With the talent we have, don't be surprised if we beat some top 10 squads, providing we have our full team and have the right prep.

Hart will take this team to the promised land with the right prep. I have no doubts in my mind about that.

Our next step is to get the money to fund this team and start playing teams like Brazil and France. We have the talent to do it, we have a coach who is a football whiz but needs the support.

This team is slowly building confidence to play big sides. They can play with them and compete and win. If we were prepped and had our full team, playing Argentina a second time around would be a different scenario.

Fear God ... Not the opponent you play...

Congrats to the team and especially the coach who has identified some of the problem. This is a work in progress. we need games and some foreign input plus games in T&T to rekindle the warrior spirit among the home fans

Let's take one step at a time Please!!. If you have been following the socawarriors under Mr Hart you see that their is a growing confidence.  But this is not the time to be talking about beating top 10 teams.  Our focus should be WCQ.  When that happens so be it.  But if it happens at the expense of qualifying then there is no use.

Not everyone has the foresight or vision to see ahead... I was the first man over more than a decade ago to call for Hart as coach, before anyone else on here, so yes I follow Hart and his progress...

I also know Hart wants our team to be in the top 20 in the world.. His goals are big, not small, beating those teams are always on the back of his mind and taking us to the big dance...

Be a visionary ... Think big...

We already jumping way ahead of ourselves. Two draws against Mexico have man feeling so happy to make these type of posts. We did not dominate Mexico, we did not beat them. We have not even put together some months of executing consistent top quality football that will lead us into this type of assessment that is being made by the original poster.

Allyuh go ahead and jump and wave and don't focus on the problem we have with our defense.

You need to stop behaving like a child in a candy shop after we draw a game. Everyone is telling you there is NOTHING that has happened to convince anyone we will start beating top 10 ten teams anytime soon but you here talking about positive thinking. Try not to embarrass yourself  :rotfl:

As you can see I have only made a few post on this site. But don't be fooled, I have be keeping abreast with T&T soccer for many years, and their is nothing wrong with being critical about where we are and how we can improve as a soccer nation. Being critical is not being negative.  It is what's required to achieve goals.  I bet if you ask Heart what's the goal for the soccer team right now, he would not tell you that it is to be top 20, but to qualify for the World Cup.

We have an amazing team and I'm proud of the boys. They all did worked hard.

One weakness I saw in the team though is their ability to maintain the lead. I think again it comes down to fitness and composure in the final minutes. We must work on that.

Another thing I notice is a lot of our opponent's opportunities are coming from the right. I love Daniel Cyrus, he's a true warrior with great attitude, but I feel like he needs to step up on that right side. Too many times offensive players pass him and get crosses in our box. But again, great player, just needs to work on fitness and composure.

Totally agree with sando prince...n this BS about not beleiving in your team or being more positive is all cliche n pure f******

yes we are improving as a team. Good individual performances by some younger players coming through.
But 2 draws n one of them vs a weak mexico team and we talking top 10 teams in the future??????
come on...let's not be naiive

we have a longgggggggggggggggggggggggggg way to go before reaching "the promised land"

btw...WTF is the promised land?!???  that is such a soundbyte and makes no damn sense.
I support the warriors but i'm realistic.

So to cry down ppl for being "negative" is madness.
Seems as if those ppl saying that have tunnel vision and think prayers alone gonna make us improve as a team.

come on. wake up. that soundbyte and positive talk does not help the team
Im not saying to be negative, but be realitic.

let's beat usa and mexico regularly n jamaica as a matter of fact b3fore we even talk top 50!

Honestly speaking, I think everyone is realistic about our play. We have played the top concacf team twice and came out with a draw. And some of us feeling real confident, so much so, that they think the MNT could beat Germany?  Why not? That is how fans think. There is this confidence in them, that they will spend their money to go to the end of the earth to see their team play and win or lose. Just look how the Brits fans go all over the place and they win nothing. Now if players get carried away, then I can see the concern for swell headedness. But even with that, the players themselves must have a certain amount of confidence that they can beat any team. Or else they should stay home. I does tell Contro. straight, he not making sense when I disagree. But he is one of the forumites who have this sense of positive thinking, down with the negative thinking. Maybe he is from the Phil Jackson camp. A zen master and does probably do some serious yoga. As long as Hart has the players grounded and ready for games, that is what matters most.

Mr Contro

This post is not cool.  No one is saying that you cannot have hopes an aspirations for our national team to do well.  But there was nothing in those games vs Mexico to suggest that we can compete vs any top 10.  Lets not get ahead of ourselves.

Jamaica played competent and combative games vs three tough South American teams in South America, beat USA in USA, and created history by qualifying for the Gold Cup Final, yet still lost to Nicaragua at HOME.

All we did was draw vs Mexico twice, a team that we had an excellent record against at home for the last 15 years. 

Hart is doing good work, we are removing the shackles of inferiority vs these teams, but the world cup qualifiers should be our focus, NOT a pie in the sky victory vs "top 10 side"

NB: We beat a side ranked #4 in the world already and it got us nowhere.

Contro is right in my mind it is possible for Hart to beat a top 10 ranked team...he is well organized...he has players with basic skills and very good athletic ability.

Hart studies the game and studies his opponents. He needs help!

He needs help in getting quicker and more decisive ball movement...players must to be more fit..

He has succeeded in organization with the ball...now we have to become more tactical without the ball..we have to improve in defensive midfield, and set plays..

luck was on our side for two of our goals...we may not be so lucky next time.

And I am saying it again...Jam Michael Williams is not fit!

Azzuri and Andre, this post deserves to be here as much as every other post. It may be ridiculous to some, but it is a fan's(fanatic) opinion. Toot your horm, brag and boast, be a waggonista. When your team get creamed, drink a petit quart and take "fatigue in your arse". this is supposed to be a democratic website. At this moment, I dont' think our MNT are capable. But if Hart manages to guide this team to Moscow, I honestly believe we can beat, if not top ten, but top 20. But at this moment I don't see that. I think Hart and these players know their limitations. I just wish we could get to play this top 10, top 20 teams in the FiFa friendly dates. Even if it is their B team. Now I think this Tuesday is a FiFa date(correct) me. It would have been nice to play one of these team. If not, it woud have been nice to get the local players a game against anyone of the island teams. Vincy, Grenada, Aruba. It would give Hart a little more time with the local who are on the squad.
