Well, that would be different from mine :slight_smile:


#1302

Does not matter when it happens. Message is the same


#1303

I strongly agree with your point

Its u14.

Winning u14’s is highly over rated.

If it was Minor and they never won anything i might take a different view.

I would even seek counsel within club and tell chairman what you are at. Set a standard for the ckub


#1304

I think I’ve gauged the mood of the group pretty well and I’m happy the team performance will be at the same level with or without him. Plus a serious option to be springing from the bench at half time if necessary. Would be very difficult for the opposition to adapt to.


#1305

You’re the gaffer


#1306

I’m the boss. I’m the gaffer.


#1307

You are the coach/adult.

The players are incredibly selfish. Whike you should not ignore, you need to do the best thing for the club and goung forward as well


#1308

You sound like a brilliant coach for those lads. You must really be at their level.


#1309

That’s a low blow …


#1310

I’m disgusted it gained no traction. Good luck with the game. *


#1311

No harm having a bolter from the bench either


#1312

Winning u14s is fantastic but getting them all or as many of them as possible to 16,17,18 should be the ultimate aim and if you achieve that in today’s environment you have done a serious job.

The likes of @Brimmer_Bradley would be going gung ho to win his u14b title with young kids dropping out left right &centre so he can bang the cup above on the counter inside in Jimmy Macs pub in Gortnabollix.


#1313

Believe it or not buddy I’m the opposite, my strategy is to send them all home with a smile and hopefully they’ll be back next day, that’s club policy.
In my divisional role I’ll drive them on a bit. Not so worried then. The cream will eventually see through.


#1314

lads slapping him on the back and buying him pints


#1315

did you think you would be ready for the rigours of junior b yet brimmer? and prove yourself as a proper manager


#1316

Match off


#1317

Some gowls - should have been done two days ago


#1318

Not for a while yet. I have to work my way up from U10s.


#1319

That’s what it’s all about.


#1320

Out in the pissing rain this morning. Got a visit from COS and Sam Maguire to keep the kids spirits up.
