i basically watched the rest of the tournament,it's was not like today where these guys get the necessary medical treatment,i had to wait until i got back home and use my soft candle,safron,ratchet etc etc 

Coops,
               Things have changed so much in football since them days. Rudy Howel was a very speedy and skinny player for Caroni.

      I will not say so nah Sam!because when you look at the teams we were up against,what preparation we had,our technical staff etc etc all local to boot,i think for Mexico Sanchez scored about 4 in that game,just to play against those countries was worth it,that's the kind of mentality we had.What would you think about playing those same teams today,nothing has changed.

I spoke to Mike Grayson, Carter, Walkes, Sammy. They say altitude was one of the many issues they had to deal with. Those teams were better prepared than TT. Mexico had an axe to grind against we. We beat them in Haiti. We beat them in Santo Domingo, We tie them in the U-19 in Ottawa. So it was payback in Toluca. Sanchez and Rangel had played in the U-19 in Canada, so they were familiar with some of the TT guys. Them men say Bolivia, Brazil and Paraguy were too much. It was pros against amateurs. At least they scored 4 goals.

         Well don't talk about that altitude,all the other countries had their teams in Mexico days or weeks before to acliamatize,we got there may be a day or two before,even Hasely Crawford and them who was there for the athletics was dropping like flies,i think Hasely lost to Quantarina from Cuba in the 100 meters,but it was oxygen tanks after our athletes performed,so you see i'm not trying to make excuses you get it from other players like myself who were there,they thought was Steve,Archie etc they would be up against again so they took us Tuluca.

Yes, I also forget that they said that Mex thought Archie and Gally would be on the team. Mex fraid speedy forwards from the opposite end. They get burn with speed in Haiti, so Toluca was the equaliser. It just goes to show how the amateur rules was a big sham. Mex and all the SA teams were shamateurs. All those guys played for pro teams. They use the technical terms to disguise that they pay the players a pro-players salaried stipend. Our guys were the real amateurs.

Coops the guy that beat Crawfie in 100 was Silvio Leonard. He had step on a broken glass just before Montreal Olimpics. And that is history. Gold Crawfie!!!!!!

Cooper was also a trainer for a national under 16 team which was packed with talent such as Russell Latapy, Clint Marcelle, Colin Rocke, Ansley Weeks and Ross Russell and played some role in developing these players. He mentioned that he was and still is shocked that Collin Rocke was never called up by Trinidad and Tobago senior team and that the midfielder was a more complete player than Latapy and Marcelle. Coops said “You could have put him anywhere on the field and when it came to dribbling he had the tools as well.”  Coops further added that Rocke, Marcelle and Latapy use to terrorize defences and they where the three top midfielders in the country at that time.

Great read, Anyone that was involved with San Juan team- good with me.

coops, did you pick Rocke for the B team? I`m to young to know those days, if you didn`t any reasons??

      Colin was not in T&T around that time,he was out dealing with his college carear.That U16 tournament was the last of Colin and T&T football,he was never called or considered for our national teams after that,i don't know why.

Guys,i know i am a pain in the butt but for the time i'm on here while others have quit Coops still here fighting his battles,it's the same way i played the game.

You all may notice i don't disrespect or hate anybody regardless of what's said too or about me,is just that my responses hit home very hard,Coops will always be Coops with his controversial views.

I must say this subject has touched me very much and cannot thank Flex enough even though it was a surprise to me at first,i certainly want to show some appreciation to the posters who contributed to this topic and want all to know don't judge me by what you read on this website.

I had to be strong to stay on this website after getting beat up so many times :justkidding:but thanks to guys like Palos who told me to hold on,i've learned a lot from you guys because you are more up to date on everything than me,don't worry about me and JW/Camps,TTFF etc i'm not going to come on this website and criticize anybody,i don't know who reads what goes on here and while i may have had some bad experiences as a Coach with the Admin i think i had a reasonable good playing career,it was a time when you enjoyed playing Football.

Thanks guys love you all.

Seriously though while there are those who may disrespect your views there are others like myself who do respect your opinion as it one cultivated from your experience which harkens back to the heyday of TnT's football.  Just ignore the haters and remember debate is always healthy.

This was/is a real nice thread....bringing back memories of when I was a lil' boy....my God Mother (R.I.P.) used t take me to every sporting and cultural event possible and her two sons were excellent footballers, one of whom was a good friend of Gally and Russell Tesheira.....so seeing some of them names that played alongside with Coop's (Leon Carpette, Selwyn Murren, Francis Furlonge (was one of her favourite players) and of course Sammy and Ron La) names I was used to hearing as I used to be in the oval, the savanna and in King George V, watching Malvern, Maple, Police Defence Force, Falcons, (ent it had a side from Carenage, too?)...and hear them names call all d time....Burt Neptune....Football was rel sweet in dem times.....fast-forward to Coop's' involvement with that U-16 team.....a team that had galvanized our country for that epic CONCACAF tournament.....remembering what it was like to had our own little battles at QRC against practically every member of that squad....Memories, boy, Coop's.....Thank you.  Me eh know what your corrent relationship with or against the ttff is, Coop's but dize between you and dem and allyuh business.  You could be jacula bess fren and all but ah have to respect your contribution to we football.  Bless up, Coop's!!  :beermug: :beermug:

       It have nothing to lie about,i'll give anything for the good old days.Yes Carenage had a very good team,they had some good players that's where guys like Kelvin Jones,Hayden and Marlon Waterman,Anton Thomas,Angus Eve who also had a brother that was pretty good,it also had a player who i liked a lot called Dave Denoon,some real good players came out of that area.

Yeah man, Coops ... I was introduced to Tricia some years back. It must be rewarding to see that she's carrying on in the family business.  :beermug:

      I am very proud of her achievements in the game because she didn't have much help from me,it's rewarding to see what Football has done for her.
