A point worth mentioning, hinted at before, is that this team that did us proud in Antigua by reaching the Caribbean Cup finals was largely a local based side, playing against very tough competition with players like those in Martinique exposed to French league play or strikers for English Premier League teams such as the striker from West Ham.

Fellas, Trinidad & Tobago football has to be improving thanks to the Proleague when players in that same league cyah geh pick such as my favourite Kerry Baptiste, Glen, Shadon Winchester, Britto, Hayden "legendary-scorer-in-Mexico" Tinto, right wing back Kern Cupid, Jayson " super-right-wing-sub-in-Guadalajara" Joseph, Bartholomew, Leon, Adams, Central FC's Anthony Wolfe, and many others as seen below in the Proleague website .. not to mention there is not much anxiety with the absence of Keon Daniel, Birchall etc. Even just cool eh feelin' de need as much to crusade for Roberts selection for Caribbean Cup level. We seem to be finally reaching the point where we almost do not need the foreign based Carlos, Bateau, Primus, Peltier, Kenwyne, Julius James, George, Birchall, Cato, Mr midfielder in Belgium ... Hyland, Boucaud, Roberts, JLloyd Samuel to resue us at Caribbean Cup level. Note as we step up we WILL need some of them, so doh geh me wrong as a propagandist for buy-local only.

http://www.ttproleague.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=972%3Awi-sports&catid=26%3Apromotions&Itemid=1

This is exactly what the team managers, new PR people in the trenches like Central FC's Football Supporter, league stakeholders like Skeene, advertisers, TV stations, radio stations, businessmen want to see and will help shed a spolight on the local league. Before, people who don't really follow the league would have said, " who de hell is Guerra. I eh going to see no football with shittongs like he. Where he come from? Where? Nah, not me and people like dem." Now, even some of the cynical ones on this site might dare to pay attention when Richard "who-de-hell-is-he" Roy scores for Def Force. Stars are becoming  .... local. More league attention --> more crowds and waggonists ---> more league stature ---> more media coverage ---> more sponsor money ---> more prize money ---> higher player morale --> more player effort ---> standards rise --> player slaries go up  ---> more players get contracts --> T&T wins more tournaments --> ranking reach above 70, more europe picks, more international prestige for T&T, less resistance by euro/ US employers to new T&T talent abroad... and on and on.

Well in all fairness to the commentators, one did say we were technically competent and technically better in running into spaces and reading the game. from what i saw we tend to play with passion when we are a goal down. Congrats to the coaching staff and players. Guerra could be our next standout player. At least he can take the ball and run to goal. He understands the main thing must be the main thing.- Going for goal.

Molino and Peltier too, these guys run at the defenders.   Molino is very skillful and can pass the ball like a true professional.  Gay wants to play with his back to the goal alone...and when he does run it is the little short runs, he needs to have the confidence to go at the defenders.

At times he looks pedestrian and other times he is speedy...confidence???
I dun tell you bout this gay fella already, but go head, keep wishing on stars.    :-[

Gay is a good striker bro.  I am not sure if he is told to play with his back to teh goal as a lone striker, but when he is on..he is on.

I don't see the pro league games, but thought it was surprising Tinto did not feature in the 23 (re-dreamer's pt), has he dropped off?

We come like Italy 1982, I will take it

All of Martinique's French players were rested after the Group Stage.  The team that started last night was all local-based.

Hey that is a lame excuse...like the crow feathers stuck in your craw?

If their coach in his infinite wisdom rested his players he did so thinking he was strong nought to defeat T&T.

No way h would simply "
rest" players in arguably their biggest match to date for several years!

If they had won the game he would have been lauded as being tactically astute, because he did bring in his two most influential players to date and one of them did score.

We are a better team than Martinique..and at full strength we will put a further separation still.

get it right.

Then that's their own fault. why rest your best players in such a crucial match.

BTW didn't i not see piqiuone or what ever his name iz blow a penalty?  :thinking:

No question its their own fault, clearly their priority was to make the Gold Cup.  However, he did say that T&T were up against those players, which was the point I was making (that they weren't).  That's not to take anything away from T&T's accomplishment either.

You know as well as I do that penalties are essentially a crap shoot as well.

well dey had 90 minutes plus 30 in extra time to dispatch our rag tag warriors and could not do it, and then we out performed them in teh "crap shoot."

See them in the God Cup.  If their priority was ONLY o make the world cup den he should have kept his aces on the bench...mission  accomplished.

The FACT that he brought them on shows otherwise.

Thanks for posting the highlights Firebrand. I cannot express enough how proud I am of the performance in the penalty shoot in particular, especially when T&T were down 4-3 and then had a chance to win after Martinique's fifth miss.

Another impressive aspect of the shootout that the Warriors were also kicking from behind, in the sense that the score was always 1-0, 2-1, 3-2. 4-3, etc. The composure from the guys was amazing.

Both teams actually did very well in the shootout. They could teach some of the more established teams a thing or two about penalty shootouts.
