    Stoppage Time got a reaction from GasPed in WCQ | Window 1 | Match Day 3: Canada vs El Salvador- Wednesday, Sept 8th, 7:30pm Eastern / 4:30pm Pacific - Toronto, BMO Field   
    At a game at Swangard in Burnaby (lead up to 1992?) against El Salvador, Pesch flicked the corner flag at a Salvadoran player who had been needling him. The blue clad player fell to the ground as if shot, and Pesch was shown the red. We lost at home playing with ten men after dominating early on. It was a really dumb move and a devastating WCQ home result.

    Last night I listened to the radio broadcast on TSN 690 and was presently surprised to hear Amy Walsh was part of the broadcast team. She and her sisters were great players and contributors in the growth of women's soccer.

    Congratulations to Pacific! That was a gutsy performance in a classic game. I think that VWFC was outworked for the most part. Well done! To Pacific FC fans, talk this up and get your buddies and co-workers out to Starlight Stadium to see some games. This is a good opportunity to grow the brand on the Island.

    The absence of Bustos encouraged everybody else to step up and they did. Bustos would have been the obvious guy on whom to focus defensively. Whitecap defenders may have had a tougher time because Bustos was not there to be the focus of every Pacific attack.

    I remember the Summit Series very well. At the time, and, notably, at the height of the Cold War, the USSR was winning the Olympic hockey gold medal constantly because its "professionals" (Spartak Moscow, Central Red Army, Locomotiv Spartak, etc.), who in the USSR were classified as amateurs, played against real Canadian amateurs from various "non-professional" (read non-NHL) organizations. The USSR hardly lost. The thought in the USSR at the time was that the NHL professionals who played for money in the evil capitalist manner would be wiped off the face of the earth by the people's team from the workers' paradise. Thus, two challenges emerged. First, the NHL players were out to defeat Tretiak and Kharlamov and Yakishev and their peers. Second, the Soviet government was eager to demonstrate on the international stage that the Motherland would prevail and that true sport was not corrupted by greed. Canada won the series on a late Paul Henderson goal. The players' representative,  the infamous Alan Eagleson, was rescued from "the KGB" by players who went into the stands after the game, and the rest is history.                                                                                                                                                                     As for the hockey, the USSR was pretty good and provided a very strong challenge. The series could have gone either way. In fact, the crowd in Vancouver infamously booed the Canadian team off the ice after a lackluster loss to the Soviets. This drew the ire of several Canadian players. The series was a huge deal in Canada at the time.

    Good work, Corazon! I wonder if a best 11 from this list would beat a best Canadian 11 presently playing in the CPL. That would be an  interesting match to watch. Cheers!

    As I have suggested before, it would be fabulous if each one of the largest eight Canadian banks each adopted one of the CPL teams for $250,000 per year (pittance for banks). The champion team's sponsor gets bragging rights for the year with CEO bets and all of that fun stuff. That is easily feasible in my opinion. Cheers!

    I would say Miller has played his way on. That one is pretty easy. 
    Corbeanu I am less sure about, but at minimum he's raised his stock with WCQ and now Gold Cup. Especially with his sub appearance against Mexico in a big game, that really showed that he can make an impact at this level. I can see him and Millar both being included in our larger squad (if we call one), but we may not both in the same 23.
    Sturing I don't think will be involved much, if at all. He may sneak onto a 28 or 30 man roster, but I cannot see him getting on the field considering he saw no Gold Cup action and was only involved against the minnows in the previous rounds of WCQ.
    Got a feeling we won't see much of Paton, unfortunately. I hope he makes a few Ocho rosters, but with Wotherspoon and maybe Arfield, hard to see where the opportunity comes.
    Here's one who's stock went up despite not playing in Gold Cup: Gutierrez. He's a locked in starter at Vancouver and would have played in Gold Cup if the Whitecaps didn't beg us to leave him behind. This may partly be me just wanting him to be involved, but I really think he makes his debut next window.

    Ah! Thanks for that. Which "marginal" Canadians might make a 23 then? A 28 or 30 player roster would allow for almost anybody to be included even as a "get to know the boys" invite.
