Placing on the job training in context:

Quote
Last season Gerrard coached Liverpool’s Under-18s. “I learned a lot preparing and delivering sessions, speaking to players one-to-one, using different formations. It gave me a year’s driving lessons. I wasn’t expecting the Rangers offer. Do I think it came a bit early? Probably. But when it’s a club as big as Rangers you only get one opportunity to manage them. So I had to reflect. Where am I strong? Who do I need to help me in areas where I lack experience? The staff Rangers put around me have been absolutely brilliant.”

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2018/nov/15/steven-gerrard-rangers-liverpool-jurgen-klopp-chelsea-interview

Everything is not necessarily about the First Team experience. Every coach has had a first coaching job and a lack of experience. More important than experience is a personalized understanding of how to effectively convey/teach the game to players.
Everybody is not a quick learner S Gerrard may only needs 1 stint with the u18 team D Lawrence probably need several stints.

@ffisback

You seem to be ignoring that the TTFA solicited applications worldwide. Do you recall, or are you aware of, the number of persons who applied for the position? From that actual pool of applicants, we have definition of those who were concretely interested in the job. What's your plan? To present the job to someone who is not interested in the position?

Did Vranes apply for the position?

Where is this supposed "better coach for that money" among the applicants?
I read some were that Vanes and Maturana put in for the position and if what you telling me is true that people from all over the world put in for the position and that is who they chose everybody on that board should be fired at once.

'being successful at football' is a relative term. it depends on current status(position), setting and achieving of goals, level of support administratively, financially, and publicly, development, selection, product, produce (some say, chemistry), test, adjustment and pure luck, and current state of the Nation . Only God can guarantee any success, and even that deity mysterious works we still trying to figure out. I think the state of the world today, God to busy to manage we team - even if he might be Trini.
 However, let's look at general resumes. Note we could only look at resumes we can presently afford, don't know why you keep bringing up Hart, he was no God, and if he was, he's gone, still being owed (fired, no less) and probably not affordable at present (i will include his just for reference).
Sometimes I wonder if that is why TT where we is, the God came and TTians say we doh need he..We have we own.

So given the present state of the TTFA(or TT) economy, and our product as is, who you hiring ?
This revolving door thing has to stop, we not no professional club, even if it might be a decent model to follow. Anyway, with this I stop.

I agree with a lot what you said and I know the TTFF is broke but I'm sure that the money that they paying  DL they could get a better coach for that money of the coach's you mention DL has no 1st team coaching experience player development is not the same as building a team. SH has a lot of coaching experience but flopped when he had Canada and TT his outdated English football style was just to predictable. ZV built St Vincent most successful team he built Antigua most successful team he built TT most successful u20 team he built TT most successful Olympic team had G Cummings not sabotage the team in 1996 he probably would have been successful there to so I will put my money on Vanes anytime over does guys.

Speaking of ignorance you have failed to make a case as to why DL who has never coached any were before is going to turn TT into a successful team or if SH was so successful how come he could not win a little tournament like the Caribbean cup.

He was an assistant at Everton for a number of years. wasn't he? He has a coaching barge. As you may know, it is very difficult for native born Blacks to get a foot in English football coaching society. I was surprised he got an assistant job in England. The only other option for him was to come back home. Where did Sol Campbell coached before he came to TT for a brief stint.
My problem with former players like R Latapy and D Lawrence is that instead of trying to get coaching jobs in the lower divisions to get experience they always take the easy way out and run back to TT there is a lot of coaching jobs in the lower levels in Europe but them men doh ha the belly to stick it out they want to run back home and get a easy check and play big coach and turn the NT into some reserve team training exercise TT is a top 10 team in the concacaf we are used to challengeing the big boys we don't need no reserve team coach we need a real coach.

What if I say. Hart had a similar record to BeenHakker. What if I say, from 2013 to 2015, during Hart's tenure (2013-2016), BeenHakker was the football director and adviser. What if I say a coach with the best record was a local coach. Would you take the blue pill or the red pill ?

Either way. Hart, BeenHakker, Maturana, ain't coming back..no foreigner worth there salt would take the job - that includes many coaches on this shit-talk board right here..Vranes has not built any strong resume ( a la a Fenwick) by being a multiple snr winner in the local leagues. I suggest, be glad we have Dennis Lawrence who has some measure of experience, local and international, as both a player and a coach, and we should try keeping him as long as possible as he works to get things right. On the job training yes, but with our Team, administration and supporters, it will always and forever be a work in progress. We never really consistently win anything. Always if, coulda and woulda.
Try to keep the somebody on a long term, so they can develop and build something instead of breaking down and starting over everytime a cold breeze blow, or a heat wave pass. It's normal weather for our region, especially these days.
What if I say I had the winning lotto numbers I would be rich today now back to realty SH has done nothing to prove that he is a successful coach he could not even win the Caribbean cup something ZV who you don't much of has won what made SH such a successful coach to the people of TT is something i cannot comprehend.
What made Beenhakker successful was R Latapy comming out of retirement if R Latapy never came back Beenhakker would have been another failed foreign coach I would never hire him to take TT football into the future and i believe Vanes and Maturana is more suitable for the job and will give TT a chance again.

And after nearly 2 years its plane to see that DL does not have what it takes to take this team into the futeur .

if you had the winning lotto numbers you might be rich, but you would still be ignorant of the fact that the one reality is Dennis Lawrence is the current coach and unless he quits or is fired - I doubt because of your feelings or anybody feelings or your new found money - there is no other candidate being considered. Totally irregardless of how you feel about Stephen Hart. Maybe you can hire Maturana with your dream money.
Point taken Cocorite.

Put yourself as the TT coach in this present situation. Do you think you can do any better? Imaging you presenting short term and long term strategies for TT national team. Just think about that.

From the time the world cup qualifiers were done, I would have gone with a team to qualify for the Olympics 2020. Leave Levi Garcia and Joevin Jones to establish themselves professionally. Keep Bateau to help with the younger defenders coming through and maybe Hyland for his experience, and Molino when the next world cup campaign come around.

We really have nobody so great that younger players can't supplant them in preparation for the future.
I agree with you 100% but it seems as if DL has not gotten the message so it is better we get rid of this guy while we ahead of the game.

I agree with that also. TTFA should have two senior teams. The U-23 being the B team. They should have the local U-23 play against Caribbean opposition or any  CA or SA team that will schedule a game with us. TTFA is unable to multitask. The leader has on blinders. The blinders is focusing on the construction of the hotel. DL could only go so far with DJW without him being fired.
That's not DJW job that's the coach's job I remember when G Cummings and Z Vanes had the team they used to bring younger players into the team DL does not do that because he does not know what he is doing that's why he should be fired.
DJW is the one who is telling DL which players he should pick, DJW did it to Hart, and Hart refused which resulted him getting fired.
If S Hart was picking his own team and still getting his but kick he deserved to get fired.

I think Z Vanes and F Maturana was good.

Once DL gives a player like N Lewis who is riding pine in the USL playing time he has shown that he does not know what he is doing and he should be fired all the players who name I called should be given playing time.

Wait, so you championing Maturana who gave Hyland among others numerous caps while "unattached" but taking issue with DL capping Lewis?.  How is it not worse to call up players not signed to any club at all than calling up Lewis who is attached to a club and practicing within a structured football environment?
Apples and grapes Hyland was a young 19 year old player who was on the verge of signing a contract in Europe and needed the caps N Lewis is 28 years old no club in Europe will sign a unproven player that age.

People in TT continue use this false notion that instead of spending money and resources on a foreign coach they could get the same result if they spend on a local coach that could not be furthest from the truth coach's  like B ST Clair and S Hart got more friendly's and financial support than the foreign coach's and they still got there buts kick.

There is no false notion here. We have had foreign coaches into TT from the 60s to just recently with Sainfeit. Only one has been successful. Beenie Man.  Gally was the only local coach on the brink of taking the national team to the WC. That is another story. But sometimes a foreign coach is good. Sometime a local coach is good. We eh doing anything different from what the US is doing in terms of selecting a coach. They have local local coaches and they have had foreign coaches. What the US has over us is an abundance of resources. Resources that they can have a fulfledged  academy. You don't hear coaches not getting paid and all that non-sense.
There you go again with your false notion people come to America and see how successful they are with all that  money and confuse the 2 and say if TT had all that money we will be successful too  :bs: All that oil money TT had and what they have to show for it "nothing" Jamaica will always outshine TT on the world stage because they are organized and they strive for profection  the U S A have something that TT does not have professionalism the league may not be that good but it is a professional league the coach's may not be that good but he's a professional coach the players may not be that good but they are professional players TT is run by amateurs the players the coach's the administration is all a bunch amateurs giving a TT coach money etc is a waste of time they could only screw it up because they are amateurs look at all the money that was spent on B St Clair and S Hart and look how much licks we got from that G Cummings had a good football philosophy but because he was a amateur he failed.

Breds, you so anti Trini, is a waste of time trying to argue with you. Our priority is to see about the locals first. Players and coaches. That does not mean we  should not include our foreign-born children. We have been doing it in the past.We will continue to do it in the future.  Who do you think contacted Birchall to play for Trini. It was DL. And we have used others since then. Some have rejected us(Bobby Zamora and Bostock). Hooray for Jamaica if they outshine us. I give them their dues. We have lot's in common but we are  two different peas in a pod. We think one way, they think the other. All of us don't think and do things the same. Right now the number ONE priority is to get rid DJW. People at home who could influence the stakeholders in TT football should not wait for election to influence the outcome. They should be doing it now.
While I agree that DJW must go you are missing the big picture changing the president is not going to solve the problem not paying players and coach's is been going on for donkey years not getting teams prepared for tournaments is nothing new the problem is much bigger than DJW nobody is going to spend there money on failing organization that has no accountability .

M W Ling , K Julien , J Garcia , C Benny , T Emmanuel and S Gomez

Pappy has been in and around (training, Tallman?). Julien is in the mix. Judah Garcia merits being in and around as often as possible. For Woo Ling it is a question of career management. He needs to do more and in the right environments to merit a senior national team call up. Ah not giving him even ah "in and around" rating. Plain talk.

Regarding Shannon Gomez, it might not hurt DL to ask Patrick Viera a few questions and then place that conversation against what he sees currently. Definitely merits inquiry.

Che Benny? Not yet.

Yuh left out some other names doh. Dem fellas not yuh friends?

It is unfortunate that the national team does not have another friendly in this fifa time window. They need more games to asses new and fringe players. It would have been nice to have a game where Greg and the new keeper split time. England, US, Mexico all playing 2 games. We played one game we were on the back foot for the most. We need more games.
It does not matter how much friendly's DL get he is not going to play the younger players because he is to scared to use them DL is a waste of time.

ffisback, DJW running(ruining) football at this moment. This is going to be the way until elections. DL is trying his best with a diabolical situation. Until we get a new president, and get some people with deep pockets to support him, nothing will change. So if DL leave who do you think will coach the team? You think he will bring back Hart?
Anybody who thinks getting rid of DJW is going to solve TTFF problems is living in a dream world anybody who takes over TTFF is going to have the same problem the federation is broke .Atleast he could get other country's federations to pay for our friendly's the problem is much bigger than DJW.


Bringing back SH is a backward step the team would go back to playing scramble football under DL the team is playing much better defensively the problem is the team is still playing scramble football. I would not hire a Trinidadian to coach the team it will have to be somebody that we can afford I think Z Vanes and F Maturana was good.

Vranes and Maturana??? How may times has Vranes coached our team. He has always run against the TTFA president.  Jack always used him as care taker. Maturana was TT coach. He was a patient guy. He tried to instill some discipline structure. But again when is time to get friendlies, Jack always come up with something to full his pocket. At the same time we never played Colombia. He was a former coach there. He never tried to get Ven. or Ecuador. I have nothing against foreign coaches, but I think if you could bend backward to give a foreign coach all the resources that he demands, why the hell you can't do it for a local coach.
[/b]The realty is only Vanes and Maturana would put up with the BS that goes on in TT another foreign coach would tell them idiots to like there balls and with no money I don't think we have much of a choice. J Warner used Vanes because he was able to get decent results with out spending much money which is something he could not get with local coach's and when TT finally defeated the U S A in a WCQ in 2008 that was 1 of the best moments as a TT football fan Maturana record speak for itself.

People in TT continue use this false notion that instead of spending money and resources on a foreign coach they could get the same result if they spend on a local coach that could not be furthest from the truth coach's  like B ST Clair and S Hart got more friendly's and financial support than the foreign coach's and they still got there buts kick.

How could you with a straight face say he doesn"t bring younger players into the team?
Giving a man a 5 minute sweat then not using him again is not giving somebody a chance that means DL does not know what he's doing that's why he should be fired.

How many players fall into that category? Who and when? Or is that you have one particular player in mind?

But let me play, five (5) minutes in football could make or break you, not so? And, 5 minutes on the pitch doesn't happen in isolation from 80 minutes of practice, ent?

Truth is, yuh touching on something I've been thinking about as well, but it likely indicates not that he doesn't know what he is doing, but that he knows what he needs NOW. Up to those players to find a place to improve in the meantime. If I'm reading you correctly, yuh might have to consider the position the player plays.

Once the WCQ was over it was time for the rebuilding phrase the truth is DL is to scared to give the younger players a chance that's why he is only giving them 5 minutes a game its a waste of time having him around any longer.

Has any Trinidadian coached or been involved in coaching at a level similar or even close to what Dennis Lawrence was exposed to at Wigan, Everton and Belgium?
Its 1 thing to be learning to coach in a environment like that and another thing to actually coach in a environment like that 2 different things.

Joevin recommits to National Team
TTFA Media


Trinidad and Tobago’s German-based professional Joevin Jones has sent an early signal to national team head coach Dennis Lawrence on his availability for the upcoming international friendly with Iran in Tehran.

Jones opted out of the previous friendly against Thailand at the last minute, forcing Lawrence to enter the match without a replacement, citing personal reasons for his withdrawal.

Jones is now ready to return to international duty for the T&T National Team which is preparing for the 2019 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

“Myself and Dennis had a long chat and we had a good communication as two professionals and grown men. He understands the situation I was in and where I’m coming from. I paid the price for it. Now I am fully committed to the National Senior Team and available for selection again,” Jones told TTFA Media on Wednesday.

Iran climbed three spots to #30 on the October FIFA World rankings. Both teams will meet at the Azadi Stadium in Tehran on November 15th. Iran deleted Bolivia 2-1 in their last friendly on October 16th while T&T is coming off a 2-0 win over United Arab Emirated and a 1-0 loss to Thailand.
I hope this kid is not stupid to believe he can get away with the same crap he did in Seattle if he don't want to end up like another B Rahim he better put his carrier first instead of running back to TT to play in any stupid lil friendly  they call you to play for.

Trinidad and Tobago roster named for Iran Friendly
TTFA Media


Trinidad and Tobago Men’s Team head coach Dennis Lawrence announced his roster for the upcoming International Friendly against Iran in Tehran on November 15th.

At a media briefing today at the Ato Boldon Stadium, the squad was announced and it includes National Under 20 Men’s Team forward Isaiah Lee who is currently in Bradenton, Florida with the T&T Under 20 team.

why you say that

I trying to figure that out, also. And who is he reffering to specifically?
Its quite clear D Lawrence does not know what he is doing I don't know how long is his contract but he should not be coaching this team next year.

T&T sink US Virgin Islands 3-0.
By Ryan Hamilton-Davis (Newsday).


National U20s end campaign with a win as:

BOUNCING BACK from an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the United States junior team, the T&T Under 20 squad mowed down the US Virgin Islands yesterday in a 3-0 trouncing at their final group match at the CONCACAF U20 Championships.

The win comes as redemption to their brutal 6 - 1 loss against the United States, and gave them an added three points to put the team in second place in their group with nine overall points, but it was not enough to take them to the next stage, as only the group winners would qualify to advance.

Nikel Orr opened the scoring in the first minute of play,at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida, capitalising on an incisive left field pass which outpaced Virgin Island defenders. Orr placed the ball to the right side of the goal, leaving goalie Connor Querrard flat-footed.

The team tried to reproduce the magic for the remainder of the first half by making more attacking plays on the left field, but were unable to get the same result.

The pace picked up in the second half with T&T dominating play, and the Virgin Islands doing the majority of defending.

The defenders’ resolve was eventually broken in the 77th minute, when substitute Isiah Lee put the ball past the keeper once again, after it was fed to him from a cross ball.

Minutes before the final whistle, midfielder Che Benny also beat the keeper.

He shot a rocket from the top of the 18-yard box, which was too hot for the goalie to handle. The ball slipped through Querrard’s fingers for a third goal. The under-20 team will return home on Monday.

watch him come on in the 70th-ish there when his team finally equalized to make it 1-1. seem like his introduction was a slightly more defensive than attacking move. Looks like he play the same position as molino - behind the forwards -  except I would say he puts in better tackles than molino and reads the defensive end of the game much better...and is obviously playing at a much higher level.
Imagine a world where he coming on for molino in a T&T shirt. * wake myself up*.
J Bostock and K Molino are 2 different type of players K Molino is a attacking midfielder while J Bostick is a box to box English type player he's the same type of player as K Hyland and A Boucaud but on a higher level.

Right now the youth players who just played in the U-20 WC qualifiers should be in a U-23 team. Getting ready for next year's PanAm games and Olimpics qualification. The TTFA should be grooming the U-23 for the future. The U-23 is basically the TT B team. Ask Andre Baptiste if TTFA has plans for team. He has close relationship with DJW.
All that means nothing if D Lawrence  not giving the youths a chance.
