    As ever the media have taken a story and twisted it -

    https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www....nned-clapping-cheering-childrens-13372504.amp

    These silent games have been running in many parts of the country for several years.
    The reason being, at U7-U11 level you have parents and coaches yelling stuff, usually complete crap, at the kids while they’re trying to play.
    If so many parents didn’t try and live thier lives through thier kids, and so many coaches weren’t playing at being Jose Mourinho then they wouldn’t need to try these ideas.

    I completely agree. I now coach under 10’s and I’m lucky to have a decent group of parents who leave the coaching to me. In the past, I’ve had some horrendous parents who are constantly shouting at their sons. These are the kids who don’t tend to last long as they lose interest in football due to the pressure from their parents. Youth football is as much about having fun, as it is development.

    I’m more a Warnock than a Mourinho!

    Couldn’t agree more.

    I coached my lads team from under 8’s to under 16’s.

    People used to ask me how I coped with all those kids on my own. I used to tell them the kids were great, it was the dickhead parents that were the problem.

    What I will say is that now I go watch my grandson play and it’s totally different in terms of people shouting crap from the sidelines. It’ll be interesting to see if that continues in a few years when he goes up to 11 a side.

    My kid is playing in the under 14 level and sometimes the biased football fan in you sneaks out, no matter how hard you try.
    We have a decent bunch of parents with our lot who let the coaches coach without interference, but we played a team last week who are top of the league and a group of coaches and parents who take it far too far.
    They disputed a penalty then cheered like winning the world cup when this little 14 y/o kid missed ,it was fucking horrible, poor kid in tears.
    Winning is all that matters to some.

    We used to have a team like that when my lad was younger - poached the best players from other teams, brought their own ref, cancelled games when they had injuries, arsehole parents etc.

    We just used to play the nutters against them and kick lumps out of them. Act like cunts and get treated like cunts - as Churchill once said.

    When I played egg at school level there was this kid whose Mum would always shout "Kill him Mark!"
    Parents fighting the ref (the games teacher) was not a rare occurrence either.

    Raising a country of snowflakes.

    Might as well call it soccer if it’s all about the participation and not winning.

    One of my pet hates is this trophies for everyone culture.

    They do it with my girls netball teams, they are rubbish, but get this token “it’s ok to be last” trophy every year.

    Embarassing.

    It’s not about that, it’s about enabling the kids to actually enjoy playing the sport.

    Do you think a 7 year old kid is going to become a better player by having a 40 year old man yelling “wake up” at him from the touch line?

    By the way I’ve never heard of an “it’s ok to be last” trophy. Every mini / youth team I’m aware of have an awards day with player of the season, most improved, players player etc, but the lads get a small trophy/medal to acknowledge their effort over the season.

    This is what we’ve always done and we’ve got one of the best, and happiest bunch of U10s in Cardiff, with waiting lists at every age group, so I guess we must be doing something right.

    Obviously I wanted jazz hands but clapping will have to do.

    Apologies if this offends.
