    I could see both the USA and Mexico being bounced in the QFs. Jamaica and Honduras will not be easy games.

    Does he though? He has some flair but has virtually no professional experience and his Canada appearances have been against essentially semi-pro teams.

    Just off the top of my head.. what we've learned from the GC so far:
    - Buchanan is a great option at LWB/RWB;
    - Miller is starter material on the backline;
    - Eustaquio is our set piece taker going forward and 3rd best player;
    - Crepeau is a solid option in net and comfortably #2; and
    - We can control games against teams not named Suriname and Haiti.
     
    The pros outweigh the cons. Of course it was the right call to bring the best squad we could. Davies rolled his ankle in training and Akinola suffered a freak injury. It happens. If not playing for Canada both things could have happened during the same week with their club teams.
    We are in a better position going into WCQ. Period.

    Is it on the record that he "unnecessarily forced players for this competition"?  I haven't seen any evidence of that.  In fact, I've seen the opposite.
    I find that surprising for someone who considered Miller "weak" against Haiti but then "sharp" against the US.  Might lead one to think that you learned something about him.  Maybe that he is a solid defensive optionshould we run into injuries now that he has played with the rest of the back line .
    Also:
    - Eustaquio has some offensive prowess and maybe should be pushed forward a bit but he needs more support in the middle.
    - The entire back line needs to work on concentration from minute 1, particularly those in the wingback role.
    - Still need to work on cutting through when the opposition is lying deep.
    - Cavallini/Larin partnership needs some work before its ready for primetime.
    - Johnston is solid defensively but moderately suspect going forward.
    - Pasher, despite solid club form, needs a few more reps with the team before he understands his role.
    I'm sure there's more.

    Akinola’s injury should not factor in to any debate about whether we should have brought our best players unless someone is going to argue that once he committed to our program we should have immediately ignored him and brought Bair or Brym instead and just hope that Ayo’s club chemistry with Oso and Laryea would be enough to get him acclimated with the full team.

    Haidar Al Shaibani played in L2, interestingly when confirming this I just found out he's goalkeeping coach at Saint-Etienne. Also, Tam Nsaliwa played in Spain's second division. 
    In Serie B we've had Desjardins, Grande and Uccello off the top of my head.

    How anyone can complain about Herdman at this point is beyond reason.
    I was once in that camp, but have changed that tune drastically due to what I’ve seen.
    He’s brought on more coaches for help, and has added a game day earpiece to receive extra help. We’ve changed/tested our formation several times, landing on what I’ve been banging the drum for in the 352 - as I still think it suits our crop of players. We had an 8 game win streak snapped against a USMNT that cleaaaarrrly didn’t deserve that win.
     If there’s any talk of a firing, let it be after WCQ.

    No one can convince me that those are actual Qatar fans in the stands wearing generic tshirts with thunder sticks. 
     
    I also can’t believe Qatar won the Asian Cup with the amount of snobs that act like AFC is way ahead of CONCACAF... they’re not all that impressive and this is their “A” squad.
