    That was just for the Confederations Cup purposes wasn't it?  Its not like we get the trophy if we lose to Qatar.

    I worry this set up offers little in attack/pressure release. Unless we are dominating possession, we are just matching them in midfield and hoping to stifle for 90 minutes. Even the wingbacks, if they get forward on a nice release, likely have no real option to convert a counter attack.
    It's tough for me to say, I haven't watched Mexico this tournament. But my feeling is if they roll with Funes Mori we would be better off with a higher defensive line and forecheck.

    In terms of being a player's manager? Sure... but he had no tactical knowledge. He would basically just put out a best XI in a 4-2-3-1 and tell them to "express themselves"

    Just thinking about how we could employ a 4-2-2-2 here and I like it.

    He did well in OQC - we drew the 2nd best team in the tournament and gave Mexico a closer match, at home no less, than France did at the Olympics. We only conceded 3 goals in 4 matches .. and sure we relied on Buchanan a lot but as he's shown for the men's team he was head and shoulders above anyone else on that squad.

    It's just crazy to me how some of these "football nations" can be so ignorant about other national teams and players that play at top levels. Surely these Mexican journalists know about Timothy Weah and Eugene Pizzuto.. yet they don't know about one of the best players on the same club? The same guy who won the Golden Boot at the last Gold Cup?! Truthfully, I think we have the most knowledgeable football media in CONCACAF.

    Sturing vs Cayman Islands was off a corner but definitely fortuitous given the opponent. Larin scored off a Davies free kick vs Bermuda. Davies is not a good taker but he’s our only left footed option. Gutierrez would be a nice left footed option but it doesn’t seem likely that he’ll be a starter.

    Well that’s just it for too. Clearly the gold cup matters to these on the fence guys and it has to if we want to win them over. Otherwise what’s the point in playing for Canada? It’s clear from our players that this means a ton to them and that’s all that matters at the end of the day. Guys like Eustaquio and Corbeanu had other options and are in the middle of big offseason but are here playing their hearts out.

    He’s now resorting to trying to convince everyone that they subconsciously share his viewpoint because no one agrees with him. 
     
    This is the only trophy we have a shot at. It’s just so ridiculous ... this board follows club results and friendlies religiously but when it comes to our continental championship we should just not care. Save it for the friendlies and World Cup qualifiers we play every 4 years.

    Dude, give it up already. It’s fine if you don’t think the Gold Cup is important. Stop telling other people whether they think it’s important or not. Why in the world would I (or anyone else in this thread) be arguing that the Gold Cup is important, if we didn’t think it was. You’re really grasping at straws to try to prove your point.
