Regarding the left back issue, Glenton Wolfe in the squad as the back up left back. True, it will be loathe to see him make his full international debut in Costa Rica but who can give us an idea of how he looks for North east Stars. What kind of player is he? Speedy or slow? Overlaps or stays at home? Has good ball skilll or just kicks it out like Avery? Wildman like Cyd Gray or composed?

Being the eternal optimist, I believe we must all say our prayers for our warriors in Costa Rica! Coming off of the win at home (which I am proud to say I witnessed!), I see all things are possible if we believe. No matter what happens T&T fans need to leave the baggage of the past in the past and come out for their team no matter what. I have been a fan for a long time and witnessing the unity coming out of Saturday's game was a powerful feeling. May we take that with us for the rest of the games!

having the opportunity to observe CR up close. I would say that they are far from what they were. they lack consistency and a truescoring threat. Their overall team speed is not good and their gking is suspect. definately they are cutassable

I have seen Glenton Wolfe play and he is not a wildman, in fact he is very composed sometimes too composed to the point of complacent because he gives the ball away a lot, lacks aggression and does not look up early nor does he play early balls ( which is something Dwight will straigthen out) but he looks usable in that position if they can make sure he does not try to dribble the ball down the sideline and lose it like I saw him do once too often. He has talent as a defender though ( has a good blade)  but his left foot coming forward is not a killer-left like ( like Roberto Carlos kinda ting) it is more a curling left like Avery kinda ting

That does not sound too encouraging Solo. That is not the kind of profile we are looking for now unless he has improved since you saw him or you saw him on a bad day. if that's the case, put Sancho back on the left (reluctantly I say so) and let Dog and Tallest sweat it out in center-back. Note too how close the stadium crowd is to the players. We will need players with nerves of steel and good hearing.

Those stats gunman posted are only goals scored in the final Hex..... if you count last year qualifiers then Borgetti probably has 13 plus goals...

‘Warriors’ go for the advantage.
By: Shaun Fuentes.


Trinidad and Tobago will be pressing for the advantage away from home when they face off with Central American giants Costa Rica in their 2006 World cup qualifier at the Ricardo Saprissa Stadium, San Jose from 8pm (10pm T&T time).
Team captain Dwight Yorke says he foresees a “very difficult” match for the Warriors but is not counting out the possibility of a positive result, particularly on the back of a inspiring come from behind 3-2 win over Guatemala in Port of Spain on Saturday.
A charter flight will be arriving in San Jose through the efforts of team sponsor TSTT as well as CLICO with Honourable President Max Richards and other fans coming to support the ‘Warriors’. FIFA Vice President Jack Warner will also be on hand to witness the affair. Yorke and  company awoke for a 9am breakfast and had their first session in San Jose at 11am on Tuesday followed by a second one at 7pm.
With the match being played on artificial surface, coach Leo Beenhakker made  a request for two sessions and was  allowed to conduct two separate one hour sessions.
Following a five-hour stay in Miami after leaving Port of Spain at 9am, T&T’s footballers set out on the journey to San Jose and touched down around 7:15pm,  Costa Rican time and were immediately escorted through immigration before having to brace through a heap of Costa Rican media with several TV cameras surrounding the team bus, making the entrance to the bus at least a couple minutes longer than anticipated.
Upon arrival at the TryP Corobici Hotel, the “Warriors” were greeted by more cameramen, including a couple who have been camping out at the hotel since early Tuesday morning which started much earlier as the sun is fully up from 5:30 here.
“It’s nothing new in football,” Beenhakker said.  “But we are here for a match and we know it will be played on an artificial turf. There’s nothing to complain about but to just go and get on with our game.”
Defender Brent Sancho, because of his dreadlocks was mistaken by reporters for Russell Latapy and some of his teammates couldn’t resist laughing at him being to get through some shouting “Russell, Russell, how do you feel?”
“Obviously we’re here to try and get a result. A victory would be great but we know that Costa Rica are also on a high and they will be going all out to get the three points,” Sancho said.
The morning session was watched by a host of Costa Rican media as the “Warriors” went through their paces, getting accustomed to the new surface. The conditions were cool with a strong wind coming across the tight venue which puts the fans virtually on the backs of the players on the pitch.
And having played here alongside Latapy when Costa Rica won 3-0 back in 2001, Yorke said his team is prepared for anything on the night.
“The surface is not a problem at the moment. But we expect it to be a difficult match for us. We know that the Costa Rican fans will be trying to make it very hard for us on the night but it’s not something that should throw us off. I am hoping to be part of a very  entertaining game because we know that our team is a good one offensively and so are the Costa Ricans,” Yorke told TTFF Media. “But in saying that, we need to be as tight as possible at the back and ensure that we don’t give anything away.”
Latapy has been most popular among the people here who have jumped at every opportunity to shake hands or take photos with the him.
“We know it’s going to be tough out there because this is the time where all the teams will be trying to get results. But at the same time, there’s no reason for us to feel we can’t get something out of this match,” Latapy said.
Costa Rican head coach Alexandre Guimaraes has been suspended for the match after being ejected in the last game versus Panama. The homeside will undoubtedly look to the services of Ronald Gomes, Paulo Wanchope, Winston Parks, Jafet Soto and Walter Centeno.
Beenhakker added: “It’s not anything big because he (Guimaraes) isn’t playing. We must be as ready as we can be and try to get the best result possible.” A victory will push T&T to ten points, same as Costa Rica while the T&T faithful will be hoping for Mexico to do their job on Panama and likewise USA on Guatemala.

Costa Ricans prepare for War.

The head of the Fuerza Pública has reminded soccer fans that the encounter in Tibás Wednesday is just a game and not a war, but his units are preparing for war. More than 400 officers, including the Unidad de Intervención Policial, will be on the job inside and outside Estadio Ricardo Saprissa.
The way the North, Central American and Caribbean Conference shapes up is that  the U.S. team is guaranteed a World Cup trip. México is almost certain to be at least No. 2 in the league and win a berth also. So Costa Rica is competing with Trinidad and Guatemala for the third berth. Then the two remaining teams will slug it out for the right to meet an Asian team as the fourth-pace finisher and a possible World Cup trip.
In short, Tico spirits are high, and the Fuerza Pública head, Comisario Wálter Navarro, is warning fans against carrying anything to the game that could be thrown on the field, such as glass bottles. He also warned against flags and banners that had wooden staffs or similar. Police will be inspecting each fan as they enter the stadium. In the event of a Tico victory, fans will find heavy police presence at critical spots in the city, such as the Fuente de Hispanidad in Los Yoses, a traditional celebration site.
The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Even back in 1989 we had a problem with giving up early goals?  I wonder what is the earliest goal T&T has ever scored (from 1989 to present).

Stern John scored after 48 seconds when we played Haiti in the Stadium on July 29, 1998 in the semi-final of de Caribbean Cup. De final result was 4-1. He also scored in de 1st minute when we played the Dominican Republic in a World Cup Qualifier in the Oval on June 23, 1996. De final result was 8-0.
