Breds even the blind could see that the U.S. losen up on mexico and let them back in the game,

Nah, JC, I beg to differr bro. US loosen up on Mex with an early 2-0 lead. No way. Mexico beat the US convincingly, at least to me. Some of the goal may not be spectacular. So what? Look the US is no longer a walk over as 20 yrs ago for Mex. The Mex. and them know that. They does come prepared to play the US now. And you must remember the vast majority of the US victory has been in the US and the one WC victory abroad. But team don't take each other lightly anymore. I expect the US to continue challenging Mex., which is good for the region. That means the rest of the region)Carib) have to come better to beat them 2.

i may be wrong eh, but I don't think the US ever beat the Mexico in Mexico, far less in WCQ...

Cricket Anyone / Re: Is Rampaul an allrounder?
« on: June 24, 2011, 05:54:29 PM »
Neither are allrounders.

Bravo is the only allrounder in the team.

However, both Sammy and Rampaul are tail enders who bat well. Their batting can certainly be developed a la Malcolm Marshall.


Rampaul has always been a decent batsman and can still develop. However, the guys at the top (1 to 5) need make big runs.

The problem with Sammy is that he is neither here nor there as a batsman or bowler. Don't get me wrong, I like his approach to the game and sometimes you need a no frills player as a leader, but being neither one or the other affects the balance of the team. With Edwards back, a balanced attack would be Edwards, Rampaul and Roach, with bishoo as the spinner. Bravo would be allrounder in the side. J Taylor on the sidelines is also a good thing but I am not sure how he is progressing injury wise.

As it is right now u have batting lineup of nash (who is out of sorts right now), sammy, bravo, rampaul and baugh.....who are all similar kinda players and it makes the tail very long. Samuels (or Gayle) could provide some orthodox spin options which u need in a test match.....but both are out of the side.

So as it is we will find it hard to bowl out sides twice, contain a batting side that is on to, bat out the 4th day of a test.

interestingly, we've been somewhat better at bowling out sides since Sammy became skipper, again he doesn't look threatening but he gets's been our batting that has let us down really badly right throughout the year..I don't think we've had a century in either form of the game, we've barely had 50s as well...

Nash definitely needs to get dropped, Sarwan and even Chanderpaul are very close to being sacked...If Gayle comes back I'd open him with Barath and replace Nash with one of Samuels or Simmons. Both can bowl if the worried about sacrificing Nash's part time medium pace.

LOL! I was saying to my father is best we drop Nash and put Rampaul to bat at 6 for real eh..But as much as I'm no great fan of Sammy..he has THE BEST figures "statistically" of any West Indies bowler in recent history. And he's actually taken one wicket less than Rampaul in the recent series against pak and India with a lower average at that...

His batting on the other hand well...

Poor Jamaica. They reel off 3 straight victories just to most likely face the USA in the quarterfinals.  :devil:

Your menatlity is suspect.  Weak even.  The Jamaican mentality is not to hide or play like girly men. Check out the results in the last three games Jamaica play against the USA. If yo uthink Jamaica are running scared then you couldnt be more wrong. If that was the case they simply could have thrown the game last night.

Breds don't let these juvenile f**kers get the better of you on this board they're are all about hating,for me if it's not trini, I backing the next Caribbean country that doing well and in this case is Jamaica.

It really gets a old after being a member for so long the vitriol I hear coming out of some of these people mouths and don't get me wrong yardies do it also but we can't allow the mindless few to dictate....   

I'm glad some else could say this...

@reggaefan I wish some of players and even fans had the self belief you all have, cuz I fed up watch T&T teams with equal or above talent go to the US and pop down bcuz of who they feel they playing, wish we'd learn a lesson from our rivals instead of blowing hot air continuously...

I used to take a little "juk" in the college's league back in the day......was role player at best on meh squad, but my question is - how does college's league today go from this:

to what we seeing in them clips.......Way the support gone???????????? Why is like this today???? And QRC and Fatima is big school!

Altho i agree support has gone down, i think this game in particular was poorly supported because it was a rescheduled intercol game..the game was to be played a day earlier, and I was supposed to go to it, bcuz it could have been qrc's last for the year, but it got cancelled due to rain or something so..and i didn't find out the game play the very next day until i saw the result on news..

That's real harsh. Durant took a 35 foot 3 pointer at the buzzer - no blame there? Also what Scott Brooks calling in the huddle? And is about more than 1 man executing an offensive set. Westbrook is culpable no doubt but plenty of blame to go around.

Sinned on that play Durant and Westbrook both have to take major blame. Westbrook as point guard was to run a play to get the ball to Durant in a better position for a better shot, plus even when he did hand off the ball to Durant on that play. he stopped essentially right next to Durant inadvertently limited how many options KD had on the play and making Kidd and Marion's job of contesting and smothering Durant's attempt all the more easier.

I ent go start gloating... yet.  But I call this long time... that Game 1 win was a mirage for Chicago.  Tonight they played even better defense and held Wade in check for most of the game.  Boozer even make a cameo appearance off the witness protection list and his 18 pts (or whatever it is he finish with) neutralized what Bosh offered.  Yet they lost... too much LeBron.  Miami haven't yet had a game where all three stars show up yet they up 3-1.  Just too much firepower for the Bulls and they can't rely on 21 extra points from distance, or 23 extra points from offensive rebounds every game. 

That said I won't be surprised if they come out amped up in game 5 and get Rose and Boozer going early.  They might even win it.  But until they can identify a consistent second option to Rose they not winning this series.  Tonight Rose took 25 shots and make 8.  Do the math... 32%  The pattern has been start off with Bibby guarding him and see if Bibby can make some shots to keep him honest.  Next yuh bring in Chalmers to harrass him more and make him guard both the jumper and the drive.  Second half is ah steady diet of more Chalmers before yuh finish him off with Wade and James.  He score a grand total of 2 points after LeBron switch to guarding him... when James went for the steal and Rose drove and got fouled by Anthony.  That's it.  Shut 'em down.

I find rel ppl have been hard on Boozer, in game 3 he had 26pts and 17 rebounds and men was still saying he was anonymous in the series. Thing is he's been playing better the longer the playoffs went on, but Rose still not really feeding him. A good bit of Chicago's good offense had Boozer involved last night, but in the clutch Rose sorta pulled a Westbrook and didn't make plays for his teammates. Chicago could have won the game last night if Rose didn't think he had to do it by himself.

People overreacting by calling OKC chokers... just as they did when Dallas took a 2-0 lead against the Heat five years ago, only to lose four straight and cede the title.  I ent no expert, but playoff basketball is a different breed of monster and it's next to impossible for inexperienced teams to win.  Is not me, is history say so... and for good reasons.

I agree, tha's why I rel like this team. Is a youth team and they battling out against veterans who honestly they shouldn't have any chance against, AS YET. Rel man ask me why I backing this side out of all of them, but I just love how much resilience they had shown up till last night. In game 1 and game 3 they fought to the wire despite Dallas dominatiing for most of the game forcing Dallas to play to end. I fed up see bigger stars and bigger teams give up on games like that, so it refreshing to see a young side play like that.

but as Mark Jackson pointed out, the officials were letting the Mavs get away with a lot more on Durant than the Thunder did on Nowitzski, especially when you look at the very soft call Dirk get to tie the game to send it to OT. But superstars hadda learn to overcome that.

I agree the last call was 'soft' (Collison had his arm draped around his waist though) but look at the shots dirk hit down the stretch - easily could have been 'and-1s'. The one from the left side, he got whacked right on his elbow as he was shooting. no call. His shot fakes at the top of the key and then fade-away j. Got hit on that too.

tha's what made even more baffling, the facts that the ref let sooo much go prior, no just on Dirk but on both ends just the call that crucial play..but my partialism to OKC aside..Dirk went nuts..some of those shots he hit were crazy, he deserve to win if you play like that..

OKC are choking dogs. KD is a great player, but like Derek Rose, he not ready.
Westbrook has received alot of criticism and deservedly so, but ah tired ah hearing people use him as an excuse when they lose. The coach have to take some blame for this one, yuh cyah have a 15 point lead with 5mins to go at home and lose.
Hats off to Dallas  :beermug:

I don't think you could label them chokers yet tho, they are a young team but I agree Brooks have to take blame for this. As do Durant and Westbrook.

I blame Brooks for not drawing up good plays for the team that would have killed the clock and stretched the floor. He could have put in Maynor or even Nate Robinson to make the Mavericks think about having to guard another shooter but instead he kept with the obvious offense.

I blame Durant for making bad decisions on shots, but as Mark Jackson pointed out, the officials were letting the Mavs get away with a lot more on Durant than the Thunder did on Nowitzski, especially when you look at the very soft call Dirk get to tie the game to send it to OT. But superstars hadda learn to overcome that.

and I still blame Westbrook, as a point guard, his decision making far too suspect. In the first when Thunder couldn't miss, it was Westbrook who started to ice his own offence by making poor shot decisions then poor transition passes. Durant started the game 6 of 6, then only got two more shots for the rest of the quarter! You have look at what your point guard is doing if that happens, is not coincidence that Dallas started to chip at the league during that stretch. He started to play better in the 3rd and they got a run then he reverted again. Plus before Dirk really got out of hand, Westbrook missed two free throws that would have stretched the lead and possibly killed the steam Dirk was trying to build late.

All in all it has Harden fouling out kill the Thunder, because after his playmaking went, their offense died.

I like this Thunder team I hope they don't become perennial chokers because of this.

Go ahead goal looked offside...

Chelsea having the nod of the Gods today so far. 

They did have a penalty waved off though

Chelsea play today like they haven't played in a long long time. Real hustle and fight

If they had played with this fight, they would already have wrapped up the title.

We've played that way since we got knocked out of the CL...

What changed..first of all.. ANCELOTTI STOPPED starting Ramires and reverted to the 4-3-3. Altho he started Torres today and we still look decent with Mikel, Essien Lamps centre...

i can't believe how many people failed to realise hwo much Ramires disrupts the chemistry in the middle..He generally gets in Lampard's way and he drifts from central to wide position  AND he gives away the ball..ALOT!

Sometimes he's play rel good games, but even when he does..he normally causing that headache in d middle for the other men...

The firing of Ray Wilkins was a major thing to chelsea losing the plot in mid season...
Mango Chow- I agree with you totally. Something happened to this team when Ray was sacked. BBC has an article today and I agree that changing the coach is not the answer. Somehow Michael, Anelka , Kalo Lampard maybe have to go. Chelsea need new blood and someone to partner Torres as I believe Drogba is going to ride out.

been sayin dat from d beginning, although they won the first couple or so games after he left they didn't look right and never looked right since ???

incorrect..immediately after he was fired, Chelsea went like 8 games without a win..his influence was great..

As I said.. luckiest team in Europe.. when they need a result they get the result via shit defending and goalkeeping and refs.. gist from the lino and gomes and a gift from the lino in the last minute.. offside winner

I'd be embarrassed to be a Chelsea fan.. no history, no passion , just luck and money

Anybody else find it funny that Man U fans upset that Tottenham Hotspurs lost due to poor officiating today?

Enough folks are quick to applaud Mourinho's tactical genius and rightly so, yet Ferguson gets little respect for the same.
Today Schalke were at 6's and 7's all because of Ferguson's selection, player placement and general tactical approach.

Schalke had no answer for the ManU counter, central attack and wide penetration. So much so that they were stretched to the point where they looked helpless. Thank god for the goalkeeper (yes Elan I know).

Playing Giggs today in central midfield was a master stroke. Chicharito's movement, in between and behind the Schalke back line, along with the  penetration out wide, created space for Roonie to do as he wished. Giggs late arrival in the penalty area could not be contained and quite frankly he should have had a hattrick in the first half alone.

All said I was very impressed with ManU and though I would say Schalke looked miserable, it was more a matter of ManU's game breaking them to submission.  

I did note Fergie's tactics as being a coutner measure to Schalke..but they were terrible on a whole..passes were misplaced regularly..they gave the ball back to Man U regularly without much fuss..I'm sorry Schalke were poor today..and Man U were very good...

Melo is a toxic presence in the locker room?

I think you rel harsh tho, the Knicks were an incomplete team coming into the playoffs and it's hard to blame Carmelo..they need better role players if they want to be serious..the Nuggets are the exact opposite, they don't have a star who will step up to win them games in the clutch...

Go back and check what I said... he was a toxic presence in the Denver locker room.  He was popular with his team mates but he undermined Karl in the locker room.  Karl even started tweaking him in public, talking about his selfishness (not in so many words) and his failure to commit defensively.  Same thing he went thru with Iverson.

Allyuh men also keep talking about how poor the Knicks were coming into the season... and missing the point completely.  As "incomplete" as the Knicks were there was a solid core of young players surrounding Stoudemire, a stable foundation around which to build a championship team.  I am not faulting Anthony for failing to deliver post-season wins (as implied by your comment), the most the Knicks were going to win was one, maybe two games against the Celtics... with or without Melo.  So no, I not faulting him.  I faulting the Knicks management (or if you believe the rumblings, the owner, James Dolan) for gutting the team of that solid core, in order to get spectacularly talented offensive player, who also happens to be supremely selfish.

Carmelo could have waited until the off-season to joint the Knicks and he would have had Stoudemire, Gallinari and Felton as team mates (they probably wouldn't have re-signed Chandler).  Imagine how much better that team would be next year?  Instead Dolan wanted to chase short term glory (a couple more wins and a post-season appearance this season) and Carmelo wanted to chase the $$.  Asked why he didn't wait until the off-season Anthony talk about the financial uncertainties anticipated by the CBA impasse... in other words, he wanted to get as much money now before the current agreement expired.  To heck with building a title team... he wanted to be paid.  Not me saying that... read anybody who following the situation in NY and Denver... I could post links if yuh want.

This is what trading for Anthony cost the Knicks:

Danilo Gallinari
Raymond Felton
Wilson Chandler
Timofey Mozgov
2012 Second Round pick
2013 Second Round pick
2014 First Round pick
2016 right to swap First Round picks (Denver could demand NY exchange picks with them if NY has a better pick)

In addition... we have no money to get a quality big man in the off-season... exactly what we need.  In other words, next year's Knicks will look the same as this year's Knicks because he tie up we hands.

We buy all that for what exactly?

I get what you saying...when I heard the deal I was vex Knicks lost Felton and Galinari..and imo i found the brand NY was playing before Melo was better, they just were lacking a killer finsher ( which Melo supposed to be )... I dunno, the offseason might spring a surprise...

Denver isn't better off either cause they're on the verge of getting swept tonight. As Charles Barkley said last night "keep the (fishing) poles close, bc another team maybe going fishing soon".

But when I watch the Knicks back court and is man like Billups and Anthony Carter, two veterans with "wear and tear" to rely on next season and Denver has all the youngsters with skill and athleticism to build with.

Dred, you getting tie up with the short term... neither of these teams was ever going to do anything this post-season, you don't blow up yuh roster as Denver and NY did and expect players to gel in time for the playoffs two months later.  These moves were all about the future... Denver got rid of a toxic presence in the locker room, a blackhole on the court and got four young players and a 2014 first round pick for their efforts.  Masai what he name run up in the Knicks with no vaseline on this trade.

Melo is a toxic presence in the locker room?

I think you rel harsh tho, the Knicks were an incomplete team coming into the playoffs and it's hard to blame Carmelo..they need better role players if they want to be serious..the Nuggets are the exact opposite, they don't have a star who will step up to win them games in the clutch...

Wenger is a true club manager...he manages players, youth programmes, budgets etc....sometimes i figure he might be better suited to d boardroom as opposed to d dressing room.

Mourinho needs material to work with...without 3 or 4 outstanding players mourinho aint worth shit

what about his days at porto?

I NOW come to say that, Like men forget HE WIN BACK to back European titles with Porto. Mourinho doesn't necessarily need OUTSTANDING players, he just needs a core of good players who will work within his philosophy. Madrid is perhaps his most star-studded team and right now he probably has the most headaches as a result.

Ah just coming to post this but get beaten to it!

So the truth is coming to light! So either Mavado lying & has a very bad memory or they have some other artist in St Lucia or Jamaica who Curty the song producer contacted that could do a very good impersonation of Mavado!
Either way, I believe KMC is telling the truth especially since he did not produce the track himself and was invited to voice on it on the Mavado track by the Lucian producer!

I don't think Mavado lie either, Mavado said it had a next soca singer from St. Lucia get a fake Movado feature, so it might be someone impersonating Mavado

this is the track he referred to on an interview on red 96.7

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win"></a>

Missing eight-year-old boy found dead miles from home
By Sue-Ann Wayow South Bureau

Story Created: Feb 20, 2011 at 11:50 PM ECT

Story Updated: Feb 20, 2011 at 11:50 PM ECT

THE search for eight-year-old Daniel Guerra ended last evening after his body was found in a river near the Tarouba overpass in San Fernando. He was still wearing the clothes he was last seen in when he left his home at Bedeau Street, Gasparillo, last Friday.

The Tarouba River drains from Tarodale Heights and is not linked to the Gasparillo River near where the boy lived.

Guerra's body was seen by a passerby around 5 p.m. and the discovery was reported to the police, who were at the time busily searching for him. His body was in a state of early decomposition and a black bag was found close by.

Assistant Commissioner of Police (South) Fitzroy Frederick said it was too early to say how the boy died.

Guerra went missing on Friday, after walking to a nearby parlour to buy two energy drinks. The boy was at home with his grandmother, Shirley Indarsingh, at around 11 a.m. when he asked to go to the parlour some 50 feet from his home. He was last seen wearing a sleeeveless white jersey, red shorts and blue and black slippers. He was holding a black bag containing the beverages.

His grandmother reported him missing within half an hour of him not returning home. Police only began a search after nightfall using sniffer dogs.

Guerra, a Standard Two pupil of the Gasparillo Government Primary School, had stayed home on Friday after falling and injuring his head the previous day.

Earlier yesterday, Member of Parliament for Tabaquite, Surujrattan Rambachan, had visited the family along with the councillor for Gasparillo/Bonne Adventure Feraz Ali. He said someone in the community may have information about the boy.

"So many crimes are solved because somebody in the community has a piece of information, and that is the appeal that I am making. If someone has a piece of information no matter how small that information is, you don't know, it might lead to the recovery of the child," he said then.

"If people have a fear to say anything, call me and talk to me, my number is 761-4924. I assure you whatever you know will be held in the highest level of confidence."

Flyers were distributed throughout Gasparillo and surrounding areas.

Guerra's grandfather, Randolph Indarsingh, said then that no calls about Guerra were made to the family.

Guerra's mother, Rona Indarsingh, had said she hoped he would be found "safe and sound".

"Whoever have him I hope that you have it in your mind that he is just a little child, he is an innocent child, he did no wrong. I just want my son," she cried.

After learning of the discovery of the child's body, Rambachan returned to the scene last evening to console the family and friends.

Police still do not know the reason for Guerra's abduction.
