  1. Rumors are saying that the US (unfortunately) be in line for the 2014 WC, should Brazil faulter.
  2. Thier is already doubts about 2014 and whether Brazil could actually be fit to host it. The 2007 Pan American Games have been dubbed somewhat of a mini-test.
  3. Keyvan Heydari is ok I guess. I didnt know that Gol TV always dubs over the spanish commentary. But these Spanish commentators you could hear in the background sound like from the Mexican giant television network, Televisa. Lastly, if you go to the www.goldcup.org site, and go to calender, at the bottom, it lists all the television partners. Intersting indeed.
  4. Other potential cities that I have heard as expansion sites: Pheonix Arizona St. Louis Missouri I think either of these would be a good fit for MLS. Pheonix has the potential to be big because of the potential Latino fan base in the Arizona area. The has good crowds a few years ago for Interliga and as well the US/Mexico game at the new dome stadium in Glendale Arizona in February of 2007 sold out.
  5. What is everyone's opinion of the 2007 CONCACAF coverage on Gol TV Canada and Rogers Sportsnet. I have found Gol TV's coverage to be ok, but the host announcers are really cheesy and thus make Lee Godfrey and Paul James look brilliant in their half-time and post game analysis. As for Rogers Sportsnet, I can't really give an opinion as of yet, as I have only really seen Gol TV's coverage less Canada's first game against Costa Rica when Rogers had to use those same lame generic public access host broadcast announcers. Lastly with Gol TV's coverage, I have noticed that it keeps cut
  6. Yes. Go away Blue Jays. It's as if they do not get enough coverage already!
  7. Canada 2-Haiti 2 Canada goes through to QF after Guadelope and Costa Rica tie 1-1.
  8. I had a bad feeling about that Guadelope game. Now hopefully Canada can actually win on Monday. i am not feeling good about this after tonight.
  9. I dont think I have ever read any thing good about our boys at the Gold Cup in a long time. Good promise indeed.
  10. Yea. Mexico is on top. Good news. I was getting scared their for a second that they might not qualify for the QF in Houston. That would have been bad news for me because I am planning to go their. An empty Reliant Stadium would have been bad news for me.
  11. You're right. These commentators are getting funny now. Must have had to much to drink. Either that or these announcers came from Public Access T.V.
  12. Tied 1-1. In half time now. What is with the Spanish commentators in the background of the english commentators announcing the Game?? The spanish announcers sound like the ones from Televisa from Mexico.
  13. I have to agree with you here. The 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup final, which our boys where in, hardly drew flies at LA Coliesum. Jack (I am a knob) Warner and the CONCACAF boys will do anything in their power to prevent a repeat of 2000 again. That is the said part
  14. 1-1 draw. I dont know about this game. This could be the banana skin game. While Canada looked impressive against Costa Rica (The game they needed a point at least from and came away with a win), I got this feeling they somehow might not go full throttle tommorow, thus potentially making this a wide open group again. I am hoping not. A win for Canada, and most likely a QF appearence is in the cards. A loss and it could be scramble time, with Haiti afterwards.
  15. Yea. the Haiti-Guadeloupe game has been bad. What is worse is the announcers that are calling the game. Man I wish Craig Forrest and Nigel Reed were doing the game.
  16. A game Canada has to come with a draw. However a sneaking feeling tells me otherwise unfortunately. Costa Rica 1- Canada 0 Costa Rica's goal will come off a controversial penalty kick given to them in the 87th minute. Those darn CONCACAF referees.
  17. I would love to go, but I have a family outing in the afternoon outside of town. If I get back in time, I might be able to make it.
  18. Yea, I am disapointed that they are showing the TFC game before the Canada game. I think it should be the other way, considering that the Gold Cup is the regional championship for North, Central America and the Caribbean.
  19. Yes I believe you are correct Sigma. That was a 2002 WCQ game in Mexico City in August 2000.
  20. Cool. I am going to be able to watch this game Friday. Go Canada.
  21. By the way, soccertv.com has just changed the Canada games from being shown on CBC to Sportsnet correctly.
  22. Yes I agree with you Cheeta. Much better then Gol TV news and Canada's GOL TV's Extra time. Bobby McMahohn, Jeremy St. Louis, Mitch Peacock and Carlos Machado are definately better then the crew of Gol TV news and Extra time (Lee Godfrey and Paul James).
  23. It depends. I think they have a better shot this time then they did in 2005. It depends on how they play their first game. Canada must get at least a draw in game for for any chance. If they do, their chances of making it past the first round increase by I say 20%-40%
