Did not see the game. As much as we would have liked 3 points, one eh bad. This team is a work in progress. The last WC game vs the US, we played a real good games when Latas was the coach, and Ricardo Clark poison we with a scorcher. Have patience.

I had to delete last post.. What I meant to post is.. I have Mexicans coming up to me randomly to shake my hand.. I have American friends who fear my national team that are now breathing a sigh of relief.. Jurgen is relieved.. On the bright side both teams played well. Win against SVG for US gave them confidence, if they had TNT first after the dismal showing in GC we probably would have won for sure lol.This TNT side has improved ALOT, but still in beta IMO, figuring out who takes corners and free kicks are still up in the air somewhat - the back and near post coverage against set pieces could use some work and last a bit of patience infront of goal.. I felt like tnt rushed the chances they had - Howard was not tested at all - this is a problem especially at home.

The team can correct these issues - structure the gameplan a bit better so they physical of the team isn't depleted after 75 minutes into the game. Overall happy with one point, we had good moments but still a bit ball watching in the middle and not winning those second balls.

Oh - .. Americans are rooting for TNT vs Mexico and the Mexicans are rooting for tnt vs US. .. It's funny...  and ridiculous.

Didn't see the game ...highlights look very encouraging..this team can only get better ..in the whole scheme of things this draw is a victory.

Klinsmann is still in trouble ..he doesn't have the answer to Mexico..we can take points from Mexico...we have taken points from the US..we can beat them on the road where this team performs even better.

I know de Coachman not taking anybody lightly..we may drop a couple points here and there against opponents that we can beat but so would everybody else.

We have a strong chance to get to Russia.

We have to be patient and know this is the smartest Trini Coach I have seen to date..the man sleeps,breathe, dreams, football 24/7...I feel that very soon we will see an influx of foreign born coming out of the woodwork to try to get on this team..

The best thing Tim ever did is to hire Stephen Hart at the right time when this coach is peaking....I still say he needs a little help on pressure/cover/balance thing..the philosphy without the ball needs work..

All in all we can't fly in God's face ...Great Result!!

Hart played dead to catch corbeaux alive... that was his strategy.. the counter... they defended well, there is need for improvement but it will come...

j.jones played well, cato played well, jones didn't finish, but i liked williams in the back and hoyte is as composed as ever... boucard did a good job holding up the mid and keeping it simple.. they kept possession more in this game and i believe a draw for US was actually lucky..

had TT converted their chances in the first half, the flood gates would have opened.. this is an average US team, right now its TT and Mex ahead of the pack in terms of qualification and yes im calling that now...

costa rica and the US will battle for that 3rd and 4th spot.. with the return of Molino, Guerra and Hector, we can beat any team in Concacaf

this is what i have been trying to tell the naysayers for years, its finally coming to pass, the talent is there and better than almost all teams in the region, mexico is the only team equal or better in terms of talent in the region..

we are going to copa... and will surprise south america.. mark my words

Nuttin wrong with that would love to see Nick Deleon be part of this team as it adds depth.
I think we need one or two central defenders as AbuBakr is naturally a 6 and not 4 or 5.

One of the things that has made this team better is that Jackula isn't involved. Before every tournament there would be the stress of having to go to him to get approval  cap in hand, for one thing or another and now that that demon has been exorcised things will be better,

Saw the game, my observations were:

T&T played an organized, disciplined and mature game.

They lacked cutting edge in the final 3rd.

They looked very tired by the 70th minute.

The USA are a better team than they showed today and didn't play well.

A point against a superior team (see rankings) is a good result.

The substitutions were good ones but maybe a little late.

This is probably one of the best coached T&T teams I've seen in years.

Yeah.  You pretty much summed up my thoughts on the game too..... :beermug:

would've been better to beat them at home but 4 points out of 2 games is good considering the opportunity. That is how much points I would've expected T&T to collect+

 USA had the better of the game , more chances.

 Will be a small miracle to go to the states and come back with a point
wah game u watch?? And Ppl hard to please yes. 4 pts from d two games is very good. Team was good today, can play better yet buy encouraging signs... On to the next game, let's win that and get closer to the hex

Reality check son.
This is not the HEX when the real football start.

Whilst this team showing a lot more promise than recent vintage.

This team need to improve to another level to qualify for the WC.

Costa Rica
Mexico
USA
Panama
Jamaica

Big teams to overcome, we have to win most of our home games.
The performance last night did not give me the confidence that we could do that.

See this too often to get carried away by it.

An why yuh ent fight with Sam instead?

One mistake I think Hart made yesterday was to start Cato. Cato is good but he doesn't really do well starting. Cummings or Glenn would have been the better started. Cato is great to sub on in the last 30 mins or so to bring some pressure on the opponents tired legs. I am surprised the coach didn't go with the same lineup we had against Mexico with Cummings and Glenn because that's where we play our best.

It is a process.....look at language some of you'll are using to describe the team now...disciplined, organized...all that is part of the process. What the coach has envisioned won't come overnight especially against teams that have been more consistent than us. We have had credible performances from the Gold Cup till now and from a fan perspective which is the viewpoint many of you'll are coming from is that wins are all that matters but from a coaching perspective it is different.  I'm only surmising here but given the lack quality warmup games he has to employ a tactical approach that sees the first principle of attack as being defense. Defending does not come naturally to us and it has to do more so with who we are as a people as we like to express ourselves. If we can defend well and through the moments of the game then it will allow us the freedom to better express ourselves in attack.

Question about Trevin Caesar:
I see he is listed as unattached having played "last season" for the Aztecs. When does that league's season run?

Caesar is listed as unattached because the USL season is over and the Austin Aztex will not be participating in 2016.
