Football / Re: TTFA set to appoint obscure Belgian; ex-Bangladesh coach
« on: December 16, 2016, 12:55:58 PM »
You guys need to stop hating on the new coach.

There is nothing we can do about it.  Do some independent research on him and see what kind of coach he is.  He is pretty decent and he is very qualified.  I loved Harty, but in all honesty, based on the team's results over the last 12 months, and the apparent discord within the team, he had to go.

In an ideal world, we would have a coach in Hart and a team of players who are fully behind him, but that ship has sailed and we need to stop with this negativity and hate.

DJW is an arrogant dictator, but WE voted him in after crying down Tim Kee......and we had Tim Kee after crying down Jack Warner.

Flex did a pretty decent interview with the man.............just give him a blasted chance and judge him from that!!

Well said! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Beside 2006 qualification have we finished higher than 6th in the Hex?

Fast and furious: Saintfiet drops Kenwyne to go for faster Warriors attack
Lasana Liburd  Wednesday 14 December 2016 Global Football, National Football, Volley 74 Comments

For now, Saintfiet believes that Trinidad and Tobago’s best chance of getting results is with speed upfront and Jones, a classic target man and set piece weapon, does not fit in.


“I want a lot of speed upfront and space to run into on the counter attack,” said Saintfiet. “But I do not want to say too much because [the technical staff of] Suriname and Haiti can read what I say.”

So... Kenwyne is... too slow??? Not fast enough???  ???

Another lie, kenwyne is one of the fastest on the team... watch the thread with his results of the beep test in England.. SANTHIEF is a liar and puppet..
??? ::) :frustrated:

TTFA partners with Scotiabank for Grassroot project.
T&T Guardian Reports.

The T&T Football Association (TTFA) has entered into a partnership agreement for the staging of a one-month TTFA/Scotiabank Grassroots programme to be held at various venues throughout the country, starting August 2.

It is the third year the TTFA will be staging the grassroot clinics and Peter Ghany, Director, Scotiabank Foundation emphasized that the Scotiabank Foundation was emphatic about the opportunity to be part of it.

“Most importantly Scotiabank is very proud to be part of this incredible grassroots programme one of our main areas of focus is to work with and develop programs for young people in our communities,” Ghany said.

He noted: “We’ve spent the past few years working with the Scotiabank Kiddy Cricket Programme and we we’ve seen the incredible results coming out of that so we’re very excited about what the TTFA is doing with this programme especially going into the rural areas trying to reach kids who will most importantly get the opportunity to undergo such training.”

“By going out to these rural areas and working with these children, giving them opportunities to occupy their spare time, discover their passion and possibly even getting them to a level where they can eventually represent a national team is something we readily support” Ghany added.

The Scotiabank Foundation will also provide additional support through marketing initiatives and infrastructural support through the grassroots programme. TTFA Technical Director Muhammad Isa expressed gratitude for Scotiabank’s support, saying 

“I am delighted about this partnership and contribution today as it shows that the TTFA is on the right foot forward in terms of development.”

“The future of our football is with our youth. This grassroots programme for children 6-14 years old will go a long way in developing our football. We want to establish an elite program for players under 14 and this is a programme which will enable us to find players for our next set of  national youth teams.

The TTFA will have clinics at the Cyd Gray Sporting Complex and Canaan, Bon Accord in Tobago, Morvant/Laventille, Eddie Hart Ground in Tacarigua, Ojo Road in Sangre Grande, Tabaquite Recreation Ground and Barrackpore Recreation Grounds. Invitations will go out the various Primary Schools and Coaching Schools in each district” Isa explained.

“The programme will entail teaching the basic fundamentals of the game and having the kids involved in small sided games. We will establish a database of players based on our evaluations from which we can then use as reference for our future national teams” Isa added.

Grassroots Schedule:

August 2nd, Cyd Gray Sporting Complex, Roxoborough
August 4th, Canaan, Bon Accord
August 8th, Morvant Recreation Ground
August 10th, Eddie Hart Grounds, Tacarigua
August 12th, Ojoe Road Grounds, Sangre Grande
August 17th Tabaquite Recreation Ground
August 19th, Barrackpore Recreation Ground
It's 2 weeks away, and conflicts with the THA's summer sports camp at the same venue....

I know this article would cause issues. But that is his opinion.  It have Vorbe, Sanon, Auguste, Francillion(Haiti), Schall, Kamperveen, Olmberg, Zebida(Suriname). No disrespect to Shalrie, if he is on that list, then Cummings(Concacaf MVP), Archibald(NASL MVP), Deleon(Concacaf and NASL MVP), Steve David(NASL MVP). But the list could grow to 25 or fifty. The guys who played in the WC and regional tournaments in the more recent past will always have the nod over the older guys when there was no TV around.

Olmberg was a SERIOUS player.  Left footed central defender and captain for Suriname and nobody could get past him.  Not even Steve David and crew.
Borgia and Entingh stand out in my memory also. Just ask Veron about Entingh... ;D

Is there a Competition and Tournament Committe in TTFA? I don't think so. However, the decision makers got this wrong in my humble opinion. It was Valtrin's home game, their supporters stormed the field, they were responsible for security and therefore should forfeit the game.
Ah wonder who runs Valtrin?

The 26 hour discography from A to W has started on ... It's on!!!!!

Ah in Paisley Park! :)

Soccer in Tobago is on a path that leads nowhere. We're losing players faster than we can find/make them. Don't have a solution, but there needs to be a foundation i.e. opportunities for youths in a formal setting as youth league(s) for starters

Meaning what? They're abandoning the game or going elsewhere?
Yep. They're leaving the game and falling into a black hole.

Elie made clarifications on the radio today. Said he has observed training in Tobago and that he has made fervent efforts to incorporate the Tobago-based players, but these efforts have been frustrated  (likely by the usual suspects: resources and getting things done ... I did not hear a specific reason offered).

Seems the plan or intention is to pull a few from Tobago rather than  to integrate all from 'Bago with all from T'dad and see who can hang.

My view: picking winners is just as effective as tossing a coin.

There is a group of players from Tobago currently in training for screening. They've been in training since February. Players were being screened from January via the Tobago Zone SSFL. For Tobago, this is a step in the right direction (pre-screening training sessions rather than one-off surprise dates). Hopefully this will open the Tobago player's eyes to what is possible...
RG, when the coach mentioned the players they've seen, he's talking about from the screening a year ago. The Tobago player is playing uphill on a sloped field. The national pool were training 3 times per week for about 4-6 weeks, and then went to 1 day a week sometime in August. They continue to train together and still haven't brought in the fellows that they selected from Tobago to be included in the initial pool.
From my experience, the following words still resonate, " we have enough strikers in Trinidad, we looking for a central midfielder and goalkeeper. We'll have you as an alternate". I'll say no more.

U-17 footballers aiming for India 2017.
T&T Newsday Reports.

A 40-member squad of under-17 footballers is in deep training with their aim to make it to the age-group World Cup in India next year .

Coach Ken Elie is very confident his squad of under-17s will top their Caribbean Football Union qualification leg and become one of the four CONCACAF teams for the 24-nation 2017 FIFA Under-17 World Cup in September next year Elie said he had been preparing his squad since June last year.

He said he screened his squad between June and December last and put the players through specific training, both technical and physical .

Elie said his squad resumed training in January, “and there are four very special players in the squad, and we also have a couple of outstanding Secondary Schools Football League along with W Connection player John Paul Rochford who was on training with Barclays Premier League team Manchester City.”

He noted that it will be a difficult process to name his final squad. Elie hop;es to have a live-in camp in Tobago and also have a further look at some players from the sister island who I have already identified from a previous trip .

He said he and his team of coaches are working hand-inhand with the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association to get the best possible preparations for the team .
.... and the beat goes on....

I'm reading this thing and it's rife with pettiness and ego... I, we, me do this and them ent doing nutten. How is organizing a football competition the responsibility of the MOS? Further if the National football governing body doesn't sanction the League, then all participants can possibly face a ban. If they have sanctioned it, then they would have done their part.... sigh.... What is the MOS doing for sports in Tobago? How does Tobago benefit from the WPL? How many of our players are "exposed" to development...  ;D ;D ;D... listen... alyuh have a happy father's day eh!

Judging from the last 2 games we played and no goals from the past 5 games for T&T, I predict.

T&T 0 v Guatemala 1
Cuba 1 v T&T 1
Mexico 2 v T&T 0

Hart seems like he just cant go up to the next level of coaching.

What I don't get is, the T&T national team has been inactive months between games and what do our coaches do in the meantime?

They go to local games, but do they actually try to improve their coaching?
Sound like a play station boss ;D
