Football / Re: Juan Roman Riquelme Best in the World?
« on: July 15, 2005, 11:01:55 PM »
Most versatile--Gerard.  Can score, play anywhere on the pitch, and have heart, with some touches and skill.  Everybody want him.  Riquelme is doing well at the moment, but he needs about three more seasons at that level to be considered elite.  RIght now, he have Aimar on the bench for Argentina, so he must be doing something right.

He in Brooklyhn right now, playing tatters for the Trinidad team.  That fella never had the commitment.  He head like a shrimp--full ah shit.  He think he too good, and never developed himself enough to get to the next level.  When ah man could say that he play in Scotland for Fife(?) and that he fulfill that ambition and not really aspiring to play at ah higher level, it done showing you whey he mind is.  Leh we move on, cause he is history.

Football / Re: Players responsible for their fitness??
« on: July 15, 2005, 10:47:56 PM »
Players.  Even U.S. college teams does send yuh home with a fitness program during the summer.  From my personal experience, we used to have to come in ready to take the fitness tests the first couple of days during preseason.  Dem fellas does get carried away when they come home for the offseason; too much drinking and limin'.  They are paid to play; they should see their body as an investment that they must maintain.

Football / Re: Juve buy Vieira from Arsenal for 20 mln euros
« on: July 15, 2005, 10:43:48 PM »
Dey sell him because they believe Fabregas ready to assume he role.  Last season he was a revelation when Viera was injured.  He was only 17, but was playing like a 25-year-old.  They go need a little more steel in the middle though.  I think they need to buy a replica of Makalele to complement all that skill they have in the middle.  Yuh always need a ball winner, regardless of all the skill yuh have in the middel.  Even Real realize that and went and buy Graveson from Everton last season.

Well said, Palos.  We talking bout big man that done supposed to have signed contract with professional teams.  The age at which players breaking into senior teams--both club and country--has gone done significantly over the last ten years.  At 23, men like Raul, Owen, and company was done superstars.

KND. You too cynical.  Birchall is not a bad player, even though he might never have played for England.  If a player is eligible, then we should go after him, which is what we did.  I on a fetch match team that does win.  So Beenie should call up some players from my squad too.  Ah spot some gaping holes in your argument.

Football / Re: De real problem...
« on: July 14, 2005, 02:53:00 PM »
De problem is the standard of the PFL.  No disrespect, but with the exception of about two teams, the others is barrel wash.  How de hell yuh could have ah PFL team failing to show up for so many matches last season like Tobago United.  Dat alone telling yuh the organization of the league. Ah keep saying, training for two hours a day will not cut it. Ah know we have pro teams home that doing dat.  The pro teams home need to send their staff abroad to benchmark the structure of the best teams in Europe and South America--from the youth level all the way up.  We need to adapt the best practices of these clubs to our local league.  We stagnant.  We only pro in name right now.  How many of the teams looking to acquire their own facilities and establish academies--none.  W Connection and Jabloteh seem to be the only clubs that churning out decent players.  What happen to the rest of the teams?    Remember, players spend more time with their clubs than national teams. When they come home or go to their national teams, there is not much time for conditioning and player development; it is assumed that they would be up to that level, hence their national selection.  Sorry to say, we not up to the level because club football at home is not up to par.

Right now, Lawrence look like the only defender capable of knocking de ball.  Dog is merely a ball winner and good set play option.  Avery needs more composure and less rashness, Cyd Gray is ah wild man.  Atiba needs to be given a better run in the team, because ah feel he have some potential.  Lawrence problem is his age; no club might be willing to invest in him because he is sort of old, relatively speaking.

Football / Re: What's running in Jack Warner's mind?

Ah hope Beenie ain't going island hopping again.  He like the Dutch Antilles too much.  He better find the right combination for the U.S., and go see if he could find some more foreign-born trini.  It sad, but allyuh see how Jamaica home-bred squad run Mexico last nite.  People talking bout Jamaica ain't have a program going now, but they using this time away from the World Cup to groom a young squad for South Africa 2010.  They purposely brought a young squad to expose them.  They made about six changes to they starting line-up last nite, and them fellas hold they own.  Looks like they eh looking for a foreign coach either.  I was reading they local paper and the JFF president was saying that it was only a matter of time before the technical staff became all local.  Dem fellas learn from the foreign coaches; they was like apprentice, watching and learning the trade from the Brazilians they hire.  Last night Jamaica had a 20-year-old in they lineup.  Ah don't think we have a 20-year-old home that ready for that level of football, and it says a lot about our player development program--non-existent.

I will say that Jamaica implemented a structure since 1994, that they have stuck to.  We still in this shortterm mode of "Get we to the World Cup today."  Are we not realizing that there is a structural problem with our football.  We not producing players that are up to representing the national team, and there is no continuity of teams that represent at the youth level.  That is what the Brazlilians (Simones and company) did for JA, and what he was trying to do for us, but we have no patience. Ah wonder what will be the fate  of Beenie if we don't qualify for Germany?   We go revert to another local coach, who don't know how to manage a team.  St. Clair is a trainer at best.  He lacks selection awareness, has no scouting ability, and did not adopt any of the practices he observed on those trips to the facilities of Man U, Aresenal and company.  Right now, Jamaica is on another level to us, because they are at the point where they can play up to the better teams.  Watch them give a fight to Mexico tonight.  I love meh Warriors, but we have some ways to go.  Beenie needs to be the Technical Director of football, not just senior coach.  We need to keep him, regardless of what happens.

Alberta--it's called scouting.  Jamaica doing it with some success, so why can't we.

Lineup is decent, but ah think we need about three more players to deepen the squad.  Rahim not up to standard; for all his skill, he can't defend for shit, and is thus a liability.  Wondering why he can't get an  extended run at his club?  Can't defend and track back.  I think that Jack is a potentially good goalkeeper, but look at how he organizes his defence for set plays.  He is lacking a bit of presence in that aspect of his game, and needs to learn to play it better with his feet.  Cyd Gray is not an international player.  Ah doh care if Beenie looking at him or not.  He is a wild man.  Sad thing is that our "professional" league is not cutting it.  Training for two hours a day will not do it.  Our players lack tactical knowledge of the game, and the little intricacies that separate good teams from bad teams.  Intercol not helping either, because these guys are made to believe that they have made it by the time they come out of high school.  The only option is to look for foreign-born players that want to wear the shirt.  We need more Birchalls!
