When Manchester United lost the title
one year, Alex Ferguson said that they
were STILL the best team…
Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger’s
“Everyone thinks they have the prettiest
wife at home”
See, when it comes down to it at the top
Opinions don't really mean anything.
You can argue all you want about "How good a
team you are"
(Just like Newcastle Coach argued he was the
best coach in the Premier League when his
team had just lost 8 games in a row)
ALL that matters in Professional Football
We see it in Kids Football too...
‘Every Parent Thinks They Have the Best
Player At Home”
They don’t all think that actually…
(I know because I speak to hundreds every
Most are level headed about it all.
But just like all of us, every now and then,
they ‘slip up’.
Lose all sense of reality…
None more so than during ‘Silly’ season…
(‘Schoolboys Trials’ which started this week)
‘Why hasn’t my boys been picked?’
Claiming their boy ‘deserves’ a chance
Yet the REALITY is. He hasn’t.
Now in kids Football, things are different.
Because as the top development coaches
agree, it’s not all about RESULTS…
As in the score-line.
But it IS about RESULTS in others ways.
None more so than people’s OPINIONS.
You can argue all you want about why
your son ‘should’ be given a chance.
But the REALITY is that all that matters
is the OPINION of the selectors.
Yet, instead of getting curious about how
they can IMPRESS the selectors…
A lot of players go to trials CLUELESS as
to HOW they will do THAT.
They have ONE good game.
Score a goal or two
Make a pass or two
And think that that ‘should’ be enough.
They also have a long list of ready made
excuses as to why things didn’t go their
They forget the NATURE of putting yourself
up against other players for a position
in a ‘higher level’ team…
Is that to get in you need to STAND OUT in
the minds of the selectors…
(READ THAT ONE OUT TO YOUR SON
AGAIN AND AGAIN)
There are no quick-fixes.
It may even be too late for your son
to get in this year.
(He doesn’t even NEED to get in…but that’s
But as the saying goes ‘the best time to plant
an Oak tree was 20 years ago…
The second best time..is NOW’
So what can you do NOW?
Help him drop the ego... admit that he’s not the
