Have some forumites gonna be in 309...I'll be I believe in 204 with a bredrin. But what I wanted to share is that in section E10 I believe in the parking lot I was informed a crew by the name TrinJersey gonna start d vibes from 12 with iron and pan etc...tailgate vibes. So walk with some food/drinks etc and hold a vibes. Link up would be good to meet all the fantasy league victims

Thanks for the heads regarding the TrinJersey crew in the parking lot. I'm bringing my sons and this would be great for them to experience. Few people will also be in section 319

Now Ariel Martinez abandon Cuba.
http://futbol.univision.com/article/2403018/2015-07-16/copa-oro/cuba/ariel-martinez-tambien-abandona-la

Just when you thought he wouldn't do it, he did. After all, he's been here several times and did not go for it. Some days ago he declared strenuously that he wouldn't. And, after being influential in qualifying for the quarters one would think he would stick around. BUT, here's the thing ... Cuba are unlikely to defeat the US, and once they lose they have to pack up. Logistically, it might have been easier for him to defect now.

Yesterday, I noticed that his play was really audacious and individualistic, especially after Reyes scored. Any bet he's been thinking about the shop window and the clock ticking on his career. Some of the past defectors have ended up at the Charleston Battery. He'll land on hi$ feet.

Also an interesting dynamic seeing some of the fans flying the Cuban flag during the game. I wouldn't bet against a contingent from South Florida working a sort of "underground railway" network, chipping away slowly at the idea.

These guys have torn allegiances. They have an allegiance to their country, but they also figure they have an allegiance to themselves. Article says he was crying on the bus on the way back to the hotel, then on arrival took off running until he disappeared from sight.

Here we are 56 years later and Cubans are still defecting, both Castros are alive, and the current president wasn't even born when the "revolution" began.

If a player as senior as Martinez could bolt, the whole squad could bounce.

I always wondered what post Castro would be like...

btw what is the policy now that 'normal' relations are being established if they make it on shore? will they get to ask for asylum still or will they get sent back like Haitians for example.

Based on all the international football we've seen this summer, I'm beginning to wonder if we will be able to associate countries with styles going forward.

Every team is looking to be organized, every team is dropping back 2 lines of defenders and trying to be compact. These fellas on tv describe play as if its a formula. Bring the ball wide, cross to the far post, take the shot across the keeper. It's all about the percentages.

Are the numbers ruining the beautiful game? Would a Valderrama or Riquelme have a place in the modern game?

Get in while the going is good. The Cuban Adjustment Act is still in effect despite recent adjustments in US policy.

I really didn't care who win between Ja and Haiti. Haiti had ALOT of opportunities to equalize and they could not find the net. They didn't deserve to win

Haiti squandered a lot of scoring opportunities in this tournament, they do well to build the play but the decision making and technique in front the goal is their weakness.

Do what you have to do to win, this
That game was terrible. It was like watching a yellow 2012 Champions league Chelsea.


Do what is necessary to win...Haiti was chasing the game after the 7 minutes, The onus was on them to score...JA's sole task was to prevent them scoring. Mission accomplished. JA's third string goalie stepped up to the plate and kept two successive clean sheets, they lost two key defenders this week trough injuries and disciplinary problems, they lost a key midfielder and striker also this week due to suspensions. All part of the game, everyone got a chance to contribute. Plaers like Austin, McCleary, et played 3 toughs games in the COPA, followed by what will now be 6 games in the Gold cup. 9 international games in the space of 35 days.

Strong defense is needed to make a deep run into any tournament. We will continue to bank on this aspect of our game to bring us as far as it can, while scoring when the opportunity presents itself. 2 gaols conceded in the tournament so far, one of the best defensive units in the the tournament.

Still two more games to go, and a guarantee of at least a 4th place finish.  Ill be in the Georgia Dome on Wednesday to cheer on the boyz...its been a long summer for most of the players..and fans.  Good luck vs USA, but the tactics have to be spot on to come away with anything...theres plenty at stake for both teams.
 
Hard luck Haiti, Cuba, good luck T&T vs Panama.

If yuh mean dis ... sure KJ, Balo ... either one will do.  ;D Fuh real, Haiti could have changed half the face of this tournament.

10 Haitians + a ruthless well-applied Balotelli and the US gone to Belgroves long time.

In the Copa America, JA defended one goal deficits without conceding another ... so yuh never know. Yeah they were behind then, but they have put dong a pretty good body of work in terms of soaking up pressure. But yeah, risky still.

The coach knows best sir.  I trust in him to employ the right tactics for the necessary outcome. He has been spot n so far.  I believe the USA will be up for a tough game...Jamaica needs not divert from the way they have played so far, strong in defence and disciplined in midfield will keep the game close.

Cuba has been poor all tournament, save for that one game vs Guatemala, who has been equally as poor.

OK so let we see if JA so called disciplined defense will give the US so many open opportunities in front their goal like they did against Haiti and expect the same result as today. Go brave!

the coaching staff will review the tapes of the USA and do whatever is necessary. We played an attacking game vs Costa rica and scored two goals...a more disciplined approach is needed vs the USA, the opponents must be respected.  The coach knows our strengths, and our weaknesses, so we play to our strengths.  Of course, the USA starts favorites...they are stillfavorites to play in the final with Mexico. Respect the opponents.

cuba should be banned by the cfu from taking part in this gold cup. their lacks attitude have delivered the golden boot in the hands of clint dempsey by giving this slog a trick and a six goal tally. i could honestly say that guatemala would not have lied down and took such a trashing. shame on this team. i hope to never see them again until they are serious about representing the region instead of using the competition to further their personal ambitions by defecting.
