Complete bullshit. Only legitimate explanation is injury but why do I think that is not the case. Solid road game without major stars. Win one game at home and now back to the final. Hurts not getting the away goal but with a full team next week I would hope we dominate from the word go and put Columbus on the road to Austin.
Osorio and Ricketts go 90 and Raheem Edwards plays about 12 (if you include injury time) as TFC draw 0-0 on the road in leg 1 vs Columbus. Edwards made a game saving save of a shot from one of TFC's many late game suicidal giveaways by the likes of Moor, Cooper and Bradley - can't remember who it was on that occasion. I know TFC were missing their star strikers but I was disappointed that they didn't even try to get that away goal
Let's hope Jordan moves on to a team that will give him a chance. Ridiculous that a guy who can't use his head at 6'5 and doesn't score goes to the bench of a game when your two best strikers are out and you have a guy who has scored in the league when given the opportunity.
Im calling Cloverdale fairgounds in a pop up style stadium to be ready to go in 19 (similar to Saskatoon) with an eye on DT with a larger permanent home potentially with Lions playing there eventually as well
I imagine half the point of the seeding tournament is to seed to non-FIFA teams in with the FIFA teams because there's no other way to split all 41 up fairly. But yeah, I imagine whatever they do it'll just be a single group stage.
That said, I'll note that assuming Guatemala remain banned, if CONCACAF were to split the LoN divisions up 20-10-10 they could just do 10 groups of 4 with a double round-robin and no playoffs required, which would be incredibly elegant, although I doubt it would happen due to the number of lopsided matches involved.
Although like I said before, I reckon that some smaller nations might not bother with the seeding tournament and will go straight to D3 instead, so we could be dealing with fewer than 40 teams.
