Well like TM buss, so let me give some hints.

They both scored centuries at Test level.
They both played county cricket.
They are not from POS.

Actually both Carew and WR grew up in Woodbrook so you never know. But as you are not sure. But points for proximity. LOL

HINT: They were both batsmen but did not play for the WI at the same time.

Which two neighbours from TT living on the same street, both ended up playing cricket for the WI.

I only know of one instance but I have a feeling I am about to be surprised. ;-)

Football / Re: TTFA to drop Soca Warriors name
« on: June 25, 2019, 08:17:13 PM »
It does not matter what name the TTFA drop or accept. THE FANS WILL ALWAYS SEE THE TEAM AS THE SOCA WARRIORS!

Nothing can stop a young boy in school from growing up to be another Soca Warriors, nothing can stop the people going to the stadium chanting the soca warrior anthem.

In the end it does not matter what the federation or a court or an opportunist individual seeking money because when it comes to the love of the team from the fans and how people want to support team then they cannot change the names fans apply to players or the team!

I think Melville more than agrees with you. He just trying to get paid.

I get the "function name must be a string" error too just using a browser, sometimes even just on a post, but usually the post went thru (even though I get that error).

I have the same damn problem.

A couple months ago, I couldn't even access the site, I had to use a vpn and sometimes it worked and sometimes not.

But regarding the "string error sht" I get it every time I post although the post did go through.

Finally looked at the game.

Very impressed with Phillip. If he is looking for a contract abroad, highlights from that game should do it.

Except for "The Battle of Winterfell" this season deserves one big, fat, watery......

STEUPSSSS!!!!!

Mainly because there was no book to base it on and the writers took their own take. The final episode was anticlimactic as fk.

Anticlimactic as f***! Even the actress who plays Damaris, Emilia Clarke, says that it was shity writing the way her character experienced a switch of character. Also this season was not from the book at all.

Nobody posting anymore. Too much spoiler alerts? I'm curious to hear what you guys think of the last episode in King's Landing and the season in general.

Honestly I expected King's Landing to put up more resistance. I guess seeing their vulnerability in the previous episodes I didn't expect Kalesi's men to just steamroll the city like that but then again it was all hinged on that fking Dragon.

Trini author in deal with Netflix


https://www.guardian.co.tt/news/trini-author-in-deal-with-netflix-6.2.798965.e74686aa5b

Net­flix has snapped up the tele­vi­sion rights for the as yet to be pub­lished de­but nov­el of T&T na­tion­al Car­o­line MacKen­zie, which tells the tale of a Venezue­lan fam­i­ly liv­ing in this coun­try il­le­gal­ly.

The pub­lish­ing rights for MacKen­zie’s nov­el “One Year of Ug­ly”, have been pur­chased by Bor­ough Press for the Unit­ed King­dom and the Com­mon­wealth ex­clud­ing Cana­da, while 37 Ink has bought the pub­lish­ing rights for the nov­el in the Unit­ed States.

Ann Bis­sell, pub­lic­i­ty di­rec­tor at Harper­Collins, ac­quired “One Year of Ug­ly” for Bor­ough Press from Sue Arm­strong at C&W Agency.

TV rights were im­me­di­ate­ly snapped up by Net­flix, han­dled by Luke Speed at Cur­tis Brown, and US rights were ac­quired by Dawn Davis, v.p. and pub­lish­er at 37 INK, an im­print of Si­mon & Schus­ter, from Zoe San­dler at ICM Part­ners.

The busi­ness mag­a­zine of the book in­dus­try, The Book­seller, an­nounced the three-way auc­tion for MacKen­zie’s nov­el in an ar­ti­cle last week.

Hard­cov­er pub­li­ca­tion of the book is sched­uled for March 2020.

MacKen­zie, a free­lance trans­la­tor liv­ing in T&T, has de­scribed the deal as “a dream come true”.

“Through my dai­ly trans­la­tion work, I’ve been not­ing the in­flux of Venezue­lans in re­sponse to the po­lit­i­cal and eco­nom­ic cri­sis for years, and have been both fas­ci­nat­ed and dis­heart­ened by the lo­cal re­ac­tion to it,” MacKen­zie is quot­ed as say­ing in The Book­seller.

“I knew there was a sto­ry to be told of the Venezue­lan mi­grant ex­pe­ri­ence in Trinidad, and I’m so hap­py I was able to tell it through Yola,” she said.

Yola Pala­cios is the pro­tag­o­nist and nar­ra­tor of “One Year of Ug­ly”.

“One Year of Ug­ly is an im­mi­gra­tion sto­ry ex­plor­ing ex­ile, be­long­ing and ex­ploita­tion with hi­lar­i­ty, verve, and com­pas­sion. In Yola Pala­cios, Car­o­line has cre­at­ed a char­ac­ter un­like any oth­er I have met: she is bril­liant­ly wit­ty and bru­tal­ly fun­ny in her ob­ser­va­tions. I ab­solute­ly love her and I hope many read­ers will too,” Bis­sell is quot­ed as say­ing.

“Hav­ing es­caped crum­bling, so­cial­ist Venezuela, Yola Pala­cios hopes she and her fam­i­ly can fi­nal­ly set­tle in­to a peace­ful new life in Trinidad,” Bor­ough Press ex­plained.

“Life for the Pala­cios is nev­er qui­et, and when Yola’s for­mi­da­ble Aunt Celia dies, the fam­i­ly once again find them­selves liv­ing on the edge. For Celia had been keep­ing a very big se­cret – a lo­cal crim­i­nal called Ug­ly to whom Celia owes an aw­ful lot of mon­ey. With­out the funds to pay him off, Ug­ly forces the en­tire fam­i­ly to do his bid­ding un­til Celia’s debt is set­tled. What Ug­ly says, the Pala­cios do, oth­er­wise: big trou­ble,” it stat­ed.

MacKen­zie is a for­mer na­tion­al schol­ar who speaks four lan­guages and holds a Mas­ters in tech­ni­cal trans­la­tion from Im­pe­r­i­al Col­lege Lon­don.

She was short­list­ed for the 2017 Com­mon­wealth Short Sto­ry Prize for “The Dy­ing Wish”, and was the win­ner of the 2018 Small Axe Lit­er­ary Com­pe­ti­tion short fic­tion cat­e­go­ry for her satir­i­cal short sto­ry ‘The Chick­en Coup: A Dis­tinct­ly Mas­cu­line Ad­ven­ture for Dis­tinct­ly Man­ly Men”

Saw "Off-stick" playing for Sir Frank Worrell Utd in the Central St.George in St.Joseph. He was a very good attacking mid-fielder. He and striker "Nobbie" Philips were a great attacking pair for Sir. Frank. He also played for East and a couple games for TT in the early 70s. RIP. Thanks for the good memories.

Go here https://www.facebook.com/concacafcom/ or facebook search Concacaf  and you will find it.  Look under the videos tab and go from there.  You can set up notifications when they post live games, or just facebook search the two sides that you want to see play and the live video feed will pop up.

Actually, I think I did this on the Con page and you have to pay 1.99.

Did as you said, the only option was to sign up which takes you to the Con page where u have to pay. If you guys didn't pay, guess I am screwing up somehow.

TT leads 3-1 in the 80th minute.

Just read Newsday. Yes, it is his son and the blasted staff working for free. So at least we don't  have to worry about  them waiting to get paid. They already not getting paid.

Tim Kee: Home of Football project ‘started with me.
By Joel Bailey (Newsday).


 What you see now, we are not in anything. We are not a respected football country in the Caribbean. That is why Concacaf representative office is in Jamaica, a FIFA office is in Jamaica and Jamaica is hosting Gold Cup (matches).

“We have the best grounds, the most supporters. What it says is FIFA does not respect us because we don’t respect ourselves anymore. We don’t have any programmes.”




Nail on the fking head!
