Imagine Kenwyne cyah even make the squad because the coach say that he doesn't fit his style of play. When he said that I wondered why Kenwyne not on the bench at least so that if the coach decides to change tactics during the game. Therefore there is no flexibility. However, we all knew that politics in our football had more to do for Jones' drop. Imagine the same coach use Bakr in this game and Cyrus in Nicaragua up front to try to do what Kenwyne does. SMFH....it sad...bad...

Football / Expressing Thanks to Hart
« on: December 06, 2016, 06:39:42 PM »
There isn't a day that goes by for the last five years or more that I don't read this forum. However, my posts are few. I am moved however this time to make a suggestion. I feel saddened by the way Hart was dismissed. I feel he gave his all for his country and made several sacrifices only to be undermined in the end by those who have their biases. Even though I know that in modern football management, results are the bottom line and so coaches live and die by this, I think that Mr Hart needs to know that his efforts were recognized and well appreciated by most fans. Is there a way this can be done?

Well said just cool. I been saying the same thing a while now and taken heat for it. Whenever we face a half decent opposition we can't string four passes together, we resort to what we saw yesterday. After those games we hear the same analysis: midfield absent, lost our shape etc. If however by some miracle we had earned a draw (Mexico hit post 5 times..), you would have heard the accolades being offered. In the PanAm Games, Mexico played with a "B Team" and we were very lucky. We can live against a European style of play but really look out of place against the quick passing, South American style. We have decent players to work with but that level and style of play is new to them and will need lots of exposure to get accustomed with it.

Having said this I expect a better showing vs Panama who traditionally relies on a bit more athleticism and brawn than most other Central American teams. This should suit us better.

Fellas should celebrate - they fought bravely. But what does this game tell about our state of our football? The gap is closing? I say no! I prefer to see good play and loose 3 nil in a game like this. I long for the day to see our footballers actually string 8 or 9 passes consistently in a game. Right now our results against decent opposition depends on much luck and hope opposition have an off day. Hate to admit it but Jamaica shape much better than us for the last few years and can actually put decent teams under sustained pressure.

Breds this core team beat Jamaica every single time they played them since U-17, including beating them in Jamaica to qualify for 2007 World Cup . This is the most successful team we have ever had, but they are not even the most talented squad in the last 5 years. Is hard work and a little care from the federation put them here. The only thing missing from that equation now is the attention of the federation.

If people really wanted to see good results they would pay a lot more attention to youth football. I does harp on this until I'm blue in the face. Watch what we have coming up in U-17 football in Trinidad, a real golden generation, a crop of some real strong players, who should be the target of enhanced training and peer group competition. But they getting NOTHING from this federation. Then in about a year or two time men will come and talk about how we players can't string passes together, they shitty, etc.

People talk about  'gap' opening and closing like is some kind of magic portal. Its we the footballing community who open the gap by sheer force of will and committment. And its we who let it close on us when we lazy. It doh open and close itself.

By the time men seeing a T&T side consistently getting licks against good opposotion, there is no more point complaining, the window of opprtunity done pass years ago.

I will continue to celebrate this side win loose or draw because they stand for what happens when we do things right from the beginning.


The ultimate goal of any country's football programme is to produce teams that can consistently contend and qualify for places in the world cup. There's no doubt that this team has been very successful in the past and has a few sparkling talents but I feel that they have not developed as a team as I had hoped - no fault of theirs. I agree that the money and focus of our programme needs to be expended on youth development and that the TTFF must accept most blame for the very inconsistent results we have been having. Let's see in the Olympic Qualifiers, when all teams are at their best, if we still beat the teams that we did in the younger age groups.I hope we do! I love T&T football and would watch them play on TV over Manu, Barca etc. but what would have been the comments if the score was 4-1, as it easily could have been on another day. I have commented in the past and I have noticed this a lot with posters in this forum, you only look at the result to determine how well our team plays.

I was totally disheartened once more by T&T's performance last night v Mexico but not surprised. When I spoke about the team's lack of technical and tactical ability last year in the PanAm Games men want to bite off meh head. All they looked at was the scoreline and not the standard of play and in particular the inability to perform even the basics. Wish the guys all the best in their remaining games.

I would celebrate if is a world cup qualifier or the gold cup. What counts most here is to gauge player and team development. Yes the point earned is commendable on the face of it but the bigger picture is of greater significance.

My thoughts exactly! Many on this forum look purely at the score and not the standard of play. When was the last time did you Trinidad dictate play against any decent international side. To win or draw we have to defend for we life and hope for some luck. It the same way sides like Bermuda could beat us.

« on: October 17, 2011, 05:09:30 PM »
From what I've seen of T&T v B'dos, we need all the big guns back v Guyana. Even though we score 4, not impressed. Still not compact enough to challenge any decent international team. Guyana strengthening with Brits and I think we should try also. Hector though looked a class apart and should be given every chance to be exposed and develop. Worried about Telesford at right back as he is not disciplined and consistent enough. Left back also is too slow and will be exposed by nippy winger. Hyland needs to show more and keeping the ball circulating. Stern out of shape bad and right now seems like baggage. Jagdeosingh showed brightly but needs to prove himself at this level.

By the way one of the best ball I see T&T play was a U23 team  I believe under Stuart Charles - real nice knock but needed killer instinct. Feel he should be in the national setup.

Football / Skill Development in T&T
« on: March 31, 2011, 08:38:48 AM »
I'm focusing on specifically dribbling skills. Where has it gone? I can think about Dwarika, Terry 'Jughead' St. Louis, young Yorke, Latas, Nixon to name a few who have entertained us and used their individual skill to unlock opposition defenses. When I look at our national teams today, there seems to be no one who can fit into that mold. While I must admit that our national teams play with more structure than what I have seen in the past (albeit at a very slow pace), we lack greatly the spontaneity and  creativity that individual brilliance brings. We know that the talent is there because we see it in our players at the infant stages of their careers but as they develop they seem to just lose it. Rahim, Britto, Winchester (to a lesser extent) to name a few. Is it the method of coaching involved, too much emphasis on organizational play and little time spent on free play? You coaches out there might have the answers.

I believe that the truly great dribblers are not coached into that but develop their skills in their formative years through open, free play. Are our young footballers still playing small post or some version of it? I believe there is a need and a place for it just as many Brazilians develop their skills on the streets.  Excellent dribbling skills are not coached but developed through exposure and encouragement at embryonic stages.

Some observations from game:
1. No speed! No speed of thought, ball movement and of feet. First time I see nearly an entire team jog a whole world cup qualifier!
2. Very little creativity as hardly anybody could have dribbled past an opposing player and absolutely no ideas in midfield especially for penetrating distribution.
3. No clear plan of attack.
4. Winchester needs to start and be encouraged to hold ball a little longer and take on defenders in around opposing penalty area. I would start him in midfield though!
5. Trinidad football in a real mess because this team has a fair number of our "bright prospects".
6. How long this team training now? Seems like only for a couple months at best especially for what seems a lack of conditioning.
7. Are they actually coaching this pattern of play? Nearly all our teams seem to play the same way, no matter the coach.

Golden Jaguars and Soca Warriors set for September 26 showdown
Starbroek News


The matches between Guyana’s Golden Jaguars and Trinidad’s Soca Warriors and Guyana’s Under-20 and Trinidad’s Junior Warriors will take place at the Guyana National Stadium.

Yesterday, the Directors of the organization, Kashif Muhammad and Aubrey ‘Shanghai’ Major along with President of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Colin Klass held a press briefing to inform the public what steps have been taken so far in putting together the event.

In Muhammad’s brief remarks he said that over the next few weeks their organization will be embarking on an ‘emotional journey’ to let the Guyanese public know who the players are that will be representing them.

“The GFF supports the venture they have come up with and I think this also is a way to see where Guyana is on the international stage. It will be a lot of work to complete in a short space of time in preparation but we will be ready since we are not prepared to lose at home,” said GFF president Colin Klass.

“I believe the way for our football to develop is having international exposure … to compete and derive the best possible team to represent us at a higher level,” he further said.

The competition, he said, was timely since Guyana’s football season has recently resumed and it will better help in the preparation for the upcoming Digicel Cup and other international competitions.

Klass also disclosed that they are working towards turning the September 26 event into a triple header and are awaiting confirmation from a Surinamese National Under-17 squad to oppose another junior Jags team.

The long-standing GFF president also said that a number of overseas-based Guyanese players will be arriving in Guyana to join the local players in the squad to represent their country.

They include Christopher Bourne, Walter Moore, Howard Newton, JP Rodrigues, Alinani Mounter, Shawn `Bubbly’ Beveney, Fabian Brown, Chris Nurse, Sean Cameron, Jake Newton, Ricky Shakes, Jason Lloyd,  Gregory Richardson and Gamaal Breedy.

What more is there for us to gain from these games?

I was very very impressed with what i saw of Jagdeosingh. He must find a place in the Warriors lineup. I would love to see him start. He may not be clinical but who is right now. What he will do is run, dribble, tackle and create mayhem in defences. Time for Jones to be converted into a holding midfielder. Can't see much going past him.

Very good comments PEG. I agree except with the strong  performances of Noel and Spann today and with Hyland in for Yorke, there is no place for Birchall in the starting eleven right now. Except if you play him for Tinto on the right wing.

Agreed. Team looks good with fight, hustle and good passing. Except for much of second half when they resorted to long balls when they were behind. Latas has made a big difference. We just need to tighten up at the back and work on concentration for full 90.

Thomas for Dog.
Samuel for Tinto. Even though i prefer to see Baptiste instead.
Glen for Scotland.
Yorke legs understandably can no longer carry him a full game. Would like to see Hyland introduced early second half.

Football / T&T vs Costa Rica Players Performances.
« on: June 06, 2009, 06:20:06 PM »
Ince - Solid..defence let him down. (8 )
Dog, Tallest - Too many lapses for this level. Cost us this game. (5)
Avery - Very solid defensively as usual. Not much going forward. We can accept that.(8 )
Carlos - Decent performance but still needs to work alot on crossing.(8.5)
Noel - Really impressed with him. Workrate, hustle, outstanding but needs to improve finishing.(8 )
Yorke - Average...thought he would have been substituted midway second half for Hyland(6.5)
Spann - Very solid game. Started to look like Spann of last campaign. Good hustle, distribution. Opts to shoot to quickly sometimes when better options are available. Should not have been substituted.(8 )
Jones - Worked very hard but still a bit off top form. Was very involved.(7.5)
Scotland - Missed him for the whole first half. Has to link up better with Jones and midfielders. I would have started with Glen.(4)
Tinto - Shows talent but not up to this level as yet to start (based on this performance). I would try him off the bench. (5)
Birchal - Did not do much during time on field.
Glen - Provided something different on top but long ball being played did not suit his game.
Samuel - Decent showing and well taken chance on goal.
Stern - I think we missed him alot with the no. of chances we had ... proven finisher
