  1. That's the Montopoli role of General Secretary AKA the CEO. That's the executive who is paid to run the CSA. President is technically a voluntary governance role who hires and fires the Chief Executive
  2. The judge in Trinidad has ruled against FIFA. Previous reports state it would take 12 to 18 months for any judgement to be overturned. Essentially, they'll be remain banned from FIFA for years barring something drastic. http://www.insideworldfootball.com/2020/10/14/trinidad-court-rules-fifa-hands-control-suspended-ttfa-back-wallace-crew/
  3. This is incredible. He was homeless
  4. Listening to that whole clip and reading between the lines, it sounds like money is an issue. The US pays 10 to 15K per game if I remember correctly. Obviously the CSA isn't matching that
  5. Sounds like there will be a court decision Friday that would seal T & T's fate. http://www.insideworldfootball.com/2020/10/07/ttfa-will-lose-world-cup-spot-isnt-complaint-dec-18-friday-real-deadline/
  6. I really feel they should push the Gold Cup back to 2022. They would get first choice squads and the prep for the world Cup would bring extra attention from media and fans. A tournament with B and C squads in a packed summer really devalues the tournament Edit: There's also no guarantee of full stadiums in 2021.
  7. Mega bump. Latest Footy Prime podcast with JDG is very interesting. Fills in a lot of the blanks about his time in Europe. Best part is that Deportivo tried to push him in to a sham marriage with a Portuguese woman to get an EU passport. https://podcasts.google.com/?feed=aHR0cHM6Ly9mZWVkcy5idXp6c3Byb3V0LmNvbS82MzYyMzgucnNz&ep=14&episode=QnV6enNwcm91dC01NjQyMzIw
  8. With the awful timing in July and the overlap with the Olympics, expect some c-level squads in this tournament.
  9. Reminds me of the time Dwayne De Rosario won MLS Goal of the Decade but the same goal didn't even get goal of the year.
  10. In terms of the WCQ schedule, I predict FIFA will push the intercontinental playoff back to September 2022 just two months before the World Cup. CONCACAF needs another 4 dates to complete this and I can't see FIFA adding any more midseason windows. They already added that January 2022 window.
  11. Previous reports stated that Trinidad would only forfeit games during suspension as opposed to being chucked out of WCQ entirely. Covid delaying the October matches until next year has saved them from elimination.
  12. I remember the first few years of TFC's existence, TSN was similarly dismissive in pretending MLS did not exist. In those years, CBC had most of the rights with the leftover games on Sportsnet's regional channel and Gol TV. Then TSN became a rights holder and poof, it's all over Sportscentre with press conference reaction and the whole 9 yards. I would love to know how much ESPN influences these decisions. TSN is 33% owned by ESPN, hence all the coverage of Korean baseball, NWSL, WNBA and numerous other 2nd rate US content properties that ESPN happens to produce.
  13. You must have googled that wire story because it's nowhere to be found on their soccer page or their main page
