    The lack of friendlies is mostly on the CSA but JH was quote saying something like "We won't be playing games apart from the NLQ and that's it". He's the MNT head coach and he just acts like this is normal. Herdman is in a better position than you and me to put pressure on the CSA to find a way to play maybe one or two friendlies, but he isn't doing it. For this, I think he's partly to blame. I would expect him to use the media to make it known that he isn't satisfied with just playing Dominica and co, that he needs better games to be able to evaluate his players.

    Herdman new head coach

    You are supposed to be celebrating the fantastic string of results we had in the last 12 months. Perfect record at home, away and at neutral sites, no goal allowed at home, away and at neutral sites, exciting team play against USVI, one goal away from a home record, a shutout win in Basseterre, better known as the "San Pedro Sula of the Caribbean".

    I think we should have a thread dedicated to the voting and have another one for people who want to discuss their opinion regarding their choices and who disagree with others. The ImpactSoccer forum have something similar with a specific thread for a MOTM vote after each game and a general thread for discussion purposes regarding the MOTM.

    Emile Legault

    Poor positioning by Legault on that team picture...That's clearly the Herdman effect, now 5'5 guys have the confidence to show up on the back row of a starting 11 pic.

    IMO, the opponents and the way we play are really important when assessing JH performance. That apply for the GC and the Nations League. I can see some scenarios where we are relegated to League B and could still considered our performance as satisfactory: For example, a group with Mexico and Honduras where we finish 3rd only based on GD and we got some interesting results along the way. I could also picture some scenarios where a GC quaterfinas is deemed a failure because we lose to an average opponent at that stage.

    Suggested 2022 WCQ Formats

    This format looks like the one we saw in the U20 Championship. Wouldn’t be surprise if the U20 was a test. If it was, I hope it failed considering Jamaica went out despite being undefeated and having scored a lot of goals.

    I don’t think we ve read the same thing. Most criticism are about the lack of cohesion and organization of the team yesterday. From what I ve seen, we were far from convincing in that regard. The win is nice but the way we played, with a full squad, was very average at best. That was our first real test and while it wasn’t a failure, it wasn’t a strong showing that could be an indication that we are about to experience some positive changes.

    The Importance of Alphonso Davies

    Penalty kicks aside, did he ever scored a FK goal for Canada? I ask because I don't remember him doing so but I might have forgotten one or two.

    But Herdman had the team practicing on a bumpy pitch, which was clearly a great piece of "coaching mastery" and should be enough for you to erase that poor performance out of your memory...

    Cyle Larin

    Poor play aside (he lost the ball intially), I thought this was a good foul since SKN had a good chance at a counter attack. In the last 10 minutes of a game you are winning 1-0, this is a good tactical foul IMO since it allowed the team a few seconds to reset. But yes, his overall play isn't that good but I really don't think it's on the MLS only. Cyle has to take responsability for his poor play, we all know he has the talent to play at a higher level than MLS.

    General - CONCACAF Nations League

    On the CONCACAF site it says the game is currently in the 77th minute. So, yes still playing.

    Looking at this list, I'm wondering if you should include the possibility of having 50 years old Pat Onstad coming out of retirement to start the GC in case Borjan isn't available...
  15. A good thing everyone forgot we were playing St Kitts & Nevis because we are currently loosing 2-0 after 40 min in the first half..... El Hombre beat me to it....
