Football / Re: Thread for the T&T Women's U-17 World Cup (Sept 2010).

Glad to see the ladies get their first win and saying all the right thing after the victory. Winning your opener as a host nation is no easy feat and they should be commended for their efforts. It just shows what can be done when you put a little structure and professionalism in our youth teams with a serious dose of organization as well the time needed to bring a team together. As I watch the game it was typical Pellers at work. The team looked fit, physically strong and depend on the long balls. The game tonight against Nigeria will be a unique one. This is a team that matches up well physically against the young Soca Princesses. So how the Chileans struggled at times to compete physically against them will not be the case tonight. So they have to play some more to get that second win. I am a little concerned about the keeper. However, hopefully she doesn't have to deal with too much air ball and crosses tonight. So all the best ladies. These next two games are going to be very tough.

Officials hit finally back… with fatal results

A Brazilian referee is on the run after fatally stabbing a player during a match in Barriera, northeast Brazil on Sunday.

According to Marca, local referee Gregorio Edio Francisco Chaves, 26, attacked Jose Ramos da Silva during a dispute over a foul. Police reports say Chaves stabbed da Silva in the chest before turning on the 28-year-old’s brother, knifing him in the back multiple times.

Despite being treated by doctors, da Silva died at the scene. His brother, Francisco Chagas da Silva is currently recovering from his injuries.

i was very impressed with Nigeria though. Their presence in the final third was lacking though. If they had that portion of their game under lock they would have destroyed the Germans. They were the youngest team. So hopefully they can take this group to the next level. Some of them can play in another U20 World Cup. The German U20 national team that lost in 2008 was a much better team though. They now make up the U23 national  Women's German national team. I am afraid Germany will be a force at the next Seniors Women's World Cup in Germany.

I would like to officially thank Dunga for taking away my fanatical attributes for Brazil and its football since 1970. I will watch this World Cup with no real expectations as I have done in the past. As long as he is in charge of the national team I will reserve my support. This sh*t he pull today is personal pure and simple. He doesn't want Ronnie on the team based on some personal reason and what took place in Germany. It didn't help Ronnie that he bypass an invitation from Dunga to join the team when he first took over the reigns. Kaka did the same thing and was given a pass. I keep hearing men talking about 2006. The last time i checked this is 2010. When i look at players performance for their clubs the past 5 months. No one could convince me that Ronnie didn't make a serious case to be included into this 23 man squad. Dunga announced the 23 man squad because he knew Ronnie was in the 30 and didn't want to encourage any speculation. When you giving Adriano serious consideration for all his mishaps and you don't want to cut Ronnie some slack who has been handling his stories all these months. Robinho is meh boy but he was rotting on Mancity bench and was still called up against Ireland. Since the confed cup where  has Fabiano been. You know what let me drop this f&^%Ing thing yes. I can't remember being this F&^%ING MAD OVER FOOTBALL. Dunga is  C*&T NUFF SAID

I recently returned from doing an international educational football tour in Spain and Cryuff is viewed as the one responsible for their present football. He signs off on everything that comes into or leaves Barca as well

Deeks this is your national team wearing the name of another country on their backs. Take a minute and try to visualize another country in the world doing that same thing. If they can't outfit the players with the proper gear for a tour then we wasting time. We can't think on the level well its only for a couple of days so why waste money. Its no joke to play and focus in cold weather. As Elan rightfully said  as well we are playing the event in Trinidad. Why not get some games against teams in warmer climates. Anyway let me drop this issue. These are just some of little attention to detail I don't mix matters with in my present situation.

Fellas I am sorry but I have a real problem watching our national team players in Korean jackets. Trini is hosting the World Cup in a few months. Teams can't take us seriously with this pic. Could you imagine the Koreans staff and players after lending us these tops. As a staff we must know ahead of time the climate we are going to be exposed to and be ready to deal with it. This should have been in place before the team left for Korea. None of us on this thread should be comfortable with this at all. What is also telling is the players focus. Look at their heads some of them are all over the place as Pellers is making his coaching point. As for the comments on fitness and this team. One of the down falls of playing direct is that it entails more running to stay connected as a unit. Imagine your back 4 launching 50-60 yards in the final third and the midfield having to transition to catch up with the lone striker or a fellow midfielder in a wide position. As the game progresses it leads to a very tired bunch of players especially those in Midfield. It doesn't help you are playing like that and your opponents are holding on to the ball when they gain possession because now as we all know is real chasing going on  Being familiar with Pellers methods, I know he believes in the direct play. I am not quite sure if it will be suited to the players. A teams football should have elements of its culture. I am still rooting for them to do well though. Hopefully the lessons learnt in Korea will be invaluable

My personal experience with the Koreans is that they will will never show you their real intentions in friendly games. They have a tendency to play their weaker teams early or set up an environment to feel out their opponents they the lay down the hammer when the time is right. So after the first game I was not surprised and I certainly wasn't surprised when I saw the other two results.

I have been looking at the present potential pool of players the Warriors are depending on for the push for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and couldn't put my finger on the player who might be considered as the key to Trini's success to get through qualification. Ah know it have some knowledgeable men on this forum who might be able to answer that so I welcome your thoughts/input etc

With the new bargaining agreement they just signed almost a week ago things should be a little better financially for the players

Should Korea continue on the path they have been on during the past 5 years they will be a dominant force on the world stage. 2008 World Cup U17 champions. I had a chance to view the FIFA report with all the videos. They were awesome. The were good in every phase of the game. 2008 U20 World Cup runner 2006 World Champions. Senior national team 2008 World Cup runners up. There is a trend. I am looking forward to seeing what this group can do for their full national team in the 2011 World Cup

The Koreans are much better DosSantos

Observer I am glad you raised that point because I will share with you a culture that has been perpetuated throughout the US National women's team program as well as the men. As my research has also shown me its not just a US thing but a system that is being used all over the world and the Spanish Soccer Federation addressed it since its being used in their programming right now. Players are selected by their birth years for their youth national teams. As a result when you look at players born from Jan to June as oppose to June-December, they are not only more gifted with the Physical component of the game which includes being bigger, stronger and faster but their maturity level is greater. So the US who for years have been depending on players with these gifts have been stocking our national teams with these types of players. This is not only true with the US but its a phenomenon that is used all over the world. This week while visiting with the Spanish soccer federation and was a part of a conversation confirming this exact same thing. Spain is worried about this. Since there are times player may get over looked because of their physical dimension being born in the latter half of the year. I would say though based on my definition of a technical player, we do have a few sprinkle around the various national teams we have. Some of the ones you called are legends. But since Pia Sundhage took over with the senior team I have seen a change in attitude approach and technical efficiency within the structure of the team. However, it is still a problem to me so I would say player identification selection and player development are at the core of some of the issues we are experiencing today in the women's game here in the US. However, its not just a women's thing or a US thing its all over the world. It may not seem like it because of where and because we see some of the other countries with great football players. But my friends its like that all over the world from South America, Europe etc When you have a minute just visit some of the rosters of some of these national teams and take a look at their birth year. Presently the majority of the Spanish players were Born before June
