We've come a long way....THANK YOU (Please Read)

I've been a member of this forum a few weeks before the second round of qualification for Germany. But I have been a Soca Warrior fan since the Korea campaign (I'm only 18). I wasn't a member of the forum before then, because I simply didn't know it existed. I would just like to say, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU. I have never seen a forum so dedicated and supporting. I would also like to thank everyone who keeps this forum going, the admins (you know who you are!)


We have come a long way, from beating Mexico 2-1 in the last game of scheduled qualification, to Dennis Lawrence's golden header that carried us above and beyond Bahrain to the World Cup. We have come a long way, as the smallest nation (population wise) to ever qualify to the World Cup, in our first year with a talented team and excellent coach, it is our turn.

WE HAVE COME A LONG WAY, so as team Trinidad and Tobago grace the pitch in Germany on June the 10th on a world stage, I want the world to not only witness what the Soca Warriors are made of, but I want the world to hear every single person in our 1.2 million populated country, chant, yell and get on bad!

Doesn't matter if we win, tie or lose, I will be a Soca Warrior supporter FOREVER! Who else is with me!

"Never before in the field of human conflict, has so much been owed by so many to so few" Or whatever it was that Churchill said about the RAF.  The same thing could be said of the Trini Warriors, not just T&T, but Scotland and no doubt many other nations and nationalities.  C'mon you fearless Soca Warriors, show the world what you can do.  We want ah goal.

 Here we go everybody ! Just a quick line to wish you all the best for Germay 06 and a big shout to our boy at Saints- JASON SCOTLAND.
We're sure you all know already but most Scots , being the nice people thet we are , have pledged to support the Soca Warriors through thick and thin in Germany. One match in particular should see the T&T flying high all over the country.
As you'd expect the sport stores Scotland are stacked high with every teams shirt for the tournament. English shirts are selling the slowest , T&T shirts are selling out faster than they can get them on the racks ! The Jason Scotland song is on track to be the biggest selling download in the counrty this week ( We are not joking ), and the whole nation has been treated to huge Bill-Boards off the face of Jason next to our favorite Soft drink.
So come on boy - make some noise -  do us proud !!!!

ALL THE BEST OF LUCK FROM EVERYONE IN SCOTLAND !

Tiny islands, big kicks
Trinidad and Tobago brings soca style to the World Cup.
By Davan Maharaj, DAVAN MAHARAJ is a Times deputy business editor.
June 9, 2006


EVEN BEFORE THE World Cup kicks off today in Germany, Trinidad and Tobago has already scored its first goal: becoming the smallest nation ever to reach sports' premier event.

Forget about sports. This is the islands' greatest moment — the country may be small, but it's two rocks, not one, floating in the Caribbean Sea. Better than that time at the Montreal Olympics in 1976 when native son Hasely Crawford won the 100-meter dash to become the world's fastest human. That was sweet, but it lasted a mere 10 seconds. Better than the announcement in 2001 that the nation's most famous son, V.S. Naipaul, had won the Nobel Prize in literature. Many Trinbagonians, or Trinis as we affectionately call ourselves, burst with pride at the news, but others couldn't care less because Naipaul had so often directed his world-famous sneer at his own birthplace.

ADVERTISEMENTFor me, this World Cup heals a 23-year-old emotional wound. I was 11 years old when Trinidad only needed a tie against Haiti in 1973 to qualify for the last World Cup held in Germany. My friends and I excitedly partook of the giddy feeling of an entire nation united in a soccer craze. I can recall how, in the tropical rain, we would kick the carcass of a soccer ball between burned cane fields, pretending to be members of the Trinidad national team (although we really wanted to be Pele).

When the decisive game in Port-au-Prince came, the good news was that Trinidad scored five goals, Haiti two. The bad news was that Haiti won after the referee recalled four Trini goals.

Trinis were convinced that "Papa Doc" Duvalier had bribed the referees. FIFA, the world soccer body, probably felt so too, banning the officiating team for life. But that was little solace. Haiti went to West Germany, and Trinis were left with broken hearts that couldn't be mended by all the rum shops in Port-of-Spain.

There was a chance for redemption in 1989. All "TnT" needed in a home game was a tie against the U.S. to advance to Italy. Things were going well — until former UCLA star Paul Caligiuri kicked an entire nation in the stomach with a goal in the 31st minute.

But now we have made it, and the party is on. There is some introspection too. Superpowers can afford to be nonchalant about their team being in the event, but on the islands, there is a search for greater meaning. Maybe this team can bring the various races together. Maybe it will unite people to beat the crime spree. Maybe, just maybe….

Many Trinis at home and in Germany are taking bets on another sideshow: the chances that Trini fans will outfox the vaunted German police and get their steel drums and percussion instruments inside the stadium to cheer on their team. German authorities have set up a special cultural village for the panmen and percussion players, hoping that they would sap their energy outside the stadium. But with banners proclaiming "Small Country, Big Passion," the Trinis say they want to spice up the German cities with Carnival-like parades, including soca, steel drums and their famous hip gyrations — what we call "wining."

Oktoberfest in Deutschland might never be the same.

Trinidad is the southernmost outpost of the Caribbean, resting seven miles off the Venezuelan coast, but being in the World Cup reinforces the national sense that Trinidad may as well be where the Ganges meets the Nile, to quote a popular calypsonian. Trinidad is the birthplace of calypso, steel drums and the Mother of All Carnivals.

THE ISLANDS' predominant races, Indians and Africans, fused their rhythms to create soca, a new form of calypso. Hence the name of the TnT soccer team: Soca Warriors.

Calypsonians are pumping out Soca Warriors tunes that would fill several CDs.

"Tell dem we reach/Everybody reach/Go and tell yuh family/We going World Cup in Germany," goes one ditty by the TnT Soca Boys.

Another by dance hall soca star Maximus Dan boasts: "I'm a Soca Warrior, win or lose I'm a fighter. I'm a Soca Warrior, come to shine my nationality brighter."

Bookstores in Port-of-Spain have sold out of English-German dictionaries. The German embassy in Port-of- Spain reported it has issued several thousand visas to Trinis and are processing many more last-minute applications. Some Trinis have mortgaged their future to pay more than $6,000 to see the games in Germany.

Trinidad is the prohibitive underdog in a first-round group featuring Sweden, Paraguay and former colonial ruler England.

But one can hope, and hope boisterously, as I expect the local Trini posse to do when it gathers for matches at the Caribbean Treehouse restaurant in Inglewood. I will be there.

« Reply #54 on: June 10, 2006, 12:14:23 PM »
I would just like to say, to all the doubters who were saying that the rest of the C'bean were not supporting us, that you all were 100% wrong. Going on to different C'bean message boards, especially at www.islandmix.com the support for the team as they played today was astounding. There were Bajans, Vincies, Jamaicans almost dying of a heart-attack everytime Hislop pulled off a spectacular save and they were all rallying around the Warriors. They were even saying that they were Soca Warriors too. So today, the TnT team have not only made Trinbagonian proud, but they made West Indians proud.\

Vibes it up!
