Cheeta Posted February 1, 2007 Share Posted February 1, 2007 Yes and no. By intensity I mostly mean just that. Some might disagree, but you can not seperate mental intensity from the physical fact. To do so is to accept make believe. The test is in the physical intensity and the ability to maintain that mental intensity, that focus, that delivery of quality, under physical trial. I don't know if the way I'm expressing myself makes any sort of sense, but I hope I'm making the point. And in CONCACAF, all you need to do is win at home to go through. To the HEX, the WC or at worse a playoff spot. September/October in Vancouver (or for future refernce, Toronto) isn't Houston in June, July or January for that matter. Bit off topic but I've brought this up before and since the door has been left open I'll bring it up a-gin. Why would we, Canada, want to play a style of football our CONCACAF rivals are familiar with and comfortable playing? Especially, when our strengths aren't magnified by playing this style? Wouldn't we much rather play to our strengths, in a style and system which our CONCACAF enemies wouldn't otherwise encounter, and therefore be the least prepared to deal with, as opposed to playing a brand of football that they ARE more familiar with? Keeping in mind that all we have to do is win-at-home. 9 points last go around got you through to the HEX. We got 1 point at home, and gave up 7. That, is rubbish.
