Based on WHAT...your understanding of two likkle coaching dvd weh teach a likkle something bout formations and tactics ?
A coaching DVD came out on this game already? I better run to the store before they sell out.
Mr. don't need a coaching DVD man,
Give us your take on what you saw Daley doing on the pitch. Tell us why he wasn't useless in this game. Because I like him is not an acceptable answer.
Tell us how many counters JA had for the entire game. Wouldn't you expect counters after counters out of this formation? You know like what JA saw against the USA whereby Tappa had to change to a 4 man backline just to contain the onslaught?
Tell us the percentage of balls won by your boss central defenders in the box...What do you think a better team would do with those balls dropping all over the box?
Tell us why with a man less in the midfield, a weaker team (NZ)was operating so freely in that area of the field. Why more passes weren't intercepted for counters or why the KIWI on the ball wasn't closed down with more ferocity. What's with this bend but don't break defense in midfield against a weaker team?
What was disappointing to me is that I didn't see the effort to pressure the ball. This was a friendly which I don't usually put much stock in, but even in a friendly you want to see the right tactics attempted even if they are not successful. Actually that is the only importance I place on friendly games, that the right tactics are being attempted.
Great goals though.
This was not a vintage Jamaica performance or Jamaica's strongest team...and we all know and have said that already.
You have focused on what this team was NOT doing...and if that is your focus, you have every right to that.
What I saw from this game that was missing from the USA game was an ATTEMPT at playing the right tactics under the prevailing conditions of this game...the most important thing in getting the midfield to defend more and the forwards tracking back...that is the tactics that Jamaica needs, regardless of the quality of the team or personnell, on the pitch.
I expect to see more of the things that were lacking when Jamaica has a stronger side, with our top ballas, on the pitch but I also expect to see that team doing the things that this team was doing, only doing them better.
Dada Daley's improvement lies in the same area of the team improvement...a more all-round defensive contribution; are you saying he was useless in this game, or that he didn't have a reasonably good game ?
I agree, very poor defending on the goals against at crucial times in the match, when the team had just scored, which is purely lack of concentration and when one defender was subbed for another.
No, not a vintage performance from Jamaica but signs that things are headed in the right direction...I call things as I see them
