Discussion in 'Canada' started by Andrew Jackson, Jan 23, 2011.
He's already one of the three best strikers in our entire pool.
If that's the case, we're sorry for you.
We haven't had a forward score in a world cup since Landon Donovan in 2002.
Of course I guess you haven't had anyone score since at least 1986.
I felt bad for poaching because I want the Canadian national team to get better. But, damn if he hasn't been stellar in his two caps.
If you're trolling it's no big deal. He's an American (raised from a young age) and should be playing for you. We know our pool is shallow but if he's one of your best already, you're in trouble.
Be nice, AJ has come here being a good sport.
That said, we're not too happy about losing him, but there are others either already capped or we expect to be capped that are more important to us than Bunbury.
Keeping my fingers crossed for Hoilett.
Actually we've never scored at a world cup we went goalless. it is what it is..
All Stephen Hart can do is use players that are available...It's better to know if a particular player is yours or not...If Bunbury is with USA,at least it's a closed deal...What is is still outstanding that Hoilett won't tell the national coach if he will play or not???
For example,the Czechs have a policy,they never beg,convince or suck up to anyone...
That's a good policy and one I totally agree with.
Me too, I'm getting a bit sick of reading about people pleading with themselves that Jonathon De Guzman will change his mind and play for Canada. If we want Hoillet to play for Canada, we give him a call, try to nudge him along a bit, if he says he's going with Jamaica, I say f*** him, it's his loss.
All this grovelling is scraping our knees, anyhow.
Well I don't know much about Czech football, but are there alot of players that are eligible for both the CZE and another country? Like are there alot of Slovak, Polish or German eligible Czech players?
There are some,but they have sometimes issues with a player who won't answer the calls etc...I.E...Jarosik,Ujfalusi etc...
Bunbury apparently collided with Hainault and dislocated his elbow in a pre-season game...Young player,hope he gets well soon.
you just changed my opinion of you
there were folks in another forum applauding his injury out of a sour grape mentality
glad not to see that here
You'll often get that from Canadian fans because:
a) they're bitter about the number of players who've emigrated from Canada to play elsewhere,
b) they don't understand that nationality is inherently personal and that they have no right to judge someone else's sense of belonging.
If FIFA banned playing for other then birth country,then Canada would lose a lot of players.So,you can't have it both ways.
It'd be interesting to see what the gains and losses would have been if that was the rule that FIFA used.
Gained: Hargreaves, JDG the younger, Bunbury, and be certain to get Hoilett
Lost: Gerba, Jakovic, Radzinski, Imhof, Jackson, Al-Shaibani, Djekanovic, Klukowski, Hume
That's just off the top of my head.
Overall, we're probably better off with the rules as they are despite the loss of two players (Hargreaves and JDGjr) who would have been among the best we ever had.
We would lose way more dudes then that.
Well let me fix that. Glad to see a Canuck involved in putting the young douchebag on the ground.
That could mean a red card and a suspenssion in an important game/tourney...LOL.
Yeah, how dare he spend most of his life living in the United States and play in their leagues, and then consider himself American. The gall of that kid!
Grow the **** up, genius.
And take up precious little Canadian resources by accepting invites to Canadian camps. The gall of that kid!
Personally I'd call it trolling on ol' Miro's part (which helped get him kicked out at Vs, which is an almost impossible thing to do), but you have your opinion and I have mine.
Sour grapes? When a player goes to your camps and takes up space then goes to another country (no matter how legitimate the claim) that is douche behaviour and as far as I'm concerned, anything goes. As for Hainault taking him out, karma's a bitch.
That's a lovely sentiment but for 95% of the players today who have a choice, it's about how many dollars that playing on Team X could generate.
We as fans have every right to question those decisions. And as public figures they are fair game for discussion.
So is Marcel DeJong a douche for using up Dutch resources and playing for us?
Will David Hoilett be a douche for using up English resources if he chooses to play for us?
Can you distinguish the difference between club and national teams?
