    Real classy finish on a header for David! Great cross by Yilmaz. His last two goals for club and country are headers! Not a huge part of his game to date as far as I can recall...

    Imagine if we didn’t make it to the Octo?  Instead the Mexico game is a little over 2 weeks away and we will have something to discuss soon.

    Nice to see him actually hustle and out work defenders, didn't see that at the Olympic sample.

    I swear anytime I saw someone in brand new Umbro gear at the games there was a knowing look shared 😂

    grigorio reacted to SoccMan in WCQ Ratings   
    Yup the sad sad part are hearing stories of people who played soccer all their life growing up and having no clue about the Canadian men’s national team. If these people can’t get engaged about the men’s soccer team how can we expect to get sports fans that never played the game have no connection to the game to get into the team. I think soccer will always suffer here in Canada with the fact that unlike the other sports that are popular here, the big leagues for soccer are not here, the big leagues are in Europe and I think this plays a part in following domestic soccer and even the national team, that mentality that they are watching second rate soccer in their minds . It’s a mentality that permeates through a big portion of sports fans here in Canada and North America in general .

    Yeah, we're all in the same boat with regards to line of thinking, it's a good move in a decent league that has been known to export talent successfully in recent years but you kinda just feel he could have skipped this particular step.

    Just look what he did to Americans when we beat them. He was the best player out there. If he is in the same form, he’s an upgraded Osorio.

    Like him or not, at the time being he is one of our most talented box to box midfielders.    I am not going to be distraught if he doesn’t come next window as we have solid talent and depth, I will be happier if he is part of the squad.

    Ryan Reynolds owns a soccer team and one of the best marketing companies in the world, and reps canada hard.  Would be a dream match-up if the CSA could send out some feelers

    He also designed the U-Sector logo and several of their scarves, plus the first Red Patch Boys scarf. He was a giant in Canadian soccer fandom.

    Just some next morning thoughts. Although having the crowd be 50/50 was tough, I will say in a way I almost preferred having it be 100% engaged fans as opposed to that other 50% being casuals with no passion for the game. That El Salvador anthem was very cool to see and I think made the rest of us sing louder for the Canadian anthem. I do think a lot of these same fans will turn up in red next time because they are football fans first (ie the guy in front of me with the El Salvador jersey and the tattoo sleeve with a giant maple leaf in the middle). 
    That being said, I do think there's a role that the V's and other fans need to play to try and be more engaging and less niche to try and attract the average Canadian to the games. I'm not sure what that would look like, but sometimes it feels like people on here can be gatekeepers rather than welcoming to the bandwagoners, which are the people we need to pack our stadiums.
     
    Edit: one additional point I noticed attending both home matches: these boys ride for one another. Any hard foul, not only do the players on the field back their boy, but the bench is immediately on the sideline. May be a small detail, but I absolutely love to see it. Surprisingly, for his minimal contribution, Wotherspoon seems to be one of the first to the sideline every time.

    Or we just need to stop selling tickets to people with a US address as I am pretty sure that is where most, if not all the Honduran fans were from (wasn’t at the game last night but signs are pointing to many ES fans being from out of country as well).

    Yup. A draw keeps USA and Honduras back at 3 points, and keeps an ineffectual Berhalter in his job. Shut 'er down.

    I love watching Tajon’s skills but he needs to mature a bit and occasionally play the simpler ball and learn to make his teammates look good. 
     
    Not much to complain about, though. Great start.

    I think we should go for it against Mexico.  They are the class of the region, but I think there are points there for the taking.  Sure, we'll be in Mexico but how different will it be from the Gold Cup game (other than the Azteca altitude)?
    I think we can get something from them.  First game of a window, might as well go for it.  Not all out attacking, but a smart game with the first stringers could nip a point or three.

    On the plus side, it's nice to finally have a player who has everyone hanging off his every word. This is what it's like for players across Europe, South America and Mexico. We're finally becoming manically obsessive! Yes!
