Lasana? Objective?  The man himself state that when reporting the news he has no obligation to be objective... and some of his sycophants happy with that.  The bias in his articles are at times less subtle than others, but yuh have to guard against it all the same.  For instance:

Quote
Phillips said he had to speak to Flanders before he could divulge how money was spent on the trip.

“I have to have a meeting with the manager to reconcile where and how the money was used so i can give you the breakdown later today,” said Phillips.

His use of the word "divulge" (meaning to reveal, disclose, share etc.) implies that Phillips already knows how the money was spent but need to speak with Flanders before he shares that publicly.  Like there is some kinda conspiracy.  Whereas, reading the actual comment from Phillips, it's clear from the context that he means he wasn't there himself and would have to find out from Flanders how money was spent on what.  Also, from the article one cannot tell whether it was only the women who did not get their per diem, or whether everybody was affected.  The truth is that no one has received the per diem because the TTFA still hasn't received all the money the MoS promised them.  Naturally what money was received was used to take care of necessities first (paying for rooms, meals, transportation etc.) rather than paying players their per diem.

Aside from that, there's an undercurrent to his reporting about Lincoln Phillips... as though he just on some kinda freeco thing.  In comments made in response to an earlier article he stated that there were other goalkeeping coaches besides Lincoln, and now making it a point to mention Lincoln's name among those being recommended for a bonus.  You'd swear Sheldon Phillips trying to look out fuh he pops... the way Lasana spinning it.  Reality is that LP wouldn't be on the staff if Waldrum didn't request for him to be there.  Yes him and Lincoln are good friends, but is not like Lincoln is some kinda scrub.  With his coaching acumen I'm sure he'd be an asset to any staff anywhere in the world, and it's no stretch to think that he had a hand in Kamika Forbes' outstanding performance throughout the tournament.

Yuh wukking over time dred.
Spot on Bakes...I read and interpreted it the same way

But for the bite, was Suarez returning to Liverpool after the WC?

I think he would have

Cyah say that I've heard or read anything to the contrary. Certainly, the sentiment at Anfield in June was that he was expected back.
I don't think so..i had read in a couple places that when he resigned the last contract certain things had to happen for him to stay at Liverpool.
He knew he woulda been sold on the cheap if he was 'stained'...hence the bite at the WC.

« on: October 05, 2014, 08:44:42 AM »
Mandela wasn't brutally murdered though, but ok if you didn't find it in poor taste. No scene (and I'm not being sarcastic).

... none of the original comments identified cause of death as a basis for opposition to the article. And, I don't find cause of death to be material regarding whether to publish the article or not. Emotionally, I get it ... but we're also dealing with information accessible to the public ... regarding public figures.

Moreover, the Express article properly treats the will in the context of Ms. Seetahal's murder, the present status of the investigation, and her public function at the time of her death. To significant degree, the article also reflects her thoughtfulness and humanity.




They could have done all that without detailing exactly who got what and how much. That was just crass. And information that's accessible to the public is different from say, taking the furth step and publishing said information in a widely circulated newspaper.
I with Toppa on this.
they coulda just phrased it in a way where she left all her worldly possessions to her loving nieces and nephews etc...and her coworkers etc...end of story
they just end up broadcasting info to kidnappers and bandits as to who to strike next in a couple weeks.

Lets hear Bakes comments.... :rotfl:

You are older than me, and not only that, but you are also a woman.  I have no interest in any kind of personal back and forth with you.  Don't let Tireasis chain you up into making an ass of yourself in the manner that he has become so proficient at doing.

I am interested in reading all opinions , its how I learn. Age and being a woman should not be part of such a dialogue, I fail to see your point by such a comment .
Tireasis  will not influence me , I value  opinions sent my way, it helps me see the other side.
I've always felt that a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of
conflicting points of view, he can entertain simultaneously on the same topic.

You seem to have issues , I hope you get help .


Socafighter that is trolling.

Bakes showed incredible restraint by not blazing yuh arse lol

so just cause the man have a different look at things he is a nut job?
you ever take the time to look at things without having a preconceived notion?

It generally saves time to filter out individuals known for having wholly biased and unreliable view points - now of course that doesn't mean they're wrong every time, but this individual routinely rejects science in favour of pro-corporate, pro-Russian interest party lines. The guy believes oil is not created from biological material and denies climate change - he cares not for the truth and has repeatedly shown intellectual dishonesty in his arguments.

where you does get your news from?

A number of sources, depending on the topic, preferring individuals with a background and experience that suggests they know what they're talking about. This sentence sounds bitchy but I promise it's not, just the only way to say it on the internet lol. I basically select sources based on whether I think they're 1) qualified (and thus have the knowledge and/or experience to be trustworthy on the matter) and 2) in proportion to their bias (bias is always present in the news, so if possible I prefer rigorous academic journals, but obviously they cannot be as current as news media, so I prefer organisations that have typically allowed their journalists editorial freedom such as The Guardian and The Independent).


The US government and their Middle east allies created ISIS same way they created the Muhajideen back in the 80's.
People bitching bout Obama not doing anything...fact is he can't, he just continuing the plan that Bush started lol

ISIS wasn't created in the same was as the Muhajideen - they received weapons directly from the US and UK during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan (SIRI have an excellent database of arms deals that catalogue these trades). ISIS (ironically, given the meaning of Mujahideen) has a stronger religious tradition imo - the Mujahideen were clearly formed of a resistance to foreign invasion and occupation, whilst ISIS was created from the beginning with the aim of forming an Islamic State in opposition to President Assad. Moreover, they were hostile with competing rebel factions from the start, something that appeared later for the Mujahideen.

On Obama, he's certainly the most conservative Republican president ever imo. Historials will look at his record on drone strikes with disdain I'm sure


its not coincidence that the US has a black president who's past is so murky and has Muslim ties just by his name...that is more than enough to keep the white population agitated.

"Has Muslim ties"? Oh you're a right-wing nut, I should of just not bothered, so impervious to logic you must be to believe all that bollocks. Lemme guess, he's a Kenyan Muslim subverting the Presidency?
you seriously pick apart everything I said word for word? lol...OK    :-\
Didn't think me saying ISIS and Muhajideen were "formed the same way" needed further explaining though since my main point there was the instigation/involvement of the US.

So yuh saying normal Christian people does name their child Barrack Hussein?...well if that is not Muslim ties? I ent know what to say  ;D

A right wing nut? yuh forget to add 'White' and 'Christian' to that statement lol
but then again I'm as Liberal as they come  ;)

carry on  :beermug:

Not sure if there's a 'Terry Fenwick' thread somewhere.


British Coaches Abroad: Terry Fenwick

Since playing for England at the World Cup, Terry Fenwick has managed in the Caribbean and Belgium. He talks about tropical life, amongst much more besides...


http://www.football365.com/f365-features/9454326/British-Coaches-Abroad-Terry-Fenwick

Terry Fenwick is manager of CS Visé in the Belgian third division. The 54-year-old played for Crystal Palace, QPR, and Tottenham, among others, and also appeared for England in the 1986 World Cup. He spent ten years managing in Trinidad before taking the Visé job. Here, he talks about Caribbean adventures, winning trophies - and why his dad chased a Sunderland scout down the street...

I've got used to moving around. I'm from Seaham Harbour in County Durham, and I left home when I was 15 and a half, to move to Crystal Palace. For the first six months, I was so homesick, you wouldn't believe it. I couldn't get home quick enough. Every weekend, when I had the chance, I was on the rattler from Kings Cross to Durham to get home. But looking back, it was the best thing I did.

When I was young, Liverpool and Leeds were the top teams, and they both wanted to sign me. The Liverpool scout, Tom Saunders, had me over for the weekend. I met Bill Shankly and a star-studded dressing room before a match against Manchester City - fantastic, what an experience! On the other hand, Leeds just stuck a contract in the post, and never spoke to me. I found that incredible. But that was nothing compared to my local team.

I'd always wanted to sign for Sunderland. One day, their scout turned up at our front door. Problem was, he was drunk. Drunk! So my father chased him down the street. By contrast, Malcolm Allison, the manager of Palace, jumped on a flight to Teesside Airport, and watched me play on a cold and wet Wednesday night in November. He was in his fedora, sheepskin coat, stood on the side of the pitch with his chairman, Ray Bloye. He turned a harmless schoolboy match into the FA Cup final. So my father insisted I sign for Palace.

It was Bobby Robson that got me the job in Trinidad. Newcastle United had a pre-season tour there in 2000, and he was asked to recommend a coach for one of the local clubs. To my surprise, he threw my name in the hat. I went for a week, had a look, and 14 years later I was still there.

My first club was San Juan Jabloteh - which really rolls off the tongue - in the Trinidad top division. It was a community club, good support, but it was full of rascals. All the rebels of football were playing there. The culture was unbelievable; it was so far from professionalism it was untrue. So I cleared them out, and handpicked the best under-17 players in the country.

If you mention Caribbean players to anyone in Europe, the first thing they say is: "They're lazy, they turn up late, they can't get themselves into gear" all that sort of stuff. So from day one, the discipline I installed was quite severe. We had a squad of 26 players, and more than half were losing 50 percent of their salary in fines every month. But the penny soon dropped. It started severe, but by the end it was just a threat in the background - something I didn't need to use.

In my first season, 2001, we came fifth out of ten teams. The management were saying: "My God, things must turn round - it must be better than this in the second year." In my second year we won the league - and we did it with a team full of youngsters that have gone on to win caps, play in World Cups, and do really good things. From there, most youngsters in the country wanted to join my operation at San Juan Jabloteh. It was a nice experience and a nice story - very difficult in the beginning, but very rewarding in the end.

In 2003, I moved back (to England) to manage Northampton. Why oh why? It didn't work out, and in March 2005 I came back to Trinidad, and took the San Juan job. In November 2005, the national team qualified for the World Cup, and the following six months were probably the best time I'd ever spent in Trini. The public reaction to qualification was enormous, and sponsors were coming from all over the Caribbean. The players - most from high-risk backgrounds -were rewarded with a million dollars.

Trinidad is volatile. The crime and violence can be horrendous. And they were literally putting these players - with a million dollars in their pockets - on the streets. They were fair game for anyone. Most of these kids today, the million dollars has gone. Some of them are scraping to get by. They couldn't handle themselves, they didn't have good management, and overnight they became playboys, superstars. I put a lot of blame not just on the football federation, but the government. A lot of things should have been managed a lot better. It's a sad story.

In 2005, the rivalry between the top two clubs (San Juan and W Connection) spilled over. In one game against them, their main guy (Brazilian midfielder Gefferson Goulart) scored a terrific goal against us. For whatever reason, he ran 80 yards - not towards his own bench, but to me in my technical area. He was shouting abuse at the only white guy in the stadium. As he came into the technical area, I stepped into him, and I elbowed him, basically. Knocked him to the floor.

If you back off, you're a laughing stock, and they've taken the p*ss out of you. I stood my ground. I shouldn't have done it, it wasn't great, but actually it helped my reputation in Trinidad. I stood my ground for my team, my players and myself. Six or eight months later, people realised that it wasn't the right thing to do, but they understood the reasons behind it. (Fenwick was banned for ten matches; Goulart was banned for two matches for offensive behaviour).

We won back to back titles with San Juan in 2007 and 2008. Then about 18 months ago I joined Central (another team in Trinidad's top division) and qualified for the Concacaf Champions League, and won the FA Cup and Toyota Cup. On the 17 June, I arrived in Belgium.

The move had been on the cards for around four to six months. The people behind the club (CS Visé) had bought players from me in Trinidad in the past, so it was a nice pat on the back: "We recognise the development you've done, and now we'd like you to do the same in Europe, while keeping your ties with the Caribbean and Central America."

We're in the third division, but I hope to get promotion this year (Vise have two wins out of four this season). We're professional, we train every day, and many of the clubs in the league are part-time. The people running the club have allowed me to bring in several talented young players, despite the healthy development programme at CS Vise. I've brought four players from Trinidad, and if it goes well, I might be back for one or two stunning young players in the January window.

I will open the door (to Europe) to good players from the Caribbean. I run my own youth development programme in Trinidad called the Football Factory with my partner Mike Smith, and we get close to one thousand people - aged 6 to 36 - training each week. Believe me, they can play. I keep my ties in Trinidad - my wife's from there, we've got property, and one or two business interests.

We get a winter break (in Belgium) so I'm sure the wife and I will head back to get some sun. The first five weeks we were in Belgium, it was blistering sunshine. I thought I was still in the Caribbean. Since then the weather has turned - surprise surprise! The wife can't believe it - all she brought was bikinis. But I'm enjoying it in Belgium. There are good players around me, good staff, and we're working hard together.

I do believe I'm a very good coach. I came through under a top-class coach in Terry Venables, and a top man-manager in Sir Bobby Robson. But now I've bolted several things on. And I think when you're in a country on your own, as I was in Trinidad, it makes you grow up very quick. I think it's helped my man-management - it's more than just coaching, it's more than just a couple of hours on the training ground, it's about getting into people's lives and backgrounds. Psychologically, youngsters from the Caribbean are brittle. There needs to be trust, friendship and a bond to get the best out of these guys.

I'm not sure whether I'd want to move back to English football. Of course if a big club came in, I'd be mad not to. But the pressure is so immense in the UK, and most managers don't deserve the treatment they get. Working in Trinidad, where there's not the same pressure, there is time to work with players, and develop my skill-set. I'd love to put that to use with Vise, get them up the leagues, and maybe even knock on the door of the first division.

I feel Rodgers soothing personality will really get the best out of Balotelli; plus, men like Sterling and Sturridge will make him feel welcomed in the dressing room.

Agreed.  Fantastic signing at £16m too... particularly so contrasted against the prices paid for Shane Long and offered for Fabio Borini (£14m each).  All that aside I've always loved him as a player and been an unflinching supporter on and off the pitch*.  He'll be just fine.

Bait taken in 3...2...1...
yes very good piece of business at that price.
I don't want no part of Eto.

clearly AIPAC are a major player as I've noted in the past, but Right-wing Christians are at teh forefront of promoting Israeli interest and I'm surprised this isn't common knowledge.

Toppa you are right and he is also right with the right-wing Christian thing.
He forgot to add the words 'white' and 'neo-con' though lol.
I don't think these people realize there is a difference between a Jew and a Christian, but they will defend Jews cause the Bible say so (talk bout pot calling kettle black when it comes to religious fanatism lol).
Bible make a reference to Iron Dome..guess what they name the missile defence system after? lol

Some people intent on seeing whatever prophecy fulfilled and cant wait for the coming of Christ steups.
Me personally ent care about this religious nonsense, Christ could come on a unicorn or in a spaceship...big deal.

If you follow the Republican media, they're still saying Obama not doing enough to help Israel lol
The Liberal media saying Israel over doing it.

When are the diehards going to be rewarded for their continued support through think and thin of National teams? eg. season passes, designated sections etc.

Why isn't SW.net and the Warrior Nation on the front burner as to getting accreditation as the "Official Supporters Club" and still be independent at the same time?

Why don't we have a recruitment drive for young administrative professionals, who would be willing to donate their time and expertise in areas like marketing and accounting?
