Not foreign born but I lived a large sum of my childhood in the US. San Fernando was home in the beginning and will be the same in the end :beermug:

Thanks man :) Sadly my plans to live in Trinidad for 3 years fell through, but I'm not leaving the site or Trini football - this is the nation of the woman I love, and hopefully the children I bear, so I have a vested interest in the country to say the least! Tbh it's nice to see someone not cynical about my involvement - can definitely sympathise with the view, which is why it's nice to have someone call me out in a positive way :)

All 3 are excellent guys.

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

Tbh the quality coming out of this nation is absolutely amazing given the ineptitude of funding and lack of support. Lets not exaggerate here - if T&T got the level of professionalism and support that other nations got, they'd qualify for every tournament. Really it beggars belief that this nation isn't crushing their contemporaries - hell even America could fall with some love and dedication to the domestic game. They're the smallest nation ever to qualify, but Uruguay have won two world cups with double the population (3.2mil). Trinidad and Tobago has oil and gas money until 2025, if it was applied I'm sure we'd be much higher up.

You look at the quality these Isles have produced, and just wonder what could have been. How many would Jorsling have scored had he been picked up at 18 by a Pro club? Joevin Jones? You look at players like Kenwyne Jones - I wouldn't even say he had the best potential of strikers for his generation. T&T has a bunch of strikers of quality (What nation has such competition? Jorsling, Jones, Winchester, Plaza, Caesar, Glen, Joseph immeidately come to mind, I'm missing at least two.), and a bunch of quality elsewhere. It's not fulfilled, because how can it be when players are part-time at clubs that get kicked out of training because of crappy event X, or get their games shifted around, get paid infrequently, and otherwise disruptions to their career.

Right now Trinibagonian footballers can't realistically make a career of football on the islands - that's a joke. If they could, you'd see T&T be in the top 50 consistently, and players would be all over the world same as Nigeria and other countries a hundred times their size.
