As you can see I have not closed down the forum. I plan to replace it in the next two weeks with a new forum and chat line in a integrated format. Also, the last game report between Trinidad and Tobago and Jamaica will be made available on Monday. Finally the PFL server will be up on Monday. Thank you once again for remaining cool.
Thursday 22nd April, 1999
It was left to Yorke's strike partner of Andy Cole to put away the winner in the 84th minute. United won the game 3-2 to advance to the European final on May 24th in Barcelona versus Bayern Munich. It is the first time since 1968 that Manchester United have reached the final of the European cup. The score by Yorke is his eighth goal in Europe.
T&T falls in World Rankings
Mexico (13th) still leads the pack in Concacaf followed by the USA (26th).
Hislop commits to T&T.
According to reports in the Trinidad Express, while in Trinidad Hislop informed team management that he will commit his future to the Trinidad and Tobago national team. Hislop is angry that the England team selectors have bypassed him several times in the past. The highest level Hislop ever played for was the English B team last year.
Hislop will not be available for Trinidad and Tobago's game versus South Africa on May 6th in Port of Spain.
"No more T&T players for the MLS!"
Last year Stern John wanted out of Columbus, but due to "contractual" obligations, found himself back in the MLS this year much to his disappointment and one German football executive with a extra, useless plane ticket at the Hasley Crawford stadium three weeks ago. John was robbed of the MLS player of the year by a league that wants to promote more hispanic patronage.
Now comes another attempt by the league to boost it's attendance by allocating Colombian international John Jairo Trellez to the Dallas Burn. Trellez has scored three goals from international 24 caps. The addition left the Burn with too many international players and that meant that they had to cut one player from the roster to make room for Trellez.
The axe fell on Mickey Trotman's head yesterday. This may be a blessing
in disguise for Trotman. There are a couple of European teams that are
looking at Trotman and the outright release by the league gives him an
opportunity to try out with them. However, according to one source, none
of his players will be playing in the MLS in the future.
