    Didn't understand Vanney's 2nd & 3rd subs in this match. Down a goal so we take off Osorio for Ashtone Morgan? Not sure if he was supposed to play behind Morrow, in front of him, next to him or what.
    And that's the 2nd game in a row where, needing a goal, we brought on Akinola for more offensive who was completely ineffective as a sub. I should hope given that Hamilton has 2 goals in 3 games this year that he gets the next chance to come off the bench instead of Akinola, though he wasn't even dressed for this one. Of the players who were dressed, in a game like that where it's pretty predictable that we'll be sending balls into the box from deep, why wouldn't you go with Boyd as the aerial threat? If you aren't going to play him in situations like this, I'm not sure what he's doing on the team, you might as well bring Ricketts back.

    He has 1 goal and what 3 or 4 assist this year? A point a game is pretty solid for a TAM player. Hes also not playing where he should be so be patient. He earned that pay raise last season, at least give him a full season before you say he is overpaid.

    The CPL is as much a Canada Soccer venture as a private enterprise, or feels like it at least so if these fixtures get pointed in the general direction of CPL venues I wouldn't be surprised. 
    BMO Field is, and should be, the hands down favourate regardless.  I actually quite like Saputo Stadium and if CPL is exploring opportunities in Montreal...
    Vancouver is out.  No.  If the 'Caps will put up with that surface God Bless 'em but until BC Place takes their footie responsibilities a little more seriously they shouldn't be allowed to abuse our National Team players anymore.  Somebody tell me a re-lay is scheduled for sooner rather than later.  Please.

    "Balance of probabilities" haha, above 51% chance. 
    UEFA nations league used that tiebreaker format and we have the identical structured tournament. 
    UEFA & CONCACAF are both subsidiaries of FIFA.
    As much as CONCACAF has done some strange things, I can't see our Nations League A structure not being identical to UEFA's.

    i have an idea: why doesn't the CSA ask the players and Herdman where they want to play the US that they feel gives them the best chance to win?

    It would be great to build a Canada-US rivalry.  Of course right now, they don't see us as anything more than a training session.   Hopefully this is the year we surprise them!

    Im not saying that. Im just saying there will be huge demand for the game because Cascadian American fans feel they dont get many national team games. Luckily BC always supports our national team. 17k to watch FG with zero away support.
     
    Im saying BC Place would be rocking with 55k people jammed in there. It would be an absolute spectacle 
     
    30k at BMO wrapped in parka jackets and scarfs just doesnt compare. Sorry
     
    Besides if people in Toronto want to watch Americans play football they just have to go to a TFC game

In total I have seen the MNT play 29 times most matches at Varsity, many at BMO and once in Cuba! I've seen us play Jamaica and Costa Rica 4 times each!

    They are not that big.  TH - 23K,  Winterpeg 33k,  
    With BMO at 30K,  I would opt for grass and the place the players want to play. 
    If it is a straight cash grab, play the US in Vancouver.
