Are those fellas using water mellons as footballs in Manny Ramjohn Stadium?
Is that the type of football now being played there to match the state of the pitch?

Or maybe they are now growing water mellons on the football pitch!  :devil:

Apparently, it's a good spot to find decent mushrooms.

This is what we're up against. OK, so the stadium can't be used, but maintain the damn pitch for Gods sake. Now a whole new set of turf will need to be relaid after you treat the soil underneath. Next thing: there'll be no budget, so we'll be without the stadium for another season.

This is extremely poor management and heads should roll. Of course, the first head should be the Minister of Sport. Disgusting mismanagement of taxpayers resources.

The thing is, if the ministry of sport or who ever is responsible for maintaining the stadium is not interested then why not give the stadiums to league teams then or they just prefer to see it waste down to nothing?

I know 2 foreign investors who wants to get into the T&T league but not getting the Gov. support for a field, this is a perfect opportunity.

In other news, I heard Steve David wants to bring out a league team for the new season.

The Stadium is not even fully paid for I can tell you.  T&T  this is our land.   Imagine millions expended and no ball.

Even better, give it to two teams a la Bayern Munich. State owned facilities, ANYWHERE in the world tend to be run poorly. Private enterprise comes with a key aim: to make money. That means that facilities are usually better maintained and utilised. Even Wembley Stadium is owned by the F.A. through govt support.

I'd suggest giving Manny, Ato and Larry to the TTFA (once they've proved themselves) and let them make some cash for our football.

They say Tarouba has been stripped bare of fittings. Doors, bathroom fittings etc.

Shocking. You know, this stuff belongs to us. Those people who fail to look after our stuff should be made to pay. They have a duty of care, a responsibility to the citizens. This is nothing short of criminal negligence.

I still hoping it's pictures from somewhere else. However, it's not difficult to imagine any one of our state run stadia looking like this except for HC or LG.

While I agree that the national community should be made aware of this, what will come of it? There's no accountability in this country. Nobody will even be redeployed or warned about it.

What is Anil doing. While they building the velodrome and swimming pool next to Ato, how could they neglect this stadium. Did they not play intercol finals in this stadium last year. You mean to say they can't pay some guys with lawmower to give the ground a haircut. Hire some goat to eat the grass. Nah that is a photo shop!!! I refuse to believe that!

If they feel they could just cut that grass and maintain from there they mad


All the fields should be relaid.. but because Pro League around the corner they will have to focus solely on Manny because Ato not in bad shape at all..saw it the other day and it looked quite decent... HCS not bad either

Have not seen Larry Gomes in a while...hopefully out there not like a scene in Jumanji like Manny


DISGUSTING from Ministry of Sport..... get to work on this field immediately shithongs

From what I recall, to refurbish the track and do safety repairs to the stands they took Larry and Mannie offline. I guess (in their infinite wisdom) that the grass don't need looking after as no one is playing on it.

I hear Larry is in good shape. Dwight Yorke is also unsafe for spectators, though the field is in perfect condition (Tobago really looking after their fields). Even Hasely is an eyesore, with the parking lot like a rally cross circuit.

Really what is needed is a national stadium and savannah department, to identify priority maintenance, and basically maintain the sporting assets......wait a minute...isn't that what SPORTT is supposed to do??

Did you say call the media house.

Come on, this is T&T, they only concern about writing about Jack and Kamla everything else could wait.

And if Jack runs for PM and wins, all football in T&T will be dead. So its important the TTFA get some foundation to build on quick, maybe work out some deal with the MOS to get these stadiums.

If you check the T&T dailies, all of them, same story different writers.

No one brings anything different.

Pro League top two face tough tasks

Friday, February 1 2013

THE DIGICEL Pro League will return to the Marvin Lee Stadium, Macoya, for the first time this season, as Round Two Match Day Five action takes place today and tomorrow.

Matches for the past few weeks have been confined to the Ato Boldon Stadium in Couva, due to the unavailability of the other Government-owned stadia in Trinidad — Hasely Crawford Stadium in Mucurapo (Carnival shows), Larry Gomes Stadium in Arima and Manny Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella (refurbishment).

But, with the Couva venue due to host Wednesday’s friendly football international between Trinidad and Tobago and Peru, the League got the okay to stage this weekend’s games at the privately-owned Macoya facility.

Hunt criticises UNC-built stadia

Government plans to spend some $102 million to refurbish the four stadia which were built under the UNC government for the 2001 Youth World Cup, Sport Minister Gary Hunt stated yesterday.

The stadia were built through the instrumentality of FIFA vice president and Concacaf boss Jack Warner and there was a controversy over the tendering procedures.

"It speaks to the quality of construction," Hunt said, as he noted that the 30-year-old Hasely Crawford Stadium, which was close to the sea, never had a need for that kind of upgrade.

Giving details of the breakdown in cost, Hunt said Government would spend $23.5 million on the Dwight Yorke Stadium in Tobago, $27.5 million on the Larry Gomes in Arima, $22 million on the Ato Boldon in Couva and $29 million on the Manny Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella. He said the Government proposed to put down two artificial fields on the two stadia - Manny Ramjohn and Larry Gomes- which were in high use.

Ed: Mind you, PNM don't have a much better record judging by Tarouba!
