Football / Re: Thread for T&T vs Panama Game (18-Jun-2019)
« on: June 18, 2019, 07:39:37 PM »
This was a sad outing from a team who've had great preparation. Basic things this team failed at all night. We adjusted nothing in 90 minutes. We kept playing around the back into the wingers and then lost the ball. In the 88 minute we were still doing this. Panama just allowed us to play the ball into the winger and then shut the door. Why didn't Lawrence adjust our strategy?

Our defenders are terrible with the ball at their feet. Why are we trying to play out when Cyrus (any of our defenders)can't use the ball? Cyrus can only do one thing and is tackle the ball away. That's it.  Alvin Jones looked like he never saw the game before. Very disappointed in Hyland. He's been at it for to long to still be this invisible. No leadership. We didn't even try to win corners at the end of the game.


I don't get this. It's very perplexing  :frustrated: watching our approach. We had no purpose. None. Nada. Zilch.

Football / Re: National Elite Youth Development Programme
« on: March 10, 2018, 10:29:08 AM »
This program should have been one of education. Assist local clubs in how they should go about developing players. What the NT looks at in selecting players (tactically - technically - psychologically - physically - socially). How to structure the club administration. How to generate player interest and commitment. How to secure some form of sponsorship. How to involve the community. How to set up intra-club league/play.

Then the next cycle should be working directly with players at their clubs so that players, coaches, and administrators can see and understand what it's like to work with the NT set-up.

The following cycle should be invites to a limited number of players, coaches, and administrators to the "Elite Centers" for training session. These group changes regularly and are not set.

The scope of this program should be to interact with and develop as many players, coaches, and administrators as possible to operate at the highest level possible.

Now watching this and getting into this program. We're going about this the wrong way. We're wasting time and money with this program on both the boys and girls side.

We should be using this program to establish long-term objectives. This is not it.

well, i must conclude the fan support must be real shit too.
in my time and even now in most sports around the world, is the fan base that drives the athletes/players to excellence, it the fan base that drives the sport..the sport is not what drives the fan base...so let's also face that piece of reality as well..
hard earned money going to a lot of other shit instead, to bad we doh have a Fete National team,  we fanbase wudda just get wineing mix up with winning ans we would probably lorse that too... we teams not winning, so we cyah wine, so F dat...cyah spend we money dey, no wine to get    :devil:

Don't agree. If our players require support in the stands to succeed then we will never get anywhere. Our players have to do the jobs themselves and then the fans will get behind them. Players can't control what go on in the stands, but they can control what they do on the field always.

Haiti showed the mentality that we lacked. I posted about it. Down a man vs the USA and instead of "saving face" they went for it and was rewarded with the equalizer forcing PKs.

This is the difference between everyone else and us. We are more worried about how we "look" than saying "you know what we went for it and it did not work out".

We have to dispose of this weak mentality.

What's the deal with this? Do we have a women's team? Are they in training?

Supposedly they have been in training since December. Don't know who the squad is, but you are very familiar with the coach. ;)

You made me go investigate.

We eh serious at all.  :cursing:

We score first in 3 games and lose those 3 games.

We have more female players playing the game, yet we have not improved on the women's game.
Had the opportunity to observe a women's training session at Mandela park last year. I watched for aprox an hour or a little less. Were the women/girls good or decent. I can't really say. The coach had them standing around every 10 minutes, while he explained a particular requirement/play to one player or another for about 5 minutes, every time. Most of the girls were therefore doing nothing - not even allowed to get water -, unoccupied, unfocused for at least 1/3 of the observed session. Thus these women would neither develop game fitness , flow, or ability to execute anything based on this particular practice. Maybe other sessions were more intense. I don't know.
 So even with increased numbers of girls playing the sport, what would be the final product there? Note, I will not base all of TT local women game and practice based on that one bad sample. Yet, from what I did observe years ago, with the coaching of the men's game, I would be quite concerned that the girls are not getting the proper development and training that is required to compete at a international level. Local is fine, skill and ability might be ok, execution and adaptation when faced with more intense well trained athletes might be detrimental to their performance. Being fit to run around the savannah, don't mean one can peform at highest level for 90 minutes of football.


wow....    :frustrated:

Jamal Shabazz is a dumb ass.

You losing 3-1 facing certain elimination and you are not committing numbers forward. No press, no support in forward positions, no commitment to the attack.

Absolutely ridiculous.  :pissedoff:
he was never going to beat Canada or seriously threaten their goal. Why make the score look worse than it was. If we played with 14 we may not get a organized attack, what makes you think Shabazz will get a win down 3-1 with 10. When I putting down the coach, prefer to keep it real. My only quarrel with the man is, he not aware of football outside the nation.

Don't totally agree with that.

Costa Rica could have said the same thing, but look at how they responded and what it did to Haiti. We needed to play for 1 goal at a time. I'm not saying attack with reckless abandon, but we had some nice spots where we could have took a chance and we never did. We resigned from early to not "losing bad". That's coward, and taught our players that they are indeed inferior. I don't like that approach.

We've been surrendering like this for decades and now it seems to be who we are. This is why at 1-1 we wilt. We show no fight or mental fortitude to fight back especially when we're leading and give up goals.
"Saving face" needs to not be part of who we are.

Final

Trinidad and Tobago 1 - Canada 4

Canada moves on to the Semi final along with Haiti. Canada and Haiti face each other in their final group game.

Trinidad and Tobago (Host) along with Costa Rica are eliminated and face each other in their final group game.
