Football / Re: Glen goal earns T&T full points.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink - Suriname / Netherlands
Carlos Tevez - Uranus / Argentina

Let me clarify this . Henry's parents are from Martinique and Guadeloupe and he was born in France.   I hear Ferdinand from the Caribbean though.

I don't know what Ferdinand you talking about, I assume Rio, but Anton and Rio Father was born in St. Lucia.

Les Ferdinand's Parents were also Born in St. Lucia.

Les is from West London. Anton and Rio are from Peckham, South London

Asylumseeker I said already that I knew that in my first post check the asterisks and the bottom of my post. Maybe I didn't explain it in a way that did show that I knew.

If this is better: Thierry Henry was born in the Metropolis, ''The Mainland'',..... Paris.


LOL @ BM

I think Marcos Senna is good call also Asylumseeker with Emmanuel Olisadebe, Tigana etc. Alot of players who mentioned have made a good contribution.

Thanks for all the replies to the thread.

The mention of Ray Houghton made me think of Aiden McGeady (No way this guy has made the same
contribution as RH lol) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RSS61Deu8t8

Paul McGrath was born in Ealing, London and grew up in Dublin I forget.



Do not be so quick to believe that.  There is mystery surrounding the birthplace of Henry and this has been so for many years.  Henry has been said to be born in Guadeloupe, Haiti, and France.  Similarly Kareem Abdul Jabaar wasn't born in the US but you will find oodles of sources saying he was.  Unless you see de man bithpaper doh puh yuh head on no block.

There is no Mystery. He has always said, in the flesh, he was born in Paris

Even before the CL Final 2006 on Sky Sports they showed 10 minute interviews showing with both him and Ronaldinho showing where they was born, grew up etc.
and he said it is great that he is playing in the City of his Birth, even though he feels like a 'Londoner' now,
especially as he won the WC with France in the same stadium and his grandmother was there to see it among other things.

Thierry Henry - Guadeloupe/France

Edgar Davids - Surinam/Holland

Mario Balotelli - Ghana/Italy U21

Davids better than Rijkaard?

Rijkaard was born in Holland (Amsterdam)

Henry was born in France (Parisian suburbs) & Balotelli was born in Italy.

Carib-Briton- this is a good thread... heritage is an interesting thing...

But when ah see Thomas Radzinski & Owen Hargreaves names gettin' call ah wonder if we trying to name the greatest, or if we just makin' a database of all lol... ;D  That said lewwe throw Fredy Adu in de mix nah....lol

LOL.

I forget about Adu sometimes... wow all that hype.

66
Thierry Henry - Guadeloupe/France

Edgar Davids - Surinam/Holland

Mario Balotelli - Ghana/Italy U21

Thierry Henry was Born in France and Balotelli was Born in Italy

The born in "France" distinction in the case of the Antilleans does not "carry" in the same way as does others ... Guadeloupe is France.


Anyway, the sentimental favourite for me from those listed is Tresor ... (first name Marius). Check this article from last year: http://www.fifa.com/classicfootball/news/newsid=753188.html

I feel is a toss up between Di Stefano and Eusebio. Eusebio for one is still regarded by many Portuguese as their best player ever.

Ferec Puskas (excuse my spelling) played for Hungary and Spain. He could more than make that list. Brilliant player by all accounts.

Thanks.

... player to play for a country which isn't their place of birth

As in how much they contributed to that nations football e.g. Pioneer (First black player), Made people take more notice of that country (this can work in many ways) etc etc


I'm going to give some examples but I am not saying any of them are the greatest:

(Born/Country Represented)

Maurice Tresor (Guadeloupe*/France)
Patrick Vieira (Senegal/France)
Mohamed Sissoko (France/Mali)
Paul Chillan (Martinique*/ France)
Fredric Kanoute (France/Mali)
John Barnes (Jamaica/England)
Robbie Earle (England/Jamaica)
Clarence Seedorf (Surinam/Holland)
Chris Birchall (England/Trinidad & Tobago)
Anthony Baffoe (Germany/Ghana)
Yıldıray Baştürk (Germany/Turkey)
Eusébio (Mozambique/Portugal)
Alfredo di Stéfano (Argentina/Played for Argentina, Colombia and Spain LOL)

One thing I do notice about the players that come to my mind is that they moved to the country they represented very early in their life. It is rare you'll find someone you made an significant or memorable impact who didn't live in that country for long period of time, if at all.... (excluding Robbie Earle - 1st World Cup Goal Ever or Birchall's 'Belter' against Mexico)

Football / Re: If kenwayne Jones was English
« on: June 16, 2009, 04:48:24 AM »
What a thread LOL

LOL @ that list of players brought up, A significant amount of those players don't get the opportunities to score like Jones would and there is a number he DID NOT score more than that said other factors need to be taken into account he does not exactly have Robben and Ronaldo alongside him and he is a very good player in the air. Jones is a good player I just hope he hasn't lost drive to improve as a result of the league is playing in and finance otherwise he will end up going back down the leagues.
It's all good to big up Jones when things are going well, I even remember someone say he's better than Adebayor or even saying he should be playing in the top four but when things go back forums like this panic or write off someone lol.

Hi All,
I have seen Bobby Zamora played on several occasions in the UK and he would be a great addition to the squad. I know his 'Old man'  and I will contact him and pass the message on.

The man is a regular premiership starter at the moment.

What u think ,they have interest in wanting to represent us ?

Why wouldn’t they? Nobody else not tapping on they shoulder right now. ;D

Did anybody get in touch with any of them on facebook, Myspace etc? We could really do with any additional help in defense. Zamora could play a decent attacking midfield, he kind of reminds me of Daryl Roberts. Jloydd could fine ah spot in defense. Any help would do!!!  Hopefully somebody send ah text before Saturday because Costa Rica coming ready fuh battle..


And you ready tuh bring dem men in now?

Hoyte is on MySpace and Facebook.

« on: June 04, 2009, 08:36:39 AM »
Yeah! Could really really use Samuel.
And Hoyte. Assuming either one is interested. Full back is a major problem position for us.

TBH maybe at CONCACAF standard but I think Hoyte is a poor left back, considering the amount of feedback he would have given himself as a result of his poor performances over the past two years I thought he would of improved by now.
I thought Justin Hoyte was a right back. And poor games are relative to where he's playing them. He's in the Prem. Poor at Arsenal or Boro is still a few notches above good at Defence Force or DCU.

Accident. Meant Right back.

Those are the same fans that used to sing songs about sending Jews to gas chambers when they hosted Spurs.  Chelsea has always had a neo-nazi element in their support base.



Lol @ used.

This is the excuse a section Tottenham used when with the Sol Campbell issue. If Chelsea can do that why can't we say XYZ about Campbell.

Another Tottenham favourite: Adebayor Adebayor, you Dad washes elephants and your mum is whore.

Just for the record his dad has been Dead for a while.

Football / Re: Nigerian bus driver kills four Barca supporters
« on: May 30, 2009, 12:14:33 PM »
agreed..

yuh living in Kenya and Nigeria and not even English but you want to be more passionate about it than men who grow up in the club.

the reality is that when you talk to some english fans and tell them what team you back, it confuses them. they want to know why you like the club, what ties you have to be carrying on so?

your father, and your father's father were not fans, carrying to see games as a young kid. You don't live in the city.. you are not a season ticket holder, you do not have a realistic connection the club other than seeing them on cable TV on a weekly basis..

sometimes yuh hadda sit back and put things in perspective.. I is ah man love meh football (too much for my own good sometimes), but at the end of the day, people need to realize that football not putting food on yuh table or getting yuh up in life..

I don't really think it's passion more stupidity.

Then again we all have different definitions for passion, some English people think this is passion.
