    Tomori should clearly move to the more sane and stable environment of the CMNT.

    Let me get this straight, you come on here ******** about the slogan "We The North", complaining that it "doesn't even make sense". And to make your point you decided to lead off with such great usage of the english language yourself: "oh god, so cringe" ??? GTFOH!

    Eh. I'm stil very, very much against "CanPL", personally. No other Canadian league (CFL, CHL, etc.), organization (RCAF, RCN, RCMP, etc.), business (CBC, CTV, etc.) or group (CNIB, etc.) *ever* abbreviates "Canada"/"Canadian" to "Can". In my opinion, #CPLorbust.

    It is a new thing. It is called 'having a pretty damn talented team'. It does take some getting used to 😉. Years of disappoinment have made me pretty fragile. But I think at this point we should be confident in this group and expect the best and not the worst.

    ^ Agreed. And after seeing 1 game of Alphonso Davies I'm willing to soften on the whole, only go where you can get significant minutes. Davies only saw sparse first team minutes and 2nd team minutes in much lower competition but training with elite world talents has clearly helped him.

    It is a great situation to be in. If he stays at Gent, he will continue to develop at a very respectable club and will likely lock down a starting role tha will give him great experience. If he moves on, it will only be to a club willing to make the kind of investment required to pry him away from Gent - which means that they will likely give him the chance to maximize his development. Given his age, I am perfectly happy with either option for the coming season. And he has kicked off his GC in a way that will likely increase interest in him whether it leads to a move or not.

    Environment Canada (the only weather source I trust) has no rain in the forecast for Thursday. Hope it holds.

    The comments about the Raptors are about as dumb as those you hear from people who dislike soccer and then come up with all sorts of categorical criticisms of nitpicky stuff. It just sounds like sour grapes from the outside looking in. If you like the NBA, and the Raptors, and watched the games, the entire playoffs were amazing, the character of the team was quite admirable (really no prima donnas, not like the Warriors team), the marketing and branding was superb, the slogans are very well done and people should take a lesson (compare to Strength in Numbers for Golden State, which I take to mean the have the refs on their side). It is very strong example of sporting success and organisational success. Even the way they built the team, the very radical decisions made by the FO a year ago, almost without precedent, are worthy of study: the difference between being very good and wanting to be champion. TFC should take a lesson. For me, the only thing that is pure self-aggrandizing showboating is the Drake business, he is just a mediocre musician, and as a person, lower than that. But I'll give him this: no one can keep harping about a Drake curse after the Leafs went down.

    They don’t talk about it on Sportscentre but I have seen them mention the league several times during MLS broadcasts. Luke Wileman in particular mentions it about once a game it feels like. Once they even showed highlights (I think of the inaugural game) during halftime of a game.

    If healthy is he not our top defender? He’s anything but a “depth move”. he’s either match fit and in our starting XI or injured and providing 0 depth

    I don’t get all this confidence of us going through. Yes we should beat Cuba but a close loss to Mexico and a loss to Cuba and that’s a wrap for the Gold Cup

    You could be mostly right, but if you have not experienced some form of discrimination of an arbitrary nature for reasons of difference, you should not be posting such stuff. And if you have, you'd know better. There are lots of places in Canada, probably a majority, where you cannot be an out lesbian with any kind of comfort at all. Watched Kerr score 4 today, all needed (it was 2-1 and S Africa attacking when she got the third), goals to ensure a classification. Not even the first was celebrated as childishly as Rapinoe et al with their umpteenth for the team.

    This is another good reason to go with CanPL - as we were asked to do from the beginning. It sounds and looks far more distinctive than "CPL".

    I’m surprised people have Godinho over ZBG on RB for the important games. Godinho was not as good as ZBG from what I seen last game. Could be rust, but I think ZBG has shown better for Canada so far.

    Looks to me like ticket sales are just sub 5500 right now, so if the weather is good, walk up sales would easily take us over 6000, but if the rain forecast holds up, probably not. Fingers crossed we get good weather 🤞

    Has been one of the most successful marketing campaigns in sports history. A whole country cheerong for a basketball team from a city the rest of the country hates. Did you see the streets of Toronto today? Not sure if I'll live to see soccer capture the Canadian imagination the way We The North basketball just did. And good marketing slogans seldom depend on making sense. They pull on strong emotions and ideas of shared identity. If the CSA could come up with a marketing campaign a tenth as successful we might actually start getting crowds out for CanMNT games.

    CONCACAF Nations League - Venue Discussions

    Pacific FC kicks off a home the exact same time as Canada v Cuba. 😡 The CSA should make it a rule that Professional games in Canada (MLS and CanPL) cannot be played from 1 hr before to one hour after CMNT games. If this league is supposed to be supporting the CMNT, that should include the supporters.

    You go for win to avoid playing against Costa Rica in the quarter finals. Plus, this is a good game to test our players to see how good they're against the best in CONCACAF. CMNT has depth to beat Cuba so that should be "rest" game.

    I saw the same old Davies. The pass to Hoilett was brilliant, and it was a great performance for sure, but not the best we've ever seen from him. His final pass looks to have improved, which is exciting, but we'll see if he can do it against stronger competition and on a consistent basis.
