Yes, Donovan and myself know Lincoln Taffe very well as an outstanding
player for Constant Spring and now in the masters league playing
curtis22 (Dec 20, 2005 10:21:32 AM)
why is it you think that spectator support is so bad in the premier
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:21:32 AM)
Spectator support has been growing and has grown again this year,
but needs to be greatly improved to fill stadiums regularly. In
Kingston there are many other forms of entertainment and the economics
are difficult. So people dont always come out to games but watch
on television or listen on radio. But there is still great interest.
duggy (Dec 20, 2005 10:21:58 AM)
keep up the good work
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:21:58 AM)
Thanks very much and that is our aim for the remainder of the season
and the season to come.

why jamaica doesnt play in the world champion football chip
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:24:06 AM)
Actually we did as Harbour View last year but was eliminated at
the quarter final stage by DC United. CONCACAF champions, Saprissa
of Costa Rica lost out in the quarter finals of the world club champions
against Liverpool only last weekend. Liverpool lost in the finals
to Sao Poala of Brazil.

Hi, I have a friend who lives in Harbour View but has never been
to your matches. I'm sure there are many more like her. What can
your club do to include more person from the surrounding community.
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:25:13 AM)
Invite them to come out. We have special prices for Harbour View
residents and a special section for them to support. We have found
that once they come they enjoy it and return many times over.
MichaelAngello (Dec 20, 2005 10:26:09 AM)

days gone when they use to play constant spring and from there I
reliaze that Harbour view is going to be strong

thanks for the recognition to be strong and we are working hard
to be consistent.
footballfan (Dec 20, 2005 10:26:55 AM)

the importance of working as a unit.

Question to the guy in the white t-shirt. What role do you play
in the squad, and who is your mentor when it comes to football?
I guess you could all answer seperately. Mine is Pele... no one
in my opinion can match him.
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:38:45 AM)

i am sure there are many good players they play also in liverpool

play rather in your own country
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:41:51 AM)
Lovell: I would love to play outside of Ja. especially for Manchester
United. Some of the players I idolise are from that club, David
Becham and Cantona.
hawkadia (Dec 20, 2005 10:42:58 AM)
good day, and seasons greetings, in terms as recruiting new talents
what stategies do use discover and to mentally prepare them for
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:42:58 AM)
Donovan: As we allude to earlier on - that we start at an early
age. We also do scouting of players fro m the Manning Cup and other
ricmankul (Dec 20, 2005 10:43:42 AM)
do you have many offers from european countries for your players
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:43:43 AM)
Clyde: Currently we are in discussions, but offers tend to come
after trials or international games. So we are expecting some more
within the next 6 - 8 months.
rhatid (Dec 20, 2005 10:45:12 AM)
Question to Ryan Thompson / Leighton Murray: Harbour View's goalkeepers
are very good but seem prone to silly mistakes in big games, do
you think you can break that trend?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:45:12 AM)
Donovan: We have been working with them mentally and so far they
have responded. Actually we conceded 7 goals in 16 games and 1 from
the last 10 now being the best defensive team in the league as well
as the best attacking.
curtis22 (Dec 20, 2005 10:46:26 AM)
so lovell has there been any international indicating interest in
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:46:27 AM)
Lovell: There were some interest from England but there needs to
be more international caps for him to qualify for world . So hopefully
within the next year or so that will be possible or in the wider
footballfan (Dec 20, 2005 10:47:10 AM)
It must be difficult keeping the team motivated and coming to practice
regularly. What systems do you have in place for motivation?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:47:12 AM)
Donovan: First they are professional players. And its more on demand
that they are required to be at training on a regular basis rather
than motivating them.
footballfan (Dec 20, 2005 10:50:04 AM)
Have you though about raising money by creating events around football
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:50:04 AM)
Clyde: Yes definately. One such event is our annual anniversary
of the club on March 4, 2006, we become 32 years old. We usually
celebrate that as an event so too we are currently celebrating our
first year as the first JA club to be Caribbean club champions that
took place on December 15, 2004. The shirt that Lovell is wearing
is a special shirt around that event with that particular team and
the shirt Donovan is wearing is the shirt we wore against DC United
in that historic game at Harbour View. These shirts can be purchased
through the club offices at(876)938-7155 or www.hvfc.net.
fancy_face (Dec 20, 2005 10:51:20 AM)
DO U GUYS GET ANY HELP FROM THE JAMAICAN GOVERNMENT
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:51:20 AM)
Clyde: Very little. But we are currently as premier league clubs
having conversation with the JFF to present a comprehensive document
of growth tht the government would participate in to all premier
league clubs become professional units.
ricmankul (Dec 20, 2005 10:53:12 AM)
if you would have a lot of money would you do like in europe to
buy best players like real madrid
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:53:13 AM)
Donovan: It is a difficult question. On a local basis I would say
no because the other clubs would not be able to do so, hence the
competitiveness would not be attractive for spectators.
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:54:07 AM)
Clyde: I think the marketing of the league and by extension the
clubs could be more attractive to sponsors and spectators if we
could afford to bring in a few top quality players within the leagues.
wattapen (Dec 20, 2005 10:56:22 AM)
What are some of the marketing strategies you have in place for
the club to make profits
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:56:22 AM)
Clyde: One such is the branded top on display here. That is for
supporters to purchase - this can be had at www.hvfc.net or through
the club offices at (876) 938-7155. This is a waterproof based top
with the Harbour View logo and it comes in the reverse colour blue
with gold, also with the hood.
wattapen (Dec 20, 2005 10:57:01 AM)
Do u think the club are marketing the players properly?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:57:01 AM)
Clyde: Yes. But there is always room for improvement especially
if funds are available.
fancy_face (Dec 20, 2005 10:58:50 AM)

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:59:59 AM)
Donovan: Well not a special center but they train at the facilities
at the mini stadium in Harbour View but with special youth groups
ranging from age 7 to 20 years.
wattapen (Dec 20, 2005 11:00:21 AM)
I should commend the Club for their performances in their performances
through the league and wish them all the best
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:00:22 AM)

are you guys to cope with a even more competetive football programme/s...?

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:04:17 AM)
Clyde: Yes we would still maintain a prominent presence and we are
hopeful that the level of competetiveness in the Caribbean improves
quickly. That can only help all of us in this region.

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:05:19 AM)
Cyde: We guys are youths who grew up in the community through the
football system and has passed on the same winning formula now evident
within the club.
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:06:01 AM)
It is not base on affordability, but on commitment to the club,
to the game and to the community above oneself.
duggy (Dec 20, 2005 11:07:00 AM)
does your organization have any type of magazine and how i can purchase
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:07:00 AM)
Clyde: We have switched from a magazine format to a digital format,
hence the website for the last 6 years and the information is dispensed
there regularly. www.hvfc.net.

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:08:54 AM)

talent would be better seen.

anyone has ever had discussions with John Barnes? Is there someone
else you think we should be talking to?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:13:13 AM)
Donovan: I dont like to refer to any special person as a coach but
Wendell Downswell is doing a fantastic job and should be given the
opportunity to prove himself.
AVIER (Dec 20, 2005 11:13:56 AM)
u.s has been fastly becoming an indomitable force to reckon with

What is your view on the future of the team
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:15:08 AM)
Donovan: If we continue on the path that we start, there is no reason
why we cannot be champions of the Caribbean and CONCACAF.
rhatid (Dec 20, 2005 11:15:47 AM)
I'd love to know...which team do you( Harbour View) have the worse
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:15:47 AM)

Club championship on December 15, 2004 at Tivoli.

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:20:27 AM)
Clyde: I would like the utility bills of clubs (water and light
) in particular to be waived. Tax exemption for companies investing
in or willing to invest in participating premier league clubs and
the right to have a football lottery in support of the sports development.
Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:21:00 AM)
ok my question is, when will the JFF become more recognized across

get positive results.

All: GREAT. Good for them and the region.
Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:22:43 AM)
how r u able to pay off all the players everymonth and also pay
off all the expense that are there?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:22:44 AM)
Clyde: We have other businesses outside of football that assist.
Sponsorships, gate receipts, bill board and sign board rentals as
well as rental of our stadium help to defray some of the costs.
But still more is needed for survival and growth.
*Stunna* (Dec 20, 2005 11:24:03 AM)
do u guys normally loose players to other Premiere league sides...
if so, how many...?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:24:03 AM)
Donovan: Normally no. However this season in particular we have
