Ottley lone TTSL presidential contender as Morris pulls out
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian)


Incumbent T&T Super League president Clayton Morris will not seek re-election when the Super League AGM and Election of Officers take place on September 19.

Morris, a former defender and captain for the now infamous 'Strike Squad' football team of 1989, said he wants to continue in his role as a coach as football has always been his profession and passion. Morris' intention to not contest the election means that Ryan Ottley, the Defence Force manager, who Guardian Media Sports was told on Monday will be seeking the leadership position of the Super League, could be the lone candidate, come September 19.

According to Morris: "As I have already stated I'm not interested in running for the T&TSL presidency, and as coach I will not be contesting if and when the election is called. I was always considering taking up the president's role. It was always a struggle for me mentally because having to carry out my duty as a coach at the University of T&T, for which football is my passion.

It is my profession, so it was always a challenge or a struggle in taking up the presidential position, but then when I was told to carry on for just eight months, I said I would give it a try. As a strong believer in the Almighty, I saw it where God wanted me to step into the position to bring that calm and tranquillity that we have now in the Super League."

Morris was elected in the midst of a tense environment on November 29 last year, in which an agreement had to be reached unanimously among the clubs, to use a virtual platform for elections, for the first time in the Super League's history due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

He won the position unopposed after his lone challenger Jameson Rigues, a vice president of the T&TSL, pulled out at the very last moment. At that election, only nine of the expected 24 members voted.

Ottley's Defence Force is one of seven clubs that were suspended by the Super League back in 2018 for either being non-compliant, or for non-payment of registration fees to play in the League under then President Keith Look Loy. Some clubs that did not pay registration fees that year (2018), also suffered a further suspension in 2019, for not playing in a TTSL tournament for two consecutive years.

Following the AGM that preceded the election last year, a decision was taken for the seven suspended clubs- Defence Force, Central 500 FC, Harlem Strikers FC, Marabella FCC, 1976 Phoenix, WASA FC and the Youth Stars to get their house in order with regards to becoming compliant within a six-month period before they can be given voting rights at the election.

Morris said only the Army Coast-Guard Combination team followed instructions and has become compliant. Tobago team 1976 Phoenix began the process to become compliant but did not complete it.

Morris said the teams were given sufficient time to become compliant. They were given until June this year to fix all documentation concerning becoming a voting member again, and if they have not done so then they will not vote.

Morris was satisfied with his performance despite the COVID-19 pandemic that threatened to make his tenure useless. He said his executive was able to achieve a lot administratively, saying: "Most of the meetings we had, they took the form of discussions, whereas, with arguments, you want to find out who's right. With discussions, you find out what is right, and that has trickled down to the membership.

That kind of fighting in the Super League is no more. For the AGM you would normally have an activity report at which you would have a breakdown of the games played etc, but this time around, we have activities which we were able to accomplish administratively from the Board level. I was able to meet with the members via telephone to bring back communication."

Is this another "Fergie" disciple?

Field of Dreams host Steve David and Unified Football Coaches of Trinidad and Tobago (UFCTT) Interim President Jefferson George discuss the appointment of the coaching staff of the Trinidad and Tobago Women's Senior Team.

Interesting.

Although, imo this show needs a different host.
It's painful to follow for a full show.
I'm not questioning Steve David's passion. The idea of the show is a good one, but it seems put together very haphazardly

Usually he doesn't seem very informed on topics and it stood out quite a bit on this one.
Throwing the race card in the manner in which he did it was a bit careless as well unfortunately...

kenwin saying the very same thing i've been saying for years on end. these administrators have done nothing for football in 30 years since we lose out on italy, and all they have done ever since is restart a process of going to as many world cups  from U15 to senior both men and womens without planning ahead years in advance and hoping for miracles .

they have created no youth development programs, no financial and marketing strategy, no adequate sponsorship drive, no nothing, just quick fix and vaps applying plasters to chop wounds but no surgery.

he seemed to bring across some good pts, before i was able to check out the full clip as it was taken down

But an aspect that is needed (unless he touched on it later in the clip) is a need for a functioning Player's Assoc.
guys like Kenywne with this much first hand experience in the game can be influential in getting it up and running

TTFA on the search for Women's technical staff.
T&T Guardian Reports.


Invitations to select the Technical Staff of the T&T Women's team are out. The positions will all be filled by local personnel.

All local coaches interested in filling the positions of Assistant Coach, Equipment Manager, Goalkeeper Coach and Team Manager are being asked to apply, having been given the assurance that there will be fairness and transparency in the process.  :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Head coach James Thomas of Wales was chosen after a rigorous process that lasted approximately three months, but with limited resources available to the FIFA-installed Normalisation Committee, it will require more than qualifications to fill the positions listed above, as the candidates chosen as the front-runners for each position, will also have to say yay or nay to the amounts being offered by the normalisation committee.

Recently the normalisation committee had to pull back on the appointments of Richard Hood and Dernelle Mascall as the assistant coaches of the team, and Kelvin Jack as the goalkeeper coach, following concerns that no advertisements for the positions were done, thereby not giving other local coaches a fair chance at the job.

Hood, took the T&T Under-20 Women's team to the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Under-20 Championship in the Dominican Republic in 2020 and could be unchallenged for the position if all is considered. But yesterday he told Guardian Media Sports that he is unsure if he would be applying, saying he will have to make up his mind. Mascall, in the meantime, could not be reached for comment.

Kenrick Hoyte, the interim president of the Women's Football League (WoLF) became the listening ear for many disgruntled WoLF coaches, all singing the same song, that they were not even given the opportunity to apply for the jobs on offer.

The issue was then picked up by the Unified Football Coaches of T&T, through its then Public Relations Officer, national men's coach Angus Eve who said the UFCT&T had sided with the WoLF and called for transparency and fairness in the selection process.

This is nonsense. Sheer nonsense.

The argument advanced by Hoyte is emotionally seductive but not all-encompassing. I get that it serves the emerging and perceived interests of the UFCTT, but this "solution" is horrendous.

Whose idea and decision was it to revisit the decision? Wow! Deficient and lacking. Attempting to inject justice into a process or attempting to resolve/repair/negotiate a procedural deficiency by injecting an injustice into a process does not achieve justice.

And by the way, it would be interesting to see how the 'local coaches only' stands up to a challenge under these circumstances. Restricted to Trinbagonian coaches? Yes. Restricted to citizens of Trinidad and Tobago? Yes. Restricted to local coaches? You all have lost your damn minds.

As an aside, out of curiosity, could someone explain why United Football Coaches of Trinidad and Tobago was chosen as the name ... as opposed to say, Football Coaches Association of Trinidad and Tobago?

May be the UFCTT should be exercised by the amounts on offer for yay or nay. The NC should be tending to yay and respect. I am confident that Coach Thomas wasn't placed in a yay or nay headlock.

I believe there already was a name/group simialr to the one you suggested, just that it's not a functioning body

So they had to come up with an alternative

From the minute I saw the headlines I knew right away whom the article came from. In all honesty though does this journalist feller ever has any good positive news to share? It is extremely rare that this bloke has anything refreshing and brimming with optimism to inspire the public, in fact 95% of the times his content is all about bacchanal confusion and a mark to buss. I hope that these jokers in TT don’t isolate this lad, especially if he has something good to offer.

Could almost say the same for Wired's content

it's just that there are VERY few ppl who give insight into the situation surrounding the national program and the administration ongoings as well
so we forced to take it with a bag of salt if we have any real interest in the sport.

Aye Warriors,

totally off topic from the current football drama going on maybe but I'm curious of some "talk" I heard a while back that just came back up.

The Larry Gomes Stadium in Arima has a practice field -just outside the stadium's compound.
I've heard that it's probably one of, if not the worst of the lot and it's become hopeless at this point.

The talk was that the community basically took it over in a sense.
The gate isn't secured and the fence had holes in it, so any and everybody could have go and take a sweat on it

Is this remotely true???

He went to experience the camp and was a guest along with about 10 others.

‘Godfather’ Gary supporting Soca Warriors
By Ian Prescott (T&T Express)


POLICE COMMISSIONER Gary Griffih has been a “godfather” to the Trinidad and Tobago senior men’s national football team in the absence of support from the FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee and a non-functional T&T Football Association (TTFA).

T&T face both 2022 FIFA World Cup and 2021 Concacaf Gold Cup qualifiers in the coming months. However, sources indicate that without Griffith’s help, the team might have had to abandon both qualifying series.

Griffith has provided training facilities and meals, and has even paid for recent Covid-19 tests for the team, in the absence of FIFA’s Normalisation Committee, which is as broke as the almost insolvent TTFA itself, and constantly awaiting occasional funding from football’s world governing body.

Occurrences off the field have also begun to shroud what is happening on the field. Sources indicate that promises to pay monthly salaries of coaches at the end of May will likely not materialise now, along with players’ stipends for international service.

The players themselves have received multiple promises which have often come up short, and there is said to be very little confidence in what is promised to them by the FIFA committee, chaired by local businessman Robert Hadad.

One thing that is happening with the team is that through the police service and national security contacts, Griffith has been able to expedite the process of securing passports for some of the foreign-born footballers that national coach Terry Fenwick is interested in. By virtue of ancestral ties, these players are eligible to represent T&T at next month’s Concacaf zone World Cup qualifiers against Bahamas and St Kitts & Nevis.

Former England defender Fenwick had announced plans to further strengthen his squad after March qualifiers which saw the Soca Warriors beat Guyana 3-0 and draw 1-1 with Puerto Rico.

Recently, Shamfa Cudjoe, Minister of Sport and Community Development, confirmed that Government departments had supported the TTTFA’s objective of getting passports for qualified foreign-born players.

“All the players that we have been pursuing, that TTFA have been pursuing, we have been able to get passports for those players,” Minister of Sport and Community Development Shamfa Cudjoe stated on a recent I-95 radio interview.

“As they continue to talk to more and get more on board, then the Government stand ready to continue to support and do the processing so those players will get their passports. But I know that the ones that we have pursued so far have been able to get their passports. That is the latest information that has been shared with me,” stated Cudjoe.

I wonder why none of these articles and media houses refuse to ask the question about how is GG's son being called up consistently ahead of other more established names --- even those in the local pool.

Wonder how the mood of the camp is on this one. If he taken seriously?
Rough for the too to be used as such a pawn in this game. His back hadda be broad yes.
All this to squeeze in a cap for a few mins it seems

Alleged gun-toting CFA member stops board meeting.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).


A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Central Football Association (CFA) on Monday, that was aimed at moving a vote of no-confidence in president Shymdeo Gosine, ended abruptly when a member, it was reported displayed a fit of rage and whipped out something resembling a gun that sent members scampering.

Guardian Media Sports was told that the incident is certain to lead to an arrest after police officers were called in and the suspect interviewed. Soon after, voice recordings of the incident began circulating among the football fraternity.

When contacted on Wednesday by Guardian Media Sports, assistant secretary Keisha Noel shared that she was scared for her life.

"While we were sitting in the meeting at approximately after 8 pm, myself, Wendell Collymore, Allan Logan, and David Ramkhelawan entered the room to begin the meeting, but before that, we were getting ready to call Wilfred Edwards, who was to join the meeting via teleconferencing. It was while doing that, the suspect (name called) decided to come in and take pictures.

"Mr Collymore and Logan proceeded to tell him he cannot take the pictures. But because of how they are, I took up my things and proceeded to the door because I did not want to be apart of any bacchanal."

According to Noel: "So, they told him he couldn't take pictures, the suspect put the camera down and pulled out a gun and when I said you pulling out a gun on us, he put it back into his pocket. Then he walked out the door, came back in, and said 'if anybody touches me, I will react accordingly'. So, I went outside, called the police and never returned to the meeting again."

The event was a culmination of previous threats and abuse that Noel said she had been subjected to since her nomination as assistant secretary, a position she picked up when general secretary Clynt Taylor was removed last year.

Guardian Media Sports understand that from the seven-man board, five members attended the meeting ready to express their dissatisfaction with the president and his leadership style. Those present were Logan, Noel, Ramkhelawan, Collymore and Edwards, all of whom signed documents regarding the 'no-confidence motion' in the president.

Gosine and Gregory Mc Sween, also attended the meeting but refused to sign the document.

Noel said under Gosine, key decisions were made without consultation with the board, while it is alleged that monies from the CFA's account were used for non-related football matters, among other concerns.

She also believes the appointment of general secretary Christopher Regis, who also attended the meeting, was done illegally and the invitation of the alleged 'gun-toting' suspect at the board meeting, although he is not a board member was a violation of the constitution by the president.

Noel said: "According to the constitution, if the president wanted to bring someone as a third-party to the meeting, he had to get approval from all the board members and that was not done. He never notified the board members that he was bringing somebody, of which he would have had to give advanced notice, and he never did that."

Meanwhile, Gosine, when contacted yesterday denied that anyone pulled out a gun at the meeting and claimed that the board, which is fractionated, has tried illegally to remove him as president.

"Clynt Taylor who used to work at Doc's Engineering was the general secretary employed by me. I allowed him to do certain things so when he brought people to me and said let's put these people on the board, I said no problem because my intention is not the board, but to get football running in the best possible manner.

"However, it turned out that there were ulterior motives involved. The situation was that they were looking at votes to get into the TTFA and that started to create a fraction in the CFA, because different people were leaning in different directions."

He added: "However, the fraction that had an allegiance to Taylor, called this meeting to remove the then president. What they did was they sent a letter with names to me, claiming that these people would have signed it. However, members would have signed something in the past and they copied it on to this letter and said that all these people could attest to this and that, which was the reason for the meeting. So, I got into contact with each individual and I knew who was a part of the meeting, who wasn't part of the meeting and who did not sign that letter. And immediately I realised it was a fraudulent letter."

The CFA boss was set to lodge a report to the Fraud Squad on the matter yesterday.

He lashed out at members on Monday for refusing to allow Regis, the current general secretary into the meeting. He said when Taylor was general secretary he was allowed to enter board meetings of the CFA.

Noel said she will await confirmation from board members on when the meeting will reconvene but made it clear, she will change the format of the meeting to a virtual one, to ensure the personal safety of members.




What ever came of this incident??

Nakhid also mentioned El Magico Gonzalez. Posted recently about Cadiz's (La Liga) venture in El Salvador .. the legacy of El Magico at Cadiz is the MAIN reason that project is happening at all.

As they like to say in trinidad, friend thing. Dennis lawrence and russell latapy was famous for that. I remember latapy excluding a lot of better options in favor of the local lads playing in the pro league, it’s almost like the crowd got in their ears by wanting to see their starlets in national colors.

I remember both fenderup and ranjitsingh being called up by Lawrence but he still insist and went with the two locals, not sure if Ross Russell was in his ears but I certainly wouldn’t doubt it, after all its trinidad we’re talking about where the nepotism has been known to reach toxic levels.

This is not a critique but an honest question,
Is it that the previous members of the Futsal team were barred from the training pool because of the court case they won recently?

In terms of what?
I meant in terms of representing us. Successive coaches show little to no interest. Wish I knew what the deal was.

Ditto
I've been asking that since he stopped getting called up pre-injury days

Heard ole talk but refused to believe it based on how it was being put out about work ethic. I highly doubt that is the real reason.

While Frenderup looks relatively solid. We need competition in that area.
Kelvin Jack seems to have his head screwed on correctly and seems like a proper professional
So i hope he gives Ranjitsingh the time of day before it's too late. He's heading into his prime after a serious injury --- the ship shouldnt have sailed yet on him

And we have limited options in that position to be coasting this way

the story posted n the info about his injury seem self-explanatory

What I do know is he's going into a highly competitive GK Union with Blake and Bendik and Freese
So minutes may be scarce possibly.
Nothing against Ranjitsingh here as I been wanting him to get capped by T&T for years.
But realistically it's gonna be a battle going up against the GK of the year in Blake

The environment will be highly competitive which can seriously improve his talent as well as working with one of the best GK coaches in the business in Phil Wheddon.

Yes, but the "what" is what is in question. Perception gap. Overblown situation in terms of perception.
I interpret your comments to mean that you are in agreement with Cruyff. I guess that you both are in a better position to judge having surely seen the young GG play. I have not, so until I do, I have to take your word that his is an "overblown situation in terms of perception". Thank you.



The crux of the matter is that a quid pro quo is not absent.

To correlate the non-existence/existence of a quid pro quo with the quality of the player is a distractor. Yuh could have a quid pro quo involving a decent player and have one for a mediocre player and have one for an average player. That's not my focus.

I've been on the ground in Coleraine. I don't have a blinkered view about this. Nor am I interested in having the wool pulled over my eyes or the footballing public's.

In this narrative, Fenwick himself has embellished reality and not for the first time.

I'm more interested in the process than the substantive outcome.

In other words, I am neither hating nor favoring. But we have to keep it real.

And I'm speaking for me, not Cruyff. Don't conflate our posts.

Cause eveybody wondering bout his statements how they're teh youngest to make a CL squad but a lil quick research and you can't find them youths on any game squads or team roster?

Thought it was just an academy and not the pro setup
Baffled how media havent really asked for more in-depth explanation on this from TF himself.

SOS to Dr Rowley! CMO accused of ‘sabotage’, as Warriors unable to train or book warm-up games
By Lasana Liburd (Wired868).



And that’s to say nothing of the illegal training sessions and pick-up matches that occur almost daily around the country.

Neither Dr Parasram nor Minister of Health Terrence Deyalsingh responded to Wired868’s request for comment on the complaints.

But then a big part of the problem, according to the insider, remains the perceived aloofness of the Ministry of Health’s senior officials.





This is baffling to me given what's going on with the national football team

Especially with CPL occuring not too long ago...
What is Cricket doing that football can translate into their policy and procedures?
Have football administrators reached out to the cricket board for advice on how to possibly proceed in advance?

And how are "illegal" sessions being conducted and even the simple small goal sweats, but our national teams can't?

Is it that the police services are fed up breaking these things up? and it's happening in main areas that are regularly travelled
Parks, school grounds...

i get the small community grounds sticky to police but ppl just bold-faced with it too

Wired868 tried to put a spotlight on it up not too long ago (the manner with which it was done was questionable) but the fact that there's been a drastic increase in the last few months --- before you couldnt pass stadiums,school grounds, savannah or King George n see men sweating----- now it's almost a sure thing!

Kids confused when you tell them you cant take em out but they seeing it happening!!

If they want to manage it where it can be done in small grp sessions for training ---- cool
but not small goal sweat for sweating sake ..i agree on that

PS. I almost fell out of my chair when Clark and cyrus claimed that DJW had a plan for football development by giving Stuart charles the responsibility to groom some under 15s as the crop for the future and Brian Williams agreed. they even praised his decision to abandoned the U23 and the rest of the football programs including the women just so he can concentrate on the U 15,

then I recall those same kids being mauled by venezeula and.....I believe it was panama in a tournament where they had not won a single game or even came close, yet these jokers sat there and thumbs up that charade as a good idea?

this is my sincere opinion and conclusion to our failure or success. our football will remain in trouble and our lads embarrassed all over the world if we don’t rid our football of these vermin masquerading as football ambassadors in trinidad and tobago.

they need to start by schooling these kids in a proper footballing environment with European or American coaching staff with a the proper nutritional, physical and mental program. that’s the only way forward.


Remember who their boss was....

and Clark is a known DJW "groupie" thru all the drama during his tenure
