I met one of his relatives recently and heard he was a big thing in the 1970s.

Please educate me.

One of the best left wing/forward EVER produced in TT from mid 60s/70s. If there was a best X1 of TT, he will be on that squad as far as I am concerned. Played for St Benedict college in TT, NY Generals, Washington Darts, Miami Toros. I think(almost sure) he was NASL MVP one year. Was in the NASl same time with Delroy Scott, Skill Cole, Phillipe Vorbe,etc.

Short man will great burst of speed and acceleration. Kick well with both feet even though he is right footed. Excellent crosser of the ball from both wings. In my time, when Archie had the ball the crowd would stand because is beat and speed. Total exciting player. Was on the TT team that missed out in 1974 WC qualification in Haiti. From deep south, when that area use to produce players like mangoes on a tree in rainy season.

i agree with Deeks.

Archie was tears once he pick up. The Dilly, Archie, Cave trio, was one of the deadliest  in T&T football, pure excitement.

A LEGEND.

 I saw him do something I have'nt seen since.He over ran a pull stones pass on the goal line just inside the six yard box on the left side of the goal, back heel it onto an unrushing French Guiana player in the Oval and in his natural stride of going after the ball it came off his shine and into the goal.We won 4-1.

See Link for story on 73 team

Sometime in the late eighties I on a street in Miami. Ah Haitian gentleman hear my accent and ask if I from Trinidad. Football talk startup and the first thing the man ask me is about Warren Archibald.
Me...surprised..who? Yuh mean Russel latapy?
Him..shocked...who? No Warren Archibald!
Me..yeah? Never heard of him. (I became a National team ball peong only from the early eighties)

The man then proceeded to tell me all about the greatest footballer he has ever seen (Archibald)and how good our '73 team was and how Haitians love Archibald yadda, yadda, yadda......

That was the first time I had heard of him and the exploits of that team. Since come to find out that all the man was saying was true, and any Haitian I meet since then that into football knows Archibald. Apparently, the '73 team and Warren Archibald in particular seriously impressed in Haiti.

I think someone needs to start a poll/thread for who was T&T's greatest ever midfield general!?

Will be interesting to see where Latas would place in such a poll!  ;)

Pity we don't have video footage of all our mid-field generals in action to compare and so the younger ones can really see for themselves so we can get a fair result!

This is tough, but let me take a stab of an all-time T&T team.

                                        Shaka/Lincoln

T. Delabastide/Tesheira         S. Murren   Maraldo       Rondon/W. Phillips

   Yorke     Latapy/Deleon   Cummings/Franco   A. Corneal

                      S. David       W. Archilbald

I did not see Matthew Nunes and Squeaky Hinds.  I know many may not agree with Winston Phillips, but his long throw was a major weapon in Haiti.

 Hard X1 to pick.


Goal:  Lincoln/Shaka

RB: Brian Williams/Russel Texeira

Center Backs: Selwyn Murren, Bert Grell/Ray Moraldo

Left Back: Tyrone DeLabastide/Rondon/Faustin

Mid:  D Yorke, Deleon/Latapy, Gally, Gamaldo/Dennis Morgan

Alvin Corneal/Sammy,   Steve David/Stern John,    Archibald     

The reason I put Sammy with Alvin is because Archie can play both right and left side quite effectively.

From what I saw back then, Warren Archibald was very easily one of the greatest players to have represented T&T. Tell your Haitian partner if he knew or heard that after the 1973, Haiti World Cup qualifiers, the Haitian Government/football federation wanted to make Archibald a citizen to play for them in the World Cup Finals in, the then, West Germany. I will like to suggest that he gets his facts right.

Even if the Haitian gov't gave Archie citizenship, he could not play for them. The haitian team in 73 was one of the best to come out of the Carbbean. The Haitian gov't did sponsor their national team big time, but they abused them, especially when they did not win.

During that era several Haitians who had newborn babies named them after "Warren Archibald"

Deeks,

How could I forget Bert Grell?  Yes, I would put Bert ahead of Moraldo.  Yuh put Dennis Morgan in that company.  Sammy would definitely be on the squad too.  Coop's, leh we hear your team.

Archie's popularity with the people of Haiti began way before the 1974 Qualifications. Archie was Haiti's boogey man, back in 1968 (for WC 1970 WCQ) Archie drop a hattrick on Haiti in Haiti leading T&T to a  4-2 win.

This was real hard. I like Dennis because he was a real runner and tackled a lot. Had good first touch and skills. Remind me of Autis Wheatley a bit. I also saw him play some memorable games for POSFl and North in Geo. V park too.  I even had great difficulty to leave out meh pardner Coops who could have fall in the forward line(especially on the right side) with ease. Coops was NOT just a forward, but he used to come back and help the defence quite substantially. Coops with DF was deadly. I used to imagine what if they just added the national team back line(Texeira, Murren,Figaro/Moraldo, Winston Phillips) to the DF front five(Murrel, Len LaForest, Milton Archibald,Ron Laforest, Coops), how they would have played. If I was coach, I would have tried that.

        Trevor,i'm sorry about this one,nameing any national team is always difficult for me,i've seen,delt with and played with so many of our players that i can't imagine leaving out any of them,the guys you and Deeks mentioned are deserving of their places in the history of T&T Football,but when you look at guys like Andy Aleong,Pat Small,Steve Pierre,Jeff Gellineau,Pat Gomez,Bert Neptune,Tony Douglas,Kelvin Berassa,Leroy Spann etc etc ah mean it really hard,people who don't know or have never seen these guys will never know the kind of talent this country produced.
