Hi GM. Do you have a history of playing football in Jamaica?
Harbour View
Hello and yes I have a history of playing for the club and country.

what do you guys propose is to be done to improve the spectator support in premier league
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:18:48 AM)
A lot more consistent marketing of the club, the players and the league itself annually.

erbag (Dec 20, 2005 10:19:16 AM)
wad up fambily ...di jus want fi big up di habour view fc
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:19:16 AM)
I appreciate it and big up yourself.

AVIER (Dec 20, 2005 10:20:04 AM)

just want to know if any of the players know lincoln taffe, or any of the taffe brothers
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:20:05 AM)
Yes, Donovan and myself know Lincoln Taffe very well as an outstanding player for Constant Spring and now in the masters league playing for Shortwood.

curtis22 (Dec 20, 2005 10:21:32 AM)

why is it you think that spectator support is so bad in the premier league
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.

ricmankul (Dec 20, 2005 10:24:06 AM)
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.

footballfan (Dec 20, 2005 10:25:13 AM)
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)
well I must say tht harbour view is quite a team I remember the days gone when they use to play constant spring and from there I reliaze that Harbour view is going to be strong
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:26:09 AM)
thanks for the recognition to be strong and we are working hard to be consistent.

footballfan (Dec 20, 2005 10:26:55 AM)
How important is dicipline to the running of a team. Do you think Simoes had the right idea being a strong diciplinarian?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:26:55 AM)
Well, yes. Discipline not only in behaviour but players understanding the importance of working as a unit.

rhatid (Dec 20, 2005 10:27:19 AM)
Do u think the community of Harbour VIew supports the team enough?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:27:19 AM)
Not enough, but it has improved.

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:34:39 AM)
Donovan: No it is not the lack of spectator support that we did not qualify.

*Stunna* (Dec 20, 2005 10:35:17 AM)

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:37:20 AM)

asd (Dec 20, 2005 10:38:45 AM)
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)
Lovell: I play right midfield position and my mentor is David Becham.

fancy_face (Dec 20, 2005 10:39:33 AM)

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 team standards?
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 competitions.

ricmankul (Dec 20, 2005 10:43:42 AM)
do you have many offers from european countries for your players to transfer?
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 your talent
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 Europe.

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

fancy_face (Dec 20, 2005 10:51:20 AM)
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 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 10:58:50 AM)
Lovell: Ricardo Gardener - Bolton Wanderers, Damani Ralph - Rubin Kazan, Robert Scarlett - Real Salt Lake City and Jermaine Hue - Kansas City Wizards.

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 10:59:11 AM)
Christopher Harvey - W-Connections in Trinidad.

ricmankul (Dec 20, 2005 10:59:58 AM)
do you have special training centers for young talented football players?
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)

Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:02:03 AM)

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:02:05 AM)
Clyde: Hopefully very soon and ahead of the next world cup.

ricmankul (Dec 20, 2005 11:02:59 AM)
To each person: what kind of national soccer team do you like most beside your national soccer teams in your country?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:02:59 AM)
Lovell and Donovan: Brazil. Clyde: I would like to see the French team come back to their best.

*Stunna* (Dec 20, 2005 11:04:17 AM)
With the soon integration of the caribbean economies... how prepared are you guys to cope with a even more competetive football programme/s...? Do u think u will still be able to maintain a prominent presence...?
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 it
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.

white-chic (Dec 20, 2005 11:07:38 AM)
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:07:38 AM)
Lovell: I would love to. Please organise the transfer fees and he will be right there tomorrow.

ricmankul (Dec 20, 2005 11:08:11 AM)

what do you think needs to be done to improve the standard of play in jamaica as a whole
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:08:54 AM)
Donovan: With a higher competitive league which can be achieved through business investment in the clubs and the region.

LLEXAM (Dec 20, 2005 11:09:13 AM)
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:09:13 AM)
Clyde: Not enough.

asd (Dec 20, 2005 11:09:43 AM)

Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:11:31 AM)
Clyde why is it football is so bias in jamaica and that half the time we never get to see some of ur guys best tallents
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:11:31 AM)
Clyde: I cant speak for bias but with a lot more exposure on television and international club games and the national team, these players talent would be better seen.

fancy_face (Dec 20, 2005 11:11:48 AM)
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:11:49 AM)
All: Thank you fancy face.

asd (Dec 20, 2005 11:13:12 AM)
Who do you think should be coaching Jamaica? Do you know whether 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 in the soccer league......has anyone of you guys given any interest in playing in the u.s league.

Donovan: Yes, and hence we have two players presently playing in the league, Scarlett and Hue.

quitty (Dec 20, 2005 11:15:08 AM)
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 record against?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:15:47 AM)
Clyde: Historically , probably Boys town. But in recent years Arnett Gardens.

duggy (Dec 20, 2005 11:16:21 AM)

quitty (Dec 20, 2005 11:17:02 AM)
Can you recall the teams most memoriable game

Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:17:15 AM)
Donovan: I share the same as Lovell.

Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:19:02 AM)

quitty (Dec 20, 2005 11:20:27 AM)
What is it would you like the Government to do for football in Jamaica
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 the world and National League
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:21:00 AM)
Clyde: When they get back to staging national games reguarly and get positive results.

gol3 (Dec 20, 2005 11:21:22 AM)
We will be rapping up in 15 minutes... in that time we will try to answer as many questions as we can. If not we will try and bring the gentleman back as soon as we can....

AVIER (Dec 20, 2005 11:21:29 AM)

what do you think about our carribean neighbour, trinidad and tobago making it to the world cup in 2006
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:21:29 AM)
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 lost 12 players from last year's squad through school, international transfers and some players returning late from overseas.

Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:24:18 AM)
Do you think the Jamaican League is much better than other league in the caribbean?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:24:18 AM)
All: Much better.

Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:25:00 AM)
do you play any big cup or qualification with your team within the next years?
Harbour View (Dec 20, 2005 11:25:00 AM)
Clyde: We are currently discussing with some overseas clubs about possibilities in the summer and pre season 2006.

Guest (Dec 20, 2005 11:26:05 AM)
do u think as a club harbour view has taken care of marketing the football club both locally and internationally and what necessary steps u think could be made in the future to correct and capitalize on the niches in the football market
