so Canada is fucked regarding world cup qualification. I'm so mad about this right now. Mad and gutted. Yesterday they lost (understandibly) to Mexico, meaning that they're essentially out of it.

fucking CSA. Fucking SHIIIIIIIT coach Dale Mitchell - who never should have been given this job to begin with. Fucking dissapointment and embarrassment all around.

You know, this current team (imo) definately had the talent to at least advance out of this group stage - but bad luck against Jamaica and an absolute travesty against Honduras proved otherwise.

I've been a pretty passionate supporter of the Canadian team. now i just feel like giving up.

Travesty against Honduras? They did it to themselves. Instead of continuing to be aggressive on the offensive end and take chance, they got the 1 goal lead and decided to be defensive and sit back. They fucked themselves like always.

that's what i meant by travesty. The entire game and effort was despicable from a Canadian point of view. They completely deserved to lose - and it just infuriates me because I thought this particular squad was capable of much better.

That whole Honduras game made me want to throw up. I had a little viewing party with some friends and for the first real time i was embarrased to support Canada - especially considering that the game was in Montreal. 80% of the fans were Honduran fans. Un-fucking-believable. It's so disrespectful to your country when "canadians" living in Canada do this. It really pisses me off. It's so deflating to see something like that happen. anyways - i think i'm going to put this team on the backburner for a while - and what's funny is the CSA cares less about things than i do!

Yeah, Dale Mitchell is a shitty coach too. Time to bring back Lenarduzzi ... hell, I'd love to see Osieck too.

take that mancs. take that!

Man it feels good to be on the winning end of a match against Manunited. Being at the top of the table is pretty sweet considering our two star players are now just getting back from injury.

Also, albert Riera looked great. Able to beat his man and can dish out some pretty creative balls.

I dragged myself to scallywags pub for the 7:45 match - after just 4 hours sleep. It was worth it.

walk on!

One of my favourite attackers Forlan got injured so thats bad news, but they did play well. They look good this year.

Fuck Roma and fuck every italian team. They got lucky again and eliminated Real Madrid last year with luck.Im always happey when they lose.

Barcelona played great too. The talent of this team is just ridiculous, individually theres no team that can match them. Too bad for their struggles to score. Iniesta = god.

Madrid will win tomorrow against that team from Russia for sure even if we play crappy like always, so the game to watch is Man. United - Villareal. They are my second favourite team after Real, and they have such a beautiful and respectul style.
I still remember the penalty Riquelme missed against Arsenal in the Semis two years ago.
Villareal outplayed them in London but lost. Thats my second worst moment in sports.

hehe, Maybe you mean the South Korea - Spain game in Japans World cup where Spain got robbed. But my worst momment was when Spain lost to Russia in the Eurocup basketball finals in the last shot when we were winning by 5 with one minute left against an inferior team.

I was pissed for two days.

Great results. Madrid wins 2 - 0 but it should have been more. Villareal ties the game in old trafford. It was a great game. Villareal almost scored in one of the best plays I have seen in a loong time.

3 wins and a tie. Good.
