Good chance to see 4 TT internationals in one game.

Powder started his 4th game in a row since returning to NYRBII at LWB. Dennis Lawrence should be looking at  him for an invite into camp. Yes he is only 18 years old but certainly can handle playing at the this level and has been playing at this level since 17 years old. Many of the players playing in the Pro League trying to get contracts in USL but not successful at trials.

Can't understand why he not considered?

Hope the coaching staff and scouts will be watching on Saturday at 7:00pm when NYRBII plays Charleston Battery. Noah Powder will face Neveal Hackshaw and Ataulla Guerra. Game streaming live on USL website.

Dinner Mints

At 18 that's appropriate size, I hope you don't want him to be fat, overweight and unfit like so many of the Pro League players currently in the national setup that are exhausted in the 70th minute.  Let me help you by showing you the height and weight stats of arguably the 10 best LWB in the world:

                              Age   Height   Weight
Luke Shaw               22   6'1"           165
Patrice Evra               36   5'8"           159
Nancho Monreal               31   5'10"           159
Raphael Guerreiro       23   5'7"           148
Aleksandar Kolarov       31   6'2"           183
Cesar Azpilicueta       27   5'10           154
Marcelo Viera               29   5'9"           165
Danny Rose               27   5'9"           168
Jordi Alba                       28   5'7"           150
David Alaba               25   5'11"      165

Average Height     5.67
Average Weight    162
Average pounds/inch 2.376

Next time use some data to back up your statements. I am sure by 22 Powder will add 10 pounds of muscle.

Though they play very different positions with different physical demands, Neymar is 5"9" and 150 pounds.

Alex Sandro and Marcelo are better than all of them. Arguably.

Nothing against Taryk Sampson nor Shane Sandy but if you looking for a defender from last U20 why Powder would not be top of the list. He playing at much higher level and the full 90.

Powder have USA and Haitian passport, his days could be numbered with us.

Could he have commanded a starting position in Haiti's U-20 squad?

Definetely at LWB, he was approached by them and pushed by NYRB team mate Derrick Etienne.

Brian and Staff opted to play him as a left or right winger instead of his natural LWB position even though Brian had no left footed defender for the position

I was about to question the comment, but then I remembered that Keston Julien was not available for Costa Rica.

Looked at the video of these matches again recently, and what you raise explains a question I was left with ... because I expected more from Powder.

That Haiti wanted him, I can't question. But, from what I saw in Curacao, I have reservations to say he could have full-fledged started (based on Haiti's team).

We are either at the end of a cycle or soon at the start of another. Hold tight. All indications are that the coaching staff recognizes it's time to ease youth in.

That stated, the player is not a finished article ... so it's not like he is ready, ready right now. Or will be hurt career-wise. Hold strain.

He have time but we dont with the quality of defense we putting out against Jamaica. I watched Powder on line yesterday vs. Justin Hoyte who played for us a year ago under Hart. Hoyte a former Arsenal academy player and Powder dominated that side of the pitch though Hoyte is probably now 15 years older than Powder. NYRBII, Powder won 4-0 vs. FC Cinncinati with Powder earning the penalty for the opener. Watch on USL website and tell me because his quality is much better than them jokers they select for the Jamaica game. Its always better to get young players with other options to commit early to avoid chasing and begging like we doing now foe some. Its foolish by TTFA to ease in players of lesser ability and only one country option if they really thinking about starting a new cycle. Looks more like they starting a Connection Cycle with that defense...expect Jamaica to score goals

By the way, why the mention of Shane Sandy? Shane is not a direct competitor for Powder's position. Neither is Taryk Sampson.

I was referencing young defenders, that should be called up. Sandy and Sampson are in the JA match. Props to both especially Tobago Sandy

Tobago, I'm with you dude. Powder is a no-brainer. Should definitely be capped at senior level. He is sound, level-headed and seems committed to T&T. . .But that may change and no one could blame him if he chooses whichever country to play for.

Blood him now.

Exactly, he will only get better and attract attention from other countries he is eligible to play for, I fear the same will happen with the goal keeper Ranjatsingh who plays for Louisville FC.

I think  our  coaches  look down on the USL  ..its not a high enough level of football but i could be wrong .. But from watching a few usl games it is more competitive than the pro league .

If that's the case then the coaches should be fired. Pro League players begging to get a USL trial so why select all the Pro League players? Powder scores after being fouled by Joe Cole, the same Joe Cole that was at West Ham, Chelsea and Liverpool with God knows how many caps for England. If the coaches don't know that Drogba playing in the USL then the coaches, scouts and administrators useless

Met the mother and father in Curacao during CFU-U20 Finals, the mother is Haitian and was joking that he should be playing for Haiti instead of TnT especially since Haiti won CFU at U20 and U17. This youth have 3 options, hoping he stays with us.
