Another Sportsnet article but now focused on Atiba.

The match against Dominica in Toronto was Hutchinson’s first under new coach John Herdman, and what immediately struck the native of Brampton, Ont., were the waves of positivity surging throughout the Canadian camp, and how the confidence emanating from his teammates was palpable.

“We want to be the best team here and want to make Canada known in the soccer world. That’s what we all talk about when we speak to each other one-on-one or as a group. We’re here to win the tournament. That’s the way we’re approaching it. We feel as though we can go out there and play against the best in Concacaf. We haven’t played any big opponents in the last little while, but the results have gone our way and we’ve been dominant in games,” Hutchinson said.

“It’s definitely still in my thoughts, but nothing is for sure right now. I’m just going to see how it goes over the next few weeks. It’s in my mind right now, but I’ll sit down with John [Herdman] and also my family and figure it out. I’m up there in age, and my body isn’t what it used to be. I’ve been thinking a lot about it and what I want to do, but now we’re here at the Gold Cup, and I’ll leave final decisions up to when it’s over,” Hutchinson explained.

Strange that we get two articles a day from Sportsnet on the Gold Cup (Molinaro and Galindo) yet nothing from TSN who's covering it!

TSN posted one about Davies earlier today.

I think @spitfire has the best likes to posts ratio in the history of this board.  I guess I just need to sire an elite athlete.  :)

It is the cheapest way to "win the day" ever.  All you have to do is raise a CMNT player and then make insightful comments sprinkled with insider information.

Pfft.

Don't think I don't remind my ten year old every goddamn day that he's the reason why I'm stuck at less than 1,200 likes.  If he could only run 4.5 40-meter and put a little bend in his free kicks, I'd get some goddamn respect around here.

I don't think TSN has any on the beat soccer reporters. Even for TFC games they just use Canadian Press reports. They do have an article about Davies, but that's from CP as well.

You get goddamn respect for your unwavering support of Pedro Pacheco (or was it Gavin McCallum)?

This is like listening to my bedtime conversation with the kids every single day...

By Pedro Pacheco, you mean the Canadian Xavi?  He's the heart of my all-time midfield:

 

Friend - Kusch

Simpson - Pacheco - Nash - Bent

Hastings - Serioux - De Vos - Stalteri

Stamatopoulos

 

That's some serious grit, right there.

Add Jaimie Peters, Bunbury, Pesch and Forrest on the bench and you;ve got a world beater.  

Jaime Peters in his prime aka 19 years old.  Imagine the guy turned out half of his potential, he would be on this gold cup team still.

I always thought Xavi was the Spanish Dale Mitchell.

My local Sport Check has the new Jersey, in red white and black. 

Grabbed one too... I actually like the fit and comfort of the jersey.
