A very simple bit about me and why I’ve created this blog.
I’m a huge football fan and still continue to play the game, mainly on Sundays, and for a while I’ve been thinking about venturing in to coaching. I’m still aiming to play for a number of years yet, but I figure that now is the time (whilst in my late 20s) to start building and developing my coaching skills so that I can continue in the game when I finish playing.
I’m very keen, having witnessed numerous England failings at a national level, to do something about what I think are the fundamental problems with English players and I also have ambitions to head in to coaching and management at a senior level when I’ve hung my boots up.
I’ve created this blog to use as a journal of my experience which I hope will help others and in time, I hope to move in to discussing coaching in more detail and create a source of coaching tips, techniques and schedules.
I’ll detail what I think about the failings of English football and young player develpoment within my blog, but for now I shall leave this section as a brief summary of where I’m at and who I am.
