    The Ref reacted to TGAA_Star in Herdman new head coach   
    If Herdman qualifies us for Qatar and Canada we manage to actually qualify for the first time since 86 then Herdman will for sure keep his job. If we don't get there and or let's say we underperform again in the 2021 Gold Cup,  he will for sure get fired

    WTF is with this obsession with the genitalia of the coach?  Why does no one want the best coach for the job?  Did the female referees make the WWC better or worse?  Me, I want the best coach for my son, my daughter, my National team.  Maybe I have a desire for a female coach for my daughter because she could use the role model, but for the national team I just want the best.  The women deserve the best.

    No. 99.9% she is not. She has always been more into broadcasting and public relations. She has a very good on-camera presence and has been great in her roles with FIFA/CONCACAF.
    and now she has a newborn too.

    I promise I wasn't trying to get you to fork over money to read that half-baked column. I forgot about the paywall.
    He writes that the national women’s soccer team shouldn’t be so difficult to see on TV.
    Summing it up:
    "There’s a lot of mystery surrounding the issue of women’s soccer here. A lot of Canadians, men and women, would love to wear a Sinclair shirt, but try purchasing one. They don’t seem to exist. It’s the murky broadcast issue that sticks, mind you. Call it sneaky moves or call it just business, but it looks like women’s sports being marginalized over and over again."

    The last time Canada beat the U.S. was at the 2001 Algarve Cup. Sinclair scored once, while Charmaine Hooper netted a brace. Karina LeBlanc was in goal and earned the clean sheet.   How do I miss you Charmaine!

    Saw the whole game through Costa Rican TV.  The Ticas gave it all they could, my hat is off to them.  Great team and great coaching.

    It wasn't just her.  The Mexican players were beating every Canadian player to the ball for most of the game.  It looked like our players weren't that interested in giving 100% on each play.  That doesn't sound good, but it paid off towards the end of the match, where we dominated possession because the Mexicans were too pooped out to compete anymore.  It will be interesting to see how much the Mexicans have left in the tank for their final game against the Americans.
    I got the impression that the Mexican plan was to go full throttle at the beginning to get an early goal, and maybe batten down the hatches after that.  Our defensive play was good enough to stymie that plan, and with our early goals, we were able to coast towards victory.

    The Ref reacted to Patrick in Realistically, who think Sinclair will break Hamm's record?   
    Look, if she doesn't break the record and if she is looking to retire I say the CSA should invite a minnow for a farewell game, maybe Taiwan, pay their way and treat them to something they don't get at home.  Then spend the game feeding Sinclair the ball.  Everyone wins and F#@! Abby Wambach.

    Did Herdman received a monetary bonus for having his team defeated the U.S.?  Many times is all about the money!

    4 minutes to decide a call is not what soccer is all about.  One already have an official and an assistant on the field who for centuries have made calls is sufficient for me.  Maybe the idiots at the Var shack were off for coffee.

    That VAR call back was disgusting. It can’t be clear and obvious if it takes four minutes and you don’t have an angle from along the line
