Maturana not comfortable
By: Nigel Simon (Trinidad Guardian)


Soca Warriors coach, Colombian Francisco Maturana says he is not comfortable with his teamís situation going into its crucial away 2010 Concacaf Second Round World Cup qualifier to Guatemala tomorrow from 10 pm T&T time.

When both teams faced off in Port-of-Spain last month, the Guatemalans got an equaliser three minutes from time to earn a 1-1 draw and its first point.

Guatemala then whipped Cuba 4-1 at home, while T&T went under to the USA 3-0 away.

Speaking after T&Tís 9-0 warm-up win over Dominican Republic Maturana was very cautious looking towards the match.

ďIím not comfortable with our position because I have learnt what is football and the day I donít have that pressure or worry or pre-occupation about a match is the day I will be back home in Colombia seeing about my horses,Ē said Maturana.

He dismissed any notion that he was now in a quandry over his team selection, and more importantly his choice of striker/s for the qualifier.

ďIts always very important that you have forwards who want to score. That is football but in this sport, two plus two does not always makes four.Ē

The 23-man T&T team left yesterday for Guatemala, with only one injury concern, striker Stern John of Southampton, who sat out the Dominican Republic friendly.

T&T squad for Guatemala:

Dwight Yorke, Russell Latapy, Carlos Edwards, Christopher Birchall, Darryl Roberts, Clayton Ince, Avery John, Khaleem Hyland, Dennis Lawrence, Osei Telesford, Jason Scotland, Marvin Phillip, Cyd Gray, Makan Hislop, Aklie Edwards, Clyde Leon, Keon Daniel, Anthony Wolfe, Andre Toussaint, Cornell Glen, Keyeno Thomas, Stern John and Gyasi Joyce.

Does anybody else feel we would have been better off leaving Joyce in Piarco (no offence to him) and taking a third goalkeeper?

If every week you have to hear dat jack bring een another player would you be comfortable ? ..if at the end of de month is jack who paying yuh salary would anyone be comfortable ?
Interferring Jack is there for de money .....jack would lick up his own vomit if that is what is needed to bring in " de funds " ...
Jack once described Yorke as his biggest mistake in life ..and Latapy as persona non grata not to play for T&T again !!! look what happening now ! You want de stadium full ...bring Latapy ...even if he have ah walking stick he could still draw crowd ...i could see it now ...de revenge !!! 1989 Latapy was on de losing end ..dis time he is out for revenge...come see USA vs &T ..de revenge of latapy ...stadium , jack's pocket full , full !!
win lose or draw ..jack wins ! dat is businessman !!!

Way Akile Edwards going? Investing in him is like betting on snow falling in T&T. I will leave out saying how much better Sancho is than Edwards. Why not carry Guerra, wait Osei Telesford in this too, lawd fadder. I thought we were getting serious and is the best team.

I take it to mean dat he was asked sumting along de lines of how does he feel going into the match about the warriors chances or is he happy or comfortable that the team is where he wants them to be going into de match, and he answer dat he been in football a long time, anyting could happen on de day no matter how yuh prepare, and he does always be worried before every match.  If he didn't have dem "butterflies" before every game den he woulda be retired from de game and back home on he ranch.
