Yes.  Just heard it on the radio....how old is he?  Ent he late 20's/early 30's??....but good for him.  Andre Asharvin kinda old too but he doing well in the EPL so who knows.....

He's something like 27/28. They could still get a good 2 or 3 years out of him.

Give Derick King some kudos for allowing the man to showcase his talent as well as motivating him. See what a good coach can do? Now I read this in the Guardian today and I think the reporter got a little carried away about King"s future prospect re the national Team. However With Jack as head of Joe Public and head of everything in T&T football , one never knows.

Don't expect much to come out of this trial. I was very impressed by his performances this season but he does not have the physical frame to play in England nor does he have exceptional speed to compensate for it. I expect to see him playing in the PFL next season but I wish him all the best on his trial. If Jake Thmpson can play in England Kerry might just have a chance.

Not that I disagree in general, but, from what I remember seeing when he played on the wing, KB always struck me as pretty speedy.

I get what you say about developing young players but we are in no position to discard players who are good and fit.

That makes good sense the man is 28 and people ready to discard him ... shows what they know about the game

Dreamer,
                           The reason why Baptiste was on and off the team is because he was not performing. he appears to be a late bloomer, unfortunately. He also got into the team when the campaign was doomed. He also playing for the special advisor team. So how come he was not on the TT team all along. Look, I glad for the man. I hope he make good use of the trial and get onto a team. I wish he went to Spain, but beggars can't be choosers.

I hear you Deekos, but part of the problem in a self-loathing society like ours is the philosophy of you-is-a shittong-until-anointed-as-somebody-by-a-farrin-club-in-Hingland" mindset, that refuses to see our players through a different lens.

If next week, somebody says player X is real hot. A large blog population will reflexly say: Who de ass is X. Keane never call he and he never get a trial since age 25 so no way he could be anyting but pure shite and de day he land on British soil and before he even smell a fleckin' fish and chips, man saying yeah he deserve to be on de squad now as if by flying towards to de promised land, man does geh transform. Steuppsss.

Trini is not the only place where we are highly critical of some of our players. I hearing about baptiste for the longest. And he was just okay. now the man just blossoming into a big star, after the campaign done . Blame the TTFF and the different amount of coaches they hired. He just got lost in the shuffle. But again, good luck to him in the future.

By the way, I don't think Carlos is the reason he is not on the team. Kerry is a striker. he competing with KJ, Cornel, Stern. Carlos is a utility player who played below par this campaign like the rest of players on the team.

He's a striker this year. He has always been a right winger.

Well the thing is, being a star in T&T is equivalent to being a big fish in a small pond.

I don't think we should cry anybody down but at the same time I think we must not rush to big anybody too much and too fast. Because there are also a lot of good footballers in T&T who had people around them that made them feel they were great - and they developed an "I reach", "big player" attitude that worked against them reaching their real potential.
