4-REAL is Stars Soccer Review Volume 12

Stars Soccer Review (SSR) upcoming magazine is called 4-REAL and it features Portuguese captain and Real Madrid's star forward Cristiano (CR7) Ronaldo on the cover.

SSR magazine has covered David Beckham (Back to Basics), Thierry Henry (Accomplished) and Lionel Messi as the Unstoppable with their unique football assets in earlier volumes.

 

In this Volume 12 we will be covering Cristiano Ronaldo many physical attributes which are by far the most of any active soccer/football player dating back to Pele era. 

 

Over the better part of six highly competitive years in football there was and still is a consensus that Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo is the two best players in the world. While we agree, we did not agree with the terminology of anyone being the best ever since as mentioned it is a disrespect to past and future players and virtually impossible to determine over-time.

 

The emergence of Neymar as Brazil's star player and Barcelona's leading scorer adds credence to what we at SSR magazine have been saying all along about the best ever terminology being complicated.

 

While most of the players are assessed relative to their accomplishments after completing a season we can go beyond the numbers to define their attributes as a player and teammate.

 

Hence, Stars Soccer Review consensus of the best players will always incorporate players assets beyond a season.

 

But in spite of all the intangibles, one thing is for certain; beyond the biases, beyond the crests,  beyond the numbers, the player with the best physical attributes in football is Cristiano Ronaldo (CR7) and for anyone to question such an obvious and compelling fact is to try and defy logic.

Stars Soccer considers CR7 physical attributes as a footballer are 4-REAL....Stay Tuned

 

 

 

Bill Trotman's Interview for Morvant Love by Aldwyn McGill

 

Morvant Love magazine features Paul Emmanuel "Bill" Trotman on the cover. It was produced to show the many good things that came out of the Morvant district. Morvant is located on the eastern edge of Port of Spain which is the capital of Trinidad and Tobago.

Since the 1950s Morvant has produced some of the creme of the crop to represent Trinidad and Tobago. It was Dennis Lawrence from Coconut Drive in Morvant who scored the decisive goal for Trinidad and Tobago to defeat Bahrain 1-0 that sent the Soca Warriors to the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.

Morvant also produced top entertainers such as the multi-talented Paul "Bill" Trotman, calypsonian Donric "Funny" Williamson, Singing Sandra, and Jazz and Blues singer Mavis John, and many more who represented the country in different disciplines.

As one of the elder statesmen of Morvant, Bill Trotman (as he is more familiarly known) was the logical pick to be on the cover of this special Morvant Love issue of SSR magazine.

Bill was born in Port of Spain, Trinidad, and after a few years in Woodbrook moved to 45 Cicada Street, Morvant at the age of eight.

You can watch Trotman's Interview by Aldwyn McGill as he recalled moving to Morvant in 1942 when there was no electricity.

It was in the gallery (porch) at his Cicada home where he talked about Morvant breeze, the history, and the misguided negative stigma towards the area he calls "Lovable".

 

 

 

SSR Magazine to release Aldwyn McGill's football bio' called "Aldwynable".  

 

In Caribbean circles the name Aldwyn "Midget" McGill is usually associated with football and winning. Based on his 85% career winning percentage Aldwyn's "Vintage Midget" football Biography refers to him as "Aldwynable".  Aldwyn started his soccer career as a midfield player and transitioned to become the most prolific goal scorer in the Toronto Caribbean soccer Community from the late seventies until the end of his career in the new millennium.

But whether as a midfielder or as a forward Aldwyn has always been rated as one of the top players in the leagues he has played.

Aldwyn highest accomplishment as a player was when he was selected to the Trinidad and Tobago squad to undergo specialize training for international duty (FIFA World Cup Germany '74)

Aldwyn's national football exposure came at a time when the two McGill brothers were playing for Colts Club of Belmont in the Port of Spain Football League (P.O.S.F.L).

However, the national scene was not as intriguing as it should have been for a young upcoming football star like Aldwyn after he watched the ups and downs his brother encountered on the T&T team prior to him being called up and the national team being sequestered in '72 for training in Tetron Bay, Carenage.  Hence, Aldwyn receiving a Canadian (landed immigrant) visa during that time seemed like a no brainer for him to relocate.

Colts football administrators were not entirely ecstatic at Aldwyn's decision to migrate to Canada just two weeks after being called to the T&T national squad was also one game before the club won the prestigious Best Dark Virginia (BDV) Cup.

There are those who were oblivious to the fact that Aldwyn could not catch a break from coaches who did not look beyond his statue when he was growing up. They did not know that  "Too small" was the operative word Aldwyn had heard when he was auditioning to showcase his talent in the main football market in Port of Spain.

One of the biggest pill Aldwyn had to swallow was after he was deprived of the opportunity to showcase his football skills, when players of lesser talent were chosen because of their bigger size. But to his credit he walked to another team training session in the same Savannah area and was picked up by then coach Polly Regis of Maple Club which happened to be one of the most prestigious football club in Trinidad. The try outs were for the newly instituted U-19 Juvenile Division at the time and the Maple exposure was not only a valuable experience, but it turned out to be the opportunity that enabled Aldwyn to be seen by the top coaches in Port of Spain.

 

"Aldwynable" quotations "I must say that I was blessed to be born into a family with deep spiritual roots. As the last of my mother's seven children and coming from a poor family and I had the best examples to follow.

Teaching is the main profession in the family and to this day making new friends and forming new relationships is very normal. 

As players we were always reminded that there was no letter I in the word team but after putting in the extra work to improve our games our philosophy was that there is an m and e (me) in team which meant that everyone had to bring something to the table (game) with a 100% effort as the minimum requirement. 

What paved my way was the unwavering support of my family especially my two older brother, (Leroy and Victor) who played football at a high level.  Family kept me as down to earth as humanly possible but their support could not prepared me for some of my early football experiences which brought me crashing down to earth.

One such experience was at Fatima College Ground in Mucurapo, Port of Spain when I was invited to train with the Trinidad Under 19 squad for a tour to Bermuda. And when the names for the tour was called at the end of the practice, there was a pause before my name was mentioned. The pause was to inform me that the scouting report "indicated that the players in Bermuda were bigger than those of my statue", hence I was not selected to make the trip.

It was a bitter-sweet moment. The bitter taste was because it was another occasion when I was overlooked because of my size. The sweet was the fact that my name was mentioned and the Bermuda tour was eventually cancelled. Even sweeter was the fact that that U-19 experience was the last time that size was ever an issue for the rest (35 years) of my playing career. .....Stay Tuned
