Latas = Whitmore effect?
« on: April 10, 2009, 07:53:50 AM »
I remember when Jamaica fired Simoes after they lost to Honduras in Honduras and placed Whitmore as Head coach in an interim basis. 

That move seemed to lift the Jamaican side.  Although Whitmore's CV was also thin, he still managed to lead Jamaica to three striaght wins over Mexico, Honduras and Canada.

I am hoping that Latas' appointment, with his limited coaching experience, can do the same.

In many ways, Latapy and Whitmore commands the same sort of respect among the players on the respective teams. Only difference here is that Whitmore had actually coached Jamaica in 2 friendly games prior to simoes dismissal (2-0 and 3-0 friendly victories over centra American opponents)

Whitmore selected the right players I believe, he recalled about 7 players that were previously ignored by Simoes...perhaps a similar situation will happen when Latapy takes the reigns.

LOL. Let me refresh your memory:

Whitmore is the guy that scored two goals to propell Jamaica to its historic victory in its final group phase game at the World Cup finals held in France '98. The victory propelled the boyz to 3rd place behind Crotia(eventual Semi-finalist), and Argentina.

Now you know :)

Only a blind and foolish man will argue that Latas (and Dwight's) finger prints were not all over the squads selected by Maturana. But therein lies the dilemma (or as Maturana would say the differing viewpoint with the TTFF), if de coach cannot independently select a squad and match a game plan to suit the players selected then why have him as the head coach.  As far as I am concerned the buck starts and ends with the head coach. Maturana lived in Trinidad for the majority of the time since his appointment as opposed to Dwight and Latas. This was not to enjoy all-inclusives but to evaluate talent and assist in player development.  Two tasks I believed he failed at.  Now, if he can't do it for whatever reason then he needs to go. Beenie showed one thing and that was: Beenie and only Beenie was in charge of the final player selection and the on field game strategy.

There is no way Latas was picking squad for dem last few games. No way! Allyuh hear bout other head coaches that let assistants set them up against they will to lose big games? Or assistant coaches that know dey might get de job if de head coach get fired that stick dey neck out to help de head coach keep he job? Let we just wait to see what happens now because Latas is named officially as the decision maker now. Whoever advises him, or limits his options as far as players not responsible for Latapy's decisions as he was not responsible for Maturana's. If yuh not satisfied with the tools given to do yuh job , say so, or don't accept the job. HEAD COACH mean responsibility ultimately rests with you for final decisions!

I don't believe latas and yorke would pick 4 defenders for such important games, and to add insult leave out cyd and avery for wolf, and especially aklie who got murdered in chicago.

i don't believe that latas would used wolf in the first place further more endorse using hislop to replace wolf when we coulda put carlos in the full back position and use guerra as a winger which would be a better gamble, knowing that donovon and beasley was already smelling blood.

did anyone see when carlos switch to the left side after keon was subbed off? that's was to stop any more goals coming from the left side.

does anyone think that latas would use 3 forwards leaving the midfield porous, where most of the mistakes came from.

did anyone seen dwight's face in the post game interview? the man look like he wanted tuh cry! just like ah child who was about tuh drop dime to his parents on someone.

i think dwight told jack tuh get rid of this guy! @ least to me that's what it looked like.

if indeed it was latas and yorke who starred that ship in nashville, then allyuh forget about SA 2010! then again i have a premonition that them boys had very little say, and allyuh exaggerating much.

IMO all that shyte looked and smelled like pancho was the culprit all his own, or else jack would rid of latas just the same.
