He get de memo on India's suspension?
ďThe suspension also impacts international transfers, as well as any courses or developmental programs that AIFF officials could, or were taking in. This in effect means a total ban on all football-related activities outside India. However, the league in the country, as well as domestic transfers, can continue.Ē   ??? ???

Totally impressed by India mixed 4x400 relay performance. Chased the US to the line. Time for us to make a concerted effort to expand our selection pool ( with the help of both foreign and local).

It's really time to rethink these ' Common Wealth Games'  seems now like a glorification of  an old British colonial empire hosting those who were once colonized!!!!
Is this reason to celebrate and host? Should this  even exist under this banner? In the opening  ceremonies- even had to sign ' God Save the Queen"

 I recalled even  in standard 7 back in the days lining up in rows and standing in teh hot sun to sing this at school. I refused- and quickly  teacher playing  colonial master  cracked a whip on my arse for not singing!!!!

Why do I need to glorify the  royal masters who reigned domination over the colonizers? and today with this realization I watch  these games with a new awakening of what it symbolize  )- just my opinion


There is nothing wrong with the games. It is just that our sports sucks and we don't or can't even win bronze medals. At one time it was real important. But now it has be relegate a tier down. The World TF championship is more important, at least for TF athletes. Evn PanAm games has dropped to tiers. But it is important that our athletes participate.
Apps, ABT, soon you would stop writing English and move back Africa. Yet careful dem doh frustrate yuh by being happy to participate in the games. ď God save everybody oui ď . I looking on the bright side, colonization as bad as it was, made me born Trini 😆 God is good, even with the few of us he saved on the trip. Now if we could only help the rest of the Caribbean win everybody.

Sorry, I canít comment nor offer any opinion. Simply because I have no knowledge of England women FA, clubs or even who the current players are, farless who ARE the best players and which other players could have been included. As far as Iím concerned that is England issue. At present, I am more interested in getting our own house in order( both Canada - no complaints there. - and TT, before I would consider following other countries. I personally didnít care who won, I should of at least watched for educational purposes. Sadly, I didnít even do that. I was more interested in World T&F.
PS: no complaints on diversity there. Fastest times, longest jumps and throws are most certainly selected.

That is a curious stance for a number of reasons.

Let's start with one of the most fundamental inquiries: back during the days of England's First Division were you ever exercised by who was ripping up the fields and who wasn't being selected despite so ripping up the fields?
Not sure I understand your question. If you mean was I ever following English football and/or itís potential Ntl players, my answer is No. Note, I was, still am, happy to see an inclusion of players of diverse ethnicity in any country in any sport, as long as they are chosen based on talent and production. To summarize I canít say I follow any Country potential candidates for football selection. I hardly Can follow my own. We can ask,( think Sam wondered awhile back) how come we donít select more indo-Trinis/ other-Trinis on our Ntl team, when nearly 50% of population are such ? I wish we can find a way to tap into that vein, if it could possibly improve our chances of future performances. Sure it would generate even more Bachanal and complaints, just how we like it.  :D :D

I guess that football will be forever changed!

Pack it up if they win in Qatar. :devil:

The injury to Popp was not quite Ronaldo not lining up in 1998, but it reverberated on this outcome. The better team won.
I feel you just a undercover supporter  :D

Ato, same trend happening in our football.

Something you always talked about was consistency. Becoming a nation of one medal wonders.

What's the word with Cedenio? He not even in the 4x400m team.

So whatís Canada trending issues?  ;D

As there are so many TTians with so much knowledge of the game and coaching requirements and their failures. Hereís a little exercise if one is so interested and dedicated.

List 3 available coaches you would like to interview. What salary and incentives are you willing to offer ?. What are your timelines and expectations? What will be their general duties ? How many scouting trips, training camps and friendly games can your organization afford them ?

Walcott ? :praying:

You go to war with a slingshot up against cannons- yuh go get your arse  blown up fuh goals doh matter who coaching-

One of the poorest economies in the Caribbean- Haiti looking dat good- tell meh what de fak is  really doing with football development in TnT?
Getting downright embarrassing

You don't know there are very wealthy Haitians in Haiti, Miami, NY, Montreal, France who support Haitian football, unlike our well to do Trinis. I beg to differ that because they "poor" that they don't have resources for football. Football is in their DNA. Not so in TT.
9 of the 11 starters play in France 1 or 2 division. (France women team currently ranked #1 - in addition to the football culture of the country).
1 of 11 is NCAA. 1 the goalie I think might be in Germany.
As for the Canadians, even higher leagues.
When youíre immersed and surrounded by quality, oneís level naturally improves. Add in a steady and consistent recipe and your product will always be good and sometimes great.
We on the other hand immersed in negative football culture (unless we win), no recipe, suspect admin and cooks, players from vastly inferior leagues - poor soil with very little water, volunteer farmers, community ready to invest and purchase foreign goods. Yet constantly expecting and disappointed in our local product. Itís a wonder we produce anything at all. I applaud the ppl (players and staff) who still keep trying and working with what they have.

disgraceful performance and no answers from eve.

showed no fight, zero ability to anticipate where the ball will be, poor decision making especially under pressure.

silver lining is they can collectively soak in the lessons from a painful cut-arse.

eve and carrington....do better. if allyuh can't grow this team or if the dual post is no benefit to u-20 or smnt then drop a damn post


It's the same ole same ole that have been going on for decades and still no one has learned a darn thing, how can you compete with countries that invest in their sports discipline? just look around you and see which caribbean team that has been dominant over the north and central americans...there aren't any, and do you know why? because we in CFU are lazy self serving monkeys who don't want to put in the work but crave positions of leadership while relying on talent alone for past 60 years.


So save your disappointment mate, and do like me and watch with a coaches eye. the last straw for me was when they fired fenwick for angus, claiming that coaching was the reason for us flunking out of the world cup, when it wasn't coaching but lack of development, and the fact that most of our lads play in very poor leagues around the world.



As one of a thousand examples....30 years of boom kick and toepee up the field, and not a single one a defence splitting pass. That should be automatic jail time. Somebody is coaching the youth to  boomkick or not correcting them when its done. For 30+ years







That is most certainly not true. I had the pleasure of watching many age groups in the RBC tournament a few years back, different age groups, and except for a few cases on a couple teams in the U10 age group there was hardly any of that style played or coached. Where have you been observing this among the local youths in development ? At the higher youth levels their was exceptional player, the 1 major issue was discipline and punctuality from 2 teams in particcular, Patna Village and Laventille youths, however their player although NOT boom kick was reactive and rough. The coaches were still trying to give them proper directions though, given the obvious team issues. QPCC players, Trendsetter Hawks and 1 other team -  i think outta Barataria - coaches and supporters were a cut above the rest.  Funny though, I haven't seen any of the top players from that tournament move on, or maybe I may missed them.

maxg, if that explaination is true then I will settle for that.  But during that time we were hearing all kind of things. There is almost never anything  truthful. It was same thing with DeLeon. 
But what does it matter Deeks ? In the final analysis the best who shows up should be played. And even that rarely happens. What sticking in your craw that you have to settle. Player, Staff and Admin ainít care, we go support less ? Not at all.

This whole Zmora issue left many of us sour. If they had said from the beginning that  he could not play for TT because of the U-21 ruling, we could have settled. But they kept us believing he could play for TT when in truth he could not because of the rulings at the time. Then there is the DeLeon case. Almost the same thing.
Deeks look at the first couple of post of this thread. It was always unlikely.  Not until a big popular player , get the passport, fly down and actually stay or ( or at least in 1 case ) come back after the baby, there is no need to get excited. They might not get paid, they club career could be finished or undecided, reasons where they might not give their all but selected over someone slightly less talented giving of his. Many forget when Dwight was going thru those indecisive Moments, coming back, and everybody on Concacaf was stopping him, beating him to the ball etc.. he was not taking chances with his career . ( I donít hold it against him) however if any coach sat him on the bench for more active player then, would TT have seen a World Cup in 2006 and beyond - if we doh make before we dead, we can replay the video even on our dying bed 😂 .
What is to be will be. If we want to make certain things happen, then we should work and strive for it, one way or others.  Sometimes we would get thru , sometimes we wonít. Yet, we shouldnít sour ourselves when we get a disappointing outcome. We should Lear OUR own mistakes from those and just move on the next successful one. Well done Klay Thompson , even if yuh doh play for the Bahamas.

Bobby was not eligible to play in 2006 since he played under21s fifa changed the rule i think in 2008 then he was eligible to play. He was suppose to come with jlloyd but got injured . then declined for 2014
Thanks . Well done Zamora. Still proud.
From Wiki
ď On 7 August 2009, it was revealed that Zamora and Jlloyd Samuel had received their Trinidadian passports, and would play for the Soca Warriors in their 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifier against El Salvador on 12 August.[65] However, Zamora did not get his first cap due to an injury he picked up while training.[citation needed] His form in the 2009Ė10 season led to calls for Zamora to be called up to the England squad, and there had been rumours that Fabio Capello had been visiting Craven Cottage to look at his performances.[66] However, due to an Achilles injury, he was not included in Fabio Capello's provisional squad of 30 players for the run-up to the 2010 FIFA World Cup, which was announced on 11 May 2010.[67]Ē

Did they qualify for the gold cup?

we have Bahamas away next year and Nicaragua at home
As far as it understand, we have to win our group, to be promoted to league A and qualify for the Gold Cup. Top 2 teams from the groups of League A and winners of League B groups are doing in Gold cup. Last place teams of Groups you in League A and B relegated.

Carlyle Mitchell from TT,to USA and now Phiipines,they must be the weakest team in Asia,I can't help but mention yet again ,why do people take a dig at some of our players who play in India.I think our players can do as well in Thailand as they do in TT,there are much better crowds and our standing in world football is probably the same virtually.
But how yuh could say theyíre the weakest team in Asia and they on top their league ( of which Qatar airways sponsor) ? Ah mean we donít seem to even have a league going, we have. Tournament. What does it matter if we ainít giving any of those Asian players a call anyway, let them work where they get it and possibly enjoy themselves. Less stress, more appreciation. Iím sure, they like everyone else would love to play in any UEFA clubs, but if no calls coming (top club or country), they have to make do and live their life. Wishing all of those guys the best, I admire them.
