Moves like ……

2018-09-04T12:27:31+02:00July 5th, 2018|News|

It's been phenomenal watching some of the world's best players do battle at the World Cup in Russia. My take-away from this tournament has been just how small the gap between the so-called "big" teams and "small" nations has become. The influence of tactics on the modern game is definitely a [...]

3 days & counting

2018-09-04T11:55:04+02:00June 11th, 2018|App, Coaches, Parents, World Cup|

Just 3 days to go! Incredible how quickly the last 4 years have gone! To think, it feels like just yesterday hosts Brazil crashed out of the FIFA World Cup when eventual Champions, Germany, humiliated them in front of their home crowd. Over the next month, everything else seems [...]

I spent some time last week watching Manchester City, trying to understand just how Guardiola's teams become so dominant everywhere he goes? What is he doing better than everyone else? After a week of observation, research and pulling the limited hair I have on my head out, I'm no closer [...]

Be Relentless

2018-09-04T12:11:14+02:00May 21st, 2018|Development, News, Players|
