Football / Re: Judah Garcia Thread.

Good news for the Garcia camp as sources have indicated to us that 20-year old Judah Garcia has gotten intense interests from four top clubs in the world. After the former Shiva Boys’ star’s contract ended with Indian Club Neroca Fc on April 1st, the likes of top flight Portuguese clubs Benfica and Sporting along with two of the Greek giants - Olympiacos and AEK Athens - are all in talks/negotiations for the midfielder.

Garcia’s older brother, Levi, also plays for AEK Athens and the next coming days/weeks will be interested to see how this development plays out.

Trinidad and Tobago could lose World Cup qualifying points over fielding a player agent
By Paul Nicholson


http://www.insideworldfootball.com/2021/04/16/trinidad-tobago-lose-world-cup-qualifying-points-fielding-player-agent/


April 16 – The embattled Trinidad and Tobago FA, currently ruled by a FIFA Normalisation Committee, could face the embarrassment of losing points from its recent World Cup qualifiers for playing an ineligible player.

Trinidad and Tobago are drawn in a group with St Kitts and Nevis, Guyana, Puerto Rico and Bermuda, a group they would ordinarily be expected to romp through without too much difficulty.

Having opened with a win against Guyana, the Trinidadians followed up with a draw against Puerto Rico, and in doing so brought on registered player agent Andre Boucard.

Boucard, who last featured for Trinidad and Tobago in March 2017, but, aged 36, had not played for at least seven months before his call-up by coach Terry Fenwick.

Trinidad and Tobago registered Boucard as playing for Maidstone Utd in England’s sixth tier, though a search of records shows no indication of his registration.

However, he was registered as a player intermediary with the English FA.

English FA rules expressly prohibit an agent playing competitively in the elite professional and semi-professional tiers of the game.

Rule 1.2 of Appendix II in the English FA rules states; “An Official (as defined by the FIFA Statues or any successor hereto) or a Player cannot be an Intermediary. An Intermediary becoming an Official or a Player shall have his Registration suspended for as long as he remains an Official or a Player.”

Boucard has subsequently pulled from the list of English FA player agents and his license temporarily suspended.

The English FA say their rules mirror those of FIFA and while the conflicts that would arise with a player also being an agent are obvious, FIFA’s own rules don’t specifically mention players cannot be agents, though the wording implies that is the case.

However, FIFA’s rules are very clear over sanctions that would be applied if an ineligible player took part in an official match. In this case the sanction would be to forfeit the game.

FIFA’s rules on eligibility read:

“1. If a player takes part in an official match despite being ineligible, his team will be sanctioned by forfeiting the match (cf. art. 31) and paying a minimum fine of CHF 6,000.

If a player takes part in a friendly match despite being ineligible, his team will be sanctioned by forfeiting the match and paying a minimum fine of CHF 4,000.”
FIFA responded to questions from Insideworldfootball saying: “As a general policy, FIFA’s judicial bodies do not speculate, nor do they comment on whether or not investigations are underway into alleged cases.”

FIFA did not respond as to whether its rules specifically preclude player agents from playing in elite matches. If they don’t then the English FA will likely have to revisit their own rules and reinstate Boucard as an intermediary.

If Trinidad and Tobago are docked points, their World Cup qualification group is thrown wide open as they would lose the crucial one point advantage they have over Guyana. It could get worse for the TTFA – though it seems unlikely – if decided to also overturn the result against Guyana. While on the squad list, Boucard did not feature in that match.

Trinidad and Tobago’s World Cup campaign has been troubled from the start with coach Fenwick clashing before a media conference with the FA’s media officer and allegedly headbutting him. That incident, witnessed by media and players, was brushed under the carpet by the TTFA saying that no physical assault took place.

Fenwick, who in his first game as coach presided over a record 7-0 loss against a second string US team, has again landed the TTFA in embarrassingly deep water , this time over his selection of a player agent.

FIFA may save the day and the blushes of Fenwick and the TTFA’s Normalisation Committee on the basis that they might not have been aware of the rules. But they are pretty basic rules not to be aware of in a game where correct registration and eligibility criteria is the first priority of any national team selection.

TT has 1 of the worst coach's in the group nearly every team has gone and hired a fairly experience decent coach to do the job TT has  gone and hired a English con man who could not even cut it in the English lower divisions even the people in England don't like his football he might look good against a bunch of amateur school boy coach's in TT but in the real world he is toast.

Terry Fenwick was outcoached in this game PR scouted our players very well did we even scout there team it sickens me when i see 1 player score against 3 defenders in the box so free TT should not be conceding goals at this level with Kevin Molino coming back we should win our next 2 games and win the group but if we win our play off games i would fire Terry Fenwick before the  next rounds starts.

This is a great idea Venezuelan teams always had good support in Trinidad and if Venezuelan professional coach's are now migrating to Trinidad they should be able to form teams to compete in the leagues in Trinidad this will lift the standard of coach's players and teams in Trinidad.

This is probably the last chance for J Jones to play professional football he is not going to last for more than 2 to 3 years he is going to end up like his cousin having a lot of skill and athletic ability but was not able to take his game to another level  just having 2 or 3 good seasons is not good enough they both lack the mental toughness needed to survive in professional football.

« on: February 21, 2021, 01:31:44 AM »
I’ve notice the one thing that our attacking players lack more than anything is the ability to dribble a ball effectively without losing control of either the ball or the situation. Kevin molino is the only trini player that I don’t see struggling in this regard but levi definitely would be a top player if he learned how to dribble and think fast on his feet. most of our attackers needs to spend much more of their free time working on their touches and ball handling, this should be a cause for major concern with the coaching staff if I had a say.
Doh study PS he does just look for ole talk.

he can dribble he just lacks unpredictability, he looked a brilliant dribbler in SSFL because we don't train 1v1 defending, defending in general and FEARLESS defending in particular, so yeah....years of being conditioned to not get beat for fear of getting laughed at, meant that Levi's deficiency as a dribbled never got noticed HERE....because we doh analyze nutten and allow mental weakness to persist over fear of dribblers.

What are either of your thoughts on the 4th goal in the 4-2 victory? 1v1 situation. Effective dribbling. Good decision-making. Outcome: goal.

Although it's not my intention to be part of the Hijack of this thread, I feel ppl need to understand perspective, respect, and history only then we can determine from where we come, understand where we are, and plot a course that we do not go full circle and repeat our mistakes.
This would be my last post on this subject. Moderators, I'm sorry.

add: Maybe through this, we will understand why certain coaches are so revered and our own are discarded with disdain, in spite of their successes. One mistake is just what our born Trinis need to be thrown out, whereas outside of TT, they themselves are promoted and themselves revered. We don't respect ourselves.

Not because we disagree with a current system or process, we must disparage or disrespect the individual's accomplishments.

Eric Williams and the Anticolonial Tradition
The Making of a Diasporan Intellectual
Maurice St. Pierre
 
New World Studies
Caribbean & African Literature

A leader in the social movement that achieved Trinidad and Tobago’s independence from Britain in 1962, Eric Williams (1911–1981) served as its first prime minister. Although much has been written about Williams as a historian and a politician, Maurice St. Pierre is the first to offer a full-length treatment of him as an intellectual. St. Pierre focuses on Williams's role not only in challenging the colonial exploitation of Trinbagonians but also in seeking to educate and mobilize them in an effort to generate a collective identity in the struggle for independence. Drawing on extensive archival research and using a conflated theoretical framework, the author offers a portrait of Williams that shows how his experiences in Trinidad, England, and America radicalized him and how his relationships with other Caribbean intellectuals—along with Aimé Césaire in Martinique, Juan Bosch in the Dominican Republic, George Lamming of Barbados, and Frantz Fanon from Martinique—enabled him to seize opportunities for social change and make a significant contribution to Caribbean epistemology.

Eric's Curse Haunts Politicians
October 28, 2001
By Raffique Shah


THE alternative to the PNM in government, the late Dr Eric Williams boasted many years ago, is chaos. At the time, many of us laughed at the notion that the PNM was the only organised political party in the country, that there was no other group that was capable of building a political structure that could be democratic and could endure. Today, decades after he made that statement, we need to ponder on his psychic-like prediction. Or, if I may put it another way, we must examine the deficiencies of the politicians who followed Williams, all of whom seem to have deliberately set out to prove him a veritable prophet of doom.

I recall this often-quoted Williams statement against the backdrop of what's happening in the current political scenario, which can best be described as being close to chaotic. Indeed, ever since the PNM was almost annihilated in the 1986 general election, we have seen Eric's successors work hard to make the PNM look good. The NAR, an amalgam of disparate forces whose only goal was to remove the PNM from office, crashed in less than two years. True, the alliance-it was never really a party-boasted of lofty goals like "uniting our rainbow people", of fighting against corruption that had thrived under PNM rule, and of promoting good, democratic governance.

That close to 400,000 out of 577,000 who voted in that election believed in the ideals promoted by the NAR, said something about our people yearning for unity, for an end to the politics of race. Interestingly, the man who almost single-handedly dismantled the NAR was one Basdeo Panday. Because he could not have his way in the Cabinet, he took up his marbles, meaning most of the Indians who supported the alliance, and walked. The NAR soon crumbled, falling victim to an attempted coup and a return to racial polarisation. In the 1991 election, the party polled 127,000 votes, 25,000 less than Panday's newly formed UNC. But like the ONR in the 1981 election (that party attracted 91,000 votes to the ULF's 62,000), it failed to win a seat in Trinidad.

In rapid succession after that, we saw Eric's prediction come to pass. His own PNM, under the leadership of Patrick Manning, dismantled itself from government in less than four years after being returned to office. Which leads me to ask if Eric, in making his famous statement, had not meant, "After me (and not the PNM), it will be chaos." Manning made a number of blunders, and by the time he was forced into calling an early election in 1995, he had lost ground, and was ousted from power by a coalition between two enemies-of-yesterday, Ray Robinson and Panday. That sweetheart "contract" lasted as long as a sno-cone in the hot sun, and only the defection of Vincent Lasse and Rupert Griffith from the PNM saved Panday's neck.

Today, six years after he had brokered a deal that saw him achieve his life-long ambition of becoming Prime Minister of the country, Panday's party is in shambles and his future in politics looks grim. Over the next few days, he'll be fighting to retain the UNC's name and symbol. In the meantime, some of his key ministers are literally fighting over the allocation of ETP (formerly URP) 10-day jobs, proving what political observers had known for quite some time. The ETP, like all its predecessor programmes in which patronage is dished out, is a potent political tool over which ministers will trade blows if they feel short-changed. And with an old brawler and boxing promoter like Arnim Smith sitting atop this manure heap, Panday could well end up pulling larger crowds at his free-fist-fights.

In the meantime, rumblings in the ranks of the PNM are threatening to undermine the core support of the party. The perception among the party's 270,000-odd supporters is that the delay in confirming Colm Imbert for Diego Martin East and Fitzgerald Hinds for Laventille, is linked to differences between Manning and Keith Rowley (who, incidentally, was confirmed as the candidate for Diego Martin West). So once more, even as the PNM is being offered power on a platter, there seem to be people in the party who are working overtime to ensure that its already disgruntled supporters stay away from the polls. And while, thus far, there have been no defections from the Ramesh Maharaj camp, power is yet another potent weapon in Panday's arsenal that could make the morally weak buckle at the knees.

Back in 1958, after only two years in power, Williams told PNMites: "We have to build our party organisation from the bottom up. We have to reorganise our system of education so that, through the party, it penetrates into the deepest masses of the people." Without doubt, Williams failed in his mission to build the well-structured party he had envisioned in those early days. Until the day he died, he had himself used power and patronage to perpetuate PNM's domination of local politics. But at least there was something the PNM had that other parties did not, and this came from work done by committed party activists who ensured that constituency groups and other organs of the party functioned.

In the run-up to the 1976 election, Williams had branded several of his sitting MPs "millstones", and when they were nominated, he had the nominations returned to the respective groups, asking them to find new candidates. The constituency groups bucked Williams, insisting that their nominees be accepted (a point Manning should note very carefully). The great Williams, a small-time dictator in his own way, bowed to the will of the party. The five men were returned to office, although Williams snubbed them thereafter.

On the eve of what will be the 11th general election since Williams entered the political arena in 1956, we are sitting on the edge of a political precipice. And it's all because no one or no group has taken the time to properly structure a party. Today, Panday holds what he has dubbed "an assembly" of his party, which he intends to expel Ramesh and company from the UNC. That "assembly", however, is really a free-for-all, a crowd that will have some legitimate members, but many more freeloaders who ride with the political wind. It's the political tragedy of our time that almost 50 years after Williams put his curse on those who opposed the PNM, no one has proved him wrong. And the irony of it all is that only Manning has the power to so do.

For democracy to work you need a strong opposition Eric Williams destroyed the opposition party in TT he created a 1 party system in TT he and his cronies was able to do what ever they want it was not until ANR Robinson and Basdeo Panday did democracy return to TT.

Eric Williams never destroyed the opposition. The opposition destroyed itself. Eric was able to keep the PNM in line. Very few deviated. Robinson disagreed with him, left and formed his own party. How is that Eric's fault. In TT you are free to form your own party, or join any party you want. The issue is, if your party can convince enough people to give your party the benefit of doubt. This has happened twice(Panday and Robbie) and (Kamala and her coalition, with Jack and Abdullah). What happened to them? They all fell out of favour with the voters. The US is the number 1 democracy and two parties vie for the spoils all the time. So I am asking you, why is TT not a democracy?
Anyone who thinks Eric Williams did not destroy democracy in TT is living in denial once Eric Williams got Rudranath Capildeo a job in England he had gotten rid of the only leader in the country that had the ability to stop him from doing what he wanted Eric Williams now had control of the house and there was nobody to stop him he basically sabotage the opposition  party democracy was over in TT until Anr Robinson and Basdeo Panday was able to form a strong opposition party to stop the PNM party them other partys was just making up numbers them elections in TT use to be rig.

Jamaica has something that TT does not have its called democracy Eric Williams and the PNM regime destroyed democracy in TT it will take generations to fix until the people of TT change there way of thinking things will never run properly in TT.

Explain to us how Eric and PNM destroy democracy in TT. The fact is that there is different degrees of democracy. Democracy in TT is feisty and divisive due to the multi racial composition of the country. Each racial group want to take TT in a direction which suits their vision. JA is a predominantly Afro and culturally Afro-centric country. There are East Indian, Chinese and others in all walks of life there. But politically Afros dominate the country. Hence there is more conformity in the way JA think and do things. One thing I can say that the two major ethnic groups in TT have never fought pitch battles in the streets against one another. But I have doubts what could happen in the future. What we need to do is stop raising the ethnic and racial heat in the country. It easy to call for blood. But it hard to stop it when it begins to flow.

In a democracy it is the duty of the Opposition to be loyal, but it is not the duty of the ruling party to sustain or maintain the viability of the Opposition. In any event, the NAR would not have emerged had the decimation you have imagined been fully realized or achieved.
Had the 1970 coupe been successful TT would have been much better off today.

Eric Williams was a great book writer but a poor leader people in TT need to stop mixing up the 2 he was giving a country with great wealth and potential but left TT broke because he was a failure as a leader.
Well now you just talking shit. Slide on. Sorry for interrupting.
The truth hurts and socialism sucks until the people of TT get rid of the PNM party they will never succeed on the international stage.

A resident academy requires plenty money. You will need to tutor the players and prepare them for GCE or the technical school equivalency. Outside of the protective services, NONE of the clubs has the ability to have an inhouse academy. Now the clubs with the collaboration of the TTFA can have a joint inhouse academy like the USSF has in Bradenton, Florida. But present something right now, that we will say ... YES!!!! that can work. I can't see it.

Dred, money is the problem. Leh me put it this way. The people who have the money have no interest. Comparing us with JA eh go work. We may have more similarities than less, but somehow we see and approach things differently. The economic and racial dynamic are different. Somehow JA get all the stakeholders(govt and business) to put out money for football, netball and TF. In TT we split along racial and ethnic lines. And unfortunately the people who play the most of the football in the country are at the bottom of the economic ladder. That is why football, basketball, netball depend on the govt too damn much. I see Panama is a multi racial and ethnic country. But the stakeholders(govt and business) pore money into their program. I see TT destroy Panama in the Oval. Dennis Lawrence made a solo run and scored a beaut. We won about 4-0. Now we struggle to beat them. They way past we now. Breds, I don't know what to tell you again. It is what it is. Until Afro Trinis come up with their own money to develop players, I see the sport heading the way of netball, basketball. In the doldrums.  All talk and no substance

Upset Fenwick wants football in a 'bubble'
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian).


'Unfair' if how national coach Terry Fenwick feels his team is being treated by government officials ahead of the country's opening World Cup qualifying against Guyana on March 25 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo.

The Soca Warriors face the possibility of the match not coming off because of precaution being taken by government officials toward the spread of the deadly coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Both the government, through the Ministry of Health and its Chief Medical Officer (CMO) Dr Roshan Parasram, and the FIFA-appointed Normalisation Committee, which is being led by businessman Robert Hadad, have been locked in talks on whether the Guyanese team will be allowed to enter local shores for the match.

The NC is proposing a football bubble which is similar to what was done with the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) here in Trinidad and Tobago from August 18- September 10 at the Brian Lara Stadium in Tarouba, but it is unsure of what's the government's position, as the national team has had to wait not knowing what will happen.

On Friday, a frustrated Fenwick told Guardian Media Sports that: "We've got to be realistic, what's good for the goose is good for the gander. We've got the CPL which is a money-generating operation, nothing was said about it, they got on with it, players were happy. Why can't the national football team do the same? I'm not asking for anything bigger or better, no more expense, why can't we do the same thing?"

On July 8, 2020, Sports Minister Shamfa Cudjoe told the media at a news conference at the Office of the Prime Minister in Scarborough, Tobago that a contingent of over 251 people, including the players, staff and other officials attached to the six CPL teams—the Barbados Tridents, Guyana Amazon Warriors, Jamaica Tallawahs, St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, St Lucia Zouks and the Trinbago Knight Riders—will come into T&T for the series and will be quarantined at the Hilton Trinidad in Port-of-Spain and must adhere to strict COVID protocols

She continued: “They would be doing their quarantine period there and they would be tested before leaving home (countries) to ensure they are negative, tested when they get here to Trinidad and Tobago and going to quarantine, tested on their seventh day and tested again on their fourteenth day. This is the first time we are hosting this type of sporting activity under COVID regulations and this COVID situation."

She also said that the Government had reached an agreement with the CPL where they will host the tournament to the tune of US$1 million, broken down into US$500 in cash and US$500 in kind.

The country's borders have been closed since the deadly outbreak of the coronavirus in March last year, and since then the government has used a cautious approach in returning nationals who were caught abroad.

Yesterday Dr Parasram did not respond to a Whatsapp message that asked for an update on the matter, neither did he say whether a tri-nation bubble tournament among the national teams of T&T, St Vincent and the Grenadines and St Lucia will go on as planned later this month (February), due to the mandatory 14-day quarantine period for people entering the country.

According to Fenwick: "We're in the dark ourselves and we are waiting on normalisation committee chairman Robert Hadad to find out what we can actually do. We've had CPL played in a bubble, placed in big hotels, travel to the Brian Lara Stadium, and because it was an income-generating competition, they've allowed it to happen, but they are now frustrating our national team in a World Cup qualifying game that should be at the Hasely Crawford Stadium. As well as the CPL, there are multiple businessmen/expatriates to arrive here in T&T and spend one day in quarantine. They spend one week wherever they're coming from, but when they arrive in T&T they do one day. So I am frustrated because I don't want to give anything away, that is a plus."

The English-born coach, whose team was hammered 7-0 by the United States in an international friendly encounter on January 31 in Orlando Florida, USA, lamented the horrible past four years that local football has had to endure, saying it had to face countless court matters with the world-governing body for the sport- FIFA, as well as other private citizens, to the administrations' inability to get structured football going.

He said he intends to reach to the powers that be to help them: "We're reaching out to the powers that be, the ministers and indeed the Prime Minister who loves his football. We cannot ignore these opportunities that came by. This first game is all-important and we have an opportunity to play it in Port-of-Spain, and we're ignoring that, we're not taking it on. We've got the CMO, the Health Ministry stopping this. We've been in quarantine for 14 days. We were in the United States for a week and we were tested every single day. since we've been back, we've had three tests and daily monitors to make sure we are okay."

Since returning from the USA on February 3, the local players and technical staff have been in isolation quarantine for seven days and are now under home quarantine for a further seven days until Tuesday.
If the TT government don't want to host the football games the TTFA should move there home games to Florida.

From my observation on Fenwick.

I think Terry can form a decent game plan. But it would be quite basic. He usually create teams from the back. Solid defence, hard to breakdown but not very imaginative going forward. Lots of 0-0 and 1-0 results.

I don’t think he can change tactics mid game. So if he goes 1-0 down, he probably will lose. His talent is in building a good team spirit. Players will fight for him and dig deep. He’s a good motivator. However, he rarely takes responsibility and usually blame players for poor results.

See how Liburd turned on Terry? He’s really developed a reputation of stabbing people in the back. You notice how lots of the main football people don’t talk to him? He’s shit on everyone over the years!

Terry will do well against most regional teams, but the better coached teams will expose his lack of tactical ability. Check Terry’s stats in Belgium. Lots of whippings over there because his lack of tactical adaptability was exposed!

Look how he did nothing on Sunday vs USA to stop the attacks down the wings! His successes have always come when he’s had money to spend. That’s because the players make him look good! When Clico left Jabloteh, Terry followed. He demands exorbitant salaries and will sacrifice players to earn what he wants.

As for Sean Bonval, he is ok. He could be a regular in the team but he won’t be a star.
Are you saying he's another S Hart a 1 trick pony playing the same 4 3 3 system every game.

The problem for J Sadoo is he has to compete with M W Ling to be the playmaker on the team and most coach's  do not use 2 playmakers on a team i have not seen him play but i have seen videos of M W Ling when he played in Malta he can play as a #8 or a #10 he is also good at set pieces so i will have him pulling the strings in my midfield but i don't expect M W Ling to be in TT for to much longer once he is playing on the NT so J Sadoo will get his chance.

You are not going to learn anything from a game were you are going to be defending for 90% of the game and you hoping not to get blown out that's just a waste of time it would be better to go and train in Florida for couple weeks and play both Canada and U S A so you can better evaluate players.

Matthew Woo Ling is going to be the key to this team TT finally have a technically good midfielder on the team that could pull the strings TT could now play K Molino higher up the field were he can score more goals.

How allyuh does come up with these viewpoints? What is it based on?
Based on my technical expertise

To bad a player that good is stuck in trinidad eh ffisback
In 1989 R Latapy was a local player to and look at what he was able to do M W Ling just need to be half as good as he was and we good to go.
