Coop's you are looking in the right direction, because right now the distraction is Steven Hart. You are the only man besides Amwood who understands where our focus should be directed. The President seems to be the Technical Director at the moment..he is the man with the vision for the future of football in Trinidad and Tobago.

Hi Guys, I'm new to the forum although i have been following for awhile. i  have applied to become TD within the TTFA. I was just wondering what the general feeling would be if someone from Europe got the position?
Thanks in advance

Pick the best man for the job, no matter where he is from.

No favors, because he from Europe though.

He must earn his pick like everyone else.

But, no problem where he is from.

Beenhaker, who took us to de world cup is from Europe.

And its not TTFF, its TTFA (now), if yuh applying for a job, at least know de name of de company yuh applying for nah.

That alone says a lot.

Welcome to the forum :) Don't mind Sam, he loves to meet new people and get on :p.

I'm a Brit (with no blood relation to Trini yet), so I don't mind, as long as you're relatively cheap :p (so the limited money isn't filtered from other programmes). As long as you're aware of the financial situation at teh TTFA and willing/able to be flexible there.

I am also from the UK. The main reason i have applied for the role is to help sustain and grow football in the area, giving kids from grass roots the opportunity to play football and be coached to a high standard in turn providing the stars of tomorrow.

Welcome! So we have a lot of Trinis all over the place and on this board who can do those things as well, so what else will you bring to the table other than being from Europe? How familiar are you with the "Liming under a coconut tree culture" or "Carnival Mentality of the people", how about "Basic Punctuality...any time is Trini time"? What personal and professional sacrifices are you willing to make for the greater good of football in T&T? Are you personally financially sound to afford going without a pay check for months at a time? Were you aware that you would be interviewed on this forum?  :yellowcard:
All the best, I actually have a candidate that I've endorsed for the position because he passed all the above criteria ;D

Personal sacrifices are being away from home from my kids also my business interests, as for the job itself i have a number of syllabuses  that i have  produced  for coaches and players from grass roots to full time professionals that one of which is being used by a professional side in England.
With everything in life you only get out what you put in, so you always have to strive to become better day by day.

GB, one of your first tests will be to spot the Trini sense of humour as demonstrated by CK1! Meanwhile, I find that our British sense of humour tends to fail miserably here. But, in most times, Trinis are a lot more friendly and welcoming than Brits so you'll soon get the hang of things! Which UK clubs have you worked with?

Nice. I hear SGP is puckka - a big improvement on Lilleshall and Bisham. Haven't been there, as I've been out here since before it opened. Huddersfield supposed to have some decent facilities too?

Good news for you!! But T&T could really do with some new blood to bring organisation and positive change.
I hope you are considered for the TTFA position and that you will keep your options open.

An outsider wouldn't get the job, they already know who they want but advertise it for courtesy.

Do you think they will bring in someone to expose all the deficiencies.

Like another poster said the best man for the job must be chosen regardless where he is from. Therefore you being from Europe should not be an obstacle.

No favors or special attention because he is from Europe!

He must earn his pick like everyone else.

I don't care who gets the job as long as we get the team going again. I have gotten to point of seriously supporting USMNT. I am following them to twitter, watching the MLS, getting excited about their transfer possibilities  :'( This is only happening because I feel like we don't have a team. Where are our friendlies. Why aren't we trying to improve our ranking to deal with the work permit situation. Our guys aren't getting national team minutes. Even if we have to play Haiti, can we please just play someone.

So my answer is, don't care who does it, just get stuff done.

Ah really dunno nah. Question to anyone TTFA inner circle. What is the current status of our senior football team at the moment? We have Caribbean Nations Cup qualifiers in October, so are we not going to play friendlies before then?
