Hi TL:
I found this image in my archives the other day. Yes, it is a capture of a poster on a wall. This was when the man was young...a very long time ago. He traveled part of Canada & US taking this soccer team, playing such teams as Colorado State University and US Air force Academy...and so on. He was both the Captain & the Coach of this team at the same time. The team consisted of players from Madagascar, Nigeria, England, US, Canada, Germany, Holland & so on. But he himself was a little Indian.

Image shot on a wall with no repairs to leave the poster look.
before you read the WS you have to guess who is he and where he is standing!A wonderful reminder of a wonderful time.

Have fun
[with some courage to post this]

Captain and coach, eh? Very cool -- I didn't guess, I just read the signature on the image.
A fun posting from your archives

Hi David
It is a good thing to save old papers, this one shows the importants in it. The workshop show a much junger man. TFS.

Hi David,

Man, this is some awesome historical note and a poster shot.
Good angle.

And to be honest with you, I spotted you straight away. Standing on a side (not crowded with the others) made you stand out and more visible.

Congrats on your past time achievements.

PS. been busy lately, thus no photos :(, but over the next two weeks have a dog's nanny over here (g/f's sister staying with us), so will have some free time for my own stuff, including photography - what I love the most right now but just can't find the time.

merhaba David;
Great POV, all in all a very good photo, well done.

Estupendos recuerdos.
Me llama la atención el slogan que se encuentra en la Biblia, en Filipenses 3: 14 "Pressing for the prize".
Un cordial saludo, JL.

Hello David,

Hello David! Soccer coach too. And now David Beckham has moved to America to help raise their soccer profile. On TV last night David Beckham said the word, "SOCCER" and said he'll have to get used to calling it that now... No doubt he's getting paid more than you did back then!!
And were the ladies playing soccer too?

Hello David,

That is wonderful shot. Liked the way you presented it, looks really from OLD newspaper. Sharp, well compose.d TFS


Hi Master David,
A real and very personal poster, really a "decisive moment". TFS, Captain, and all the best.
