    seems like we are on the road to re-establishing ourselves in the CFU following our self imposed hiatus from international fixtures.

    Well done.

    Next up: given finite financial resources, continuing re-engagement in the region. This may involve a hard look at the Hogges.


    • Rockfish#1and#2 says:

      @ Frank Talk,
      Why do you think we may need to take a hard look at the Hogges?

      • FrankTalk says:


        This just my view but:

        Unless the BFA secure more financing they may need to decide between competing in CFU competitions (including playing international friendlies) versus unofficial national team games, funding the Hogges, heck even the Clyde Best tournament (or how its run and funded) may need to re-considered.

        The context is that the national programme is shifting back from the “developmental and winning losses” phase to showing that we can be competitive in the CFU.

        Trying to find the right balance is going to require some tough calls….


        • Rockfish#1and#2 says:

          Ok, just wondering.
          For the most part I agree with you. Any ideas as to how the BFA can increase their funding? It seems unlikely that Government will be of much assistance.

          • FrankTalk says:

            Well that’s a tricky question.

            At the national level we theoretically need to show a continuing national programme and that we can be competitive to attract funding.

            In adding the Caribbean Cup (and thus a path to the Concacaf Gold Cup) which we arguably can much further than World Cup or Olympic qualification; we for the first time, have a genuine case to make: as opposed to a world cup campaign (with qualification remote) every four years.

            On the other hand, frankly speaking, there is very little infrastructure and a dearth of (financial) resources at the club level which is needed to support the national programme. Also while we still have folks voicing a generic concern about “what’s going on at the clubs” or retaining the view that only 3 or 4 local coaches are capable, its going to be tough to make a holistic case for funding.

            So again a tough task….

            My guess is a good run in the Caribbean Cup will be the catalyst.


            • Rockfish#1and#2 says:

              The Caribbean Cup seems a sensible choice. Thank you for your thoughts.

        • James says:

          Utter nonsense Franky–just plain BS!

          • FrankTalk says:

            Thanks for the quality comments and for enriching the dialogue. Wwant another dark and stormy?

  9. FrankTalk says:

    Take note: but for a sloppy late goal conceded against Guyana we would be second in the group with a shot at qualification.

  10. F1Mikal in NYC says:

    I want a Bermada national team replica shirt.
    How can i get one?

    • Rockfish#1and#2 says:
