Football / Re: Andre Toussaint nets treble in 7-0 W Connection win.
« on: May 01, 2005, 02:06:55 PM »

Toussaint scored in the 56th, 81st (penalty) and 86th minutes to join clubmate Gefferson Goulart as the league’s top scorer with seven goals each.
St Lucian Earl Jean, the team’s captain added a pair of his own, in the fourth and 59th minutes while midfielder Brenton De Leon (51st minute) and Goulart (85th) were the other scorers for the “Savonetta Boys” who now have maximum 18 points.

Early and late goals kill Granno boys. Plenty questions for his defence too - 14 goals conceded in 3 games wow!!
1st half ... 4th min
2nd half ... 51st, 56th, 59th (3 in 9 min), 81st, 85th, 86th (3 in 5 min)

Holder was de U-20 Goalkeeper

Chinese soccer striving to survive
By Chen Xiangfeng (China Daily)

The next time China's football team can play in a major international tournament is four years away at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

China's Olympic team pose for a group photo. [newsphoto]
What makes things more miserable is that the Olympic appearance results from home advantage - the host team gets an automatic spot without having to play any qualifiers.

Everyone can take a deep breath because China do not have to fight with Asian rivals like they did before.

The world's most populous country failed to qualify for this year's Athens Games and last month lost out in the race to qualify for the 2006 World Cup to unfancied Kuwait.

With a footballing history of more than 2,000 years, China's first World Cup appearance came only two years ago.

Its World Cup debut was tarnished by the loss of all three games in the group stage and failure to score a single goal.

Fans are afraid that they will have to wait for China to host the event before they make another World Cup appearance.

Humiliating knock-out

China's 7-0 thrashing of Hong Kong last month was not enough to send them through to the next round of Asian World Cup qualifiers.

Kuwait won the group and advanced by routing Malaysia 6-1, giving Kuwait a one goal better goal difference than China.

China's head coach Arie Haan was immediately released from his contract with the China Football Association (CFA) and returned home, marking another failure in the CFA's policy of choosing foreign coaches.

Only Bora Milutinovic achieved brief success for China by leading the team to the 2002 World Cup finals.

A longer wait is simply unbearable for fans who have lost interest, and are running out of tolerance with domestic football.

Even Haan, a midfielder in the Dutch team of the 1970s that reached two World Cup finals, said the recent turmoil in China's top professional league played a role in the national team's slump.

In October, seven of the 12 clubs in China's Super League, including Dalian, Beijing, Shanghai, Qingdao, Sichuan, Shenzhen and Liaoning, commonly known as G-7, united to challenge the CFA, urging the association to reform the league.

The G-7, headed by seven-time league champions Dalian Shide, criticized the CFA for lack of transparency and acute corruption.

"Of course it had an influence on the national team, the players," said Haan.

"A lot of players are not being paid, a lot of players don't want to play because they're not satisfied with the circumstances, the referees."

The 10-year-old professional league, replaced by the Super League this year, was hampered by lackluster performances and poor commercial success, despite heavy investment from club runners and the government.

Both Beijing and Dalian threatened to boycott league matches in October while Liaoning and Shenzhen struggled to pay their players on time.

With the recent drug scandal involving Liaoning's goalkeeper Liu Jiansheng, who is believed to be connected to social drug use and match fixing, China's football is on the edge of collapse.

Asian Cup emotion

But Haan insisted he had something to feel proud of.

"This year, we only lost two matches. In the final of the Asia Cup we lost to Japan, and afterwards we lost to Kuwait," he was quoted as saying by the Xinhua news agency.

"That should not be considered a bad result."

His remarks should be considered partly right.

Compared to a whole year's chaos and disappointment, 2004 Asian Cup left fans with some fond memories, though not the final against Japan.

China was unbeaten in the group matches and then gave fans a surprise semi-final victory by beating favourite's Iran in a penalty shootout.

But title hopes were dashed by arch-rivals Japan who rallied to beat China 3-1 in the final.

Some fans refused to leave the stadium after the match, protesting the result by shouting and throwing bottles and garbage.

More than 6,000 security staff were deployed in and around the stadium, with riot police, soldiers and SWAT teams in position to prevent crowd trouble. The tough measures proved insufficient and some fans vented their wrath by attacking a vehicle and rioting.

But runner-up is still an excellent result for China as the team advanced to the final for only the second time. It lost 2-0 to Saudi Arabia in the 1984 final.

Looking to the West

With hopes of reaching the 2006 World Cup vanished, CFA officials are vowing to take action - and hope hosts Germany can offer some help.

A specially-assembled group, called the 2008-Star Team consisting of 27 young and promising Chinese football players, will undergo a two-year-long training session at Bad Kissingen.

The talented 27, selected from the nation's best youth players aged between 15-19, are expected to form the core of the 2008 Olympic team.

Eckhard Krautzun, a former German Olympic team member with a 35-year-long coaching career, has been appointed head coach.

This is not the first time China has sent it's footballers overseas for training.

Besides, many top players are beginning to see Europe as a way to turn round their careers.

China's Footballer of the Year Zheng Zhi,the national team's playmaker, has just completed trials at Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin. Teenaged defender Du Wei from Shanghai Shenhua has been in contact with a number of German clubs while another international midfielder, Zhao Junzhe from Liaoning, has received an invitation from Scottish Premier League giants Glasgow Celtic.

Young goalkeeper Song Junmin from Tianjin and national team captain Li Weifeng are also planning to move abroad.

Women's hope

China's women footballers have also struggled to find form.

The Athens Games began in a disastrous 8-0 rout to Germany but the year ended offering a glimmer of hope as the U-19 youth team were runners-up in the World Women's Championship.

It is hope for the future of the women's national team, who won silver at the Atlanta Olympics and finished runners-up to the US at the 1999 World Cup, after losing their shine due to the retirement of veterans.

They were knocked out in the quarter-finals of the 2003 Women's World Cup, and then at this year's Athens Olympics the team suffered their biggest setback after being eliminated from the group phase. Its 8-0 loss to Germany is the worst in the team's history.

Head coach Zhang Haitao resigned immediately after the Games and the women's team is still looking for a new manager.

With the youth side achieving an unexpected second-placed result, head coach Wang Haiming become one of the favourites to take over the job from Zhang.

Whoever will take the helm, it is believed some emerging stars from the U-19 team will be added to the national team, carrying hopes of helping China return to the world's elite.

refresh my memory, when did glasgow leave china? and when is dwarika attacthed to connection?

Ah neva see any article or press release saying dat dey were released by de Chinese clubs, but when Dwarika signed wit Beijing Guoan (last March), de contract was only for one year. Ah guess dey chose not to renew it. Since Dwarika was wit W-Connection before he went tuh China, he probably jes fall back een.

Glasgow was also on a one-year contract wit Guangzhou Xiangxue. He broke his leg last August in a friendly against Guatemala and I doh know if he ever went back China.

Last season, ah think the China League ended in dispute. It seemed that sometime around October - November they cancelled the season. There was also some concern that teams were losing lots of money. Whether or not those events had any effect on their contracts, I doh know.

Ok i am assuming this is the first batch of local players called up for leo to look at. .But Leo Beenhakker need to take a look at the player actually playing himself not rely on Mr phillips look how he call back his son quick quick quick what the irish league over or he failed to break into in the first team

but a descent squad overall.

Why you so bwoy!  ::)

nationalize him!

 ;D ;D ;D Ah like dah one ... hahahaha.


It used to be de opposite back in the day. Didin't make it any less wrong then either. Just pointing out that you're should be the best players regardless of race or creed...but it hasn't always been where it'a been an all black team. Back in de days of Raffie Knowles, Stollmeyer and dem, a black player fuh T&T would be like a fly on a pow fuss de team was white.

I think an appropriate question would be why the "white" players stopped playing. When Shamrocks Queen Park, Luton town etc. disappeared from top flight football, so did the vast majority of "white" players, by and large. When I played in the late 70's thru early '80's, we had a couple white players on our team. They were, however, English contractors. There was a "white" fella who played for the national team around 81 - 82. His name was Wayne (Joseph may have been his surname), Maple and Klans man who was a central defender. He played with Reynold George, when more than half the players were from Maple ( then a second div. team).
The short is that when there were quality players playing top flight TT football and worthy of selection, I thought there were more likely than not to get a look. :-\

Two questions:

how do you think Leo will go about fulfilling this mandate?

What support is in place to make this mandate a reality?

I think he is going to use universally available technology to bring our analysis and instruction out of the "dark ages".

The support is primarily in TT dollars  :-\

Doc it was before the 82 World Cup.

I remember becz a few months later Jennings looked so good for NI.
especially against hosts Spain, when they shocked them 1-0 and knocked them out of the WC.

Jennings was the essence of composure that day.

So the game was between Jan and May of 1982...prob. during break in the Eng. season..


The above quote was from "Alyuh know this fact about Ron Laforest"

So VB ah was right, that the Arsenal game was not and could not have been played in '82


I was speaking to graeme Rodriguez a few days back.

He mentioned that he played for the Sr. team back in 1985-86.

He said that he played vs. Harts (Scotland), Arsenal and vs. a Tobago II :)

I didn't have the heart to tell him the last one probably doh count.. :)

In case u r interested TT lost the Ars. game 3-0.
I wasn't even aware of this, but back in dem days, I used to get scant sports info in Canada, yuh boy was livingin f^%$%^& Guelph, Ontario.


and the score wasn't 3-2 after all.... or that was another game? ;D

. If this is based on popurality, then Russel is the man. He was more consistent, had a bigger impact, and is getting ready to close off his playing career in style and beging a new one as a coach.

By showing how Russel was consistent, would go a long way in supporting your position. :-\

Fenwick wasn't the coach for that game, Ricky Hill was.

terry coached de team and put things in place for ricky hill. Hill only had the team for a few weeks before that CONCACAF club game

The game vs Chicago Fire was played March 2004. Jabloteh won the PFL for the 2nd year running in 2003. Hill was the coach that took them to that game and was replaced by Rutter after the 2004 season began.

Speaking to Eve after de game, he said that Fenwick was a great coach and that st clair's methods are "different........very different"

So i dont think that it was to do with a dependancy on foreighners but choosing who is de mest for de team!
