  1. It's fair to question whether Brym should be the player that came into the last few games in those dying moments of the game. I, like probably most on here, would've preferred to have seen Millar back out there. But we should also keep in mind what that role is, as basically the last forward coming in off the bench. I really don't think Brym sees the field in a scenario where we desperately need to score a goal. In that case I bet the lineup gets shuffled a bit and a more experienced player comes in. So when he's coming in, at that point his primary role is more or less to run his ass off and work for the team. Any added offensive production is a bonus. To a more casual observer it's a thankless role that will rarely get you many plaudits. But it's one that's certainly going to be noticed by all your teammates and coaches. It's also a role that not every player (particularly veterans) even wants to fill. So in my opinion it's a more nuanced conversation than simply saying "Why is he playing? Other players are better than him!"
  2. Fuck that. The performance in the Azteca that night, even more so than the score, set down a marker for the boys and put all of CONCACAF on notice! As you said, this really was so much more than just a point. They stood toe to toe and then punched the bully in the nose.
  3. FYI: The official explanation is that not all Concacaf stadiums are equipped to have an adequate VAR setup.
  4. That second PK shout was borderline, if taken on its own. Though when seen in context with the rest of the reffing tonight...
  5. Relax boys. It’s a long game. They’re gonna have some real heavy legs by the time that second half gets going.
  6. No one is trying to change your opinion. We would however prefer that you not continue being a dick.
  7. Doneil!!! Omg. What a chance. Overall, things look good so far. Unless we just totally mess up at the back, (or dead ball play) I’m not sure how much this Jamaica team will threaten our goal in open play.
  8. Watching the Mexican tv telecast and they’re impressed. They‘ve “never seen Canada press so high up the field in the Azteca before!” It’s so beautiful.
  9. I was on the opposite to the AO. They seemed to be louder early in the game and definitely tailed off as the game progressed. The area I was in had a lot of families of which the majority were more or less sitting on their hands. There was a couple of pockets of Frat-boy types who were poorly (And I mean really poorly) trying to heckle the Canadian players and the guys in the bench who were warming up right in front of us. Real gems like “Davies, you must work out at Planet fitness!” and “number 2, who are you, I’ve never even heard of you” After that last one, I turned around, cursed the guy out and let him know we were actually in Alistair Johnston’s home stadium. That quieted him down temporarily. A few others around me jumped in with “which number was that?” “Does he really play here?” LoL Most of the banter was good natured, and my biggest complaint was just how incredibly lame the majority of their comments were. One of the hecklers brought me back a beer after halftime, so it all worked out just fine! I probably stood most of the game, though most of the people around me sat. I would’ve stood more, but I had an 8 yr old kid in the seat behind me and every once in a while I would feel a bit guilty that I was blocking his view and I would try sitting down for a couple of minutes. So yeah, to your point @Unnamed Trialist it’s safe to say that an awful lot of the people at the Nashville game should probably be considered casual fans at best.
  10. I came home from Nashville to find YouTubeTV didn't record the game for me, and the replay FS1 showed last night was the edited version they show in re-airings! Anyone know where I might be able to D/L a full copy of the game? Torrent of the match even? Are torrents still a thing?
  11. After seeing that part of Pulisic's press conference, I'm definitely surprised that he'd be throwing subtle shade at his coach like that. And that's probably just a hint of what's really going on in that locker room right now. Pretty stark difference to the kind of things you usually hear our guys say in a postgame interview.
