“[…] It’s a breath of fresh air to see TNT actually playing with a game plan that’s well thought out for each encounter.
“Finally, we’ve found a real coach. Our embarrassment is now replaced with optimism and we’re now proud to be Trinbagonian again…”
The following letter to the editor on the Trinidad and Tobago Men’s National Senior Team’s draw against Mexico was submitted to Wired868 by Nicholas, a football coach:
Soca Warriors, you’ve won our hearts again. After a failed World Cup qualifying campaign, many of us vowed never to watch another Trinidad and Tobago game. Our hearts were broken as we were horribly embarrassed to say the least.
Who would’ve have thought we would have a change of heart so soon?
Can you tell me, what was wrong? Not even luck wanted to be on our side—TNT football was moving in a backward motion, speedily.
Indeed, it was the right call to not only get rid of the former coach but to make Angus Eve the replacement. He surely deserved a chance.
Now, everything about TNT football looks better. The players seems happier, we’ve seen discipline, passion, determination, and so much unity. Certainly, there’s a will to fight back. Soon it may be a total come back!
It’s a breath of fresh air to see TNT actually playing with a game plan that’s well thought out for each encounter.
Finally, we’ve found a real coach. Our embarrassment is now replaced with optimism and we’re now proud to be Trinbagonian again. This is where we belong!
It’s hard to believe the transformation we’ve seen; it makes you wonder what was really going on?
That was an unbelievable performance to see TNT remain so disciplined for over 100 minutes, a team that just recently couldn’t string three full passes.
So fans, that wasn’t about the prettiest performance, but it was the most strategic one. Well played!
Yes, we have a long way to go still, but please give a standing ovation. The boys have won our hearts again!
