Since Club Website editor Dan Pope assessed the impact of England’s World Cup exit on the grassroots game, a number of you have had your say with some strong and insightful comments on the subject.
You’ve highlighted many areas of concern, covering everything from the ‘money culture’ at the top of the game to the quality of grassroots coaching; from the size and structure of kids’ small-sided football to the state of grassroots facilities.
Do you think kids football is sometimes taken too seriously? Are you fed up of seeing young footballers waiting on the touchline to get a game or stuck out on the wing waiting for a touch of the ball?
If so, then you’ll no doubt be interested to hear about ‘Football Football’, a new national football programme that aims to make the game fun for kids.
Now the dust has settled on England’s World Cup debacle, Club Website editor Dan Pope looks at where the national game goes from here and asks what can be done at all levels of the game to help turn things around.
Former FIFA referee and Club Website columnist Graham Poll has called on the game’s lawmakers to introduce a new ‘penalty goal’ to prevent the sort of cheating that helped Uruguay qualify for the World Cup semi-final.
