Canada’s domestic cup championship may still be in its infancy but the fact that it has even been around as long as it has been is due to the efforts of a group of Canadian soccer fans.
I’m broken. I am furious, and I am shattered with grief; as low as sports can ever make any human feel. I’m angry because we were promised so much more.
Dead last in the league, dead last in attendance, and miles from the playoffs. Edmonton’s future, we can only hope, is better than its present. Though it could hardly be worse.
I’m disappointed. Shattered, in fact; I’ve never felt worse from sports than I feel today. But let down? By the Canadian women’s national team? No. Never.
Rather than take the same easy way and appoint whichever old CSA toady you like to the position of technical director, the Canadian Soccer Association is looking for new blood to revive the men’s program. That is hugely commendable.
