    Every 2 years we hear about Jamaica being good and oh lord they're fast and this is their year and they're ohsodangerous.

    And then we go out at beat them 3-0 or something and everyone remembers they kind of suck.

    I expect nothing different, except to write this exact post in 2 years when we play them again in qualifying.


    ROTFLMAO!!!

    You guys do a better job at beating Klinsmann than a whole raft of European teams do. I'm not sure how you figured him out, but you've become his bogey team.

    Chelsea: Crystal Palace had agreement in place for Reading defender Michael Hector before Blues move





    Crystal Palace had a deal in place to sign Reading defender Michael Hector before Chelsea swooped in, according to Palace co-owner Steve Parish. Despite holding talks with Alan Pardew's side on the final day of the summer transfer window, Hector, 23, decided to sign for the Premier League champions, before returning to the Royals on loan for the duration of the 2015-16 season.

    And while Parish was disappointed to see one of the club's final transfer targets slip away, he understands the player's decision to reject a move to Selhurst Park. "We had a deal with Michael Hector at Reading – that was a done deal and we thought we had that one," Parish said, speaking to Holmesdale Radio.

    "Unfortunately the might of Chelsea came in and the player chose to go there, so at least we are getting the right targets. We must be doing the right thing, so that was disappointing but you don't win them all and we live to fight another day.

    "I am sure Michael will do very well at Chelsea and we wish him all the best. We don't hold grudges, Chelsea are a big club and I think he has supported them since a kid, so you can understand why he chose them."

    Hector was the second defender to join Chelsea on deadline day. Earlier in the day, the club secured the services of Senegal defender Papy Djilobodji, paying French side Nantes a reported £4m ($6.1m) to bring him to Stamford Bridge. The 25 year old signed a four-year contract.

    Jose Mourinho's side had spent the previous weeks in pursuit of Everton's England international John Stones. The Toffees, however, remained resolute in their attempts to hold on to the player, rejecting at least two offers from the Blues in addition to a transfer request from Stones. Chelsea also failed with two late bids for Paris Saint-Germain defender Marquinhos, according to Sky Sports.

    READING FC NEWSMourinho Wants Hector Back At Chelsea

    By BucksRoyal  @BucksRoyal on Nov 22, 2015, 3:32p

    With Chelsea struggling defensively in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho for some reason wants to recall Michael Hector... because he'll definitely be an improvement on Terry and Cahill.



    Things may be bad at Reading, but they're not quite 'Chelsea bad'. Whereas the Royals sit just outside the Championship Playoff places in 7th, the West London team have endured a truly torrid campaign so far - currently in a shockingly bad 15th. One big point of concern for manager Jose Mourinho has been the rapid deterioration at the back - Chelsea's 23 goals conceded in 2015/16 is better than only five teams in the Premier League.

    Well, it looks like the 'Special One' is trying to remedy that by adding another option to Chelsea's defence. Today, it's been reported that he wants to recall Michael Hector, who Reading sold to Chelsea in the summer before getting him back in on loan. This is another piece of bad news for the board, who recently had the whole 'will he, won't he?' saga with Steve Clarke a few days ago - for a full re-cap, you can find our complete coverage here.

    But, to his credit, Reading's executive Samrit Thanakanchanasut (his surname scores an incredible 28 in Scrabble) has held his ground by, well, telling Chelsea to shove it.

    "Chelsea want him back early but I think we'll retain him as we agreed until the end of the season."

    Schaefer: Jamaica more than muscle

    (FIFA.com) 23 Mar 2016



    Jamaica coach Winfried Schaefer talks about football with a capital F. He presses all the romantic buttons – heart and technique and spirit. Raised in the rigours of the German game, he’s made a career trekking to the far corners of the world and smoothing fine football from raw, sometimes crude, clay.

    “No! We’re not a hard team,” he told FIFA.com, discussing his Jamaica side, enjoying a splendid renaissance. “With us, in Jamaica, it’s not about strength. We have a technique that many in the region don’t understand. We’re more than speed and muscle.”

    Schaefer’s eyes burn with intensity when he’s angry, and he’s often angry on the touchline. The 65-year-old is cut by any slight to his team. You get a sense this man, with a wizard-white shock of long hair, is on a mission. When talk turns to his Reggae Boyz, he uses pronouns like We and Us. He feels a part of what’s happening, and the people of the colourful Caribbean island have taken him to their hearts.

    More than meets the eye
    Schaefer, who won a UEFA Cup and a Bundesliga title with Borussia Monchengladbach in a 20-year playing career, dismisses the notion that there’s little more to his men than brawn and pace. “You don’t beat the United States on their home soil with brute force,” he said, harking back to the CONCACAF Gold Cup semi-final last summer where his side were the better team in a 2-1 win against the Stars and Stripes in Atlanta. “Football doesn’t work this way. I know because I’ve been in the game a long time and I’ve seen it all over the world.”

    His celebrations were wild after the historic win over the Americans booked Jamaica’s first-ever spot in the final of CONCACAF’s cup of nations. His procession of hashtags and exclamations on Twitter were evidence of a youthful zeal, undiminished after all these years. “We shone a light on Jamaica with that win,” he said, still proud, still inspired. He’s full of belief in his side, who meet Costa Rica home and away later this month in qualifying for Russia 2018.

    Schaefer’s coaching career has taken him to four continents. He led Thailand in a steamy outpost of southeast Asian football. He’s held the reins on the high-pressure stages of Europe, with Karlsruher and Stuttgart. He coached Cameroon to a CAF African Cup of Nations’ title and took the Indomitable Lions to a FIFA World Cup™. Between playing and coaching, Schaefer’s been in the game for nearly 45 years.

    “It would be a mistake for any team to look at us and see a simple problem,” he said of the upcoming Russia 2018 qualifiers, and also his opponents in the upcoming Copa America: Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela. “We are not Mexico or USA, we are Jamaica. This is reality. We have a strong spirit. You can’t beat my guys for spirit.”

    Schaefer often boasts about building this Jamaica side in one year. It’s a stretch, born of a colourful personality, but not much of one. When he arrived on the island in 2013, the team was stagnating. He gave debut caps to over a dozen players and brought in talent from England and USA’s top leagues.

    Jamaica’s new captain epitomizes the team’s confidence and professionalism. “We’re all proud of what Wes Morgan is doing in England,” Schaefer said, talking about the big man who commands Jamaica’s defence with quiet, formidable force. Morgan also captains Leicester City – surprise toppers of England’s Premier League – and he’s added grit and experience to a Jamaica team that lost its way since last qualifying for the World Cup in 1998.

    Leicester City inspiration
    “He’s an inspiration to the young guys coming up on the island,” Schaefer said of his skipper. “He’s a part of the biggest story in football right now and you can’t overestimate what it means for a player like that to pull on a Jamaica jersey.”

    Schaefer is quick to lavish praise, also, on Alvas Powell, who won MLS title last term with Portland Timbers. Former England youth sensation Giles Barnes, Crystal Palace’s Adrian Mariappa, Jobi McAnuff and Darren Mattocks are also leading lights in a side that Schaefer insists are no longer “living in the past.”

    The last Jamaica team that went to a World Cup was a blend of foreign-born, foreign-based, and homegrown – with a strong hand at the helm. It’s a balance that’s proved elusive for the last 25 years. Schaefer, a true believer in the redemptive powers of the game, is sewing together a team. He’s making an Us and a We. “I’ve been around a long time,” he said, poking a finger. “It’s not the best player that wins anything. No, no.” He turns his palm up and smiles warmly. “It’s the best team that does big things. We have a balance now. We are building each other up.”

    Hi, guys!

    Any idea about the starting lineup for tomorrow? Chile will probably roll with Herrera; Isla, Medel, Jara, Beausejour; Aránguiz, Silva, Fernández/Orellana; Orellana/Vargas, Pinilla, Sánchez.

    Match is sold out, btw.

    Cheers.

    how much love and respect is Wes Morgan getting right now? Not often a CONCACAF nation has a player winning the PL title.

    I'm a Liverpool fan but I say Well done to LC.
