    Brutal non-call at the end of that game. Borges was 100% fouled and there should have been a penalty to Forge.

    Earlier in the match he went down outside the box and the ref clearly thought he was trying to buy a call. I think that was in the back of his head and caused him to not make the call. If this was MLS VAR would've 100% overturned the call and awarded the penalty because it was a clear foul. Also was I the only one who thought the lighting of the stadium was awful? I was struggling to follow the action on the broadcast because it was so dark.

    VAR would have changed that for sure.

    Pacific is not good for TV - Camera angle is too low and yeah the lighting is terrible.

    So far we look dominant, another goal by David off of an amazing touch and then move. Now boys lets keep going and not screw up this 2 goal lead.

    How many times do you see a 6-0 game and are able to say it's nowhere near as close as the score would indicate?

    Best one ever was when Cuba played us in a WCQ in DC years back my friends did a bus trip to. Cory (who was the head of the ESC at the time) says "Watching Cuba is like watching Victory, only for real" (3 players defected before the match).

    Huge win. goal difference is going to matter in these games as we try and go up the FIFA ranks.

    Hopefully they can get a similar result in Cuba. We cannot afford to slip up against "lesser" opposition.

    81% possession with 10 shots, 1 goal from Davies and a big away win. I'll take it.



    Really hope they step up their level against the US.

    One of those nights where you take the win and move on. Davies with a great goal! Some key omissions to the squad which I hope is not the case when the team is back in mid October.

    We did get some help last night in the quest for top 6 in CONCACAF. The Cuba win isn't worth many points, but both Panama and El Salvador lost! Panama lost to Bermuda in Panama. Panama will have two games left against Mexico.

    El Salvador lost against the Dominican Republic.

    That match at home Oct 15 against the US is huge.

    Nothing official but I believe when the next rankings come out (soon in September), Canada will jump over Panama and be just a little bit behind El Salvador. Herdman was talking about the points/rankings in the press conference and they are very aware of how big the Oct 15 match is for the rankings.

    Going to be a massive game! I got my tickets, looking forward to the team playing such a meaningful game on home soil. I feel like it's been forever since that happened.

    Big game in CPL action tonight between FCED and Cavalry. Hoping a draw comes out of it for Forge's sake.

    Forge looking rather fatigued and slightly off today, they are turning it on now but they may be too late.

    Salvaged a draw. Probably our worst performance of the entire season in many ways, first 65 minutes were abysmal. Also sad to see such a small crowd. Obviously the weather wasn't good but I wish more people would show up because this is an excellent team and product that deserves everyone's support. Also when The Tim was built did they consider the wind pattern in positioning the stadium? Unless it was absolutely necessary turning it sideways from Ivor Wynne seems like it was a mistake because the winds off Lake Ontario play havoc with both soccer and football matches.

    Worst game easily. They could have gotten a third easy which is frustrating, would have been awesome to get 3.

    I don't know the reason why they switched the orientation of the field, I was always under the impression that one reason was to get a view of the escarpment.

    That makes sense. I believe it was supposed to originally be enclosed but budget concerns nixed that (much how Barclays was originally supposed to be built to be able to host hockey but costs killed that plan). I'm shocked they didn't do a study that would've shown open ends was a bad idea.

    Canada jumped up to the seventh spot in CONCACAF, one outside of the top 6.

    BMO on October 15th is shaping up to be a huge game!

    What is the significance of 6th seed?

    It gets you to the HEX where 3 of the top 6 have a chance to qualify directly to the World Cup.

    Did they change the format? I seem to remember the hex as the final stage for world cup qualification, and to get there, you you had to advance from another round Robin.
