Re: U17s cup replays

Just found out that Metro are playing Playford in the finals. Congrades to the boys BUT Playford did lose to croydon in the semis , but they must have been naughty :( Croydon has a few senior players (18s and Reserves) playing down. Although they were age appropriate (still under 17) they hadn't pa...

Re: Juniors in same league as Seniors, will this happen in 2

i think majority of people are becoming more educated on the winning-vs-development mentality in our game. i just hope we don't go too far in the opposite direction. Kids still need to want to win, its that mentality that separates the good from the elite. its up to the coaches to ensure that the wa...

Re: Junior/Youth Trials

Re: JPL team stripped of all competition points

Matty you do realise that the player was not overage but someone from the club failed to pick up he wasnt registered i will admit i didn't read past the first page as it was the same stuff.

Re: JPL team stripped of all competition points

this all wouldn't matter if people weren't obsessed with results. I know there are "rules" but what if the kid was under-developed, and even though he was 15, it was best for his development to be playing u14s? All i care about is the kids, not the ego of parents or coaches. Kids "stay down" at scho...

Re: too young for u18?

Fair comments matty2323 but I think you will find 'game' training (depending on how you define it) continues into 18s and perhaps beyond. There are players aged 13-14 that are more advanced in game intelligence than many I have seen in the 16s and 17s, and these are often readier to play 18s than t...

Re: Huge Scorelines

20+ goal margins can be avoided marty2323 and I bet you were on the right side of the ledger. Nobody gains from that kind of match despite you putting a gloss on it. To pretend that a team down 20-0 is not affected by the state of play is defying human nature. Sure kids need to handle winning and l...

It's interesting that some seem to make excuses as to why certain kids were chosen for SAP over others and what club you choose at U6 say, is the only thing that determines whether you get into programs like SAP.
