Maturana takes responsibility for loss.

Maturana takes responsibility for loss.
By: Shaun Fuentes (TTFF).


Trinidad and Tobago head coach Francisco Maturana says he takes full responsibility for this country’s humiliating 2-1 defeat to Bermuda in Sunday’s 2010 World Cup qualifier at the Marvin Lee Stadium. Speaking to reporters after the match via translator Fillipo Alario, the Colombian said there was no excuse for the loss.

“I take full responsibility as coach of the team and I will take the responsibility away from the players,” Maturana said. “The loss is very disappointing but the game is history now. When we go to play… we go to win and that did not happen today.”

“This first game of the World Cup Qualifiers left us with a very bad taste in our mouth, in addition it was a pretty bad result. Asked what was his thoughts on the outcome the Colombian added, “I think Bermuda were just winners of the match. They played a very calm game and interpreted the tactical game well. With regards to the shabby performance by his own players Maturana stated, “We had a lot of moments of confusion.

“We did not find the clarity that we had in past games. He added. “We were too much in a hurry to reach in the opponents goal. “This is definitely an initial overview because this is definitely not over. I believe if we find the way that we were playing before this match we can turn around this result in Bermuda.” “For this result I accept full responsibility and absorb the players from this responsibility and take it all on myself.

“When you lose everybody is right and I will respect everyone’s opinion of the game. But at the same time I would like to reserve the right to confront and enter into any tactical discussion of what happened.

Asked his reasons for replacing attacking midfielder with Khlaleem Hyland at the half-time interval and introducing left back Ancil Farrier with the ‘Soca Warriors’ down 2-1, Maturana replied, “It was tactical decision and one that I will not like to get into, but I can reassure you it was with the intent on doing good.”

Maturana when question if there was any pressure on him now to get the required result on Sunday in Hamilton, Bermuda noted that he has been a coach for many games and will always feel the pressure to win. Looking ahead to Sunday’s second-leg which T&T must win by two clear goals to advance Maturana said, “I really can’t comment on how we will play, it’s more of an attitude issue than a tactical one.

Having seen his players waste a number of clear-cut scoring chances, the T&T coach added, ““Yes, absolutely there is a problem scoring goals for us. Our two guys upfront are among the top strikers for the country all-time but I’m off the philosophy that goals come as a result of good play and goals are the end game, it means we need to start playing better.

“Today (Sunday) I noticed we abused the long ball and that’s is absolutely not the way to approach the goal. The way to play is to be patient, play your natural game and the goal will come. Maturana added, that his team knew what to expect from Bermuda but just did not perform well.

“Yes, absolutely there was scouting of the Bermuda team, but the problem was not how Bermuda played, the problem was how T&T played. “There is a problem with our defense and we have the rest of this week to work on it tactically and we will try to fix.” Overall, the Colombian stayed clear of pointing fingers at any of his players individually and said that was the job for the media to do.

” I judge the team as a whole and how they play.”

Asked to comment on the second goal scored by Bermuda, Maturana pointed out that he was extremely surprised it did stand.

“I only remember that Clayton Ince had the ball in his hand... next thing I see it’s a goal," the Colombian concluded. The team resumes training on Tuesday at the Larry Gomes Stadium and will depart for Bermuda on Thursday morning.

He only now realising that.. c**t..we had Avery and Sancho available not to mention Birchall as a CDM so Telesford could be used as an extra defender..You could have got them into the Squad before the England game to train and get fit in time for Bermuda

3-5-2 vs Bermuda.. You so fearful of Bermuda that you hadda cram 5 in the midfield at home?  Be serious...  And he better not work on the 3-5-2 this week... go and try the 4-4-2 with Telesford at RB.. I know all dem reading this.. The man played RB for years at university and also plays it when needed at Islanders.. i not saying he a Bad CDM..he is actually ok there but now you need to attack try him at RB..His passion alone will cause him to excell in the position..



f**k off..you not getting any sympathy..

de players are talented but de team is not. denise Lawrence needs to be more commanding in de back and whitney(captain needs to communicate more with de players. let carlos edward be responsible for corner kicks not free kicks on the 18 to 20 yards from goal let de captain or someone else take the free kicks. it seems like the team is not focusing on the 10 yards apart support. that means when carlos gets de ball it must have some one supporting him. i am very concern on the fitness level of de team. even through de formation is 3-5-2.  with dis format it should have man to man marking. i think de players was confuse on de field.

But it is good he taking responsibility.

Notice not a peep from Corneal now...when we win he all front and center. In fact it take long for the post match comments to come out.

Also is worries in the camp

for all who assume that its a full time translator on board, u should know that is a RBTT director who is probably doing the team a favor more than anything else..

could put my head on a block that he is not a permanent fixture.

to play devils advocate here, if we had converted half the clear cut chances we created, we woulda win pretty comfortably.
It was in a sense one of those days, similar to what happened to honduras when we beat them 1-0 in honduras and they throw away about 10 goals and just couldnt score.
Now i agree we played substandard, but how much can a coach really coach men like stern and scottie to finish??
For all the crap we play, we still shoud have won the game.

I totally agree with his remarks about our lack of patience as well.

He score some points with his attitude of taking the blame, but he has a few days to make it right

several people are commenting about the team lack of cohesiveness and team spirit, someone in another post mentioned that the foreign based players were doing their own thing while the local based players were on their own scene...could it be an issue that the foreign based players have no faith in the locals?

and we know whose fault it is....Wim and de government of course.

Yes Touches, I too catching that vibe. The foreign based and FPATT members probably know what going on with selection and loose respect for the locals that get pick. It eh easy to know that your teammates who bleed for you getting s*it on and replaced what they would regard as a setta eh-ready-yet-players there not by merit but because of blatant exploitation. And jes maybe some impatience by some of the veterans thrown into the mix to make it even worse. I dunno, I jes speculating.

These problems maybe running deeper than people think. What I know for sure is that they not getting solved overnight by some rah rah cheering session.

allya doh get tie up

ent Cornmeal does translate for Maturana?
well I get this from a reliable source in the TTFF :devil:

the reporter asked Mats what went wrong and this was his real answer.
"these cornmeal people have me here as a fall guy and is them that making all the decisions so if you want to know anyhing talk to them"

this is how Cornmeal translated it
“I take full responsibility as coach of the team and I will take the responsibility away from the players,” Maturana said. “The loss is very disappointing but the game is history now. When we go to play… we go to win and that did not happen today."

Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all. Nay, worse, for it often misleads.

Correct. That's Arlene Peterkin husband if I'm not mistaken. Must be know Maturana personally.

Either that or Maturana realise that cornmeal eh translating what he really saying. CAuse I find it strange that teh first such admission of problems comes through a translator that is not cornmeal.
