Edwards and Trinidad and Tobago Draw
Tuesday, 9th Jul 2013 08:57
Blues skipper Carlos Edwards played the full 90 minutes as Trinidad and Tobago began their CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign by drawing 2-2 with El Salvador in New Jersey overnight. The 34-year-old was winning his 85th cap but was making his debut in the competition.
The Town midfielder was involved in the Soca Warriors’ first goal, his 10th minute cross deflecting to Keon Daniel, who beat the keeper from the edge of the box.
Rodolfo Zalaya subsequently scored twice to put El Salvador in the lead before Kenwyne Jones equalised with 18 minutes remaining.
Trinidad and Tobago face Haiti in their second game in Miami on Friday and then complete their group matches when they come up against Honduras in Houston next Monday. Honduras beat Haiti 2-0 in last night's other group game.
Edwards will join up with the Town squad once his national side is eliminated from the tournament.

A Plea to Mick: Don't Hold Us Back by Pickersblue22
After nearly four years, we know exactly what we get. Mick McCarthy arrived in November 2012 with the club at a low ebb. He lifted us from a dreary, uninspiring outfit, consistently languishing in mid-table, to the surprising, joyful, wonderful highs of 2014/15.
Far East Anglians by Marcus
I’ve never really liked the term ‘Far East’ as it tends to conjure images of China and Japan rather than the plethora of different countries and cultures in South East Asia. However, for the sake of it, ‘Far East Anglians’ works quite well to indicate Town (and the other lot's) supporters here in Asia.

It's fair to say that despite having no expectations, the start of the season hasn't gone to plan so far for Mick McCarthy. Quite clearly six points from six and progression to the second round of the EFL Cup would have been the aim before a ball was kicked - it's fair to say we've been a little off in that respect.
