W Connection trio off to Vietnam.

W Connection trio off to Vietnam.
W Connection Press Release.


DIRECTV W Connection trio Daneil Cyrus, Jerrel Britto and Juma Jamal Clarence will depart Piarco International Airport this evening bound for Vietnam where they will join former teammate Hughtun Hector who is entering his third season playing in the Vietnam V-League.

The 29 year-old midfielder has created quite an impression in Vietnam spending two seasons at Song Lam Nghe An who finished fourth in the 12 team table last season that it opened up doors for other T&T players.

Hector recently joined top place club Hanoi TT for the 2014 season and will represent them in the upcoming AFC Cup. His performance has turned the eyes of Vietnam scouts across the Atlantic and opened up the market for other local players.

Twenty-two year old central defender Daneil Cyrus will join Hector at Hanoi TT whilst strikers Jerrel Britto and Juma Jamal Clarance will head to Song Lam Nghe An for a 10-day trial where they are more than likely to secure contracts.

Questions:

1. Does Cyrus have a contract or is he going on trial?

2. If Hector leave Song Lam Nghe An because de club was having financial difficulties, then why Britto and Clarence going dey? Has de club's financial situation changed?

Possibly easier on the pocket to pay 1 or 2 rookies, than hold on to a bonafide sought after star.

In regards to question 1.

He has a contract offer. Still has to do his medical and fitness test before being confirmed.

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

     It seems to me like Connection have no problem with getting contracts for their players,it does not matter what time of the season or year they still doing well,Williams prove he was on the right track when he was criticize for sending players to Vietnam,other clubs think it's better to hold players to win Trophys/money but is this better for the player or the club? I think the policy that William's has is a win win situation for both club and player because he seeks the interest of players.

For real. He could have at least taken another crack at the MLS.

He needs to earn money in his career and the MLS 1) doesn't pay that well and 2) is inordinately hard to get into given its quality

The MLS pays much more the the PL and others from TT less talented have gotten in.
The GC was a great showpiece for TT players. Cyrus was one of the discoveries of that tournament.

WC may be selling players regularly and I applaud them for developing new young talent. But when you sell like that, you end up like those third div. clubs in England, grooming players for bigger clubs and spinning your wheels. This is one of the reasons we are a non factor in the Con. Club Championships.

       What you are saying there makes a bit of sense but what i will say to you is lets look at the history of T&T Football,our players have always been sold why we always have problems for our players when we need them,with the exception of one or maybe two occasions our clubs have ever done well in Con. Club Championships.

      These guys are full time professionals and at the end of the day they need something to show for it,how long their career last is anyones guess,the guys in the Army/Police are set when their playing days are over but what about the rest,the Football world is not an easy one and unless you have a Godfather like what Mr Williams is trying to do Crapaud smoke your pipe.

      Check what going on,these guys resorting to Minor League Footbal because they frustrated playing Football here,they want more of a challenge to better themselves.

Vietnam is real problems for our players:
Worst than MLS in terms of pay, from what I understand Average 40G's US
Footballers though getting pay not really in a professional set up. Plus you losing
then you not sure to get pay.
Corrupt league with games sold out often
Chances of getting call up for TT limited.
Club make you sign wavers. Very expensive flights, 24 hrs flying, major jet lag

Tiresais and Coops you are quite correct. I simply indicated a flip side of the coin.

The truth is our crowd support is a joke.
No crowd = limited revenue = limited advertisers coming forth.

Some of thes "joke" countries have ten to thirty thousand coming to games. The standard may not be great but the crowds support their football.
 I was in INdonesia wathcing local footballon TV and there had to be minimum then thousand at the stadium. Standard of football would not have come close to WC or SJC in the old days but they have their pros and support. Worse yet Man U and Liverpool going there every year.

We need to start looking at Africa as well. South Africa, Egypt, Tunisia, Ivory Coast and DRC have tremendous leagues. The quality, organisation and pay are lightyears ahead of TnT's PL and the MLS.

That's not much of an issue. Even in the midst of the arab spring these leagues were still functioning.

Yea foreign footballers tend to get paid higher wages relative to the population, thus being inserted into the Úlites who often avoid the worst of instability as they can afford and have access to private security, nicer neighbourhoods (where politicians live and thus have adequate policing/army support), and if the crap hits the fan, an escape route.

The DRC's league is crazy popular, they get crowds European Leagues would be happy to have

... my contention is that these are not necessarily optimal situations for our players to enter. Each of the countries mentioned has a distinct political reality, and although many of the foreign ballers in those nations experience a measure of insulation, they are not immune from the broader context.

Also to be considered is that some of the foreign ballers in those nations come from countries where adapting to the circumstances can be bridged by cultural, religious, linguistic and other affinities. I don't want to paint too fine a brush here because clubs like TP Mazembe bring plenty to the table. However, we have players that have had some players experience difficulty adjusting in Europe and even in places where there is little likelihood of unrest. That can't be discounted. At the end of the day, it comes down to each player's resolve and personality, but balling in Tunisia is not for everyone.

Everyday there are geopolitical events impacting sportsmen and women globally. Some fester. Others are tamped down by influential personalities. In nations where strife sizzles below the surface and can be kindled by ethnicity and other factors, nothing should be taken for granted. Everybody ain't Bob Bradley.

Cyrus thought it was a loan but it when he reached it was only a trial.
