Plaza is having a good run of form in the pro league, fair recall. I guess Molino will serve a sabbatical hopefully just for these two games. I know Hart had a press conference so i am not sure what the circumstances are with respect to him and the player.

I see Marshall is in for Williams too. Peters in for Hodge. I thought Hodge was decent versus Dom Rep.

Bostock named again, hopefully the FIFA issue is finally resolved.

Bostock should start and Levi may need to come off the bench... unless hart wants to attack and press high initially but I doubt it because Cummings is the man in the middle for that type of strategy ...

Bostock will have to be that creative mid for us since there is no Cummings, no Molino and no guerra..Cato I hope will factor into this and do well

We like to discuss players who didn't make the squad. Hector comes to mind.

Really positive to see Hackshaw steadily making his case.

We shouldn't overlook that this squad is built for TWO opponents, not one.

I just hope our mid field can dominate this game. If our midfield/forward don't show up. That is it.

Two defensive midfielders vs Costa Rica even though we are at home. If the front 4 can play compact they will create chances.

If by Hart's own admission that CR is the best team in the group then he needs to demonstrate pragmatism in his approach.

Stay compact and play the counter attack and convert what the game gives us.

ting is we not very good at that.......I would favor us pressing and encourage our front four to stay compact to each other and maintain a fast press.....we really haven't done that as much since Mexico and we look like having the beating of any team in concacaf if we can play like that consistently along with plugging the holes in defense.....players have gone back to simply stopping when they loose the ball, that needs to stop.
I pity the fool....

Could still high press in a 2 3 mid field with two defensive mids. Thats the formation Klopp uses. I agree this will probably be the plan. Who would be the two d mids two of Hyland, George and Boucaud? You will need someone to play Gundogan's role in the d mid. A man who doh bun.


If... if.. Bostock get cleared do you play him in the middle or on the wing? I wonder if he could play that position. Havent see enough of him play. Does he even start?

Can anyone give me some Info on Jelani Peters (Tallman). The team seems like a good one except for SH insistence on Cyrus. I wish he could prove me wrong but, to me, that player has neither the talent nor football intellect to prove me wrong.
 Honestly , I can see us out of the running very early in the hex. As a coach, i believe that SH has reached his apex which is just not good enough for this final 6.

Prove me wrong SH , both with the onfield tactics and your Team selections. I could call out a couple other players who, imo, are not up to this level but Cyrus is a hugeee standout, a grain of sand in the apple of the fans' eyes, but a seemingly automatic selection on your and our national team!!  SMH, please tell me what you see in this player. The opposition see a path to the goal and a dangerous long thrower. If only one could wipe out the other.

By now it's clear that Cyrus presents the best option there. With compromises we have to accept.

Cyrus brings attacking wing back play, long throws, crosses and recovery speed. Unfortunately he also brings bone head mistakes and big gaps at the gap.

Still waiting for him to have his Cyd Grey epiphany moment. When it all comes together. Maybe thats what Hart waiting for too.

Cyrus is exceptionally talented, in addition to the above, his one on one defending is actually very good as well. He is one of those naturally gifted talents that unfortunately fails to realize his full potential.

His problem is and always has been fitness, physical and mental fitness, because he not always match fit, he mentally switches off and gets caught out of position and has to rely on the recovery speed to cover himself. Kid mentality too, into the bling Trini lifestyle rather than pushing himself to move out to an overseas club on a permanent basis to further develop himself.

If the team had a proper sports psychologist he is a prime candidate for the couch.

National Senior Team coach Stephen Hart confirmed that Bostock, a former Crystal Palace and Tottenham Spurs midfielder, is now officially a Trinidad and Tobago player.

“I think it is a very positive thing for us,” said Hart. “We knew that there [would be] a ruling early in November and we were very hopeful because we had submitted everything.”

Bostock’s availability is likely to soften the blow of Kevin Molino’s absence, as the Orlando City midfielder was suspended by national coach Stephen Hart for the Costa Rica outing and the subsequent trip to Honduras on 15 November—after breaching team rules to party twice in a month.

A tall, elegant player with a fierce left foot shot from open play and set pieces, Bostock generally operates as a box to box midfielder. But Hart has suggested that he could also use him in Molino’s “Number 10” role alongside captain and forward Kenwyne Jones.

“I think it is a big addition because he can play two positions, in central midfield or further forward as the ‘t10’,” Hart told Wired868. “So that gives us flexibility. Plus, he is well known for his set plays. So we now have him and Joevin [Jones] for those.”I'm
