I thought Latapy's biggest contract was 7,000 pounds/ week when he was with Rangers. He may not even be making that now :-X

Excerpt from Evening Mail article.
Heskey wins Bruce's backing

Nov 18 2004

By Colin Tattum, evening Mail
"The first four, five, six games I thought Emile was terrific. "But he has struggled lately because it is difficult on your own up the top. We've gone that way because of the injuries we've had and that's not helped him.

"When we pair him with Dwight Yorke, they are both very similar. They both want to come to the ball and that's when you need one to complement the other, to go the other way.

"Having said that, if you look at the Everton game, Emile carried the biggest threat and went closest to scoring until Yorkie had that chance at the end."

"Let's hope he can produce another spark for us and give Emile a hand. He's also the type who can complement Dwight and the way he likes to play.

"Dwight's not like he was 10 years ago when he'd go in behind, we all know that, but Clinton can give us such an option."


Indeed sponsors aren't flooding into put their money into the PFL, which is why they are floundering

 With the size of the stadia in Europe, and much lower salaries pre-1970's gate receipts could be substantial. However, gate receipts alone are not going to sustain a pro outfit in a country the size of T&T. As such sponsor money becomes even more essential than it is for the clubs on the aforementioned list. t would be nice to have a club be completely self sufficient, but it's highly improbable. Sponsors are essential.

So in a situation where such sponsorship isn't available, what alternatives are there? Could it be that we're looking at the wrong models :-\

All ah we here have links to Trinidad and Tobago; but realy I could care less about Canada's u17 team!!!!!! So if the issue is about we team that is one thing but frankly I eh give afork about the Canadian u17 team.
Alberta, Mr Hart is a long serving member of our Forum, and I always have an interest in his project. I also wish him well.
Aren't you making a contribution to Canada through your professional endeavour. Doesn't that interest you as much as or more than the need to strenghthen the corresponding "sector" in TT? I want you to succed as well, bro.
Mr. Hart I hope you succeed in your current project!

Tobago Utd, most discipline Pro Team
Friday, April 8th 2005

Despite a very poor performance in the 2004 Trinidad and Tobago Professional Football League, Tobago United, the island only professional team had the satisfaction of copping the Most Disciplined Team award.

Head coach Peter Granville received the award on behalf of his club at the League's Awards Ceremony in Trinidad last Saturday.

The club which finished in the cellar position on the eight team standing received $116,000 as their prize monies.

The club under 20 outfit also mounted the prize rostrum to receive their prize for finishing third in their division while their prolific goal scorer Noel Williams collected the prize for the most goals. He scored 32 goals for the season.

His computer on de blink ... it musbe overheatin' :o

brazil an argentina easy to say but language barrier go realll hinder progress i think they should go to holland or even portugal where english can at least be comprehensivly translated

Of those countries you've mentioned, Portugal was the destination of choice. Latas, Leonson and Marcelle had some success there. What happen to the rest? Latas and Marcelle move to Britain anyway, why? Was Portugal less than ideal? or ...... ??? :-\ ???

De hidden message dat is being sent is not a fair one and doh play yuh dunno wha ah talking about. Is de same crap about who protest about John D and Sando Tech etc. being out of de SSFL. Is ah school league and school requires academics...all dem time John D and Sixth Form was fielding over age players, dat get sweep under de rug conveniently. Somehow de story get twisted dat certain schools and classes of people cyah take de jamming and find ah way to make de football league easier fuh demself even though the pop distribution in de schools in question is more representative of us as a nation. Oh gosh allyuh is 2005. Stop living in a fantasy world.

Sir ... with respect to John D over aged players, what years are you talkin 'bout?

The reason I was asking is because that time was during the English League season, unless they had a winter break. I left TT in August '82, and know for sure That game wasn't played when I was home. .... Try some Gingko, it may help  ;D ;D

What's the right position? Could Barnes, Batson and company not all be on the wrong side here? If so, the fact that they lend there support to RA would not change that! However, if dey right,den I doh want to be right!  ;D ;D

Pat Jennings was in goal, later that year he would star in goal for N. Ireland in the 1982 WC.

Fellas check dah date. When in '82 was dah game played? Could it have been '83?

In related news, I was informed by LP that Ron Atkinson was NEVER appointed and stripped of the job. There was a short-list drawn up by the Technical Committee, of which Atkinson was one,and the pros and cons of each candidate were discussed by the Committee AND players' input was sought. The Tech Committe THEN selected the candidate who they felt were the BEST and went with Beenhakker.

So was LP less than forthcoming, oooooorrrrrrrr was he just "unaware" that RA was offered the position. According to Shaun's other article, RA seems to contradict LP's statement. Hmmmmmmm :-\ :-\

The points total required would always change. The next game is a six-pointer, and it's vital for us to successfully navigate our way thru that one. Failure to do so would result in less permutations in support of our qualification. >:(
