  1. Wow, speed kills. After interception in the left middle, Davies runs aroud the entire defence and splats it in from the right goal area to snuff out a Frankfurt comeback.! 61" 4-2 BM
  2. Wow, Davides bossed that advanced stray and beautiful pass to lew for the 2nd! Everytime the Argentine commentarios mention Davides, it is always "Davies, El Canadiense", like it was a friggin' miracle that he came from our blessed country.
  3. Great sarcasm: "Yeah, Canada kept their kit in the washroom, top nation!"
  4. His postioning has improved exponentially, not stuck to the sidelines now.
  5. Nobody from BC caost would move back to my Edmonton voluntarily. Maybe Victoria or Kelowna.
  6. Sending Fonzie to RM, would be like sending a Nobel Prize in Medicine winner to work for Trump- a complete waste and a danger. He is riding high now, no reason to risk anything unnecessarily. 15 second, Lewandowski and others getting great service from both sides, wasted effort. Edit Great cross by Peresic to lewandofski, goal Bayern, near 17 minutes. A few minutes earlier Fonzie had a great trun into the penalty area, but taken down in a clear uncalled fault.
  7. "What are you talking about? Of course it would be because Real Madrid is one of the biggest clubs in the world with one of the most iconic coaches in the world"
  8. Nothing "needs" to be done. There is always flexibility, and it is now the turn of national team play to be flexible (I cannot believe I just said that....next thing I am going to start peeing sitting down!). Also, I think, in terms of the neutral-site (aka Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and Bradenton) vs. home-and-aways, we have to remember (as people here are not considering the disparity here) that many places in the Carribean and Central America are several months away from even approaching their virus peaks.
  9. 86" great tracking back and bossy move in own goal area to run out the ball by Davies. Finishes 2-0. Lewandoski misses a lot, and Bayern needs more stability in the mid-feild if it wants to continue its possession game. Davies largely solid both ways.
  10. With the 5 substitutes, Bayern should take Davies off given his yellow card. Think they have only subbed 2
  11. Still 1-0 at 77 " . Back and forth, Bayern cannot put this to bed, despite mega-potential-assists by Davies, who has really been playing more forward (when not tracking back). As I said , interesting... Edit 80" Finally Lewandowski puts it away (after missing goals after many many great crosses from Daives) after a great cross by Kimmich. That should be it for Bayern.
  12. undeserved yellow card for Alonzo at 36", the Union palyer tripped over him from behind.
  13. Great cross at 21" by Alonzo to Lewandowski that L should have scored. Argentinean commentators full of praise for "El Canadiense", referring to how he contributes to "harmony". Never thought, in my long life, I would ever be cheering for Bayern Munich! Disallowed Bayern goal and good attacks by Union adding to tension and interest of the match.
  14. Stubhub (which seems to have the foreign sales) prices are outrageously high: 110 to 650 US dollars for a ticket to a double match: https://intl.stubhub.com/mens-olympic-qualifying-concacaf-2-day-pass-tickets/ev1304769?afl=1Q606O8YRW&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=104517345&utm_source=sh-com Ticketmaster Mexico is selling the same ticket for only 5% of the cost: https://www.ticketmaster.com.mx/preolimpico-concacaf-2020-usa-crc-1700hrs-mex-dom-1930hrs-guadalajara-20-03-2020/event/1400576BA563589A Better yet, wait until you get there, and buy at the walk-up, where it will be a lot cheaper. There will not be sell-outs, except maybe for the Mexico matches (tho I doubt it- these types of youth events are just not popular in latinamerica ). Nowhere near even the Ticketmaster Mexico prices, in my experience, from my long experience in going to tournaments from throughout Mexico, Africa and Asia. I know that may make you nervous, but hold your nerves. Also, if the games are suspended or spectators are banned, you will not be holding useless tickets. Mexican pesos are 21.2 to 1 US dollar. In traveling to Latin America, as with most of the world, it is always better to buy US dollars in Canada, and then exchange them for pesos in Mexico, even with the "double exchange". The Canadian dollar and most other currencies have a huge buy/sell spread, and greenbacks are king in places like Latin America
  15. Good on you! 👍 If anyone else is going or considering going, some gratuitous advice- Fly DIRECT TO Mexico, and NOT through the USA. Apart from the usual pain in the u-no-wat of US aeroports, the stringent virus-testing aspects, especially coming from Mexico, could be very problematic, especially for a non-American. The Mexican low-cost airline Interjet (well-run, I have used them a lot) flys direct to Mexico City from Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal, with cheap connections to Guadalajara, especially with the great offers due to continuing emptying seats : https://www.interjet.com/en-us (see recent deal for new Vancouver: route: https://vo.mydplr.com/18c2b4669472e2b34560d527958d6c09-87618d6a33b151e5473194cf6f2a1786 ) In addition, there are lots of Canadian charter flights (ie Westjet, Sunwing) to resorts like Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo (both only 4 to 5 hours to Guadalajara by comfortable buses, as well as cheap air connections), which now have have great deals for late March-early April, and probably there will be lots of last-minute seats opening up as families get cold-feet. Most package deals have options for flight-only. Wish I could be braver, but travel to and from Argentina has exponentially greater complications.
