Its been a while since I have been on here. I am happy to see that the team has out themselves in a position to qualify for the World Cup in Canada. Now they must finish the task at hand. It won't be easy. However, they have the pieces to get it done. I must admit I am left to think where women's football could be with a little support. I hope these performances provides the platform for the powers that be to get behind this program once and for all :)

Too many people expect to see the Ronny of old. He is no longer that type of player. However, he is turned himself into a player who can orchestrate the Brazilian attack with his pin point passes. He is developing a very good relationship with Neymar and last night he showed why Mano still believes in him

Observer I couldn't agree with you more. However its a practice that has been going on now for sometime. When I worked with the U13 regional teams and the U14 youth national teams I was able to influence the additions of some of the more creative youth players that are still in the youth programs. They are the next generation of players. One of them is currently in injured in the senior team and will be back in the near future. However, many of my associates still believe in the physical components of the game so they would push through some of the bigger stronger faster players. WE SHOULD NOT BE IN A PLAYOFF SYSTEM TO QUALIFY. It shows how much we have fallen off on the World Stage. This is a trend I had been discussing with my peers within the national team program for the past 5 years. So if some of the results( U17's don't qualify, U20's lose to Nigeria at the U20 World Cup and now this) during the last year doesn't bring about any changes we will have to get accustom being in the also ran when it comes to the Europeans, South Americans and the East Asians. The Africans are also steadily improving and well the CONCACAF top teams keep nipping on our heels. We will defeat italy here at home. I am not worried about that. But we maybe in for a rude awakening at the World Cup if we don't get out sh*t together

Fellas we don't have to hate. the truth of the matter is US was upset by Mexico. They are still one of the top teams in the world. The Italians did as much as they can to compete. However, the victory was never in doubt. We will take care of business here at home and will be the last team to qualify

Well as see meh boy boy CKI step in and drop real knowledge as usual so I won't say too much. we are always on the same page so when he speaks I does feel like its my words. I will however respond to the question that was asked Nyman 18 what does the 90's football with the countries you have mentioned compared to football today in respects to the women's game.Just so I understand your thought process? The point I was making had to do with Women playing football in Trinidad since the middle 80's at a time when the world was still grasping women's football. Now look at some of these same countries and see where they have taken the game and what thy have been getting out of their players. For me if the right things were put in place Trini could have been a power house in the CONCACAF region. To see we have not made the strides that could have been made from that point to now is really hard for me to handle. This has more to do with the administration and less to to do with the players. To add to your point Soccer 19. I was actually very pleased with the players I saw against Mexico. My problem has never been with the players. I have brought women's team to Trinidad in the past and have played and coached against some of these same players and coaches. Since the first time I did it i was impressed with the players. My beef has always been with the administrators and the coaches who have been given the charge to right with by these players. To wear the national team colors should be an honor. So the work rate and playing like its your last game should be expected. Once we give these players the proper structure to execute their craft, Trini might just be surprised by the football these ladies are truly capable of.

Well said ck1. I am tired of this concept that we fighting hard and competing so we must be improving. Since I was living in Trinidad back in the 90's we had women's football. Where was Mexico, US, The Europeans, South Americans etc back in the 90's as it relates to women's football. I am glad men like you and I not drinking that watered down cool aid with no sugar  :rotfl:

And one wonders why the Women's program can't go forward. Some of us accept mediocrity and call it improvement. The team isn't losing bad anymore so it progress. Is it a sign of getting better? Sure it is !. However, if a team create 12 in 1990 and score 10 and 10 years after they create 12 and score 3. Doesn't it also reflect on that team. The reality is simply this. There is a lot to work with on this team. It's no secret there are some very talented players on this team and Mallon has been leading the charge. Its no secret either. She is a very talented player who spend some serious years honing in on her craft at South Carolina in a tough SEC conference and then as a professional in Europe. When I watch this team, I see a fairly disorganized team. So folks that has more to do with the coaching staff. As coaches we have to create a culture to have our team play as much as a unit.

There is a troubling culture that is being promoted that will ensure that our football don't progress. It has to do with how the Women's team is playing right now. Kick and run leads to disorganization. I am tired of hearing about the team have real fight and how hard they are working. Yes they are foundations but when we throw them out we miss out on some of the real problems.
1. Possession the ball
2. Movement off the ball
3. Timing of Runs
4. Small Group Defending
5. Overall Team Defending
6. Attacking and Defensive Shape
7. Goal Keeping( We have a  GK coach who needs to address certain issues like cross balls, movement of feet to make saves, Communication with players on defense to maintain organization that will lead to less shots etc

These are just some of the stuff we have to get better at. You will be surprised by the level of play this team will get to if these things are address along with other areas of the game. I will continue to reiterate. There are some very talented players on this team. They just need direction

I agree with the team improvement. However, the level of football this team could be playing with a few tweeks here and there. We not suppose to be giving up goals like these goals on the international level. The 2nd one was worst

We are too disorganized to beat Mexico. Doh blame de keeper. Take that up with her GK coach. She has been raw for the past three years and it seems like they are not addressing the little things that will take her to the next level, Until they teach these girls how to keep the ball through good support and ball movement instead of de boom kick we are not going a place. Trini is finally at the pint where we can compete with some of the best both physically and athletically. So lets focus on things like principles of attack and defense. We should be pushing players high on that Mexican defense to avoid them from building out of the back. We also need to stop hyping up these teams on they hard work. We need to hype them up on smart work. Terms like they have real fight and they work hard takes too much precedence sometimes. Don't get me wrong it is needed to be successful. However, we need to focus more on the football. It is sorely lacking. To simply say well we don;t get beat bad anymore is a sign of success. Well for me that is played out. There is a trend in women's football throughout the world. The teams with a solid history of mens football are progressing nicely. They try to emulate their men. We have some good players. Now they just need to be coached/organized on the field

CK1 I see you drop some knowledge and not many men take them facts seriously. Pellers should be commended for ensuring that Trini had a fit team with some physical gifts. They competed well and we must recognize and acknowledge this. However, that is where the praise ends. When you have a program for over two years and they can't out together 4 passes consistently that is not saying much. The mere fact that fellas settling for that it really shows the state of football in Trini on the Women's side. We were suppose to beat Chile. Our physical attributes contributed to the victory. Pellers will frustrate those senior women soccer. He did just that with some of the Canadian women. Mention Pellers to Christine St Clair( Canada's top striker) and all hell will break loose. I like pellers he is a good guy. however, do I believe he is the answer for Trini football moving forward? Hell no!

I must admit I am a bit surprised that Spain is in the final four. After spending a week in Real Madrid and seeing them train for a week at the Spanish Soccer Federation. I didn't see enough to make me feel that they could be a contender. What a difference 6 months can make.

Unfortunately Pellers is a voom kick specialist. However, the good he has done should be duplicated and we try to move the women's program forward
