  1. Carducci has to be amongst the best keepers after that performance.
  2. Hoping the Cruz Azul move comes to fruition. If he can prove he can score there he'll be primed for that solid European move that some are hoping for.
  3. I wonder if any of the T&T Halifax lads are going to get selected for GC preliminary roster. Garcia in particular has been impressive.
  4. I had thought that it was because engagement hasn't quite picked back up yet to previous levels. At least it seems that way to me. Felt like it took a few days to get busy again after the switch, and now we are like 80 percent, but we'll get back up there. Again, no stats to back that up, that's just how it feels to me.
  5. T&T are a decent opponent. Good chance for us to work out some kinks and perhaps make a statement of intent ahead of the tourney
  6. Puebla reportedly have offers on the table for Cavallini from Cruz Azul, MLS and Spanish clubs. https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.record.com.mx/futbol-futbol-nacional-liga-mx-cruz-azul-puebla/cruz-azul-hizo-oferta-a-puebla-por-lucas-cavallini&ved=0ahUKEwid-sibuaPiAhWqv1QKHfhYBfkQqQIIHCgBMAA&usg=AOvVaw2tzbcMevGIwLEiiOXn7P_m
  7. Last night was painful to watch. TFC need more direct players. Everyone wants to pass and move and wait until the perfect moment opens up. I agree with Vanney's assessment, hesitation is taking hold when you wait for the right moment to shoot. Sometimes, you just need a player willing to try something audacious. Pozuelo is Mr. Audacious, but he's primarily a set up guy. His talent is being wasted out there without having someone who can put the ball into the back of the net. Perhaps TFC needs another striker who can play with Jozy? Someone good enough that he can be the number 1 guy on a night Jozy isn't healthy. But someone also different than Jozy, perhaps someone more in the mold of Juan Agudelo. I know, not the most inspiring name, but you gotta be realistic. You're not going to bring in another DP level player right now. Why keep pissing away time in Argentina to no avail? This is a guy who knows the league and scores in the league and can play out wide if need be. Anyways, if it's as frustrating for the players as it is for the fans, I really feel bad for these guys.
  8. Did we just decide one day he should be a RB because he is right footed? I feel like this may have happened lol
  9. For someone projected to be in the mix as a RB, he sure does feature on the left a lot.
  10. Hector Hererra is a big loss for them, perhaps bigger than Chicharito. Hererra has captained Porto since the 2015-16 season. He's a lead by example player who drives Mexico forward in the middle. He killed us in Vancouver. Guadardo and whoever joins him in the midfield (probably Jonathan Dos Santos, and someone like Dueanas) are good but beatable. The way Kaye is playing right now, with Arfield doing brilliant with Rangers, and Hutchinson still starting for Besiktas, i'd call it even at minimum, at least based on talent (experience playing together perhaps lacking, comparatively). Midfield is where games are won and lost, but both teams should match up competitively. As always, conventional wisdom would suggest our defense may be in trouble against Mexico, but Henry is having a good year, so that is at least something. It wouldn't be all that surprising if he made life difficult for Jimenez. That will be a major battle and may determine the outcome in the end. For as good a season as Jimenez had in the English Premier League, it remains to be seen if he can be the main man for Mexico. No Chicharito, or Lozano, or Herrera, or Vela, or Corona means someone has to step up, and he'll be expected to be "the guy". And finally, David and Cavallini and Davies and Hoilett are going to present challenges to Mexico's defense. We'll get a few chances but they must not be wasted (like Hoilett in Vancouver). It will be a measuring stick to see how good we really are going forward. Can't wait for this game!
  11. Yes it would, which was my point. My point was that it shouldn't be that way. The group winners and runner-ups should be crossing over to the other side of the bracket, but they never set the GC up this way.
