Just as I thought. I think FIFA hasn't responded in time. Bostock was probably waiting on the response so he could start packing his bags. But he knows that they are cutting it kind of late, so he probably decided to just pull out and wait for next time.

Any update on Bostock? Supposed to be resolved today.

That is the million dollar question. It's 4pm est. Hence, we should've learned by now. I'm sensing another roadblock or something. I hope I'm wrong.

According to his tweet, John Bostock will be unavailable for the World Cup Qualifiers against Guatemala and the United States.

This is utter nonsense. Men from other countries getting international clearance in days. Its been 6 months!!!! That's incredibly long, even if they were intentionally dragging their feet, this is highly unusual. Was an explanation given? A time-frame. One player doesn't change anything really on the team but I don't like the bad vibes this can possibly bring.

Let's not be too alarmed. This is timing. Bostock does not want to keep waiting on clearance. Put yourself in his shoes.. No word from Fifa and and it's 3 days before the game. Might as well yuh give the team the bad news from now, instead of waiting until Tuesday or Wednesday.

The question is why is he still waiting. Anyway he will play when he plays. We have the team to win already. He will just improve an already good situation and give us options. Really wish the ttfa was more open on this from a fans perspective...

A terrorist. ::)
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.

Theft of his passport. Even if it was stolen getting a new passport shouldn't take more than a day for a player to get called up. TTFA should of made an announcement before Bostock did, but we know how secretive our FA can be at times. Well waiting patiently to see what happens next time around.

By the way big fan of John, hope he does get clear by Fifa and represent us soon.

Boucaud: We have to manage the game properly.
TTFA Media.


National Men’s Team midfielder Andre Boucaud believes that the “Warriors” will need to settle early in Friday’s World Cup Qualifying match and will have to avoid letting the magnitude of the encounter get the better of them if they are to achieve the desired result to take them to the Concacaf hexagonal final round.

The English-born Dagenham and Redbridge player was speaking on Monday morning after completing the team’s opening session of a live-in training camp at the Hasely Crawford Stadium training pitch. He and several of the overseas-based players were involved including US-based quartet Mekeil Williams (Colorado Rapids), Aubrey David (Dallas FC), Trevin Caesar (Orange County) and Kevan George (Jacksonville Armada). Also in were Mexican-based duo Jomal Williams and Shahdon Winchester and Estonian-based defender Radanfah Abu Bakr, South Korean-based defender Carlyle Mitchell and new call, goalkeeper Greg Ranjitsingh who trained alongside the local duo of Adrian Foncette and Marvin Phillip. Central FC’s Kenwyne Jones, Daneil Cyrus and Hughtun Hector of W Connection were also present at training.

The rest of the squad is expected in by Monday evening.

“It’s a massive game and everybody knows the importance of the game. I believe if we do what we were doing in the other qualifying games prior to the last three friendlies, then I think we will get the result that we need,” Boucaud told TTFA Media.

“I’ve been playing a lot of games in England on Saturdays and Tuesdays and my team is doing pretty good as we’re top of the League at the moment and I’m feeling pretty fit and ready at the moment,” he added.

Looking ahead to the affair, Boucaud says while the past two wins over Guatemala are just history now, he doesn’t think T&T needs to change it’s game approach.

“I think the key would be sticking together as usual and not playing the occasion… we need to play the game as is. We all know it’s a big game but I think if we focus on our game and how we are accustomed doing things, sticking together and pull off the result the we can, then I think we’ll be fine on Friday,” Boucaud added.

Midfielder George, who missed T&T’s last five matches is anticipating a quick start from the Guatemalans. George says physically he’s in top shape at the moment

“It’s the best feeling in the world to play regularly for your team, and starting and playing 90 minutes. I feel like I’m in the shape of my professional life so far and I’m just happy to be back in the national squad.” George said.

“Attitude will be the key for us in this game. We need to try and finish them off quickly and give the people something to cheer and not have to leave it until the last game in the round. I think Guatemala will be the same as they were at home minus the fans. They will be nasty, they are going to come in the first 15-20 minutes and be very physical but we will be prepared for any matchup. We have to make this stadium our own so that teams will be afraid to come here and play thinking they can get a result, George added.

Fans can purchase tickets at Lotto locations nationwide priced at $300 (covered) and $150 (uncovered).

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

With the british passport he wouldnt have required a visa to enter the states, so in essence he wouldnt even be able to remain with the squad after the match in TT anyways.

His travel date was probably Sunday and unless he coming direct from London he would have to in-transit from the states. Had to make that call in my opinion.

I used to know a girl who worked with the travel agency used by the federation. When most of the foreign based pros were based in the UK it was easier to get them here. Now where we have players in Russia and Korea is all kinda 20+ hours of travel to reach trinidad. When Yorke was playing in australia in 2005 he had to come back first class, that ticket was 70,000 TTD each time.

Logistics can be headaches at times coordinating a full squad.

This looks about right. Switch the wingers and its more a 4231 with Boucaud and Hyland in the defensive mid positions. Very comfortable with that, go poison them with speed on the wings. Kenwyne holding up the ball and Molino, Levi and Jovein running at them plus the option of Kenwyne on crosses we have options. We good.

Credit to the TTFA regarding the comprehensive nature of the pre-match security protocol and the announcement itself. It is now left to be seen whether the execution of the measures matches the promise of the announcement. Looking forward to success.
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.
