The way forward: food for thoughts
« on: September 01, 2017, 08:45:24 PM »
Russia 2018 campaign is over. I am sorry. Time to start doing things the right way for the next cycle. 👊 Some food for thoughts:

1- hiring an experienced coach teaching tactical discipline and defending

2- always pick the players available who are playing lots of minutes in the higher level available leagues. But also be mindful, being a rotation player in MLS or Mexico is much better than being a star in remote non-football countries like India.

3- Avoid TT Pro league based players at all cost until they first go play in a club abroad and prove they can belong. If really needed, call up only 1-2 of the youngest TT Pro league based players from the U20 to round up the roster.

4 - The National Team should never be a mean to an end, in other words a mean to showcase TT Pro players so they can get a contract abroad. Rather the other way around, first the player goes and proves himself abroad, then he gets an
opportunity at the senior national team in official matches. A local based squad for non Fifa dates can be formed.

What is the playing style and developmental philosophy of the Trinidad and Tobago national team pyramid?

Anybody could even start to articulate that?

We hear a lot of talk about grass roots and NLCB funding but all we end up seeing is glorified screening sessions... If anything even happens at all.

How are the developmental goals and benchmarks of the TTFA communicated to the various clubs and stakeholders in T&T? Who holds the stakeholders accountable?

What are these developmental goals at each age group? What situations should a youth player be able to resolve and when?
