Can't understand why Sunderland can't win, they play pretty decent football.

Maybe they need to come on preseason in T&T and sign up one or two young talents.

TTFA faces $3.5m lawsuit from Corneal.
By Walter Alibey (Guardian).

Of the coaches who benefitted financially from their work through the court, was former midfield maestro Russell Latapy and recently Dutchman Whelmut ‘Wim’ Rijsbergen, who will be paid after the court ordered that former president of the TTFF Oliver Camps, to sell one of his properties to pay him.

Interesting, Camps made it sound like he was loosing his only home.

Bunch of smart men.

Levi is be called up by Hart, we really need to refresh our team.

He has been playing a few games well and might be fitter than many of our players.

This is no joke but a funny reality.

Didn't know Darryl Smith could eat 20 doubles.

Birchall retired.

But he is willing to pay his way as an escort for Inniss because I can't see the TTFA doing it, then why not.

I say this kid is a very good prospect and have a long future.

Time to cap him.

Seeing how T&T played in our last game against Haiti i have a different opinion about the thread topic now eh

Very true.

The article was excellently written but Flex give them men to much credit, but the headline needs to be change now to.

It's becoming easier to make the T&T team.

I don't even think Ivan Sampson was in Benedict's in 1990...

Signal Hill win so much championship and only one man from Tobago get least they could have given something to Colvin Hutchison..

Naps win champshionships in the 70's ...not one outstanding player for the period? least they could have given something to Kern Dass...

Very true.

88 and 89 era, Benedicts and Pres was tops.

But Signall Hill win everything.

I feel Pres and Benedicts was a better team overally but Signall Hill had Yorke who was just to good, they were a one man team.

Can't see David John Williams supporting this as he may want to push for W Connection players.

I know for sure that Randy Wardrum won't be coaching T&T anymore.

Jamaal probably had a say in this.

What !!! wonder how the women players will take this especially if Shabaaz come back, the terrorist who have disrespect the women players in the past..

DJW probably aiming for 2022 for the men's, by then his W Connection youngsters will be fully matured and we will have a full slate on the national team.

They release Waldrum and didn't even have the respect to publish a letter thanking him for his service. We have game next month, I wonder who they plan on bringing in?

My guess, Charles or Shabaaz, another disaster waiting to happen.

When DJW cried on Fuentes video after he won, I felt the man was really patriotic about T&T.

Apparently he have a motive, by 2022 expect W Connection players and coaches to take over.

I think he was holding back the last sub for extra time. Cato should start in front of Peltier although Peltier started to improve in the last 20 minutes compared to his last 7 games

The game is guaranteed 90 mins long.

Holding back?

Jose Mourinho use to hold back until he ended up holing a backseat.

Male players Jones and a big shock Hyland there too.

If T&T had won the game, no one would have had a problem with Hart selection.

There is no way he could know who will play good or bad on game day, especially when the players he picked looked good in practice.

These players just did not play how they was supposed and instructed to.

I mean, how on earth they could send a man with a team to play one of our most important games since Bahrain and not even play a warm up, even if some of the players were missing.

Lets look,  Jan-Michael Williams, Marvin Phillip, Daneil Cyrus, Radanfah Abu Bakr (was on vacation in T&T), Neveal Hackshaw, Shahdon Winchester, Rundell Winchester (was home on vacation) and Ataulla Guerra are all based home.

Then Lester Peltier I think was also home on vacation?

Not sure about Aubrey David and Carlyle Mitchell

Cordell Cato, Kevan George, Trevin Caesar, Mekeil Williams and Joevin Jones season was over, so they could have made it earlier.

Jonathan Glenn and Khaleem Hyland was on winter break, I think?

Now if all of my assumption is right, why wasn't something done to have them play a warm up even if it was against W Connection?

These players have to make a better effort also, this game could have benefitted everyone !!!

Hart is not a magician, the man get thrown to the dogs time and time again.

Flex, spot on.

But I feel you letting Hart off to easily.

He may have gotten the selection right but his game tactics and formation used in such magnitude of games during games is very disappointing.

Against Haiti, we should have beaten them easily even if they are a physical team because we are technically better and could have done the damage to them early were it would have taken away a lot from them and drop their confidence. We play against physical teams and did well in the past. Lets not forget this was an understrength Haitian team.

The last 15 mins of the game and Hart did nothing to improve his team and also failed to use one of his sub in a game were you needed to win and not worry about scoreline.

He seems like he just don't want to get embarrass again like he did with Canada, so his approach is very tacky.

Other than that, I know we can't win every game, but at least we could play better.

I really do like Hart and I hope he learn from this and move on and up.

Good luck Mr Hart.

You have my 100% support.

I hope you finally drop some of these inconsistent players.

Sam, I hope is a joke you making here because that will be a backward step.

Soccerman, your friend John Williams is on a mission.

I was so happy to see Club Sando beat W Connection.

I hope everything connected to them falls apart.

I really hate David John Williams if this is true talk.

Don't agree with everything Jack Horner say here, but plenty make sense.

The players are a big let down.

They can't accomplish anything.

They may win a game or two, but they can't accomplish anything, they just don't have the mentality to do it.

Hart wasting time on players like Hyland and Cyrus.

Cyrus should be move to the right wing.

And Hyland for being the most senior capped player, is a lala.

We need more vocal players on the field when Jones is not here.

Boucaud had a off game, but he is much more consistent, he should have been captain.

I can't understand why the defensive approach in a must win game and especially against a team ranked below us?

Coaches who play like this is more afraid to lose than go for a win.

You have to know your players capabilities.

When you have Kenwyne you can get away with one striker on top, but Glenn can't do the same, he needs someone next to him, this is why he did well with Cummings on the field against Mexico in the 3-3 tie.

Hyland and Boucaud don't seem to play well together either, there is no creativity in their play especially from Hyland. Maybe one could play more wide or maybe they can play together providing we have a creative player around them and not George?

Cyrus is awful, can't understand why Hart puts some much faith into him and Hyland? They are very inconsistent, I say, sure, pick them but don't be afraid to sub them either?

I simple 442 formation would be nice.

So why didn't Tim Kee pay him when he was there?

Tim Kee is such a two face.

Everyone neglecting the mention that they should all go after Jack Warner instead.

Tim Kee talking about  sponsor he was getting over 3 years now.

His online store he and Sheldon paid his son over 10,000 US to build is still not working, the store is close, I had to buy a shirt from Amazon.

Tim kee has a lot of properties, he should give Camps one if he so concern.

Oliver Camps is no fool, he knew what he did and now he is paying the price.

You can't tell me he didn't know anything about Jack books?

When the players went on strike, what did Camps do?

Darryl Smith is another fool also, how is this a matter of the TTFA and will have to be sourced by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and not the government?

FIFA Corruption Case Brings Another Wave of Pre-Dawn Arrests

ZURICH — Swiss authorities began a new series of pre-dawn arrests Thursday in the broad investigation, led by United States officials, into corruption in international soccer. More than a dozen people were expected to be charged, law enforcement officials said, nearly doubling the size of an already huge case that has upended FIFA, soccer’s multibillion-dollar governing body.
Some of the arrests took place at the same luxury hotel where other FIFA officials were arrested in May. Swiss police entered the hotel, the Baur au Lac, through a side door at 6 a.m. local time. A hotel manager told visitors in the lobby they had to leave the property because of “an extreme situation.”

The police were targeting current and former senior soccer officials on charges that include racketeering, money laundering and fraud, authorities said. The new charges were expected to hit South and Central American soccer leaders particularly hard, the officials said.

Alfredo Hawit of Honduras and Juan Ángel Napout of Paraguay were among those arrested, multiple people familiar with the investigation said. Hawit is the president of Concacaf, the regional confederation that includes North and Central America and the Caribbean. Napout is the president of Conmebol, the South American confederation. Both are FIFA vice presidents and members of the powerful executive committee.

Hawit assumed control of Concacaf last spring, following the indictment of Jeffrey Webb, the confederation’s former president. Reacting to the allegations contained in the United States indictment unsealed last spring, Hawit said in a statement that he was “profoundly disappointed” that the organization was once again “the victim of fraud.”

The arrests, coming as FIFA’s leaders gathered in Zurich, served as a high-profile reminder that despite the organization’s promises of reform, soccer’s top officials remain under intense legal scrutiny by the investigation.

“FIFA became aware of the actions taken today by the U.S. Department of Justice,” FIFA said in a statement. “FIFA will continue to cooperate fully with the U.S. investigation as permitted by Swiss law, as well as with the investigation being led by the Swiss Office of the Attorney General.”

The full roster of people charged Thursday morning was not immediately clear. Law enforcement officials said the list did not include Sepp Blatter, FIFA’s longtime president, or Jérôme Valcke, his suspended deputy.

Swiss authorities confirmed on Thursday morning that they had taken two FIFA officials into custody and that those individuals were accused of accepting millions of dollars in bribes related to the sale of marketing rights for World Cup qualifying matches and soccer tournaments in Latin America.

Local authorities in Zurich were expected to hold hearings for those two individuals later in the day, Switzerland’s Federal Office of Justice said.

The apprehended people may submit to being extradited to the United States immediately, but if they oppose it, authorities said, Switzerland will await a formal extradition request from American prosecutors within 40 days.

In May, United States officials announced charges against 18 people of 12 nationalities. They described two decades of corruption in which officials rigged World Cup bids and steered marketing and broadcast contracts in exchange for bribes — paid out through convoluted financial deals and briefcases full of cash. Mr. Blatter quickly announced plans to resign.

The United States Justice Department was expected to unseal indictments in the case as early as Thursday morning, according to several law enforcement officials who were briefed on the case and spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the investigation. F.B.I. and United States tax agents, along with federal prosecutors in New York, have spent years building the case against FIFA. They promised this spring to rid the organization of corruption.

Melanie Newman, a spokeswoman for the Justice Department in Washington, had no comment Thursday morning.

United States authorities have long predicted more charges in the case, but the number of people involved — nearly as many as were charged in May — was not expected.

The arrests came about three hours before members of FIFA’s executive committee were to begin the second part of their two-day meeting to discuss governance reforms. The mood among the soccer officials after Wednesday’s meetings was mostly upbeat; one high-ranking official said there was a “sense of purpose” from the leadership during the meetings, a feeling that the reforms would be a strong step in the right direction after the turmoil of the past six months.

On Wednesday night, a group of about 40 to 50 soccer officials — including the executive committee members and their spouses or companions, as well as many top FIFA administrators such as Markus Kattner, the acting secretary general, and Marco Villiger, the organization’s chief lawyer — attended a lavish dinner at Sonnenberg, an upscale restaurant known for its view of the city. A wide array of choices were available — the restaurant is known for its meat dishes — and afterward a number of officials went to the bar at the Baur au Lac for the customary nightcap.

The hotel, which sits along the banks of Lake Zurich, gained notoriety after it was the site of the arrests in May but has had a long relationship with FIFA. In the aftermath of the May arrests, FIFA approached soccer officials who were coming to Zurich for business trips in subsequent months and offered the choice of booking accommodation at another hotel in the city (provided, of course, the rates were not substantially higher than the negotiated package rates FIFA receives at the Baur au Lac, where rooms for the public start at $650).

A few officials accepted the offer, choosing to stay at other hotels, such as the Park Hyatt, during meetings in July and September. For the most part, however, tradition ruled and, despite its history, the Baur au Lac was full with soccer leaders yet again this week.

As one official, speaking in the lobby of the hotel on Wednesday, said, “Things change slowly around here.”

Members of FIFA’s executive committee are meeting in Zurich this week to approve a set of reform measures. The group is under pressure not just from investigators but also from sponsors. Five World Cup sponsors, including Adidas, McDonald’s and Coca-Cola, signed a letter this week urging FIFA to ensure independent oversight of the reforms.

A new election to select a replacement for Mr. Blatter is set for February. He has been under suspension, along with several other top officials, since Switzerland announced in late September that he was the focus of a separate criminal inquiry. Several other countries, including Brazil and Trinidad and Tobago, have opened investigations of their own.

This spring’s arrests were met around the world with a mixture of praise and derision. Many soccer fans were thrilled that American law enforcement officials had set their sights on FIFA, which had been dogged by corruption allegations for years but faced few consequences. Mr. Blatter, however, said the charges were retribution for United States’s not being chosen to host the 2022 World Cup. “It doesn’t smell good,” he said.

More broadly, the case raised questions about how the American government interprets its own authority to prosecute people for crimes committed overseas. To do so, the law requires some link between the crime and the United States. In the FIFA case, the government said American banks were used in the scheme. That has been enough to establish jurisdiction in other cases, a precedent that has been particularly useful in prosecuting international terrorism suspects.

Whether or not an American courthouse was the ideal venue for the case, Justice Department have said, it became clear that FIFA was operating corruptly for years and no other country was doing anything about it. “They clearly thought the U.S. was a safe financial haven for them,” Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch said this spring.
Sam Borden reported from Zurich, and Rebecca R. Ruiz and Matt Apuzzo from Washington. Michael S. Schmidt contributed reporting from Washington, William K. Rashbaum from New York and Calum MacKenzie from Zurich.

That's funny..

T&T investigating corruption, I guess the world doesn't know T&T very well.

« on: December 02, 2015, 06:10:16 AM »
I think John Sabga and Colin Murray would be good choices.

Not to confident in Sheldon Phillips and incumbent SSFL Azard Khan, if you look at the SSFL how it deteriorate over the years on and off the field and the rules how it affect teams especially the weaker ones, the format is also very confusing and unorganised.

Williams should bring in a new team which should include a new press team as well. Flex is a good candidate for that and Lasana too.

He should not hire any former TTFA/TTFF employees, especially the ones who worked under Jack Warner.

John Williams is elected as New President of TTFA.
By Shaun Fuentes (TTFA).

The Trinidad and Tobago Football Association has a new President in David John Williams following his defeat of Raymond Tim Kee for the position at the FA’s Internal Elections on Sunday at the VIP Lounge, Hasely Crawford Stadium.

In the second round of voting, John Williams received 25 votes to Tim Kee’s 19 while a third candidate Clynt Taylor received one vote. The elections went to a second round because no candidate had 50 percent or more of the votes. Forty five delegates were present for voting with North East Stars and Point Fortin Civic Centre both failing to show. And there were no representations from the Coaches or Players Association which are non-operational.

After Round one, John Williams was ahead with 18, followed by Tim Kee (13), Taylor (8.) and Ramesh Ramdhan and Selby Browne with three each. Both Browne and Ramdhan were eliminated after round one.

John Williams maintained a fair advantage to take the post in Round Two.

The three elected Vice Presidents are Ewing Davis, Joanne Salazar and Allan Warner, all members of John Williams’ slate.

The Board of Directors also elected following a lengthy voting process on Sunday night are Samuel Saunders (Central FA), Sherwyn Dyer (Eastern Counties Football Union), Karanjabari Williams (Northern FA), Richard Quan Chan (Southern FA), Anthony Moore (Tobago FA), Joseph Taylor (T&T Football Referees Association), Dexter Skeene (TT Pro League) and Sharon O’Brien (Women’s League Football).

After more than 20-plus years under the same administration, central football has gotten a new executive. On Wednesday night, at the zone’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) and Election of Officers at Woodford Lodge, Chaguanas, businessman Shymdeo Gosine was elected unopposed as president of the Central Football Association (CFA) for a four-year term.

I thought Shymdeo Gosine won the CFA seat?

I guess Yaya not come back, because Sharon O’Brien is still here.   :devil:

Congrats Mr Williams, I wish you a successful 4 year term.

I also hope to see you work with SWO and the fans a little more.

Good luck.
