I realize that there are a few TT movies on Youtube but certainly not all. I can't find them on Torrents and as I live abroad really hard to go a cinema in the few countries that they are in.

Anywhere on the net I can find these movies, any kind of stream available?

« on: October 31, 2019, 12:03:07 PM »
Anybody who old (Palos, TM ;-)) help me out here.

Anbody here was at that game and remembers. I think Slates and Fishs migt be able to chip in.

Football / Ian Clauzel interview
« on: October 26, 2019, 11:46:55 AM »

Ian Clauzel has agreed to do an interview with me.

I think the former Dread Dribbler of Mucurapo has a story to tell and I am looking forward to the interview.

I will be honest and tell you that I was a youngster in the late 70s and never saw him play. But even people who did not follow football in those days knew the name Clauzel.

If you have any memories of him or questions for him please say. I will do my best to put forward your questions.

Football / Richard Chinapoo, "I took pride in punishing a Goalkeeper."

Football / Ronnie Simmons, "I was disenchanted with TT football
« on: September 08, 2018, 10:09:10 PM »

The 1981 CFL (College’s Football League) produced a handful of stars that many thought would go on to have a bright future for the rest of that decade.

In addition, to the already established Garh Pollonais, the Captain of St. Augustine SC, there were Dexter Skeene, David Nakhid and Barry Henderson (St. Mary’s College), Dexter Sandy and Lester Charles (Queen’s Royal College) and Ronald Simmons (Fatima).

Simmons captured the imagination of all who saw him; a sweeper who was strong in the air, could run from end to end, score goals and had a magnificent clearance, he was like a man amongst men. Only 17 years old, he was fast tracked on to the Senior team just a few months later.

Not surprisingly, the following year, he was Vice Captain of the National Youth Team under Pollonais and awarded a full scholarship to Howard University.

Post Howard, he won the US Cup with Club Espana and the Washington Diplomats giving  him the chance to play in the Concacaf Club Championships.

In an era of no internet, many local fans were unaware of his accomplishments and even more confused at his continuous absence from national training sessions. However, whilst locals seemed ignorant of his efforts, US coaches and fans were reveling in his ability and success.

Football / Bias aganst College players
« on: September 07, 2018, 10:25:46 PM »
Mods merge this if you need to.

I was speaking recently to people such as Ronnie Simmons, Graeme Rodriguez and Dexter Skeene. And they were adamant that during their time in the 80s and early 90s there was a bias against College players.

Simmons was more direct and said race was involved.

Although I agree with them. I am of the opinion that such is not the case today.
Bateau went to Fatima and I seem to see College grads getting their chance to train or play for the national team.

 I am from abroad but was curious to know what the local based think.
