  • T&T reminds me of Arsenal (both of whom I am an avid supporter), where you blame the coach and naievely refuse to acknowledge that our talent pool is not up to scratch. Additional, the level of competition and professionalism at the local level is subpar at best. Past administrations have squandered huge amounts of money on foreign coaches without realizing any return on the investment. Whatever we do next, it must be thoughtful and measured. State your plan and give us a timeline that we can follow, otherwise it will be “the same old Khaki pants”.
