Barely any stability on that list, no wonder we barely make any improvement.

I was home in 76, and I swear, I can't remember Gutendorf being the national coach. I remember Edgar being the coach around 74, taking over from Verity. He coached the team in DR for the CAC games. they got the silver medal. and he was coach in 75 for the PanAm games in Mex. and the Olimpic team qualifiers for Montreal. And  he coached in 76 for the 78 WC, when we lost to the great Suriname team. So 77, 78, 79 is missing. Maybe Gutendorf coach around those 3 yrs. I am not sure.

But, yes, a long list for such a small nation. We  discarded coaches like styrofoam utensils. And that has a lot to do with TTFA not being able to have long term development for football. The lack of a consistent and regular sources of funding and/or bad administrations all adds up to our inconsistencies.

Wow! Is one thing to know something is/was bad. Is another thing to see just how bad and for how long.

Done to destabilize our football... hence why we cannot compete consistently with the elite teams..

Sabotage... Hart was needed for the long term but that wasn't liked so they install the dictator to get rid of him and our stability

Don't forget the overwhelming majority of the coaches on that list were hired and fired by the special advisor.

If Deeks' post is correct, BSC and SH had the longest consecutive tenures (3 years each) of any T&T coach ever.

'Survival Football', losses seen as failures rather than development exercises. New coach brought in to get us where we want to go, and then we repeat. I alluded to this many years ago, and was told i 'settling for mediocrity'. So how come after all this, we still mediocre, even with some of the best players, supporters, football minds and high level of experience in the region ? Maybe it to easy to "take we ball and go home" or is it 'we want ah new song every year, ole time thing was good, but we cyah hear the same tune againnn..oh gorm'.   ;D
