Football / FIFA considers World Cup changes
« on: August 14, 2010, 10:57:44 AM »
BERLIN -- FIFA president Sepp Blatter says soccer's governing body will consider eliminating ties in all World Cup games.

Blatter said Saturday on Germany's Focus weekly that the dramatic change would make the tournament more interesting. He says the change could involve going to a shootout after 90 minutes of regulation or adding sudden-death overtime.

Sudden-death overtime was used in the knockout rounds of the 1998 and 2002 World Cups. FIFA then reverted to its previous rule of having teams play a full 30 minutes of overtime if tied at the end of regulation in the knockout rounds.

First-round games always have ended in draws if tied at the end of regulation.


Imagine Socawarriors holding Poland to ah draw in we first game in Brazil in 2014 and winning on PKs....3 points to start de campaign!!!!

Friday, December 5; Jarrett Park, Montego Bay, Jamaica: Jamaica was a class apart in their 4-0 drubbing of Grenada to underline their Alpha status in Group A of the Digicel Caribbean Championships.
 Having already secured all three points from their come from behind victory in the opener against Barbados, the Reggae Boyz continued to put the disappointment of World Cup Qualifying behind them with what can only be described as a training exercise against an outgunned Grenada.
 Grenada had been giant killers just a few nights before, with a stunning upset victory against tournament favourites Trinidad & Tobago, however, from the offset the Spice Boys were made to look decidedly bland against a Rampant Reggae Boyz.
 The opening five minutes of the fixture made Grenada’s diagnosis quite clear, they were showing far too much respect to their hosts and were made to pay after only six minutes when Stoke City’s Demar Phillips charged his way past two defenders on his way into the box before sliding a pass to defender Eric Vernan, who cut onto his left to finish calmly and register his first goal for the National senior team.
 Both of Jamaican flanks were working overtime with a steady supply of wide play from the flawless Demar Phillips and Dane Richards. It was Richards that would be the supply line for the second goal when his corner was powered home by an aerially underestimated Luton Shelton to take the lead to 2-0 in minute seventeen, and eventually help himself to the man of the match award.
 Rudolph Austin went close in minute 25 when a clearance fell to him 30 yards out, Austin chested before unfurling a volley that forced a spectacular save from the busy Desmond Noel. Andy Williams was next on the shot conveyor belt with a 25 yarder that again tested the goalkeeper. Luton Shelton would round out the first half’s accurate shooting display with another great solo effort: when he cut inside from the left channel wrong footing the defender before rifling right footed at the target.
 The second half began with Grenada showing a little bit more Granite at the back, closing the gaps and getting more physical with the Jamaican selection. The time was ripe for a demolitions expert and who better than the “Bomber” Andy Williams, his 25 yard TNT detonated between Noel’s open legs, and rolled past him into the net for Jamaica’s third.
 Chances for Grenada were a rarity but Fimbar Williams went as close as you can get when after neat footwork in the box, he managed to squeeze of a shot only to see it cannon off the crossbar.
 The fixture was eventually put to bed when Demar Phillips, who had impressed for 90 minutes, latched on to substitute Roland Dean’s good wide work to graduate the score to four and round off the route.
 John Barnes’ Jamaica now sit atop the Group A standings with a perfect record while Grenada find themselves demoted to third, as the Digicel Caribbean Championships continues.

Football / The more things change???
« on: October 14, 2008, 05:46:31 AM »
Just a little humor TnT style.

Warner told the squad earlier in the day that the TTFF would double the players' match wage.

"What a show of character, determination, fight and belief. What those guys displayed out there is what we need more of in our be able to combat the problems we are facing today. We are all proud of the efforts. Never before did one point have so much value," Warner said of the 0-0 draw against the Central Americans.

"I have told them that their match fees have been doubled for what they did against Guatemala and they deserve every bit of it."

Football / Jack Warner fires back against numerous allegations.

Football / FIFA President wants life-time ban for dangerous tackles
« on: March 07, 2008, 09:24:31 AM »
Friday, Mar 7, 2008 6:45 AM ET

[REF WATCH] In the wake of the horrific foul by Birmingham defender Martin Taylor that shattered the leg of Arsenal's Eduardo, which earned Taylor a three-game suspension, FIFA president Sepp Blatter said that players guilty of deliberately dangerous tackles should be banned from the game.

"Dangerous tackling is one of the most important issues in soccer at the moment," Blatter said. "Players who do this kind of thing intentionally should be banned from the game."

Blatter called for stricter refereeing and implicated coaches.

"The mechanism where this happens today is obvious," he said. "The pressure on the coach or manager to win is such that he encourages his players to go for victory at any cost. There is no microphone in the locker room, so he says, 'Go, go, go'. Until when? Until the point where the referee intervenes.

"Some referees have in their mind, 'How long can I let the game go without giving a card?' They think they are good referees if the game flows for 20 minutes without an interruption. But the referees must give yellow cards or red cards in the first three or four minutes if necessary and we will call for them to do so. Then the referee will have peace on the field.

"At the moment it is just not working."

Blatter added: "Attacking somebody is criminal, whether it happens on a soccer field or elsewhere. It is a crime and should be treated as such."

I especially like the last paragraph.

Football / TnT U-23-1 versus Jabloteh U-19 3
« on: July 06, 2007, 04:08:48 AM »
McComie takes charge of T&T U-23s.
By: Ian Prescott (Express).

Michael McComie has taken charge of the Trinidad and Tobago under-23 squad in the absence of head coach Jan Van Diesen, who is in Holland where he will soon undergo a back operation.
Dutchman Van Diesen has been diagnosed as suffering from a disc problem and returned to his homeland soon after T&T's participation in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the United States.
McComie said yesterday it was "touch and go" whether Van Diesen will be available to be with the Under-23 team when they contest the first leg of the 2008 Olympic qualifiers, which take place from August 29-September 5 in Suriname.
McComie was given some tips by national senior head coach Wim Rijsbergen yesterday during a practise match at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva, where the under-23s faced CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh's reserve squad (under-19) under overcast conditions.
The national under-23 squad had plenty firepower on show, including Kendall Jagdeosingh, the North East Stars forward, Caledonia AIA winger Hayden Tinto, Ricardo Peltier and W Connection's Shane Calderon.
Also among them was 20-year-old Roland Gavin, who lives in England but was invited to train with the T&T squad after being spotted by coaches.
But, they found Jabloteh more than a handful. Coached by former national player Angus Eve, the club team rallied from trailing by a goal at the half to beat the under-23 footballers 3-1.
The Jabloteh youngsters looked much more motivated on the moist surface and destroyed the nationals on the flanks.
The under-23 selectees led 1-0 through a first half goal by Jagdeosingh. But Eve's youths levelled at 1-1 just five minutes into the second half when Devon Jamerson found the far corner with an angled shot from the left of the penalty area.
Soon after, Joel Russell scored an almost exact replica to put Jabloteh ahead 2-1, before Elijah Manners broke through on the right flank to also angle a shot across goal and into the far corner.
Afterwards, McComie said the under-23s were playing just their third practise match and the coaches wanted to have a better look at the players for selection purposes.
He said the squad was still not fixed and will be trimmed from the current 33 players in training to 25, consisting of three keepers and 22 outfield players.
At the end of next week's training session, a final squad will be announced and will go into camp for a week.
They are also due to play an international warm-up on August 22 before going to the tournament.
McComie said they had also been checking on playing conditions for the qualifying tournament.
"We play in Suriname. We understand it is a small field and also on Astroturf. So, we are just taking a look at the players. There is no fixed team. We will cut down the squad and also invite a couple of other players we think can be a good addition to the team. We will do that until we get the best possible team," he told the Express.

IN CONTROL: National Under-23 player Ricardo Peltier, left, attempts to evade Elton John of CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh's under-19 squad in a warm-up match yesterday morning at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva. The Jabloteh line-up beat the T&T U-23s 3-1.

« on: November 16, 2005, 12:23:52 PM »
just in case any idiots come and try to rain on we parade....

LAW-12 Fouls and misconduct.

19. As the goalkeeper releases the ball to kick it into play, an opponent intercepts it before it touches the  ground. IS THIS PERMITTED??????

NO!!!!!! IT is an offence to prevent a goalkeeper releasing the ball from his hands. THE RELEASING OF THE BALL FROM HIS HANDS AND THE KICKING OF THE BALL IS CONSIDERED TO BE A SINGLE ACTION.


Let there be partying in the streets of TnT and anywhere in the world whey yuh have a Trinbagonian livin. Bless!

big-up all forumites, thanks for all the insights and entertainment....anyway, it's halftime in the honduras v costa rica game, honduras-3, costa rica-1, two of the hondurans goals were "toe-punch"/ "toe-poke" goals. yuh feel the goal-scorers, their teamates or country-men/women care whether it's a "toe-punch" goal they socre?  exactly..because, ah goal is ah goal is ah goal.....where ah going with this? we-trinbagonians-doh care if yuh score ah "toe-punch" goal, yuh hah the keeper alone to beat, put yuh head down-or keep it up-and try to bust the ball with yuh toe if yuh throway, so what, yuh woulda throway anyway...if yuh flick the ball over ah colombian head in they penalty area, doh wait to get ah good shot,try to bust the ball with yuh toe......ent...yuh feel ah is just a newbie talking ta ta, ask ronaldo, ronaldinho, or them two honduran who ah sure going thru to the semi-final. tha is meh two-cents. ah sure real people-who know football-will agree with me.....
