Coop's,

I know you would remember him.  You hit it on the head.  My most vivid memory of that tour was how Aloi destroyed Anim David and Winston Phillips (Bee).  Man, he had Anim David spinning like a bobtail dog.  Yes, he came down the right side - near the pavilion end.  I know Bee is your boy, but he was a bruiser too.  The team was Nautico.  Edu was on the Brazilian schoolboy team that came to Trinidad in the 1960s.  I believe they even beat the national team.

       All yu fellas brain better than mine boy,you and SH recollection real good,SH you know those days it was difficult for us to go Skinner Park to watch Football so we missed out on a lot of Football being played there,but any thing in the North/East could not get away even if we had to storm,i remembered when Chelsea came,does Wolverhampton Wanderers ring a bell anybody, i think they came to T&T also.

Henry and Vieira were here..

I just miss them at the barber shop by 15 mins..

Are you serious ?? I heard Edgar Davids was there too ?

I say these players...

Eddie Johnson, DaMarcus Beasley, Clint Dempsey, Landon Donovan, David Suazo, Antonio Careca, Bebeto, Ricardo Rocha, Jared Borgetti, Pavel Prado, Cuauhtemoc Blanco, Antonio Naelson, Walter Centeno, Paulo Wanchope, Luis Tejada, Julio Medina, Pele, Franz Beckenbauer, Carlos Tevez, Theodore Withmore, Nolberto Solano, Maximiliano Lopez, Niko Kranjcar, Deigo, and Alan Shearer.

Didn't Ronaldhino came to T&T before ? that's when Yorke under 20 team beat Brazil before going to Portugal in 1991 ?

Anyone know if Rafael Marquez ever play in T&T ?


man go from here wid dah f£$kery...steups

Jai John,

You are good.  Who are you?  You are on target.   After Eloi, that was one of the greatest performaces I saw.  The Howard left winger was Mori Diane.  Howard drew against the national team in the Oval.  Mori really starred against the Defense Forces at King George V Park.  It was a combined team of all the defense forces.  It was a night game.  That was the game when Charlie Spooner swung the right hand at him.  I am sure Coop’s played in that game.

SH memory long in truth. Ask him which was the other team that come with Chelsea? They was in the English second division at the time  ;D

Crystal Palace?

One of the foreign players who made de biggest impressions on me was a young fella from de same Corinthians team dat did come down wit Socrates.  De fella was amazin.  Was tipped to be a nex Brazil Superstar but den like we eh hear nutting bout he too much again.

I cyah remember he name but he twas tall, black and deadly.  Midfielder.

Pele was poision when he play in de oval....ah cyah remember who dey put to mark him but Pele end up goin all by de T&T corner flag when play was in de Santos goal area and de man who was markin him went wit him too.  Funny no tail.  Until de tear gas anyway.

Oddahs who make a impression dat I could remember was

Charlie Cook
Ian Wright
Vince Hilaire
Babu Mani (a Indian footballer....he wasn't good but he was a novelty and had some skillz)
Hagler from Jamaica...dat man used to kick dong wind.  De epitome of de wile jamaican footballer
Entingh
Omberg de Surinam captain (de best left foot I ever see LIVE)
Roy George
Phillipe Vorbe
Henri Francillon
Emmanuel Sanon

as usual Tallman you are on the ball. I remember when he came to Trinidad and his first trial for ASL ( I believe he played for Fulham or some other Arima team before this ) was at the woodbrook youth centre....a lot slimmer then .... we sat next to each other waiting our turn to try out and talked a bit ...mine never came .... too many big names too little time ...I wonder if he remembers that....

But how alyuh could leave out the big belly Brazilian side that play the Warriors the other day.

Then they had a tournament with some old men a few yrs ago in the stadium. Intl ting. Dwight Yorke was a guest player with the TT team.

One of the Bent brothers pass tru I remember watching them play a pfl XI or Joe public in the COE yrs ago.

Then they had the Brazilian side our under 20s beat...juninho was on dat side.

and lastly...

David Rocastle RIP

This was a nice thread that I missed out on.

Going by Sams original post, I am going to assume he meant, ppl to have actually played in TT and perhaps in their prime, not in some Masters tournament.

Well the Flamenco the World Club Champions in 1982, just after the WC, with Zico, Junior and Eder.

A few months later, Socrates with Corinthians.

Hotspurs with Hoddle

Arsenal with Jennings. Never see anybody make Pat Jennings looks so dotish. But he starred big time in the 82 WC a few months later.

Those were my last few years in TT and I got spoilt watching big names come to TT on a regular basis.

It probably would have continued if JW didn't fack up Arthur Suite.....STEUUPPS.

Peace,
