The point is we played football like i havent seen in what seems like ever. We actualyl attacked the opponents net...i as orgasming at the site of it...ok maybe not...but my oh my what a display from our guys.

We are not expected to beat brazil and even a half ass brazilian team....but to lose 3-2 was something else. Things look bright for our boys in red and i look forward to them building on this little milestone. We have to use games like this to show our team, our youth that we can play with the big boys.

Sure Brazil could have had severl other goals but we should have as well.

I must say though, pat ondstant sucks balls. We need a real keeper.
Yeah man, i caught that game. I've actually been keeping a close eye on the Canadian mens team for the past few years.

Things definately look bright for "our boys in red" for a while now Jatt. You saw it last year in the Gold Cup. They were actually robbed of the game vs. the USA by the refs.
Fact is now Canada is pretty balanced and has quality players all over the pitch. Serioux, Jazic, DeGuzman (what a goal by him BTW), Friend, Hume, Hutchinson, and my personal favorite Dwayne Derosario are all solid solid footballers.
For the first time on years, decades, i actually think Canada "Should" qualify for a worldcup spot.

I'm calling it here RIGHT NOW: Canada will finish 2nd in concacaf qualifying. not third.... second! That's right, we'll finish ahead of either US or Mexico.

And Ondstat is actually pretty good. I'm also confident in Sutton (TFC's keeper). He's Canada's no.2 option right now, but should be very good if called upon.
