    Oh shit that was Ochoa? Nice.
    Speaking of the gold cup: no Vela, Chicharito, or Lozano apparently.

    I don't think the scoreline was an accurate reflection of the match. Pacific had their moments. Forge converted their chances. The stats confirm that. xG was only 1.5 - 1.0 in favour of Forge. Pacific out shot them 12-8.
    I hope Pacific can remain competitive with their youthful lineup. If results do not go their way, it may discourage other teams from taking a similar approach.
    Lastly...away teams having only 5 guys on the bench is really starting to piss me off!!! If 1 of the players gets injured in training (Haber) and 1 is your backup keeper, you only have 3 players for your 3 substitutes. That totally handcuffs the coach and puts the away team at such a disadvantage. Come on CPL! How much more does it cost to travel with 2 extra guys?!?

    And an undisclosed fine. My only question is why did it take so long. He should of been suspended before his last match.

    What game were you watching mate? Pacific had the bulk of possession and created far more chances. Valour were lucky to walk away with 3 points.
    And just to clarify, you'd prefer that an incorrect call that resulted in the first ever goal against and the first ever loss for Pacific FC not be commented on by fans; you'd prefer that a call that was completely missed by the broadcast crew, and resulted in the first ever goal for, and the first ever win for Valour FC not be mentioned; and you believe that talk of refereeing decisions is somehow unique to the old MLS?

    Schaad calls play by play and does colour at the same time, he flows, talks a lot, has a pleasant voice and is knowledgeable. But he eats into the colour commentary, and left Rustad with little place or space.
    So she was forced to quip and take short shots at things. I found her anecdotal, and I also think that certain comments are merely truisms: the last thing I want to hear is a commentator trying to tell players and coaches how to play the game. So the corner kick business, fair enough, but there are a thousand ways to take corners. What I did like is that she caught Chung and the other outside back at Pacific playing very high up from the first minutes, which is how many teams play now, but correct to point out. Also that HFX had little control through the centre of the park and was always putting their strikers in a hard spot (Skublak). 
    If Schaad is taught to breathe and wait, then Rustad could come in and comment more, and not have to force her comments into such a short window in that all or nothing way.
    Edit: the possible reason for the high corners on that end was the sun the keeper's eyes--everything has a logic.  All you need is a coach to comment this and then a player interprets it. If HFX had attacked Village high into the box he might have had problems in the 2nd half.

    David's Gent play in the Belgian Cup final tomorrow, and winning the cup will be very important to them. They are currently in last place in the league championship playoffs, which means that their hopes of Europa League qualification via the league route is nearly zero. However, if they win tomorrow's cup final, they will earn a berth in the Europa League group stage. Playing Europa League would be great for David's development (assuming that he stays with Gent for next season), so a win tomorrow would be great for him.

    It's amazing that we can have completely opposite interpretations of the same information. I've been impressed with the pace of work, and see countless workers and equipment on-site, 12 hours a day. Ever the optimist, I suppose. I also think it's pretty cool that there's a live feed of the progress

    I'm not sure if this was posted on here (I think it was), but the stadium had a mysterious weeks long delay while being shipped from Italy. It left Italy on time, but apparently there was a backlog at the Panama Canal or something like that. These are events outside of PFC's control.  I suppose there are those here among us that expect an hour-by-hour status update on these type of things, but I think things are moving along remarkably quickly in the circumstances.
