    I love you guys (and gals)!  There is no real reason to be optimistic, but us beautiful bastards STILL hold hope that our lads can pull something off. Yeah, maybe we are insane-as-****, but I love all of you just the same.
    COME ON YOU REDS! Let's give these Mexicans a run for their ****** pesos!
    Vive le Canada!

    Watching the Honduras El Salvador game.  Couldn't figure which team was which until i seen GREEN LASER POINTERS on the faces of players in blue jerseys. I'm guessing that's El Salvador.

    First time posting since the game on Friday.  Haven't been able to watch the highlights or read any articles for the game today - too disheartened.  I can only wonder how the players are really feeling after that predictable yet unfortunate display.  
    I had a bad feeling after I saw that starting lineup.  Like his midfield at the Gold Cup, I was baffled by 3 of Floro's 11 (not that it would have made much of a difference).  Those early chances we squandered... so close yet so very far away.
    Oh well, thats all in the past.  Its time game day.  No matter what the situation or odds, as a Canada game nears, an inexplicable belief in this team manifests itself within me. 
    The pressure is totally off us.  Lets see what we can do.    
    Same starters as last game I suppose.  Same tactics.  Perhaps we can actually pop one in and twist the plot.

    Yeah, I would see a 1 - 0 loss as a victory, at least from a goal differential perspective.

    I know everyone is disappointed, even pissed off, but our expectations--once again--were way out of whack. We are improving, but we still have a long ways to go before we can come close to beating a team like Mexico. I am not convinced that a different back four would have made much of a difference. We were outclassed and made too many mistakes and did not even test their keeper with the two or three solid chances we had. Buck up! Our team needs us strong and enthusiastic right to the end. It was ALWAYS going to be about the last two games. I love us Voyageurs, but sometimes we are so damned stupid about our expectations. (Hell, we barely beat a ****** Honduras team)

    I wish it was true, that we have many players playing at high levels, but it simply isn't true. Not compared to Mexico, at least. I am disappointed in the performance, yes, but to think we could have fielded a better team is naive. We still would have lost. Our best guys had poor games. We don't have any better players. Not yet at least. Until we have 18 players of Hutch's caliber, we cannot reasonably expect to compete with teams like Mexico

    I know some will disagree, but tactically we were too spread out, and therefore far too easy to expose. We lost our compact shape. Hard to tell, but I think it was Floro's plan to press Mexico high, but our guys gassed themselves after 20 minutes. From there, the wheels came off. We do not have the depth, yet. We are still a decade away. Still, we should be good enough, if we play tactically wise soccer, to make the Hex.  That should be our realistic goal
