Hey Creepy,,,,,good to see you back you must be having a quiet day
OK ,,,U14/1s CHU lads had at least 4 or 5 teams involved in summer comps and some lads have been doing some extra training with Grading now just about complete they will line up for some trials in the coming weeks. Mail is they will be strong competition so good luck lads there my tip for another MP.
ona, With Lidcombe gone its hard to see who will challenge CHU this year. Merrylands will be CHU's biggest challenger but with the depth that CHU has at their disposal I back your tip. But remember its all about development

Hey guys, Some interesting reading . . . . The discussion about D vs W will go on forever, or at least as long as people cannot accept their primal desire for the W. From my limited experience, nearly all of the parents/spectators in D4 just wanted to win. And at least they were honest about their standpoint. In D3, a few started talking about D, but like a certain gender's climax . .it was never quite really understood. In D1, there was this huge shift in talk, all leaning towards D. The mantra of many became " D, and only D ". Except that all they honestly wanted was another win. And from what I have seen and heard in the super dooper youth system, most are even more delusional. The evidence of the " winning is everything " culture in these $1500 p.a clubs is amazing, disturbing and borderline disgusting at the same time. Parents being offered money for their son to play at another club, fees being secretly waived if your kid is good enough, trial games at 9-0 still being played ruthlessly by the winning coach, etc, etc, etc. The talk from the parents on the sidelines is amazing too. A win makes them happy. A loss brings out the old chestnut " it's OK, it's not all about winning". But the boys do look smart in their matching black slacks.
It seems to me that the further we go into the higher levels of the junior game, most people simply join the chant of D, D, D . . but all they really want is another win. Maybe it should be . . . Win today, and D will be OK. Of course, it's OK to want a win. Just come out and say it up front.
Anyhoo, it was good to see Ona saying that some clubs are concerned more with W than D. He must see it in spades at the level his boy is at.
A shame to see that LW may not be fielding a D1 side ( or a D2 side . . .).
Cdad, Kiffo . . . good to see your names again. Cdad, how dare you insinuate that a certain club is at an advantage because of their junior numbers. Kiff, you'll be pleased to know that the red tracksuit still gets a run on special occasions
And congrats to Cap'm on his latest appointment.
The water temp is still way up . . so see you out there !!!!
dunno who told you but they are wrong, we are nominating for Div 2 with most of our 13/3's plus 1 from fishin's team and a couple of newbies, zi reckon a mid table finish, how do I know, I'm the one doing the nominating
1 last time for the slow one everyone loves to win but there are other factors to coaching young ppl,some get it some dont.end of story and end off someone. it sayz alot when 1 team all of a sudden does not want to play for such a great coach anymore. for a team and a awesome coach to make the GF for 2 years 1 win 1 lose.and only 1 player playing and only playing because asomeone is not there anymore,WOW and his own sibblin not wanting to play.i want say to much as i dont want to break the forum rules and if i spill all the goss from someone within in someones x club i might get them into some sort of confrontation,so as OKO would say STAN dont go any farther with this and stop. so OKO stop i will oko will we be seeing you back in the reffing ranks this year?
This is my opinion and i don't give a toss what you think

Norwest boys had their first hitout yesterday with a solid run against Parklea 14/1 at the very early time of 8.30. Game finished 3-2 up with all players and coaches happy for the run. Anyone else out there blowing the cobwebs away yet?
8.30 start on a sunday in the rain at Parklea is not overly pleasing and only had 1 no show which isn't to bad. Our ground is now available for trials on weekends so am on the hunt for a few more before season kickoff. I think the noms all went in last night so we should know over the next week

And once more for the super coach with the impeccable record against lowly parent coaches . . . In 09, I had 8 of my best move up to the youth system. In '10, I had another 5 go up. The object of coaching junior football is to D.ev.elop the kids and send them on. Not to keep the talented under your jumper just so you have a team next year. You wouldn't have a clue. When you have . . A --- had more than 10 kids go through your guidance into the next level, or . .B --- Done something of note in junior coaching . . . won anything. Anything at all. . . please let me know. Until then, you are just talking about stuff you don't have a clue about. I'm typing slow so you understand . . . If a coach leaves a team, and everyone comes back next year because he's not there .. . then he might not have been a great coach. On the other hand, If a coach leaves a club, and only 1 kid comes back to play next year . . . then maybe if the coach might have been doing OK.
If you were half a junior coach, I would have gotten some satisfaction from flogging your boys every time. Fact is, your coaching is useless and ineffective from what I've seen. Now if someone like you was to leave a club, guaranteed the numbers for that team would increase next season.
Oh, and a sibling is a brother or sister. You PSC.
Fishin, Please refrain from using a persons real name..Tis norty..

oh and just so you know i have coached Junoirs football for 4 years at CHU opps and we won MP and GF and went to GF IN COC,,so when you play in COC come see me,,,,hahahahahah
For all that super effort and result . . you are still Owen to me. Owen 3, in case you forgot. I couldn't give a rats bum what you might have done in the past. Or to who you supposedly did it to. I didn't see any of it in the games you played against us. Owen. Are we back to thinly veiled threats again ? Your kidding, right ? I must have got the nerve smack bang.
Cap'm . . sorry, didn't realise I used his real name. What are the odds his initials are PSC ? . . . the Poor Silly Chappy.
fare call then if we are not talking about anyones past then fare call because you are in the past now bye bye. and for the name calling do you best i mean i would be very upset if my son didnt want to play for me either you know being such an outstanding coach and all.
opps you were talking about some sort of nerve somewhere
This is my opinion and i don't give a toss what you think

The thing about coaching is that different coaches have different styles. Most of the comments are correct in that development is a key importance for teens and so is being competitive. When the two are combined the results speak for themselves.
It requires a nice balance with the focus on fun, fitness and learning. Watching professional coaches interact with teens they seem to be able to instill a self confidence and work ethic that is enjoyed so much the kids don't realise just how much work they do and learning is not chore, it's a pleasure. The end result is better footballers. The kids are happy, the parents are happy, the club is happy, the coach in return feels a job well done. Win/win/win/win.
Of course we respect your opinion no matter how stupid it is!
