The latest rumour is that CONCACAF had studied the possibility of playing the first of Honduras' games in Honduras, and then decided that was a no go...and then looked at the possibility of putting that game in the Caribbean...but has since decided (for rea$on$ unknown) that the game will be played at Toyota Stadium in Frisco Texas.

Horace Reid says the June 17th game is still planned to be be played in the Caribbean!

My take:

The June 17th is a Monday. Double-header group stage Gold Cup games mean that, during the week, the first game either starts too early or the second game finishes too late for casual fans and families with kids .

Therefore they will NOT make that match day a double-header.

It will be

Jamaica vs ??? in Kingston

at the same time as

Honduras plays ??? in the Dallas area.

CONCACAF can keep their promise of putting a crucial Gold Cup game in the Caribbean and not lose as much money because depending on the opponent they put against Honduras, they can likely fill Toyota Stadium in Texas.

Win$ for all.

I don't think we will know until after the French G game.

The Gold Cup groups will be announced on Wednesday, April 10th.

So when we end up in Group D with the Yanks, @socceronly can start planning a bus to Cleveland!  ;)

Expecting Canada to win the whole thing is still unrealistic because as improved as Canada is they're still several notches off from top Concacaf teams like Mexico and possibly CR. Not to mention Jamaica also has possible high quality young talents, e.g. Leon Bailey if he commits.

But we should be confident Canada's first XI is better than the USA's and should get further than the Yanks. Performing as well or better than the US should be par for the course. And no, the US is NOT winning the GC so please save your words for rebuttals.

Despite this fellows penchant for the ridiculous, it should be noted that, in an interview, Liam Millar basically said on watching the USA, "they're no better than we are".  We shall see, hopefully both Millar and Philly Cream Cheese will be vindicated.

I think that poster is just a USMNT fan who gets off on getting Canadian supporters to say nice things about the USMNT.

A troll in my books.

Tough to say - he could truly believe what he's spewing.  Just think of the anti-Canada people we deal with who will tell you that El Salvador or whoever are better than Canada just because.

True, but often Canada is closer to the level/achievements of an El Salvador/Guate/whoever than the US....  😭
