De Four spoke very optimistically about rebuilding but that was largely cast in the context of rebuilding a team as it remained on a competition footing. Now that elimination has occurred, he may be faced with the crude awakening that doesn't place a high premium on the WNT ... that is, until the next competition is lurking around the corner.

I suggest strongly that the players from the retiring generation of players take full ownership of the destiny of women's football, not just to protect their legacy but to push the game. Football played by women is a specialized area of the game and the Toms, Dicks and Harrys of the world need to be made to understand how the thing should be run.

Nothing will change if the retiring generation of players are not invested activists and decision-makers.

Trini locals i swear have a real complex, they like to think more of themselves than they actually deserve credit for. I was in trinidad recently and the people are so aloft and extremely self important with no real care for that country, it’s all about what their country can do for them and never the other way around.

I could actually see why they are so insecure around foreigners including their own people (expats) who no longer lives there. expats are actually more patriotic than the trinis who live there and wants better for the country, not saying that there aren’t locals who are patriotic, but they’re in the minimum.

I listened to my cousins and how they blame the govt for every little thing that goes wrong, even though for the most part govt ministers are very hard at work trying to fix what they can with minimal resources, and when i asked them how many of them or their friends actually volunteer their time to a worthy cause they all went mum.

 as it stands, the new federation (if they’re able to dethrone DJW) has to pair up with a sister federations in europe or south america if they are to get football academies build and staffed with well trained coaches, they also need loads of sponsorship to get that league up and running well. i don’t envy those who’s coming to the hot seat because that’s what it’s going to be, a very hot hot seat after DJW gets off it, but that’s what’s needed to restart TT football. no more local coaches those guys are poisonous.

It appears that none of our national coaches want to shoulder the blame when our teams—men, women and boys—fall short or turn in poor performances. It’s always the players, the schools, the clubs and now TT WOLF at fault. 🔥🔥 🔥

While the current TTFA admin and coaches must take responsibility for this debacle, there is some truth in their defense. The quality of players our pro-league producing is not up to par for our national team to face regional teams. In past,  TT team has won the CFU Cup on a couple of occasions using mostly local players. And that was before the pro-league. We have not won a CFU championship since the pro-league started. Correct me if I am wrong on that.

That is as far as I will defend them. This year because of the confusion brought in by DJW and the proleague,  TT football had to play in a minor league.  TTFA not in charge of the proleague. The proleague and the TTFA can't  get themselves together. What were the women doing? The women are an after-thought. They were doing practically nothing. No intensive competition. They tried an intensive preparation for the tournament but they got schooled by St. Kitts. And that team was coached by a woman from the US. Pushing some wood in the fire. So Mr. Defour and the TTFA ..... own up.
