If the game stays 2-0...

Trinidad & Tobago will qualify with a 2-goal win over Jamaica.
Trinidad & Tobago will qualify with any win against Jamaica if Grenada don't win by at least 2 against Barbados.
Trinidad & Tobago will qualify with a draw if Grenada draw with Barbados, or if Barbados beat Grenada
Trinidad & Tobago will qualify if they lose by one goal to Jamaica and Barbados beat Grenada 1-0.

Imagine dis is where T&T reach   ??? ??? What a shame, blame it on de pool  ::)

Yorke to act as assistant coach

....Keane resigns as Sunderland boss
 
     

 
 Roy Keane has resigned as manager of Sunderland after 27 months in charge.

Keane, 37, took over in 2006 but chose to step down with the club lying 18th in the Premier League following five defeats in six matches.

First team coach Ricky Sbragia has been placed in charge temporarily, assisted by coaches Neil Bailey and Dwight Yorke.

Yorke now assumes this role and there would be questions as to his availability to the national football team for the final round of World Cup Qualification next year.
Earlier this year, Keane and T&TFF Special Advisor Jack Warner had a public spat over the availibility of Yorke for the Soca Warriors World Cup effort.

Warner said Keane showed no respect for T&T and Keane in turn said Warner was a clown.

Meanwhile, Sunderland’s chairman Niall Quinn said: “Roy’s decision sums up his desire to always do what is best for the club, despite the club’s efforts to keep him.

“Roy deserves huge respect for his contribution and the manner in which he guided the club from the depths of the Championship back to the Premier League.

Niall Quinn expresses his disappointment at the departure of Roy Keane.

“His winning mentality and singled mindedness were just what this club needed. Even in his departure he has been more concerned for the welfare of the players and his staff than himself.

“The board has reluctantly accepted his decision and wish him and his family well for the future.”

Quinn, who held talks with Keane over three days in an attempt to persuade him to stay, added: “He lifted this place off its knees, he is a tremendous influence.

“Five weeks ago (after beating Newcastle) people were dancing in the streets of Sunderland. It’s a funny world football and I hoped I’d never have to do this day.

Keane took charge of Sunderland in August 2006

“I spoke many times about Roy and I being in a partnership and it feels like the partnership has dissolved now.

“I wish him real well in the future. He’ll get a bit of time to himself now to re-charge but I think we all know the Premiership hasn’t seen the last of him. He’s got great things to come.”

Keane, who guided the Black Cats to the Premier League in 2006-07, had said in recent weeks that his future may not be certain, although Sunderland have spent the last few days trying to persuade him to stay on.

The Black Cats’ latest defeat came against Bolton on Saturday and Keane said after the 4-1 loss: “I ask myself every day if I’m the right man for Sunderland.

“I asked myself this morning and I said I was. Sunday morning, if the answer’s no, we’ll have to look at it.”

Keane spent nearly £70m on 33 permanent signings following his arrival in August 2006, including big-money deals for striker Kenwyne Jones, midfielder Kieran Richardson, defender Anton Ferdinand and a club record £9m on keeper Craig Gordon.

On their return to the Premier League last season they finished in 15th place, escaping relegation by only three points.

Sunderland held a news conference at 1300 GMT in which they confirmed the departure of Keane, who himself issued a short statement.

He said: “I would like to thank my staff, players, Niall Quinn and, in particular, the fans for their support during my time at Sunderland, and I would like to wish the club every success in the future.”

ALyuh watch this side good and be honest here...who tackling and winning any ball besides Keyno, Wolfe and to a lesser extent Leon.

T&T start team: Marvin Phillip, Makan Hislop, Aklie Edwards, Seon Power, Keyeno Thomas, Aurtis Whitley (Arnold Dwarika, 87th) Clyde Leon, Keon Daniel, Khaleem Hyland, Anthony Wolfe (Andre Toussaint, 64th) Cornell Glen. Subs not used - Jan Michael Williams, Julius James, Cyd Gray, Avery John, Osei Telesford

This side built for lash

No steel, no work ethic and no fortitude in the middle save Wolfe and to a lesser extent Leon.

But have no fear alyuh...watch who ent play...YES YES Corbeaux in full effect. Keyno will keep his place and the other 3 will fall in for the remainder of the tournament.

Whereas yuh must play yuh strongest team and win yuh first game and get command of the group we choose to experiment and ketch them sleeping when the other teams rest players in the later games. Is a reverse tactic,
As Haiti showed us in the last tournament.

We beating/drawing with JA and will beat bdos to a frazzle, coming in 2nd in the group.

Fret not thyself!

I eh sure bout dat nah .. is bye bye Gold Cup, de talent pool shallow and de afro man team selection suspect.

Indian warship sinks Somali pirate vessel, navy says.


An Indian warship was able to fight off and destroy a suspected Somali pirate vessel, the navy said on Wednesday, the same day two other ships were hijacked off the coast of Somalia.

Meanwhile, the owners of a seized Saudi oil supertanker were reportedly negotiating for the release of the ship, anchored off the coast of Somalia.

The pirates had threatened to blow up the INS Tabar after Indian officers asked the pirate vessel to stop on Tuesday to be searched in the Gulf of Aden, the Indian navy said. Officials said they had also spotted pirates with rocket-propelled grenade launchers on the vessel.

The pirate vessel then opened fire on the Indian ship, which, according to GlobalSecurity.org, is a 122-metre vessel, carrying cruise missiles, surface-to-air missiles and six-barreled 30-mm machine guns for close combat.

"INS Tabar retaliated in self-defence and opened fire on the mother vessel," the navy said in a statement.

"Explosions were heard, possibly due to exploding ammunition that was stored on the vessel," the navy said, adding that the vessel then sank.

The Indians chased one of two speedboats accompanying the pirate vessel. The speedboat was later found abandoned. The other speedboat escaped, according to a navy statement.

The attack came the same day a Thai fishing boat with 16 crew members and an Iranian cargo ship with a crew of 25 were also hijacked in the Gulf of Aden.
Hijacked supertanker anchored off Somalia

Also Tuesday, pirates who hijacked a Saudi-owned supertanker anchored the vessel off the north coast of Somalia. The Sirius Star was anchored near Harardhere, 425 kilometres from Eyl. It is loaded with two million barrels of crude oil valued at around $100 million.

The ship, with 25 crew members on board, was seized over the weekend by Somali pirates, 830 kilometres off the Kenyan coast.

Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal said Wednesday that the owners of the tanker "are negotiating on the issue" of a ransom but wouldn't elaborate.

He said "we do not like to negotiate with pirates, terrorists or hijackers." But he said the owners of the tanker are "the final arbiter" on the issue.

Noel Choong, who heads the International Maritime Bureau's piracy reporting centre in Kuala Lumpur, said a total of 17 vessels are currently being held hostage in Somali waters with more than 300 crew members.

"It's getting out of control," Choong told the Associated Press.

Choong said eight ships have been hijacked this week. Since the beginning of the year, 39 ships have been hijacked in the Gulf of Aden, out of 95 attacked.

"There is no firm deterrent, that's why the pirate attacks are continuing," Choong said. "The criminal activities are flourishing because the risks are low and the rewards are extremely high."

Pirates have generally released ships they have seized after ransoms are paid.

Oops! 'Pirate' ship was fishing trawler
 

NEW DELHI – The pirate "mother ship" sunk last week by the Indian navy was actually a Thai fishing trawler seized hours earlier by pirates, a maritime agency said Wednesday, but the Indian navy defended its actions, saying it fired in self-defence.

Noel Choong, who heads the International Maritime Bureau's piracy reporting centre in Kuala Lumpur, said one Thai crew member died when the Indian frigate INS Tabar fired on the boat in the Gulf of Aden on Nov. 18.

Fourteen others are missing while a Cambodian sailor was rescued four days later by passing fishermen, he said. The maritime bureau received a report on the apparent mistake late Tuesday from Bangkok-based Sirichai Fisheries, which owned the trawler, the Ekawat Nava5, he said.

"The Indian navy assumed it was a pirate vessel because they may have seen armed pirates on board the boat which has been hijacked earlier," Choong said.

India's navy said last week that the INS Tabar, which began patrolling the gulf on Nov. 2, battled a pirate "mother ship" on Nov. 18, setting the ship ablaze.

In New Delhi, Indian navy spokesman Commander Nirad Sinha said Wednesday that the INS Tabor was responding to threats from pirates on board the ship to attack.

"Insofar as we are concerned, both its description and its intent were that of a pirate ship," he said. "Only after we were fired upon did we fire. We fired in self defence. There were gun-toting guys with RPGs on it."

"Pirates take over ships," he said. "They've been doing that since the days of Long John Silver."

Sirichai Fisheries found out about the mishap after speaking to the Cambodian sailor, who is now recuperating in a hospital in Yemen, said Wicharn Sirichaiekawat, the company's managing director. The trawler was headed from Oman to Yemen to deliver fishing equipment when it was hijacked.

"We are saddened with what has happened. It's an unfortunate tragedy. We hope that this incident won't affect the anti-piracy operation by the multi-coalition navies there," Choong added.

Sirichaiekawat said his company had contacted the International Maritime Bureau after getting messages from other boats in the region that the Ekawat Nava5 had come under pirate attack. The boat was outfitted with a transmitter sending out its location, which indicated the boat was headed toward the coast of Somalia, he said.

Sirichai Fisheries asked if any naval ships were in the area to help their stricken boat. The British navy responded, asking for information, but later told the company that pirates had already boarded the ship and any sort of attack on them could cause the crew to be harmed.

"The British navy instructed us to wait until the pirates contacted us," he said.

Meanwhile, the International Maritime Bureau alerted the multi-coalition forces patrolling the region and other military agencies in the area, sending them photos of the vessel, Choong said.

However, it was unclear if the Indian navy had received the information because it has no direct communication links to the maritime bureau, he said.

"We hope that individual navy warships that are patrolling the gulf would coordinate with the coalition forces or request information from us" to avoid such incidents, Choong added.

It's unclear whether darkness played a role in what happened. The Indian navy said earlier that the final showdown with what they called the "mother ship" occurred after nightfall, but also said the entire incident had taken a few hours, and that it had begun in the evening.

Somalia, an impoverished nation caught up in an Islamic insurgency, has not had a functioning government since 1991. Somali pirates have become increasingly brazen recently, seizing eight vessels in the past two weeks, including a Saudi supertanker loaded with $100 million worth of crude oil.

There have been 96 pirate attacks so far this year in Somali waters, with 39 ships hijacked. Fifteen ships with nearly 300 crew are still in the hands of pirates, who have demanded multimillion-dollar ransom.

At present, warships from Denmark, India, Malaysia, Russia, the U.S. and NATO patrol a vast international maritime corridor, escorting some merchant ships and responding to distress calls in the area.

Shippers worldwide have called for a military blockade of the waters off Somalia's coast to intercept pirate vessels heading out to sea, but NATO officials said there were no such plans. France has also rejected such a call, saying it was not feasible.

Question....how old dem is now? I wasnt even in the planning stages when they were in existence so i making this statement on the little that i hear from older heads. What they going and offer..expertise...or manpower? One of the reasons that they were "effective" was that from wha i gather..Borroughs was just eliminating competition.....it seems to be a widely known secret that was the case.

Same Story..different Report
Quote
The Flying Squad, the unit within the Police Service which brought fear to the lives of criminals for 16 years, is back.

A reunion is being held at 5 pm today at the Police Service Mess at Long Circular Road, St James. But the members are coming together to make recommendations to the Commissioner of Police as to how he should deal with the criminals and the crime situation.

Mervyn Cordner, who retired as an inspector, said during an interview yesterday that he had been looking at the crime situation in the country for sometime.

Based in Orlando, Florida, Cordner decided to get in touch with his former colleagues, including attorney Thomas Cunningham and Rudolph Leach.

“I think about 40 of my colleagues will be there on Wednesday,” Cordner said.

He said invitations were sent out to acting Commissioner of Police James Philbert and Deputy Commissioner Gilbert Reyes, a former Flying Squad member, but he could not say if they would attend.

“But we will let the Commissioner know what we decide,” Cordner said.

He confirmed that some of his former colleagues flew in from abroad to attend the reunion.

As one of the key members of the squad which was led by the late Commissioner of Police, Randolph Burroughs, Cordner said it hurt him and other colleagues to see the state of T&T and the dramatic increase in murders each year.

“We are tired of what is happening, and based on what we achieved in the past, I think we can offer some solutions to the present Commissioner,” Cordner said.

“We have experienced personnel who came out of that squad, some went on to become executive members in the Police Service.”

He pointed out that the Flying Squad was formed in 1970 after a number of soldiers staged a mutiny. He said it was the brainchild of late prime minister Dr Eric Williams to form the Flying Squad to look at the national interest.

He said the squad got the real test in 1973 when the National Union of Freedom Fighters (NUFF) threatened to take control of the country by unlawful means.

According to Cordner, “that was where the Flying Squad was really tested...We managed to bring the situation under control under the supervision of Mr Burroughs.”

The retired officer said the squad was disbanded in 1986 after Burroughs was arrested and charged with conspiracy to murder, and conspiracy to traffic cocaine.

He said the release of the Scott Drug Report also contributed to the Flying Squad being disbanded.

As a result, several members of the squad, who were suspended as a result of the report, retired or resigned from the Police Service after the suspensions were lifted.

“They were not happy with what happened and they left...Now, this is their country and they are very concerned at what is happening,” Cordner said.

“I think we have a great contribution to make, first to tackle gang warfare, and to assist in reducing the number of murders in the country...My colleagues are very upbeat about the reunion.”

Today’s meeting comes days after Reyes told the media that the Police Service had asked the Los Angeles Police Department to assist in combating gang violence.
   

Look something else here

Quote
He would be informed of any untoward happening mere minutes after it occurred and the Flying Squad would be on the backs of the key offenders before they could think of devising their escape.

To facilitate all this Burroughs operated an informal but quite functional office at the Red Spot Nightclub at Curepe Junction where gamblers, prostitutes, bad-johns, etc, from all over the country, freely associated.

Listen and listen well, there is nothing to a Giuliani anti-crime plan other than somebody assuming full authority and being given a free hand to manage as he sees fit the resources to do the work.

Why are we always unable to recollect how we dealt with matters in the past? We do not need to look elsewhere. The answers are always right before our eyes. Then, why this persistent collective amnesia? Why?

Is that what people want? You keep hearing rumblings that SUATT not constitutional..not legal...but...that probably is the closest entity to being what the flying squad was. Whispers also speak of Cudjoe's murder being something of the sort. So..really...what do we want? A Burroughs' manner approach....where one person controlling crime to an extent...but keeping it down for the sake of elimination of competition?


When I first saw the article, I asked myself the same question. I think dem men could only provide ideas and how to handle certain situations, but then again who will be listening.

I remember the days of Burroughs especially in he hometown Tunapuna and yes he ran things at Red Spot and other places.

Jamaica 2099,

Let me tell you  a little secret. T&T are going back to the world cup before Jamaica. I am willing to put my money where my mouth is , 3,000.00 US dollars.
Keep it. You're going to need it to pay for your medical fee when you lapse into a stroke on the same day. ;D


1  I am a young healthy vibrant man.
2  I don't put money on the table unless I can afford it. Read The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason.
3  You have showed me that you aren't cock sure that T&T will finish "5 of 6" in the Hex. I tested you and you failed badlly.
4  You are scared otherwise you would have picked up the money I put on the table.

Excuse me for taking so long to respond. I just came home from wuk. Enjoy the Hex!!




I am a Jamaican. You are a Trini. And as such 2 totally different individuals that know exactly nothing about each other. Otherwise, I'm stumped that someone giving the impression of a healthy, vibrant and rich young man seem to have no weight of the world on his shoulder.

I'm sorry, but unlike you I'm a deeply flawed human being.
You could say that AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!
Now that that is all clear. Have any of you Trinis been over Big Soccer website to check the predictions thread. 8) :angel: :whistling: :whistling: :whistling: :whistling:

Maturana wants Caribbean Cup.
By: Ian Prescott (T&T Express).


"Our dreams continue and, from tomorrow, we will start thinking of the Digicel Cup," declared head coach Francisco Maturana following Trinidad and Tobago's 3-0 victory over Cuba in the 2010 World Cup qualifier on Wednesday night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

"We feel satisfied. We have achieved the first objective, which is to qualify for the Final Round for the World Cup," Colombian Maturana said through interpreter Kamasha Robertson.

And having tasted sweet success, Maturana also stated his intention to have Trinidad and Tobago win the Digicel Caribbean Championships (DCC), which takes place in Jamaica from December 3-14.

"We are going to try to win it," Maturana said of the Caribbean Championships. "This is a fantastic opportunity for players like Khaleem (Hyland), Keon (Daniel), (Clyde) Leon and Aklie Edwards to strengthen and grow in the process."

Maturana was basking in the limelight, for a moment out of the long shadow cast by football pundits and media over some of his tactics on the way to the Final Round of CONCACAF Qualifying.

Clearly enjoying the moment, he reflected on many things, including his deliberate decision to develop inexperienced players.

"No one can say that Maturana did not give an opportunity to anyone," he declared. "This is a team of open doors and we have had the opportunity to look at over 68 local players. We've given the opportunity to each one and at the end of it we are going to choose the best players."

The Colombian said he could have taken the easy route and selected 15 popular players for any one match. He said, instead, he chose to give as many players the chance to develop with the team and show if they are up to the required level.

Maturana also defended his decision to include Wales-based winger Josh Johnson and Fulham keeper Anthony Warner in his squad, although they did not play against Cuba.

"Football is a game of teams and to be a team, first of all you have to be a group," he said. "And to be a group you have to live together. And although these players that have not yet played...they are part of the group. They know what are the codes...they know what is the discipline, and they want to know who they would want to emulate."

Maturana wants Caribbean Cup.
By: Ian Prescott (T&T Express).


"Our dreams continue and, from tomorrow, we will start thinking of the Digicel Cup," declared head coach Francisco Maturana following Trinidad and Tobago's 3-0 victory over Cuba in the 2010 World Cup qualifier on Wednesday night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

"We feel satisfied. We have achieved the first objective, which is to qualify for the Final Round for the World Cup," Colombian Maturana said through interpreter Kamasha Robertson.

And having tasted sweet success, Maturana also stated his intention to have Trinidad and Tobago win the Digicel Caribbean Championships (DCC), which takes place in Jamaica from December 3-14.

"We are going to try to win it," Maturana said of the Caribbean Championships. "This is a fantastic opportunity for players like Khaleem (Hyland), Keon (Daniel), (Clyde) Leon and Aklie Edwards to strengthen and grow in the process."

Maturana was basking in the limelight, for a moment out of the long shadow cast by football pundits and media over some of his tactics on the way to the Final Round of CONCACAF Qualifying.

Clearly enjoying the moment, he reflected on many things, including his deliberate decision to develop inexperienced players.

"No one can say that Maturana did not give an opportunity to anyone," he declared. "This is a team of open doors and we have had the opportunity to look at over 68 local players. We've given the opportunity to each one and at the end of it we are going to choose the best players."

The Colombian said he could have taken the easy route and selected 15 popular players for any one match. He said, instead, he chose to give as many players the chance to develop with the team and show if they are up to the required level.

Maturana also defended his decision to include Wales-based winger Josh Johnson and Fulham keeper Anthony Warner in his squad, although they did not play against Cuba.

"Football is a game of teams and to be a team, first of all you have to be a group," he said. "And to be a group you have to live together. And although these players that have not yet played...they are part of the group. They know what are the codes...they know what is the discipline, and they want to know who they would want to emulate."

De man is ah philosopher?  Ah eh know he so smart  ::) ::)

Jamaica better dont do something stupid like start with 3 forwards.

Canada is no joke and will poison you given time and space.

Jamica strength is defence in numbers .

Canada will put one on them in the counter if they not carefull.

Better to play with the standard 2 forwards and let the game come to them.

No way they making up the goal difference so they only hope is for Mexico to win and for them to win.


Unless I'm reading and interpreting the underlining tone of this post??? It sounds like you are actually praying that Jamaica does not advance to the HEX.
I guess the knowledge that T&T has beaten Honduras in World Cup qualifiers and not Jamaica would make me pray for that to happen too. ;D

Good, at least we doh hah to hear from you for a while.
