Beer and Footy's Achievements

  1. What else is anyone talking about? THAT GOAL! What is this sensation I am feeling? I think it's called hope? https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/9374153
  2. Starting a thread to talk about the new generation of fans inspired by this team and it's exciting new style. Been talking with Alejandro about his idea of El Equipo para Todos - a Team for Everyone representing a country where everyone is from somewhere else. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8224730 - shared in the Podcast forum and will drop new episodes there. Wanted to create a thread to talk about stories like Alejandro's, who is from South America but cheers for Canada over his native country and is passionate about the team because it represents stories like an Alphonso Davies, who first came to this country as a refugee and now returns as an international superstar and European Champion. Who else has seen examples of Canada being first choice for soccer supporters for a change? Where are fans on this forum from? Who else do you cheer for?
  3. New episode recaps That Thursday double-header, previews the Sunday double header and talks about Los Equipo para Todos - The Team for Everyone, this Canadian team inspiring a new generation of fans. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8224730
  4. An all Out Attack - 3-2-5 going forward today. As discussed on the new podcast episode: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8224730 Davies -------Cavallini----------Laryea -------Millar----------Corbeanu------- ---------Kaye------Eustaquio------ Miller-----------Ferreira----------Sturing ---------------St.Clair------------------
  5. At the 33:59 of this episode of Beer and Footy I am asked by my Eurosnob friends about Canada's WCQ program. Actually the question is "Does Canada even have any WCQ games coming up?" https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8192623 And then they laugh at my fears of Bermuda and Suriname. Wanted to share here with an audience that understands.
  6. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8192623 Beer and Footy panel is back together to catch up on the world of footy. Talking Champions League Draw, Jose Mourinho and what makes a manager a great manager. They are not Euro snobs but there is a hilarious segment where someone asks "does Canada have WCQ games this month?" and I freak out trying to explain why I'm scared of Suriname.
  7. Wanted to point out that Peter Galindo picked the same starting XI as mi amigo Alejandro @craquehandro We project the starting rosters here https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8132730 Here is Peter's preview of the tournament and his starting lineup. https://www.sportsnet.ca/soccer/article/will-canadas-men-overcome-odds-qualify-tokyo-olympics/
  8. Olympic Roster Discussion this week on the Beer and Footy Podcast: The Despair and The Dream https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8132730 WARNING: Contains reference to recent traumatic events which may cause flashbacks in long time Canadian soccer fans Trying to make the best of this group of players: Alejandro's Team: 4-2-3-1 -----------Brym----- Twardek-----Dias---Buchanan- ----Baldisimo-- Metcalfe----- Bassong------------Brault-Guillard ---Cornelius------TMG----- -----------Pantemis--------- Kyle's Team: 4-3-3 -----Brym---Bair---Ballou-------- Raposo---------------Dias--- ---------Baldisimo------ Twardek-------------Buchanan ----Cornelius--Montgomery--- ----------Noguiera----------
  9. Came up with a new idea for a chant, inspired by Alenjandro's roster ideas for WCQ on the podcast: https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8088719 It's a nervous time for me, having suffered through the decades, but my new friend Alejandro @craquehandro gives me new hope. Here's to some day soon singing this in a stadium, enjoying another beatdown of a rival on our way to the top of the OCTO! Happy Days Canada - call and response to the tune of the "Happy Days" Theme Songhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slvGKU7HF6MCall Response Phonzie! Richie! - Happy DaysAttiba! Scotty- Happy DaysDavid! Larin! - Happy DaysTogether -What a Team,! It's a Dream! Scoring More Goals Than You!! Good Bye Gray Skies, Hello Blue. We're Going to the World Cup in 22! Yours and Mine Happy Days
  10. Beer and Footy is back on the air! https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/8088719 Two Canadian Soccer fans from different generations come together to talk about this most exciting potential team going into WCQ that also has the potential to be the most disappointing, through no fault of the players. Planning to do another one to review the Olympic roster, if you'd like to be a guest send me a message.
  11. This episode of Beer and Footy takes a Dutch perspective on recent events. Starts with some Davis chat and then veers all over the map, landing in Curacao and Surinam. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/5280810 Not to worry Canada, the verdict on Guus Hiddink is in our favour.
  12. Finally, got to prove my theory that Footy Chat sounds better with a Scots' Accent and creates instant credibility. Ever since the days of Graeme Leggat and Soccer Saturday on TSN if you don't have a brogue no one takes you seriously. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/4796009 Have a listen, tell me it doesn't seem like someone from Glasgow can talk any kind of rubbish and make it seem interesting.
  13. On the Beer and Footy Podcast this week we talk about the Canada '26 team and what it could look like. Special guest Alejandro, long time Forum member. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/4733924
  14. New Podcast Episode, we interview John DeBenedictis of NSCAC and talk about Canada from '86 to '26, what's been missing and what the future of coaching needs to look like. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/4606757 Next week we talk about young players coming through and who to look for in "26.
  15. We have a chat about Phonzie on the last episode of the Podcast. "Has the potential to be one of the best in the world!" is the starting point and then it spirals upward from there despite my best efforts to keep it under control. https://www.buzzsprout.com/1072288/4515020
