The landscape of personalities across football in Trinidad and Tobago is peppered with egos that are less guardians of the game’s best interests and more protectors of their patches of dominion. It is also salted with other temperaments, willing masters to willing serfs and willing serfs to willing masters,  who are ultra cautious of those who do not render them patronage and tribute or relevance and survival. Richard Fakoory, to my assessment, was neither of these defensive, sharp-edged and unfortunate dispositions. He was approachable, collaborative, down to earth, engaging, frank, humble, transparent and non-triangulating. He appreciated that football would outlast him and that his responsibility was to the enduring greater good of the sport locally, rather than to the convenience of his fleeting present. In my estimation, this is one reason why he resisted participating in the arms race of escalating player wages that often lured fine players from his club on to perceived greener pastures, but that also occasionally bounced them back to Rangers as prodigal sons.

“On the first game day of the Concacaf Championship, I didn’t even have a TTFA badge or number on my game jersey. If that doesn’t paint the picture of how disrespected I was as a National Team player, I don’t know what will.

For the first time in awhile, I noticed how disjointed we are during our pre-tournament camp in Raleigh. We have cliques, like all teams do; but we have to have the maturity to see past differences for the good of football and country. That was hard to do this time but I believe it was hard to do because of two main reasons.

“I want real, lasting, impactful change for women’s football. David John-Williams ran his campaign on the premise of bringing women’s football to the forefront of his candidacy to lead the TTFA.

This Day in History

Friday, 22 April 2011

T&T's Defence Force beat Milerock FC of Guyana 3-0 in a CFU second leg club Champion's Cup qualifying match at the Larry Gomes Stadium to advance to the semi-finals on a 7-0 aggregate. Army goalscorers were Rodel Elcock in the 11th and a brace from Richard Roy in the 43rd and 89th minute sealed it for the Army side. 2010/2011 Pro League runner-up Caledonia AIA will face a tough test to join Defence Force in the semifinals after it went under to visitors, Tempete FC of Haiti 1-0 in the night’s second match. With the blink of an eye, Caledonia was made to rue that missed Kevon Woodley effort earlier on as Tempete captain, Junior Charles latched onto a pass down the right, and with debutant goalkeeper, Victor Thomas slow to react, he tucked the ball inside the near post in the seventh minute. Tempete will now return to St. Marc in Southern Haiti with an away goal in the bag, and await Caledonia's visit to their shores a week from today.
