Title: Seon Power
Post by: christiano on June 13, 2007, 06:19:38 PM
I have supported and read alot of flack about this player. But i want to bet that Seon Powers has what it takes to become a good defender for T&T . Great heart and commitment .I hope he keep up the good work  and dont let what he  read here affect his willingness to become a better player for T&T.

He has drastically improved CERTAIN aspects of his game from the  Digicel Cup and under the defensive coaching of WIM he will be a good enough defender in two years.

About the tourney. T&T with or without stars only once ever got past the first round. Great learning experience , much improved young stars that will form the bulk of our hope and dream for 2010 qualification.

WIM is a boss !!!!! Kudos to A. Roberts last night !!

I more encouraged by glenton wolfe.. He reminds me of avery with slightly better technique. Not a pure blade but covers ground well and keeps it simple. In the context of the game we wouldnt have seen him go forward as much would like to see how well he could overlap and join an attack. I wish we could go into another mini tournament so see this squad some more.

I find he real play last night. only a few people said anything about him...but he, Jan and Trent Noel were excellent last night imo. fast, well positioned and discipline..none of his tackles were desperate uncontrolled blade and he was nearly unbeatable on the night. played his way into the future squad as far as I can see

Cyd is a beacon of improving leaps and bounds. Wasn't it Cyd who headed a ball by his waist back into our box against Panama and this resulted in a goal during 2002 or 98 GC?

We all know the Hernon Medford story.

Powers has come far since the Digicel Cup. I doh mind him getting a run for a while longer.

Yeah ,when yuh here Powers yuh tink of Grey,but Grey had fitness and speed to burn which helped his many deficiencies.Still yuh can't right off Powers or anyone of those players.Let's hope dey smart and use dis experience to better themselves.

I saw every single Digicel Cup match of ours and a couple of JP games. Seon Power never impressed me in any of the games. His best match was against Haiti in the CFU final and even then he was just mediocre. The last two games however against the USA and Guatemala were encouraging. I say give Whim the benefit of the doubt on this one. If the man could start for us he has to have something on him. Against Guate last night the man show that he has the potential to improve and actually become a decent player. I would have given him a 7.

sean powers to me is ah shithound. now the man is 23 or 24 and at this age if you not ready for the grind when are you going to be ready. some may say i am hard on the fella but is dam shame when every ball he kick away to no one, he really can't kick the ball good, technique is poor. positioning is bad, he plays like is intercol football just wild and clueless. this football is international brand and as i alluded to before if you not ready at his age when will he be ready. from the first game this guy play just crawl my blood so i am on him. yes he may have heart, some skill but he can't make the grade. another thing, he play the left back but he doesn't seem a defender type, may be he could be used for overlapping runs but the team just hopeless going forward, can't connect at least 3 good passes so mr powers not going forward enough to be effective. on the defensive side he needs to be disciplined but to summarize everyting mr powers is not a smart player to make up for his deficiencies. not a fan.

The man improve and we cyar fault him for that.....but he ent ready for this level of ball.

They could more than find a replacement for him.

Our national team is not remedial or primary school...we don't bring you here to improve or find form.

Our national team supposed to be the best XI players that available.

No way no how Seon Power is the best left back in the pfl or who can represent TT

sorry..he doh do it for me...
too shaky in all i have seen of him since he get the initial callup

call in julius james or one a dem fellas from college...they hadda be a better wing back in the PFL than him i tink

maybe later on..but he not ready now
Title: Re: Seon Powers !
Post by: kicker on June 14, 2007, 07:57:44 AM
I'm pretty sure he knows his weaknesses, and it's pretty obvious that the coach sees something in him that he can work with- so all the armchair coaches who cyah kick a lime, singling him out and branding him a shittong on this thread, should temper it....because there is clearly a high degree of ignorance in your comments.....

It's also pretty obvious that left back is not his natural position- so everyone who keeps reiterating that there must be better left backs in the PFL could save their breath (fingers)....Because one: that is not obvious given the state of our local pro league and two: it is evident that Seon was alot more comfortable playing as a right sided defender...so that's a waste of time, unnecessarily derogatory comment. 

In terms of technique, decision making and positional play- I hate to break it to you, but the inadequacies of such run rampant in our squad...not just with Power- for some reason the microscope has been on him (Seon) this Gold Cup, but from what I remember, Theobald & Spann consistently made as many if not more errant passes than Seon, and it was Keyeno's lay lay pass across the back that cost us a point against El Salvador, Dwayne Jack's idiocy that probably, cost us a victory against Guatemala, and Keyeno's retarded & unnecessary challenge on Ruiz on the half line that stood out as the most amateur play in the cup for us.....(why not dedicate a thread to them).....

And again...his name is Seon Power not Powers  ;D

If he have de right attitude & Wim stick around.....Seon Power will be a STAR on de National team in 2 years.  Maybe less.

For some reason I could remember this being Cyd nickname too after the ''headed'' clearance when the ball was a foot off the ground. See, so Powers really can use Cyd as inspiration to improve !

Good call ... and from earlier posts ... This is international football... not a dolly house league .... Many of our players are not technically ready for this level.  Speed of play and decision making need to improve.  The team did show alot of determination for being down a man.  Well done.

Post by: Jahyouth on June 14, 2007, 08:12:44 AM
Seon Power is NOT international caliber.

People keep talking about effort and fight, but fellas without the requisite amount of quality all effort and fight lead to is mistakes and pullstones for the other players.

Power got three games to show what he could do.  He looked bad in all three.

We must have a better wingback than him to groom.

steups@college eh i saw tiger play college ball and there he looked very  good and when he played for trini in digicel cup he couldna trap ah ball either.if allyuh never see ha pfl game doh talk.

seon powers was one of the better defenders in the digicel cup for tirni and he is very young. yes he has to work on hsi technical ability is obvious..be he will run himself into the groudn for the team... much more than alot of other players.
he is very very young. instead of fighting down de youth so much... i say encourage hiim to work on his defincies and he could be potentially ah very good player.
by exposing him to this level now...he know what time it is and its up to him to make that concious decsion to raise de level of his game.

not miracles Palos.  But it is not too much to ask a defender at this level to be able to:

pass the ball 10 yards on the ground to your teammate when you are under no pressure?

check your approach to a winger and determine the angle, especially when you are in the first third of the field (right in front of your goal)

make a simple 40 yard pass in the air into the channel down the line without it going out of bounds?

Just because a player is young doesn't mean that grooming him will make him a quality or even serviceable player at the international level.  Somebody yesterday mentioned Cyd Grey when he just broke onto the team.  Good example.  He made mistakes, but they were under pressure and his defensive strength made up for it.  Power made key errors defending, mad problems passing the ball under little or no pressure, and went forward only to lose the ball shortly thereafter.

Look at what Wim did: first game Power started at left back.  He is right-footed and he did a horrendous job.  His excuse was probably that he can't play left back.  The second game he played right back.   Played shit same way.  He even cost us a goal.  The third game he played right back once agin, but his performance again left much to be desired.  What other choices did Wim have?  How many defenders did we take?  Especially with Noreiga out, Wim was forced to keep Power in the line up.

Palos, what did you see that would make you opt to keep this player around?  And please don't say fight and effort -- this is not the Eddiie Hart league.

JAH you basing this one 3 games right...and hsi games wasnt much worse than any othe rmember of his team?? give or take.

i saw him play about 5-6 games before than these 3. Admittedly this is higher level ah step up from digicel cup but he played agsiant haiti, cuba etc and played admirably. In de first game he had one ro 2 of the betetr attacking runs down de left flank  much more than i can say for our wingers.
 If your pts are valid they will eb valid in different ways for most of the team. What glasglwo do?? bleeder play average for  aplayer with his experince and "level" no??
so pic on seon for why now??

Glasgow did absolutely nothing.  Theobald played ok.  He is more a solid role player than a feature center link so he is needed.

As I mentioned before, the only players that I would keep when the foreign-based pros rejoin the team are:

Jan Michael
Keyeno Thomas
Anthony Noreiga
Trent Noel
Silvio Spann
Densill Theobald
Errol Mc Farlane

see dais meh pt. noel play one game and had a good one. u cant make ah finalised assement of a player based on one game?? When williams made some errors men was calling for his scalp. now half ah dem men praising him.
 For me most of the team did well.... glasglow for me was de biggest disspointment and to some extent bleeder cause i know he could play better.
 If ..no when this bullshit over and de rest of the players come back i dont expect powers to make the team..but he is one for the future along with noel etc etc...

Seon Power will have a future if he takes the initiative and works on technique.

Toussaint was the best field player for us but he needs to be put in the right position to make him successful.

The one player that should be banished until he figures it out is Dwayne Jack.

Touissant was good for 45 minutes against the US. He was nowhere near our best outfield player and was not particulalry good against Guatemala. There were a few better and more influential players on the pitch against Guateh..Touissant look like the most skilled fella on the pitch..but nowhere near the best performer imo

Why don't we talk about how Power looked when he actually got to play at his best position.....right back. All this talk about how poor he looked and few seem to realize that he only got to play in'his' position for the first half against Guatemala..and if anyone says he played shit in that first 45..you know nutten about football...or you too biased to form a decent opinion. I challenge anybody to watch the frist 45 minutes of T&T, Gutamala objectively and say Seon was not one of our better, more effective players..

Now I eh really sold on the fella...but when yuh calling a right back shit when he playing as a makeshift left back or central defender..dat rough.. At worse the man just eh versatile enough. But from what I saw of the first 45 against Guate..he could play much better than some seem to think

I have supported and read alot of flack about this player. But i want to bet that Seon Powers has what it takes to become a good defender for T&T . Great heart and commitment .I hope he keep up the good work  and dont let what he  read here affect his willingness to become a better player for T&T.

He has drastically improved CERTAIN aspects of his game from the  Digicel Cup and under the defensive coaching of WIM he will be a good enough defender in two years.

About the tourney. T&T with or without stars only once ever got past the first round. Great learning experience , much improved young stars that will form the bulk of our hope and dream for 2010 qualification.

WIM is a boss !!!!! Kudos to A. Roberts last night !!

Laters




I not out to down this youth man at all... I hope he becomes a good defender.... unlikely

but right now he is no where close to being a good international, I don't even know if he is good enough for english 2nd div.

again I am just giving my unbiased opinion from what I saw in the Gold Cup

I doubt from what I have seen that he will ever make it out of Trinidad

Lacking speed, composure and ball skills... again this guy is probably better than 99% of us on the forum... but he doesn't play against us!

To compete at the highest level a defender must have speed and heart (and talent too), and as all ah yuh know we hardly have defenders with speed, and most doh have heart - so leave Power alone let them work with de man, they have 2 years to help de man, and from what I see he goh make it. All yuh remember Carlos Edwards wasn't no major talent, but the man had heart, and nuff speed - they had to harvest he talent.

Men looking for perfection - behave all yuh self. We pool small we not England and Brazil where talent is a dime ah dozen, we pool limited, so we goh always have this situation.

For the 2006 WC we were one of the worse teams on paper, but left as the darlings.

steups@college eh i saw tiger play college ball and there he looked very  good and when he played for trini in digicel cup he couldna trap ah ball either.if allyuh never see ha pfl game doh talk.

seon powers was one of the better defenders in the digicel cup for tirni and he is very young. yes he has to work on hsi technical ability is obvious..be he will run himself into the groudn for the team... much more than alot of other players.
he is very very young. instead of fighting down de youth so much... i say encourage hiim to work on his defincies and he could be potentially ah very good player.
by exposing him to this level now...he know what time it is and its up to him to make that concious decsion to raise de level of his game.

Some peeps lack foresight.  Not a criticism of dem....jes a opinion.  Is like some peeps expeck a man to walk on de field and perform miracles.

De same people who callin Power a shithong is de same one's ravin bout Toussaint because he rip 3 men in a play.

not miracles Palos.  But it is not too much to ask a defender at this level to be able to:

pass the ball 10 yards on the ground to your teammate when you are under no pressure?

check your approach to a winger and determine the angle, especially when you are in the first third of the field (right in front of your goal)

make a simple 40 yard pass in the air into the channel down the line without it going out of bounds?

Just because a player is young doesn't mean that grooming him will make him a quality or even serviceable player at the international level.  Somebody yesterday mentioned Cyd Grey when he just broke onto the team.  Good example.  He made mistakes, but they were under pressure and his defensive strength made up for it.  Power made key errors defending, mad problems passing the ball under little or no pressure, and went forward only to lose the ball shortly thereafter.

Look at what Wim did: first game Power started at left back.  He is right-footed and he did a horrendous job.  His excuse was probably that he can't play left back.  The second game he played right back.   Played shit same way.  He even cost us a goal.  The third game he played right back once agin, but his performance again left much to be desired.  What other choices did Wim have?  How many defenders did we take?  Especially with Noreiga out, Wim was forced to keep Power in the line up.

Palos, what did you see that would make you opt to keep this player around?  And please don't say fight and effort -- this is not the Eddiie Hart league.

JahYouth yuh sum it up quite nicely.......i feel we should start ah thread for each member of de team, ah want to believe that the reason men picking on POWER??/POWERS??? is because he SH%T was piled the highest, granted other men had high piles too......i am of the mindest that a National footballer should be able to make a 10-yard pass pressure or no pressure, tired or not, the man is 23/24 years old. also when i screwing up on my JOB i should expect to get criticize for it, i know the comparison not accurate because; these fellahs WORK is playing FOOTBALL!!!!! is it too much to ask that a fellah be able to make a 10/20/30/40 yard pass with he natural right foot to within 5/10 yards of a teamate?? I think not.

Jah..Power did not cause any goal against the US. He wasn't even playing right back in that game. He started on the left. When Noreiga got hurt, he moved to the center with Keyeno. It was either Nickolson or Spann or whoever else it was who was horrendously out of position when Mapp collected the ball on the left. Power came across to cover after the first manwas left for dead. He did not have the speed to catch Mapp and although he was beaten..it was not he whose mistake caused the goal. Why you doh mention earlier when the same Mapp mash up the right back and cross easy to Eddie Johnson..who was the only defender who got back to jam the man in the 6 yard box and give Jan ah easy save...Seon power. In fact in the first half..watch the highlights..Power had at least 1 other goal saving tackle that put off Ching after he broke on goal one on one..while every other man Jack was beaten and jogging back to goal with their mouth open.

The ONLY time he played right back was in the first 45 against Guatemala. And I challenge anyone to criticize that first 45 minutes.

Having said that..he needs to work real hard on many aspects of his game. He has some glaring weaknesses..but his 45 minutes againts Guatemala at his natural position gives me hope that he could still come good

Agreed!!!

All our players need work but some have better tools than others to work with.

Again, I think that Toussaint is no playing in the right position. He should be playing facing the defense. Very skillful that with drive and initiative could take him far.

Seon Power has exactly what has been lacking in TnT football for a long time. He works hard and gives 100% at all times. People here are so blinded by offensive talent that they can't see how much of an impact he had on the game defensively. He was probably the best defender we had in terms of tackles won and plays broken up. He was also probably the fittest player. That can also be inspirational to teammates.

He needs to work hard on the technical aspects of the game but a person with drive like him is more likely to improve than any of the players. The coach obviously rates him highly because he played everywhere in the defense. He probably will never be a skills man but he can become more comfortable on the ball. He can learn to be effective playing within his limitations, a la Gary Neville.

Think about it; Essien's biggest contribution to Chelsea is his work rate and never say die attitude.

 I did not see the TT/Guat.. But from all the comments, it seems that it was a vast improvement from the US game. In the US game Power was a bit shakey, made some bad passes but he improved as the game went on. The biggest gripe I had with this team was their fitness level and their physical strength to an extent. Yes, one need skill and must be able to make precision passes, but ones fitness/recovery rate must be upto par. Especially against the US. These guys are pros. They are not port workers or guys who working 9-5 jobs. The onus is always  on the individual to get in top shape for big  tournaments. They were still playing at the Digicel Cup level. The US outrun and out muscle our guys. I am not insinuating we get bruisers, but our guys should be able to go shoulder to shoulder against their oponents without falling over. But everyone says there was a mark improvement in their play vs Guat. Unfortunately they needed that performance against the US. But there is hope.

As far the future goes, Power should be on the senior squad, providing he work on his ball skills(bringing the ball from defence to the half line with confidence) and work on his physical attributes. Toussaint should be on that team. He has skill and composure. His physical needs improvement also. Look, that goes for everybody on the team. Together with the blacklisted players, we are seing a good nucleus for 2010 taking shape. To be honest he biggest problem for the TT team is Jack/TTFF. They are the cause for our inconsistency in international football. Go TT!!. Droit au but.

the game was wide open, but the performance of both teams was below par.

MArvin Andrews also had trouble bringing the ball from the back as did most of our ballers..its a matter of confidence I suspect as well as a fully functioning midfield.  Notice before Wim we had great difficulty getting the ball to out midfielders and usually played backs and forwards...Boom kicking the ball with the hope of finding the forwards..time and confidence will improve that aspect of his game.

Power has played himself into the margins. Foot to eat, but away from the thick of things.

I suspect it's to give him playing time. He had surgery on his left tibia back in January, and it was said at the time that he would be out of the game for at least 3 months. Maybe it took longer to recover.

Video of Seon Power in Thailand. Scored a goal at 38 seconds after video start and helped to conceded a goal later after an attacker sneaked behind his header back-pass. Looks like he is a staple in central defense there. Aware that he sort of said Coach a cyah make while he was at the Gold Cip before but that was then. Hope he still is available as we need a VERY deep bench to carry us through World Cup qualifiers, as shite does happen as did for the Panama main defender who just geh his knee lick up. Merge when yuh ready Mods ...

Trinidad and Tobago International Seon Power signs for Ulaanbaatar City FC
By Justin Grimm (mongolianfootball.com)


April 2, 2018

Two days after Ulaanbaatar City FC announced the signing of 2017 Goalkeeper of the Year Austin Rogers, they have now announced the addition of Trinidad and Tobago international defender Seon Power for the 2018 season.

The 34-year-old defender most recently played for Central FC in his domestic league.

Power, however, brings a vast amount of experience in Asia to the team, having played for almost six years in Thailand. He spent several seasons with Chainat Hornbill FC, now in the top division in Thailand, before going on loan to Dome FC Rangsit and later joining Phuket FC.

Power also brings a wealth of international experience, scoring twice in 43 caps for the Soca Warriors. He has participated in almost a dozen World Cup qualifiers and two Gold Cups, CONCACAF's premier competition.

Expect more major signings by Ulaanbaatar City FC in the coming days.
