    To amanfromvancouver:
    I'm not here to criticize you or your ideas.  However, I think that you have misunderstood what the Voyageurs stand for (which is supporting the sport of soccer/football in Canada) and the issues we've had in the past in trying to get more pro-Canadian support in the stadiums.  You are entitled to your views and if you find the views of members of this board to be overly critical of your views then I'm sorry you feel that way.  However, as you can tell, many of us have experience in being drowned out by away support at home games while when Canada goes to Central America, it's outright hostile.  Most are not advocating making the atmosphere the same as Azteca where the supporters shine lasers in the keeper's eyes or in Honduras, El Salvador, etc where bags of urine are launched from the stands.  BUT is it not the right of our own national teams to want to be able to play in front of passionate supporters?  Because if you don't think that's the case, then what incentive is there for our players to want to bust their ass off for Canada?

    The trip was so much fun, I still feel like I am on a high even after an annoying 9 hour day at work!
    Are we going to have a common place where we can all upload our photos? I'm happy to share my ****** photos and get access to everyone else's good pics (to clarify, I'm not hoarding my good photos -- all of mine suck because I am really bad at pictures )

    When I was a kid I was quite a bit more serious about eating than soccer. My mom got tickets to a game in Edmonton but I decided not to go because I wanted to play with some sticks. That game wound up being the Eddy Berdusco Game against Brazil and I missed it. I am still angry at myself over that.
    You owe it to your kids to make them cheer for Canada.

    The last time I went to Mexico City it was for work. I learned the hard way that you are only allowed to bring one computer into Mexico ( I brought my work computer & my personal computer). I was stopped by customs and I don't know what came over me but I actually argued with the customs agent. I think I  am lucky that I don't have a threatening presence because eventually he go tired of me and let me go with both computers. I thought I would share though, in case anyone was thinking of bringing two computers.

    Yeah I hit the button and got flagged so I guess I was number 6. They said they were worried I was going to sell one of the computers there. I Told them my work computer is a slow piece of garbage and at the time I had a crapy net book for personal use so selling seemed unlikely.  I think the only reason they let me go was because I was getting hysterical and it wasn't worth their time, and I wasn't very threatening.

    I posted this in the fb event, but I thought I'd share here too. I think it's self-explanatory.
     
    Listen folks. It's the time before a big important game that I start to get nervous and neurotic. This is especially true this time with Mexico being the opponent and the huge crowd. Mexico is a tough opponent, of course, and there will be sizeable away support. The size of that support is just another thing to get nervous and neurotic about. It's time to stop all that. On the podcast that I do with Jeff Salisbury and Lars Matthew, From the Black Hole, we recently interviewed Canadian Men's National Team assistant coach, Micheal Findlay. I found it very interesting how he talked about the change in mentality of the Men's National Team players, from a mentality where they felt they were always up against tremendous odds, to one where they were confident they could achieve things that they once thought were beyond them. It's time for us to change our mentality too. Worrying about the performance, worrying about the size of the away support, worrying that soccer isn't the sport of choice in Canada, etc, etc, is all born of pointless insecurities. Enough already. Regardless of our current opponent, we have a decent chance of making the hex. Regardless of the away support, we might set a record for highest attendance at a National Team match. Let's do the things we CAN do to enjoy this and the things we NEED to do to create the atmosphere for our boys in red. Get to the pre-game early. Get your friends there too. Link up with others in The Voyageurs family. Leave for the match on time. Sing your heart out. Follow your capo and be coordinated. Enjoy the ride. Enjoy the after party no matter what, and remember we just witnessed history in the making.

    Very important we build this. 
    We MUST leave at 5:45.   I don't care if you just ordered a beer.  We need to be in that stadium making noise for our team as early as possible.
    The Mexicans have  march planned that will involve thousands. 
    We need to push this.

    Well done CSA on getting a friendly with the Netherlands in April. http://www.canadasoccer.com/canada-wnt-to-face-netherlands-in-april-p159264-preview-1
    As hosts of the EURO, they don't have to play qualifying games in April so the options were limited.
    So we have:
    April FIFA dates -> Netherlands
    May/June FIFA dates Brazil x2
     
    The "July 20th -> until the start of the Olympics on August 3rd" friendly will only be set once the draw is done IMO.

    Yep, that's why I supported. I live far enough away that I don't have anything personally invested in the team.  But it's a chance to support Canadian development, and I would be happy to invest money toward other teams when the need/opportunity presents.

    MrsC got a reaction from The Ref in CONCACAF Women's U-17 Championship in Grenada March 3rd-13th   
    Having watched the game, it was painful. But keep in mind there were a few things at play.  As mentioned above, not bringing Deanne Rose was a terrible miscalculation. We also didn't have Kennedy Faulknor in the lineup for this game (not sure if she is injured?) and the defense was almost non-existent without out her. Lysianne Proulx took a knee to the head about halfway into the first half and should have come out.  This for me is the most worrying thing that happened last night.  One, because it didn't seem like we followed any concussion protocols and two, because the back up keeper seemed scarred shitless about the prospect of entering the game.  It looked to me like we put a child at risk because we had no depth there.
    If we had Rose's attack up front, Faulknor on Defense and a keeper that wasn't seeing stars most of the game, I'm still not sure we would have won, but we wouldn't have been thumped.  In fairness to Proulx, even injured, she was still the one of the best players on the pitch.

    I would say that this is not partisan because we're not supporting this club instead of any other, we're starting with this one and discussing how we can do this for other clubs in the future.

    Not with that lineup.  As soon as I saw the defensive line I felt Herdman had underestimated Nadia Nadim.  I am starting to wonder how much attention he pays to the NWSL.  I am a bit surprised we couldn't score though.

    I'm worried as well. We have been mostly standing still while others have been progressing. 
    I like the youth movement. But I was struck by several highlights of the American women over their previous few games and just thought 'When have we ever done that?' Like the goal by Dunn earlier this week. When have we seen a Canadian woman cut inside like that and pick out the far corner with an unstoppable shot. All of our U17s etc should be watching those videos and trying to emulate that.
