Football / Re: Why has Marvin Oliver not been called up for training?
« on: October 02, 2007, 12:54:44 PM »
Well de coach being consistent.

Look at de Gold Cup squad.  Who on that team was over 30?  Trent Noel maybe?(me eh know)  MacFarlane? 

I never see Marvin Oliver play but always hear dat he have ability.  He obviously doin well in the PFL this season and kudos to him.  Sound like he doin all he can to stake his claim.  Hopefully it work out for him as far as his National team aspirations go. 

At the end of the day, the coach is the one who determines the kind of players he needs for his team.  What roles they will perform, what skill set they need to possess, what assets they bring to the team to help make the team better.  Maybe Marvin Oliver will fit that criteria for coach Rijsbergen one day.  Obviously at the moment he either doesn't or the coach feels there are other players who are more suitable because is not like de coach eh know who he is or never see him play.

In a way it is a good thing. We saying to the younger players that they should not waste their chances. Unfortunately a generation of players such as Jemmot, Oliver, Rahim etc. will be lost. But that IS the modern game. Sometimes players who don't make it could be a kind anti-inspiration too.

Well the coach knows best but when yuh watch Oliver play yuh really have to wonder....

They were supposed have it ready for this month. Trini, Jamaica, B'dos Caymans, Dutch W.I. and the E. Caribbean supposed to participate. 

They proposed this way back in 1989 :rotfl: . One advantage of that to RBTT was that the large amount of shares they have would be bought by the Caribbean as a whole not just Trinis so the price would rise. RBTT share price is depressed mainly by limits on institutional ownership and too many shares outstanding. RBTT is in good or better financial shape as RBL whose share price is twice as high. Plus RBTT has significant presence in Central America where growth prospects are high. That is why the Canadians bought this bank it is a VERY nice deal for them and not so good for shareholders IMO.

The little games I have seen him play in he has done very well, in fact topping the class in the PFL, for whatever that says. A digicel selection would have been good. Or even a run in the Gold cup. He was definitely playing at a better level for Cali than Jemmot for Rangers in most games. He does not quite have that vision for penetrating long passes that  Jemmot has but he can make quick accurate short passes even under heavy pressure. And he defends fairly well for an attacking player. He not embroiled in personal issues that like Jemmot.  For qualifying it is about results too so lets see if de coach will at least invite him to tryouts at some point to assess his abilities. As far as the age thing, it probably simplistic to bring up Milla, BUT our pool is small, Rijsbergen needs all the resources he can get. He obviously knows what he is doing far more than all of us here but I feel he go take a closer look at Oliver sooner rather than later.

Anyway lets hope we have enough regulation in place so Trinidad's economy is not at the mercy of RBC corporate headquarters.

Does this make RBTT shares go up up and away? :D

How yuh happy so, like yuh  have shares! The share price will increase from $34 where it currently stands to $40. Plus some RBC shares. RBC got one deal there but shareholders got shafted, theat  $40 price is too low. RBTT would have been exposed to more trading volumes once the regional exchange was opened. Anyway lets hope we have enough regulation in place so Trinidad's economy is not at the mercy of RBC corporate headquarters.

FPATT, again I am embarassed to see some of the questions you are posed with as well as comments from some of the more established and so called "informed" people on this board.

Lord put ah hand ! :-[

Don't be...good bet is that if one person posts it there are others out there who are thinking it. At least their posting the questions presents an opportunity for FPATT to clear up some misconceptions.

Excellent response Bake n Shark. To offer a crude analogy, if a woman is accostomed to being treated like a piece of rubbish and another man comes offering flowers and sweet talk she must obviously be suspicious, and she will have to be careful the husband does not find out. But come what may she must either realize her worth and leave OR stay keep the staus quo. Watch closely at who are among the first to join FPATT. As they say you always know a persons true character when they are confronted by the unknown.

I say is body heat they talkin about. Steups. Just a round about way of saying the obvious: Women drive sexual selection

Anyway lateral and backward motion burns more calories than forward motion. And you could flex muscles over a greater range in football than jogging etc. etc.

I's the only person think we should try Birchall at right wing and push Carlos to right back.

I think so.  8) Birchall is apparently not very fast for that position. But it depends on the game situation. I would say 90% of the time Carlos good at RW, until we have a Sweden type situation.  Birchall would be a good sub for Carlos as he would probably be the next most experienced RW we have. In fact I wonder why Beenhacker or Port Vale never tried Birchall at RB.

Whats the deal with William Da Silva Oliveira ? have not heard anything on him in a while, he not even listed on they team roster anymore. Osie Telesford only play 2 games for Fire too... this injury killing him.

I cant even find Andrei Pacheco on the Colombus Crew team either. I feel he should have stayed home in T&T. They killing his career and now T&T may not call him up as he is not match fit.

From what I understand Pacheco is classified as being in development, meaning reserve or feeder team games.

Football / Re: FC Dallas coming to Trinidad for Shaka Hislop Tribute Cup
« on: September 27, 2007, 04:18:45 PM »
I would have appreciated it more if they didn't do the all star thing that way though.

They could have try to organise with the ProLeague Champions, (or the Cup Champions) to send their team, and include the Olympic team as the 4th.
Or maybe keep the PFL Foreign all stars and call up a full fledged local based national team in place of the Local all Stars.
I suppose though that whoever playing it would still be not much more than a glorified fete match, though.

Still, I like it. Very nice of Dallas to give props to Shaka like that, considering that he only really played about one season there, if so much.
Proleague will also be able to display their goods for the Brazilian and US scouts...

Agreed there, if it is an annual thing, they could have the winners of the FCC or even the team in first place a month or so ahead of the tournament. Still a very good idea regardless. But if it is a scouting operation then all star teams makes sense.

« on: September 23, 2007, 10:59:51 PM »
Team for 2010


                               Samuel   Roberts   Edwards

                                    Theobald      Birchall

                                Avery                    Power

                                     Telesford    Sancho 


The real gem in 2010 will be the substitutes bench. We should have a stronger bench than more recent squads. Assuming Stern decides to play and Noreiga and Cornell complete their comebacks,  check the B team


                                         Downing/Neaves   K. Daniel/Marvin Oliver 8)   Hayden Tinto/K. Baptiste/Peltier

                                                         W. Joseph/Hyland   Spann/ C. Baptiste

                                                     Pacheco/Daniel         Noriega/Thomas   

                                                              Wolfe           James/Hislop


Players that should get Senior team blooded right after 2010- Knox, Richard Roy, Sylvester Teesdale, Micah Lewis, Aaron Maund, Paul, DeSilva, Jerrel Britto, Ryan O'Neil, Daniel Cyrus, Daniel Joseph, Stephan Campbell, Karlon Murray.

That is good news man...unconfirmed or not
Look like FPATT ress ah bull pistle in jack back or wha?

Either him careful,, he always have some scheme hiding inside he cloak
       The players have not one anything,as a matter of fact it's a win win situation for Jack because he had things his way and now they all going to come back and play without the money,lets see now what kind of agreement they will make with Jack for the training and games for this WC,my experience with situations like these in T&T players does end up having to humble in order to play and is the same thing that happen here,i realize this from the time i hear Shaka not going to court and FPATT not getting involved.(just my view)        

Coops the players must be very happy for the end of this blacklist.  And I salute them in that courageous stance they took, especially men like Sancho and Shaka. But no matter how many players come back, the fact is TTFF lied and tried to obfuscate their $$$ dealings. Maybe I'm a neva-happy kinda person and small victory is small victory, BUT, but I not feelin no great joy about this until I see not only end of blacklist but punitive action against the TTFF and the advisor, even if its just Camps forced to publicly acknowlede what they did to our National Team was unjust. Allyuh feel free to throw down a happy wine but we still have a heavy ball an chain roun we foot.

Agreed. He look like he like gallery, but so what.....licking dong de fella is a tacit admission that you have no answer to his tactics. Also the man small so they feel they could rough him up. If tall, strong fellas like K. Jones was to do that how much physical treatment you think he will get.

Thursday, September 20th 2007

Meanwhile, Lincoln Phillips, T&T football's technical director, feels that T&T should have played many more such matches at this stage.
At this stage we are still ahead in the ball game, but not by far. We have never started our programme immediately after the World Cup, we usually wait two years before doing something. It would definitely be better for us to be playing games, regardless of which teams we play."

Mexico my ass.

How are we ahead when Jamaica supposed to be playing Nigeria and we playing El Salvador. And as for the Mexico match this is at least the 2nd time this year TTFF announced we playing Mexico, maybe we will get the Mex Women's u-14 this time.

Nice to see Jones doing well and recieving praise.

But acclaim is a two edged sword, where you find that you also find criticism. I'm sure he understands that the intensity of the criticism will be just as strong, if not stronger, in those times he suffers a lack of form. Remember when Beenie commented that even Jones does not know how good he is? He should have many good years in the EPL and hopefully a few in CL.  :beermug:

Ok but didnt the Government give money to them and if so could they not investigate.

As I understand it the gov't donation did not come with any legal bearings on the specifics of how it was to be spent. A kinda "free" money thing, like donating to a charity that claims to give $$ to orphanages. If no specific claim is made as in "we'll give $100 to 2 orphanages", then if they give $.01 and spend $99.99 on salaries then they can legally claim to have fullfilled their mandate. I am not in law, so others could tell me if I'm off on that one.

AKA in N. America as corporate welfare

Close...except the government money wasn't a donation per se, but a 'goodwill gesture' if you will.  The government was just buying some political capital by piggybacking on the outpouring of pride and nationalism that followed the Germany campaign.  They didn't want to lose face to one of their biggest political opponents (Jack and the UNC) so they was trying to be in thing by giving away public money.  Unless there was some type of stipulation as to how the funds were supposed to be spent then the recipient (TTFF) is free to spend...or not spend, as they see fit.

I used that analogy b/c this situation reminded me of the fire an' brimstone Southern preacher who encouraged people to send him money so he could donate it to an orphanage in Haiti. He even showed video footage of himself visiting the orphanage. You know de scene; poor black children with distended bellies, far away look in their eyes, cobo rushin dem, yadda yadda . De man was huggin dem up, blessin dem; he bawlin big tears an all kina ting, beggin people to sen $$$. The priest in charge of the orphanage say how the preacher is de sword of God, how he save X amount of children life etc, etc. Well 60 minutes or somebody do a expose on him. Yuh know mih boy was sending  only $20-$30/month to de damn orphanage and pocketin MILLIONS! They even talk to the priest. The priest tell them he had to smile and let the man gallery because $20month better than nutten.

The poeple that donated this money, much of whom were elderly African-American widows looking to do some good in the world, were not legally entitled to a single penny in compensation. Robert Tilton was his name.
