  1. When the CanadaRED pre-sale started yesterday, were the highest row numbers in 205-209 on sale? There's nothing available right now above row 27 in 205-209, but maybe rows 28-35 have sold already. I don't think I've ever seen the east side field level seats available for CanMNT matches. I've seen them on sale for Toronto FC but never for CanMNT. If there is an increased capacity allowance, I wonder if they make a few of those available. I don't know how many people would buy them, but you might get a few corporate people and you could make 3-4 times the price of a regular ticket.
  2. It's exciting to see how quickly tickets have sold for this match. For the Honduras and El Salvador matches, it took a long time to sell the full 100 level on the east side. Yesterday, apart from a few scattered singles, only the back row of the 100 level was left on the east side and it was only the pre-sale. Amazing.
  3. How many ranking points would we net for these October result combinations: - Loss to Mexico, draw against Jamaica, win against Panama - Loss to Mexico, win against Jamaica, win against Panama I'm excited to see us at 1416. With Costa Rica on a bit of a decline, it feels like it's almost inevitable that at some point during the Octagonal, we'll overtake them. A win over them at home in November could make the ranking update at the end of November very interesting!
  4. El Salvador is the only goalless team after the first window. They were my pre-Octagonal pick to finish 8th. Even though they're not 8th right now, I will be surprised if they don't finish last. We could use their help though in this window. It would be nice if they could start October by taking some points off Panama at home. Given what we saw from them at BMO Field to end the first window, it's hard to believe they had an automatic spot in the final round before the format changed.
  5. I think the primary focus needs to be on the Jamaica and Panama matches. I'd be very satisfied with a draw in Jamaica and a win at home against Panama. I think 4 points is a successful window. 6 points would be fantastic. If we have a chance at a result in Mexico late in the match, then go for it, but I don't want us to start guns blazing and sacrifice anyone's fitness for the 2 matches with better points-earning potential that come after. It feels like Panama has punched above their weight in the first window (compared to where the FIFA rankings would have them). The US plays away in Panama on October 10th. They could do us a favour with another away result like they got in Honduras.
  6. Excellent on being 4th ranked in CONCACAF now, knocking on the door to 3rd. It's nice to see us firmly in contention to be a seeded team in the next Gold Cup draw. FIFA updates the rankings on their website next week.
  7. I felt the exact same way. When it was 1-0 Honduras, I was loving the thought of the US on 2 points after 3 matches. Then I shifted to thinking the draw was best since it would have prevented Honduras from reaching 5 points. By the end, I was thrilled with Honduras staying at 2 points and having a -3 goal differential.
  8. I'm very happy with our 5 points, but if we had defeated Honduras, would we not be leading right now since our GD would have been better than Mexico's +2? I'm excited for the October window. A result in Jamaica of some kind and a home win against Panama would be fantastic.
  9. Silver lining to the 4-1 US result: It keeps Honduras at 2 points and puts them in a hole on goal differential as well.
  10. I think a draw between Honduras and the US would be perfect as well. As much as I would love to see the US at 2 points, I don't want to see Honduras at 5 points. Honduras at 5 points would be a fantastic start for them (a perfect home record and 2 away results out of 2), so let's have them drop a few points at home as well.
  11. Costa Rica and Jamaica finish 1-1. So far tonight, we're the only ones to pick up 3 points! 😀
  12. With our match finishing before any of the others, a win would put us temporarily in 2nd. 😀
  13. Any news on whether El Salvador received permission for all their fully vaccinated players to play? There was a report yesterday that only 14 players were cleared to play since the others had been vaccinated with a vaccine Canada hasn't approved, and that El Salvador was seeking permission from CONCACAF for the rest. I'm curious to know how all of that played out.
  14. Let's hope Jamaica sacrifice the middle again when we play them next month. In the first half on Sunday, Panama could pass the ball around at will without any pressure put on them whatsoever. I'm also hoping for an empty stadium again. No one is expecting anything from the away match in Mexico, but after Jamaica's performance on Sunday, I think an away point (at least) is not out of the question. Combine that with a home win against Panama, and it would be nice to add 4 points (or possibly 6) to whatever our total is from this month.
  15. That was my first thought as well. The Our World in Data website says El Salvador is vaccinating with Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Sinovac, so they must have received the Chinese vaccine.
  16. @Approve My Account Pls I wondered the exact same thing.

  17. I think Honduras is in a great spot as well. 2 away draws is a fantastic start. I'm torn on what to cheer for in their match with the US on Wednesday. As much as I would love to see the US with only 2 points after their first 3 matches, I'm not sure I want to see Honduras at 5 points (with a perfect home record and 2 away results out of 2). Maybe a draw is best so they're both at 3 points. Edson Alvarez picked up a 2nd yellow late in the 2nd half last night. How convenient. He misses Mexico's match on Wednesday against Panama, but then he's available again for the first match of the next window, which is against us.
  18. As much as I don't like Honduras, they look to be in a very good position with 2 away draws to start. San Pedro Sula is always a difficult place to get away results, so I think they'll be very pleased with where they are right now. They're going to get a gift on the 2nd last matchday, getting to play Mexico who will have already qualified, so Mexico will roll over for them (as they've done in the past, see the 2018 WCQ cycle) and Honduras will most likely pick up points against a team not many other countries will take points off of. We'll have to see what happens with Jamaica and whether they can turn things around, but if things go south for them, Honduras gets them on the last matchday, so Honduras could have a couple of good opportunities for points in the final few matchdays.
  19. Panama face Mexico on Wednesday, so if Mexico can take care of business away, that will keep Panama at 4 points. Wednesday will be difficult for the US, away in Honduras. Imagine if the US only had 2 or 3 points after the first 3 matches.
  20. Fantastic! So thrilled we got a result away. 5 points this window is now in play! 🙌 😀
  21. @xabuep2You must be feeling great! 😀 Panama could be on the verge of an away win early in the final round!
  22. Panama has been in complete control for the first 20 minutes. Jamaica sure hasn't had a lot of possession. Let's hope the stadium remains empty for when we visit next month.
