Congrats to T&T and all their fans....
any video LOL
I was gonna say there isn't much love lost between Iran and Bahrain when it comes to soccer is there?
congrats...good to hear ur countrys enjoying it
Most unfortunate indeed. Wow, I'm watching the news and there are riots occurring. Was up with those bastards, can't they lose with dignity? That's the kind of thing that disgusts me. What a poor representation of ones country.
That is pretty big of you to admit being wrong. Not many here will do that and I respect that.
As for the rule, as I interpret it, if the ball strikes the ground then the ball is then in play. However the punting motion is considered possesion by the keeper. The description on the link I provided gives a pretty good description of how to apply this law.
Thanks Morado. Much love to all the cats that supported the Reds. They deserved to go to Germany. History has been created FOUR teams from Concacaf.
Let's prepare and do well in Germany'06. Big up to CRC, USA, MEX, and TRINIDAD & TOBAGO
That is sad that they are acting this way. I thought they showed very little class during the match, and at the end.
So are you going to pay up through paypal?
Well, THAT's not the reason; if five guys surrounded the keeper, the other team would flood midfiled and the GK would just THROW it forward for a substantial counter-attack...
Look, I said I was wrong. I've been wrong before; I'll be wrong again.
I'm NOT wrong about the sad day this is for the leadership of the sport in terms of what the Warner faction will DO with - how they will USE - the hard work and success of the T&T players...
...o.k. we can agree on something...however your "common sense" refers to the playing of the game, the tactics if you will, while mine refers to the refereeing of the game....I agree that it's really a joke how Warner manipulated the system (he had to be involved in the ludicrous senario whereby T&T played Bahrain while Uruguay played Australia....anyone else think that the Aussies and the Uruguayans would have waltzed through the other two....)....I think it's great for a small country like T&T to make the world cup....the challenge now (and it is a BIG one) is to proove next summer that they belong....and don't just get blasted in 3 games.
More details on the Bahrain fans stoning T&T?
After the goal, they started to throw blocks of ice at the T&T fans. Apparently at the end of the game, the Bahrain supporters started ripping out seat covers and began to throw them not only at the players but also at the fans. Police had to intervene and from what I heard on the radio today, everyone associated with T&T had to be escorted out of the stadium.
The treatment in general was pretty terrible. I heard that the team was only allowed to practise with half the number of balls required and the Laventille Rhythm section (steelband etc) travelled all the way across to Bahrain, the were not allowed to take their instruments inside.
However, it's all good here and tomorrow is a national holiday!
Does anybody have any pics or vids of the incidents?
Is has to due with WCQ for 2002. I Don't quite remember the details but Bahrain was quite happy when Iran was knocked out in favor of Saudi Arabia.
From what I gathered from the Iranian posters around here Bahrain stalled, dove, played injured, really crap ball, glad to see that T&T were able to beat that.
I don't know that it's fair to say Jack Warner had a hand in determining the play-off structure for this round of final qualifiers. If the four confederations involved with the play-offs entered on the basis of a blind draw, how could you say it was rigged? If you based the play-off pairings on how each confederation showed at WC2002, CONMEBOL and AFC would have been slightly higher than CONCACAF and OFC. Also, going back over time, it is fair to argue that CONMEBOL is the strongest of the 4 confederations and OFC as a whole, is the weakest. Therefore, why not match them up together? If the Solomon Islands had upset Australia in the OFC final in September, how many "conspiracy" theories would have cropped up about the South Americans and how they "fixed" the draw to meet the OFC representative?
And I ask what has Trinidad & Tobago done to them to deserve being attacked like this?*
Anyway, I guess you guys now have a months headstart on the mas celebrations.
*Please note the sarcasm in that statement
Bahrainis may appeal to Fifa
I hope they get a bitter taste of their own medicine. See how the Uzbeks feel.
They may want to save their apppeals for the suspensions coming down after accosting the ref. Of course who knows WHAT they got going on at FIFA that allowed them to get a 1-0 loss thrown out after Uzbekistan appealed an improper ruling on a penalty kick the Uzbeks should have re-taken (now THAT is getting screwed in all orifices, by the ref and FIFA).
And while it is a moot point anyway, looking at the replay the whole controversial play happened in the box.
How much money will they throw at them?
I don't think it is a protestable call though. The law is quite clear on this and frankly I do not see FIFA making any changes. What poor sports.
Great to see Dwight Yorke finally make it to the World Cup.
If.....if's and but's were candy and nuts.....and anyway didn't the Aussies beat Solomons about 9-0 or something...I believe the Aussies are piles better than either T&T or Bahrain and few would argue that Uruguay aren't better than those two...
I'm not saying the Warner contingent did anything here; I'm saying that there's no doubt that one of the obstacles to Warner competing effectively for the FIFA Presidency was that his nation had never seen a World Cup. Now they will. Now Austin can compete along the lines of football development, when in fact it's been a particular, Orwellian KIND of development, just like FIFA exhibits a particular, Orwellian KINd of 'democracy' in its daily business.
That is, none at all, when the veil is pierced; Warner - if elected - will continue the tradition established by Joao and Sepp, and the sea-change needed in sport governance will not have even the chance to manifest for another 7-13 years.
And your point is what? Any team can beat another team on any given day. Didn't England lose to Australia about 2 months ago?
Does that mean that Australia are piles better than England?
