T&T Imploded?

I saw this over at Du Nord, but you can check out their main page for the bulk of the info.

It appears that Trinidad & Tobago have closed up shop for it's National Team program, due to lack of funds. So right now the Soca Warriors won't be playing any matches in the foreseeable future. Aren't they scheduled to take part in the Gold Cup?

Yup, they are and they are grouped with the USA in Group B.

So, assuming that ol' Jackie Warner can't get his own country back into gear with a national team, what does this do to the make up of the Gold Cup? I would assume that CONCACAF would just bring in another Carribean side to take their place, Jamaica or such?

This is a very sad reflection on CONCACAF, one of their members has to shut up shop less than a year after qualifying for the World Cup.

Soccer America hinted at this a couple days back, but this is clearly a step to the worse. Like you, I wonder who they'll line up. A team like Jamaica, assuming they haven't fallen off that badly, could alter the dynamic in Group B....no fair.

This is just great. It is hard to argue that CONCACAF tournaments should get priority for the US when jokes like this take place.

I wonder how much of this is an attempt to embarrass the T&T government to get them to put up some funding.
