Coach Hart's tactics were spot on. Absorb pressure in the first half and press dem in the second half.
Face it, we don't have the conditioning to press for 90mins. (3 games in 6 days).
The Mexicans had no chance to make any 2nd half adjustments in the locker room.  :beermug: :beermug: :beermug:

What are your thoughts on the moments when we seemed to fluctuate in absorbing pressure (almost needlessly?) Even with the own goal he had absolutely no business reaching for that ball with his body positioned like that), I still feel we conceded another goal unnecessarily because we were not seizing the advantage.

poster above was makin d point dat we doh have d conditionin to press for 90min but we always seemed to find it when we went behind so I don't agree with him

Risky strategy by Hart but it worked and to be honest we can press for the entire game... But why would we, it doesn't make sense... Mexico wasn't expecting the onslaught in the 2nd half...

Nice work, Trinis! Way to deliver a body blow to the Mexicans!

And it was especially sweet after seeing your player getting showered with all those bottles, cups, etc. while taking the corner!  :pissedoff:


Was thinking the same damn thing. We didn't play like c**tS and still handled our business.

Three out of four Caribbean teams make the second round: Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, Haiti. 

Cuba the odd man out, largely because of non-football issues that overshadowed the team in the first game.

Cuba made it. So four out of four..

That's right!  They were celebrating!

Real good Gold Cup for the Caribbean thus far.

Central America had a very poor showing.

I think its more of the Caribbean becoming better instead of the Central Americans having a poor showing. CFU never lost to any UNCAF teams.. So I think we gotten better as opposed to them suddenly not playing good.

Seriously Mexico owes us an apology for all those bottles and ice they rain down on our players. Like WTF??? They come to TNT and we treat them in the best way and take our losses with no hard feelings then they do this.

The Mexicans are only showing their true colours. Next time we meet them we must beat them mainly as punishment for their supporters being so nasty!  :yellowcard:

It's not just Mexicans.  I went to the Copa America two weeks ago in Chile, and the organizers actually had two stewards with umbrellas at the corner flag deflecting ice, coins etc whenever a non-Chilean player was taking a corner.  Just football I guess.  Not Mexican only, though.

Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, the outgoing president of Croatia, said corruption was so embedded in her country that at school children who cheated in tests were celebrated as “heroes”. A recent Eurobarometer survey found that a majority of Croatians felt affected by corruption.

Sound familiar, T&T?

Yuh doh soak up pressure. Get a goal kick and kick it up the field and give them back the ball. When we played the ball on the turf we look decent except for that Kenwyne give away. Pressure does buss pipe. We need to attempt to possess the ball to help the defense especially if conditioning is an issue.  Mexico was not pressing us high. We could have done more with the ball. In a knock out game they would have been pressing higher. We should have recognized that and kept the ball on the turf more.

dislikes. can't believe i am saying this but i miss jan micheal williams so bad. had he been between the sticks he would have at least saved two of those shots. i had it with this marvin bloke. once he starts to let in goals it's like he loses his concentration and gives up the whole post and it becomes a free for all.

likes. keron cummings is a gem. nice find coach. aubrey david fought but didn't have the support in the middle. i have to admit abu bakar earned his spot over marshall even though he scored a nice goal. we could have beaten this team had we not parked the bus. we should have pressed for the fourth goal instead of closing shop and giving the mexicans the opportunity to rally. but i am glad we didn't win because we don't need no false sense of security, now we can go work on not conceding so much goals and if we can fix this problem then i think the cup will be ours this time around.

Yeah, I am not convinced SH made that call to take the pedal off the gas. The situation may just have developed on the field and players didn't address it strenuosly. Ah real wah hear the post-match comments. Allyuh done know the MEX media will be skewering Piojo Herrera AND peppering SH with questions.

Scoring 4 goals against Mexico is a hell of a feat, and we scored 4 very good goals as well.

:wavetowel: :wavetowel: Like Che say ... that 2nd one he rest should have been the match winner ... but the Marshall header under the conditions and time it was scored was  :cursing: golden.

That was a strike worthy of CG.

They interviewed KJ after the game on TV. Though he was pleased with the result, he was disappointed in the way the lead slipped through our fingers in the final minutes.

This has been hashed out before ... one is better at some things; the other has his strengths. It's not easy to transition into the starting role after playing second fiddle for so long.

We don't have Jan. Lehwe embrace Marvin. He did sufficiently well.

Concacaf needs to do something about those Fans, Trinidad players were dealing with a lot. Lights flashing in eyes bottle throwing on field. No way this should be allowed to continue. Worst yet even the Trinidad supporters at the game was getting soaked with bottles and cups unacceptable Concacaf.
