Well ppls I was at the Tobago United Joe Public game so let me try a 'Touches' here

First of all the support was suprisingly good and vocal, helped by the fet match that finiched mins before, so there was alcohol a plenty in the stands. Tobago United have a 4 person ALL FEMALE riddim section that gave lovely renditions of songs like 'Hot Work' and 'T.U. We want a Goal' The atmosphere was lovely.
On the field of play, as the reports claimed, TU did enough to stay in the game and Joe Public looked ordinary to me. And for parts of the game they would have been in trouble had TU had one decent striker on the pitch. I ent know the names but the tall man No. 15 ent do nothing whole game and the short man N0 29. well everybody cuss that he ent get sub off the game. Apart from that they have a decent team. Not very good but decent enough to get some points this season.

Thanks for de match report :beermug:.....I am curious to see how Tobago Utd play the rest of the season

Football / Re: Thread for the T&T v Jamaica U-17 game.
« on: May 06, 2007, 11:19:01 AM »
Fellas...just checked the rules for this tournament..T&T qualifies even if we tie with Jamaica. Head to Head counts before goal difference. DWarrior picked it up in an article and I checked the Concacaf website and posted the rules on his thread about tie-breakers. Doesn't really change much in that 16 year olds ain't gonna play for a tie..but in case we manage just a draw...WE THRU. GO T&T!!!!

So Master Jack's plan coming to fruition after changing the format of the Caribbean Youth Cup last year before the knockout round began. The excuse being Jamaica hosting the final and being placed in the same group with guest teams Mexico, Canada and Panama. These same guest teams whom knocked out potential Caribbean teams from advancing. e.g. Cuba, Barbados etc.
Now most logical Trinis will see this as unfair, but others ??? So if the tie-breaker was in effect from the Caribbean Youth Cup last year then no guest teams should have been invited which would have made the Competition more legitimate.
PS: I cannot recall the Caribbean nations being informed of this?


You would be one of the many Jamaicans who uses Jack Warner is an excuse for JA failures against T&T..
Like I said "most logical Trinis" which means "Trinis with brain."

Now dont be irrational and foolish...you are the only one here who is not logical but instead naive..Yuh always come in here drawing all type of stupid analysis about how Jack Warner have master plans and conspiracies which are unfair to other teams ....Jamaica has home field advantage today...NO excuses!

Trinidad and Tobago’s National Under 17 footballers will attempt to become only the fourth team from the Caribbean to qualify for a FIFA Under 17 World Championship

T&T has played at a World Under 17 Championship before but has never qualified for one. The only Caribbean teams to qualify include Haiti, for the upcoming finals, Jamaica in 1999 and Cuba in 1988


I dont understand so when Yorke, Ince, Eve et al went under Bertille what was that?

Wasnt that the under 17 World Championship?

Please clarify
yorke sherwood, ince eve etc w BSC qualified for the u-20 WC in Portugal 1990 or 1991. 
At u-17 level we hosted with jones, blackman etc, we did not qualify.

Thank you for clarifying that Football King

No TT beauty for Miss Universe


Friday, May 4 2007

FOR the first time in 16 years, Trinidad and Tobago will not be represented at the Miss Universe competition. The competition will lack the “Trini flavour” and a “Tobago dumpling” because no contestant from this country will compete.

Last year’s contestant, Kenisha Thom-Selvon, yesterday bemoaned the absence from the competion of a TT representative and appealed to government and corporate sponsors for assistance. Saying that the competition “helps to elevate and uplift our women” Thom-Selvon who last year made it among the top ten finalists, said that this country was not without class and beauty to compete internationally. “Our contestants usually do well,” she said.

In March, Culture and Community Development Minister, Joan Yuille-Williams, referring to the lack of a delegate this year, had commented: “We are going to try and rectify that.” Peter Elias, Director of TT Miss Universe Pageant, maintained: “We will not be attending Miss Universe as it was way impossibly too late.”

Elias said that other Miss Universe representatives were already in Mexico where this year’s competition is to be held, preparing for the May 28 event.. Elias had initially announced that TT was not going to be represented due to the lack of funding.

Saying that he had not received “one cent” from anyone, Elias said: “This is a full-time project which requires financial support in order to adequately prepare delegates and maintain our level of success.” He added that he had written to over a hundred companies and government agencies for sponsorship.

In 1977, Penny Commissiong-Chow was the first TT delegate to be crowned Miss Universe and in 1998, Wendy Fitzwilliam continued to make TT proud when she was crowned queen.

Ramchand: Naipaul a man misunderstood
Ruth Osman

Sunday, May 6th 2007

   

VS Naipaul, the writer and the man, has been misunderstood by the society that was once his home. This was one of the main points of Prof Kenneth Ramchand's lecture, "The Writer and the Man: Criticising VS Naipaul",

"None of you may agree with me. But I'll still be right," Ramchand told his audience.

The event, part of the University of the West Indies, St Augustine Campus', year-long celebration of the Nobel laureate, was held at the Learning Resource Centre, UWI, St Augustine, on Thursday.

In a lecture filled with humorous anecdotes and stories about his personal reaction to Naipaul's writing, Ramchand analysed our perception of the famous writer. He said that some people seemed to be more concerned with Naipaul himself, than with what he wrote:

"The defining characteristic of this ... criticism is that they are more concerned with the man they think the author is, than with the written work."

Admitting that there was something about Naipaul's work that makes the reader take things personally, Ramchand stressed the importance of judging his work on its own merit.

"I often wonder whether we are afraid to experience the work of writers like VS Naipaul who look at the world more uncompromisingly than we do," he said.

Ramchand also shed light on what he says is one of Naipaul's most quoted and misunderstood statements: "History is built around achievement and creation. And nothing was created in the West Indies."

According to Ramchand, if the statement was viewed in the context of the two preceding paragraphs, one would realise that Naipaul was speaking of our colonial past.

Naipaul, he said, was bemoaning the fact that our colonial masters had left us with nothing: no great institutions, no monuments or museums. The statement had nothing to do with the folk art and the culture of the newly emancipated people.

He also commented on the writer's recent interactive session with students at the Lakshmi Hindu Girls' School, saying that it was not well conceived:

"You have a whole bunch of children coming to see and hear a great man and you say that you want to be interactive. Don't be interactive. Bow down. Let him read a story ... and let them ask him things about it. And everybody would have lived happily ever after," he said.

And does Ramchand have any criticism of Naipaul's work? Being careful to note that it did not in any way lessen his respect for the writer, the professor said that Naipaul's earlier works, where he wrote "in a cloud of unknowing", affected him as a reader more strongly than his later works, where he seemed to know exactly where he was going.

"When you read the early works, all kinds of things are going on in your head that, perhaps, he (Naipaul) didn't even know," he said.

The lecture ended with a question-and-answer session. And in response to a question about Naipaul's self-imposed exile from Trinidad, Ramchand said:

"I don't care what he says ... I don't think he ever abandoned Trinidad. Trinidad haunts every page of his writing."

"Over the two years of the festival’s existence it has become synonymous with many big name artistes starting in 2005 with headline act Stevie Wonder and including Natalie Cole, Baby Face, the O jays, India Arie, Shaggy and more. The second edition of the festival in 2006 saw performances by the electrifying British rocker Sting, Patti La Belle, Vanessa Williams among others with return stints by the ‘ Eight Wonder of the world’ and Ms Cole .

In addition to Sir Elton, the 2007  event will feature the likes of Gladys Knight, Earth Wind and Fire, Al Green, heather Headley, LL Cool J and more big name artistes yet to be announced."

I THINK only the die hard football fans in TnT are aware of what is currently going on with the U-17 team (maybe today the media will try and make most of the country aware of the situation)..but if we do qualify then most of the country will become aware of the U-17 success..

yeh I expect them to get a very warm welcome at Piarco airport after beating them yardies  :beermug:

:devil: de man is not my padner... I'm just not the typical Trini who believes de little bachhanal rumours...
Cool man, but we all have to admit that this sort of shit happens in many places where the person of power WILL be treated differently than the average peson on the street, and sometimes ALL the evidence  will never make it to the police.

There was this politician here who got in an accident and he told the police it was not him.
well nothing was done UNTILL  video evidence from a camera phone PROVED it was in fact he who was driving the car, so he HAD to resign.
People in Power WILL try things like that man.

I do agree that people in power or people have celebrated status do get treated differently...and it should not be this way...but dont you believe that people in power or people who have celebrated status should be judged fairly also?...Not everytime there is no evidence means that the person in power is hideing the evidence  from the public or police...it could very well mean there is no evidence....try and see it from a neutral perspective

Horrendous jazz fest experience
Saturday, May 5th 2007

   

The devil, it is said, is in the details and boy was he present big time at the Plymouth Jazz Festival. Never me again!

How do you have great music and a great audience yet still contrive to deliver such a horrible customer experience?! Imagine, ticket holders having to rent chairs and chairs running out in the VIP section!Â

Imagine curtailing the foreign acts that were the main drawing card and the complete disrespect shown to Diana Ross by interrupting her while on stage! Imagine walking for nearly a mile after the show before being picked up by the shuttle service!

Oh well-St Lucia, here I come.

3 teens charged in schoolboy's murder
Denyse Renne drenne@trinidadexpress.com

Friday, May 4th 2007

   

Three teenagers appeared before an Arima magistrate yesterday charged with murdering schoolboy Aleem Ali.

Kerwin Welington, Danny Seetahal and Roshan Ramkissoon, all 17, appeared before Senior Magistrate Debra Quintyne in the Arima Magistrates' First Court, charged with murdering Ali between March 26 and 28.

The charge was laid indictibly and they were not called upon to plead. All three were unrepresented and the matter adjourned to May 17. They were then escorted to the Youth Training Centre.

Ali, 14, a student of the Five Rivers Secondary, of Cane Farm Road, Arouca, was found chopped and burnt on March 28 in a forested area in Arouca. He was reported missing on March 26 by his uncle, Ahazad Ali, after failing to return home from school.

His mother, father and uncle were present at yesterday's hearing.

Speaking with the Express following the court matter, a male relative, who did not want to be identified, said the family was relieved.

On Monday, Northern homicide officers detained three teenagers who attend the Five Rivers Secondary in connection with Ali's murder.

The teens were held at their Arima and Arouca homes respectively, following intensive investigations.

Investigations into Ali's murder were headed by a high profile homicide team led by Superintendent Nadir Khan and including Sgt Stanley Ramdeen and PCs Sunil Ramoutar and Dinod Sobie. PC Gary Huggins charged the teenagers.

DEAD: Bisnath Lall Beharry

A man who was found dead in a drain at Butler Village, Waterloo, yesterday is believed to have been drunk when he fell and broke his neck.

Bisnath Lall Beharry, 54, had just left a nearby bar when the incident occurred, police said.

They are investigating reports that Beharry, a labourer of Butler Village, tried to sit on a culvert on the drain at around 1.15 p.m., which was dry, and overbalanced.

Beharry's sister, Dolly Seenath, told the Express he was a bachelor" but his life was very entertaining (and) he was quiet and friendly."

Chaguanas police are investigating.

the comparison with shakespeare is revealing. there is a standard of literary criticism that has been around for decades to which "good" literature can be determined.  one of the standards for literature is whether the work develops basic themes (good vs. evil, etc.). is calypso literature? chalkdust seriously comparing shakespeare to "rally round the west indies" in literary terms? steups.

what are the standards to which calypso should be held?

You took the words right out my mouth

I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to Trinidad for beating Canada. The fact that u beat Canada today will allow us to qualify for the WC as I'm sure we'll spank Trinidad on Sunday. Trinidad, U are our Caribbean brothers for real. THANK YOU. I hope u celebrate with us on Sunday after we beat u 6-0. Don't worry, Haiti and Jamaica will represent the Caribbean well in the World Cup.
