I thought both wing backs did a decent job yesterday. I am an Akile fan. It would be nice if he goes abroad .

He had one crazy giveaway to a Honduran attacker that we were lucky to escape from. Besides that he was solid.

I don't know the specifics, but is too bad he turn down the Red Bulls. De more promising young players we could ship out of here the better.

I think Anthony Wolfe did well too, the honduran left winger was a speed demon and he was able to match him for pace and didnt let him get behind.

Another one who could only get better in that position. I think our wingback positions are well served at this point. We  need Dog now to hold up the central position with Tallman. Things are working out. We WILL qualify.

Which is why Coach Maturana put Wolfe to play right back yesterday.

Seon Power would have been too slow

Cyd of 2 years ago even would have been ok but he eh have dah pace again

Spann is toots

It have nobody else....so IMO...brilliant use of resources by Maturana.

Whoever believe dat he doh scout de opposition is highly gullible.

As fuh Akile....respeck Omar.  One a de few dat was willin to give de yute a break.

Copious amounts a crow servin up fuh de haters wit every game dat pass.  It have curry crow, bar-b-q crow, stew crow, roast crow, jerk crow fuh sam and sando  :devil:, it even have a crow pelau....but fuh de likes of brownsugar and weary....it have a specially prepared...SUSHI CROW fuh allyuh!!  ;D

Nah Controversial, de young fella played good, made one mistake but otherwise was solid!
Wolfe did not do to bad himself and I don't think we need to call back Dog.....as good as he is but Dog and Tallest need to play with some of the potential players in their position who not gettin call, i.e. JJ and Marshall!

Actually in an interview Maturana said that he doesn't study the other team but prepares his team for the way he wants them to play. I honestly believe that the Wolfe move was brought about by Latapy. As I said in an earlier post it is either the Corneals that were sabotaging the team or Latapy's input is way more than many believe. This team is totally different to the pre-latapy days under Maturana. It cant be coincedence!

That may well be the case.  My only contention is that whenever something positive happens witgh the team, it's always credited to someone other than the coach.

On the other hand, once it's something remotely negative...it's ALWAYS the coaches fault.

As for Maturana saying he doesn't study the other team...you REALLy didn't take that LITERALLY did you?  AH mean...why did he go to EL Slavador prior to the El Slavador game?  To visit old friends?

My take on that comment was that he was saying he can't concentrate on what the other team is going to do, rather he focuses on getting his team to play to the game plan and play to their maximum potential on the day.  Coaches everywhere say the same thing.  To actually believe that Maturana does not know who Sauzo, Palacios, Pavon, Costly are, what they can do, and what roles they play on their team is stretching it MIGHTILY.  No wonder the coach cyah do anyting right fuh some if dem have dat mentality.

I not sayin Latapy has not had a positive effect, but to give credit to Latapy alone or even majorly for the teams "improvement" is disingenious at best.

So all it takes to play RB for TNT is pace?  It have nobody else with pace in the whole of TNT football?  :o  Why not start Cornell Glen there instead, I think he has more pace than Wolfe and spent his whole career as an attacking player like Wolfe too so would have done even better.  It was a dunce move, we were just lucky that Honduras threw away the many chances that originated from the left side.

Both had ok games, but Wolfe was caught out on many occasions. He have d fight , and pace, but he still lacks the sense of positioning imo.....and I gurantee that the US will know that also..

Well the good thing is that pace is the one attribute that can smother other weaknesses, weakenesses that can be coached into playing the position properly.

And yes i agree that we shouldn't be trying to coach anybody into playing a position at the international level. But we have exhausted most options

they have no thing as give the lad a break in this boyo...serious business

But once Akeil on the field i supporting him 100% but hopefully when Pro League start we could see better options... Spann should come back home and play MLS or pro league at RB and once he get his games in he is the  best option...he still young and he was the RB under Beenhakker for quite a while

Hopefully Cyd could have a good season as well...but Wolfe was ok yesterday..I always wondered why he never played RB with his pace and aggression...Glenton Wolfe playing LB for connection... we could have both in the Full back positions come June...our very own Da Silva's(Man Utd RB and LB)

There is no disingenuity on my part re Maturana. If you read carefully what I am saying is that Latapy is the real brain and tactician on this present team. To me Maturana is nothing more than a figure head kept in place by Jack. Before Latapy came on board how many games we played with 2 strikers? He himself said in the pre latapy days that he plays with 1 striker. So lets me put it plain for peeps on the board. Its Maturana team in name only but Latapy's philosophy on the field.

sure he needs to step it up just like some of our SENIOR players who who aint stepping shit up right now...quick to tell the youth step it up when we have seniors in the team aint doing shit but we would just say they (the seniors) have a quiet game and give them a break lol..and is Julius a central defender?...and if he is then why draw a reference to him in this thread by saying he is waiting in the wings when we know Akeile is a LB..

i always hoped Akile woulda work out, my thing was whether he was de best we had to offer at left back at present..still find as ah left footer he should be doing it to men...Akile if yuh reading do fraid to pick up some moves (dribbling) from Keon, it could only help yuh game.

Oh, and about Pacho eh getting credit, IMHO (as ah man who doh drink and watch de game against USA in chicago sober) unless Latas get fired or leave de wuk and de team still do kinda decent, no effing credit for Pacho!

I was one who pong Akile Edwards when he played shit so I have to commend him when he plays well.  In the last two games he has shown a lot of improvement.  Even though he gets minimal help from Keon Daniel.  I hope Akile Edwards continues to improve and gets to play overseas soon.

I am not a fan of akile but he was decent yesterday but keep in mind honduras didn't play good.  The US will be a good test to see if he really improved.

what i was getting at with Julisu James is that we have limited quality options at RB at the moment and maybe they can consider him as a wing back since it's highly unlikely he's going to break into that central defensive partnership of Lawrence and Thomas (though i dont see y not...)

or as someone mentioned b4...how bout the U-20 players...worth a try maybe in some friendlies
