    BCM got a reaction from johnyb in The Road to Qatar.   
    It should be very clear by now that there won't be enough space in the calendar for the 7-35 tournament (or Hex) to run as scheduled. It's also very likely that FIFA windows will be reduced to play postponed league matches. This isn't business as usual guys. Expect some massive scheduling compression - which may help us or further hurt us - but it's pointless to even try to change things up now until the health situation becomes clearer.

    Best case scenario would be they run out of dates for the hex and are forced to do two groups of 4. 
    I could also foresee them delaying the Gold Cup to 2022 and using June 2021 to play 4 or even 6 games.  They'd probably ask for a special exception from FIFA to get player release outside the normal window.

    BCM reacted to Kent in The Road to Qatar.   
    The win over Haiti plus the loss to Japan combined to lose them 2 ranking points. The wins over Guatemala and Peru added together with a win over Jamaica in Nations League qualifying (which would have been worth more points than either friendly) gained them 17 points. So that is a net gain of 15 points including the Nations League match I mentioned.
    For anyone curious about the difference those friendlies made.

    Maybe instead of trying to figure out who gets in Hex they can use this time to draw up a proper qualifying procedure to implement as this one is completely tainted whether Canada is in the Hex or not.

    I'm living through this hell in Hong Kong, don't confuse this with the flu - the territory has been in state of panic for more than 8 weeks now, with everyone in masks and living in isolation. We go out every few days for groceries (and deal with runs on essentials), that's it. And we only have a hundred or so cases. This is basically a lost year.
    Sports will return. We can then continue to lament how we should have and could have won matches, done better and will soon be a rising power. Until that time, be careful and stay safe everyone.

    Well let's get a drink when things settle. There is a distinct difference in attitude between "locals" and "expats", and although in the latter category I have been here a long time and am influenced from the former - but I am sure you agree it hasn't been a joyful place to be this year. Schools cancelled since January (the great home schooling experiment -- my kids haven't actually been to school since November) and internet rumour induced shortages. If you're in an industry where you can work from home, firms and the government still advise to work from home. And as you said, others are splitting days. Retail sector is in dire straights because there's no tourists and HKers are for the most part avoiding restaurants and shopping. These measures are working but psychologically it is taking a toll.
    I would also give credit to the people for being uber vigilant (they remember SARS and took quick action), not the government. They deserve credit for shutting the schools, but they didn't handle the border issue well at all (and it's not even shut, only certain crossings -- several thousand people still cross via SB and the airport every day). No need to bore everyone with more HK talk - happy to DM if you want to discuss.
    Anyway, I hope it can be contained in Canada without these measures. But again, be vigilant and safe.
