Football / Re: The Sharks: Central FC Thread

Just wanted to post a link to some nice photos of the Central F.C. Community Youth Football Camp.

Good to see the players interacting with the youngsters.

Highlights? What highlights? This was more like target practice for Saprissa. Easy 3 points. Santos and Saprissa look forward to seeing another weakling from the pre leaague next year. Central target you are up next.

But I thought wconnection's head coach was one of the best in the pre league and Jomal Williams was an up and coming talent. What ever happened to the young Woo Ling? What's his address in pergatory? All of these young, talented players with enourmous potential just falling by the way side hopelessly languishing in a hopeless football league calling itself a pro league.
There isn't a huge continental divide here between truth and reality. Truthfully, the reality is that football in Trinidad and Tobago is like a "cheap suit". It crumbles easily.

There is, as you say, a big divide. This group is probably the toughest to get out of.
Say what you want about the Pro League, but until you can find a way of paying 25 players between US$1,500 - US $2,500 per month, it is the best we have. This competition has cost David John-Williams a lot of money.  He never expected to win the Champions League. Perhaps he hoped that just maybe if they got out of the group they could take some scalps. I'm positive that he never expected to lose both games 4-0. Just like Barca didn't expect to lose 4-0 last week.
It is right to criticise these performamces, but when you do, consider the challenge that they took on and maybe ask yourself: Is there anything more that Trini football fans could do to help?
If clubs were getting 2,000 supporters to a game, they could afford a few foreign players to up their quality.
We need to build from home to win away.

I just have to smile at the attempts to confuse from facts.
Everyone knows that the TTFA hasn't done its accounts since 2008, according to Rastaman. True. But what does that have to do with FIFA regulations? Is that the TTFA's defence? You know I ent do it so what allyuh asking for it for?
If the audit was supposed to go to FIFA at the end of March, then why is KPMG's departure in June relevant?
And, as I showed in my article looking at the constitution and Tim Kee's specific duties, Jack Warner would never have been able to leave the TTFF/TTFA finances in the state it is in without the help of Raymond Tim Kee.
And why do I mention Tim Kee's other job titles like Mayor of POS and PNM Treasurer?
It is fact and up to readers to decide if it is relevant or not.
For instance, the TTFA has no money coming from FIFA. The TTFA has no money coming from private sector. The TTFA relies almost entirely on taxpayers money. And yet the TTFA president has refused to meet the Minister of Sport, regardless of the impact on his football body.
At this point, some readers might consider Tim Kee's political role to possibly have some bearing with the country on a brink of a general election.
But, if you don't, then just gloss past it and pay it no mind.

Good talk Lasana.

So the TTFA got their 9.9 mill from the goverernment?

They got their Gold Cup prize money, what ever is left from it.

They got FIFA grants until June.

The coaching staff and players are paid by the MOS.

They do not pay a rent.

They didn't pay anything for the PanAm teams.

How come they still broke? where is all the money going and what percentage do they contribte?

They have all these big members and they seem like they are forever struggling in the admin department, how come?

Did they use up th money on their new website and board members?

Maybe Flex can asked the TTFA some of these questions?

As for this latest KPMG drammer, why did they hire the same company Jack Warner dealt with for years?



Actually, they also received $5 million subvention from MoS.

But they are in a nationwide grassroots programme and the women are in training for the Olympics. Also, I think the U17's are in competition and they have Mexico in a couple of weeks.

It's very difficult to book a team on a flight to Tobago. Usually you have stand by's which means teams travel in groups. If an agreement could be made with CAL that teams have a guaranteed flight, it would be a step in the right direction.

Stupid question here.  Is the ferry not an option?

Currently only one working.

Eh heh??   ???   :-\

I know people who took the ferry recently.

How recent is recent?   From about late April/early May to early July only one was working but they brought back the 2nd ferry to cope with the busy July/August holiday period.  Two weekends ago I went back and forth no problem....and two ferries were working...

The major challenge is getting a booking especially on a weekend and with a car......unless its done at least a month in advance forget it.  Unless you like the drama of standby...........

I think that incident was around end of June. Someone recently mentioned to me that there was still only one ferry, so I apologise for posting erroneous information!

Currently only one working. I know people who took the ferry recently. When they arrived in Tobago in the morning, they were told that the ferry returns in 30 minutes and there was no other ferry for the day. So when they went to purchase tickets to return, they were told that the ferry was full!
Eventually they returned on a cargo ferry that docked in Trinidad at 7 a.m.
They said that when they bought their ticket in Port of Spain and while they waited for the ferry, there was no notification that there was no return ferry service later in the day.

These guys have to work, so sometimes a weakened team would travel. Also, Pro League teams would want to stay overnight (at least in a cheap guest house)

This is ridiculous. You quicker get a reservation to Miami than Scarborough.

The system is flawed. I guess companies and travel agents buy blocks of tickets to use/sell as and when. So flights are always "full" and you have to wait for a standby.

Easy to rectify: if you don't use your ticket for the prescribed date and time, you have to pay another TT$75 to rebook.

LOTS of raw footballing talent in Tobago.  Hopefully this sort of initiative can showcase that talent and demonstrate to Tobago youth that this can be a viable and sustainable career

Massive respect to Terry Williams who has been one of those that work tirelessly and in virtual anonymity doing their bit to keep that fire burning in the sister island.

If this turns out how I hope it can....Trinidad AND Tobago will benefit.

True. There are many decent players in Bago who have to come to Trinidad to break through. My only concern with a Tobago team in the Pro League is the cost of travel, which everyone would be worried about.

How is it handled in the Super League where you have Phoenix, Stokely Vale, and Bethel United involved?

Valid.

The argument is....when you have to play CONCACAF Champions League.....how are those travel costs dealt with?  Do qualifying clubs receive some sort of reimbursement from CONCACAF/CFU?

Are all costs covered?  Some?  If so, which costs are not covered?  How do the clubs cover these costs?

Teams pay their own way in CFU.

In CONCACAF you get US$40,000 per away game. But this didn't cover Centrals visit to LA or Connections trip to Mexico. Remember, the Champions League has a lot of sponsorship and TV rights.

Keane came on at half time. Gerrard didn't play. It appears Dos Santos was man of the match, providing at least 3 assists.

It's interesting how both Connection and Central were heavily criticised for losing their opening games by 4 goals. And, perhaps, rightly so, despite the fact that they were at the very start of their pre season.

So it was interesting to see Barcelona lose their Super Cup First leg 4-0. I'm sure that the Barca coach and players would not be claiming poor preparation due to lack of funds!

I hope that Connection can get some kind of result against Saprissa to make the home games more interesting.

Tobago FC Phoenix 1976
Breaking News: For International Release


American Sports Management Company PMI acquires ownership stake in Tobago FC Phoenix 1976
through innovative partnership connecting Tobago FC Phoenix 1976 to the world

FRISCO, TX _ The next stage of life for Tobago FC Phoenix 1976 includes joining the United States based Playbook Management International (PMI) family.

PMI has partnered with Tobago FC Phoenix 1976 Club Director Terry Williams to develop the new direction and branding for the Caribbean football club. The new partnership took effect on July 1, 2015.

PMI, led by American executive Michael Hitchcock, owns and operates the Fort Worth Vaqueros FC minor league football club. Additionally, PMI holds ownership stakes in professional English club Alfreton Town FC and the Professional Futsal League. PMI utilizes sports technology products such as the PMI Player Marketing System, a cloud based player marketing platform, that will be used to market Tobago FC Phoenix 1976 players to clubs around the world.

Williams said the partnership with Hitchcock and PMI serves as a dream come true for the island based club.
“I can remember the vision of four young boys back in 1974, clearly as it was yesterday and approximately 38 years later, that vision has manifested,” Williams said.

“I am indeed thankful, that Mr. Michael Hitchcock and the team at Playbook Management International, shared our vision and took the opportunity to partner with us to further develop and promote the sporting discipline of football in our beautiful island of Tobago.

“Over the years, Phoenix has produced a cadre of players that had the opportunity to represent their country with pride on the Trinidad & Tobago National Team. Phoenix also boasts the birthplace of international football player Dwight Yorke, as he attended our Academy from the tender age of approximately 7. He further went on to the National Team from the approximate age of 15.”

PMI will bring its knowledge of American sports management principles, technology, marketing, sales and global network of contacts to Tobago. The newly formed partnership will allow for shared ideas, training, players and sponsorships between Texas, Tobago and England.

PMI’s goals for Tobago FC Phoenix 1976 include reaching the highest level of football in the Caribbean, growing the club's successful youth academy and creating opportunities for the Tobago football players to play internationally.

Hitchcock said Tobago has become a special place to him on a personal level due to the people, the food and the culture.

“On a professional level, I believe in Tobago and feel that there is a great business opportunity. It's football in paradise and we have an opportunity to connect Tobago Football to the world,” Hitchcock said.

“Our vision is to become the top football club in the Caribbean. It will take time and lots of hard work but we know that there is a great opportunity to build something very special in Tobago. Terry and the Tobago FC Phoenix 1976 Staff have done an incredible job with the club. We plan to bring additional resources to build on the solid foundation that has been created.

“Full credit to Terry Williams for having the vision and ambition to take this club to the next level; we look forward to being a part of it. The future is bright for football in Tobago.”

Through Match Day Five, Tobago FC Phoenix 1976 is currently unbeaten to start the Trinidad & Tobago National Super League.

Breds, a defenders MUST be able to take pks. As a matter of fact, every body on the field. That should be a routine. Part of the football DNA. Every players must practice at least 10 pk a day. If you are a professional more than 10. No excuse. Everybody must be able to kick pks. BE PREPARED. No excuses.

I agree totally...however the order in which the team takes it should have been better planned out...imho defenders should go last...


FS...question...since 06 infant recall anyone getting into the UK...namely the PL and Championship...jones to my recollection is/was the last player...what's the situation in regards to permits,trials etc...I think Joevin had a trial with some Italian side about a year ago...and he was sent packing...just landing a trial is a big deal...

It seems that most of our boys going to Finland or Asia...is it because of their agents don't have the proper contacts?

If your country does not have a sufficient ranking or you have not played a lot of internationals in the last year, you will NOT get a trial in the UK.

You notice, Eastern Europe, Belgium and Holland are not a problem.

EU countries like Belgium and Holland get around this by classifying footballers as specialist employees. However, to qualify as in that category, you have to be given a contract with a decent minimum wage such as 5,000 euros per month. The problem then is that a young player has to be exceptional to be worth that amount of money when they have dozens of EU youngsters who would play for 1,000 euros. (Levi Garcia being an example)

We just simply don't produce enough quality players to get into the European premier leagues ahead of the locals.

77
This fool Sancho can't even run his own club.

I heard they own money to the contractor and the lighting is poor.

What a fool, they can;t even use their own home field.

They fixed the stadiums so Kamla could host UNC campaigns.

Harrison is a vulture sucking the people of T&T and fooling them with his bush accent.



As usual, yuh information is bad. Yuh boy Jack so out of touch now he even gets gossip wrong! Talking of sucking up...how is Mr Warner these days?

78
Wasn't Peter Rampersad the same accountant that was involved with Jacko? Why is he being mentioned in the same sentence with the ttfa? If it is true he is one and the same, why are you thanking him?

So de new TTFA hire de same ole staff?

That's explains a lot how the TTFA is run, no new fresh blood and a bunch of ole men stuck in de stone age. Rampersad probably still have a blackberry, he and Muhammad.

So FS, de National Stadium fit and ready?

Lights will be completed this weekend so we're good to go.

Greg Rutherford blasts ‘ridiculous’ British kit for world championships

The Olympic long jump champion Greg Rutherford has made a series of stinging criticisms of the redesigned British vest for the World Athletics Championships, which begin in Beijing next week, calling the new kit “ridiculous and wrong” because it omits the famous Union flag.

Not since 1997 has a British athletics competition vest for a major championships not carried the traditional red, white and blue flag somewhere in its design. And Rutherford, who is among the most popular and forthright members of the squad, believes that is a major mistake and says that every athlete he has spoken to agrees with him.
 
After tweeting a picture of the new kit on Thursday afternoon, Rutherford called the decision “stupid” and jokingly threatened to bring British vests with the flag stitched on it to Beijing with him. “I’m proud to be British, so this is a terrible choice,” he said. “If I could take a flag-loaded British kit with me for everyone I would. This new kit is ridiculous. It isn’t a British kit anymore. It’s promoting British Athletics the company.”

Why is he back in TT til November? If he's part of the club and there's a problem with his age, wouldn't they play him in the reserves or with a youth team to keep up his fitness? Maybe I missed something but the article makes it sound like he did preseason and now is off til his birthday. Doesn't make any sense.

No offence to Fuentes but he's not the best reporter in terms of details..

I think I will ask Lasana if he could do an interview with Levi to get the real scoop as to why he is out for several months.. That way we will get a in depth report on what happened and why the long lay off..

I wonder if it was a visa issue? Maybe he could only get a visitors visa for 4 or 8 weeks? When he goes back I guess he would have a work permit (although I did think that EU countries had similar work permit requirements as UK-just no so harsh)

82
I heard that the ttfa met with the Oval to have CONCACAF Champions League matches play there because SPORTT and the Ministry have been unable to meet lighting standards for HCS. This is due to contractor being owed for past jobs and they wont install lights until paid.

They also assisted Central FC with visas to fly to the US to play LA.



Really? There has been several missed deadlines due to problems with the contractor. I can't speak for W.Connection, but I do know that Central F.C. have given no authority to TTFA to negotiate with The Oval on their behalf. I have seen no communication between CONCACAF and Central F.C. concerning use of the Oval and, to my knowledge, no CONCACAF site visit or lighting test has taken place there.
Finally, there was a meeting at Hasely Crawford today concerning hosting both of Central F.C.'s Champions League games, including provision of security, concessions etc.

I appreciate the assistance of TTFA in dealings with CONCACAF. Also with their assistance in obtaining US visas, which was, I believe, provided by Peter Rampersad.

Horner, I will hold my tongue a bit. You make some points. Why is Central an embarrassment to TT. This the club first outing. This club eh even 4 yrs, you jumping on them. Yes, Joe Public did well and I and many on the forum were very proud of their performance. But where are they now. The problem with all things in TT is to maintain success. To be consistent. Only two teams have made a level of consistency. It is Connection. And to some extent DF. Though with the quality of players they have had over the last four years, they should really be running things in TT.

I have issues with Sancho, but he is not a clown.

Army will be very good this year. When Central played them in the Pro bowl they looked very solid.

Without browsing through the thread I bet Football Supporter and Jumbie defending San-ko like dem lives depended upon it  :D

Just a few more weeks for the bacchanalist Sank-ko to end his drama filled MOS tenure

I would be interested to know who you would like to be PNM Minister of Sport?

FS.....I will not answer this question but I will state only this, even If TTFA organization and coordination skills were in tip top shape(which it isn't)....dotted every "i" and crossed every "t".........there would still be undue pressure and an undercurrent of sabotage because of tim kee politics it is the MO of the UNC.....Griffith being a noted though short lived exception.... dem is Sancho boss and he himself have ah axe to grind

As I have stated before, there are many ardent PNM supporters within the Ministry, and no doubt, many UNC supporters too. Neither group receives "orders" from political parties, both groups love football and both groups are disillusioned and unsupportive of TTFA in its current format.

My self and the Permanent Secretary receive no orders from the Government regarding sporting organisations.

I cannot profess that Sancho tells me all that is discussed in cabinet, but it is my belief that Kamla and co have more pressing business than RTK. In fact, I will go further in that when evidence appeared that RTK was privy to Warner's financial capers at TTFF, there was no interest from the government in pursuing it or using that information for political gain.

Now, I'm not saying that either party are above mud slinging, but this fight between RTK and Sancho, while I still believe is politically motivated by RTK, is nothing to do with the People's Partnership.

right due to what..........

the organizational bungling...........I will back you their

the inability to source funding outside of subventions..........we discussed this.....TTFA reputation in tatters due to TTFF/JW......politics at state companies

I would agree that if the FA wants gov't funds it should be more forthcoming in its financial affairs.......but up to recently Sancho was suggesting using gate receipts to pay players.....dat is non starter given the state of the product being sold again TTFF REP AFTER JACK/06 in tatters.....though I think TTFA missed a genuine opportunity to market the product for GC....dat CNMG stream was ah waste of time and d effort much to late if u ask me........but I digress.....what do u think would be the the MoS position on "funds set aside" most likely answer would be "use dat" irregardless of what it was intended for, given the relationship as it has stood over the last 5 years......is it right to withhold info of said, if it is being done, No, but with the ministry possibly willing to cut any submitted budget based on that...............


The idea of the gate receipts was put forward by the previous Permanent Secretary because he was tired of receiving requests for debts incurred by TTFA and suggested that if there was any profit from the game which was effectively being funded by MoS, then they should go towards debt repayment.

I agree about funds set aside except in this case there was a cabinet note which could only be used for Gold Cup. Therefore, any income generated could pick up the  shortfall and the remainder could be used for future projects (which is actually what happened)

central made a big mistake by not rehiring Vanes the only coach in T&T that has proven that he can coach on the international level losing 5 - 1 from a Galaxy reserve side is not a good enough ,hiring a local coach to coach on the biggest stage was a stupid decision they are probably not going to win 1 game.

ffisback, it's probably a good idea to understand exactly what you're criticising before you type. Vranes is Technical Director at Central F.C. Like Russell, Vranes was also overseas on National duty with the U23's.
Perhaps the mistake that Central made was allowing their coaches to support the National teams?

Also, Russell is the first local coach in Central's three year history. Rix, Fenwick & Vranes. After each appointment, Central were criticised for not appointing local coaches, and now you're saying that they should. Go figure.
