So with Patrice pulling out of Soca Monarch, this just make this so call competitive event even weaker this year. This is why I continue to not rate this Soca Monarch ting

Over the years, we see Big stars like Machel, Bunji, Kerwin, Destra, Ultimate Rejects pulling out this event and now add Patrice Roberts to the list.


Patrice is probably pulling out of ISM because she is not the best live performer and needs to improve that aspect of career as an artist. I always find that she sounds like she is running out of breath most times when she performs live.

Bunji pulled out of ISM because he couldn't handled being beaten by Machel after MM reentered ISM in 2011.

Machel eventually pulled out of ISM after he proved the point between 2011 and 2015 that he is the undisputed Soca King and so has now decided again to concentrate on taking Soca to the global market.

Destra always beats herself in ISM even when she clearly has the most popular song like when she had "Lucy" and don't seem to be able to handle the competition environment so she finally accepted that fact and stopped competing.

UR are not into competitions and said so when they were formed after MX Prime joined them, its their policy. They almost didn't enter their song into the road march competition last year but finally gave in to public pressure.

Kerwin seems to be afraid of competing and not winning which is why Voice who used to jointly write songs with Kerwin has now surpassed Kerwin in ISM titles. Kerwin seems to have the same mindset as Kes that winning one Soca Monarch title is good enough for him as he does not like the negative environment generated between artists during ISM competitions.

Can you post a link officially confirming that the ISM is on this year as I am yet to hear this news?

Update: Ok, I just heard the official announcement from Peter Scoon the CEO of ISM on i95.5 FM that 2018 Soca Monarch is on.

well its expected that each artiste will have his or her own career reason for not competing, however with ore top artistes not competing the competition becomes weaker and weaker every year therefore less significant each year

Football / Cyrille Regis, former West Brom and England striker, dies aged 59

Cyrille Regis, former West Brom and England striker, dies aged 59
Press Association (theguardian.com)


The former West Bromwich Albion and England striker Cyrille Regis has died aged 59, the Professional Footballers’ Association has announced.

Regis, who died following a cardiac arrest on Sunday, won five caps for England between 1982 and 1987, having been one of the stars of the Baggies team between 1977 and 1984. He scored 112 goals in 297 appearances for Albion before moving on to Coventry, winning the FA Cup with the Sky Blues in 1987. He was appointed an MBE in 2008.

The Professional Footballers’ Association announced the news on Monday morning and wrote in a tweet from its official account: “A true gentleman and legend, he will be deeply missed. Our sympathies to his family and friends.”

The Hawthorns club also released a statement on its website, which read: “West Bromwich Albion are today deeply saddened and shocked to confirm that one of our greatest players, Cyrille Regis, has passed away.. He was the iconic figurehead of the club’s legendary ‘Three Degrees’ team of the late 1970s, was taken ill late last night. Cyrille lit up the Hawthorns with his thrilling brand of forward play.

“He also became one of the great symbols of the fight against racism in Britain as a pioneer for black footballers across this nation and beyond. Cyrille is survived by two children Robert and Michelle and three grandchildren Jayda, Renée and Riley. The club will be making further announcements about its plans to celebrate the life of one of Albion’s all-time greats in due course.”

His widow, Julia, said: “Cyrille and I were soulmates, he was the perfect man for me and we had a wonderful life together. He was a beautiful man and a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle.

“Losing him has turned my whole world upside down. It is a void that will never be filled. I have been moved by the many messages of support and condolences I have received and the kind things people have said about Cyrille as a person and a professional.

“He came into football the hard way and never lost his passion for the game. He was a role model for so many because he always treated everyone he met with kindness and respect.”

Regis was born in French Guiana in February 1958 but moved to London with his family at the age of five. He did not come through the youth ranks with a professional club and was instead spotted playing Sunday morning football by the chairman of the Surrey non-league club Molesey.

West Brom signed him for £5,000 in May 1977 and he made a spectacular start, scoring twice in a League Cup tie against Rotherham in September of that year. Along with Laurie Cunningham and Brendon Batson, who joined Albion in 1978, the trio of black players were nicknamed “The Three Degrees”.

He was voted the PFA Young Player of the Year for 1978. Regis represented England at under-21 level and won his first senior cap in February 1982 against Northern Ireland. His final cap came against Turkey in October 1987.

After his stint at Coventry he also played for Aston Villa, Wolves, Wycombe and Chester before ending his playing career in 1996. He worked as an agent for the Stellar Group after his retirement from the game, and the agency’s chief executive, Jonathan Barnett, released a statement on Monday morning.

“Cyrille was a wonderful person to work with and his death has left everyone in the company and the players he represented with a great sense of sadness,” Barnett said. “Our deepest condolences go out to Julia and all of Cyrille’s family and close friends. He was a role model to his young clients and a genuinely lovely man.”

The statement from Stellar also praised Regis for his “passion, determination and integrity, especially in the way he would champion the careers of up and coming players”.

Under 20 Women stay focused ahead of Concacaf opener with Haiti.
TTFA Media.


This country’s Under 20 Women’s team will continue their preparations for the upcoming Concacaf Under 20 Women’s championship with a training session at the Ato Boldon Stadium on Monday evening as they gear towards Thursday’s opening encounter with Haiti at 6:30pm in Couva.

Head Coach Jamaal Shabazz continues to pay close attention to his troops in what is a crucial period before the opening battle. The team took part in a scrimmage encounter on Saturday against a select-combined team at the Ato Boldon with the likes of Tasha St Louis, Janelle Francois and former men;s team players Stern John, Dennis Lawrence, Clayton Ince, Cornell Glen and Densill Theobald among others also lacing up to give the Under 20 Women a decent work out on the evening.

“It’s a critical period for us with the opening game in less than a week,” Shabazz told TTFA Media. “The players are in good spirits and also very focused going into the opening match. What is important is that we keep them mentally ready and also ensure that their bodies are in the right condition after what has been a lengthy training period in which they have given their all,” Shabazz added.

Haiti meantime, have been here since Wednesday and have had sessions at the Hasely Crawford Stadium training pitch and St Anthony’s College ground. Prior to arriving in Port of Spain, their team was engaged in a live-in training camp at the their FIFA Goal Centre in Haiti. They arrived here with seventeen players and are expected to be joined by France-based trio Nérilia Mondesir, Sherly Jeudy and Danielle Dani Étienne.’

In the previous Caribbean phase, Haiti lost to Jamaica 1-0 but defeated St Kitts/Nevis 12-0 with Mondesir scoring six goals,  and Dominican Republic 4-1 to finish second in the group behind the Jamaicans who are in Group B of the Concacaf championship.

T&T’s head coach Shabazz is insisting to his players that the opening game is critical and that Haiti cannot be underestimated. T&T forward Dennecia Prince is also banking on the hosts to come good on Thursday.

“I am confident because we have worked extremely hard in the preparations. We did not have a lot of international match practice but we made up for it with the way in which we went about the training and we have a strong desire to excel in this competition,” Prince told TTFA Media.

“The main thing for us is believing and not giving up at any point even if we are down. If we are behind we know that we have to level the score and keep fighting until the teams come off the field. This is a great opportunity for us as female players and if we can do well and qualify it will continue to improve the state of women’s football in my country,” Prince added.

Tickets for the Group phase matches cost $40 and will be available at all NLCB Lotto Locations starting on Monday. Group A matches begin at 4pm on Thursday with Canada facing Costa Rica followed by the T&T versus Haiti clash at 6:30pm. Group B action kicks off on Friday with Mexico meeting Jamaica from 4pm and United States facing Nicaragua from 6:30pm. The top two teams from each group advances to the semi-finals and the two finalists plus the winner of the third place playoff will qualify for the 2018 FIFA Under 20 Women’s World Cup.
