Maybe a thread is needed telling DL why needs needs to have his own handpicked staff. (Sam ..Contro get on it)

There is a press conference on Monday when Dennis will be officially unveiled to the public. Dennis has said he had shortlisted 2 Englishmen, a Dutchman, Hutson Charles, Angus Eve and Stern John for positions of Assistant Coach and intended to interview them all after he was in TnT. He also had his own goalkeeper coach and match analyst he wanted to bring on board. Hopefully then we can be informed of whom he has chosen to full the positions rather than jumping to conclusions.

I'm at work bro, keep me posted. That's a great appointment I think. A world renowned, respected former defender who played at the highest level for club and country in the toughest league on the planet can only bode well during this campaign and the future!

That's his player resume. I'd much prefer to know what his coaching resume is.

None.

This potential appointment all over the English news, though, so there seems to be something to it.

He has no coaching resume but he has a UEFA A Licence like Lawrence. That coupled with his playing experience alongside Tony Adams and Martin Keown and playing against world class players week-in week-out for 19 years in the Premiership would surely give him a basic working knowledge of how defending works. I hear and respect what you say but I can't see anything wrong with this appointment on paper and really can't criticize it! His name and stature should help our defenders!

Lawrence officially unveiled as Head Coach.
TTFA Media.


Sol Campbell named as Assistant Coach

Dennis Lawrence was today officially unveiled by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association as the head coach of the Men’s National Senior Team.

Lawrence’s first assignment will be the two 2018 World Cup Qualifying matches in Port of Spain against Panama and Mexico on March 24th and 28th and he is expected to oversee a home-based training camp late next month following the end of the T&T Pro League season.

Lawrence announced that ex-England and Arsenal defender Sol Campbell will be his first assistant on the team and details on the rest of the backroom staff will be announced in due course.

TTFA President David John-Williams officially welcomed Lawrence on board, extending well wishes to him and vowing the FA’s full support towards him and the team.

More Details to Follow

The real measure of a man's character is what he would do if he knew he would never be found out.

Also interesting piece of news out of the press conference.

And there was an inkling of discord over the process today as technical committee chairman Dexter Skeene did not show up for the unveiling as was initially proposed by the TTFA over a week ago.

John-Williams confirmed that Skeene, his vice-chairman Alvin Henderson and Errol Lovell, a former national goalkeeper, all resigned last week, which represents exactly half of the board. He said no reason was given for their resignations and the football body is yet to replace them.

The govt allocation that the dictator was hiding and FIFA allocation .....

Money the dictator did not want to support Hart with, which could have made a big difference and we probably would be in a situation to qualify already...

Interesting that they NOW decide to resign while all the while staying silent during the hiring of Saintfiet.

So is either they DID in fact recommend Saintfiet, in which case, they should all be FIRED

OR

They had no input in the hiring of Saintfiet, and by staying silent, allowed themselves to be publicly ridiculed by the TTFA President when he said is the Technical Committee that hires coaches.

My feeling, something along those lines. They were presented with Saitnfiet as the guy to do the job so they went with that, then got hung out to dry when DJW say he was their recommendation. So after that they decide to actually do they homework then they get dey hand slapped twice more when the board pull dem up for overstepping dey bounds on affordability of the coach, then de board disregard dey pick and hire DL... rest is history.

Remember this is the same group that selected DJW's preference of SCF for head coach. Replacing these guys with yes men is not likely to have much effect as long as the board, which overruled the technical committee's choice, does its job effectively and don't allow themselves to be pushed around by DJW (or led around by the nose either).

Hmmm... What jack wants...?

... Jack used to get. :P

Yuh was saying...

Warner: TTFA boss should resign too.
By Stephon Nicholas & Jelani Beckles (Newsday).


Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has called on president of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) David John-Williams to follow Belgian Tom Saintfiet out the door.
...

They should fire him now. The guy has poor judgement, he doesn’t understand football...He believes football is of course like Nescafe - quick fix. He doesn’t know that in football there is no quick fix. There is instant coffee, there is instant chocolate, there is not instant in football.” Warner believes Saintfiet was asked to resign after losing three out of his first four matches with the team not gelling and squabbles with several senior players.

Is there anything the current TTFA boss could do to get football back on the right track? “Except to resign and to appoint a coach as Dennis Lawrence to guide the football for the next five years,” Warner replied.

Lawrence, who headed the winning goal against Bahrain 12 years ago to get T&T to the 2006 World Cup in Germany, has made a name for himself in England as an assistant coach to ex-Everton manager Roberto Martinez.
