We didn't need to concede 7. It didn't need to be record setting.

Was shocked that we weren't better organized defensively.

Who is the fete-match fella on the field ? #4.  I 66 and I want a tryout. I don’t know if he good or not , cause he can’t keep up.  I feel he was good until the lay off. Where the Cyrus and other defender haters ?
The rest of the defense waiting for help, not realizing them is the defense, them is the help that not coming.

He would have gotten cussed out in fete match. He is a CB and haven't been in position.

Long time fellas

See nothing has changed with our football.

Unfit. Speed of play still not up to international level. Lack of tactical understanding when defending in small groups. Basic decision making poor. Fugly kit (would have been better in red).

The motive behind these developments are very transparent and show that FIFA stands for corruption. They allow the people who run up the bill to leave the bar, but the people who came in to work on paying the bill get arrested?
This is pure corruption.

I just have to look at that picture and know those girls won't beat anybody,they look too "girly",can't we find some butch looking females,lesbians and those kinds,the teams that do well are usually packed with them,good examples are England and the USA,and looking at some other countries you don't need anyone to tell you.Serious business...

Dude haven't you seen Karchaoui, Cascarino twins, Diani, Press, Morgan, they all girly and yet top players.  :rotfl: I get what you're saying though.

I think is time to move these tournament from the US. The visa requirements are srewing up the rest of Concacaf. Our officials are guilty of some incompetence, but the visas requirement are weakening the already weak smaller countries.

I never understood FIFA allowing countries who deny players visa to host events.

Open Screening begins on July 31 for Women’s Olympic Team.
TTFA Media.

Opening Screening for the Trinidad and Tobago Women’s Olympic team selection will commence on July 31st at the Ato Boldon Stadium from 4:30pm.

Head Coach Stefan De Four currently in Panama with the Women’s Under 17 team will oversee the screening upon his return to T&T.

“These sessions are opened to all senior and under 20 players who are eligible to represent the country in the Olympic qualifiers either through parentage or as a citizen and have an interest in doing so,” Defour told TTFA Media.

We have players who are already in the system but these open screening sessions is for players who have an interest and want to make themselves available for selection.” Players are asked to walk with their training gear and those who have not yet represented the country are required to walk with a form of identification.

The 2020 CONCACAF Final Round of Olympic qualifying is scheduled to take place in February. Concacaf will release further details on the qualifying schedule in due course.

Meantime, open Screening for selection to the Elite Developmental Group for Under 12 girls will also continue this Saturday from 8:30am at the Ato Boldon Stadium. All players born on or after January 1st 2007 are invited and are required to walk with a form of identification, red shirt, black pants and black socks.

How about they start by contacting players who's already in the system? Just a suggestion.

Was talking to a coach who said there have been some complaints from some foreign born parents that they're sending their kids to T&T and are not getting a professional reception. Some even paid their own way to train/play and coaches are not making an effort to integrate them into the team. So we will see how thing go as we move forward.

DL, do the honorable thing and resign. It's not working out. This is rubbish football.
15 Losses, 5 wins and 5 draws. From quarter finals of GC and Hex to out in the group stages without scoring a single goal. Kiss group A and B goodbye in the Concacaf nations league and kiss the Hex goodbye. Without rankings in FIFA, all our players will remain in the rubbish league with Dennis Lawrence the failure coach that won't resign. Talk about Hero to Villain.
in all fairness to dennis the man has been playing pure away games mate. Him and the team had to do some rough traveling away from home in the orient in the middle east and in europe, how the hell hes going to have a good record playing so far away from home on every fifa date, and that’s because the federation has no money to host anyone. my beef with dennis is that he insist with players who has shown that they’re incapable and ignores players who could possibly make a difference.

I don’t understand why he has isolated boatswain, that lad had some potential and looked dangerous every time he plays yet he sticks with one dimensional winchester and Nathan Lewis who in all his competitive starts can’t find a single goal. he has all but ignored Greg Ranjitsingh who I’m sure is much better than the two goats we have, when will he give the lad a shot? it’s things like this that infuriates me about dennis lawrence.

This team is screaming out for a physically strong hold up player like Boatswain up top. That's why he was not even included in the 40 man provisional squad. This team knocks the ball sideways at the back (I guess our version of possession football) and then lumps it forward to either Nathan Lewis, Molino or Garcia. None of which plays that type of football. Almost always they don't win the header or are out muscled by the opposition defense.

Imagine Curacao, Martinique, Guyana and Bermuda have all scored goals and looked more organised than we have.  :'(

We have to learn how to play a long driven air ball with and without back spin. Them high, slow, floating ball forward is the worst thing I see.

Then, why hire a foreign coach if the primary material is not of serviceable quality?

Spend that foreign coach money on coach education and regional centers.

General Discussion / Dominican Republic
« on: June 23, 2019, 08:01:08 PM »
Anyone following the reports of tourists dying suddenly in the DR? The reports are 10 but following reports on Instagram and Twitter it seems to be much higher.

A 10th American has died while vacationing in the Dominican Republic

(CNN) A man from New York died while vacationing in the Dominican Republic earlier this month, according to a US State Department official, making him the 10th American tourist to have died during or after their stay in the Caribbean nation.

The official confirmed the death in response to questions from CNN about media reports regarding the man, whose family said he suddenly became ill and died last Monday.

The State Department official did not offer details on the man's identity or cause of death, but a family member identified him as Vittorio Caruso, 56, of Glen Cove, Long Island, according to CNN affiliate News 12 Long Island.

Caruso's sister-in-law, Lisa Maria Caruso, told News 12 Long Island that Vittorio Caruso died after suffering respiratory distress and possibly a heart attack while on vacation.

The family received a phone call saying Caruso was sick, she said. Minutes later, they received a second call telling them he had died, the station reported.
According to Lisa Maria Caruso, her brother-in-law was enjoying part of his retirement in the Dominican Republic after he sold a Glen Cove pizza shop he'd owned with his brother for the past 12 years, News 12 Long Island reported.

CNN has reached out to Caruso's family for comment.

The Dominican Republic National Police confirmed to CNN that Caruso died at a hospital in Santo Domingo. According to police, he'd been receiving medical attention since June 11.

He died of respiratory failure, police said, citing the physician. An autopsy is pending.

The spate of deaths has led some Americans to wonder whether they should cancel upcoming trips to the Dominican Republic. But officials there have tried to assure travelers the deaths are isolated events.
CNN has previously reported that the deaths could potentially be related to alcohol. The FBI is helping local authorities with toxicology tests in at least three of the recent deaths.

Sunday, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana said it was removing liquor dispensers from guest room minibars. The resort said the decision was made independently and not as a result of two deaths that occurred at its property. Source

From no coach to yes a coach just as the rumors said. Ah yes....


They can't help tripping over themselves. Stay quiet and don't address the rumors until you are ready to make an announcement. Or, address the rumors while making the announcement earlier than you wanted.

There's so much distrust towards the FA and yet they keep shooting themselves in the foot. Seems there's no leadership.

Lawrence has a terrible record, and I really wanted him to do well having been mentored by Martinez for so long, but alas we don't have Belgium quality players

But isn't he playing like Martinez in the earlies? Sideways and backwards, but very limited going forward.

So what’s on your menu elan ? “Chicken Surprise”...surprise no chicken? What you seeing that Lawrence not seeing ? Tell him the recipe for success, if he blind, he might be able to hear. We hope.  ???

 ;D ;D ;D ;D

Chicken surprise or surprise chicken  :rotfl:

I would make a cook-up with them ingredients cause is a little bit of everything. The main thing I would have ensure the pot have is some Moruga scorpion. Panama would have it hot going in and coming out. Instead we end up with a bland stale gyro.

Long-term. This is beyond a TTMNT coach. We need grassroots development to develop the ingredients for the pot we want to bubble at the senior level.

Some of y'all ah little to rough..y'all does TALK ah damn good game doh..Not saying the team was not bad, but to say the boys played total garbage is just not true. Lawrence has to work with what he sees and has, and the players have to work with what they have and get..I feel many ah y'all should be players and coaches, cause y'all real know this game from in front the tv.
 Anyway I also have criticism and a suggestion(might be totally wrong and probably not worth anything), 4, 1 depth/width space1 ,2 width space, 1 depth space,1 is not a proper formation for full field...
RB                                                LB
          DM        Space                 DM

RM               Space         Space          LM

            Space                F
        Space                   F                 Space

might be good for half field practice, as the spaces won't seem that big..What I don't understand doh, is we played big field warm-up games , it must have been evident in our lack of numbers on attack and opposing midfield attacks on our defence.  The 2 wingers have to come back on possession to get the ball from wingbacks and sometimes to assit in coverage, otherwise the defensive mids have to much ground to cover, leaving our whole defensive players overwhelmed and late, whenever a team attacks with numbers.  Of Course the guys would have to play better, but I saw what they tried to do and not do, and Panama was having none of it. They attacked the spaces and killed us on adjustments with numbers, and defended with numbers..For me, it's their mids that had us in a mess..our mids was trying to cover to much ground...to repeat, IMO, we need our wingers to come in and back more and our central mids to be not as defensive, or play 1 defensive mid.
Good luck next game guys. Go T&T.

If Lawrence has to work with what he sees and what he has and this is what he comes up with, he needs glasses cause vision surely lacking. He have been playing around with these ingredients for how long now and still can't cook a bess pot. If you have ingredients for curry, yuh cyah try to make pelau. Unless you ah mad chef. Lawrence must see that he doesn't have (or choose) the players to play the way he maybe want to play.

Forget all that. We had no urgency at no point in the game. Our approach was one of "meh". We never tried to win the game. This game was a very confusing game.

This was a sad outing from a team who've had great preparation. Basic things this team failed at all night. We adjusted nothing in 90 minutes. We kept playing around the back into the wingers and then lost the ball. In the 88 minute we were still doing this. Panama just allowed us to play the ball into the winger and then shut the door. Why didn't Lawrence adjust our strategy?

Our defenders are terrible with the ball at their feet. Why are we trying to play out when Cyrus (any of our defenders)can't use the ball? Cyrus can only do one thing and is tackle the ball away. That's it.  Alvin Jones looked like he never saw the game before. Very disappointed in Hyland. He's been at it for to long to still be this invisible. No leadership. We didn't even try to win corners at the end of the game.

I don't get this. It's very perplexing  :frustrated: watching our approach. We had no purpose. None. Nada. Zilch.

Is d same shit through d middle d problem through d wings, is d....um...."build up" if yuh could call it dat, to f'cking slow must ah d time, big gaps from left to right but no switchin play or it too slow....out wide is d best solution for dis team....dey jus doin everyting wrong and nobody reading to game to direct d play

Garcia and Lewis should have run the wing ragged with pace and skill.
