Default The end of the "soccer mom"....

How does allowing a team to use a couple fast forwards to always play boot ball (which is direct play) helpful to developing the rest of team players? This kind of moronic idea stems from short-sighted, spoiled, parents who are focused on wins, wins only to sooth their twisted egos so they might strut proudly on the way back to to their car post-game. This is exactly why the US is so very far behind in many things, especially soccer. Immediate gratification (wins) traded for long-term success (learning the game) drives these choices in club and rec soccer. One style of play (possession) takes patience and strategic thinking the other caters to emotionally immature children pretending to be sports educated soccer moms. You see mommy wants a win, so Coach better deliver.

These parents really just want to post / share a pic of their DD, sporting a medal from their latest boot ball win onto Facebook, and are more interested in filling out their latest scrapbook, than actually dreaming of their kids learning the beautiful game. The "Soccer Mom", ignorant of the game, drivin by boredom and ego, more intertested in bragging to the neighbor about their young kids meaningless weekend success, are the single worst thing to occur in US soccer. Tell Mom to shut up, stay home, away from the pitch, find a new hobby (kids sports are not an adult hobby) and stop ruining this game with your cursory knowledge of Soccer. Go back to school, volunteer at a homeless shelter, or just take up drinking during the day, but stay out of this game please.

Just find a better club and coach. Simple. Your rant borders on the the bizarre. P.S.: That's not why American soccer does not do as well as you would like.

I've never understood why the US Women's club has Alex Morgan up top. They should ignore her speed and put her back at holding mid.

This is example A of what the problem is. No one is saying that she shouldn't be up there but your simple mind thinks that all the US should do is play it long to her. Ever wonder why the US changed coaches? It is exactly because the previous coach was only doing that and other more technical countries were quickly closing the gap.

I think you should make a sign saying, "Boot it to Alex" and go to the next game and show it proudly...

Anyway I think we all agree on something. That makes at least 3 of us, although you never know for sure. This is a very strange thread and does'nt need any attention and it might have been best to ignore it.
