I dont think its fair to say the likes of Barbados and St. Kitts are better than India, at the very least, India should be on par with these teams. and yes, I do expect T&T to beat India in T&T.

If this helps, I recall Jamaica playing them at Loftos Road about 8 years ago, it was 3-0 win for Jamaica, in those days Jamaica struggled to score goals, normally scoring only once per game..

But India has improved since.

Unfortunately this thread gone on the racial highway. I think most of us are pissed off, not because we playing India. We are pissed off because that is the only prep. game before an important WCQ. We should have played about six games(including the game with India) before the Bermuda game seeing that we did not make the GC. Like most of allyuh forget Bermuda beat us at home last WCQ. Forget that we went Hamilton and win the return. We should have played the Haiti game. There is no excuse. None.

Now all this racial crap on the forum is totally out ah hand. Things start off with regular Trini picong and next thing we cussin' up one another. This is the 2nd time an Indian team will be coming to TT. Only one African team(south Africa) I think has played in TT. Correct me on that. Jack Warner has been a FiFA big man all them years. He has been bestowed with some Yoruba name. How many other African team has he brought to TT. With all his blackness how come he never saw fit to bring African teams to play in TT. Nigeria, Cameroon, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, Ghana, Cote D'Ivoire,Tunisia, Angola. Even Liberia and sierra Leone can givE tt real thunder.

I have no issue with the Indian game whatsoever. But plz, is this preparation for WC?

Nah, it must be preparation for Mastana Bahar, certainly not a WC qualifier.

bro when we continued to seek friendlies against Guyana & Grenada I was pissed. I have not been a happy supporter since I was humiliated amongst my friends in Tenn... (when we got blown out 3-0 by the US). All de race talk from this thread put aside... if your team holding Sweden and you playing India/Belize fuh friendlies, yuh under de rock at the bottom. However the administration have yet to hang they head in shame.

So it seems India is happy to be playing higher ranked teams because its not often they do so,we dont get many compliments these days so that is nice to hear,we are high ranking in India's eyes.I hope we can show that we can comprehensively beat India coz we are much higher ranked than them,nothing less than a 3 nil will do.

WE?! What do you mean by WE?!  ???

That is not WE team, that is the TTFF's team and they are not going anywhere with the current admin in charge unless Pfister is a miracle worker!!

Call me unpatriotic if you will but I'm hoping India gives that TTFF team a beating!!
They deserve it based upon their preparation progamme so far!  ;)

The man say something about some....... "big Indian winger, sorry magician just like Trinidad's own Hayden Tinto" ???

Then he end up with, people must come out and support, because unlike in the past he sure there would'nt be a problem if people support both teams?? ???

What he was talking about, or who he was talking to? Is it that he just trying to generate interest in the game via controversy or Trinidad is a different, different place from say the '80's?

Why all yuh don't stop the racist mess and concentrate on the game?  Either support or don't support.  All the ethnic jokes are unnecessary.  If India cut we tail ah want to hear what those same people will say.  With the mess that is our football admnistration, anything is possible. And I am not an Indian doogla or possess any Indian blood.

And I am not an Indian doogla or possess any Indian blood. 

Store, I could understand the bitternes. Many Indians have a lot of ethnic pride, as their language and culture still keep them binded to some degree to India. Some will prefer India over TT, other will obviously be Trini first.

Rightuflly any Trini would be insulted by this. It's the same in canada where many ethnic groups support the land of their ancestors as opposed to Canada, likewise USA and UK. In TT our ethnic mix is much less so we don't see a hundred ethnic groups that have lived in the country for a hundred years or less still maintaining close ties to their cultural homeland. As one person put it, it's "cultural pride."

Many Canadians get fed up with this, especially during the World Cup. Trinis have every right to be offended if local Indians like India over TT - and some will. But its no less surprising than to see the descendants of Trinis and J'cans living in N. America and UK support the land of their forefathers over the land of their birth. Are they racists? And they don't give a damn what their countrymen think.
Ask the locals living foreign, who their children support in football.

That's the way it is in many countries. Take it or leave it.

Personally speaking, I am always happy to see India do well but not at TT's expense.

And if we lose to this shit side, as a pennance the whole team should learn some chutney and go and peform on Mastana Bahar.  ;D

Again well said VB. well said.

As a Trini I used to be offended when I first learned Trini Indians supported the Indian Cricket team when they played the West Indies at the Oval. But living in NY, I've seen exactly what you're talking about.

I hope T&T do well but I hope the friendly serves its purpose--to provide the coaching staff the information they need to be able to make proper adjustments for success against our immediate opponents.

I don't think your comparison fits well.  The West Indians who support their countries even though they live in the US, UK or Canada are mostly 1st or 2nd generation immigrants.   How many generations have passed since the Fatel Razack landed?

Which is why I say I ent too upset if they want to support India.  How many ah we living right here in the US, in some cases we's US citizens, yet supporting anybody but the US?  Yes I recognize the central difference being that Indians in TnT is born-bred Trinis yet supporting some other country that ent give a fart about them... but that is their business if they want to throw 'way dey support like that.  Some would say the TTFF eh give ah fart about we supporters either  :D

I think you're right about the well preserved culture and language that imbues people with that connection to India. I don't think any other ethnic group in T&T embraces the popular culture and sport of their ancestral home more than the East Indian community and there's nothing wrong with that.

I want to agree with Peong that its not a fair comparison you made though. You can't compare them freshwaters with people whose family has been here for generations.

Regarding the actual football we need to respect out opponents and do our best to win.

VB you talikn madness dey, show me one afro trini who would support nigeria or ghana if they was playing T&T @ the hasley crawford? i know i would be supporting T&T all the way even if we had fojo, birchall, de silver, devenish and ah bunch ah white trinis on the team.

dem indians supporting india for yrs now, that eh nothing new, especially in the cricket.

i remember when bishan badi dem play WI in the QPO, them indians came out in the thousands to cheer for india. ::) i eh go lie, that angered a lot of trinis boy! and not just black trinis, but whites and fenchcreoles alike, the indo trini community didn't do themselves any favors that day.

imagine me supporting zimbabwe against the WI, that will be the day. :duel:
