  1. Agreed, this format is BS. The ranking that will be used is from June 2020? That will give us time to get into the top 6 providing we perform well in the Nations league. That would be our best chance, I think. After the upcoming Nations League matches what other opportunities will we have to increase our ranking? Would the likes of Honduras or El Salvador want to have friendlies with us in early 2020 or is there too much to lose for them? If we had nothing to lose and played a couple of friendlies against top 40 nations and we manage a draw or win, could that not help us? Nations League Groups that could impact our ranking. Who improves? Who goes backward? Honduras, T and T, Martinique El Salvador, St. Lucia, Montserrat, Dominican Republic Panama, Mexico, Bermuda Curacao, Haiti, Costa Rica Jamaica, Guyana, Antigua, Aruba Lots of questions for me. I have only a vague idea of how FIFA rankings even work. Another reason this is a bad idea.
  2. A slow start but found their rhythm and now just 45 minutes from a semi final place. Have to keep it tight at the back and not allow Haiti to gain confidence. 2 goal leads can be tricky.
  3. I will be on the Island to experience my first CPL match on Sunday. Pacific v Edmonton. Kickoff is same time as Canada Cuba? Any chance that kickoff for Pacific gets changed?
  4. Hmm I assumed this match would be on CBC as well. Is OneSoccer a paid subscription?
  5. Brilliant first match for our new Canadian league. Happy to see some familiar names, some of who played overseas and we never really knew, coming home to play in front of a Canadian crowd. We can already see the potential and no doubt there will be many success stories. Looking forward to seeing the Edmonton v Pacific match in Victoria in June.
  6. My barber has bein which you require a smart tv to watch. Lots of football content. He did say they show everything including Euro qualifying matches. I'm not sure that is necessarily true but I'll take him at his word. $12 per month. Can anyone comment on this?
  7. How is everyone watching the Euro 2020 qualifying matches?
  8. Very cool to see Atiba get one in a Canada shirt before he hangs them up. Too bad it won't be seen by many Canadian footy fans outside our forum.
  9. Exactly, and then after the game he mentioned that they had scored 1 more goal than they did the last time they beat Dominica as if they had improved under his leadership. Quite odd for sure. Improvements aren't always measured in goals especially against small island nations. Its always nice to see our guys score goals as it gives us something to cheer and boosts their confidence. We need that for sure. For a manager to point to it out in an interview makes him seem a bit naive.
  10. I believe that playing counter attacking football suits this team more,given the players we have at our disposal. Obviously couldn’t play that way tonight. Had a tough time breaking down the 9 Dominica defenders at times. I’m happy that the new players enjoy putting on the red jersey. I’m happy that we have Atiba to bring along the youngsters and that we’ll be able to benefit from his leadership through the Gold Cup.I’m not so sure about Heardman though. Not a fan of the way speaks to media. I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. As long as the players want to play for him, I guess that’s what matters most.
  11. This move is tough to understand. If they really thought that Herdman was their guy could he not have been brought in after the Floro departure? Surely they must have known there was a possibility that Herdman would get job offers elsewhere months ago. Zambrano was getting good results and bringing in promising young talent. This makes no sense even by CSA standards.
  12. If we look at the first round results in the 7 matches between the 8 remaining teams, 5 were draws, a 1 nil win (Costa Rica over Honduras) and the 3-1 win by Mexico over El Salvador. It shows what a tight tournament it has been and will most likely continue to be. It is a reason for optimism among us Canada fans but it also a reason to be cautious.
