    Holy sh*t guys,
    I'm sitting at yvr picking up some people and I've seen about a dozen mexicanos walking through here, with their annoying green jerseys and all....
    .....they went straight for the water fountains to marvel at the miracle of running water.

    This is reaching the realm of being too technical, but we will know just after half what the result of Honduras/El Salvador is.  If Honduras does get a win on the road this does become a match where we absolutely need a point at a minimum.
    Let's just win and make it easier

    Im not and never would accept the idea of playing for a loss.  Just saying stick to the game plan.  I think the style of play that we've been using since Floro took over (compact, holding our shape, minimizing mistakes, playing the ball on the deck and taking our chances when they come) can get us goals and a win on Friday.  Even if we are down a goal or 2, our system can lead to a goal and a comeback.  
    I'm just saying not to panic, not to change the game plan.  Its not a do or die game.

    Floro stoic as it comes. 
    Big game, hope we have the Canadian support in full swing and noise level louder than ever. Fingers crossed for a sell out. What an achievement that would be.

    The shot at 0:50 of the bench celebrating with the flags waving in the background gives me goosebumps!

    Yes, goal differential is crucial.  Perhaps the most likely scenario is that we go into the last 2 games tied for second place with Honduras on 4 points, and we each finish the round on 7 points with goal differential deciding it.  They are already -2 so we have an edge.
    If we are down a goal against Mexico, we can't lose our heads and game plan and throw everything forward looking for an equalizer.  Mexico will open us up.  Remember, a one goal loss to Mexico at home is better than what Honduras managed.

    I think it was one of the CSA town halls back in the day where it was said that Canada is the only place (not even the US) where CONCACAF teams don't bring their own chef to protect from food poisoning.
    So...go us?

    I wasn't able to make it to this game, but I talk about it all the time to anyone willing to listen. I have convinced two friends travelling to Vancouver this weekend to go and they aren't even soccer fans. 
    Let's all keep talking about the game and creating that exposure!

    Not necessarily, could be a scenario where goal differential comes into play (as it is FIFA's first tiebreaker, not head-to-head.....bush league), so we need to at least compete against Mexico and Honduras. Or hope Mexico completely pumps ES to get their GD down.

    Regardless of what happens for us versus Mexico... If Honduras can't get a win against El Salvador and we manage to beat El Salvador we make it through, am I right? This is assuming Neither of them can get results against Mexico. Lots of pressure on Honduras at the moment.

    In terms of my order of preference formhowntheae two games go:
    1) two draws (ES gets 2 points, Honduras gets 2 points)
    2. Each gets a win (ES gets 3 points, Hinidtas gets three points)
    3. ES gets one win and one draw (ES gets 4 points, Honduras gets 1 point)
    4. Honduras gets one win and one draw (Honduras gets 4 points, ES gets one point)
    5. ES gets two wins (ES gets 6 points, Honduras gets none)
    6. Honduras gets two wins ( Honduras gets 6 points, ES gets none)
    scenarios 1 or 2 would put us in very good position.
    scenario 3 would be good
    scenario 4 would put us in dead heat with Honduras
    scenarios 5 or 6 would suck

    El Salvador a slight favorite over Honduras on the betting odds. Likely as the result of El Salvador being the home team. oh man if Larin just buried that header or scored on his mini-breakaway in the 90+ min. I guess same could be said if Borjan didn't make that huge save!  Let's hope Larin buries one vs Mexico!!!
     
    Not sure about you guys but I am cheering for the double tie in the ELS-HON games hehe. Even if we put up a double goose egg vs the best team in CONCACAF..... we are still in the driver's seat with the double tie.

    Perhaps this board has driven me to the optimist train but I'm not sure how we have worse odds against Mexico than St Vincent did against Guatemala.
