Logic would lead me to believe that the July rankings will be used because they will include the Gold Cup results...but stranger things can happen.

Will the CONCACAF preliminary round be played earlier because they need to cut down the numbers before they start with the first group stage.

Stranger things have already happened. The 2006 qualifying draw was held in December of 2003. CONCACAF used the May 2003 rankings. Of course it is merely a coincidence that T&T failed to qualify for the Gold Cup that year... Right? ;)

Edit: Come to think of it. They did the same thing in 2007. Canada was 11th in May 2007, by July we were 4th. Into pot C we went...again.

We need to kill it at the Gold Cup
Is it in our best interest to have no competive games this fall?

Though how do they play the June 3 and June 7th preliminary matches if we don't have the draw until July? Yikes, that's only about 6-7 weeks away!

Being in the B pot is far more important than getting to perform 6 beatdowns on glorified men's league teams from the caribbean.
That only assumes we can't beat a pot B team. If we can't beat a pot B team, we're not going to Brazil. Last time, we couldn't beat a pot D team - and didn't have a single win.

Bigger question though ... the schedule we've seen has these June 3 and June 7 preliminary matches. Yet none are scheduled. I don't see how this is going to work.

We beat the pot D team in Phillip's Bakery's national team. Jamaica was a pot C team.
