Jamaica, one can tell they have more in their tank. However.

1. After they scored they try to just play procession football and not burn out themselves. Remember, they have a German coach and they are known for strong defensively tactics, hence the reason JA conceding the least goals (+2) in the tournament group stage alongside USA. But its sad in a way, because Jamaica flair they had has gone. The days of attractive football with the likes of Theodore Withmore, Gregory Messam, Andy Williams and Walter Boyd has gone.

2. They almost paid the price though, because as terribly as Haiti were all tournament in front of goal, had they been on target, Jamaica plan could have backed fire.

Kemar Lawrence is a solid left back.

Darren Mattocks was missed.

Lance Laing was effective when he came on.

McAnuff was not his usual self.

Austin was decent in the midfield.

Of all the Jamaican foreign born players (Morgan, Hector, Grant, Dawkins),,,, McAnuff, McCleary, Barnes and Adrian Mariappa looks the best.

I can see, Cuba getting ban from the US one day, that defecting of players is not good.

Some good observations.  Haiti came into this game with momentum behind them, having secured their spot on the last day of group play. The media was behind them, suddenly they were everyone favorites to beat Jamaica. 

Schaeffer is a tactician.  Analyses Jamaica's games in the group stages, wide open game vs Costa Rica, scored 2 conceded 2. Next game vs Canada tactics changed, more of a possession game, bulk of possession, left it late to notch the winner, secured qualification, then in the final game, again they switched off, allowing the Salvadorans tonattack while looking to break on the counter. Another victory.

Whereas Mexico sent a B team to the Copa, Jamaica sent the bulk of the squad that's at the currently goal cup. Schaeffer himself acknowledged that he would have to employ he necessary tactics to prevent player burnout.  Its not easy playing two international football tournaments over a 30 day timespan.

Normally energetic players such as Austin was a shadow of himself last night.  Then they have to hop onto another flight to play in the stifling heat of Atlanta again on Wednesday, then back to the North east after that for the final/third place game.

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.

Ah feel yuh. It's a contribution that echoes recent comments by Dynamite Warrior.

Basically US law and policy is kicking up a backlash of consequences regarding the game on the field.

One could ask: wth did they need visas anyway when they could just otherwise reach and stay in the US even if not arriving at an official port of entry. (Just highlighting the gap in reality and policy). If their admission could have been facilitated earlier, we hope they wouldn't have taken 6 in their opening match.

Dey get blows for late arrivals and dey get blows for early departures (defectors). Untenable issue.

Anyone here willing to entertain the thought of an all Caribbean showdown for the third place game? The football gods would really need to smile down hard for us to have even one team in the championship game...I anticipate they will be using referees from UNCAF and Canada for the semis... expect them to be pro US/Mex/CRC/PAN and anti JAM/T&T

That was a thief...

Anyways TT was practising penalties before the match and Cyrus take a brilliant one to end the video from Fuentes so it was funny to see him using an injury as to why he kick overbars

With Trinidad they can play brilliant one minute and the next they play a game you would not expect, like tonight..

The most beautiful game, filled with corruption...

could you blame them? there was barely 2000 trinis in the stadium yesterday which is a hop skip and a jump from new york city where over a millions trinidadians reside. could you imagine a trinidad tobago vs jamaica final in pensylvania or georgia, who would attend? i saw more east indians from trinidad at that game than any other demographic from trinbago, who said indians don't like football? football is about money and there must be either a mexican or an american team in the final to make it feasible and i certainly don't blame them. by the way mexico was the better team hands down and the referee probably did them a favor by not prolonging the inevitable.

by the way the referee in our game was simply the most biased ref i have seen in a while. he gave us no calls even when the two jones were fouled out of their minds. it was really lousy officiating.

East Indians from Trinidad? Why not just say trinis were there.. Most trinis i know were watching the match on tv but I think we could have pulled a bigger fan base in Toronto than New York.. Just need time to promote it..
