    From an humanitarian perspective, good for them. The players/citizens are battling much bigger issues than football

    Who the heck is cuba going to have left to play in nations league? Whoever else they call up are just going to defect during nations league. 
    Embarrassing. Its like they try so hard to qualify for these things so they get the opportunity to defect.

    Why rest Borjan who's a keeper? I want to keep him sharp and avoid him going cold.
    Crepeau...it's business, not personal

    Not sure if posted early, claims of 4 additional Cuba defectors are surfacing. I understand that brings the total to 5.
    We need the time together and should field our starting eleven

    Yeah, that is the one part I don’t get. Maybe I am misunderstanding the rigours of keeping but barring injury or a ridiculously busy game it doesn’t seem like a position where resting is needed. 
    Mid we just want to give Crepeau some time that is one thing, but resting Milan seems unnecessary.

    Ouch. If the guy who got the red card last game isn’t one of them, that would make six players unavailable to play us

    You probably need to take your own advice at this point.

    No, I understand.  It’s: “quote (a person or a piece of written or spoken text) inaccurately.” And you purposely deleted a portion of my quote.  So, I don’t know what kind of alt-reality  you’re trying to create but stop. You’re trolling at this point.

    “Here let me twist why I misquoted you” never change @Acid-Tone. Yep, I’m the stupid one for admitting Jiménez was the one guy and for you PURPOSELY deleting that portion.  That’s the funniest part, you went out of your way to misquote me and now you’re playing victim.

    I have better things to do than to be on here quoting and correcting every last stupid thing you say, but since you insist:
     
     
    You asked me to point you towards "where these $35 million dollar players were?"   So I did.   Yeah, sure you mentioned Jimenez, but it's hard to give you much credit for it since you were waaaay off on his actual value.
    I directed you towards a page that listed the price that Wolverhampton recently PAID for Jimenez.   Not a ball-park “market value” guess from some some guy on the internet.  When actual hard numbers are available it's silly to rely on transfermarket for that info.
     
    You said  “According to transfermarket they had one guy worth anywhere near the number Herdman threw out - Raul Jimenez.”   
    But Jimenez isn’t worth “anywhere near” the number Herdman threw out, he’s worth quite a bit more actually!   That Guardian article lists his price at $30 million pounds, and I've seen Portuguese media listing the price at $38 mill Euro's.   When you convert the money, that would put his value at either $50 or $57 million CAD, depending on which media outlet you go with.
     
    The gist of what Herdman was saying was that some of these young guys learned a lot because they were swimming in deep international waters for their very first time.  If you are going to go nit-picking that statement, you should first make sure you know what you're talking about!

    I thought he said that as well but he actually said “culture” and not “coach” but I suppose the deeper meaning is the same. 
    I wish TSN wasn’t so naive to football.. they should have OZ in studio and a headline that says “FURY OF OZ: EX-CANADA BOSS SOUNDS OFF ON TACTICS AFTER MEXICO LOSS”
    Being a football country is right at our doorstep but our media is too incompetent to realize how to harness it.
    Cant be too upset at the loss or care what OZ thinks.  This was house money we were playing with.  It means almost nothing.  The Mexicans can be happy they didn’t trip up and feel confident for next time and then we can throw everything at them with higher stakes.
    Honestly, Mexico is not a hugely impressive team that is a level above our best XI.  Our best on their best - let’s go, I back our guys.

    Looking forward to this one.  I think we always suspected the 1st game against Mexico was not likely to be a 100% effort, so it is difficult to read too much into it.  Against Cuba I am looking for a dominant display from us that puts other teams on notice that we are here to play.

    Trust me, if Floro could have grinded his way to a 0-0 result against Mexico, he would have done so. He had two chances and lost by a combined score of 5-0.
    This was neither pass or fail, it was experimentation. Whether this was the right time to do so is up for debate, but I was fine with it.
