Interview with Latas
« on: August 29, 2005, 09:05:20 PM »
Fellas Got the inside scoop that Joel Villafana is supposed to be interviewing Latas at 4:45 PM EST(ASSUMING THE FLIGHT ON TIME LOL)Foreign-based can follow on www.i955fm.com

Sorry I couldn't give a transcript of this evening's sports talk on 105.1fm, but I was helping one of my neighbors. DID manage to call in though and give my squad choice for Saturday as well as raise the Glen absence issue. Was a nice discussion. For those who tuned in, you realise NO 2 people had the same team? One CONSTANT from the callers AND panel though - Stern on the bench!!! And yuh check how Collin Murray waited until everybody gave their's before naming his?

Patriot out

Nice squad Patriot, but do you think Edwards could last... He has been injured for so long and I don't think he has played a full game for a long time..

The reception kept cutting off but he was just answering basic questions about fitness, why he came back etc. Also he said if we don't pick up at least 4 points in these 2 games he probably not coming back for the last 2 matches.  To me that doh make sense because we still could come 4th even if we lose to Costa Rica.

Also Jack made some announcements about the tickets but I didn't hear it.  Maybe they drop the price or something?

like nobody does watch TV6 news in Trini again?  I sure they must be show the interview there

All I hear was Jack saying something about a special gift to celebrate independence and the return of Latas and making the game available to the average man in Toco and Mayaro....

I believe Jack was urging people to come out and support the team, but I think I picked up something about the game being carried live on TV.

I guess that was the Mayaro and Toco part.....to enable everyone in TnT to see the game. 

Papers tomorrow will confirm I guess.

DOES THIS NOT BOTHER PEOPLE??!! read that line over again to yourself and think about how sad that is. we're going backwards. what happened to the no man is greater than the team and that you are here to battle for your country all the time, and not when you feel like.
he is essentially saying he will only play for tnt if they goin to the world cup. i feel sorry for guys like whitley and wolfe, and edwards, spann, etc... when i read that line.

This is a good template.

 It recognizes the need to put Spann as a right wing back who showed in Connecticut good defensive qualities to handle any speedy leftwingers. He shows responsibility in that position,does not panic in a crowd of players and passes off the ball intelligently. (Occasionally holds on to the ball too long in danger zones (midfield habit)). Overall, this lessens our vulnerability with Gray and Atiba against the crafty Guats.

Sancho is appropriately at center back and not on the wing where his lack of some pace would be exposed against the 1-2 passing Guats. I was pleased with him when I saw him at Connecticut. Lawrence's absence and replacement by Sancho may be a blessing in disguise as Lawrence may have some vulnerability against these players who keep the ball on the ground rather than in the air.

Yes, Avery on the left but he has to stay back and not venture too far up the flank.

Whitley and Carlos will have to really run their hearts out tracking back to help Avery and Spann respectively to double team their wingers.

Some worries about Birchall in that sort of sweeper/Jamerson position.  Showing alot of defensive fight lately. That is good. Has nice on the ground passes but has a tendency to cause a turn over every now and then in a crowded field and when done so deep in defense, that could be disastrous.  So one may say switch him with Whitley. Well, Whitley could handle the job as he has done but he has more attacking and skills to offer as Patriot's plan suggests. So I will go along nervously.

THe rest is fine. I had been thinking of Yorke as a high attacking midfield giving Stern a shot but I will concede to pushing Yorke up (now that Latas is behind him and Yorke is match fit now).  By not having Yorke in midfield we are able to pack the midfeld with another player with defensive contribution. Remember, tactically the players can shift as the need arises.  I believe Yorke understands this which is why he personally asked to be kept as midfielder after the USA game.  However that was before Latas agreed to come on board. Keep Yorke as captain.

Jack has proven himself and is blocking everything in sight. His crossball weakness might not be exploited as much against Guatemala.  I still worry about his ball distributon weakness. It is a factor in our lack of ball possession and adds up. Shaka has that aspect down pact.  Shaka will have to play in Costa Rica most likely. But we will see.

Sealy is ready and bursting with confidence. Has some of the Glenn breakaway speed and will relish the many poaching opportunities provided by the enriched midfield and expected shots/rebounds.
Supportin' de Warriors right tru.
