futbolfan, though topics are not personal on this page, this is a joke between me and Triniman really. So your attitude is really not called for. I assure you. I wrote the topic just to hear Triniman come out of retirement so take it easy grasshopper im sure you have been around long enough to retort on the topic but you should have also been around long enough to know that This topic was my initiation on this site so by now it has become household between me and triniman and couple others.

And by the way, the only people that has what it takes to make the team are the players that Bennie-man selects.    Personally I think that Dawrika, Sealy, Mc Farlene should be looked at and look Eves getting a second look.  Someone said yesterday that it is now a Team ting  not an individual ting no more.
That means any man can make if he compliments the Team.

Marvin Oliver joins Caledonia's midfield as Denzil explores options abroad.

Crab Connection's Marvin Oliver back in top flight.
By: Randy Bando (ttproleague.com).
[/size]

Veteran midfielder Marvin Oliver formally of Super League Club Crab Connection has joined the ranks of Pro League Club Neal and Massy Caledonia AIA on a two year contract.
Oliver who played for Pro League Club North East Stars in the earlier half of the 2006 season before returning to Crab Connection back in 2004 is now back in top flight with the Morvant based team.
The 31 year old midfielder is happy to be associated with Coach Jamal Shabazz and the Club he started off with as a youth player with.
Oliver told ttproleague.com, I am very happy to be associated with Coach Jamal Shabazz again. He has always looked after me as a player when I was at the Club as a youth player back in the late 80s and early 90s. I believe teaming up with coach Shabazz now can be productive on the field and off the field for me as a player.
The midfielder is now set on winning titles and securing his position with Caledonia AIA in the 2007 season saying, Im looking to win some trophies with the Club this season, also consistency as a player with Club at the highest level and putting out the same winning attitude I had at Crab Connection.
The dreadlocked player admits he will always be part of Crab Connection but sees his move as graduating from one level to another.
I dont see my move as leaving Crab Connection. We are from the same Morvant/San Juan community and Caledonia is similar to Crab Connection because of their community background and they have the same goals, just that one is Pro League and the other in the Super League. I dont feel bad leaving Crab Connection because I would always be a part of them and I know I will have the same community support when I play for Caledonia. Its just that I am graduating from one level to another, ended the midfielder.
According to the Technical Director of the Pro League Club Jamal Shabazz his World Cup player Densill Theobald has hinted on exploring other options outside of Trinidad for the 2007 season hence his reason for signing the Oliver.
Shabazz told ttproleague.com, We needed a player who can carry the team just as Densill Theobald did in the past.
Were not to sure if Densill will be in the country for much longer and we see Marvin as the player who can set the field alight. Densill has hinted to us that he would be looking at some options outside of Trinidad and Tobago in the short term and thats where it stands right now. He is keeping things very close to his chest, said the Guyanese national coach.
I believe Oliver is one of the best midfielders in the country and he represents what Caledonia represents which is talent and promise.
Being at Caledonia it would help his game physically and tactically, and once he improves in these two areas, he is going to play a part in Trinidad and Tobagos World Cup 2010 campaign, said Shabazz.
The Caledonia Technical Director is also holding the hopes of having both players in the team for the 2007 season saying, Once Densill is here we would always love to have him and it would be a dream to have both Theobald and Oliver in the Caledonia midfield, ended Shabazz.

This is good news for me to see another one of my students of the game progressing,Marvin is a product of my Coaching school when i was back home,he was about 9/10 yrs old,dominated the colleges with SanJuan Snr a couple years after i left T&T,he is a player i always followed because i often used him as an example(Football that is) for players in the San Juan,Bourg Mulatresse,Santa Cruz areas,i used him to instigate the San Juan players to win the Islandwide Intercol this year when i was home,Marvin could have done even better than he did in the game,he just lacks the support that goes with it(agent/manager).

Like Coops I have seen Marvin play in the Aranjuez Savannah and every where else. Good to know that he still around. As for Denzil all the best boss.

Coops you know this youth have absolutely no discipline.  The guy can play, no doubt about that.  Discipline has always been and probably will always be a problem.  He is influenced by the wrong people and I am surprised that he is back at this level.  Don't say that he lacks support from an Agent/Manager, that is totally incorrect.  When Marvin chooses to grow up and be a man, he can be as productive as he wants to be.

Until then, he'll be another very good player that went to the wayside.  No sympathy from me.  The guy needs to grow up and do something positive with his life.

      I did not want to go there because i don't like saying in dept things about people,Marvin is like my son and if you know where he come from,his family upbringings,his struggles with school (education) i can go on and on about this guy,sometimes we look at people and think why they could not be a certain way always remember there are a number of reasons for it,you ever heard Marvin Oliver speak?he is (tied-tongue) i'm not saying that's an excuse but all these things affects,i used to personally pick up Marvin and Hector Sam and take them to my Camps/Practice their parents did not care,at times even something to eat,so when i talk about agent/manager i really meant someone who could have guided him in life.

The man 31 years old. I wish him luck in the PFL but I hope it have a young player who can deny him a spot on the national team. If he is good enough to make the national team and reallly brings something extra to the table, more props to him.

Why has Marvin Oliver not been called up for training?

I have notice that 19 players have been invited to prepare for a friendly next month, but Marvin Oliver was not invited, now as a coach and strong supporter of our national team I would like to know how these coaches go about selecting these players, now this player ( Marvin Oliver ) if not the best, is one of the best players now playing in the league and I am not saying this just because I am a fan of him, his performance so far in the league, proof that he should have been on the gold cup team, at present he has won more man of the match than any other player since the league started, he also won player of the month and he's has been selected on the all-star team of the month back to back so far for the season. Marvin inspiration, desire and contribution for his club has seen their team no lower than second since the 2007 season started, yet Marvin was not invited to prepare for the gold cup tournament and now this friendly international. They the coaches say they looking for the best local players, if my stats on Mr. Oliver is correct, then he is one of the best local player in the league at present, so coaches, please tell me out of these 19 players selected, Marvin Oliver achievement and contribution in the league is still not good enough to even be considered for selection on our national team.    concern citizen.

Coach Rijsbergen was asked why Oliver wasn't being selected for the National team and his response was that as T&T were building towards 2010, any additions to his established team would be younger players.  If per chance an older player who was playing football at a high enough level were to come into the picture, he may consider them as well.

It might seem kinda harsh to some but that's the reality.  At 31, a player tends to be on the downswing of his professional playing career UNLESS he is playing at a level where he is playing top class football week in and week out.  Even then, 31 is still "old" in international football terms.

Guys forgive me if you all find i'm sounding a bit harsh but Marvin Oliver is like a son to me,it's not the first time but every time his name comes up about being overlooked the same things are being said about him,can it be said may be he has changed his act a bit,for someone to be consistently playing the way he is there must be something right he is doing,not everybody know his background,where he is from,the life he lived,i personally that guy a lot of credit for what he have done and where he is today,it could have been worst,i check Marvin every time i'm home just to see how he is doing,i'm not saying he should make any national but if he is playing well he should be considered.

while i agree with the notion of preparing for 2010, i kinda feel it should be revised to preparing for 2008/09 because thats when our world cup qualifiers happen... and given that, i see no issue in giving an established 31 year old player a chance if he's performing at a highly consistent level as the reports and accolades suggest...

i just dont see the point of dashing oliver by the wayside if we could squeeze a 2-3 years out of the player, and he will also be great for the early qualifiers against the smaller teams when it would be tougher to get the foreign based players available...

The little games I have seen him play in he has done very well, in fact topping the class in the PFL, for whatever that says. A digicel selection would have been good. Or even a run in the Gold cup. He was definitely playing at a better level for Cali than Jemmot for Rangers in most games. He does not quite have that vision for penetrating long passes that Jemmot has but he can make quick accurate short passes even under heavy pressure. And he defends fairly well for an attacking player. He not embroiled in personal issues that like Jemmot. For qualifying it is about results too so lets see if de coach will at least invite him to tryouts at some point to assess his abilities. As far as the age thing, it probably simplistic to bring up Milla, BUT our pool is small, Rijsbergen needs all the resources he can get. He obviously knows what he is doing far more than all of us here but I feel he go take a closer look at Oliver sooner rather than later.
