  1. to be honest i really didn’t appreciate the boring football style of New Zealand on tuesday night. I understand they may not have wanted to suffer a loss but if they have any true World Cup aspirations they need to play more attractive football. A team like Mexico with faster moving players than the Soca Warriors would embarrass them.

  2. Shahdon Winchester is a very good option and a finisher. Plaza and Peltier very good in terms of dribbling and speed. However my issue is that these guys are not positioning themselves to have a crack at goal at first sight. They killed 4 out of 5 counter attacking opportunities by casually playing the ball back.

    • Well spotted and I’m pretty sure the coach was trying to tell the players the same thing. The plus side, though, is there were not as many turnovers in dangerous areas. So, we just have to keep working to get the balance right.

  3. Horrible miss by Kenwyne Jones in the best play of the match. Dissappointed that Cato didn’t get a run cause he is dynamite. Guerra had a great impact. I think T&T needs to rotate a few formations that doesn’t revolve around Kenwyne Jones. Once he has an off game it feels like the whole team is struggling since he is supposed to be on the end of that final ball. Big up to Hyland and Mitchell for solid, professional performances.

    • You’re right. Kenwyne is doing a really good job as captain but they may need to try some different approaches soon, especially since Kenwyne is unlikely to be available for the Caribbean Cup. The only other centre forwards his type available at the moment are Rundell Winchester and Jamal Gay. Or they can go for mobility with Trevin Caesar, Willis Plaza or even Lester Peltier as the focal points on top… The other option hasn’t shown himself yet. And that’s Shahdon Winchester.
      Shahdon has loads of ability and will get a chance to stake his claim soon.
      (Presumably Cornell Glen will be given time to settle down in India).
