Will T&T be allowed to play at home by FIFA?
« on: August 22, 2011, 02:07:53 PM »
Just a thought, but when there has been unrest in countries and an SOE is declared, teams are advised not to travel to these countries. If its a SOP of FIFAs not to request teams visit countries under an SOE, the match vs Bermuda could be moved elsewhere.

Certainly, if I was the Bermuda coach, I would refuse to travel for fear of my players being in danger. Now we know that won't be the case, but if I was the coach and I could remove T&T's home advantage, I'd do it!

What home advantage? 2,500 people being inflated to 6,500 by the organisers just to make the attendance sound better than it was?!  ;)

Bermuda has just as much home advantage playing in T&T as playing in Bermuda!  :devil:

Is that what the man said ?? that he wants to take away our home advantage ? Coops I staring to wonder now if you eh have ah script already ! From what I read the writer was engaging others in what is possible ...nothing wrong wid dat ! An old soldier like you should remember the refrain ..." the more we bleed in peacetime the less we bleed in war "
The man clearly stated that as the coach of Bermuda he would try to remove T&T's home advantage given the present circumstances...how does that translate to him being against the players ???

None of us know how this curfew will end ...things could happen ..and as an opponent, as the bermuda coach is , he must seek advantages and this is certainly one . Coops ah know yuh busy and you eh read what de man say properly ....I know you will now .

Maybe we need a game in this time as a sign of something positive. Even if the masses can't attend, TV6 can show the replays over and over and over just like how TTT showed the Little Mermaid during the attempted coup.....I know dat movie by heart now

Come now Coops, you serious?

And, by the way, any westerner travelling to a country in a state of emergency will be advised by their government not to go. I have people emailing me urging me to "get out while I can". a state of emergency is a massive statement that  creates the impression that the police can no longer protect their citizens. People on the outside don't understand its just a jokey thing.

But you should be very aware that this can be used as an excuse. You may even see British & US clubs refusing to let their players travel home.

Very good point FS! Some folks don't realise how damaging to T&T's international image declaring this unnecessary SOE is!

England had riots over 4 days where historic landmarks were burnt down and did not declare a state of emergency! Why? Because they know how damaging declaring a SOE would be to their international image, affecting tourism, business investors, sports, etc!

T&T offically has a jokey government that has no idea what damage they are doing to our international image as far as I am concerned!  :-[

Never a dull moment in T&T football eh. it's always some nail biting scenario, even when we qualified against bahrain wid the arab boy kicking the ball out of jack's hand. ::)

FS lets hope all goes well, and don't give the bermuda football federation no ideas , please.

The time of the game has already been moved to 4:30 with FIFA approval because of the SoE. I read that on this site in another thread since Monday.

Thing is Coops, having a history of calling SOE's just projects an image overseas of consistently unlawful behaviour. It paints a picture of a nation's police force continuously fighting to maintain control. Living in Trinidad, I see that is so far from the truth. Yes, there are crime problems, but generally the country is safe. Rolling out a list of SOE's and a coup paints a completely different picture.

Point is England just had major riots and they never found the need to call a SOE here! Yuh feel crime not high in certain areas in London?!

Perception and reality are two completely different things!

I have folks quizzing me about if itís still safe to plan to fly down to T&T for Carnival 2012! And when I assure them that Carnival in T&T is far safer than any Carnival in London they looking at me in a funny way like I just trying to be patriotic and prepared to lie to them because I from Trinidad!  :-[
