    Many of us, myself included were quite critical of him on here and in the end it was justified because he never produced when given the chances! It was not really personal for me, my issue was more with Vanney playing him ahead of Canadians, I wish him the best of luck wherever he ends up, he has had some horrific injuries to overcome!

    How are teams acquiring players?

    I would think this would mostly be players in pro leagues around the world who will be out of contract/released by club or those under contract who have expressed interest in a move home!

    2026 WC Bid?

    I hope they clear up the automatic qualification issue sooner rather than later, I'm getting tired of listening to sportscasters with little interest in soccer pointing out that we may not be participating in our own tournament!

    What are your concerns, no automatic place?

    I have been ok with the names of the revealed clubs so far, I don't like Founders either, if it happens I'll still be a big supporter though!

    2026 WC Bid?

    He used to be featured frequently on the local tv station (CHCH) for his business opinions and analyses, I found out after he was a soccer fan, in the last few years we got to see he is very involved and passionate about the game, great work from him and his team and as he says in the interview, "now the real work begins"!

    2026 WC Bid?

    It really is worth giving this a listen, some real excitement from Nick after the FIFA decision, he feels Davies helped sway the vote and expects us to get automatic qualification but we probably won't know for at least 2 years!

    2026 WC Bid?

    How about this scenario: No automatic qualification, Montreal hosts a match in their way over budget refurbished stadium with our tax $$$, a match with Honduras, who had eliminated us on another corrupt penalty decision in the heat vs Ivory Coast featuring Ballou Tabla? Man so many years of following Canadian soccer has made me quite bitter and broken!😬

    2026 WC Bid?

    That about sums up my views as well! I'm sure once automatic participation is confirmed, if it is, I will be much more positive about this, let's see what happens!

    2026 WC Bid?

    As I said in my post it's the emotion of politics, if we win this bid I will support the team as always, if I'm still able in 8 years time! 😀I was more than happy in 94 to go to a bunch of games in the US and whatever the dynamics or reasons of this bid an argument is hard to make against us playing World Cup matches on home soil (if an automatic place is granted)! The question I ask is why is there not more excitement on the eve of the vote?

    2026 WC Bid?

    Tomorrow we find out the fate of this "unified" bid apparently! Not much discussion on here, has everyone resigned themselves to it not working out for us? I shouldn't react emotionally to politics but after the weekend I really don't want us to prop up a bid for our neighbours to the south by hosting a handful of matches to make it look like a unified bid!
  14. It was an entertaining match, perhaps it lacked the importance that a 5 goal match could be, both sides showed some qualities, there were some big errors defensively on most of the goals! The crowd in Hamilton was great, I look forward to having our CanPL team playing matches here and the CSA has to regard Hamilton as a good host for National Team games! Thanks to all who visited from all parts of the country, it was great to meet up with you all!
  15. It was great to see you again, thanks for coming to visit us in The Hammer! Cheers my friend!
