We need to learn from tonight. The chemistry was off, spacing between midfield and offense was huge. Feel like they missed KJ
....and someone to command d CAM and wings.....winchester looked useless for the most part....and why no Cato

congrats haiti on a well deserved win. worst t&t performance in a long time. even the coach and his staff seemed deflated the entire game.

these players have proven more than capable facing much stronger opponents. i have to wonder how much the serial-screw-ups/sabotage by the ttfa and the cummings incident played into this...

This hurts, I really wanted these guys to play against the likes of Brazil, Argentina etc. I agree too it seems like they missed kenwyne. Cummings would've handled that attacking midfield role, guerra too. Cato would've injected life into the team if he came on.

Before the demolition crew takes over ...

Very sad loss for a team that seemed to me to be trying very hard and was excellent at playing ball under pressure against a very physical Haiti. I thought our ball possession and one touch and first touch under pressure was better than ever before actually. Yes we did miss KJ and Plaza up front for those crosses, free kicks and several crosses into the box, and we did miss Ball-pest and Molino and Guerra (latter also recovering from injury), Everybody played well in my opinion. Jan was sensational except for one unlucky deflection-shift-the-wrong-way-goal. I see no need to bash Cyrus. We proved that even without Bateau, Carlysle Mitchell has re-established himself as a solid centerback, and showed he can handle stuff at this level. Remember he was our top central defender before he was sent off to exile in Korea and before Bateau came knocking on the door and Radanfah upped his game.

We will miss playing in the Copa. I grieve but it was not meant to be, and there is still football to play for. This team is showing very good midfield and defense depth (no Justin Hoyte, no Bateau), with need to get more depth in the potent strikers and replacements for Ball pest. Good news is that we will be seeing Molino by march 2016.

Good coaching tactics by BraveHart in my opinion. The loss makes it look like we were supposed to lose or inferior but I don't see it that way. Haiti is trouble always. Their keeper was scrappy but had wicked reflexes for every shot, deflection and potential own goal coming his way.
A for effort my Warriors. I know it hurts. No sweat, chin up and attack with full force against Vincy in the next 2 World Cup qualifiers.

Lacked imagination and enterprise in the middle,  hyland does OK as a stop gap 10 but isn't in the same league as keron or molino for movement therefore does not draw defenders to him as effectively so no space was being created for others........

i say if we can't best teams like this then we have no right in the copa. For that matter I'm kind of happy that we lost because people was already getting besides themselves like we won the hold cup, and simply because we had some good results, like when hart told the lads that they have not achieved anything yet, truer words.

On another not. The #12 and 15 should never play for us ever again with that amateur display of poor defending, one for allowing the cross to leave the boy boots and the other for allowing the striker to touch that ball.

I had to log out and cool myself down. I just could not see us not playing in the Copa.
This is just how I felt after our women did not reach the WC. And they mirror each other too. Both teams had three chances to make it. Both teams missed out on penalties . And both teams lost it late on weak goals in their third and final chace.  :'( >:( :(  :-\  I need a stiff drink. I going with ah LLB instead of my usual malta.

Ah hear yuh. This football is real presshah to watch, and damn cruel for the players, but it is still a privilege to see T&T on TV participating
If I had to choose between seeing T&T playing with a loss vs not playing, I would still want to see us play in qualifiers like this.

deeks these guys truly behave like they don't know the game sometimes. Any fool would tell you that when you are stretched you never allow a cross to enter your box, let alone have an attacking player touch a ball in you final third. The two defenders allow this one player a shot with the #12 defending on the wrong side of the attacker, while the #15 player gave the attacker ample time to line up the cross especially in the dying stages of the game, shame on them. Give these guys a few weeks off and they gone mad forgetting everything they learned.

Except for the couple of counter attacks which almost resulted in us scoring about 3 goal, our players lack vision. Without the mid field control, we were done four. We missed Cummings and Cato(he may be nursing some kind of injury, I don't know). Our mids were notenterprising enough. The Haitians were always probing. Making short passes. Moving into spaces. As you said, we forgot everything after the GC. I am depressed. I wanted us to play in the Copa badly. Like we not ready for prime time. Jeez!!!

I am glad to see that there are not too many overly negative post about our guys. Because if we as fans are hurting so much think about how much this is hurting those guys right now. I am trying to find the positives in a loss like that, The best that  I could come up with is this. After a lost like that those guys will never want to have that kind of feeling again and it will inspire them to do even better next time. They should now be even more hungry to reach the WC.

Same was said after the loss to Panama in the GC...part of it for us is mental, when it comes to crunch time, our statistics aren't very encouraging...

 :beermug: I thought we played very well. It was hard for Coach Hart to prepare tactically against the Haitians. With a new coach, we knew nothing about how they would play and Hart didn't want them running at us, so we flood the midfield and went at them. We were unlucky, Haiti absorb the pressure and they were more physically prepared and had a game plan. It's easy to look at our team and predict what would be the situation upfront - we had many chances but most importantly while been solid at the back the team was able to create chances. I thought we rush de brush tonite. no finesse.. sometimes just a little patience and less panic when frustrated is important in games like these.

I thought MOM was that Haitian keeper, it was going to take something special to beat him tonite.

This teams deserves to be criticized. We have seen what they are capable of both team wise and individually. This performance was less than mediocre and no one including fans should accept that. The team showed a lack of focus, they looked unfit, defensively we were out of sorts poor 1v1 and even worse 1v2. In this game there seemed to be a lack of communication along with a general lack of understanding of what to do when we had the ball.
