    Short corners.

    I'm done with this crap for the night. We don't even want a result. :laugh:

    I do agree that Henry sucks.

    Honduras is going to win. Not a great result but not a deathblow to our chances.

    Assuming Mexico wins all their games, then Canada can advance simply by not losing either of their next two.

    I know what happened last time but they just cannot lose in Honduras.

    Honduras picked up an extra goal - that's huge. Puts our goal differential far lower.

    We need a result against Honduras. Simple as that. If we don't, we're done.

    Edgar and Arfield are both in our best XI. And they're not playing. Ledgerwood is also playing wing... what? Play him where Henry is and use Henry as a sub.

    Some sloppy work from the defenders on the second goal, but the worst offender was Will Johnson. Just stood around on the wrong side of the ball, daydreaming. You're away at Azteca, your first choice keeper is out of the game, you're moments away from the half; everyone behind the ball FFS!

    Great points about the stupid politics of the provincial organizations as well that's why I say it's one big clusterfukk...

    Henry is once again the worst, we are terrible tonight and all this will come down to the last game in Honduras...

    The only way it doesn't is if Mexico curbstomps them.

    Ps. So stupid that Hoilett is still playing

    Henry is played out of position and hasn't been playing great either. I don't get why floro keeps putting him in there.

    Pretty happy with this game, both goals were top class. Preventable but top notch from Mexico.

    We're going to get better, we've got some young attacking talent coming up, just going to need time.

    Who are the top prospects in EDM, Ottawa and Toronto FC's academies ?

    I know Vancouver has Davies, Chung. Montreal has Talba but idk is that's all ?

    Someone want to help make a list of best U-20 and U-18 players ?

    At the very least we have 3 potentially good keepers coming up.

    Arfield was hurt but hopefully he'll be ready to go in September.

    Get at least a draw in Honduras and win at home against El Salvador and that would be enough. I don't see Honduras winning in Mexico.

    So we need 4 pts...it's gonna be really tough. If we draw Honduras we would have the better head to head with them so a draw and a win over El Salvador and we go through. The reality though will probably be much simpler...

    Is the first tiebreaker head to head result between the teams? It should be but with concacaf you never know.

    No looks to be goal differential...so we need a win in Honduras to control our destiny on the last matchday...

    The easiest scenario is we win both our remaining games and we are through.

    A loss in Honduras and we are virtually eliminated (we would need massive help in the final game).

    A draw in Honduras is ok, as long as we don't lose to El Salvador at home and Honduras loses in Mexico.

    With a draw in Honduras we would depend on an already qualified Mexico helping us...that being Concacaf I wouldn't bet on that. So it's quite simple we need to win both games and we are in the final stage. Beating Honduras and El Salvador is very possible but then you look at our line up and our inept coaches...At least most of the guys should be in game shape in september.

    2-0 isn't as bad as I was expecting.

    Next crop of players has a lot of potential imo.

    u20 wise
    gk wise we are doing pretty good in Carducci and Pantemis.
    Defenders we have Tomori who is at Chelsea and is 18. Rest are on Canadian teams.
    Midfield is where things get better, though. We have Josh Doughty who is at man Utd. He is 18 so I guess he is in u18s and going to u21s in the fall. Marco Bustos from Vancouver is among the best players in the USL. Also a 15 year old from Vancouver was called up for this international break. The rest I don't know much about but they are playing for north American teams. Most are playing in Canada though.
    Striker wise we have Jordan Hamiton from Toronto and a guy playing in Scotland.

    U20s just beat Rashford and the English u20s 2-0 or 2-1.

    U18 wise we have a midfielder at fulham, another midfielder in a midtable team in the Eredivisie and a defender on a team that just got promoted to Bundesliga 1. All 3players are in their team's u18s/u21s. None of them are legit 1st team players yet.

    Also, Blasco another key player for WFC2 will probably play for Canada when he can. Since the chances of him getting called up to Spain is very low. He has youth experience in Barca, Cornella(they helped develop Alba), and Mallorca.

    GK wise we're kinda loaded:

    Crepeau
    Carducci
    Roberts
    Pantemis

    At CB i know Tomori is good, hopefully he stays Canadian, I don't know who else we have.

    Midfield, there's Davies, Chung, Ballou Talba, Bustos, Borges, Boakkai, Froese and I think a few more but of note is that I think all of these players have some attacking flair, something we as a nation have never had. There's also Laryea but I don't how good he is.

    Striker
    Larin still count ? Doughty ? Zanetta ? After that I don't know who else.

    I've heard that Joey Cowlishaw is amazing but he's 14.

    I asked about TFC's prospects on reddit and got these two good replies.

    2022/2026(if we don't host) is our best bets at going to the WC.

    Why doesn't Tiebert play more games for the NT? Him and Hutchinson would be a decent partnership in a 4231.

    Mexico is just a class above everyone in concacaf, and should beat anyone in this group at azteca whether they are motivated to do so or not.

    I have more faith in Mexico running the table on this group than Canada being able to score a goal.

    Remember, the only goal Canada has scored in this round was from a broken play. So that is the bigger question to me, and it has not changed from the gold cup time.... Can Canada score?

    I really like Edwards.

    Just heard about Ucello today.

    Tie Honduras away and beat El Salvador at home.

    That's what we need, and with our full strength squad we might be able to do it.

    Why is Edgar benched for Jakovic??!
