    Lots of our players have looked great for their club teams. They would probably look great for us as well if they had an opportunity to work together and become familiar with one another.

    Not sure where you get that.  I’ve watched all of our players and many of the Haitian players live and on broadcasts throughout the years, qualifying and this tournament.  It’s an educated opinion - if you have something to contribute please do.  Davies, Cavallini, David, Henry etc. - I just can’t see how any reasonable person can say they outmatched us athletically and wore us down in that match.  We wore ourselves down mentally and lost our belief.  But of course no manager is going to say that because that points right at them.  We needed an injection of energy at some point.

    The whole “they wore us down physically” comments by Herdman are so ridiculous.  We were playing a lower standard of athlete .. they were not physically imposing at a level above us. Just a stupid cop out.  We fell apart, plain and simple.  There was no alleged physical wearing down.  The goals came from 2 errors and a defensive breakdown.

    The Ashtone Morgan sub was the ultimate irony.  Here we have a team that is being touted as the best ever and an improvement on past cycles.  Plus, a coach that isn’t absurdly defensive and makes thoughtful lineup choices.
    10 minutes left, we need a goal.  We bring in a left back who couldn’t even break into any of those previous squads or his MLS team.  So, so crazy and as @zeelaw said I kind of admire the balls but the chances of it paying off were so slim.  Even if we equalized, unless Morgan scored or assisted, people would still question it. 
    Kind of just the cherry on top of a “you’ve come nowhere” feeling match.  If you told me Morgan would be in the Canada squd, let alone coming in with us needing a goal in 2019, I’d say you were nuts.

    Buzz are you just playing devils advocate??  What do you really think?  Very few of us are high level players or coaches but we've all watched about a million hours of soccer and listened to the accompanying commentary by experts.  Did it look to you like Haiti was physically dominating us, wearing us out, out muscling us in challenges, knocking our guys around etc??  Did it look like our guys were wore down or more like they were in the drivers seat until they had 2 very bad defensive lapses in quick succession and the whole team was mentally rattled and never regained their composure?  Taking all opinions about herdman and zambrano out of it, does Herdmans assesment jive at all with what you saw in that game??

    If OZ is as good as some make him out to be why hasn't he ever coached in Europe, won anything or held down a job for more than a couple years?
    He won an MLS supporters shield but that's it.

    Of course I meant on average and not all but there’s no question we have better athletes in our ranks.  For example, Davies was likely the best athlete in the tournament.  That Saba guy who was playing wing for them didn’t even look like a professional footballer. Edit:  Just checked and he isn’t - he plays in the Haitian league.
    Respect to Nazon and Pierrot.. they are big guys, quick too.  But we lost because of 3 of our own breakdowns. 
    And if Herdman was really concerned about this physicality and athleticism we had the players to go to war.  Cavallini and Henry are more imposing than anything they could throw out... and how do you complain about this “wearing down” and then take off your most imposing player?  Craziness.

    I'm not sure anyone did, unless it was preferring to play us instead of Mexico. The chance that we could out-score you (no matter how many gaffes in the back) was very real. After four games we were level with Mexico for most goals-per-game with an average of 3.5 goals scored per game. This after not scoring a goal in the 2013 and 2015 versions of the tournament. Something we need to remember in terms of progress after this painful exit.

    Cordova can play up and down both wings, central mid and DM.  I like the idea of calling him over Godinho due to his playing style, versatility and the fact he doesn’t get injured every other week.
    I think he’ll be valuable to us in rotating the squad, which is inevitable.

    Here’s the story that stands out for me: Milan Borjan is supposed to be a leader and completely destroyed his young defenders confidence.  Why?  I don’t know but it’s the second time this year he’s put us in a bad spot with a mistake.. luckily vs FG we recovered, today we couldn’t.
    He had time to clear that back pass and for whatever reason tried to be fancy with it. To show up the Haitian and his young defender? I can’t think of a reason that ball wasn’t cleared and it’s the second time I’m saying that in 5 matches now.  Then he yells at the defender..
    Piss poor leadership from our second most experienced player on the pitch.  We are a young team and a “leader” didn’t lead tonight and it mentally lead to us falling apart IMO. 
    ** notwithstanding the fact that Godinho shouldn’t have been a starter in this tournament anyway as I questioned pre-game.
