Dennis Lawrence might be T&T coach soon.

Someone told me that Dennis Lawrence might be T&T coach soon. Possibly after the Gold Cup.

Whether he accepts or not, that's another question.

He turned down a chance to be T&T assistant once.

Hopefully, Sheldon Phillips can convince him.

I just heard this.

That would be nice if TT can get him but I dont believe he will accept he knows too much about TT its failings,you name it and we can show the world how not to do it.

@justcool, sometimes I wonder why coache even bothers to comment on anything on this forum. Always negative. Sometimes I give him the benefit of the doubt when he starts off but his negativity gets the better of him and back to square one. As he put it "same khaki pants". I understand and respect constructive critique but coache is too much sometimes.

Yeah negative until he talkin bout he lengthy resume and pointing out who he use to coach...all in all it takes all kinds, so we hadda accept him :(

Thomo doh get meh wrong he does annoy de hell outta me too with he negativity, but sometimes he does be unintentinally hilarious.

By de way, coache probably have an 'in' wid Lawerence as to why he would be de 'same khaki pants'?

It seems to me that COACHE has some coaching experience. It is also clear that being in a foreign country COACHE has that mentality that foreign exposure is better than the big fish in a small pond mentality.
The logical conclusion is that COACHE wants to be the National coach of Trinidad & Tobago.
 Nothing wrong with that kind of ambition, but he must channel his CV in the right direction.
 Having said that, understanding the DNA of a club or country is a necessary ingredient for success.
 If one is in doubt ask the Interim  Coach of Chelsea. Players and fans can make you or break you.

Same Khaki pants..not a negative comment...why take it as a negative? I said it before ..coaching in the English league is comparing apples to oranges when it comes to coaching a National team.
It would be even more difficult coaching Trinidad for many reasons. I'll name a few..lack of resources, player limitation, limited time to build a strong cohesive unit, leadership experience by the coach.
This coach is an assistant who is an active participant in another man's philosophy..does he fully understand Martinez's methods? I don't understand Martinez's methods..I never liked him, I always thought he was overrated and his relegation into the Championship Division is long overdue.
That methodology would not work with any National set up.
Who knows what is Dennis Lawrence's philosophy?

Based on what? Your dislike of the EPL?

Sounds like Wigan to me

This coach is an assistant who is an active participant in another man's philosophy..does he fully understand Martinez's methods? I don't understand Martinez's methods..I never liked him, I always thought he was overrated and his relegation into the Championship Division is long overdue.
So there is the nature of the problem. Guess what???? your opinion doesn't matter because as long as Lawrence is learning and gaining experience he is becoming a better coach.

That methodology would not work with any National set up.

You good yes. First to begin Dennis is not Martinez assistant, he runs the Developmental section of Wigan. Also I would hope he takes the best of Martinez philosophy  adds his own and grows from their. Saying that, Martinez teams play good football and is only a lack of true good players he has not done better. Hats off he won the FA Cup against the most expensive team in football. As professionals say "where is your FA Cup medal." How exactly is coaching in the EPL different from Holland, Spain, Mexico or Serbia Leagues, Versus National Teams?

If Dennis reading this thread. Most of us wish you well & are behind you. Good luck

The man has so much insight into the day to day operations of a typical coach in England, tremendously insightful! Someone from the association should be utilizing the information that these guys can share with local coaches...was really happy to hear him talk about the philosophy of Martinez and how much work these guys devote to preparing their teams. Spoke quite a bit about speed of play, high intensity sessions, operating outside of players comfort zones, emphasis on addressing physical characteristics of young players, importance of developing relationships with players, importance of managing them. It's quite an accomplishment what he has achieved being a Trini operating at that level! Anton should be hunting these guys down once they are back in Trini...and the man can still handle himself on the pitch as well. Big respect to Dennis!

Always liked Lawrence, on the field this man was pure heart and soul, I believe he would make a great coach, hopefully, he will return to T&T.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Dennis is a boss. He is in a daily environment, gaining experience at every level (which will serve him well). Do your thing Mr. Lawrence

Dennis Lawrence: Set to join Roberto Martinez's coaching team at Everton
By Pete O'Rourke (skysports).


Sky Sports understands Wigan coach Dennis Lawrence is poised to join Roberto Martinez's coaching staff at Everton.

Everton confirmed last week that Graeme Jones, Inaki Bergara, Kevin Reeves and Richard Evans had all followed Martinez from Wigan to Goodison Park.

Wigan were keen to keep hold of Lawrence with the former Trinidad & Tobago international establishing himself as a key member of the set-up at the DW Stadium.

New Wigan boss Owen Coyle was keen to include Lawrence in his plans for the side and hoped to keep him in his coaching staff.

However, Martinez has moved to lure Lawrence away from Wigan as he finalises his backroom team on Merseyside.

Lawrence is highly-rated by Martinez and he sees the former Wrexham and Swansea defender as one of the most innovative coaches around.

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.
