    He’s not the saviour, did okay. Nothing to write home about, he fits into our average squad pretty well. He won’t pull up any trees but he is perfectly fine for us.
  2. Difference is they lot gave everything for the shirt and eachother.
  3. If we had a fully fit squad throughout this season hypothetically where do you believe we would come? Personally I think 7th-10th Had a good debate on a GC about this the other day, I just don’t think we have enough for top 6.

    Plan B?

    Pep is great for this sort of thing, I’ve watched countless things he’s shown and find it fascinating. He is on another level coaching wise. Invasion game always makes me laugh, on my B licence assessment the bloke made a mockery of that term. If you like the stuff you’re talking about David Adams (Swansea City academy) was absolutely fascinating on this sort of thing. He was one of my lecturers and opened my eyes. I agree on the philosophy regarding writing a piece but I think most managers have one and try to stick by it everywhere they go. It is very interesting
  5. I never once said it’s a coaching point. I said what I enjoy is there tactical side of the game. I agree about the resources but that doesn’t mean if it wasn’t available it wouldn’t be changed. I disagree with the last statement, women are gifted with a different skill set even in football to men, honing in on those would improve the women’s game and at the county development levels they certainly don’t train the same way as the men, from experience of some CPD events I can tell you that for a fact. Every aspect of coaching has the four corner model in mind, none of these work

    Plan B?

    Its philosophies, every manager has one. I’ve been lucky enough to be in some amazing seminars with managers and players who talk about this sort of thing. Every manager has one and sticks too it as much as they can. The fundamental principles of football are basically, to go from one end to the other and score. Don’t concede. They are that simple. These philosophies and identities that each manager has and teams in fairness are so so much more in depth than possession based. Had a great chat with my lecturer once regarding football as a science as how X makes a movement
  7. In honesty mate I don’t care if they make it smaller or not just thought it was an interesting topic and one of the top women’s coaches is for it. I guess she knows very little compared to the clowns of otib.
  8. Yes because I forgot they don’t bring the boundary in 20 odds yards in women’s cricket. Literally negates your point
  9. Have you read the article? I mean like do you not watch the goals and just laugh. I don’t think that goals make a great game, I’ve watched good 0-0s it’s your perception of football. Having studied for 7 or so years I enjoy watching the tactical side. Goals are great but there is another side to it
  10. I think it’s a good idea because of the physical differences and obviously the keeper being on average 5”5 would make a huge difference with smaller nets. Some of the goals keepers let in they can’t even get near. If the manager of Chelsea ladies and someone who people actually thought would be good as a manager of our club thinks it. I don’t understand why people who only watch football and have never studied the game or been involved in coaching etc would be saying it’s a ridiculous idea. She is someone with a position to have this opinion and I agree. But of course on here
  11. I just posted the same thing. Unfortunately this person doesn’t want to talk about the benefits. Would rather just tell me to listen to myself. Personally think it’s logical, as she explain average height of a keeper is significantly smaller than men. Would give keepers a chance and stop some ridiculous goals I’ve seen in recent years
  12. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/shrinking-goals-and-pitches-could-improve-women-s-game-dr022ptrx She’s a few badges ahead of me but pretty sure this women’s credentials are good enough to listen too. Not sure you’d tell her to listen to herself.
  13. Well I mean it was literally spoken about by Fifa so I don’t think I’m far off
  14. The level of the suburban league is poor but it still produces good games of football. Are you broken?
  15. Equality - The state of being equal. I compared the standard, because that’s what equality is. The level in the women’s game is of course the highest in England, however to be impartial and practice equality I compared it to the men’s game. It was a good game of women’s football. If you watched men play at that level, you would be watching Toolstation that was my comparison.
