Coops,the highest form of admiration & love anybody could show someone is to follow
in their footsteps.I am sure that's the feeling you get from her accomplishments.
Congrats to your daughter and 'Well Done' to you on your persuits.God bless breds.

     Sam u just like to talk yes,my career in the US involved many years of Football as a matter of fact that's all i did,at one time i was the assistant Coach at Davis and Elkins College,i worked for a company called Soccer Academy (English Coaches)for about fifteen of those years,my last gig out there was Technical director for a club called Norfolk Utd which had just over two thousand kids,when i started with them they only had a boys program,i had the experience of working with Brazillian,Argentinian,Vietman,American etc etc Coaches,they all liked me because i brought something different to the table,what made Summer Camps interesting for the kids was the variety of national 
  Coaches that did these Camps.

I never considered myself a foreign Coach i still maintain my accent and everything,when TT qualified for Germany i never signed so much autographs in my life every kid wanted one,i came to realize out there once u maintain your identity u get more respect.

I hate foreign Coaches!! tell that to somebody else not me,i have all the USSF and NSCAA certificates plus membership,u can dis respect me all u want i like to listen to guys like u.

I am not interested in what qualification you have, this is not my point.

And I am sure if you were to work wit the TTFA again you would do things differently.

De bottom line, with all that qualification you have I am sure your stock went up compare to when you live in T&T over 20 years ago.

Hart also kept his accent and is very close to his roots.

So stop hating on de foreign coach and you yourself is ONE and now you return home when you have nothing more going for you in de USA and all of a sudden you is Trini now !!!!!!!!

I remain close to my roots too, but I am base foreign. De you think de locals will respect him ?

Before Allyuh get to uptight...how I read it..
Coops defence of the abuse and misuse of local coaches, especially there lack of payment, while new coaches from outside the country, not necessarily foreigners, are paid on time, does not constitue to he hating local foreign coaches...Coops wrong, cause Simoes, and Holger and possibly Maturana worked extended time without pay..
Sam point seems to me, a local coach cannot in anyway, build the same experience, as a coach living and working, in a foreign country, where more interest and due to it's size, other factors, demographics..etc etc more money is invested in sports development. As even described by Coops..
So imo,you're both correct, but Sam is wrong in thinking Coops dislike  foreign coaches , even if I think they are over paid.... :devil:
Last one is mine, doh wha get nobody in trouble...oh how, he say, and this one was backin
 La la la.  ;D

Sam right for pointing out the hypocrisy of those who criticize local coaches but bending over backwards to accomodate foreign coaches.  Sam wrong for assuming that this is Coop's stance.  Coop's stood up for local coaches getting a fair shake.  Sam also wrong for bringing the man daughter into this... Tricia Cooper is just as much Trini as Stephen Hart and Coop's himself.  Ex-pats don't lose their 'local' status just because they've plied their trade abroad.  Just the sheer fact that people open to bringing their expertise and talents back to TnT. 

Coop's doh need me to vouch for him, but he and I have been talking and dealing with each other offline for nearly six years now.  It was a huge surprise to me when he decided to move back home because of all the things he was doing in the Norfolk area and all of the opportunities he had going for him.  Paraphrasing the famous quote from Mark Chapter 6: "A prophet is [never honored]... in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house."

To suggest that Coop's suddenly discover that he's Trini or that he run home because he didn't have any other opportunities abroad, is not only wrong, it is downright rude and disrespectful.  The sad irony is that Sam here tearing down a man in a thread that Flex created to honor him.

Sam, Breds I think you gone overboard here. I know for a fact Coops has NO dislike for foreign coaches. Coops use to coach in the Tide water area of VA Beach. Lots of military people in the area.  The parents do overseas military duty frequently. Very transient life for the kids. Coops organization would find teams for these kids, in addition to coaching many of them. And as a former military man was only to glad too accomodate these military parents.

I agree with him that locals are disrespected and are not afforded the same resources like the foreign coaches. I also agree with you that the local coaches need to improve. But the last 25 years with Jack at helm, even those who went abroad refused to fall in line with the bull of the last Admin. They simply did their own things without fanfare. I spoke of my alma mater school mate Mike Grayson. Another one was Haydon Martin, former Fatima, who coached Saints for a while. He used to go Germany in the summers but decided he would stick with the college football and not deal with TTFF at the time.

Sam there is an important reason why Coops is back home. I don't think is my business to tell you. Maybe you and Coops can have a civilize conversation on that.

Coops, sorry if yuh take it de wrong way.

I just fed up with man here defending de local coaches and my point is, if they

1. Dont respect themselves no one will respect them.

2. They do not want to take their coaching to the next level but want the same treatment and pay like the more qualified one. If they get certified, they need exposure and this is why it is important for Charles, Hart and King to make the best of the opportunity they currently have.

I always feel you like to pick up for local coaches too much and in a sense yuh right because we have to look out for ours but they to have to be more.

And sorry, if you feel I disrespect yuh daughter, I feel to myself I did not, but sorry if you take it that way.

I would like to extend my deepest condolence to Kenwyn Cooper's family.

Coops pass away this morning.

RIP brother.
