Ian Clauzel interview
« on: October 26, 2019, 11:46:55 AM »
Fellas,

Ian Clauzel has agreed to do an interview with me.

I think the former Dread Dribbler of Mucurapo has a story to tell and I am looking forward to the interview.

I will be honest and tell you that I was a youngster in the late 70s and never saw him play. But even people who did not follow football in those days knew the name Clauzel.

If you have any memories of him or questions for him please say. I will do my best to put forward your questions.

Peace,
VB

Great, looking forward to this.

I know there has been some interviews from local Newspapers in the past. I know you'll be sure to review them.

I would like to hear a little about his playing with Eric White

Thanks

Actually, only a little info on the net.

I think someone did a full page back in the late 90s but unfortunately it's not on the net.

Interesting interview though. I had no idea that he played in the Concacaf youth tournament for TT and that the Strike Squad asked him to train.

Should be available in a week.

I was saying this to Earl Carter. We do not have a proper Hall of Fame or Archives system in TT. If it wasn't for this site and EMan we would not even have the TT Football History site.

vb, this was superb. Like I said to you before, I missed out on this guy and the rest that followed. I left TT in Jan 77. I used to hearabout them from word of mouth or read a  old Guardian or  Express whenever I get one. Too bad they did not create an impact on the senior level. That is TT football. Lot's of talented guys were left frustrated after the highs of intercol football. Reality bites.

Thank you, vb!

He quickly dispels the rumour that the Cosmos gave him a trial. “… it was a newspaper gimmick.” However, he did make an appearance on Sesame Street – the popular children’s TV program. “They came to the school and asked me if I was a professional footballer. I told them no.” They asked him to …”juggle a ball and people were counting in Spanish from one to ten. I did it in the school hall. I saw it on television.”

This alone makes up for you getting scooped on Angus Eve. :devil:

Ah wonder if we could locate that on YouTube?

Believe me, the moment he told me that, I ran to Youtube and began searching. I could not find it. I wouldn't be surprsied that back in the 80s I may have seen it and not even realized that It was IC I was watching.

Maybe TM can help us out. ;-)

Clazuel was not selected for training with the NYT. The TTFA had to force the coaches to accept him. TT then lost more matches than they won at the Concacaf Champs and IC was voted most talented player in the tournament.

Has any TT player ever won such an award at Sr. or Jr. level?

I know we have a few who have made the Concacaf All Stars Team but most outstanding player?

Surely there's got to be someone who saw Clauzel on Sesame Street.

“Has any TT player ever won such an award at Sr. or Jr. level”.

Yep. Deleon won it at the 1969 Concacaf tournament in Costa Rica. Gally Cummings won it in 1973 tournament in Haiti.
Deleon winning the MVP was an interesting one. It was a totally chaotic tournament for TT. VB, you should interview Gally, Deleon, Bert Grell, Leo Brewster, Buggy Haynes, and others on that team about the bakanal that took place in the TT camp. I think TT won one game at the expense of JA. We came 2nd to last in this tourney, and Deleon won the MVP. Just imagine that. It is rear that the MVP of a competition come from a 2nd to last placed team, unless that player scored the most goals in the tournament. I don’t think Dilly scored the most goal. So he had to really impress them Central Americans for him to get that award.

Gally won it on a superb and great performance in Haiti. Unlike 1969 where there was no video, the 1973 tourney in Haiti was filmed. TTT showed two or 3 games. Gally’s leadership and a bullet goal against Mexico, sealed the deal for him. Steve David got the most goals award.

Also Sammy Llewelyn had tied for the most goals at the 1974 CAC games. He is a next guy you should interview.
