  1. I agree with the comments given. It was nice that we scored those goals, and I would have been ecstatic about them in serious competition, but they were mostly down to luck. I would have been happier if they came at the end of some sustained and menacing attacking. I was more pleased with our play at the other end of the pitch. That's what you want to see with the Olympics coming up.
  2. We squandered a lot of excellent goal scoring chances in the last quarter of the game. Great through balls setting up the goal opportunities, followed by abysmal execution by our attackers resulting in no shot on net. That's really the only thing that bothered me in the match.
  3. I just got fed up with the posts over the last few years arguing that TFC should be a training team for Canadian players, regardless of whether they made the team better or not. I love the TFC wins, so was getting irritated at those who don't care if TFC loses as long as Canadians play. As I mentioned above, I'm all for giving the youngsters a chance to play and grow, but I'm against playing them just because they are Canadian. As for playing Mullins, Endoh,... that was down to Vanney. Towards the end, he only wanted to play those who rarely gave away the ball in dangerous situations.
  4. As a TFC fan, for me nothing beats the fun of winning. I'm not willing to watch the team perpetually lose while it trains young Canadians. I get the feeling that lots of people here don't actually care if the team wins, so long as the Canadian rookies get their experience. Well, that's not me. When Leiweke took over, he changed management to make winning a priority, and TFC quickly became a winning team after that. I loved that change, and I'd hate to see us go away from that. So, go ahead and give the kids their chance, but if the team and results look as hopeless as they did in the ear
  5. So true! As far as I can see, there are no FIFA laws against pouring molten silver into eye sockets. It would be a rough go.
  6. To me, taking on Mexico rather than the USA in the semis is not a disaster, it's just a slightly higher mountain to climb. The only real disaster would be to lose to Honduras by four goals and not even make the semis. It looked to me like the coaches had that in mind, as well.
  7. Lille don't give up many good chances against them, and when they do, their goalkeeper is pretty good at making the save. They are tied with PSG for the fewest Goals Against in the league. Sure, they waste a lot of time with the ball and squander a lot on attack, but they only have to pot a small fraction of those to win the game. It's frustrating that they don't score more, but I don't think it's so mysterious why they are top of the table.
  8. I'm sorry to see that TFC didn't resign Piatti. He made them much more dangerous on offense. I think I'll be scowling a lot this season watching whoever it is they replace him with.
  9. Not a good first half for the team. They just aren't executing well; poor passes, out of sync, taking too long on the ball,... I hope they can regroup during the intermission and come out playing better.
  10. I have seen Beckie put away many goals playing for Man City. She definitely has talent and isn't as hopeless as she appeared in those chances. I doubt that Priestman is going to write her off based on this one game. Same as Andonovski isn't going to write off all those American forwards that flubbed their excellent chances.
  11. Huh! I have a lot of respect for Andonovski, and he knows at least 10x more about soccer than I do, so I'll watch the game again on CBC on Saturday and try to see what he saw. I remember a lot of times where our midfield players would pause about half a second to assess the situation and lose the ball to an American sweeping in from behind. The Americans were on their toes and swarming whichever of our midfielders had the ball; they just seemed to react faster to the situation. We also had no answer to their taller midfielders heading every ball that was launched in there (Horan was especi
  12. I think Schmidt is just rusty. She has been great for the Dash since she went there, and played a big part in their success. It's too soon to write her off. Our whole midfield got owned by the Americans in this game. I have to agree with the previous comments praising Gilles. I groaned a bit a the start of the game thinking "Just what we need, a total noob on the back line against the US forwards". Boy, was I wrong.
  13. I guess it's not just the players who are a bit rusty. Anyway, losing 1-0 favours us in that game. I'm not going to get worked up over the missed handball calls.
  14. I had a year's subscription that I got January 30, 2020. Last Sunday (Jan 31, 2021), I had to resubscribe to watch Lille play. I was able to watch stuff the day before. So, the system was working properly for me.
  15. I didn't have this "problem". I lost access the next day after my subscription expired at the end of January. It even took me right to the subscription screen when I logged in and tried to watch something. It's weird that it's different for some.
