    I was actually going to go last night but I ran into a problem and in the ene didn’t buy the tickets. I certainly didn’t use Peruvian football as an excuse for that!

    I'd be happy to go to games mate, just as long as they don't conflict with Peru matches. I love this country a lot, but I identify more with my Peruvian side since I was born there and lived 7 years of my life in Lima.

    Jesus, all those El Salvador fans have completely wound up the Voyageurs on Twitter.
    I have my theories, as well as my own case. Firstly, we must analyze if these Salvadorians were born here, if they just work here, if their parents were born here, etc.
    Secondly, keep in mind that El Salvador has always had a bigger footy culture than Canada. Perhaps not a bigger history as they've been average to bad for most of time, but the football culture has always been there. That's always been more appealing. Canada not having a league, not even having a professisonal team til about 2007, has not helped. I honestly cannot blame them and think that these sort of things come with time, with how everything is changing in the footy community here in Canada.
    I am not CanMNT at all. I am just a bandwagoner. If they go to the World Cup, or play in the Gold Cup or Octo, I will sympathize. However, I was not born here. My family isn't Canadian. Even if Canada were regular World Cup winners, I wouldn't support them over Peru, even though I love this country and think I am here for life now.
    I was born in Peru, my parents and grandparents were born in Peru, and everyone after that was born in the UK. So I have my pick, and also Peru's football history appealed a lot more.
    Now, if you were born in Canada, your parents were born in Canada, you don't have an excuse. That's the sort of people that get to me. None of this "my grandfather is Italian" shite. I know USA has had to deal with those sorts of people even when they were in World Cups.

    I haven't been through every post in this thread but I just wanted to point out that Laryea, Johnston and Borjan played every single minute of every single match.
    We can't count on the same situation with two away games (one at altitude in Mexico and then one in the heat and humidity in Jamaica) and Laryea on a yellow card.
    The 23 man squad with only 22 players for this match did work out but we will need more players for the next window.

    To be on the bandwagon is by definition to be a fan (just a latecomer). You're fan hermano and we are happy to have you 
    Many were born here. I spoke with two guys (early 20s?) That came down from Montreal for the match and were all in blue. Both were born in Canada and had never lived in El Salvador.

    We definitely want to keep growing this league and hope they eventually reach MLS, or slightly below level of attendances, but despite that I for one will miss the community this league has created.
    Pretty sure I was the only away fan again, just like in Winnipeg.

    I still wouldn't hit the panic button.
    The league has it's flaws with marketing, but honestly the attendances dropping after year 1 is normal. Happens around the world in weaker leagues. When a new stand is open in an expanded stadium, they flock in the first year and then attendances plummet afterwards.
    We just need to keep growing from this and not take rash decisions.
    Now FC Edmonton is concerning. With York we have definitely seen an increase in fans after the first year (despite the inflated 2019 average), Edmonton looks to have decreased on their already low fanbase.

    I'm going to play devils advocate. For a team with the quality of Honduras, these antics are what win games.
    I am South American and have seen Chile win the Copa America twice, who were a very dislikeable team with similar sort of provocations. If you're able to wind up the opponent with these antics and get away with it, it's a talent and almost a necessary one to win in the modern game.
    Canada will need to learn to not fall for these in order to survive against opposition like this. Players like Vidal, Gonzalo Jara, Luis Suarez, Walter Gargano, and a more familiar Jose Escalante have this talent, and it's part of why they are so successful for their leagues or their team. It unsettles the opposition.

    I was watching Peru bottle it, but I had this on in the background. Felt like a bit of a wake up call for some of the cheerleaders. Despite that, I do think the team were a bit nervous for their first game in the Octo. I don't expect them to win against the USA, but if they show a promising performance there, I won't be too worried.
    If there are dropped points vs El Salvador, or god forbid a bad performance and scraping a win, that's when I would start worrying.

    I remember when Piojo Herrera made similar claims on how the Canadian Police attacked him and his players. I just remember laughing, and telling my family that they would probably say "sorry" for arresting certain people and they would stop you on the road to have a conversation.
    In other words, they are seriously out of the loop on how unimportant football actually is in Canada.
