Trini_2026,I too was surprised by some of his comments and his over reaction to the win,I understand you clearly,I was very surprised at the win,and looking back we seemed to have had some better chances than the Yard,I feel to, we could have had a penalty.I think the second match today would really tell us more about the Soca Wrriors and whether the Reggaeboyz are are good as they think.

Thanks man I have been trying to get the name for some time now,I should have known that but yuh cyah remember everything,I am kickin as you say,but I never thought I would have made it.Just as I got over the cancer I was diagnosed with 3 blocked arteries in my heart.I was told it must be done as early as possible,I eventually had stents put in my blocked arteries on the 9th Feb 23.I am recovering well you won't believe it.Thanks again for the info.Respect!

General Discussion / An old Calypso...
« on: February 20, 2023, 08:39:54 AM »
My father always bought Calypsoes and I recall one which was very funny,I don't know the title but I remember the first line,it went like this;"Ah smartman name Johnathan make he wife Lillian take out an Insurance Policy,was to fool de Insurance Company,she make em go and lie dong in bed and get a quack docto r to say he dead,in the wake they drink rum and coffee,and started to shout out this melody,doctor say yuh dead Johnathan please close yuh eyes Johnathan".
Does anyone knows the tune and could you tell me who sang it,also I suspect the title of the song will be important.Thanks in advance.

sorry to hear frico. 2026 fuh sure!
I had 7 months of Chemo Therapy which killed the the Tumor and it was cancerous ready to spread.It seems I have been lucky because it was caught in time,I still will have to live with a certain amount of drugs and checks with the hospital from time to time.I am steadily building back up to gain some strength,I was 160lbs,I am now 130.I hope to see us in 2026 just like you say.

There's nothing that you can say about Canada apart of how ordinary they look, we look just a little worse but can still score 2 goals,and with 10 men.I hope we can improve and that's not out of the question.

PS. I have beaten off Cancer over the past 7 months with Chemo Therapy at a Hospital in London.

kounty I would push myself to reach 2026 with TT repping,It all depends on the results of how well the Chemo Therapy works in knocking out the Tumor,that will be known in Feb or March 2023.In the meantime I try to be as normal as I could be.Apart from my problem,I wonder if you ever heard a Calypso in which the first line went something like this."A smartman name Jonathan make he wife Lilian,take out an Insurance Policy, was to fool the Insurance company,she make im go and lie dong in bed and get a quak doctor to say he dead. In de wake they drink Rum and coffee and started to shout out this melody,Doctor say yuh dead jonathan please close yuh eyes jonathan".Would you be able to say who sang that tune,If yuh too young can you ask someone and tell me.Thank you.

Not doing too well mate,I was hoping to see our game back to even close to our glory days but the bad news for me is,i may not live to see it,I have been diagnosed with LYMPHOMA,a blood cancer and a cancerous Tumor in my Intestine.I am going through Chemo Therapy which ends in Feb.2023.They will find out then, how things have gone,if it's good I will be in remission with checks from time to time.TBH i am trying to be as normal as ever,and hope.All the best to you and the members of the football site,I would like to wish Trinidad and its people all the best for a bright and great future,not forgetting Christmas and New Year.

Simply our coaches don't have a bloody clue,that is now plain to see.KJ mentions nothing about our technical deficiencies he has a way of avoiding blame saying "we are better than that",Mr Jones you are not good enough and so is this team,people shouldn't be ashamed to say they are rubbish.

AB Trini,very inspiring  and it would be nice if the boys take on those words,it's the kind of talk you expect from a coach before the team steps out on the pitch.Don't forget,we had Haiti by the "short and curlies" before the lights went out,we just lost the momentum,bad luck,we played in a swamp against Mexico who looked a stronger team physically,I hope we see a team that has learned a few lessons,win,lose or draw.

We seem to be turning the corner slowly,this will be such a big deal for us to top our table and it's a strong possibility we may do so.We Trini supporters haven't had much to celebrate over the last 10/12 years,let's hope we have something now.

Turning a corner with a victories over St Vincent and Bahamas?
St Vincent is nobody's fool and could be proper "banana skin",just remember Bahamas a few months ago and you'll see why I said "turning the corner slowly".The team is showing some improvement and I can't deny them that.I think we will top our group.Have faith Trini_2026

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.

The posts that I saw before the match with Guyana led me to believe that we should win,how wrong can people be,I always thought we were flimsy,it always happen so I am not shocked.Guyana was always known for their world famous cricketers,now in recent times they are doing quite good in other sports,a new culture is taking over.

Judging from the highlights we should have won,first thing,it was never a penalty,it was a great tackle and he even come out with the ball,you couldn't get a cleaner tackle.We had clear cut chances,abou 3 and a couple half chances.This was a good Guyana team and we didn't take them lightly.I see TT getting better,and this is a very encouraging start.

asylumseeker;I understand better now,but I still feel there are possiblities for them,maybe some can make it to the Super League,and as a massive country ,as I said before they could be scouted to Europe.I still maintain that Indian football has improved a hell of a lot,I can recall India getting rolled over by everybody,it doesn't happen now,as you will know.Respect mate!

I can't help but notice the funny posts about our players who choose to sign for clubs in the Indian Professional Football League.The fact that the Indian League attracts players from Europe,South America,Central America,Africa and Oceana.Doesn't that say something,also India have an Eastern European Coach and scouts will always be on the lookout for players,that could be a reason for our players going to India.It's not to be laughed at,at least see the positive side and wish them the best.India stands at 104 and TT 101,the crowds are bigger than our PL and appears to be more exciting.One week ago Bahrain beat India 2-1,that score would have been trebled 5 or 6 years ago.Most of the Indian team had Visa problems and had to step out and play Bahrain 2 hours after landing.Belarus beat India a couple days later 3-0,again that score could easily have been 6 or 7 nil 5 years ago,Belarus is 94 in FIFA standings,Bahrain 89 and we are 101.No big difference there,but the fact is our boys could possibly get into Europe because scouts are always on the lookout,also the league is bigger that ours so wish them luck instead of laughing at them.

Something is telling me that Eve may surprise some by taking our football out of the doldrums,I also think he could be right in concentrating on our homegrown players.If we have from outside of TT who wants to play for us,they must show that they want to play for us at some stage in their career.

“We have the local-based players training four days a week in Guyana and the only way to test their level of readiness is to give them that match exposure,” the Guyana coach explained. “[…] This first game we wanted to use the local players […] to measure the work we have done. Against Trinidad and Tobago, we will try to play more of the overseas-based players and try to make it a match.”

Sensible stuff from Coach Shabazz.

I heard Guyana was beating Barbados 3-0 at halftime.
Final score Guyana 5 -Bim 0...goals in the 12,37,41,49 and 61 mins.One of the goals was a penalty in the 49th min.Guyana may be a better fight,they do have about 5 players from outside Guyana in quite minor leagues in England,Canada and one player in big deal.I hope we put a proper cutarse pon dem.

Judging by the results of the first matches played last night 03-09-21,Jamaica was the only team that lost to Mexico,their winner came in the 89th minute,a very surprising result was El Salvador v USA draw,all the rest were draws.These results are not surprising because slowly,but surely the weaker teams are catching up.
   I would just like to say, we didn't do too bad in our recent failures, when you consider all the upheavals our football has gone through over the last 5 years or more.It is also safe to say that we wouldn't have had a team good enough to beat any of those teams that are presently competing in the Hex,purely because of non football issues.We must try and put a great effort in our approach to the Caribbean ChampionsTrophy,this could be a new start.I am growing older with the thought of,"how the once best football team in the Caribbean can fall so far behind the the rest",that needs some serious explanation.

DeeksI said I won't post again but I respect you and a 2 or 3 others.I wasn't planning to offend, but when I said Jamaicans say "we talk too much",I tell them is allyuh who talk too much.I am up against about 5 ah dem.Sometimes I wish TT can ram all the crap that they talk down their throats,when we lose they know and wait for meh.Where are all those ballers that we used to produce,what happen to that culture.When I came to England I played Sunday morning football in Scrubs Lane in Shephers Bush,most of the blokes were Jamaicans,many would ask me "way yuh fram bway",when I replied  Trinidad,they would say,no wonder "yuh so good".I am just pointing out how well the rest of the Caribbean knew about our football culture,we lost our pride or what,I dunno man.I find it's taking too long to get back even close to where were,maybe there's more to it than I know.Regards.
