How bad was Jedinak!
His passing completion rate under pressure can't have been higher than 10%.

Re: New Junior Structure 2014

I'm glad they've postponed it. IMO all players (juniors especially) benefit from playing against players of equal or slightly better ability, that's why we have a PL and SL, you derive very little benefit or pleasure from losing 10-0 or winning 10-0. So why would we force juniors to do anything dif...

Re: New Junior Structure 2014

Football, if played at a high level, needs a considerable amount of dedication. In most places in the world it is played all year round, with a break of about 3 months.

I thought this was a very entertaining, thrilling match to watch. Clearly, Australia conceded before the kick-off that they wouldn't be able to match Japan on the skill level - and rightly so. Japan are great to watch they only need to become a bit more clinical in front of goal. I haven't seen the ...
