The greatest Canadian footballer in one of the biggest derbies in the world.  Do we still have questions?

FWIW Piette has been on the Amalfi coast crushing limoncellos and won't have played in 1 month.  I too thought he was outstanding against the USA and maybe he can somehow pair with Atiba, but if it's one or the other it's Atiba for me.

Just for the record on my opinion, I think it's MAK or HUTCH (who take the spot of where Fraser/MAK played), not replace Hutch with Piette.

Although as mentioned above by JuciyHam, we likely will see an entire different formation set up anyway, so who knows.

If anyone will be down there on the nights of the 14th and 15th, I would be happy to split accommodation costs. Some of the other possibilities fell through so I am looking for options with a preference for crashing in the same place both nights.

Its funny that everyone is talking about Piette and Hutch and MAK when the real selection issue is between Cornelius, Vitoria and Henry.

Excellent point, for me it's Cornelius & Vitoria. I personally go with the same pairing, but I'm just an arm chair manager. :)

When is the roster release? Saw the womens roster released today and for a split second thought it was the mens. 

Last month it was released exactly 2 weeks before the game. Tomorrow is 2 weeks

TFC in MLS Cup on the 10th could complicate things.  Osorio, Laryea, and Fraser could be distracted.  If TFC lose they'll be on a downer and if they win they'll be expected to do the obligatory drunken bacchanal and parade routine that comes after.  Frankly, there's no time for that with the USA game just a few days after.

Wouldn't that be the same for Bradley, Roldan and Morris?

Here's something to get right. Based on what we have seen. Piette is our best defensive midfielder. Maybe the best in Concacaf

He might not be the best CDM on the team, let alone the confederation...

Yes, absolutely but I think the point is that while they should be called they might not be in a mental mindset to throw everything into this - which is crucial here.  Especially if TFC wins.. we're going to have guys showing up to camp after a parade or (maybe even worse) missing the parade?  Maybe it matters, maybe it doesn't... but it's concerning for sure.

The Americans are different because they'll be out for their pride/revenge and locked in IMO.

Wait Fraser plays for TFC? 

You learn something new everyday.

No Altidore (which makes sense since he’s been injured for a while) or Morris. I think Morris hurts them while the other “surprises” (Bradley , roldan ) might be addition by subtraction.

So the US is having a pre camp with their available MLS players.  

We should be doing the same with our MLS / CPL players.  

Hahaha c'mon, you're smarter than that to suggest it.

Pre - game should never be any issues :). If anything some American supporters might be discretely cheering for us for their manager gets sacked before WCQ starts... I'm not even joking. 

I pre-booked parking a bit closer for same price and they allow tailgate (bring your own) and do not have to be hackled by the outlaws...We will be a group of 8

So we are tailgating then?  Not a restaurant/pub?

Why not!

Roster coming today ? Maybe ?

Last time the roster came out on Tuesday October 1st,  which was the Tuesday before the international window began.

The equivalent would be Tuesday, November 5th this time.

After the club games this weekend would make sense.

 

EDIT: The USA will announce their full squad on November 6th
