    Seriously! Yesterday I was thinking about it. In the last couple days tens of thousands of tickets have been sold for final round World Cup Qualifiers for the men's team, who currently sit in a position to qualify for the World Cup. Meanwhile, the all time leading international goal scorer, who is Canadian, added to her record yesterday in a game that was a celebration of Canada's Olympic Gold Medal. I don't know what planet this is but I love it!

    Over 40,000 sold so far and getting closer to that sellout number of 56,302 but its not there yet. If you are looking for tickets and want to bring the noise check out a Vs membership. After group sales are all sorted out only a few thousand will remain. What a moment for the beautiful game in Canada.

    lamptern reacted to gator in Jonathan Osorio Appreciation Thread   
    It would really piss me off at TFC matches hearing all of the grumblings about Osorio, not that he didn't make mistakes but he became the latest Canadian to hate on from all of these soccer experts who were new to the game and spent a good part of the match on their phone! We had a viewing party here in Hamilton for I believe the French Guiana match and we welcomed an out of town guy in TFC gear to our table, he was into about his 3rd season watching the sport, first bad pass and he was into the "Oso sucks" which I had heard all too often at BMO, I had some rather stern words with him about supporting all of our Canadian players including one who is a target of TFC fans!

    Does anyone else enjoy updating ticketmaster periodically to see how quickly the tickets are selling? Or is that just me?

    lamptern reacted to gator in Scott Arfield   
    The January window is going to present a different selection dynamic with so many of our players out of season, I have called for Arfield from the start of qualifying and if he is still getting some club minutes my opinion hasn't changed one bit! He may be a better option than out of season midfielders and in fact I am not sure he's not a better option than in season midfielders we have called and this is no disrespect to those players!

    Fair enough. As I've said, I'm more interested in a World Cup every 4 years and strong continental competitions in between (ideally, I'd prefer the combined Copa again, but that's a separate discussion)

    True story: I lost my long-serving original Vs scarf in the craziness after Larin's goal in the Vancouver WCQ vs Honduras. Only to have Milan Borjan throw one straight to me at the end of the same match, one I take much better care of.

    lamptern reacted to CanadaFan123 in The Importance of Alphonso Davies   
    I think Herdman just made a smart call for the El Salvador game. We didn’t need Davies and wanted to do what was best for him and us long term. That good faith made it possible for us to start him 3 games without question in October IMO. 
     
    The next windows shouldn’t be issues either. 2 games next month and then January Germany is on break. The last window might be do or die so there can’t be any reasonable club demands of Davies.
