It's good that DJW caught this in time because it could have gotten worse for us.

IMO, I can't see this taking more than 24 hours to clear up especially in a time where fax and email is the way now. The TTFA should have direct links to FIFA?

Hopefully, we'll see him suit up for the return leg?

Good job by all involved.



I was told it actually takes about a month.

Again, good job by David John Williams, if he didn't find this, we would have lost 3 points and given the fact that GUA won yesterday, our chances would have been worst.

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

Flex, what is the official word about Bostock situation. Would he be ready for next Tuesday, if not, for Guatemala?

Yeah I wasn't expecting it to be done nah. Plan for the worst daiz all. This trip with the team is valuable for him to get to know the guys and to see what Concacaf is like.

Not only that, he getting a birdseye view of how different players in attack move.  Providing he remains committed to the cause, this can prove invaluable later on.

I think the overall closeness of this group can only be rivaled by the strike squad.  The more they bond the better I think they can be.  Praying that snake with my last name DJW will do the right things and not get in the way of this teams potential.

one small but difficult question. Even with current full team, who sitting out ? Molino ?

oh: and we ain't run out Jomal Williams - midfielder ( nor Winchester or Plaza) and we playing one striker..

Trinidad and Tobago: 1.Marvin Phillip; 13.Justin Hoyte, 17.Mekeil Williams, 4.Sheldon Bateau, 2.Aubrey David; 8.Khaleem Hyland, 14.Andre Boucaud; 16.Levi Garcia, 10.Kevin Molino (20.Trevin Caesar 70th), 3.Joevin Jones (Yellow 34) (12.Sean De Silva 82nd); 9.Kenwyne Jones (capt) (6.Neveal Hackshaw 77th).

Unused substitutes: 21.Adrian Foncette (GK), 5.Daneil Cyrus, 7.Hughtun Hector, 11.Willis Plaza, 18.Yohance Marshall, 19.Shahdon Winchester, 23.Jomal Williams.

Yes I think based on form and playing style Molino sits for Bostock. Vs the better teams in the hex and Uruguay you will need 2 defensive midfielders so you can't bench Boucaud or Hyland. Bostock is more of a passing MF who can link the defence to the attack. Molino is an attacking MF. He will be competing with probably Garcia for a spot and again based on form and talent I believe Garcia starts. Now this isn't to say Molino can't start but I believe this depends on who we play. Also if he regains his form and Garcia doesn't play much more this season then he can start. Another wild card is the fact that Bostock's season is over, so by the time of the Uruguay game he would have sat for 3 months.

Nah, because Molino is one of the players that can make the runs to take advantage of Bostock's passes.

Yeah TM, u spot on

Hartie likes playing 4-4-1-1.  JJ is one of his wingers and the two def CMs sewn up (for the most part, w/Neveal or Kevan off the bench -- so far).  The other spot up for grabs is the other winger and Levi is pushing for that start.  Bostock, Levi, Cato, Lester -- those are the guys in competition, if anything Molino competition is Cummings.

BTW, I see some men saying our best CB is RAB, I rate him, def improved, but Bateau is our Pique, w/o Bateau the back two can look very suspicious.

That is one of the reasons, if not the main reason why we ain't in Copa.

The absence of Bateau. He makes good decisions. Especially important for someone playing very close to his goal keeper

Yeah, I notice your highlight afterwards,  :rotfl:  His absence certainly did not help.  But there is a post from Flex that talks about the need for this team to be together for a while to properly gel before the football begins to look like what we saw last Tuesday.  I think for us that s a bigger factor.

Funny, was watching a Roberto Carlos interview where he essentially said the same thing for the current Brazil team, in his words, there were enough stars back in the day to easily gel and understand how to come together quickly and play as a unit. IN today's Brazil he cited only Neymar and Willian as capable of doing so.

Anyway, just an armchair coach's perspective, but no lie, SB is a boss, wicked anchor....

The problem is Bostock is not a wide player he is a center MF which is why you need a midfield three. This is how I would line up, not saying Hart will line up this way tho. But Molino plays on the right for Orlando so maybe he'll play there for us as well.

Bostock

DW, Barca has shown the above formation can work but note their work rate, tough to name another team that plays the 4-3-3 with the same level of success.  For TT it is defensive suicide unless our work rate can hit that level, so in essence the above 4-3-3- becomes a 4-5-1 w/the two wingers playing as rt/left links and KJ is the sole man up front w/the CM/man in the hole pushing forward.

Think that's one of the reasons I think SH has settled on 4-1-1 for us, that withdrawn striker being able to pull strings.  Have not seen enough of bostock, can he play that role?  a la Cummings, Molino?

Bateau is certainly a world class player. Its a matter of time before a more prestigious club picks him up.

I know this topic is about JB, so I will stay on topic.. Cant wait to see how Bostock works with the team.

Barataria I agree using the 4-3-3 will put a lot of pressure on the wingers to track back, play defense and still run and put pressure on the opposition for it to work but that is the benefit of having JJ as one of the wingers. As Seattle's LB he has to go up and down the sidelines all game. I just think about everytime we play a good team, it looks like there's a disconnect between the defence and attack. Bostock can be the linking MF and counter attack starter that this team needs. We don't really have another player with his qualities. Maybe DaSilva but I'm not sure.
