Football / We need to follow Japan's footsteps
« on: June 22, 2005, 09:14:03 PM »
I know y'all saw the Brazil Japan game. And although Brazil had 60% of the possession, a dozen more chances, and looked more dangerous, Japan held their own and managed to get a very respectable draw.
I think we should try to emulate Japan, and play their Brazilian style.
From what I have seen in the Mexico game, we seem to be heading in this direction, trying to keep possession with shorter passes in the midfield and maintaining a good structure and formation for the entire 90 mins.
Gone are the days when supposedly "weaker" teams simply succumb to their highly touted counterparts.
In other words, if we were to play Brazil, we should strive to win like Japan did today.
The only difference I saw between us and Japan is the speed and skill of their forwards and a creative midfielder in Nakata.
Let's follow Japan's example

Mattheus from Germany I think daz incorrect spelling,
Del Piero when he was hot,

Football / Freddy Adu
« on: June 21, 2005, 05:30:17 PM »
I watched Freddy play in the youth championship today and have seen him in MLS games.
The youngster clearly has skill and is very good for his age. But I think he is just overrated since the US is searhcing for a "Soccer" hero to fit into their marketing machine.

i watch d game
Italy have a man named Pelle who tall, fast, have nuff skills and a deadly bullet. Hue turn up real men.
Look for him to be a star in the near future.
He has physical gifts that cannot be taught

Let's not get caught up with a number.
10 is a number that should go to our best player, either striker or midfield.
Right now I would say it is Birchall.
Iz not like the number retired like they do in basketball.

Football / Greatest player ever?
« on: June 19, 2005, 10:39:41 PM »
Dear Forumites,
My last post in the Brazil-Mexico thread has me thinking about who is the greatest player that I have ever seen.
Many say Pele but unfortunately i am not old enough to have witnessed his majestic abilities.
I am torn between Maradona, Ronaldinho and Pre-injury Ronaldo.
Just wanted to know some of your opinions.

Jah Goal,
How can you say that Ronaldinho failed to make a note?
The man set up goal for Adriano and he man throw away.
I have never witnessed a player who commands such respect from defenders as Ronaldinho.
The only other players I have witnessed in his class are Maradona and Ronaldo before injured his knee for the first time. (Let's not forget how GREAT Ronaldo was. He truly was legendary b4 he got injured and consequently fat)
Ronaldinho has bad games like everyone else, but despite this he always leaves his mark.

This is just an example of a team with more determination and heart winning the game. These qualities often trump talent. e.g. South Korea in the last world cup, Mexico today, Trinidad in 2005.
We just need to exhibit this type of grit and discipline, and play to the plan that our excellent coach puts together.
In 1989 we had the desire until the country started celebrating before we accomplished anything.
This is our year fellas, we can do it. Let us follow Mexico's example today.

Football / Re: Watching Argentina vs Brazil the other night
« on: June 16, 2005, 08:40:53 PM »
ANybody who see dat game had to see that Brazil real play despite getting beaten. They real knock and all of their individual players showed their abilities. Argentina did play well, but their third goal was definitely against the run of play as Brazil had established themselves as the dominant side by that time.
That run Ronaldinho made beating 5, yes 5 men made my jaw drop.
Ronaldinho, Kaka, Adriano, Robinho, Ronaldo.
Brazil is definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Jack did NOT have a good game..
The first goal was NOT a bulletnad it passed through his hands.
I am more leniant on the second goal although it looked like he did get there in time.

Doh Diss Birchall, the man was a lion in d middle fighting and trying to push the ball forward.
I feel is Alvin Corneal who write that he had a sub par game

Great Work TnT

Doh let shit snake Jack make allyuh feel down. This was the hardest match in the group, Mexico in Mexico. SO lewwe not lose heart.
We played well enough to win with tight defence and a few chances on the other end.

Few points:
1. Stern needs to get in sync with the rest of the team.
2. Rahim shit down himself and eat a beat when Avery went down and  that led to the lateral ball that set up the first goal.
3. We had the Mexican coach and crowd pissed for more than half of the game.

GO WARRIORS!!!!!!!!!!!

Football / Re: The Touches Match Report.....Fellas doe panic!
« on: May 11, 2005, 01:52:03 AM »
Touches thanks for the report.
I have observed that we have a lot of ignorant ppl on this forum who obviously don't really understand the game of football.
The best teams in the world go under to lowly underdogs all the time.
The coach is trying to implement a system and a strategy that is going to benefit us in the long term.
If we are going to learn to play this system correctly we will suffer a few bumps and bruises, but ultimately I think we will get it right. Hence the phrase "practice match". Don't we all know that practice makes perfect.
I recall reading a story about the world champion Chicago Bulls first team of Jordan, Pippen and Rodman losing badly to their second string unit of Toni Kukoc and a group of unknowns during practice.

Don't panic.
In addition, we always knew that Theobald and Seaton were the best midfielders in Trinidad anyway. Iz only Bertie didn't realise.

Football / New Side

Touches dat was a borse report. U should get a wuk alongside sporkman.

New side


     Avery John        Lawrence         Andrews


Edwards                 Theobald            Seaton ( in a wide ronaldinho role)

                   Jones                 Glenn

We look like we beating Mexico with that side. With a great coach, which we are now fortunate to have, this side taking us to Germany.

First of all, why isn't Otis Seaton on the team.
Second here's my team:






Sub: Jones for Glen
       Dwarikah for any midfielder

That side scoring some goals man but maybe letting in some too.
