  1. Almost 400 staff? Does anyone have a rough idea how many the CSA employs? I am assuming our number of employees would be insignificant compared to that.
  2. Yah. Thanks Vic. That was a massive F up. Probably thought he was doing us s favour but didn’t know his own organizations rules.
  3. Says on the Canada Soccer page roster would be released March 11th. I would guess there are lots of last minute negotiations right up until the Concacaf deadline to submit.
  4. Delgado is constantly praised for his engine but technically he is much weaker than Osorio and probably even Fraser. He makes a few atrocious passes every game and gives the ball away easily. Hopefully Fraser gets to start in the CDM soon and we can have Oso Poz and Gallardo?playing under Jozy with Liam pulling the strings.
  5. Jakovic and Kaye starting for LAFC vs Union. Both off to solid starts.
  6. Unfortunately we are not in a position to write off any CB’s right now. When he was playing regularly in Portugal’s top flight it was a no brainer for Herdman. Right now CB is doggies breakfast for the CMNT. Waterman is now solidly in the mix from nowhere because he has started a couple of MLS games. It’s really too bad James did not get out and find some playing time as he would still be very useful to the program.
  7. Really hope he gets his **** together. He appeared to have a huge upside but right now he needs to listen to his former world class striker coach and put in the work to become the player most thought he was capable of.
  8. Now I am in. Thanks for the efforts!
  9. It was an incredible ending. I was hoping for the upset. I guess the reason it didn’t get a great deal of traction in here was due to the minimal number of Canadians playing.😉
  10. Still having issues. Keeps making me sign in after I have signed in. I have entered a team but can’t join your league. Maybe make an open Voyageur league?
  11. Having an issue using that link? Is there a league name we can search up in the MLS site to join that way?
  12. David not getting a lot of touches in the first half vs Roma. On two odd man rushes in favour of Gent, both times the man with the ball passed to the other player instead of David and both opportunities went lacking. The commentator indicated they they should have passed to the Canadian who is in great form. Think David will have chances in the second half.
  13. He could have done better closing the guy down.
  14. Needs to find a second division next before joining our first.😉
  15. Jakovic played alright but could have been closer to the Leon goal scorer for the first one. Didn’t watch the second. Still worry about pace with out more experienced CB’s. Really wish James would find a new club and begin playing at a half-decent level. Vitoria is still in the mix as is Henry. I would guess Herdman will go with whatever guys are playing regularly. Hopefully we will unearth a gem or 2 at CB because it is the one and only position we lack Hex quality in.
  16. TFC can only hope that their Piatti plays as well as Ignacio. That would make the Reds an Eastern favourite barring any more significant injuries.
  17. It’s starting to look like the CSA has fallen asleep at the wheel or they know something about El Salvador that we don’t. Unless the Iceland game counted for them as it did for us, we needed to pick up points in March to make the last window truly count. Perhaps the CSA is counting on ES losses and we will continue to play Caribbean countries at a moments notice to gain easy points. Unless they have some incredible master plan it is disappointing that a squad that desperately needs games to qualify has nothing announced and games are being confirmed for dozens of teams.
  18. Davies and anyone on our roster or for that matter one of the Voyageurs would give us the best pair, he is that good.😁
  19. Davies playing LB vs Schalke. Already had a great run where he glided by 4 players but had it catch in his feet at the box. Bayern up 1-0 in the 20th vs Schalke .
  20. Unfortunate but from what we have seen from Fraser he looks like he is a capable DM and hopefully he will prove us right. The biggest hole will be Bradley’s leadership. Someone will need to step in and assume the captaincy.
  21. Bad news for Bradley but great for Fraser!
  22. The odds are not great for us either way. We are Canada not Brazil. However, since 86 we have never had this much talent compared to the other Concacaf nations. By 2026 our team will have been blooded by either the Hex or The Hunger Games of qualifying. Hopefully we pull off 2022 because that would put us in great position to learn from the experience and shock the world at our Cup. The beauty of it for us is we have guaranteed games coming for the next 6 years leading up to the World Cup. The days of playing a few friendlies in a calendar year are over. Our team will mature and we are capable of qualifying through either route. Maybe unlikely either way but the team will build and we have 2 all World players to work with for the first time ever? Add in guys playing in Europe’s first divisions and MLS and we will be arguably in the mix for 2/3 in Concacaf. It’s gonna be an amazing ride! (If screaming at the tv for the Iceland game is any indication of what is in store!)
  23. What I find baffling is him screaming the same things over and over. I always think we will hear some high level interesting comments and he screams together 20 times a half. I always know I have done a great job coaching when I stop yelling and the players are instinctively doing what they have been taught.
  24. At least we are playing games. The experience will serve us well going forward regardless of which route we need to take. Points tonight would have been massive but we have 3 games of experience and Herdman has a better idea for our Under 23 and our depth for the CMNT. With some strategic games in March and June and an El Salvador screw up we might make the hex yet.
