Wonder if Latapy still collecting paid and where he is coaching now seeing that both his teams inactive now?

I bet you he will join some Pro League team.

Stern John coaching Central

Stuart Charles coaching W Connection

Shabaaz coaching Morvant.

Every team failing under the current admin.

Latapy, Shabaaz, Lawrence, Isa, Stuart Charles, Stern, Ross you name it, these guys are terrible.

Nice write up Flex.

Latapy never believed in friendly games, I remember that Costa Rica game.

Good going by the TTFA, I hope they build the fields right, drainage is a big issue.

Would love to know about about the Player Accommodation Hotel (how much rooms and so on) and other stuff they will have on the facility.

Excellent work by the TTFA, hopefully we will get a few regulars for this game is possible.

To late to experiment at this stage.

Shabaaz milking David John Williams.

A terrorist controlling T&T football.

Only in T&T, in the US, this man would have been serving a lifetime all now.

Imagine somebody shoot up the Prime Minister of a country and walking free like a bird today.

Football / Cheating in Football.
« on: May 31, 2017, 05:45:36 AM »
Culture of cheating.
By Fazeer Mohammed

Many explanations, most money-related, have been offered as to why cheating is such an established aspect of football that variations of dishonesty are so well practised as to border on being celebrated as high-class skills in their own right.

Of course the world’s most popular sport is not alone when it comes to coping with the rising tide of devious behaviour among its most prominent participants. It just seems though that the game’s authorities have given up on sanctioning players who engage in more acting than all of Hollywood and Bollywood put together.

Maybe it’s because the virus, which was always part of the game, has developed to a global pandemic of such proportions that if everyone attempting to fool the referee and his assistants in some form or fashion were sent off the field for most high-profile games these days there would hardly be anyone left on the pitch.

Football is such a multi-billion dollar business now that its superstars are given the same sort of treatment as the most popular entertainers in the music industry: indiscretions are celebrated, there are no consequences for utterly reprehensible behaviour and, conversely, it is the officials who are roundly pilloried by an idol-worshipping array of journalists and broadcasters unwilling to acknowledge how fundamentally corrupt the sport they love and make a healthy living from has become.

Even the altering of the language of the game to sanitise the flagrant cheating reflects the extent to which one of the very fundamentals of football—fair play—essentially no longer exists.

Already on a yellow card from earlier in the game, Chelsea’s Victor Moses was sent off in Saturday’s English FA Cup final against Arsenal at Wembley for the commonplace tactic politely known as “simulation.” It has become the accepted term for the now widespread practice of players pretending to be fouled either to win a penalty or to get an opponent yellow-carded or sent off altogether.

It probably has something to do with the legal ramifications of describing an action as “cheating” that other terms have cropped up. What is unforgiveable though is the way media personalities behave, always with the benefit of hindsight and numerous television replays, in going after the officials for “poor decisions” when they themselves were unsure of the offence when describing the action in real time.

This is not meant to excuse sub-standard officiating for that is an entirely different story, something we are acutely familiar with after the erroneous disallowing of Joevin Jones’ strike for Trinidad and Tobago against Mexico in the World Cup qualifier at the Hasely Crawford Stadium two months ago.

But when those who are described as respected voices and personalities in the game continue to mollycoddle cheats while at the same time pour scorn on officials who will inevitably misread some of the acting—given that it is done so often and so convincingly—then it should be no surprise that at very grassroots of football, children who can barely kick a ball are already learning the art of diving and constantly pulling on their opponents’ shirts.

Even when their dishonesty is exposed for the world to see they are still hailed as heroes and exemplars. In the final round of games in the Spanish top division just over a week ago, Neymar earned a penalty for Barcelona at the Nou Camp with a dive that was so poor in its execution that replays showed him to be some distance away from the lunging defender when the Brazilian initiated the well-practised process of collapsing spectacularly to the ground.

It hardly ever looks so clear-cut in real time and real speed which is why the referee was fooled. So the official attracts the criticism and Neymar gets away scot-free. If such incidents ever come up in any analysis in the media environment it is often minimised as “part of the modern game.”

Look, football and cheating have gone hand-in-hand, literally, for a long time, as Diego Maradona’s infamous “hand of God” goal in the 1986 World Cup quarter-finals for Argentina against England in Mexico will attest. At least then there was a measure of embarrassment with the player studiously avoiding any discussion of the incident to media outside Argentina for years.

Now it’s taken for granted as exemplified by Maradona’s fellow-Argentine Paulo Dybala writhing on the turf in pretend agony only to get up and sprint towards goal when the ball rolled in his direction during the second leg of Juventus’ European Champions League semi-final against Monaco in Turin earlier this month.
Still, Saturday’s final in Cardiff between Juve and title-holders Real Madrid will attract a huge global audience with enough real skill on display to mesmerise us into accepting the attendant cheating as just another dimension to the presumed beautiful game.

Geoff Cameron, Fabian Johnson and John Brooks is solid defenders, Cameron will man mark Kenwyne and knowns him very well from Stoke City.

Nagbe, Pulisic, Wood and Altidore have lots of pace.

Bradley and Beasley little old, so they might be easy to contain.

Yedlin is fast but his final play is poor.

Clint Dempsey is very good, but he can be temperamental, we could bait him so he can be caution early in the game.

Tim Howard is still very good.

We have a good fight in our hands.

T&T must not overplay the ball especially in defence.

USA don't know much about Nathan Lewis, Jomal Williams, Hashim Arcia, Akeem Roach and Jamille Boatswain, so they can be of some use.

T&T Senior Men win training match in Colorado.
TTFA Media.

Trinidad and Tobago’s Senior Men were 1-0 winners over Colorado-based club FC Boulder in a training match at Prentup Field in Colorado on Sunday evening.

A 51st  minute goal by Mexican-based forward Shahdon Winchester separated the teams as head coach Dennis Lawrence used the opportunity to see how the current players in camp responded to a game situation at high altitude following five of days at training ahead of the World Cup Qualifier against the United States on June 8th at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park.

The goal came from a good build up stemming from a pass by Daneil Cyrus to Nathan Lewis on the right side as he cut inside the Boulder defence before playing into the box for Akeem Roach to square for Winchester to slot home from close range.

Boulder campaigns in the Premier Development  League (PDL) and provided a good exercise for Lawrence’s men. In the first half, T&T maintained better possession with Hashim Arcia and Roach both having decent chances on goal. Midfielder Jomal Williams saw a right footed free kick from 20 metres out crash off the cross bar while substitute Jamille Boatswain went close late in the match with an effort which went inches past the upright.

T&T will continue preparations on Tuesday with Russian-based defender Sheldon Bateau and Belgium-based midfielder Khaleem Hyland both joining the camp.

So I guess the warm up with Colorado Rapids never happened.

Well I heard that Elisabetta Bavagnoli and Manuela Tesse quit their jobs.

USA is very possible to beat, we just have to not give them chance to gain confidence in the game cause they will get better during it.

Take out Dempsey, Pulisic and maybe Altidore, the rest of players is not anything special.

Give credit where credit is due.

The TTFA doing a pretty decent job.

An official home

Youth teams playing and training.

Senior team in Denver early.

Women team active.

Grassroots in order.

I just don't like some of the people there, like Issa and Shabaaz, but everything else is good.

Top stuff Flex, really good write up, I like your enthusiasm, but its going to be hard like stone.

The lack of preparations is also a problem, but I know the FIFA Window is a problem to.

Here is what I feel

USA v T&T - Lose = 3
Costa Rica v T&T - Lose = 3
T&T v Honduras - Win = 6
Panama v T&T - Win = 9
Mexico v T&T - Lose = 9
T&T v USA - Tie = 10

10 points total which may not be good enough, but it depends on the other results.

Few mistakes I saw, the player who was passing the ball to another player, he had to move towards him to pass it because players not making themselves available, so right there, you take 2/3 players off the game.

Secondly, Kenwyne should never be on the wing, leave him center where he is very effective, he should have never been taken off.

T&T was playing to much in the middle, they need to know when and how to attack.

Being a goal down and trying to play like Barca makes no scenes.

According to Flex report, Mexico missing a good few stars, this is the right time to beat them. I could tell you thank God Giovani dos Santos, Jesús Corona and Andres Guardado missing.


A Hot Air article a lot of nothing was said. Depending too much on the government WILL lead to the now inevitable pro league closure.

Is not depending on government help.

Is what they have earned, prize money.

The government gave the league prize money, right?

Fair is fair, they won it.

All the other clubs got theirs, why not Central?

For 3 years they got nothing.

Does anyone know how you can join one of these TTSL clubs for the new season?

I have a nephew, 21, he lives in the US, the man is a solid left back and I would love for him to team up with one of these clubs.

Any help would be good.

Thanks in advance.
