One really has to wonder how is it that one entity could monopolize the governance of this sport? Operating like the IMF,  if you pump up assets in countries, you most likely have to protect those assets and look for returns.
...

Like professional leagues in UK, Europe and North America, what if countries wanted to  have independent  world tournaments  not sanctioned by FIFA? I think after these years, it it time to  revamp and  counties rid themselves hostage of  a monopolizing world body  that acts like a super power in this sport!!!

so Fifa overturn the election and install a normel committee, watch like a hawk for gov't "intervention" in the football affairs, then submit their operating expenses budget to my gov't normel, normel?

We had no draft pics for 2022

You self. When is de last time we had a player who was drafted? Maybe Nicholas Walker in 2014? Dem days seem to be long gone. We ent have much players in NCAA Div I, and those that are there either not getting much minutes or not performing at the required level to pique the interest of the clubs.
Good compact dose of reality for those of us who wasn't paying as close attention. Thanx 2 u both.

International Friendly #1 (Dominican Republic vs Trinidad and Tobago)

<a href="https://www.youtube.com/v/jvqQg4r3DcM" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" class="bbc_link bbc_flash_disabled new_win">https://www.youtube.com/v/jvqQg4r3DcM</a>
Thanks for this link.
Who was #11? (#s would have been helpful too).
I find they dominated large swathes of the middle of match [i'm sure stats on shots on goal etc would bear witness] and conceded a defensive blunder/ lapse in concentration goal. Having said that I didn't see any tactical adjustments or plan or anything to suggest that this team is going anywhere (yet)-- just individually talented / physically stronger players here and there that can string passes together...most-times.

« on: October 22, 2021, 11:00:55 AM »
The football market is an intriguing commercial space. Trimmingham is locked into employment ... Muckette is locked out of employment. Apples and oranges? Yes, but fruits on similar vines.

Muckette must not want to go to India.

I think it might be saying something. just like Trimmingham in late August of this year get "converted" to striker...to leading his team to victory with a brace today. That says something about character. Although I didn't like how he play for T&T, must have something there.

didn't see him come on for that match. was he even on the bench? their defense seem pretty solid, made up entirely of south american internationals. Does he get playing time for this squad? (or did sheriff just recently buy some more defenders to push keston down the order)?

Is $90 for the match jersey. Kinda steep for the brand. It look nice though.

Ent. Optimistic pricing out of whack with the state of play.

....

now i am certainly not an advocate for mr fenwick but he was criticized by the whole nation especially those former footballers  for his results, but angus whp performed poorly is being endorsed by the whole football fraternity, did i fking miss something here?
...

I respect the rest of your post  :beermug: , but also think it a bit disingenuous on the comparison between Fenwick and Eve to a) Restrict the conversation to "competitive matches" so as to not mention a worst-ever drubbing against a natural comparison to Mexico and b) to not try to compare teams faced -- using  Most recent Fifa Rankings for example, with PR & Montserrat similarly ranked, and Eve's opposition in the upper half of our Confed's rankings (obviously Fr Guiana has no ranking) vs those near the bottom.

** edit -- I guess you could compare St Kitts vs Guatemala -- the the idea of 'competitive match' would come back into play.

Really, what has he done to merit such considerations? he brought back an old outdated goal keeper and a few washed up players who’s past their prime, he’s won a single game decisively parked the bus vs mexico and couldn’t get passed beatable el salvador and guatemala and was unable to win a single game in the gold cup bowing out to the competition.

since he’s been coach he has used nearly the whole team playing a five man defense against a team that couldn’t even get passed guadelope, and you want him back? no mate. let angus go find his way just like latapy stern John and jamal shabbaz who experimented on small island teams, let him coach the in the pro league and gain some experience before he’s allowed to take over our national team, no bloody way will I endorse him, he’s rubbish just like all the others.
I'm interested in hearing a similar assessment of Fenwick's tenure, with conclusions for possible re-hire.

Youtube lets you set the playback speed. Slow down to 0.25X under Settings (the gear wheel symbol below) and check out the screen that Powder eat for the Guatemala goal. All the defensive heads on the board - how you defend against this?

Good finish, I didn't think Alvin J saw the pass but it was perfect.
he didn't. Miss kick
I didn't think so. Alvin take it upon himself to take on players from the back and make the run all the way. what you all think he was aiming for?

Who is your alternative to Khan? He wasn't recalled.
Frenderup
Jones
David
Abu Bakr
Williams
Powder
Hachshaw
Muckette
Molino
  Moore
Telfer



...and not b/c i'm a great fan of Hackshaw so far, but i think he could improve...and muckette could add more fight to his game.

Post your gut as to the starters you think will feature tonight and post your view on how you would like the team to start (if there's a difference between both).

Maybe :
Frenderup
Jones
David
Abu Bakr
Williams
Powder
Khan
Muckette
Molino
  Moore
Telfer




maybe I missed if Khan ever came on and shat himself. can't remember how powder played either if he ever came on, but club page says he can play left mid.


but eve keep pickin jelani peters, marcus joseph and russel jr..and i would like a rest from dem.

Anybody knows if T&T is allowed to call up any new players for these upcomnig GC games?



even if so, seems like Eve delusional about the strength of this current squad. Would like to hear his comments on if he even want to, or tried.

Falling-out blamed for failed programme: Bad Wolf Sports reeling after ‘Sunday Express’ exposé
By Denyse Renne (T&T Express)


Part III of an investigation into football scholarships in Trinidad and Tobago.

Business sponsorship

Deakin’s e-mail to Moorland noted he had been made aware of “an article over in Trinidad which attempts to paint the programme as ‘not genuine’ and/or ‘suspicious’”.

“BWS were engaged to explore the possibility of creating an ‘on-island’ programme for T&T youths which we could deliver without the need for the scholars to leave the island—Moorlands delivering edu­cational elements and The Football Factory Foundation delivering practical coaching...,” he wrote.

Deakin stated the scholarship concept had established interest among the business community in T&T, with businesses providing sponsorship to the TTPS which would then be diverted to the FFF, which would deliver coaching.

YEAH, TONG TO ARIMA BY 5!! TONG TO ARIMA BY 5!! (sound so familiar).

Moore has potential.. he played well, never seen him play before tbh
I think eve should call up Cummings tbh, he will be a great addition to this squad..

Eves coaching was better than both DL and Fenwick..

Will wait to see how they perform against better opposition but its a decent start for Eve and the team compared to what we have been seeing ...
agree with the tempered outlook. i like how frederup, telfer, aubrey & moore played. without molino to put the team on a solid footing in the 1st half i think they would have struggled. the minutes under the belt  made for a generally more fluid 2nd half showing. wasn't a complex enough game to see change in tactics or anything, so can't praise or blame eve yet. i think he try a few guys who --moore worked well, but i didn't like peters, russel jr or marcus joseph. i still wanting to see jesse williams encouraged, as better than others chosen. good outing, but i hope the favorites talk isn't true and we don't continue to see men who visably don't have the gc levels
