    CanadaFan123 got a reaction from apbsmith in Lucas Cavallini   
    Cavallini is locked into the squad. His strike rate for us is incredible and we don’t have another striker with his profile. His form for Vancouver is irrelevant at this point (although it would be nice for him to be in form).

    Apparently this kid is making an impact. A Palmeiras supporter was telling me he recently scored 2 goals for the U17 team and there is a buzz around him. What more is they refer to him as just "Canada". As most people know in Brazil your nickname becomes your name. So yes, we might have a player named... Canada. In this article he's referred to as Canada

    Let’s call a spade a spade here, he might be a fine player one day but at this point in his development the second team is probably the better fit. He’s wasn’t exactly killing it in USL and looks a little too diminutive for first team minutes right now (but can still grow).  
    We can point to players like Busio or Pepi but if you watch MLS those guys keep a certain standard from minute 1 when they get on the field. They aren’t dominant from the start but they can play inside a system and pull their weight enough to keep up.
    I agree with the point about being supported by the club. TFC’s development program looks rather broken but let’s not equate that to simply being provided with first team minutes.

    Jamaican fans have been split actually. They know there’s better coaches out there, but they also know the JFF can’t afford them (kind like how we were…). 

    I keep saying it’s way too early to be judging Jamaica based on the basic facts that hindered their overall preparations….I don’t know how many times I gotta say that. 

    Ive spoken directly many times with guys who have been avid active supporters before France 98. Guys who are considered founders like some of our guys here. They understand that Tappa isn’t the best, but he understands the culture, and how to get the best out of some guys while giving opportunities to the born bred jcans (when they can). They say he needs help. It’s the people above him, the infrastructure and the dealings is where the fans want change. For example they recently increased their coaching staff to 4 guys vs ours which has been 6-7 guys with certifications/designations. 

    So to say he’s just a motivator….well he’s got them to a Concacaf final with a squad nowhere as talented as the team they have now.

    It was one game and they organized themselves poorly. The talent is there and they can put out a balanced lineup. That’s all that matters - past results mean nothing. 
     
    The supposition here is that because they had one poor game in their only home game with top players they’ll always have poor games. That’s ridiculous.

    I think it's been allowed in past rounds when travel restrictions have prevented teams from entering certain countries for matches. However, if a federation wants to move qualifying games purely for economic reasons, like selling more tickets, you can expect FIFA and/or CONCACAF to deny the request.

    screw that, I genuinely think we are good enough to get at least a point from Mexico, and we should beat Jamaica. 7 points should be the expectation.

    CanadaFan123 got a reaction from GasPed in Scott Arfield   
    I can agree with most of what you’re saying but when his manager made that comment, in fall 2020, he had never turned down a call because we had never played. He then said he was going to be playing in November 2020 but that never materialized. The real issue is how he’s handled his international duties from March to July 2021.
    He was captain of this squad, despite being a “non-Canadian” in the best Canadian squad of all time. That’s not a good look for anyone and he’s been given a slap on the wrist. He will be given a chance to come back in and I think this squad will forgive him because he’s a good character - not like this is some cancerous player.

    That was a tough one for Tappa. He convinces all these players to come and play one match - I'm sure he felt obliged to start them all. I expect we'll see a much more balanced lineup from them in October, particularly as we have some stars they'll want to shut down.

    I've heard that the UK government is working on exempting players for next window - as they should, it's ridiculous what went down in September. If they don't that would work out nicely for us though. We would be missing Hoilett, Wotherspoon and maybe Arfield and Corbeanu, while Jamaica would be missing half their squad and Mexico would be missing Jimenez.
