Football / Re: The Sharks: Central FC Thread
« on: January 24, 2015, 11:53:10 AM »
Central F.C. go 6 points clear at top of Pro League after a 1-0 victory over W.Connection. This riveting game showed the best on offer from T&T league football with both teams matching each other across the field. As with most games featuring top teams, the match hinged on 2 moments. First, Marcano made his way to the touchline and swung in a cross which the keeper parried away only for that consistent poacher, Willis Plaza, to knock home to take the lead. In the second half Connection sent in a shot that finally found its way past the defence. Williams stretched for the near post and the ball hit the upright. Did Williams have it covered? We will never know, but the woodwork saved the 3 points for Central.

The game was very well balanced with both teams creating few chances due to the stalwart defending and the chess-like tactics of the coaches. It was never a dull game and was played at a fast tempo.

A great advert for T&T football and bodes well for both clubs ventures into the Caribbean Club Championships.

First game was a 1-0 win for North East vs Point Fortin. An own goal won the game, but it was a well matched game. North East played a more attacking game than usual and kept Marcus Joseph well at bay throughout the match.


Went to this game and for a top of the table clash, quite a dull affair, with all players looking lethargic, no passion what so ever. Jan is still the best GK in the league.

Bentick defended okay, but his passing was poor.

Guerra was very poor and then walked out after being subbed (unprofessional).

Plaza looked out of sorts, poor control and sloppy passing, but he scored even if it was a messy penalty box goal.

For the first 45 mis. Marvin Oliver was the best player on the field.

Bibo (Jomal Williams) was also very poor, not interested in the game at all.

Terry Fenwick continues to flop in Belgium. CS Vise have now lost 10 of their 15 matches played to date even losing one match by 10 goals.

Fenwick who took charge of the Third division club which is a standard considered semiprofessional by some, seems to be having a stream of misfortune. Fenwick first order of business was to raid former club Central FC of four players; Willis Plaza, Rundell Winchester, Elton John and Kevon Villoreal.

After 3 months Plaza and Winchester were back in Trinidad, as the coach seemed to have failed on trying to serve as coach, agent and unofficial manger of the players.

Plaza and Winchester arrived in Belgium on one way tickets and no work permit, upon arrival the work permits where settled which allowed the players to play after a couple weeks of not being able to. However, things never got better; accommodation was not up to par, the duo even went days without electricity due to unpaid household bills by the club.

Car and wages were a few other empty promises that were never fulfilled, even though the players had no drivers license. After months of being frustrated despite having 4 to 6 excellent games, both returned home on flights paid for by a third party, and to add insult to injury, the signed in French settlement contracts didn't state want they were told it stated.

Plaza claimed “I was told by the club's translator and Fenwick that the contract stated I would be paid for the months I played and it was terminated due to the club's inability to pay".

The contract when translated in fact stated that the player left due to personal reasons and that the club owes nothing to the player.

Plaza and Winchester are rumored to be back with Central FC and Villaroel and John to return home soon. The player’s failed Belgium outing is an eye opener to other players thinking about plying their trade abroad solely on promises and not done in a professional and ethical manner.

Central FC signed a poor deal and sent their players to a club that was known to have major financial problems.

They simply signed away the rights of the players and made no provisions in case the team didn't fulfill the contracts.

Since the players left after the transfer window opened and they didn't go through the proper procedures the Belgian FA has for player disputes, they could not get a just cause release of their contracts.

So they have to wait until the next transfer window is open.

When all else fails, blame the TTFA.

I doubt Sheldon will spitefully do things to affect any players.

Central FC wanted a quick buck and did not think about the players interest and now they are looking for a scapegoat.

Apparently, the girls are refusing to get on the plane to Mexico right now unless they are paid their stipends!!

So I heard !!!



I can tell you that this is 100% true.

And I am happy the ladies made a stand.

They grouped them together and passed out brown envelopes with US dollar close to the female bathroom in the airport with their payments.

Waldrum pleased with training camp

Story Created: Sep 27, 2014 at 9:37 PM ECT
http://www.trinidadexpress.com/sports/Waldrum-pleased-with-training-camp-277343421.html

Trinidad and Tobago’s senior women’s team head-coach Randy Waldrum has described the opening week of the live-in training camp at the Petrotrin Beach Camp in Palo Seco as beneficial towards his team’s preparations for the CONCACAF Final Round of qualification next month for the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Waldrum has been overseeing daily training sessions in Palo Seco after Petrotrin agreed to host the team for their final home-based camp before their scheduled departure to the United States for the opening match against the US in Kansas. T&T will also face Guatemala and Haiti in the group phase of the CONCACA Final round next month.

“I can’t thank Petrotrin enough for their support of the T&T women’s team by hosting us on their facility. The team desperately needed time to come together in a residency setting before we take off for the US, and Petrotrin was great to step forward and provide this,” Waldrum stated.

“We are finding that the company has been extremely accommodating in providing basically whatever it is that we need. There is a great pool area for workouts, a nice facility for us to relax and eat meals in, and a very nice beach just hundreds of yards away from our housing. We’ve been able to bond better all here together, and able to get in regular training with everyone,” Waldrum added.

“The beach and pool provides us with great workout and regeneration that is so key after practice. This is a very important time for our team development, and this residency will go a long way in helping us qualify.”


Good re-track by Randy, if he would only tell he truth though.

Sometimes, he get 5 players showing up for training.

He himself have to ask players to give him a ride home.

Nice discussion on school football.

Standard has dropped drastically & even the crowds no longer exist. Fatima vs St Mary's for example less than 100 people.

The schools do not care about anything but winning. They are simply not about development, school football is a COMPETITION plain and simple. Imagine players not attending school and playing. Some drop out of school last December after the season & return now and playing. Its complete chaos and the coaches & Principles encouraging this. Only a few schools have standards, players must maintain certain grades to continue in School Sport.

On another note: Check out Dominica Republic Football. Several of their players are in very good leagues. About 4 are with big teams in Spain, yes its B teams but that is still a decent level. They have 3 in Switzerland. Tell why you think they getting this kind of development opportunity & our players not. We had a lively discussion here about this fact, most believe it is the greed of the pro clubs not allowing players to expand their development.

PS: Total Chaos here in all football. Check the twitter post by the Women's coach.

Haiti are very good and T&T will have to play their best. The coach is from France, the assistant of the senior coach also from France.

All their teams including the U20 have been together for 9 months.

The U20 has Three from France, one from Brazil and 2 from USA (MLS). They get their funding assistance from various countries & a good portion from France.

Also expats living abroad invest in the various teams generously.

The Under 20 team can't get a flight to Tobago.

They may have to come in the day of the game?

The TFA is pissed.

Dwight Yorke stadium is still not 100% completed.

The TTFA rushed and set this game for Tobago after they complained. They did not think it over, they just trying to please the TFA.

Spoke to Shabaaz among others yestersday and they told me that all staff memmbers are owed months of salary.

The TTFA really need some help and Tim Kee is not bugging.

More news to come.

Tim Kee will not go after Jack Warner, for the simple fact that he to could be in trouble and maybe jail/fine.

"The official position is that the use of litigation as a vehicle to answer questions pertaining to the whereabouts of the alleged figures being cited is not a prudent strategy because of expense, time, questionable outcome, and ability to collect if successful."

They know the whereabouts of the alleged figures. It's in their bank statements and payment vouchers!

The fact is that according to the players, all the first level evidence required to suspect fraud and theft is in the possession of TTFA. All they need to do is what the players did - spend a week highlighting the suspect transactions and then give it to the police, IRS and integrity commission.

The players have copies of TTFF bank accounts showing dozens of payments to Warner, none of which can be justified. They also have payment vouchers approved by Warner. One example is a 6 figure payment made by LOC06, in 2009 to Warners security firm to provide limousines in Tobago!!

Warner was renting an office to TTFF and another to LOC06 for even more, and a house for Groden.  LOC06 was still renting the office in 2009! That's over $1.5 million in rent for the LOC06 office in 07/08/09. But that office should have closed 6 months after Germany!

There is enough there to hang Jack. The real truth is that Tim-Kee is protecting himself. As vice president during this period, if he was not part of the theft, he was definitely part of the cover up, even if he just said nothing while flying around the world first class. He did not protect the federation, the taxpayer or the players and staff then, so why should we trust him now? How could he justify the LOC06 still incurring expenses 3 years after Germany. Same happened with LOC10.

Sheldon is a good talker, all these great ideas are just... He will answer every question and will always object or diplomatic and when he agrees, he will never follow through.

He might be a good guy getting sucked into a poor federation. I met him a few times and he is very approachable.

I wish him well, but he must be a little more aggressive in his work and bring on men who are good for the job, I know he does not want to get out shinned but now is not the time for that.

I like Norris Ferguson, Lasana, Hislop, Sancho, Kelvin, Tallman and Flex, these are men who can get work done.

Well done getting Sheldon to answer the questions. But don't believe everything you guys read guys. I'm a little disappointed with his answers concerning Warner.

The 2006 WC Warriors have TTFF bank accounts showing dozens of payments to Warner, none of which can be justified. They also have payment vouchers approved by Warner. One example is a 6 figure payment made by LOC06, in 2009 to Warners security firm to provide limousines in Tobago.

The 06 team actually have copies of the accounts. In fact, they would be happy to show some of you. But you will be very, very pissed off when you see how easy it would be to go after the cash if you were TTFA!

As for the senior team. During the last two games MLS players & all players in Leagues could not be invited to camp because it was not a FIFA date.

Jamaica has played 9 games since they played us last November, we have played 2.

As for he youth teams in training, the Under 17 team looks weak, I don't expect them to go far, unless the other teams in the region worst. The SSFL not doing a good job on these players but I understand the lack of funds by the TTFA to do more for them.

The Under 20 teams looks much better but they are not fit.

Go to a session guys and see what kind of refreshments these NATIONAL players getting.

My friend kid is on the team, they have to even pay their own way to go training and these players representing their country.

Its madness how players & staff are being treated. Its worst than anything I have ever seen, we gone back 40 years.

Sheldon have good ideas but he wants everyone to believe in Tim Kee the way he does and he's not understanding that his relationship to Tim Kee would be different to others.

Maybe he could afford to work for free or go to work on an empty stomach. The players are the ones sweating.

If half of the people there was not scared to come front, you would not believe some stories.

I also understand the lack of funds, but simple things can be fixed right away.

The local camp in T&T would help but senior players would not tolerate being treated the way the youth teams are and will come forward, this might be one of the reason Sheldon is insisting he does not want a local team in training?

Wether Tim Kee's good or bad, he has to earn back the respect and fix the image, not paint the old house to make others believe in him and the TTFA.

Do it the right way and stop being diplomatic.

As for today and before. Guys, go secretly and asked some of the youth players, don't take my work for it.

Sheldon might mean good, but needs to be honest about the situation there.

Again, some things can be fix right away.

The interview was pretty decent by Flex and all of you.

PS: Mr Lasana, meet me up lets visit the youth teams sessions, bring your camera.

« on: July 08, 2014, 04:08:27 PM »
As Tim-Kee said, TTFA have been asking Govt to help pay the players. Hello, Tim-Kee is PNM, so that was never going to happen.

So, instead of giving the money to TTFA to pay the players (which would get TTFA off the hook) Kamla "loaned" the money directly, circumventing TTFA, who still owe the players.

Basically, it is hoped that TTFA will still have to go after Warner (which will make Kamla happy) and could still be wound up (which would also make Kamla happy)

TTFA are still in big trouble and have gained no kudos from the settlement.

Of course, there is no guarantee that the players will pursue the case with any gusto (after all, many of the 13 did nothing to help win the case in the first place!


74
Don't believe that BS about Marlon being better suited for the TD position.

This thing with Waldrum has been in motion since Tim Kee got on board. How did Sheldon Phillips get appointed to the General Secretary position? Lincoln is pulling all the strings behind the scenes... I don't have any problem with Lincoln or Sheldon by the way. But the way things are being done is very unprofessional and Sheldon is playing in the mud.

Lincoln push Tim Kee to take the job so he can have a hand in everything.

He spent 7 years in T&T and did nothing, absolutely nothing and has finally gotten his claw back to safe his face via Sheldon.

Lincoln is doing the same thing the old TTFF did, off all people he should know how that feels.

I know for a fact that the players were tired of Marlon and they wanted someone else. Randy Waldrum just happens to be very close friends with Lincoln and it seems a logical choice. However, as much as he may be coaching the team for free during the qualifying tournament, that should be a red flag.

Did they want Marlon to coach for free? Some of this BS has to stop man! The last time they brought Randy with the U-17 he was paid a ridiculous amount of money $5,000 US a month and did nothing for those girls. He brought Marlon to his summer camp at ND and pretended that he was interested in Mariah Shade for his ND team, collect his cash and left Marlon holding the bags.

They talking about the team having a chance at history, well why should Waldron get the opportunity to create the history when he had the same opportunity with the U-17 team and failed miserably.

I does get fed up with how we always want to promote other people except our own. It have plenty other Trinidadians who could get the job done with that team other than Waldrum or Marlon Charles, but nobody in charge doing their homework!

Sam has a thread with a long list of coaches with T&T ties, some of them very experienced and professional and could do as good a job or better job than Randy Waldrum.
http://www.socawarriors.net/forum/index.php?topic=62692.msg901644#msg901644

Don't start any talk about his resume either, them fellas just connected to the game in the US and does play all the politics tricks to get them the best opportunities, just like this one that is handed to him AGAIN! They know people.

The TTFA need to do the same for the women's team, find a Trinidad national foreign or domestic, find the money to pay him or her and their staff, and find the money to support the training camp and friendlies.

There are Trinidadian coaches who are in positions in the US to do the same; Waldrum teaches coaching courses with the NSCAA and there are Trinidadian coaches doing the same thing with the same coaching education organization as he.

No axe to grind, just sharing my thoughts for today.

Sheldon is not straight forward  and honest with the T&T public and cannot function without Lincoln.

Like the old TTFF saying - TAKING TRINBAGOIANS FOR FOOLS.

Sponsors take note.


75
Stephen Hart already said that he would like to have a local camp as well as some games, so he does see the importance and benefit.

Hart said so, but I think this will not happen as the TTFA mention that they do not have the money to have a local team in training. I had a proper discussion with manager David Muhammad and a few others and they confirm we will try to fill the calendar dates with games but cannot afford to have any local team in constant training and preparing.

They said they will just call he guys needed for the game a few days before games.

A lot is not happy, but understand the money situation.

I spoke with Skeene and a few others in the league and they are all open for discussions to allow their players time to train with the NT, even if its not often but is willing to work with the TTFA and release their players every month, they said no real conversation took place and the TTFA seemed content with just calling in the players they need before games.

They also do not have he money, I am sure they are willing?

I did speak with 4 of the 13 2006 Warriors and they are willing to join forces with the TTFA to fight Jack for the lost money, they say even if it takes another 8 years, they want to do it, but Tim Kee confirmed he is not interested.

Football / Re: Thread for the T&T vs Argentina Game (4-Jun-2014)
« on: June 04, 2014, 11:30:07 AM »
The day Argentina fell.
By Ian Prescott (Express).


For the record, Argentina fielded a very young team, with just Racing Club midfielder Rudolphe Vincente and striker Hector Yazalde having reached age 21. At age 18, Boca Juniors striker Carlos Garcia was the youngest of the South Americans.

But there is no dismissing the magnitude of Trinidad and Tobago’s 1-0 victory over Argentina at the 1967 PanAm Games in Winnipeg, Canada. It was a magical tournament for the Caribbean team, fielding a football squad for the first time at the PanAm Games, topping their group, and also winning a bronze medal.

The Argentines were young, but players of potential. A couple of them went on to play in Europe, while at least two later represented the senior Argentine team at international level. Right-back Bargas had 30 national caps and later also played in France for both Metz and Nantes, while striker Yazalde, who died at age 51 in 1997, was once European Golden Shoe winner after scoring 46 goals.

Yazalde also had ten senior national team caps and was a member of Argentina’s 1974 FIFA World Cup team, where he twice scored in a 4-1 win over Haiti. Prominent members of the T&T team included 32-year-old Association Footballer of the Year and the captain Sedley Joseph, 30-year-old Alvin Corneal, and goalie Lincoln “Tiger” Phillips.

Men against boys some might say. But it was no less easy for Trinidad & Tobago, although the Caribbean team had an advantage because FIFA at that time allowed developing CONCACAF teams like Mexico, Canada, Bermuda and T&T to field full national teams, while restricting South Americans Argentina and Colombia to under-23 players. Years later, FIFA changed the rules and restricted all teams to under-23 players.

Corneal played the entire match as T&T cancelled out two first half Alfonzo Tovar (34th & 43rd) goals when Gerry Brown (59th & 88th), Pat Small (79th & 80th) and Kevin Berassa (64th) scored to give them a 5-2 victory over an equally young Colombian team. Injury kept him out the 1-1 draw against Mexico, which had beaten the Caribbean team 4-0 three months before, and he went off annoyed when coach Conrad Brathwaite took him off for the final few minute of the Argentina match.

Kevin Berassa had scored for T&T just about 12 minutes from the end, but Argentina was coming forward in waves. “The guys fought that final 11 minutes to the very end,” Corneal recalled. “I would like to think it was the best bunch of players Trinidad and Tobago had used in a football match up till then.”

Corneal recalls that few believed that a relatively unknown Trinidad and Tobago could beat Argentina at any level, far less advance from a group that also included Mexico and Colombia.

“It seemed a foregone conclusion to everyone that we were not going to come out of the group,” Corneal said frankly. “It was an expectation by the people of Trinidad and Tobago that we were definitely out of depth.”

Tall in goal for Trinidad and Tobago and in his prime at age 26, goalie “Tiger” Phillips remembered being “very busy”, against the young Argentines, who were not taking defeat to an unknown Trinidad and Tobago easily. “Argentina was supposed to win the gold medal,” Phillips declared. “They were the big team.”

Later, T&T were upset 3-1 by Bermuda at the semi-final stage, but beat Canada 4-1 for third spot, while Mexico won gold. Since 1967, Trinidad and Tobago played Argentina three times at Pan Am level, losing 3-2 in 1971. Then Ron La Forrest and company went down 5-1 in 1975, and T&T also lost 6-0 in 1987 when current T&T assistant national coach Hutson Charles and company were in their prime.

Forty-seven years later, the bronze medal is still the only piece of silverware a Trinidad and Tobago men’s national football team has won at the Pam-Am Games. And like them all those years ago, Phillips is backing the current T&T national team to defy expectations and put up a fight against a star-studded Argentina, when the teams meet today in a Pre-World Cup friendly international in Buenos Aires.

“It’s a great opportunity. To have such an opportunity is wonderful. I don’t care what the result,” Phillips declared.“This is our World Cup. It is good for our players and for the coaches, to prepare for a match against a team which is one of the favourites to win the World Cup.”

1967 PAN AM GAMES SQUADS: (Players ages in brackets)

ARGENTINA: - Angel Bargar (20); Eduardo Noberto Cremasco (20), Jorge Dominchi (20), H. Dorado (20), Carlos Garcia (18), Hector Martinez (19), Jose Martinez (20), Jorge Gomez, Hector Martinez (19), Carlos Oriolo, Ramon Ponce, Juan Tavernar (19), Rodolfo Vincente (21), Hector Yazalde (21), Eduardo Zottola, Humberto Zuccarelli.

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO: - Captain- Sedley Joseph (32), Goalkeeper- Lincoln Phillips (26), Alvin Corneal (30), Jean Moutett, Aldwin Ferfuson (32), Tyronne De La Bastide (29), Hugh Mulzac, Selwyn Warren, Arnim David, Teddy Grell (23), Victor Gramaldo (23), Kevin Berassa, Gerry Brown (23), Andy Aleong (24), Jeff Gellineau, Pat Small, Richard Stewart.

Coach: - Conrad Brathwaite.



I fed up read about this myth Alvin and them create. They lying to T&T football people.

They need to stop talking crap about we beat Argentina in 1967. Yes we won the game but People here laughing at that. It was Pan American games and it was Amateur football and an amateur Argentina and Colombia.

That was not the Argentina and Colombia squads that try to qualify for 66 & 70 WC. In any case that Argentina squad did not go on to qualify for 1970 WC and neither did Colombia.

Is pure crap Alvin and them turn into a myth to big up themselves.

1. The 06 guys will be looking at the possibility of winding up TTFA in next few weeks.

2. Clubs who are in the Pro Bowl final on Friday 23rd May will not be releasing the requested players for Hart's camp. Main concern is the winner of W Connection vs Central.

3. Cyrus is being sent to Vietnam on Saturday 17th May and won't be available to Hart. This is a fantastically bad decision as he will miss the biggest stage of his career. Also, the possibility of being on show to the whole football world must be more sensible than disappearing into Vietnam? Not sure if Cyrus is too happy, but he's taking the advice of Williams and has called Stephen Hart to explain.

4. There are whispers that Central F.C. are putting together a pre season tour of Europe, including Fenwick's club in Belgium.

I spoke with Anil Roberts about three weeks ago and he is not interested in any sport in T&T apart from Swimming and Cricket. He told me that football dead and its a waste of money.

I try speaking with Tim Kee, but he refuse.

Anil told me that Tim Kee loves Sheldon but have no faith in him and will not tell him in his face.

He said he a yes man and brings nothing really different or fresh to the table. He goes along with the plan, and question nothing. Tim Kee gives Sheldon to basically run T&T football and he cannot handle it but does not have the balls to asked for assistant.

Thats all he was willing to say to my source.

There are at least 3 foreign players willing to join T&T but cannot because no funds etc etc etc etc....

Strange, I was now coming to post something.

All I can say is everything in Trinidad and Tobago is in a mess here. From the politics to our football.

The new so call Association is in a standstill without any means of a way forward. They have no plans or ideas to move forward. And is fooling the public to buy time because they are lost.

Presently their are no programs running.

The senior team are struggling to receive any budget for the ministry of sports.

The Ministry want to do their own thing and plays politics with our football.

Imagine, they even doing their own advertising for coaches and a TD. By the way, Anton Corneal resign the TD post.

I cannot understand what is happening with the federation, they had a decent thing going but fell flat now.

It's a money grab in the Ministry to get their hands on dollars.

I now see why so many of our teams are struggling on the International stage and basically everything is running the same old style and fashion.

Last minute preparation, no pay to staff and a complete lack of professionalism. We going into 3 top friendly games with no idea and no preparations. The players are even confute because they do not know if they will be called.

Imagine the Pro league gets about 8-10 million from Government, which is fine, but where is the incentive to make things better if you getting that kind of money?

So when the Gov't say they put X amount of Millions into football. They not lying! its just not into National teams and its development for youth teams.

I expect more of the staffs to resign soon.

Real Bacchanal in Trini.

Jack Warner legacy is alive and kicking.

The senior team are struggling to receive any budget for the ministry of sports.

The Ministry want to do their own thing and plays politics with our football.

Imagine, they even doing their own advertising for coaches and a TD. By the way, Anton Corneal resign the TD post.

I cannot understand what is happening with the federation, they had a decent thing going but fell flat now.

It's a money grab in the Ministry to get their hands on dollars.

I now see why so many of our teams are struggling on the International stage and basically everything is running the same old style and fashion.

Last minute preparation, no pay to staff and a complete lack of professionalism. We going into 3 top friendly games with no idea and no preparations. The players are even confute because they do not know if they will be called.

Imagine the Pro league gets about 8-10 million from Government, which is fine, but where is the incentive to make things better if you getting that kind of money?

So when the Gov't say they put X amount of Millions into football. They not lying! its just not into National teams and its development for youth teams.

I expect more of the staffs to resign soon.

Real Bacchanal in Trini.

Jack Warner legacy is alive and kicking.

I thought I red somewhere on the forum that FS said that Darryl Trim was released? but I am sure I so him came on for Central yesterday?

Angus Eve really learn well under Fenwick, they play a fighting untidy game with no tecnical flow, just hard kicking and knocking.

I went to the game last night, Central didn't look to bad, but from having a potent midfield, probably one of the best in the country you would expect more than just draws, even though they fail to convert many chances. They would have lost, they lucky they got a penalty.

I predict they will not win the league or even place second. I hope I am wrong, Terry Fenwick is not technically a good coach. But next season if they have the same team they would be a force. So too is Jabloteh and a young Rangers.

I saw Angus Eve got kicked out, I was leaving already so I did not see what exactly happended, I think he was protesting the penalty?

Peltier I think scored for Central, but the ball looked like it went in, but the ref says no, the goalie got a touch on it to, but with no goal-line technology I doubt they could protest that.

Marcano and Central was disappointed to watch especially in the first game, that final 3rd they just not connecting.

Caesar was good to watch.

Winchester came on as a sub and was the reason they got a penalty.

I think North East Stars got some bad calls?
