    LeoH037 got a reaction from johnyb in Herdman new head coach   
    Not starting Cavallini and Hoilett and saving them as late subs was brilliant. They aren't as young and energetic as Davies and David, so they can't go full intensity for 70 mins. However, when they both came on they were able to go at full pace for 20 minutes and the American defenders and midfield were to exhausted to do anything about it. Cavallini harassed the hell out of that American backline, not allowing them to settle down and get anything going. I'm glad he got his goal, truly deserved it.

    oh you poor soul... thank you for not giving up on the team right there and then. No one would have blamed you if you did.
    On another note, oh man, if you though the guys were hungry last night against the USA, wait till we get to face Honduras again If Herdman can finally put those 8-1 demons to rest then **** it, make him GG or something.

    Herdman, IMO, justified his appointment last night. He now has a bit more rope. I wasn't as down on him as some where. I wanted to wait a few games to make judgement - and I got pretty bummed after Haiti - but I think that performance speaks volumes. 

    I literally got into soccer around the time of the Honduran 8-1. I think that was the first (certainly one of the first) Canada game I ever watched. I ordered pizza and beer and sat there in disbelief. 

    This is the happiest I've been in my short history as a fan!

    I commend Herdman last night.  Tactically spot on in my opinion.  
    Backline was great.  Piette was exceptional.  Fraser came in for his first ever game probably had people worried.  Junior and Cavallini late subs.  Many people don't ever have Osorio in their starting midfield but I can't remember a bad game he's had for Canada this year.

    Wrong. He made a lot of the right decisions over the last year to get to last night.

    Every time he has spoken and every time his players have spoken they have talked about building a winning program. Last night was simply that program coming into it's own.

    Will be make mistakes going forward, sure, he's not perfect, but anyone saying he has no business coaching the CMNT can **** right off.

    I try not bandwagon too hard either way on anything but there were a lot of great signs this morning/last night.
    If you can't see the players have bought in* and are playing hard and willing to play Herdman's formations, watching this game can't be that fun for you.  Players did their jobs and were playing for something: you have to acknowledge that is what he brought to the women's program and, despite many, including me, not sure that would translate over to the men's game, it has happened for a hugely important game. 
    The identification of what their weaknesses were and the selection of players to attack them, were spot on.  
    The subs were somewhat risky but this was a must win and they had the perfect result. 
    Roll on the Magic Kingdom. 
    *Arfield screaming at the top of that pile after the second goal was huge for me.

    While pressing teams like Mexico and the USA usually proves effective, its a very high risk game plan IMO. If we had better defenders could be depended on to put out a fire, then yeah, we'd have the offensive tools to press them, however, Vitoria is not the fastest, and Cornelius and Miller are still young and susceptible to mistakes, which they would likely make if suddenly placed under a ton of pressure due to an American counter. This is a game where I really wish we had Henry available, and for James to be in form.

    Probably because he is f***ing English. You expect the CSA to know about every kid in the world with some tie to Canada? We are going to miss some kids that are 14,15,16 years old. Why didn't they call him up to more games? Because he didn't want to be called up, he would rather play for the country he's lived in for 99% of his life.
     
    You expect every player with some random connection to Canada should automatically want to play for us but that is not how it f***ing works. Unsurprisingly kids who spent all of their lives living in Italy or England want to play for those countries instead. Acting as though some U15/U17 friendlies is going to want to make some English kid give up his dream to play for Canada is bananas. I hate to say it but there is nothing we could have done to get Tomori. The only way he would play for us is if he was 100% not good enough for England (and likely Nigeria).

    Wild speculation and complete 2+2=7 but wouldn't surprise me if Garde wasn't really interested in having him and it was more a favour to get Ballou back on track between the clubs. Either way I really hope people can rally around him and he picks himself back up otherwise he could be checking his phone contacts searching for Boakai to room with.
