Moore has potential.. he played well, never seen him play before tbh

His first was the pick of the goals for me. Commentator noted how hard he hit the brakes on the cutback.
Montserrat back line was criminal not following our runs for those passes in behind. They were playing quite a high line. But, if they refuse to adjust daiz dey bizness.
Anybody have a scouting report for FG?

I think eve should call up Cummings tbh, he will be a great addition to this squad..

Eves coaching was better than both DL and Fenwick..

Will wait to see how they perform against better opposition but its a decent start for Eve and the team compared to what we have been seeing ...
maybe if you took the time to visit the forum and read a bit instead inciting conspiracies theories then you wouldn’t be invoking cummings, cause you would have known that cummings is under a doctor’s care ATM and is waiting for further testing to be cleared to play again. In addition he has already contacted angus and has agreed that as soon as he is cleared he will be part of the team, ok. so no more cummings being pushed aside marching band, he’s in the team if or when he’s cleared.

agree with the tempered outlook. i like how frederup, telfer, aubrey & moore played. without molino to put the team on a solid footing in the 1st half i think they would have struggled. the minutes under the belt  made for a generally more fluid 2nd half showing. wasn't a complex enough game to see change in tactics or anything, so can't praise or blame eve yet. i think he try a few guys who --moore worked well, but i didn't like peters, russel jr or marcus joseph. i still wanting to see jesse williams encouraged, as better than others chosen. good outing, but i hope the favorites talk isn't true and we don't continue to see men who visably don't have the gc levels

Why so argumentative in tone brother?  :D

A simple Cummings waiting for results would suffice..

Been busy, after the whole Fenwick thing I had to take a break from the bullshit, plus I'm in post for my movie I shot in Morocco  🇲🇦

Hope Cummings is cleared and thats good news he will be a part of the plans going forward..

Definitely the best goal for me tbh he had great control of the ball in the box

High risk football and they didn't cover, especially with forwards with good pace, you're gambling not making adjustments definitely

Don't know anything about FG... Tallman might know

Molino broke the ice.. however I felt like we are missing Poon in that mid tbh

Too early to judge Eve on tactics and coaching bc he hasn't faced a stern test yet.. club to national is a different ball game but his subs were much better than Fenwick and DL..

Players missing for me was Poon and hopefully Cummings..

Eve has his favorites I've heard which to me is not good for national football but we will see.. FG he gets another chance to show what he can do.. Moore is a nice surprise and I think Cummings spoke about another player who DL left off who's talented enough to make the sr team..

I've never really seen Joseph impress me tbh, he's a decent player, and I agree with you, GC level players need to be on the team, curry favor is the worse thing about our football and selection

On a side note, the FSC commentator was quite knowledgeable of our players at US clubs and about Concacaf in general. I eh know he name but he was good.

Watching this game made me a bit angry more than anything because this Montserrat team is much better than Bahamas. So the obvious conclusion to be derived is that something was very much off in that camp. Montserrat of course is not the greatest challenge but they have held their own recently. El Salvador, who could potentially be in our group if we move to the next stage drew with them in WCQ as recent as March this year.

Guyana has a handful of Brits. But as a team, they are one of the worst. Talk about no discipline, composure, and no ball sense. They throw away this game. Down by 2 on the scoreboard. Down by 1 on the field.

Coach Angus Eve credits professionalism after Trinidad and Tobago defeat Montserrat 6-1
T&T Newsday


INTERIM head coach of the national men’s senior football team Angus Eve commended his team’s professionalism following their 6-1 victory over Montserrat in the first round of the Gold Cup qualifiers in Ft Lauderdale, Florida, USA, on Friday night.

The match, delayed by 45 minutes because of poor weather, was played at the DRV PNK Stadium.

Midfielder Kevin Molino gave T&T the lead with a penalty in the 21st minute.

T&T scored two more goals in the first half as Marcus Joseph got on the scoresheet in the 37th minute before Ryan Telfer found the back of the net in stoppage time in the first half.

Montserrat pulled a goal back ten minutes after the resumption when captain Lyle Taylor converted a header.

A minute later Judah Garcia made it a three-goal cushion again for T&T. Substitute Reon Moore scored the last two goals for T&T to round off the scoring with the final item coming in the 82nd minute.

“I thought today was a game of professionalism,” Eve said in a post-match media conference.

Eve said his players followed the strategy. “We studied the games of the opposition and we asked the guys to do particular stuff in the game and I thought, for the most part, we kept to the game plan. This is just three days of work with some of the guys and a week and a half with some of the other guys so I am very proud of the boys today. This is just one step in where we want to be – the first step. It is a good start.”

T&T will now play French Guiana in the second round of the qualifiers at 4.30 pm, on Tuesday. On Saturday, French Guiana were scheduled to play Cuba in the first round. However, a statement on the Concacaf website said, “Concacaf has been in regular communication with the Cuban Football Association regarding their travel to the 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup preliminary round (qualifiers).

“Unfortunately, due to covid-19 related travel and visa challenges, and the required covid-19 testing regime, their match tonight against French Guiana will not take place.”

Discussing the importance of each match, Eve said, “We just treat every game as a final because every game we would play it will mean something because if we lose we go home and so losing is not the objective here.”

Eve said T&T belongs in the Gold Cup. “We want to be where we think we should be in the Gold Cup proper and marching against the likes of the USAs and the Mexicos and the Costa Ricas and all of these teams, so we definitely want to win the next game so that we could be in the Gold Cup proper.”

If T&T win on Tuesday they will qualify for the Gold Cup which kicks off on July 10.

Molino, asked by a reporter if his opening goal from the penalty spot established the right attitude for T&T, said, “Yes, but I think together we started off well. That set the tone - the first goal – and the floodgates opened and we continued going. We should have scored more, but so be it. We look forward to the next one now.”

Molino said the victory serves as motivation heading into Tuesday’s match.

“We would take it. It is confidence going into the next game. We not going to go into the next game lightly because we scored six. We are going in with the same mentality and even more hungry to get more goals.

both Lawrence and then Fenwick had failed to institute any kinda notable system, yuh could actually see what Eve team was trying to do, do they need ah better testing ground?......f**k yes, but did they display competence, opposition notwithstanding f**k yes.......(ah not cussing at yuh)

Lefty, again we can beat up on TF all we want. He was at a disadvantage in terms of time to prepare and the covid restrictions. DL did fail in the Hex. But some of the games were very close. The Mex.  and CR games were close. Plus they beat the US in Couva. You tell me, a team who was last in the group and had nothing to play for, and play the game of their life, causing a mini tsunami in the football world by knocking the US out of WC. That eh count as nothing? !!! Please, I beg to differ. I know most here don't like DL because he was SH successor by orders of DJW. Most of allyuh wanted him to fail. And he did. But look, he got an appointment with Coventry. So if that is not ambition, what is ? I want Angus to succeed real BAADD! But this is only one game. And we played Monserrat guys. Absolutely no disrespect to them.

can I shake your hand sir?? pop pop goes my horn. these are the things that grinds my nuts with these local trini football fans, they won a single game and all of a sudden they’re seeing the promise land. I was on Facebook yesterday and they’re ready for mexico and the U.S. after one game against monserrat, it’s crazy how their level of delusional is off the charts.

to begin with monserrat played a very high line and left a lot of gaps in their defense for any good running team to exploit, and i wouldn’t go tooting my horn just yet, when angus beats french guyana and one of the Central American minnows in like manner, then I will alight from my high chair and give props, but until then I remain unconvinced. don’t get me wrong I want for him to succeed more than anything else, but he has to prove me wrong, only then will I grab my fork and prepare to eat some humble pie, but until then, I’m a serious skeptic.

Long way to go
By Fazeer Mohammed (T&T Express)


History tells you to be wary of getting carried away with positive results when it comes to Trinidad and Tobago football.

But 6-1 is 6-1. And yes, there is reason to reference Friday night’s Gold Cup qualifying victory as being against 180th-ranked Montserrat. Then again, the goalless draw which eliminated the national team from the Qatar 2022 World Cup campaign at the preliminary group stage was against 201st-ranked Bahamas.

Indeed it was based on that elimination, notwithstanding the change of head coach, that there would have been more than a little anxiety in Fort Lauderdale about the prospect of another humiliating experience against a squad based almost entirely in the United Kingdom, albeit at the level of the lower leagues.

So the result under new head coach Angus Eve can almost be described as a pleasant surprise. Still, you would hope that the former national striker, someone who has experienced the perils, pitfalls and very occasional peaks associated with the national game for more than 30 years, would be reminding his players that the journey to respectability in the eyes of a weary public will be a long and difficult one, even as he offers more encouraging words ahead of tomorrow’s final qualifier against French Guiana, also in Fort Lauderdale.

If his team were to overcome that hurdle, then Trinidad and Tobago will be in the Gold Cup proper with the immediate opportunity to show this country’s mettle against the best in the region. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves though because we have very recent painful experience of how that can end up.

Whether Terry Fenwick was a yoke around the players’ necks or not, they were also performing poorly under the guidance of one of their own, Dennis Lawrence, for years. So let’s see if all this suggestion of footballers finally free to express themselves and now motivated to give of their best for their country is genuine, or just the usual fly-by-night propaganda which accompanies the occasional good result.

In concluding his report on the game for his Wired868 website, Lasana Liburd stated: “The Warriors are back.” No room for ambiguity there, and in fairness, he has witnessed enough of the trials and tribulations of the senior men’s national team for his assessment to carry quite a bit of credence.

But I will reserve judgement for two reasons. Firstly, I don’t know if we saw enough in 90 minutes of football to point to a complete transformation from the previously tedious, error-strewn performances. And secondly, the weight of history is so overwhelming that one excellent result will not significantly ease that burden.

I really wanted them to lose because if angus were to be successful then he would get the job permanently and start ignoring players that should be in the team with the same stubbornness of gally, st claire, latapy and lawrence. I have watched angus over the years where he always levied heavy criticism on past coaches especially foreign coaches and in a very undermining way. I’m very surprised that he played frenderup and telfer being two foreigners BTW, wasn’t hoping to see them, but I doubt if players like poon, Gary griffith, danial phillip  and Greg ranjitsingh would ever get another call up anytime soon.

Again, tomorrow's game against FG is not a given. DO NOT underestimate this team. Win this game and we are in GC. If we can't beat this team, then what is our football worth?

The worth of our football does not hinge on that game. Just look at where we are right now. Look at what has transpired over the last five years.

yeh, fazeer should stick to sports because other than that he’s very poor at political and main stream journalism, and I find him to be extremely colloquial and cynical in his assessment. he’s a very one sided bloke IMO.
