John ruled out of tonight's affair.

John ruled out of tonight's affair.
By: Shaun Fuentes (TTFF).
[/size]

Trinidad and Tobago suffered a late blow on the eve of their friendly international against Austria as key striker Stern John sustained a knee injury and has been ruled out of the encounter at the Ernst Happel Stadium in Vienna.
The injury was a frustrating one for John who had to leave the field in an uncomfortable mood after a collision with goalkeeper Jan Michael Williams as the team went through some finishing drills at the match venue on Tuesday night.
What started off under a relatively cool conditions turned damp for the Coventry City man as he went in to meet a cross and met a rushing Williams at the top of the six yard box resulting in him receiving a blow to the chest and then a follow through knock to the left knee as he landed. He immediately walked off the pitch in limping and was observed by team doctor Terrence Babwah. He underwent a scan in Vienna on Wednesday morning which reportedly showed sprained ligaments but means he will take at least two weeks before being able to engage in action again. It is obviously disappointing news for the T&T top striker as he has been enjoying good form of late for his club and is nearing the end of his contract at the Championship Division team.
This now means that head coach Wim Rijsbergen will possibly start with Jason Scotland and Scott Sealy in attack as John was already on a flight back to Birmingham by mid afternoon on Wednesday. The team is now down to 16 players with defender Dwayne Jack being unable to make the trip.
“It’s the most disappointing thing to have to miss a game because of this kind of knock and it couldn’t have come at a worse time,” a disappointed John said.

I think he is more worried about the fact that it would keep him out of action with Coventry. I could understand why club managers get upset about their players going to play for their country. Who knows Stern could have ended up top striker in the Championship and after coming off the cut on the ankle this 
is going to be a big set back.

That is about the only positive we could take from it. Stern was pushing for a contract extension and dis come at a real bad time. De manager done screwing bout birchall  coming for a friendly and benching him, he might'nt be so charitable with this one because stern INJURED....and out for about 2 weeks.
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

Very sad news. Terrible time for John to get injured and also very bad PR for us in the Country vs Club disputes. He was crucial for Coventry's push for promotion. I hope it's just his lateral ligaments and not the cruciate ligaments inside his knee.

Big blow also to our strategy for the Austria game. T&T's play does rely on a fair amount of cross balls from the wings and long balls from defense serving men who are strong in the air (Stern, Jones and yes Glen) so with John out of the picture, we have to depend on Sealy, Scotland and Toussaint who do not score with headers. I guess we will have to convert to an all ball-along-the-ground game and expect the midfieild to be very composed in ball control to serve these forwards while the Austria midfield rushes us to decrease time on the ball

The only, sad to say, "blessing in disguise" is that Sealy gets the chance to prove himself over a full game probably and the stikers get a chance to combine without John for the first time in years to see how the experiment works. John as target striker with back to the defense, encouraged us to be slack in midfield as all the defenders had to do was bypass the midfield, boot it long up to him in a crowd and because he was so strong he used to make something happen. Jones had a similar capacity. With both out it will be a TOTALLY different strategy with relatively short Sealy and Scotland, not to say midgety Toussaint.
