Too close (to the truth) for comfort, 22 Aug 2013
"Common sense is used so little these days, it should be classed as a Superpower!" If this were true then Matt Whitehouse would be Superman! In writing this book he brings together, no doubt, the same thoughts that many of us coaches have. But he goes beyond this to try to find the solutions - and none of them take a rocket scientist to figure them out! I'm sure that Matt won't take this as a criticism because it isn't. The Keep It Simple, Stupid is a mantra I swear by and that's what you'll find in "The Way Forward". In my opinion, Solution 17 is what will prevent the majority of this from ever happening, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't fight for it! This is the future of our National Game that we are fighting for! Any coach serious about his/her involvement in the youth game should read this book and see what you can do to make a difference!
