« on: January 06, 2006, 01:33:05 AM »
I would like tallman (as head of this site the largest Warriors support forum) to formulate a letter from the supporters demanding for some resolve to this ticket situation. Then everyone should within a week of him posting the letter add their name to the letter. Like a petition, then I will forward it to Mr Housemann the head of FIFA marketing who is aware of the situation. I have spoken with him and members of his staff(of whom I have posted before). I will forward the Letter to Mr Housemann and await response.

I am taking this idea from someone else because we need to get it done. I believe that we as members of this forum should all sent letters to the various authorities demanding answers to this Ticket fiasco. I have already sent two to FIFA and I will be sending more with copies of letters posted here. Please do the same with the resopurces you have to the ppl there in trinidad and embassies. Only as a united ppl can we do something and get results. We need to stop talking about whats going on and do something. NOW. Even if that means protesting the TTFF office.

Football / Historic times for CONCACAF

 Historic times for CONCACAF
8 December 2005

North and Central America and the Caribbean is in celebratory mood. Germany 2006 will represent a historic occasion for the confederation, which, for the first time in the history of the FIFA World Cup™, will have four representatives, a source of enormous satisfaction for all of its members.
Moreover, for the first time in the history of the competition, one of the eight seeds will come from the region, with Mexico being the first CONCACAF representative, other than host countries, to achieve this historic feat. The Mexicans themselves, in 1970 and 1986, and the United States, in 1994, have already had the honour of being seeded in world football's showpiece event, but this was purely down to their being hosts.

Fully merited
The region has never before had four representatives at a FIFA World Cup finals, and its achievement is fully merited. For some years now, the countries which make up CONCACAF have proven their worth at the world's most prestigious tournaments.

One revealing fact quite clearly shows the progress made by these nations: since Mexico 1986, at least one representative from the North, Central American and Caribbean region has progressed to the second round of a FIFA World Cup, which represents the longest unbroken sequence outside South America and Europe.

At Mexico 1986, it was the host nation that achieved this feat. Four years later, it was the turn of Costa Rica to progress beyond the first round, while at USA 1994 both the hosts and Mexico did so. At France 1998, the Mexicans emulated their achievements of 1986 and 1994, while at Korea/Japan 2002, Mexico came up against the USA in the round of sixteen.

Clearly, the region's ample representation at Germany 2006 is entirely merited. Jack A. Warner, the CONCACAF President and Vice-president of FIFA, is perhaps the person who has derived most satisfaction from this progress. "I have a real sense of achievement, because it means that the entire region has progressed at every level. We have gone from having one, then two, then three and, finally, four representatives, and that is something that we have achieved collectively."

It so happens that the fourth representative is Trinidad and Tobago, Warner's country of birth, something which fills him with immense pride and happiness. "The smallest country (in terms of population) to take part in a FIFA World Cup is from the CONCACAF region. Just wait until you see the impression they make on everyone both on and off the pitch, with their style of play, but also their inherent joy, colourful attire and their dancing. This shows the ability of the teams from this region and it's an achievement to be really proud of."

Mexico seeded
The other great piece of news for CONCACAF, of course, is that Mexico have been named among the seeds. Again, this achievement is entirely merited. Based on the formula applied, whereby performances at France 98 and Korea/Japan 2002 and the FIFA/Coca Cola World Ranking were taken into account, the Tricolor finished in a highly commendable fifth place, ahead of such traditional powers as Argentina, Italy and France.

Furthermore, Mexico have made significant progress in recent years. They are only one of four countries (along with Brazil, Italy and Germany) to have qualified for the second round at each of the last three FIFA World Cups. They also performed admirably against the major nations at the FIFA Confederations Cup Germany 2005 and were never once behind after the 90 minutes of normal time.

It came as no surprise to Warner that Mexico were named as one of the seeds. "If one country epitomises the progress made by countries within the CONCACAF region, it is Mexico. They have consistently occupied one of the top places in the FIFA World Ranking, and let's not forget that they are the current FIFA U-17 world champions. This is no coincidence and I think they fully deserve to be among the seeded countries."

However, Mexico were not the only team from the region to come to the fore on Tuesday when the seeds were announced. The United States also played a leading role, with Bruce Arena's men missing out by a whisker on being named among the eight seeded teams. If the current seeding formula is retained and they perform well in Germany, they could well be among the seeds for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™.

The CONCACAF President praised the achievements of the USA and, as a parting comment, predicted a dazzling future for the North, Central American and Caribbean region. "The United States almost achieved it and it would have been an historical feat because we would have had two seeds. But this is only the beginning. I am convinced our teams will perform very well and at least advance to the second round, where they will take each game as it comes."

Every FIFA World Cup™ has its share of first-time finalists, some of whom invariably make a mockery of pre-tournament forecasts and send shockwaves around the world. Cameroon, Costa Rica, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia and Senegal, to name a few, have all defied the odds at one time or another and covered themselves in glory.
The teams set to debut at Germany 2006 are a diverse group, each with their own story to tell. Some were territories of former countries that had long and rich footballing heritages, such as Serbia and Montenegro, who previously played as Yugoslavia, and the Czech Republic, whose history was as half of a Czechoslovakia side that reached two FIFA World Cup finals.

Then there are those sides who, in spite of making their debut at the finals, have players of international standing who are gracing the world's top leagues. Among this group are Ukraine, with Andriy Schevchenko as their standard bearer, Côte d'Ivoire, who boast star striker Didier Drogba, and Ghana, who have the highly rated Michael Essien bossing their midfield.

Finally, there are the lesser known sides whose players come mainly from the respective countries' domestic leagues or from the lower divisions in Europe. Trinidad and Tobago, Togo and Angola all fall into this category. Nevertheless, their opponents in Germany would be unwise to underestimate them, as several big-name sides found out to their cost during the qualifiers. Having already defied the odds in making it to finals, they remain confident they can do so again in Germany.

Trinidad and Tobago, a mix of guile and guidance
Only nine months ago, a forlorn-looking Trinidad and Tobago were languishing at the bottom of CONCACAF's 'Hexagonal' qualifying group and seemingly out of the running for Germany. All that changed with the arrival of veteran Dutch coach Leo Beenhakker, who immediately brought to bear the experience of a long career in places like the Netherlands, Spain and Mexico, turning the team's fortunes around in a few short months.

By the end of the campaign the Soca Warriors had achieved the impossible and booked their place at a FIFA World Cup for the first time in their history. Their success was down partly to the organisation and confidence Beenhakker brought to the side, and partly to the talent of his players, many of who are already legends in this small nation of just over one million people.

Dwight Yorke, a UEFA Champions League winner from his time at Manchester United, was the main driving force in the squad, though by no means the only one. Their powerful striker Stern John, who plays his football in England, got the all-important goals in the 2-1 win over Mexico that took them into the play-offs, while the gifted Russell Latapy played a key role in restoring balance to the midfield. With these able individuals forming the nucleus of a solid and disciplined side, T&T will be hoping to emulate the exploits of their Caribbean neighbours Jamaica, who recorded a glorious win over Japan (2-1), in their first FIFA World Cup adventure at France 98.
Togo, flying high
At 1.91m, Emmanuel Adebayor is not only one of the most effective strikers in the game today, he is also one of the tallest. His 11 goals on the way to Germany 2006 made him the top scorer in the African qualifiers. His physical presence and sheer quality have made him Togo's star man, although there is a lot more to Stephen Keshi's side than just Adebayor.

The reliability of French-based goalkeeper Kossi Agassa, the stoic defending of Jean-Paul Abalo and the incisive attacking of Abdel Coubaja, scorer of two goals in qualifying, are just some of the reasons why Togo feel they can cause an upset in Germany. As they prepare for their first FIFA World Cup, the Togolese know only too well that there will be a steep learning curve at the finals. However, if Senegal were able to work wonders at Korea/Japan 2002, and Togo able to deny the Senegalese a place at Germany 2006, who is to say the Hawks have no right to dream of glory?

Angola, the value of hard work
Of the 32 qualifiers, perhaps Angola are the side the world knows least about, with the possible exception of the powerful Mantorras, who has made a name for himself at Benfica. The bulk of their players line up for African or Portuguese outfits and we have seen on numerous occasions that sneaking in under the radar can be a big plus when teams know how to take advantage of it.

No one knows this better than Luis Oliveira Goncalves's men. When destiny threw the Palancas Negras together with continental superpower Nigeria in Group 4 of the African Zone, very few gave them any chance of going through. Yet when the curtain came down on the marathon campaign in October, it was the cohesive and disciplined Angolans who came out on top, ironically by virtue of their superior head-to-head record against the Super Eagles.

So Angola should not be discounted either, especially if Akwa, their most influential figure in the qualifiers, can carry his form through to June 2006, and goalkeeper Joao Pereira continues to show why he had the second lowest goals-against record on the continent.

No bail for drug accused

Richard Charan

Tuesday, December 6th 2005
Hairdresser Abigail Friday-Teller (right) leaves the San Fernando Magistrates' Court yesterday after being denied bail on the charge of cocaine trafficking.

HAIRDRESSER Abigale Friday-Teller was denied bail yesterday on the charge of having 1.2 kilogrammes of cocaine with the intention of trafficking the drug.

The drug which was sealed in 107 one-inch long capsules was found in a cereal box inside a duffel bag.

Friday-Teller, 36, appeared before San Fernando Second Court Magistrate Ameena Deonarinesingh.

With her hair dyed red and wearing a sweatsuit, Friday-Teller, of Corinth Village, San Fernando, was brought in handcuffs to the court.

She was represented by attorney Ian Gray.

Deonarinesingh read the charge to Friday-Teller, explaining that the prosecution intended to pursue the case indictably, which meant that she would face a High Court judge and jury if a prima facie case was made out against her.

The cocaine exhibit was displayed in court before, and prosecutor Sgt Joey Samaroo said police had also seized Friday-Teller's passport and a frosted flakes cereal box which formed part of the case against her.

Samaroo said that the woman, who was arrested at 4.30 a.m. on Sunday had not been traced by police.

The magistrate said it was reasonable to grant the State time to conduct the criminal background check and the police were given 24 hours.

Friday-Teller, who operates a hair salon from her home, was remanded in custody to reappear in court today when bail will be considered.

Australia offer to help Dwight get ready for Germany
By John Taylor (The Daily Telegraph)

AUSTRALIA has offered to help prepare Dwight Yorke for the World Cup finals in Germany next year provided the Socceroos don't draw Trinidad and Tobago in their group.

Socceroos assistant coach Graham Arnold is trying to organise a local-based squad of World Cup hopefuls to train and play friendly matches against state league clubs once the A-League is finished and would invite Yorke to join them.

"Dwight's been great for the A-League. He's given the competition a high profile," Arnold said yesterday.

"He showed just what a true professional he is when he skipped Trinidad's celebrations [after they beat Bahrain and qualified for their first World Cup] to come straight home and play for Sydney FC.

"If we can help him stay fit we will. It's one way of repaying him.

"But first we have to wait and see who we draw in our group."

Trinidad captain Yorke said yesterday he hadn't given much thought to how he would keep himself fit once his commitments ended with Sydney.

"I am not thinking that far ahead," he said. "I have a game against Melbourne on Saturday and then we're off to Japan where we first have to get past Deportivo Saprissa [in the FIFA World Club Championship]."

Arnold, along with coach Guus Hiddink, will be in Leipzig for the World Cup draw on December 9.

 Arnold reiterated yesterday that A-League players were certainly not out of contention for the trip to Germany in June.

"Guus doesn't allow players to rest on their laurels," said Arnold. "All players have to perform," he said.

While he missed out on the squad for the qualifiers against Uruguay, Leicester's Patrick Kisnorbo will surely put pressure on some of the older players.

"He'll be monitored just like everyone else," said Arnold.
