Lots of people stating KJ not performing up to par when he play for the Warriors because he is not getting the proper type of service.  Ok this may be true, but how long we gonna continue with this method.  It is obvious the voom kick style they trying to implement is not working for KJ or T&T. Why do they continue to bring him in the fold.  Is it becuase he is the biggest name player on the team and there is some hope he will draw a decent crowd? how many games gone by now and they still "experimenting"  with this tactic. If ur gonna include Kj u have to have crosses coming in from both sides, not from our goalie and defenders.  This whole voom kick style is not working period, but adding KJ to this is just baffling.

KJ can't hold up the ball, smaller defenders does outjostle him, he not fast. he is just a waste of time in my book.  We have a problem in midfield and we have problems up front.

Our team didn't tackle and try to make their presence known in the defense. Seem like they were escorting the Peruvian players in the box.  The entire team gotta get a little more physical.  It even affectd us on the offensive side, Cornell Glen spent most of the game complaining cause he got brought down a few times. yeah he took a few knocks, but nothing really flagrant as the way he was carrying on.  He complain and complain until I think they he got carded.  That's how the game is played. like you said its not flag football.

Ministry of Sport blanks senior footballers

Story Created: Oct 4, 2012 at 12:06 AM ECT

Story Updated: Oct 4, 2012 at 12:06 AM ECT

Trinidad and Tobago football has hit a new low.

Six years after playing in the 2006 FIFA World Cup, the Soca Warriors will not compete in the Caribbean Cup--unless a major sponsor comes forward in the next week. This comes after the Ministry of Sport, headed by Anil Roberts, blanked a $423,218 request from the T&T Football Federation (TTFF) to fund the team's participation in the opening round of Caribbean qualifying, due to take place in St Kitts-Nevis.

T&T are due to play French Guiana on October 10 in Basseterre, Anguilla two days later, and hosts St Kitts-Nevis on October 14.

But on Tuesday, the marketing arm of the TTFF received notice from the Ministry, which indicated it will not support the senior team, based on T&T's elimination from World Cup qualifying by Guyana, last November. The Ministry's position was relayed by Permanent Secretary Ashwin Creed in an e-mail to Anthony Harford, who heads the TTFF'S marketing arm.

"With regards to the support for the senior team you have been informed on several occasions that the Ministry focus is on development given the abysmal performance of the senior team," Creed declared. "As you are aware there is a note before the Cabinet to treat with the way forward for football. This note is predicated on two consultations held on a development plan for football. The Ministry will be guided by the recommendations of this note following the approval of Cabinet."

T&T is the most successful country in the history of Caribbean football, having competed in all 17 tournaments, winning eight times. Jamaica have won five titles. The Caribbean Cup is a qualifier for the CONCACAF Gold Cup, which serves as preparation for FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Yesterday, Harford informed the media of the Ministry's shock decision not to support the national team.

"TTFF marketing wishes to advise that it has received a negative response to the request for funding the airfares and allowances for the senior national football team to participate in the first round of the Caribbean Cup. The email response came from the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Sport, Mr. Ashwin Creed, who pointed out the ministry is concerned with development because of the abysmal performance of the national senior team," Harford said. "TTFF marketing, which is charged with the responsibility for marketing and events at the TTFF put in a request for airfares, including the return of five overseas-based players, player and staff stipends, a weekend camp before leaving, and accommodation for four persons, as the Caribbean Football Union (CFU) pays accommodation for 25 of the party of 29. The total requested was TT$423,218."

Harford told the Express that while talks were ongoing with potential sponsors, nothing was confirmed. He said that while the TTFF had raised some funds earlier this year, all went into the preparation of the Olympic men's team and under-17 and under-20 women's teams for qualifying tournaments.

"The TTFF is severely strapped for cash as there has been no Government funding since March and the sponsorship funds raised to date have supported the under 17 and under 20 teams both of which played their qualifiers without Government support. TTFF marketing has learnt that the Ministry has since paid one bill for the under 17 tournament, but this has not been communicated to TTFF marketing nor the TTFF by the Ministry. It is understood that this invoice was just over $250,000 and paid directly to a hotel. TTFF marketing is continuing its drive to meet the other outstanding invoices for these national teams, including payment to other hotels, coaches, catering and transport."

This Guy Marchan is the Worse ever...Yes other goalies throughout tnt history collect they fair share of goals...but nothing as crazy as this.  Most of the goals against TNT in this tournament have been all his fault.
I never really saw him in action before, but this my friends is atrocious..
I understand that he can just be having a bad tournament..well if that's the case...then they need to take him out of the tournament. Or ah wonder if they still experimenting???
How good is the other sub Keeper? and what is the real deal with Glenroy Samuel?..He looked a lot better that this guy.

And here you have the reason why we need new leadership within the TTFF.

Corneal here admitting all the hardships they had to endure for years, but at the same time condemning the players that actually trying to stand up and fight against this same type of treatment.

Is either him and the older heads within the TTFF are just brainwashed....or they jess to blasted chupid!!

ok...wait somebody clear this up for me...
If the gov't is providng funding for the u23 and u17, and they only getting $200 per game. Then the problem now... is the gov't not providing enough money?
Cause I think I read in another Article, Anil Roberts stated that they will be paying all invoices directly. These invoices don't include player's salaries?
or is it the gov't just blindly giving money to the TTFF and the TTFF is assigning monies to the wrong people.

This is friggin insane. I truly don't believe Fuentes made those statements.  "they could not get in contact with the player?????" and now implying the player is being dishonest......ah mean.......... come the F#$% on!!!!!!

If Fuentes came out in public and made this type of comment, he should not be representing the TTFF. he make dem look real bad and incompetent.....

I dont believe Fuentes made the comments in the context being reported....ah mean I don't know for sure........but it cyah be that way???    na man...

Soca Warriors beat Guyana 2-0
By Ian Prescott

Story Updated: Nov 15, 2011 at 11:02 PM ECT

The fabled 12th man was most absent, but Trinidad and Tobago's Soca Warriors still managed a 2-0 victory over Guyana in their final match of the failed Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign last night at the Hasely Crawford Stadium in Port of Spain.

After a dull, goalless first half, the Warriors won on second half goals from captain Kenwyne Jones and forward Lester Peltier.

By the time the Trinidad and Tobago national anthem was played just prior to kick-off yesterday, there were 116 spectators in the uncovered stands, among them three yellow-clad Guyanese supporters and four policemen. Ten more stood outside the player's tunnel, while another 300 or so fans were in the covered stand, including infuriated nutsman "Jumbo", who was questioning the patriotism of T&T supporters.

Later, Jumbo donated $50 for every goal the Soca Warriors scored.

Trinidad and Tobago coach Otto Pfister made four changes to the team which lost 1-2 to Guyana on Friday night, giving starts to Carlyle Mitchell, Osei Telesford, Kendall Jagdeosingh and Hughton Hector, replacing Keon Daniel, Chris Birchall, Khaleem Hyland and Julius James.

But the first half had the intensity of a friendly, before the Warriors turned it up a bit in the second session.

Trinidad and Tobago had greater possession, but lacked attacking ideas. At the same time, the home team always looked vulnerable to the quick Guyanese counter-attacks.

Although the first half ended without a goal, T&T still had a couple of good chances to take the lead.

Both midfielder Kevin Molino and skipper Jones ran clear on goal, but could not beat Guyana reserve goalkeeper Richard Reynolds.

Molino had the best chance in the 29th when sent on by Lester Peltier's flick, but the goalie's feint touch was enough to turn the ball wide. And in the 36th Jones met Hector's straight through ball, but Reynolds blocked his shot.

T&T defender Mitchell also had two free headers from Hector's corner kick, including a downward header which was cleared off the line in the eighth minute.

For Guyana, an unmarked Dwain Jacob had a free shot which went wide from atop the penalty area in the 14th and striker Dwight Peter got by defenders Seon Power and Mitchell, but hit straight at T&T keeper Marvin Phillip, who had little other work on the night.

Jones finally gave the Warriors the lead in the 58th with a clinical low shot from atop the penalty area. And then in the 65th Peltier's pace allowed him to intercept a Jones pass and he scored to make it 2-0 from close up in the penalty area.

But that marked the end of another World Cup campaign for Trinidad and Tobago.


Trinidad & Tobago: 1.Marvin Phillips, 20.Seon Power (Yellow 41), 3.Carlyle Mitchell, 4.A Adams, 6.Osei Telesford, 11.Carlos Edwards, 12.Kendall Jagdeosingh, 13.Lester Peltier, 15.Hughtun Hector, 16.Kevin Molino, 9.Kenwyne Jones (Captain) (10.Hayden Tinto 81st)

Them guys in the studio mad....talking bout another coach would have gotten the same they forget just the other day we was losing to the fricking "spice boys"
That's a local team though, i honestly think our A team should put atleast 5 on all the teams in our group, However even saying that still backing we coach Otto only 2 games from a long long long time since our A team was together.

I also reckon when we get that LB situation settled out with Samuel o whoever and Edwards back on the right we going to see a big difference Edwards been our most important player for a long time now he being taken out of the game by this position...

I was hoping we woulda give dem bout 5 as well...but we winning regardless.  I could understand if we lossed or even drew the match... Right now we have no choice but to be positive and hope we show some improvement in the games to come....

Football / Some Pics from Egypt
« on: October 02, 2009, 12:33:55 PM »
Alright allyuh...Ah reach back from Egypt safe..sorry for the delay, but here some pics from the opening game.

We saw no other Trini supporters while in Cairo and had to take a train to Alexandria for the opeining game.
We had a hard time getting to the stadium for this one, as the president of Egypt was making an appearance, and all entrances to the stadium was closed from 2pm.  Allyuh hear what ah say...2pm!!! Game to start @ 8pm.  Police blocked all entrances in a 15 km radius, no entry even if yuh had tickets.  Our driver tried everything, but them police over deh not playing with they president. is gun, dog, and barricade.  Ah say nah boy this cyah be happening.  We try for about an hr and a half and gave up at about 3:30pm.  The driver said all he can do now is take us to a nice restaurant or a bar and we could catch the game from there.  Wifey say nah!! drop we off we going and Walk!!!  Now ah know we was disappointed and everything...but WALK ...15 km in the Egyptian sun, by we self, both ah we dress like de TNT Coat of arms in what could be hostile neighborhoods. .......Now every married man on this board know we does have to put dong we foot sometimes...Fellas ah use one of my times at this moment.  Ah say nah nah nah nah!!!! we not walking...the driver didn't recommend it either. 
Oh Gosh what we go do!!!! ah done have de tickets in meh hand.. fuss ah excited!! and now we can't get in.

Now this is why ah love this site, while we in the taxi circling the area to try and get thru, ah remember seeing the Radisson, but I aint pay it no mind. Is only when I was about to tell the driver to take us back to the city to watch the game on tv.  Wifey said maybe we should go to the Radisson...BESS IDEA Ever...She redeemed herself from that Walking notion proposed earlier.  Now I remember while in the hotel in Cairo I was checking on this and an article stated the warriors checkd into the Radisson in Alexandria...hmmm ah wonder boy!!
Ah tell the driver take us to the I had to argue with the driver to take us there, he feel we should go and wtch the game on tv..jus give up.
After some heavy talk we finally pull up to the Radisson, it was like a breath of fresh air...when we pull up at the top of the hill by the entrance .....all I see over yonder was the Trinidad and Tobago flag flying in front the hotel.  People they had we flag flying over that hotel like we own feel like we reach on Home soil..We drive up some more....big stinking bus in front the hotel mark Trinidad and Tobago u20...As far as getting into the game I didn't know what we was going to do from then on, but at least we could see some friendly Trini faces over here.

We walk straight to the lobby where 3 guys with tnt shirts were sitting. It looked like they were part of the technical staff/tnt media. We went over to them and tell them what the situation was.  Now we didn't expect them to go out of their way for us, at least if we can't see the game live we could at least see the team before they leave the hotel.  Now one of the guys. who said his name was Tony, i met him in Cairo also before Italy's game. lft us for a few minutes and came back. He said there is some supporters leaving the Radisson @ 6pm to go to the game, we could probably leave with them, as they might open back up the roads after they get the president in. Now if the roads were blocked frm 2pm.. wasn't too sure how they would get in, but at this point we have nothin to lose.  Up to now don't know if those people made it to the game.

We ordered another car to try again @ six. jus so happen when the team boarded the bus our car shwed up.  The team bus and our car lft the same time.  Our driver put his blinkers on and stated what his plan was.  He was going to fllw the bus straight to the stadium and act as part of the motorcade.  We followed and follwed to the first road block and as i entry still at this time. For regular cars that is...
People.... we were escorted thru all the road blocks with the team bus by three police cars and an ambulance.  De driver plan work, it work so of the police cars fell back and rode behind us.

hundreds of people with tickets could not get in to see this game and we got in  The stadium was jam packed. some people said they were there since 10am. It was maddness. Even though we lost, it was one of my best moments as a supporter ever!!! will never forget it.
All the Egyptians I spoke to thought Trinidad and Tobago is located in South America and they were espcially surprised when I gave them the size and population numbers.  They liked Rochford and Akeem Adams' hairstyle and was very respectful..but that could very well be because they drop 4 on we!!!  Don't know what would have happened if we won.
Lucky for us the same driver who took us to the stadium. took us out as welll. He said the police would not let him leave after he dropped us off, he had no choice but to sit and listen on the radio. 

Enjoy the pics
