There was no supposition (I asked what the yardstick was). The mention of ethnic representation was a layer I added ('let me add some fuel').

You also stated you wanted ALL European teams to go down (without having referenced ethnic diversity, but now you seem to be walking that back).

Anyway, I addressed Brazil specifically, not the Europeans. Your response doesn't treat Brazil.

Those clarifications aside, I understand your perspective. Just cautioning that the thought that Argentina gets the gold medal for racism isn't necessarily the comprehensive gold medal winning performance you suggest it is.

  Teams  I would love to see go down-
- All European Teams
- Argentina- most racist South American  Country
- USA

 Great to see that the first 5 goals for England  in its first game- Five different black players- Yeah
 Love the defeat  that Germany- Argentina Belgium suffered
 Love the fact that the less physical teams  like Japan and South Korea bringing pace
 African nations need to step up
Ecuador- nice surprise

What's your yardstick? Rigorous examination may lead you to revisit support for Brazil or reconsidering exclusion of Brazil from the list.

Let me add some fuel: you mentioned Ecuador. Compare Ecuador to Brazil and ask consistently how come the most afro-populated nation on the continent has a relative paucity of black players in its ranks?

Bias, deception, arrogance, superiority, decadence and willful ignorance all masked by the presumed knowledge imputed to the usual favored accents.

For the first time ever in a WC 4 of the 5 African teams will be coached by local Africans. Walid Regragu - Morocco, Rigobert Song - Cameroon, Otto Addo(German born Ghanian - Ghana, Jaleel Kadri - Tunisia, Aliou Cisse - Senegal.

As in the case of Addo, Regragui was also born in Europe. Other than that they have strong elements of an indigenous pedigree.

Addo delivered a really impressive, frank and fluid interview with the BBC some weeks ago. Piqued my attention. Well worth the listen.

Both Regragui and Cisse are on the current CAF Pro License course, which is ludicrously dominated by Moroccan candidates. Morocco is ramping up for some happenings. Watch de ride.


The Royal family and government are spearheading an ambitious program for sport, film, IT , solar and mining etc...

They are spearheading EVERYTHING.

Arguably, Cameroun is worse than Costa Rica. Their saving grace is that they are playing an opponent inferior to Spain.

I think the Mods should at least pin the thread as the biggest event in world football that only happens once every 4 years is going on.
Having said that, watching Costa Rica get totally outclassed right here by Spain, like they don't even belong on the same field, really brings home the point of where we start to rebuild in TnT. 
I think I now coming around to see where others was saying for a long time -- maybe our phase 1 should be the U17WC -- work hard on producing a team that could belong on the same field there.

So all this time yuh didn't realize you were at the scene of a trainwreck?

Odds on that header getting into the back of the net in a T&T jersey?

Anyhow, winless opposition ...

So we won the second half but we didn’t win the game.”

TM, winning a half but losing the match sounds like the sanctuary and solace sought by Manchester United fans.

Pres could have gone 2-1 but squandered two opportunities that would have had a bearing on the complexion of the match going into HT had they scored and been able to manage the game to the whistle. One was a good ball swung by Cooper into the area and the other was a failure to recognize when a shot was on.

What's the scouting report on Derrell Garcia? Would like to know more.

Plenty action for Garcia in that game. Besides the goal, he had one cleared off the line, put another one in that was offside, his teammate shoulda passed earlier, he had a great cross to the far post but his teammate sent it straight at the keeper.
On another note Gervinho played for the opponent.

Any shirt exchange?

That loss today is adding to the emerging rumblings calling for Xavi's head. Quite the day. Right now Betis is on the heels of the lead pack. They just took the lead against Almeria. Pellegrini is silently being consistent.

Nothing wrong with being nostalgic. In fact everyone on this site who hope for a second coming of 2006 is nostalgic. .

Alright so Hart will never be returning from what it sounds like asylum. Thank you

I am not SH's spokesperson.

Maybe VB could write the book on an eventual triumphal return and vindication, but a Hart return seems to ME to be a Nobel Peace Prize sort of suffering that not everyone would sign up for. If dahis not de case doh, instead of looking for a TD, Hadad should just have called Kendall Walkes to jump in de saddle again. Amidst a few choice words, something other than nostalgia might probably be the first thing that comes to Walkes' mind doh. And yeah, I am not Kendall Walkes' spokesperson.

That aside, ah feel yuh slightly blending ambition with nostalgia. Many posters here remember 2006 fondly but they do not latch on to any hope of us returning to that platform.

Breds, he better off riding for ah St. Pierre and Miquelon than heading to the site of the trauma and unpaid salary. HFX acted with a brand of grace unknown in T&T. Patriotism cut nuff throats.

If salary is the issue then I see what you mean

I find yuh being exceptionally nostalgic.

Getting their finances together is NOT having their finances together. Whatever shift is occurring at the TTFA constitutes temporarily moving away from the edge of the precipice, not abandoning the precipice entirely.

Also --- Forget about the FANTASTICAL notion that Eve would play 2nd fiddle.  Why should he at this point by the way?

Behave yuhself. Push come to shove, the TTFA has an in-house ready-made solution. Corneal could succeed Eve or any successor to Eve.

With DJW long gone, just maybe. .

Before or after hell freezes over?

You don't think a return is possible? I'm pretty sure many are entertaining the idea. . No DJW, TTFA getting their finances together, and Eve (2nd to Hart). If Hart is still owed some money, get him on the phone and resolve it. I'm sure Hart will be open to it.

I think this might be the storyline we need.

Great, but what's in it for Hart?

What's in it for Hart? Hmm, let's see.. A job :)

Tajikistan 115 ranking lends some credence to the ranking system.

How so? Were they notably inferior?

I haven't seen the September ranking, but last month they were above 115. We should have the aim of entering the 90s and figuring out an ascent to cracking 70.
Nope, just meant that the teams on the field didn't look leagues apart. Always wondered about that in terms of teams from different federations that don't face each other often.

Deceptive because they were not reliant on the same tools, but don't be deceived.

The TT goal was a good goal. The Thailand goal was exceptional. Molino last minute attempted over kick would have been great if it went in.  The best thing about the game is the TT uniform. The jersey looks exquisite. 

what about the first goal ?

Destined for immortality on a bloopers reel would be my guess.

Based on the highlight alone, TJK should be and soon would be ranked higher than many teams in its region. We on the other hand might take ah lil while.

Based on the match. PERIOD.

A perception of parity is not one with which I would be in agreement.

Run of the mill goal that looks especially glittery due to the highlighted camera angle (behind goal). However, if yuh check it, the goalscorer was given AMPLE time and space in which to dispense his poison. For that, I would call JESSE WILLIAMS to account. For starters.

BOL growing on yuh? 🙂 Yeah, the jersey caught the eye.

I could live with the shot being 'exquisite' and the jersey being 'exceptional'. :devil:

Two sent off in WoLF fracas...Rangers, Police, Defence Force advance to semis
T&T Express


...

But it was not for brilliant individual goals, but other reasons that the match stood out — mainly shoddy refereeing and a brawl between players. Referee Garfield Weekes did neither the league or himself proud. His questionable officiating and his lack of maintaining control contributed to tempers flaring and physical confrontations between opposing players.

Despite the theatrics, Forbes had two earlier incidents which could have seen her either sent off, or a penalty awarded against Rangers. Weekes failed to punish Forbes or her team when the goalkeeper completely missed the ball and handed Club Sando striker Khadidra Debesette a “clothes line” -- catching Debesette by the neck with an outstretched arm, while inside the penalty area.

Later, Weekes also let play continue when Forbes charged erratically out of the penalty area, again getting none of the ball when upending goal-bound Kelly-Ann Williams with a vicious tackle. It was at this point, following Weekes’ lack of decisive action, that events spiralled out of control.

A team official walked onto the playing field. Cooper protested about Forbes’ tackle and was also having a verbal spat with another player, Aaliyah Pascall, when Forbes approached with a confrontational posture. Cooper pushed Forbes. Weekes red-carded Cooper, who took it well, touching the referee gently on his chest before proceeding to make her way off the field.

Weekes then approached the penalty area and also issued a red card to Forbes. She did not take her expulsion as well and immediately took off running toward the half-line to engage Cooper in another brief physical confrontation, before team members from both clubs quickly separated the two women.

Under what rational disciplinary assessment would that conduct merit sitting out ONE match?

What the highlights do not show is a patch of first half play in which the team was doing uncharacteristic things under what has been the Eve brand thus far (even considering Tajikistan's cat and mouse approach). Might have been the best attacking spell of Eve's tenure and it is disappointing it wasn't built upon.

On the chances
Perhaps it was too much to ask of L. Garcia to lay the ball off to Molino.  ::) Yeah, he has scored in that angle situation countless times ... almost textbook for him, but the counterintuitive pass to Molino had a better chance at rippling the net.
...

Powder's failure to convert is clear to Powder himself, so not much to be said there ... other than why didnt't he appeal for a penalty? No one here notice the handling of the ball?

One of the most criminal moments of the match was Molino being dispossessed and there being no cover such that we had an opponent running 70 yards with the ball with his teammates gradually incorporating and favorably shifting the numerical "balance" by the time Tajikistan arrived in our penalty area. Perhaps I was dreaming, but how is it that players abandoned their assignments with such ease? That stated, Molino isn't without responsibility. Glaring nonsense.

Despite not looking to be at his cutting edge best, Frenderup came close to cleaning up the equalizer. Certainly cleaned up the mess that left him exposed point blank range on a free header.
