Weary,
           It means a lot to me. That do mean I against the move that was made by the TTFF. What counts is results. Our results are poor. Change had to be made. But Let to be known, our downfall is primarily in mid-field. Secondly the team nucleus is based in the EPL. Right they playing SHIT, I hope Latas find a solution those two problems for the next game. Or he will get the "roses" from this web-site.

I guess the u-20's and the seniors will train as one side until the next game? I cah see Vranes abandoning them at this juncture...

ah could see some u-20 outperforming senior men in training, that is unless some senior men step up dey game(i.e if dey have one), i just hoping for de best yes.

men might be fighting down Latas because dey might suspect or know (for a fact) dat he played a part in selecting de team since he got appointed?

I always knew Maturana was going, would have liked a foreign coach though but Latapy is good too even though it is an interrim period.

I doh know bout all yuh, but it is obvious dat we going and get ah coach before de next game.....de team cannot be coachless at any given time, hence de reason to jes appoint Latas as de coach in de mean time......Doh dig no horrors, Latas role is on de field and as long as he keep fit, dat is where we will see him come game time.

Lets see how this goes. As with all things TTFF related...i cynically optimistic.
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

Well i hope things will change for the better. Though I agree with Pacho being out of the picture I am unsure if Latas will make this team better. Not all great players become great coaches. But it seems as though when he (Latas) is on the field that all the players' confidence seem to grow so I just hope this happens from him being on the sidelines. If one thing I am sure about is that the squad selection will be much better...........................................I also wonder with Latas being a national icon if he were to fail, wud the fans here call for his head as they did with Pacho?....

Also I would like to thank Maturana for assisting us so far in the campaign...Although I wanted him out I did understand his tactics sometimes....Sometimes a coach tactics works out and he is labelled a genius if not then he is called a hound..When Beenie brought on Cornell Glen vs Sweden instead of a defender, we fans applauded that bcuz it worked out but had we conceded goals we wud call him a dunce.....Had we won the El Salv game he might still be employed by the T&T. The main problem I think was his team selection....I wish him well in his future endeavours..

All the best to the Little Magician, he has the entire country supporting him. GO SOCA WARRIORS

Warner quoted on radio (91.1) as saying Maturana felt he didn't have confidence of players and thus resigned.
Interim coaches will be judged on match by match basis, but he believes the combo of Latapy and Vranes is a win win for all of us.

so he is player coach or just coach  ???

This is the million dollar question.

Now latas and yorke will not only take credit for when we do well.  Now they will not have the maturana scapegoat to fall back on.  When certain selections are made, i hope we can deal with it (or we might still blame matas for dat too)

ah love it!!

I think Latapy is making a mistake by taking the head coach position at this point.  He should have waited until this world cup qualifying campaign is over then take over when there is less pressure and build his program and team from scratch. 

Right now Latapy is jumping into a storm that he may not be able to calm.  The pressure is now on him to produce immediate results with a deficient team he does not have the luxury of time to experiment or make mistakes.  I hope Latapy succeeds in this endeavor because he has been dying to get to this position for a while now and he is the greatest footballer we have ever produced.  But I hope he realizes the the position he has accepted comes with lots of responsibility and lots of criticism.  If he does not get the results and the play of the team does not improve he will be called out for it.

So good luck mister magician.  I wish you nothing but success.  Hopefully the magic you were known for as a player will carry over into your coaching.

One thing i always hear Latas say during an interview when ever his age or on just him coming back to play for trinidad is, I ALWAYS WANTS WHAT IS BEST FOR MY COUNTRY AND I WILL DO ANYTHING TO HELP MY COUNTRY. So yuh cant blame the man for taking de wok because of the situation the team is in. And as it is now IF the man end up taking the team to SA or doing respectful and just falling short its still ah job well done. The man would not have taken the job i think if he know he could not have done better and not look like a total fool in the end...

I not blaming Latapy for taking de job.  I just don't think this is the best set of circumstances for him to be making his head coaching debut.  I want to see Latas succeed as coach for many years to come but at this time the odds are stacked against him.  Like I said I wish him all the best and I will be rooting for his success.

Congrats to Latas, once friendship out the way I see T&T doing good in the Hex.  

My only concern is that if things don't work out he will be chastised like Mats, a case of typical Trini mentality.

I so happy to see the back of Maturana. I making backflips. To me the #1 sign that he don't care about we, was his unwillingness to learn the language. Look how many foreign coaches we had who made the effort. The man disrespectful and was a shithound coach.
I love Latas for so and glad for him. But have mixed feelings
I don't want my image of Latapy the player, who brought me so much joy, to be tainted if he is not successful as a coach. And if he is not successful, I will be on the list calling for his head.
Also I strongly believe that Latapy's presence is needed on the field, even if just sparingly. The man is magic.
I  really hope is player/coach. and a big name replacement coming.
Latas for assistant coach player for this campaign and then Head coach thereafter, When for sure he too old, but I just not ready for him to end his playing days, and I don't think he can do both effectively. One roll will suffer to the overall detriment of the team.
But I supporting him all the way.
