group 2 is the hardest, if there is such a thing

mattttt, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 02:01 (eleven years ago) link

How many qualify from each group? Or is it more complicated than that?

caek, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 02:07 (eleven years ago) link

Ah, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2010_FIFA_World_Cup_qualification_(CONCACAF). One per group + a runner up gets a play off with South American runner up.

caek, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 02:10 (eleven years ago) link

It's all kinds of complicated for what boils down to USA, Mexico, who-the-fuck-cares 1, who-the-fuck-cares 2(optional)

mattttt, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 02:12 (eleven years ago) link

Surprised to see Jamaica ranked below Honduras and Panama. Have they got really shitty in the last few years?

caek, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 02:14 (eleven years ago) link

I will be supporting Jamaica because of Sheffield United's Luton Shelton.

caek, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 02:20 (eleven years ago) link

the big news here ("big") is that the US might meet Cuba at some point.

will Canada suck or not suck?

jergïns, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 03:02 (eleven years ago) link

Depends on whether there's a stunning return to form for Paul Peschisolido.

You still got Craig Forrest in goal?

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:17 (eleven years ago) link

Lol Paul Stalteri.

So, Mexico, USA, Costa Rica then.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:20 (eleven years ago) link

Mexico and the USA really should play in the South American tier, then just send all the other CONCACAF nations over to play what's left of Oceania, winner gets beaten 7-1 over two legs by, I dunno, Iran or someone afterwards to stop them qualifying.

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:22 (eleven years ago) link

"Barbuda"?

Tracer Hand, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:27 (eleven years ago) link

Hahaha, the Montserrat national team's head coach is RUEL FOX!

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:28 (eleven years ago) link

OTM really.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:39 (eleven years ago) link

Is this the sort of gerrymandering that basically gives Australia a bye into the finals then?

Matt DC, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:40 (eleven years ago) link

Dear piss-poor Honduras FA,

I'm writing to tell you that you are now required to spend lots of money flying your players half way round the world to play frankly pointless qualifiers against the Cook Islands and Papua New Guinea.

I know you can't afford this, but hey, it might stop the USA qualifying, which I'm sure you'd agree would be lolololol.

Yours,

Sepp Blatter

Matt DC, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:49 (eleven years ago) link

Honduras are ranked #46 in the world! They have recently beaten Mexico, and held Denmark to a draw.

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:51 (eleven years ago) link

Ie: David Suazo on his own is better than all-but-two entire CONCACAF teams.

Dom Passantino, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 09:52 (eleven years ago) link

oh it's "Antigua AND Barbuda"

Barbuda itself "has a population of about 1,500, most of whom live in the town of Codrington."

Tracer Hand, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 10:36 (eleven years ago) link

I see the US has it tough as ever

Tom D., Tuesday, 27 November 2007 10:37 (eleven years ago) link

Uruguay to beat Canada or Jamaica in the play-off

blueski, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 10:46 (eleven years ago) link

Group 2 actually is a bit of a group of death.

Mark C, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 10:57 (eleven years ago) link

I hear the British Virgin Islands are on fire at the moment

Tom D., Tuesday, 27 November 2007 10:58 (eleven years ago) link

... quide liderally

Tom D., Tuesday, 27 November 2007 10:58 (eleven years ago) link

The final line there should be "Haiti vs winner of Nicaragua v Netherlands Antilles", shouldn't it?

anatol_merklich, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 13:23 (eleven years ago) link

Yes. And the final line of Group 2 should be simply "Canada v St Vincent and the Grenadines."

Tracer Hand, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 13:26 (eleven years ago) link

Or, rather, every line should have "Winner of" in front of it just like the Canada line, since each of the three groups will consist of four teams when they get to the actual group stage.

(OK, that might be confusing without parentheses such as "Winner of Jamaica vs. (winner of Bahamas v British Virgin Islands)")

(Or have I misunderstood?)

anatol_merklich, Tuesday, 27 November 2007 13:32 (eleven years ago) link

I think it'd be cool if Canada could pull off qualification, if only for De Rosario's sake.

jergïns, Thursday, 7 February 2008 03:05 (eleven years ago) link

US scored a header, Mexico got the equalizer, US got another header all in the last 10 minutes ( minutes 30-40 of primer tiempo)

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 7 February 2008 03:07 (eleven years ago) link

And now another goal from the US. But a flag!

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 7 February 2008 03:07 (eleven years ago) link

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 7 February 2008 03:14 (eleven years ago) link

Some kind of glitch made the screen freeze on some studio shot.

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 7 February 2008 03:28 (eleven years ago) link

And Mexico gets the equalizer at minute two of segundo tiempo.

James Redd and the Blecchs, Thursday, 7 February 2008 03:33 (eleven years ago) link

a draw

jergïns, Thursday, 7 February 2008 06:41 (eleven years ago) link

well played or disappointing?

jergïns, Thursday, 7 February 2008 06:41 (eleven years ago) link

The first half was great, the second had its moments. I'd say it was a fair draw in the end. USA's defense looked iffy a lot of the time. Altidore's goal (the second header) was a thing of beauty.

dan m, Thursday, 7 February 2008 14:08 (eleven years ago) link

i'm still confused as to why dempsey's goal was disallowed. he looked completely onside to me and the univision announcers. (i couldn't handle the espn 3 screen cut outs to show the duke game)

molly mummenschanz, Thursday, 7 February 2008 14:13 (eleven years ago) link

I'm going to have to go to some bar somewhere to watch any of this. Freddy's??

Dickerson Pike, Thursday, 7 February 2008 14:58 (eleven years ago) link

That could be hilarious.

Laurel, Thursday, 7 February 2008 15:06 (eleven years ago) link

Drew Moor = shit. Nice cross, but as far as I can tell his piss poor marking allowed two identical goals.

John Harkes kept talking about the youth and inexperience of the team, and for some reason gave Ramiro Corrales as an example. Hell, I watched Corrales lose his defenders eleven years ago when he started with the Metros, and he hasn't exactly gotten faster or smarter in the interim. As for his right foot: has anyone actually see that it's not, in fact, a prosthesis molded from cast iron? Once the Mexicans figured out he was exclusively left footed, they forced him to use his right foot to play the ball, and we got to see some very unusual trajectories.

Convey looked terrified most of the game. He doesn't have any idea how to figure out his passing options when counterattacking, which should be priority A for any USA midfielder.

Dempsey's non-goal was Bergkampesque. I guess he really was barely offside, but how did the ref not see the flag for fifteen seconds?

Totally undeserved 2-2 draw. Thank you Jozy and Tim Howard.

Kekeke was in work elevator with someone this morning who kept trying to explain to a basketball goon that he didn't really follow sports other than soccer. Goon kept asking, "So uh do you PLAY soccer? Not much going on for you this time of year, eh? Hey, are you gonna go out for the company softball team?"

Laurel, Thursday, 7 February 2008 16:58 (eleven years ago) link

Moor and the other outside back really did look terrible.

dan m, Thursday, 7 February 2008 17:04 (eleven years ago) link

buuuuuut chupete is ruled out so who knows? de nigris is still a hell of a player in his own right.

also concacaf's website is going to be streaming the match freely, dunno about outside north america though

rayados campeones otra vez

Silky Slim (dan m), Thursday, 26 April 2012 02:01 (seven years ago) link

sucks for santos, their 4th loss in a final since 2010

Silky Slim (dan m), Thursday, 26 April 2012 02:02 (seven years ago) link

am kinda curious, as reading stuff this morning about rayados' victory i saw that this competition hsa been won 13/17 times by mexican clubs. i don't really watch the mls but i would have thought the level of its club would be somewhat similar to those of mexican ones. am i completely wrong and mexican clubs are far better? or do the mls teams not really care about this competition?

Jibe, Thursday, 26 April 2012 06:56 (seven years ago) link

also btw thanks for posting as this reminds me to go check on the rayados

Jibe, Thursday, 26 April 2012 06:57 (seven years ago) link

Over the past several years the starting 11 for the MLS clubs in the CCL can hang with the Mexican clubs for the most part, but the Mexican clubs are a lot deeper when it comes to quality of players and also have a ton more money to throw around. I mean Monterrey has Suazo and De Nigris who are damn good but also has Luis Perez w/ 80-some caps for Mexico, Walter Ayovi who played for Barca and many times for Ecuador, plus a bunch of other lesser-capped players in support. I think the way the seasons for each league are laid out has a lot to do with it, too. The way it works currently the knock-out rounds start just as MLS is coming into pre-season but the Mexican clubs are in the midst of their tournament.

On the whole though, really, they're just better. :)

Silky Slim (dan m), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:08 (seven years ago) link

In the group stages of this latest tournament an MLS club beat a Mexican side in Mexico for the first time ~ever~, too.

Silky Slim (dan m), Thursday, 26 April 2012 15:10 (seven years ago) link

ok thx for the explanations.

I'd still like to go! But convincing them to go see their most hated team vs. the team that just knocked them out (and played like little bitches the whole time, too) is gonna be a hard sell, even if we already got the tickets - it's still about a 3 hour drive each way. And I admit that part of me is relieved that I won't have to go to a US/Mexico game.

Does anyone know the best way to get hold of Mexico vs Trinidad tickets for the Azteca? I'd imagine the away allocation is unlikely to sell out but i'm not sure if you can just roll up on the day.

Truth is I don't know. Friends of mine have gotten away tix for US games at Aztecs but they knew people who work for the federation. That's my only guess, actually, to get in touch with the Trinidad FA. (And resist making Jack Warner jokes.)
