  1. I like that that they’ve done away with the embarrassing roster changes after the group stage rule. I like the draw as we’re garaunteed a game against Mexico and likely to get a game against Costa Rica. This will provide a good measuring stick for progress. Between the GC and Nations League our guys will get a run out against all three top teams. If we do well it’ll instill confidence in the new tactics and mental approach, if we get our asses handed to us, we’ll know that for all the talk not much has actually changed, and if we somehow manage to loose to Cuba/Martinique we all gotta start asking some serious questions.
  2. Reminds me more of Patrice Bernier. The 🐙 is one of a kind. 😉
  3. Totally agree. Nations league probably benefits us more than anyone else in CONCACAF. IMO This! Glad this group seems capable (on paper) of bagging some goals, but there’s no single player on our defense that I would describe as “solid”, and that’s a problem. Sure there’s some potential but not a single player that consistently owns a starting spot at decent enough level.
  4. Orlando City hold the contacts on precisely zero players. MLS is a single entity. MDS > Turkish media (IMO)
  5. Seems about as credible as any other unlinked, unsourced, no "on the record" quoting tweet. I'll personally be taking this with a large grain of salt.
  6. ... nice troll dude... until recently he lived in Vancouver. Pretty sure he wouldn't mind going back for a visit.
  7. Yeah fair points, and like you said hard to extract cause and effect. Highly possible that it also contributed to a hardcore inferiority complex, and very different times but don't think the original NASL needed euro leagues on network TV to bring in a golden (but unfortunately fleeting) age of soccer in North America.
  8. I get the importance of keeping soccer specific journalists gainfully employed, but at the same time I've been a watching CL and EPL for over 20 years now on these networks and I really can't say having network TV coverage has ever done anything positive for our domestic game. I like watching Euro footie as much as the next guy on here, but I'm personally not loosing any sleep over this... streaming services like DAZN are the way of the future, and who knows, maybe domestic soccer content will fill the network TV void. Rogers/Bell do own TFC after all.
  9. Yes similar situation that went our way. But if he'd been given a sniff by Scotland he definitely would have chose them... and I don't think anyone would've begrudged him for it. Ya win some ya loose some.
  10. I could see him moving to Pacific if the money is good enough, and a coaching job is a firm commitment, along with money and sponsorship of his coaching education, which IMO is almost as, if not more important.
  11. Personally still rate Vitoria and Jakovic at least as good, and probably better than Edgar, but all three are getting on. CB in general though is looking a lot better than it did a couple of years ago. Now we just need two or three of those guys to step up and stamp their name on the game sheet for club and country.
