  1. Congratulations to the Micoud Team. Earlier this year Poch had the team, do you think that Butcher just took the team from zero and made them heroes. You guys need to stop this and give both coaches what they deserve. You guys have 2 good coaches as far as I'm concerned one learned from the other. I think they should put differences a side. So persons like you will have nothing to talk about.

  2. Gr8 Dane? Don't you have anything better to do, u guys just like to drag person's name to the dirt. I know the gentle man you are referring to, I'm a coach in the US and this very respected coach told me of some players he wanted me to have a look at for scholarship opportunities in January and that's the crap you choose to blog, I was at the stadium and we left together since I did not want to be caught in traffic, I am rather appalled at your rant which is unfounded you should be ashamed of yourself. #Distasteful. No wonder the universities rather go scouting to other parts of the world. I was born in St Kitts, Our thinking and hate is immeasurable.

  3. Well done coach Cornie,you just proved haters n critics wrong,all those who had no confidence in u,especially greedy former micoud coach ALAIN PROVIDENCE,that u r da man ov da moment,n u achieve feats he cud neverattain,to be da 1st player coach to win blackheart, that's y out ov shame,he ran from da grounds b4 da presentation ceremony, had we lost,he wud hv stayed,cuz that's what he came to see. But da tremendous talent we posess in both defence and attack,wif this current crop of young men,didn't grant him his wish. So wish u da best next year,we surely gonna defend our crown,n prove to them it was no fluke!!!

  4. Congratulations to Team Micoud, Coach Cornelius "Bull" Butcher, Manager Andre "Ridah" Charlery and the entire community of Micoud and its football fans. This was a true team effort. Our guys played scintillating attacking football, defended resolutely, and were discipline throughout ( not a single red card, or any signs of disunity).

    You guys really made us proud. You looked determined from the onset so kudos to the coaching and managing staff for motivating you and instilling confidence in the team. Keep that spirit.
