inescapably Canadian Power Rankings: MLS Week 22/USL Week 20

I might owe Alphonso Davies some kind of apology.

Immediately, after learning of his rich transfer-in-waiting to Bayern Munich, I wondered how the Canadian teen would handle playing out the 2018 MLS season with the Vancouver Whitecaps. I wondered if it would be a lame-duck stretch run for Davies — would he take the foot off the gas, to make sure he’d be healthy as possible, as fresh as possible, for the Bavarian giants in January?

Davies got back into the Whitecaps lineup Saturday and showed us more shimmies and shakes than the Electric Circus. Two jaw-dropping goals and two assists later, Davies and the Whitecaps were celebrating a 4-2 home win over Minnesota United.

Davies, once again, was the main focus when it comes to Canadians playing in MLS and USL.

But, it wasn’t all rosy for Canadians this past week. You have to feel for Mark-Anthony Kaye, the former York University Lion who’d earned a regular starting sport with LAFC. Kaye fractured his ankle in a 2-2 draw with the Galaxy, an injury which derails what was a breakout season for the Canadian midfielder.

Meanwhile, as he heads into the final months of his contract — and, under FIFA rules, can soon start looking for work — Jonathan Osorio continued his torrid pace, scoring again for a Toronto FC team that looks to have finally turned a corner. A 3-0 win over Chicago was a reminder to the rest of MLS that, if Toronto surges into a playoff spot, there will be a reckoning in the fall.

As well, a salute to TFCII, which got its first win of the season, a 2-0 decision over Nashville which saw Matthew Srbely and Luca Uccello find the back of the net.

Here are the rankings after the 22nd week of MLS play/20th week of USL action:

    Darn shame about Kaye. He was just killing it week in and week out in LA. Here is hoping for a full and quick recovery.

      Is it just me or did the minutes disappear from the article? I could have sworn it was there when I first posted on this thread.

        Totally weird. They did totally disappear, and my version history doesn’t show that the file had been changed. I’ve restored the numbers from my back-up doc.
