We have 3 years to find and groom 2 defenders. It all starts from there.

Vitoria was much more solid when he came in.

Something tells me Herdman is on the way out possibly.
Agreed 100% on Vitoria.

What makes you lean towards Herdman no longer involved in the program?

Herdman was outcoached in Qatar and now fully exposed against USA. He needs to go now. The sooner the better.
By the way, with this roster, Canada would qualify for WC in Qatar even without the coach.

The only argument against moving on from Herdman is what kind of replacement would be attracted/chosen by an inept national association.

Also instead of Phil fcuking Neville, maybe one of the assistant hires should have been someone who can fine tune the team on set pieces... just saying

That's pretty harsh. It's not like Canada was consistently landing in finals before, never mind winning them.

Online rumour so take it for what it's worth but I'm hearing BJ Callaghan is available.

I think the concern is that when interviewed post match he claimed they played well. Maybe after reflection and thorough analysis he will see that's not the case and look to make improvements, but it certainly feels like in Qatar and this match he got things wrong in team selection and preparation.

No one thing that makes me think he is gonna move on...

But the biggest thing is his open criticism of Canada soccer. For sure he makes some valid point but he is really throwing it out there in the media and doesnt strike me as someone who may stay much longer.

As well after the game KJ from one soccer really went after him and you wonder if something is going on behind the scenes.

One thing I think he got wrong last game and this is just my thought...

He should have went with four in the back and dropped Laryea to right back. Have Tajon start on the wing and drop Osorio out of the starting lineup.

He has his reasons for the formation and lineup he went with but not gonna lie when I saw Tajon on the bench and the formation he went with it just didnt make sense to me.

Was hoping to be proven wrong.

Disappointed.

Bad first goal that we never recovered from.

I'm not a huge fan of Gio Reyna and we made him look really, really good.

Ultimately its always down to the players but it looks like Herdman may have missed the mark on a couple things last night....

I wonder when the "equal pay" topic is going to "intersect" with Herdman's complaints about funding... don't get me wrong - he overcooks both the undersell and overdeliver parts of his media strategy - but sooner or later there is going to be a reckoning with respect to how that pie is getting divided...

No Davies or David and many others not in for the Gold Cup?



This was decided a while ago they wouldnt play in the gold cup.

Load management and also they want to looks at some new players to bring into the squad potentially moving forward.

The nations league was the one Canada was focussed on this spring.

I think the usa is going in with a much weaker roster as well for the gold cup.
