That's a story about how good intentions can get blown out of proportion. :rotfl:

There are three sports field at the barracks. There is a football/cricket field inside the compound. And there is the field on Long Circular Rd near what used to be PSA. Which is it? Then there is the hockey field on Western Main Rd and Long Circular. Do they still play hockey there?

Off and on when it's maintained.
Prior to the dry season it wasin pretty good condition.
and the work began on the main field and i guess the hockey field wasnt a priority. It was in pretty bad shape pre-covid

Before that the PFL team was training there as well

Hockey and Rugby get the real shaft in TT. You mean to say they get set aside 2 grounds in the Savannah for  Rugby. I mean fenced around with stands and changing room. Can they not put a astro turf field for the hockey. Almost all the hockey teams in the north are in or around POS.
As far as I remember, President's ground in St Anns where Rangers trained and played was always a main ruby field as well.

Wonderful article by Colin murray and one of the very very few people in sports who actually touched on the meat of the matter, I just wish we had more like him in that integrity starved nation, especially with those mindless vultures who hang around sports and is so very void of good ideas.

 I longed for the day when the corona virus and this dispute is finally behind us and we all could exhale and enjoy the simple things in life again, like watching our football in caring hands for the second time in our history, first with timkee god rest his soul, and now william wallace.

Lately, when I see an article from the Guardian, I just keep going as I notice they seem to be in FIFA's pocket. But because of your comments I read Murray's article. I guess I need to pay attention to the authors a bit more and not just the partisan papers.

Couldn't agree with you more. Refreshing to see the few who care about truth and righteousness.

Murray is typically a discerning commentator.

Iíll go as far as to say that when the smoke is cleared on this one, there would be a lot of friends who will find themselves on the opposite side of the issue, the informed vs the random talkers and friends of the fat boss.

That's it right there. I've had a few conversations with fellow countrymen who's been involved in the sport for years and surprised to hear there take on this. I've been running out of energy trying to convince them otherwise.

To the President of ttfa Mr. William Wallace and your legitimately elected team , it is with pride as a Trinbagonian i salute you  for the principled and firm stance taken to proceed with your case to (Cas ) , inspite  of all the naysayers as well as the doubters / defectors . It is the right thing to do, the pursuit of justice .

Based on the information the TTFA can present a strong case. I hope this can draw some attention globally so FIFA can be exposed even if they decide to suspend us.

Very informative video between Lasana and Fazeer, the CFU nations really need to come together in unified support.

10
Whatever we do, we should all do it together...strength in numbers. Let's decide what our plan of action should be.

12
We need to stand up against fifa guys. Seriously. Letís petition. Iím sure the TTFA can file an injunction against FIFA whilst appealing this. There has to be some resolve, the measure theyíre taking is pretty drastic. IF this conspiracy is true, then the courts can settle this. The present admin was democratically elected.

What?? We a soppy nation that just going and sit down like a bobolee and take manners jussso...this isnít right guys.
That's how I feel. We should challenge this! The new admin have only been in office for just over 3 months. If things didn't improve over 2 years then I can justify what FIFA's doing.

https://wired868.com/2020/03/17/fifa-appoints-normalisation-committee-in-tt-wallace-and-vps-removed-after-three-months/

Fifa president Gianni Infantino and Concacaf president Victor Montagliani were both supported by John-Williams en route to office and were regular visitors to Trinidad over the past four years.

At a press conference two weeks ago, Wallace revealed that Montagliani admitted to attempting to help John-Williams win the last TTFA election by writing Nike to poke holes in a pre-election promise of Wallace.

Montaglianiís infamous Nike letter failed to sway voters who elected Wallace as president on 24 November 2019. But now Fifa and Concacaf have removed him anyway

Got my question answered here...this reeks of corruption

The decision follows the recent FIFA/Concacaf fact-finding mission to Trinidad and Tobago to assess, together with an independent auditor, the financial situation of TTFA.
How recent did this start? We know someone is frien with de FIFA president....

Football / Re: Terry Fenwick Thread.
« on: March 12, 2020, 11:11:33 AM »
Kei≠th Look Loy and Terry Fenwick both have valid points/reason.

Fenwick wants him alone to contact foreign players because he is the head coach but Look Loy decided to contact a couple (Moore & Deleon) because he knows their father very well and did so without letting Fenwick know. But his intentions were good.

Richard Piper apparently is dragging his feet as far as passport goes.

Noah Powder should have a passport because he played for T&T at youth level, unless it expired.

Hope they patch things up and get along with business because they started off very good.

Let everyone do their jobs they were hired for and if for some reason they need help, then of course you seek it from the other members.

They have to work as a team and respect each other position.
Roles should be identified but I think we should work with our strengths and senior members of the committee should be in a position to encourage foreign internationals players to pursue a passport if they have a connection with them or their family.

It's a matter of making them eligible for selection and widening our player pool. Then it's up to the coaching staff to select who they want based on game(s) and player performance. All players should know that they're not guaranteed selection just because they possess a T&T passport.

I do think everything should be transparent and it don't have to be the coaches job to solely contact foreign internationals.

Football / Re: TTFA to drop Soca Warriors name
« on: March 06, 2020, 11:20:05 AM »
Melville coined the nickname Soca Warriors, in 1998, during a senior menís match between TT and El Salvador in USA. The name took on a life of its own with people all over the world calling the team Soca Warriors as compared to TT.

I still contend that this is NOT true. The Soca Warrior was the name of a 1989 album by Swallow.

Look how you reach to mash up de dance and disturb the peace.  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

*Paging Tallman*...new attorney and general to represent the TTFA.

I was also thing how is he so certain that name wasn't used before? Maybe Swallow can sue Selwyn now :devil:

We waiting till de day.
Then we go play Jabloteh.
And feel we they.
And say de squad looking ok.

Them men playing like they eating crix.
And then they want to hit Panama six.
They play with no heart.
And then they bawling fans doh give ah fart.

Man playing like they bun.
Coach still bawling he's number one.
De striker who does only fall down.
He first name starts with S & last name is John.
He lucky he get to play.
And he swear he they.
And how Colombia play.
Because he only crying fair play.
Steups,,, anyway...

It so funny.
Latapy only want money.
He bawl he cah play.
But playing for Falkirk anyway.

Leo say Nakhid is a phenomenon.
Yet, he only running back Lebanon.
He only have mouth.
Look Nakhid is now a big time scout.
And only see 2 of we opponent.
And then bawling everything permanent.

Last May, Leo run in de UK.
To spy on we players and then say they ok.
But when he meet later that May.
He didn't know was ah different vibes down they.

Then we went Gold Cup.
And get ah shake up.
And still eh wake up.
Because de players walking like Jacob.

They fail to say.
The lack of preparation didn't go their way.
Because de players look like they kill-ka-tay.
And de coach bawiling, Yorke didn't play.

They change they name to Warriors.
Man digging horras.
Because they only getting manners.
And they not representing they alias.

They bawling dont get we expections to high.
But we cant figure out, why ?
Now it is clear to see.
We paying a man a million dollars to be.
De coach for T&T.

We waste a whole month.
De TTFF only pulling stunt.
One man have to pay.

And Oliver Camps only playing whe whe.

By de way, de chouras could say:

De Warriors Crying....

Too bad for Sturridge, I sure hope he learns from this. I didn't know he left Liverpool but I wonder why he didn't stay in the premier league,  I'll be surprised if other clubs didn't want him. I was thought he was a good forward just Liverpool might've been too loaded for him right now.

Congrats on the new deal. I never paid much attention to that Nike deal because I know nothing is never set until you sign the dotted line regardless of what promises were made.

« on: February 25, 2020, 09:34:07 AM »
Would make sense if they'd take a pay cut - they'd make a lot of money off that combo and might inspire a generation in the US.
Players like Mess and Ronaldo should never have to take a pay cut, they should be paid what they're worth, they're box office players.

Watching all these Kobe stories before his memorial today have me thinking (Laker bias aside), has there been an athlete to have such an impactful legacy worldwide after they've passed away like the way Kobe did? I'm actually surprised to see how many people were fans of his, I thought he had more haters. It's funny to see how many of them are still grieving and are still in shock up to this day, I thought it was just me.
