  1. Put the hammer down. Our best lineup can have several variations. Insert Larin for Cavallini, switch out a centre back, start Osorio instead of Hutchinson, etc. Several lineups can still be our A squad, that shows our depth. There’s no reason why we can’t draw México. Even if we finish second, there’s no guarantee Costa Rica win their group, Haiti could and we draw them in the quarters. This year will be exciting with the schedule so far, I just want some friendlies in June and I’ll be on cloud 9!
  2. It’s crazy how concacaf made a group of Jamaica, El Salvador, Honduras and curaçao and another with both Nicaragua and Bermuda. But if you think of it the so called group of death has the fewest number of nations league A teams in it versus any other gold cup group.
  3. Yeah that 2000 gold cup victory was a very small blip on the radar because we crashed out of Korea/japan qualifying so quickly.
  4. Quoting a wiki entry is not confirmation.
  5. If you want to predict the future, look at the past. There’s only ever 2 games per window. Either we will play twice in 2 windows or twice in one window and once in the other two.

    This is the greatest response of all time, thank you.
  7. Remember we called our best vs the Virgin Islands, you bet were calling the best for Cuba.
  8. I just want to go on the record and state the obvious. I friggin love this shit. Talk of competitive games that aren’t World Cup qualifying games, gold cup games too! We may be playing up to 10 competitive games this year! Add a few friendlies and........ OH MY GOD!
  9. So who does everybody want? If we get Bermuda or Cuba, while we would most likely get 6 points, so will the pot 1 team. Part of me wants Honduras so we can finally go down there and spank them. Another part of me wants the US, for the exact same reason lol. I feel like because there’s only 4 games it will come down to whether or not we can get an away result vs the pot 1 team.
  10. With everyone being in a good mood I thought I would start this poll!
  11. It’s crazy that Guyana made the gold cup because Barbados fielded and ineligible player.. their 2-2 tie turned into a 3-0 win.
  12. Vic was on the very first podcast by Steven Caldwell and kristian jack a few weeks ago. He said the results of nations league will determine seeding for the World Cup draw.
  13. I’ll bite. I’ll tell you what the problem was back in 2000, I remember it fondly. We rolled out a steel drum band and the red carpet for Trinidad and basically gave them an extra home game. Then Dwight Yorke showed up and scored. We lost 2-0 that game and at Azteca. We couldn’t win in Panama (0-0 draw) and tied Mexico at a cold varsity 0-0 after Corazzin hit the post but by then we were already out. The game before in Trinidad we choked and lost 4-0. It comes down to away games and a lack of talent. We won with holger because of sound defence and the counter (see Richard Hastings). Even though I’ve been beat down many times, we have more talent and frankly a more intimidating home atmosphere than we had before.
  14. Hutch has 80 caps, nine behind de Guzman. Is the caps record something he has eyes on? I know he said he will play until the gold cup and if that’s what ends up happening he would be a few appearances short. It would be nice to see a guy like him stick around until the fall and nations league to maybe hit 90!
  15. The one time, ONE TIME we really feel like we have a team. Like we can qualify by kicking down the front door and announcing our presence on the world stage and I hear they are seriously considering making 2022 48 teams and also - what I consider to be more detrimental- people want to merge qualifying with CONMEBOL?!?! What the hell. We need to legitimately qualify before 2026, I just feel like people will dismiss us if they add 16 teams for 2022 and say we wouldn’t have qualified otherwise.
  16. I agree 100%. Those front 6 all have to start and will start and to me that’s the best way to sort it out formation wise.
  17. Borjan godinho——Henry—- Cornelius—- adekugbe davies—- Hutchinson—- Arfield — hoilett ———— David ——— —— cavallini ——
  18. Let just remember, French Guiana lost to st Vincent at home in October.
  19. From watching the interview I get the impression that he wanted to go back to England no matter what. I feel like his goal is to impress enough at Hartlepool that league one teams or higher come calling. CPL teams probably did inquire and he said just that.

    League Trophy

    Stanley Cup, grey cup, voyageurs cup. It needs to be a cup with no corporate name
  21. Imagine with this formation we get a game vs the US in nations league THIS YEAR?!? Buckle up!
  22. Hoilett on one side, Davies on the other with Arfield, Hutchinson (until the gold cup), David and Cavallini as the front 6 makes me all tingly inside.
  23. I just hope the csa and their twitter account provides exactly 50/50 coverage 🙄
