On one hand, the US and Mexico have it nice and easy while the rest are crabs in a barrel. On the other hand, us crabs are getting competitive games, real cut throat games where we have no choice but to perform. As for the US and Mexico, yea they'll get good friendlies but the teams they play wont go at them full velocity. That's how I see things...

levi is a left winger not a striker ... DL using him out of position look at levi  old vid clips  we have  shahdon winchester there and he is on the bench

Do you think Shahdon Winchester should be there?

Honestly yea, I think he should be there. If you look at some of the games we actually did score, his name was there. Garcia is a left winger who will drive into the box, give you that nice low cross to tap in, he is no striker.

I dont blame the players one bit. The talent is there. The people inside the TTFA, DJW especially, is poisoning the whole footballing body. I think Lawrence should be given one more chance, as long as theres a much better president in power. But my belief in him is dwindling. We go again.

Just called the official distributor of T&T kits in Trinidad and they 'haven't released' the new kit and 'sold out' of the old one. Anybody who tried to buy a T&T kit recently would realize that that is the official song, and T&T fans can't even buy our own kit. This is not a real team we supporting. This is a shell business for marketing certain pro league players (akin to how certain people who cyah drive no ass does pass the drivers' test). Imagine things so bad we looking back at the Tim Kee reign as the good old days.

It looks like theres a new sponsor, called Capelli sport. Looks like a company out of Germany. Just saw a post from the TTFA with Capelli sport tagged.

Steups them from NY/NJ

That is a small time company. Good for them if they expanding but we is a joke

Lol I had no idea, their website wasnt loading up and according to their Facebook page, theyve signed contracts with german teams in the lower tiers. I really liked the jerseys from joma smh.

So, ffisback. Tell us what you will do right to change the situation. Keeping in mind that DJW is the president of ttfa and has the backings of some the zone and also has the fifa president on his side, for now. Why don’t you form a group to run for the elections. Ah mean seriously. You don’t have to run for the post. But get some people who you feel can do the job.
The TTFF has been improperly run for over 50 years it could probably take several years to straighten out all there problems while I will love to go back home to help my team I have to weigh the pro's and con's I left Trinidad as a teenager I have know contacts with people who are inside the football fraternity I will be going up against the pre colonial system that the British establish and the post colonial system that E Williams and the PNM regime establish so they could stay in power just like how the people on this site want to cut throat if I go down there my life will be in danger.
The 1st thing I would do is if I was in charge would be to take J Warner to court to get the TTFF money it could take several years but its worth it the 2nd would be to look for a coach that will give TT a better chance of going to the WC and  Olympics and I will put in to host the Olympic qualifiers in 2020 that's the 1st things I would take care off.
so you won't be making us successful. and will only be then looking for a coach after you win elections, after several years of straightening out stuff, meanwhile your throwing money behind shysters to get money from ah slippery eel in a deep hole, who would probably have to pay ppl back before he pays TTFF, and nobody ketch dat jumbie yet.Thus so further depleting the few resources you have to do programs, games, pay staff an players for court expenses.
 Meanwhile you still looking for a coach or another coach, as you run out of money to hire or pay the 1st coach you was looking for, or don't have enough, as you have to pay the last set of coaches, staff and players owed, besides trying to complete "home of football" that was started by previous admin. Meanwhile, ppl suing your organization for stuff the previous organization didn't pay. So you end up hiring the cheapest coach you can get, someone who working for free as he trying to get his foot wet. Everybody cussing you, cause you hire this cheap coach and we can't win a game. Oh and it has been a few years now.
Finally, that coach start to win more than he lose, but turn round and lose to Grenada - a few of your players went Nottinghm boatride or in Toronto instead of flying in for pregame meeting, cause they didn't get paid and coach drop them - so you fire he, cause you fire other coaches for less. He demand payment of contract, although he was cheap, yuh owe him for a few years. Yuh call some padnas from socawarriors.net to work for expense only and bail yuh out. The Board want to know who is these ppl you pull in, ah bunch ah foreigners, now come trying to take over our game. Them charge and suing yuh ass too. Your padnas start demanding their expense, cause dem coming to help, but cyah do nothing..You quietly decline running in next elections, and move back out to foreign, cause yuh life in more danger now, than when yuh went.

 :D ;D :D


Wheyyyy drop the mic on that one  :rotfl: :rotfl: :applause: :applause:

all this talk of youth not getting a chance and Latapy just basically said that SSFL don't develop footballing intelligence in our youth........thing is our most notable young prospect not too long ago IMHO displayed this very said lack of football intelligence........I once hypothesized a while ago that Latapy's struggle as a coach has much to do with his seeming inability to "transfer that intelligence" as a coach......on his feet Latapy made the players around him somehow "magically" better will never forget dat 20mins against Paraguay in 06 where ah team was disjointed for 70min was suddenly playing all over Paraguay....man suddenly knowing where to be for the flick pass...dropping to pull players and create space...all while forming these fluid triangles....

I watch SSFL highlights every now and then and while you see nice individual football you don't see much good TEAM football.....all dat fluff jus to say that all these INDIVIDUALS ffsback going on about generally leave much to be desired when their INDIVIDUAL talents get nullified, and often very easily, by better "educated" players on better "educated" TEAMS.....d whole is always greater than d sum of d parts....something our football culture often ignores.....yuh ever notice dat we have ah chronic habit of defending with half ah team :-\ watch d last american goal, how long it take to score and how many attacking players reach back to support....................


I agree that the SSFL is not good enough anymore but my problem is with the fact that DL is not giving these younger players a chance to play on the senior team that's the only way they will improve is if they play against better players.
DJW has a hand in player selections!!! DL I'm sure given the chance to choose freely, wouldve given younger players a chance. Lawd I cant wait for DJW to be gone and we get a proper president who will show full support to the TTFA as a whole, THEN will you be proven wrong. Allyuh...remember this thread when things change.

Put yourself as the TT coach in this present situation. Do you think you can do any better? Imaging you presenting short term and long term strategies for TT national team. Just think about that.

From the time the world cup qualifiers were done, I would have gone with a team to qualify for the Olympics 2020. Leave Levi Garcia and Joevin Jones to establish themselves professionally. Keep Bateau to help with the younger defenders coming through and maybe Hyland for his experience, and Molino when the next world cup campaign come around.

We really have nobody so great that younger players can't supplant them in preparation for the future.
I agree with you 100% but it seems as if DL has not gotten the message so it is better we get rid of this guy while we ahead of the game.

I agree with that also. TTFA should have two senior teams. The U-23 being the B team. They should have the local U-23 play against Caribbean opposition or any  CA or SA team that will schedule a game with us. TTFA is unable to multitask. The leader has on blinders. The blinders is focusing on the construction of the hotel. DL could only go so far with DJW without him being fired.
That's not DJW job that's the coach's job I remember when G Cummings and Z Vanes had the team they used to bring younger players into the team DL does not do that because he does not know what he is doing that's why he should be fired.
DJW is the one who is telling DL which players he should pick, DJW did it to Hart, and Hart refused which resulted him getting fired.
If S Hart was picking his own team and still getting his but kick he deserved to get fired.

DJW was stirring up trouble amongst the players, you didnt see that did you? DJW didnt want Hart from the get go.

Good win but tallest not playing a deadly brand like what hart had us playing at our peak

Also where is Cummins? And hyland as capt, hmmmm

I guess Greg can’t get a call up

We need to replace DL and DJW if we are to have any chance of quatar
Nothing wrong with DL in my mind, replace DJW with someone who can give DL full support and freedom of choosing players, then you will see a difference.

I watched J Bostock play today and he looks like a box to box English player he would help T&T midfield a lot.
Is years we saying that breds, the man actually showed up to play in the qualifiers and his paperwork wasn't cleared....go figure!

But ent de paperwork was eventually sorted out but then he kinda blank we without really saying it?  Like he just kept not coming to join the team for one reason or another?  Is he or ah mixing him up with someone else??  :thinking:

I feel it have something to do with DJW, wasnt bostock shunned by him?

Not taking side with DJW on this. but imagine if the US had approached TT in a similar situation. You doh think that TT would have done everything to accommodate the USSF to come to TT.

Doesnt matter who you are or where you're from. There are rules to follow, and you simply cant get a Visa within a few days. These other countries, who dont have a US embassy by the way, got theirs done. What do you have to say about that?

One in de pipeline.

Maybe a call up could rejuvenate his career. I say he could at least be given a last chance.

But he hadda earn dat last chance.

Actually, Hart gave him the call up, and he did fairly. Especially in the second Mexico game when we tied 3-3.  But then there was the move to the US league. Tampa and that did not work out and he went back Europe. Then DJW got elected and with all the bachanal, he got lost in the shuffle. I would like to see him get a call up again.

Actually, he went to Jacksonville Armada then North Carolina FC, where he scored a total of 2 goals in 22 appearances, one goal for each club. So as you can see, he dropped off badly. Keep in mind that the Mexico game was almost three years ago.
I would like to see him get one last chance but yes he has to earn that chance. Didn't he have an injury as well? And he wasnt the same after that?

I was at the game, we played fairly ok, couldve been better. We simply lost the ball wayyy too much and couldn't find a rhythm. Though we did have a couple good cracks at goal. Panama were attacking us a lot more in the 2nd half. We looked tired going into the later part of the game. Take in the experience fellas and build on it.

Of course I do. It bothers me how we have good players out there that we let fall through the cracks. I hope he does well with the US and doesn't end up capped once just to prevent T&T from getting him.

Is it I don't know the off-side rules. Yesterday Aubameyang scored a goal, and I swore he was a mile off-side. Then today Spurs got 2 penalties. Kane missed the first. But they look kind of soft. No disrespect to the Spurs fans.

That game real piss me off boy. There's even a clip showing the linesman pumping his fist. Something was wrong with this game. I do admit Liverpool didn't do as well the 2nd half but should've taken the 3 points hands down. I had respect for Tottenham before, not anymore.
