    SirBobsaget got a reaction from apbsmith in Alistair Johnston   
    Listening to his interview, such a thoughtful player. What frustrates me is how TFC and Canada Youth overlooked him. If he was developed through strong academy and national youth he would be further along. Another problem is TFC youth development has been hilariously garbage  as GTA born Canada players have come through sources other than TFC.

    This expanded format will result in the cream rising to the top. I just really can’t see a scenario where the US, with all this talent, can’t outpace squads like Panama, Honduras and Costa Rica. I know we all hope they collapse but I just don’t see it

    Damn didn't realize the TSN website feed was behind. Read about the goal before it actually happened on my stream. I'm OK with that!

    Crazy how in 2019 we had for RB Godinho / Brault-Guillard, since then Johnston and Laryea have materialized to establish 2 solid RB options. Looking back on this thread I see that Johnston made his MLS debut just over a year ago, and this thread was only created when drafted in Jan 2020.
    Funny how we track all these players for years as they hop around every type and level of league only to have the 'RB Solution' pop up out of seemingly nowhere.

    Just belatedly piling on - this guys is a beast.  
    Two years ago I hadn’t heard of him.  One year ago I knew he existed but didn’t know anything about him. This year I think he is going to be an anchor for us on the right defensive side for the next decade.

    SirBobsaget reacted to Kent in Herdman new head coach   
    I was disappointed he didn't get Kaye or Osorio (or maybe even Piette) on there in place of Buchanan or Laryea. But I was surprised to see after the game that we had 66% possession, so now I'm less sure I understand what the problem exactly was last night.
    I'm feeling pretty down about the result. But I also always new that this should be a wide open competition. I figured you had USA and Mexico at the top, then basically a tie for 3rd best between 5 teams, then El Salvador firmly at the bottom. That was before the Gold Cup. Since then it's seemed more like a 6-way tie for 3rd, and the standings after matchday 1 reflect that. 1 game won/lost, and the other 3 all tied. Yes it hurts a lot because we were at home, but I still hate these hair trigger reactions each time there is a game that doesn't go great.

    Let's see what happens in the next couple of games, Herdman has to take a fair bit of the blame tonight on several fronts, as others have said he was naive! We needed another midfielder in the mix, not 3 wingbacks at once and my goodness, Kennedy hast to start over Miller, I don't think his game management was good tonight, he and the whole team need to do better or we could be on the outside looking in very quickly!

    First game at home in front of fans in two years, Herdman wanted to throw red meat to the new (and old) fans to get them salivating. Throwing all our big guns on and annihilating Honduras would have been an amazing PR move and grabbed more attention. He shoveled too much coal into the hype train and it backfired. Question: Would he have picked that flashy lineup if Sportsnet didn't pick up the rights yesterday? I'm not sure. He learned his lesson, though. Songwriting over epic guitar soloing.

    He's pretty knowledgeable overall, but yes we seem to have earned his respect after the Suriname game. He did a lot of analysis in the lead up to it, particularly on the Surinamese side. Because he’s based in Netherlands/Belgium, he had the connections and the incentive to provide coverage on them, and became quite acquainted with us by extension.

    Yes.  Thank you. And more impotantly,  while we are at it.  I wish people would stop with the surprise or shock that some of these totally unknown/unseen players (from the lower division) who’ve proven nothing,  are not called.

    I think people are overreacting (I know it’s hard to believe on a forum) but without One Soccer, we would have been back to the old days of searching all over for a dodgy stream. And I still don’t think TSN bought exclusive rights to the away game if One Soccer already owned those rights.  For people attending games during qualifying, you will be paying at least $34 a ticket, paying $12 for a beer but yet, $9.95 a month is an issue?
