Football / Collin Samuel Released from Toronto FC
« on: April 11, 2008, 02:28:36 PM »
I am very disappointed to see him get released. I thought he had a lot of potential to contribute this year despite what people in Toronto claim. I’ve seen most of TFC games since they started and to be honest, no one on the team, except for Edu, Wynn and Brenen looked like class players, so I can’t understand why the fans target him only.

He hasn’t played great football to be honest, and certainly hasn’t stood out on a team that flat out sucks, but I think he has more potential to contribute than any of the other strikers on the team.

Any thoughts on where he might end up. Scotland maybe?

Football / The next big star out of TnT

For those of you fortunate enough to take in the TnT under 17 team at the world cup, are there any Dwight Yorkes out there? Any of these players stand out talent wise? Could we see any of them being picked up by foreign clubs after the tournament? What does our future look like?

I can’t see any of the games this time around but I remember when I was young and Dwight played in the under 17 (I believe it was under 17) world cup everyone knew he was going to be a professional playing at a high level. Back then, although Trinidad didn’t do too well in the tournament, Dwight stood out as an outstanding talent and look where he ended up. Do you guys see any Dwights in this tournament? I believe Kenwyne Jones was spotted at a youth tournament in Trinidad as well years ago, again, look at where he is heading. I guess I’m just curious to know if any players caught your attention during this tournament.     


Football / Defenders Wanted
« on: August 01, 2006, 09:58:13 AM »
Good Day Guys,

Is it me or is our defensive looking a bit old these days? Now there is nothing wrong with our players aging as they are bound to age with time, but my real question is who do we have to replace them? Do we have youthful defenders that can replace guys like Andrews, Lawrence, Sancho, John and even Gray? Will we be able to find Mid - High caliber defenders in our pro league?

No one ever talks about the next young defender who will hold down the back line for T&T? We have young talented strikers for days and even our midfield has some depth and youthful talent but what about defense. Where will we find the strength of Andrews, tackling of Sancho, Aerial skills of Lawrence, who will run the line like Avery or be as tenacious as Cyd?  Sure we could throw some young defenders in the line up and say we have youth but more importantly, do we have talent, young defenders that are good enough to represent us on the international stage?

With all the talk about 2010 and looking to the future, all I here is which strikers will emerge as the starters for us and who running the midfield, but today my question is who the heck will defend? Can we enthusiastically look forward to Derek King (no disrespect intended), Anton Pierre and Marlon Rojas to revitalize our back line? Is Keno Thomas ever going to be given a chance, does Jlloyd Samuel qualify? Are we in trouble where our defense is concerned?

I don’t see very many successors for our present backline but I have been wrong before. If they are out there then who are they and when will we have a look at them?

What do you guys think?

Football / Kenwyne Jones
« on: July 28, 2006, 10:11:20 AM »
You know guys, I have always been disappointed with what Kenwyne Jones has been developed into since he moved to England. Kenwyne was a utility player playing right back for T&T before he went to England and all of a sudden he became an out and out striker. Am I the only one who sees his conversion to a striker as a real set back to his career?

Personally, I think Kenwyne should have been developed into a defensive midfielder or a central defender. After watching many Southampton games as well as all his games for T&T, I can’t say he has ever ever ever looked like a dangerous striker who is likely to punish a careless defense. In my humble opinion, Kenwyne Jones is better off as a utility player who primarily plays as a defensive midfielder.

My point really is that Jones is still one of our most talented footballers who had/has enormous potential to contribute to Trinidad’s football, but rotting on the bench for a championship team in England doesn’t do his talent and potential justice.  Playing a position that he isn’t most suited for while competing against players who are natural strikers and always going to get a run before him just makes me cringe every weekend.

What do you guys think?
