Dear Mr Latapy
« on: December 01, 2010, 06:18:50 PM »
First off, I would like to thank you for stepping up to the plate and proving your love for not just football but also your people.  We fans all know that football is not an easy business to maneuver in Trinidad.  So we sincerely say thank you for all that you have done within your tenure as coach.  Latapy, I believe I speak for many fans of T&T football when I say, you will always be loved and cherished as one of the greatest players in concacaf.  Brother, at times we might cuss you but the truth is, we love and support you.  It can be argued by many pundits that success for you as our national coach was never in the cards. 

However, as fans we believed for the magic of the 'Little Magician.' :) We hoped for a fairytale ending and what better leading man but you Latas.  Sadly, this isn't the movies, the end isn't produced in favor of the key characters, there's no one to say "Cut, let's do that again".  Unless you're a certain character in T&T football.  ;)  Nonetheless, we think it's time to resign, don't wait for them to fire you.  Don't wait for them to play this out and scandalize you.  You deserve better.  We're in favor of a change but not at the expense of demoralizing your efforts for your country.  Everybody makes mistakes, hopefully we can learn from them.

Trinidad football is like a very tough equation to solve.  Latas, way better coaches than you have failed at solving it, so as you review your tenure take everything in measure.  Life is what you make it. 
So as fans we applaud you Russel Latapy and say thank you for your service as coach of T&T, we wish you the best and hope to have you around T&T football for years to come.

God Bless
In Everything give thanks for this is the will of God concerning you.

 ... also Dear Latas,

I wish to thank you for contributing to the thankless nasty job of T&T senior team football coach, to be in the firing line of an ungrateful public who mostly sees a footballer who chooses to sweat for little reward, as fit for ridicule as a shittong, even if the same youngster were to try his best, in stark contrast to de armchair waggonist analyst on say de forum who often eh do squat as any form of national service. If you decide to step dong, on your way out please let the public really know what's going orn behind de scenes, so anybody following won't get unfairly roasted like how you geyyin'. Tell them:

1. What games and internationals you asked for and did not get.
2. What explanation Scamps gave you for how TTFF managed to be broke again and cyah afford a warm up game unlike all the other Digicel teams at that crucial point just before the finals.
3. Whether the players and staff were getting paid and if not, why, knowing the potential devastating effect on morale in these hard times.
4. Why is it so acceptable to lynch the coach and not the administration which will continue to choke all future coaches unless they have the leverage of Beenhakkker who told Jackula HYMC.
5. How much blacklisting pressure you were under, if at all.


I have more questions to pose later.

I do not think latapy will be fired.

every journey has setbacks, they need to give him a few years and see what we can get.

It is not like we are favorites to make the world cup so realistically we are not risking that much.

The side played well in Trinidad , went to martinique

Started bad, Lost while playing with 10 men.

Lost to a wonder goal from Grenada in a game we created chances enough to win the game comfortably.

Beat the host to mentally recover from the initial devestation


right there that is an improvement.

We have to remember this is a young team.

They have been having problems on the road and it will take time for them to learn how to execute away from home.

Patience is what is required.

Latapy is doing the right approach and hopefully he will be given the full 4 years to try to develop the squad.

in 2013 when we not in the world cup we could assess his job at that time to see if he is the right man to build for 2018.

We need to be realistic.

At this point in time we do not have players capable of competing at the top level in concacaf.

Hence this squad will not make the world cup or even go far in the gold cup even though they should have moved on from the group.

Long term planning and patience is what is needed.


man want to bring a "Mourinho coach" to come here for 2 years and take a bunch of money and walk away when TnT does not make the cup.


I rather give the money to latapy since he will be around we football for the rest of his life.

He also has a vested interest in the development of youths and our future.

Stick with Latapy

I understand the sentiments yuh expressing, but they are fanciful ... even from Russell's career perspective "a few years" would be better spent elsewhere.

On top of all ah dat, doh ignore that patience has an expiry date. You willing to give a blank check re: time, but not one re: $$$$/ Yuh convinced that one is less harmful than the other, ent?  .... Not so pardnah. In the end is a fail same way.

The truth is Results/ Results/ Results/ every Coach knows this in every Sport.
 The other Truth is most of the players on this Team wil not even be on the bench come W/C qualifiers.
 What is needed is good scouting and bringing players back in a Camp situation and start playing friendlies during the FIFa International dates.

Dreamer and College we ALL know the TTFF is ultimately responsible for the mess T&T football is in.  However, Latapy took a job HE must have known he was not qualified for.  Now that he has failed miserably is time for him to go!!  I'm not so sure what is so weak about stating that.

He is getting pound just like when we pounded Maturana, BSC, and whoever else got pounded before I reach on this forum.  Latapy do shyte and he's getting called on it. Simple.
