quelle surprise, look who's turn up again to gloat.

You really are the biggest Myopic Dick on the board (if not the world) aren't you!   ;D ;D

Well fat lady has sung, she sounds sweet, thought the crowd would of been bigger but suppose a bit like me have become weary, I haven't really been watching away games for a month or so now.  Nobody but nobody can't say we didn't deserve it.  Should of cleared the decks after the Di Canio fiasco with the players, nows his chance. 

Onto next week and then next season.   

I actually tried to be kind to you as a supporter by acknowledging the pain of the fans, but God bless you, you weren't bright enough to pick up on the fact.  Calling me all the names in the book doesn't change the fact that the team you support, and arguably the club itself, is utter rubbish.  That's not a personal attack on you, no need for it, you shame enough yourself as it is, but rather an honest appraisal of where the club is at the moment.  But no matter, I look forward to your updates from the Championship next season  :beermug:

i only agree with the 1st part. 34000+ fans to see them relegated. after the few disappointed jeers, applause for players leaving the field. young children and women crying in their sunderland jerseys. this dude coming in here religiously to post on his team. How many lessons T&T fans have to learn from this team!?
That defense is schoolboy. A good few MLS teams carrying better, which is unacceptable for prem [they should take a look and stock up next season]. Defoe don't deserve to go down. They should buy 'tulla ;)

So... what exactly do you disagree with?

Jermain Defoe- 14 goals.  Rest of the team- 11.  9 managers in 10 seasons since 2006 (including Keane, not counting Ball and Black).  The current manager is facing FA charges for 'joking' about slapping a female journalist for asking uncomfortable questions, while management carries on fiddling.  And about that 'management'... kept on playing Adam Johnson while he was still in court dealing with charges he tried to screw a 15-year old.  Not being satisfied with that, they then paid Margaret Byrne £750,000 in hush money for her mishandling of the related fiasco.

I suppose they're 'good' trash then?  Be honest, the entire set up is rubbish.

steups dey was digging at hazard whole time so it ok to cynically kick dong ah man whole game den?

Easy hero.

Let's deal with specifics, namely the two yellows on Herrera.  For the first yellow, it's debatable that it was even a foul.  Herrera is under no obligation to get out of Hazard's way... he's just prohibited from deliberately obstructing the attacking player.  Hazard kicked the ball past Herrera who seeing the impending collision a) did nothing to get out of the way (that's the optimistic view); b) Braced himself for the collision (the pessimistic view).  He made zero movement into Hazard's path.  Not a foul.

Even if you want to argue it was a foul... it was hardly a yellow card worthy foul... but let's grant Oliver the benefit of the doubt on that one.

On the second yellow... straight up comedy.  The view taken by the commentators was that Oliver had just warned Smalling that the next player to foul Hazard was going into the book.  This is outrageous, if true.  Not only was he putting an effective bubble around a specific player, but doing so with more than half the match still to be played.  That's not even the most outrageous part... the most outrageous part is that he's pre-determined in his own mind that he's going to show a yellow card for the next foul, no matter the severity of the infringement.  That's shocking... again, if true.  Individual players can be booked for persistent fouling, but I don't know of a provision that allows a player to be booked for persistent fouls committed by his team.

If that's NOT the reason why Herrera was booked, that he was shown a second yellow for his own actions and not those of his team collectively, then that's a poor yellow on it's own... and a ridiculous second yellow to show.  Hazard was more than happy to go down, he turned and looked at the ref before he even stopped rolling on the floor.  Even if Oliver deemed it a foul... to give a yellow, let alone a second yellow?  Nah.

And look... with Mourinho and Manchester United it's like Satan coaching The Evil Empire, I have no reason to defend them.  I don't like Chelsea, but not as much as I dislike Manchester United or anything related to Mourinho.

I'm very saddened by this news, Weary and I weren't friends, but we were still 'family' through our love and support of the Warriors, and for this forum.  47-48 years old is way too short of a life, but she did much in her short time to try and ensure that those who were less fortunate could have a little bit of joy.  If there is any small consolation it would seem as though she didn't suffer, and that is a silver lining in this sad situation.  Godspeed and Rest In Peace Joann.

As much as I hate to see Hart go I wouldn't mind the duo of Dennis Lawrence and Fenwick. Fenwick seems to be a no nonsense tactician and Dennis has gained considerable knowledge as a coach at Everton. Plus with Terry being an englishman and Dennis profile as the man who scored that goal to get us to WC 2016 I'm sure we can woo potential players

Where to begin with this mess?

TnT vs Mexico July 2015.....Best Gold Cup game ever!!!  Thanks for that high point since 2006 coach Hart.....Godspeed sir....

Best post-Germany memory with the National team.  The man is pure class... took the time out after the game to chat briefly with me, Scorp and Tenorsaw.  Not really surprised, DJW/AJW, same khaki pants.  Hart was not his coach and he made that well-known from jump.

Apparently jealous of the new leadership of the TTFA, the US went out last week and elect Donald Trump president.  Not to be outdone by the yellow and orange combover, David Jack Warner beats his chest and thrashes about the bush in vain attempt to regain the narrative.

lord where to start...this was a status quo candidate in a change election.  i agree with AS' assertion that undecideds did not decide this election.  i think voter turnout hurt Hillary. she counted on some sections of the electorate support but she miscalculated.  i remember 4, 8 years ago every black barbershop had an Obama poster/sticker;not so this time around.   oh well, let's see who trump puts in his cabinet, that will tell us something about his intentions

Third party voters in Florida, had they voted for Hillary, would have swung the election in her favor.  Latinos in your neck of the woods really f**k we up good and proper too.

Football / Re: TTFA to drop Soca Warriors name
« on: November 07, 2016, 01:52:15 PM »
Fair enough, my argument was based on the premise that ownership was established. My own assumption was that if the FA took a firm brand decision on the basis of just a pre-action protocol letter then there must have been some merit to the claim. (Shrugs)

The FA could probably contest ownership but that is litigation and cost with no cap, and even with that there is no guarantee that FA will get the outcome they want.

With any sort of litigation there is no guarantee that a party will get the outcome they seek, that hasn't stopped the DJW TTFA from courting litigation though... just ask Kendall Walkes, Sheldon Phillips and a number of other unpaid past-employees/vendors.  But even if litigation aversion was the proffered reason why they decided to discontinue use of the name, certainly being confronted with a conservative estimate of "$1.7 million dollars" would be incentive enough to give pause to any rebranding as an option.

I not denying Selwyn the right to his intellectual property right.

Before we get to the rest of your comment, the inquiry should begin with whether he has any intellectual property rights in the first place.  Even if he can prove that it was he who first coined the term, and that's a big if, then the issue becomes one of whether he sought to protect any rights that may have been established by that.  Did he register or trademark the name as his intellectual property?  Of course he didn't a) because even he himself hasn't made that claim; b) because a search of the relevant registries returned no such name as "Soca Warriors" as a protected interest.  Not only that, but the name has been in the public domain, and universally applied as to the TnT national teams, for at least 10 years... going back to 2006 and prior.

So to recap:  He hasn't conclusively proved that he was the first to coin the name, took no steps to protect his purported interest, hasn't sought to address the issue of whether any asserted rights have been diluted by time and popular usage... but here we are debating how much he should be paid.  You don't have to have any kind of legal training to understand that this b.s. claim has no legs.  But God bless the DJW TTFA...

One of the most compelling articles I have read on this forum.

"Ironic" seems more appropriate.

I am now 53 and reside in Brooklyn, New York, USA, with my wife and children, Edson (named after Pele), Jodi, Armani and Blossom.

...particularly given that Edson himself is back in Trinidad as a two-time deportee, after a stint in federal prison, sneaking back into the US and getting caught dealing drugs a second time, more prison and another plane ticket back to Morvant.

A final note, on all the Christian Pulisic what I call over hype.


Either our Men's National defense poor, Pulisic improve tremendously in 18 months or Hart need to call in young Noah Powder.

I would agree with 'over hype'... Thomas Tuchel, Juergen Klinsmann and Juergen Klopp are overhyped know-nothings as well.

i have been living in brooklyn for a few years and have attended the jouvert once and it was a nice time. the trouble is that there are a lot of troublesome afro american kids who come out to jouvert only to make mischief.

Reginald Moise... yeah that sounds like an "afro american" name.

unfortunately this is the same dynamic that takes place in nottinghill carnival where there are tons of iddle british youths both black and white who see the parade as an opportunity to misbehave.

as for deblassio, he's a real wanker, this clown is actually seeking an excuse to cancel jouvert and to some extent the whole labor day experience on the parkway, either that or relocating it away from the eastern PKWY under pressure from his jewish voter base.

the jews on the PKWY desperately wants to dead the parade and tried on many occasions under previous mayors to have it limited, and i wont be surprised if they paid people to do these shootings to lay a stain and an indictment on the whole celebrations.

IMO they could take stricter measures to alleviate these shootings, in the same manner they implemented better security measures for the boston marathon and the ball drop in time SQ.

And I'm sure you can back up that statement with actual proof, right?

In the hours after two people were killed early Monday, the mayor seemed to suggest that he was open to ending J’ouvert. But on Tuesday, he ruled that option out, saying that his statement that “every option will be on the table” had been misinterpreted.

“I think it was very clear yesterday that we were not including the option of ending something which has gone on for decades and decades,” Mr. de Blasio said at a news conference with police officials. “We have to find out a way to make it safer.”
