    Also, further to that, if I remember correctly most were worried about our top players getting chopped down by the brutes from Martinique and Haiti.
    Davies - Injured in training.  Larin and Akinola - Injured against the US.
    Ergo, let's stop training and playing top teams.
    Fact of the matter: shit happens.

    No, don't call anyone else up. Also, pull out of the Gold Cup just in case.
    Why subject our soccer players to actual soccer games? Don't want to upset the naysayers.

    He looked great but its one clip.  I would like to see whether he has vision and he looked very one footed (right) which if it is the case will be very limiting in his development

    Someone maybe better able to explain VAR than me but I thought it wasn't the ref's job to actually check. The VAR team automatically check all such incidents in the 18 yard box for penalties.  So I expect they reviewed it and in their opinion there was "no clear and obvious error" in the decision taken by the ref.  And they communicated that to the ref probably when they were dealing with the injuries on the pitch.  If he signaled to go look at the video, it would have meant the VAR team thought it was a penalty and he was sent to verify it.  But for that to happen, the team would have thought it was a "clear and obvious" mistake.  I suspect that when they reviewed it, they thought there wasn't a "clear and obvious" mistake.  Not sure how they came to that conclusion...maybe they felt Laryea's contact on Zimmerman caused him to fall which then was the cause of Laryea's fall.  But then you would have thought that wouldn't have resulted in a corner but a foul awarded against Laryea for that contact.  But I don't think you can change that as that is not reviewable.  Or they thought the two players collided legally but Zimmerman fell over and then Laryea tripped over him which is not a penalty.  I could see that but what I saw was Zimmerman lunging when he fell which to me is different that players colliding legally and one falling over and then the other falling over him incidentally.  
    The ref himself can ask for it to be reviewed but that is unusual.

    It's brutal. And it may just be me but our keepers (Borjan and Pantemis) seem to do it more than our opponents.

    How sweet is revenge though? Let’s savour it. We pissed and moaned about the Haiti game for two years and we’ve now beat them 3 straight and knocked them out of two competitions handily.

    I’m pretty sure there’s more to it than comparing Liga mx vs Süper Lig or what ever 11-20 ranked league in Europe. I would want Larin and Hutch at Bestikas over any club in Mexico but I think I would choose a team Iike Club America over a team like Kayserispor. Anyways, every player and situation is unique and what I think is important is that the player is being challenged and playing at their highest level. Someone in Liga MX  would still be a very useful CMNT player and until we out grow that we should still want players playing in Mexico.

    Agreed.  As an aside, the rosters in September will be materially different than Sunday.  USA may have 11 different players.  We'll have 4-5 different players, maybe more (Davies, David, Milan, Eustaquio, Arfield maybe, Atiba maybe, etc.)
    Also, we're not good enough to get too cute (as you rightly say).  We are trying to build a winning mentality and that is difficult.  Taking the foot off the gas would be a step backward in approach.  We might try hard and lose, but that is part of growing.

    Because if he was then carded vs the USA or in the QF he’s out of a knockout game. Now his next game is the QF and even if he’s carded it’s wiped.

    I really think we’ll see Arfield in September. He’ll be missing out basically he’s only chance for a World Cup. Osorio is a interested debate because at times he looks amazing out there but at times he looks Avg and can’t finish. He’s the perfect MLS player. I wish he went overseas to get better.

    Geez I haven't posted on this forum for ages. Nice to be back.
    Despite yesterday's 4-1 win, I thought it was close to the worst performance in Herdman era. Our boys were generally slow, disorganized and lacked concentration and motivation. 
    - The amount of giveaways were staggering.
    - Kaye is not having a great Gold Cup. I miss the Arfield-Piette duo, they were pretty good with transition.
    - We all knew this, but our CB will get torn apart with better opposition. I already miss Kennedy. Replacing Piette for Eustaquio might be a good thing vs. the US.
    - Not sure Cavallini + Larin works (despite Larin's 2 goals).

    On a final note. It's good to finally bitch about games we win.

    Not a big fan of this.  This just smacks of being too cute and thinking too far ahead.  We can't control how the Americans are going to be in September.  For all we know, they could go down to El Salvador, get embarrassed on Sept. 2nd and be out for blood no matter who they are playing.  I'm betting that at least 80% of the starting 11 in September will be different than the starting 11 we play on Sunday.
    If you're looking for a silver lining for David and Davies and Eustaquio not playing, then fine.  There you go.  But there should be nothing stopping us from putting our best players available out on the pitch.  A good showing against the US team in a tournament like this might catch the eye of a scout or two, which would only be good for the program.
    Always play to win.

    Eustaquio is third behind Davies and David for me. We have a ready-made Hutch replacement and we should be very grateful for that fact. It's the attacking portion of our midfield that needs more quality.
