Congrats Greg on the promotion to the MLS! Imagine we have a top in form player, playing consistently who made himself eligible and wants to play for T&T but gets blank right through. Yet still it have men on here does fight down players like DeLeon when when they don't make T&T their first choice. Greg should have an axe to grind and say don't come and call me now I signed a MLS contract! Canada will definitely consider him now.

i am 100% sure every one would agree with no questions ask, and it has me scratching my head in bewilderment. But then again itís trinidad football where bachanal and confusing takes the spot light every time. As a stubborn people we have plenty lick to get until we learn.

He still wonít be selected and if he is he will be discarded for some unknown reason that is not explained to the fans bc the dictator doesnít want a winning team

If he wanted a winning team, Hart would not have been fired and when the ttfa were rehiring they would have chosen a much better coach which they had the option to as fifa was paying for the coach and has paid Lawrenceís salary from the beginning

So ttfa doesnít control Lawrence, the dictator is acting on instructions

Breds, is Boxing Day. Instructions from whom? So,  are you saying DL taking instructions from someone in Concacaf-FIFA-Mexico. He is told when to lose, draw or win? So he is being bribed. You know he could go to jail for accepting bribes.

Lawrence is not paid privately by ttfa... heís paid by fifa, so why would he listen to anyone locally? Djw relays instructions bc name a company where someone is paid by a third party but follows orders of the the middle man?

Has jack gone to jail? Itís not bribery itís politics... go to jail for what exactly? Ttfa is not paying him and they have ordained that

Quick question.....


So what is the purpose of controlling Lawrence? How is this unknown entity benefiting from the demise of Trinidad football?

Best of Luck to Greg!
Think he has a good chance of coming in and producing right away

Orlando had a rough season last year and there's gonna be a lot of changes.
I believe the GK Coach has worked with Greg at Louisville so their chemistry may work in Greg's favor initially.

Hopefully the powers that be give him his deserved opportunity in any upcoming games ASAP.
We have 2 keepers that are in the national pool that have yet to get a cap. Try 'em out and let's see what's up!

Wish we had more video of their sessions as well.

I think Mr. Fuentes can possibly think of not using that much music in his posts n lets' get a real feel for the sessions with the sounds n atmosphere

Ranjitsingh aiming to be Orlando's #1 but still hopes for a T&T call-up.
By Inshan Mohammed.


At Mercer University, Gregory (Greg) Ranjitsingh finished his highlighted collegiate career as one of the top keepers in the country.

Then fresh out of University where he was a four-year starter, playing 81 matches with 363 saves and 27 clean sheets drew close attention. The Canadian-born goalkeeper was snapped up by Louisville City FC (Lou City) in 2015, a team that was about the make its dťbut in the United Soccer League (USL).

Ranjitsingh, went from being named on the All-Freshman Atlantic Sun team while at Mercer, to, winning two historic USL Cup titles for Louisville in 2017 and 2018 respectively, becoming the first ever back-to-back USL Cup winners. Too top that off, Louisville were Regular Season runners-up on 3 occasions (2015, 2016 & 2017). In-addition to being Kings Cup champions 4 times (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018) and Dirty River Derby champions twice (2017, 2018).

At Louisville, Ranjitsingh's first season saw him bench ridden biting his nails hoping for the day he'd be the number one choice for Lou City and, it came. His second season painted a different picture. A suspension to the clubís first choice goalkeeper Scott Goodwin, gave Greg the opportunity that he grabbed with both gloves. He took over the starting role for the USL club, opening with a string of five clean sheets and has remained in-goal ever since. He finished his 2016 performance that saw him post a 0.74 goals-against average and .759 save percentage.

The following season, Greg continued where he left off and was a brick wall in-goal for Louisville as he recorded 11 clean sheets and a 69.6 save percentage and claimed the Fanís Choice Save of the Playoffs. He finished his career with the USL team making 81 appearances in-goal and recorded 33 shutouts since signing in 2015.

With a couple of Man-of-the-Match performances, some penalties save and a USL Team of the Week selection caught the eye of Orlando City SC, which ultimately led to the T&T custodian being scooped up by the MLS club in December 2018.

Ironically, Greg made his home Slugger Field dťbut for Louisville against Orlando City. He came on as a second-half substitute that saw the home team defeating the MLS team 3-1 that left them shell shocked.

Ranjitsingh, who qualifies to play for Trinidad & Tobago through his father, can also represent Guyana, Portugal or Canada but chose to wear the red, black and white. He earned his first call-up for Soca Warriors under former head coach Stephen Hart back in August 2016. T&T had to face Guatemala at home and the United States (away) in their penultimate 2018 Concacaf World Cup Group C Semifinal Round qualifier.

Greg never made it off the beuch. T&T tied Guatemala 2-2 in their first game which was enough for them to booked a spot for the final stage Hexagonal (Hex). The remaining game against the US was literally meaningless as far as qualifying goes. Coach Hart stuck with his number one (Marvin Phillip) between the sticks only to see his side fall 4-0 to the CONCACAF powerhouse.

In November 2017, the Ontario-born keeper was again called up, this time by current coach Dennis Lawrence for a pair of exhibition matches against Grenada and Guyana. However, Greg was excused due to his clubís qualification for the United Soccer League Cup Finals. Ever since and 6 T&T games later, the player was never called-up again and is yet to earn a T&T cap.

To date, there are only three T&T players and one potential candidate (Ryan Telfer) playing in the MLS, Greg Ranjitsingh, Justin Hoyte (2019) and Kevin Molino.

Since 2016, Greg, still only 25, has made tremendous stride and consistent progress and with the aging Marvin Phillip (34), Adrian Foncette (30) and Jan-Michael Williams (34), Greg deservedly warrant a T&T call-up as one for the future, hopefully, coach Dennis Lawrence will make the call soon.

Soca Warriors Online (SWO) reached out to Greg and the player was all but happy to tell us about what has been happening lately in his career, from his T&T stint to his soon to be MLS exploits.

1. First, congratulations on your move to the MLS with Orlando City. How do you feel about the move, the environment, your new teammates, training and do you think you can hold down the number one spot being that it's a higher level to what you are use to?
GR: Iím very excited about the move. Iíve worked with James OíConnor, Daniel Byrd, and Thabane Sutu before in Louisville, and iím very happy to link back up with them in Orlando. Iím looking forward to this challenge and iím extremely confident in my abilities. I think the transition to playing in the MLS will be seamless and that I will continue to perform at a top level.

2. Greg, are you still interested in representing Trinidad and Tobago?
GR: Right now I would like to focus on my club football. If a national team call-up comes, I will deal with it accordingly.

3. How was your first stint with the T&T senior team? What impressed you the most, how did the players accepted you, how did you rate the other keepers and what did you feel could have been improved.
GR: I really enjoyed my first stint with the national team. It was a new experience for me and I thought the players accepted me in to the team and made me feel comfortable. My first call-up was with Marvin Phillips and Adrian Foncette, who I really enjoyed working with. I thought the level we maintained in training was great.

4. Do you still follow the T&T senior team? And has head coach Dennis Lawrence been in-touch with you?
GR: I always follow football, whether it is the national team, club football, or whatever. I have a love for this game and I stay fully aware of everything that is going on. I have not heard from Dennis Lawrence or any other T&T staff since right after the USA match when I thanked them for having me in camp.

5. Finally, SWO (socawarriors.net) and all of its supporters are hoping to see you suit up for T&T soon and would also like to congrat you with winning back-to-back USL Cup titles with Louisville City FC as well as your move to the MLS. Do you have any words for them?
GR: I want to thank all the supporters of the Soca Warriors. I see all the the nice things they write about me and I really appreciate the support they have shown. My wishes are for the federation to resolve their issues so that the players can proudly represent the country without any off the field distractions. The country and fans deserve top football and I know that is what the players want to provide.
