Keeping Faith, I am not giving up on my Warriors
« on: April 01, 2009, 08:02:45 PM »
Ok... I know we are all upset from the shit we boys play tonight, Last qualifier alot of people wrote us off but we made a come back and surprised people. I decided to take some positives from the game.

1. It was an away game and we really did not expect to beat the U.S at home.

2. We got a point away in El Salvador, how often do we get points away?

3. We draw our first home game, which means we have to make up for that in atleast 1 away win.

4. We still have alot of games to play, this time last qualifier we did not have two points.

5. I believe we can get points away in Honduras.

Keep the Faith!

yeah man. never give up on your squad. 100% better performance than the semifinal round game in Chicago, but the game was still a carbon copy of our typical lackluster displays against USA on the road.

Most "Fans" ( and i use that world very cautiously) will not give up, we will all be on the net, watchin Tv, ears glued to teh radio supporting our team next game, but the team is not helping the dream right now...and as "fans" we feelin the pain..seems like we want our country to qualify more than them...game against Honduras...and the latter of the second half against El Salvador was just as painful as the US game..

My thing is not so much the fact that we lose but rather the manner in which we lost. At least if there was some evidence of playing simple football, moving the ball around , passing to one another, picking up on defensive assignments ....this game just showed some real lack of fundamentals. I also question Maturana's decision to pull off Birchall..to me, he was working hard and should have been there to the end.

I was also really disappointed in KJ....I liked how Stern played.

Positives

1) We have a whole 2 months to forget this travesty, both this and the honduras game

2) KJ have time to play himself back into form. He is woeful for T&T and also Sunderland at the present time.

3) Akile Edwards will miss the next game after accumulating yellow cards

4) Yorke will be back, hopefully

5) We theoretically played our hardest game of the round (some could say Mex in Mex too)

6) we have played only one home game. We have 4 more at home out of 7

7) Pro league will be up and running, more men will be match fit.

Will add more when the results come in later from the other games....

We still have a chance.  Next game:

                     Clayton Ince

    Julius James,  Dennis Lawrence, Keyeno Thomas

Carlos Edwards, Chris Birchall, Khaleem Hyland, Sean DeSilva,  Collin Samuel

                             Daryl Roberts

          Kenwyne Jones      Jason Scotland

Subs:  Marvin Phillip, Glenroy Roberts, Russel Latapy,  Dwight Yorke, Makan Hislop, Clyde Leon, Cornel Glen, Stern John, Osei Telesford, Jamal Gay, Keon Daniel, Sean DeSilva, Robert Primus.

Coach: Vranes or Fenwick, even Latapy.  Anybody but Maturana. he is wasted money.

And it is time to begin to look at young players like Glenroy Roberts, Sean DeSilva, Robert Primus.  By WC 2010 (if we should be lucky enough to get there) Latapy, John, and Yorke will be too far spent to survive the pace and intensity of the game but would be valuable as motivators and leaders of the team off the field as coaches.  Furthermore, we should be giving these guys a lot of games against quality teams.  We need to start planning for 2014.
Never, never, ever give up! Go T&T Warriors!

7 games to qualify we're still in the mix
« Reply #21 on: April 02, 2009, 01:31:40 AM »
We were expose in the weak areas last night, with the right adjustments and team selection and some changes here and there we are still in the mix. we have quality and talented players that were not selected money and politics played a major role/part. This is not our world cup squad. enjoy the ride.

agreed. never give up. I am also disappointed, but I feel for the players- unable to make the game plan work- they looked like maybe they didn't buy into the plan, who knows? did Maturana say anything after the game?
I really feel so sorry for those guys on the field who ran their  legs off with a terrible result.
anyhow- chin up guys!! we'll get it right next time ;D

You do realize  your starting lineup has  12 players, right Storeboy?  ;)...but I like the mix..

I would love to see Fenwick involved in our senior team setup  as well...but we all know that's not gonna happen as long as JW around..

All is not lost just yet...last WCQ campaign we had 1 pt from 3 games. After Beenie took over we managed 12 pts from our last 7 ( which isn't all that spectacular in itself) ...but we won 3 out of 3 home games, won 1 away game and fought hard but  lost 3 away games to finish with 13 pts. At this point we have 4 home games left...we must win ALL OF THESE!! then win at least one of the 3 away games (most likely Honduras) and draw the others. That would give us minimum 19 pts....which at the worst should be good enough for a 3rd place.
These permutations can provide some comfort, but in order to make it happen  we need a coach who can bring out the best in our players,,,clearly Maturana is not him.
Go warriors!

Well realistically...Costa Rica at home is the must win game. 3pts there, 3 from El Salvador at home..those are our "cannot mess up games". Anything less than maximum there and it's game over, unless we really expect to win at the Azteca or in Costa Rica.

We have to work hard for a draw against Honduras away (where they have been awesome recently) then hope the USA qualify when we play them here and beat them again like we did in previous rounds.

Mexico at home is the decider. If Sven still there, we could get the 3pts. If Sven gone and they scrambling to qualify, we in trouble. So our realistic scenario is to get a minimum 7 more points for a grand total of 9 which would not be enough.

We have to get 4 points from the two games against Mexico and the US at home to even have a chance.

Highly improbable with the current performances we churning out under Pacho.

Keep the Faith!

In the last WCQ we got a vital away win at Panama.  This time we missed our chance vs. El Salvador in the last minute.
Who we gonna beat away this rounds??  Honduras who just destroyed a full-strength Mexico 3-1??
