Re: Time for Richie and cohorts to go?

For me I'd need to see what Skilleroos have achieved. I hear a lot about it but wouldn't have a clue what they've done. Ultimately, time will tell as to whether the program has worked. I'm expecting elite players with above average core shills should go on and play not just in SA but interstate and ...

Re: Kids watch Van Persie

Is Van Persie the best technical striker in world football for kids to watch?? His balance. His skill. His awareness. His technical ability to fool defenders & remain calm under pressure. Left foot,right foot or the head all the same ability. crosses the ball from left or right wing & always finds ...

Not likely to happen - hopefully you encourage the kids to work hard at school and not fill their heads with ideas of something that is very unlikely to happen.
I know I shouldn't, but I'm being sarcastic.

Re: Is winning everything

With regard to winning, another way to look at this is: What kind of team do you want your child to play in? a. One that always wins b. One that always looses c. One that wins some, draws some, and loses some. I think the best is option c. but probably the most important part is that the child has ...

Re: Is winning everything

I know this is a Junior Forum but consider this. If Adelaide United were to lose every game would crowds increase, stay the same or reduce? Winning is important.
If they were to win every game how would crowds react. I would get a little bored.

Re: Socceroos vs Iraq

Negative play. Hardly no shots at goal in first half. Ridiculous yellow cards and Neill should've got red. Kruse played well but gee he behaves like a whiny little kid.

Pretty sad when we rely on pensioners to score goals.

Can't be sure. As many have said on this forum,'Winning isn't everything'. Perhaps policy at AC is to develop players and not worry about winning.
