Can anyone honestly answer the question?
Patriot... thanks for the thorough report, I don't know if you were taking notes or if your memory juss that good but I really appreciate the level of detail yuh provide.
As a former Holy Cross man myself I have always been partial to Kelvin Jack... but pardna, between this press conference today and the fortright answers you gave Flex in his interview, I have an immense amount of respect for you and the uncompromising stance you have taken on this and other matters (suit against your former agent, Mike Berry for one). I like the brand of leadership that you, Sancho and even Shaka in absentia are providing and God-willing the younger players will stand up and take note. It must start somewhere.
Nice to hear that Kevin Harrison still in the mix... another tireless soldier in a thankless job. In the other thread Weary mentioned that Mike Townley and Jack flew in just for this... I'm sure Kevin did as well, thanks for your selfless efforts the past 4 years
As for Jack... it seriously boggles the mind how downright schupid and misinformed Trinidadians can be. I can't believe people seriously thinking that what this crook saying about the players getting paid is true. In fact I can't believe that people take anything coming out both sides of that man mouth as truth. The thought that this man is seriously contending for a senior political/government position in the next couple days tells me all I need to know about the sophistication of the TnT populace.
That some on here want to make the argument that things cannot POSSIBLY get worse if Jack Warner is placed anywhere near the national Treasury compared to the current administration... is as alarming as it is disappointing. I hold no quarters for Manning, but there is incompetence/arrogance/corruption... and then there is evil/arrogance/corruption. I don't know Jack Warner's soul so it may be presumptuous of me to call him evil... but one cannot possibly be as boldfaced a liar and as defiantly mean-spirited towards others... for no good reason... and yet know the fear of God in your heart. It just can't happen.
His coziness with Volney has rightly been highlighted by Mr. Townley as a cause for concern... partisan politics aside, would that the voting populace would take note of this as well, and ask the question whether they trust either of these two men in a position of leadership, control and influence in TnT.
i ent bumping meh gum too much. barca is a very good side. i just hoping we pressure them high, create and finish we chances and don't defend like a U-14 side and we go be good. oh and let's hope almunia have de game of his life...why wenger persists with this idiot idk
Where the La LIga men?
It seems that Real gone top on goal difference with a win over sevilla..........
Real move top with last-gasp win
Real Madrid came from two goals behind to beat Sevilla in a thrilling game as Manuel Pellegrini's side moved ahead of champions Barcelona on goal difference.
Xabi Alonso's own goal gave Sevilla a first-half lead with the visitors going 2-0 down after keeper Iker Casillas misread Ivica Dragutinovic's free-kick.
Cristiano Ronaldo's sidefooted finish sparked the Real comeback with Sergio Ramos heading home to make it 2-2.
And Rafael van der Vaart's scrambled stoppage-time goal sealed the victory.
Earlier on Saturday Barcelona drew 2-2 with Almeria, with the champions coming from behind twice to earn a point thanks to two goals from Lionel Messi.
It was an uncomfortable game for Barca, who had coach Pep Guardiola sent to the stands in the first half, with striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic red-carded in the second period.
That draw provided Real with the opportunity to leapfrog their bitter rivals, though Pellegrini's team did it the hard way after Alonso put the ball in his own net as he tried to stop it reaching Alvaro Negredo.
There seemed little danger when Dragutinovic strolled up to a Sevilla free-kick but somehow the ball crept inside the post with Casillas scrambling across his line to put the visitors 2-0 up.
Cue that remarkable Real recovery with Ronaldo firing in his 14th goal of the season and Ramos heading in following a corner four minutes later.
With time running out Ronaldo seemed certain to score only for Raul to get in the way of the Portuguese striker's shot, but substitute Van der Vaart's close-range finish ensured the perfect finish for an ecstatic Bernabeu crowd.
The win was no more than Real deserved given Guti hit the bar with a ferocious shot, while Gonzalo Higuain struck the woodwork twice in three minutes, with goalkeeper Andres Palop thwarting wave after wave of Madrid attacks.
With the title race in La Liga finely poised, Barca and Real will meet in a potentially decisive El Clasico on 11 April.

Rivaldo goal take win simply because it crowned off a hattrick which to me will go down as the best single-handed performance I've ever seen...
1) 3rd goal in a hattrick of class goals
2) Bicycle from on top the box, under tight marking
3) Final minute of the game
4) Must win game to qualify for champs league
5) Club president couldn't contain himself and subsequently issued a formal apology.
It doh get better than that.
We are getting what we truly deserve and this shite about good performance and cinderella team is smoke being blown up our arse, we playing the game like there is no thought process involved in it, mind u the 1st thing to go when a man tired is his "thinking" ablity. ok so we we werent embarrassed, so everybody good. was that our aim? was that why all the money and time was invested? To not be embarrassed? we will never meet a weaker italian side than this one.
We went neck and neck with the italians so we should hold our heads high, absoulte and utter poppy cock. no wonder we cant produce a team that can be world beaters, we still battling with inferiority complexes. how did the usa beat spain at the confed cup by saying this is the #1 team in the world so we would do good to jus go neck to neck with them and lose.
our aim is way too low and I for one will not be congratulating this team who vex lost ,this is big men football. you screwed urself and i cannot applaud that. i really hate when we throw away a game announcers coming and say they made us proud. After all this time and effort to not b in contention to make the 2nd round is really heart breaking 4 me. i cannot express that enough.if italy dont lose a game but dont make it out of this group u think the italian media would say this team made them proud?. not a chance in hell. we are settingthe standards too low and for us competing is a win. thats a losers mentality. i must admit as much as some jamiacans annoy me sometimes i admire the mentality that they have, that no one is better than them and that mentality is evident in the way they play all sports. imagine a jamaican pardner giving me talks about their horse that won in santa rosa geez they compete 4 everything.
i really hate to lose to a side thats not physically better than us. we need to stop encouraging a losers mentality where jus competing makes us proud. if so then we dont belong on the world stage.

Laliga on Espn 2. Real vs Xerez. Ronaldo already score one. He shooting like he releasing bullets from his tugs!
I don't think you are reading other people's post, there cannot be any alternative to the TTFF because FIFA is set up so they don't have to allow one. This football business is not a democracy, it does not matter what alternative there is in place of the TTFF bacause FIFA will never let something like that be recognised. It does not matter if the players union, the govt, the private sector and the public get together and agree on an alternative FIFA does not have to do a thing.
I think you are one of those people who think of the national team as really a team representing Trinidad and Tobago, it is not, it is a team representing the TTFF. No different to if KFC having a small goal side and playing against the small goal side of Jamaica KFC, only the board of KFC makes the rules.
If a serious local challenge is mounted to the TTFF and the players and clubs stop recognising them then Concacaf/FIFA will stop recognising T&T ball, it's that simple.Either play by their rules or don't play at all.
Breaking into the TTFF to even have a vote is impossible without their permission.
but it hasnt been attempted, if it was and it failed i would not be posting at all about this topic. i guess people prefer to choose the easy way out, forget about challenging bc its pointless, if that was the attitude, enslavement would still exist at the level it was in colonial times.
like Bent score while de link was down??
