    Wow, I didn’t see that coming. To bad Larry.

  2. Bob says:

    Saw it coming big time .. He’s done nothing to improve our local game and that is indisputable .

    He stated in his manifesto that he would improve coaching throughout the region despite a track record that is quite the opposite – throughout his tenure as BFA President…

  3. PBanks says:

    I’d think that was a surprising and resounding defeat, considering that one would think the CFU members would back one of their own.

    Hopefully the small nations won’t get marginalized from the region now that a representative of one of the bigger countries is in charge.

  4. Legalgal says:

    Just as well he’s got his fall back job sorted.

    • Bob says:

      Indeed – please may that forever separate him from football …he is ..as it relates to football – a trait that could be overlooked if he made a single meaningful contribution to the game – he hasn’t and I suspect that it was his undoing – his opponent played the game and that does count …although there are sitting members of our current FA that make it hard to defend that statement …sigh!!!!

  5. Smith says:

    Thank the football gods. How is going to help them when he hasn’t fix the game at home yet. They need a person who works hard not more enigmas in suits.

  6. Terry says:

    For Gods sake folks.
    He is No.1 -#1 in Government Legal.

    Do your job that everyone bitched and moaned about to be given to a Bermudian.

    Play soccer with your children/Grand children.

    What more do these PLP fools want.

    Shalom.

    well, i’m kind of glad, being the DPP needs full-time attention

    President Mussenden, It was a valiant effort for a BFA President to get within 10 votes of becoming the CONCACAF President. An island of 65,000 with barely 6,000 registered players and you placed us on the world map once again! A true inspiration to many young people that anything is possible, if you work hard and stick to your principles. Well done Sir!
