Difference is the CSA is functional, well organized, and impartial. The USSF is a bunch of goons using soccer as an excuse to pocket profits.

Thank heavens for Montagliani.

It's "know thy enemy" time

Looking at his resume... not a great choice. I think we're entering the USMNT decline 

How is his resume not adequate to what is leading us?

He failed in Swedish 2nd division and is a mediocre MLS coach with a mediocre franchise (please NEVER use MLS and club in the same sentence) and the fact it took over a year to find this scrub is an indictment of the USSF. The CSA never was this dysfunctional even at its worst. 

Compare him to Herdman, who successfully built a program from the ground up and has a vision and benchmarks on where he wants Canada to be.

So when was the last time the CSA held a fake election, ignored all problems, been really opaque towards fans, or go over a year w/o a coach for the CANMNT? Or does the CSA have a conflict of interest with something like SUM or hire people based on nepotism?

It's not. Some people here are annoyingly eager to shit on the USMNT at all times, even to the detriment of discussing Canada (the primary purpose of this board).

That's because Canada is still putting teams into US sanctioned leagues and refuse to pull out of MLS. Reminding Canadian fans that Canada is better than the US will change their minds.

I think we got a great chance of winning. Mexico normally doesn’t bring their best squad. If Canada brings everyone we are going to be dangerous ! 

To be completely honest, Canada is far from a strongly run federation.  From the National program through to provincial, regional  and local programs.  I know the systems fairly well and most people would be surprised at the dysfunction of Canadian soccer.  Without going into details, I think it is fair to say that most of us are confident that we are seeing a bit of a turnaround in recent years.  However, lets not forget how terribly handled the release of Zambrano was.  He did an excellent job while in charge and had excellent plans and ideas for development.

Shit on the US? Dont make me repost those ESPN FC videos where analysts said they weren't that good or used "mediocre" as well.

It's EQUALLY annoying to see posts where some put that team on some kind of unattainable pedestal.

I'll give the US that they have more depth.

Our best starting XI can compete with theirs but if our A team gets plague with injuries, than we're in trouble. I always said that. I mean, I have watched their friendlies... have you? It was eerily bad... Should be better under the new coach with a coherent vision...but by how? Remains to be seen.

I was pointing out in a "Gold Cup" thread that the US aren't that much more better than us coaching wise.

As for discussing Canada, that's all I do, really

The depth advantage is only temporary. Once the CPL launches Canada will have the advantage of a proper league and soccer pyramid. And you can say the average Canadian player is more technically skilled than American ones and Canadians will continue to improve.

Canada can dominate the US in hockey and rugby, so what's different about soccer?

No he's not, you see him coming from a mile away. His game is weak.

I hope him and Robert never meet. The two would keep going in circles until the servers of this site wouldn’t be able to handle it anymore. The USSF is the worst ever! No, the CSA is the worst ever! MLS is doomed to fail! No CPL is doomed to fail!

Luckily Robert only posts in his own threads, so if they do meet it will likely be in a ridiculous thread that we can all safely ignore.

Sure.

I'll let you honestly assess which of those two things are happening more on this forum.

Berhalter is a good selection, I was hoping the Whitecaps would have gone after him if things would have fell differently with his job and dos Santos.

You want someone who was fired by Hammarby for lack of offence? Isn't this what people complained about Robbo?

Sir, you and 300 million of your compatriots have some serious homework to do on the meaning of facts. Isn't there an NRA forum you could be trolling instead?  I hear that #trump on Twitter has some spirited "debate"...

Or a Survivor mechanism where you could be voted off the Island.

-----------------------------------------

EDIT:  For the record, I have often wondered about this sort of mechanism.  It would have to be bully-proofed so that you couldn't arbitrarily mean-girl someone off the site.  Maybe a really high threshold of support required to get the boot.  Another idea was allowing the OP of a thread to block certain people from posting on it.  I mainly thought of this when wading through the naysayers constant babbling in the CPL threads.  Maybe Jamie's idea of a controlled membership section solves that.

Back to your regularly scheduled programming...
