Eve: “We acquitted ourselves well!” Dour Soca Warriors eliminated 2-0 by Canada
Lasana Liburd



The Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Senior Team’s bid for an unprecedented place in the Copa America tournament stalled this afternoon at the Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas, as the Soca Warriors lost 2-0 to Canada in a playoff.

Coach Angus Eve clearly set out to restrict Canada over the first hour and then try to win the contest in the second half.

We acquitted ourselves well 
Acquitted meaning  to perform in a specified way.

So Angus thinks the team is  playing well  :frustrated::frustrated: ???

Anyone notice Angus shakes his head when he's speaking. Even he doesn't believe what he's saying. It's like he already has a script for when we lose

BECAUSE OF THIS PUPPET!!!!! we settle for so much mediocrity that being beaten and booted out of the 2nd greatest tournament we could have played in.... means nothing to him. ...... Oh well, we tried!  :pissedoff:

His formation, selection and strategy are deliberate and decided by his superiors...

People continue to ignore that TT football is controlled

You can't pin anything on him because it is hard to pin sabotage on someone with tactics but if those tactics are on purpose, like parking the bus for a draw in a must win game, explains itself...

More and more I listen to coach and see your msgs, it really seems like the only logical thing yes, He is a puppet and just doing what the hand inside him directing, cause no way a former player who knows anything about football could really stand to live with these decisions he's been making.

Please could someone explain to me why our football is controlled by outside sources,I am not as deep into our football apart from what I see,results and posts etc,but it would be nice if I could know why, and how we are controlled.If the control is true does the players know this,because if you go out to not win the players should know.I have to say,looking at how EVE is selecting the side, and his formation,his non selection of some players, I sort of feel the Socawarriors are being controlled to some degree,but I really don't want to believe it.

Our football is controlled by outside because previous local admin football admin(Jack, Camps, John_williams, Wallace f**ked up. Plain and simple. Also included are those locals who called for the FIFA NC and afterwards regretted that decision.

Controlled my ass. Delusions of grandeur again. Tata decisions, tata playing , and oh they controlling we. Ok, in the latest case, the tactics weren’t sound, but oh gorm, the players execution wasn’t above par either. We need better quality selections based on opponents and tactical requirements. Probably AE is not the person for the job, we do need a more experienced manager, but in building, players have to come better.
Man for Man, Canada players were technically better in execution. We were able to stymie their play most of the time, however it’s always easier to break up an attack than it is to create, which all in all we managed enough to count on hands. Football requires many more attempts than we can presently produce. Select players who can pass under and without pressure. Select players who show mental and physical strength in defense and attack.

Wth anybody have to gain by controlling we, every team in our region gives us trouble. FIFA fraid we ?  :rotfl: :rotfl:

Here is my post from before and will answer most of your questions, as to why?

It got worse with Jack undermining England and the US for the WC bids. Once again it goes back to FIFA's original make up, which was control of world football after independence of Caribbean and African nations with Sir Rous. That is until Joao Havelange decided to use the other nations like Africa and the Caribbean and played that masterstroke to gain power, which was eventually done by Sepp, under the tutelage of Havelange.

They never intended to have Caribbean and African nations dominate world football, they wanted stooges and hatchet men that are inherently corrupt to maintain their supremacy and get them the votes needed to secure the Presidency and ultimately control. Hence, the Caribbean is still the swing vote for the FIFA Presidency.

JW saw the opportunity to make that money and become the de facto "King of the Caribbean" via his cohorts in the other islands. A guaranteed revenue stream but JW did a lot of good also but he was under the gun. Meaning, he would still be beholden to the white supremacist that control world football.

T&T despite it's talent would never be a regional footballing power because TV rights, gambling, sponsorships and politics trump "talent". As a nation of color we are there to make up numbers and give the illusion of freedom and democracy, aka fairness. However, our own government was also colluding and contributed to the decline and deterioration of our football, as it is written to be this way. None of the higher ups want to see T&T dominating bigger teams like the US, Mexico etc, so you keep the football in problems, lack of funding and development, with little government cooperation and support. It is by design and JW was just a puppet in that play where now he has no choice but to save his skin because he decided to over extend his power and reach.

In order to maintain the balance in the region where teams from the African diaspora are not a "threat" they have to ensure coaches like Eve, tow the line. In response to Gawd, Eve is controlled, he is paid by FIFA, who do you think he answers to? Do you think he will forfeit this opportunity given to him by what Hadad calls the "Vatican" of world football? No, he will not ruin that opportunity, so in order to maintain the status quo, he tows the line. So it is not Eve's decision to sabotage, it is his superiors giving orders.

In comes Wharfe, another puppet who will as he said, continue where the NC left off, Hadad did his job of effectively crippling our football and removing any semblance of democracy. Now Wharfe will continue to tow the line for his imperial masters and any early exit for Eve, may not be in the cards ever...

So in summary brother, to answer your question, the reason for sabotage of our football, was written before JW, continued with JW and is after JW as well. It is more than just - "Peter, paying for Paul".... It is the only way to stop talented teams like T&T from dominating and creating problems for other bigger nations that are considered more valuable to the cause...

@maxg

You are sitting and watching FIFA pay our coach, pay for our TTPFL, control the NC and now they have a man who is beholden and paid by FIFA running for President of TTFA and you are doubting we are not controlled?

Our nation is rich but yet our governments are puppets and don't intend to invest in it's people because they are also controlled...

Wake up Maxg, you're smarter than that... Do you understand how neo colonialism works?

If you really think we have no talent and Eve is a godsend and our players are rubbish, stop watching our football and posting..

Lasana spelt it out for everyone also, but no one wants to listen to facts and reason, just ole talk...

We are controlled, just like they had to control West Indies selectors and cricket... Too talented and too much betting, politics and money involved for a small talented island or islands in the case of the WI to ruin anything for the bigger nations.

Sometimes I feel some Trinis just blind and not watching how geopolitics works or how corrupt sport is...

 Really ? East of the Dry River did not get that message of our richness. We rich in killers and murderers. We all can attest to that fact.

@deeks

just because PNM doesn't want to rebuild and really invoke change in EDR means we are poor.

There is power and money in crime, control in crime... How do you control a nation and keep them in fear? CRIME... You flock to the govt of the day, to be the savior they will never be...

Ask yourself why you can walk a few blocks and the property value changes almost right across the street? The government and our nation has created that disparity in value...

There's so many things I know personally that will shock you but the two parties don't want enlightenment, they want control
