    The BEST roster we could ask for. Period.

    For anyone who's been ripping on Herdman, this squad should cause you to give your head a shake. Canada needs to dominate to ensure their Gold Cup qualification is secured, and this roster reflects that. This squad contains arguably our best 11, with lots of opportunities to cap tie promising U23 players. And if you want pride in the maple leaf, note that Will Johnson and his "I don't like playing at the Gold Cup" attitude is not in the squad. Would have liked to see Stephen Eustaquio in the squad, but I think Zambrano fucked that up royally.

    I don’t watch Montreal very often, so I just had to look up some numbers for Amarikwa, Mancosu, and AJH. Here is what I learned. AJH scored 9 goals last season in just over 1100 minutes. Amarikwa’s best season was 8 goals in just over 2500 minutes, which is 400 more minutes than AJH has played in his entire career. Mancosu’s best season was 6 goals last season in just over 1700 minutes. For career numbers its 24 goals in 9217 minutes over 10 seasons for Amarikwa. 12 goals in 3592 minutes over 3 seasons for Mancosu. And 12 goals in 2166 minutes for AJH over 5 seasons. AJH has scored 2 goals this season in 570 minutes compared to 0 for Amarikwa in 2017 and 2018 in 515 minutes. The year before, in 2016 Amarikwa needed 1699 minutes to scrounge up 3 goals. Mancosu has scored one more goal than AJH this year with almost twice as many minutes played as AJH. So yeah, play AJH!!!

    Well I can only assume if we had 11 Humes we would have won in 2012 in Honduras 11-8 instead of losing 8-1.

    I imagine Kaye would likely have been called if he weren't injured. Likely on place of Chapman or Teibert.

    WOW. SO PUMPED! PROPS GUYS & HERDMAN, not being cynical, thank you to everyone who accepted the call, that's what I'm effing talking about! Even if it vs a minnow, this is an excellent precedent. Never been this excited. Should be a great way to build team morale, while building and creating a positive momentum.

    Ayo Akinola

    I would gladly take a team full of guys like Ian Hume - full of heart, pride and dedication to his country (even though he lived most of his life outside it). But when he brought it to the team, everything was left on the pitch. Blood, sweat and tears. These guys like Jono DeGuzman who stayed on the fence are all the same. It's all about them and their careers - not about their country and it shows. Hoilett was this way for years and although hopeful, I always felt like he would choose England or Jamaica - although maybe he never got the chance. Since he showed his intention to play with Canada, he has been a great talent and I believe a strong voice for the team. Canada should never feel 2nd best. When you see Mexican players at the beginning of a match with their hand at their heart and singing their national anthem proudly, it far exceeds the level of pride for players in our country. IMO, This has to change. As far as I'm concerned, guys like Akinola need a slap in the face. I don't give a crap how many goals you score if it's all about you. I would rather him score fewer goals if he makes it a better team - one that can play at the highest level where he and his teammates are proud to play for their country.

    In the 18 man squad in a HUGE 2nd leg Away Europa League Match vs Bordeaux 0-0 aggregate. I expect him to be a 2nd half sub and do what he does best.

    Larin starts for Besiktas against Partizan. Plays a simple pass to set up the second goal. Presently 2-0

    Considering how attack heavy the roster is, I hope Herman is willing to experiment the formations. Here's my line up: At some point the subs should be: David in for Cavallini or Larin Millar in for Hoilett (Hoilett is coming off an injury, if he isn't healthy Millar should start) Brault Guillard in for Henry or even Davies. In this way we cap tie three important players, while still having our best players out there.

    I know what you are saying, but it is still too flat, the stands have to be steeper, and the corners filled. These square stands: that is a throwback to an era of rudimentary engineering. Can anyone seriously argue that curving a corner is so difficult? This is where I am going to watch Ballou play for Barça B this Saturday, built 35 years ago. Is this difficult architecture (and I admit that I do not like the short lower tier)?

    Tesho Akindele

    Except Teibert has played 7 times more minutes than Tesho, and started 6 of the last 7 games... He's very much an integral piece of Vancouver's squad.

    Probably closer to people being used to getting a heavy discount on the cheapest seats at BMO not being in touch in what the market is really like, like people in rent controlled apartments York9 is competing primarily for new entries to the season ticket holder market. To do that with TFC is a $750 to $900 dollar commitment per seat at TFC right now for low end seats. York9 certainly seems to be priced competitively compared to that York's pricing doesn't look amazing for longtime TFC ticket holders thinking about switching, especially those in the south end, but realistically that's probably only a couple dozen people. York shouldn't be creating their pricing model on that minority

    First time since Lars in 2007 that a Canadian keeper is a team's definitive starter in Champions League. How about that.

    RB Salzburg were up 2-0 with 67% possession and 11 shots on goal and Red Star Belgrade managed to score two in the last 30 minutes of the game and win on Away goals Borjan has to be congratulated for his performance, a clutch 9 saves and some of them were crucial for the victory, what a way to end the CL Play-offs A Canadian in the most prestigious tournament this year!

    Goal differential legit matters? YUP. Biggest win Unofficial: Canada 7–0 United States (St. Louis, United States; November 16, 1904) Official: Canada 7–0 Saint Lucia (Gros Islet, St. Lucia; October 7, 2011) Herdman's first official match (non-friendly)...... #NewNationalRecord #ALLEZLESROUGES I HOPE EVERY ONE SEES THIS POST!

    We could very well stick to our usual 4-5-1/4-3-3 alignment. I just thought it was worth noting that playing intra-squad games (as The Beaver noted above) might suggest otherwise. I'm not in a position to comment on deJong's suitability to play in a 3-back defense (or Hoilett's ability to cover defensively in his spot either) but do know that James played on the right in a 3-back defense a fair bit last year in Hungary. Cheers!

    Great line up. We just need to go out there and crush them. No 1-0 results. CRUSH THEM. Send a message that Canadians aren't playing nice any more.

    Isn't it just based on people signing up that have Twitter? These teams could have a bunch more memberships afterwards, but the people don't have twitter

    Very nice to have a strong squad with our best players there. But it's sad this strong squad will only be used for one game against the USVI. A friendly should've arranged IMO.

    I would've liked to see Petrasso or Adekugbe over Akindele for more full back depth but otherwise this squad is perfect.

    No issues with the roster management considering a mid-week, non conference road match was always going to be the least important of the nine remaining. Same target as before: 12 points from the next 15 (aka win the home matches) and then see what you need to do in DC/Montreal.

    That’s funny because after the CPL trial video when Brennan said “there will be 8 coaches watching” I laughed out loud thinking he all but confirmed Ottawa (again). Maybe Brennan is just completely lost in all this..

    If they really are serious fans and not just trouble makers, then IMO they should join/start another group to support York 9, rather than bring the baggage their group name would come with.
