    Who shut off for Altidore's goal off the corner? That was a free header and I thought it was Ghazal who was covering him. Who shut off for Giovinco's goal? Another free header in the box and I think Henry had followed his man to cover Osorio. The problem with the minutiae and narrow focus of this board is that the bigger picture gets missed.

    Confirmation bias, also called confirmatory bias or myside bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one's preexisting beliefs or hypotheses.
  3. What does this do to the chances of the US and Mexico? Will we see a B squad from them because their clubs won't release the big names (Weah, Sargent etc.) for that long? Who are we in danger of missing?

    Yeah, but you have to press it 6 times, once for each page. I broke an index finger doing that once.

    Just curious, but will you still feel the same way if Bayern plays him at LB? I'm not sure myself. I want him to play, so I'd prefer he get on the field in some way or another, but would not be too enthusiastic if that's how they use him.

    There were.

    By the by, there were rules at one point. I should know, I posted them. They're here. Decent starting point.

    Gather round children, it's El Hombre story time: I play on a men's team. By sheer talent alone, one guy is in the top two on our team. Unfortunately, he has no idea how to play with anyone else and is constantly condescending and poor for morale. The team is better when he is not around. That is a fact. Not a direct correlation, but hopefully illuminates the point that sheer talent alone does not win games. With every game Canada plays, someone will compare the leagues our guys play in to the leagues that our opponents play in. On the whole, a good argument can be (and usually is) made that "on paper, our team is better than theirs." Yet, we end up losing more games than we should. It is like someone else posted above: a lot of our Concacaf opponents have players that will bleed for their jersey. We don't always see the same intensity. For my money, a bandaged and bloodied Richard Hastings brought more to the 2007 Gold Cup success than most of our current players. Was he the most talented central defender at our disposal at that time? No. But he led that team. Almost to the finals.

    So: 1) Say something in an interview: "That's better dealt with man to man and not in the press. Herdman out!" 2) Release a squad with little explanation: "Why is X missing? He has no clue about selections! Herdman out!" Damned if he says something, damned if he says nothing. Why hide it? Put these guys on notice. No one walks into this team any more. If they don't really care, then this won't bother them. If they do, this will light a fire. Start by building a mentality of pride. (All this to say: how many players will actually hear the highlights of an interview of a Can Champ game streamed only on canadasoccer.com).

    He most definitely did.

    Holy shit. It's hard not to get on board with this guy when you listen to the interview he gave with Nigel Reed in the second half of the Fury TFC game. When he started talking about having pride in the shirt and that players that don't will be left off the team sheet, I almost got teary eyed. God damn that was nice to hear.

    Yes. Yes.
  14. We should use the 2019 gold cup to cap tie Gianni Patino. I saw a youtube clip of him and he is hot stuff. Gonna be a real player. He signed with Barcelona, are we going to let him get away too?
