T&T WCQ Squad 2002
Ince

Mc Comie
Elcock
M. Andrews
Tallest
Saunders
Avery John
Rougier
L. Andrews
Eve
Dwarika
Reynold Carrington
S. Mason
Latapy
Stern
Yorke
Nigel Pierre

this was the core of the team dat at one point was ranked 25th in the world, and i really wonder how well dey would have done had they qualifed, i still think they're a better team than our current side. Our current stars aurtis, carlos, spann were on d bsidelines for this squad... yorke, stern, latas and dwarika were younger and sharper and probably at the peak of their careers, how do you think this team matches up to the present squad, better, worse or indifferent?

we have always had the talent but not the right coach and organizational support.

drop beener in the mix and we would have been in jap/kor 2002, france 98, USA 94.

The 2002 squad was more talented than our present squad. Today we are much better team. Much better organised and better prepared mentally.As soon as we entered the hex it last time it broke down. I remember when we got the draw in the semi-final round many wrote off our chances of advancing. It was Mexico , Canada (Then Gold Cup Champions) and Panama. We end up topping that group. After that it just collapsed. This team on the other struggled right through the qualifying. We have more heart and greater team spirit.

2002 was defensively more solid than 2006... Rougier, Dog, Elcock and Tallest was the most formidable back line we had since strike squad... hislop was in prime, ince was in prime...

2006 midfield is better than 2002... we now have a strong central mid with birchall, whitley, latas, yorke dropping in... and wingers who could at least cross it... in 02, there was a gaping weakness on the left midfield where we had stokely mason who couldn't cross a ball with he left for nutten

2002 forward line was better cause yorke and stern were in their prime, nigel pierre was doing things on de local scene and a couple others coming thru...

but all in all what make de 2002 side much worse than the current was ian porterfield!!! no discipline in de side, imagine 2002 squad with beenhakker as coach...

hard to believe eh...............BUT!!
fus alyuh ungrateful eh, stern was our leading scorer in our campaign for 2002 ( even with a man u based dwight, damn haters) as he was in 2006.. smh... nixon was in the 2002 team buh hardly played due to injury and d fact dat stern and dwight were the preferred stirke force. ansil ellcock was more solid on the left than avery john... reynold carrington was VERY EFFECTIVE as a defensive midfielder... the only weak part of this team was the left midfield which was occupied by stokely mason for the most part, this team was so strong dat usually dwarika would still have to come off the bench, i remember when we dismantled canada 4-0 in the semis none of our strikers scored, it was the midfied four, carrington, latas, mason and eve... we started to lose after we take 7 in the azteca, portefield was a better coach dan most realised and the turning point was when yorke fell out with rene simoes b4 the honduras game, at that poin we had one point after three games tho notably 2 of those games were away from home, then we just capitulated...
on another forum a dude ask when was the last time we went undefeated for such a long stretch of games which stands currently at six, it was this side prior to the 2000 gold cup with an undefeated streak of nine ( including a 4-3 win over colombia btw, stern scored a hattrick in this game) under bertile st. clair... just a fact for d trivia heads..

It is hard to say, but I think 2002 is better. I think that the 1994 team was the best we ever had.

this was the core of the team dat at one point was ranked 25th in the world, and i really wonder how well dey would have done had they qualifed, i still think they're a better team than our current side.

hard to believe eh...............BUT!!
Ok I can agree that Stern could try to collect the ball differently from the midfielders, but all in all Stern has had greater impact than any other player in the history of T&T football.  Yorke was scoring goals left right and center for Man U... how many did he score for T&T when he came to (half-heartedly) play? 3 against a confused Panama? ... Wait... Wait... let me re-phrase that... How many goals is he scoring right now for T&T?  But he get captain ent - and a stadium ent?  He walked out on the team - because Kapok hotel wasn't good enough and he wanted to talk to Jordan on his cell phone and kick ball at the same time during training-, eh score one in 2006 but in ALLYUH eyes he is a real boss!  
STEUPS.... and allyuh bussing talk on Stern - the only person that could score TWICE against Mexico UNDER PRESSURE and take us to the World Cup??!!

Bunch of ungrateful people.  Right now Stern will be going to the World Cup with more international goals than Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Henry, Yorke, Latapy, Beckham, Blanco etc.  In fact he will be entering this world cup as the most prolific scorer with more international goals than anyone else to be featured - and he deserves it!  
When he was sacrificing club to play for T&T, the Great Yorke  ::) was talking about how he was playing at the 'highest level' of the game and then knocking the ball on the ground 'tacks'  'tacks' at Kasey Keller just to say that he eh forget T&T.

STOP DISSING STERN!
Soca Warriors!  All the rest are joker warriors!

i hear all yuh say drop beenie in the mix and the 2002 squad woulda went to de wwc.well i don't think so nah cause ah coach could say wat he want if de players don't have de willingness to listen and carryout de coaches wishes on de field it won't work no matter your talent.and i think as the years pass from 2002 those players got older and wiser and willing to listen the drop beenie in the mix .that is call perfect timing.so ya can't judge a team on talent alone but on there connection and willingness to play a role in the bigger cause and this warriors team have that.

Yeah I blaming the coach. Look at Yorke under him; look at how he ruin Forsaell and Clinton Morrison and Pandiani. All them men was scoring goals before staying under him and tryin to adjust to his style of play. Stern adjust the way he played in order to suit Birmingham City and now it will take him a while to change that. Bad habits easy to pickup and hard to discard. But the man do it, cause he thought tha's how the coach want him to play and tha's what he had to do to make that Birmingham side.

But like a next man say, the side with Nakhid, Marcelle and a younger Latas and Yorke better than both those sides. I not sure if that was 98 or 94 though...
