Real Madrid juniors boasting major star names
tribalfootball.com - March 17, 2008

Real Madrid management are quietly pleased with the progress of three of their young starlets.
The son of Zinedine Zidane, Enzo, named after Uruguayan great Enzo Francescoli, is impressing at Real. As is the son of AC Milan and former Real striker Ronaldo, Ron, who plays in the same junior team as Enzo.

Michael Laudrup, the Getafe coach, also has one of his sons coming through Real's youth system.

"I'm pleased, he's doing very well and enjoying it there," said Laudrup last week.


I mean tribal is a madsite eh but say what....Dem youth men in kick no setta ball yet and they done on the internet...I wonder if David Beckham side go jump in and make it galactico squad all over again... ;D

Real Madrid coaches excited by Zidane Jr potential
tribalfooball.com - June 24, 2007

Real Madrid have their long-term successor for Zinedine Zidane - his son, Enzo.
Enzo Alan Zidane is playing for and captains Real's junior team and scored his first goal yesterday. The 12 year-old has been part of Real's junior setup since 2001 and his progress has coaching staff excited about his prospects.

To keep the spotlight away from the youngster, Zidane is registered as Enzo Alan Martinez by Real, but comparisons are easily made with Enzo playing as a natural No10 and captaining his current team.

Zizou named his son Enzo after Uruguayan great Enzo Francescoli


 That is a huge shoes to put on yes...But next 10 years God spare who knows

Arsenal go for Ajax pair Babel, Huntelaar
tribalfooball.com - June 23, 2007

Arsenal are planning a double-raid on Ajax for attacking pair Ryan Babel and Klaas Jan Huntelaar.
The News of the World says Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will go for both Holland internationals should he fail to bring Bolton striker Nicolas Anelka back to the club.

A source close to the Arsenal boss said: "If he doesn't get Anelka then he will go for Jan Huntelaar - and Babel is also a possibility

I am not an Arsenal fan but I hope they get Ryan Babel. He plays very similar to Henry and may be even more skilful at his age than Henry was. Plays from the left just like Henry, with speed and skill...Hopefully for football sake Wenger stay and they buy Huntelaar and Babel. If they add another 10 million with what they make off Henry they should get those two players...Arsenal didn't do to bad last year without Henry. They just need consistent goal-hound...Abedayor will get there....Man U and Chelsea wouldn't have so easy....Well Man U because I feel Chelsea will waltz through the EPL next year and end up with 90 something points again...But next 3 years Arsenal could well be the top team again

Football / Martins Escapes from Gunshots

Newcastle's Martins escapes attack by gunmen

LONDON, June 20 (Reuters) - Newcastle United striker Obafemi Martins said he narrowly escaped death or serious injury after being shot at while driving in Lagos.

The Nigeria international escaped unhurt but a friend was injured after masked gunmen sprayed his Mercedes with bullets.

'They shot indiscriminately and tried to kill all the occupants of the car. They weren't there to rob me but to finish me off,' the 22-year-old former Inter Milan player said in Wednesday's Sun newspaper.

'I thought I was going to die. They executed it like professional hired assassins. It was hell.

'I was dead in my heart and soul. It all happened like something in the movies.'

According to the report, the incident happened near a petrol station in the Nigerian city where Martins grew up and still owns an apartment.

'How I managed to escape is still shocking and unbelievable,' added the player who scored 11 league goals in his first season at St James Park. 'Maybe someone up there loves me more than I could imagine.'

Martins said he would be reluctant to return to Nigeria for international duty.

'I don't feel safe in Lagos any more,' he said. 'When the situation gets out of control I don't think coming home is something I can even contemplate.'


I find this real sad

Football / For The Record (Warning may be offensive)
« on: June 06, 2007, 09:41:30 AM »
For the Record I am NOT Jack Warner fan…..Ponnoxx

The man has done plenty of wrong to our Football, but he also has done things that helped us. I do not agree with the blacklist but I think is time for a change. Let us examine the blacklist properly and see if there can be a reason why players were left out. Marco Van Basten has made a similar move with Holland(even though their younger players play at a high level too) with some decent and reasonable results.

Avery John – 31- always gave 110% but at 31 may not have the legs to keep up. He was never the best reader of the game so his experience might not be needed.

Anthony Wolfe – 23- Player with good feet and pace but is an inconsistent goalscorer and not the most crafty although skilful.

Atiba Charles – 29- Rugged player that gave his all on the field. Passing always lacked and at 29 doesn’t seem that it would improve.

Aurtis Whitley – 30- Whitley is one of the best players in the PFL but has not reproduced his pre-World Cup 2006 form and at 30 years it would be better to groom someone else. He even went quite Vietnam and get send back!!

Brent Sancho – 30-Did extremely well in World Cup 2006. A hard working player who has mediocre footwork. Sometimes he could let his dedication get in the way of getting the job done properly.

Christopher Birchall - 23 – A welcomed addition to the squad. A great ball winner and probably the best striker of the ball in the National Pool, Chris is definitely one for the future. Lacks vision and footwork and has not been playing regularly enough to warrant the fees to be called back home.

Collin Samuel – 25- Fast winger, strong on the ball and decent passer. His crosses are inconsistent and lacks defensive capabilities but would be a decent addition to any squad as he could play both wings.

Cornell Glen – 25- Blisteringly Fast player with decent ball control. Capable of scoring great goals but not consistent.

Cyd Gray – 33- Hard working defender who can win tackles and air challenges. Lacks composure and at 33 would not be learning soon.

Evans Wise – 33- Great dribbler. Crosses are very inconsistent and does not produce enough goalscoring opportunities when he is on the pitch

Ian Cox – 36- Laborer and too old

Kelvin Jack – 31- Great on collecting crosses and very aggressive. Sometimes can be slow at reacting to certain situations.

Kenwyne Jones – 22- Great Talent, strong, fast, skilful and could score goals. He is a bit inconsistent in front of goal and scores in clusters rather than regularly but has done well this season and may need some rest.
Marvin Andrews – 31- Good at aerial balls. Lacks in footwork and tackle winning and is too old to learn.

Shaka Hislop – 38- Great all round keeper. He is done well throughout his career, even improving his distribution which was his weakest attribute. Retired

Stern John – 30- Proven goal scorer and excellent and holding up the ball. Teams tend to need more movement than he offers. The season has been long and he may need some rest. Ronaldo for Brazil is receiving similar treatment and he has been Brazil’s talisman for a decade now.

The TTFF is definitely too reliant on Jack Warner financially and should be able to accommodate players without his help which is not the case. Fielding a local contingent might be the answer to this dependence on Warner for some simple but practical reasons.  (1) TTFF more accountable for their players (2) The players are not high profile (as yet) so they are easier to manage (3) Coach Wim Rijsbergen gets more time to work with players and monitor them (even in a league like PFL) (4) It could become more of a team than mixing  locals with foreigners (5) the Local players are generally younger .
The accomplished players fighting over money can be viewed as petty because there are footballers locally based who would be dying to get their break (and sometimes  have just as much talent but never got their break). This may be the TTFF's way of cutting their financial ties with Jack Warner (MAYBE) and becoming more self-dependent , because managing a local team would cost cheaper in terms of transport, payment, club conflict resolution and residence. It would allow them to use the money generated from the World Cup to put in place serious infrastructure for Football programs in T&T (from junior to senior). For the 30 year olds who fighting for the money it might just be a new car or house. Blacklisting may even be none existent and just a figment of the players’ imagination. If it is in effect then it might not have been the best way to deal with the situation, but the way the aforementioned “blacklisted players” handled things may not have been most ideal either. My mother always said “two wrongs don’t make a right. ” Somebody has to back down. Trinidad and Tobago’s Football versus a clique of sixteen disgruntled players as a showdown looms ahead. Very pleasing to witness was the formation of Football Players Association of Trinidad and Tobago (FPATT) which could look over the needs of players both foreign and local. The players should be commended for such foresight.

Football / Rosicky Knows How to Have a Good Time
« on: March 29, 2007, 06:18:48 AM »
Rosicky Not Picky

Arsenal star Tomas Rosicky and five of his Czech Republic team-mates landed the whole squad a £25,000 fine from the Czech FA after spending a night in a hotel with six prostitutes :beermug: :beermug: :beermug::beermug:

It was revealed on Monday that the players had been fined after indulging in a wild party following the team's 2-1 defeat to Germany in a Euro 2008 qualifier. But the full extent of the revelry has only just emerged.

A female Czech journalist broke the story after she had visited the hotel room herself as an autograph hunter. Players 'drank and hugged prostitutes' while she spoke to Jan Polak at the room door.

Rosicky, along with Martin Jiranek, Tomas Ujfalusi, Polak and Marek Cech, managed to get the girls into their hotel by telling team officials that the girls were 'autograph hunters'. They also claimed they had been celebrating Ujfalusi's birthday.

Rosicky apologised for his actions at a press conference. He said: 'We have been correctly punished. We are very sorry.' However, he said he had a 'clear conscience' :angel: when asked about the presence of the prostitutes.

His girlfriend, Radka Kocurova, may have a few additional questions. She said: said: 'I have read what was in the papers. All I will say is no comment.' Ujfalusi, Cech and Polak are actually married.

'Because the celebration was conducted in an inappropriate way, which does not fall in line with the behaviour of Czech Republic national team members, the whole team was punished by a one-million-crown fine,' the Czech FA said in a statement.

Coach Karel Brueckner was quoted by news agency CTK as saying it was the worst disciplinary offence he had experienced and that it briefly made him consider resigning.

Tabloid daily Sip reported on Monday that the six players had held a party in a room at the Praha hotel until at least 5.30am. The players, who will share the cost of the fine among the whole team, admitted having a late party.

The Czechs lost 2-1 to Germany on Saturday after a weak performance that sparked wide criticism of the team and Brueckner.


Football / Ronaldo Still Fast?
« on: March 27, 2007, 08:35:21 PM »
Ronaldo fastest player in Milan training camp

MILAN, Italy (AP) - Ronaldo seems to be regaining his fitness.

Often criticized for being overweight at Real Madrid, the Brazil striker was the fastest player in 30-meter drills Tuesday at AC Milan's training camp.

Ronaldo covered the short distance in 4.01 seconds, according to Milan's Web site, beating teammates Filippo Inzaghi and Serginho.

Several Milan players were away with their national teams. Ronaldo was not named to Brazil's team for friendlies with Chile - which Brazil won 4-0 - and Ghana.

Milan has often set Ronaldo aside to work on his fitness since transferring from Real Madrid in January.

Ronaldo will likely be the focus of Milan's attack for Saturday's Serie A match against AS Roma since he cannot play in the Champions League quarterfinals against Bayern Munich three days later.

UEFA rules prohibit players from appearing for two different clubs in the Champions League in the same season.

Football / EPL Manager joke

Mourinho, Wenger, and Ferguson die in an air crash. When they arrive at the gates of heaven God asks Wenger:
"So my son what is important in football and life?"
"Skills, communication, and team work. That's what is important," answers the Frenchman.
God: "I like what you say my son. Come and sit at my left side."
And then God asked: "So Ferguson, what is important in football and life?"
Ferguson replies, "Everybody has to listen to the words and the commands of the master. Then work. Work hard and make the right choices."
God: "I like your words my son. Come and sit at my right side."
Then God notices that Mourinho is looking very indignant and upset.
"What is bothering you my son?" asks God.
"You are sitting in my chair," said Mourinho

Football / Why Wim doesn't blame Wim?
« on: February 11, 2007, 11:02:17 AM »
 All Wim does do is blame when he lose...Why not blame himself? He never wrong...He formation, tactics and selection is the best in the world yet still we lose to Haiti and Costa Rica...If he so World Class, why USA not begging him to coach them? They going with an American when Wim could easily be hired? Maybe he is not as good a coach as his mouth tells us ...maybe he can't get a system that suits us and makes us win because he is a lazy coach...maybe he doesn't work hard  enough...Wim should go...Mr. Critic...should ride out if he can't stand our football...He basically saying I can't stand your football or your country because I am never there but I love your money...Thanks T&T

Cassano, Diarra Real Madrid futures in doubt
tribalfooball.com - December 26, 2006

The futures at Real Madrid of Antonio Cassano and Mahamadou Diarra are in serious doubt.
The Real duo haven't seen action since being caught on French television criticising coach Fabio Capello and more action is expected in the coming weeks.

Cassano is already being touted to Italian clubs, with the former Roma man having no future at the Santiago Bernabeu. AS says the striker is also becoming more and more isolated inside the Real dressing room.

Diarra, meanwhile, is also in a difficult position. Once regarded as a virtual first-choice the Mali ace could be set for an extended spell on the sidelines as Capello uses new signing Fernando Gago as his first-choice holding midfielder after Spain's winter recess.

Ronaldo int say anything :rotfl:

Football / T&T chances looking Better and Better to Me !
« on: April 10, 2006, 04:35:12 AM »
 Some people say that T&T chances of beating England and Sweden are impossible. I beg to differ. The English camp has been hit countless times for all soughts of fiascos....1) The Sven Allegation 2) The Ashely Cole and Sole Campbell rumour 3) Beckham's inability to inspire Real Madrid to a title  4) Micheal Owen Injury 5) Recent dip in form of Steven Gerrard 6) Gambling allegations against some of the players namely WAYNE ROONEY http://soccernet.espn.go.com/news/story?id=364377&cc=5901
   Sweden, on the other hand has a less torrid time of avoiding media frenzies such as England. However, their two deadliest players seem to pose less of a threat than a baby in a cradle. Zlatan Ibrahimavich and Henrik Larsson. One is ready to retire and lost some of his sharpness and the other is being booed by his own club supporters. Larsson is the bigger threat of the two for me. Zlatan is in a psycological hole right now, and with less than 6 games left in Serie A, you would have to say that he cannot redeem himself in the goal scoring realm(because this could only happen if his name was Ronaldo ;D). Although Juventus will retain the title it is because mostly from the efforts of Trezeget, Del Pero, Emerson,Abbiati  and a solid back line. USA has alot to worry about. Luca Toni is a goal machine, Del Pero seems to be enjoying football again, Totti was extremely influential before is his injury and could return before the World Cup, Inzahgi seems to be scoring important goals, Pirlo is in form, Di Natali is having a wonderful season etc. Czech Republic is no push-over ::)
    If Beenhakker can inspire good performances over the next two friendlies then I think we have a solid chance of going to the second round ;D ....Plus Pele say that England going to win World Cup 2006 but we all know when Pele say something the OPPOSITE will happen...Some may differ....Talk your mind.....Go T&T

 I think favouritism is destroying our football at all levels...I don't know if it is in our culture but it is a burden on Football in T&T...I for one have always been a stern believer in rewarding hard work...I have also fell victim this Favouritism on two clear occasions in my short life and I know how it could restrict progress and confidence to a footballer...It stops hard-working players(who can play :D) from being committed...I not saying to allow a man that can't play but works hard a spot...There are effective players being left out all the time because the another person knows someone and this is not right....There is alot of politics in football and it should be cut out and how do should it be cut out ?
