An old good MEMORIES

My old BUDDY wrote this about me!!
Like I SAID, just good ald MEMORIES
What Americans call soccer, the rest of the world calls football. What we call football, my good friend Walter Rasso will quickly point out, involves an oblong object that hardly resembles a ball, and is more dependent on hands than it is feet. Walter eats, sleeps and breathes futbol. He spends a lot of his time emailing professional soccer coaches and GMs, pointing out to them mistakes their teams are making and suggesting changes that he feels will be beneficial. For the most part, they do not listen. That's their loss. Walter has a wealth of experience and he's willing to share. He endorces a style that's dependent on short, quick passes and abhors the long easy-to-defend ping-pong-like exchanges so prevalent today. If you are interested in turning your team around, Walter is available for coaching and consulting. Just leave a comment or email him directly and he'll get back to you.

Being nagging about the way the game it's being played, didn't help a bit!!, still, nobody notice me!

Trying to get a Club with hopes of better themselves, fails again, because, not owners, presidents, or the ones in charge, have the guts, to do the change!!!

The old players, turned coaches, the SAME!!!

If I say, that I feel like a grumpy old man, will you believe me?, YES I DO!!! And I don't like it!!

That is the major reason, I'm going without posting nothing for long periods of time!!

Plus, WHAT CAN I SAY??? The game still played equal horrible then when I posted on the others comments, -today-, I'll just copy some of the old posts, and you'll see, IT'S THE SAME!!! way of play, NO TACTICS, Just close the eyes and kick the ball the farther you can!! Retreat, come back, don't attack with more then couple forwards -even if you are one goal down- nobody knows that is the same thing, lose for one goal, then for two!!!

For that reason - WHAT CAN I SAY???

But, I don't lose my enthusiasm that someday, somehow, somewhere, somebody with the resources, will want to do what I'm preaching for long time!! and with my knowledge, the contacts, and the main thing -GUTS- and in a couple of years being the Real Champions!!!


I do not comment game by game,I'm not a commentaries professional, just trying to help the beautiful game to come back to what is suppose to be!! (see post LAST WARRIOR)and if we win, but, played terrible, I'm not CONTENT!

But, what I'm saying for long time, IF one Country try to play good ball movements, and not going try to confuse the referees with that acts of been victimized, or, abusing the faults, IF JUST PLAY BALL would WIN!!

It's Clear (for me), that the player has to CREATE, if you are outside the 18 yards box, YOU have to create, face the defender, try your best footwork, pass him/her, and, you'll find out, that the goalie did his/her job, and close your shooting angle, -again- use YOUR BRAINS, fake, footwork AGAIN!! and put the ball nice and smooth, into the goal!! Easy?? It sounds, easy, that is the way is suppose to be!

Just a few MEMORIES of my posted thoughts, like I keep telling " Hope for the best".
