Maybe I haven't seen Hyland enough.  But to me it seems like him and Birchie is a bad idea.  None of them are play makers.  So in all honesty, say what you want but Theobald and Birchie would have to do for me until we get a driver from somewhere.  Honestly, I think that might be Carlos.

If Scotland and Sealy arent called up because of their form and lack of playing time then Birchall should be held to the same criteria. I dont agree with his call-up.

Have you been following the career/season of Chris Birchall ? I suggest you check Mr google if you missed the friendlies of the Galaxy this season and their present season results. Birchall plays in a 4 man midfield with Juninio ( Brazil ) Donavan (USA) Beckham ( England)  week in week out . Did you see him vs Real Madrid this season ??????????????
You should apologize for the statement you made above ...lack of form ? ...lack of playing time ?

We actually have 4 foreign based holding mids in Leon, Birch, Hyland and Boucaud, so it would be interesting to see how Pfister uses them. If only one is used I would pair him up with Hector instead of Theobald (Mr inconsistent)... Boucaud is capable in that creative mid role as well.

So !!!

Dont agree.

Sealy is a forward, ask yuh self when last he score ah goal.

Scotland train under Pfister last month and shit down he self and I hear that from good source.... de man shape like a hamburger, besides, he is not an international player, he is decent at club level, he eh score ah goes for T&T in years now....

I will pick Birchall over any T&T players right now, Birchall, James, Hyland, Peltier, Phillip and Edwards is 6 key players for T&T right now, and if Keon up to it, but yuh know how he does fall out of de game and sleep away on de field....

Right, my point was that i dont think Sealy, Scotland, or Birchall shouldve gotten a call-up

La Galaxy has played 25 games so far this season, Birchall has played in 19 of them and started 14 of them. He's 9th in terms of minutes on the field for the Galaxy. I don't think Sealy and Scotland can come anywhere close to those stats. And I think he has 1 goal for the season, probably more than them both combined. Lol.

So he starts a little more than half of their games on a team where Becks misses matches due to injury, Donovan for USA duty, and Mike Magee starts a lot in mid. That doesnt say much, does it?

My point wasnt to argue for the inclusion of Sealy and Scotland, but rather to question the inclusion of Birchall. If Sealy and Scotland dont deserve a call-up, then how does Birchall?

I dont need to google a team i follow closely. Birchall is not a regular starter, and when he does play its usually of the shit variety. Did i see him vs Real Madrid this season? Is that a serious question, or are you just trying to sound like a clown? For one, I did, and secondly, whats your point? He didnt stand out against a preseason side that demolished LA. And why are you putting '(Brazil)' or '(England)' next to Juninho and Beckham? Juninho has never played for Brazil and Becks hasnt for England in a while.

Im just saying none of them deserve a call-up. Just like we can accept Sealy and Scotland do not, so it should be for Birchall. Why he getting a free pass?

Supporter, they can't call everyone - The coach will call on players depending on his needs - not just based on who is getting regular playing time for their club team. Birchie eh no striker, and Sealey/Scotland ent midfielders...so arguing for the inclusion of them on the basis of Birchall's inclusion doesn't really make sense...  At this point, the message from the coach seems to be that he doesn't need additional strikers -right or wrong that seems to be the case.  If we're struggling in front of goal with the guys we have up top, those two that you call may get a shot in the future.

I haven't been following Birchall's progress at the Galaxy, but from what I know he's def more than a fringe player, and from what I read, it sounds like he puts in a good workman-like shift, even if he's not impressing you.  In our nat'l set up he's sorta labeled as our work horse, and he's proven to function well in that capacity whenever he puts on the nat'l colours....

Kicker, please see my above posts on this page as I address the point you bring up in your first paragraph (altho i can accept that we are dire in the midfield as is). Im not arguing for the inclusion of Sealy or Scotland. As for the second paragraph, well, if hes coming in solely to be a high work-rate man, and nothing else, and if thats the only characteristic contingent on starting for our natl side then good luck to us.

and we doh have the strongest team in the Caribbean?

I recognize 4 names on that squad, one play in the Prem (Jones), two in the MLS(Daniel, Birchall)  and one in Belgium (Hyland). As a comparison, Jamaica currently rotates between 6 MLs players, 5 guys in Scandinavia, and about 6 playing various leagues in England, together with the top local 3 from the domestic leagues...

I'd think based on that the strongest team in the caribbean is the Reggaeboyz...followed by you guys.

good suggestion, hector and birchall may be a good idea :beermug:

I dont think I ever asked that. I used the criteria for their exclusion and applied it to Birchall to show that he was in a similar state as the two. I agree S&S dont belong on the team at the moment. I'm adding that Birchall doesnt either.

Ok I hear you but yuh confusing the talk by bring them into your argument....Sealy and Scotland eh get call up, so if yuh doh think they deserve a call up, how their names even reach in the talk?  If you're using them as basis for disagreeing with Birchall's call up, then the reverse has to hold as well, otherwise what's the point even mentioning dem men....  So even though yuh not saying they deserve a call-up, by your reasoning it has to be implied that if Birchie get call, dem supposed to get called...as yuh say earlier, why Birchie alone getting a free pass?

That aside, I think it comes down to what the coach looking for and those are obviously different types of players we talking about.  Coach thinks he can use Birchie even if you think he's not in good form for his club.

Phillips
Power
James
Primus
Edwards
Daniel
Hyland
Birchall
Thomson
Roberts
Jones




i suspect this could be the starting team

 :beermug:

and we doh have the strongest team in the Caribbean?

I wouldn't say dat until we give dem yardies and Grenada (for good measure) ah good planass.

we are having a problem deciding a midfield right now im my opinion

the strikers are set for me, jones and roberts starting, stern and touissant off the bench

our back line is pretty much determined with players returning from abroad with edwards at right back, samuel at left back, center backs for now are james, primus and power.

the hoyte brothers are defenders, right back/center backs if both play, i would opt for a backline with samuel, edwards and the hoyte brothers or push edwards up to right wing and play primus at the back with james as a sub and power

our problem lies in the midfield, who do we play?

we have leon who is a holding mid, birchie the ball winner, hector a creative mid, theobald a defensive mid, daniel a left winger, tinto a right winger, thomson can play either right wing or center as creative, primarily hyland has played a defensive role in the mid as well.

as fire points out, what will pfister do?

 yuh eh see de man just marginalize we players. "so what allyuh have 4 top players, we have far more than allyuh" so jones eh nothing? the same man who pulis put more faith in than fuller,

so hyland eh nothing either ? show me one jamaican player who is playing, or good enough tuh play on ah champions league team, so birchall eh shyte either ? and he playing more games and have more minutes than daily or cummings,

daniels eh nothing either ? he went philly as ah temp fill in and now is in the main team and doing great.

de man eh even acknowledge julius james, one of the best central defenders in the MLS, and he's playing with one , if not the top team in MLS "the crew".

this man just brush we player under ah stink jamaican rug and you like ah lil wimp went running in his arms?? man fack RF and de cobo he flew in on, haul he stinkin mudda cant!!!!!!!!

When the coach is picking his team, two players will automatically be penciled in for the midfield position. Birchall and Daniel. The Question is which of the others to play along side Birchall. My guess as the starter is Hylandl

Re: Birchall, Hyland called up to T&T squad

Kicker, please see my above posts on this page as I address the point you bring up in your first paragraph (altho i can accept that we are dire in the midfield as is). Im not arguing for the inclusion of Sealy or Scotland. As for the second paragraph, well, if hes coming in solely to be a high work-rate man, and nothing else, and if thats the only characteristic contingent on starting for our natl side then good luck to us.

Ok I hear you but yuh confusing the talk by bring them into your argument....Sealy and Scotland eh get call up, so if yuh doh think they deserve a call up, how their names even reach in the talk?  If you're using them as basis for disagreeing with Birchall's call up, then the reverse has to hold as well, otherwise what's the point even mentioning dem men....  So even though yuh not saying they deserve a call-up, by your reasoning it has to be implied that if Birchie get call, dem supposed to get called...as yuh say earlier, why Birchie alone getting a free pass?

That aside, I think it comes down to what the coach looking for and those are obviously different types of players we talking about.  Coach thinks he can use Birchie even if you think he's not in good form for his club.  

Apparantly it was confusing bringing S&S into the argument, but it shouldnt be. They were brought into the discussion for the Birchy getting a free pass point of view. Either way, yes, if de coach feel he can use Birchy in a certain capacity despite club form then ok i can accept that.

When the coach is picking his team, two players will automatically be penciled in for the midfield position. Birchall and Daniel. The Question is which of the others to play along side Birchall. My guess as the starter is Hylandl
I doh know bout that, my feelin is allyuh not being realistic, i think nuff ah allyuh go get allyuh feelings hurt bc from what i read right here, if i'm not mistaken, someone mentioned that this coach love "sh!tsnake" clyde leon a lot, and don't be surprise if he starts houton hector in front of de golden boy which IMO would be ah great move since i rate houton hector very much.

we also have to see who is the best right winger for us, since edwards will play right back

so its either thomson or tinto on the right wing, the center mid will most likely be hyland, boucard, leon or theobald

since we have a ball winner in birchie, we need a creative mid that can hold possession and drop back as well, as you said hyland seems to be the fit as i indicated in an earlier thread i started but who knows, pfister may change his mind because hyland has played a more defensive role in europe since being there

hector comes to mind as creative and can hold possession, don't be surprised if pfister brings hyland off the bench to lock down the mid after we have scored and hold a lead

and we doh have the strongest team in the Caribbean?

I recognize 4 names on that squad, one play in the Prem (Jones), two in the MLS(Daniel, Birchall)  and one in Belgium (Hyland). As a comparison, Jamaica currently rotates between 6 MLs players, 5 guys in Scandinavia, and about 6 playing various leagues in England, together with the top local 3 from the domestic leagues...

I'd think based on that the strongest team in the caribbean is the Reggaeboyz...followed by you guys.



I must be ill. I actually agree with something Raggafart said.. :o
Allyuh getting forkin senile on this site or what, you agreeing with this slop! the man just insulted us again wid he stink arse, that's all he does come here tuh do, haul he mudda cant and tuh hell wid he and de reggae girls!

 yuh eh see de man just marginalize we players. "so what allyuh have 4 top players, we have far more than allyuh" so jones eh nothing? the same man who pulis put more faith in than fuller,

so hyland eh nothing either, show me one jamaican player who is playing, or good enough tuh play on ah champions league team, so birchall eh shyte either ? and he playing more games and have more minutes than daily or cummings,

daniels eh nothing either ? he went philly as ah temp fill in and now is in the main team and doing great.

de man eh even acknowledge julius james, one of the best central defenders in the MLS, and he's playing with one , if not the top team in MLS "the crew".

this man just brush we player under ah stink jamaican rug and you like ah lil wimp went running in his arms?? man fack RF and de cobo he flew in on, haul he stinkin mudda cant!!!!!!!!

reggaefan vigor in his attack has been lessened because our players are coming back on board and we have a world class coach

not to mention, samuel, warner and hoyte will join the team next rounds, so reggaefan will be mute

his attacks on our team is dependent upon our disarray and our admin not being able to have a competent coach or getting our best players available

if this is not the case, reggaefan starts talking nonsense and his attacks lessen because he is insecure and feels threatened by a full strength tt team with a world class coach

Sealy and Scotland we don't need. Darly, Stern combo worked really well... Why change that? Ok so we get Jones now but he hasnt really worked out for us yet... Kinda like the Yorke effect of old.. Doing well for United but eh doing shit for we.

As far as Birch is concern.. he is our best holding work horse midfielder hands down, he is second in perfomance charts behind Edwards.. So please stop with the scotland and sealy nonsense.. both of them are a waste of bloody time and the coach knows this.. MANNNNNNNN.

At the moment I rather have stern start over Jones b.c he working well with Roberts and we getting results and he scoring goals with Roberts.

has nothing to do with colour

birchall is the best ball winner we have, hes a workhorse in the mid, he has improved over the past 3 years and that is great for the team

right now he is the only ball winner other than jagdeosingh imo

Pfister invites 11 overseas pros for World Cup qualifiers.
By: Shaun Fuentes (TTFF).


Warner in, Primus out.

Trinidad and Tobago’s head coach Otto Pfister has invited eleven overseas-based professional to join the National Team for upcoming back to back 2014 World Cup Qualifiers against Bermuda and Barbados.

Pfister will begin training with these players on August 28 with a couple players arriving a day later due to club commitments. Pfister will also hold sessions this Friday and Saturday with the home-based players who have been invited for the training camp.

Leading the pack is team captain and Stoke City striker Kenwyne Jones along with Carlos Edwards (Ipswich Town), Khaleem Hyland (Racing Genk, Belgium), Chris Birchall (LA Galaxy), Keon Daniel (Philadelphia Union, USA), Julius James (Columbus Crew, USA), Jake Thomson (Kettering Town, England), Andre Boucaud (York City, England), goalkeeper Anthony Warner (Wellington Phoenix, New Zealand), Clyde Leon (Corporacion Deportiva Itagui, Colombia) and Lester Peltier (AS Trencin, Slovakia).

Defender Robert Primus, based in Kazakhstan, was not considered having sustained an injury which requires that he visits Moscow for treatment. English-based defender Jlloyd Samuel has been excused as he remains in search of a club.

Warner last played for T&T in a 2-0 win over Iceland in 2006. Among the clubs he has played with include Celtic, Liverpool, Norwich and Fulham among others. Boucaud was part of the T&T squad in the early stages of the 2006 campaign, last appearing in a 3-0 loss to Mexico in Puebla. He has six caps for T&T.

“We will have three or four training sessions with the overseas-based players in the team. That happens everywhere in international football today. I’m not worried about it. We have been monitoring the progress of these players every week with their clubs and we will do this again this weekend just to have an idea of the fitness of each player. Then we train here with the entire squad of players and prepare for the match against Bermuda,” Pfister told TTFF Media.

Ipswich Town’s Edwards says he raring to kick off the campaign, which will be his fourth World Cup qualifying campaign with 78 international appearances to his name

My game face is already on,” Edwards told TTFF Media. “I’m looking forward a whole lot to returning and joining the team. I believe our squad is strong and once we prepare well and put our minds and hearts to it then I see no reason why this team cannot advance in the qualifiers and get to Brazil. We know that Bermuda made things rough for us in the first match of the last campaign so we definitely know what to expect this time around. We will deal with them accordingly,” he added.

The final squad inclusive of the home-based players will be announced later this week.

The qualifier versus Bermuda kicks off at 4:30pm at the Hasely Crawford Stadium on September 2 . T&T will then travel to meet Barbados September 6 in another qualifier in Bridgetown.
