  1. I initially liked RS post about Larin acceleration but I then took it off after reading UT. RS, I'll like your post only if you edit it to add some sort of mention about the weak opposition. Also comparing the defending with the Uruguayan league defending would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. RIP Tony. Thanks for everything you've done for soccer in this country.
  3. Unless Jadon's mother is Canadian, I don't see the connection with Canada since his father is dutch.
  4. Can we play the Faroe Islands twice in a neutral site in Europe in March (with a Euro base squad) while playing Antigua and Barbuda twice in Canada (with a NA base squad) at the same time?
  5. Excuse my ignorance, as I haven't been here that much lately, but who that would be?
  6. Speaking of disappearance, I noticed that jpg75 hasn't posted here in while.
  7. So the US want to lose that game because they want ES in the Hex but ES want to lose as well because they know they don't stand a chance in the Hex. When we have a scenario like that, we need to remember that "only in CONCACAF" 1994 Barbados-Grenada game: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbados_4–2_Grenada_(1994_Caribbean_Cup_qualification)
  8. He is close to the ball when the ball is crossed. It's a matter of a fraction of a second. I think his body shape could've been better and he could've made himself bigger whne he came out (that's where I agree with Conway). I agree that he is a bit erratic at times but from what I've seen from Crépeau so far, I think Borjan is still a good step ahead. Of course, like I said, a solid club season for Crépeau could change the whole goalkeeping picture.
  9. That wasn't a horrific goal and I think people here are very tough on Milan for that goal. I don't think the decision to come out is a bad one since the US player would've been all alone with all the time to move toward the goal with no pressure and time to make a pass in front of the goal. He also almost blocked the the cross, so to blame him for that goal is IMHO a bit harsh. He had to react in a second to a defensive mistake and it almost worked, so not sure he deserves much of the blame here. Regarding Max, yes friendlies are nice but a solid club situation is better to assess a
  10. First, what's the "horrific" goal Borjan gave away against the US? Second, concerning Max, as a MNT fan I would find it more comforting if he could prove himself with a decent team where he isn't facing 25 shots per game. I think he's really good but I think playing for a poor team in front of a very average defense isn't helping his case since he has very little pressure. That's clearly not his fault and he has done his job but on a MNT perspective, I would like to see him playing well in a more challenging club situation before I'm ready to say that he's good enough to take Borjan place
  11. Maybe they are just using those friendlies to see whether they are competitive enough for the Hex? Getting some results would give them confidence and loosing all 4 games could send them in the 7-35 path which is better than finishing last in the Hex.
  12. Agree. I don't remember a save Steffen made that a keeper of Guzan quality wouldn't make.
  13. I could see him becoming an assistant to Stephen Hart in Halifax....
  14. JH and the players can talk about culture and identity all they want but some of us, fans, want to see it on the field. So far, we only had one true test and we failed badly against Haiti. I'm not saying JH isn't operating changes that will help in the future but that so far it's just talk and that I'm still skeptical since I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe it's working.
