Main problem with Scottish football imo. Kevin Bridges actually hit the nail on the head when he talked about the mental manager standing at the side screaming abuse at the weans.

 

Should be all about technique, fun and learning to control the ball at that age. This "win at all costs" attitude breeds bad behaviours.

Totally disagree,worse thing that's ever been done in 7 a side non competitive football that the kids now play. It's an utter nonsense,get back to 11 a side knocking f**k out each other and breed winners.

Yip!  There's far too much emphasis on winning instead of enjoyin guys like Stuart Dickson with experience of getting the best out of kids and making the kids enjoy their sport first and foremost.  No wonder there are so many professional sportsmen/women who can't be gracious in defeat.  I mean, they can't all suffer from the classic "single child syndrome" now can they?

are you Stuart Dickson?

Not in my experience they don't. Quite the opposite in fact.

It is as far as St. Mirren yout development teams are concerned.

 

In my experience they didn't really care if they won. It was all about finding players, developing players, trying them in different positions and making sure everyone got equal game time.

 

And also seeing which opposition players they could spot...


Better Together!

You want 5 to 8 year old kids playing 11 a side football ? No wonder football in this country is in the current state that it's in, if people have your attitude.

I understand your viewpoint but kids of 5 to 8 years should be playing non competitive 4 a side games. With the main emphasis on learning basic skills like ball control and actually enjoying the whole experience.
Not being isolated on a huge pitch playing eleven a side with a ball thats too heavy, and with so many kids on the pitch they very rarely get a touch of the ball, and spend most of the time running around in a big clutch chasing the ball.

They have years ahead of them and plenty of time to develope into competitive and hungry players .

Go to Ferguslie on a Saturday morning and watch the 2004s and you will see the above to be wrong. Is it right that 8 and 9 yr olds train 4 times a week and play 2 games on a Saturday and sometimes play a Sunday too?
