    THREE DIVISIONS the Plan

    As many don't predict till late it is difficult to judge how many will be taking part in the coming session but we should have 30 taking part in Division One and 30 plus in Division Two. Clearly from the recent poll the majority want three Divisions not two so this is the plan. Ideally I think...
  2. Heading the ball

    With the latest studies suggesting constant heading of the ball can be dangerous I would like to see all under 16 games having headers outlawed. I introduced sponge balls to training sessions 4 year's ago as I did not want the under 11s attacking the ball which had normally been pumped to...

    The Last 12 months of the Prediction League

    In the brief pause between the World Cup and the start of the new season I thought it me worth a quick review of the last eventful twelve months and gave praise again to the winners. It was a year ago that the Prediction League was split into four sessions each one of about 13 matches. First...

  6. Coaching kids..Fun or serious.

    Been listening to this particular debate where a football coach has been sacked for wanting his youngsters to win!,Imo too many grassroots clubs sign youngsters who should be no where near a football pitch mainly because they have nil skill and the manager will be forced to give them pitch time...

    Prediction League the PLAN

    After the results of the recent poll the Prediction League will be set up slightly differently to previous seasons. Firstly let me make it clear, that if you want to predict then nothing has really changed. You will have to predict 6 fixtures, southend's first scorer of the day, and use a...

    Lets save Spain

    Being deeply concerned by other posters comments regarding the current economic state of Spain as the Euro implodes on itself, I do not intend to stand idly by and watch things get worse.
