    shorty got a reaction from canadasoccer20 in WCQ: Third Round - Window 1 (September 2-8, 2021)   
    Although it would be shockING, sadly I wouldn’t be shockED. “Owning your sister” seems on par with “the opponent didn’t respect us and do what they were supposed to”  (attitude-wise)
    On a selfish level I am also glad to see what looks like culture implosion on the USMNT, but it also feels icky and embarrassing.

    At first I also thought draws in the other matches were best, but a Mexico that feels in control at 9pts and 4pts clear of the field is the one I would prefer to face than one who is only 2pts clear of us and hearing it from 100 million angry El Tri fans. I’d rather over-confident and comfortable than motivated, scared and salty.

    Both in Edmonton. Book every available indoor heated training facility for the entire window within 50km. Make them train on an outdoor middle school pitch in High Level. Without nets.

    Isnt he the one who was disciplined by his club team for hosting a party in contravention of COVID rules?

    Laryea and Buchanan both starting was a mistake in retrospect. Now to get Kaye or Osorio into the middle you need to take one of them off. You could just swap out Hutch but that doesn’t solve the problem of too much space free in the middle and not enough or effective linking.

    Count me in as one of those who is happy it will be SN streaming the One Soccer feed.
    I get the importance of bringing this game to "everyone across the country", but ultimately this is a giant promotion of One Soccer, a Canadian soccer channel. Think about it, that is absolutely MASSIVE. 
    I know the service has it's issues and isn't perfect, but you got to see the forest through the trees. This is OUR Canadian soccer channel and we want to expose it to as many people as possible, in any way possible.
    I don't care if you can't stand Wheelers corny style, in fact I believe the more people who become aware of Wheeler tonight, the better. He is a Canadian Soccer guy through and through. When it comes to publicity it is far better for them to remember you and hate you than to never know you exist.
    A lot of people are about to learn that Wheeler exists. The non-descript, unmemorable commentator he is not.
    I hope he wears the most flamboyant, outlandish outfit he can dig up. Canada, get ready to meet soccer's Don Chery, minus the "xenophobia" (very heavy air quotes on that).
    Anyways, up the Reds, up SN, up One Soccer, and even up Wheeler! 
    Wins all around, folks.

    Yeah Ruffian, I get it. It’s just that you’re using the bar set by a fledgling 3-year old league to judge a pro academy program that’s had a decade or more to graduate players through to the first team. Whether or not they are better than Whitecaps or CFM is irrelevant. They should be using a higher bar in my opinion. It’s like three adults gloating that they got over 75% on their grade 5 times tables quiz. 
     
    I re-read your post though and I take your point that TFC is not the only one that should be held to that higher bar. 
     
    Apart from Davies and Adekugbe, though, I couldn’t see building as strong a lineup from Whitecap academy grads

    While that may be true I think the point is relative to what they could have (or should have depending on your perspective) done. 
     
    This is a line up composed purely of players who have had time in the academy or TFC2 and who have had at least a cup of coffee in MLS somewhere OTHER than Toronto, and this is only scratching the surface at most positions. Apart from keeper which is a real black hole, I would be confident to put this side up against most MLS opposition. 
    Roberts
    Godinho Henry Dunn Morgan
    Kaye Fraser Teibert
    Edwards Babouli Pasher
    I think the argument is that by rights TFC should be fielding an almost entirely homegrown side by now and the fact that they aren’t is a condemnation of the pathway. It’s not the training or the talent otherwise this list of decent MLS/CPL/USL players wouldn’t be as long as it is:
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toronto_FC_Academy
    (Whoops. Babouli is the only one not to play elsewhere in MLS. I was trying to avoid the ones who were majority TFC players and nowhere else. Lots of other players you could sub in though, which was my main point)
