  1. I'd say Qatar has a headache or two to contend with: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017–19_Qatar_diplomatic_crisis Things could get mighty interesting depending on who qualifies, and who draws who in the tournament. Almost looks like some soccer fans taking a last-minute False Creek ferry ride to BC Place to catch an Israel vs. Iran soccer match, don't it?
  2. Updated 10 P.M., July 17, 2019: Goals / Player / Club 11 - Lucas Cavallini (Puebla FC) 10 - Scott Arfield (Rangers FC) 08 - Jonathan David (KAA Gent) 07 - Tristan Borges (Forge FC) 07 - Tosaint Ricketts (Suduva Marijampole) 06 - Tesho Akindele (Orlando City FC) 06 - Simeon Jackson (St. Mirren FC) 06 - Maksym Kowal (Canterbury United) 05 - Sergio Camargo (Cavalry FC)
  3. I just pray that all of these stadiums are terrorist-attack-proof. Hopefully, FIFA has addressed all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety of players, officials and fans, because the completed stadiums sure look like very susceptible targets for neighbouring enemies.
  4. I dare you to look your mother, wife and daughter straight in their eyes and tell them that men deserve more money than women for doing the same job because men are worth it and women aren't. Somehow, you just strike me as the kinda of guy who doesn't have the balls to do that! Anyhow, I'm done communicating with you, but please feel feel to keep on embarrassing yourself in a public forum!

  6. Obviously not as old as antiquated as your good ol' boys attitude is.
  7. So if we were to award a 2019 Canadian Soccer News Golden Mukluk award for the top Canadian goal scorer, who competed in a league that concluded in the calendar year 2019, and weighted all goals equally, then the current standings would be as follows: Goals / Player / Club 11 - Lucas Cavallini (Puebla FC) 10 - Scott Arfield (Rangers FC) 08 - Jonathan David (KAA Gent) 07 - Tosaint Ricketts (Suduva Marijampole) 06 - Tristan Borges (Forge FC) 06 - Tesho Akindele (Orlando City FC) 06 - Simeon Jackson (St. Mirren FC) 06 - Maksym Kowal (Canterbury United) 05 - Sergio Camargo (Cavalry FC)
  8. I guess have only 178 players as they have listed Marcel de Jong twice (#88 and #101)???

  12. Actually, if you read my proposal carefully and with an objective mind, then you will see that there is an option for the second round which you chose to conveniently ignore, or carelessly overlook: "Second round: Either 1 group of 6 countries playing home and away matches with the top 3 countries advancing to play Mexico, the United States and Costa Rica in the Hex. Or having 3 pairings playing home and away matches, with the 3 winners advancing to play Mexico, the United States and Costa Rica in the Hex." So yes, you are right, in that the first proposed option for the second round would not work for this World Cup because FIFA chose to dragged its heels in trying to figure out how best to deal with the Sepp-Blatter-fiasco-awarding of the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Thus, using the second option would reduce the number of matches from 28/30 to 20/22. Also, the proposed first round features groups comprised of 5 and 6 countries, in which again you chose to only look at the one-third of the proposal that suited your point-of-point. I find keeping an open mind to be most useful when trying to work with people in finding an alternative solutions to the not so very well thought out format presented by Victor Montagliani, which he intentionally kept under wraps as long as possible before disclosing it to the world, in order to guarantee that his Mickey-Mouse format would be the one that is going to be used. The reason I threw this proposal out there, is to see if there is a better alternative to what Mt. Vic has come up with. Sure my proposal needs to be worked on, or maybe even scrapped entirely for a better proposed format. I just wish that Mt. Vic would have had the wisdom and transparency to do the same.
  13. The 3 rankings above agree on the top 3 places in CONCACAF. 1 Mexico 2 United States 3 Costa Rica So why not have the remaining 32 countries compete in two rounds of qualifiers to end up with 3 additional countries for the HEX? First round: 4 groups of five countries, and 2 groups of 6 countries, playing home and away matches. The 6 group winners advancing to the second round. Second round: Either 1 group of 6 countries playing home and away matches with the top 3 countries advancing to play Mexico, the United States and Costa Rica in the Hex. Or having 3 pairings playing home and away matches, with the 3 winners advancing to play Mexico, the United States and Costa Rica in the Hex.
  14. Great! That makes it even more convoluted. Why would Victor Montagliani use the FIFA rankings, as that is the only one that does not have Canada in the top six? Is he being typically Canadian polite? Better yet, why doesn't he use the Voyageurs ranking, in which case Canada would knock Mexico off of its perch. FIFA: 1 Mexico - 1,557 2 United States - 1,495 3 Costa Rica - 1,453 4 Jamaica - 1,397 5 Honduras - 1,368 6 El Salvador - 1,342 CONCACAF: 1 Mexico - 2,009 2 United States - 1,879 3 Costa Rica - 1,776 4 Honduras - 1,641 5 Panama - 1,558 6 Canada - 1,502 ELO: 1 Mexico - 1886 2 United States - 1739 3 Costa Rica - 1685 4 Haiti - 1590 5 Hondurass - 1586 6 Canada - 1576
