Football / Re: FIFA suspends the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association
« on: September 25, 2020, 01:05:51 PM »
The resulting actions by FIFA is questionable given the withdrawal of the court case. The deadline given  seems rather inconsequential and their resulting decision appears to be an effort to:
 save face
- assert power and control
- deflect from their own alleged involvement with the HoF scandal
- save another face for DJW
- an attempt to shame and ridicule

You know what? There is a statement that what does not kill you make you stronger. If I was a national player, my focus now would be on such a rigid training and development that woe to all the Caribbean nations that did not have the " frighing balls" to support TnT withah vote of solidarity. Yes let the 4ks laugh cause when this suspension is lifted we should wreck doom on all ah dem.
And to the jokers who trying to usurp and destabilize at home shame!!!!!
Our strength must come from this adversity
So I am not looking at dioom and gloom but looking at how the resilience and psyche of our players should begin approaching this game of football- let this be a lesson - no one gives you anything - all man like to kick your arse when you are down- Go practice train and come back with a lot to prove.  Internally this is the time to really focus on program and player development - get in some strength trying
- recreate some zonal rivalries - North Soth east west and Tobago
Recall in the 60's whenall the world and the mighty USA was giving Cuba blows it was Sir Eric Williams who stood up for Cuba and denounced the BS-  we have a lot to be proud of as a nation and those who are working to shame us should look in the mirror and then go hide Fk them all- now is anyone who truly is patriotism and have a love and anything to do with building the development and growth of our football to come out and organize community training sessions to mobilize our players-
All them fracking star boys like BS does only talk - some who in politics does only talk all them with overseas experience now is your time to form Community training sessions to spread hope fight and an unrelenting desire  to unleash ah force when they lift this suspension.
Let's not take this lying down like a 'drunken whore' who hast lost the ability to move.
The time is now for each player to work twice as hard for the day when this is over- is WAR on the Caribbean brethens and whomever in our path. Now we have something to prove - we engo take this lying down
And to   Fck withHoF go back to Halsey Stadium - let FIFA pay the fracking bills for HOF  liike they did for Centre of Excellence - doh beg- as a country we does. Eg too much for all things foreign- Better yet let the government take the facility and use it as a health treatment facility or a centre for therapy he or a new St Anns facility for the nutcases we have running around pretending they know how to run football in TnT

The report concluded, “US firms often say corruption is an obstacle to FDI (foreign direct investment), particularly in government procurement, since TT’s procurement processes are not transparent.”

When a certain party was in power the process was evident to all they cronies - construction companies etc

Did we really need a dedicated HoF? Could upgrades not have been done to the Has,et Crawford Stadium?
Could funds not have been better deployed on paying off debts to players and coaches and divert into operational costs to enhance programming as oppose to new capital costs?

Are the entrusted leaders just dunce or greedy?

Let's pray that figure heads and puppets of corruptive  elements at all levels be eradicated- let's pray for competence intelligence and visionary leaders

Let's pray for transparency - let's pray that FIFA would cease from brokering backdoor deals and provide a model of good governance.

Let's pray that what appears to be Normal  is free of an agenda reeking of
 Self indulgence

Yes and let's pray for those who are suffering and paying the price for all the bs- our players, our youths, our nation- once more let's pray from all forms of foreign domination.

Football / Re: William Wallace Thread
« on: September 20, 2020, 08:47:45 AM »
"Braveheart". The.eg d of WW

This type of engagement conducted by Wallace and his band of u tied followers  is  characterised by opportunistic tactics and the strategic use of  an outside conqueror promising deliverance from past atrocities- to a road paved with gold. Too good to be true.

This too reeks of backdoor deals not unlike previous administration- now this epic saga unfolds as to how promises were made- how a man who yearning for the national coach's position may have also be part of this  transaction.

How could a governing body- not do their due diligence to see if the " basket of goods could hold water?"

What we have here is another traversity of incompetence a saga of  sound and fury amounting to nothing. The greater good of TnT football is once more kicked and bounced around for those self seeking goals of a few.
The lineage and legacy of " W's" have run its course over the TTFA landscape- w " The lionheart" W- " The conqueror" W " The braveheart"

Indeed the English have landed and have played the peasants to civil disobedience corruption and doom- divided the nation and left it in tatters- All hail king Peter and his Prince Terry

The kingdom of FiFE -  A  rules again. A clever plot indeed. This is stuff for the movies- Get the popcorn showtime continues

« on: September 14, 2020, 09:10:26 AM »
According to Bassant, there is more to come. We will see what other evidence pops up.

Wallace and Look Loy kept it cool and did not bow to FIFA. They knew about the findings in the documentary and how it could lead to another FIFA scandal. This is the perfect leverage.

I guess that's why Hadad called the EGM. FIFA wanted Hadad and company to vote Wallace out so they would not have to suspend the TTFA. If FIFa suspended the TTFA, then they will look even more guilty. Hence voting Wallace out was the only way in their eyes to save face and sweep this issue under the rug.

This is what I will think will happen:

- FIFA agrees to negotiate with Wallace (Wallace wont accept anything more than removal of the NC)
- FIFA removes the NC
- FIFA throws DJW under the bus and continues to fight with Wallace

One thing is certain, DJW is quivering in his boots. He's supposed to release a statement today. I dont know what he can really say at this point. He'll probably say the evidence is fabricated and/or it was obtained illegally. He might probably say that he got permission from FIFA and that they knew about the dealings. If he's stupid enough to say this, FIFA wont hesitate to throw his butt under the bus. This week is going to be interesting. Grab your popcorn

Some legal mind help me with this -Even if the evidence was obtained illegally  and if the allegations are proven to be factual
Then how can one be  absolved from of wrong doing?  They may elude a lawful conviction but the fact will remain that they were party to what transpired - is this not the case?

There is an apparent disconnect  with your inference and what was intended -  You have jumped to a conclusion and made alabeling remark based on your inference- Is your thinking  that derived at that conclusion-  gong to the Hyatt  is akin to having a conference and sorting out all the intricacies of numbers- that's what good logical thinking folks would do .

Don't be so quick to jump to conclusions Andy to label someone - if the woman has the answers then a minister could. Offer and be guided by expertise-As should all good thinking logical people.

Don't know where some people get off on making erroneous statements.  Why would a government subsidize professional teams who are in the business to make money?

Amateur sports yes-

If an owner is not capable or does not have the finances to  operate a professional team, then they need to pack up shop.

Past government have made a shamble of sports subsidizes - Life Sport program under one A R- 
I don't believe nor have I seen any concrete or tangible evidence  of  government alignment with the business of TTFA or the appointment of a normalization committee.

The politics that appears to exist seems to be with FIFA and the  elected  leadership-  Let's stick to the issue rather than deflecting or inflicting aspirations on entities that have not proven to be involved in the decisions of FIFA.

Kamla from TnT could learn a lot from Kamala Harris whose mother was of Indian descent and whose father was Jamaican. Kamala identifies as Afro American- and speaks openly of that identity- see
" Kamala Harris- the unauthorized documentary

The maturity , the acceptance and the intellect Kamala Harris shows is sadly lacking from  those who strive to seek political gains through divisiness destabilization and dysfunctional politics.

Listen tosh real Kamala- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9XZ6bTsKIwI

Terry Fenwick: Pay us, please.
By Ian Prescott (T&T Express).

Yesterday’s Concacaf Zone opening round draw was as favourable as national senior team coach Terry Fenwick could have hoped for.

The Warriors drew Caribbean rivals Puerto Rico, Guyana, the Bahamas and St Kitts and Nevis in Group F at the draw for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup in Zurich, Switzerland. If T&T wins that preliminary group, a two-leg second round with the winner of Group A, containing El Salvador, is next. That second-round winner then plays the USA for an automatic World Cup spot. Qualifying begins in October and November.

“It looks pretty good. It looks favourable,” Fenwick mused after watching yesterday’s draw. But greater questions plagued his thoughts.

“I need to know that we have the finances and leadership to get us to a position that we can go out there and win,” the coach stated. “I don’t want October, to come around and we have to go into qualifying without money, without preparation, without getting the players together and getting a camp where we can work hard.”

The former England World Cup defender said the uncertainty of whether FIFA’S Normalisation Committee or the exiled William Wallace-led TTFA executive is in charge of football, is hampering the national men’s team programme.

“It’s been frustrating to say the least. I have not heard anything. When are they going to get up and running?” stated Fenwick—despite having reached out to local businessman Robert Hadad who FIFA made chairman of its Normalisation Committee, taking over the TTFA operations in March.

“Normalisation means getting back to normal. So, what happens next? What budget is available? Can we get a camp organised? What budget will be made available to bring in players from around the world to represent Trinidad and Tobago? And he can’t give me an answer.

“I am hoping somebody can untie Mr Hadad’s wrist so that he can start making a few decisions,” he added.

He also addressed the lack of financial support to his staff.

“When are they going to look after my staff and recognise that my staff... we haven’t been paid for eight months,” he declared.

Fenwick commended coaches Derek King, Keith Jeffrey, Clayton Ince, Keon Trim and Adrian Romain, and captain Basil Thomson, who have all worked behind the scenes without pay.

“We have done everything on not even a shoe-string budget,” he said, acknowledging the help given by Police Commissioner Gary Griffith and others, including Hadad who had provided some food to the players from his own company,

“For us to be competing in these tournaments, I need my staff looked after,” he continued, calling for a compromise between FIFA and the TTFA in the interest of football.

Fenwick also commended the Herculean effort put in by the group of local players he has been working with, most of whom are non-contracted.

“They are still turning up because they want to represent their country,” he said, “and they are being thrown under the bus, for want of better words, because of the internal politics here in Trinidad and Tobago.”

Fenwick is also hoping for a quick restart to local football but he hinted that if the local football politics are not sought out, a promising World Cup qualifying campaign may end before it begins.

“A collaboration may be wonderful at this stage so the kids on the street can see something happening that is favourable to them,” he said.

He probably could  pay his staff with all the alleged back door sponsorship deals

I await Nakhid's merited appointment to the Senate, sans or with parachute.

What qualifies him for such a posting? Parachute he at sea outta here- for a bright young man , he chose the wrong politics to align with- Get some moral and ethical backbone

The appointment would be based on the merits of UNC internal decision-making and political value rather than on one's bias against the UNC. We have long understood your position on matters UNC. Clearly you would prefer him clutching to life support in the Gulf of Paria, but he more than meets the criteria for seating in the Senate and contributing to the national debate (at least you acknowledge that somewhat).

The sole issue is whether the UNC directorate ultimately sees it that way, but there is no doubt that he should be a compelling candidate for the Senate, political maturation, electoral nurturing and policy contribution.

My assertion has really little to do with my alleged political affinity but more with moral ethical decisions- appointments should have some merit attached to it and some demonstrable competency.
In the same way when the late pm  Mr. Patrick  Manning won his election and appointed his wife as education minister thus creating a potential conflict of interest and nepotism.

Don't confuse my assertions with party preference - in a democracy it is very feasible and creditable to have an opposition that ensures accountability ant that the elected  officials govern with fatness and responsibility on behalf of the electorates-
However when you have an opposition party bend on dividing a nation with their discourse and acting in ways that could destabilize governance I will continue to express my displeasure at patronage appointments .
