    English Championship & Football League Thread

    Congratulations to the mighty Portsmouth Football Club who won the Checkatrade Trophy by beating Sunderland on penalties at Wembley in front of over 85,000 fans. Hopefully they wont be able to defend it next season after winning promotion to the Championship. Can't wait to see the Mackems cover this in 'Sunderland Till I Die 2'

    Amateur Association Football

    Hi SomeGuy1977, There are some great tips there from scarcev and BBB, well done guys. Scarcev makes some excellent points and one I would particularly like to highlight is - Make it Fun and Make it Flow. If training is fun and the players are not standing around for long periods of the session, you've already made a great start as a coach. Don't forget to have fun yourself too! As far as coaching practices go there are more than enough ideas on YouTube for coaches and players of all abilities and experiences. I say 'ideas' because you can modify virtually any training activity to make it work for you and your team. YouTube is particularly useful because you get to visualize the practice session. If you are a Facebook or Twitter user there are also heaps of groups to join with coaching advice and training ideas. The Interweb also has many great websites with vast libraries of training activities. These mostly come with a subscription fee though but are great tools. I get the impression you are a little hesitant about getting the coaching gig. I assure you there is no need to be. Before you know it you'll see things you've worked on in training become a habit to the players and it'll all be worth it. Also, don't worry about whether you will be a 'successful' coach or not. I've seen many coaches win trophies over the years but the following season they need to rebuild their team because the players leave. I've learned that these are not 'successful' coaches. In my opinion, successful coaches are simply the ones who progress the players ability whilst getting the players to come back season after season. Make that your focus and you won't go too far wrong. I wish you every success and I'll certainly be interested in seeing how you and your team develop.
  3. On Feb 1, 2018, this was on twitter...https://mobile.twitter.com/oztransfers/status/958951511337312256 and was discussed on this forum. Warren Joyce dropped Kamau in March 2018 because of the possible transfer......https://www.foxsports.com.au/football/a-league/warren-joyce-says-bruce-kamau-was-left-out-of-squad-against-adelaide-due-to-speculation-hes-moving-to-the-wanderers/news-story/83d8f6fd69c51b3b49225502ffe0d4c3 The deals were arranged before Gombau got the boot.

    RD 19 - Adelaide - Sat 16 Feb 2019

    Still not sure if this is still TOD. In the past Wanderers fans have met up at The Gov... http://www.thegov.com.au/index.php/gig_guide/gig/e96353 . Not a bad pub with an outdoor area. Have taken kids there before, so family friendly. Only a short walk to the ground and close to the away bay. This would probably get my vote but happy to go elsewhere. The Gov have a live band on gameday in the evening, which could be an issue (Shake Your Booty: 70's Disco Show). Being 70's Disco, we shouldn't have any issue taking flares to the pub .

    In. That's another 4.
  6. We've only seen very small glimpses of his true ability. I'd like to see what he can do in red & black with better players around him.
  7. Disrupted train service from Lidcombe to SOP because of yesterdays storms. Allow plenty of time.
  8. For the first time I can remember we don’t have to walk across the drawbridge to get to our seats. Will be a smaller crowd today as Bon Jovi are in town. Ground announcer has just said Victory are ‘playing Sydney’s B team’..... wanker!
  9. Elrich had an excellent game at LB in the preseason game in Ballarat. He kept Barbarouses very quiet. If he is LB again, replicates that performance and Aussie Pat plays, we’ll have half a chance of getting something from the game.

    Two Points Ditched In Mudgee

    There were a few lost fans at the scoreboard end of the stadium who turned up at the wrong game. I spotted a Jets shirt, Adelaide shirt, smurf shirt and a Mariners shirt.

    Two Points Ditched In Mudgee

    Great idea but Newcastle fans would be travelling just as far as us. Unfortunately Mudgee doesn’t have enough accommodation available
