  1. The draw is less than a year away… Are goal is to get to a World Cup is it not? And if it is, once we get there, you want to give yourself the best chance to succeed. These are things the coaching staff are looking at (at least I hope so). I just don’t want to get there (yes I believe we can), and put in a group of death, and look at are World Ranking, and go FML if we just won 1-2 more Gold Cup games, we’d be in a group with a team that has a lower ranking than us.
  2. Just watching the pre game for Wales vs Turkey. They brought on John Hedman to congratulate him for moving on to the Oct. He brought up not having Millar, Hutch, and Arfield for these games. Made it sound like he’s not done with the national team.
  3. Just to keep in the back of your head. If Canada makes the World Cup, if we want to be in pot 3, and not pot 4 (easier draw), we need to go deep in this tournament to have any chance.
  4. If we win both games, how far would we move up the Fifa rankings roughly?
  5. Have you watched him in Korea? Still way too wild, and aggressive. I still can’t believe that people would want him in, in a do or die game. How many times does he need to show you he’s not up for it? What do they say about insanity? Doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results. FYI, I’d go Kennedy/Victoria against Aruba, and if all looks well (which it should), throw them against Suriname.
  6. When is FIFA doing the intercontinental draw for the 2022 World Cup? All I can find is at a later date.
  7. After his speed, what would you say is his next best attribute is? For me, I’d probably name 4 or 5 things before anything to do with his defending.
  8. I don’t know how many times I need to watch him for Bayern, or the Canada. He is not a fullback. Hasn’t played it his whole career until Bayern, and it shows. At best, he’s a wingback. He’s not a very good defender. He just relies on his speed. Doesn’t pick up his man well in the box, and the angles he takes to defend are weird. And that completely understandable, with how long he’s learned this position. But, he’s not being fully utilized. He has so much to bring to an attack, but doesn’t get to on that team. He needs to be freed.
  9. So it’s on the bad end. His season might be done. Will be close. He might be able to still play for Canada though, but it might be his first action in 2 months. Recovery time is usually 6-8 weeks.
  10. Apparently it’s sprained. Hopefully it’s just a minor sprain, and he only misses a couple of weeks.
  11. Whatever way you want to spin it. I’ll spin it another way. He leads Ligue 1 in goals since the new year. So he’s the most in form striker in France for the last 3 months. And honestly, if he took penalties, and didn’t get screwed out of a couple goals, he’d have 15/16 goals, with 7 to go. With the way that team plays, that’s pretty impressive actually.
  12. For the draw, the teams were allocated to four pots based on the FIFA World Rankings of October 2017. Pot one contained the hosts Russia (who were automatically assigned to position A1) and the best seven teams. Pot two contained the next best eight teams, and so on for pots three and four.[46] This was different from previous draws, when only pot one was based on FIFA rankings while the remaining pots were based on geographical considerations. However, teams from the same confederation still were not drawn against each other for the group stage, except that two UEFA teams could be in each gro
  13. What some people aren’t thinking about, is if we do make the World Cup, what would our ranking be for the draw. The difference between being in pot 3, and pot 4 could be a good Gold Cup, because of the value of the points (higher than WCQ points I believe). Being in pot 3, could give us a chance of maybe getting out the group. I don’t think our full A team will play, but won’t be surprised if 2-3 of our starters end up there, with a majority of our remaining of our bench/reserves. The rest will be filled with our best u-23’s, and players they would like
