ronnie mauge..that is the funniest thing i see in a while....this is a difficult topic because I heard a lot of great things about players like BobbY sookram, Lincoln Phillips, Jan Steadman, Leroy DeLeon, Steve David, Warren Archibald, Alvin Corneal, etc...but I have never seen them play..so me picking a best XI would be pointless...I am looking forward to posters like Coops and the other forumites who have actually seen these guys play and probably played against them....In the past 20 years, probably only Yorke and Latapy will make the best XI.


        This is the hardest thing to do,anybody who can come up with a best T&T X1 that will satisfy everybody i'll give them the Humming Bird medal,the reason it's so difficult for most is they came around in different times.
          I know i've played and seen a lot and there were players before that i heard off but did not see,i'm not even going to attempt to name a team because it hurts to leave out such good players.
           It's a good Topic though,from the teams selected you get an idea of who now start looking at Football and who watching it long time,who played the game and who did not,who like quality players and who like dandy men,who could be a good Coach and who can't.
           What i'm trying to say is when people look at players they all see something different,that's the reason for all these different teams being posted here but i like that,you can see from this how difficult a Coach's job is.

I eh see enough of the old timers...but certainly...Corneal, Gally, De Leon, Spann, Lellwyn, Pat Gomez and Tiger Phillips deserve consideration.

How many of you have heard of Babsie Daniel AKA "Dribbling Jesus." or Roy Seon....legends from the 1940s who ppl were still writing about up to the 80s and 90s.

Anyway from the last 25 years.

                                      Shaka

B. Williams                           Dog ....  Whitley                Ainsley Weekes

 Angus Eve                           Nakhid.......Latas                 L. Lewis


                                            Yorke/Stern(the 1999 version)

Subs: John Granville, Ince

Marvin Faustin
Hutson Charles
Clayton Morris
White boy
Terry St. Louis
Clint Marcelle
Ron La Forest
M. Alibey (doh laugh)

Anybody who see Eve in his younger days would understand why he dey. Back in the 2001 qualifiers...he had Mex looking sorf as hell, as he constantly just ghosted past them.

The problem with the wingers is that they were poor crossers, this is why I started with Eve ahead of Marcelle. I was tempted to put Yorke as left winger, but how can you ignore what he did with MU as a striker.

Truth is if I had this team I could mix and match...but this is just fantasy anyway.

Remeber this is just form the last 25 yrs.

vb...interesting you call Roy Seon. He was way way before my time but I met him about 20 years ago in England. My parents and some ole timers can stop talking about him as probably the best dribbler of all time from TnT.

        I can't say if Bert should be mentioned or not but will say he is the best dribbler of the ball i've seen in T&T.

Storeboy,

pay attention to the posts nah.

Some of us chose only from the last 25 years.

It real easy just to throw in one name.

Try picking a team, with subs..see who you would leave out. It's not that mundane.

Ah see men picking side, with players they never see play, so I decide to join de fantasy too.

                   
                                          Tiger Phillips

B. Williams                          Dog/Garnette Craig                 A. Weekes

                                         Latas/Nakhid

L. Lewis                                                                         L. DeLeon

                                         Yorke/Gally

Subs
Joey Gonsalves
Shaka
Bert Grell
C. Morris
Skinner?? from Trinity College
Leroy Spann
Marcelle
Birchall
J. Nixon
Alvin Corneal
Steve David
Ron La forest

I honestly think Bomber Theodore and Rougier should be considered. Roug was the perfect utility man...defense, midfld or even up front...and speed to boot.

I've heard a lot about Tesheira, Archibald and some of the other oldsters, but just don't enough to rate them. On my first side up on top, I totally forgot about Craig, Skinner and Nixon for a squad of the last 25 years.

Pick your all time fantasy team. It must mostly comprise of pass players but can also include a couple current players (preferable no more than 3). If you would like, name your subs as well.

3-5-2 formation

                                                  Clayton Morris

                                     Richard Theodore - Dick Furlonge     
                                                       
                                                 Dom Basil Matthews

                        Terry St. Louis - Clint Marcelle - David Nakhid - Leonson Lewis

                                                 Ian Clauzel - Dwight Yorke

                                                             


Subs

Earl Carter
Leroy DeLeon
Warren Archibald
Sedley Joseph
Carlton Franco
Russel Latapy (I giving him a beenie)  ;D
Brent Sancho


Flex, I want to hear your squad now. I have a bomb squad here (with real depth)  :D

Duscam and Trinione, so because Latas on my bench my team is shit? I is the coach and I have real tactics up these sleeves  :D  Is Italy team shit? Is France team shit? Is Argentina team shit? Is Mexico team shit? Watch the players they had coming off the bench in the world cup. That is the key to any great team; a lot of depth and tactical moves.

This is always difficult especially since it don't have that many old heads here.

I mean a best ever T&T team without mention of Carlton Franco, Dilbert Charlo, Raymond Maraldo etc.
Man talking about Tiger Phillips a man who was good yes but gave up some 12 goals in 6 games for T&T in Qualification?????. What about Shaka Hislop, Kelvin Barclay. Nakid before, Aleong, Leon Carpett or Tony Douglas, Wendell Moore was a better player than Nakid. No mention of Bert Neptune. I could go on but once I see names like Clauzel I have to bow out.

This is based only on players I have seen either first hand or on video and in posistions I find they have or would have given their best performances for T&T. Many others could be included based on what I have read, namely Warren Archibald, Lincoln Phillips, Bert Grell etc but, never saw them play so..here goes:

                                          Hislop

    Carlos Edwards....Brian Williams....Marvin Andrews....Marvin Faustin
 
                                    Dwight Yorke

           Leonson Lewis..... Russel Latapy....Leroy DeLeon
                                       
                                  'Gally' Cummings

                            Steve David.....Stern John

Subs.
Earl Carter (sorry I always preferred Carter to Maurice)
Dexter Francis
Jan Steadman
Clayton Morris (as Def Mid only!)
Evans Wise (when not too over indulgent with the dribbling)
Leroy Spann
Clint Marcelle
