Final Cap for Edwards?
Wednesday, 16th Nov 2011 11:46
Town right-back Carlos Edwards won his 82nd and perhaps final Trinidad and Tobago cap as his national side beat Guyana 2-0 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Port of Spain overnight. The victory was in vain with the Soca Warriors having been eliminated from the qualification process after losing 2-1 to the Guyanese in Georgetown on Friday.
According to speculation in the Caribbean, 33-year-old Edwards is likely to be one of a number of players announcing their international retirement in the wake of their early World Cup exit.
Blues striker Jason Scotland recently announced that he would no longer play for his country, while former Town loanee Stern John could also end his international career.
Edwards, who played in all three of Trinidad and Tobago’s games at the World Cup in Germany in 2006, scored four international goals.

We as a club have some quality players in some crucial positions on the pitch. Most notably our strikers and centre-backs are probably the best in the league.
Don't Look Back in Anger by everhopeful
After the heartache comes the reflection. For a second, we had a glimpse of the Premier League. Just a glimpse – and it was as beautiful as we remembered. It reignited that spark of hope in all our hearts, the dream that, one day, we might find a better place to play. But for now, Sally can wait.

As I write, I can’t help but feel utter dejection - and I’m sure every person reading this will be in the same situation.
Where Did it Go Wrong? Play-Off Semi-Finals by GeorgeITFC24
We all will be forced to remember the excruciatingly disappointing end to the 2014/15 season. 4-2 on aggregate we lost to that lot up the road. We pretty much nailed it at home with the 1-1 draw. We kept them at bay and matched them in every area. But away at Carrow Road it all just fell apart. But why exactly?
