I still think there could be a big surprise waiting,the thing is we played badly in all the matches so far and "the law of averages" we are due at least one good match...a win against Martinique,now that would be better than gravy.There is also the fact that the boys may feel better because the weight is off their shoulders now,lets hope they play the football we know they can play.

Good point frico. You could be right, the pyschological stress was more than we might have known. In the video, keeper Jan was just sobbing and sobbing nonstop ?with joy like a man heavily traumatized silently by a prolonged painful high stakes war. That to me is evidence of hidden weight on his shoulders. So now they can play and ramajay! Push Molino up front and wide and pull 3 defenders with him on the left, Marcano on the right to pull 2 with his dribbling, layoff to the centre and BAM! Leon blasts a 25 yard corker down the center and T&T is back! Daiz a page from de playbook for Friday people. Iz all tactics and we had become too predictable and neutralized up front. Have to have some surprises and constantly changing tactics. Dem martiniquans eh stupid atall

I don't know if any of you have watched Martinique in this tournament, but they have been very good.  Very well organized, solid at the back, and capable going forward.  I think for T&T to have a chance they have to avoid conceding, certainly in the first 70 or so minutes of the match.  Plus, T&T have lacked any creativity going forward.  One thing that may help is their winger/full back Gael Germany was injured yesterday (not sure how bad) and he has been influential.  If the coaches are smart they will watch the video of Guadeloupe 3 - 3 Martinique, as that is the only time in the Caribbean Cup they have conceded more than one, and its a relatively similar team.  Martinique do have weaknesses, its just that I'm not sure T&T can exploit them.

You have made a good summing up of the situation and Jan Williams showed the weight of stress by all dem tears he shed,as i say we are due a good game and who knows if the Martiniqans isn't due a stinker,I feel like there is more surprises to come.Hope has risen again and whatever happens we can look at the future with a smile,i would love to see Jan smilling to-morrow.

Listen I like you a lot.  BUT.....according to all your predictions/analyses we were not supposed to progress.  T&T is a better team than we have thus far shown and now the pressure is off, we will see a different team.

T&T 3 Martinique 0

We will not only prevail, the Cup is ours for the taking.

I agree. I remember when our team hammered seven goals past Marinique at the Queen's Park Oval. That was one of the greatest days for T&T football and was a great sports day on the whole. On that day, Brian Lara was on his way to breaking Sobers' record at the time.

But that was back in 1994....

Now, we live in a different time, where the golden generation has long departed into the sunset and we now find ourselves in the midst of a veritable footballing dystopia, where our team just barely qualifies for a Caribbean Cup semi.

Sorry, did not mean to ramble or sound so nostalgic. It is just I remember what T&T football used to be.

Hard to call, as someone pointed out who knows if T&T will all of the sudden play to their capability.  If form holds, I'd say 1- or 2-0 to Martinique.

The only way we resting 3 on Martinique is if we score early and/or some seriously freaky shit happens  (which is not to say we can't win the game).

Apart from Hector and Peltier (injury), Aurbey David is also out (two yellow cards).

T&T face off with Martinique.
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFF).


Trinidad and Tobagoís senior menís team will attempt to accomplish another goal in the Caribbean Cup finals, this time to overcome semi-final opponents Martinique and secure a spot in Sundayís Final when both countries clash in the opening game of a double header at the Antigua Recreation Ground, St Johnís from 5pm on Friday.

T&T are already assured US $30,000 for reaching the last four but they have a keen eye on the Caribbean Cup and the winners cheque valued at US$ 100,000. The other two semi-finalists Haiti and Cuba will square off from 7pm,also looking to book a place in Sundayís Final at the Sir Vivian Richardís Stadium.

The two losing semi-finalists will meet in the third place playoffs at the same venue. The Runners-up will take home US $75,000 with third and fourth placed teams will take away US $50,000 and US $30,000 respectively.

T&T vs Haiti - Finalist for the Caribbean Cup. Christmas coming early for the Forumites.
 Believe and the miracle will happen, An early goal and then catch them on the counter. Get the ball to Guerra who could run down the middle and 3-0 is possible.
