Edgar Vidale, Alvin Corneal and Sedley Joseph are forever trying to sabotage T&T football.  Is dem who campaign to have Rene Simoes ousted from his position.  They fight tooth and nail against Porterfield appointment.  And de ting is....Alvin did sabotage he own brother in law...de same Edgar Vidale when Vidale was coach.

These guys are something else.  

I wonder if they truly believe if a local coach was in charge if we would have been in the world cup at this point?  They have all had their opportunities and what have they achieved?  Not a blasted thing.

The most ironic, hypocritical and sickening thing is that they so against players not born in T&T playing for the team in Germany primarily because they didn't have anything to do with getting us there.

YET

They want a local coach in Germany who would have done absolutlely NOTHING to get us to Germany in the first place.

These guys are a set of haters and as long as they continue to have influence in local football, our football will remain mired in mediocrity.  I only hope and pray Anton Corneal is not cut of the same cloth as his Father and Uncle.

I agree all the way palos but remember the lime doh fall far from the tree,all these ex football greats believe life began and has to end with them,which happens to be all about self interest and not about developing our football so it could be marketed world wide.

Most Trinidad coaches is rank shithound. We won't get anywhere if we don't accept that. We need better coaches FULL STOP. Men like Vidale and Gally  are some of the most senior coaches in this country and dem an all is still shithound. What have they done in local or international football. What is their record  ? Does Vidale even have job right now ? Steups.

These fellas just don't want any foreigners in charge of the team,  irrespective of capability.

I didn't hear the interview but if this man was talking we playing a dutch brand what does that even mean. Does it mean that we are not playing a Trini brand ? Furthermore, if this is the case, let Vidal tell the SW faithful just what the Trini brand is. How different is the way we played this campaign to other times. Same short pass, same beat, better organised defense, more fight in the midfield. All this with a "lesser" squad as compared to years gone by.  Steups. If that brand is Dutch, I don't want any Vidale version of a Trini one.

Gally and Vidale cannot be compared together. Gally took agroup of amateurs within a point of qualifying for a WC. It is the international experience that the present team has both at coach and player slevel is that have us in germany today.

Vidale is a dunce and an idiot. He like a bad cold that would not leave.As for Umbala like all jokers who have a microphone believe that they are journalists. The situation is worst where sports is concerned all and sundry feel that they can comment about sports.

I have a couple questions to ask Mr. Vidale...the first being what has he as a coach accomplished on an international level. The second, how many players has he developed who have played or are playing in the EPL, MLS, Serie A, La Liga or even the Bundesliga.
It's so typical of these fellas to see fault in everyone but themselves. he is one of the many reasons why TnT football stagnant.

Please dont compare Gally to Vidale. Chalk and cheese.

Anton going to Germany and if one reads Anton interview, one gets the impression that he is the coach.
Why is it that we keep interviewing has been who did not take us anywhere . Football dinasaurs with old ideas.

Even in the local leaque the two top clubs have foreign coaches. What does that say.

Vidale to receive Chaconia Silver Medal on Monday

Vidale to receive Chaconia Silver Medal on Monday
By Walter Alibey (T&T Guardian)


Former national football coach and technical director Edgar Vidale will be awarded the Chaconia Silver medal on Monday by President Paula Mae Weekes, at 5 pm at President's House in St Ann's, Port-of-Spain.

He was nominated by the Veterans Football Foundation of T&T (VFFOTT). The award should have taken place in 2021 but the COVID-19 pandemic ruled it out.

The Chaconia Medal is given to people (citizens and non-citizens) who have performed long and meritorious service to the country tending to promote the national welfare or strengthen the community spirit.

Vidale, the brother-in-law of former national footballer and coach Alvin Corneal, has been a household name in T&T, as a former national footballer, coach, cricketer and football administrator.

The height of his career was coaching the now-familiar national football team of 1973 in the FIFA World Cup qualifier against Haiti in Port-au-Prince where the team scored five legitimate goals but they were disallowed. T&T lost 1-2 to the home team.

Vidale on Sunday still remembered that controversial match following which the officials, referee, Jos Roberto Henrquez of El Salvador and Canadian linesman James Higuet were subsequently both banned for life by the sport's world governing body, FIFA.

Now 88, Vidale said he felt very happy and honoured to be receiving such an award.

"I am not surprised that I am getting the award but the one I am getting is what I am surprised about. It is a pretty distinguished award. It shows that my colleagues and countrymen appreciate what I have done over the years," Vidale said.

Apart from coaching arguably one of the country's most talented football teams in a qualifying tournament, Vidale was also president of the Southern Football Association, vice president of the T&T Football Association's Technical Committee, several other titles.

Edgar was the coach of the TT 1974 CAC games football team that won the silver medal. They lost to Cuba on pks. Should have won gold to be honest. They beat Mexico 2-1 in the semis. Peter Mitchell scored the winner. That was the highlight of his football career. Unfortunately.

National award recipient Vidale backs local football coaches

National award recipient Vidale backs local football coaches
By Stephon Nicholas (T&T Newsday)


FORMER Trinidad and Tobago football coach and technical director Edgar Vidale believes local coaches need to be supported to allow this country's football to reflect the colour and creativity of its people.

Vidale, 88, was awarded the Chaconia Medal Silver on Monday for his contributions to sport and community service.

The Chaconia Medal is given to people (citizens and non-citizens) who have performed long and meritorious service to the country tending to promote the national welfare or strengthen the community spirit.

He was nominated by the Veterans Football Foundation of T&T (VFFOTT).

Vidale was also president of the Southern Football Association and vice-president of the T&T Football Association's technical committee.

Vidale told Newsday on Friday, "I feel very proud. It's a distinguished award. I also think it's a reward to me because of the fact that so many people believe I have helped them. It's a gift to want to serve people and they appreciate it as they do."

Asked what was the highlight of his football career, Vidale recalled T&T's agonising second-place finish in the 1973 Concacaf Championship. T&T amassed six points in the campaign while Haiti, boosted by the the infamous 2-1 victory over T&T in Port-au-Prince, finished with right points.

The controversial loss saw Haiti win the tournament and qualify for the World Cup in West Germany. Salvadoran referee Jose Roberto Henriquez was later banned for life by FIFA.

"The competition was part of my highlight in serving the country, even though everybody should know it was sort of a notorious competition," he recalled. " We scored five goals (against Haiti) all legitimate. Unfortunately, we didn't have the technology as we do now or else the goals would have stood."

Vidale said he maintains the belief that a local coach should be in charge of T&T football.

"I am one of those who thinks we could produce our own coach in Trinidad. Our footballers, like any part of our culture steelband, calypso comes from our life. Football should have the same approach.

"The same way people recognise Brazil, Spain, England (brand of football)...People want to see (local football). I don't think a foreign coach could see that."

Vidale noted he was also a good cricketer as well.

"Most people don't know I played at a high level in cricket too. I captained the South team, at the time the most prestigious game was the North vs South."

Vidale, who was primarily a batsman, recalled playing against high-quality opposition such as former West Indies batsman Andy Gauteaume.

Browne hailed the impact of Vidale on national sports.

"It was my pleasure to VFOTT nominate him for the award for his long years of devoted and loyal service to T&T football. He was also a cricketer an outstanding cricketer of national repute. My own view is that it was long overdue. We at VFOTT had honoured him the year before along with other national contributors.

"On behalf of VFOTT, I express my sincere thanks to Her Excellency, the President of the Republic Paula-Mae Weekes and the Prime Minister for considering Mr Vidale for the Chaconia Silver award, which was well deserved."

Browne also congratulated Jerry Hospedales (Chaconia Medal Gold) and Lincoln "Tiger" Phillips (Humming Medal Silver) on their national awards.

Good call on Edgar Vidale. Almost stunning that at 88 ... without Selby weighing in he would have been on the margins. :applause:

Think of the 2022 conversation regarding reparations as the item tabled for future discussion when initially raised for negotiation during talks in 1834. A lot of intere$t has accrued.
