Canada's renaissance is a good thing for CONCACAF. Next time let's see what can be accomplished without Arctic conditions. 👿
I think more than just a revival, this is something completely new. They have never achieved such a level of of play (0 losses) and possibility of qualification. Hope they can maintain. This is not just the one child of West Indian parentage (Randy Samuel) in the whole team, but a greater proportion of 1st generation immigrant kids, Jamaica, Haiti, Trinidad, Portugal..etc.   
    Herdman is a brave and fair man to go that route, selecting the best players and not political/financial appeasements, now would the powers that be allow him stay that course, left to be seen. As we well know, Administrative committees can put a lot of pressure on managers, especially in our region.

Selling Home of Football could halve TTFA's $98.5m debt
By Jonathan Ramnanansingh (T&T Newsday)


Back to page 1.  Centre of Excellence, Home of Football..How about for the next funding throw way and mess  ahmm ahmm ......National Elite Xeric Training  Centre (united national tacticians and soccer schools)
Nextc**tss

smh.. Can barely maintain, but we can build. Spoke to the maintenance crew at CCCan last year. 4 ppl to do cleaning the whole pool building during and after events, 2 guys and 2 girls. They had to lift and carry the garbage over 500 yards away. I counted 8 administrators in the office, awaiting questions and to provide service. Build. how the Lara build going.
ps: the maintenance staff and security personnel did and wanted to say more, but asked me to keep things on the low, as they were afraid of losing their jobs. I already gave the story about the police checkpoint .

Notable contrast between a figure asserted to be in the tens of thousands and a yield of less than three tens.
Maybe the Game, Jobs  AND the 'industry' (industry the man say !) not as important to the

" 30,000 people in T&T that play football at some sort of competitive level, separated by another 25,000, who use football as a recreational activity. The industry generates an estimated TT$800,000 in economic activity annually and that has been shut down. So you're talking about some 20,000 to 30,000 young people who are out of some form of income. "

So why would the powers that be take 25 ppl seriously. There's more seriousness and ppl in the safe zone bars on the Avenue, any avenue.

What happen ? The Men's National team not training ? Why Futsal ? Does Futsal train (indoors- small field???) more than the potential snr Ntl team. This guy has to beg for an invite ? Didn't he have a heart issue when called previously ? Is a potential Ntl team training now ? Is Angus and staff working ? Will they be paid ?

There needs to be transparency on the contract associated with Thomas' employment. The degree to which the NC protected/failed to protect the interest of TT football is implicated in that transparency.
Maybe he might just sue for normal(ization) stupidity. Seems the only contracts/deals we make is whereby we manage to fk weself and each other.

Hey if it's free and you have someone who can actually analyze and draw positive benefits and conclusions from the technology and data produced sure, use it. However, i'm not sure it's high on the list of priorities of what is absolutely needed by our women's program at this moment or for the next few years. In my opinion top of the list of priorities are barely field related at all. Even if football is played on a field, A lot of of it's organization and positive production is done off it. Even for fete match. Otherwise is just a pickup run out in the park, some show up, some don't.

Football / Re: Maylee Attin-Johnson Thread
« on: September 17, 2021, 10:02:00 AM »
I am not questioning her abilities or commitment. She was having same issues with TTFA like the male members. I have spoken to her on many occasions. I am saying that we have serious problems if we have to come back to her an some of the older players.  Everybody were complaining of TT sports not having developmental programs. Berated for not being like JA, etc. Check out ABTrini have a post "recycling vs development".
So if I understand you correctly. We’re not in a dire situation because of Maylee, but had dire problems over years and years of mismanagement, in spite of the Maylees and other older but still presently better players. So your comments then might just be in the wrong thread. If so, no argument there. However it’s something we have known for a very long time ( even pre 2006- over 15 years ago) especially with the women game. Yet, we have games NOW, and have to go with the best we can get, irregardless of who they are. Men and Women. Not until we fix the mentality and loyalty of our ppl and by extension the administrative organizations, it will continue for maybe another 50 years. In most cases sacrifices must be made to be successful at others. TT ppl must learn blessed as we may think, it is not normal to have it all, even if born into all of it.

Wow.... we in dire problems.
Why you say that ? Your seeing a better way forward ? You seeing an incorrect process? You think Maylee not good and shouldn’t be given a chance ? I’m not seeing what you’re seeing. If she is still one of the better players at 40, I would still invite her out. A la Milla et al. Yet if you personally and presently know of better players at this time, who are in a position to attend regular Ntl team practices, enlighten us, so we may suggest so to avoid the dire problems that you forsee, which we weren’t in before. Listening!

I am not sure if Angus going to last, especially if he does not get the resources from the NC. Like I posted in the WC 2022 thread, the next WC after Qatar will be extremely difficult to qualify. Three teams have already qualify because they will be hosts. US, Mexico an Canada will be hosting the tournament. So that means only 2 spots or 1.5 spots will be available. The NC better get their act together.
Who would you consider ever did 'last' ?

why d fuuck we didn' start like this, Eve got this start wrong
yup. I was certain Moore and Joseph would have been on top, Telfer in his wing role. Hacksaw & Molino middle, Powder left (4-4-2) Jones or Williams ,  David, Peters, Hodge.

At least he successfully adjusted the 2 nd half, but chasing the game at this level not easy for anybody.

that El Salvador team looked unsettle d moment we started cuttin out dey channels and closin dey angles, El sal nor Guat does deal with pressing well, yet dem was pressing we all over d park.....we lose two nil and yuh could still see we coulda get ah result if IF we did come out and play man.....dais what hurtin mih d most......
it almost look like the boys were over-trained, didn’t have the same energy as previous games. Guessing he didn’t count on dem scoring 1st with a pro-defensive strategy.
Add: Telfer alone has never been enough up top.

I call it like it is.. This team is shit!! If you want to settle for mediocrity, go ahead.. I said what I said. No wonder they only getting signed in India, and simple fans like you would applaud it. El Salvador beat T&T and I am pissed about that. My Kaka hole El Salvadorian neighbor calling for 100 dollars already lol.. look I venting and I know I’ll be back to support them.. but right now this team is shit in my eyes.
mediocrity? No sah. Never, I settle for ppl trying they best. However, if you call what you saying ‘support’, let me tell you, your level of support is shit. Pay the man he money, eh ! He obviously know which team to back.  ::)

Take the loss and use this game for experimenting. Try switching up the formation. Try players in different positions. See what works. Then use this information to beat El Salvador and Guatemala.

BTW. Guatemala has it out for us. Any fck up, and they go smell blood and punish us.

The Mexico match must be approached like a must-win game because the second position will likely come down to goal differences. Be competitive versus Mexico, then get points from both El Salvador and Guatemala. So, instead of accepting the fate, play to score versus Mexico and force them to allocate resources in the back by fighting for every inch in the midfield and covering the flanks. That is how central American teams are usually able to limit the damages when playing Mexico. They don't just go defensive and hope that Mexico will respect their personal space! :)

If this game versus Mexico is kept at a respectable score, then surviving this group becomes a reality. Guatemala is a weak team. I can see a victory over the Guatemalans. The fight for second place is really between T&T and El Salvador, which is why the game versus Mexico is so important even if it results in a loss.

On a second note, forget everything. Just beat Mexico and everyone else, problem solved! :)
:thumbsup: have seen more unlikely things happen.

:D :D that 6-1 Montserrat lil hype means absolutely nothing now. And we only played a team one gear better in French Guiana

listen to what T&T goalkeeper had to say about T&T performance. I applaud the man for being honest. T&T played shit!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSD7llexjGU



If Frenderup was included by Lawrence, I doubt we would've been in this position.

If we lost the game, I doubt Frenderup would be flying across the Atlantic for future games.

Frenderup now OWNS that spot between the pipes. Phillip and Foncette lucky if they ever play for the NT again.
I hope they keep up their hard work and service cause you never know when they might be needed. Like Shaka and Jack. Supporters could be great or dump on the team, we don’t have to train to talk shit, but all these guys have to show up everyday, work their asses off to face successes or embarrassment and live with their play, good or bad. Thanks for your work guys, now turn it up. Stay healthy, we need you at your best. Good Luck all. Again thanks for the extended run.


Add: wait nah, is Mexico we beating on Saturday, ahready?

Heart attack. .

But it shouldn't have come down to this. Congratulations to the team. A lot of work still needs to get done. Mexico awaits..

FG outplayed us. They deserve the win.

Like I said, these guys under the French system. They may not be Div.1, but they can outclass us on any given day. I am almost sure they were playing dead to ketch cobo alive. They were probably training hell hard and ready for well tail. Angus have some work to do. [\b] He better get it right. Congrats and good luck.

Angus alone ?

Again, tomorrow's game against FG is not a given. DO NOT underestimate this team. Win this game and we are in GC. If we can't beat this team, then what is our football worth?

The worth of our football does not hinge on that game. Just look at where we are right now. Look at what has transpired over the last five years.
