Good write up.

I think Andre Toussaint is a very good passer of the ball, maybe under the strikers he can ad value to the team. He also have so deaf touches.

In the last Gold Cup he was our best player. I do think he is being misused as a striker. His role should be more like Latapy's. He can make a contribution. I hope they keep him in the training squad where he can be an understudy to Latas.

I saw Toussaint when he was younger at the COE. He came on as a sub and teamed up with Dwarika and Eve or Wise someone ah them. When Toussaint collect the ball W-Connection had to scramble, while they were relaxed all the time Dwarika and the other one playing. The fella was amazing to watch, he was flying. In the National set up he was never catered to, so he had to do what he can. If a system of play is designed for him he will produce, but we cannot to this cause we do not have the mids with the quality to assist in making such a system of play effective.

 In my opinion Andre Toussaint has always been a good player and a player that could help the team. However I think he needs to work harder at defending and tracking back. His touch is sublime, he has quick feet,  great passer, good vision and can link up with other players well. Another issue is his position, if he can play midfield and put in the work it would help his value. Although playing further up the pitch may suit him with his club team I feel he better off as a midfielder(if only he would run more!)

Toussaint: India won't be pushovers.

Toussaint: India won't be pushovers.
T&T Express Reports.


Trinidad and Tobago striker Andre Toussaint says the national team will be aiming to produce a tidy as possible performance in Sunday's friendly international against India at the Hasely Crawford Stadium from 5 p.m.

Toussaint is one of the senior members in Otto Pfister's T&T squad, which has been in training for the past few weeks.

Toussaint was a member of the last national team to participate in a CONCACAF Gold Cup back in 2007 and was part of the team during the 2010 World Cup Qualifiers.

One of his noted moments included a neat combination with Dwight Yorke in the build-up to Keon Daniel's brilliant strike in 1-1 draw with Guatemala at the Hasely Crawford Stadium.

"At this present time we are working to get things right for the game against India. We haven't played a game since the coach arrived here so it's an occasion everyone is looking forward to," Toussaint told Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) media officer Shaun Fuentes yesterday.

"We have to be careful also because we haven't played before with this current team so we may not be at our sharpest in terms of the chemistry, but we will definitely be aiming to put on the best performance possible. And India may be better and more popular in cricket but I'm sure they will be worked up for the match and will be capable of doing well.

"The coach has been paying close attention to the local players because he wants to bring us up to a certain level," added the former US-based Charleston Battery and W Connection striker.

"I am not certain of being in the team and I know I have to work hard and prove myself because the striking department is a tough one. We have some good players in that position so I can only do my part by working hard and let the coach do his job with the final selection."

Toussaint is contracted to Joe Public but will not run out for them in the upcoming T&T Pro League season following the club's withdrawal last week.

"It's a bit of a blow but I will be looking to see what is the best possible option for me leading up to the start of the League," he added.

The Eastern Lions have retained national players Hayden Tino, Andre Toussaint, goalkeeper Marvin Phillip and Carlyle Mitchell, who will go to strengthen their National Super League team.

Meanwhile, Pfister conducted a 90-minute session at the Mannie Ramjohn Stadium in Marabella on Monday morning and welcomed back ex-Holland-based striker Darryl Roberts to the squad after the player had been on trial in the USA with Portland Timbers.

The Indian team will arrive in Port of Spain on Wednesday evening.

Pfister's next session will be on Thursday at the Hasely Crawford Stadium and the team will go into camp at the Crowne Plaza the same day.

I feel them Indian players should do the “screw the light bulb” dance to celebrate whenever they score on we!

What do you guys think?!

If only Camps and dem knew which day we playing we could at least confirm the day of this match so that at least two ah we could plan to attend the game so we could try to match the support that the visiting team going to get!!  :-\

Right now we might as well say advantage India cause at least them already know the date they playing us!!  ;)

‘Legend’ Andre Toussaint returns to W Connection

‘Legend’ Andre Toussaint returns to W Connection
ttproleague.com


Andre Toussaint has returned to W Connection and the former Trinidad and Tobago international is part of a cache of talented signings by head coach Stuart Charles Fevrier for the 2015/2016 TT Pro League season.

The 34-year-old crafty attacking midfielder, with an impeccable first touch, had represented his home town club Point Fortin Civic in the last two seasons following stints at the now defunct T&TEC FC and Morvant Caledonia United but opted to return to his ex-employers this season. 

Toussaint, who has won Pro League championship medals with W Connection and Joe Public, represented the “Savonetta Boys” between 2004 and 2009, only interrupted by a brief stint at United Soccer Leagues (USL) side Charleston Battery in 2007.

“We (W Connection) think he (Toussaint) has unfinished business at our club,” expressed W Connection assistant coach Earl "Ball Hog" Jean.

Jean, a former teammate of Toussaint at Connection, added, “He is a legend at the club. He has a lot of quality and the right temperament on the field. We believe it is great having him back. We want an experienced player such as Toussaint for our younger players to feed off. Our current players are happy they now have someone who can change the game; a player to give them the edge. That’s a lot of confidence.”

Connection have also acquired the services of Trinidad and Tobago Under-23 duo Dwight Quintero, 21, and Kevon Goddard, 19, who joined the “Savonetta Boys” from Couva rivals Central FC.

Commenting on the acquisition of forward Quintero, Jean, a former St. Lucia and Connection striker, said, “We have always liked Quintero. I think he has a bright future once he listens and accepts what we have to teach him at Connection. He still has to grow in confidence but he is a player that can do well for Trinidad (and Tobago) in the near future.”

Other new Connection signings include 19-year-olds Jamal Charles, a Grenada international forward, and Briel Thomas, a midfielder out of Dominica; along with 20-year-olds Jhonathan Gherherdt, a Brazilian forward, and Trinidadian midfielder Kion Joseph, who made the move from North East Stars. While 16-year-old midfielder Keston Julien has been promoted from the Connection youth system.

Fevrier’s squad, inclusive of the newcomers, stands a very youthful outfit, six of which are 18-year-olds and 22 from 27 players within the 23-and-under age group. The longstanding W Connection coach is also evaluating a couple more teenagers who are on trial with the Couva based club.

“The players all have a great opportunity here at Connection,” continued Jean, who in his 19 years of playing professional football, had represented clubs in Portugal, England, Scotland, China and T&T. “Once they can take in what is taught here [at Connection], they can move on to much bigger lives in football. I have played all over and worked under many coaches and I can say that Stuart is the best tactical coach that I have ever played and worked under. He is of international quality.”

The new "Savonetta Boys” signings joined the likes of goalkeepers Julani Archibald, a 21-year-old St. Kitts/Nevis international, Terrence Lewis, 23, and goalkeeper coach/player Aquelius Sylvester, 33; defenders Kurt Frederick, a 24-year-old St. Lucia international, Gerard Williams, a 27-year-old St. Kitts/Nevis international, Maurice Ford, 19, Alvin Jones, 21, Shannon Gomez, 18, Christian Viveros, a 25-year-old Colombian, and Triston Hodge, 20; midfielders Jomal Williams, 21, Aikim Andrews, 19, Stiven Lopez Concha, a 23-year-old Colombia midfielder, Jabari Mitchell, 18, Neil Benjamin Jr., 21, and Anfernee Frederick, a 19-year-old Dominica international; and forwards Dimitrie Apai, a 21-year-old Suriname international, Shahdon Winchester, 23, and Shirvone St Prix, a 20-year-old St. Lucia international.

Yuh damn right he has a sweet first touch. That is the skill one needs to handle playing against say Central Americans like Mexican teams where they rush you in a high-traffic midfield.

One of de best midfielders who never took it or got a good break.

Toussaint is a real technical player.

He is 34, maybe he could still give we a year or two?

Nice thought .... but Big Mag threw cold water on that the other day when he gave the impression that he looked unfit at the time.

I wish he had a year or two as handling balls in traffic would be a breeze for him. He kinda smally though and rough central smerican opposition used to throw him down. Possibly the answer to that would be to push him up by the box and collect Nuff free kicks or penalties. BraveHart take note.
