Under Warner, T&T has played in 2 under 17 men, one under 17 women, 1 senior and two under 20 world cups.
Dwight Yorke lived back Jack house for one year to go to St Augustine and Jack was influential in him going further in his career in England.
Jack took Marivn Lee and paid his entire hospital bill, send him aboard for medical help while the PNM government sat and did nothing.
Jack built 4 new stadium in T&T, despite who was the builder, he did it and T&T will benefit from them.
Concacaf was home in T&T...
Jack wanted to stop the white men in FIFA and put a brother and got the bad name for it. Michel Platini is worst than Blatter....
I could say more, but dont have the time right now.
Horner, for some strange reason i expected this response from you. i know that you would touch on things that is irrelevant instead on sticking to the topic @ hand.
my question to you was, "what did jack warner did for the development of football on these two islands ?", and all i could hear is how much jack took care of sick footballers, and he was trying to get rid of the whiteman and put a brother, and how much stadiums he build, and how much world cups we went, just a lot of dancing around the issue, when all i asked was, "what did AJ warner do for the development of football on these two islands?"
first off, if he had helped to instill a football union in the country, then he would not have had cause to pay anyone's medical bills, the same whiteman he was trying to get rid of was his partner in crime, and jack kept him in office for yrs, plus that eh have jack squat tuh do with T&T football, so i could care less!
as for the stadiums he build, mr, those stadiums were build by FIFA when we hosted the youth WC, after all, where yuh wanted them to play, in the savannah?? jack didn't build that with his own money. as for the rest of WC especially the 2006 WC, have you noticed that since we went to that WC, our football fell drastically? what did we gain by going to that WC?? tell me??!!
we came back from that tournament and instead of building on the momentum, it was mayhem! jack got over $40 mil USD and wanted to give the players 5,000 TTD a piece, $16,000 USD total is what he wanted to pay these men, out of $40 mil USD! how wicked and evil is that! plus jack never put ah dogone penny into football on the island, not one ground in one community did he build with that 40 million U.S.
all that money the TTFF made from TV rights, from the semi final round to the hex, plus the two games against bahrain, plus the local sponsors, plus the FIFA stipend that fifa gives to every team under their umbrella to function, where is it??
IMO that WC was a curse, bc we don't have no development programs on the island, so there no future! what was the reason for making a WC if all the basic are ignored, no development programs, no youth academies, no community football grounds, no nothing, not even the pro league is under the TTFF banner, so no kind of precedent is adhered too in term of standards for football development, and all this happened under jack warner's watch!
what's puzzling to me is, what's the attraction for jack warner in your eyes? the man was an absolute nightmare for T&T football!
it's amazing how this man was the vice president of FIFA, a man who's familiar with the dynamics of what it would take to be a proper footballing nation and he never stopped to think for ah nano second, "that in order for football to grow anywhere, youth development is ah must!" and in spite of this, the man totally ignored youth development here in T&T.
which could only lead me to one conclusion, the man's heart was never on football in the first place, but rather the benefits that football yields.
no body could convince me that jack warner cared anything about football, and i dare anyone to convince me that he did! and if he actually did, then it would be similar to the way an oil company "genuinely" caring for the environment more than the oil revenues.
jack was playing for prizes, and he made ah mint! and yeh, all that money he made from the WC, i would bet anything that the money that was spend in financing the UNC campaign, had WC 2006 endorsements written all over it.
yet again i will reiterate the question, what did jack waner did for the development of football in trinidad and tobago?? not how many WC appearance we made, or how many stadiums fifa build for a tournament, or how much hospital bills he paid, that was not his job, though it was ah kind gesture.
lets keep it simple," WHAT DID JACK WARNER DID FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF FOOTBALL IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO??"
