  1. Criss de calice de tabarnak... Ricketts: All the speed in the world, none of the touch.
  2. I can't help but agree with Craig. We have a UEFA pedigree manager with a U9 Mighty Mites level strategy for defending against set pieces. Might as well start lining them up on the goal line.
  3. I like the mix of youth and experience in your squad. Very ballsy. Very Sven-Goran Eriksson if I do say so...
  4. Never been a fan of the use of black in Canada national team jerseys for any sport, but maybe that's just me.
  5. I picked Henry. Good teams are built on solid, experienced back lines. Hopefully he continues to improve and become an anchor of our MNT for many years to come.
  6. ... is about 1000% spot-on in my estimation. Pretty much echoes the thoughts I've had about TFC since year one. http://www.sportsnet.ca/soccer/tim-sid-an-open-letter-to-tfc/
  7. Chalk and cheese. If there's a Canadian-born player who has no chance to make our national team and wants to go play for East Timor, I couldn't give a rat's backside.
  8. Oh I agree with you 100%. However most of our stadiums are multi-use (read pointy-ball), which leads to chewed-up turf. But this is just as much a reality in smaller US cities as it is in Canada, so I don't understand why American soccer players are making a fuss.
  9. I thought there was a consensus that FIFA 2 Star turf was preferable to shitty grass. Isn't that one of the reasons that Commonwealth switched over?
  10. But come on, were you ever really put in that situation? Presumably, Marco's family and friends (and possibly his club) were all encouraging him to it. That kind of pressure is hard to ignore as a youngster. I'm glad we're in a position where we can give him the chance to make amends.
  11. Us and Argentina withdrew. Interestingly, one of the very last minute replacements was Honduras, who arrived with barely enough players only a few hours before kickoff and actually made it all the way to third place, beating Brazil 2-0 in the quarterfinals and then Uruguay in a shootout in the third place game.
  12. What's Gavin McCallum up to these days?
