Marcus Joseph, what's so special?

He's getting another run, I've only seen this man a few times and I haven't seen what is special about him.

Can someone give me a breakdown of this man and what he can do.. Harty mentioned the talent is there but what exactly is that talent?

"And, just as Police were coming to grips with having to share the points, they were left with nothing. Seconds after his goal, Jones won a free kick on the edge of the box and Marcus Joseph blasted the resulting free kick beyond the wall and straight at Foncette.

You don’t hold Joseph’s thunderbolts from that sort of range and Foncette’s block only teed up Central captain Darren Mitchell, who gleefully accepted the rebound."

There is always something dynamic about a left footed attacking midfielder.

Just think about our own talent pool current and previous.

Connection star acquisition Marcus Joseph eyes Pro League title, Golden Boot and Soca Warriors return.
ttproleague.com.


Trinidad and Tobago forward Marcus Joseph wants to keep his new club W Connection on the upward trajectory towards becoming Pro League champions in 2017—which means dethroning his former employers and three-time holders, Central FC.

“It’s pretty good so far [at Connection],” said the 26-year-old Point Fortin-born Joseph. “I’ve learned so much more under (Connection) coach Stuart Charles-Fevrier and it has opened up my mind a lot more to the game. He is very [patient] in teaching the game so you can understand it a lot more.”

Joseph, who split with serial champions Central earlier this year, joined Connection in pre-season after a lengthy absence from the game due to a fallout with the Couva Sharks.

But it didn’t take long under the guidance of the Connection coaching staff for the 2013/14 Golden Boot winner to shake off the rust. With arguably one the deadliest left foot in the PL, Joseph scored the winning items in Connection’s opening wins against St. Ann’s Rangers (1-0) and Point Fortin Civic (2-1).

The former Civic and Central star most recently scored his team’s second goal in a top-of-the-table 2-2 draw against second-placed North East Stars as Connection maintained their place at the Pro League summit, albeit only goal-difference.

“The ambition is to help Connection win the League,” said Joseph, who scored three times in six appearances for his new club.

“I want to do all that I can for the team. I want to also win most goals this season but the ambition of the team comes first. So if I think a teammate is in a better position to score I will offer the chance to that person like I did in the games I haven’t scored this season.

“It may not always be the best decision, but I am working on improving my decision making up front as well as my scoring. We are all working on improving as a team at Connection and with a little more gelling and improvement on our finishing in front of goal, I think we can go on to win the league.”

Connection (4W-1D-1L; 13 points) must next face Defence Force from 4pm on Saturday July 28 at the Ato Boldon Stadium when the Pro League resumes this coming weekend following a break that facilitated Trinidad and Tobago’s Men’s National Team preparations for today’s (July 26) international friendly against Ecuador, in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

The friendly is part of the Soca Warriors preparations for remaining FIFA World Cup 2018 Russia Qualifiers against Honduras (at home on Sep. 1), Panama (away on Sep. 5), Mexico (away on Oct. 6) and the United States (at home on Oct. 10).

Trinidad and Tobago are currently bottom of the CONCACAF Hex, and Joseph believes poor finishing and decision making in the final third are also negatively affecting the national team.

“We haven’t been combining well in the final third at the national level also,” said Joseph, whose last call-up with the Soca Warriors was in November 2016 under coach Stephen Hart when he was an unused substitute in a 3-1 loss against hosts Honduras in World Cup qualifying.

“At the national level -- from looking on -- I can see we have improved in terms of possession but a lot of times we are let down by the final pass or decision-making, or in finishing. We must improve in the final third if we are to improve our chances at qualifying [for the World Cup 2018].”

Trinidad and Tobago head coach, Dennis Lawrence, who took up the post in January, is yet to call on the Connection forward but Joseph is determined to earn his pick.

Lawrence is assisted by Joseph’s current club coach, Fevrier, Central FC assistant coach Stern John, and former Central coach Ross Russell.

“I will get there (on the national team) again,” Joseph said. “I am motivated at club level to do well and improve my play in front of goal and in scoring. Although I am not around the national team right now, I am supporting the team and the coaches to do well.

We have a lot of good players at the national level and the coach (Lawrence) knows what he is looking for. He is seeing what I am not, so it’s up to me to continue working harder at improving my game and [hopefully] I can be part of the team for the remaining World Cup qualifiers to help my country try and qualify (Russia 2018).”

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

Young Lobo. Nice goal. Gosh, but it is really stressful to see a professional game being playing in an open facility like this. Nothing wrong with the PUBLIC facility. Nobody at the game. Well, the reserves and the ball boys. >:( :(

Joseph looks to cement T&T spot.
By Joel Bailey (Newsday).


After helping W Connection win Pro League…

W CONNECTION striker Marcus Joseph is looking to cement a spot on the T&T team, after his goal-scoring exploits played a pivotal role in his club’s capture of the 2018 Pro League crown.

The 27-year-old Joseph netted 18 goals, including a hat-trick against North East Stars on Friday evening (the final day of the season), at the Ato Boldon Stadium, Couva.

Connection won the game 4-0 to finish the season with 37 points, one ahead of second-placed Central FC.

Nicknamed “Lobo”, Joseph played as a midfielder for the T&T teams, at the 2007 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in South Korea and the 2009 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Egypt.

Now, in his preferred role as a forward, Joseph is hopeful that his form this season will see figure prominently in T&T coach Dennis Lawrence’s plans for 2019.

“I would like to be always on the (national) team as a starting player,” said Joseph, during an interview after Friday’s match. “As you can see, I’m a goal-scorer. I hope the coach could see and help me to better myself and continue to work with me, for me to score goals.”

In 2019, T&T will be competing in the CONCACAF Gold Cup in the United States.

Joseph made his T&T debut away to Belize in March 2013. But his international record is not flattering – one goal in 16 appearances, and 14 of those matches were friendlies.

This year, he featured in the away matches against Guadeloupe on March 23 (T&T won 1-0) and Martinique two days later (0-0 draw), followed by a 1-0 loss at home to Panama on April 17.

He last donned the national colours in their 2-0 win against the United Arab Emirates on September 6 in Girona, Spain.

Joseph has played for a few clubs at the Pro League level, including Joe Public, TTEC, Point Fortin Civic and Central FC, before joining Connection on April 2017.

During the 2017 season, Joseph finished third on the scoring charts with eight goals, behind clubmate Neil Benjamin (12) and Rundell Winchester (nine), then with North East Stars.

In October, Joseph suffered a knee injury which forced him to miss almost a month of action.

He acknowledged, “The injury kept me back from scoring the amount of goals (that) I really wanted to score for the season, but I think I did my job.”

Asked how much goals he had in mind, Joseph replied, “about 30 to 34.”

With the season over, Joseph does not intend to rest on his laurels.

Concerning his plans for the off-season, he said, “I’ll be training every day. I always have to be putting in the work, staying focused and doing the right things. Hard work always pays.”

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

Gokulam Kerala sign Trinidad and Tobago striker Marcus Joseph

Gokulam Kerala sign Trinidad and Tobago striker Marcus Joseph
By Avik Roy (sportskeeda.com)


Gokulam Kerala have signed Trinidad and Tobago striker Marcus Joseph for the remainder of the season, according to sources. The player came on Tuesday morning and is expected to make his debut for the club against Churchill Brothers on Thursday.

Joseph was in sublime form for Trinidad and Tobago pro-league club W Connection FC, scoring 18 goals in the league to help the club win the title. He scored a hat-trick in the last match against North-East Stars to become the top scorer of the league.

The 27-year-old player started his career with United Petronin FC and moved to Joe Public FC in 2010. After spending two seasons there, he joined T and TEC Sports Club in 2012. He played at Point Fortin and Central FC before joining W Connection on 2017.

He is a prolific striker and has found the net almost regularly for all the clubs. He scored an astounding 31 goals in just 43 matches for Point Fortin. Besides the roles of a striker, he can also double up as a left winger.

Nicknamed ‘Lobo’, the player has participated in many age-group tournaments for his country. He played the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup in South Korea and the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Egypt.

He made his debut for his country on March 3, 2013 and has so far played 16 matches, scoring one goal. Trinidad and Tobago will play in CONCACAF Gold Cup this year in this year and Joseph intends to cement his spot in the national team.

In a recent interview, he had said, “I would like to be always on the (national) team as a starting player. As you can see, I’m a goal-scorer. I hope the coach could see and help me to better myself and continue to work with me, for me to score goals.”

This year, he has played regularly for his country including in the games against Guadeloupe, Martinique and Panama. He last match in national colours was against UAE on September 6, which Trinidad won 2-0.

An injury in October ruled him out for one month and harmed his chances in the race to become the top scorer. But after returning from injury, Joseph managed to show the same vein of form.

Gokulam have been struggling this season without a proper striker since they sold Henry Kisekka to Mohun Bagan before the start of the I-League. The Malabarians signed former Kerala Blasters man Antonio German. But German quit midway into the season after posting a cryptic message on his Instagram.

Gokulam then roped in Joel Sunday but the player failed to find the net for a single time. The Malabarians have now lost three consecutive matches. It needs to be seen whether Joseph can change their fortune.

If he makes his debut against Churchill, Joseph will face two of his countrymen Willis Plaza and Anthony Wolfe.

He might have had trials in Central America, or been recommended over there (my memory may be faulty). Ultimately I think he can achieve more, and I worry India won't give him much of a platform, but being paid week-in-week-out and getting international experience can't be a bad thing given what's happening in the Pro League.

Wasn’t reported, but Mr Joseph found the mark in 24 minutes, unfortunately they lost as Churchill brothers scored 3, with Willis Plaza contributing 2 of those.

Agreed, but given the Pro League right now maybe he'll stick it out longer like Plaza.
