Title: The David Nakhid Thread

Nakhid: Beenhakker one of the best.
By: Kern De Freitas.


Former Trinidad and Tobago football captain and assistant national coach David Nakhid has described newly-appointed T&T head coach Leo Beenhakker as one of the best he has ever encountered.
Nakhid, who played under the Dutch national at Swiss club Grasshoppers, said Beenhakker's experience can be an advantage to the T&T Warriors, who are bottom of the six-team CONCACAF standings in final round qualification for the 2006 World Cup.

"He's one of the greatest coaches, probably ever," Nakhid said of 62-year-old Beenhakker, "and we have to try and benefit from his experience."

Asked whether he felt the new coach will produce better results, Nakhid was optimistic that the team could improve under Beenhakker's stewardship, saying it would augur well for the future, adding: "This is football-time will tell."

Nakhid also felt the national team needed to improve, not just in the troublesome midfield, but in a holistic way, adding that the marked improvement in their performance against Costa Rica on Wednesday directly resulted from the fact that former coach Bertille St Clair had more time to work with them leading up to the game than the previous two final round matches.

Asked how he felt about working with former teammate Russell Latapy, who has also been named as an assistant coach, Nakhid replied: "It's business as usual. Everyone has to be a professional and work for the good of the team."

Nakhid was optimistic of T&T's chances of qualifying for the World Cup finals in Germany next year.

"Well, of course we need to do well against Panama, we need to get three points. We still have a good chance (to qualify). If I didn't think we did, I wouldn't have stayed. I would have offered my resignation."

New coach same problem. Do not get me wrong I have nothing against the man - YET - but can someone please tell me what is so special about David Nakhid that both BSC and Beehakker must put this guy on the field. I like the idea of Nakhid being an assistant coach, I am glad that he will be there to pass his knowledge and experience on to the team, but once again I must remind people that this is not the over 40 world cup.

I know that not only Nakhid might want to prove his critics wrong but I think that this lack of trust and confidence in the youths is what is bringing, not only this team down but the country on a whole. Give the new blood a chance. It was the new blood that drew the cricket game in Guyana. Nakhid needs to coach the younger ones and have them develop the skills that he has, that makes BSC and Beenhakker believe that he ought to be both assistant coach and player.

I believe that the coach isn't the only one responsible for what I think is a questionable move in player selection. Nakhid is responsible for his own decisions. Nakhid can let the coach know that he thinks that at his age he might be better off in a coaching position. Unfortunately he (Nakhid) doesn't believe this. He might have to take a page out of Latapy's book. Latapy turned down the offer to return as a player and reportedly picked up the one as an assistant coach. Now, that is brains and class.

Well we shall see how long Latas will remain as assistant coach before Leo drops him like he did with Nakhid.  I feel his appointment was just a ploy by the TTFF to get his tail down to Trinidad again.  After all shouldn't the coach himself pick who he wants as his assistants, not the TTFF?  Once Latas reach home and spends time with the team again, he might have a change of heart and decide to play again.  At least this is probably what Jack and them are hoping.  If not Leo will probably ask him to step aside anyway.

I asked over and over where is the long term plan and commitment to the growth and development of football in this country?

Everyworld cup campaign, we operate in a sense of panic, and urgency. There seems to be no systematic planning  to bring solid goals to fuition.

Why are we sensing that experienced players past their best years are the way to go? Where is the blend of  experience and youth? where are our Roonies?

Nahkid may be the man to communicate ideas on the field.

He is very witty, bright articulate and he have a degree just like Shaka.

P.S........for those who dont know he can speak 4 or more languages fluently. This is a reason maybe he can be used as well.

But Leo talking English good so I doe think that may be a problem, he just might not understand slang. But You need a older head like Nahkid to keep the young boys in check.

Post by: dwn on April 07, 2005, 09:09:01 PM
I honestly dont think Beenhakker is against giving new blood a chance. Based on the post about Beenhakker's meeting with the PFL coaches it appears that the man, especially with his experience, is not as closed minded as that.

His move to make Nakhid a player may be for 2 reasons:

1. Based on the tapes he saw of the past few games, the performances were mediocre enough for him to think that Nakhid may be able to make an impact in the SHORT TERM while he gets to know new players ...

2. He wants to bring in his own assistants who he is accostumed working with and who can implement his plan - so there was not room for Nakhid as an assistant ...
Title: Re: Do we really need Nakhid as a Player?
Post by: dcs on April 07, 2005, 09:45:43 PM

Don't forget Beenhakker was Nahkid's coach at Grasshoppers.

He has to implement something in the very short term and he knows what he is getting with Nahkid...the previous coach had him on the team too so he might be inclined to have him available.

I doh think Latapy seeing Piarco airport anytime soon.


And I think we jumping the gun too fast.  Allyuh know Leo team before he even choose it or wha?  Is psychic on dis site!   :D
The man didn't even look at all the players yet and allyuh bawling bout old age.  I feel is cuz it have nuttin else going on now to talk about.  Somebody tell Bertille to go have an exclusive interview with Andre "pussy cat" Baptiste to keep we occupied in the mean time.   ;D

This Coach is in a funny position,at the moment he has to work with what's given to him,he don't know anyone besides Nakid that's why he is inclined to go for Nakid,i agree with those who said may be is he that ask for Bsc to be his assistant Coach because Bertil has knowledge of the players.Don't expect much changes,but as i said i would go for youth and more home based.

What problem are we trying to solve?  The immediate need for 3 points? Player development? Giving new(younger) players a chance to prove them selves?

If we can define Mr Beenhaker's mandate we might gain more insight into his decision making.

Good. So we have established that his job is to earn sufficient points to qualify.  To earn results with little to no preparation time (he's is not the only one in this boat), he will look to players who:


Once he's selected the players he should put them in a position to be successful as a unit. Given his experience in the professional ranks, one would expect that he knows well enough to do the job required and get as maximize the potential of the team. 

He can only control the preparation to the extent he has the players at his disposal. When the game starts its the players who have to perform.

well to be devil's advocate:

it's not as if all them men whose ages are listed are ever getting picked for the squad simultaneously anyway.  They are all in the mix yes, but there are also a lot of ppl in their mid 20s and younger in the mix: jones, glen, theobald, smith, rojas, sealy, sam, edwards, d. king, tiger, nigel pierre etc.

Many countries with veteran teams have had success on the world stage: Croatia in 98, Czech Republic last year, Portugal from 1998 to last year, as well as the germans who basically had the same nucleus for three world cups.

also it's not a strict either or scenario where picking a set of veterans for the next 7 games going to necessarily put us in a hole 4 years from now.  I mean if the admin get their acts together the current U-23s and U-20s should have sufficient exposure over the next few years anyway regardless of what come with the senior team in the next few months.

don't mean to be like alberta trini in responding to my own comment, but I forgot to add my two cents to the actual question posed.

No, I don't think Nakhid is useful as a player.  Not because he old, but because I see him in digicel and I was extremely unimpressed.  just my opinion.  maybe leo knows something I don't know.  He is the big shot coach.
Title: Re: Do we really need Nakhid as a Player?
Post by: arrow on April 08, 2005, 02:16:48 PM
Leo hasn't seen him play in over 10 years.  Who says he's going to pick Nakhid on the final world cup squad anyway?  The way I read it he basically said I want Nakhid around the team but I don't want him as my assistant coach, so let's see what he can offer as a player instead.  His place is by no means guaranteed.  Nakhid hasn't even decided if he wants to play yet.
Title: Re: Do we really need Nakhid as a Player?

Yes, Nakid has decided that he wants to play, that is why he suit up and play in some games already.

jEEZAM  Sometimes ones thinking may change, maybe modified according to the level of responses. So if I choose to respond tuh meh damn post so be it.

As for this 'post' It would seem to me that a blend of youth, experience would suffice. The real test is in the level of physcial fitness, endurance and conditioning of the athletes.

A player is only as good as the overall team. Given the experience and the fact that most of these playesr have battled before for this country, I would think they should be hungry to once more have the opportunity to see Trinidad qualify for the World Cup and from a personal level, close out their careers with a World Cup appearance.

So do we need these players ? Of course if they have proven worth, ccoud still contribute, could still be a factor in the outcome of the game, then why not?

Beenhaaker wants his peeps working with him. Calling on nakhid to play is his way of saying thanks but no thanks. But whatever just so long as BSC has returned to his former job and has stopped drawing money under false pretenses.

If the goal is to qualify, then we need the older heads, whether they all play or all play at the same time on the field is for the coach to decide... An overage Latas is still better than anyone I have seen who has tried to fulfill his role. I watched the T&T vs Crica from the gold cup this morning and BSC pattern of subs he has used is really crazy... Imagine with 5 mins left in the game we up 1-0 and he take of Latas and ring on Rahim and take off eve and bring on the dribble master who never score a goal at senior level and is not known for his defensive skills Evans Wise..  Even the commentator had to comment on what is BSC thinking.. Anyway, whilst Nahkid is way past his prime.. If we are leading 1-0 in a wcq game with 5 mins left, I would probably prefer Nahkid with his experience and a newbie who may be a better player but does not have the exeperience... ;D

Leo says T&T a little closer to being ready for Panama.
By: Shaun Fuentes.
[/color]

National football coach Leo Beenhakker says he was not particularly happy with the wayward finishing in Wednesday’s 4-0 defeat of Bermuda but has hinted that he is well aware of how the “Warriors” will approach their June 4 World Cup qualifier against Panama.
Less than two weeks before the big clash at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, T&T warmed up with a comfortable 4-0 win over the visiting Bermudans and will get a second chance to do more damage to the inexperienced side and hopefully sharpen up further when they clash again at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium from 6pm on Friday.
Speaking after the match in which he attained his first win since taking over as coach, Beenhakker was not particularly pleased.
“Well no I was not particularly pleased but we got a win and this match gives us some guarantees for the matches against Panama and Mexico. We worked hard in the camp and you can see we are getting better little by little. It was a useful match for us especially in relation to last week’s match against Lima. We tried to play more in front and get more time in the box. We had several good chances and even though we didn’t make use of them, that could happen now, it’s not a problem.
“This is just a game to take us one step ahead,” Beenhakker said, adding that he was not concerned over the low rating of the Bermudans.
“We try to play with more possession and play football from  behind. We also try to use every player and get on front based on football and not with the long ball coming back as soon as you play it down there. We are trying to understand each other very well.”
When asked whether he has put a team together for the match against Panama by a local reporter, Beenhakker replied without giving any details of the actual squad.
“Yes I know how we are going to play on the 4th. I still have more than a week to go and I will work with all of the players. I will build a team that will be ready to play every match because we have the Gold Cup so the focus is not just the Panama game but right now you can say that the most important game is the Panama one. I know more or less all the overseas players. I had my first impression with Brent Sancho, Marvin Andrews and Kelvin Jack today (in training). I know them and that’s  a big advantage.
"This Friday we will give an opportunity to the other players in the camp in Friday’s game and then we start our final preparation on Monday. From my side it’s clear how we have to play Panama and with what team we have to do that.”
Finally asked about whether he now has confidence in the team’s chances following the win on Wednesday, Beenhakker said: “ I had confidence from the first day here because if I didn’t then I would not come over here. Little by little we are doing better. We still have a long way to go before we play at the level of Milan or Liverpool or I don’t know who but everyday you see some players picking up some details and playing better individually and then we are getting it better as a team. And if it’s enough to beat Panama and Mexico, I don’t know but at least we are playing more like a team now.”
Leo Beenhakker to coach local coaches.
By: Walter Alibey - Newsday.
[/color]

Local football coaching is to benefit from seminars to be conducted by national coach Leo Beenhakker. According to Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation president Oliver Camps on Wednesday, these seminars have been planned with the hope of Dutch coaching staff transferring their knowledge, both practical and theoretical, to local coaches. The long-serving football administrator told Newsday that the seminars would be organised and arranged by technical director Lincoln Phillips. But he said, however, such seminars could not be carried out at this point in time, and would have to wait until after the World Cup qualifying campaign.
The local football boss made it clear that Beenhakker could not and must not be distracted by anything apart from the World Cup qualifying series. Camps said,  “Right now I want the coach to focus only on taking this country to the World Cup and nothing else.” He said the Dutch coach would have a lot more time when this country has qualified for the World Cup finals in Germany next year. Trinidad and Tobago are bottom of the six-team chart with just one point from two matches. But the forthcoming round-three qualifier against Panama, June 4 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium is expected to not only begin their climb up the standings, but instil some hope back into the hearts of local fans, with a string of victories. Camps said the seminars would be opened to all local coaches so they could have a chance to improve themselves.
Mathematically Trinidad and Tobago could move into third position with a victory over the Panamanians, but they would need the assistance of some of the other qualifying teams. For instance, a win for the Warriors would take them to four points, while the results of the other games could help them maintain that position going into the fourth round. The call for the coaching seminars came after plans to utilise ex-national captains Russell Latapy and David Nakhid as player/coach with the current squad has not materialised. But Beenhakker requested and brought his own assistants, after Lebanese-based Nakhid accepted the invitation, but Latapy declined, and has since re-signed as player/coach at Scottish club Falkirk, who won promotion to the Premier Division.
News from the 26th of May 2005.
David Nakhid to serve as ‘Warriors’ scout.
By: Shaun Fuentes.


David Nakhid has been appointed as a National Senior Team scout to serve from within the Technical Staff assigned to work under Team head coach Leo Beenhakker with immediate effect.
The appointment was agreed upon after Beenhakker made the offer to Nakhid on Tuesday and a meeting will be held with TTFF Special Advisor Jack Warner on Friday to finalize the terms and conditions of the new position.
As a result of this, Nakhid, a former National Captain, is no longer available to the current “Warriors” outfit as a player.
The 41-year-old midfielder said he had no qualms over having to give up his role as a player and is ready to scrutinize T&T’s upcoming opponents.
“The coach  spoke to me and he explained the situation. He did make the offer open to me saying that he would like me to be a scout for the team but he also said he still felt I could make a contribution as a player and the choice was up to me,” Nakhid told TTFF Media.
“I thought about it and it was a hard one to decide on, particularly when you know you can do it as a player but then up came the chance to make a valid contribution to the effort to get to the World Cup. It also means that I could continue my football in Lebanon and still be involved with the national team which is something I cannot turn my back on.
“I think as more time passes on, the team is becoming a stronger unit and all of the guys realize how important it is for them to make an honest and worthwhile contribution and for me, this new position will give me an opportunity to stay involved and be part of what will be history created by us when the team gets to the next World Cup,” Nakhid added.
 He is expected to take up his first assignment on June 4, the same day T&T takes on Panama at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.
Beenhakker commented on the latest development regarding Nakhid.
“It is something that we discussed and I respect his decision. I was the one who offered him a chance to make a contribution as a player and now something different has come up whereby I felt David could make a significant contribution and we have agreed upon this,” Beenhakker said.
Meantime, Beenhakker will have a second outing against Bermuda when they clash with the “Warriors” in a second friendly at the Manny Ramjohn Stadium from 6pm this Friday. The match will be the first game of a double header with the Pro Bowl Final playing off between CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh and Vibe CT 105 W Connection.
Birchall, Edwards sparkle in Warriors win.
By: Nigel Simon.
[/color]

English-born midfielder Christopher Birchall and Carlos Edward both had outstanding performances as T&T warmed up for its June 4 Concacaf World Cup Qualifier against Panama with a 4-0 shut-out of Bermuda at the Hasely Crawford Stadium, Mucurapo on Wednesday night.
In a match which was completely dominated by the Leo Beenhakker-coached line-up, Birchall, Edwards and to a lesser extent, Kenwyne Jones, Aurtis Whitley and defensive duo Dennis Lawrence and Anton Pierre all staked claims for a spot on Beenhakker’s 18-man roster for the qualifier against the Panamanians.
However, the same cannot be said of Coventry City striker, Stern John, who apart from his 65th minute goal, had a nightmarish performance in front of the Bermudans goal.
John’s dilemma began as early as the 13th minute when he failed to connect with a pin-point low right sided cross by Edwards six yards out from goal, after the latter had worked a clever one-two with Birchall down the right flank.
One minute later, the improving Leslie Fitzpatrick collected a short corner from Birchall, and with acres of space in front of him, he unleashed a powerful volley at goal which Bermuda’s goalkeeper Nigel Burgess went full stretch to his left to pluck out of the air.
Edwards again picked out John with a right sided centre after robbing a defender of the ball, in the 24th minute but with ‘keeper Burgess and the goal at his mercy, John somehow managed to clip the ball over the bar.
Six minutes later, John blasted over bar from a Jones feed inside the 18-yard box.
With all the chances falling to John, the question was whether T&T would break the deadlock before the half, which they eventually got through an own goal.
The go-ahead item came in the 33rd minute when defender Kentoine Jennings turned the ball into his own net past Burgess, when he attempted to cut out another centre, which was intended for John.
At the other end of the field, T&T goalkeeper and team captain Clayton Ince was almost a spectator for the night and was mostly called into action by his own defenders.
Two minutes into the second-half, Jones scored his first goal for the T&T senior team and the second of the match, when he ran onto a through ball from Edwards, ten yards into the Bermuda half, held off a weak challenge from defender Stevie Astwood and slotted the ball past Burgess on his near post.
John came close to ending his drought in the 50th minute, but his goalward chip was cleared off the line.
Despite his own poor form, the Coventry striker had a hand in his team’s third goal as he headed down a right sided corner from Birchall to the feet of Dennis Lawrence, which left the lanky defender with the easy task of dragging the ball over the line.
After squandering an open chance in the 58th minute when he just had to pick his spot with keeper Burgess stranded, John ended his drought with a 65th minute item.
He ran onto a through ball from Birchall and chipped the ball into the bottom left hand corner of the goal past the advancing Burgess to the delight of the 3,000 spectators on hand.
Edwards, John, Birchall and second-half substitutes Brent Rahim and Gary Glasgow all had chances to add to their team’s tally, but failed to beat substitute goalkeeper Daniel Johnson.
Both teams will meet again Friday at 6 pm in the first match of double-header at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium, Marabella. In the feature match from 8.15 pm defending champions of the T&T Professional Football League Pro Bowl, Vibe CT 105 W Connection will put its title on the line against CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh.

T&T:

Clayton Ince (capt); Anton Pierre, Dennis Lawrence, David Atiba Charles, Marlon Rojas (Glenton Wolfe 46th); Leslie Fitzpatrick (Densill Theobald 46th), Carlos Edwards, Christopher Birchall, Aurtis Whitley (Brent Rahim 80th); Kenwyne Jones (Gary Glasgow 62nd), Stern John.

Judging from them reports by Patriot and Touches, it seems Jason Scotland might save the day for T&T, because Stern John and Cornell Glen cool down a bit and then Jones is not a all out striker. Scotland and Hector we need you.

The good thing is, Dwarika and Whitley can play forward if needed and, Whitely is presently in-form.

Sealy need some time, he is good no doubt, but not ready as yet, I saw him yesterday, or maybe its the team he's playing for.

Still feel Glen can stur things up at half time, I would prefer him over Stern at the moment.. a good off the bench sub.

What happen to Stern John man ? this guy was my hero at one time. ?

Post by: Hyperhot J on June 29, 2005, 11:53:25 AM
... and where in the world his he? Last I heard was that Beener man said Nakhid was going to be the official spy/scout for the Warriors. Is Nakhid going to be watching all the other Gold Cup games e.g when Panama plays Colombia etc.? As well was he scouting the other World Cup qualifying teams? At least he could have stayed in the comfort of his home, (in Lebanon??) and see how great Mexico played in the Confederation's Cup and know that they are definitely the ones to beat in the Gold Cup.

If anyone knows about any ACTIVE role Nakhid is playing, we'd like to hear from you.

David Nakhid still in the thick of things.
By Ian Prescott (Express).


David Nakhid somehow has a penchant for making everything he does seem the most important thing in the world. An astute passer of the ball in his heyday, Nakhid, 41, is now doing his most productive work, not from the midfield where he served the national team faithfully for many years, but in the stands as a scout.
Even as the Warriors go through their final paces before  entering a hostile environment in San Jose against Costa Rica, Nakhid is  in Panama. His job there is to look  at the Panamanians who will be T&T's next World Cup opponents on October 8 in Panama City. Nakhid has to  pick out Panama's weakness and possibly procure a dvd tape of their match against Costa Rica.  His work might well be crucial to helping T&T's Dutch national coach Leo Beenhakker formulate a plan for beating the Panamanians.
"When Trinidad and Tobago had their home game against Panama  earlier this year, I was in Guatemala watching our next opponents, Mexico. Against Mexico, I was in Panama watching the United States, who we had to play next," Nakhid said. "During the Gold Cup, I saw eight games in five American cities".
Obviously, Nakhid has been busy. But although his new role is one which he relishes, the former T&T captain and Caribbean Footballer-of-the-Year, admits missing the on-the-field action.
But like everything else, Nakhid realises that very few things last forever.
And, he also recognises the importance of his new assignment.
"I look at the teams that we play next and see their weakness and where we can exploit them to win the game. I also look at their strengths and report on where we have to be careful."
It is obvious that Nakhid is taking  his job as a scout seriously; so seriously, that he travels all the way from his Lebanon home base to pick up assignments on the other side of the world. He has also alerted his Lebanese club  so that at this point in time, T&T can be his first priority.
A player/coach at the club, Nakhid said his Lebanese employers were not too pleased with the arrangement. But he said: "This is a World Cup we taking about. You don't get to go to that every day. As you know we are in pre-season, but that is the sacrifice I have made."
Obviously, Nakhid still has a hunger to get to the World Cup, even if he does not do it as a player. However, he still intends to lend his support to the players and usually joins Beenhakker's training sessions.
"I am there for the younger players. I am there to pass on my experience and answer questions that they might have. And they do ask questions. Aurtis (Whitley), Densill (Theobald) and Chris (Birchall) all come from time to time and ask me questions. I also make suggestions, to any player, who I see needs some help in certain areas. There is a lot that they can learn from me."

Lay off Fenwick, Kelvin Jack fires back at Nakhid
By Lasana Liburd (Trinidad Express)


Trinidad and Tobago and Dundee goalkeeper Kelvin Jack yesterday waded into a public disagreement between two of his former coaches as he defended CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh's English coach Terry Fenwick from allegations that he acted unscrupulously while representing the footballer in Britain.

Former Trinidad and Tobago captain David Nakhid, who serves as a scout for current national coach Leo Beenhakker and was assistant to ex-coach Bertille St Clair, allegedly telephoned a radio talk show that hosted Fenwick on Tuesday and said that Jack told him his professional career was threatened because of the Englishman's greed during negotiations on the goalkeeper's behalf.

Jack denied telling Nakhid anything of the sort and was less than thrilled to find himself in the middle of the row. He insisted that Fenwick, who signed him at Jabloteh, was a "dear friend" and "good man".

"I never told Nahkid that Fenwick tried to outsmart me," Jack told the Express. "And I am very, very angry about hearing that (Nakhid) must have interpreted what I said wrongly. I would never say anything like that because it is not true."

Fenwick signed Jack in 2001 and soon made the imposing goalkeeper his team captain as Jabloteh went on to lift their first domestic league title and were joint Caribbean Club champions during a three-year spell. The Englishman also recommended Jack to several English clubs in 2003, which culminated in trials at Walsall, Crystal Palace and Gillingham. However, he was warned through national teammate, Shaka Hislop, that his representatives were hampering his chances of a move by asking for "a ridiculous finder's fee".

Jack insisted that the blame lay with Fenwick's associate and agent John Mack rather than his ex-coach himself.

"What I told David was that someone working in conjunction with Terry was the one being unreasonable with clubs," he said, "by asking for a ridiculous fee for an unproven player. I never said that Terry cost me 'x and x amount of dollars'. "I am not happy about what David said, especially as it was during a live radio broadcast and I intend to speak with him when next I am in Trinidad.

"Terry is someone I hold in very high esteem and he is a good man who only wants the best for Trinidad football."

Nakhid could not be reached for comment up to press time.

Still, it is not the first time that Fenwick's supposed business dealings prompted debate.

Although never singled out for dishonesty, Fenwick was not helped by his close association with Terry Venables, who resigned as England manager in 1996 to focus on a series of legal wrangling and was subsequently disqualified from serving as a company director.

Fenwick and Venables worked together at Portsmouth where the former was sacked and the latter resigned after poor results in the First Division and a series of controversial signings.

Four years ago, there were murmurs of a possible conflict of interest when Fenwick, then Jabloteh coach, formed the Pro Sports Agency with compatriot and former Football Company of Trinidad and Tobago (FCoTT) CEO Peter Miller and signed several national youth players prior to the 2001 FIFA Under-17 World Championship.

Like Venables, Miller and Fenwick had a brief and inglorious stint together in England.

In 2003, a consortium tried to take over the Luton Football Club and Miller was fingered as the person who sacked manager Joe Kinnear and interviewed Fenwick for the post, although the club ownership never changed hands. Miller, at the time, was the commercial director of rival club, Northampton.

The matter is considered to be still under investigation and is one of the most bizarre events in the club's history.

Fenwick, a former England international, has an inglorious managerial career in Britain where he had brief and largely unsuccessful spells at Crystal Palace, Portsmouth, Northampton and conference team Ashford Town, who fired him earlier this year. However, he is a former Trinidad and Tobago Pro League "Coach of the Year" and the most successful coach in Jabloteh's history. At present, he is in his second stint at the San Juan club.

Title: Big Question for Today... Why is Nakhid training so hard?
Post by: KND2 on October 06, 2005, 12:35:10 PM
When you look at the pictures he is the only-ist one with tall socks and chin guards. The man going though all the drills hard hard hard

would somebody please tell him that he will not be getting any sweet, he cannot make the squad anymore.

He should take his rightful place next to the doctor on the bench.


This way he can work on the Bamsee muscles that he uses on his new position of scouting.

To sit on a plane to Uzbeckistan and then sit in the stands is a tough job he needs to focus on the bamsee muscles and leave the football to the young boys.

Next thing he pull something and is ice bandage and thing we have to waste on him.

Put him to sit down and take back the jersey let him put on a scout jersey.

Gorsh, Tallest, palos, flex, vb, samo all the original warriors where he gone, he is even more missed since this fella using he initials yes!!

KND 2 Leave Nakhid nah boy let him use the team's training warm ups as a means for him to stay in shape, when he is practicing with them he probably imparts some knowledge on the younger ones like Theobald and Jones etc. like what Latas does and everyone really respects the fact that he is now "only" a scout but still finds time to be with the team and help them gel. We need all the help and support that we can get, and Nakhid is helping provide that, I myself doubt and may not want him to actually play for T&T at this level again, but the man is a GREAT resource and training with the team helps THE TEAM, WE TEAM, Leave him alone!!

thank you,
Jason.

KND2 obviously spent most of his past years dreaming for an opportunity to voice his deficient opinion. Nakhid as real football players and credible pundits will know, can only help things when he sweats with the team in practice. So leave KND2, let the two-two flow from he hole.

TTFF apologise for Nakhid's comments
Trinidad Express


TRINIDAD and Tobago senior team assistant coach and former national footballer David Nakhid has defended himself against charges made by his employers, the T&T Football Federation, that he used "racist remarks" in a television interview on CCN TV6's Morning Edition last Tuesday.

In an interview with the show's host, Andy Johnson, Nakhid diverged from footballing issues to air his views on the crime situation that has beseiged the country.

Speaking to the Sunday Express yesterday, Nakhid said: "All I did was say that we have a very bad crime situation and some members of the Syrian community, who are allegedly involved in the drug trade, we want to know why they are not being addressed or investigated. I also added that any community involved in criminal activity should be addressed or investigated, so I don't know how that makes the comments racist."

Nakhid said he was disturbed to learn that the Football Federation had branded his comments as "racist" without them even bothering to seek out his side of the story.

"None of my remarks were racist," he emphasised. "They were specific to the crime situation and to categorise my remarks as racist without speaking to me, there must be something with an agenda that is going on in the T&TFF."

Nakhid did not elaborate on what the agenda might be.

It took the T&TFF four days to respond to Nakhid's alleged remarks yesterday when they stated the organisation and the LOC Germany 2006 Ltd "wish to disassociate themselves, both individually and collectively, from the racist comments or any comments that may be interpreted as racist, that were made by David Nakhid in an interview on national television on the morning of Tuesday October 11, 2005."

But Nakhid was not shocked by the T&TFF reaction and suggested that the organisation may want to get rid of him soon.

"This is no surprise to me," he stated, "but things will show themselves in the next few days. All I can say is my remarks were in no way racist. In fact, they were very well received by the public and in the wider national community. To say that they were racist, that is offensive to me."

He continued: "Syrian is not a race, it is a community, but I attacked the powers up on high and this is just another way for the T&TFF to victimise David Nakhid. I'm getting that the T&TFF feel they have already qualified (for the World Cup) and think it is time to get rid of David Nakhid...we will see."

The T&TFF release, signed by general secretary Richard Groden, went on to say that both T&TFF and LOC Germany 2006 are organisations that pride themselves on the respect they hold for all individuals and groups "regardless of race or religion".

It went further to state that Nakhid was hired by the T&TFF to assist the senior national team in its efforts to qualify for the 2006 FIFA World Cup and that "he is not a spokesperson for either the T&TFF or LOC Germany 2006 Ltd and the views expressed by Mr Nakhid are therefore not the views of either the T&TFF or LOC Germany 2006.

"On behalf of the T&TFF and LOC Germany 2006, we hereby apologise unreservedly to the national community, and especially to the Syrian community towards whom the comments made by Mr Nakhid were directed, and once again affirm our total respect and regard for all human beings regardless of race or religion," the media statement concluded.

To me they should have simply said that, Nakhids comments were his personal comments and that TTFF as a national organisation disclaims any responsibility for them even though he is an employee. Full stop , end of story.
Even though some people might have interperated them to be racist, why say that they were or could have been ?

I met Nakhid once on a flight home from London (after he was released from jail way back in 1996-7 I believe) and we chatted along the way back home. The guy is brave and means well. He just has this propensity to fight for some persons or group that are being disadvantaged ( that is what got him into trouble in the first place in Lebanon) but he does not do it with the degree of tact and skilful language that he should. And he always like to fight someone else's battle fuh dem.

De man just goes overboard sometimes and in the last couple of weeks he went off attacking Terry Fenwick Jabloteh coach and had to eat his words because they had two later articles dat say all dat he said was a setta lies, now is like de same ting happening with him jumpin unto the crime situation when he should be taking about football and start pointin fingers so I guess people call de TTFF and complain and dat was dat. Now he own employers shootin he down and he coming back at them with a setta threats and ting. If he doan look out Jack go squash he again!

He is a good man and he means well but Nakhid should just shut up and help get we to Germany. He does his best work on de football field certainly not in front of a mic.

Furthermore I don't think he can be called racist since is wife is Lebanese. Politics is everywhere in the world and especially in a small country like T&T.

Title: The David Nakhid Thread
Post by: royalian on October 17, 2005, 06:31:02 AM
David Nakhid fired.
By: Joel Bailey.
[/size]

David Nakhid has been fired as assistant coach/team scout of the Trinidad and Tobago football team. Making this disclosure was special adviser to the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) Jack Warner yesterday on radio station WMJX 100.5 FM.
During a television programme on Tuesday last, Nakhid reportedly accused members of the Syrian community for playing major roles in the local crime situation and wondered why such matters were not being investigated.
Yesterday, Warner said. "You should let sleeping dogs lie. (Team coach Leo) Beenhakker has said he doesn’t need his services anymore," Warner disclosed. (The TTFF) have terminated his contract based on Mr Beenhakker’s advice."
On Saturday the TTFF, together with the Local Organising Committee (LOC) Germany 2006 Limited in a media statement disassociate themselves, both individually and collectively, from the racist comments or any comments that may be interpreted as racist, that were made by Nakhid in the interview on TV6.
The TTFF release, which was signed by general secretary Richard Groden, pointed out that Nakhid is not a spokesperson for either body and the views expressed are not the views of the TTFF or LOC Germany 2006 Ltd. According to a newspaper article yesterday, Nakhid hinted that the TTFF would have given him the boot on the basis of his comments.
Warner said that they have apologised to the Syrian community. "And I think the community has accepted our apology," he said on WMJX. Nakhid, the 41-year-old former national captain, has had a long list of controversial issues since making his name with St Mary’s College in the 1980s.

My only concern is that this doesn't destabilize the team or act as a distraction.

he has nothing left to do anyway so why pay him for nothing?  Beenie done organize a big Dutch coach to scout Bahrain already.
But I wonder if he will still be invited back to train with the squad.  he can still help the younger players in training.  Who knows Nakhid might still have visions of running out for T&T in Germany next June!

he is still good enough to make a contribution.  Anyone who saw our match against lima of peru would realise just how good nahkid can still play!

but he do ah bag ah nonsense on de talk show, no matter what he believes to be right, that was not the forum for such an outburst!

Arrow et al ...what you smokin dred?!..after this kind of EMBARRASSMENT..you think Leo will be mad enough to have this man anywhere near this team...after the comesse he try to get Jack involved with a few weeks ago and now this?!!...Nakhid (for all his skill and ability on the field) only role now is as a spectator...give him a pair of thunderstix and a beer funnel and tell him cool it! 

Yorke and Latas = veterans and true professionals
Nakhid = fill een the blanks..the list is too long to mention..

Now is the time for TEAM building ..no distractions! 

Regarding bringing back veterans (ie. men that pushing 40) ... we MUST have 3 or 4 Under 23 players that we could bring in to camp and 1 or 2 that could travel to Germany should we qualify... groom them for 2010...the focus has to be development,  not giving men a chance to play in the WC as a last chance before they retire! 

Come on people ..leh we expect better nah!

Now while it is true dat de Syrian and dem may or may not be involved in big crime in T&T...what de f@ck he talking bout dat on football show for?

Ask anybody So what if Nakid say that on radio.

Is not no news.

If that is the reason then it is quite stupid because it dont make any sense.

Trinidad have free speech and Free press.

I not sure what Nakhid did say and in what context but to say " Syrian running drugs" is not a reason to fire some body.

Maybe they dont need anymore scouts as Bennie man send his dutch friend to scout Bahrain that might make more sense.

people in TnT just like a bacanal and like to run they mouth.

Jack must be looking for Syrian Campaign Money and votes or something so the big boys put a squeeze on him to act on Nakhid.

as the article says, don leo did not require his services anymore. that should be that main point. the fact that he talking about syrian connection to crime in t&t does not really deal with football. i dont think his comments warranted his dismissal.

he shouldnt have made those comments on a football tv show, but regardless, he wasnt fired for his comments. he was fired because he isnt needed by don leo for scouting anymore.

Beenhakker: Nakhid's job is done T&T coach's focus only on Bahrain.
By: Lasana Liburd.


Trinidad and Tobago national coach Leo Beenhakker yesterday denied that chief scout and ex-captain David Nakhid was fired despite alleged assertions to the contrary by Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) special advisor Jack Warner.
On Sunday, Warner allegedly informed listeners on Radio WMJX 100.5 FM that the Lebanon-based Nakhid was relieved from his duties, on Beenhakker's advice, just five days after his controversial appearance on TV6's Morning Edition programme.
Nakhid suggested that some members of the Syrian community were involved in the drug trade and questioned why they were not being investigated.
The T&TFF subsequently apologised to the Syrian community and insisted that Nakhid does not speak for the football organisation.
Beenhakker admitted that Nakhid will play no role within his camp for Trinidad and Tobago's two-legged World Cup Play-Off fixtures against Bahrain next month.
However, the Holland-born coach said Nakhid's absence was merely because he had already completed his duties for the qualifying campaign.
"He is not fired," said Beenhakker, who is in Europe at present. "I have nothing to say about (him being fired) because he was not fired. We don't need him for the next two games because we already have all the (scouting) report we need from Bahrain."
Beenhakker refused to say whether Nahkid, who once played under him at Swiss club FC Grasshoppers, would be reinstated if Trinidad and Tobago progress to the World Cup final.
Instead, the former Holland and Real Madrid coach insisted his focus was only on Bahrain.
"Everyone is talking about Germany," said Beenhakker.
"First step, let us try to beat Bahrain. Then, we will have enough time to make preparations for Germany."
Beenhakker returns to Trinidad in early November to prepare the squad for their final qualifying hurdles at home on November 12 and in Bahrain on November 16.

Correct me if I'm wrong
Nakhid was hired before Beenhakker.
Beenhakker has said all the way from the start that he will use his own proffesionals /scouts and that the assistents that were brought in before his appointment will have to do some side jobs.
So Nakhid was never a scout under Beenhakker
Not ?

Nakhid & Latapy were orginally announced as assistant coaches to Beenhakker.  Beenhakker nix dat early o'clock.  He say if dey want to come back as players he would be interested but he needed to wok with assistants who he knew and who knew exactly what he wanted and were familiar with his philosophies & technicques especially as he had such little time to prepare the team.

Latapy originally said he was only interested in coming back as a coach, not a player.  So he didn't return.  After a couple outing with the T&T team, Nakhid apparently couldn't handle de twice a day practices plus de jammin from de opposition so he was added to the technical staff as a scout.

In any case, Beenie say today dat Makhid wasn't fired (contrary to what Jack say).  He say Nakhid was not needed for these last 2 games as he already had a Dutch scout who scouted Bahrain.  Take from dat what u will.

Fired?

OR

Wasn't needed?

Exercise in semantics I think.

Jack says Nakhid is fired...Benie says he wasn't needed

Everyone here is quick to blame Nakhid for running off his mouth in the press but Jack is forever guilty of the same thing and more.
If people like Yorke and Latas took everything Jack says to heart then they would be nowhere near the team today because of all the bad shit he talked about them in public

Jack just lets ppl know who is the boss and he favours no one even the government,i don't think ppl knows how powerful this man is,the same way he says things about ppl is the same way things are being said about him,it still have ppl in T&T that have nothing good to say about him don't matter what he does,but again i'll say to you all without Jack Football in T&T is dead.

Post by: greenpea on October 20, 2005, 04:37:27 AM
Nakhid is in a position where people listen to his comments so he should
1. be careful about what he says
2. weigh the consequences
3. add enough context and balance to avoid misinterpretation

Its good that his efforts and contributions are not being disparaged - as one of the carryovers from the previous staff his role may have been important in the transition process.

His success at the professional and national levels speak for themselves..... like i tell the kids... smart people make stupid mistakes.....  :chilling:
Title: Nahkid on Bahrain technical staff ??
Post by: andre samuel on October 22, 2005, 04:44:33 PM
Just received a call from Patriot and he said that on 95.5fm he heard that a caller from Bahrain (Vijay, the sports editor from the Gulf Newspaper) stated that David Nahkid has been approached to join Bahrain Technical staff and he is most likely to accept the position!!

Nahkid is no good. Apparently he has a side of a story that will be aired shortly!!

More updates to follow I'm listening to the talk show now!!

update 1

He is apparently going to take the job, I will update later with Nahkid's story.

Update 2

Nahkid had a fight with one of the assistant coaches in Panama about some comments about Islam. It was a very intense confrontation and Beenhaker said nothing about the matter.  He said that he know that he was going to get fired.
He said that the TTFF tried to place a spin on it by firing him for so-called comments on the TV show.
He said that he is free to do what he wants and now he is free to work for whoever he wants.
He didnt confirm whether or not he is going to be on their staff, he said that everything will be revealed shortly. He said that Beenhaker is not the nice man that people think he is and Beenhakker siding with the man who made that racist highlights that!! He also said that Giovannie Elber also warned him about Beenhaker!!
Nakhid mum on Bahrain coaching job.
By Zaid Mohammed (Newsday).


Former Trinidad and Tobago football captain David Nakhid last night refused to confirm or deny that he has been offered a position on the coaching staff of the Bahrain national team.
Nakhid, who was recently sacked as a scout for the Trinidad and Tobago team after comments he made about the Syrian community on local television, was speaking on i95.5 FM Radio to host Andre E Baptiste.
Yesterday a report carried in a Bahraini newspaper and confimed by the Sports Editor of the Gulf Daily News stated that Nakhid, 41, will be joining the Persian Gulf team in a "technical capacity."
Vijay Muratallah, also speaking on i95.5 FM yesterday, said Nakhid will be providing information to the Bahrainis about the Trinidad and Tobago players ahead of their crucial two-leg play-off series for a spot in the World Cup Finals in Germany next year.
The first leg is on November 12 in Port-of-Spain with the return match in Manama, four days later.
"I am a free agent. For the past eight months I have been with the Trinidad and Tobago team and two matches away from the World Cup Finals they make a decision that had nothing to do with what actually happened," said Nakhid yesterday.
He said that the decision to fire him as a team scout was unrelated to the statements he made on the crime situation linking it to members of the Syrian communirty on TV6’s Morning Edition programme two Tuesdays ago.
Instead, Nakhid told i95.5 FM that he almost came to blows with assistant team coach Whim Rijsbergen while the team was in Panama recently for a CONCACAF World Cup qualifying match.
"He has always been making remarks about Islam and Muslims. But when he spoke about Moroccans ruling Dutch society, I could not take it anymore, especially in the month of Ramadan," Nakhid, a Muslim said.
He said he had an intense verbal confrontation with Rijsbergen which was witnessed by national coach Leo Beenhakker, a compatriot of Rijsbergen.
"Beenhakker did not say anything at the time but after I spoke on television on the crime situation I saw the Football Federation claim that the remarks were racist and were disassociating themselves from it. I think that the statement is libellious and my attorneys are looking into it," said Nakhid yesterday.
He also disputed Beenhakker’s claim that he was hired for two matches insisting that he had e-mails which proved otherwise.
The former national midfielder, who has played professionally in Lebanon, Switzerland and in the MLS in the United States said that he is keeping his options open since he had outstanding issues to settle with the Football Federation. "If I am offered a job with the Bahrain team I will tell you about it," Nakhid told i95.5 FM’s Baptiste.

Nakhid in his own words! (http://www.socawarriorssc.com/swonline/smf/index.php?topic=5470.msg42742#msg42742)

IF this is true...whaz de difference between Nakhid sell out (and dat is exactly what it would be), and Jamaica takin de match?

Both not doin anything illegal

Both doin it fuh money (and maybe in Nakhid case...fuh spite)

Both go say is to Trinidad advantage dat dey doin wha dey doin (Jamaica sayin we go be able to scout Bahrain (as if we eh do dat arready)....and Nakid might say he go give dem wrong information)

At de end of de day, T&T still have to beat Bahrain on aggregate in dese 2 matches.  If we have to depend on Jamaica or Nakhid or anybody else to do so, maybe we doh deserve to be dey.

If anything, de positive is yuh go see who yuh tort was fren reveal dem true colours.

If there is truth in these alleged reports, we are seeing the seedly side to sports. Man will sell they own mother for money and the opportunity  of glory!!!!!!!!

Then again consider this: what if all this was  a set up by TTFF; sack the man which Beenie says was not so;  make it public; let Bahrain take the bait and he go there and  give them misinfromation? Ah mean come on Nahkid know the sweat and tears we have been through; tell me he eh go do that? then again man does change they stripes and come back with  alll they HART  representing another country and gloat after  defeating TNT.

CONTROVERSIAL former captain and assistant coach of Trinidad and Tobago David Nakhid is believed to be in Bahrain and offering his services to the national team ahead of their World Cup playoff clash against the Caribbean side.

Nakhid was sacked by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation after he suggested some members of the Syrian community were involved in drug trade and questioned why they were not being charged in a television interview on CCN TV6's Morning Edition.

But none of the Bahrain Football Association officials were ready to comment on the matter.

However, it is believed that Nakhid will be providing Bahrain with video tapes of matches involving Trinidad in the Concacaf qualifying round and also hold a seminar to brief the national team coaching staff of the conditions in Port-of-Spain in general and about the Trinidad team in particular.

Nakhid, 41, won two National Championships and Domestic Cups with Grasshopper FC of Switzerland and was the two-time Most Valuable Player for Belgian first division club Waregem.

The former midfielder also won three league championships and three Cups with Al Ansar of Lebanon apart from being voted Caribbean Player of the year in 1993.

He was also voted Player of the Year in Lebanon for two successive years and in 2005 Nakhid was inducted into the American University Hall of Fame

The most hurtful thing about this......is ok even doe Nahkid might be vex with Jack, Beenhaker, the assistant coach whoever.

He selling out and he is hurting the land of his birth and the people of Trinidad and Tobago.

That is treason and he would have been shot.

Alyuh doe understand the implications of his actions.........he eat sleep train and travel with the team.

the 4ker does even run the drills and be in the scrimmage, looking most excited.

He know every player, every weakness and stength, he know all of our set plays etc.

You know what sad at the end of the day..them Bahrainians ent go give 2 shit about him..........take him and use him and discard him.
He have no honour......if you could do that to your own nation, you think they ent know at the back of they mind what he could do to them too.

How you in good conscious go and help out your opponents, vs your COUNTRY.

This is just another example of why we doe go nowhere, and does 4cup thing when we finally start to go good.

Watch and see...........Is now we winning these games and going WOrld CUp!

This will raise the JEP Nest for Latapy and Yorke and the rest of the team. They need NO MORE INCENTIVE.

CONTROVERSIAL former captain and assistant coach of Trinidad and Tobago David Nakhid is believed to be in Bahrain and offering his services to the national team ahead of their World Cup playoff clash against the Caribbean side. THIS MAY OR MAYNOT BE FACTUAL

 FACT
: Nakhid was sacked by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation after he suggested some members of the Syrian community were involved in drug trade and questioned why they were not being charged in a television interview on CCN TV6's Morning Edition.

But none of the Bahrain Football Association officials were ready to comment on the matter. WHY NOT?

Alyuh doe understand the implications of his actions.........he eat sleep train and travel with the team.

the 4ker does even run the drills and be in the scrimmage, looking most excited.

He know every player, every weakness and stength, he know all of our set plays etc.


Exactly what i was thinking as i was driving home tonight!!!  This is soo much worse that J'ca, he could speak to the mentality of our players and how to get in their heads, who have no left foot, what Beenie approach to the game will be...
I am still hoping that its not true, as far as I am concerned if he even considering the possibility he is a Traitor.

Ever since I new about David Nakhid he always wanted to be the center of attention, like a little 2yr old child. Lets not even talk about it anymore or mention his name on this site. That's exactly what he wants. He wants to feel important. The best way to win this battle is to not ever mention his name on this site anymore becasue he wants to be the center of attention. No more postings about Nakhid. Forget his name. Who is Nakhid, I never heard about him.)):

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is serious  shit but QUESTION: who is behind this chain of events? for example who put pressure under the TTFF to react to Nahkid's statements? which Syrian community did  that? Knowing that we would have no recause but to disassociate the man from the team. Why do it now at a time like this? I wonder if the Bahrainians  threatened us that with Nahkid on we team staff taht would pose a security risk? then  would it be like them to go and  hire the man for all the money he want?

Did the TTFF have to act so quickly and  dispatch the man from the team? Remember I rasied the question when we preparing for Mexico and Beenien had decided to send he  own to scout the Bahrains; I had even question then as to why Nahkid was not doing that?  Maybe Beenie figured out somebody on staff is adouble agent? But what de arse really going on?

It just seems like the timining fuh all these events are  a little timely.

Post by: AB.Trini on October 22, 2005, 08:06:41 PM
Listening to this emotional interview could soemone clear up some of these events?

When TTFF hired Beenie, was not Nahkid original role to be an  assistant coach?

Then he was the one who met Beenie at the airport etc...

Did Nahkid not play a game or two for TNT  under Beenie man?

If Nahkid was not performing  his assigned role as a technical staff  the way Beenie wanted it, why was this not shared with the man?

It just appears to me that  like you mentioned Royalian, there are two sides of the story. So far we are getting one side. Are there some inner turmoils that we are not getting the goods on? Problem with this is dat the timming here go cause man to do real  crap and spite we just fuh so?

Nahkid brave boy!!! He definitely aint coming back to Trinidad ever

You obviously don't know Trinidad.

Win lose or draw with Bahrain, nobody is going to give Nakhid no static because that is not our way. He might get some picong, some ole talk on the main road, a man like Sam might pelt a bottle behind him, but he has no real backlash to fear from the general populace.

He will be persona non grata in the football fraternity as long as the current regime is there though.


I tink we all worrying about nutting. Nahkid ent stewpid. He know dat he musta sign a non-disclosure with de TTFF when he waz part of de team. He ent go risk a law suit man!

The kind of knowledge that Nakhid could impart can't be protected by a confidentiality agreement. If he tells them to put a fast left back and attack down our left side there is nothing we could do to stop that.

What clubs usually have is the ability to make a coach or executive wait before he moves to a competitor and I am sure that none of that is in place since this situation was absolutely inconceivable.

Its long time he set this up and he was just looking for a excuse to jump ship.

I laugh when I hear it..............but you know it kinda making sense in a indirect sort of way.

The man on the block does put spinn on all kinda thing eh.

There shoulda be no question of him dealing with Bahrain no way no how.........Nahkid is a JUDAS!

and I sure somebody go find a way to defend the man for this action and say...you know I could see why he do it.

Thanks very very much for posting the  audio.

Nakhid should have stated that he has no intention of working with the Bahrainians.  The fact that he did not do so and is leaving the door open to an offer nullifies any other argument he is making about why he was fired.  It is difficult to believe a  man, as connected as he was with the TTFF, who would even consider working for the Bahrainians in the present context.   Nakhid should not try to smear the coaching staff in that way.  There are other ways to raise his concerns

Nakhid again!

Bacchanalist to de extreme.

He had run een wit Gally

He had run een wit several European coaches wit several different clubs

He call fuh strike before a Shell Caribbean Cup final wit Pele in de stands

Jack Warner had to rescue de same Nakhid from de Lebanese or Saudis (cyah remember which one...maybe Nakhid might tell meh what time it is and accuse meh of racism fuh dat) when dey did tek way he passport and detain him fuh causin bacchanal in de people country

He had run een wit Latapy accusin Latapy of all kinda ting

He tell de papers dat Kelvin Jack say something derogatory bout Terry Fenwick and Jack come back and categorically DENY what Nakhid say.

He accusin Rijsbergen of racism and Andre Baptiste carryin on like Nakhid word is gospel without affordin Rijsbergen the same leeway he gives Nakhid.

Now he goin and give Bahrain information bout we team after bein wit we team fuh almost a year.


Nakhid seems to be a disruptive influence, whether he feel he have good intentions or not, no matter where he goes.  It has been his modus operandi throughout his career.  Perhaps the T&T team is BETTER OFF WITHOUT NAKHID.

A riddle ah riddle ah ree: If these speculations continue and it comes to fuition, why would a nation who culturally puts a high value on TRUST  turn to someone who has betrayed  friends, a team he was so much a part of and a nation?  Advice for Mr.Nahkid:             

  Don’t cut off your nose to spite your face


Don’t engage in an act of anger or revenge that will hurt you more than it hurts anyone else.
What is the phrase, "to cut off one's nose to spite their face" means, and where does it come from?
: It means to do something, out of spite and desire to be difficult, that hurts oneself more than anyone else.
 
DON'T CUT OFF YOUR NOSE TO SPITE YOUR FACE - "Vengeful rage has led to many pointless and foolish acts.but none so stupid as those in which we try to get back at someone else by punishing ourselves.The current proverb was first recorded about 1200 as a Latin saying, 'He who cuts off his nose takes poor revenge for a shame inflected upon him.'." From "Wise Words and Wives' Tales: The Origins, Meanings and Time-Honored Wisdom of Proverbs and Folk Sayings Olde and New" by Stuart Flexner and Doris Flexner (Avon Books, New York, 1993). "By 1788 Peter Grose was defining it in his 'Classical Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue: 'He cut off his nose to be revenged of his face, said of one who, to be revenged of his neighbour, has materially injured himself.'" From "Dictionary of Cliches" by James Rogers (Wings Books, Originally New York: Facts on File Publications, 1985).

I can't understand us. We fire Nakhid and bulls**t*** him. Now why we care about what he do. Now, I am not saying that if he take such a job he is right. But what should he do? Just sit around playing with his b*lls. We have aways treated Nakhid unfairly. So why should he owe us anything? He is just a passionate guy who expresses himself. Are we not allowed to do that anymore in T&T?

How EXACTLY has T&T treated Nakhid unfairly?

Please enlighten me.

Thanks.

In life all you can have is your dignity and integrity as a human being . Being dedicated and loyal are lifelong traits that indicate strong chararacter and deep seated ethics.

Nakhid is no more than a lost soul that seeks attention and cannot deal with criticism . He is self righteous and narrow minded. If he is selling out for the mighty dollar he is nothing better that a two bit WHORE!

Definetely not a role model for the youths of Trinidad and Tobago. Nakhid is a just another LOST SOUL that needs PRAYERS!

FATZ jlloyd is a very good player and he plays regularly for his club he is just coming off and injury thats why is is one the bench a bit but honestly he is highly in england and played everygame last season without playing for tnt so i dont think he trying to use we to get pips the man is a blodclaat trini anywhere yuh read up on the man it mark trinidad and tobago even in them football game and them soooo that little shows

When I was living in England I remember seeing a piece on TV about JLloyd where he was talking about his Trini roots and how he wants to contribute to Trinidad and Tobago.

The only thing is that he never backed it up with action in terms of playing before. His timing jus look real bad but he may be very useful to us.

Why was Nakhid fired the first time from the National team? Because he spoke up. He stood up to the power that be and he was cut down. I know everyone is in support mode - there I say bandwagon  mode - so we will all suuport until we lose and then you will see the forest for the trees. Many of us think he was no good as a player for T&T ( I have read many posts here), yet anyone that knows anything about football knows that he has been our most technical player. Now he says things that we don't want to hear, and that the higher up don't want to hear and he is punished again. Leo is talking out his rear when he says Nakhid is no longer needed, because scouting is over. Crap.
If this is the case, then he was never needed. Why? Because we played Gautemala and was hammered, therfore they know how to beat us, we know  what we have to work on to beat them. We beat Panama so we know how to beat them- they need to figure out how to beat us. They would not do that trying to beat Mexico or USA. We saw Panama and the USA play so many games in the Commonwealth cup. We are just persecuting anyone that is not in support of the team, or our cause. So what if Nakhid express some personal opinion. A disclaimer and we move on.

When you said Nakhid was treated unfairly by T&T I suspected there was no debating with you

But from de time you talk bout he is our most technical player, ah realize is jes a waste of time.

David Nakhid is David Nakhid worst enemy and nobody or no entity ever do more unfairness to David Nakhid dan David Nakhid.

thats nonsense....

anyway,quick question (and i could only skim thru the thread cuz im in a rush) but this source is a bahrain reporter! is there a possibility that maybe this reporter lying and just trying to stir things up to get us off our game??

also, the nakhid interview link aint working. anyone can repost that?

and the 95.5 interviewers are such ass***** to de callers for no reason most of the time. kinda funny but idiotic..only ting you hear is yes good evening,and tank you very much.

Nahkind is ah mad man to think that he can go and work for bahrain, full stop.

I here men comparing it to the fac tthat Sven is ah swede and he coaching england. But sven wasnt involved in coaching in sweden for all the qualifiers and then all of a sudden just jump in de england bandwagon for de play offs, so dat different.

But say what, this will not affect us, cause we going and beat bahrain real bad....SOMEBODY MUST PAY!!

Title: The David Nakhid Thread
Post by: Mr Mc on October 23, 2005, 08:58:07 PM
David Nakhid: No help for Bahrian.
By: Lasana Liburd (Express).
[/size]

Former Trinidad and Tobago national football team captain David Nakhid yesterday denied any approach from the Bahrain Football Association (BFA) to spy on his homeland for next month's crucial 2006 World Cup qualifiers between the two countries.
However, Nakhid, an employee of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) for much of their World Cup campaign, admitted that he already accepted an offer to coach Bahrain's national under-20 squad and oversee their youth programme.
Nakhid claimed to have insisted on one condition. He would have nothing to do with the Bahrain senior team until the completion of their qualifying schedule.
Trinidad and Tobago tackle Bahrain in home and away qualifying fixtures on November 12 and 16. The winner alone would advance to the Germany showcase tournament.
The 41-year-old Nakhid, who was fired by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) via email on October 15, made no secret of his bias for next month's vital play-off match.
"I want Trinidad and Tobago to qualify," said Nakhid, who represented T&T as a player in three qualifying campaigns. "I have had no discussion with any member of the Bahrain national team. Everything that has been written is just speculation by the Bahraini press."
Nakhid claimed that he received a courtesy call by a Bahraini scout, on October 15, congratulating him on his role with the national squad. He insisted that there was nothing unusual about the gesture since he was well known in the Middle East because of his playing career in Lebanon.
He told the official that he was no longer employed by the T&TFF and, two hours later, he allegedly received an e-mail from the Bahrain Minister of Sport, which offered him the role of national youth coach. Nakhid said that the Bahraini minister was a fellow American University past pupil who had kept abreast of his career.
He insisted that he was never asked to provide a dossier on the Trinidad and Tobago team.
Nakhid also dismissed reports in the Trinidad and Tobago media that the Bahraini players were promised US $1 million and a Mercedes Benz each if they booked a place at the 2006 World Cup and claimed the story was met with anger in the Asian country. Like Trinidad and Tobago, Bahrain have never qualified for a Fifa senior tournament.
"There is a misconception that countries like Bahrain have money throwing around," said Nakhid. "That is real stupidness. The fact is the (Bahrain) players don't make more than a thousand Dinars a game (US$2,652.00). So the Trinidad players actually make more."
In contrast, Jack Warner, T&TFF special advisor, promised that each T&T player will receive between US$10,000 and $12,000 in match fees for next month's clash against Bahrain.
Nakhid spoke to the Trinidad Express from Bahrain where he has already began putting things in place for his new role, which officially commences at the end of their qualifying campaign.
He again insisted that his split from the T&TFF was due to a dispute with assistant national coach Whim Rhizerburg-who, like head coach Leo Beenhakker, is Dutch-and not because of comments aired on the TV6 Morning Edition regarding "some members of the Syrian community, who are allegedly involved in the drug trade".
The alleged incident occurred at a Panamanian hotel on October 7, a day before T&T edged their hosts 1-0 in a crucial qualifier, when Nakhid took exception to the quality of sandwiches provided for the players by a waitress and voiced his disapproval of the hotel's fare.
Certain comments by Rhizerburg about Arabians, according to Nakhid, then ignited the situation.
The pair came close to blows.
Beenhakker, who coached Nakhid in the early 1990s at Swiss club, FC Grasshoppers, was not present at the time but Nakhid said that the ex-Real Madrid and Dutch national boss never spoke to him again.
Nakhid believes that his split from the T&TFF had more to do with the Panama incident than the TV6 episode.
"Warner knew he could not give the real reason why I was fired," he said. "So he used the TV6 programme instead."
Nakhid's run-ins with the establishment are as famous as his crafty passes.
Shunned by Cummings, he joined the national team in 1992 towards the end of their unsuccessful World Cup qualifying campaign. He was elevated to the role of captain in 1994 when he helped T&T regain the Caribbean title and was adjudged the Caribbean's Player of the Year.
In the 1994 Caribbean Cup final, though, the national team refused to play unless they were paid outstanding monies owed by the local association. A deal was clinched and they went out to hammer Martinique 7-2-the highest score ever in a regional final.
Nakhid went on to fall out publicly with the Lebanon FA (he was jailed but subsequently cleared by FIFA of alleged dishonesty as a football agent with Warner playing an integral role in his release), the T&TFF (he was declared persona non grata after the 2001 Concacaf Gold Cup), his former teammate Russell Latapy (he hinted that Latapy's handlers initiated a protest against his return as a player last year) and CL Financial San Juan Jabloteh coach and ex-English international Terry Fenwick (he questioned Fenwick's coaching capabilities and role as a sport agent on a live radio broadcast).
In each case, Nakhid landed on his feet with little evident long-term damage.
He is the only Trinidad and Tobago player in this decade to be afforded a testimonial match by the T&TFF while he returned to Lebanon to work as a player and then coach. His position within Beenhakker's squad also survived Latapy's return to international duty.
Nakhid, who said he had no personal problems with either Warner or Beenhakker, insisted he was no troublemaker but merely someone always willing to stand up for what was right in his opinion.
"Anyone who disrespects me or who I am," said Nakhid, "I will not accept it. I want to go to the World Cup but not at the expense of my dignity. My ambition (as a person) is to lead a happy and fulfilling life.
"I wish Trinidad and Tobago all the best. It was great to have been involved but I cannot say I am saddened because nothing surprises me in football."
Nakhid's imminent switch from the T&TFF to the Bahrain FA is the latest of many surprises by one of the country's most gifted past players.

Why would they hire him to coach?  He is no big coach.  He have no setta credentials.  Out of all the aspiring coaches, they happen to choose a very recent staff member of the team they playin against in their biggest games ever??  I don't buy dat at all. They/Nakhid musbe feel we dotish.

its mostly natural  ;D

(no need to offend me man... I've been nothing but cool with you guys)

But I read in an interview with Nakhid

"I am lebanese and played with AL Ansar in Lebanon, then I moved to the US to study, and I played for the university... there my name became big, and I played for European teams from 89-97. In 1994 I became captain of Trinidad after I got Trinidadian citizen ship in 1997 I became an assistant manager for the Trinidad national team. In 2000 I went back to my homeland Lebanon to play and train the team Almubra and I have been in my original country lebanon since"

Thats an interview with him ... so don't act like a fool when someone asks a question... just answer it if you want... if not then have the decency not to comment about it

I understand bro  :) but you guys need to cool down, this is football and football is life !

but before that we are human, and truely if Trinidad out play my team then they deserve all the credit they get... (and if any bahraini fan says he does not have respect for Trinidad them its a lie... we respect your team, and more than that we respect your people!)

you guys are like us... a small island country surrounded by richer, more famouse countries and you want to break out ... we have Saudi, Iran etc... U have the US, Mexico etc... people tend to overlook us both! we are alike ...

your society is built on many different people's we are the same (about 8-9 ethnic backgrounds make up bahrain, offcourse when you are around since the mesopetamian era lol it happens) in that we are similar!

HELL WE BOTH LOVE FOOTBALL SO MUCH (but lack the funding, the respected officials to push our talented players into greatness) in that we are similar!


If nakhid wants to betray a country he played for... we should not accept that gesture ... we are arab! our society is built on Honor and pride... what he is doing (assuming he is doing it) is spitting on the face of every thing that makes us arabic! and I don't respect him for that... nor do I want his help ...

Respect for you my brothers! we both want our teams to win, but more than that I wish trinidadians all the luck in life

actually I would be a sea dweller ... cause Bahrain isn't nomadic... its a pearl diving, sea traveling based community

to be a desert dweller I'd need to be a nomad... but I'm a sea man ... have been since about 5000years BC ...

no need to disrespect me, not that I care what you think, I rather enjoy talking with some users on this forum (who have been freindly to me), and we have a good freindly convo going ...

Nakhid have a family to look after. When TTFF fire him, he was unemployed, now he employed.
He says he is there to coach the under 20 team, no problem.
Problem will be when they start to pepper him for TT team info and he realise that friend or no friend the sports minister just using him.
Then you know what ? Nakhid go say "haul allyuh mudder ..." in a decent way  :rotfl:
and Jack going to have to bail him out of another mideast jail.
Even if it doesn't work out that way and Nakhid really passes on info, you think it will make any difference ?

Why leave the nation in suspense though, why did he not just say it was for the under-20 Bahrain team from the get go.

Nahkid seems to love the spotlight and can't stand it when his 15 minutes of fame are up.

But the timing is extremely suspect...what has to be done now with the National UNder 20 team that cannot be done after Nov 16.

He just wants to make the TTFF sweat for his perceived disrespect to him.

There are so many nuances to this story,but one thing for sure is nahkid has certainly shown us where he stands,but I warn don't be fooled by his response and take anything for granted we make choices in this life and they all come with consequences whether it be good or bad and as for what each of us on this forum have done for our country I don't think it justifies an answer we all have contributed,some more than others,but at the end of the day nahkid will be remembered most of all as the ex national player who simply sold out and god forbid because of this it has a negative impact on the campaign with the results not going the way we hope it would the rest is history.

in life it is better to avoid the perception of impropriety altogether.... for those who choose to believe that these dealings with the Bahrain FA are above board then congrats... the job award should have been timed for after the 16th and kept under wraps..... as great as Nahkid is on the football field his dealings with organizations and people have been fraught with controversy..... amazing that this job should even be considered.... think 3 months down the road .... win or lose (knock on wood) either way Nahkid is not going to be trusted by either party ... Trini nor Bahrain..... so no long term vision here..... maybe we could have a new award ... Benedictus ANahkid .....hmmmm good idea for a poll .... :chilling:

Certain comments by Rhizerburg about Arabians, according to Nakhid, then ignited the situation.
The pair came close to blows.
Beenhakker, who coached Nakhid in the early 1990s at Swiss club, FC Grasshoppers, was not present at the time but Nakhid said that the ex-Real Madrid and Dutch national boss never spoke to him again.
Nakhid believes that his split from the T&TFF had more to do with the Panama incident than the TV6 episode.
"Warner knew he could not give the real reason why I was fired," he said. "So he used the TV6 programme instead."
Nakhid's run-ins with the establishment are as famous as his crafty passes.

 Well nahkid yuh could ah ignore Rhizerburg you make comments on the syrian community to good riddens

Does this forum owe Nakhid an apology because of the many things said about him since his TV6 interview and alleged firing?  He has now come forward with his version of the story and like everything else unless you hear from both parties it is very difficuult to draw a conclusion like some have in this forum. 

Remember before you respond emotionally - Mr. Warner "was hated" in most part, because for a very long time no one ever heard his side of the many stories.  We are a very unique people, in that we are always ready and willing to destroy our own instaed of support them.  Nakhid's appointment to a National youth team can only help us in the future, he is one of our more accomplished individuals.

My Sentiments exactly Andre.

Been reading the reports about allegations  Mr.Nahkid is proported to have said and  one has to wonder what credentials would qulaify Mr. Nahkid as a coach for the Bahrains U-20  team? It would appear that the timining for this u-20 announcement is too coincedental to his firing. What  urgency is there to him being in Bahrain to discuss u-20 preparations?

One could disguise it how much you want but this constitutes another  'mental ploy' to shift  the focus of indiscretions.

I agree that thetiming is suspect and considering what is at stake, their is an opportunity for him to provide info.  But, let me play devils advocate.  As many have argued before, is he suppose to stay unemployed?  How will he feed his wife and children?  Don Leo stood up for his country man (as it relate to the alleged incident), why is David's version untrue.  Again, lets not take this personal, this is football, and I guarantee you David and Mr. Warner are still best of friends.

Notice from the Trinidad & Tobago Football Federation.
By: Shaun Fuentes.
[/size]

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation, following its own investigation, can reveal that by all knowledge, a female acquaintance of former TTFF employee David Nakhid, had approached local media houses for footage of recent matches played by the Trinidad and Tobago National Senior Team.
These enquiries were in fact made early last week before the news broke that there was some form of link between Mr Nakhid and the Bahrain Football Association..
Mr Nakhid’s link contacted TTFF Media for videotapes or DVDs of the National team matches of recent and also whatever was possible from the earlier stages of the 2006 “Journey to Germany” campaign, stating that it was for use in producing of a documentary on the team’s progress, for which documentary Nakhid never discussed with anyone of the team management nor with the TTFF nor with the Local Organising Committee Germany 2006.
Sunity Maharaj, Executive Producer of local television show Total Football also revealed that she was approached by the same female acquaintance.
“I was given a request by this person and was told that it was for the sake of a personal archive after enquiring why the tapes were being asked for. I then referred her to the TTFF because I am well aware that they hold the rights to these type of footage,” Maharaj stated.
Another well known local media man, Ruskin Mark of NCC Channel 4 also recalled receiving a similar request.
“Nakhid's female acquaintance called and asked for the tapes or whatever footage that may assist her and I could only refer her to the TTFF following that request,” Mark said.
Since the story broke, David Nakhid, former assistant coach of Trinidad and Tobago's football team, has been appointed as scout advisor of Bahrain's national World Cup team. The President of the General Organisation for Youth and Sports (Goys), Shaikh Fawaz bin Mohammed Al Khalifa, told Bahrain Tribune that he has made a lucrative offer to Nakhid which he could not refuse. Shaikh Fawaz also made it clear to the Bahrain Football Association (BFA) that they have an open budget for their final campaign to  World Cup 2006 and that they must do everything in their power to overcome Trinidad & Tobago at all cost. Bahrain will take on Trinidad and Tobago in a two-legged playoff matches on November 12 and 16. The first leg will be played in Trinidad and Tobago and the second leg in Bahrain.
When contacted in Zurich on Monday evening, FIFA Vice President Jack Warner confirmed that the talk in Zurich is all about Nakhid's treachery which has caused him to hang his head in shame.
“For 30 pieces of silver, T&T has been sold out ! ! ! .This makes what Jamaica has done look guiltless,” Warner told TTFF Media. He promised that in spite of all these unfortunate occurrences, that all will be in place to ensure that the T&T team is fully in tune for the matches on November 12 and 16 against the Asian opponent.
Warner will be in Bahrain on Tuesday. He is being accompanied by General Secretary of the TTFF, Richard Groden and Team Administrator, George Joseph. Meanwhile Bahrain is playing a match against Panama in Bahrain on Thursday for a match which Bahrain has paid all Panama's expenses including a match fee of some $500,000 USD, it has been reported.

After the 10 games I woulda thunder her so much she woulda forget about Nakhid and only bawl for me Naked!! Mwahahaah.  :rotfl:

Then Nakhid would have been banned from coming here again, while his same "female acquintance" would ban with me and the local forumites, we woulda link she friends and have a great football training day, every day!! hahahahah Nakhid lucky I eh find she yes, plus if she was ugly, KND 2 and Panty Stinker and them woulda take she still.

Does this forum owe Nakhid an apology because of the many things said about him since his TV6 interview and alleged firing?  He has now come forward with his version of the story and like everything else unless you hear from both parties it is very difficuult to draw a conclusion like some have in this forum. 



I agree that thetiming is suspect and considering what is at stake, their is an opportunity for him to provide info.  But, let me play devils advocate.  As many have argued before, is he suppose to stay unemployed?  How will he feed his wife and children?  Don Leo stood up for his country man (as it relate to the alleged incident), why is David's version untrue.  Again, lets not take this personal, this is football, and I guarantee you David and Mr. Warner are still best of friends.


NC I hope this answers your questions and alleviates your fears.

Nakhid 4king low he real low. Right now he could pick pumpkin with a rod fuss he low. PUNK BITCH

Title: Former captain of Trinidad offers to help national team
Post by: whayuhsay on October 24, 2005, 04:55:51 PM
Not sure if it's been posted already, from the "Voice of Bahrain"...

http://www.gulf-daily-news.com/Story.asp?Article=125063&Sn=SPOR&IssueID=28217

Former captain of Trinidad offers to help national team 

CONTROVERSIAL former captain and assistant coach of Trinidad and Tobago David Nakhid is believed to be in Bahrain and offering his services to the national team ahead of their World Cup playoff clash against the Caribbean side.

Nakhid was sacked by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation after he suggested some members of the Syrian community were involved in drug trade and questioned why they were not being charged in a television interview on CCN TV6's Morning Edition.

But none of the Bahrain Football Association officials were ready to comment on the matter.

However, it is believed that Nakhid will be providing Bahrain with video tapes of matches involving Trinidad in the Concacaf qualifying round and also hold a seminar to brief the national team coaching staff of the conditions in Port-of-Spain in general and about the Trinidad team in particular.

Nakhid, 41, won two National Championships and Domestic Cups with Grasshopper FC of Switzerland and was the two-time Most Valuable Player for Belgian first division club Waregem.

The former midfielder also won three league championships and three Cups with Al Ansar of Lebanon apart from being voted Caribbean Player of the year in 1993.

He was also voted Player of the Year in Lebanon for two successive years and in 2005 Nakhid was inducted into the American University Hall of Fame.

did you take a class to talk shit or iz it just natural



its mostly natural  ;D

(no need to offend me man... I've been nothing but cool with you guys)

But I read in an interview with Nakhid

"I am lebanese and played with AL Ansar in Lebanon, then I moved to the US to study, and I played for the university... there my name became big, and I played for European teams from 89-97. In 1994 I became captain of Trinidad after I got Trinidadian citizen ship in 1997 I became an assistant manager for the Trinidad national team. In 2000 I went back to my homeland Lebanon to play and train the team Almubra and I have been in my original country lebanon since"

Thats an interview with him ... so don't act like a fool when someone asks a question... just answer it if you want... if not then have the decency not to comment about it

That info is incorrect.

Nak.and his family are from TT...his ancestry is Lebanese. He was born in TT and played highschool football there.

He got honorary Lebanese citizenship in the mid 90s.

That also is wrong VB. I went toschool with all Nakhids, brothers. Nakhid is what we ccall in T&T, a red-nigger. He has no arabic ancestry whatsoever. His wife is labanese and so are his children. Nakhid is a pure, unadulterated red-nigger.

But I love T&T so much that they have no amount of money that could make me do what Nakid do... Especially a man who not only represent T&T at the highest level in football, but captain the team on more than one occasion. If ah vex with Beenie, Latas, Jack etc: ah could never sell out mih country...

Now the tapes story and he female acquaintance....................Mind Nahkid wasnt doing this wuk long time and the Dutchmen ketch him and oppose him. So he may have been forced to take infront, before front take him.

I just sad anytime things going good we does 4cup a scene.

But small ting every 4cup scene this campaign turn out good.

Also I cyar vouch for Nahkid and I ent know the man money situation.........but I really doe think he so hard up for money that he go turn against his own country like that. They must be pelt wind behind him.....but I guess everybody have a price.

NC you must be a family member.

I have always looked up to Nakhid since we played for the same university but you have to admit that even if this were legit, the timing is awful.

Let's see how long his stint as coach lasts.

I did mention in my previous post that the timing was bad ... under what grounds was he to refuse the job.  Everyone in our effort to get to Germany is putting money first, why should he be different?  By the way I am not a family member.

Post by: Touches on October 24, 2005, 08:17:32 PM
I going and play Sherlock Hemlock here.......plenty thing in this article have me thinking so I want to raise a few points. Also we hadda take the writers use of language and credibility into context. Also Nahkid and his ways is also something to think about.

Quote
"I have had no discussion with any member of the Bahrain national team. Everything that has been written is just speculation by the Bahraini press."
..........ok fair enough, you ent talk to them yet.

Quote
Nakhid claimed that he received a courtesy call by a Bahraini scout, on October 15, congratulating him on his role with the national squad. He insisted that there was nothing unusual about the gesture since he was well known in the Middle East because of his playing career in Lebanon.
.................So this scout, is of Bahranian citizenship working for another club? He is the offical country scout whats he story and why he would be congratulating you so.Considering its his country you have to play in 3 weeks time .Sounding like he cooking up something. Also why Nahkid must defend the fact that he get the call and say its nothing unusual.......does that mean you get other calls from other Middle Eastern countries or You get calls regularly and it happen before.

Quote
He told the official that he was no longer employed by the T&TFF and, two hours later, he allegedly received an e-mail from the Bahrain Minister of Sport, which offered him the role of national youth coach. Nakhid said that the Bahraini minister was a fellow American University past pupil who had kept abreast of his career.
....................So this same official is a Bahrain scout and yuh tell him yuh need a wuk? Very interesting isn't it and then you get a email from the equivalent of Roger Boynes and they offering you national youth coach. Ent Bahrain have money? why they go hire you? what makes you so special that they had to keep abreast of your little player/coach career.
Quote
He insisted that he was never asked to provide a dossier on the Trinidad and Tobago team.
.....Come now we is big people, yuh feel when a gyul want to give yuh the brush she does always come out and arks yuh. It is what is implied or the movements.

Quote
Nakhid also dismissed reports in the Trinidad and Tobago media that the Bahraini players were promised US $1 million and a Mercedes Benz each if they booked a place at the 2006 World Cup and claimed the story was met with anger in the Asian country. Like Trinidad and Tobago, Bahrain have never qualified for a Fifa senior tournament.
.........How you know that? Unless yuh talk to a Bahrani official.

Quote
"There is a misconception that countries like Bahrain have money throwing around," said Nakhid. "That is real stupidness. The fact is the (Bahrain) players don't make more than a thousand Dinars a game (US$2,652.00). So the Trinidad players actually make more."
.......How you know that? You actually know the Bahrani players wages and pay scale. Maybe paying a all expense trip for the Panama side and 500,000 and passing 1,000,000 to Jamaica ent no money but still would a poor nation do this...Come now David yuh ent fooling we.

Quote
Nakhid spoke to the Trinidad Express from Bahrain where he has already began putting things in place for his new role, which officially commences at the end of their qualifying campaign.
......Yuh didnt have nuttin more than a suitcase here or wha. How yuh reach up there so fast like a eager beaver! Ent yuh now get fired, ent yuh now get a call, ent yuh now get the email.

Quote
He again insisted that his split from the T&TFF was due to a dispute with assistant national coach Whim Rhizerburg-who, like head coach Leo Beenhakker, is Dutch-and not because of comments aired on the TV6 Morning Edition regarding "some members of the Syrian community, who are allegedly involved in the drug trade".
..........So if is Rhizerburg yuh vex with why turn yuh back on the 22 men that yuh eat sleep train and play with and guide like brothers. If is blows alyuh nearly come to why yuh didnt you just blow him out and cool it and hush yuh mouth after.

Also he say he have no issues with Warner or Beenie, Just Whimsberg........so it looking like yuh was just waiting for a excuse to pick up and run.

Fellas it seems Bahrain plant a mole in we midst, they suss him out and know he look like the vulnerable one who go crack.

Also David why did you have a friend of yours go looking for tapes at the various media houses? I know you want to watch the warriors as you wasnt present in some games as they send you to scout, but still.

They say yuh does judge a man by the company he keeps......right now yuh up under the enemy.

I hope that the TTFF checked and rechecked their sources, because if it is not true then it will be embarrassingly painful for everyone involved.   In any event,it seems reasonable to assume that the various persons contacted saw the same female acquaintance and more than one person knew for sure that she is an acquaintance of Nakhid.   It is hard to believe that Nakhid would sink that low and at this time in the history of the TTFF.  A truly sad story  … .

Shouldn't Nakhid have had all those tapes and DVD in his possession already?

 Ali Baba : "Mr Nakhid, first let me say welcome to Bahrain"
Nakhid: "Thankyou Ali"
Ali Baba: " Mr Nakhid some people in Trinidad are saying you are a traitor, in fact everybody is saying that even here in Bahrain, how do you respond?"
Nakhid (Smiling and scratcthing under his arm)= " Well Ali, ah doh care about dem, ah geh ah offer of a lifetime here an ah cud not refuse it"
Ali=" So you don't care about public sentiment in Trinidad?
Nakhid (Now scratching his balls)= " No , of course not!"
Ali Baba=" Well Mr Nakhid enough said about that. What will you be bringing to Bahrain football?"
Nakhid (Now fidgeting in his seat)= " I am the best the world has ever porduced as far as football is concerned, I have played this game all over the world, I have made jail fuh this sport, been bullered in ah lebanese prison, fight with QRC man an have ah wife an 2 camel "
Ali Baba= " Mr Nakhid very impressive credentials, and on behalf of all Bahraini's at home and abroad, I say a sincere wellcome to you"
Nakhid (Now off his seat, twisting his body and sweating heavily) = " Ali, wha allyuh have fuh Bahraini camel crabs?"

So folks it is out , Nakhid went to Bahrain to get buggered by camels.

Hi guys,

I am from Bahrain

And the reason I am here is because I am very confused about this Nakhid issue.
Bahraini's think he's a spy. You think he's a traitor.
You say that he is an advisor to the world cup team, we hear hes the coach for under 20 and he is banned from attending any men team training.
In your news papers he says he wishes for T&T to win
in our news papers he says that he was treated badly by T&T and wants us to win

???????????

I don't trust this Nakhid and I don't know what is the truth anymore.

I just doubt nahkid that stupid.  either way we need to keep our focus, watch the tapes LEo get of Bahrain(maybe he send a woman to get their footage) handle we own biz.

Why, why? why?

This is worse than some cowboys selling guns to de apache indians!!

this is the height of treason!!

he probably knew all along after the panama game that he was going to get fired, so he waited to see what would take place with respect to the Uzbekestan/Bahrain clash, plus our match with mexico!!

He more than just sold us out.  He betraying a whole nation for the sake of a personal grudge!! 

At least with Judas, Jesus had to die in order for us to be saved.

but this thing with Nahkid is totally different, he is the ultimate traitor.  Just as how people doh name their children Judas, people in Trinidad should not name their children David!!

I hope he hangs himself on ah tree!!

All you folks that talking about Nakhid, must hate them coaches that coaching another national team and beating the squad he once was a senior member on. In today's post modern world it is quite acceptable for a former employeee to go work for the competition. So folks leave David alone, and talk only about our trip to Germany.

If Bahrain have some other motive for hiring Nakhid that's their business, and if David want to work for them so be it. It is clear that David gave his best to T&T over the years as a player, and has assisted several T&T players on occasion.

Mr. Warner needs to settle down a little and focus on the game that gave him his status, and leave this BS alone. At this time T&T football needs a leader. Mr Warner, you have taken Trinidad football to places folks my age (44) couldn't imagine it being, please don't mess it up now - leave David and negativity alone, and work towards inspiring our present warriors so that you can finally realize the fruits of your labour.

If Trinidad lose against Bahrain it won't be because of what David is being accused of, or may have done, it will be because our players didn't step up. Nakhid could show them any kind of tapes - at the end of the day if our Soca Warriors don't play well - we guh lose. As a matter of fact let's all send our tapes to the Bahrain FA, so when we beat them the victory guh be sweeter.

Share your thoughts.

wait hold on if nahkid really want tpaes of TT games.  why would he ask a guyl to go beg TV reporters and then go to TTFF and ask for tapes.  if he doing some underhand thing, to do it that way would be plain dotish.  
Would think he have other sources for that info, if not tapes of the games in his own possesion already.  

Good point - Nakhid has to have a pile of tapes in his possession, I know National pool players that have tapes, so David will have to be stupid , and history has proven that his is not. Jack Warner on the other hand has a history of bad mouthing folks that rub him the wrong way -Latapy, Yorke, St. Clair, the present Government, and now Nakhid.
Don't pay any attention to Mr Warner's bad timing. Focus on Germany
Later

Title: Letter to Mr David Nakhid
Post by: Trini on October 25, 2005, 10:33:19 AM
Allyuh know I is a man who only trying to tell allyuh focus on the T&T preparation and the good things that has happened over te last 2-3 weeks for us. Forget about Guatemala, Panama, Jamaica, Training camp etc etc, everybody have to do what them have to do, we born by weself, and when we are successful, we could stand up proud and say we earned this prize.
But this is the one thing ah feel strongly about.

I have no doubt that this whole Bahrain -Nakhid scenario is a tactic being used by bahrain to rile us up, but for Nakhid not to realise he is the jackass pawn in this whole situation is really shameful.

For a man like Nakhid who was so close to the team up to 2 weeks ago to come and do that now, that is nothing short of f**kery.
Even if the man telling the thruth and really will be only working with hte U-20 after the WC campaign, as a man yuh supposed to have morals and a lill f**king common sense.
I guess diplomacy is not one of his strong points.
If it was really a good offer, and I understand he have to feed his family, the right thing to do is tell Bahrain ok, I will accept, but I will only come to Bahrain after Nov 16.
The inevitable impressions of going to Bahrain anytime before, especially amidst all the rumours surrounding his firing and vexation with the TTFF would have been appeased by just simply taking up the post AFTER NOV 16.
Why go to Bahrain now and cause this dramas?
Looking for houses, settling down etc etc could have easily been done after the return game.
Is Bahrain in a rush to have him start so? When is their U-20 qualifying starting? Nov 23?
As a man, yuh real do assness dey.
All that time yuh live away yuh never learn anything about class and diplomacy.
I will be surprised if you ever hear about the term "conflict of interest".

But you are David Nakhid, a man who always telling people you do what you want and what you feel is right.
I know part of being played and manipulated like a punk by Bahrain, is also your desire to show T&TFF and the coaches etc that u are a big man and can do what you want, and there is a demand for you.
But f**king think nah man.
If you really had to go and somehow accept or sign the BFF offer now, and they putting that pressure on you, then they just confirm to me that they just signing u to cause conflict or try to get info from you.
If they could not wait till after the Nov 16 game, then u think they really want u. If u were quality, they would wait ages for you, whenever you were available.

But nah, you gone and run Bahrain, like a scorned girlfriend, who get dump, and now trying to f**k with your ex best friend, just to send a message.

Yuh real get on dey.
Just as you proud and always say u like to do what you want, always putting yourself first, good, I happy for you.

Ah just hope if yuh ever come back T&T, you dont dig a horrors when john public DO WHAT THEY WANT AND WHAT THEY FEEL IS RIGHT launch some bottle in yuh head.
Yuh reap what yuh sow.

Neither way woulda work!!

Imagine after de 16th.. clear outta de blue Nakhid get a big wuk coaching in Bahrain... imagine de fall out with tha one... "How de hell he get da work?" all de conspiracy talk woulda start up same way.... " HE sell we out!" etc etc....

De right ting to do woulda be to say "thanks but no thanks... now is not de time to discuss this... you are trying to use me for your own purposes and gain. I will never allow myself to be used in such a way, especially against my own birthland... Sorry again"

Not liking Jack or not trusting him have absolutely nothing to do with Nakhid.

You think Nakhid coulda been in the coaching staff as a assistant coach or scout and in the locker room hearing the coach's plans and how he thinks and how he makes subs and how he wants the team to play and do what he do if he was from Columbia?

Then going to and then gettin hired by Peru 3 weeks before Columbia play then claiming he will be their under 20 coach even though the man have absolutely no experience.
If Columbia did lost that game, Nakhid would be lucky if they only cripple him.

He wouldn't be that crazy.

This is not about Jack or anyone else, if he had any respect for his fellow peers and as a former Captain he would see that it was inappropriate. After all Jack didn't even say anything about him it was his dumb ass who went on television talking about Serians. He set up he own downfall. He orchestrate the whole thing by putting the TTFF in a position to have to fire him at a time when they were asking for the business community and people of TnT to fully support the team.
Going on TV and saying that stuff was planned by Nakhid. That is obvious. They askin him on tv about football and he want to talk about drugs and Serians that fella sick and wanted to be fired.

Gosh man it really that simple yuh know.

Wha Nakhid do is jes low and underhanded and the fact the man try to pull the wool over we eyes by saying is under 21.

The lesser of two evils is whats being discussed?

Jack has gotten his fair share of criticism, but there is no doubting his allegiance to Trinidadian football.
There is not a living man, that has done more for trinidadian football off the pitch than Jack.
Year after year, he is there, not just when we are close to qualifying, he is there throughout.

Yes, he may use his platform for personal profit... Period!
However, I believe he would never do that ahead of T&T football.
It would have been so easy for him to forget Trinidad and our football, climb on top of his high horse and focus on his duties with FIFA. But no he has a dream... and I for one say thank you Jack.

Nahkid just by him being associated with Bahrain is unpatriotic, I cannot deny a man his right to make a living, but if I could I would deny him all rights reserved for citizens of Trinidad and Tobago. I would deny his entry onto our shores for perpetuity.

Yes it is true that Nahkid is one of our country's most decorated footballers, but there is correllation between his efforts on the field and his sense of nationalism. Its clear that while executing his god given abilities on the pitch he was being fueled solely by his physical attributes and not by what is required by a true champion.... who is fueled by his heart.

Thats my two cents, like it or not, thats your right!

I never said i was calling for his head. All im saying is how can we forgive him for what he has done when the evidence that he is playing traitor is on the table in front of us. Nakhid has a problem, he has just turned against his own country 3 weeks before the most important game in our football history and decided to work for the enemy. That is wrong it shows all he cares about is himself and not his country. His country should be first, money and job second.
I think Nakhid should lose his citizenship and have to beg bahrain to make him a citizen cause he better not come back to Trinidad. I'm sure they have people gunning for him. I could care less what he does with his life.
I think he is a jackass and a traitor.

Tell me, what's the difference when Lattapy turned the country down earlier in the campaign. Wasn't he looking after his personal interest. If he came on the team then, who knows we will not be talking this stupidness today. We will be making Germany arrangements all now.

Nobody expects avid to run and hide or to praise Jack, but doh compare Latas to Nahkid, Although Latas first said know, he did not go and Join the coaching staff of CR, Mex, Guatemala, USA or Mex... It may not necessarily be acase of bad judgement, because we don't know the whole story, but it is definitely a case of bad timing. That said, unless you know more about the situation than what has been in the news, I say we leave this topic alone, until all the cards are on the table, instead of speculating who really did what. Nahkid is innocent until proven otherwise, but so far things don't look in his favour.

David brings no immediate football value to those guys, other than the creation of hysteria, and he didn't do that, TTFF did. I'm sure they already have all tapes of our games and scouts reports by their people.

The game goes before and beyond 90 minutes, the sooner Jack and the TTFF realize this the further we will reach in the game.

What you say!!

Allways had a problem understanding why this person made a bigger contribution than that person (like the anus and brain debate).... it took a lot of teamwork and contributions on all sides to reach this far.. Now we're here and people want to hog the glory... c'mon guys there's enough glory for everybody... i repeat EVERYBODY.....(talk about greedy kids).....  Nakhid did his part, jack did his part.... but that's past.... is all about WC06 now... the players now have to step up.... jeez, i have an uncle who live an die football in TNT on and off the field.... let people create their confusion, lord knows they work hard for their profit be it short or long term.  :chilling:

Jack

I have to agree with this. Jack for all he has done for T&T is largely responsible for most of our problems in the structure of T&T Football as well. He is also responsible for alienating many a person who could contribute in a positive manner to T&T Football. Including Yorke and Latapy in the earlies of the campaign.

The main Factor

Jack getting another 1/2 place for CONCACAF is not an issue. The present players and staff placed T&T in a situation where they have a shot at qualification. Before it was three place and we failed to place ourselves in a situation to qualify. So it did not matter if it was 3 or 2 places up for grabs. In short you still have to do the business on the field.

David

You are right David needs a job??? after being fired, so he was approached by Bahrain. A huge coincidence but lets give David the benefit of the doubt. Are you saying he could not stipulate that he was not available to take up the post (as U20 coach) until after November 30th (for obvious reasons). Do you not find it very strange that we talking days after his release???

Latas

Now Latapy. He stated from the onset that he was not interested in joining the squad (for what ever reason), but I applaud Latapy's decision simply because he changed his mind when all looked very bleek indeed for the National Squad to qualify. Basically he came in when the squads' back was against the wall. If  he had agreed to join after the Mexico game, for the Bahrain games, I would agree with you, but it was not so.

I not getting into this madness because it has nothing to with Bahrain but ...

This is an argument that I do not get. He has the potential to help Bahrain immensely because he knows the inner workings of our team and what our coaches like to do. If there was no value in this then team talks would be open to the public and we would get a transcript of team strategy for every game. What you see on the field does not tell the whole story of what a team was trying to do or is capable of doing. It also does not show all of a team's weaknesses.

David brings no immediate football value to those guys, other than the creation of hysteria,

For this reason alone he should have held off for another month.

I not going to cuss the man or say bad things about him because this is Trinidad and in four years time he and Mr. Warner will be friends again and working together. That is hjust how it go but he could have handled this situation much better.

You sounding like Darien or Darren. The only people benifitting from football. Simple is a lover of rightousness first, T&T second and football third. I wish if you take the personality (Nakhid) out of the issue and deal with the facts. Yes Jack bailed him out, but that don't mean he can screw him now.

Each issue Nakhid is involved with is coming to the rescue of people. Remember the oppression of the Africans in Lebonon, the issue for increased fees in the gold cup and now crime in the country. I will fault him for his statement targeting Syrians (which is true), but we cannot opress him for its intent.

People,
This is a new subscriber coming to the defense of David Nakhid. What de hell de man did wrong. He was unceremonously fired by Jack and his cronies, and Baharain saw it fit to utilize his services.

Tell me, what's the difference when Lattapy turned the country down earlier in the campaign. Wasn't he looking after his personal interest. If he came on the team then, who knows we will not be talking this stupidness today. We will be making Germany arrangements all now.

What you say!!!!
Latapy turning down T&T is completely different...Latapy playin national football for ...yuh could say most of his 38 years...the man at that time wanted to retire...i not accusing nakhid of anything because he has made a tremendous contribution to T&T football also....but the cases are different...Latapy is 38 years and as a footballer from the time you cross 30 most ppl does look to retire, Latapy considered it and did retire...However he is back and that is all that matters...he is here when we need him...Nakhid's issue is one of Greater magnitude...If he betrays us it could mean disaster for the entire country...but currently do not know if he is a Traitor and i still look at him as David Nakhid a great player for T&T (of course if he is proven to be a traitor i will lose all respect for him because i think that is the worst form of betrayal a person could commit (Treason)).....Go T&T

Thanks to Nakhid players representing T&T getting more money per cap. But at the expense of it, he was fired from the team. I read sometime back (when Leo was first hired) that he use to coach Mexico. Now look he coaching T&T. It's all about business. And seeing that Jack got the extra spots, what if that same thing had applied to all regions, where would we be?
Not one of you can logically say what David Nakhid has done wrong. Other than all the block talk. Remember 1989 who was the worse person that sold out to the Americans? How short a memory we have.

Friday 28th October, 2005.


The Bahrain Tribune reported last night that the national team's coach ,Luka Peruzovic, "refused to deal positively with the former assistant coach of Trinidad and Tobago, David Nakhid".

Peruvic, who sat with Nakhid for only half and hour since he arrived in Bahrain, said "he did not trust Nakhid and he does not need his help".

Nakhid, recently fired from his role as a scout for the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation(TTFF), has reportedly taken up a post as coach of the Bahrain under-20 squad.

David Nakhid: Bahrain must wait.
By: Nigel Simon (Guardian).


Axed T&T assistant coach, David Nakhid, said yesterday he will be taking legal action against the T&T Football Federation, the Local Organising Committee (LOC) and a local newspaper for what he claims were libellous statements against him.
Pointing out that any arrangement with Bahrain would have to wait until the November 16 match, Nakhid sought to give his side of the story at a press conference at the Hilton Trinidad yesterday.
Nakhid shot into the headlines when he was accused by the T&TFF of making racist statements towards the Syrian Community on a morning talk show two weeks ago.
The T&TFF then issued a press release distancing itself from Nakhid’s comments and of his dismissal as a scout for the T&T team.
In response yesterday, Nakhid said his firing from the T&TFF had nothing to do with his comments made on the television, which he said was not racist intent.
Instead, he said it may have stemmed from a quarrel with one of the assistant coaches from Holland.
“After our argument which climaxed into a good cuss-out between two big men, I was not spoken to again by head coach, Leo Beenhakker, who is also from Holland.”
Nakhid also referred to an article released by the T&TFF, which alleged that he was un-earthed as a spy for Bahrain.
Armed with documents and photo-copies of e-mails between himself and the Bahrain Football Federation and of conversations with Jack Warner, Nakhid said he was in Lebanon when he was offered the job to coach the Bahrain Under-20 team.
He said he was asked to forward his proposal which he did.
Nakhid explained that he made it clear that he wanted nothing to do with their team until after the second-leg match on November 16 between T&T and Bahrain.
Nakhid said that contrary to reports, he never spoke to the Bahrain national coach.
He said the Bahrainis were up to tricks and had seized the opportunity to try and destablise the T&T team which, he said, was fuelled by Warner and the T&TFF comments.
Asked if he had spoken to Warner since he was fired from the Warriors, Nakhid said that he e-mailed Warner prior to his arrival in Bahrain, asking to meet with him.
“He responded by saying that he would have been in Bahrain by the Wednesday.
“I was looking forward to meeting with him to end the bickering, but it then became apparent that I would not be able to speak with him.”
Nakhid also felt that he saw nothing wrong with his timing to visit the Asian country.
“Why was it wrong?” he asked. “I was offered a job and I was unemployed. All this was done over the telephone and via e-mail.”
Nakhid, who was player/coach of Lebanese club Al Mabara, prior to taking up the job as an assistant coach under Bertille St Clair and then Beenhakker said:
“Over the last six or seven months I have given up my post at Al Mabara to the assistant coach. So when the Bahrain offer came, I saw it as an interesting one.”
Nakhid said he was in Bahrain to also meet with the directors of some of the clubs.
“Bahrain is in transition and I want to be part of that experience once given the chance.
“My presence in Bahrain should not have been a big deal and should have had no big effect on the public, but Warner and the T&TFF made it.”
With respect to the matches between Bahrain and T&T, Nakhid said:
“It’s all about football, so let us keep things in perspective.”
He said he called the press conference to clear his name.
“I have given my country 24 years as a player, coach, scout... you name it.”
Asked if he had sent tapes of the T&T team to Bahrain, Nakhid said:
“ I sent 10 tapes of the Guatemala game with the knowledge of our T&TFF and coach Beenhakker.”
The outspoken former T&T player, who boasted about his past where he stood up for the rights of previous team-mates, added: “This has also had an impact on my family.
“I had been through this in 1989 and to have the T&TFF tarnish my reputation again its not right,” ended Nakhid.

This man is a loose canon.

He is already setting up himself to be fired before he even start working with the BFA.  I'd be surprised if they believe he is worth the trouble.  He come with a second racist attack. 
And he want people to believe is Whim that is the racist one.  GET SERIOUS.  The more of that bust up that comes out the more it become clear he was being disrespectful/abusive to the woman and who will doubt it with his crass behaviour of late.

Title: Nakhid kicks back
Post by: Trini _2026 on October 31, 2005, 10:08:32 PM
size=10pt]Nakhid kicks back

Lasana Liburd [/size]

Former Trinidad and Tobago national football captain David Nakhid has never been one to shy away from a confrontation.

And yesterday, in a press conference at the Trinidad Hilton's Savannah Lounge, Nakhid kicked out at suggestions from Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) special advisor and FIFA vice-president Jack Warner that he betrayed his country by trying to sabotage their 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign.

The press conference was designed to "clear up the issues that have been raging over the past few weeks".

Nakhid stands accused of spying on his homeland for Bahrain.

Warner insisted unnamed sources confirmed that Nakhid offered to help Bahrain defeat Trinidad and Tobago in their two-legged World Cup Play-Off on November 12 and 16.

Total Football executive producer Sunity Maharaj, Channel Four presenter Ruskin Mark and T&TFF press officer Shaun Fuentes revealed that Nakhid, through a "close female friend", attempted to acquire footage of the national squad after he was relieved of his duties with the team.

A recent report in the Bahrain Tribute also suggested that Nakhid met with Bahrain senior team coach Luka Peruzovic who, after a half hour discussion, declared "he did not trust Nakhid and does not need his help".

Nakhid remained defiant. He believes the Belgium-born Bahraini coach was misquoted.

"I cannot imagine him having ever said that since I never met him," said Nakhid.

Likewise, Nakhid denied trying to attain video footage after he was fired by the T&TFF.

He offered a dozen e-mails in his defence. In chronological order, the correspondence began with his letter of termination from Warner, to the BFA's approach (through technical director Mahmood Fakhra) on its official letterhead promising to confirm his appointment as national under-20 team coach on November 16-one day after Bahrain's second and final play-off fixture against T&T.

"This basically refutes all the claims of the T&TFF," said Nakhid, "that I had planned to go to Bahrain before and I planned to take up a job with the national team."

He also produced an e-mail from Fakhra, addressed to national team manager Bruce Aansenen, which requested a video tape of T&T's 2-1 win over Mexico and reminded the T&TFF that they were provided with a tape of Bahrain's last qualifying fixture against Uzbekistan.

Another e-mail showed that Fakhra requested ten Trinidad and Tobago qualifying matches from a German media company.

Nakhid explained that this e-mail proved that the BFA did not need his help to get footage of the national team and assured the public that it was normal for competing technical staffs to exchange such intelligence.

"Why they would ask me or any female acquaintance of mine to procure tapes," said Nakhid, "after they already received ten tapes from a German media company, I would like the media houses to explain."

The e-mails could not capture the entire negotiation process, though. By Nakhid's own admission, much of their discussion was done by telephone while he did travel to Bahrain although, he explained, this was only to better appreciate his duties as a future national youth coach.

It is as difficult to prove Nakhid's innocence as it is his guilt in the first place.

However, no sooner had Nakhid poked at the largely circumstantial evidence which tried him, he launched into a flurry of theories aimed at Warner.

He accused his former boss of waging a campaign against him to avoid his row with national assistant coach Wim Rijsbergen in Panama on October 7-which, he claimed, had racial undertones-from becoming public knowledge.

Nakhid insisted that Warner preferred to focus negatively on his comments on CCN TV6's Morning Edition programme about "some members of the Syrian community, who are allegedly involved in the drug trade" to "curry favour" with the affluent in society and, in particular, the owners of certain media houses for his own political ends.

"I have noticed that since (Warner) came out in defence, as most house Negroes do in defending their master, of the Syrian community," said Nakhid, "he is in every front page of the Guardian and in every newscast of CNC3 and that is not coincidence."

Nakhid promised to take legal action against the 2006 Local Organising Committee (LOC), the T&TFF and Newsday for slander.

He plans to file suit on November 16-the same day the BFA will confirm whether they still want his services and when either Trinidad and Tobago or Bahrain will be engulfed in celebrating their qualification to the Germany World Cup.

November 16Â may decide whether Nakhid's involvement with the BFA becomes local folklore (like November 19, 1989) or is soon forgotten (like the resignations of Dwight Yorke and Russell Latapy in 2001).

 After reading the story I thing he set the story straight,

The fact that he is not linking up with Bahrain until after the 16th is a good point.

Also with regard to the Syrian comment.

There is nothing wrong with that comment because it is a common place statement in TnT and he make a good points that the Drug Gang men do not have boats and planes etc

definetly nothing to get fired for



New edition

Nakhid recreates himself

Lasana Liburd


Wednesday, November 2nd 2005
 
 
 
David Nakhid at Monday's news conference at the Hilton Trinidad.

Lasana Liburd looks at former national footballer David Nakhid, now turned "political animal".


At 41, David Nakhid's international football career is beyond resuscitation while his bitter split from the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) renders implausible any notion of a return as national coach.

As such, Nakhid's press conference on Monday, which sought to refute claims that he helped the Bahrain Football Association (BFA) plot against Trinidad and Tobago, was possibly the last in the land of his birth. It was a matter of salvaging what remained of his reputation before sailing off into obscurity. Or was it?

Nakhid laughed off the suggestion that he was preparing his epitaph as a person of national interest.

"Somebody going to kill me or what?" he joked. "I am not leaving Trinidad and Tobago."

The question of one's legacy may be considered relevant for an athlete or politician on the verge of retirement. Nakhid does not seem to see himself in such a vulnerable position. He does not intend to step out of the forefront and cannot fathom why the Trinidad and Tobago public would wish him to do so.

At the start of Monday's press conference, held at Hilton Trinidad, Nakhid took out a wad of printed e-mail messages and laid them on the head table as carefully as he set down cones for national coach Leo Beenhakker, three weeks ago.

Perhaps it was a defining moment of the hour-long meeting. Nakhid, in front of the media, was morphing from an athlete to a politician.

It was Nakhid who began the morning on trial. Before lunch, everyone else worth mentioning was in the dock instead.

How many athletes have the gumption to propose a debate with politicians on issues like crime or the gall to declare themselves cleverer than an experienced trade union leader?

If Nakhid impressed football fans with his passing range as a player, his volleying range as an orator was not to be sniffed at either.

"I will speak out against crime because I am a concerned citizen," said Nakhid. "And no one has the right to feel they can silence me. As a matter of fact, bring it to a debate. Let me know why you think certain members of a society should not be investigated

"I am not making a statement perhaps like (PSA president) Jennifer Baptiste (Primus) made (when she said) 'let's take back the town from the Syrians'. She has judged there. I am saying investigate because it is something that is

of concern to all of us."

He expounded his theories for arresting the problems in Trinidad and Tobago, which he suggested were inequity in society end economic oppression.

He also knocked the recent "Death March", which was staged in Port of Spain on October 22, for having selfish motives and targeting the crime problem from the wrong end.

"This death march represents just getting security for the rich," said Nakhid. "Stephen Cadiz is talking about gang members... They are gang members because someone is giving them things they have to push or defend. They don't have the planes or ships to bring drugs or guns We need to follow that paper trail."

Anyone who thought that Nakhid's comments-three weeks ago on the TV6 Morning Edition programme-about the alleged involvement of "some members of the Syrian community" in the drug trade were a momentary slip of the tongue were mistaken.

Nakhid, who often tackled the administration on behalf of his colleagues as a player, saw himself as a champion of the people. And, he claimed, the people appreciated his role.

"I am asking the questions that most of the people with the national interest at heart want to ask," he said. "But we see what happens when you ask questions like that in this country especially against certain communities You get targeted. I can deal with that but answer the questions

"I don't need to be in politics to serve the country politically. I am a political animal anyhow you take it and so should all of us be."

Nakhid is not the first to step from the sporting to the political arena.

CLR James did so as a journalist, Wendell Mottley and Learie Constantine as athletes and Alloy Lequay and Jack Warner as administrators.

At some juncture, the public will decide whether Nakhid has the authority to speak on their behalf or if they believe his sincerity at all.

Nakhid, a former Trinidad and Tobago and Caribbean footballer of the year, lived abroad for the majority of his adult life, from the United States to Switzerland, Greece and Lebanon, while he may soon reside in Bahrain.

But he was confident in his assessment of T&T's society. He warned the business community of the supposed errors of their ways.

"You can build the walls how high and you can retreat to the mountains how far," he said. "There is going to be crime because no one is going to stand back and look at you living a life of luxury while people are suffering

"Jack Warner is not important, what is important is the national interest and the people who want to serve the people of Trinidad and Tobago and not just achieve power for their own ends. And this has been proven against (Warner) and people of his ilk many times before.

"I call on the authorities to investigate any members of any community that have been amassing wealth at the expense of the people of Trinidad and Tobago It is going to come to a head and it is going to fall on your head and that is what is happening."

Nakhid left for Lebanon yesterday evening where he remains until November 16 when he meets with the BFA to discuss his future role with them.

His future in Trinidad and Tobago is anyone's guess.

I think in David’s case we all know he likes to talk and sometimes out of place.  However, I do agree with you KND because he is free to express himself and talk about whatever he feels like (drug talk & Syrians, etc).  I do think the forum in which it was said at the time those statements were made was appropriate.  Moreover, David’s job at that time was all about football and nothing else.

Off the record, in the street, he could talk all the crap he wants.  But in the media, as a representative of TTFF, he had to be more responsible. 

I even more convinced that his (David's) personal convictions and his fall-out with the Dutch coach lead to his dismissal.

Some men on here is real kicks yes... I am like many of you who are disgusted that this kind of uproar have followed the build up to the biggest game in our recent football history. But am I the only person who thinks that Nakhid has a point when he is addressing the problems of TnT.

Maybe I am the only one here who didn't go to a Big school in "Town", the only one here who had to tote water, had no lights, the only one who lived in the poorer neighborhoods... the only one who saw police raids on the houses of neighbors... the only one who has seen the devastation that drugs and crime has wrought... Maybe that might explain why I am also one of the few here who is not to quick to condemn Nakhid, but I am also asking where does the drugs and the guns come from?

Maybe others may ask that same questions as well... Soon... before its too late..

 Truthseeker i unfortunately have experienced similar(not right now), and have seen friends go through what you are talking about  ....I am glad that Nakhid is not a Traitor...I also think he is absolutely right by saying the things he has said...The 'death march' should have called the 'Life march' for my part...The government cannot stop crime; and there are rich individuals in T&T's society who prey on the poor people by providing them with guns and drugs...It is only logical ...the average joe doesn't have the means to bring guns or drugs into the country...so How is it coming in?People who have the means(rich people)... I can't agree with him when he pin-pointed a specific race BUT i think that is not because he is racist but because naturally a arrogant and outspoken person.

The current discourse on drugs is really a one way talk. I agree with Nakhid's assessment that the rich really doesn't give a shit if the killings and the attendant violence were restricted to the hills of Laventille. The problem only becomes a problem when the rich and others aare affected.

Darius Figueria Drug Expert and author of 'Cocaine and Heroin Trafficking in The Caribbean'.  writes some really good article for the Mirror on the whole drug culture in TnT. I advise that nuff men check it out.

Truthseeker i agree with you somewhat. There are issues and problems to be discussed in trinidad. Nakhid should better pick and choose his forum for "calling people out" tho. he can't use his position on a football team to discuss political problems. Obviously that's a "clash of interest" that i am sure beenie wants absolutely nothing to do with. Beenie come there for one thing: to get trinidad to germany. Anything political, him and his staff should stay out of. Nakhid chose a jack-ass time to bring up these issues! Nobody's fault but his............

I have been a Soca warrior fan from when dis team was playing real shit, since the very first days when this site was lauched. I for one will be the first to state that Beenie is the best thing that has happened to our football in ah long time. That said, in the current he say, she say environment, it is hard to determine whois telling the truth.

It appears that Jack Warner have suddenly become the new version of shit sprayed perfume because for all of his years of financial mismanagement of TTFF funds (TV rights.. etc). I suspect that that has less to do with Jack's character and more to do with the fact that we are a playoff win from the grandest stage in football. We here all know that Nakhid is not a saint. We may all agree that within the context of TnT football, it is not the best place, but we cyar say that de man talking shit when it comes to drugs in TnT. We may disagree with his methodology but hard questions requires deep soul searching...

PS: Its funny that we criticise athletes here in the US for being apolotical and say that they should use their platform to help and speak on the behalf of the less fortunate, then we fire bun Nakhid for doing precisely that...

Last thing: Anybody else saw this:

Local Whites, Syrians in
BIG COKE WAR
... cartels fight led to $700m Monos Island drug bust
 
 
A SPITEFUL fall-out between two factions of a local drug syndicate has resulted in tit-for-tat squealing by rival factions.

That, according to a source close to both factions, is what led to Monday’s drug bust on Monos Island that netted 1.75 tonnes of pure cocaine with an estimated street value of $700 million.

A Uzi machine gun, four handguns, two assault rifles and 247 rounds of assorted ammunition were also seized in the raid on a house on the island.
 

Part of the cocaine seizure
packed for shipment.
 

The operation, which was spearheaded by the Coast Guard, also included officers from the Police Western Division, with intelligence support from the Special Anti-Crime Unit of TnT (SAUTT) and later involvement of the Organised Crime and Narcotics Unit (OCNU).

Two Trinidadians, five Venezuelans and an Antiguan were arrested at the house, owned by a member of a prominent business family operating out of the Western Peninsula.

Four days earlier, an even bigger haul of some three tonnes of cocaine was intercepted on a boat off Venezuelan waters in a joint operation between the Venezuelan Coast Guard and the French Navy.

Intelligence reports have traced the intended destination of that shipment to Trinidad.

It is believed that the intended recipient was a Syrian-controlled faction of the powerful local syndicate that is now divided.

The other faction involves a local Portuguese/French Creole bourgeois grouping of business associates.

Individuals from both factions are well-endowed in the various business organisations.

Members of this bourgeois business group allegedly controlled the drug seized on Monos.

TnT Mirror understands that the Syrian drug mafia, which is able to assuage greater sway in the government than the rival faction, was responsible for spilling the beans because it was believed that the rival faction had something to do with the Venezuelan interception of its shipment.

Mirror understands that the seizure resulted in the loss of hundreds of millions of dollars by the Syrian side of the cartel. This loss led to the offended party using its political connections to have the other side of the split cartel suffer a similar fate.

Information was leaked about illegal drug trafficking taking place just a stone’s throw from the Coast Guard Headquarters, resulting in the major drug bust on Monos Island.

Monos is a luxury resort island with private holiday houses owned almost exclusively by well-known business families.

The imminent arrest of high profile persons connected to the Monos drug bust is expected to bring about major shifts in the underground illegal drug trade.

Intelligence reports suggests that the split between both groups had degenerated into a petty real estate dogfight, in which the Syrian-controlled faction was using its closeness to the government to prevent state rental of properties owned by members of the other side.

Cocaine is shipped out of Trinidad to European and North American destinations via air conditioning units, yachts, speedboats and containers.

It is sometimes routed through other Caribbean Islands on which members of the rival groups have a network of business operations.

i remember that article came out rite after the seizure...and whether it true or not with all de drug war talk i cant say....but wat i do kno is that the house down de islands owners are definitely not involved with the drug trade....in fact i was supposed to be at that house on the same day the bust took place.. a lil lime was supposed to happen...but becuz of the bust we didnt go...
the fact is most of the houses down de islands are owned by affluent members of de society..but the houses are mainly used on a weekend...since many of the houses have caretakers who probably are not making much money it is quite easy to accept the easy money to run and store drugs in de house since de owners probably wont find out.
If u tink i talking bull well daz no scene...i jus talking from firsthand experience...fact is i have frenz who have been offered money to make small drops for the same boatmen in their own boats...I really cant blame them for accepting the easy money as the money they making living and takin care of these houses is probably small change

Title: Re: Nakhid Sets the story Straight
Post by: KND on November 02, 2005, 07:26:39 PM
care takers is the scape goat.

If you is a care taker and you buying and sell all that amount of drugs you aint supposed to be no caretaker no more.

You supposed to be able to buy your own house by now.

It is very easy to know who the drug men is

Drug men have money

Do a sort on Bank account
Buying habits
and overseas accounts and business where possible


Start from the man with the most money and audit coming down the line once you can prove where money come from we go move on to the next man.

It have to start with the money men
Caretakers cannot handle big thing so

Post by: truthseeker on November 02, 2005, 07:49:36 PM
Thats what I've been saying: But men will see what they want to see. To attack the drug problem, yuh have to go far deeper than many of us are willing to go. It is all to easy to identify the youths on the streets (and they should also be condemned). But many of these youths are petty dealers compared to the men who possess both the physical infrastructure (boats, planes, mansions) and the political and police connections to rule the trade.

There are many different levels to drug and cartel organisation and in Tnt its no different. There are street soldiers, lieutenants, area dons and lORDS. The higher up the chain the more protected is the individual and in most cases, this person is able to hide behind a cloak of legitimacy (businesses, philanthrophy, politics...) They rarely ever flaunt their wealth in conspicuous ways unlike the foot soldiers who loves the brands, the latest in cars, jewelry etc... This is who the media usually focus on because of their visibility, while the Lord sits on high, sending their sons and daughters to the best colleges that the UK and the USA have to offer. In the meantime, blood monies will be washed, cleansed and baptised...

Post by: truthseeker on November 02, 2005, 09:00:43 PM
I think that Trinidadians are too overly sensitive on racial issues, and sometimes, this bars us from having a frank and honest discussion.

It is a FACT: that drugs affect Black trinidadians in a major major way. probably more so than the other ethnic groups. It is also a FACT that due to the lack off opportunities in the society, along with people's inclination towards greed and materialism, that most of the killings and attendant violence are perpetrated by Black Trinis (and I'm a black man who ent fraid to say it).

It is a FACT that most of the Black Trinis who are involved are involved on the lowest rung of the trade. They are for the most part dealers and soldiers who LACK the infrastructure and connections necessary to create and sustain the trade.

It is not my intention to defend Black or poor Indian drug dealers but an honest analysis has to move us beyond our own narrow way of looking at drugs in TnT.

It is a FACT that powerful Syrian and White families are involved in the drug trade. They however are far removed from the drugs itself and have several layers of protection to ensure their societal legitimacy. This is not Tseeker alone saying that: Darius Fig.. who writes fro the Mirror and is a regional Caribbean expert on the matter has well documented articles on the matter. The DEA also have a report that they print every year and they spoke about Tnt now being the number 1 transhippment point from which drugs and guns enter from Colombia and Venzuela and then hit the USA and European markets...

It is a FACT that these local families are well connected politically (theyhave friends in high places in both parties). They have friends in the intelligence services and police force and they have businesses that they use as a front to wash their dollars.

Are their Black, Indian and Chinese upper class families that are involve and benefit from the trade..Hell yeah!!! And we bun dem out too.

But it seems that weare perfectly willing to do a discourse on drugs as long as we are talking about "dem people" on de hill who graduate from junior sec, and like to fete with de latest brands on. This is a myopic view.

Itis not racist to state that Syrians and Whites are involved in the trade in a BIG way, and people here shouldn't take that personally even if de accused is yuh pardner, yuh friend, yuh cousin, yuh auntie, yuh uncle. I doh care, as long as they are contributing to the destruction of the TnT i know and love, BUN DEM OUT!!!

 Listen, I really don't think the caretakers are fully responsible for drug-running...To transport all that cocaine you would have to making a lot of money...And which drug-dealer who have a brain-cell would trust a ' caretaker' with that amount of cocaine...What would stop that caretaker from taking some off the top , selling it and making a nice amount for himself? If he have enough belly to transport it , he have enough belly to steal it....Which drug dealer would trust someone who they cannot touch? They wouldn't do something this stupid...There must be bigger fish in that pond...Of course they are not goin to get caught and they are not going to look suspicious...People who involved in the drug trade would not reveal this to their family or friends just like that so nobody should say that they KNOW that someone is NOT involved...Go T&T

Allyuh give the man ah break nah, he served T&T well for many years which is better than most of us on here can say!

Nahkid you are welcomed home anytime!

We need honest, courageous and straight-talking T&T citizens like yuhself to challenge time wasters like Camps.

I say Nakhid for TTFF president, we need young blood and leadership in the TTFF and I believe Nakhid is the perfect candidate! 8)

If the man make a mistake and we forgive him is one thing but his actions are beyond recourse. He is a traitor and should be treated as such. He left de Warriors camp and went directly to Bahrain, weeks before the playoff. How can you explain and how can you forgive that?

In my humble opinion, the venom spewed on the site is nowhere close to the toxic discharge by Nakhid. He tie himself up, condemned an ethnic group and bad talk the coaches and management.

Jack saved his ass when he was in a jail in Lebanon. And, after the shite hit de fan two months ago, he proceeded to bad talk Jack.

He is ungrateful and irregardless of his years to the cause, you're only as good as your last game (actions).

Nakhid has always been a moron. He refused to play on the Shell Cup Squad in 1989. Gally could have had a look at him but no. After all he was playing for AC Milan having just been traded from Barcelona.

He feel because he was in Grasshopper in Switzerland he could have walked into the team. He refused and has told everybody that Gally did not want him.

Jack not the public as he claimed on SPALK got him out of jail. If it is up to my peeps he would have been lost in jail in Syria.

The lack of class is most evident my his silence I have not heard or read his congratulations to the team since we have qualified. I glad for Latas, Yorke and Shaka as we all around the same age so I have grown up watching them. Since 1983 when Latas was an under 16 I following him and Germany 2006 will be his crowning glory.

I'm not here to judge Nakhid weather he is right or wrong,is just that i have a soft spot for every player that have ever represented this country,i've dealt with and knows Nikhid personally and can't understand why he is being treated this way,Latas and Yorke cuss Jack and T&T Football so what,if Jack save Nakhid from going to jail say what,he is not the first player that happen too,Italy did it with Paulo Rossi and won a WC.

OK...well I doh think yuh thinking clearly on dis one..and ah think is because of yuh feelings fuh Jack. If yuh could say dat he does cause commess when he open he mouth den what did Nakhid do? As a public figure yuh have a moral responsibility to d public and d press is not yuh personal forum. Regardless ah what yuh think of people of certain race or whatever, keep it to yuhself. Ah know plenty men guilty of this but he just had poor timing. Dem same racial card he play dey make worse when he put out he opinion on TV, not dat it matter to me but what racial background of people used to watch him and pay he salary when he play in d middle east? D man have a habit now of biting d hands dat feed him.

Dat Bahrain trip was also poor timing, how much country and club out dey and he must to d one we hadda play to mek d WC right before d matches? Yuh mean nobody else want he? Also, he say he send tapes with d TTFF knowledge but ah thought dat was d job of d communications officer. Who know if he told them before or after dem tapes was in d mail for dem men who like conspiracy theories. Yuh go still be backing d man if we had lose? If dat had happen because dey were more prepared than we were then dem tapes have a part to play in checking we style. We doh have to send dem sh*t, anyone ask if dey send us any tapes or d TTFF had to source dem deyself.

Jack is an administrator and not everybody go agree with d man or he style but he did some good and some bad for TnT football. You looking like yuh just opposing anything d man say for opposing sake now. Yuh doh  even seem to acknowledge any of d good and stick on d bad only. And dat propaganda dat you say yuh get ketch in, all part of d mind games before a match like dat, its to be expected

After all dats said and done, Nahkid did serve us well but left on bad terms. Coulda been worse if he helped dem beat us. Was it too much to hold off talks with Bahrain for a week and just wish d team well instead of showing some bad mind on national TV?

Leave out the TV part about the Syrians.

Who was wrong in the dispute between Nahkid and Wim?
I should say who was more wrong cuz both of them move like ass.

Bottom line...both of them couldn't work on the same team.
Trouble in the camp....the kinda shit T&T famous for when things starting to look good.

Enter Nahkid on TV6.
Talk done.  Problem solve and the team put back as the most important thing.

Enter Nahkid in talks with Bahrain to try and cash in on their convenient "generosity"
Jack fire pre-emptive strike against Nahkid.....sway the public against him....Nahkid fire back, hint at getting into some kinda politics, say white man Whim is a racist...sway some back and promises legal action as of Nov 16th.

November 16th  Soca Warriors qualify for the WC

Nahkid vs. Jack postponed until further notice.

 Apart from what Nakhid has to say. Don Leo has said many times since that time that there are no secrets in football today.The same thing Nakhid said. So when people say that he sell we out. How?
Nakhid and Rijsbergen get in ting. The man integral to Beenhaker's plan so Nahkid has to go even if he was right because Beenhaker was more important to the team.
This was blown out of porportion by Jack to one cover up the incident and also not to have to pay de man  an alleged$100,000 dat he owe him.
But I agree with some of alyuh. He and Jack go make up.

I have followed Nakhid from the days of Gally-Grasshopper FC-new England Rev- Al Ansa- situuation in Lebanon - Joe Public - TTFF and the only common thing is that Nakhid has always had bitter fallouts with everyone , when not coach its the administration .
Could everyone else be wrong and Nakhid right ? I doubt it very much .

Nakhid thought that he would have been in great demand when he was fired but they obviously assessed him and thought that he could not be of any assistance to them . H ewas like the dog and the bone !!

Secondly in the Seven or so months that he was employed if you check how much he says he is owing ... it does not add up .. I am sure he was not functioning in any capacity to get 15,000 a month !!

Even the explanation he gave on spalk and then a different one the day after in the Press conference didnt make sense . They actually contradicted each other !

Tell meh something...when yuh vote a man for PM, yuh does always agree with him? Ah know Jack is a "special advisor" of whatever but d golden rule applies, d man with d gold makes d rule. If yuh could fund d team den do so and yuh could bring Nahkid back and make yuh own rules. It doh make it right but ah doh think ah have to tell yuh dats how d world runs. Doh question how much balls ah have partner...dats not an arguement yuh could win.

About what happen with Nakhid and d assistant coach, none ah we was there at d time and I ent talking about what Jack say about it. If he get a raw deal on d matter den yuh doh think it woulda been in everybody interest to just say d comments against him were baseless and yuh reserving further comments till after TnT qualify? Ah think that show a lil more tact and less sour grapes as it was looking like a major distraction to d team at that time. He couldn't wait a flicking week to go talk to Bahrain? If Jack and Bahrain was playing mind games den why he as a big man go play d other half and into dem hands? Yuh saying things were made up against him, so tell me how yuh know dey not true.

Yuh still ent answer who tell him to send tapes about d team over to Bahrain, ah really thought that was Shaun's job. As for d falling out, is dat d first time that happen in Nahkid career as a whole or with d TTFF? Like yuh said, Nahkid could be a fool sometimes, this was one of them moments and it just happen at d wrong time. I going off what d man say himself and d timing, you look like yuh vex with what people saying he did or did not do.

About him getting paid...ah have to agree with yuh...he work for it so is he money and he deserve it.

When d man was sacked I was feeling it for him...I real enjoy watching him run ball for we in d 90's, he used to give dem yardies pressure when we play in d stadium. It sour me when he start going on like a spoil chile at that time.

It go blow over like everything else...Nahkid doh play no more and more on d political side of things. We all know how that goes, one day friend, other enemy den friend when yuh need something...we go see...as for now...he did his time so let him go in peace like yuh said

Truetrini...doh rile yuhself up, yuh entitled to yuh opinion and I mine.

hear me out.

Yes i doh like Jack de football administrator.

I doh like how he does always talk out of turn without regard for de trute.

Nakis is ah real ass, me eh like him, but he also have valid points.

If ah man insult yuh sometimes it hard to swallow it.  Notice I said hard,,,not impossible,  But Nakid has a hard head and he take what he getm, but de man eh NO DAMN SELL OUT.

he serve T&T football and did what he thought was right..at least he have convictions.  Can you say that about 99% ah dem people who Jack have around him?
Nakid said he had a fallout with de dutch man because he was insulted and felt his religion was slighted.

Did he make too much out of it?

I was not there...so i/we can only speculate, but according to Nakid it almost came to blows.  Dat doh sound light hearted to me.

Anyway he is back in T&T and all seems well, he goes on a radio show and says de Syrians dem behind much ah de drug running.

He has no concrete evidence, but that is de general concensus in T&T fuh years ent?

Jack holds a press conference and fires de man citing racists remarks.

But since nakid disputed dat he has said nutten.  Nakid is out ah wuk, has not been paid and is made to look like ah traitor.

I doh care if Nakid was asked by bahrain fuh tapes or not.  I doh care if he send dem or not.

He probably made a rash decision in accepting de Bahrain job, but he was fired and had the right to do so.

IS Beenie a traitor to Holland if we come up against dem in de WC?

de man get castigated in de press, TTFF make immediate releases etc.  Why was day necessary?

That was potentially harmful to our bid to qualify as jack created a strom in ah tea cup.

Same thing about de jamaica game.

de trute was so far from what said.

The JFF said that they had no concrete plans and nothing was agreed upon.  Yet jack went off saying sell-out.

And dat after Boxhill from Jamaica call him and ask if it was ok.  Jack said no probs, we could use it as an opportunity to scout dem more.

He and he pardner Burrel cause big comess fuh political gain.

jamaica never even try to sell we out.

dat is my take on dem issues.

We could agree to disagree

ah hear he lost in ah sandstorm in de Sahara Desert somewhere between Egypt and Tunisia.  Reports from de region state that he tentatively accepted another post in Libya to coach de men's under 65 team, and decided to get there from Bahrain...on camel.  Despite all warnings by well intentioned residents, Nahkid, hard-headed as usual, thinking that the  advice was an insult and a slap in his face, decided to defiantly prove ah point.  The camel, in questionable health, obvious to all but the hard-headed former star of de great Lebanon Premier League, was purchased from ah street vendor who also moonlights as a dealer of non-working WMDs of German design, circa 1939, on de side for de lil' extra income.  

Well it has surfaced that Nahkid proceeded to go East on his camel, despite being told that Libya was West, and ended up somewhere on de Pakistani/Afghanistani border.  Anyway, after being held captive by a consortium of US Troops, Afghan Officials and strangely of all, Al Queada operatives for 4 1/2 days (apparentely, they all decided to work together after agreeing that Nahkid posed a threat to all of mankind's combined common-sense, sense of reason, and moral decency), he was eventually unleashed, or rather, released, thanks to de intervention of Jack Warner, and sent westward...towards Syria.

The story doesn't end there, but needless to say, reports from the region has him last seen carrying his camel on his back, and some salted nuts through a sandstorm in de Sahara...again, despite all well intentioned advice to the contrary.   Further details will be provided when available.

Title: Nakhid's Warriors Pledge

Nakhid's Warriors pledge
By Lasana Liburd (Trinidad Express)


Former Trinidad and Tobago national football team captain and scout, David Nakhid, is set to participate in his first Hajj as a tribute to the 2006 World Cup-bound "Soca Warriors".

Nakhid, who spoke to the Trinidad Express Newspaper from Medina, Saudi Arabia, said that he was fulfilling a pledge made earlier in T&T's World Cup qualifying campaign.

"My promise to Allah was if Trinidad and Tobago qualified," said Nakhid, "I would make the Hajj. And I am here."

"I am very happy for the team."

At present, Nakhid is completing his Umrah which, for Muslims, is a series of ritual acts symbolic of the life of the prophet Abraham. He heads to Mecca tomorrow, while the Hajj begins officially on January 9.

Nakhid's relationship with the present team ended on a sour note, three months ago.

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) sacked Nakhid in October.

The Federation claimed to have fired their employee for "racial remarks" made on TV6's Morning Edition programme aimed towards certain sections of the local Syrian community.

Nakhid countered that the T&TFF were attempting to cover up the real reason he was axed-for standing up for his religion in a verbal altercation with assistant national coach Wim Rijsbergen.

T&TFF special advisor Jack Warner subsequently accused Nakhid of spying on his homeland after it emerged that he was offered a coaching job by Bahrain-the Warrior's final opponent in a two-leg play off.

Last month, Nakhid said that he refused to accept a Bahraini post before their playoff fixture against Trinidad and Tobago.

Yesterday, Nakhid confirmed he still had not accepted a job as Bahrain's youth team coach although he suggested that it remained a possibility.

"I have not taken up anything officially with them as yet," said Nakhid. "But I do have an advisory role with their Ministry of Sport."

Nakhid intends to first fulfill his Mecca pilgimmage and then return to Trinidad, in early February for legal proceedings against Warner and the Newsday newspaper for defamation.

He told the Express that, as always, he monitors events in Trinidad and Tobago and was interested in the debate concerning the T&TFF's distribution of World Cup tickets.

"I think it interesting that certain things are being exposed about someone who is always claiming to be serving the interests of Trinidad and Tobago," said Nakhid, in a clear reference to Warner. "It is interesting to see how the authorities and the people of Trinidad and Tobago deal with this."

Nakhid explained that, in his opinion, T&T could purge much of their ills by actively trying to fix problems rather than sitting by and waiting for them to go away.

"Are we truly a developing nation; or are we a nation who will always hide their heads in the sand and never confront things?" he asked, rhetorically. "Too many times, we are happy to let things be because we have three meals on the table and cable television and carnival. That is why Trinidad is the way it is today; because we haven't taken the opportunity to change things when they come around."

That harsh Feliz.

If the man decide to make it because of a major achievement (that never happened before) that is his prerogative.

The fact that he never did it before is not a reflection of the strength of his faith.

At least 345 pilgrims killed in Saudi haj crush
Reuters
By Heba Kandil

At least 345 Muslim pilgrims were crushed to death on Thursday during a stoning ritual on the last day of the haj, the worst tragedy to beset the sacred ritual in more than a decade.
"So far, the number of confirmed deaths is 345 and the number of injured in hospital is 289," Health Minister Hamad bin Abdullah al-Manei told Saudi state television, adding that many had been discharged.
The pilgrims were crushed at the eastern entrance of Mena's disaster-prone Jamarat Bridge as they jostled to perform the stoning between noon and sunset in Mena, a narrow valley near the holy city of Mecca.
"It was like the road of death there," one pilgrim said, describing women fainting and people elbowing and pushing to get closer to the wall where pilgrims direct their stones.
Some 2.5 million Muslim are performing the haj this year, and the death toll was the worst since 1,426 people were killed in a stampede in a tunnel in Mecca in 1990.
Thursday's crush intensified as many pilgrims scrambled to pick up belongings lost in the heavy crowds, officials said.
"Immediately after noon, there was severe overcrowding among the pilgrims that led to many falling and dying," Manei said. Many pilgrims insist on following Prophet Mohammad's example of stoning after noon prayers instead of staggering the ritual throughout the day as some clerics recommend.
Bodies covered in white shrouds littered the Jamarat area, as medics tended to the injured on stretchers. The bodies were driven away in ambulances and refrigerated trucks.
"The people who died were trying to get onto the bridge to do their stoning. But a wave of people came from the (other) direction trying to get off the bridge. That's when people died," said Egyptian Amr Gad.

DISASTER-PRONE RITUAL

The crush was the second disaster to hit this year's pilgrimage. Last week, 76 people were killed when a hostel in Mecca collapsed in a narrow street.
Saudi security forces set up a tight cordon around the Jamarat Bridge to control the crowds, as many pilgrims thronged to carry on stoning three walls in a symbolic casting out of the devil and rejection of temptation.
"It (the crush) was the result of a large number of personal belongings being dropped and because large numbers of pilgrims insisted on doing the stoning in the afternoon," the Saudi Interior Ministry said in a statement on state news agency SPA.
"Pilgrims fell over and crushed each other at the eastern entrance to the Jamarat," the statement said.
The haj is a duty for every able-bodied Muslim at least once in a lifetime. Many pilgrims transport their belongings from site to site, hampering the flow of pilgrims.
"There was crowding and pushing, of course. It's so sad to hear about the people who died," said Fawaz Zahrani, a Saudi.
The pilgrimage has been marred by stampedes in the past, and some of the worst have occurred in Mena. In 2004, some 250 pilgrims were crushed to death at Jamarat Bridge. A decade earlier, 270 were killed in a similar stampede.
Saudi Arabia has revamped the Jamarat area by expanding the stoning targets and provided an unprecedented security blanket including 60,000 security men to control the huge crowd and avert possible attacks by Islamist militants.
After this year's haj, the Jamarat Bridge will be replaced with a more elaborate bridge involving a four-level system of entrances and exits to the three walls, including a subway, and costing 4.2 billion riyals ($1.12 billion).
Pilgrims, in white robes meant to eradicate differences in race and class between Muslims, perform a third day of stoning on Thursday and make a final visit to the Grand Mosque in Mecca, according to rules laid out by Prophet Mohammad 1,400 years ago.

Post by: sammy on January 13, 2006, 12:45:20 PM
Yes plenty ppl does die each year there, but we all plan our activities daily, just like the ppl in Hajj who died......but muslims & ppl always have to remember that God does plan tooo and sometimes we may not understand it...but his plan is the one that counts. So while muslims all over the world "feel" for the families of the ppl that died - Allah is the best of planners and we all believe that. Also we pray that everyone who made the pilgrimage have their Hajj accept by Allah.....because the reward of an accept Hajj is forgivness and Heaven.

In terms of Nakhid and his reason for Hajj...Allah knows his intention ...and we all sometimes find our self in a bad situation where we might pray and say " God if u bring me out of this i go never do 'so and so' again" so its like a pledge to God u making there. If u go back and do what u said u wouldnt do ..then u breaking u pledge with God. So in Nakhid's case, if he pray and say he go make Hajj if we qualify...then he have to honour it.....buh the thing is....it all goes back to intentions....it come like he didnt make the pilgriamge on his own...he may have done it cause we win ...- if yuh understand where i coming from....so then he might have to go for Hajj again with the intention of fulfilling his faith and not an oath.  If he had made the pilgriamge b4 and now he going back to honor his oath...then no problem.

I not preaching eh...jus some info  ;D

ah well he went to bahrain after being let go by the TTFF for out of line public comments stating a pernicious stereo type of a certain race then he was picked up by the Bahrain FF almost immediately after, all this following allegations of his wife trying to get videos of the TNT team games not to mention that he was our assistant coach who went over to coach the Bahrain Jr. team and all of it was just to be seen as a coincidence that TNT & Bahrain were about to play the TWO BIGGEST GAMES OF THEIR RESPECTIVE FOOTBALLING HISTORY.

And that Bahrain official was quoted...

"We simply made him an offer he could not reject."

I hear what yuh saying...but the harm has been vastly overstated in my book...and I don't think he did anything that was unreasonable, unpatriotic or particularly treacherous.

What were the 'racial' comments in btw...don't repeat if really offensive, but I'm kinda curious.

What does Nakhid comments on the television has to do with betraying the country? all that add up to is being a bit stupid. Look how we hang on to that. We always see and read what we want. We just trying to be against the man to say we patriotic.

Quote
Look at what Nakhid say in the article only two people comment on it;
Nakhid explained that, in his opinion, T&T could purge much of their ills by actively trying to fix problems rather than sitting by and waiting for them to go away.

"Are we truly a developing nation; or are we a nation who will always hide their heads in the sand and never confront things?" he asked, rhetorically. "Too many times, we are happy to let things be because we have three meals on the table and cable television and carnival. That is why Trinidad is the way it is today; because we haven't taken the opportunity to change things when they come around."

That is what we should be focussing on, but sas he say "we just stick we head in the sand."

Concerning his tenure with Bahrain:

Quote
Last month, Nakhid said that he refused to accept a Bahraini post before their playoff fixture against Trinidad and Tobago.

Yesterday, Nakhid confirmed he still had not accepted a job as Bahrain's youth team coach although he suggested that it remained a possibility.

"I have not taken up anything officially with them as yet," said Nakhid. "But I do have an advisory role with their Ministry of Sport."

Nakhid political ambition

Lasana Liburd


Wednesday, February 15th 2006
 
 
 Former Trinidad and Tobago national football team captain David Nakhid is still waiting on a job with the Bahrain Football Association (BFA), but revealed his intrigue in political life yesterday afternoon.

Nakhid is in Trinidad to pursue legal action for slander against FIFA vice-president and Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) special adviser Jack Warner and Newsday newspaper for denouncing him as a "traitor" last October.

Warner's allegation was made in the build-up to last year's World Cup Play Off fixture against Bahrain.

However, Nakhid-a two-time Caribbean Player of the Year-is also contemplating serving the land of his birth in a new capacity.

On the same afternoon that former Olympic sprint star, Ato Boldon, was unveiled as a United National Congress (UNC) senator, Nakhid said he too would relish a political mandate.

"I would love one day to be in a position politically to do something for my country," Nakhid told the Express. "I think what people know about me and my strength is that I am a man of integrity who cannot be bought or sold.

"They know that I am also a man with no particular personal agendas who is not just looking to get paid."

Nakhid is unlikely to appear on a UNC or People's National Movement (PNM) platform, though, after suggesting that both parties had "failed the country" by their inability to stamp out corruption.

He was especially dismissive of the opposition party.

"The people within a party make the party and its image," he said. "If you look at (leading UNC members) Basdeo Panday and Jack Warner and their track records, you are left with no choice.

"I would love to offer an alternative although I know it is difficult for Trinidadians to think outside the box and accept someone as an independent member."

At present, Nakhid is trying to learn more about Movement for National Development (MND) leader Garvin Nicholas, although he is still uncertain whether he would meet him.

In the interim, he is enjoying the opportunity of a vacation in his homeland.

Nakhid said things were in place for his new job as Bahrain's national youth team coach but explained that no appointment will be made until after the 2006 World Cup in Germany.

"Right now, the (Bahrain) senior team is trying to qualify for the Asian Cup," said Nakhid, "and they are concentrating all their efforts on that. If everything goes okay, though, I will start after the World Cup."

Nakhid, who participated in Trinidad and Tobago's successful World Cup campaign as a player, assistant coach and scout before being fired last October, will go to Germany with his three sons-Jamal (13), Ja'afar (11) and Ali-Kazim (6)-as a supporter.

Both party are extremely corrupt and we need fresh blood. PNM had people running away with 100 millions in the last 70s and UNC airport deal in 2k1.

We may have issues with Nakhid's Bahrain job and his fights with Warner and the TTFF, but I doubt you can find very many people that will disagree that he is a very good footballer, technically sound and smart enough to teach the game to the youths.

I also think he would make a good politician, alot of folks dont like Al Sharpton cause they find he always making noise and causing a ruckus, but these guys see a perceived injustice against their people and speak up about it, aint nobody else saying anything so at least they trying to shine some lights on things.

'Don' Leo was looking ahead

Opinion by David Nakhid in war-torn Lebanon


Thursday, July 20th 2006

(http://www.trinidadexpress.com/shared/images/2006/07/20/sm4.jpg)
 
Trinidad and Tobago's coach Leo Beenhakker listens to the national anthems before their World Cup match against England in Nuremberg, Germany on June 15. PHOTOS: AP

It must be an intrinsic part of the Trinbagonian psyche to find something to laugh or smile about in the most despairing of times, me finding this self evident as I've tried most times to distance myself from things reflective of that same psyche that cultivates apathy, cronyism, pettiness and plain ole corruption.

Allow me some philosophical leeway as I remain confined in relative safety for the moment, compared to the close to 100 innocents who have already passed on to a place surely better than this one.

I smile as I remember the joy of watching in Germany and then from my house in Greece the participation of my country at the world's premier sporting event.

I smiled again albeit with a different motivation as I read the subsequent articles describing our performances by our supposed football experts, most of them inclined to go with the flow of the expected Trinbagonian euphoria, and catering unashamedly to the popular sentiment or the dictatorial mandate.

Our boys fought with heart, grit, determination and discipline, all of which made us proud and the rest of the world surprised, but let's not be cowards. Although these qualities are part of football, they should serve football and not negate it, and Trinbago in all honesty played little or no football of any sustainable measure.

This is no criticism of the players, but surely of the coaching philosophy. It became apparent to quite a few of my colleagues, many of them who I played with in Europe and now aspiring coaches, all of them European, that by the end of the first half of our second game ,that "Don" Leo was coaching for a future contract, and assuredly not with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation.

Not to be embarrassed was the obvious philosophy. God forbid that any self respecting international footballer should reach the pinnacle of football aspirations, only to be not embarrassed.

I'm not talking about wanton offensive forays, but the chance to show the world that we too can play football...football. What a cowardly philosophy, exposed ever moreso by allowing "Latas" to play the last 26 minutes of our last game.

How he regrets that decision, believe me as I know Leo much better than you proselytes.

I smiled again (different motivation), as I think of all these idealistic people I had known whom time had withered not only in appearance but in their principles, that I had tried to make the core of my existence.

I thought of the white Trinbagonian from St. Mary's to the National youth team, who once told me that football mirrors life, the generous player on the field will more often than not be the same off of it. The same would apply to the selfish player.

Well, nothing could be more applicable as I later realised, this man of "principle" who defied authority, in his own charismatic way, turning out to be with the passage of time (how I respect you), just another crony albeit of a lighter shade.

He was not alone, so many of my "mentors" falling by the wayside, some for World Cup tickets or access, eh Doc or Baino, or some just wanting that chance to belong or truly help football and end up helping themselves, betraying the ideals they instilled in me as a young or indeed an older footballer. Eh Tiger or Big A. I hope you listen without prejudice and humour me somewhat, for I have been in difficult situations before, but this one has the feel of death, maybe not for me, but certainly those around me.

Evil as I have concluded in my now 42 years of life, does not always take the form of a tyrant or tyrannical behaviour, though there is that, were I to use Israeli actions as an example.

The real evil subtlety induces us to lower our standards, our principles, our morality, where after we no longer seek the excellence in ourselves but we are used to promote the agenda of someone or an organisation for that matter.

We invariably find ourselves doing mediocre things and revelling in mediocrity, convinced that the "ideal" this person or organisation promotes is what really matters.

I know what I have said will fall on deaf ears and open to ridicule...He vex he get fired...blah blah, yeh right! So if that's the case, I thank all of you who instilled in me the ideals that I pray to pass on to my three sons, before time got a hold of you all and made you afraid to remain courageous in spite of the hardships that may bring.

I too may become like you all as time marches on me as well, so I pray that one of the bombs from the Israeli planes falling near my house finds it way to me before I do.

ps...i hope u read this website and read this...unlike u..this is the only place i could vent meh frustration when i read one set ah drivel

Ah tink was weary1969 who said it best.  Nakhid fall out wit everybody but de Prophet Mohammed....and even de Prophet mus de does roll he eye dem when Nakhid open he mout.

As Dutty say...de man entitle to he opinion.  I wouldn't go and waste he down on de field because

1 - What he do on de field of play have nutting to do wit he opinions off it

2 - He was a damn good footballer, definitely not a goat in my opinion.

Nakhid jes bein Nakhid.  De last paragraph, he jes went de extra mile.

Besides....ah jes kinda curious.  

If Coach Beenhakker was only lookin fuh a nex wuk, as hinted at by Nakhid in this article and several others, claiming as evidence our teams apparent strategy of damage control, how would restricting our footballers "natural attacking qualities & ability to play football" help in his quest for a new job?  

If this "theory" is accurate, would it not be in Coach Beenhakker's best interests to unleash the spectacular offensive talents of our team on the WC stage?  Wouldn't that then enhance his ability to attract offers from the likes of the Dutch National team, Real Madrid etc?

This is perhaps the most worthless comment I have heard yet. This claim about us not playing "football" is a bogus one at best. It seems that Nakhid doesn't know that defending is a part of the game. Furthermore it is very useful when you come up against teams that are with the very rare exception comprehensively superior to you . What is even more saddening is that he conviently ignores the fact that in the game that we "attacked"  (Paraguay) where for as easily as we could have scored 1 or 2 goals, we could have conceed 4 or 5. The guy must have had a brain relapse or something because he forgot that we played for half the game against Sweden with 10 men.  He also seems to have forgetten that England had to depend on a dubious call to win their game. In each of our game we tried to possess the ball and get forward when it was possible.  This is according to Nakhid's standards is mediocrity.

Strangely enough I agree with some of what he is saying. We were in fact a mediocre team.We didn't win a game we didn't score a goal. Especially since we have the likes of Ronaldinho and Riquelme on our team. And that youth coming of the bench Messi is death. Cannavaro was woeful at the back for us and Henry should stayed home to eat doubles. Pardon that episode of sarcasm and allow me to say this. We built a team from MLS,TT Pro- League and lower division British  league players and came up against World Class opposition. We did more than just not embarrased ourselves, we played the ball across the park and attacked when we could we were solid and I am proud of that. What's more important is that hundreds of youths in this country are proud of that enough of what the Soca Warriors achieved to choose the ball over the bullet. But in any case it doesn't matter since Nakhid has steadfast standards.

Does anyone remember that Nahkid himself said in an interview that Beenhakker was one of the greatest coaches around.

David Nakhid, a former Trinidad captain who played at Swiss club Grasshoppers under Beenhakker, said the Dutchman can be an advantage to the Warriors, especially now when they sit at the bottom of the six-team CONCACAF final round qualification groupings for next year's World Cup.

"He's one of the greatest coaches, probably ever, and we have to try and benefit from his experience," Nakhid told the Express.


Now he's singing a different tune, honestly people, can anyone blame the coach for adopting a defensive strategy especially after seeing what power houses like Wales, Slovenia did to us.

Jose Mourihno said, you cant build a house from the roof down, sure up your defense first then build from there.

Well, I feel for the fella with all that is going on around him. It's easy to go mad in that environment. That being said, what is interesting in his willingness to criticize and accuse so many of selling out; he did not include Jack. Could it be that in Jack's book, Nakhid was erroneously given credit for bringing Beenhakker to Trinidad. It seems all the trickery and mischief Nakhid has engaged in over the years has finally caught up to him. So his overall message is true but it is he who has become the very thing he criticizes.
Title: Re: Nakhid's take on things....anybody got a dictionary?
Post by: rocwell on July 20, 2006, 09:36:29 AM
I think what Nakhid has said is no different from what many have posted on this forum recently:  that T&T had more attacking options, that he could have played Latapy more.

Also, that Trinidadians seem to revel too much in the fact that our results were indeed mediocre.  He isn't saying not to be proud of the team.  He's proud of the effort, but recognizes that more could be done.  Which again, is a sentiment echoed on this very forum.

His other point was that Beenhakker is one of those people who changed their long-held principles for selfish reasons (Reasons here being, that future contract.).  It seems he's implying that, in the past, Beenhakker would not have utilised such tactics.

Not a very controversial article in my opinion.

'Don' Leo was looking ahead

Opinion by David Nakhid in war-torn Lebanon

Trinidad and Tobago's coach Leo Beenhakker listens to the national anthems before their World Cup match against England in Nuremberg, Germany on June 15. PHOTOS: AP

It must be an intrinsic part of the Trinbagonian psyche to find something to laugh or smile about in the most despairing of times, me finding this self evident as I've tried most times to distance myself from things reflective of that same psyche that cultivates apathy, cronyism, pettiness and plain ole corruption.

Allow me some philosophical leeway as I remain confined in relative safety for the moment, compared to the close to 100 innocents who have already passed on to a place surely better than this one.

I smile as I remember the joy of watching in Germany and then from my house in Greece the participation of my country at the world's premier sporting event.

I smiled again albeit with a different motivation as I read the subsequent articles describing our performances by our supposed football experts, most of them inclined to go with the flow of the expected Trinbagonian euphoria, and catering unashamedly to the popular sentiment or the dictatorial mandate.

Our boys fought with heart, grit, determination and discipline, all of which made us proud and the rest of the world surprised, but let's not be cowards. Although these qualities are part of football, they should serve football and not negate it, and Trinbago in all honesty played little or no football of any sustainable measure.

This is no criticism of the players, but surely of the coaching philosophy. It became apparent to quite a few of my colleagues, many of them who I played with in Europe and now aspiring coaches, all of them European, that by the end of the first half of our second game ,that "Don" Leo was coaching for a future contract, and assuredly not with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation.

Not to be embarrassed was the obvious philosophy. God forbid that any self respecting international footballer should reach the pinnacle of football aspirations, only to be not embarrassed.

I'm not talking about wanton offensive forays, but the chance to show the world that we too can play football...football. What a cowardly philosophy, exposed ever moreso by allowing "Latas" to play the last 26 minutes of our last game.

How he regrets that decision, believe me as I know Leo much better than you proselytes.

I smiled again (different motivation), as I think of all these idealistic people I had known whom time had withered not only in appearance but in their principles, that I had tried to make the core of my existence.

I thought of the white Trinbagonian from St. Mary's to the National youth team, who once told me that football mirrors life, the generous player on the field will more often than not be the same off of it. The same would apply to the selfish player.

Well, nothing could be more applicable as I later realised, this man of "principle" who defied authority, in his own charismatic way, turning out to be with the passage of time (how I respect you), just another crony albeit of a lighter shade.

He was not alone, so many of my "mentors" falling by the wayside, some for World Cup tickets or access, eh Doc or Baino, or some just wanting that chance to belong or truly help football and end up helping themselves, betraying the ideals they instilled in me as a young or indeed an older footballer. Eh Tiger or Big A. I hope you listen without prejudice and humour me somewhat, for I have been in difficult situations before, but this one has the feel of death, maybe not for me, but certainly those around me.

Evil as I have concluded in my now 42 years of life, does not always take the form of a tyrant or tyrannical behaviour, though there is that, were I to use Israeli actions as an example.

The real evil subtlety induces us to lower our standards, our principles, our morality, where after we no longer seek the excellence in ourselves but we are used to promote the agenda of someone or an organisation for that matter.

We invariably find ourselves doing mediocre things and revelling in mediocrity, convinced that the "ideal" this person or organisation promotes is what really matters.

I know what I have said will fall on deaf ears and open to ridicule...He vex he get fired...blah blah, yeh right! So if that's the case, I thank all of you who instilled in me the ideals that I pray to pass on to my three sons, before time got a hold of you all and made you afraid to remain courageous in spite of the hardships that may bring.

I too may become like you all as time marches on me as well, so I pray that one of the bombs from the Israeli planes falling near my house finds it way to me before I do.
 

He was not alone, so many of my "mentors" falling by the wayside, some for World Cup tickets or access, eh Doc or Baino, or some just wanting that chance to belong or truly help football and end up helping themselves, betraying the ideals they instilled in me as a young or indeed an older footballer.

I know Nakhid.  Not well mind you, i was a few years beneath him at Saints and he has not changed.  Sometimes that is a good thing but it this case that is definitely not the case.  Where do I begin.  First, Beenie was not auditioning for a job.  The man's resume speaks for itself and he would have had offers for just taking this team to the WC.  I just wonder who are these players that were going to play this attacking brand of football. Anyway, I done talking aboiut how we play at the WC.  That's boring.  Seemingly everybody could have done it better and they could have taken us second rounds.  Secondly, Nakhid has fallen out everywhere he has been - the Revolution, the Middle East where they jail him, with Gally, with current coach Wim.  I dont know why we listen

few points
-we did not play 'football' in the WC we defend and had like .003% possession and no attack no offensive ideas coming outta midfield until the last 20 of the paraguay game
-we hustle we tail off but the game involves more than just that
-latapy shoulda played more
-some man sell they soul to ttff-this has been true for so many years and we all know it
I agree with the man
and to say nahkid wasn't a good player is just madness-matter of fact if he was there in 89 then germany would have been at least our 2nd WC

Yo he shock meh with like 2 of them names , if they are the folks i think he is referring to.
Nahkid like attention and men reaction to this article is exactly what he loves.  He probably going back tt real soon just to stir thing up even more.

Whether it is Gally, Nakid or any local (like allyuh did when they played/coached), all yuh could do was mash them orp...

Allyuh call allyuhself Trinis to de bone but I see many on this board as a bunch of disloyal fakers/phu*uers.

How can you watch a man like Latapy who dedicate over 20 years to TnT be disrespected the way he was (allyuh shut up and sit down and hail massa)and say the European (after a few months) know what he was doing.

After 3 games, Bertille had 1 point....  After 3 games Beenie had three points...  Yorke then beg Latapy to return...  After 4 games with Latapy, we gained 9 points...  Yet allyuh still claiming Beenie was the savior...

But as every artist in TnT, whether musician, or athlete, yuh here today and gone tomorrow.

Beenhakker is de luckiest b!tch I ever see, de only coach to have 3.5 CONCACAF spots to work with, de only coach who Trini fraid to criticize, wuss yet de only coach to leave de World Cup whose team left as the only team to not score a goal and then be anoited a hero...

De only coach who getting paid by 2 countries and now have his assistant as head coach...

De only coach who knew up front that Latapy initially wanted to play the part of player/assistant coach and then embarrass TnT's greatest hero on de world stage and get away with it so that his assistant will be promoted to head coach...

Every other coach who grace TnT, particularly Local, all man could do is mash dem orp, now nobody could even dare question Beenie's tactics, else yuh muddah, faddah and chirren getten cuss...

Allyuh sick no arse, I never see a bunch ah arse lickers like allyuh, I am a man who respect 20 years of service and will never accept some phu*uing foreigner to disrespect our hero de way Beenie did and all ah allyuh who love to defend Beenhakker could say was dat Latas too old, Luis Figo was 37 and Latapy was 37, and the world has seen against Paraguay dat Latapy can still work magic...

Sad to say but de roots people in Trini know de truth and agree dat Beenie phu*ue up and benefit his own, is only allyuh internet-savvy-feel-allyuh-superior-cornts who love tuh kiss arse... sick phu*uers

Allyuh European Arse lickers, haul yuh muddahs cornt!

Beenhakker get away with murder and den de jackarse gov't give him a Chaconia medal after paying hundreds of thousands of US dollars....   

If dis is not a clear cut case of colonial brainwashing, I doh know what is...

Post by: vb on July 21, 2006, 03:35:41 AM
Whereas most of us agree that Latas should have played more...beenie has given his logic on that situation.

How many of us would have brought on Cornell when avery got a red card? The man did what he thought was best...but he lapse with the Latas issue.

NOW! Bertille had one pt after three games...with TWO games at home.

Beenie had one pt. after 3 games, with two on the road. One was agains Mex where we played with 10 men for a long period of time and got praise for our brave effort. When last TT get praised when playing in mex.

Now I eh licking no white man ass...but let's analyse how things happen rather than say 1 pt after three games like is the same kettle of fish.

In all fairness to Bertille he had some new players vs CR that weren't there vs. the STates.

But anybody who can't see how we improved with Beenie is a damn ass.

Yes we were very defensive...but we are a limited team, and the man ensured we got minimum cut ass whilst still playing a good tactical game.

How many teams that don't dominate possession get the praise we did at the WC? The man took a team with deficiencies and made us into a UNIT.

U think he WANTED to be dat defensive, he was working with what we give him. Defensive minded men, doh bring on strker when you only have 10 men.

I really don't see how 20 years of dedication have anything to do with selecting a team to get the best possible result.

U don't pick a team out of nostalgia.

Why allyuh doh criticize Latas for smoking even when we were preparing for the biggest football event in our history.
Eh?
Becuase he is allyuh hero he immune from criticism?
I doh hold no grouse with him choosing to do what he want at his age...he already achieve plenty but he is a big man and know the impact of that decision.

And to say we don't criticize foreign coaches is a farse...if not a bold faced lie.  Leo must be the only coach who survive de criticism and guess what....it was purely because of results....nothing else.

If u seeing him as a colonial master you need to free your mind.

Correct me if I'm wrong, didn't Latapy look average and looked his age against the Costa Rica game in CR and against Bahrain here in ourown backyard. Sweden and England are no CR and Bahrain. Latapy was the oldest outfield player in the WC. No disrespect to Latapy but you can't compare him with Luis Figo who has far more experience at the highest level than Latapy not to mention he is 4 years younger than Latapy and takes care of his body.

Bigger players than Latapy have been benched at the WC.
Now back to the defensive tactics, I think many of us think our team are better than they really are. We lost to Wales, Slovenia, Czech Rep, conceeding 8 goals in the process. We went out and attacked for one game and we conceeded two and scored none.

A defensive, counter attacking option was the ONLY option for us. Had Glenn's goal been two inches lower and Stern's shot not been cleard by Terry different remarks would have been said.

few points
-we did not play 'football' in the WC we defend and had like .003% possession and no attack no offensive ideas coming outta midfield until the last 20 of the paraguay game
-we hustle we tail off but the game involves more than just that
-latapy shoulda played more
-some man sell they soul to ttff-this has been true for so many years and we all know it
I agree with the man
and to say nahkid wasn't a good player is just madness-matter of fact if he was there in 89 then germany would have been at least our 2nd WC

Yo he shock meh with like 2 of them names , if they are the folks i think he is referring to.
Nahkid like attention and men reaction to this article is exactly what he loves.  He probably going back tt real soon just to stir thing up even more.

According to FIFA :
 
                          Trinidad 0                 Sweden 0

Shots                      6                              18
On Target                2                               6
Fouls                       10                             9
Possession               40 %                         60 %



                          England 2                Trinidad 0

Shots                        23                         7           
On Target                   8                         3
Fouls                          15                        19
Possession                   62                        38


 
                            Trinidad 0             Paraguay 2

Shots                         9                      16
On Target                  2                        9
Fouls                         21                      18
Possesion                   47                      53

It should be noted that this is only game that some say we attacked the opposition
I should also add that we came closer to scoring against England and Sweden than against Paraguay.

BIG PLAYERS STEP UP IN BIG GAMES AS EVIDENCED BY THE FIRST GUATEMALA GAME- which we needed to win. Anybody who think that Mr. Latapy wouldah shat down himself at the World Cup is an arse...and when you have the likes of Theobold- who for me was just running around the field looking lost starting on yuh squad...then to me you have been disrespected......Dont know if anybody else saw this but in the paraguay game when glenn went down and Dwight saw that Latas wasnt coming on how he reacted on the field...you would entertain a conspiracy theory that there was a little power struggle going on there...
Now you know the term when you find a jackass ride it? Well Beenie just left us to go to Poland and set himself up whereby if he fail, he could waltz right back in after 2 years and we will take him back with open arms...and just to make sure- he leave he partner in charge..Those fellas looking after each other first- and then the state of TNT football..always remember - they have no reason to have an allegance to TNT beside CASH. C.R.E.A.M. and if I was getting a million for leading a team to the world cup, You bet yuh bottom dollar I would leave that door open...
With that said I hope Vim earns his money...And i wish TNT football the best...but remember, just like you rjob and mine They have their internal power stuggles, sides and everything else that does go on in everyday life...

So you're saying that the Guatemala game was the only big game. The Bahrain playoff game wasn't a big game ??? Having said that, I too thought Latapy could have come on against England at the 70th or 75th minute to help us keep possession a bit. For me, I'm not sure if Latapy could have handled the pace and physical nature of the Swedes. After the Paraguay, I had Australians, Germans and Scots coming up to me asking why didn't the coach bring on the # 10 earlier because he was the best player on the pitch. I agreed. But to think the coach set out to disrespect Latapy or sabotage the team is absolutely absurd. The players have nothing but respect for the coach and generallt agreed with the tactics he employed.

At the end of the day, if we want to see us playing attacking football against good European teams, we need more players playing at a higher level in Europe week in, week out.

I thought this was common knowledge but one of the problems we as Trinidadians have is a lack of objectivity. I don't have a problem with criticising the coach but it must come from the facts presented not from people losing their minds and claiming conspiracy theories. I like you agree that Latapy should have come on the last 15 minutes of the England game but the claims about us not playing football or attacking as we should are absurd. We are not good enough yet and we played to the best of our abilities against these teams. 1 poster compared Trinidad to Ghana. It is a most illogical comparision.  Ghana's players are starters the some of the best leagues in the world (Italy,England, Germany). We hoping for Carlos to get a EPL buy. Steups. World Cup done it is time for us to settle down to the grass roots development of the game to produce better players and thereby better teams.

Nahkid never say we shoulda gone out guns blazing pin we ears back and attack but he expected some more going forward than what we did and i agree with him.
If we wrong and other people see it different then so be it
i think yeah be defensive smart and tight at the back but  more time we hold the ball and outside our defensive 3rd less chance of conceeding a goal.
Is that beenie fault? i don't know.

Everyman entitled to his opinion and Nahkid may have gone overboard, but he is quite correct, in my opinion. Beenie went out there with no faith in the team, just in his tactics. And the comment that Nahkid made about him regretting putting Latapy on for the last match I agree with, because it exposed his flaws. He never allowed the players play, he ensured that what was on display at the world stage was his tactics and abilities in getting these players to adhere to them.

However, I disagree with Nahkid in that i don't think he was playing for a contract but it was more along the lines of distrust.Basically the same mentality that he couldn't trust the players to express themselves within the designated structure (like we were doign all along) so instead he just took away all chances of errors by eliminating that. I could be naive, as Nahkid say he know beenie better than all of us (which is true) but he definitely showcased his own abilities as a coach more than the players were allowed to showcase their abilities and Trinidad's ability.

I know most of you in foreign but it have a video on synergy about ''Latapy, u mnake me so happy'' and at the end of the video the man had a snippet of an interview with Latas. Latas say " The only thing he wants out of the World Cup is that we go there and show them how trinis play football and stay true to our attacking nature."' Beenie deny the man his one wish.

We caught up in the euphoria of the Sweden performance still but seriously, all Beenie brought to the team was a level of professionalism and structure. he gave us the building blocks and hopefully he can build on them, but we shouldn't act like he is our saviour. Seriously, any coach of his stature would have brought that to us and in 2 years time, if Poland are out of the European Championship qualifying for playing boring football and drawign too many games, I hope we as a ppl not still praising Beenie blindly and casting aside all criticism without at least seeing there is some truth in it

Which one of those games were we able to "express ouselves"? I would invite the Beenie detractors to review those games and tell me which 1 would we have had the time and space to express ourselves? We played defend and counter attack in the first 2 games and even then we still left enough space at the back for England and Sweden to create a bag of chances only for Shaka to put down a miraculous save or for Crouch or Owen to miss. I don't understand what you mean about a coach not trusting his players. The coach organised his team as best as he could the face the teams we played. If we played the type of football you are talking about we would have been humiliated. As I said earlier we tried to possess the ball and play positively so I don't know where this talk about us not playing football is coming from.

some questions...
If BeenE was still all good and all that great experience would he have been coaching in the Mexican League ? Did he leave a winning team to come coach us ? But would any other coach available, local or otherwise, get the same amount accomplished as far as Organization, structure, and just plain ole getting things done, as BeenE did ? So in the final analysis, did BeenE do the Job?
What is Wim big credentials to win the present coaching job ? Was there a list, long or short?
Does everyone think Latapy is ah borse and should have been played more and before by BeenE ? What did Latapy say when first asked to come back ? Didn't he refused to play for St. Clair ? Wasn't  it the same for Whitley?  Didn't Nakhid also praised and promote BeenE ? Didn't BSC have Nakhid & Yorke operating in asst. coaches roles as senior players ? Didn't every body throw they support behind BeenE, including Latapy, which nuthen wrong with, but why ppl crying now when BeenE made the hard decisions that others(like BsC) didn't want to or maybe couldn't make ? If ppl make dey bed, should other ppl lie in it, ala Latapy, and everybody else who have a problem now?
Would Wim have refused ah live like a King advisory role, with possibilty of promotion, instead of ah Live like ah King coaching role, with surety bs talk of demotion ?
Does BeenE and Clan think that they could take advatage of how we like to fight down and cuss up each other and how we have money to throw way behind all dream projects could possibly work in their favor?

If ah man make ah statement, that if he make anudda statement then he go get cuss,cause everybody except he chupid, then he makes the statement, cusses everybody, and calls them so and so's, isn't he ah chupid so & so too?

Post by: elan on July 21, 2006, 12:36:35 PM
I agree with most of what Nakhid said. We did not play good football at the WC, but it was the best fooball we have ever played. As he rightly said we lowered our standard to accept what was presented to us. It's kinda like being at a bar and it about to close. Head nice and all of a sudden the ugly gyul in the corner start to look kinda good, it's similar.

One thing we have to understand as supporters, TRINIDAD and TOBAGO has no style of football. If you disagree explain to me how do we play? Yeah, Latas will light up the middle, but usually the end result is naught. Beenhaker method with our team was that of coaching a youth team. He's (Leo) smart and as Nakhid said he played to look good.  Restrictions, restrictions, restrictions, thats how you get youth players to do what you want them to do. Any sensible coach could have seen the deficiencies of our team. No methodology of play.

Our style and flare of attacking....my arse, and put the Ball where in the stand? The best midfield we could have had at the WC would have gone like this, Nakhid, Birchall and Latapy.....figure it out. As supporters who wants to see the advancement of football in T&T, we need to put the emotional, nostalgic feeling aside and see what is, not what was.   "The moment we want to believe in something we suddenly see all the arguments for it and becomes blind to those against it."

Remember, to criticise is not to dislike.

I'm sorry but I disagree with those that are still finding fault with our play in th WC. Anybody remember when TT couldn't defend? We had no control in the middle? Men on the side wanted to gallery and play dribbling the ball without passing? Fact is those individual skills do not win games. This time around we saw a team that had a strong middle and took chances when they could. So what if we didn't win games, we are building a foundation, and any builder will tell you foundations have to take time to set. Next time...

So Wim me boy continue to lower our standard so we can qualify for the next WC. All future coaches do th esame so I can follow the Warriors and see the world.

I am convinced that if Beenhakker was black, he would NEVER have had the unquestioned freedom that transpired before and after the world cup.  Now, a foreign black man would still get more love than anyone local but still, not on the level of massa Beenie... 

Yuh evah eat in a restaurant in Trinidad or wuss yet, Tobago, and see how quick dem waitress does run to serve de foreign people before we locals?  Dat sickness from colonialism is still present now, and de jackarses who cyar understand that WE WOULD NEVER HAVE QUALIFIED WITHOUT LATAPY ARE WHAT I CALL UNGRATEFUL MUDDAH *%%^S!

Whoever want tuh cuss meh, accordin to Bush, "bring it orn", because I fedup ah de local hating, European foreign loving so called Trinis on dese forums, allyuh need help. 

Ah next jackarse telling meh Latapy wouldah make no difference and the 3.5 spots make no difference... So wait nah, if we still had 3 (like all previous coaches) and not 3.5 spots, we wouldah qualified, eh, yuh cournt?

 Life is a paradox.

 Whatever Nakhid's motivation may be to say all of this is his but take a look back at our WC performance and ask yourself if what he says about how the team played is not right.
 As I said before I have never seen TT play such defensive football in my 40 odd years of watching my team.
However that being said, I remember walking out of the Dortmund Stadium in as much shock as the Swedes WOW WE JUST DREW OUR FIRST WC MATCH AGAINST SWEDEN TO BOOT !!!
It soaks in... then the euphoria.

OK we will look at that game in ten years time (god spare life) and say " What de... no attack!"
And the football purists will say that Trinidad cannot attack .. shit we played that game almost like how Bahrain plays but without the time wasting.

But you know what ? This was our first and the journey now start .

So from a footballing standpoint Nahkid has a point but from pride of competing and knowledge of  better days ahead for our football, he has sadly missed the boat.

Keep safe Nahkid and look after your family... that is your most important task in life.

After 3 games, Bertille had 1 point....  After 3 games Beenie had three points...  Yorke then beg Latapy to return...  After 4 games with Latapy, we gained 9 points...  Yet allyuh still claiming Beenie was the savior...

But as every artist in TnT, whether musician, or athlete, yuh here today and gone tomorrow.

Beenhakker is de luckiest b!tch I ever see, de only coach to have 3.5 CONCACAF spots to work with, de only coach who Trini fraid to criticize, wuss yet de only coach to leave de World Cup whose team left as the only team to not score a goal and then be anoited a hero...

De only coach who getting paid by 2 countries and now have his assistant as head coach...

De only coach who knew up front that Latapy initially wanted to play the part of player/assistant coach and then embarrass TnT's greatest hero on de world stage and get away with it so that his assistant will be promoted to head coach...

Every other coach who grace TnT, particularly Local, all man could do is mash dem orp, now nobody could even dare question Beenie's tactics, else yuh muddah, faddah and chirren getten cuss...

Allyuh sick no arse, I never see a bunch ah arse lickers like allyuh, I am a man who respect 20 years of service and will never accept some phu*uing foreigner to disrespect our hero de way Beenie did and all ah allyuh who love to defend Beenhakker could say was dat Latas too old, Luis Figo was 37 and Latapy was 37, and the world has seen against Paraguay dat Latapy can still work magic...

Sad to say but de roots people in Trini know de truth and agree dat Beenie phu*ue up and benefit his own, is only allyuh internet-savvy-feel-allyuh-superior-cornts who love tuh kiss arse... sick phu*uers

Allyuh European Arse lickers, haul yuh muddahs cornt!

Beenhakker get away with murder and den de jackarse gov't give him a Chaconia medal after paying hundreds of thousands of US dollars....   

If dis is not a clear cut case of colonial brainwashing, I doh know what is...


Lil extreme .. but I tend to agree with the opinion that how Beene handled Latas playin time was disrespectful ....

Latas IMO ..is the greatest players to EVER wear the colors ...so for him to play 20 mins in a world cup ..is DISRESPECTFUL ....not 20 mins per game ..but 20 minutes for the TOURNAMENT?!!!! .... 

If the justification is that Latas is a defensive liability ...tactically Beene could have adjusted ...play with 2 defensive midfielders .. (take yuh pick on who..Birchall/Yorke...Whitley/Yorke ...) to cover Latas ....  there is absolutely no way that Theobald should have played as much as he did....

No sense crying over spilt milk ..WC (sadly) is over .. time for the future ...

If T&T did not attack enough ..I got enough joy out of ..1) How well ALL the African Nations played (one day there will be an African champ) 2) How poorly to US showed and 3) How beloved the Warriors were all over the world!!

Latas ..is a hero and he deserved more .. that is my only critique of Leo, tactically he could have factored Latas in....

I doh respond to tata so i leaving out the other 90% of your post.

Tell me when last we get a point in the US, or when last we come away from Mexico with a point.
Then tell me when last we get even a point from Costa Rica in Costa Rica. How come yuh wonder boy couldn't win that whole game by heself? eh? Panama, Guatemala, Mexico in Trinidad, all of that was nothing new, we did it before, but we just wan't playing how Bertille had dem playing.

How effective was Latapy against Bahrain in the first match? Where yuh was when they start him against Peru and because of him being there the whole formation was out of shape and we play tata the whole first half.

Better yet, where yuh was when he ended his 19 years of loyal service by retiring several hours before a qualifier?

I am not one to bring down players, all respect to the Little Magician, much bigger players than him get left off off World Cup side or ent even get the chance to show off what they worth. The World Cup wasn't no one player testimonial match. you need to take that number 10 glasses you seeing through.

If yuh believe the man coulda make a difference that is one thing, but yuh really need to get off that dead white horse your riding and beating like a snake because you not only sounding bitter and venomous but just downright racial.

Latas should not have been benched against Bahrain but allyuh believe anything Massa do or tell yuh.  I see de game and dais my opinion, take it or leave it...

Fix Warriors with attacking coach

HAVING played, coached and refereed the game of football for over 40 years, I add my two cents worth to the way forward for our Soca Warriors.

Firstly, I congratulate coach Leo Beenhakker (and his technical staff) for putting T&T on the world stage in the little time he had at his disposal. He did a good job considering.

I do not usually watch a football match twice, but so impressed was I with the Ghana vs Brazil game that I watched the rerun on television the same night!

The Ghanaians attacked in droves, breached Brazil’s defence on several occasions, had Brazil on the ropes, but their finishing let them down. I predict that they will be a force to reckon with in 2010!

Even though they lost they played the beautiful game the way it was meant to be played.

Did England play that way? Did Holland? Did the Swedes? No! It was always very tight in defence, string a few passes across the field, and then hit that long balls with one man in front holding up the ball until help arrives. Reminds me of the Alibey era and the Strike Squad.

That is what frustrated Rooney, as the sole striker, into committing that foul against Portugal. So said Michael Owens.

Did T&T play any differently? No! With a coach with that style, there is little or no room for attacking players. When you are called to coach a team, you look for your best players and then you build your plans around them. If you are defensive-minded and your best player is attack-minded, you will have no place for him on your team. That is what happened to Russell Latapy.

So Leo is gone and is replaced by his assistant, a defence-minded coach. Would he want an attack-minded player like Latapy on his team?

A football friend told me that Beenhakker met a banged-up Soca Warrior maxi (front and back mash up). We used to get goals in the first 15-20 minutes so he fixed the back. He Just did not have time to fix the front! Do you agree? I do not!

Check Leo’s record. He is great at defence period! If we want to score goals in 2010 I say hire Ratomir Dujkovic, Ghana’s coach, with Latapy as his assistant. I read where he is undecided about his future. Grab him fast! He is attack-minded. I am sure with Wim Rijsbergen as head coach another Latapy will never see the light of day.

Imagine your best player never even got a look-in for two full games. How could the Soca Warriors produce magic without the “Little Magician?”

Notice, it was only when he came on against Paraguay that Birchall got a shot off and Dwight too. The whole face of the game changed.

I do not always agree with “Gally” but he is right in saying that Beenhakker was afraid of Latapy because if you are in a defensive mood, Russell is so influential that he can go out there and change your plans. So the safest thing to do is to keep him on the bench.

That is not the way to treat your best player, a play maker, and one with great vision on the field. Not after you called him out of retirement and he made crucial plays and scored a crucial goal in the qualifications. Play him and build around him.

Please find us a coach that is attack-minded and one who will embrace the likes of Latapy’s style, with Russell as his assistant. Time to fix the front of the Soca Warriors’ maxi!

Breenhanker played who he thought was most suitable at that time to keep up with the pace of the opposing team ability to attack. Defense as some previously said is part of the game... so if that is what we had to do for 90 min then so be it.  Ok... let say we had the team go play "football...football" as he say nah like we Trini style with flare and thing real beat and show of for the world that we have talent and skills and we geh like reale goals them teams break records on we with like 6 and 7 goals ah game and thing ah wonder what he will ah say. ::) Yuh see that is why you all thee way in down they because ah yuh stupid mouth... who wants to be living with reale bomb dropping by man window.

Amazingly after reading all the posts I musts ay...I sat next to David in 3rd and 4th form in CIC, and the person who wrote that article is an entirely different person than I remember in Saints.  He may be in war torn situation right now, but I have served the US military for almost 20yrs with 4 tours in the "war"and I am probably an entirely different person too.  My point is experiences shape our outlook and therefore our opinions.  Mr. Nakhid seems to be bitter, I haven't kept up on his shenanigans since I left Saints, but if he played the ass with people and run off his mouth then the life lesson he should have learned is to keep it shut...evidently a lesson he hasn't learned.

I disagree with his position and I say position because with all his comments in the article it don't look like he have one.  He says in the past that Leo is the best coach.  He says in the article that Leo sell out the side for a better job.  He talks about the fact that Leo save the magician for the last game, maybe so, but Russell would have given us the win we needed to go out strong against the weakest team in our group.  I agree that Lats should have been used earlier though, because our play in the middle third and forward got a little better when he came on.  Nakhid  need to pick a position, stand by it and then learn he lesson and keep his mouth shut.

David Nakhid backs Soca Warriors.
By: Lasana Liburd (Express).
[/size]

Former Trinidad and Tobago national football team captain and two-time Caribbean "Footballer of the Year" David Nakhid yesterday voiced his support for the embattled "Soca Warriors" as they dispute their share in income generated by the country's appearance at the 2006 Germany World Cup.
The Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (T&TFF) claimed they received just under $18.3 million in sponsorship and marketing money and the players were entitled to only $141,102-once expenses were deducted. The players did not accept that figure last week or the T&TFF's stance that expenses be subtracted from their bonus.
The players met T&TFF general secretary Richard Groden yesterday morning to continue discussions.
Nakhid, who had several run-ins with the T&TFF as a player and assistant coach, claimed the organisation was being true to form.
"The info I have is only from the newspapers and from the outside," Nakhid told the Express, "it seems that (T&TFF special advisor) Jack Warner and the TTFF are pretty much double billing everybody.
"You can most surely verify this but the government was billed for a variety of expenses and now they are taken out again from the sponsorship money."
Nakhid, as captain, played a key role in threatened strike action over unpaid salaries on the day of the 1994 Caribbean Cup final in Port of Spain. The T&TFF bowed to the uprising and, with Brazilian legend Pele looking on, the national team recorded an emphatic 7-2 win over Martinique. It remains the largest victory in the final of the regional tournament.
"Our strike at the 94 Shell Cup was one of solidarity and bettered the conditions of local players," said Nakhid. "We went on to produce one of our best performances... So I hope, above all, the actions taken by the players will improve their lot and of course enable them to get the money that was promised to them."
Nakhid, who worked as assistant coach and scout for much of the 2006 qualifying campaign, might be the only member of the technical staff who did not receive financial reward for his effort. He admitted that he was upset about the failure to recognise his work despite the controversy which marked his departure.
The Lebanon-based former standout player joined Bertille St Clair's technical staff in late 2004 and continued to work under his Dutch replacement Leo Beenhakker up until the final Concacaf qualifier against Mexico. In Warner's biography, From Zero To Hero, the FIFA vice-president credited Nakhid for the recruitment of Beenhakker who once coached him in Switzerland.
But Nakhid's relationship with Beenhakker and the T&TFF broke down last October after a flare-up between Nakhid and the Dutchman's compatriot and assistant Wim Rijsbergen, who has since inherit the post of head coach. Rijsbergen and Nakhid came close to blows on the eve of a crucial qualifier away to Panama and the Trinidadian alleged that he was insulted by the national coach because of his Muslim religion.
The T&TFF fired Nakhid a week later and he was subsequently accused by Warner of spying on the Warriors for their final rival, Bahrain. Nakhid filed a lawsuit against Warner, T&TFF press officer Shaun Fuentes and the Newsday for slander and the matter is still before the local court.
Nakhid, who also played in one World Cup qualifier, claimed that he was still owed money by the T&TFF for his work while he blamed Warner for blocking him from being rewarded by the government although other players and coaches who did not travel to Germany were paid.
He said that his name was recommended for financial reward by the players' committee when the team returned from Germany but was struck off by the T&TFF. National goalkeeper Shaka Hislop confirmed that Nakhid's name was on the initial list handed to the T&TFF.
"I have not been paid a single cent owed to me by the TTFF for my work with the team," said Nakhid. "Moreover, Jack and the T&TFF decided that they had the power to veto any compensation to me by the government by taking my name off of the list presented to them by the players committee."

Prosper to hang up boots in Lebanon...as Petrotrin feels the pinch.
By: Randy Bando (ttproleague.com).  


United Petrotrin will have to do without their inform striker Peter Prosper for the rest of the season, after he left Trinidad last Thursday to pick up a one year contract with Lebanese First Division club Al Mabarah FC.
Prospers premature exit from the Pro League club to join Al Mabarah in time for their 07/08 pre-season is already proving to be a crucial loss to Coach Brian Williams, as his team failed to find the back of the net against Caledonia and lost 0-1.
Following his teams loss on the weekend, Williams told ttproleague.com Prosper would certainly be missed.
He(Prosper) is a great forward. He has done so much for us in the little time that he has been with us this season. He is no longer with us now and thats a loss, but we would continue to try and find someone who can replace him, said the Petrotrin Coach.
Prosper who donned Jablotehs colours last season helped the Oilmen scoring four goals in his short stay after joining the club back in June when he returned to Trinidad after serving a two month contract with Al Mabarah FC.
The former Trinidad and Tobago international is looking to end his lengthy career with the Lebanese club.
Prior to his departure Prosper told ttproleague.com, I am going back out to Lebanon and I am going to end it there. The manager of the club has always been in contact with me and he wants me to return to the club, explained the former San Juan Jabloteh player.
Prosper who had previously spent seven years before in Lebanon with First Division club Al Ansar between 1997 and 2004 says there may be the possibility of him playing longer than his one-year contract with the Lebanese club.
He went on to add, The manager of the team(Al Mabarah FC) wanted me to sign a two year contract with the club, but I have to take it one step at a time. I am turning 37 very soon, so I would only agree on one year and see how it goes before signing another. My time is coming to and end as a player.
Al Mabarah is coached by former T&T international David Nakid who was responsible for Prospers Lebanese contract.
Prosper who represented T&T both at the U-23 and senior levels helped Al Mabarah climb from sixth position to third in the League within the two months he played at the club earlier this year.
The former T&T international is considering getting into coaching locally after his playing days comes to an end.
Whats next for me? he said in deliberation, Im thinking of getting into coaching afterwards. Football is what I have always been exposed to and I think that I have learned a lot. Its now up to me to pass on what I have learned to the younger ones, he concluded.
Al Mabarah without the services of Peter Prosper were knocked out in the semifinals of the Lebanese FA Cup back in June. They lost 3-2 against his former club Al Ansar FC.

Full agreement! Just have a look at his website & you will see that what Nakhid is doing abroad is exactly what we need in T&T so we can start grooming our future Yorkes, Latapys & Nakhids from our youngsters.
The fact that we still have to call on Yorke & Latapy at this stage of their careers to help save our WC qualification campaign says a lot about our lack of proper youth football development in T&T.

Nakhid: Its about playing, not winning.
By Kenny Laurie (The Daily Star).


Animosity has divided the two parties one side sees itself as the owner of football in Lebanon, decrying academies as mere business ventures while the other bemoans the others lack of organization and professionalism.

We know how they operate, Nakhid says. [The Lebanese Under 13 national team] played a game against our under 13s before they traveled to a tournament in Qatar, we beat them 4-1 and they asked us for four players. They must know about us, [all our age groups beat everyone.] Thats not a way to work.

They are still angry with me and I understand but we will not let them go in those circumstances. If they were organized as they should be they would have looked at these players. Its not fair to our players and not fair to their players.

There is a huge pool that they are neglecting.

Why are we so much more organized than the national team when we travel? They travel with 22 players; we have 134, much more complicated logistics than them and we handle it much better, why is that? Its all about the work and having football at the heart.

Nakhid has made attempts to bridge the gap and continues his quest to find a way to integrate his teams into regular competitive football that can be seen around the country.

We had them play in the second division a couple of years ago. We got a license to play but the problem with the second division is that it is disorganized and can be violent.

A lot of our kids were in high school and a lot of times we played games and I was scared for me, so you can imagine how scared [for my players] I was.

We scrapped that idea.

His new idea is very similar just one level higher.

You need to play every weekend to stay competitive. What we are thinking about is getting a first division license, it will be less violent and fewer conspiracies involved because its more in the open. It wont happen this year but it might happen next year.

Regardless of how DNA teams fare in local competition they compete regularly in friendly matches with the countrys senior sides, and rarely lose it is in the international arena where the academy has flourished.

All we can do is take them out as much as we can, to play in Barcelona, London to keep them competitive.

Most of our first team are 20 or under so we have time.

What we do, we try to get them as much exposure in international tournaments. We first went to Como in Italy, we went to San Marino, tournaments that were at a good level but not the highest level and then began to go to the Welsh Cup and now we are at the pinnacle, the MIC Tournament in Barcelona and the boys [did] very well at all levels. Thats the only way, no one is going to come to Lebanon to look for players.

You can see the way they play football here and the state of the national team.

We have had a few players [attract interest], we have a player going off to play a tournament in Belgium with Standard Leige, we have players with a lot of talent, they just need to be seen more often. They travel and we play against high end competition, he says.

Barcelona, Man United, Tottenham. We beat Tottenham 2-1, Reading beat us 2-1 but they played some professionals. The Reading coach spoke to me afterward and was quite [interested] to have a relationship with us, he thought we were the national team.

We have played against Brescia in a game that Bob Al-Hajj went crazy and the Brescia players were holding him up after, our boys have done quite well.

Interest has already come in from all corners of Europe.

We have a player who Tottenham showed a lot of interest called Abbas Sleiman, he has been with us since 2007 and he made quite an impression in England. Im sure he will be one of the players to play in Europe.

You just need to keep getting them exposed, teams keep getting better and we just need to keep up with them, Nakhid says.

Its about playing, not winning:

Pass and move, pass and move. The philosophy at the David Nakhid Academy (DNA) is quite simple.To understand the game and to play good football, Nakhid tells The Daily Star while surrounded by a throng of enthusiastic teenagers.

Its all about the work, its about what you prioritize. We hold up Barcelona and Arsenal as a model to copy for our players. They have to be humble to take what we give to them. To play good football, you cant cheat, you have to play both sides of the ball.

It is a system that has taken time to bear fruit, but fresh from 2-1 win over Premier League Tottenham Hotspurs Under 19s team, Nakhid has reason to be happy with himself and the faith in his philosophies.

Over 100 young players practice at the Mabarrah playing fields in Beirut, enduring stifling temperatures, during the summer training camp. Almost every child is comfortable with the ball at this feet, plays with his head in the air scanning for options and player movement is constant creating fast paced, whirlwind football. And that is just how Nakhid likes it.

We teach them that [passing football] is the most important thing, says Nakhid, It is not about winning, we are an academy we are about developing players. Its my duty to see that when a player does not understand the game when he comes in [to the academy], that when he leaves he can play football. That means its definitely not about winning. We used to get our butts kicked quite a lot but now we beat everyone and we beat them playing good football.

The former Trinidad and Tobago midfielder finished his playing career with Ansar at the turn of the century, since then he has made his mission to produce good Lebanese footballers.

We went to Barcelona we played 40 or 50 teams and I didnt see anyone as talented as the Lebanese players. The Lebanese are genuinely talented but it comes down to the work.

I set it up here, I have my family and things are going well, its a logical conclusion.

Nakhids academy is not the only one in Lebanon. On the contrary many of the countrys best young players are housed in private academies rather than in professional league clubs centers of excellence.

The clubs see academies as a nuisance, and they think we are taking their best players.

Theres a reason people pay for us, they are sure they will learn something. Its for the clubs to sort it out, not us. We have the best coaches in Lebanon and its shows, look at our players. The clubs are too drawn along sectarian lines. I dont know where [my players] are from and I dont care, I want to see what he can do on the field. It was not like that when I first came, I thought I was in Europe again.

So why do players come to his academy instead of others?

The academies to be honest are purely business. You see the way they play and they way they do business, theyre all about winning to try and keep the parents happy and the students happy. We have played against teams that have no idea how to play, they arent concerned, they tell them to get out there and win. When we began we lost, if we win then great but Im not happy with a win unless we play good football. Its important that people can leave here and say I learned at DNA, I know how to play football, I understand football.

While the success of academies in Lebanon is a great source of encouragement teams from DNA and rivals ASA regularly take young Lebanese abroad to play top opposition, often beating their more illustrious opponents an underlying problem still lies between Lebanons best footballers and the countrys administrative body.

What does this have to do with anything though?  By that I mean specifically your first post, which seems to be point (some kinda) finger at him?


For me, the only thing 'controversial' about Nakhid is that on the surface it feels like he's abandoned 'us' in favor of 'them', it's not easy for a man to turn his back on his country.  Now, I'm not saying that he did, just saying that from the outside that's the first impression one gets.  As you put aside the emotional pull of that perspective you then appreciate that a man has to cast his seeds on fertile ground, he has something to share and for him it only makes sense to go where people are receptive to that.

lol I'd like to think these arent the traits that would effecta difference but rather the fact that he stands for what he believes in and isnt afraid to rock da boat a little .. what can I say just a matter of interpretation.
For all the Jack Warner supporters first of all to each his own .. simple question if you were to create a mental scale would JW's good deeds outweigh his bad ones ... let's see who really fooling themselves.

You could imagine you as ah pro coming home to play for your national team and have to deal wid ah coach who just happened to be a great player,  but never really COACH???

You woulda have to be biting yuh tongue right thru, some of us can and some can't...hence, no Italia 1990:)
       Breds we had foreign Coaches who could ah coach and came home and never did what Gally did up to that time.

What Gally do?
     Don't ask what Gally do,ask what any Trini ever do,you all never appreciate anything done by locals that's why we are the way we are.

Jack is the only man who came in and help Nakhid, all of his countrymen deserted him.

All Trinis good for is old talk and fete.

Not even the guys here willing to come together and make a change instead they hide behind their computers and talk.

Jack will raise again !!!!

Yuh talking shit, the TT govt. immediately stood up for him. They had their HC in London right on the matter. When JW offered to pay the bail DK had initially refused becz he didn't want to look like he was guilty.

I remember the situation well. Everyone in TT at home and abroad had his back.

Had to be rescued by the government, fell out with the  coaches again in 2006 and was removed from the  team and no one remembers this! I guess there was a lot of hype in the 80s as we wee coming back from a low period in our football  so those events and reports are still more vivid than other more recent debacles!

Nakhid is now coach of Racing Beirut.
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFF).


Former national captain David Nakhid has taken over the head coach position of Lebanese First Division team Racing Beirut.

Nakhid  who runs who runs the David Nakhid Academy, was approached by Racing  who have so far this season drawn four games and lost one. He agreed to complete the move last week, according to the Daily Star.

Nakhid previously had seasons with Al Ansar and one with Mabarrah as a player, first in the mid 90s then again from 2000-05.

 I will bring the same philosophy [to Racing] that I use in the academy, Nakhid told The Daily Star. This philosophy is what Nakhid calls playing good football which includes, playing out of the back and recovering the ball as soon as possible.

Nakhid added that he would bring mostly the same approach to Racing as he does to his academy. A coach has to be a father, a teacher and a brother all at the same time, he said.

Post by: SWF Reporter on August 11, 2015, 04:32:51 PM
Nakhid: If FIFA wants reform; then reject Platini and vote for me
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868.com)


Former Trinidad and Tobago National Senior Team captain David Nakhid announced today that he will contest the post of FIFA president at the upcoming elections on 26 February 2016.

Controversial president Sepp Blatter has vowed to step aside to make way for a new leader at the helm of the maligned billion dollar corporation, which has been plagued by corruption for decades.

And Nakhid, who is a former St Marys College student with a double major in International Relations and Economics from American University in Washington DC, believes he is the man for the job.

It is not about me wanting the job, Nakhid told Wired868. This is our time for a completely new face and a new ethos. According to the late (Trinidad and Tobago economist) Lloyd Best, we are the first, true globalists

The position of FIFA president is a diplomatic post with serious connotations. It needs someone who understands football and understands implementation and has the ability to transform that into how we reform the developing world.

Nakhid, who is in Antigua at present, has already discussed his presidency with Caribbean Football Union (CFU) president Gordon Derrick and Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president Raymond Tim Kee, among other regional football administrators.

He claimed that, on Derricks invitation, he will speak to Caribbean football delegates on Saturday at a CFU executive meeting in St Maarten.

A CONCACAF official has never stood for election at a FIFA congress while Nakhids move comes at a time when the Confederation is reeling from United States Department of Justice indictments of regional administrators for racketeering.

Current CONCACAF president Jeffrey Webb was extradited to the United States to stand trial while past president and Chaguanas West MP Jack Warner is fighting extradition.

However, Nakhid, who has not lived within CONCACAFs geographical boundaries for nearly two decades and runs the David Nakhid Academy in Lebanon, suggested that it was philosophically important that footballs reform began in the Caribbean.

We want this to come out from the Caribbean because this is a place that has been underdeveloped, he said, and used for votes in the past by people from other parts of the world

I will do whatever it takes on my side to give us in the region a chance to sit at the (FIFA) head table. We thought we had someone on the table but that was an illusion.

We had someone there who pushed his own agenda and rendered the Caribbean servile and impotent.

Nakhid, who claimed that his campaign has so far been self-funded, aims to win over the Caribbean with his manifesto, which points toward better development for the game in the region at all levels. He promised to make his manifesto public within two weeks.

One of his more radical proposals is the rotation of the CONCACAF Gold Cup throughout the Confederation, including Central America and the Caribbean. At present, the Gold Cup has never been staged outside of the United States and Mexico.

We have ceded the Gold Cup to the United States for a trickle down of TV dollars, said Nakhid. But a tournament like the Gold Cup could force investment in infrastructure and development and coaching and so on throughout the region and in Central America.

We want to be more equitable. The last board ceded that for their own benefit (and) that is just a sample of the inept leadership in the region before.

Nakhid, a former Grasshoppers (Switzerland) and New England Revolution (MLS) playmaker, also proposed a new paradigm for the development of players in the Caribbean that seeks smooth relations between schools and professional clubs.

He believes the Caribbean must have a professional league and said the CFU might be the last region in global football to be without a properly organised competition. However, he thinks schools can and should remain the bedrock of player development.

The Caribbean is very much school-based and community-based (and) we are very distinct in that way from Europe where things revolve around clubs, said Nakhid. I can tell you what a small European nation did that we can learn from.

In the 1990s, Belgium introduced a template in which incentives were given to primary schools and secondary schools, where, if they produced players for the national level, they got funding for school grounds and so on I know because I played there.

Some parents oppose sending their children to clubs but they allow them to represent their schools. This template forces schools to invest in better coaching and create more curriculum time for football because it pays off in real economic terms.

Nakhid suggested his intimate knowledge of issues in the Caribbean, Asia and Africa makes him a superior candidate to Platini.

Platini, according to Nakhid, is likely to continue Blatters system of patronage to the developing world, which has led to more corruption than development.

Patronage extended without proper oversight is not proper patronage at all, he said.

It is all well and good that football is taken to the wide areas of the world. But when money is given to build a football field and there is no oversight and nothing happens, you are just giving away money and that does not help development or anyone but the person who pocketed the money.

Platini comes from the wealthiest confederation in the world. You have to ask how can he help us or help Africa coming from on high. Why should this be a coronation for him?

FIFA should not be for the elite. FIFAs role should be to develop football throughout the world.

Last month, a Reuters report, which quoted from an anonymous source, said Platini already had the support of four from FIFAs six confederations. But Nakhid heard differently and he believes that, based on the strength of his ideas, he can surpass the Frenchman and former European Player of the Year.

Now is time for the FIFA leadership to challenge the status quo, he said. UEFA is by far the wealthiest confederation and biggest beneficiary of talent from the developing world. And still, with all the largess they have, they complain within the democratic process about the money that goes to the developing world

I cant come from a position of absolute strength and think I can identify with the people in Morvant (a depressed area in Trinidad). Platini has never worked in development (and) my track record is clear.

Not only did I play in the developing world and speak out many times against the lack of infrastructure and development, I have been very active in raising the profile of football in the developing world.

Nakhid stressed that he was not suggesting increased monetary hand-outs. But programs tailor-made for individual nations and properly monitored to lessen corruption.

The CFU president, who extended an invitation to Nakhid, was implicated in the Mohamed Bin Hammam bribery scandal that brought down Warner, four years ago, while Tim Kee served as vice president to the crooked Trinidad football official for nearly two decades.

So how could Nakhid hope to affect this cancer, particularly when his base is ravaged by it?

The former Caribbean MVP said he hopes the US Department of Justices arrest of football officials is a wake-up call to the football body. Beyond that, he suggested that a combination of improved oversight and an appeal to the better nature of officials could help turn FIFA around.

There are 209 associations and six confederations and some will operate in ways we cannot effect, said Nakhid. We have to be pragmatic and we are not so naive to say we will have everyone holding hands and singing Kumbaya. But we believe a serious, honest undertaking of development throughout the world with philosophical undertones will appeal to their ideological notions of their selves.

We believe many officials come in for the betterment of the game but find a situation where it is easier to accept patronage than to elevate themselves and their region.

Some will be inspired by our rhetoric and want better. But some will want to cling to patronage and support a famous footballer from Europe who sends them 3,000 footballs

Nakhid has no intention of being cornered by the stereotype of a dodgy Caribbean football official, as evidenced by his own compatriot, Warner.

His own battles with Warner are well known within Trinidad football circles. His outspoken nature meant he was blacklisted from the international game for much of his adult career, despite being the countrys first real European star.

I was blacklisted from 1989 to 1994 but for one game in-between, said Nakhid. I was criticising Jack Warner before criticising Jack Warner was in-vogue and I suffered for it too, through hatchet jobs in the media and so on.

But I dont want this to seem like a get-back campaign because this is more global reaching than just Jack.

For all intents and purposes, Jack is irrelevant. He is only a reference to how things should not be done and how they should never be done again.

Nakhid also took the opportunity to discuss his interaction with former Trinidad and Tobago football icon and coach, Everald Gally Cummings, who left the then Switzerland-based midfielder out of his Strike Squad team in the 1990 World Cup qualifying campaign.

I have no problem with Gally, said Nakhid. Maybe (my omission from the Strike Squad) was just due to a clash of personalities, which could happen. Right now, I am prepared to give Gally the benefit of the doubt

Maybe he thought I couldnt fit into that team. I would strongly differ. I think I would have been perfect for that team, especially where I was at that time.

But that is football.

A silky playmaker in his heyday, Nakhid travelled to Switzerland for a trial with top flight club, Grasshopperson the recommendation of FIFA technical committee member Walter Gaggas a 24-year-old university graduate in mid-1988.

By the following February, German coach Ottmar Hitzfeld gave Nakhid his competitive debut and an appearance in the European Cup soon followed.

Nakhid, who waited two months before he was allowed to train with the Grasshoppers first team, was angry that it took so long.

My chance came when I was allowed to play in a scrimmage between the team, said Nakhid. Hitzfeld basically told me I had 20 minutes and I went to town. I was a dribbler in those days

At the time, I was very critical of Ottmar But I understand now that it was his first big club and he didnt want to take risks.

I was coming from a university in the States and they were in the European Cup at the time and had beaten teams like Real Madrid and Liverpool in the past.

Hitzfeld left Grasshoppers three years later for Borussia Dortmund and a career that saw him become one of only five managers to win the European Cup with two different clubs.

Nakhid spent four seasons with Grasshoppers and also played professionally in Europe with Waregem (Belgium), PAOK (Greece) and Malm FF (Sweden). It was a rarity then for European teams to use central midfielders from the developing world.

I didnt accept the status quo, he said. I was told many times over when I first came to Grasshoppers that I was coming from a region without a serious culture of football. They felt we didnt have the tactical and mental acumen to run the show

I was stigmatised because of the region I came from and I wanted to change that.

At Malm, Nakhid met an inspired another talented maverick.

In Chapter Five of I am Zlatan, Sweden and PSG star Zlatan Ibrahimovic recalled his first meeting with Nakhid during pre-season, in which the Trinidadian challenged him to make the most of his talents.

If someone else had said it I would have hardly believed in it, said Ibrahimovic, in his biography. But this guy, he apparently knew something. He had been around the world and it went like a dagger through my body.

Was I really a pro talent in the making? I started to believe in it. For the first time I really did that and sharpened my play even more

The guy from Trinidad Tobago had indeed prepared me for (professional football).

Nakhid speaks six languages: English, Greek, German, Arabic, French and Spanish; and has lived in Trinidad, United States, Switzerland, Greece, Belgium, United Arab Emirates and Lebanon.

He gave his interpretation of Bests quote about the Trinidad and Tobago globalist.

Where we have come from with our diverse background of African, Indian, Chinese, Syrian and European heritages, said Nakhid, we were pushed into this melting pot to forge our identities. Globalism is a struggle to reach a certain identity.

They in Europe have more global access but they are not globalists and that position at FIFA needs a true globalist. And looking at where I have lived and how I have lived, my track record speaks for itself.

Nakhid pointed to his arrest and a five day stint in a Lebanese cell, in April 1997, for helping exploited African players, as evidence of his character and willingness to stand against wrongdoing. He challenged the European media to scrutinise Platinis own record.

Now that Blatter is going, we hope the media looks at the people who are going up and their track records, said Nakhid, who pointed to the role Platini and his son, Laurent, played in Qatars controversial 2022 World Cup bid. Look at Platinis record and you will see a double standard by the European media in terms of their willingness to scrutinise their own leader

The scrutiny should not only be on those who resigned but those who are seeking the post. They should be scrutinised even more so

Platini has done many of the same things he accuses Blatter of and he was making trips with Warner and Jeffrey Webb and so on. But there are no in-depth investigation into those.

Nakhid insisted that, if FIFAs members truly want reform, they will ignore Platini and vote for the Trinidadian instead.

We want this to be a campaign of ideas and hopefully delegates will consider the substance of these ideas and then let the best man win, Nakhid told Wired868. I am not looking to divide Confederations and voting blocs, I want everyone to look at my manifesto and campaign and vote for me, including UEFA.

Now is the time we feel that, instead of UEFA calling the Caribbean for a vote, I want, based on ideas, to be able to call UEFA and ask them to vote for me.

The rejection of Michel Platini must be a fundamental step regarding the future configuration of FIFA.

Agreed but I believe Nakhid will strengthen his campaign by also coming up with a strategy to address match fixing and bribery in bids, matches and players..

I understand that falls under the corruption banner but further insight into that area and possible solutions would help his campaign.. I await the manifesto..

Nakhid to vie for FIFA presidency
T&T Newsday Reports.


EX-TRINIDAD and Tobago football team captain and assistant team coach David Nakhid has thrown his hat into the ring as a presidential candidate for the global governing body for football, FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association).

The 51-year-old Nakhid, as well as veteran TT journalist Josanne Leonard a member of his campaign team were speaking to renowned Barbados broadcaster Julian Rogers yesterday morning during a live interview at Rogers Radio Caribbean (94.1 FM) in Antigua.

The presidential vacancy arose on June 2 when the 79-year-old Sepp Blatter of Switzerland resigned amidst the recent FIFA corruption scandal, which saw various officials, including ex-TT football honcho Jack Warner, accused by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of wire fraud, racketeering and money laundering.

The elections will take place on February 26, 2016 at the FIFA headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.

Other notable names to announce their desire to run for the hot seat are legendary midfield trio Michel Platini of France (the current UEFA president), Diego Maradona of Argentina and Zico of Brazil, as well as Musa Bility.

Nakhid stated, we are looking at the Caribbean and were seeing a certain vacuum in leadership, especially with the turmoil that is taking place within FIFA, within CONCACAF and, by extension, CFU. Weve been looking at that over the last few months and we feel now is the time for someone to step up from this part of the world, in a positive light, very much different to what it has been before, and take us forward. Declaring his candidacy, Nakhid, who has 35 international caps for Trinidad and Tobago between 1992 and 2005, said, we do it in a positive way, which shows the Caribbean in a real light. With everything in mind, to explore and to definitely optimise the Caribbeans potential. Nakhid came to prominence as a midfielder with St Marys College during the early 1980s before playing for American University in the United States between 1985-87.

He played for a number of clubs Grasshoppers in Switzerland (1988-92), KSV Waregem in Belgium (1992-94), PAOK Saloniki in Greece (1994-95), Al Ansar in Lebanon (1995-1996 and 2000-03), Joe Public (1997), New England Revolution in the US (1998), Malmo FF in Sweden (1999), Al Mabarrah in Lebanon (2003-04) and Caledonia AIA (2005).

Nakhid is currently the founder and director of the David Nakhid International Football Academy in Lebanon which gained international fame recently for providing opportunities for previously rejected young Palestine footballers.

He pointed out, I need to really try and solidify the Caribbean membership. Weve been underdeveloped, when you look at the infrastructure throughout the Caribbean, its still as it was 25-30 years ago.

Nakhid disclosed that he has been traversing the Caribbean, holding discussions with a number of footballing administrators.

We have to try to change that mentality that has prevailed, whereby we cede to somebody from outside, he insisted. When you look at the candidates mentioned, for a global position, there is no one mentioned from the Caribbean region because we dont see ourselves in that light. Referring to Warners lengthy stay in FIFA, which lasted for three decades, Nakhid said, we thought that we sat at the table, with the past leadership, and then realised we never sat at the table.

Someone sat at the table and pursued his own agenda, not the agenda of the Caribbean as a whole. We need to shift the paradigm in a positive direction and let people know that the Caribbean is here and (we) can take things forward. We have to shift FIFA from that Euro-centric look. He admitted, people would be surprised, because they know David Nakhid as a football player. Ive been an activist for most of my life.

Ive been critical of the past leadership in the Caribbean, before it was in vogue to be critical of it, and Ive suffered the consequences of it many times over. Asked what difference he will bring to FIFA if elected, Nakhid replied, Ive played in all the confederations that you can think off.

I speak five or six languages. I have the academic background that is needed for FIFA, more so than any of the others that have put themselves forward. However, he knows that his pathway to FIFA will not be smooth sailing.

Its about votes, said Nakhid.

Its about securing nominations, the official nominations which requires five Federations. We sincerely hope that we can really put someone from the Caribbean forward.

We have to get that nomination before October 26, and that gives us about five months to campaign.

Sancho throws support behind Nakhid
By JOEL BAILEY (NEWSDAY).


MINISTER OF Sport Brent Sancho has thrown his support behind his former Trinidad and Tobago football teammate David Nakhid, who has decided to run for the presidency of FIFA, the games global governing body.

Its always good to hear an ex-player, especially one from these shores, who would have excelled and did well for our country, and persevering for the other guys. Ive always felt that past players make better administrators, said the 38-year-old Sancho, who played with Nakhid on the national team from 1999-2005.

He added, I believe they have an inside knowledge that probably somebody that hasnt played the game. Its always good to see that our past players are continuing to strive. Im quite happy to hear that. Nakhid has no prior experience as a football administrator, but Sancho thinks that the ex-TT captain has what it takes to excel in such a role.

He is a very popular person and a popular player, said Sancho of the 51-year-old Nakhid. He was a good leader for this country, on and off the field. I cant see it necessarily being an issue. The main thing obviously is good governance and making sure that the vision that he has is one that would take football forward in the Caribbean and, by extension, CONCACAF. The last Trinidad and Tobago football administrator to gain global prominence was Jack Warner, who resigned as a vice-president of FIFA in 2011 after the cash for votes scandal, ahead of the FIFA presidential elections later that year.

Questioned if Nakhid would be a positive influence, if elected, as FIFA president, after Warners exit, the Sports Minister responded,its difficult to say. He doesnt have a track record or such in that position.

I wish him all the best and he definitely has my support, Sancho ended.

Candidacies should be evaluated on their message, their [moral] authority and core values, their proposed path forward, their context, their sustaining and underlying principles, the wholesomeness of the ideas presented/represented, any implicit negatives, the viability of the candidacy lending material value to the debate, and on pragmatic cost-benefit analysis.

Almost Everyone remembers that... The only thing I can say is, in other sports the teams share their videos to the opponent... It's normal place...JW and them made their money as well.. What Nakhid did was wrong but people can be forgiven for their past indiscretions... It was bitterness and treachery to a certain extent, but we prevailed regardless, God had that preordained for us, not even Nakhid could have stopped that..

In terms of the racist remark, can anyone share what was that racist remark? I forgot about that...

Nakhid supports this current team I believe and he wishes them well so I believe he's moved on and may have realized he made his mistakes and was sorry for it... Maybe he should address them and put it to rest...

Tim Kee backs Nakhids bid for FIFA president
By JOEL BAILEY (Express).


DAVID NAKHID has received a glowing endorsement in his bid to become the next president of FIFA from Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) president Raymond Tim Kee.

On Tuesday, Nakhid declared his intention to run for president of FIFA during a live interview on the Rogers Radio Caribbean in Antigua. Tim Kee, in a telephone interview yesterday, spoke in glowing terms of the former Trinidad and Tobago midfielder and team captain.

David Nakhid is somebody for who I have utmost respect, and this goes way back, said Tim Kee.

I was one of the very few people (in local football administration) who made him comfortable.

I respected him, his independence of thought and he is a stickler for what he believes is right, he continued.

He does not compromise anything in his mind which is not right. Tim Kee pointed out, David Nakhid is a man who is well-qualified.

He has two different degrees (International Relations and Economics from American University in Washington DC), he speaks several different languages.

I know he has been in what you call the big leagues. I was kind of surprised when that indication came to me but if David gets the opportunity, he has the credentials to do great things as a leader in football. Tim Kee is confident that Nakhid can be a worthwhile replacement for Sepp Blatter, who announced his resignation as FIFA president in June, in the midst of the FIFA corruption scandal.

When somebody has to do a job, the main thing you look at is the credentials, said the TT FA boss.

David is (51) so he acquired the right age and the level of experience which will serve him in good stead.

Hes an International Relations man, he knows how to treat with the world, Tim Kee added.

Hes bright, he has potential and that is what you need to recruit, somebody who does not have baggage, who is coming into a new environment and could change things around.

David is a good man and I wish that he gets the support that is required to be among the candidates. He went on to state, I think David is a good candidate, as long as he pursues it further.

David and I have chatted, hell throw things out and well chat.

If hes really geared for this, its something I think will be a good thing.

I dont know who we have in the Caribbean who can rival David in terms of qualifications (and) I dare say, in CONCACAF even, when I look around at all those guys that are involved at the highest level, Tim Kee emphasised.

David is a smart guy and a honest, sincere person. You wouldnt be getting any six-fora- nine with David.

Over the years, he has mellowed a lot.

Hes a lot more suave and a lot more smooth, as compared to how he was when he was playing for Trinidad (and Tobago). Asked about the likelihood that Nakhid may receive criticism over his lack of experience in football administration, Tim Kee replied, people had said that about (Franz) Beckenbauer, when he was coach of Germany, he was a (great) player.

(Michel) Platini was a great player before he went in to UEFA, and he turned to be a good and excellent president of Europe.

But he had no experience before that, in administration.

I don't think it's a matter of being a line jumper, it's who the line jumper is and are they aligned with the goals and vision of Europe or more specifically the FA... The illusion of patronage is something Nakhid has to be very careful about... Especially in CFU..

David Nakhid kolejnym kandydatem na prezydenta FIFA
Przeglad Sportowy


(http://www.przegladsportowy.pl/m/Repozytorium.Podglad.aspx/-680/-382/przegladsportowy/635750118604475517.jpg)

Były pomocnik piłkarskiej reprezentacji Trynidadu i Tobago David Nakhid zapowiedział, że będzie kandydował w wyborach na stanowisko prezydenta Międzynarodowej Federacji Piłki Nożnej (FIFA).

Nakhid, ktry aktualnie prowadzi szkłkę piłkarską w Libanie, wrcił na Karaiby, gdzie będzie starał się zdobyć poparcie działaczy miejscowej federacji. Kierujący światowym futbolem od 17 lat Szwajcar Joseph Blatter zapowiedział 2 czerwca, że ustąpi ze stanowiska. Szwajcar cztery dni po reelekcji na piątą kadencję ogłosił rezygnację. To pokłosie afery korupcyjnej i zatrzymań w Genewie wysokich rangą działaczy FIFA.

27 maja, tuż przed kongresem FIFA, na zlecenie amerykańskiego wymiaru sprawiedliwości aresztowano w Zurychu siedmiu działaczy FIFA, ktrzy usłyszeli zarzuty korupcyjne. Chodzi o kwoty w sumie ponad 100 mln dolarw. Osobne śledztwo Szwajcarw skupia się na nieprawidłowościach przy przyznaniu Rosji i Katarowi praw do organizacji mistrzostw świata w 2018 i 2022 roku. Do nieprawidłowości miało dojść rwnież przy wyborze gospodarzy dwch wcześniejszych mundiali - w Niemczech (2006) i RPA (2010).

Nakhid nie jest pierwszym kandydatem na stanowisko po Blatterze. Już 18 czerwca chęć kandydowania zapowiedział prezes Liberyjskiego Związku Piłki Nożnej Musa Bility. Wcześniej podobne zamiary wyrazili słynny brazylijski piłkarz Zico i Argentyńczyk Diego Maradona. Jako drugi na listę kandydatw "wpisał" się południowokoreański biznesmen i polityk 61-letni Chung Mong-joon. W przeszłości był już wiceprezydentem piłkarskiej centrali, a także kierował krajową federacją.

Pod koniec lipca walkę o schedę po Blatterze zapowiedział szef europejskiej unii (UEFA) Francuz Michel Platini. "Czasem przychodzi taka chwila, kiedy trzeba wziąć swj los we własne ręce. To bardzo przemyślana decyzja. Przed jej podjęciem brałem pod uwagę zarwno przyszłość futbolu, jak i swoją. Przez blisko pł wieku FIFA była rządzona tylko przez dwie osoby. Chcę przywrcić tej organizacji szacunek, na jaki zasługuje" - zadeklarował Platini.

Podczas majowych wyborw Platini nie kandydował, ale publicznie poparł jedynego kontrkandydata Blattera - jordańskiego księcia Alego bin Al-Husseina. Przegrał on jednak stosunkiem głosw 73-133.

David Nakhid (51) uit Trinidad en Tobago mengt zich in de strijd om het voorzitterschap van de wereldvoetbalbond (FIFA). De ex-international voegt zich bij UEFA-preses Michel Platini en de Zuid-Koreaan Chung Mong-Joon, die zich al eerder meldden als mogelijke opvolger van Sepp Blatter (foto).

Nakhid speelde als middenvelder onder meer voor KSV Waregem (Bel), PAOK Saloniki (Gri) en Malm FF (Zwe). Hij kwam als international tot 89 interlands, waarin hij 24 keer trefzeker was.

Hij hoopt dat hij de steun krijgt van minstens vijf landen uit het Carabisch gebied, zodat hij zich officieel aan kan melden als mogelijke opvolger van zittende voorzitter Blatter.

Op 26 februari 2016 wordt de opvolger van de 79-jarige Zwitser gekozen tijdens een presidentsverkiezing. Kandidaten kunnen zich tot 26 oktober officieel aanmelden. Daarvoor hebben zij de steun nodig van vijf bij de FIFA aangesloten landen.

Mantan gelandang Timnas Trinidad-Tobago David Nakhid muncul sebagai nama baru yang mencalonkan diri pada pemilihan Februari untuk menggantikan Sepp Blatter sebagai presiden Federation Iinternationale de Football Association (FIFA).

Nakhid, yang tinggal di Lebanon tempat dia pernah bermain untuk klub Al Ansar, kembali ke Karibia untuk mencari dukungan dari ofisial-ofisial setempat.

Untuk dapat menjadi kandidat, pria berusia 51 tahun itu memerlukan dukungan sedikitnya lima asosiasi sepak bola nasional, persyaratan yang membuat sebagian orang batal mengajukan diri pada pencalonan-pencalonan sebelumnya.

"Saya telah meletakkan topi saya di gelanggang dan kami tidak sabar untuk menantang," ucapnya pada Rabu (12/8/2015).

Nakhid optimistis mendapatkan sedikitnya lima dukungan. Dia telah bertemu presiden persatuan sepak bola Karibia (CFU) Gordon Derrick di Antigua dan telah diundang untuk berbicara kepada komite eksekutif CFU pada Sabtu 15/8/2015).

Pada kesempatan terpisah Derrick juga membenarkan bahwa Nakhid akan diberi kesempatan beraudiensi.

CFU memiliki 25 dari 35 suara dari Konfederasi Sepak Bola Amerika Utara, Amerika Tengah, Karibia (Concacaf).

"Fokus FIFA mestinya pada perkembangan bersamaan dengan pengawasan yang layak," kata Nakhid, yang pernah mengkritik keras mantan wakil presiden FIFA asal Trinidad sekaligus mantan presiden Concacaf Jack Warner.

"Wilayah ini berada di bawah perkembangan yang kurang layak akibat kepemimpinan tidak kompeten yang hadir dari bagian ini di dunia. Jack Warner tidak pernah benar-benar mewakili wilayah ini," ucapnya.

Sejauh ini presiden FIFA Michel Platini, mantan wakil presiden FIFA Chung Moon Joon dari Korea Selatan, mantan pemain Brazil Zico, dan ketua federasi sepak bola Liberia Musa Bility telah mengatakan bahwa mereka akan mencalonkan diri pada pemilihan yang digelar pafa 26 Februari 2016.

Pangeran Jordania Ali bin Al Hussen, yang dikalahkan Blatter pada pemilihan Mei 2015, juga tengah mempertimbangkan untuk kembali mengajukan diri, sedangkan Tokyo Sexwale asal Afrika Selatan mengatakan masih pikir-pikir sebelum menentukan sikap.

Nakhid memiliki ikatan yang cukup kuat dengan Zurich,kota di Swiss di mana markas FIFA berada. Dia bermain untuk klub kota itu Grasshoppers pada awal 1990-an, dan juga bermain di Liga AS untuk New England Revolution.

David Nakhid kolejnym kandydatem na prezydenta FIFA
Przeglad Sportowy

Były pomocnik piłkarskiej reprezentacji Trynidadu i Tobago David Nakhid zapowiedział, że będzie kandydował w wyborach na stanowisko prezydenta Międzynarodowej Federacji Piłki Nożnej (FIFA).

Nakhid, ktry aktualnie prowadzi szkłkę piłkarską w Libanie, wrcił na Karaiby, gdzie będzie starał się zdobyć poparcie działaczy miejscowej federacji. Kierujący światowym futbolem od 17 lat Szwajcar Joseph Blatter zapowiedział 2 czerwca, że ustąpi ze stanowiska. Szwajcar cztery dni po reelekcji na piątą kadencję ogłosił rezygnację. To pokłosie afery korupcyjnej i zatrzymań w Genewie wysokich rangą działaczy FIFA.

27 maja, tuż przed kongresem FIFA, na zlecenie amerykańskiego wymiaru sprawiedliwości aresztowano w Zurychu siedmiu działaczy FIFA, ktrzy usłyszeli zarzuty korupcyjne. Chodzi o kwoty w sumie ponad 100 mln dolarw. Osobne śledztwo Szwajcarw skupia się na nieprawidłowościach przy przyznaniu Rosji i Katarowi praw do organizacji mistrzostw świata w 2018 i 2022 roku. Do nieprawidłowości miało dojść rwnież przy wyborze gospodarzy dwch wcześniejszych mundiali - w Niemczech (2006) i RPA (2010).

Nakhid nie jest pierwszym kandydatem na stanowisko po Blatterze. Już 18 czerwca chęć kandydowania zapowiedział prezes Liberyjskiego Związku Piłki Nożnej Musa Bility. Wcześniej podobne zamiary wyrazili słynny brazylijski piłkarz Zico i Argentyńczyk Diego Maradona. Jako drugi na listę kandydatw "wpisał" się południowokoreański biznesmen i polityk 61-letni Chung Mong-joon. W przeszłości był już wiceprezydentem piłkarskiej centrali, a także kierował krajową federacją.

Pod koniec lipca walkę o schedę po Blatterze zapowiedział szef europejskiej unii (UEFA) Francuz Michel Platini. "Czasem przychodzi taka chwila, kiedy trzeba wziąć swj los we własne ręce. To bardzo przemyślana decyzja. Przed jej podjęciem brałem pod uwagę zarwno przyszłość futbolu, jak i swoją. Przez blisko pł wieku FIFA była rządzona tylko przez dwie osoby. Chcę przywrcić tej organizacji szacunek, na jaki zasługuje" - zadeklarował Platini.

Podczas majowych wyborw Platini nie kandydował, ale publicznie poparł jedynego kontrkandydata Blattera - jordańskiego księcia Alego bin Al-Husseina. Przegrał on jednak stosunkiem głosw 73-133.

David Nakhid visits Guyana to promote FIFA candidacy
Kaieteur News


Former Trinidad and Tobago international midfielder David Nakhid who recently stated that he will stand in Februarys election to replace the outgoing Sepp Blatter as president of FIFA, is in Guyana and is expected to meet Normalisation Committee of the Guyana Football Federation Chairman, Clinton Urling, sometime today.

Nakhid, who is based in Lebanon where he runs a football academy, has returned to the Caribbean seeking support from local officials.

I have put my hat in the ring and we are looking forward to the challenge, he had stated recently, adding that he was optimistic of getting the five nominations he needs to press ahead.

Kaieteur Sport ran into Nakhid at the Marriot Hotel where he is staying and solicited a comment on his visit.

In an invited comment Nakhid said he is here to meet with the chairman of the Normalisation Committee of the GFF Clinton Urling to discuss his candidacy for FIFA president.

He added that he is a long standing friend with National coach Jamaal Shabazz and has followed Guyanas football over the years. Jamaal says that Guyana is his home and as brothers he told me his home is my home so I am here, he informed.

The front runner in the race is Europes Michel Platini. Nakhid will hope to get the support of the Urling led GFF to put him in the running.

Former American University star says hes running for FIFA president
By Steven Goff (The Washington Post).


On most Mondays, Page 2 of the Sports print section features a soccer centerpiece and several notebook items geared toward a broader audience than the blog does. Some material has appeared on the Insider previously. Here are this weeks contents:

Campaign season is heating up and, with a blur of candidates tossing their hat into the ring, it has become difficult to keep tabs of favorites and dreamers ahead of the first votes being cast in February.

The Republican and Democratic primaries?

Small theater compared to the FIFA presidential election.

Sepp Blatter, the scandal-bruised head of soccers corruption-stained international governing body, is stepping aside this winter. He said he will not seek re-election, though suspicions linger about his running again. If he did, Blatter would continue receiving support from many countries that have benefited during his 17-year reign.

In the aftermath of arrests, indictments and investigations this summer, FIFA has called an extraordinary congress Feb. 26 in Zurich to elect a new leader.

The deadline for candidates to submit formal papers is Oct. 26. To get onto the ballot, one must have the support of five member nations.

The early favorite is Michel Platini, 60, the former French superstar who has headed the European confederation for eight years and engaged in an increasingly bitter feud with Blatter. Earlier this year, UEFAs opposition to Blatter led to suggestions that it withdraw from FIFA altogether.

The nastiness is growing.

On Saturday, German newspaper Welt am Sonntag reported that a dossier entitled Platini Skeleton in the Closet, (http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/08/16/us-soccer-fifa-platini-complaint-idUSKCN0QL00720150816) was being distributed to European media outlets from FIFAs Zurich headquarters. UEFA asked FIFA to investigate.

Separately, in an interview with Dutch newspaper Volkskrant, Blatter said there was an anti-FIFA virus in Nyon, the Swiss city where UEFA is based.

Other potential FIFA candidates range from former players and coaches to current and former FIFA figures: South Koreas Chung Mong Joon, who served on FIFAs executive committee and helped his country land a share of the 2002 World Cup hosting rights with Japan; Jordans Prince Ali Bin al-Hussein, who lost to Blatter in the May election; Liberian official Musa Bility; South African political activist Tokyo Sexwale; and legendary players Diego Maradona and Zico.

The latest individual to express interest is an American University graduate, David Nakhid. The Trinidad and Tobago native was a midfielder on the 1985 AU squad that lost to UCLA in the longest NCAA match in history, an eight-overtime affair at the Seattle Kingdome, won by the Bruins, 1-0.

Nakhids son, Panos, is entering his junior season at AU.

Nakhid, 51, played professionally in Belgium, Switzerland, Greece, Lebanon, Trinidad and Tobago, MLS (New England Revolution), Sweden and the United Arab Emirates over a 15-year career. He was also a national team midfielder and assistant coach. Currently, he operates a soccer academy in Beirut.

Nakhid is attempting to rally support in the Caribbean, which makes up 25 of the 35 representatives in CONCACAF, the regional governing body. He was scheduled to address the Caribbean executive committee over the weekend.

Large or small, serious or indifferent about soccer, all FIFA members wield equal power in presidential elections. Consequently, the Caribbean block carries weight, though its hard to imagine Nakhid receiving much support elsewhere.

For too long, we in the [Caribbean union] have been the handmaidens in CONCACAF, he wrote on his Facebook campaign page. The Caribbean must use its majority voting power to positively impact good corporate governance and serious development in football from the grassroots levels to the elite, within our region and in the wider global governing body.

Would like to hear Nakhid's stance on ethics in general.
What he thinks of Jackula: Angel, friend, hero, indebted for life, example for us, mentor, crook, pure duttyness, evil? Which?
Does he he want to be just like him, slightly different or making a drastic departure?
Is Tim Kee the real deal or cut from the same stinkin' cloth as Jackulito, baby Jackulito, rodent and Scampito?
What about his buddy Papa Cornmeal. & clan. More of the same social order to be recycled or time for some progressive improvements?
What should be the FIFA governing philosophy and how does one counter a deep seated culture of hard core, mafia-style corruption or is the plan to just share the spoils of corruption more evenly so Cornmeal and company and others around the world could eat ah more regulah food.

It's been just about three weeks since David Nakhid announced his intentions to run for FIFA Presidency. Some people in T&T are still trying to wrap their mind around the reality while others welcomed his decision. We got a few responses on the topic from members of the local football fraternity including Nakhid's former team mate Anthony Rougier.

Nakhid hopes to become Caribbeans first FIFA President
By Sean Devers (Kaieteur News)


Fifty-one year old former Trinidad & Tobago Footballer David Nakhid played 35 Internationals and scored eight goals for T&T between 1992 and 2005. The mid-fielder also played professionally in Belgium, Switzerland, Greece, Lebanon, Trinidad and Tobago, the United States, Sweden, and the United Arab Emirates.

Nakhid, who runs the David Nakhid International Football Academy in Lebanon, now has his sights set on the Presidency of FIFA in Februarys election to replace the outgoing 79-year-old Sepp Blatter, who on June 2, resigned amidst FIFAs corruption scandal, which saw officials, including former T&T football administrator Jack Warner, accused by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of wire fraud and money laundering. Blatter held the position of FIFA President since 1998.

The elections will take place on February 26, 2016, at the FIFA headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland.

Nakhid and his Campaign Secretary Josann Leonard (team Caribbean) met with Head of the Normalisation Committee of the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Clinton Urling at the Guyana Marriott Hotel yesterday.

A press conference was held in the conference room of the impressive Hotel and the Trinidadian, who needs five nominations before October 26 to move forward, will be hoping that after yesterdays talks in Guyana, he will garner the support of the Urling led GFF during his five-month campaign period.

Now what we need to do is become more pro-Caribbean rather than pro-UEFA or pro-Asia, it doesnt mean were anti-anyone but were pro-Caribbean in the sense that we understand our true value in this global football world. We understand what we bring to this process, and it is not a reference for a vote as it has been in the past. We then become a reference for true consultation. People then come down to Guyana and really ask you well what do you need in tangible terms, not in promises. Nakhid said.

I am extremely confident of securing the votes since I have lived in the Middle East and played in Europe but wanted to come out of our Federation, Nakhid informed.

And I think once that is done we can then try to attract support from other parts of the world, but it would be useless to enter a campaign where I cant even come out of my confederation. I think once that is done, I think the Caribbean people will get a better sense of our message when it is placed on that global forum and the rest of the world, he added.

Nakhid, who says he knows what it feels like to come from the Ghetto and playing on rough, bumpy fields as a little boy in Trinidad, made his intentions to compete during a Radio show recently in Antigua, said that real change in World Football wont happen if there is no Caribbean voice.

Nakhid explained that his candidacy is geared to position the Caribbean where it needs to be, where we have not been before.

We had the illusion of leadership- the illusion of someone at the head table of FIFA before, but we never saw anything that came down to us in the Caribbean, we need to change that. We need to posit ourselves in a position where we understand our true value politically, but also in terms of the development that is needed in the wider world of football, Nakhid explained.

The former footballer feels that if no one is there to represent the interest of Caribbean football, no one is going to be concerned about our interest.

No one from outside our region can truly reflect what is needed, he said.

Infrastructure is the most important aspect in developing Football talent in a country as large and green as Guyana and it is disappointing that there is no football Stadium here. You cant play Football on a cricket ground, the FIFA Presidential hopeful noted.

Nakhid feels that the best coaches should be sent to the youth level and the finished product sent to Coaches like Jamaal Shabazz, whom he described as a close friend and Guyana best Coach.

But in the Caribbean we tend to do things in the reverse and put the best Coaches at the senior team level. School Football is also very important since a child could be made to decide on his Football career and his academic career if he has to join a club to play football when at school. However if football is played in schools and you have a designated time for Football they will a more balanced student, Nakhid opined.

But when asked if the involvement by leading Caribbean Football officials in the FIFA scandal would be a negative factor in his ambitions for the Presidency, Nakhid answered; We need to rise above that and how we do that is that we dont be defined by whats happened in the past. We cant allow what happened in the past something beyond our control as Caribbean people. What we do is we push our vision forward, and were not afraid to push that vision forward.

He added, Now what we need to do, is if we become more pro-Caribbean rather than pro-UEFA or pro-Asia- it doesnt mean were anti-anyone- but were pro-Caribbean in the sense that we understand our true value in this global football world. We understand what we bring to this process, and it is not a reference for a vote as it has been in the past. We then become a reference for true consultation. People then come down to Guyana and really ask you well what do you need in tangible terms, not in promises.

Europes Michel Platini is considered the front runner in the race for the top job in FIFA. Other top names who have thrown their hats in ring are Diego Maradona of Argentina, Zico of Brazil and Musa Bility, the Liberian Football Association President.

But Nakhid thinks that coming from a part of the World that has a diverse culture will give him the edge in becoming the first ever FIFA President from the Caribbean.
Title: CFU endorses Nakhid for FIFA presidency; aims to recover Warner money
Post by: SWF Reporter on August 23, 2015, 04:23:19 PM
CFU endorses Nakhid for FIFA presidency; aims to recover Warner money
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868.com)


Caribbean Football Union (CFU) president Gordon Derrick has endorsed former Trinidad and Tobago football captain David Nakhids bid for the role of FIFA president, as the most unlikely presidential campaign gathered considerable traction.

Nakhid, who never worked within FIFA before or held an administrative portfolio outside of his Lebanon-based David Nakhid Soccer Academy, met Derrick two weeks ago and was subsequently invited to address the CFU in St Maarten.

The CFU President said Nakhid, who has a double major in International Relations and Economics from American University in Washington DC, gave an exceptional account of himself and the Caribbean will support him.

(Nakhid) came to me in Antigua and described his passion and why he thought he was qualified to hold such a high office in geopolitical terms, Derrick told Wired868. He convinced me that he is serious and he has the academics and international appeal I invited him to our ExCo meeting and he gave an exceptional account of himself and showed that, if given the opportunity, he can make noise in the race.

Thus far, the international media has focused on the candidacies of UEFA president and former France football star Michel Platini, who is widely considered to be the favourite, as well as Jordans Prince Ali bin Hussein, a FIFA vice president, and Chung Moon-joon, an honorary FIFA vice president and business tycoon.

Derricks endorsement could potentially change that.

The Caribbean has 25 of FIFAs 209 member associations, which is roughly 12 percent of the electorate and more than the South America and Oceania confederations combined.

However, Derrick pointed out that the CFU does not vote as a bloc anymore in the manner it did under former president Jack Warner, who was known to victimise associations that did not toe the line.

We get together and discuss matters but there is no such thing as a bloc (anymore), said Derrick. We try to convince everybody that we should vote in one direction. Last election that didnt happen, partly because of the confusion with (the arrest of CONCACAF president Jeffrey) Webb.

But I think the region will continue to come together strong and we will vote based on the needs of the Caribbean because that is who we represent.

At present, CONCACAF and the Caribbean are reeling from a string of indictments from the United States Department of Justicetwo of which were issued to Warner and Webbfor racketeering and money laundering among other charges.

Derrick himself was censured by FIFA for his role in the 2011 Mohamed Bin Hammam bribery scandal, which led to Warners disgraceful exit from the game.

But the Antiguan football administrator insisted that he did nothing wrong and never touched any of Bin Hammams brown envelopes.

Derrick said he spent the night of 10 May 2011 alongside Antigua and Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) president Everton Gonsalves and compatriot and global cricket icon Sir Viv Richards, who was in Trinidad to shoot a Johnny Walker advertisement.

The Antiguans were sanctioned for failing to report the alleged bribery to the governing body. But Derrick claimed he never saw the envelopes himself since he did not go to collect the gift bag on that same night.

And, by the following morning, he woke up to discover that something big was amiss.

When everything broke, a lot of us didnt know exactly what was going on, Derrick told Wired868. So, out of an abundance of caution, we wanted to hold out and find out what was happening (before we said anything) because it seemed like an attack on the Caribbean more than anything else.

Everyone can be armchair quarterbacks now. After all the facts are known, it is easy to say that you should have spoken earlier. But Antigua never received any money.

Nobody said there was money to be given either. (CFU officials) said please pick up your gift package.

Derrick insisted that he had always been a critic of Warners governance and he refused to sign anything in defence of the crooked Trinidadian. But he claimed that FIFA unfairly tarnished the entire region when it went after the former CFU and CONCACAF president

They painted a brush over the entire Caribbean and implicated a lot of people who didnt have anything to do with it, said Derrick. We just happened to be there (and) we wanted to find out what is happening first before we washed our laundry in public.

We were charged with loyalty and fiducial responsibility. I was reprimanded not banned. If you get a parking ticket that cant be the same thing as murder.

Derrick believes Nakhids candidacy could be the breath of fresh air that Caribbean football needs as it tries to recover from the Warner era.

It seems in football, our leaders are always negative and it is always about bobol and confusion, said Derrick, who works in Antiguas banking sector but holds a mechanical engineering degree from the Florida Institute of Technology. We need to show that is not what our region is about. There are persons of ability here and we are not inferior to anybody in terms of academics or anything else.

We want to show the world that we are a qualified people.


For his part, Nakhid has vowed to produce his manifesto in just over a week and is asking the football fraternity to judge him on his ideas rather than his influencefinancial or otherwisewithin FIFA.

In an exclusive interview with Wired868, Nakhid mused over changes within CONCACAF like the rotation of the Gold Cup and a system for developing young talent within the schools, which used Belgium as a template.

The former Caribbean Player of the Year said Platini would continue outgoing president Sepp Blatters system of patronage to the developing world, which led to more corruption than development.

Patronage extended without proper oversight is not proper patronage at all, said Nakhid. It is all well and good that football is taken to the wide areas of the world. But when money is given to build a football field and there is no oversight and nothing happens, you are just giving away money and that does not help development or anyone but the person who pocketed the money.

Platini comes from the wealthiest confederation in the world. You have to ask how can he help us or help Africa coming from on high. Why should this be a coronation for him?

FIFA should not be for the elite. FIFAs role should be to develop football throughout the world.

Derrick suggested that he too is more interested in a stronger Caribbean on the football field rather than using his post to fatten secret bank accounts.

There is little evidence that the CFU was ever anything more than a vehicle for the enrichment of football officials.

In the 1974 World Cup qualifying campaign, three of CONCACAFs top six nations came from the Caribbean while Haiti and Trinidad and Tobago finished first and second respectively.

But, after the CFUs formation in 1979, Caribbean nations slipped further and further away from the top of the confederation while, conversely, regional administrations became more influential than ever.

Warner left a penniless CFU behind when he abdicated in 2011 and it has been a bumpy ride for the Caribbean, as the body often struggled to put on tournaments on time and were plagued with administrative mishaps.

Still, Derrick pointed to the July Gold Cup as evidence of real progress in the region as all four Caribbean nations advanced to the knockout round while Jamaica beat United States for a place in the final.

The inaugural Womens Caribbean Cup in 2014 also preceded Trinidad and Tobagos exciting campaign in which the Women Soca Warriors came within 90 minutes of earning the regions first qualifying spot at a FIFA Womens World Cup.

The Women Warriors were eventually edged 1-0 by Ecuador in a two-legged contest.

I want all our teams to be competitive so when (the bigger nations) play us, we are respected and they know we are not walkovers, said Derrick, who shares Nakhids dream for a Caribbean professional league.

He explained that, despite the Caribbeans political clout within the confederation, its programmes are inadequately financed by CONCACAF. And he revealed that he is considering his legal options to recoup millions meant for the CFU, including the controversial US$10 million South Africa Diaspora Legacy fund, that were allegedly misappropriated by Warner.

We only get a subsidy of US$20,000 for a four-team (club) tournament when it costs US$150,000 on average to put it on, said the CFU president. Gate receipts can only do so much and sponsors are not coming forward. We have to solve that; and that is what the leaders of the region are supposed to be doing and making cases to CONCACAF to ease us up.

When I heard about the US$10 million dollars that was supposed to come to CFU. Not CONCACAF eh; the CFU!

Do you know what that could have done for our region in terms of development? And that is just the tip of the iceberg.

We will have to see what legal recourse there can be and if we can recoup that money somehow. I have sought legal advice but we have been advised to hold strain until we see what the outcome (of the US Department of Justice action) is.

Unlike the previous CFU president, Derrick is far from CONCACAFs negotiating table and, despite speaking for two-thirds of the confederation, does not even have a position on its executive committee. Although Derrick was the Caribbeans elected leader, he was overshadowed by Webb, who was Blatters pick as CONCACAF president and was elected unopposed to the confederations throne.

I was elected (as CFU president) in 2012 and, in February 2013, I raised the issue about having a place on the CONCACAF ExCo, said Derrick. But the executive committee felt Webb was already there and he was a Caribbean man My argument was the position of CFU president should be an integral part of the CONCACAF executive because he needs to be there so he can bring knowledge down to his members.

But the members didnt agree. They wanted to go along with the then leader who was a Caribbean man and part of the CFU. That was their rationale.

What has happened now has brought credence to my feeling that the president of all the representative bodies should be there (on the executive). Not just the CFU president but the UNCAF (Central American Football Union) president also.

Derrick said he was stunned by the racketeering charges laid against Webb.

I am still in shock and denial over Jeff (Webb), he said. I dont want to believe what I am hearing because it doesnt look good or sound good.

But Webbs absence does leave a vacancy at the helm of the confederation. At present, Jamaicas Horace Burrell, Cubas Luis Hernandez and Turks and Caicos Islands Sonia Bien-Aime are the Caribbeans only representatives on the CONCACAF executive committee.

If Derrick maintains the confidence of the Caribbean delegates, a shake-up within the confederation is almost inevitable.

Nakhid would appear to be the first salvo for the supposed new image of the region.

Derrick chuckled when Wired868 pointed out that things did not work out very well the last time Caribbean officials supported a Trinidadian.

It is a great irony, said Derrick, with a laugh. I think it would be Shakespearean. But maybe that is what is required.

Trinidad produces one kind of man in Warner and then shows the world it can produce another in Nakhid.


Nakhid, who speaks six languages, has to make the rest of the world believe it too. He said he will offer delegates the chance to create a better FIFA and strengthen their own associations rather than give them brown envelopes and free footballs.

There are 209 associations and six confederations and some will operate in ways we cannot effect, Nakhid told Wired868, in a previous interview. We have to be pragmatic and we are not so naive to say we will have everyone holding hands and singing Kumbaya. But we believe a serious, honest undertaking of development throughout the world with philosophical undertones will appeal to their ideological notions of their selves.

We believe many officials come in for the betterment of the game but find a situation where it is easier to accept patronage than to elevate themselves and their region.

Some will be inspired by our rhetoric and want better. But some will want to cling to patronage and support a famous footballer from Europe who sends them 3,000 footballs

With support from the Caribbean, he can turn his attention to the Middle East where he would presumably be supported by the Lebanon association. A visit to Africa is also on the cards.

Nakhid potentially has as many as 25 associations in his corner. But he still needs another 80 votes if he is to succeed Blatter at the FIFA Congress on 26 February 2016.

CFU endorses Nakhid for FIFA presidency; aims to recover Warner money
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868.com)

Caribbean Football Union (CFU) president Gordon Derrick has endorsed former Trinidad and Tobago football captain David Nakhids bid for the role of FIFA president, as the most unlikely campaign gathered considerable traction.
Nakhid, who never worked within FIFA before or held an administrative portfolio outside of his Lebanon-based David Nakhid Soccer Academy, met Derrick two weeks ago and was subsequently invited to address the CFU in St Maarten.
The CFU President said Nakhid, who has a double major in International Relations and Economics from American University in Washington DC, gave an exceptional account of himself and the Caribbean will support him.
(Nakhid) came to me in Antigua and described his passion and why he thought he was qualified to hold such a high office in geopolitical terms, Derrick told Wired868. He convinced me that he is serious and he has the academics and international appeal I invited him to our ExCo meeting and he gave an exceptional account of himself and showed that, if given the opportunity, he can make noise in the race.
Thus far, the international media has focused on the candidacies of UEFA president and former France football star Michel Platini, who is widely considered to be the favourite, as well as Jordans Prince Ali bin Hussein, a FIFA vice president, and Chung Moon-joon, an honorary FIFA vice president and business tycoon.
Derricks endorsement could potentially change that.
The Caribbean has 25 of FIFAs 209 member associations, which is roughly 12 percent of the electorate and more than the South America and Oceania confederations combined.
However, Derrick pointed out that the CFU does not vote as a bloc anymore in the manner it did under former president Jack Warner, who was known to victimise associations that did not toe the line.
We get together and discuss matters but there is no such thing as a bloc (anymore), said Derrick. We try to convince everybody that we should vote in one direction. Last election that didnt happen, partly because of the confusion with (the arrest of CONCACAF president Jeffrey) Webb.
But I think the region will continue to come together strong and we will vote based on the needs of the Caribbean because that is who we represent.
At present, CONCACAF and the Caribbean are reeling from a string of indictments from the United States Department of Justicetwo of which were issued to Warner and Webbfor racketeering and money laundering among other charges.
Derrick himself was censured by FIFA for his role in the 2011 Mohamed Bin Hammam bribery scandal, which led to Warners disgraceful exit from the game.
But the Antiguan football administrator insisted that he did nothing wrong and never touched any of Bin Hammams brown envelopes.
Derrick said he spent the night of 10 May 2011 alongside Antigua and Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) president Everton Gonsalves and compatriot and global cricket icon Sir Viv Richards, who was in Trinidad to shoot a Johnny Walker advertisement.
The Antiguans were sanctioned for failing to report the alleged bribery to the governing body. But Derrick claimed he never saw the envelopes himself since he did not go to collect the gift bag on that same night.
And, by the following morning, he woke up to discover that something big was amiss.
When everything broke, a lot of us didnt know exactly what was going on, Derrick told Wired868. So, out of an abundance of caution, we wanted to hold out and find out what was happening (before we said anything) because it seemed like an attack on the Caribbean more than anything else.
Everyone can be armchair quarterbacks now. After all the facts are known, it is easy to say that you should have spoken earlier. But Antigua never received any money.
Nobody said there was money to be given either. (CFU officials) said please pick up your gift package.
Derrick insisted that he had always been a critic of Warners governance and he refused to sign anything in defence of the crooked Trinidadian. But he claimed that FIFA unfairly tarnished the entire region when it went after the former CFU and CONCACAF president.

Divide and conquer... Is what Nakhid needs to watch out for, the fact they don't vote as bloc anymore is ridiculous ... One good thing is that Warner had them voting as a bloc, they should have continued that with the right people in charge... Member nations would then be susceptible to being bought by rivals of Nakhid..

Don't be surprised this election is won or lost under the table...

He feels he will achieve the required 5 nominations. There are rumours that he may get the backing of Blatters supporters. That, plus the Caribbean, Middle East and the anti Platini cabal in UEFA could make it an interesting election.

TTFA Statement Regarding David Nakhid's FIFA Presidential bid

Issued on September 10th, 2015; Original available here (https://docs.com/ttfa-media/7896/ttfa-supports-david-nakhid).

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association will be backing David Nakhid in the next FIFA Presidential election.

A unanimous decision was taken by the TTFA Executive Committee on Thursday evening to support the former National Senior Team captain. The former Grasshoppers FC midfielder met with members of the TTFA for discussions on his bid to be the next FIFA President which he launched last month.

The TTFA, led by President Raymond Tim Kee, reviewed the manifesto for change proposed by Nakhid and believes it provides the basis for a fresh start for FIFA. The local governing body believes that it is the right time for new blood to be brought in and that Nakhid is capable of leading the world governing body.

At a meeting of the Executive Committee on Thursday, there was a unanimous decision taken to back Mr Nakhid in the next FIFA Presidential election. We are one for improved governance and transparency at FIFA and it is our belief that Mr Nakhid has the right intentions and qualities for the position, President Tim Kee stated.

The focus now has to be on the best interest of the region and the world. The executive committee was impressed by Mr Nakhid's vision for the development of Caribbean football and he displayed the best understanding of the unique needs and great potential of the region, the TTFA President added.

Nakhid, who is based in Lebanon where he runs the David Nakhid International Football School, needs the backing of five national associations in order to be a candidate. The TTFA is now among those associations that will be backing the 51-year-old American University graduate.

Nakhid also met with members of the Caribbean Football Union last month to gather support.

With just six months to go before FIFA elects a new president, the pool of candidates has grown to seven. The other men in the race are Frances Michel Platini, Jordans Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein, former Nigerian player Segun Odegbami, Chung Mong-Joon of South Korea, former Brazilian player Zico and Musa Bility of Liberia.

The election to find a successor to Sepp Blatter will be held in Zurich on February 26th, 2016.

Ex-player Nakhid challenges Europe's power, wealth of rivals in pitch for FIFA presidency
By Rob Harris (Associated Press)


Between bursts of tactical advice to youngsters on a soccer field in Lebanon, David Nakhid set out his vision for transforming FIFA.

To many in world soccer, Nakhid will be as unknown as the 12-year-old boys in the academy team under his guidance this Sunday morning. But the former captain of Trinidad and Tobago's national team is now appealing to FIFA's 209 members to entrust him with replacing Sepp Blatter and overhauling perhaps the most discredited institution in sport.

It says much about the culture of fear in football politics that Nakhid avoids naming the five federations who nominated him to stand for the FIFA presidency.

"People are afraid ... if I should not win the presidency there might be recriminations," Nakhid said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Sunday. "Imagine that."

Even as corruption and bribery scandals engulf football, Nakhid wants to put the game itself at the top of his election agenda.

"We can talk about transparency and corruption ad infinitum," he said. "In the end the way to address things is if you really have to address the problem about the lack of development.

"Development happens on the field not in offices. They (FIFA currently) stay in their offices and give out money ... the whole remedy for them is throw money at it."

Nakhid wants to distinguish himself from his rivals by accentuating his connection to the game on the field as a player in the United States, Europe and Middle East before taking on coaching jobs and opening an academy in Lebanon.

Ahead of the Oct. 26 cut-off, only two others have asked to be approved as candidates so far. They have a far higher profile, but only one is likely to be declared eligible: Former FIFA Vice President Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, the Jordan federation head, and UEFA President Michel Platini, who is in his second week of a 90-day suspension as he is investigated by FIFA's ethics committee.

Asian Football Confederation president Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalif of Bahrain is also considering entering the race.

"I'm not Mr. Moneybags, I have no luxury of being a prince or being with deep pockets but what I do have is message," Nakhid said.

Nakhid wants to stop wealth and power in the game converging in Europe to the detriment of leagues even in established territories like Brazil.

"The global model is untenable, you have a system where all the European countries are going to annihilate the powerhouses of other nations," Nakhid said. "Europe has to be more equitable and more honest in how they handle global football. They have a responsibility.

"Europe still complain they want money for the players who represent (teams) in the World Cup because they have that power. They are organized to that extent. But what about the rest of the world ... that is marginalized, that is left out. Who presents their case?"

As he kept one eye on the players under his guidance on Sunday morning in Lebanon, Sunday's 30-minute interview is punctuated by shouting orders to the youngsters "wide, wide, wide" while drawing footballing analogies for his campaign messages.

"Expansion without depth equals stagnation," Nakhid said, pointing to how squads require balance of depth of talent. "Without depth you never get true development."

Although Blatter has turned FIFA into a $5-billion behemoth over the last four years, Nakhid contends that the cash dispersed to nations is not filtering down to projects where it is most needed.

Nakhid highlights the incongruity of India, with a population of more than 1.2 billion and vibrant footballing fan base, having never played at a World Cup.

When Nakhid goes on the campaign trail, the name of compatriot Jack Warner is likely to come up.

The former FIFA Vice President and CONCACAF leader was banned from the game for life earlier this month after being indicted on bribery charges in the United States.

But Nakhid has challenged Warner's power for much of his life, first as a player and then an assistant coach for Trinidad and Tobago's 2006 World Cup team.

"When I was 24 years old I labeled him the consummate liar because I knew he was never for football," the 51-year-old Nakhid said.

Nakhid insists that's exactly what he is.

A player in Europe between 1988 and 1995 for Grasshoppers in Switzerland, Waregem in Belgium and PAOK in Greece, Nakhid moved to Lebanon to join Al Ansar before signing up with the New England Revolution in Major League Soccer between 1997 and 1998. Before ending his career at Al Ansar between 2000 and 2001, he played at Al Emirates in the United Arab Emirates.

In his post-playing career, Nakhid has run an academy in Beirut since 2006.

Having spent much of his recent career in relative anonymity, Nakhid's challenge is to convince more than a 105 football federations to vote for him in four months.

"I hope to win hearts and minds of the people and get them out of a system of patronage," he said. "That is going to be critical in the next five to ten years."

Caribbean FIFA presidential candidate takes a swipe at his main rivals
Antigua Observer


ZURICH, Switzerland (CMC) Former Trinidad and Tobago midfielder, David Nakhid, a FIFA presidential candidate, has taken a swipe at his main rivals for footballs top position.

Nakhid, who has officially launched his campaign, said neither Jordanian Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein nor the president of Asian soccer, Sheikh Salman Bin Ebrahim Al Khalifa of Bahrain would be good solutions for the troubled organisation which has been hit by a series of corruption scandals.

Prince Ali has put in his nomination and Sheikh Salman is also expected to do so before the October 26 deadline for the vote four months later.

You look at Prince Ali, someone who has been head of his own association since he was 23, 16 years. Now he wants to come and talk about reform? questioned Nakhid.

He has been there 16 years by decree. What can he tell us about reform? Has he had a challenger in those 16 years or has been there as a Prince? Come on.

Nakhid has successfully secured the five nominations from national associations needed to become a candidate and has submitted his paperwork to FIFAs election committee.

Prince Ali and Sheikh Salman are considered front-runners to replace outgoing Sepp Blatter.

He (Sheikh Salman) has been part of that circle no matter what is said, said Nakhid, who has played club football in the Swiss league and North Americas Major League Soccer and now runs a football academy in Lebanon.

He (Sheikh Salman) has been around in Asia and if you know a bit about Asian football and the acrimonious battles that were waged and then you know it is going to be hard to split these guys from anything that has gone on.

Nakhid, 51, who has played 35 times for Trinidad and Tobago between 1992 and 2005, says he wants a public debate involving all candidates vying for the position of FIFA president.

FIFA presidential race: Seven left in as David Nakhid drops out
skysports.com


Seven candidates have been declared for FIFA's presidential election, but David Nakhid is not among them.

The former Trinidad and Tobago international was one of eight men who said they would stand in the February contest to succeed Sepp Blatter.

But a statement from FIFA confirmed member associations had endorsed just seven candidates, and Nakhid's advisers say his exclusion is "a shocking development".

A formal response from Nakhid, who is currently travelling an unaware of the latest news, is expected later on Wednesday.

Michel Platini remains on the list despite the fact he is currently serving a suspension while allegations of a "disloyal payment" signed off by Blatter are investigated.

The FIFA statement said: "[Platini's] candidature will not be processed by the Ad-hoc Electoral Committee as long as such a ban is valid and in force.

"Should such a ban be lifted or expire before the FIFA presidential election, the Ad-hoc Electoral Committee would decide, depending on the respective exact point in time, on how to proceed with the candidature concerned."

All seven candidates will now be assessed by the independent Ethics Committee before the Ad-Hoc Electoral Committee makes a final decision on which candidates can stand.

FIFA presidential candidates: Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Musa Bility, Jerome Champagne, Gianni Infantino, Michel Platini, Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa, Tokyo Sexwale.

According to the UK Guardian:

"Nakhid, a former Trinidad and Tobago international, had stated his intention to stand but was absent from the list released by the governing body. Although he had the five required nominations, one of his backers broke election rules by also supporting another candidate.

In view of this, the [election] committee decided not to consider Mr Nakhids application as it did not fulfil the required five declarations of support, Fifa said in a statement."

Sound like some BS to me. He is not part of the establishment. So they can't take chances. I know this sounds conspiratorial but really?

I doh think yuh far off at all.

The voting members of FIFA have profited and benefited from Blatter forever. FIFA is a closed, insular system designed to sustain itself (like the mafia or a gang) so no one person can drive radical change without either convincing the existing members to risk their own interests for a greater payoff or removing a majority of the entrenched members. In the end, what I think FIFA fears most is transparency. Any new leader will make reforms, but a promoted insider will know how to make some reforms while keeping people's pockets whole.

The problem for Nakhid is not that he is is an outsider, it is he is an unknown quantity and people in the system cannot vouch for him. The guy from South Africa Tokyo Sexwale is an outsider but they know him from the SA WC organizing committee. Realistically speaking, they know Nakhid has a very low chance of winning, but the biggest risk of him as an unknown is allowing him a peek behind the curtain to see how the system really operates.

Don't be afraid to call the shot. The ball has been delivered. It is not necessarily conspiratorial.

If one examines the composition of the '8', and the available areas of manoevre that would be available to Nakhid as a candidate positioning for "space" through the rounds, and also galvanizing between now and February, one could discern where the vulnerabilities from within UEFA's perspective would lie.

As the only former player in the race (Platini notwithstanding), there are other factors insinuated in this development.

Moreover, if two candidates received overlapping support, why does the benefit of the support detract from one candidate, but not the other candidate?

All is not well in this equation.

T&T Football: Nakhid cries sabotage after spoilt FIFA nomination
SportsMax


Daivd Nakhid, the former Trinidad and Tobago midfielder, who is seeking to replace Sepp Blatter as president of FIFA, is crying foul after his bid was thrown out because of a spoilt nomination.

Nakhids aspirations were thrown for a loop when it was revealed that one of his five nominations, the United States Virgin Islands, had already nominated another candidate.

Under FIFAs electoral rules, that renders both nominations invalid.

Nahkid, speaking with Digicel SportsMaxs SportsMax Zone, first of all, believes the rule that has deemed him ineligible for the presidential runoff, in this particular instance, runs contrary to the fairness of the democratic process.

When you look at the circumstances, the electoral committee, by the very nature of their existence, is to ensure fair and transparent elections and that the process is held to the highest standards, Nakhid said.

Those standards, Nahkid said were breached by the committee, which he claims asked him to urge the United States Virgin Islands to send their letter of support at the last minute.

According to Nakhid, the group must have known that the USVI had already supported a bid for nomination.

If they were aware that USVI had already sent a nomination they breached their own ethics.

Its obviously an undermining of the electoral process, said Nakhid, explaining that FIFA contacted his team to let them know the USVI letter had not been received by the World Governing Body.

That fact, Nakhid said, sent alarm bells ringing in his head because FIFAs actions prove they must have been aware of another bid from the USVI.

That being said, Nakhid is appealing the decision to leave him out of the FIFA presidential race.

We have launched an appeal. Not against Hilaren, he knows what he did, against the electoral committee because they were quite aware, up until the 23rd, that the United States Virgin Islands had already submitted a bid for nomination.

Nakhid went on to point out that the Caribbean had been disenfranchised by the actions of someone from within the regions boundaries, something that, he says, happens too often.

The Caribbean people have been cut short of a voice by one of our own, Nakhid remonstrated.

The person Nakhid refers to is USVI President Hillaren Frederick, who he says never told his team he had voted for another person to be nominated.

In the last hours of the nomination he submitted a bid in order to sabotage our candidacy, Nakhid alleges, throwing out Fredericks response to the news of Nakhids ousting. Frederick said he was unaware of the article in FIFAs electoral process that negates associations bidding for more than one candidate.

Marcus Garvey, Malcolm X, they spoke about this. In our midst we would have house slaves. People who will basically sell out their people for little or no patronage and this is what we have with the United States Virgin Islands, an obviously angry Nakhid said.

Never had he mentioned to us that he had voted for someone and it was done in such a surreptitious way and we have all the emails and all the evidence.

That comment by RTK was unhelpful added no value and was not what one would expect of one who participated in the FIFA nomination process.

The language of "it is what it is" is not the language of "conviction". It is not the language of recognizing that the process was devalued (and as a stakeholder RTK should understand this. Frankly, it is a comment that is not vested with presidential consideration. Acquiescence  - as a trait in that office - is not desirable. People with convictions should express the language of conviction.

This holds for the president of the TTFA and to all aspirants to that office.

FIFA candidate David Nakhid on list of those receiving money from Mohammed Bin Hammam as he looks to get back in race
By Nick Harris (Daily Mail)


One of the candidates who entered FIFAs presidential race appears on a secret list of recipients of funding from disgraced Qatari official Mohammed Bin Hammam according to paperwork obtained by the Mail on Sunday.

But the candidate in question, David Nakhid, a former Trinidad and Tobago international midfielder now forced out of the FIFA race due to a nominations error, has denied ever receiving cash from Bin Hammam.

The paperwork summarises money distributed from bank accounts controlled by Bin Hammam and includes payments to someone with the name David Nakhid. The transfers in question include a sum of $11,390 (7,400) in April 2009 and a payment of $11,000 (7,100) in June 2009.

Bin Hammam, a former president of the Asian Football Confederation and former vice-president of FIFA has been banned for football for life after a series of bribery and conflict of interest scandals.

Nakhid, 51, was widely perceived as a breath of fresh air in the FIFA presidential race. He played at club level in Switzerland, the USA and Sweden among other places, played for his country, and launched his presidential candidacy on a platform of reform, transparency and redistribution. Since 2006 he has run a football academy in Lebanon.

In an exclusive interview last week with the Mail on Sunday, Nakhid said his presidential campaign was being funded by family and friends.

When showed the paperwork purporting to show money transferred to him from Bin Hammam, he said: I have no idea what that is Im ready to show my accounts to anyone. Ive never even met Mohammed bin Hammam, ever, in my life. I cant imagine what that [reference] is in 2009, or at any other time. Ive never met the guy. Never.

Nakhids nomination for the FIFA presidency was supported by five Caribbean FAs. The morning after the MoS interview, FIFA announced his candidacy had been deemed ineligible because one of the nominating FAs - the US Virgin Islands - had nominated more than one candidate, which is against the rules.

Therefore the USVIs nomination for him was effectively struck off, meaning he did not have the five required nominations to continue.

Nakhid is appealing to FIFAs electoral committee, saying they should have known about the multiple nominations, and given him a chance to rectify it, before striking him out.

Nakhids campaign manager, Josanne Leonard, said yesterday: Weve been advised to await word from legal counsel which should be early next week. As soon were apprised this information will be shared.

Nakhid denies receiving $$ from Bin Hammam
T&T Newsday Reports.


FORMER TRINIDAD and Tobago football team captain and midfielder David Nakhid has denied ever receiving any money from disgraced Qatari football official Mohammed Bin Hammam.

In fact, Nakhid is quoted in a story done by the Daily Mail as saying that he has never even met Bin Hammam.

His denial comes in the wake of the newspaper report, which cited documents in which money was transferred by Bin Hammam to someone bearing the name David Nakhid.

Nakhid threw his hat in the ring recently seeking the presidency of FIFA in its forthcoming elections. But the 51-year-old former TT footballer was forced out of the FIFA race last week due to a nomination error.

According to the Daily Mail, paperwork summarises money distributed from bank accounts controlled by Bin Hammam and includes payments to someone with the name David Nakhid.

The transfers in question include a sum of $11,390 (7,400) in April 2009 and a payment of $11,000 (7,100) in June 2009.

But the newspaper reports further, that Nakhid, when showed the details purporting to show money transferred to someone with a name similar to his, said, I have no idea what that is Im ready to show my accounts to anyone. Ive never even met Mohammed bin Hammam, ever, in my life. I cant imagine what that (reference) is in 2009, or at any other time. Ive never met the guy. Never.

He played at club level in Switzerland, the USA and Sweden among other places, played for his country, and launched his presidential candidacy on a platform of reform, transparency and redistribution.

Nakhids nomination for the FIFA presidency was supported by five Caribbean football associations.

However, last week, FIFA announced his candidacy had been deemed ineligible because one of the nominating FAS the US Virgin Islands had nominated more than one candidate, which is against the rules.

Therefore the USVIs nomination for him was effectively struck off, meaning he did not have the five required nominations to continue.

FIFA presidential hopeful David Nakhid has appealed against his exclusion from the election at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. CAS says it expects a verdict next week. Nakhid, a former Trinidad and Tobago international, was among seven election applicants in October. FIFA's election committee blocked him because one of the five FIFA member federations nominating him broke rules by also proposing another contender.

FIFA vs David Nakhid: the shocking truth of their CAS battle and why it matters
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868)


If you are a football fan or stakeholder, then this may be the most important case that you have barely heard of.

On 14 December 2015, the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) ruled against Lebanon-based football coach and ex-Trinidad and Tobago international player David Nakhid in his bid to be re-instated into the FIFA presidential race, which culminates in the 26 February 2016 elections in Zurich, Switzerland.

You might have heard that much. But what you are unlikely to grasp is exactly what was at stake and the machinations at play that could potentially raise searching questions of not only FIFA but CAS as well.

If CAS had ruled in favour of Nakhidwhose candidacy was seen as barely plausible to begin withthe judicial body would not have simply increased the number of FIFA electoral candidates from six to seven. Rather, a Nakhid win could have potentially prompted an inquest into the FIFA Ad-hoc Electoral Committees operations and the disqualification of several nominations for current presidential candidates.

And who knows what that would mean for the scheduled elections and FIFAs already damaged reputation?

The CAS decision itself gave little hint about what the case was really about.

FIFA ruled, on 28 October 2015, that Nakhids candidacy as invalid on the grounds that one of his nominators, the United States Virgin Islands, had also issued a declaration of support a for rival candidate, Jerome Champagne. As such, the USVIs two nominations were disregarded in keeping with Article 13.1 (c) of the electoral rules.

Unlike Champagne, Nakhid was, as a result, left short of the required five nominations.

CAS supported FIFAs initial decision: In line with the FIFA AEC, the CAS panel found one member association had issued declarations of support to two candidates, including one for Mr Nakhid, in violation of the applicable FIFA rules.

As a consequence, those letters of support were disregarded, meaning David Nakhid had not met the qualifying criterion of obtaining declarations of support from at least five member associations.

However, Nakhids case did not hinge directly on whether his five letters of support were valid. Instead, he argued, through Lebanon attorney Jalal El Mir, that the USVIs letter of support for Champagnes candidacy was invalid and should not have been considered in the first place.

Crucially, for Nakhids case at least, FIFAs electoral regulations article 13.2 states: Members must notify the FIFA general secretariat, in writing, of a candidature for the office of FIFA President within the deadline stipulated in the FIFA Statutes.

Further, Article 24.1 of the FIFA statutes states: Only the Members may propose candidatures for the office of FIFA President () Members must notify the FIFA general secretariat, in writing, of a candidature for the FIFA presidency

And, simply put, the USVI did not notify the FIFA general secretariat of any decision to support Champagne. Instead, the Caribbean association sent a letter of support to Champagne, who subsequently relayed it to FIFA on his own behalf.

And Champagne, by FIFAs own testimony, was not the only one who seemingly flouted FIFAs regulations on eligibility for the post of president.

If CAS had ruled for Nakhid, it could have forced FIFA to reveal grounds for invalidated nominations for other candidates too, which might have turned the election campaignalready overshadowed by lengthy suspensions to current president Sepp Blatter and would-be president Michel Platiniinto chaos.

The problem, though, is not that CAS refused to be swayed by Nakhids legal argument but whether he got a fair chance in the first place.

And CAS, unusually, is yet to offer grounds for its judgment or even provide a deadline by which to explain its decision. In its own December 14 media release, the judicial body stated that: the full award with the grounds will be notified to the parties in a few days.

That was 14 days ago and, in its own code, CAS makes it clear that it ignores holidays and weekends in its deadlines.

CAS has not responded to requests for information on the delay.

Thanks to leaked documents, Wired868 has been able to piece together the legal arguments for FIFA and Nakhid to provide the truth of a shocking case that threatened the football bodys eagerly anticipated February elections.

Nakhids case essentially has two parts. First, the former Grasshoppers and New England Revolution midfielder and Caribbean Player of the Year argued that the Ad-hoc Electoral Committee violated the principle of transparency by inviting him to submit a letter of support from USVI, three days after it already received a letter from Champagne for the same member association.

El Mir argued, on behalf of the Trinidadian, that: such (an) act is not only a violation of the integrity and transparency obligation of the Ad-hoc Committee, but a clear manipulation of the election process, by intriguing Mr. Nakhid into a disqualification situation, for an act that he is absolutely not personally responsible of (sic).

In its written response to CAS, FIFA sought to dismiss the suggestion that it had entrapped Nakhid and played an active role in his subsequent disqualification.

The FIFA Ad-hoc Electoral Committee merely informed the appellant that it had not received letters of support for him from St Lucia Football Association and USVI Soccer Association, Inc, stated FIFA. It did not, however, request the Appellant to submit letters or have them submitted, let alone indicate that letters should be submitted to the FIFA general secretariat directly.

The governing body further insisted that it had no obligation to warn Nakhid of a potential invalidation under its electoral regulations and pointed to the final sentence of Article 13.1 (c), which states: If a member association presents declarations of support for more than one person, all its declarations shall become invalid.

Through this clear provision, legal certainty, predictability of decisions as well as equal treatment of all candidates is ensured, stated FIFA. A duty of the FIFA Ad-hoc Electoral Committee to advise any of the two candidates in context with letters of support () is not contained the FIFA Statutes and/or any FIFA regulations.

However, in the second and crucial part of the appeal, it was Team Nakhid that insisted the letter of the law should be followed.

El Mir noted that FIFA confirmed that its only USVI letter of support for Champagne came from the candidate and not the member association.

Therefore, it appears clearly that the letter of USVI Football Association in support for Mr Jerome Champagne, was not submitted within the conditions of the provisions of Articles 13.1 of Electoral Regulations and 24.1 of FIFA Statutes and therefore cannot be considered a valid letter of support by a FIFA Member, stated El Mir. Consequently, the USVI Letter in support of Mr Jerome Champagne being invalid due to its infringement of its submission condition set in Electoral Regulations and FIFA Statutes, the USVI Letter in support of Mr Nakhid submitted by the USVI Football Association directly to the Ad-hoc Committee shall be the only valid support letter issued by USVI.

And thereby the candidacy of Mr Nakhid shall be considered acceptable and requiring (sic) all conditions stipulated in the Electoral Regulations including the five support letters from FIFA Members.

Again, for ease of reference, El Mir hinged his appeal on the FIFA Statutes which state that: Only the Members may propose candidatures for the office of FIFA President () Members must notify the FIFA general secretariat, in writing, of a candidature for the FIFA presidency

FIFAs response to this challenge came in three parts.

First, the governing body, which was represented by director of legal affairs Marco Villiger and head of corporate legal Oliver Jaberg, offered its own grammatical interpretation of the word must in the aforementioned context.

Curiously, FIFA also suggested that although its own statutes stipulated the way it must be done, it did not expressly say it could not be done in another manner.

The term must used in both article 24 paragraph 1 of the FIFA statutes and article 13 paragraph 2 of the electoral regulations for the FIFA presidency indicates that candidatures can only be notified to the FIFA general secretariat by members and not by any other entities or persons, stated FIFA. This follows from the grammatical interpretation of the mentioned provisions, in particular the term must following immediately after members.

If there was an obligation for members to notify the FIFA general secretariat directly (i.e. if it was FIFAs intent to exclude letters of support or notifications of candidatures from members to be submitted by other parties), such prerequisite would have had to be expressly included in the FIFA statutes or regulations. This, however, is not the case.

FIFA followed up on its interpretation of the grammar in its own statutes by explaining that it has, arguably, violated its own constitution in other instances in the current election and in previous ones as well.

Therefore, CAS, according to FIFA, should allow the governing football body to continue doing so, since it was now a well-established habit.

The practice of FIFA Ad-hoc Electoral Committees to allow letters of support from member associations to be submitted by candidates themselves is furthermore well-established, stated FIFA. According (sic) submissions have been admitted in the past and also in the present electoral process.

The third and final line of defence from Villiger and Jaberg was a counter-punch. FIFA claimed that Nakhid had also violated Article 13.2 by allegedly submitting the letter of support for St Lucia himself.

Should the appellants argument that notifications have to be submitted by members directly to the FIFA general secretariat be considered valid and therefore apply, stated FIFA, quod non, the letter of support for the appellant from St Lucia Football Association, dated 12 October 2015, would also have to be considered invalid, as FIFA did not receive this letter directly from St Lucia Football Association.

On the contrary, this letter was provided to the FIFA Ad-Hoc Electoral Committee by Ms Josanne Leonard on the appellants behalf.

The Appellants arguing (sic) would therefore make this letter invalid, leaving him, again, with only four letters of support. Therefore, he could still not be admitted as a candidate for the election for the office of FIFA President on 26 February 2016.

Even more importantly, though, was the timeline.

FIFAs counter-accusation was dispatched to CAS on December 3 and relayed to Nakhids attorney. Hours later, on December 4, El Mir informed CAS that FIFA had tried to mislead the judicial body with flagrantly erroneous information, which they intended to expose through written evidence at their subsequent hearing on December 11.

According to Team Nakhid, the St Lucia Association had sent its letter of support for his candidacy directly to the the Ad-hoc Electoral Committee.

Based on the respondents reply letter dated the 3rd of December 2015, and the arguments and allegations of defense presented within, stated El Mir, FIFA regulatory texts (are) flagrantly erroneous and such allegations being refutable by undisputable written evidence.

Therefore, and based on parties confirmation of availability on the proposed date of 11th December 2015 for the potential hearing before CAS Panel, we would like to request a hearing to be held at the date proposed by CAS.

But Nakhid and El Mir were, allegedly, not allowed to submit email documents at the CAS hearing, which sought to prove that St Lucia sent its letter of support directly to the Ad-hoc Electoral Committee.

FIFA objected when El Mir attempted to introduce undisputable (sic) written evidence on St Lucias nominations and CAS supposedly refused to hear the counterpoint to the football bodys alleged false testimony.

CAS website offered further information on the procedure for its cases.

The proceedings before the (CAS) Panel comprise written submissions and, if the Panel deems it appropriate, an oral hearing, states CAS. Upon receipt of the file and if necessary, the President of the Panel shall issue directions in connection with the written submissions. As a general rule, there shall be one statement of claim, one response and, if the circumstances so require, one reply and one second response.

The parties may, in the statement of claim and in the response, raise claims not contained in the request for arbitration and in the answer to the request.

Thereafter, no party may raise any new claim without the consent of the other party.

CAS, apparently, issued no directions to El Mir, after he raised his dissatisfaction with FIFAs testimony via email. And, once the hearing began, it was too late for Nakhids attorney to present new written evidence without support from either FIFA or CAS.

The CAS code does offer suggestions as to how Team Nakhid might have proceeded.

A party may request the Panel to order the other party to produce documents in its custody or under its control, states CAS code R44.3. The party seeking such production shall demonstrate that such documents are likely to exist and to be relevant.

If it deems it appropriate to supplement the presentations of the parties, the Panel may at any time order the production of additional documents or the examination of witnesses, appoint and hear experts, and proceed with any other procedural step.

Wired868 is uncertain whether El Mir asked CAS to compel FIFA to produce emails, which could potentially prove that St Lucia did send Nakhids letter of support directly to the Ad-hoc Electoral Committee.

Wired868 is also unaware of whether the CAS Panel attempted to use its own initiative to order supplemental evidence related to the St Lucia email to be produced.

Here too, the timeline might be relevant.

Nakhid filed his statement of appeal to CAS on Friday November 13. FIFA responded  20 days later on the stipulated deadline of December 3.

If El Mir chose to offer a written response to FIFA, he had just seven days to do so before the scheduled hearing date of December 11.

Article R32 of the CAS code explained how Nakhids attorney could have requested a time extension.

With the exception of the time limit for the statement of appeal, any request for a first extension of time of a maximum of five days can be decided by the CAS Secretary General, stated CAS, without consultation with the other party or parties.

Notably, any such CAS extension would have meant a similar offer to FIFA, which could have significantly delayed the hearing.

If a counterclaim and/or jurisdictional objection is filed, states the CAS code 44.1, the CAS Court Office shall fix a time limit for the claimant to file an answer to the counterclaim and/or jurisdictional objection.

It is uncertain whether extensions were allowed in expedited matters like Nakhids. But nothing seemed to expressly suggest that option was unavailable.

CAS code 44.4 stated only that: With the consent of the parties, the Division President or the Panel may proceed in an expedited manner and may issue appropriate directions therefor.

El Mir had successfully petitioned CAS for an extension earlier in the case, although it had just been for roughly three days.

CAS initially gave Nakhid until 2 December 2015 to state whether he wanted an oral hearing or was happy for the judicial body to rule solely based on written submissions. However, FIFA had until December 3 to respond to the formers appeal.

El Mir objected to the deadline for a hearing offered by CAS.

CAS has requested from the parties, to express their intention, at the latest on the 2nd of December 2015, whether they will request an appointment of a hearing in the present matter, and such hearing to be held on the 11 of December 2015, stated El Mir. Whereas the decision by the appellant to request an appointment of a hearing, is dependent, in the course of fair justice, of the respondents reply, which deadline shall expire on the 3rd of December 2015 as per CAS letter dated 23 November 2015.

Therefore we would like to request the extension of the deadline () for at least 48 hours after our notification of respondent reply, or after the expiry of such reply deadline in case of respondents failure to reply, allowing the appellant to assess the necessity of requesting such hearing based on arguments and evidence brought in respondents letter, taking into consideration the expedite procedure in the present matter.

Both parties asked CAS  to compel the loser to foot the bill for arbitration while FIFA also requested compensation for its own legal costs. Nakhid threw in the cost of his election campaign and moral damages as well.

Thus far, Nakhid has declined comment on the CAS case.

Although FIFA now looks set to enjoy the last laugh, some important questions remain unanswered.

On what grounds did CAS dismiss FIFAs apparent violation of Article 24.1 of its Statutes and Article 13.2 of its electoral regulations?

Did Nakhids failure to rebut FIFAs allegation regarding the St Lucia letter of support play a key role in CAS decision? And, if so, did the fault lie with El Mir and a technicality?

Or had CAS failed to ensure justice and due process by not offering Nakhid time for a written response to FIFAs allegations or allowing documentary evidence to supplement his presentation at the hearing?

It may be a while before we hear from CAS on the matter.

The Panel () announced the notification of the operative part of the award for 14 December 2015, stated CAS. The full award with grounds should be issued in due course. No specific date can be provided in this respect to the parties.

Nakhid has lost his case. But FIFA and CAS are not yet out of the woods.

At present, the United States Department of Justice continues to zero in on FIFAs sordid past. The football bodys ethics committee has made a mark on FIFAs present, as it called Blatter and Platini to account.

In some ways, Nakhid versus FIFA tells a story about the beleaguered organisations immediate future. And maybe CAS too.

Nakhid can appeal to the Swiss Federal Tribunal, according a Trinidad and Tobago sports lawyer, if he can satisfy that body that there was material injustice in the way that the matter was handled.

However, there are very limited circumstances under which Nakhid could successfully plead for his case to be heard there.

Yet, CAS has been outed before for being overly sympathetic to sporting bodies.

On 5 January 2014, the Higher Regional Court of Munich overturned a ban on German ice skater Claudia Pechstein, who had been penalised for failing a doping test by the International Skating Union (ISU).

CAS had upheld the ISUs ban while the Swiss Federal Tribunal twice rejected Pechsteins appeals.

The Munich court stated that CAS judgment did not satisfy article 6 of the European Court of Human Rights and ruled that: the CAS Award amounted to a violation of German anti-trust/competition law, which prohibits the abuse of a dominant position (or monopoly) in a particular market; and whilst there was no identification of actual bias on the part of the Arbitral Panel appointed to hear CPs appeal before the CAS, the composition and structure of the International Council of Arbitration for Sport (ICAS)the body which is responsible for establishing the approved list of CAS arbitratorswas weighted heavily in favour of sports federations, which in turn fundamentally undermined the neutrality of the CAS itself.

Put simply, sports associations such as the ISU and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) had a disproportionately strong influence on the selection of persons appointed as CAS arbitrators, stated a translation of the Munich courts ruling. In turn, this structural imbalance gave risk that the arbitrators appointed to determine individual disputes at the CAS would (or may) have a tendency to favour the governing bodies, rather than acting in a wholly neutral, objective and independent manner.

There was no rational justification for the structural imbalance identified by the Court.

Should Nakhid refuse to bend, much more than his presidential candidacy is at stake. FIFA and CAS could be in the docks too.

I think it will build his resume if he has aspirations of serving on a top executive position in FIFA, especially if he can come in and change the image. It will also depend on if he doesn't mind living in the region.

Why not. He has every right too. But does Concacaf want another Trini as prez. The zone reeling with corruption charges. Big indictment for the Trini man. You think the want to hear another Trini accent?

Nakhids Academy wins Madrid Cup with three TTFA Elite Players
TTFA Media.


The David Nakhid International Academy (DNA), comprising of three players from the TTFA Elite Under 15 selection, defeated Atletico Madrid 3-2 on its way to capturing the Madrid Cup in Spain on the weekend.

Nakhid had initial talks with local coach Jamal Shabazz about the current Under 15 elite pool and after viewing videos of the team in action, he invited trio Josiah Wilson, Molik Khan and Nathaniel James to join his Academy under 16 team for the prestigious international cup.

DNA, founded by the former Trinidad and Tobago captain, registered Under 10,Under 12 and Under 16 teams in the four-day tournament. The Under 16s went onto defeat FC Valdemoro in the final 1-0. Valdemoro is a feeder team for Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. The winner was scored by Trinidadian Curtis De Leon. De Leon was spotted by T&T U-17 head coach Stern John at the recent TTFA combine in Atlanta and invited to train with the National Under 17 team ahead of the CONCACF qualifiers next month. Curtis brother Shane was also part of the Academy team at the tournament.

The winning goal for Nakhids U16s came when Wilson combined with Hussein Ezzedine to free De Leon on the edge of the penalty area and he weaved past two players before slotting home. The U-16s earlier defeated Estudiantes de Alcorcon 3-1 in the semi final with James scoring a double in that encounter.

Nakhids U-12s won their championship match with a 3-1 victory over Rivellinos Academy of Brazil. The U-10s meantime won the consolation final 4-2 over FC Alcoria.

On the addition of the three T&T U-15 players, Nakhid said his discussions with Shabazz led to the move and he credited TTFA President David John Williams for putting travel arrangements in place for the players.

I thought about it after having talks with Jamaal. I saw a video of them playing against an Under 20 team in Trinidad. Those three boys stood out Josiah Wilson, Nathaniel James and Molik Khan, Nakhid told TTFA Media on Sunday.

They fitted in, they integrated into the team and our players were happy to have them. The Lebanese and Trinidadian mentality is not very far from each other and we have to try and get them to understand the culture of football which is something is common everywhere and that is a professional culture, The boys came in, the were very humble they did well and they are going to be part of our academy going forward. They were well liked. We had some scouts who saw us and will continue to look at our players in the future, Nakhid continued. The Academy which is based in Lebanon, comprises of players from Lebanon as well as players born in Africa, Asia and Europe with Lebanese roots.

This is a major result to beat Atletico Madridto beat a European team to win the Madrid Cup. It was a very nice experience for the boys with four days of top class competition. This is where the intensity is at in terms of what is required for international football for all the programmes and it would certainly be a boost for Trinidad and Tobago football to have more teams and players exposed to competitions like these, Nakhid added

It is not an overnight success. This is about eight years of work in the making and it is still a work in progress, the ex-FC Grasshoppers midfielder concluded. During the trip, players also got the opportunity to train at Real Madrid facilities with coaches from that club as well a tour of the City. Nakhids academy teams have participated in other international tournaments such as the Milan Football Festival, Copa Santa and the Mediterranean International Cup in Barcelona, Spain and the Wales Super Cup.

Hall of Fame soccer player sues AU for race-based discrimination sues American University for race-based discrimination
Kimberly Cataudella (The Eagle)

A former American University soccer player accused the University of racial discrimination, according to a lawsuit filed in a D.C. federal court on Wednesday.

David Nakhid applied for the mens soccer head coach position following the dismissal of Todd West in December 2018. Zach Samol, the teams current head coach, took over the position in early 2019.

On April 26, Nakhid filed a charge of discrimination with the Equal Opportunity Employment Commission, according to Bloomberg Law, who first reported the lawsuit.

Nakhid, originally from Trinidad and Tobago, identifies as black. The soccer player believed he was most qualified for the position because of his past experience. The lawsuit states that he is widely recognized as one of the most prominent players to have played soccer with the University.

Nakhid played soccer at AU from 1983 to 1986. He was inducted into the Stafford H. Cassell Hall of Fame in 2005, as he went on to play soccer professionally in Switzerland, Belgium and Greece after graduating, according to his website. Upon retiring from professional soccer, he went on to own and be the head coach for the David Nakhid International Football Academy.

The lawsuit alleges that Nakhid reached out to the Universitys assistant athletic director, Andrew Smith, to ask about the open position, and he was directed to the online application. After filling it out, the lawsuit says, University officials declined to interview him.

The lawsuit also states that Samol, who is white, was offered the position only after Mike Brady, who is also white, declined it. Brady is currently the associate head coach of the mens soccer team at Duke University, and he served as the head coach of the womens soccer team at AU for eight seasons, beginning in 2010.

AU Athletics declined to a request for comment, stating the department does not offer any statements on pending litigation.

Nakhids attorney could not be reached. A representative from their office said they would let the attorney decide whether to respond to the Eagles request for comment.

AU spokesperson Kelly Alexander told The Eagle that the University cannot comment on pending litigation.

American University is committed to ensuring inclusive excellence in all parts of our community, Alexander wrote in an email to The Eagle. Our commitment includes hiring practices that enhance recruiting and onboarding processes and deliver an employee experience that attracts and retains high-performing and diverse faculty and staff at all levels. AU views each hire and the hiring process as critical to the success of our students and our University.

T&Ts contract mafia is destroying the future of the working class; we must stand up
David Nakhid, Wired868


The year was 1986, and my American University Soccer team was having an average season compared to our previous season having reached the National Championship game against perennial powerhouse, UCLA. Seven of our starting team had graduated, including three fellow Trinbagonians who were players of outstanding quality.

I was now co-captain with an excellent English player, Keith Trehy, who was truly the first poor white boy that I had encountered in my lifetime. Our players mostly freshmen and American, except for one Chris Morgana Jamaica national youth team player and one of the best dribblers I have ever seen in my career; and Ive seen and played with the best.

Midway through our average season and we were down in Florida scheduled to play against University of South Florida (USF), another college powerhouse and ranked in the top 25 nationally. We were not optimistic.

After breakfast an urgent knock on my hotel door: Nak, Nak.yuh dey?

Fearing the worst, I hustled to the door. After all, college freshmen virtually unmonitored in a hotel room down in the Sunshine Sate; well, the possibilities were endless. It was Morgan.

Nak bwoy, me and de boys just seen a USF game program and dem have three white South African players pon dem side; and two of dem was in de South African army.

His words lingered in the air to the point that I felt I could literally pluck each word with my bare hands. By this time, the whole team minus my co-captain was crammed into my room waiting for my reaction. They had seen me many times on my way to the anti-apartheid rallies mostly held outside the South African Embassy on Massachusetts Avenue, just down from our place of learning.

I had spoken to them of Nelson Mandela. Not the shuffling, smiling, dancing, eager to please the white voices Mandela, that all you house negroes like to portray the man as; but the militant Mandela, the one who spoke about economic and social reform for the monstrously oppressed black South Africans; the Mandela who knew that a vote without structural and political context was nothing but that: just a vote.

I spoke about Steve Biko, Patrice Lumumba and Malcolm the X man. People they had never heard of but were eager to hear their stories. My reaction could only be one: fellas get some white cardboard strips and some markers.

For the next three hours, almost up until game time, this group of mostly white Americans made some of the finest protest placards that one could imagine. Down with apartheid, free Mandela and Justice for Biko were just samples of the placards hurriedly made.

We thought we would hold them aloft as the teams lined up, the crowd would cheer and praise us, wed be satisfied with our noble behaviour and we would have done our small part to abolish the oppressive scourge that is apartheid. Well none of that imagined scenario played to script.

First of all, we were joined by my co-captain, the poor English white boy who was very aware of the significant part that the UK government played in not only propping up the apartheid government but eliminating the voices of dissent from the African diaspora.

Im with you guys, he proclaimed and picked up a placard on his way out the door. Great, I thought, we are all in now.

As we lined up for the game, it was easy to spot the white South Africans on USF. They were physically imposing with white faces that were abnormally red from the hot Florida sun. I had a couple of the bench players bring out the placards so theyd go unnoticed by our coach Peter Mehlert, a Chinese-American man who was competent enough as a coach but wished he was British and had a despicable personality, especially towards the black players.

I remember it like it was yesterday. As the players distributed the placards to our starting team already at centre circle, my eyes were on our coach as he began walking towards us.

He quickly saw the signs and made a beeline towards me. Seething with anger, he said this can affect all those on scholarship. But he was looking only at my co-captain, Trehy, and myself. The message was clear. We were due for graduation next semester.

And it was then I realised, literally in the blink of an eye, that I was not of the mettle of Malcolm, Lumumba or Mandela. Everything became surreal. I saw the disappointment in my parents faces as I came back to Trinbago expelled. The glee on my enemies faces as my four years of hard work and footballing achievements expunged.

The feeling became worse as my co-captain dropped his placard where he stood and moved to the end of the line. All the players were looking at me from both sides, my dubious pretence at nobility in plain sight. I felt like I was floating, I kid you not, almost looking at myself to see my reaction.

To this day, I cannot tell you what I would have done if I didnt hear a voice from the stands, as he moved from the viewing area closer to the field, shouting: yes Nakhid, yes Nakhid! I made him out immediately, it was Paul Pea, an ex-St Marys College boy I had not seen in years; and an older friend of mine.

He continued: yes Nakhid, yes Nakhid, down with apartheid!

My players took the cue and all except my co-captain held up their placards, the white South African oppressors began cursing at us, officials were scrambling everywhere; and our point was made. Our average team went on to play our best game of the season, beating a nationally ranked USF 6-3. I had a goal and three assists and as Morgan, who was dribbling the USF players to the point of embarrassment, would tell me later: Nak, you looked liked if you were floating over the field.

I dont remember much of the game details to be honest but I remember that our coach never said a single word about that game or the preceding events. Nothing. Crickets!

Why my trip down memory lane? Firstly, I think at this point in my life I should, while Im able to share some of experiences Ive encountered during a truly blessed life full of failures and, yes, intermittent successes.

Secondly and more importantly, as our Trinidad and Tobago hurtles in overdrive to social and economic destruction, maybe some of our citizens might take heart from knowing that no-one is as brave or as noble as he seems or even proclaims. But nothing is insurmountable including our deepest fears.

The collective oppression inflicted on uswhether we claim to be so called Indo-Trinbagonians or so called Afro-Trinbagoniansby both major political parties, the PNM primarily and the UNC or PP version is now down to us as citizens to overthrow, and that revolution cannot be an armchair one. It must be feet on the ground, protesting, educating, engaging and exercising our right to civil disobedience at all levels.

If we as a people could read and learn about the corruption of both parties in facilitating the payments of rents to politically influential familiesincluding the wife of our present AG, Mona Nahous Al-Rawito the tune of 440 million dollars a year and not have widespread protests to demand this governments resignation and the complete sidelining of T&Ts corrupted political class, then I dont know what else will move us.

Maybe the self-realisation that we are not who we imagine ourselves to be just might. Maybe it is when we let it sink in that money paid for empty buildings is frittered away at the expense of our disastrous healthcare system, failing education system, our manufacturing and agricultural industries, and our sporting facilities.

Do we honestly expect that a few burglaries targeting the affluent contract mafia in our country will change the way our politicianscorrupted and complicit with this contract mafiaconduct their modus operandi?

Just look at on the ongoing revolution in Lebanon for guidance. No chance in hell my brothers and sisters.
I will leave you with this and I know some of you with your pretences to democracy may disagree. When a country that has been corrupted to its core, along mostif not all!of its institutional structures, then the practice of voting is no longer relevant as a tool for change.

Both parties laugh at us, as they make provision for the security of their childrens childrens children, as the son of one of our late corrupted PNM ministers (who attended American University with me) coolly told us.

The corrupted privileged class, politicians included, understand only three things: loss of wealth, loss of power or loss of life. If they had any sense of empathy, they would not have brought us to this sorry pass.

Now, we can choose to act like Morgan; or we can drop the placard and move to the end of the line. Its really up to us!

The article posted above resonates with me for several reasons and on various levels.

The city: I spent an overlapping period of time in that city engaged in socio-cultural-economic and political activities at embassies or at which embassies were "patrons". At one point, I prepared briefs for someone whose office shall remain nameless.

I first visited the city as an 11 year old and had not the slightest idea that I would return on a permanent  basis 7 years later.

I too found myself standing in front of the Embassy of South Africa. I had a clear personal conviction that the circumstance of apartheid was the sole ground, barring economic misfortune, on which I was prepared to interrupt my studies. I remember the moments in front of the embassy almost as clearly as I recall watching Nelson Mandela walk liberated from almost 30 years as a prisoner of conscience some years later.

It is those activities, among others, that cemented in my mind in 2007/8 that Barack Obama could and would become President.

To be continued  ... on a plane about to takeoff.  When I land I'll bring it to the football thread part of the resonance.

PART II

One of the best ideas I had in the earlies was that of arranging my course schedule on a three day week. This meant I had two midweek days to go out and engage the city, do things out of the ordinary  routine, and think and relax. On one of the days-off I would ride from near where Reagan was shot to a place along the river in Northern Virginia called Monticello. It was a good physical challenge with pleasing  scenery, no stress and high rewards. I would return with a buzzing mind and ready to conquer.

Somewhere along the line I thought about transferring to an institution that offered the area of concentration in which I was most interested. The candidates were two: Georgetown and AU. On the day I rode to Georgetown to check it out critically it wasn't officially Spring yet, but it was warm and sunny and it seemed like the entire campus was sunbathing on any available patch of grass. I froze in my tracks at the gate and decided that I wasn't feeling the place culturally or demographically and I made an about turn.

On another day off,  when I went to AU,  I found a warm and very professional lady from Jamaica (with a hint of Chinese ancestry if I recall correctly) who was tasked with International Admissions. She gave me a list of things to do and a schedule on which to have them done, and as I got them done over the weeks,  the initial tinge of doubt that I had detected in her, disappeared.

It was after this that I met Pete Mehlert. We spoke for at least 30 minutes in his office. While I was listening to him attentively I was trying to figure out the puzzle that he presented me in stereotype, name, occupation, personality and energy level.  I wasn't successful at deciphering anything as to how a guy, who my best offering at supposition surmised might have been adopted from Korea, ended up coaching collegiate soccer - particularly in that time period.

Satisfied that all my documents had been submitted, and that pending end of semester grades, the transfer process was afoot and near completion, Mehlert picked up the phone and called someone who it was clear he wanted to engage in the process. Then he arranged for me to walk across campus and in less than five to ten minutes I was in David Nakhid's dorm room ... being greeted by a Trini who had a Big Man on Campus tag.

In Spanish, teammates and commentators use the term "figura" to refer to players with personality on and off the field. Leaders and decision-makers. And I use the term "iron sharpens iron" because it really captures how we should deal with our bredrin, the ones we know and the ones we don't know. However,  one man's "figura" and iron sharpener is often a fearful man's troublemaker. Something like the mantra that a coach shared with me as one of his operating axioms: having 3 Argentines on your squad spells trouble and 4 will mark your loss of the dressing room. The sheer personality of 1 Argentine should be duplicated cautiously but not multiplied beyond that according to him.

Anyway...

I walked into the room greeting the occupants and extended my hand.  As I did so, I recall pondering what weight of handshake should fit the moment. I decided to not be too non-Trini so I settled on the light-hearted grip that passes outside of business circles, up and down the island chain as a decent hail. BUT in an instant I regretted that choice, particularly because  I knew better.   

David Nakhid started "iron sharpening" immediately and left me with a lesson that I have since replicated to countless African and Caribbean youth and men over the decades, without ever invoking DN's name.

David read me the Riot Act on the protocol of a proper, firm handshake and why and my few fleeting seconds of wading in at the wishy washy end of life were banished, never to return. Frankly, I wanted a re-do: to repeat my entrance absent the faux pas.

Nakhid was a figure and the manner, tone and sincerity with which he dealt with the matter rivalled the quality of a reasoning session with a serious Rastafarian elder steeped in the firmness of livity. I walked out of the room chastised, but ever faithful and ever sure and since then I've taken my iron sharpening seriously and frontally.

Some years later in a NYC lobby,  the smile of an attractive woman caught my attention. Turns out she was Lebanese.  From Lebanon. Some weeks later she invited me to meet some of her compatriots who were also in the city temporarily.  Two things stayed with me: one was that one of the compatriots  was the Beirut-based cousin of someone I was schooled with in T+T and the other was the near mysticism of the cult of David Nakhid in the imagination of those young Lebanese.

Well, as a connoisseur of good writing, both of storytelling and of the promotion of human dignity, this thoughtful piece was indeed a delight.

Yes, some people have so groomed themselves that one cannot be in their presence and leave unscathed.

Thanks for sharing, Seeker.

My favorite line . . .Nakhid was a figure and the manner, tone and sincerity with which he dealt with the matter rivaled the quality of a reasoning session with a serious Rastafarian elder steeped in the firmness of levity.

My favorite line . . .Nakhid was a figure and the manner, tone and sincerity with which he dealt with the matter rivaled the quality of a reasoning session with a serious Rastafarian elder steeped in the firmness of levity.

The handshake schooling took place about 6 months before the protest action Nakhid describes.  Two years later I would be confronted with a slightly more complex  situation than the one Nakhid faced,  but which required similar psychological resources.  Nevertheless they drew on the informal schoolings of 1986 and 1987, but were really fundamented on 1983 through 1985.

He wrote: "Why my trip down memory lane? Firstly, I think at this point in my life I should, while Im able to share some of experiences Ive encountered during a truly blessed life full of failures and, yes, intermittent successes." Totally agree.  Indeed, 1987 is totally related to the decision to make that about face at Georgetown's gates and the decision that I made after the transfer to AU went through. Barring that decision I would have been making placards in Florida on the day Nakhid describes.

Side note: Around 2014/5 the attractive lady was on a plane and she told me she had a good chat during the flight with a Trini baller.  I still have no idea who the player/former player was, despite calling about 10 names. There are only a handful to two handfuls of players that should have been on that flight path. Lebanon outbound.

Now, we can choose to act like Morgan; or we can drop the placard and move to the end of the line. Its really up to us!

Waaaaay too many choose to drop their placard and move to the end of the line; most, never bothering to pick it up in the first place. And to think that by now the masses should have been sufficiently schooled in, and frustrated with the insistence of the oppressors to inflict corruption.

As a people we still don't like ourselves enough to demand a more dignified life for ourselves and posterity.

As for Nak, may his tribe increase.

Thanks for sharing

WATCH: With Trinidad and Tobago at a crossroads, former T&T footballer David Nakhid, who has been outspoken on social issues throughout his life, talks about his time as a footballer, both as a player and as a coach and what brings him back to T&T.

Some takeaways:

Most of what he says, aligns with my perspective, however...

He will join a political party, it wont be pnm I assume bc he mentioned their long tenure in power and the country is still behind, I agree but I also dont support unc for many reasons as well

He must realize once you are in that party setting, the whips and pm will keep you in check, partisan doctrine and towing the line, once you step out of that, you become blacklisted and serve your time as an independent

You cannot change the country through a political party, it has to come from private sectors of the society who have a will to change the nation and through revolution

How will he sidestep the colonial mentality where both political parties are subservient to the bigger nations and heel to them?

He is better served running for a football post, only if he becomes sports minister can he influence some change but even then he will be under manners from the heads of the party, namely unc...

Thats the mistake of some people who have a will to help the nation, they believe committing to a political party is the answer, its not...

Unless its a money move that is unaware to all of us... eat ah food type deal

Bachoo did a decent job getting to the point of his presence. Well, Nakhid may have called for the interview to start turning the soil for his motives, which I believe is ultimately Prime Minister. He is an out-and-out leader. He will not settle for less than that.

Contro, I like some of your thoughts: You cannot change the country through a political party, it has to come from private sectors of the society who have a will to change the nation and through revolution

I think there may be other effective ways to lead. . .Grassroots. But he has already identified where he thinks the power lies in one of the political parties.

Well Well.

Some of us heard the start of such rhetoric in 1970, deserted by the ppl who they thought they were trying to help. Abu thought it what the ppl wanted. Again he was wrong. Now again you come talking revolution, dont be fooling yourself my youth.

There are other alternatives, I fe
