Wayne Rooney: A Talented 10 Year Old?

The Offside: Manchester United at related • 3 views

Because normal life isn't quite frustrating enough for me, a buddy and I spend 3-4 days a week coaching ten year olds in the fine art of how-not-to-fall-over-while-dribbling-a-ball (AKA – developmental youth soccer). Besides the occasional burst blood vessel and constant migraines, one of the more intriguing things to watch is the way that naturally talented players adapt to the game.

I remember so very well where I was when Steve McClaren was stood stony-faced beneath an umbrella in the pouring rain as England surrendered their opportunity to feature at Euro 2008.

Two rules permeate all when it comes to penalties:

i. The player who suffered the foul never, ever takes the penalty. Largely due to the fact that he's likely to have just suffered a knock, but also because it's just bad juju.

ii. Never take the ball from a teammate. Even if you don't know who the hell he is due to a recent arrival in the January transfer window.

Should Harry stay at Spurs or take England job? at related • 0 views

Harry Redknapp's been involved in football long enough to know that great opportunities are hard to come by. It's taken him many years to reach the level he has, so should he risk throwing it all away?

A look at previous England managers such as Eriksson, Keegan, Hoddle and McClaren proves that it's hard or even impossible to recover your reputation.

David Beckham had a dream. He wanted to get 100 England caps. However, he was stuck on 94 and looking in serious danger of falling short of his vaunted tally after new England manager Steve McClaren, just 11 days into the job, left Beckham's name off the team sheet for a friendly against Greece.

"I told David I was looking to change things, looking to go in a different direction, and he wasn't included with that," said McClaren at the time.

Best penalty ever taken?

If you haven't seen this amazing penalty by now then you've probably been on the moon.

Real Betis forward Calvente, invents a new technique never seen before (ok, ok, Pele did it way back before TV was invented).

The skill shown by the young Spaniard is simply break taking, watch his run up closely, the keeper and everyone else watching thinks he's going to shoot with his right foot, but some how he manages to shoot with his left without breaking stride.

The right result, now for the Premier League

Last night was all about the result and on that basis nobody can have any complaints this morning.

Yes, we all know how light the squad is, we know how many players we had out injured, but there really is no need to cover all the old ground again. As expected we started with Ramsey and Denilson in the centre of midfield and I thought overall they did pretty well.
