Football / 2022 CONCACAF WC Qualifiers Thread
« on: September 04, 2021, 03:37:47 AM »
Judging by the results of the first matches played last night 03-09-21,Jamaica was the only team that lost to Mexico,their winner came in the 89th minute,a very surprising result was El Salvador v USA draw,all the rest were draws.These results are not surprising because slowly,but surely the weaker teams are catching up.
   I would just like to say, we didn't do too bad in our recent failures, when you consider all the upheavals our football has gone through over the last 5 years or more.It is also safe to say that we wouldn't have had a team good enough to beat any of those teams that are presently competing in the Hex,purely because of non football issues.We must try and put a great effort in our approach to the Caribbean ChampionsTrophy,this could be a new start.I am growing older with the thought of,"how the once best football team in the Caribbean can fall so far behind the the rest",that needs some serious explanation.

DeeksI said I won't post again but I respect you and a 2 or 3 others.I wasn't planning to offend, but when I said Jamaicans say "we talk too much",I tell them is allyuh who talk too much.I am up against about 5 ah dem.Sometimes I wish TT can ram all the crap that they talk down their throats,when we lose they know and wait for meh.Where are all those ballers that we used to produce,what happen to that culture.When I came to England I played Sunday morning football in Scrubs Lane in Shephers Bush,most of the blokes were Jamaicans,many would ask me "way yuh fram bway",when I replied  Trinidad,they would say,no wonder "yuh so good".I am just pointing out how well the rest of the Caribbean knew about our football culture,we lost our pride or what,I dunno man.I find it's taking too long to get back even close to where were,maybe there's more to it than I know.Regards.

O Trinidad,you are poor,very poor.Jamaicans say we talk too much maybe they are right.You Trinidad bring tears to people's eyes,we support you on the grounds of yesteryear,no more I am done with that.I hope all the other facets of life is not so miserable and unhappy for people.I make this as my last post.Mark the date...14-07-21.Not another post. :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :(

That's the way to do it Mr.Eve,if you cannot win you don't lose,learn from  experiences and we don't have to go back very far,Bahamas 0 TT 0.       We only drop a "Bahamas" pon El Tricolor...sweeeet!!

I'm predicting a 1974 encore....a repeat performance of T&T over Mexico in the 1974 CONCACAF finale in Haiti.
T&T 4  Mexico 0..
Only this time around,  the 72-year old, star of the 1974 finale,  Warren Archibald will be watching somewhere in Brooklyn, of course not on the field.  LOL

Are you planning some special Haitian magic ;D to help TT,I will be happy if we are defeated 4-nil. :worried:

gawd on pitchI wasn't aware that we were missing so many starters,that being the case, we should be able to put up a better show when we have those missing players.I also share your sentiments about Muckette.I still feel Kerron Cummins can be useful for us,hopefully Eve will see the same things that we saw and try to put them right.

I think for this match we should get some credit,having lost the captain and Garcia, also missing his brother, add to that Aubrey David playing with a damaged chin,that wouldn't help him,it would hinder.After hearing so much about these countries playing with overseas players, makes you think they might be better than us,it's not so in many cases,so train and develop your own.In the football history of Trinidad the best years was when we had no foreigners,in the 70s when "we got done up good N proper" by Haiti,and again in the 90s by USA,denied a blatant penalty,no foreigners again.
   I cannot help but praise those penalty takers,it must be the best I have ever seen,I have to say bravo to them and the rest of the team.Some improvement is needed.

pull stones,Thanks for that response,and I now know why I read your posts whenever I see them,your love for the game shows by your posts,living in the Midlands also add some real flavour to what you write.I left TT in 68 very young but was football crazy,I thought TT was a great team and would be at World Cups every 4 years,you have explained why we have failed so often.I also think we are seen as foreigners when we do go back,that's true.As I say I love your spirit and wish you all the best,I live in London in Hampton.Best ah luck mate!

pull stones,I don't know what part of the world you live but you seem to have a sound knowledge of TT football and the "tapestry" that goes with it,considering what you said about TT coaches as opposed to foreign ones.I have lived in England and I don't know much but I sometimes feel that some TT coaches  show favouritism,I wasn't sure but now I feel it's true.Anyway I keep reading your posts to get the way things are going to be better informed,I enjoy reading you and 2 others,I always like a deeper understanding,for me it's an education.I sometimes wonder why I still worry about TT after all these years.

This is a football match sanctioned by FIFA and if we win we climb the standings,there's a lot of pride for every man involved,including the coach and manager.How can anyone say the match has no meaning.Let us just say that SKN played a player who,for some reason should not have been in their team,you do know they would be disqualified and TT would go top.Anyway so many things in life are important to those layers who played one of the best matches I have seen over the past few years,I for sure,didn't expect that,SKN did try some rough tactics but the boys didn't react.I we continue to improve,the great SKN brought back down to earth with a painful bump.

I cannot believe it's the same team,so easily could have been 2 or even 3.Show these Kitts and Nevis what they can expect when they start the next phase.

No manager could motivate such a bunch of idiots,most clueless, like it was the first time they ever stepped on a football pitch.The first thing I saw as everybody else,was the line of defenders Bahamas employed.We didn't even try to attack from the flanks,try and pull them out,we just tried once or twice,every attack was from the middle which suited Bahamas down to the ground,it just went on and on.We try the attack from the middle and they just tighten up their defence,didn't we have wingers,seems like it.
This match against St.Kitts should where our rebuilding starts,drop every man who was incapable of beating the 2nd or 3rd worst team in the world,all dem can do is pose and pretend to be footballers,most ah dem too big fuh dem boots,drop them all and start again.

We may still win this 1-0 and beat St.Kitts 2-1 and go on to beat teams like Costa Rica,Honduras,Mexico,USA and Jamaica,then top the Hex and qualify for WC 2022 .
This is the worst football I have ever had the misfortune to sit down and watch.What a load of dumbf**ks I had to watch,and I am talking about those shithounds playing for Trinidad.Not one of those even hold a ball and move it around just a little,they are all a load of planks,win or draw.

We should be using this match as a practice match instead of worrying about it,even if we play in practice mode we should still score 4 or 5,the real football starts on the 8th June 2021.

Should we be so overly worried about beating St.Kitts,we f**ked up against P.Rico and a lesson was learnt,just play the football we know we can,that is what we must do.I think every player plus the coach and manager knows exactly what is required.When allyuh worry I worry to,be positive and kick negativity outta de way.

What a shame our people never thought of leaving TT since the 60s like most West Indians did.I suppose life was too sweet for almost half of the population,the other half was too poor, to even think about going abroad.Every other Island including Guyana could call upon players who were born abroad, in better footballing countries.We better forget bout outsiders because the best teams we ever had was all Trinis born and bred,ah cyah forget The Strike Squad,and back in 1970 when were robbed by Haiti and their HENCHMEN.We eh got nobody abroad, and even when we have, they don't want to play for us.TBH, who in their right mind would want to play for TT if they read this MB :(

Man preparin he excuses from now.

As dey say....takin in front

If the team somehow surmounts these "impossible odds and adversity", it will be because of his superior training techniques and expertise.

Good tactic.
Well TBH I trust the Englishman more than Trini DL,he was taking TT down to a low.

Kevin Molino has done very little for TT and we keep hoping to see him every time we play,get Cummins in the team now and forget Molino.Let's hope TF go for K.Cummins,it was a sad day for TT football when somebody shoot the boy for nothing that really did put Cummins back by years,but I hope he plays again.

Luke Singh is 6ft 2inches and weighs 164 lbs,surely he should put on some weight in a couple years,I suppose his height makes him look slight.At the moment I can count several players in the EPL who is surely lighter than Luke Singh.

When we beat Guyana we celebrated,I didn't and was worried about our matches against St.Kitts &Nevis and this same P.Rico.In case people didn't recognise we were very lucky against Guyana,now yuh know.Although we got lucky goals against Guyana they themselves should have got 3,and secured a draw.Our defence is the worst I've seen for sometime,our mid field can't hold a ball for 5 seconds,we keep losing the ball,everything is wrong.TF or no one else can fix TT football anytime soon.This team is going no where,I have reason to believe that Guyana could still come back and top this group,they can't be unlucky again as they were against TT,who IMO played a crappy game but won ,luckily.We will be in need of plenty luck to beat St.Kitts & Nevis.

Yuh mention "composure",the best word to sum up quite a lot of our Mid Field game where we losing ball tooeasily,and as you say more composure needed up front.We won it with a team that didn't play the best football.

I feel sorry for our Trini players who appear to be suffering from so many ills in the TT setup,there always appear to be problems.I don't mind that they go to India because I feel, Indian football will improve as it definitely has been doing,you'd never expect India to get a draw with Nigeria,but let's forget that.Trini players in India would, or could be seen by scouts from countries much better than India.Egypt,Iran and most Arab countries all better than India,even European scouts can see them,next they could be out of India in better footballing countries.Igo back to the improvement of Indian football and some very surprising results,our boys are having to fight for their places,there are good players from Africa,Europe,South America etc.Anyway I always read your posts and I don't know why I am telling you all this,which you probably know.Football is full of emotions and I am growing old and older waiting for us to get to a position we once enjoyed,sometimes my feelings could be described as,"a drowning man clutching at straws".

Trini 2022Why should what you say "hit a nerve",to start with our football has been in the doldrums for how long,and talk about bacchanal with the people in charge,is always something wrong with this one or that one,I can go on.The fact is our boys who have gone to India will most likely get contracts quicker than those in TPL.You are not the only one who tend to have a laugh at our players in India,followed by some snide remarks.At the moment there are 12 players of Asian background in the EPL,squad members mainly who haven't had a game,there are 4, I think at the moment in the EPL,more than we have .A recent Indian player left Chelsea and now plays wit Stevenage,he left because of the race problem.There is an Asian coach in English football.What I'm trying to say is,football is big among the Asian population and needless to say they are suffering the the same shit that many Caribbean and African youths suffered from the late 60s to the late 70s and more.I always love football and have always supported the underdogs,I like India,Madascar,Mauritius etc.I think India will have more than 25 players in the next 5 years to utilise for their national team,I would love to see our football get back to the top as we once were,but TBH I can't see us beating Guyana from what I'm reading.I hope I'm wrong.

It's intriguing when India's NT coach is ambivalent about selecting players from outside of India's top flight and we ...

Imagine where our guys have to go for a pay check ......
I think you blokes are not aware of Indian football and how much it has improved,you make a "laughing stock"of everybody which is a characteristic of many Trinis including close relations of mine.I am sure you are aware that the Indian league attracts footballers from every footballing country including South America.I am not saying they are from the top leagues but many would be better than some or many of TTs lot.India can probably call on 11 or more players from the UK in the lower leagues.Why downgrade the boy because he plays in India,maybe you might know something TF don't know.

Everytime I hear or see Gally Cummings I remember how he was the reason we did not qualify for 1990 with the3 best football team the Caribbean has ever seen or known.A team of schoolboys could have held out for a draw against that USA team.

I remember as young boy in Trinidad how we used to have at least 5 very good Goal Keepers to choose from,now we have to stay with one who has never kept a clean sheet in years.I keep hearing about a Canadian Trini who has been highly rated,Ranjitsingi is the name,a good Trini name that :D,anyway mate let's hope for a start that would lead us to the team we know we can be.

That's the way to go TF,why stick with the players who have brought TT nothing but woe,time to "DUSSOUT".I cannot help but recall how supporters were asking for a new start,well we got that now and what a brave move, win or lose.I am sure TF will be looking for positives and hopefully find 2 or 3 "rough diamonds" who will join the five or six sure starters,could be more.
