Not all rooting for T&T
« on: November 20, 2005, 09:41:51 PM »
The Miami/Broward Herald newspaper stated that "not all is rooting for T&T". The paper said that the Uruguayans soccer fans probably won't fall in love with the soca warriors next summer, because their team was far more deserving of a world cup berth than T&T. The writer also said that the very least, T&T should face Uruguay in the playoff, because we(T&T) are geographically closer than Bahrain and Australia.

Living in Florida, I do understand how some people do feel for Uruguay, because there is a lot of south americans here. But with that said, why all of a sudden to some people, the way the playoff is set up, it is a problem to them. To make it short and simple, T&T and Uruguay both had a job to do, the warriors took care of business and Uruguay failed to do so. Mr Leo have about 6 months to get the warriors ready for the big stage, and I know they will put tears in some people eyes. 
RIP Micahel Jackson.

Its a case of sour grapes and when yuh country doe make it yuh does look for any excuse to see who worthy and who should go.

At the end of the day it is the best teams in your region that goes, if they played a lil better and were an automatic qualifier, the writer would not have needed to pen such a piece.

If yuh check it I glad TT going because it is the Caribbean that will be represented a Island team. We ent need no more South or Central AMerican sides across there.

They have plenty other teams who better than us who ent make it but who gives a shit. We qualified and for all the haters........we earned our spot.

When Jamaica qualified, the italians coach who beat russia in a playoff had said that it was a pity that a good side like russia would not be going to the wc but jamaica would.

Life is rough, take your chances when you can and make sure you use it to the fullest.
When T&T start to buss up side in Germany all dis shit talk will disappear like football in monteviedo.

I guess you lost it on that ;)

so to Bahrain:
Man you're all ghosts against T&T, but I can imagine since you had realized that you didn't past the ozbekies with football.

so to Norway.
sorry guys you're good but the Tjech's better, you still have the prettiest country in the world.

By Brian Homewood (Reuters)
Finishing fourth out of six in a group containing the United States, Mexico, Costa Rica, Guatemala and Panama, then beating Bahrain, was good enough to get Trinidad & Tobago to the World Cup.

Twice former champions Uruguay will miss out on Germany 2006 despite drawing home and away with world champions Brazil and beating Argentina.

If the two sides were to meet directly, Uruguay would almost certainly beat the Soca Warriors, many of whose players ply their trade with minor British clubs.

While Trinidad's first World Cup appearance will add colour to the World Cup and has delighted the small Caribbean island nation, their place in the finals has done more than anything to highlight the anomalies of the regional qualifying system.

Nowadays, when major clubs nip off to Asia for a quick pre-season tour, it is hard to imagine why the World Cup qualifiers still need to be divided into regions.

An alternative system would be for Fifa to organise regional preliminaries to weed out the smaller nations, then throw the remainder into, for example, 15 worldwide groups of six with the top two in each qualifying for the finals. The hosts and champions would take the total to 32.

The so-called Third World countries of Latin America and Africa, whose role in soccer is primarily as suppliers of raw talent for the big-money leagues of Europe, would get to see some of the world's top players in action.

There would be fewer games for the bigger nations, no bickering over how many places each region should receive at the finals and, providing the contest was properly seeded, a much better chance of the world's best 32 national teams all reaching the World Cup.

MORE DIFFICULT

For under the present set-up it would almost have been more difficult for Trinidad & Tobago not to reach the finals.

First came a two-leg tie against the Dominican Republic, before matches against the even smaller Caribbean nations of St Vincent & Grenadines and St Kitts & Nevis.

That took them into this year's six-team final stage where, despite five losses in 10 games including a 5-1 drubbing by Guatemala, they were able to qualify for the two-leg playoff against Bahrain, where a 2-1 aggregate win saw them through.

Meanwhile, Uruguay, who finished fifth out of 10 after 18 games in the much tougher South American group, were forced to travel around the world to face Australia in a playoff when it would have been geographically more logical for them to play Trinidad & Tobago and the Socceroos to face Bahrain.

After two matches of unremitting tension and a 1-1 aggregate draw, Australia won on penalties.

As a result, CONCACAF, a confederation where Mexico is the nearest thing to a major soccer power, will have four finalists in Germany, the same as South America, whose teams have between them have won nine of the 17 tournaments to date.

Fifa has never been, and will almost certainly never be able to keep everyone happy with how they decide how many World Cup slots to allocate to each continent.

South America, for example, will have only one more place at the 32-team tournament in Germany than in 1978, when there were only 16 finalists.

As a major provider of talent for European clubs and the continent which did more than any other to start the World Cup, the South Americans believe they deserve at least five automatic places at the finals.

POLITICAL PRISONERS

Other regions snipe back saying that, with only 10 countries, that would mean half the continent's teams taking part.

Asia has never done better than South Korea's fourth place in 2002, yet within hours of the Czech Republic completing the line-up for Germany on Wednesday night, they were asking to add to their four-and-half places.

"We have always wanted more places for Asia," said Monamed Bin Hamman, president of the Asian Football Confederation on Thursday.

As a compromise to the bickering, Fifa has created intercontinental playoffs which once involved Hungary playing Bolivia home and away and Scotland having to travel to Australia to earn their place at the 1986 World Cup.

Perhaps the most famous and ill-fated was in 1973 when the Soviet Union were paired with Chile, where a military coup had just ousted the socialist government of Salvador Allende.

Having been held 0-0 in Moscow in the first leg, the Soviets refused to play the return, alleging that Santiago's National Stadium had been used to hold and torture political prisoners.

Fifa awarded Chile a walkover and the South Americans celebrated by taking to the field and symbolically scoring a goal.

More than 30 years on, with top footballers now major beneficiaries of the industrialisation and globalisation of the sport, perhaps the time is right for football to embrace its global appeal with a truly global World Cup qualifying programme.

Just my thought, but if Uruguay couldn't get past Ecuador what makes them think that they have a divine right to the WC.

T&T vs URUGUAY at the Orange Bowl. The best thing about Uruguay football team is that they bring out the ladies at the games. They also cry a lot and will need comforting arms after we give them a good licking.
To all the single men out there- A good game to attend.

Uruguay...HYMC!!!!

So I guess if both Trinidad and Urguguay made it to the WC and we ended up in an easier group and made it to the 2nd rounds they would then be crying that were they in our group and they would surely have made the 2nd rounds if they were in the other group...HARD LUCK!!!

Jack let we play Uruguay in a friendly before the WC, its a win win situation.  If we beat them we prove we better, if we lose they will just cry that much more when they see us on TV in Germany, because win lose or draw we deserve our spot and we earned it.
