Back in April George Quarashi, editor of Howler Magazine, went to Trinidad, stayed a couple of nights at the João Havelange Centre of Excellence, which FIFA paid for but Jack Warner owns, and spoke to a bunch of people about the ways that Jack helped and hurt soccer in the country. H interviewed journalists, players, and the current head coach of the national team, and it paints a pretty interesting picture.
One of the more interesting things to come out of hi reporting was a widely-held belief in Trinidad that the famous 1989 USA-Trinidad qualifier was fixed. Whether or not you believe this, or have heard this conspiracy, a bunch of people down there believe it. It’s a fascinating story, but you’ll have to decide for yourself how credible you think their suspicions are.
