Maybe Cavallini can't stand hearing himself lie and feels the truth is better. But even when you're talking about your club team, you have to give lip service to loyalty. No one likes a mercenary. It bursts the bubble of our "imagined community", especially when it comes to countries. At the very least you can be honest about how close you feel to it while praising the opportunities its given you.

So you are saying that some fans prefer mercenaries who lie to those that don't, and those are the good mercenaries. Because they hide the reality from fans, who are too sensitive to take the truth?

In Canada we forget we are a losing soccer nation, then go about slagging our players from this same losing mentality. Beggars can't be choosy.

I personally just take it that a huge percentage of players are pretty ignorant and, of course, uneducated, and have no control over what they are saying. The best player in the world is a dolt, and the second best, not the brightest. Every so often one comes along who can talk, but it is like 10-15%. They are not even able to analyse the games they just played. Compare that with the tennis pros, I was listening to Nadal today and he analysed the game point by point, it was a technical analysis of the Krygios match in detail. Rarely I've seen a footballer do this.

Then fans come along expecting something else.

^^^   Agreed 100%!

 

I'll continue to be a fan of the honest to a fault, hard-working, battering ram of a striker who helps his team and scores goals.  You guys can keep hoping for that great player on the field who becomes a well spoken politician in front of the microphone to show up!

I remembered it was 8-1, but in fairness to you, I think it was 7-0 when I changed the channel for the well being of myself and everyone and everything around me.

It was a great goal!

It was "but it wasn't really Canada scoring", and "we didn't need it anyways". And on and on.

Oops, are you talking about the one vs Honduras, or Cavallini's?

Or were they pretty well of the same value?

Don't you think that just maybe, every player on the team wants to play in a World Cup?

Just saying!

Of course they do but what I meant was if we we're  NOT hosting 2026 maybe he would't be here. Who knows. just saying.

We've got 2022 to work towards first. One bad injury and anyone of those guys careers are over. I don't think anybody is banking on 2026 although they'll be hoping. 

Six years is a long ways away.

did he say he isn't Canadian in this one too or could he keep it together? 

He actually said that he's a " Canadian boy" at one point. I guess it depends on who's asking. 😀
