I’ll keep this brief.

Don’t know whether that article is in direct response to the few comments on this page. I can’t imagine that to be the case because they’re so few and no strictly discouraging remarks.

My “Nooooooooooo” has no intention to discourage. I am a big believer in affirmation and encouragement. I see Judah as a top Trinidad talent. I wish him and his family the very best. I will be cheering for him and all our other sons of the soil plying their trade on this terrestrial ball.

Thanks for the positives, Seeker.

Blessings to all
I don't think your "No" was meant to be a discourager of sorts. I posted the article as it was something by Levi. I was just curious as to why you said "No". Were you hoping for a better league or club ? Were you hoping to continue getting a glimpse of him running out for your club ? what ? You still didn't give your reasons. I'm just curious and interested in what your thoughts are ? is all. Full respect, No negativity involved.

add: as a matter of fact, I'm not sure I quite agree with Levi, I think their are a quite a few ppl who do encourage and work extremely hard for the youths, volunteers, sans remuneration. They may not be at the forefront of the bacchanal aspect of our football. They are hardly known or recognized except by the young ppl they work with, many who don't make a name in football, yet some do remember the life lessons they learn from those individuals along the way.


Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!  ;D

The Olympics are not just about avid athletics fans. Thousands across the globe only tune in once the Games are on ... especially for the 100m finals. So the avid fan versus casual fan distinction is less pronounced every four years. Time difference may also be a factor.

Reading criticism of NBC's coverage in YouTube comments reveals some familiar complaints regarding coverage bias (swimming and gymnastics over track etc).  One particular comment was hilarious: it referred to a pole vault commentator opining "Ooo that was a high vault" as being indicative of inferiority analysis.

We hear similar inanities from former USWNT players during football coverage, especially during the WWC. Often nuance is lost.

I viewed a clip of Ato providing nuance to his colleague regarding why ETH was not conceding lane assignment based on her approach to the prelims versus the approach to come in the semis. That comment separated Ato from the pack.

Another factor may be due to outlets like i95.5 not having a team on the ground. However, I think the vibe reflects what is happening in the events. Having looked at times and distances delivered, I think the public knows we salt.

I'm curious what AB thinks about the bid that sought to add MLA to the 100 final.

I saw that. Ato, as you know, has been a student of his sport since his sprinting days. . .he is good at his job.

I remember when he first started . . . started well and grew into it well

I think Eve's inclination towards pragmatism caused him to lose very "gettable" points in the end though he would still got fair showing out of the team not good but fair, Fenwick's style and temperament just does not suit this team, result aside, If you looked with an unbiased eye yuh could kinda see "sumting" coming together......kinda....still think he needs to be braver, but yuh could kinda see "sumting", whether it real or mirage should be tested, IMHO, can't say that I could see "sumting" with Fenwick results aside, d players seemed uninterested or a little annoyed on d few occasions yuh could judge facial expressions from d footage of games, dat cyah be ah good sign
whether it’s fenwick, fister or hart, these lads want a friend to pat them on the back, not a coach to prepare them to play for their country. I want to know were they disinterested playing for lawrence as well thus the reason they lost 17 games in succession? this international football is not about some prima donnas coming together to lime with the boys and hustle some match fees and head back to their clubs, this is about pride in the uniform. just look at quoto, Quintero and zardes how those guys go out and kill themselves for the shirt, you think they give a damn about who’s coaching them? no, it’s all about the shirt and the fans who travel thousands of miles to see them play. our lads could give less than a damn about that ttfa logo on their uniform, or the flag for that matter, in fact it’s all about them.

in the absolute beginning no maybe not, as tings progress yes, Trinis have fragile sensibilities, annoyingly so, for d most part, Trinis unfortunately like winners and "advantage ting" so Lawrence's collapse to abject failure would have lead to d same said loss of confidence/interest, with Hart it was blatant undermining by d new Admin to get local club players in the team even though it had been proven time and time again dat dem fellas couldn' deal with d pace required by Hart.

did Eve fail, yes, can dat failure be interpreted as abject?, eye of d beholder ting dat, but as I said, I could kinda see "sumting" dey, for whatever dat is worth, can I be proven wrong? yes.....but at dis stage ah willing to find out.

Just want to say that it's more than "something". He clearly has ability as a coach--proven. He certainly cares about the players, staff, and the wellbeing of the country, which is extremely important. He certainly can motivate players and get the best out of them.
Now his over cautious approach to the games (because of fitness and the personnel available to him), was clearly the wrong approach. Too much respect for those opposition. A stronger attacking force certainly puts teams on their back foot.

But it is certainly more than just "something".

As I said somewhere else, I think he is nearly ready, but lacks either courage or belief to make the riskier choices

aka: wanting the job and planning to defend that desire "on his record".

An doh disagree with the thrust of your contribution.

Oui I think that is exactly it.

Verdict?


Is he the man for the job? We are running out of matches to know for sure. Only one left and the findings are inconclusive at best. He could be.

It is why a few weeks ago, in response to a question posed by Anbrat, I suggested that there could be a renewed interim period.


A word of caution to the NC:

Do NOT commit to engaging the Interim Head Coach on a full-time basis based exclusively on performance/qualification/ tournament progress/ other similar configuration.
On what basis should the Interim Head Coach be engaged?

I'll respond in possibly two parts. One here and the other, if necessary, separately.

The range of requisites and considerations for fulfilling the interim role are exceeded by the range of requisites and considerations for the longer-term position. Progression through the tournament should be a discussion starter, rather than constitute securing of the longer term role. 

Substantive response

The first concern is a durational concern: what period should the interim appointment span. Tied to this is defining the precise objective of the interim appointment and the precise benefit sought.

Proposition 1: The interim period should be narrowly construed and construed as narrowly as pragmatic.

The Gold Cup Preliminary Tournament spans July 2 - July 6. The Gold Cup runs from July 10 - August 1. The absence of an appropriate transitional period between July 6 and July 10 suggests that the interim period should contemplate the Preliminary Tournament and the Gold Cup.

If qualification for the GC does not occur, the start of the identification process for a permanent NT coach would and should be triggered on either July 2 or July 6. If GC qualification occurs, the date on which the longer-term identification process is triggered is dependent on the date of GC exit.

Proposition 2: During the interim period, the selection committee should be engaged in orienting itself with alternative candidates for the FT role. It is not necessary that the interim coach have an interest in the longer-term position or be considered for the longer-term role. Indeed that parameter must be defined, either positively or negatively at the outset. It has to be clear. Regardless, that parallel process should be engaged in as a contingency.

The NT appointment is a multiyear assignment and project, of which we can be beneficiaries due to our early elimination. We are 1.5 years away from the start of the Qatar WC and 3.5 years before the 2026 cycle. That's better than borrowed time.

Proposition 3: The larger quantum of that time we use sensibly the better (tied to Proposition 2).

The GC tournament is a solitary event similar in format to the actual WC and demands many of the management challenges tied to a WC. As such, it is a reasonable template for observation of decision-making. However, the focus of the hire should be on a candidate who can progress the competencies and sophistication of the team in keeping with the modern evolution of the game. That is, beyond results, the hire is charged with transformation. If the hire is not a transformative hire, we would be squandering borrowed time. Ground floor transformation. Transformation of culture. Root and branch transformation.

Twinning continuity in the gig merely on the basis of progression through the tournament would be short-sighted because that would ignore some critical dimensions of the job not implicated during the tournament and ignore concerns that ought not be ignored within the dysfunction of the present football ecosystem.

The FIFA windows for 2021 are August 30-September 8 and October 4-October 13.

Proposition 4: The assignment of the longer-term role should commence during the first of these windows. 

That is an on balance call, a question of interpretation and the subject of cost-benefit analysis.

The alternative assignment of the longer-term role would be the January 2022 window. In which event, there could be more than one interim appointment. That may seem inefficient or counterintuitive, but it yields a prospective benefit. However, as a caveat, in terms of timing, it should be considered that mid-year assignments tend to limit the pool of best qualified candidates. That stated, timing is not an insurmountable hurdle if the identification of the eventual candidate is targeted strategically.

I am of the view that Eve's tenure as NT coach should be extended. I can make a case for his continuation and I can make a case against it. However, on balance + nuances, I am of the view that his tenure should be extended with parameters.

Also, there should be comprehensive post-tournament reports submitted for review (technical, logistical, administrative, medical etc.) to the NC, not merely celebration of the points accumulated.

My heart say give him an extended run. Great people manager. Great atmosphere for the team. Loved and respected.

But I don't think he is ready for this level . . . although, not far from it.

I think Assistant Coach to a man like Hart would be ideal.

We will get something from this game tomorrow.

Love your optimism. The guys and Staff believe in each other. I think that factor plays a HUGE role.
My caveat lies in the fact that they played a superior team in Mexico than they will in El Sal. But you see that as a strength. psychologically, that is much harder to manage. To play that hard and keep such concentration at such a high level is tough. Let's hope they can do the same; albeit, with a different strategy tom.

Something I found interesting watching the game on Saturday.
This was the first time for a very long time I saw a T&T team play a top opponent and we looked like a Leo Benhakker side.

I do not know if Eve was a fan of this man as he was quite polarising, but we played the number 11 team in the world with all their stars in a competitive game and we did not look outclassed.

We were a solid, compact unit that played a game of competitive football.

We did not look jittery, we did not look like we were hanging on for dear life. We did not look outclassed.
We gave up a lot of possession, but that will always happen vs Mexico.


When anybody plays Barcelona or City, it does not look very different.

Our goalkeeper made some great saves, but I have seen games where we get trounced and the keeper makes more saves than we saw on Saturday.

This speaks to the greater unit. And also to Angus Eve and his staff for prepping the team.

So the question to ask is - when we play this style, with a Technical Staff who can prepare us to play like this, we can be competitive with the likes of Mexico, England, Sweden etc. If however we switch it up and try to play open, we get results like what Bertille St Clair got when Mexico beat us 4-0 in ~2000. That game could have ended 4-4 as we went out to attack Mexico, but fact is it did not.

I for one much prefer this approach. No more 0-6 defeats vs the US please.

Now the real challenge for Eve and co. is how to approach El Salvador and Guatemala. In theory now we come out a bit more...

I have always felt that T&T plays well on the backfoot and counter-attacking into open space, versus a team that sits back and invites US to be creative. This is why we tend to match up well vs Mexico, but sometimes struggle against some Caribbean nations. We are the Crystal Palace of CONCACAF.

Good luck tomorrow fellas!

PS - the better we do in this tournament, the better chance we have of getting future friendlies with all 8 CONCACAF squads for the upcoming WCQs -- as Jamaica is in that mix.

Totally agree breds. Eve and his staff appear to be analyzing & thinking through each opponent and approaching each of them differently according to the strengths of his team. Seems logical but lots of work and belief in your players required. It is obvious also that he (they) have instilled this confidence in each of the players as well. No inferiority complex among them. Infused with an appropriate dose of reality (fitness etc.).
Breath of fresh air . . .

It used to be a strong tradition in the "Trinidad & Tobago" family. But sadly, instead of it being honed and used effectively, it seems to have been discouraged by some European clubs.

Since I saw TF's dunce interviews, praising up his team which beat thrown together,makeshift bands of local players, and his condescending tone,
I predicted zero wins. And I felt the sooner we lost and got out of the way will be best.

Of course, I was happy to be wrong with the Guyana win, but not surprised with his anachronistic British style of play.

Look Loy called it on his piece over in Wired868.

But anybody looking for him to resign after a string of losses is misguided. Just take his predecessor, DL, stubborn, and not going anywhere. The money too sweet.

Sorry to be so pessimistic but I don't see an avenue for optimism except maybe in the players themselves who take it upon themselves to do something

Football / Re: Terry Fenwick Thread.
« on: February 04, 2021, 01:32:13 PM »
From my observation on Fenwick.

I think Terry can form a decent game plan. But it would be quite basic. He usually create teams from the back. Solid defence, hard to breakdown but not very imaginative going forward. Lots of 0-0 and 1-0 results.

I don’t think he can change tactics mid game. So if he goes 1-0 down, he probably will lose. His talent is in building a good team spirit. Players will fight for him and dig deep. He’s a good motivator. However, he rarely takes responsibility and usually blame players for poor results.

See how Liburd turned on Terry? He’s really developed a reputation of stabbing people in the back. You notice how lots of the main football people don’t talk to him? He’s shit on everyone over the years!

Terry will do well against most regional teams, but the better coached teams will expose his lack of tactical ability. Check Terry’s stats in Belgium. Lots of whippings over there because his lack of tactical adaptability was exposed!

Look how he did nothing on Sunday vs USA to stop the attacks down the wings! His successes have always come when he’s had money to spend. That’s because the players make him look good! When Clico left Jabloteh, Terry followed. He demands exorbitant salaries and will sacrifice players to earn what he wants.

As for Sean Bonval, he is ok. He could be a regular in the team but he won’t be a star.



This is CLEAR to see.

Hmmm! I have wanted to hear an Arnold Corneal perspective on football for a while, but I didn't see it coming on the heels of Sunday.

Looks like the Corneals are circling the wagons and Fenwick and Hadad are in the ring. Must mean Anton is still to be paid and still not integrated into the NC/TTFA structure alternatively ... so kick up dust and lick shots at the bleeding.

NONETHELESS, the parties under attack ambushed themselves. And I think we all figured out that Arnold is absolutely correct about Fenwick wanting to announce himself to the world. Earl Best also sussed that desire.

Will we be able to get to the Guyana match incident free? T&T football is like a minefield of constantly detonating bombs.

Sure! But what of the TRUTH of his comments?

I addressed that singular comment as "absolutely correct" because the rest is in evidence. I don't disagree. The one caveat I would tender is that if a NT coach uses his discretion to select an opponent, why malign the administrative side?

I do not know the precise mechanics of how this offer/arrangement came about. What was the decision-making process? Was the Technical Director involved? What was the hierarchy of decision-making? How influential was the TV/ streaming element?

I understand why the match was tempting, but my view has been that we should have scrimmaged. Rotated players in and out and met the observation component maxg stated. Say 30 x 3 [x 2 days] Who knows?, it is also tied to the US training calendar and they had Canada in mind etc.

But, the TV friendly was a step too far. Somehow I feel if KLL was still "TC/TD" and this offer came up, an atomic bomb would have been detonating on the pages of Wired. There would likely have been an internal clash on this and how it was constructed.

Thank You! Yes you did. Sorry I missed it. Thanks for your balanced critique. Seems to be missing from quite a few of the analyses

I 100% agree with him and Eve. (Although, I thought Eve's comments are ill-timed.

Ever since TF appointment, I adopted a wait and see for myself attitude since I only heard of his success at Jab. and his penchant for discipline along with the many calls to "Give Fenwick a chance"
But listening to his interviews, he has struck a largely superior attitude. He has taken no responsibility for his naive decisions and quick to throw his players under the bus. . .shameful indeed, disrespectful indeed.
Sadly too many T&T nationals will wait till he takes T&T further afield before the sack. And he is going nowhere, the money too sweet and he is in league with the nonsense that is the NC.

When I first heard that we were going to play US in a friendly, my initial reaction was, No!!! We are far from ready to take on the US at this time. They will only ramp up the score and rub it in our noses. Reinforce the notion that they are some type of superior foot-balling nation.
But considering that we desperately needed a game from somewhere, and that it wasn’t going to be their full strength team, I conceded that we don’t have much choice.
And that’s just the problem—putting ourselves in the position where we don’t have much choice. We will not go too far as a foot-balling nation living behind the 8 ball.
Not sure how helpful this exercise turned out to be. I’ll watch from a distance

Are funds unaccounted for ? Are there unexplained money disbursements and unlawful splitting of contracts ?  Are there unexplained payments and non-board approved decisions ? Was there improper work and unfinished projects in and around the Home of Football ? Was there no-paymet of staff Salaries and non-payments to creditors and government offices ? Was everything on the up financially and administratively ? Did the debt grow to a substantial amount ?  Who was in charge ? Who made the decisions ? Who bought material in Panama ?

By the way, did you catch his latest version of 'in the fullness of time'? Forthcoming book blah blah blah.

DJW at times casts a pathetic figure gifted with borderline buffoonery.

He appears to believe that he is his best advocate, but there are moments when one has the impression that he would be better served by a surrogate advocating on this behalf ... because he bumbles and stumbles over the massaging he's trying to deliver. He does not appreciate the credibility gap that accompanies him nor does he service the gap with any polish.

Stunning and unnecessary. And really no longer entertaining.

There have been a couple tackles during this first half that made me grimace in concern for Molino.

Yep, especially knowing his history.

But he is a very intelligent player. . .he has learned a lot from them.

I'm wondering what is Jones' role. I mean what did the coach tell him. Where is his creativity? Several times it seemed beter to take on his man instead of forcing a pass,

Seems they were looking to generate the opportunity from outside.

Alright, Coco yuh win. I will risk back to back weeks of you dragging us into another "international incident". ;D

Although I sense that they lacked another body (hence playing out rather than in) and coordination/timing in the box, knowing his individual quality, it's always difficult when you don't see him in an expressive mode. Might have been his own leash.

Nah ah doh think we have to worry about that here.  ;D

An’ yuh doh have tuh bite eh. But last night was the most fluid and energized I’ve seen JJ play in a while.

He hasn’t been the player we know he could be. That’s also what sparked the thought of the coach’s instructions. But I do see it may just as well be his own delimitations for the self-same reasons.

BTW my team lost last night. I wanted Minn to advance and Molino to put his stamp on the league.
