Who is 'we'?
You the poster called Jumpstart is looking for a message board excuse.

Lemme tell you something....Warriors have been bridesmaid 5 times....have they played any of the finals at Providence??? Did they play any of the finals in front of a very supportive crowd? Did any muddie posters here use lack of crowd support for losing? NO.

What did Chase say last week....they wanted to silence the crowd and they did.

TKR has enough experienced players to silence any crowd....so don't start the 'hostile' crowd nonsense

And don't bring up dat crap about two women jumping on a flag....so de crowd hostile to trinis.

And by the way jumping on any country's flag is plain wrong and disrespectful ..and these women were misguided and ignorant.

congratulations on a repudiation 4 years on. TKR wins because Trinidad was winning the t20 competitions long before the CPL started. We won in barbados in 2011, beat a very hostile barbdos team(that had dismissed every team they faced for under 100) on Earl Barrow day in 2012. The one time we played a final at home, a semi final against guyana, we lost. If TKR, essentially the descendent of the TT Red Force had played the 2017, 2018 and 2020 finals away from home, we would have still won because the team was that good. The 2015 title is a different story. Red Steel was a poor franchise and i doubt we could have won away from home.

You are implying that it will be tough...only because of a packed and very hostile crowd"

I guess the crowd was hostile and that is why Johnny Bravo won today

Let the games begin wink

no.....im implying the hostile crowd(i make no apologies for saying that; GT doh like TKR) is going to be added pressure. The pressure comes from having to play another side in a must win situation who just came off a win, in home conditions. The crowd is added pressure.

TKR did make a mountain for themselves this CPL.

That’s purely because we played poor cricket…..especially with the batting.

All the “other stuff” is just noise. Something that an experienced team like TKR knows how to deal with.

No excuses. We only have ourselves to blame.

rell poor.....idk but them dudes expect russell to make it rain every single time. Also, and i think this is the biggest factor, the fielding does get reel lax in the last 3 or four overs, allowing sides to make 10, 20 runs more than they should make. 2nd time it happened in two games. And we need to sort out the opener problem before saturday.

never. and quite frankly we've lost badly when we've played there....i think we won once...by seven runs in 2016. Which is why i said TKR dig themselves into a really deep hole. I was hoping we would have beaten SKN Patriots so there wouldn't be as much pressure on saturday. Honestly, TKR could win, but im also seeing the possibility of carnage

i am still surprised but admittedly can't remember all the games...i think i remember one when Rutherford and Pooran (or was it Hetty) came out blazing...

still TKR got the mental wood over GAW...so that is your 12th man

there is a nice wicket now too so now obvious spin advantage

knock out game for both so it should be a good one

true, munro is inconsistent, but the fielding in that last 3 overs is giving away 10 extra runs and one of the openers is denying us 20 runs.

I think Jumpy is right. Don’t think TKR ever beat GAW at Providence.

Silencing the home crowd is the aim of every away team. Nothing unique there

What was rare in that instance is that Kings managed to do it.

I know that the Deo Last ball 6 is the one that most Guyanese cling on to to this day.

For me, the most memorable Guyana victory was the T20 semi final at QPO when the Hety of that time, Jonathan Foo, took Guyana to an improbable victory, which led to victory in the finals and ultimately a berth in the T20 Champions League in South Africa.

We just gave away that match. At home to boot.

I find the back and forth on this thread to be nauseating.It is particularly ridiculous in today's setting when the teams are not National teams but have players from many different countries.The reality is that many posting this jingoistic nonsense are blissfully unaware that their ancestors 3 or 4 generations ago could well have been from a different territory or island.I have Bajan,Trini,Jamaican,St Lucian and Antiguan relatives and who knows what other countries.
Allyuh need to stop this garbage!!!!
