But it’s not only the CSA, but’s its us the supporters too. Look at the votes and comments on how they are willing to given him another shot. We just accept losing !! Herdman made some huge mistakes and really it’s because of his  arrogance and lack of experience (  he had no idea what he was doing during that Haiti game,  just watch him he looked like a deer in headlights )  . He talked his BS and   He had the best team Canada has probably ever put together ( talent wise,  should’ve been a coaches dream ) well little Johnny couldn’t deliver. Where are your  standards Canadian Soccer fans?? Again I say this if he was coaching  A huge football nation they would run them out of the Country !!!  I would love to put a big sign facing the CSA  Head office in Ottawa just saying #HerdmanOUT!

It is funny how 25% of the people voting yes make 90% of the noise on this topic.   

As part of the silent 75%, I'll support Herdman on this until he's proven to me that he isn't up for the job.  This team will get better with time and experience.  So yes, keep Herdman (for now).

So losing, being a  arrogant idiot and making the program look like a laughing stock is not proof enough ? 

So what would it take for you ? Nations league lost, losing to the American’s,   not qualifying for the World Cup (  wasting away great talent like Arfield and others who are 28+)  ? Why does he have such a long  leash with you guys ? His record and action speaks for itself. 

Why is losing acceptable ?

A laughing stock? To who? A few dozens soccer nerds online?

No international media. You should watch what they said after the lose to Haiti.

Because I've been following this program since 1984 and I think this is the most positive I've been about the talent here.  The manager did not cause the 2-1 goal and he didn't cause the penalty to be given away.  So let's fire Borjan and Godinho while we are at it.

 Please enlighten me with a few links.

At 22:28 it starts with highlights of game. And there was a great sportnet article I posted earlier and I saw some things on European forms and even former players are  disgusted

No Borjan is top notch and made a mistake and Godinho is young but he should have been taken off but Herdman didn’t fix the problems when the game was getting away from us ?

I'm just happy this topic continues to be discussed and respectfully for the most part, there are some major concerns both with Herdman and the CSA he won't be fired too soon to be sure, the bar has to be raised though! 

There is a not very fine line between discussion and tantrum!

I understand the thinking of waiting, but you just can’t go around talking about playing the best teams in CONCACAF and finally when you do get to play as manager you put on the bench and play a style of play that minnows play when they are playing giants, when they want to  survive respectively. After you lose, you Try to justify your stupidity by saying oh we don’t want to show our hand to Mexico( like Tata has never managed before ) Then Throughout the week you talks about playing Mexico again in the semi’s when he’s got a game against Haiti coming up. Haiti beats you and the country and the world thinks your idiot! I’m sorry he doesn’t Deserve another chance he made the program look horrible,  because of his arrogance.

Unrealistic but completely hypothetical - It would be curious to see how many people would be on board with bringing back OZ.  I don't for one second believe the CSA would ever consider it, and judging by OZ's twitter feed, I highly doubt he would ever even consider it.  But hypothetically speaking, if the opportunity presented itself, I wonder how many people would swap out Herdman for OZ (all emotions aside).

I did not want OZ to be fired but since the CSA does an appalling job of communications I'm just going to have to accept that there was probably more to it than I know.

But now that Herdman is in, I'm going to give him a chance. And although our Gold Cup run ended in disappointment, there were plenty of positives that leave me very hopeful for how things will unfold.

That would be interesting.

It's the hope that kills you! There's a big difference between should he be fired and will he be fired and because the latter isn't going to happen soon we do have to sit back and see what happens and hope things get better! I think like myself many of us are still pissed about the collapse and opportunity lost with this talented squad!

International media cared about one minnow losing to another minnow ?!

Definitely made the rounds in latin american media. lots of poking fun at our mistakes, similar to the Larin miss from Gold Cup 2015. 

This Gold Cup did nothing for our reputation.

Why don't you provide us with just one link where a foreign media outlet has praised what Herdman has done with the CMNT? Just one? Just one, but not from Haiti, PLEASE! Cause we all know that they love him in Port au Prince. I bet you that Haitians love John Herdman so much, that they would love to play against him again in World Cup qualifying. The Fear of Herdman can be heard man all throughout the Caribbean and Central America. They're shaking in their boots, that how much they fear the Turdman!

The larin miss I get since it was a classic blooper.

”Canada loses to Haiti” as a story that garners any sort of interest internationally does surprise me though.

Why would I do that? Did I ever claim anything as ridiculous as calling the CanMNT “the laughing stock of the international media?”

If you’re calling for Herdman to be fired I hope you had that same energy for Hart, Floro and OZ.

Gotta love it “fire Herdman and bring back OZ”... uhhh we do realize both fell at the QF?  Also for those who recall, Zambranos last match was a disastrous outing against El Salvador - I’m not sure we mustered a single chance.  With Herdman I see positivity and I see a guy that players seems to like.  I didn’t like the hire but he’s done a good job so far - I’m not about to crucify the guy for a total team collapse.  

If we fire him we are kinda screwed sadly.  We start from scratch again and don’t have a tournament to prep prior to WCQ.

Look at this like our Belgium moment!  They failed to qualify for how many tournaments with young talent before they finally broke through.
