  1. I think he’s doing well given what he has to work with. Couple of shocking results alongside some very good ones.

     

    Wondering, given his past, if he made the mistake of underestimating the lower teams. We’ve had great results vs the top teams.

     

    Whilst we aren’t safe but are needing to play u23’s, although mainly in defence, he is setting us up not to conceded. Hopefully this gives the young lads some confidence to kick on. 

     

    He got it wrong vs Millwall by including Stobbs although I’m not sure he had much choice. Had we had other options in sure he would have played them. 

     

    Does he deserve some credit for bringing Hirst back into the fold? Given what we have seen with his style, slowly slowly integrating young players, he may get 4/5 games before the end of the season.

     

    The interview questions are really poo. He’s asking the questions people want asked but with a bias. As Jos said, if we win, we don’t get those questions. If we lose to the pigs 3/4-0 which some thought we might he gets his ass handed to him for being too defensive... we drew and he get the praise.


  2. We own two good centerbacks that are coming back from injury (lees, hutch). We loaned another who we should sign (Fred) and have a bunch of promising young players.

     

    Playing three at the back we need 2/4 more depending on pudli’s contract and if Fred signs.

    And that's the way it should be Trev, but there is a question to be asked, why don't we produce black and mixed race players, when virtually every other big city club does. Even a club like Norwich do better on that score

     

    Haven't read the whole thread but we haven't produced any players recently bar palmer. We tried to sign Austin last year and rumours are looking at a South African. We have a couple of players that fit your question but aren't good enough. Recently we have had Helen, jj, small, antiono, Clarke etc, we have Thai owners. 

     

    Not it sure what your point is really


  4. i dunno if your interested to find it, but there's a thread i made in this subforum of an interview with Townsend and his story, compared to that of the barca academy.

     

    In a few lines, townsend said he used to jump out at night to play football and it was applauded. if you did the same at barca, you got kicked out.The kids at barca were taught the discipline to work hard and win, The kids at spurs never got this chance, 


  5. Winning doesn't give young kids confidence - the right learning environment does

     

    Conversely where academy coaches try to instill winning as important then kids can feel like failures if they don't win

     

    If the emphasis is always on the outcome rather than the process then it narrows down a hugely complex and fragile area such as skill acquisition and neuromuscular development to the result of a match - rather than the hours of nurtured practice and training

     

     

    Winning games does give kids confidence, its laughable you could suggest otherwise. 

     

    Given the correct environment, losing doesnt being an issue. 

     

    A simple thought for you. A coach who is improving the childrens skills, will have success. They will move up the ladder and the children they are coaching will have a better chance of doing so as well. A coach who is winning and improving the childrens skills will move up the ladder and the children will go with him. A coach who is winning but not improving skills will move up and the children will disappear. The coach will as well.


  6. No matter how good Madine is/isn't he's not got a hope in hell at Sheffield Wednesday as the fans just won't take to him.

     

     

     

    Thats not true at all. The "fans" have taken to people with less talent than he has...

     

    He's pretty much wasted any chance he has of making a decent chance of it here. Maybe he's suited to being the big fish, i dunno. 


  7. 1, Don't agree that winning matches at u11 (whatever) is important. It just isn't. It's not about the mythical "creating a winning mentality" - it's about creating a conducive learning environment for talent to flourish.

    Lots of kids at those ages don't even remember the score - their emphasis is on enjoyment and that fosters the urge to keep training and playing.

    Kids may be in winning teams but if they don't enjoy it they won't stick at it - simple as that.

    Also the focus needed to be taken away from "winning is everything" because it is really very simple to win games of youth football - the big, strong kids win

    Also winning doesn't enhance skill acquisition - correct and engaged practice does.

    2, Of course most adults who play at any level get their lifelong love for the game by playing at an early age. But that doesn't need to be in an u7 team whose focus is on winning rather than development

    3, Hanging onto talent was much less a problem when clubs were getting paid £10m for a promising 17 year old. Now all a club has to to is offer (for them) some spare change out of the petty cash and they can take any of our players if the player agrees to the move. We cannot set the fee and make it either prohibitive and/or a great windfall if he moves on. It is really very simple for clubs to prey on the gifted products of other acadamies

    4, It's the whole coaching culture in this country, Our coach and player development is utterly embarrassing. It's jobs-for-the-boys and we end up with wholly unsuited coaches parachuted into positions they have doen nothing to deserve.

    Anyone can do the basic coaching courses but it doesn't really help people become better at helping kids to become better - because the system is crap.

    A really good grass roots coach should have their ambition as getting as many kids as they can into professional clubs.

    instead they want to win leagues and plastic baubles to stick in their livivng room then brag about what a great coach they are by getting their team of 6ft 11 year olds winning 35-0 every week

    We are hopeless at producing player and have been pretty much such the outrageously rubbish academy system was dreamt up

    We must be the only country in the world who could possibly completely revamp facilities, resources and amount of players while hugely increasing spening - yet get bloody worse!

    3/ your point is a complete oversight of what happened as far back as 2010.

    4/ again you kinda miss the question I was asking. To answer you.

    A really good under xxx should be looking to be promoted to a higher grade.

    I'm replying on a phone.

    1/ you misunderstand what i said. Winning games give people esp, young lads confidence, which improves skill level. It's obv why.


  9. scram,

     

    Whilst i agree with most of what your saying, i have a few questions/points.

     

    1/ Winning matches at any age group IS important. The confidence gained from being part of a winning team is closely linked to improving a skill, if taught correctly.

     

    2/ Your right, very few players go under XXX year group to the first team. However, a high percentage of players that play as adults start of as part of a under XXX age group.

     

    3/ I disagree with EPPP completely, however hanging on to talent has always been a problem. Looking at Man U (the gigs, scholes, beckham age) and say Southampton now, a massive percentage of young players were picked up from other clubs. Do you think the players Southampton/man u poached would have made the impact they did had they stayed with the original clubs?

     

    4/ With regards to 'getting our act together.' Is the problem more of a case of not having the right culture/coaches between the under XXX and the first team rather than completely the youth coaches fault?


  10. So with the window now closed, I have to say I'm happy with the business we've done. To say I'm not easily pleased, would be a bit of an understatement, but we've managed to address three of the areas we needed to strengthen and we haven't lost anyone.Alright, the names were not perhaps what we hoped for, but Milan was never going to spend any money was he. Dielna gives us cover in two of the defensive positions, Drenthe brings a wealth of experience to our midfield, and offers us genuine quality delivery from the left. Hallam Hope brings some much needed pace to the attack. All in all, a satisfactory weeks work.

    Semi serious question. From your posts over the summer and the players we're linked to 'not being good enough.' What makes you happy now? Filled a gap? Fair play you said they are not what you expected but I feel you created a higher level of expectation in you head.


  11. For away games

    Fans of AFC Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion and Derby County will be among the first supporters to be offered the opportunity to watch coverage of their club playing away from home during midweek as part of a new broadcasting initiative by The Football League.

    Following the installation of a fibre-optic network that will eventually link all club stadiums, matches can now be beamed back to grounds, live in HD, at a fraction of the previous cost. As a result, clubs may now enter into agreements that will enable the away club to broadcast the match for the benefit of its own fans.

    Currently, this opportunity is open to clubs in the Championship, with League 1 clubs being connected to the fibre-optic network during the course of the current season and League 2 clubs during 2015/16.

    The first set of confirmed matches that will be broadcast (at the away club's ground) will be:

    Leeds United v Brighton & Hove Albion - Tues 19th August (7:45pm)

    Derby County v AFC Bournemouth - Tues 30th September (7:45pm)

    AFC Bournemouth v Derby County - Tues 10th February (7:45pm)

    The Football League's Chief Executive, Shaun Harvey, said: "While our overriding priority will always be to get as many people as possible to attend matches in person, we also have to recognise that a huge number of fans are simply unable to make long journeys during midweek to watch their team.

    "Thanks to the new fibre-optic network, the cost of broadcasting an away match to a club's ground is vastly reduced, making this initiative economically viable for the first time. It will now give clubs the ability to cater for the significant number of supporters that would like to watch the match had they the opportunity.

    "It will be up to the clubs involved in each match to determine whether it can be broadcast in this way and I would largely expect to see them entering into such arrangements in instances where they are playing a significant distance away from home during midweek or at matches where the away allocation is likely to sell out."

    Clubs will only be permitted to broadcast matches played at 3.00pm on Saturday in exceptional circumstances, as they fall within the 'blocked hours' under UEFA regulations.

    Football League clubs are being connected to ADI's Live Venue fibre network and through its SportsHub operations centre, live match feeds are distributed to global broadcasters, football clubs, and other stakeholders.

    wont this make away tickets cheaper?


  12. Laughable.

    Another completely unnecessary personal attack from some random account on owlstalk.

    We have an unbelievable fan base, one that's the envy of clubs across the country. But there are some people with agendas who are an utter embarrassment.

    am not sure what you mean?

     

    someone with some status on this forum posts some rubbish and i've said something. its no different to anything on this site.
