Went to the game yesterday.

A lot of cards pass in the Army vs Central game. Central lost their keeper to and lost their game, I think 3-0.

Army just gets through the league with fitness and muscle. The team is technically a waste and the coaching is terrible. They play a very poor brand of football with no ideas on anything and I have been watching them a while now.

Army looks like a poor T&T national team who just eliminate their midfield and just kick the ball up the field with no idea what so ever.

Seems W Connection can only beat T&TEC this season ( ;D ) , they won 4-0.

Central basically self destructed. Army may not be Barcelona-esque but they are consistent, more like Keegan-esque. What you see is what you get and their game plan is to score more than the other team, so it doesn't matter if you concede 3, you just need to score 4. I was standing with Jan-Michael Williams for the first 15 minutes and he was commenting on how good Centrals passing and possession was, both last night and against St Anns on Tuesday. At that point, Mr Snell and Mr Hitchcock, the Pro League's seminar presenters must have thought the League leaders were playing in red, such was the game mastery of Central. But, as has been the pattern, The Sharks failed to find the net.

To me, the biggest turning point was the Army sending off. This forced a more defensive formation from Army, which seemed to puzzle Central. From that point, Central were allowed loads of possession in front of a 9 man defensive wall. As against the Rangers defensive formation on Tuesday, most of Central's passing went backwards and they seemed unable to get down the flanks, run into channels or draw the defenders out to create gaps behind. No Central midfielder wanted to gamble by making a run, so for the Army back four, it was virtually a day off. The Army midfield worked very hard to thwart the Sharks midfield and, of course, the Army are masters at counter attack.

So it went. Pressure in the Sharks 18 yard box forced a mistake when Harris and Charles fluffed around instead of clearing the ball and Jorsling penalised them. Then, after Charles was punished by being substituted, new defender Weslie John, was duped into a foul in the box by Jorsling.

Central's frustrations continued with very few penetrations into the Army last third while retaining most of the possession. The third goal was a joke, as Goodridge's sliced clearance twenty feet into the air was collected by Phillip and Ref Brizan judged this a pass back and awarded a free kick to Army. There was a lot of dispute from Phillip, but the Army got their kick around 15 yards from goal and the ball was slammed home. Phillip, already frustrated, presumably produced one cuss too many and Brizan showed red.

With all subs used, Byers, who began life as a keeper, went in goal.

All in all, a job well done by Army, but Central have to recognise that they were architects of their own downfall, which effectively killed any chance of a third place finish.

Marvin was always a bad boy when it comes to dealing with Refs....  :devil:

I remember in 2004, Marvin Phillip (Starworld Strikers) was fined $2,000 and banned from playing football for 20 months. It was reported that Phillip allegedly spat on referee Ramesh Ramdhan and the referee allegedly retaliated by striking the player.



The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Or just an address will do

"Crown Trace recreational ground".

When you leave Price Plaza, right is towards highway, but go straight on. About two miles along that road is an S bend with a turning on the left - Egypt Trace. Go down there and when you reach a T junction, turn right. Follow the road to the ground. If you find yourself on the Southern Main Rd, or Enterprise, you've gone too far, so you'll need to turn back. (You would need to ask for directions as some of the way back is one way)
