Old

Honestly.....their selection is just a smoke screen

The national team is really being used as a showcase for players (especially from a particular club) to teams in vietnam, india, thailand etc

Business model is as follows:

Player A sold to x club for $X

"Agent" aka Club owner gets the entire fee. Player gets a salary which may or may not include accomodations, transport etc

Repeat and rinse

What do you mean by target?

If by target you mean WC qualification......forget it. That not happening for 2018...or the forseeable future.

If you mean Gold Cup qualification.....that's debateable. I think we need to beat Hait, Suriname, and the winner of the Centro Americano Cup for the final qualification spot. That's "easier" than qualifying for the World Cup in 2018....but may still be beyond this incarnation of the team.

If you mean # of players to be signed by viertnamese, thai, clubs etc....then I would take a HUGE GUESS and say maybe 4 or 5 players per year would be satisfactory for the club owner(s)

I meant the first two-WC and Gold Cup
Then it's a vicious cycle- can't qualify so make money which then depletes the side so can't qualify so make money which depletes...

The TTFF worse than Libya now that Jackdaffi gawn

With Cornell Glenn coming back, is Kenwyne's position as Center Forward under threat?

I guess they bring back Carlos Edwards as cover for that guy who likes breaking curfew (I can't remember the name). The guy always leaves to go to fete and the coach always banning him. I think he is the brother of Kevon Cooper.

Molino is the fella you talking about. He is the 1/2 brother of Cooper. This fetting mentality is something that ingrained in these boys sad

New coach dropping men


Seattle Sounders left-back Joevin Jones has been dropped from the Trinidad and Tobago squad after new coach Tom Saintfiet accused him of having "no interest" in helping the national team.

The Belgian coach, hired in December after Stephen Hart was sacked, also criticized the commitment of other T&T players and accused at least one of showing up to training smelling of alcohol.

Saintfiet had originally named Jones to the squad that will face Suriname and Haiti this week in crucial playoff matches to qualify for this summer's CONCACAF Gold Cup, but he said on Sunday that Jones did not appear at training as expected this weekend.

"I spoke with him individually and he did not show up at all for the camp," Saintfiet said, according to Wired 868. "So I think he has no interest to help his country to qualify."

Saintfiet said he had allowed Jones to skip the previous week's friendlies against Nicaragua after the 25-year-old had an extended Sounders season that ended with a win on penalties in the MLS Cup final on Dec. 10.

But the coach said he was then disappointed to learn that Jones had played in a friendly with his former club W Connection against the Haiti national team on Friday.

"Joevin is here on holiday and Joevin played, two days ago, a friendly with W Connection against Haiti," Saintfiet said. "So if his club had no problem with him playing a friendly match with a club where he is not registered, I see no problem why he cannot play for his national team...

"I had face-to-face communication with him. I said take a few days off and see you on Jan. 1. I told him where and when and which time [to enter] camp and he never called or informed us in any way that he would not show up."


Joevin Jones helped the Seattle Sounders win the MLS Cup final on Dec. 10.
Saintfiet said he also dropped Daneil Cyrus and Jomal Williams from the team after they arrived to camp late.

"Two of the players came one and a half hours too late in camp and had still decent smell of alcohol around," he said. "That was Daneil Cyrus and Jomal Williams. Both were immediately sent home back to party."

Cyrus denied smelling of alcohol and said the coach was referring only to Williams, Wired 868 reported.

Saintfiet also had harsh words for Orlando City midfielder Kevin Molino, who he said asked not to be named to the team for this month's qualifiers.

"[Molino] said he was not available [to play] for his country at that point in time," Saintfiet said. "He told me he didn't feel motivated or ready for that. And later, I [heard] he played games at lower league or social level."

Trinidad and Tobago was required to play in the Gold Cup playoffs after a surprise loss to Martinique in October. It must top the three-team group this week to advance to a final playoff against a Central American team.

After Trinidad and Tobago lost its first two games in the final round of CONCACAF World Cup qualifying, federation president David John Williams said that Saintfiet's appointment could be short-term if he does not earn results in March's games against Panama and Mexico.


Social event = Fête Match

Maybe that is why the man had to call back Cornell and Carlos

T&T 1-2 Sur

The coach said he built the team around Cornell Glenn but then he got injured and didn't have another plan shock


National football head coach Tom Saintfiet believes the absence of forward Cornell Glen played a great part in T&T’s 2-1 loss to Suriname in their opening Caribbean Football Union (CFU) fifth place play-off match at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva on Wednesday night.

In the post match press conference, he cited his disappointment in the defeat and that fitness and last minute changes in strategy worked against the Soca Warriors.

“Our strategy in Nicaragua was clear that we wanted to play with Cornell Glen. We worked on that. We prepared our team and 20 minutes before the start of the game he gets injured in the warming up, hamstring injury so in the warming up we had to change in strategy. We had to bring Akeem Roach in,” said Saintfiet.

T&T suffered an early blow when forward Glen suffered a hamstring injury in the warm up and had to be replaced in the starting team by Roach, while defender Maurice Ford was also ruled out of the 18-man team for the match through injury.

Saintfiet shared that not having a full bench to operate with worked against his game plan.

“I had no more striker on the bench. I had only six instead of the allowed seven because I could not bring a seventh replacement on the bench. I had no extra striker option, for instance Trevin Ceasar,” he said.

The result now puts T&T in not only a must-win situation against Haiti on Sunday, but must also hope that Haiti defeats Suriname today and not by a big margin.

“We hope Haiti wins by not too big margin then is all or nothing. We have to win in 90 minutes preferably because if you win in 90 minutes it counts better than winning in extra time against Haiti on Sunday and I hope I have the whole 20 men available for selection and Cornell Glen because I think that was the biggest miss of today (Wednesday) so I hope he is available Sunday.”

Despite a brilliant strike by midfielder Tyrone Charles in the 81st minute to level the scores at one after Guno Kwasie put the visitors ahead in the 76th, T&T later conceded a goal in the 109th minute as Ivanildo Rozenblad sealed the winner for Suriname.

“It was a very disappointing result but nothing is over yet. We need to hope that Haiti wins on Friday (today). Doesn’t matter which result but that Haiti wins against Suriname and then its up to us if we can beat Haiti in 90 minutes.

“Naturally it is very sour at the moment to imagine that it’s not in our own hands. We have to support Haiti on Friday, recover now and hopefully Cornell Glen will be fit and hopefully next match I’ll have seven players on the bench and not six and we will be ready to bounce back and still qualify.

Fitness seemed to be a glaring issue in the opening match for the local team.

“I am almost sure that it is a problem. There are a few reasons. The players we get from abroad are not in the middle of a season even a player like (Radanfah) Abu Bakr, his season is more than two months finished. Carlyle Mitchell season a while finished. The guys who play abroad are not match fit at this current time.

“The players in the local league play in a different level than national team football. The tempo is higher. Darren Charles gave everything that he could Mitchell was injured but he battled and a few others Abu Bakr also but it showed that physically that we are not top fit to play international football.

Saintfiet was not impressed by the composition of T&T’s offensive attacks and that his players turned over the ball too often.

“I am not fully satisfied over the whole 120 minutes about our transition. We lost too many balls. Our passing and way of attacking was not controlled. I am not satisfied with that.

“We did not have the quality or the perfection in front of the goal either.”

Saintfiet said that he was upset after and he let his players know this after the loss.

“I was not happy. I was angry in the dressing room. I don’t feel pressure because we lose I hate losing. The biggest pressure is from myself,” he said. “I can only analyse the match and plan the way forward with my staff. On Sunday it will be all or nothing.”





Sur 2-4 Haïti

On Sunday T&T needs to beat Haïti by 2 clear goals to qualify. Anything less than a 2 goal win will see Haïti advance.

Suriname can't finish higher than 2nd.
