St. Kitts Nevis and Guyana have each dropped 4 on The Bahamas. Come June we doh want to hear NO nonsense regarding putting balls in the back of the net.

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.

Doncaster Rovers played Charlton Athletic today and the game just finished. Both Ryan Inniss and John Bostock played the full 90 minutes. Charlton won 1-0
Inniss returned to the starting line up today for Charlton after almost 3 months out with an injury and the had been on a bad run while he was out.
Both teams played a 4-3-3 formation which is what TnT plays so they can fit in to the style TF is trying to play.
We damn well need a Centre back (Inniss) and a creative midfielder (Bostock).

Hopefully we can get them for the June game. Both clubs end their seasons on 8th May. So the TTFA, Terry, Sports Ministry, National Security, TT High Commission in UK all have ample time to talk, work out availability, passports, training schedules etc with them and other eligible players that we damn well need.

Hah check my forum logo - watched it myself and thought they'd both do a job in the Trini squad. I imagine Innis ain't interested due to his dad, but who knows....

Why donít you all stop annoying John bostock and nick de leon, canít you see these fellers donít want  anything to do with us? and honestly I donít think that they would bring anything special to the squad, BTW whoís place are they going to take? I donít believe bostock is better than what we have in the midfield and certainly not jovin, telfer or levi, as for de Leon, IMO he cannot replace molino no day of the week, so what do we need the for?

Leave these people alone, you all sound like youíre begging now. let work with what we have until better could be done.

Recruitment is about multiple conversations, showing interest, updating about changes, informing, insisting and convincing.

You sound like you are using Rowley's Theory of Vaccine Acquisition: do not beg. Who is begging?

Only one way of finding out definitively. That is to bring dem.

I don't care whose place they take. Show me the sacred cow.

It's also not necessarily about replacing a presumptive starter. It is prospectively about replacing a substitute.

What ego and false pride. Them men were practically shoe in for the team and for  whatever reasons, they refuse. Up to now I have not gotten satisfactory answers  as to Deleon and Bostock refusal when we came calling.

From what I understood, Bostock had suited up for T&T, wore the jersey, traveled with the team to play in the tournament where Levi Garcia scored a double, and couldnít play due to FIFA restrictions.

Not sure what occurred subsequently.

As for DeLeon, he wanted to play but the difficult lay at the time in his fatherís refusal to go to Port Of Spain to sign the necessary documentation.

Again....not sure what has since transpired.

Asylumseeker is correct.  Recruitment is a process.  Some do it successfully.  Others donít.

My original statement remains the same.  We need them far more than they need us.

I hope i'm not being rude mate, but the british recruitment process makes me a tad angry at times. you see these british born players are heavily indoctrinated to play for england at a very tender age. they sit and dream of the day that they would be capped if only for one game, and it's not until their hopes are dashed or it becomes apparent that they don't have the quality to be an england international do they ever consider a second option.

take for instance raheem sterling, that man came to england as a lad already knowing somewhere else, yet when the chance arrived he turned down the country of his birth to represent the lions....jamaic who? and it's the same with all of them.

they walk the streets talking all this jamaican patios and calling themselves yardie even though they've never been to the caribbean, but when it comes to football all that west indian crap goes out the window, it's only the african blokes who turn down england to play for their parents country.

 it boils my piss when blokes like bobby zamora and jay loyde who turned down an opportunity to go to a world cup and only because they thought england was a better option, and then we having to turn around and pacify them to join us, which makes me react in a negative way,

and even when bobby zamora had nothing else to play for he still refused to join us despite having a change of heart, the last being at fulham where clint dempsey convinced him that we were shit and he should never consider a call up from us, and not just him but hoyte and many other english lads who could have played for the parents country, but would only get on board when they are sure of not ever being capped for the three lions.

that is the only reason i said to forget these players and let them be, if they want to play for us then the door is open, their choice, but to go begging these 3rd division english brats is beneath us. i know as trinis we have way more pride than that, after all it's not only about football, it's about basic principles and dignity.

what about just winning the two matches left and keeping a clean sheet, wont that be better?

winning this match by 10 goals and losing to st kitts 1 nil proves what exactly?

it's so easy to lose prospective when inflated egos and false pride gets in the way.

Any how we end up scrapping with the Bahamas for anything but a comprehensive victory will be an indictment of the product ... even if 3 points are secured. Point blank. And that is the crux of the point made here. Agree. Unacceptable: a laboured 1-0 victory. Acceptable: a fluid and balanced performance that seals the deal without issue (for instance, conceding a goal).

Two separate matters. One match at a time. We are not going to lose to either opponent if we cater two XIs, each designed to rock the specific opponent in question. If the conviction is that we start the same players in both matches, post-match could be like Question Time in the House of Commons ... without parliamentary rules.

No, it is about competitive intelligence and being pragmatic. Where are the angels in this process?

Guys, I pulling allyuh stones on this one. I agree with him on this matter. Birchall, Boucaud and now Philips, Fenderup, Telfer decided to go for broke with TT, knowing full well on the administration and coaching level( to some extent), we are a bunch of f**king misfits. Birchall, Boucaud were not superstars and neither is Philip, Telfer and Fenderup. But the mere fact that they came, and are currently struggling and fighting to take us to the second round is all that I or WE can ask for. I, or we should be grateful to them. I am very grateful to You foreign borns.

Why donít you all stop annoying John bostock and nick de leon, canít you see these fellers donít want  anything to do with us? and honestly I donít think that they would bring anything special to the squad, BTW whoís place are they going to take? I donít believe bostock is better than what we have in the midfield and certainly not jovin, telfer or levi, as for de Leon, IMO he cannot replace molino no day of the week, so what do we need the for?

Leave these people alone, you all sound like youíre begging now. let work with what we have until better could be done.

Recruitment is about multiple conversations, showing interest, updating about changes, informing, insisting and convincing.

You sound like you are using Rowley's Theory of Vaccine Acquisition: do not beg. Who is begging?

Only one way of finding out definitively. That is to bring dem.

I don't care whose place they take. Show me the sacred cow.

It's also not necessarily about replacing a presumptive starter. It is prospectively about replacing a substitute.
I hope i'm not being rude mate, but the british recruitment process makes me a tad angry at times. you see these british born players are heavily indoctrinated to play for england at a very tender age. they sit and dream of the day that they would be capped if only for one game, and it's not until their hopes are dashed or it becomes apparent that they don't have the quality to be an england international do they ever consider a second option.

take for instance raheem sterling, that man came to england as a lad already knowing somewhere else, yet when the chance arrived he turned down the country of his birth to represent the lions....jamaic who? and it's the same with all of them.

they walk the streets talking all this jamaican patios and calling themselves yardie even though they've never been to the caribbean, but when it comes to football all that west indian crap goes out the window, it's only the african blokes who turn down england to play for their parents country.

 it boils my piss when blokes like bobby zamora and jay loyde who turned down an opportunity to go to a world cup and only because they thought england was a better option, and then we having to turn around and pacify them to join us, which makes me react in a negative way,

and even when bobby zamora had nothing else to play for he still refused to join us despite having a change of heart, the last being at fulham where clint dempsey convinced him that we were shit and he should never consider a call up from us, and not just him but hoyte and many other english lads who could have played for the parents country, but would only get on board when they are sure of not ever being capped for the three lions.

that is the only reason i said to forget these players and let them be, if they want to play for us then the door is open, their choice, but to go begging these 3rd division english brats is beneath us. i know as trinis we have way more pride than that, after all it's not only about football, it's about basic principles and dignity. 

No, it is about competitive intelligence and being pragmatic. Where are the angels in this process?

What do you think the US is doing?
donít want to pull rank here but I know the English mind set a little better than you, and even though they are for the most part second and third generation Caribbeans and Africans they still turn up their noses on our football. In their minds the only thing weíre good at is track and field and cricket, and only the lower division players without any prospect of wearing an england jersey jumps at the opportunity to play for us.

 I believing in asking but beseeching is where i draw the line, and thatís what weíre doing with bostock. Plus the lad is showing zero interest in representing us, so leave him be. if he wants to play for us the doors is always open and he knows where to find us.

From my point of view, the conversation is larger than any one player. Whatever pathologies people suffer from, based on their lived experiences in the UK, can be bridged with a proper welcome and excellent organization on the part of the TTFA. Bridged not remedied.

It is up to us/the federation to mould the narrative. I am not preoccupied about individual players. I am more concerned about structures and systems. Facing this reality has to overcome whether a player arrives on the basis of opportunism, adventurism or knowing the national anthem by heart. It is what it is.

Bigger brands are typically more attractive than smaller brands, but that doesn't impede smaller brands from pulling a share of the market and growing.

There is no room for emotion in this. We have a match against Montserrat in a few weeks. We will be having this conversation again.

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.
